Users of Skype may have to go yet another day without their trusted client for calling across continents and seamless chat-messaging for a few hours today.
This is attributed to a failure in the overall Skype system that has disabled logging in and consequently inhibited communication between users all over the World.
An Official message from the official Skype twitter account said “A small number of you may have problems signing in to Skype. We’re investigating the cause, and hope to have more details to share soon.” at 1400 HRS EastAfrican Time today 7th June 2011.
More details coming.
Users of Skype today 26th May 2011 experienced an unfamiliar phenomenon when Skype crashed on their computers and all attempts to re-launch the application failed miserably allowing the user to login only to crash again and again.
Users have been ranting on twitter for the past 2 hours since the crashes became more rampant.
This comes amid recent news that Microsoft bought out the company for 8.5Million US dollars earlier this month.
Some say this is what is in store for Skype users henceforth but we can only wait and see the outcome.
Speculation drives to conclusion that someone is trying to scare the masses by failing an application that many have come to enjoy as free and bug-free in most instances.
Some even joked that the crash came as a sign that Skype is now officially a Microsoft product. (low blow)
Keep it juuchini for updates.
There has been a lot of discussion in the public domain about a new device called the Poken. It is a small device that is set to replace the need for business cards say in the next year or so by consolidating a user’s contacts in its small microchip and enabling on to transmit information on themselves in a fun and cool way.
1. Poken User meets other Poken User
2. User “’high four’s” his or her Poken with that of the other user. This is essentially holding them against each other (such that the coils inside the token are more or less aligned).
3. The two Pokens flash green to signal that a bond was made. If red light appears, please try again as this means that the devices have not yet connected.
4. On a computer at home or anywhere, the User plugs in his or her token into the USB port. Read more »
