12/06/2011, The official Facebook app for Android has its fair share of bugs and unfortunately this has caused the user experience to be less than stellar, thus forcing Android owners to turn to alternative Facebook apps for their social networking needs. The good news is that thanks to these leaked screenshots above, it appears that Facebook is working at an update called “Katana”.

12/01/2011, If the current 5,000 character limit on Facebook status updates isn’t sufficient for your updating needs you’re in luck. Facebook has announced today that the maximum character count in status updates has been increased to over 60,000 characters. What people need so many characters for is beyond my comprehension, but it looks like you’ll now be able to tell stories with each update you post. If you try to post […]

11/29/2011, They say that a man’s home is his castle, and sometimes, we do want to do our bit and show off what our homes look like from the inside to the rest of the world. For bragging rights, I suppose, considering the amount of money that you have already invested for its interior decoration. Well, Panasonic has a spanking new Facebook app that you might just be interested in, calling […]
11/22/2011, Are you a huge fan of the Mission: Impossible series, whether it is on TV or on the silver screen? For those who are extremely partial to the latter, then I would suggest you make a beeline over to the movie’s Facebook page considering how the social network will now allow you to watch all Mission: Impossible movies to date there.

11/18/2011, Facebook is currently the 800 lbs gorilla when it comes to social networking, so if you are going to leverage on a ready base of users who love communicating with one another, why not use it to carry your software – Skype for example? That’s what Microsoft did, where Skype 5.4 Beta for Mac and Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows will allow you to hold a Facebook-to-Facebook call from within […]
11/18/2011, Hmmm, we all know that there are plenty of casual games over at Facebook, and while some of these are free to play, others take on a “freemium” role – where purchasing in-game items will require transactions of real world cash. Why not use PayPal then, as a platform to get that money transferred? I guess this is also part of the reason why PayPal has just launched a peer-to-peer […]
11/17/2011, Although none of the social-phones optimized for social network usage has been a huge commercial success (yet), companies are pressing on and are trying different form-factor.

A closer look at the specifications reveal that this is not a phone for power users: it has […]
11/17/2011, Skype 5.7 beta for Windows (184.108.40.206, download link) has received an update which features a few new /better functionalities: Group screen sharing: First, groups can now use screen sharing. This was previously only working with a one to one video chat. Business users will really like that one. Facebook calls: Skype can now call Facebook users directly.

11/10/2011, Just yesterday Digitimes reported that according to their sources, Apple was reportedly cutting down on the production of the iPhone 4S due to sales not being what they had originally imagined it to be. This is a bit hard to believe considering that the iPhone 4S had shattered the sales record of the iPhone 4 by nearly double, although to be honest we’re guessing that there were plenty of users […]
11/06/2011, In a recent appearance before a Senate subcommittee that investigates whether or not Google is abusing its dominant position on the web, Eric Schmidt has declared that he sees Apple’s voice-assistant named Siri as a “significant development” that could threaten Google. “Google has many strong competitors and we sometimes fail to anticipate the competitive threat posed by new methods of accessing information.” he says. Schmidt adds that his previous statements […]
