iPhone for Verizon in 2010? Can You Hear Me Now!

by Sachin Balagopalan on April 27, 2009 · 4 comments

According to this USA today article Verizon and Apple have entered into high level talks that could pave the way for the iPhone to jump onto Verizon’s network. A few things come into mind if this rumour is indeed true, after all it’s USA today reporting the story :) . First of all Apple’s exclusive contract with AT&T is coming to an end next year so it does actually make sense to perhaps revisit the issue of networks. After all since the day it was announced that AT&T was going to be the exclusive carrier for the iPhone people were wondering when it’ll be available on Verizon.

Swine Flu Infects Twitter …

by Sachin Balagopalan on April 26, 2009 · Comments

After confirming 20 cases of Swine Flu specifically in New York , Kansas, Ohio, California and Texas the U.S. declared a public health emergency today. Federal officials are urging Americans not to panic but fears of contracting the flu is spreading all over Twitter. If you were on Twitter this weekend searching for Swine Flu you know what I’m talking about. Swine Flu is the top trending topic on Twitter as I write this, and people continue to tweet about the latest news on the disease. In fact judging by the chatter on Twitter, one could easily come to the conclusion that the Mexican Swine Flu is going to be worse than the influenza pandemic of 1918 if you simply look at the trending numbers.

Linux - Get Your Freedom!

by Sachin Balagopalan on April 9, 2009 · 2 comments

The Mac vs PC viral video wars have been going on for sometime now and quite frankly it’s getting to be a little tedious IMO. Microsoft is trying it’s best to “re-image” itself as a cool and hip company with their recent wave of commercials including the latest “Hey Lauren” commercial “I guess I’m just not cool enough for a Mac” ad. Apparently Linux has also jumped into the mosh pit now with a slight twist to the “I’m a PC and I’m a Mac” message. The emphasis is on “We” as in “We are Linux”. The obvious point being of-course the fact that Linux is developed and maintained by the open source community.

Skype on iPhone Confirmed …

by Sachin Balagopalan on March 30, 2009 · 1 comment

The WSJ and a bunch of other sources including GigaOM - who actually broke it first last week - are reporting that the long awaited iPhone version of Skype will finally be released tomorrow.

So what does this mean for the average iPhone user? Using Wi-Fi and VOiP you can make calls to other Skype users for free. It’ll cost you around 2 cents a minute to call landlines so if you’re in an AT&T non-coverage area but are in a Wi-Fi zone the 2 cents a minute is not a bad deal! One thing you won’t be able to do is Skype over the 3G network. I don’t think people are going to be complaining about that :) .
