Free Calls on iPhone and Android via Viber

Everything that is free is always welcome. Same goes with phone calls.

I found this app recently for my Android phone. It's called Viber. With it you can call your friends and family for free. It will import all your contacts, sync personal details and accounts. And the most awesome feature is it's sound quality. Calls sound a lot better than my regular carrier. Of course to use it you'll need access to mobile data services or WiFi. I should also mention that it doesn't consume much bandwidth. I think it's in the range of 240KB per minute up and down. That's about 14MB an hour. Pretty neat.

New Windows Look: The Metro UI

Microsoft has done it again. Windows 8 is going to be another success like Windows 7. This time in my opinion, even greater success than Windows 7.

Just take a look at this beauty. The Metro UI is awesome and user freandly, I can't wait to test this out for my self. Of course you will also get the "classic" windows 7 desktop for the regular applications.

What do you think about the new Windows 8 look?

The Patent Troll Claims Another Victim

Samsung pulled from IFA trade show in Germany, their latest tablet. The Galaxy Tab 7.7. This ofcourse after the PatentTroll Inc. (AAPL) won a second injunction blocking the tablet from German markets. This comes after the ban in the EU of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Again, a legal victory of the PatentTroll Inc. (AAPL).

“Samsung respects the court’s decision,” Chung said, adding that the company believes it “severely limits consumer choice in Germany.” Samsung will pursue all available options, including legal action, to defend its intellectual property rights, he said.

Samsung and Apple, maker of the iPad, are involved in legal disputes across three continents, as Apple -- also one of the biggest customers for the South Korean manufacturer’s chips and displays -- claims the Galaxy devices copied its iPhone and iPad. Last month, the Dusseldorf Regional Court granted Apple a temporary sales ban on the earlier Galaxy Tab 10.1 model in 26 of the 27 European Union member countries.

Whom will Apple sue next? God?

Lately, Apple has become really good at Patent Trolling. In the smartphone industry, first was HTC, now it's Google's turn the get the "wrath" of the patent troll. Apple claims that the Android platform started with them.
"Apple to ITC: Andy Rubin got inspiration for Android framework while working at Apple, hence infringes an Apple API patent"
Former Apple employees that have their own businesses, beware! Apple will sue you if you develop something innovative, claiming that your idea was inspired while working at Apple, making all your thoughts theirs.

Google Services CleanUp

Google announced "Fall spring-clean". Google will clean, over the next few months, services and products that didn't quite take-off. Google's reason for this is: "This will make things much simpler for our users, improving the overall Google experience. It will also mean we can devote more resources to high impact products—the ones that improve the lives of billions of people."

Some of the products will have a negative impact to some developers. For example, the discontinued development of the Google Maps API for Flash.

This is the list of doomed products and services:
  • Aardvark 
  • Google Desktop 
  • Fast Flip 
  • Google Maps API for Flash 
  • Google Pack 
  • Google Web Security 
  • Image Labeler 
  • Notebook 
  • Sidewiki 
  • Subscribed Links
