Skype application for iPhone is official! As it was rumored earlier in the week, its now official and available for download absolutely free on iTunes, App Store now. As with the desktop IM software, Skype to Skype calls will be free and you’d also be able to chat with your contacts and friends using this app. As you would expect it does require access to a WiFi network though. The audio quality is good even through using WiFi which has been a problem with some non-Skype apps providing Skype support. The iPhone version of Skype supports VoIP service, chatting, incoming conference calls but its a shame you won’t be able to initate outgoing conference calls.

Is this the real deal? We have absolutely no idea whether this is just another photoshop mock up calling it the MacBook Mini. Mind you, April Fools is coming up! These are spyshots of what is allegedly the Apple netbook which we have all been waiting for, they were leaked and printed in a Russian magazine. What’s more is that the specs revealed showed no signs of on board 3G wireless connectivity, that’s odd for a netbook these days. Inside the supposed MacBook mini, there’s a 10.4″ screen with a 1,280×768 screen that handle HD videos. There’s also an Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM, WiFi, running Geforce 9400M, bluetooth, a 64GB solid state drive for storage, a USB port and a Mini DisplayPort.

When it comes to being eco-friendly and running on just electric power, Tesla has become reknown for doing the job right with its beautiful Roadster. However, the Roadster had quite a few downsides and just wasn’t practical enough. Though it was much faster than its old brother – the Lotus Elise and quieter than many petrol cars, each costed over 90k (in sterling pounds!).

ZumoDrive is a free app just recently released on the App Store which works in tandem with a downloadable desktop client (Mac OS X or Windows) to let you easily move and use files between your desktop, your laptop, and your iPhone. Unlike other apps on the App Store such as Air Sharing (which isn’t free), ZumoDrive does require you to install a lightweight free software on to your computer and requires that both your computer and your iPhone have access to the internet either via 3G, WiFi or EDGE in order for you to upload files (photos and music as well) onto the ZumoDrive server. But this isn’t too difficult, the free iPhone client supports both Windows and Mac OS X, you just need to choose the appropriate one. I suppose the major difficulty here is you’re also having to rely on ZumoDrive’s cloud for storage instead of storing files locally, but there are always good and bad views on this.

In terms of the user interface, once connected, your ZumoDrive will show up like another hard drive where you can easily drag files that show up almost immediately on other devices. What makes ZumoDrive unique is that it automatically understands not to store larger files on your iPhone, but gives you access to those files from the cloud. However, it’s important to note that the free version only allows you 1GB of space to work with, which was quite surprising to me as I would expect at least 5GB with so many large files that we need to deal with nowadays. Nevertheless the money will need to come from somewhere I suppose! Upgrading the plan on ZumoDrive to 10GB will cost $2.99 per month and so on. For most users who deal with just simple word or PDF documents, 1GB should be enough.

Priced at $3,649, some users may think that Panasonic have overdone their sarcasm on this one but as you can see the latest Toughbook 30 is one serious looking laptop. You see what I always think is that not many jobs really warrant someone to need to buy a Toughbook, I mean you wouldn’t have one of these if you just worked in an office all day even though its pretty cool. The main difference from the Toughbook 30 from previous Toughbooks is that this one sports Intel’s Centrino 2 with vPro, expanded memory capabilities, 40 percent longer battery life, larger capacity hard drives and optional SSDs. Full breakdown of specs and gallery after the break…
