fring is a VoIP application that lets you use Skype, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo!, and AIM clients to chat and instant message. Well, the good news is that fring is available now for free in the Apple App Store and can be loaded on your iPhone without any jailbreaking required.

fring will run on your iPhone or iPod Touch and works over the WiFi network. You can even make SkypeOut calls with fring so if you are traveling fring may be the application you want to make low cost and free calls on the road.

SGN’s Wii-like Golf And Bowling Games

No surprise that SGN’s iPhone games are doing so well – they’re fun to play and they’re free. iGolf is at no. 7 on the top ten apps list and has, the company says, more than 1 million downloads. The newly launched iBowl is at no. 8.

Fring brings Skype and other VoIP services to iPhone
Beyond the Skype functionality (which I imagine would be its most
popular use), Fring also lets you chat (and call, where appropriate)
friends over MSN, GoogleTalk, AIM, Yahoo, Twitter, ICQ, and of course,
Fring’s own service.

1920s navigation map watch!

A little article about 1920’s gadget, and you can see how far our technology has been pushed forward. All the items mentioned in the article might seem surreal and laughable to us today, but they do have some sort of contributions to our world, at least in 1920s.

I mentioned this article in last week’s meeting, very interesting view on the mobile content market.
Great reference for the future too. What it has highlighted is that in 2009, UGC will be the main thing in mobile devices, giving the fact that, it is already emerging on the iphone and black berry.

Thoughts anyone?
