I’m surprised that the service providers keep using this marketing ploy to lure customers and to some sort of speed competition.

No doubt: Video Chat standards are finally being discussed

Back in June of last year, I was discussing the point that video chat protocols were a mess and that there needs to be a standard. Anyone with video chat should be able to go from [say] Skype to a Google+ hangout, or use WebEx. And to reiterate: ‘…The way I see it, there’s nothing …

Using voice recognition on your mobile device uses more data? YES.

One of the more interesting stories that been reading about is how developers/hackers have been working with the iPhone 4S; mainly working on porting Siri to other Apple devices— the iPad and previous versions of the iPhone.
