Facebook phone?

By on August 25, 2012

A “Facebook phone” has been rumored for sometime, however — and many analysts regard its appearance as a matter of when, not if.
“really wouldn’t make much sense for us to do.” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a conference call with analysts the social networking company isn’t interested in developing its own mobile phone.
However, his denial hasn’t stopped the pundits from projecting that Facebook still has a handset in the works.
According to Bloomberg, Facebook Inc. is working with HTC Corp. to build its own smartphone for release as soon as mid-2013, people with knowledge of the matter said. The companies had intended to release the device as early as the end of this year, and pushed back the timetable to give HTC more time to work on other products.
Several sources said that Facebook, which urgently needs to find a way to make money from its growing number of mobile phone visitors, has already hired former Apple employees who are believed to be working with HTC on the new project.
Building its own device could allow the site to collect revenue from its existing advertisers more effectively by making sure their commercial content was distributed throughout the phone’s different functions.
HTC and Facebook have collaborated before – the ChaCha and Salsa phones both featured Facebook buttons. But the presence of OS engineers on the new Facebook Phone team suggests that the new handset will feature deeper integration than just a Facebook button.
So have all the rumors simply been hot air and will Facebook instead focus its efforts on improving a widely maligned mobile app? We will know in future.

Popular online file-sharing service LimeWire was shut down by a US federal court on Tuesday following a lawsuit filed by the music industry.
The move came a little more than five months after a US judge ruled in favor of 13 music companies in a copyright infringement and unfair competition case brought against LimeWire.
LimeWire.com featured a legal notice on its home page on Tuesday stating it was “under a court-ordered injunction to stop distributing and supporting its file-sharing software.”
The legal notice linked to the court order from US District Court Judge Kimba Wood ordering the closure of the service.
LimeWire chief executive George Searle said in a statement he was “disappointed with this turn of events.”
“We are extremely proud of our pioneering history and have, for years, worked hard to bridge the gap between technology and content rights holders,” Searle said. “However, at this time, we have no option but to cease further distribution and support of our software.”
Searle thanked users of the service and said “our team of technologists and music enthusiasts are creating a completely new music service that puts you back at the center of your digital music experience.”
“We’ll be sharing more details about our new service and look forward to bringing it to you in the future,” he said.
The 13 music companies filed their complaint against LimeWire in 2006 and Judge Wood ruled in their favor in May. In June, eight members of the National Music Publishers’ Association filed a separate copyright suit against LimeWire.
LimeWire software was released in August 2000 and uses peer-to-peer, or P2P, technology to allow users to share music or other files over the Internet.
LimeWire is owned by the Lime Group, a New York-based company.

The Apple iPad is TOO Hot

By on April 9, 2010

It seems as though the Apple iPad has been too hot, so hot that it is reported to be experiencing some overheating problems. After using it under the sunlight for some time, the editor of PC Magazine encountered an error message notifying him that the “iPad needs to cool down before you can use it”. It was so serious that he had to put it into the fridge to cool it down so it can be turned on again. It was also reported in several places that other customers are experiencing a similar problem too. The iPad has also been experiencing some Wi-Fi connection problems. Funny how the giant iPod Touch is having so much problems when basically they contain more or less the same things as the iPod Touch. Let’s hope Apple fix these problems before they launch it here in Malaysia.
