News Feeds
Last week I was not very productive, just wrote 10 articles in total. A few projects and coursework assignments in hand, they have taken quite a lot of my time last week. Just a blink of eyes, it’s already the second week of August and somehow I feel like didn’t do anything really meaningful in the past two weeks. Anyway, I’ve created a new one stop news infohub which allows you to read all kinds of latest news from varies sources. So, on top of the news or information I posted, you are now able to read more news without going to different websites. :)

Yahoo Messenger 7 Launched

Friday 12 August 2005 @ 3:31 pm

Yahoo has just launched its latest version of Instant Messenger (IM), Yahoo Messenger 7.
New features that it has including Voice over IP (VoIP), which enables you to make PC-to-PC calls around the world. What you need is only a microphone and speaker/headphone. With this feature, you are able to receive voicemail when you are offline or away. You can record call history for each and every call too. Besides, you are able to select your desired ringing tone as well.

It’s time to get a pair of headphone and microphone, if you still don’t have one. I suppose this new feature inevitably poses threat to another free VoIP service provider, Skype. Meanwhile, MSN Messenger will need to catch up again. :p
