Swap Tweet time for a JAJAH call

17 09 2009

If you consider yourself to be an early adopter then you might be interested in the Beta Twitter-JAJAH application which allows you to make free two minutes calls (the verbal equivalent of a tweet) to other Twitter users without giving your telephone number away.

You only need to tweet “@call @twittername” and where “twittername” is, type the Twitter name of the person you wish to call. Your phone will then ring and the call is connected. Of course, the other person must be a member of JAJAH for it to work!

BETA invitations have already been sent to selected Twitter accounts. If you’re fortunate to have received one, it will show up under “My Services” / “My Account” / “Twitter Calls.” And if not then you can email them to request an invitation twitter@jajah.com

One click instant chat room

18 02 2009

There’s nothing I like better than a girlie chat, but get me talking on the phone, the minutes turn to hours, leaving me with an astronomical bill to look forward to.

Of course, I could always use Skype online but whilst mum, sister, niece and best-girlfriend don’t have an account or the equipment, its pointless! Thankfully, some of my girlfriends like to use instant messaging but then this brings with it a new problem; keeping up with who is using what service!



So, I’ve come up with a plan to introduce them all to TinyChat, where after all, you only need an email address and the ability to type, for an instant online 1-to-1 or group chat.

Via the TinyChat no-frills website, you click ‘Create Your Chatroom’ button and email your contacts the generated link which appears on the screen. To enter the Chatroom, your contacts need only click the received link and then create a nickname to join in the conversation.

Every TinyChat Chatroom is disposable, unless you save the log, otherwise upon exiting all content is non-recoverable. Needless to say, as with any Chatroom, don’t share your private information unless you can account for all the participants present.

Free technology offers greener printing

If you’re not already using the GreenPrint Software on your PC or Mac then you’ll need little persuading to download this free software that saves money and trees!

On those ocasions, when you need a website print-out, GreenPrint reduces wastefulness by analysing content pages and eliminating banner ads, disclaimers and footnotes before printing.

GreenPrint - saving the trees

Still not convinced? Then its good to know that GreenPrint made it onto PC Magazine’s list of Best Free Software of 2009 and claims that if all US households with a computer used GreenPrint over $6 billion a year would be saved.

Puma hits 60 in style

2 02 2009

Refusing to fade into the background, Puma has reached the grand old age of 60 and to mark the occasion launched a clothing collection to take you back in time. For those nostalgics amongst us, you can find 50s rock ‘n roll leather jackets, 70s button up polo shirts, right the way through to more modern day 90s hooded sweatshirts.

And to further coincide with the celebrations, Puma has created the ‘Puma Past Masher.’ This is a kind of fashion time machine where you can upload your photo and create a look based on any of the Puma decades. Its definitely worth a play with, when you get some time. As you can see from my mashed up photo, I always wanted to be a rock chick!
