Windows Phone unlocking service as part of ChevronWP7 Labs

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on June 19, 2011

As announced on the Windows Phone Dev Podcast, we will soon be launching an approved Windows Phone unlocking service as part of ChevronWP7 Labs. This will be available to developers across all skill levels and all regions.

The service will require a small fee — currently via PayPal — to offset costs but we assure you it will be more affordable than the App Hub. Those who wish to write and immediately publish apps are recommended to sign up to the App Hub instead.

Yahoo is busy or what? Cannot access yahoo e-mail!!!

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on June 17, 2011


What about your “free” e-mail accont? I think it’s a good value but it’s incredibly liabile of our e-mails. Today I cannot log into yahoo because the link on the master page is a “..king” anchor reference. I would like to humiliate the software release model through which they I suppose yahoo delivers to us the mail service. I’ve tried using Firefox and even Internet Ex plorer. There is no way to access the login page!! A piece of their markup:
<div id=”signin”>

or
<a rel=”nofollow” href=”#”>Sign in</a>
</div>

Can you please explain me what is “or” in yours page markup?
Mister yahoo could you please test yours service releases? Sure, I’m typed only http://it.mail.yahoo.com&#8230;

I want back my e-mail box!
Thanks!!!

Nokia and Microsoft form partnership

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on February 26, 2011

Nokia and Microsoft

Rory Cellan-Jones asks Nokia’s Stephen Elop and Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer why they chose to form an alliance
Nokia has joined forces with Microsoft in an attempt to regain ground lost to the iPhone and Android-based devices.

The deal will see Nokia use the Windows phone operating system for its smartphones, the company said.
It means that Nokia’s existing operating systems will be sidelined.

Symbian, which runs on most of the company’s current devices will become a “franchise platform”, although the company expects to sell approximately 150 million more Symbian devices in future.

“It is a transition from Symbian to Windows phone as our primary smartphone platform,” said Mr Elop.

Windows may not be the exclusive operating system for Nokia tablets though.
Stephen Elop and Steve Ballmer Mr Elop was at Microsoft before joining Nokia

“We reserve the right to introduce tablets using other platforms, including ones we may be working on internally,” he said.

Nokia’s upcoming Meego operating system will also be sidelined.

According to the company statement: “MeeGo will place increased emphasis on longer-term market exploration of next-generation devices.”

The MeeGo platform was expected to form the core of Nokia’s future smartphone and tablet strategy. The company says it still plans to ship one Meego device by the end of 2011.

For Magnus Rehle, the Nordic managing director of research firm Greenwich Consulting, Nokia may have difficulty juggling its three operating systems: Windows, Symbian and MeeGo.

“Three platforms is a lot to work with. I’m not sure there is room for so many platforms,” he said.

Skype is down, offline, dead!!! The incredible outage of dicember 2010!!!

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on December 23, 2010

No Skype
Yesterday we had two different troubles with the Skype connection. During all the afternoon Skype had disconnected multiple times when I talking with people or simply using chat functionalities. At 16.00 GMT Skype was definetely dead and there was no way to connect. So what is happend to Skype? Now, at 1.00 GMT, Skype is still cannot connect to the server and few informations are available about the reasons. It seems to be a worldwide massive outage day.The last outage was in the far 2007. It was a bad day for EBay.

The enormity of Skype going down is appreciated when you consider that last year it accounted for 12 percent of the world’s international calling minutes.

The official blog reports this communication. The official tweet of Skype says “Some of you may have problems signing in to Skype – we’re investigating, and we’re sorry for the disruption to your conversations” . You can stay tuned on other twitter comments using #Skype keyword. You also can check this link for new announcements.

Take a look on this unbelievable chart.

geek in action

Hi everyone my name is Dmitrij Ivanov and I’m the first fan of the information technology in my family. Eventually I’ve decided to start this blog in english because I would like to improve my english. Every report on grammar or language mistakes are really appreciated! I would like to start to use this place to share my own experience about IT solutions I’ve done in the past and I put effort every day.
Excited by this new experience I’m going into the dimasite lab to start working on the next post.
