### C program to sort a given array using Quick Sort algorithm

#include<stdio.h>
#define swap(a,b,c,temp1) {temp1=a[b];a[b]=a[c];a[c]=temp1;}
//Sorting an array with QUICKSORT
void sort(int *arr,int p,int q);
int partition(int *arr,int p,int q);

int main()
{
int arr[]={3,7,4,2,6,0,5};
int i;

sort(arr,0,6);

for(i=0;i<7;i++)
printf("%d",arr[i]);

return 0;
}

void sort(int *arr,int p,int q)
{
int temp;
if(p<q)
{
temp=partition(arr,p,q);
sort(arr,p,temp-1);
sort(arr,temp+1,q);
}
}

int partition(int *arr,int p, int q)
{
int pivot,i,b=p-1,temp;
pivot=arr[q];
for(i=p;i<=q-1;i++)
{
if(arr[i]<=pivot)
{
b=b+1;
swap(arr,i,b,temp);
}
}
swap(arr,b+1,q,temp);
return b+1;
}

The world's most popular social networking site Facebook pays its interns nearly \$74,000 (Rs 40.7 lakh) a year in a bid to attractyoung talent, according to a report.

### Yahoo got new CEO : Google's vice president Marissa Mayer

One of Tecca's 10 most influential women in tech just got a lot more so. Marissa Mayer, employee number 20 at Google and a key player in many of its products, has left the company to assume a new role as president and CEO of Yahoo. Mayer, who this past April was nominated to the board of Wal-Mart, was approached last month about the position. Up until her departure, she had been in charge of Google Maps and location-based services, holding a seat on the company's elite operating committee along with its co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. She replaces former Yahoo head Scott Thompson, who resigned in May following a stir involving the validity of his academic credentials. Thompson was only with the company for four months, and after his departure Yahoo reportedly courted the likes of Hulu boss Jason Kilar. Mayer's name was never mentioned as a potential candidate at the time. In her new position, Mayer ranks among a handful of female CEOs of major American tech compa…

### Indian HC removes 200 SMS per day limit

The Delhi High Court today set aside the cap of 200 SMSes per day sent through a mobile phone SIM for personal communications but upheld the curb on unwanted commercial SMSes saying they infringed the "equally" important right to privacy of "unwilling recipients." "We are, therefore, of the opinion that the impugned provision (of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) insofar as it covers non-UCCs (Unrestricted Unsolicited Commercial Communications) SMS in the present form as it exists, infringes the freedom of speech of the citizens. "And the conditions imposed upon the freedom of speech is not reasonable which would be protected under Article 19 (2) (which deals with reasonable restrictions of freedom of speech) of the Constitution," a bench of Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said. The bench, however, made a distinction for unsolicited commercial calls and said that the restriction imposed by the Trai on them wa…

### Digg is sold, after years of decline

New York tech incubator Betaworks acquired the website Digg on Thursday in a deal that included the remaining brand assets, a humble close to what was once a celebrated online property that heralded the social media era. Launched in 2004 by then 27-year old Kevin Rose, Digg rose to prominence as an aggregator of online content, becoming at one point one of the more highly-trafficked stops on the Internet. The site let users vote up - or "Digg" - links, an early precursor to how Facebook (FB.O) and Twitter help spread "viral" content today. The deal was worth just \$500,000, the Wall Street Journal reported. The sale came after the majority of Digg's engineering staff left in May for Social Code, a subsidiary of The Washington Post Co (WPO.N). "Over the last few months, we've considered many options of where Digg could go, and frankly many of them could not live up to the reason Digg was invented in the first place -- to discover the best stuff on the w…
