well.. this is BitDefender’s new motto.. Like it?
maximum protection and usability


Today.. BitDefender 2010 version was officially launched simultaneously in 6 corners of the world 🙂

This version comes with a lot of changes and improvements in usability, design, a new e-commerce provider, on others.. For more details.. you can check out the press release.

Personally.. I really like the new interface.. It’s blueish.. and they finally got rid of all that gray 🙂 And about all its improvements.. only time will tell just how good they are.. And of course.. independent tests 😛

But I don’t doubt it.. 2009 products were very good.. 2010 will be just as good.. and with a twist.. of lemon 😉

Let me kno how you feel about it..

My boyfriend is a BlackBerry fan.. he changed 3 models.. and now he’s using BlackBerry Bold.
For some time.. I wanted to have a BB.. just for the wifi.. and internal IM.. But I think they look too heavy.. and bold.. and mannish.. And I’m still a Nokia fan.
Yet.. this new BlackBerry Thunder looks great. And I bet it feels great too. Can’t wait for my bf to turn to this one 😉
Here are some details I found about the new BB:
* Tactile Response – when you press on the Thunder’s screen, it pushes in “just” a little bit (the whole screen is sort of like a big button) and you get immediate “real” feedback – you hear an audible clickety sound, and can feel a buzz in your finger where you actually pressed on the display.
* Full QWERTY and SureType entry – hold the phone in landscape mode and you can take advantage of a full-qwerty keypad. Use the phone in portrait mode and you can enter data on a SureType keyboard. You will be able to choose/change your screen/keyboard orientation at anytime.
* Screen is made of glass and will feature multi-touch – the Thunder is said to be utilizing WebKit for it’s browser engine (same as the iPhone), so hopefully that means a solid web browsing experience for the Thunder.
Maybe it will even beat the iPhone!! who knows..


New communication tool.. from Google July 9, 2009

I’m a Google fan.. I have a Gmail adress, I use Gtalk, Google translate..  and now I’m thinkig of switching to Google Voice.

Google Voice is the new GrandCentral, relaunched this march. You get one Google phone number to use for all you phones: cell, home or office using Voice over internet protocol to link them together. This new version even has voice mail and voice mail transcripts, sms managing, call screening and call conferencing. It sounds better than a cell phone 😉

For more info and a presentation video see Google Voice.


A new way to communicate.. June 28, 2009

Some time ago..  I found something amazing on the web: Google WAVE. I was.. wow. Stunned.

Stupid, but at first I just thought it was the new and improved Yahoo Messenger (haha).

Made public for the first time on 27th May 2009 during the Google I/O.. and it has already caught the public’s eye.

Well.. after watching the presentation video..  I came to my senses 😉  It’s not just another YM.. it’s a whole communication platform. You have it all.. messenger.. e-mail.. file sharing just by drag&drop intro the window.. Why is it different from other applications? If you and your friend are talking.. you can invite other to join your conversation. And the third friend (for example) will not be wondering what you’ve been talking about, because he has acces to the conversation history (yupiiii) Also, if your friend is offline, you can send him an e-mail. And he can reply.. but not to the whole e-mail, but to a specific part.

And what I find most appealing.. You can see what your friend is typing! Instead of the standard message – “X is typing a message” you can see the actual words :p Thus.. you must think twice before writing anything..

I’m eagerly waiting for the official lauch.. If you want to take a look.. check this out:
