First Facebook SIM card launched

We can hardly go on a day without logging on to Facebook or even speaking the word, ‘Facebook,’ in our day to day conversation, that proves how powerful Facebook has become to our lives. To add even more power and uh, addiction, Gemalto, a Dutch digital security company has announced the creation of Facebook SIM card at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Do you still hang out with your old traditional non-Android, non-Apple and non-blackberry phone but somehow got fascinated towards social networking giant Facebook and want to carry your Facebook world wherever you go ? Then the SIM card developed by Gemalto night be helpful for you.Though, the SIM-based client isn’t as pretty as its smartphone contemporaries – don’t expect picture streams or sliding interfaces – but it was developed with the help of Facebook, and provides text-menu-based interaction with Facebook – including status updates, pokes and friend requests.The SIM card will enable even the most bare-boned handset to have Facebook functionality, albeit text based for the leaner devices known as feature phones. This will help the social network approach its goal of becoming the standard social service for all mobile phones.

Play Videos and Music in Google Chrome

A few days back I was surfing in Google Chrome(one of my favourite browsers these days). And it accidentally happened that instead of dragging a video file I dragged it into Google Chrome and Voila! It started playing and the only thing I could say was Eureka! Eureka! (sorry for the PJ)..
So lets get back into discussion. To play a video file open a new tab in Google drag it into the new tab and it will start playing. The best part is that you can still forward and rewind,play and pause just like a media player and guess what?? You can play mp3 files also.
I would recommend everybody of you to try it.It's fun ! Happy Browsing :)

Motorola Atrix launched with Android

We were expecting something dual core-ish from Motorola at CES after the leaks of the Olympus, and boy, did we get something to get excited about.
Motorola has thrown away the form book with the new Atrix, with a range of stunning specs to appease even the most hardcore user.

We’re talking a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor with two 1GHz chips running in tandem to offer a judder-free existence and lower battery consumption, as well as 1GB of RAM to keep slowdown to a minimum.
The screen is very much next generation as well, with its qHD pixel count stuffed into a 4-inch display nabbing the title of the world’s highest-res screen from the iPhone 4.
And even though the dual core processor is supposed to help with the battery life, there’s still an industry-leading 1980mAh battery squashed in the back as well, with 16GB of storage ably backed up by a microSD for up to 32GB of extra space.
Hands on: Motorola Atrix review: Design
So with all that in mind, it’s actually very surprising to find that the Motorola Atrix doesn’t look like the ugliest phone in the world – it’s no great shakes in the style stakes, but it’s averagely attractive and won’t be the most horrendous fashion statement.
The overall design is very square and black – the front is dominated by the display, with the four front touch-sensitive buttons the only difference in furniture, as well as the VGA front-facing camera for video calling.
The back is reminiscent of mottled carbon fibre, with an attractive sheen and a decent grip level – nothing spectacular, but acceptable.

Given the large screen size, it’s good to note that the phone sits well in the hand, and the screen is mostly all in reach of a finger or thumb – some jiggling will be needed to pull down the top notification bar, but overall it’s not too bad and will suit most pockets and bags.
The thickness of 10.9mm is a massive surprise when you think about the innards – that battery pack puts the likes of the HTC Desire to shame, and will hopefully become the norm in more devices as we get used to ever-more power-hungry phones in the  future.
