Microsoft update for Windows 8 Weather app includes ski resort data

Microsoft has updated its Weather app for Windows 8. The changes include new interactive and dynamically-moving weather maps for cities and regions, satellite images, temperature and precipitation levels, cloud cover, and radar pictures. The Bing blog also notes that weather details for ski resorts in 31 countries around the world are also provided in the update.

Budweiser creates cups that automatically friends people via toasts

Budweiser has created glasses that can make people friends on Facebook. The "Buddy Cup" is loaded with a chip that, when it detects two glasses have clinked together in a toast, automatically makes the two toast participants friends on the social network, writes CNET. A QR code on the bottom of each cup is scanned by the drinker as they receive it, linking their Facebook account to the chip inside the cup. Budweiser's Brazilian team hopes to use the cups in future promotional events.
