1.) Today was supposed to be a day that Google took the tech world by storm with its Android event. Instead, it’s a storm that has cancelled the Google event. It was expected this morning in New York City that Google would detail its next version of Android, and rumors were it would also announce a new Nexus phone made by LG and a new Nexus 10 tablet made by Samsung. Facebook also cancelled two big product announcements it had scheduled to make in New York City thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

Women who quit smoking before age 40, avoided more than 90% of the increased smoking death risk, while women who stopped smoking before age 30 reduced smoking-related death chances by 97%.
