Skype’s video messaging service, available in beta form since February, is now an official part of the popular free calling service.
With Video Messaging for Skype you can record a video message and send it to friends, family and colleagues who aren’t online. They will see the message the next time they log in to Skype.
Video Messaging is accessible via Skype for Windows desktop, Skype for Windows 8, Skype for Mac, Skype for iPhone, Skype for iPad, Skype for Android, and Skype for BlackBerry.
“There’s also no limit to the number of video messages you can send or receive and the messages themselves may be as long as 3 minutes” – Not true because on the Blackberry Z10, It showed 25 free Videos, Upgrade to Premium to do Unlimited
Skype’s blog didn’t mention support for Microsoft’s Windows Phone, however, which seems odd since Microsoft owns Skype. CNET contacted Microsoft for comment and will update the story with further information. – CNET

I read this post from Richard Darell and cannot but want to write about it or not want to share it. If you have been using the Internet since it became popular sometime during the late ’80s or the beginning of the ’90s, you know that it has changed significantly since then. Our entire society revolves around it now, and seemingly every technology company is putting some effort into converting their products into online gadgets. It doesn’t matter if it is a toaster or the latest smartphone, they are all being modified with each model, and it won’t be long before you can’t even buy a gadget or appliance without having to plug it into the Internet. The Internet has become so popular that we now spend more time online than we spend outside in the real world. That means that we’re actually online even when we’re outside.

Where were you on the Internet in 2010? What about in 2011? The folks over at Royal Pingdom have compiled a nice set of data for the Internet, by the Internet. That is, an entire list of data about email, websites, web servers, domain names by their .dot web addresses, Internet users by country, types of social media, web browser usage, mobile users, videos and images. We decided to take a look at the data points that tell us the most about the read/write web: websites and domain names, Facebook, Twitter and Internet users by continent. More importantly, we’ll look at how the Internet of 2011 compares to the Internet of 2010.

Service like bit.ly has helped people with short link sharing but hey! Twitter is releasing features to make Twitter easier to use on link sharing and it has just released by popular demand – automatic link shortening on Twitter.com.
One of the emerging new App is GroupMe and surprisingly It’s getting a fair share of App popularity at the moment. Since there’s basically an app for everything, One wonders what is so special about this one. What has captured the attention of tech nerds, and social network junkies all over? In case you’re a bit late to the party, GroupMe is a social app that lets you create groups with your friends to share texts, photos, locations and conference call.
