Firefox OS touchdown Manila-Philippines

I heard a news from my Mozilla Mentor Sir Bob Reyes that the Firefox OS  (Developer Preview) units arrived here in Manila. These smart-phones will be distributed to the lucky developers who presented their mobile app build on HTML5 during the recent Firefox OS App Days Event in Makati City.

Skype is now part of Microsoft

A software application that allows users to make voice and video calls and chat over the Internet is  now part of Microsoft.  On 10 May 2011, Microsoft Corporation agreed to acquire Skype Communications, S.à r.l for US$8.5 billion.[10] The company was incorporated as a division of Microsoft, and Microsoft acquired all of the company’s technologies, including Skype, with the purchase. This was completed on 13 October 2011

 

” Together we will bring innovative technology to friends, families and colleagues everywhere. And now the future possibilities for our customers are even more exciting. We will enable more people to connect in more ways that transform and enhance their lives. And this is just the beginning.”
