Motorola Droid Razr HD / Vanquish / Fighter a.k.a XT926 Battery spec revealed

So if you are following the Droid Razr HD / Vanquish / Fighter a.k.a XT926 fiasco chances are you know that few days ago the Droid RAZR HD has passed the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which means that the release date is fast approaching.

if you did not know, then now you know!

What you do not know probably is its battery capacity, many people speculated that it will have the same battery life as Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX (3300 mAh) .. unfortunatly that is not going to happen according the FCC reveleaed specs, … the device will feature a 2530 mAh battery (exact model number is SNN5915A)

That is a little disappointing, but the battery should still prove that it is good combined with the efficient s4 processor.

exact info can be found in the Portable Cellular Phone SAR Test Report.

Google +1 button now available for use on websites, Facebook’s Like should tremble with fear

Google has decided to dip its toe in the water and now the +1 button is available for publishers, bloggers and basically everyone to put on their websites.

Introducing the +1 Button

The button, as you may remember, was found only on the Google’s search results page, but as it turns out the search giant is taking it one step further. Rather than waiting for you to search a page, figure it’s useful and then “+1″ it, Google lets publishers take the initiative and allow people to recommend their website right on it.
In order to use it, though, you will have to allow it from your Google’s account settings. You will only see your friends’ recommendations if you have opted for it, so don’t forget to put a check next to it.
Google has now put the “+1 button” on Android’s Market website as well, so give it enough time and we should see if the recommended apps are the most downloaded ones. We too have placed a “+1″ here in our blog so if you feel a post may be useful to others just hit the new button.

عودتنا جوجل على مسميات الحلويات لإصدارات نظام تشغيلها الرائع للهواتف الأندريد و هذه المرة قد تأكد أن النسخة القادمة ستكون مسماها ساندويتش ايس كريم (انظر الصورة أعلاه) و بهذا اظنهم وصلوا لمستوى جديد من الحلويات

السؤال الذي يطرحه الجميع الآن اصدارة سندويتش ايس كريم ستكون اي اصدارة ؟ لأن الجيجنربريد نزل باصدار 2.3 و يقال عن اصدار الهوني كومب سيكون 3.0 و هو مخصص للتاب (للحاسب اللوحي) و ليس للهاتف

فهل سيكون الايس كريم اصدار 2.4 ام انه سيكون 3.1

ماذا لو قررت جوجل ان جميع اصدارات الهاتف ستكون

2.x

و اصدارات الحاسب اللوحي

3.x

و السؤال الأهم ما هي خصائص هذا الآيس كريم ساندوتش ما مدى مذاقه اللذيذ و ما مدى برودته و سرعته و الخصائص الجديدة به ؟!

We are pleased to announce that ITA will held the first symposium on free software on the 9th of March 2010, the main objectives of the symposium is to shed the light on ITA national initiative to promote

This initiative comes as part of Information Technology Authority (ITA) strategic directions to play a neutral role towards promoting different technologies.

The symposium shall raise the awareness about the importance of free software because of its potential and competitive characteristics comparing with the commercial software.

The symposium will host a number of key speakers from different countries who will present different topics on issues related to free software movement and philosophy, Arab world initiatives towards promoting the use of free software at different levels and also the symposium will address the local needs to develop such industry in the Sultanate.

During the opening ceremony of the symposium ITA will sign a number of memorandums of understanding with Sultan Qaboos University, Nizwa University and Muscat Higher College of Technology to support the national initiative implementation.

The previous is an internal circulation coming  to you (after taking permission) directly from ITA internal website.

As many of you know this is the first symposium on free source , in fact this the first Government organized free source related event ever (as far as I know ). It is a great that the young Information Technology Authority (ITA) already exploring the Free Software as a way to implement eOman initiative. For me I will be eagerly waiting to meet Richard Stallman the founder of Free Software Foundation.

My second most exciting thing is ITA signing memorandums of understanding with the educational institutes. It seems that it will be the start of free source movement in Oman. If true, this will make the educational institutes into active and direct contributors to eOman vision through free software.
