This is the first release for a few months, so the lack of new features is largely underwhelming, but it was released after the first few users received the new G560 LightSync speakers so they will have been waiting for these drivers with great anticipation.
Skype is a freemium voice-over-IP service and instant messaging client, currently developed by the Microsoft Skype Division. The service allows users to communicate with peers by voice using a microphone, video by using a webcam, and instant messaging over the Internet. Phone calls may be placed to recipients on the traditional telephone networks. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free of charge, while calls to landline telephones and mobile phones are charged via a debit-based user account system.
Fixed bugs since 6.14
- blocked contacts appearing in Skype Home,
- no input fields (blue window) in login Window,
- crash when chat name contains "&#" characters.
Looks like the folks that still hate Windows 8 will have one less reason in August, as Microsoft have announced that both a more classic start menu and the ability to run "modern" applications within a Window as shown below.
I am always pleased to see such great momentum with operating system developments, but I must admit I was starting to get used to the new full screen menu but I am sure I can adjust back just as quickly if it is done correctly.
I do find the live tiles fairly useful in some applications but must admit for services like Twitter and Facebook I continue to use the web versions just as well, although I appreciate that on Tablets the apps are always far more accessible.
Dropbox is an online storage provider and with all the options out there is still one of the best. I use this application to easily sync files between my work and home PC but as a super easy way of getting files to other people. I also find the Android application very useful to get non-Play Store applications quickly across my various devices.
Both Microsoft and Google are making a huge push to get people using their various offerings, but this one I just keep coming back to. What is new since 2.6.28? Not alot but change is good!
- Fix issue with linking second account for a small number of users on Windows
- Fixes an issue where the second account would get unlinked if email associated with account changes
- Changes to camera uploads splash
Facebook have started paying out to hackers that find loopholes or exploits in, er, Facebook.
One security researcher has been rewarded with more than $7,000 for finding six serious bugs in the social networking site.
The minimum amount paid for a bug is $500, said Mr Sullivan, up to a maximum of $5000 for the most serious loopholes. The maximum bounty has already been paid once, he said.
Many cyber criminals and vandals have targeted Facebook in many different ways to extract useful information from people, promote spam or fake goods.
More and more companies are offering cash incentives to third parties (ie the public) for finding exploits in their products. I guess it certainly beats waiting around for other people to do it for "the lulz" to huge embarrisment later on.
