Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2011

Microsoft’s Mango update for Windows Phone 7 had some more features unveiled today. The release will have built-in instant messaging for Windows Live Messenger and also for AIM and Facebook. Microsoft’s system is smart and weaves into the people hub, automatically detecting which is the best network and create group messages.

Integrated SkyDrive and Office 365 will be included in Windows Phone 7.5. Microsoft is rumored to be building support for editing documents with Internet Explorer 9 mobile. Other features include album art on the lock screen with an active track and syncing for the games hub to pick up progress from an Xbox 360 game on WP7 or the other way around.

Google Wave: Like chat, IM, Twitter and Google Docs in real-time

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 28th, 2009

Google WaveGoogle wave should be making waves in no time. Think of it like a live chatroom with a spread of documents, photos and/or videos, where you can reply to any part of any message or anything that’s shared, and it all operates in real-time. Basically TMI.

It’s a combination of Twitter, IM, Friendfeed and other service with semi-real-time stuff. In Google Wave, you can share and collaborate on projects, and all of this is going on at once. Probably great for those with ADD. You start a wave with any message or photo or whatever, and you bring people into the stream, and then they can bring people in.

Fast Finger Keyboard keeps letters in order

Fast Finger Keyboard keeps letters in orderMost of us are happy with a nice QWERTY keyboard. Why not have a keyboard that has the ABC’s one letter after each other the way nature intended? The Fast Finger Keyboard is exactly that keyboard. There are three ways to use it. If you are just learning typing, the keys are layed out on the keyboard in alphabetical order. Just press the ‘ABC’ button and the keys will type in that order.

But if you are ready to take it to the next level, you can use it as a normal QWERTY keyboard. The letters are layed out on the keyboard under the ABC keys in red. The other thing this keyboard does is when the ‘F’ key is pushed, IM abbreviations are available with the function keys. “CYA”, “LOL”, and “BTW” etc.

i-Knock IM notifier hits it’s own head, with a hammer
Sing it with me. “Bang bang i-Knock’s silver hammer came down upon his head…”. If you’re looking for a different kind of IM notifier, this might be for you. That is if you don’t mind watching this little guy whack himself on the head every time you get a message. With a really creepy voice I might add.

You can customize it with mp3 files for any of your contacts. Hear a different mp3 song when your different contacts send you a message. It works with Skype, MSN, and Yahoo Messenger. Check out the video of this thing in action. I’m confident it will thoroughly creep you out and make you thank the great gadget God in the sky that you do not own one.

Vtech IS6110 cordless phone with QWERTY keypad & IM
Now, here’s a great way to introduce those, um, older folks to things like IM conversations and the like. You won’t need one of those smartphones the kids are using these days. Now you can do IM conversations via a landline telephone. That’s right, this is the industry’s first instant messaging cordless phone.

Don’t believe me? Just have a look at the full-fledged QWERTY keypad. The phone’s base station just has to be connected via USB to a PC, after which users can have free access to MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger. Seriously, this is the best way to ease these old folks into the the modern era. It’ll only cost you $99.95.

i-Buddy: Instant Messaging just got creepy

i-Buddy: Instant Messaging just got creepy

You know that little pixellated figure that pops up on screen every time a contact logs on? Kinda cute right? And you feel safe and warm, knowing that human contact is on the way. After all, it gets lonely on the computer. Well, set your engines for creep factor 10. Engage.

This rather ominous and somewhat tubby i-Buddy wants to be your new friend. Just sit i-Buddy on your monitor or desktop and it will respond to incoming MSN messages. His head will glow and his wings will flap. You can almost feel the tension as this thing seems to be looking at you, no matter where you are in the room, like some velvet Jesus painting, but twice as sinister. You aren’t sure what he wants from you, but you are positive he can rip thoughts from your mind if he so wishes. The i-buddy manages to be even stranger then the Availabot we showed you in October. And he was a tiny man who went flaccid when the IM contact leaves.
