Facebook Is About To Launch A Music Service Called Vibes

The rumor has been around for a while that Facebook is preparing to offer a musical service to their 750 million members. According to their proclamations, Facebook isn’t looking at becoming a content provider but will provide a social layer to the infrastructure to allow another player use their interface.

It would be hard to imagine Facebook taking on the sector by themselves after Mark Zuckerberg’s recent declarations.

Apple To Debut ‘HD+’ 1080p iTunes Movie Services Later This Year?

AppleInsider reports that Apple may be preparing to begin supporting 1080p movies in its iTunes Store later this year, based on reports of film studios submitting films to Apple in a new “HD+” format at the higher resolution.

Apple has resisted 1080p for its iTunes videos and even the current version of Apple TV because the company claims it will slow down streaming speeds, which could degrade your viewing experience more than the extra resolution could improve it.

Samsung Epic 4G Getting Gingerbread Update Later This Month?

This isn’t officially confirmed, but the rumor on the street is that Sprint and Samsung are getting ready to finally bring the Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the Epic 4G.

Yep that means that the only device in the Galaxy S family with physical QWERTY keyboard will soon get a number of new features and performance enhancements.

Is An iPod Touch 3G On The Way ?

The iPod Touch could soon ship with a 3G antenna, bringing the consistently popular MP3 and media player one step closer to the more full-featured iPhone.

That’s the rumor this week from a Dutch tech site called Apple Spot, which claims that consumers would purchase SIM cards from their providers, and snap those SIM cards right into the back of the iPod Touch. And look there! You’ve got 3G.

PDFs Pose Threat In iOS Devices

It recently came to light that a security hole in iOS means users could potentially find their iDevices infected with malware if they open dodgy attachments.

Users are particularly vulnerable when they view Portable Document Format, or PDF, files, which give attackers an opportunity to infect the devices with malicious software, giving them administrative rights to the device.

ISPs To Punish Illegal Downloaders

Are you one of those people who would rather risk stiff fines and possible jail time than spending money on any digital content? If you have Comcast, AT&T, or Verizon here is your warning that they plan to start cracking down even more if you are caught sharing illegal files.

These ISPs have been working on an agreement with media companies more closely with piracy. Rather than just receiving a warning in the mail you could receive throttled bandwidth or limited access to the Internet.

Facebook To Fail Google Plus With Skype Video Chat

Facebook’s video chat feature has finally been launched, revealing what many technology blogs had already predicted: video chat is now available on the service and is powered by the hugely popular Skype.

The bond between Skype and Facebook has grown stronger since Microsoft acquired Skype a month ago — not to mention that Microsoft has a small stake in Facebook.

Coming Soon : PCs That Argue Back

The computer crashes and we respond angrily at the flickering screen. But we may soon risk being shouted at by the machine we have just cursed.

Scientists are building a voice-activated device that can interact with people in a “natural and intelligent way”. Artificial intelligence will help it become familiar with a user’s voice, with the ultimate goal of understanding a human and speaking and behaving like them.

Samsung Galaxy S II On Windows Platform ?

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is easily one of the best Android smartphones out there right now. So you can imagine our excitement when we heard that Samsung might be working on a Windows Phone 7-version of the super-slim beast.

The Bluetooth SIG board, which tests new phones using the wireless specification before release, has seen the Samsung SGH-i937 pass through its labs, similar to the Samsung SGH-i927 (The Galaxy S2) and the Samsung SGH-i937 (also known as the Windows Phone 7-powered Focus).

Mark Zuckerberg Most Followed User On Google Plus

In an odd twist, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, is the most followed user on Google’s new social network Google Plus.

Zuckerberg has gained as of this post 21,213 followers, more than both Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Co-Founders of Google and Vic Gundotra the Senior Vice-President of Social for Google.While this may seem a little odd for a service coming from Google, this is likely mostly to do with several tech blogs reporting of Zuckerberg’s presence on the service.
