Firefox Announces iPhone App

Mozilla has announced plans to launch a free iPhone Application that will let you access most of your Firefox browser data on the iPhone. Called Firefox Home, the native iPhone app gives you access to your Firefox browser history, bookmarks, and Awesome Bar. Home will also sync any currently open tabs from Firefox on your desktop to the iPhone, giving you "on the go" instant access to important Web pages.

According to the official Mozilla Blog the app will be submitted by June. At that point Apple will either approve or reject it. Firefox Home is designed for iPhone and Ipod Touch. No announcement yet for the iPad.

Firefox Home is not a full pledged browser like Opera Mini or Safari. Apple prohibits third-party applications from including their own rendering engine and JavaScript interpreter, according to Mozilla. Instead, applications must use the iPhone's technology for these processes, which basically means Firefox's underlying technology can't be used on the iPhone. Opera got around this problem by rendering Web pages on its servers and then sending the finished page to the iPhone. cnet

Firefox Home will also be a one-way channel, meaning you can send your desktop browsing information to your iPhone, but you will not be able to send data from your iPhone to desktop versions of Firefox.

One solution to the one-way data problem would be to build a JavaScript bookmarklet for Safari for iPhone that would let you sync your iPhone browsing data with Firefox; however, Mozilla says it has no plans to do this at the moment.

Smart Philippines is testing their WiMax

MANILA, Philippines – Smart Communications Inc. has taken its first steps to massively deploying WiMAX technology across the country.

According to a reliable source, During his test the speed is around 3Mbps at 3km from the base station. I asked him if Smart will going to cap the speed and he said "YES". But the cap is according to the subscriber's plan. After the said test they are going to deploy the new hardware for QoS or Quality of Service. For Luzon subscriber will getting hardware from Motorola and for Visayas-Mindanao from Huawei.

Smart is the only mobile carrier in the Philippines that  uses HSPA "High Speed Packet Access" at 850Mhz and 20 in the whole world.
"With our HSPA, WiMAX, and Canopy networks blanketing the whole country, Smart will have a unique and by far superior combination of wireless broadband networks," Vea said.
"It has been our vision to provide Internet for all Filipinos — no matter where they are or what device they’re using," said Orlando Vea, Smart’s chief wireless advisor.

WiMAX is a wireless digital communications system, also known as IEEE 802.16, that is intended for wireless "metropolitan area networks". WiMAX can provide broadband wireless access (BWA) up to 30 miles (50 km) for fixed stations, and 3 - 10 miles (5 - 15 km) for mobile stations. In contrast, the WiFi/802.11 wireless local area network standard is limited in most cases to only 100 - 300 feet (30 - 100m). So even the last point of cellular signal can have internet access with Smart's 8,700 cell sites across the country, housing various network equipment, including antenna for GSM, HSPA and Canopy. Very soon, these same towers will play host to Smart’s extensive WiMAX network.

For the trial, Smart and Motorola installed the WAP 450 WiMAX Access Points equipment to a number of cell site towers across the country. The WAP 450 utilizes tower top power amplifiers that can be housed in a small cabinet, allowing for a compact cell site configuration.

Flash 10.1 for Android beta unveiled

Abobe is pushing out of its Flash 10.1 playeralongside with Google's own beta for Android 2.2 "Froyo". By June we might see the full release. It will be available as a Marketplace download.

Adobe is trying to work with OEMs to possibly preload it on the devices so that will come by default.

With Android 2.1 "Eclair", Why not 2.1?

There are API changes in the OS that Flash is dependent on, and if we're able to find alternatives, then certainly we'd look to support Eclair as well. At this point, the APIs we need are only in Froyo. A good example is outside of the browser, our Air team have been working with Eclair and think they can continue to support a significant chunk of Air SDK. The Air SDK should be usable on an Eclair platform.

The Minimum requirement of Flash 10.1 for non Android devices:

CPU: 600Mhz +
RAM: 64MB for browser "allocated"

Impressions: Adobe Flash 10.1 Player beta on Nexus One with Android 2.2 OS Froyo

Just finished installing the MagicJack.

magicJack is a device that plugs into a USB port on the user's computer. It uses a standard RJ-11 phone jack into which any standard phone can be plugged. This allows the user to make phone calls to any phone in the U.S. and Canada for a fixed charge.

It is a computer peripheral that, in combination with telephony service from the related YMAX Corporation, provides Internet-based telephone service (VoIP) to the United States and Canada. The firm's primary product is a USB device that holds both the software necessary to place Internet-based telephone calls via a customer-supplied high-speed internet connection, and electronics (technically known as a SLIC, or Subscriber Line Interface) supporting conventional landline telephones to be plugged directly into same device. The products are promoted through television infomercials and a website.

The company's website attributes the invention of magicJack and the founding of YMAX to Dan Borislow, who has numerous patent claims pending on voice-over-IP (VoIP)-related technology.

The magicJack device works exclusively with the company's captive landline supplier and CLEC (Competitive Local Exchange Carrier), YMAX.
