Mistakes are inevitable. They are forgivable too, but only if one has the courage to admit them. But a retailer in Australia seems to be taking a different approach. Australian-based retailer Harvey Norman accidentally listed the pricing of the Nokia 920 as worth AUD $699 while the less-speccy Lumia 820 was priced a hundred dollars even more – AUD $799.

According to the New York Times, Twitter is planning to update its mobile platform by introducing filters for photos that will allow people to share images on Twitter while bypassing Instagram. “The filters on Instagram make photos look like they were shot with 1960s Kodachrome or with 1890s sepia tone film,” reports the NYT.
