Facebook “Messenger For Windows” Desktop Chat Client Leaks, Will Challenge AIM

The test group for “Facebook Messenger for Windows” just got a whole lot bigger. Israeli blog TechIT has leaked a Facebook CDN download link for the desktop chat client Facebook began testing with a small number of users last month. The client includes notifications and the Ticker which link back to, and therefore could drive engagement with the website. Messenger could also pull market share away from other desktop chat clients like AOL Instant Messenger and Windows Live Messenger. The client will help Facebook in two core ways: Persistent access to Chat will increase engagement of the primary user, and also draw their friends to spend more time on Facebook Persistent access to notifications, messages, and friend requests that launch may lead to more return visits than users haphazardly stopping by the website to check for these alerts I just tested the Facebook Messenger for Windows client version 2.0.4373. It’s snappy and functions intuitively. It can flo…

Basics To Know Before Moving From A Windows PC To An Apple Mac

Changing phones, email providers or web browsers is something that takes a lot of conviction and adjusting to; imagine if you felt compelled to change your OS? The move would definitely be a bigger adjustment and if you’re switching from Windows 7 to Mac, since the adjustment would probably be equivalent to sleeping on the opposite of the bed. This guide helps you ease in to that adjustment. It is neither a feature list nor a comparison between the two operating systems. It was written just to tell you where the electric box is, and how the plumbing works. Briefly, we will look at how you can search for apps, files and folders on your Mac, find and install apps, manage windows and finding system preferences. The difference between a Mac and Windows will be apparent the second you start your system. First thing you want to get to know is how you are going to do anything on a Mac, and by anything, I mean opening a file/folder, where do files and apps go, and what to expect instead of ‘M…

BlackBerry Torch 10000 spotted in Asurion Mobile Protection system

I’ve been curious to see where RIM would go with its next generation model numbers since we’ve reached numbers as high as 9930 and 9981. According to the system for Asurion which is a company that insures mobiles, a BlackBerry Torch 10000 for AT&T is listed. This device could and SHOULD be the new QNX (BlackBerry 10) enabled BlackBerry smartphone It looks like RIM is going with 5 digit model numbers now instead of the 4 since they ran out. This is interesting.

Apple's Multi-User Face Recognition Plans for iPad Revealed in Patent

Back when the iPad was still just a rumor, the Wall Street Journal reported that one of the features that Apple had been working on with their upcoming tablet was the ability to recognize users by face. One person familiar with the matter said Apple has put significant resources into designing and programming the device so that it is intuitive to share. This person said Apple has experimented with the ability to leave virtual sticky notes on the device and for the gadget to automatically recognize individuals via a built-in camera. It is unclear whether these features will be included at launch.The effort was part of Apple's efforts to make their new tablet a multi-user device. Facial recognition, however, never made it into the iPad, but a newly published patent application gives us insight into this feature that didn't make it into the shipping product.

Windows 8 to have Picture Passwords?

Windows 8 to have Picture Passwords?For those that are really looking forward to Windows 8, you may have a very interesting feature for identification.
This possible feature is "picture passwords", which involves the user selecting an image of their choice and then drawing on it with selective gestures, like the dot, circle, and line that you see in the image to the upper left. Basically, the lines, circles, and taps help to unlock Windows just like a typewritten password or thumbprint scan.
Of course, there are doubts as to whether this is a good method for keeping data secure. After all, someone from another table at the coffee house could see you drawing on your picture and note the gestures for a future "data-heist".
According to my Source, these Picture Passwords are not going to be the only way that Microsoft is going to protect your data, but it is an additional layer of security for authentication. I'm guessing that the gestures on a picture can&#…

Volkswagen now deactivates BlackBerry email after each workday

You may want to consider moving to Germany and working for Volkswagen if you feel like you’re a slave to email even after you leave work each day. The carmaker said recently that it has begun to deactivate the email function on its employees’ BlackBerry smartphones a half an hour after each work day has finished. Email remains inactive until a half of an hour before the next work day starts. Other data, text and voice features remain active. 1,154 VW employees at six German plants are provided with a smartphone by the company, Reuters reported, and Volkswagen council member Heinz-Joachim Thust said the response from workers has been positive so far. Unfortunately for the company’s top management, the new policy does not cover board-level executives. ReadVolkswagen now deactivates BlackBerry email after each workday

LogMeIn is a tool that can be used to create a remote connection between one desktop computer and another, or between a desktop and a smartphone.

LogMeIn has released a free version of its iOS client, which, despite having a few limitations, still has the potential to be termed one of the best free remote desktop solutions for the platform. The working of the app is pretty similar to its desktop version. After you have downloaded it, sign up for a LogMeIn account, and then install the desktop client on your PC (link given at the end of this post). However, before you can get things started, the service requires account verification. You will have received a verification mail at the email address you used to register yourself with the service. Once your account is verified, you may log in to your ac…
