American Idol is partnering with Google and Facebook this season so that fans can make a bigger impact on the show. For the first time, Idol fans can vote for their favorite finalist performers using Google search, whether they’re on their computers, phones, or tablets. Searching any idol-related term will reveal a voting platform that can be shared on Google Plus. Facebook will give updates during voting to let viewers see how their favorite finalists are faring in the voting polls at a given time. Also, a viewer’s Facebook comments and profile picture could be featured in the live show.

And, the makers of a new fashion app, called Postelio, believe every fashionista should have a team of friends to consult before making any sudden purchases. Postelio lets you pick your team of four most fashion-forward friends and family. You can get their opinion on clothes through your smart phone, all while you’re out shopping. You can also check out what’s trending around you,  and get top deals while you shop.  It works for both iPhone and Android.

That’s your Daily Tech.
