SkyRemote Brings Remote Desktop Control & Sharing To Skype

 

SkyRemote is a plugin for Skype that automatically detects people from your list with SkyRemote already installed, lets you easily share your desktop with them (remote desktop), control theirs and record sessions to AVI files. It allows you to share your desktop with multiple people simultaneously while maintaining session quality. The plugin uses Skype features such as certification protocol, strong encryption and communication layer and connection management, allowing you to share your own desktop and control someone else’s over a secure connection provided by Skype. It comes with a custom display mirror VGA compatible driver that boosts both local and remove desktop performance without replacing your old display driver.

After installing SkyRemote, you will have to launch the application separately after Skype starts. Allow access to the application in Skype by clicking Allow Access.

Once the application starts, it will automatically detect other people in your Skype friend list who have SkyRemote installed, and they will appear in the system tray menu. Right-click the application to view Status, Request Remote Desktop and Share Desktop.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
