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

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

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

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 design,...

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...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her to...

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

A Case for the Unsubsidized Nexus One

I’m pretty excited about the launch of the Nexus One tomorrow (even though in Engadget’s video demo Android’s schmancy new Live wallpaper process crashes, see minute 4:09). Since my AT&T contract is up I’m planning on getting one along with a new two-year T-Mobile contract. Even though I hate getting locked into another contract, dropping almost $500 on an unsubsidized phone felt like a little too much. However, it looks like the phone plus a data-only T-Mobile...

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

Tidbits From The World Of Mobile Phones, Circa: Now

With so much going on in the mobile phone industry, I have decided to do a bit of a comprehensive round up. This is an essential update of all the intriguing new phones that you have had your eyes on. Like the X6, the N900, the HD2, etc. This is a strictly non-Apple/iPhone update, mainly because that needs a separate post. 😉 There’s a second part coming in a bit. Get over to the other side and get updated in the mean time. Nokia X6 To Land In The UK This Friday If you have been...

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

iPhone 3GS? Not Enough to Justify the Cost (and AT&T Sucks)

Asked my Twitter peeps whether or not they were buying the just-released iPhone 3GS, and 175 replies later, the response is a pretty solid NO. Almost 80% of respondents are passing on the 3GS mainly because they don’t think the upgrade is worth the money, they’re not eligible for the upgrade pricing, they think AT&T blows, they’re waiting for next year’s model, or they’re simply happy with their current phone. The other 20% were thrilled about getting...

System Update: Gravatars and Facebook Pics Now Showing

After six months almost 1,000 readers have registered for a commenter account here at Smarterware, either using Facebook Connect, OpenID, or just by creating an account. Obviously SW readers are the best-looking commenters on the internet, so it’s about time we see each other’s faces. After a little WordPress hacking, I’ve added Facebook profile pictures and Gravatar support to comments and user profiles, plus a few other tweaks that help you get to know your fellow...

Cuil: le timeline in un motore di ricerca

Cuil: le timeline in un motore di ricerca

Vi ricordate di Cuil ? Il motore di ricerca lanciato nell'estate 2008, che si vanta tutt'ora di aggregare il triplo delle pagine di Google . Cuil , termine gaelico per indicare "conoscenza", si pronuncia come "cool" ed è stato sviluppato da ex dipendenti di Google. In piena corsa per competere con i grandi motori di ricerca, Cuil si arricchisce adesso di una nuova funzione di visualizzazione dei risultati di ricerca: la timeline . Continua a leggere Cuil:...

DocMazy: motore di ricerca per documenti, xls, pdf, txt

Segnalo in questo post DocMazy . E' un servizio molto simile a DocJax , un motore di ricerca per documenti di cui ho parlato in questo post . Le differenze sono poche, ma significativamente a favore di DocJax che: aggrega i migliori risultati di Google e Yahoo; ha un servizio di community, che consente agli utenti, tra l'altro, di condividere link; è possibile effettuare ricerche sui tag; i documenti sono anche classificati per: i più visti, i più scaricati,...

DocJax: un motore di ricerca per documenti

DocJax: un motore di ricerca per documenti

Quando dobbiamo approfondire un argomento, generalmente le informazioni web più significative non si trovano in pagine html, ma in file pdf, doc, xls o ppt. Se vogliamo effettuare una ricerca in questo tipo di file, la migliore soluzione è probabilmente DocJax . DocJax è un motore di ricerca specializzato nei file doc, xls, ppt e pdf. E' vero che anche con Google è possibile effettuare ricerche sui soli file, in due modi: andando in "Advanced search";...
