  • Now there may be mobile phone messages that self destruct
    users to celebrities and business people Mishandled or leaked messages have been the ruin or embarrassment of many high profile companies in the past So this new technology will be a godsend for those who may potentially find themselves in that position Research showed that more business leaders would more likely use their mobile phones instead of their computers to deal with a crisis or to reach someone quickly Barnum went on to say More and more business people when they reach for their mobile phone are sending text to contact people they need to reach immediately If they can do that and self destruct their text at the same time it is better for them The idea came from technology used in the military StealthText works by using WAP Wireless Application Protocol so mobile phones must be WAP enabled to use it The sender will have to download the StealthText applet A text will be received by the recipients of the sender s name and a link to the message Once a text message has been opened recipients have 40 seconds to read them before they are deleted Once the recipient has signed up to the service they can reply to the message and also create a private communicate channel Barnum said that the intention of the service was for businesses only but the odd celebrity or high profile person may also want to subscribe to it She added We have had an overwhelming response in the UK We think people will understand that the service is adding to their personal comfort as they have to control what s happening to their information We think this will raise their level of control in a world that is getting more dangerous for personal information every day To meet legal requirement

  • Orange launches a Unique service
    service Mon 25 Sep 2006 Orange customers will soon be able to use their mobile handset to make unlimited calls via their home broadband connection using convergence The system called Unique will come to Britain later in 2006 and will be offered to those who subscribe to an Orange mobile and broadband contract It is expected that the phone operating on Orange s mobile network and a Livebox will be free In France Unique will be known as Unik The converged service hopes to attract new customers while keeping existing ones by persuading them to take a bundle of products The first service of this type to be launched in the UK was by BT with BT Fusion Their product also connects users to broadband when at home and to Vodafone BT s network when away from home Genion launched by O2 in Germany has proved to be a success offering cheap calls to customers in a homezone a defined area Be Broadband was recently acquired by O2 to launch their converged service in the UK More information about this should be available in the coming months The service by Orange will use wi fi phones however it is anticipated that users mobility will be subject to technological constraints Although the handset can be used to make calls on a mobile network or wi fi there is not handover between the two Therefore a user making a call from home and then gets into their car plugs the phone into their hands free will find that the call will end The home internet cover will remain in the home and will not transfer when you leave that environment In comparison Genion run by O2 is run using the mobile network so a call made in a homezone can be continued
