Twitters real time search results disappeared from Google back in July as their previous deal had run out and the two companies were unable to reach an agreement on the new deal.

Microsoft also had an agreement with Twitter for real time search results in its Bing search engine, and unlike Google it would appear that Microsoft has been able to come to a new agreement with Twitter.

The two companies announced the new deal on Twitter, and whilst no details of the deal have been revealed, the original deal ran for around two years so they could have signed a new two year deal which will include Twitter results in Bing.

We have featured a number of DIY and homemade alarm clocks here at Geeky Gadgets, the latest one is the creation of Mike Krumpus from Nootropic Design, the Defusable Alarm Clock.

As you can see from the photo and video below, the Defusable Alarm Clock is designed to look like a bomb, and it is a fully functional alarm clock, the only way to shut it up when it goes off is to correctly diffuse it.

The Defusable Clock is a fully-functional alarm clock just like you’d expect (a normal beeping alarm, snooze alarm, etc.). But at any time you can press the big red button to start a scary countdown sequence exactly like bombs in Hollywood movies. There are 4 wires across the top of the clock. You have 10 seconds to choose the correct wire to cut: one wire stops the countdown and saves the day, two have no effect, and one will "detonate” the device immediately.< ... Read more »
