Wateen Telecom Launches its Wi-Max Services For Home Users: Confusions and Cool things!

Wateen finally  launched its WI-FI broadband for home users on 16 December 2007.

This service was awaited so much with a lot of expectations. But the question is: is this what we waited for?

Wateen's web site has enough ajax to impress Pakistanis but still its pretty unclear about the services it provides. Most of stuff there is confusing! CEO is taking about about 'tadaaaa!' and 'wow' of his own company and a cluster of mixture of packages enough to confuse an average Pakistani reader. Plus there is written at end "All prices are exclusive of all taxes!". Come on Wateen guys, where are you standing? Why you want all people to call you? or visit you office? Why you have a website? is to display CEOs enthusiasm about its own company?  ...Few pages are still under construction even after 4 months of delay.

Ok enough criticism. Coolest thing is "yeayyy we have WI-MAX in Pakistan!" and now we have one of the largest hotspot in the world-Thanks to Wateen :) ...And its as affordable as other Broadband Services

First Moonlight port of Silverlight to Linux due in six months

Miguel de Icaza, Vice President of Developer Platforms at Novell, said this week the first release of "Moonlight" -- Novell's port of Microsoft's Flash-competitor Silverlight to Linux -- should be done in another six months. De Icaza provided an update on that status of Moonlight during this week's XML 2007 conference. Moonlight 1.0 (which will not include support for Mono, Novell's port of .Net to Linux -- not surprising given that Silverlight 1.0 doesn't support .Net, either) is due in six months. Moonlight 1.1, which does include Mono support, is application-programming-interface (API) complete now, and will be ready shortly thereafter. Moonlight 2.0, which will be based on Silverlight 2.0 (the product formerly known as Silverlight 1.1) will be out six...

Apple filing details multitasking touch-screen for mobile gaming

Apple is always had less-than-enthusiastic stance towards gaming, so the company's latest patent filing seems a bit out of character, seeing as it details a multitasking touchscreen that would allow games to be played while still controlling other applications like media players. The system works be categorizing touch inputs and routing the data to the appropriate application -- a simple tap might go to the game, while a longer press might be sent to the media player. According to Apple, "the invention allows various applications to be integrated and used on devices that are not readily suitable for supporting multiple applications at the same time." Of course, there's no word on when we might see this make its way into an actual product, but if this means we might see games on the iPod touch and iPhone, bring it on.
