California-based Zurb is turning the dry science of usability on its head by using Twitter and Facebook APIs to socialize user testing.

Google announced yesterday that it is shutting down the consumer version of Google+. The news came alongside the reveal of an API vulnerability discovered earlier this year. The company will provide 10 months for users to download their content.
