Skype Doubles Down with 10-Person Video Chat


Skype announced today that the latest beta version of Skype 5.0 would up the ante in terms of group video chat, as well as introduce a more stable and sleeker experience for its Windows users.

When the company first introduced group chat in May, it limited the number of participants to five, but now it has doubled that number to 10.

This limitation was one of the primary things we focused on when we looked at the new feature, which we immediately compared to free, Web-based services like Tiny Chat. Continuar leyendo «Skype Doubles Down with 10-Person Video Chat»

Forrester: Consumers Will Not Only Buy, They’ll Help Create

If the general trend toward crowdsourcing is any clue, then we are all well aware of the value of the Internet masses. Having access to a loyal fan base can be like a fount of free ideas and labor. From translating Wikipedia and Facebook to beta testing Google Chrome, crowdsourcing is used all across the Web for a number of purposes and analyst firm Forrester is suggesting one more – co-creation.

According to a report released this week, U.S. consumers a willing «co-creators», a fact that many companies have yet to take advantage of. [Más…]

The report surveyed consumer product strategy professionals and consumers and found that «nearly half of all companies are not using social media to interact directly with their customers in order to influence product creation, design or strategy.» Beyond that, the report found that a majority of consumers were more than willing to lend a helping hand in creating the products they would eventually purchase.

Make your old add-ons work with Firefox 4

Option #1. Mozilla earlier created the Compatibility Reporter add-on for its users to test and report the compatibility of add-ons with various Firefox releases.

The interesting part about this add-on is that it will automatically configure your Firefox to install and use add-ons that are otherwise incompatible with your release of Firefox.

Option #2. If you don’t like installing one more extension to your Firefox build just for enabling older add-ons, here’s a workaround.

Type about:config in your browser address bar and agree to the warning message. Now right click inside the browser, choose New –> Boolean, type the preference name as extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b and set it to False.

That’s it. Your old add-ons will work with Firefox 4 and you will also be able to download and install any of the other incompatible add-ons from the Internet. If you interested in the technical details, check this mozillaZine entry.

Option #3. This is the geekiest option of them all but one that doesn’t require you to change anything inside Firefox.

You can download the extension (the .xpi file) to your computer, unzip it and change the value of em:maxVersion under install.rdf file to 4.0.* – now pack the extension again and drag-n-drop to your Firefox browser. Please refer to mozillaZine for detailed step-by-step instructions.

Firefox 4 sports a clean and polished look, the add-ons section has been completely revamped, the menu bars are hidden so you have more screen estate for reading web pages plus you now have the option to permanently “pin” frequently used web apps.
