Nokia’s Messaging Business Goes To UK’s Synchronica

The UK-based mobile messaging company Synchronica has inked a deal to take over Nokia’s operator-branded messaging business in a deal worth about $25 million—including a scant $4 million up front and warrants for some 18.3 million common shares in Synchronica.

Post Anonymously On Facebook

According to TechCrunch, there is a new Chrome plugin that allows you to post anonymously on Facebook. Sounds dangerous, doesn’t it? The script is called Defaceable and allows people to comment anonymously to other Defaceable users both on the Facebook website as well as websites that use Facebook comments.

Cool New iOS Apps For Free

The new Apple app, VoxOx is the perfect Voice Over Internet phone app that combines VoIP and traditional calling to let users have more options for calls and texts.

Although you’re still on your own when it comes to texting blunders, Google has created a feature called “Undo Send” that gives you a five second window to retract an e-mail you had just sent. You can enable or disable the feature under Gmail’s settings/labs within your Gmail account.

Obviously you should still be proofreading your emails before sending them out and making sure they are heading to the right person, but “undo send” is a great way of utilizing those “ah, shoot” moments right after you send something. I’m guessing Google employees have a number of those moments;

Facebook Releases New Messaging To Everyone

On Friday, Facebook announced that all users will soon be able to migrate to the new messaging platform.

Facebook was probably getting a ton of requests from people who want the upgrade – which unlike the profile upgrade, might make sense. However, the expectation was that the rollout would happen gradually, but now it seems that the roll out will happen much faster and very soon.

The benefit to the new messaging system is essentially that it acts as extended instant messaging system with SMS. There is also the ability to have history from all the messages, even chat messages.
