FreedomPOP: chiamate gratis via connettività mobile. Dopo Skype, Zennstrom ci riprova

Niklas Zennstrom, chi era, anzi, chi è costui? Semplicemente quella persona che, con la creazione di Skype, ha rivoluzionato il mondo delle telecomunicazioni, consentendo a chiunque possiede un PC ed una connessione ad Internet di chiamare gratuitamente altri possessori di computer, oltre che permettere notevoli risparmi nelle chiamate tra apparecchi VoIP e telefoni fissi. Non pago dei successi (e del denaro) finora avuti, ha deciso di applicare gli stessi concetti anche alla telefonia...

Facebook arriva la VideoChat

Facebook arriva la VideoChat

Facebook arriva la VideoChat Con l’apparente inarrestabile successo che Facebook riscuote, Mark Zuckerberg ed i suoi soci hanno pensato bene di realizzare una nuova caratteristiche per arrecchire la dotazione della loro creatura: la videochat. Dopo le varie partnership con i più famosi software di comunicazione VoIP ed averli resi social network friendly, grazie all’uteriore unione di Facebook con Skype, si è pensato bene di appoggiare il servizio proprio al programma...

Work Smart Video: How to Stay Productive on the Road

Work Smart Video: How to Stay Productive on the Road

I’ve travelled to 9 different cities already this year and I’ve got 4 different major work projects going on, so keeping on top of everything on the go is something I’ve had to get good at out of necessity. This week’s Work Smart video is a question from Daniel Beck, a work-at-homer like I am, about how to not let your whole organization system fall to pieces once you leave your (home) office. I was lucky enough to get none other than David Allen to agree...

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

The second season of my Work Smart video series at FastCompany.com premiered yesterday, with a question from Suhasini Kotcherlakota about how to take better meeting notes, and some answers from me and Brad Isaac, who wrote a great piece on mind-mapping meetings at Lifehacker a few years back. Despite the fact that I still can’t watch and listen to myself on film without cringing, I am so pleased with the results. Adam Barenblat at FastCompany did an amazing job on the art and...

Remove Skype From The Windows 7 Taskbar

Remove Skype From The Windows 7 Taskbar

Skype users who have switched from Windows XP or Windows Vista to Windows 7 recently may have noticed that the Skype icon remains in the Windows 7 taskbar even if Skype is minimized. This was not the case in the other two operating systems, and frankly it should not be that way. Two options are available to remove Skype from the Windows 7 Taskbar. The first solution is to run Skype in Vista compatibility mode. A right-click on the Skype icon in the Windows start menu and the selection...

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

Spent several hours running around town doing tedious errands the other day in neighborhoods I don’t know well, so I was thrilled to finally tap the “Navigate To->Home” button on my GPS when I was done. It got me wondering: what are the software buttons you just can’t help but love to tap, click, or press? An informal poll on Twitter unearthed a bunch of good ones: your email’s Out of Office “Enable” button, “End Call,” “Mark...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

TWiG Live from SXSW

TWiG Live from SXSW

Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him...
