A Brighter Future for the Web!

Wanna know what this is all about?

Well it's about the new Firefox OS (operating system) for mobiles!

Mozilla is introducing it this July.




Now I am a fan of Mozilla, their innovation, and their efforts to provide products without the restrictions of other competing products,

Firefox OS is the first web based mobile operating system and it’s designed to give more people access to the Web from more places and in more ways than ever before. 
Built entirely using open standards (as Mozilla says), Firefox OS is free from the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms (also, as Mozilla puts it).

And that's not all!

Mozilla also announced the first smartphones to run using the new Firefox OS, the ZTE Open and Alcatel One Touch Fire. 



You can read about the new two phones here on Mashable, or through the following link:

Ajwibah.com



Well this in not the kind of website that I will review here on my technical blog; that's why I reviewed it on my main blog (the Husam Sarris Hub).

It is a new Arabic Question / Answer website.

So if you speak Arabic, or interested in the language, and you need a similar website, check out my review through the following link:

Hope you like it.

Happy Birthday Mozilla!



Another memory to celebrate today is the Birth of Mozilla!

Chances are you are already using one of their products at least.
If you not, you might have at least once.

I am a proud user of the FireFox browser.

To celebrate their birthday, Mozilla published 15 facts about themselves (since this is their 15th Birthday you know)

Click here to read the 15 facts about Mozilla. 



Happy 40th Birthday Cell Phones!

Can you believe that?
The first cell phone call was actually made 40 years ago (April 3rd 1973).

When were you introduced to cell phones?
I remember I bought my first cell phone on April 2001,
That's 12 years ago. I remember it was a dark blue Siemens A35 model (Siemens Cell phones division is closed now).

Ever since then I could not live without  a cell phone, in fact, there was a time when I carried a bunch of them around!

I remember how expensive cell phones, and SIM cards were at the beginning of their introduction.
Look how cheap, and spread they are.

Such technologies sometimes makes you ask, how did we live before Cell phones and the internet??

If you would like to read more about the anniversary, check out Mashable's article here.

Let's hear your thoughts.


The man in the picture is Mary Cooper, the Motorolla employee who made the first Cell phone call back then.
(I got this pic from Mashable).

QuerTime

Quertime.com

Yes that's right, Quer, and not Queer!
Sorry for the bad language, and sorry for not reviewing and posting for sometime now.

Let's have a fresh start this year, and let's start with an interesting website that I stumbled upon (and I do that a lot actually).

There is no specific technical category for Quertime.
It is full of articles that you will for sure find both interesting and useful.

Quertime says it provides useful websites, tools, tips, tools, and freebies.

you can find articles such as "13 Tips to Extend Your Smartphone Battery Life "

or " 9 Online Tools to Create Custom Maps and Get Directions" .

But personally, I find articles that provide lists  as the last one mentioned above, to be what you find most on Quertime.com.

So, I recommend liking their Facebook page, so you can follow them up, I'm sure you'll find lots of interesting technical stuff.

Enjoy, and don't forget to share.

Oh and BTW, like our Facebook page if you didn't yet, and invite your friends to like too.
We too have interesting stuff!
