Those of you utilizing Skype in Windows 8 will be delighted to already know that Microsoft’s just bumped the app to variation 1.6. It’s been a couple of months because the last upgrade, and this revision brings even more attributes to the table, consisting of contact obstructing and a slew of performance tweaks. You’re now able to block individuals, with an option to remove or state the offending celebration. Speed and reliability have been improved, particularly when loading contacts, and a variety of bugs have been taken care of, consisting of one where the outward bound video was not always displayed after changing cameras. The upgrade’s available in Windows Store, so exactly what are you waiting for?

Watch \* NEW \* Forensic Proof Here!: www.youtube.com Extraterrestrial life (from the Latin words: additional [" beyond", or "not of"] and terrestris [" of or belonging to Earth"]) is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. It is typically also described as alien life, or merely aliens (or area aliens, to separate from various other meanings of alien or aliens). These hypothetical types of life range from easy bacteria-like organisms to beings far more complex than people. The development and testing of hypotheses on extraterrestrial life is understood as exobiology or astrobiology; the term astrobiology, nevertheless, includes the study of life on Earth saw in its astronomical context. Lots of experts consider extraterrestrial life to be plausible, however there is no definitive proof for its presence. Because the mid-20th century, there has been a continuous search for indicators of extraterrestrial life, from radios made use of to spot feasible extraterrestrial signals, to telescopes used to look for potentially habitable extrasolar worlds. It has actually additionally played a significant job in works of science fiction. Alien life, such as bacteria, has actually been hypothesized to exist in the Solar System and throughout the world. This hypothesis depends on the large size and constant physical laws of the observable universe. According to this argument, made by researchers such as Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking, it would be unlikely for life not to exist someplace besides Earth.   This argument …

Microsoft recently revealed that it would be retiring its longstanding Live Messenger platform. However, instead of receiving a commemorative wristwatch and rocking chair for its services, the once prominent IM client will be integrated into Skype during Q1 2013. Taking its first step to get the ball rolling, the company issued an update to Skype for Windows 8. The latest software push brings group searches, improved video performance, bug fixes and most notably Messenger contacts are now available to call. While these changes are subtle, it’s good to finally see Microsoft making moves after shelling out $ 8.5 billion for the privilege a little over a year ago. Hopefully, this will lead to more practical roads, like finally bringing Skype to the Xbox 360. But that would make too much sense, wouldn’t it?

Google’s now testing its Project Glass augmented reality glasses, but it sounds like this is only the first step in its AR plans. One of the engineers on Project Glass, Babak Parviz, is an associate professor at the University of Washington who specializes in bionanotechnology and helped to create a single pixel contact lens display, which was recently tested on live animals. Obviously, a lot more than a single pixel will be needed for this technology to be useful, Google appears to have the right people in place to take augmented realty from glasses to lenses. We’re years away from that being a reality, but it’s something to look forward to if you think the Project Glass hardware is just a bit too obtrusive to wear on a day-to-day…
Apple is working towards the summer release of OS X 10.8, aka Mountain Lion, and to that end it’s released a 2nd Developer Preview to, well, developers. The change log shows that there are still a lot of unfinished edges in the OS, from Game Center to AirPlay to the Notes app. However, one thing you wouldn’t know until you ran it is that there’s a new privacy feature. Dustin Curtis discovered that when an app attempts to access your contacts, OS X pops up a dialog box asking your permission. Once you grant it, there’s a new section in the Security preferences that lists all the apps you’ve granted permission to.
Obviously, the feature is a response to the privacy issues that were raised last month with iOS, which allows any app to access…
Path is still trying to pave over those privacy cracks, promising that its next update will “hash” the contact data it previously used to suck up without prior warning. Last month, the app was caught with its digital fingers inside users’ address books and while the subsequent (and understandably swift) update allowed users to opt out, the Path devs are still looking to gain privacy certification with TRUSTe. They told The Verge that the next version will still allow contact matching without plucking the precise details at the same time, using a hashing technique that won’t identify the data delivered to the social network app. The latest update adds compatibility with Nike+ GPS, plus improvements to the embedded camera and a new music recognition function. It’s available now for the mobile OS of your choice at the sources below.

Here’s an interesting little project that, while it’s unlikely to grow into a major product, nevertheless demonstrates the potential of alternative interfaces. Bruno Zamborlin’s Mogees (an abbreviation of “mosaicing gestural surface”) takes input from a contact microphone and analyzes it to determine the placement and direction of gestures on any surface through which vibrations can be detected.
I wrote a while back about how the “finger on a glass touchscreen” wasn’t the be-all and end-all of user interaction. The stylus, for example, has much life left in it. And interfaces we haven’t even thought of will emerge as well. Why not a puck that turns your table into a touchable surface?
It really has to be seen to be understood:
Naturally this demonstration doesn’t speak to the practicality of using it to, say, scroll down a webpage or control a cursor. But don’t you kind of get tired of resting your hand on your laptop, inching your fingers along a patch of plastic or glass to move the next paragraph into view, or some such action? I like the idea of taking gestures off of the device itself and moving them into its vicinity.
And objections to this particular system are ready enough: how would ambient vibrations and music affect it? What about typing? And so on.
But the point isn’t to take this device and apply it in your mind to something for which it wasn’t designed (the Mogees is a sound creation and control device). It’s to take the idea of taking what you have and doing something new with it. What if you could put your iPhone on the table and, if it rang, tap the table once to answer, tap twice for speakerphone, put your whole hand down to silence it, etc?
This particular item may be more suited to Theramin-style musical noodling, but it descends from a larger concept of disengaging the controls for a device from the device itself — of improvising the medium of interaction but retaining the content.
Scientists at Washington University are a step closer to bringing us all some sweet information displaying contact lenses. The team has been successfully testing prototype lenses on rabbits — though there are some major caveats here. First, due to limits of circuitry, they can only display a single light-emitting diode at a time. Also, the scientists have yet to figure out a workable energy source — at present, they need to be within centimeters of a wireless battery. The researchers have big plans, however, including the display of holographic images — and, no doubt, information about which targets to destroy.

Question by Jeff: How do you get an Android to suggest a list of contact links?
I have a new myTouch running Android, and I have several duplicate contacts. I noticed that on occasion it will suggest linking them, but is there a way to get the phone to give me the list again?
Answer by Jessica P
There is no way to get the phone to suggest these contact links again as far as I know but you can manually link each contact to others.
To do this, open one of those contacts and scroll down to the bottom. Tap the section labeled “Linked Contacts” and then tap the Add Link Contact button. On the next screen, find the contact you want to link, and it will be linked. Repeat these steps to link more contacts. You are limited to five linked contacts.

Is there an american better business i could complain to? Sh$ t!!
Answer by lucee
Oh boy, did you get ripped off! I hope you either stopped the credit card charges or bank draft, however, you are paying. You must do that first. Your credit card company can usually give you an 800 number, if they have one, or if you went through your bank, they have a form you have to fill out and they can possibly find a number. But stop the charges first.
You can file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau in your town or city. The site is here:
You can file a complaint online, find your local BBB office and a few other things. Good luck on this!
