Who or what is Firefox Hello? That is Mozilla’s Skype. Do we really need one more Skype in an endless sea of more or less similar apps? Well, it seems that there are some busy little bees in Mozilla, who have decided to offer something different and interesting at the same time. So, what is Firefox Hello all about?
Imagine a chat or call feature integrated into your Firefox browser. Would not that be a lovely thing to have and use? No need to log or install a special app. Now, you got the whole picture. This kind of a Hello can really shake the IT ground. You are offering something, which is simpler to use.
You do not have to guess twice that Microsoft is not going to be thrilled with this sudden and quite an unorthodox competition. This is undoubtedly an intriguing and original concept. Let us wait and see, how it is going to work in the real cyber life. There are quite a few practical questions to be solved.
How you are going to contact your friends? Can you save your conversations? There are so many things we are eager to test ourselves. Either way, this is a strong encouragement for all of you dreamers out there. Who could have thought that it would be possible to talk and chat in your browser? Keep dreaming.
The world of smartphones is an endless ocean, where almost anyone can find his goldfish to grant him much than three wishes. This is not a joke, and it is far from a simple exaggeration. All you have to do is to play smart and be extremely focused. It seems that this formula perfectly works for the Omate brand.
We are talking about a smartwatch, which is not particularly smart. At least not in the terms and features of the Samsung Gear and iWatch. However, this one is perfectly suited for women. The Omate smartwatch comes with the impossible to resist design for women. You got that as soon as you see it.
The features are only formally compatible with the smartwatch category. Although, it is fully compatible with both Android and IOS, it can provide you only with the simple notifications and a little bit upgraded functions in comparison with the regular watch. One more time, it is designed for women.
What is that supposed to mean? With all due respect to all ladies out there, this one is supposed to be likeable to your eyes, primarily. In plain English, the Omate focuses on the gorgeous ladies, rather than to rocket scientists and IT geeks. If you can live with it, then this is the right choice for you.
Sometimes you cannot avoid a serious confusion. Those merciless IT analytics messing up with our lives. On the one side, we have dark predictions that the PC industry is at the very edge of extinction. On the other, we hear some voices that there is a surprising growth of almost 10%. Why is that a surprise?
Well, it is pretty much obvious, isn’t it? We live in the mobile world. Who need a PC, when you can carry it with you in your pocket? It seems that grandpa Microsoft strongly disagrees. We have to thank Microsoft for ensuring this positive survival percentage for the shaken PC industry. What is the catch?
If you can manage to offer a configuration, which costs no more than $250, then Microsoft can jump in with the Windows 8.1 and an integrated Bing browser. The message is clear. If you can do something about your own costs, then Microsoft can be a little bit generous when it comes to the licensing.
Finally, some reason in the difficult situation. Microsoft does not want to end up like the dinosaurs. It is going to fight back, no doubt about it. For what is worth, Microsoft can afford itself a luxury of being generous in all of its wealth. Better to keep something, than to profit on nothing. Right?
Lenovo is dead serious about acquiring the BlackBerry. The first time, Lenovo announced its intention the Canadian Government had some serious concerns about the national security. Do we have to mention that for quite some time the BlackBerry has been the number one choice in the White House?
For what is worth, the times are changing, in an inevitable and unstoppable way. The BlackBerry has done its very best to survive in the new mobile world. We have seen the unusual Passport model. That was a nice shot worth of admiration and our sympathy, but at the end of the day we were back at the beginning.
Once upon a time, the BlackBerry was the primary business choice in the USA where one in two mobile phones had a logo of this respectable Canadian mobile pioneer. It turns out that Lenovo has become the collector of the famous names from the dawn mobile phones such as Motorola and BlackBerry.
We sure hope that Lenovo is not only after the BlackBerry’s mobile patents. This is a sad fate of Nokia and Motorola. On the other hand, the mobile patent incomes Microsoft gets from Nokia reach almost one billion dollars on a yearly basis. Lenovo is up to its second win-win takeover in the mobile world.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is ready to hit our cyber space. Once more, Google lived up to his reputation. We knew that is going to be a candy, and that is going to begin with the letter L. Google has taken care about everything else. We really admire its style to present the newbie systems in a funny way.
The Lollipop is not an exception in this story. It is really a great way to use the Flappy Bird theme for its presentation. With some suitable modifications, of course. You will be flying from the right to the left side, from the beginning. What is even more important, you will be flying through the lollipops.
According to the numerous rumors and designer’s spoilers we are supposed to be blown away by the visual improvements and modifications. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that the Lollipop will ensure the sovereign rule of the Android as the indisputably most popular mobile platform in the world.
Maybe, it is about time for Google to examine the possibility of promoting the Android into something larger than its mobile life. The new OS, which will be used not only for smartphones and tablets, but also for computers. Why not? The Lollipop is a delicious candy in every form available. Right?
If you know some basic words from the German vocabulary, then the last name Neubauer definitely rings a bell. Jonas Neubauer is the four-time world champion, when it comes to the Tetris game. Now, let us find some obvious symbolism in its last name. Neu is new, and Bauer is a builder.
Tetris is all about building blocks. So, it could not possibly ask for a champion with a more suitable name. For this young man Tetris is more than just a game, it is a way of living. Yes, it sounds like a boring phrase, but there are a couple of things we can sure learn from this humble world champion.
In the first place, he never rushes the blocks down. For him, every single block has its perfect position, which is a unique match. All you have to do is to find it. Neubauer looks at blocks in his head in the slow motion mode, as if he is in the Matrix movie. This is something we can try to use in our lives.
The message is quite a simple one. Each element, thing and person has its perfect position in our life. All what is required from us is to find it. Neubauer practices this unique life philosophy every single day. This is something definitely worth remembering. It is about time for you to match your blocks.
We have heard so many stories about the social alienation caused by the modern technologies that we take these claims for granted. Yet, there are some minority reports, which take into account what people really feel about them. The results strongly contradict the mainstream sociology opinions in this field.
It has become more than obvious that the trigger for a certain social behavior positive or negative is in our mind. There is no smartphone in the world, which can make you to alienate from your loved ones. On the other side, if you are an introvert person, then a smartphone is a true blessing for your life.
New technologies have brought new opportunities. It is up to us to decide how we are going to use them. The last thing we need is a prejudice as our conversation partner. The smartphone tide will continue reaching even the most distant shores, and there is nothing we can do about it, this way or another.
We should join the party. This is our word of advice. It is not a rocket science, but it can ease your pain and fears. We leave it for you to decide how to use it in your personal life. More friends or more solitude, this is and should always be your choice. Even the most pessimistic sociologists use the smartphones. Right?
