Harvard’s computer science department is getting around $ 60 million from ex-Microsoft CEO and 1977 alum Steve Ballmer

Ballmer, who now owns the LA Clippers basketball team, hopes to remake Harvard into a world-class destination for computer science by hiring 12 top professors. Despite Harvard’s stellar reputation, its computer science program isn’t top 10

US News & World Report ranked Harvard’s department as the 18th best in the country, behind the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Maryland-College Park

Greenify works on a very simple premise – it identifies battery and memory hogging apps, those that cause your device to lag and slow down, especially the ones that run in the background that you don’t know of. The app then allows you to put these resource hogs into hibernation – which is simply, that they do not run AT ALL when you are not using them, no background services, no secret apps in the background, no nothing...
