first_imgAdvertisement A new campaign from Burberry and Google has brought one of humanity’s most iconic forms of communication, the kiss to your finger tips. Now, though, you can send a kiss to anyone, anywhere in the world, through Burberry Kisses.To get started, simply visit kisses.burberry.com and pucker up in front of your webcam (this works best on Chrome). Using unique kiss-detection technology, the site will detect the outline of your actual lips, which you can choose to dress up with a Burberry lipstick color.[related-posts] – Advertisement – If you’re using your touch screen mobile or tablet, you can actually kiss your screen (you might want to wipe it off first) and your lip outline will be taken from there. After that, write a short message and send it to someone from your Google+ friends list or via email. Then sit back and see the envelope with your message fly from your city to the receiver’s destination across a 3D landscape. The receiver gets an email, from which they can see the same journey, read your message and hopefully respond with a kiss of their own.Watch the video below for an introductionSource: Google Bloglast_img read more

The moment Twitter will detect that accounts are repeatedly tweeting at accounts that they don’t follow, or engaging in unspecified other activities likely to signal abuse, the company will temporarily limit their access to the platform.[related-posts]source: TechCrunch and IANSlast_img read more
