One Charger for all Mobile Phones

GSM Association announced today, at Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona, to have one charger for all kind of mobile phones.

The GSMA is looking to have the majority of cell phones produced by the year 2012 equipped with ports compatible with the new charger interface. The GSMA looks to save considerable energy with a 50% reduction in standby energy consumption, as well as the potential elimination of over 50,000 tons of "duplicate chargers."

The idea is that a universal charger will make life much simpler for the consumer, who will be able to use the same charger for future handsets, as well as being able to charge their mobile phone anywhere from any available charger. These chargers will also include a 4-star or higher efficiency rating, which is up to three times more energy-efficient than an unrated charger. Furthermore, with potentially 50 per cent less chargers4 being manufactured each year, the industry can expect to reduce greenhouse gases in manufacturing and "transporting replacement chargers by 13.6 to 21.8 million tonnes a year".

The phone companies that agreed on this proposal are 3 Group, AT&T, KTF, LG, mobilkom austria, Motorola, Nokia, Orange, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telenor, Telstra, T-Mobile and Vodafone.

Yahoo gives IM to its Classic Mail

The millions of users of Yahoo Mail's "Classic" edition will get some of the features that made it into the Web portal's more advanced free e-mail service more than a year ago.

Yahoo has announced that it has begun rolling out integrated instant messaging (IM) and SMS text messaging features to Mail Classic users worldwide. The features had previously been available in the current (new) version of Yahoo Mail, which differs from Classic in that it offers a more dynamic, tab-based user interface.

But soon, users hanging onto "Classic Mail" version may get a nice surprise.

The features will take a few months to roll out to all of Mail Classic's users, which Yahoo described as numbering in the millions -- indicating that it still has a chunk of Yahoo's user base, even though the portal has been pushing its more advanced Mail version for more than a year. There are over 280 million users of market leader Yahoo's e-mail services worldwide, according to comScore.

Access Gmail Offline

This is a new feature rolled out by Google in Gmail Labs that allow Gmail users to access their mail even when internet connection is down. Once you turn on this feature Gmail uses Gears to download a local cache on your machine. As long as you're connected to the inernet, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When the connection is lost, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network.

You can read messages, star and label them, and do all of the things you're used to doing while reading your webmail online. Any messages you send while offline will be placed in your outbox and automatically sent the next time Gmail detects a connection.

This is still in beta phase so dont be surprised if you dont find it in your Gmail Labs. To check this feature first you will have to install Gears. Then go to Settings->Labs->Offline and enable it. All set!!!!!

IBM to buy Chinese e-mail company

Computing giant IBM has announced its intention to acquire a Chinese e-mail and messaging company.

Hong Kong-based firm Outblaze sells hosted multilingual e-mail and messaging services for other service providers, telecommunications companies, and corporations to operate under their own brands.

Outblaze will become part of IBM Lotus' Bluehouse project, IBM's online-business and social-networking and collaboration service, IBM announced on Thursday. Bluehouse is currently in open beta testing.
