"In a presentation to the Georgia Institute of Technology's IEEE Student Branch yesterday, Microsoft employee and Georgia Tech (edit: graduate former student - Jenks went to work for MS before graduating) Andrew Jenks had some surprises in store. "It wasn't originally planned to be announced yesterday, but when he found out he was coming down (since this is his alma mater) he wanted to announce it", so instead of his planned talk on "Life and development at Microsoft", he spent the hour announcing a new Messenger API.
...
Internal builds are already at WLM 9 and includes many of the API components. They have a team working on multi-person audio/video chat for WLM that may or may not be in 9, but should be in by 10. They are also trying to work out a way for WLM users to chat with AIM/GTalk/ICQ users like the way Yahoo! works now, and they have an internal version that works with GTalk already (but very basic)..."

I'm writing this post to help David Airey to take his domain name back from a hacker. This hacker stealed his Gmail account by inserting a filter in Gmail's setting and then he stealed his domain name. I advice you read the whole story and check your Gmail settings after that.

"What would you do if a criminal stole something very personal, and very valuable from you?

What if they were able to target your business and criple your income?

You wouldn’t be too happy now, would you?

What if you also discovered that this was happening because of a Google security infection that can affect every GMail user on the planet?

That’s what has just happened to me, and here I’m going to tell you my story. I will detail everything I know about the web pirates who are threatening my livelihood, and tell you what you need to know in order to avoid the same thing happening to you..."

Rise of Emoticons

December 25, 2007

"Everyone who has ever been online is familiar with emoticons. You know, those chubby little smiley faces and other cartoon-like characters that are usually found in e-mails, blog posts, instant messages and other online communication.

The smiley is easily the best known emoticon — think of him as the king of the emoticons. But the smiley is by no means on his own these days; there are now hundreds, or perhaps thousands of animated 3-D emoticons capable of expressing a staggering number of different feelings, activities, moods and states of mind..."

Google Talk and Google Reader Integration"One of my favorite uses for Reader is to share interesting stuff with my friends. I click "Share" whenever I find an interesting item, be it hilarious or serious. This way, all my friends can subscribe to my shared items (and I to theirs), and we can easily see if a friend has found something interesting. This can be inconvenient, as I have to distribute my shared items link to my friends and vice-versa.

So, we've linked up Reader with Google Talk (also known as chat in Gmail) to make your shared items visible to your friends from Google Talk. Once you've logged into Reader and been notified of the change, these friends will be able to see your shared items in the Reader left-hand navigation area under "Friends' shared items.."

Sex Chat Spam on Skype

December 13, 2007

"Maybe this is commonplace for others, but I've just got my first sex-chat-spam on Skype. It's from someone called Veronica Sexy, whose profile indicates that it's unlikely to be someone I've met and just forgotten about (as if I would):

"can't wait to get real nasty and show off :) IM REAL MISS WEB CAM!"

Reply to the message and immediately you're asked to share your contact details (a la Skype.) I didn't risk having Veronica spam all my friends (not sure how that would work, but I've got some nice people on my list, and I'd hate for them to be upset.) But I did reply to her message, and her responses were quick, and, dare I say it, felt a trifle automated:"

Mumble - Voice Chat Application for GamersMumble is a voice chat application for groups. While it can be used for any kind of activity, it is primarily intended for gaming. Mumble works with all games as a regular voice chat application.

Mumble has very low latency combined with good sound quality; it uses Speex extensively, not just the voice compression technology, but also the voice preprocessing to remove noise and improve clarity.

Mumble also has positional audio for supported games, meaning the other players' voice will come from the direction their character is in game.

Gmail Chat Added AIM Support

December 05, 2007

Gmail chat users now have the option to sign in to their AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) account to chat with their AIM buddies from Gmail.

AIM buddies will populate you contacts list, and are searchable just like your Google Talk contacts.

To start chatting with your AIM buddies just click on a name in your chat list, and start typing.

Note that an AIM account is required to use this feature. AIM in Gmail is not a Google Talk and AIM federation; it's the ability to sign in to your AIM messaging account from Gmail. Gmail uses Open AIM to provide this feature.
