Well, Intel decides to invest in Jajah and also provide its patents on VOID for use at Jajah. Smells fishy? How would Intel and Verizon have patent on same concept? if they have, different patents, because their concept is different, then how would the products interoperate? One thing stupid about Jajah is that you need to be connected to the net to make a call .. which means you should be on the PC, or should have a phone capable of running Jajah client.. (The call actually goes thru the Phone and not PC, but it needs to be initiated from the web... that is pain. It would be good if they would add a call in number..

Joost Anyone?

If you have not heard about Joost, take a moment to check, It is a web based Video Player based on P2P technology by the founders of Skype... and Napster..... and it is Legal.

If you need a Joost invite, all you need to do is just ping me - provided you know me...

Tibco and Web 2.0

While other companies are heavily investing in SOA, Tibco is silently reinventing itself as a Web 2.0 company. It has heavily invested in Ajax technologies, while its mainstream products are still doing good in the market. What does it plan to do next?

Whatever Happened To SeeBeyond?

When Sun acquired SeeBeyond, it was widely speculated that it would be open sourced or atleast it will be made freely available. But all of a sudden, that seems to have died completely. Sun does have Seebeyond based Java CAPS on its site for marketting, but there are no downloads. Has it changed plans?

Microsoft Snooping on PCs without users knowing about it

Normally I implement most Microsoft Office patches without getting into fine prints, but the latest one spooked me completely. Here is a screenshot.

Want to read it verbatim? It says:

Size: 1.0 MB
Microsoft has released an update for Microsoft Application Error Reporting. This update fixes an issue with Microsoft Application Error Reporting that may cause some information about application errors to be sent to Microsoft without notifying you.
More information for this update can be found at

That means Microsoft had been getting data from My MS Office about crashes without me knowing about it.
