Something to announce?
Companies seem to be on an 'announcement frenzy' today and Kipp simply doesn't understand why...

Do you remember in 2004, 2005, 2006 and maybe even 2007 when Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, repeatedly said that ‘Facebook is free and always will be’? Well, he’s had a change of heart since then, but come on people, who are we to question his decisions?
After all, it’s a brilliant service and it’s been free for almost 9 years now. It’s about time we put a stop to our ‘freeloading’ ways and started chipping in. It’s got more than one billion users, and I am sure that more than half of them will be willing to pay for it. The best things in life are free, but does Facebook make that list?
Here are a few of the other fascinating announcements:
Wamda.com, ‘a platform designed to empower entrepreneurs in the MENA region’, has launched a new ‘Wamda Juice’ for entrepreneurs.
Spinneys in Dubai places a newspaper advert for the exclusive chance to purchase a strange kind of fruit. It’s clearly a genetic mutation of a pear and a papaya.
Nasa’s rover, Curiosity – which is still currently on Mars – has decided to quit Twitter after being abused by ‘internet trolls‘ and realising it just can’t handle the pressure anymore.
Tesco, a UK-based food retailer, has launched The Tesco Value 3D Food Printer that allows you to produce the products you want at home.
