Migration from Windows Messenger to Skype starts 8th April


Starting April 8th, we will begin upgrading customers from Messenger to Skype. The process will take a few weeks to complete. April 8th is the first day you may be required to upgrade. This is a bit later than the March 15th date we previously mentioned to some of you as we wanted to give you more time to make the transition.

To keep chatting with your Messenger contacts, simply upgrade to the latest version of Skype using the instructions below and sign in using a Microsoft account (this is the same ID you use to sign into Messenger). Once signed in, your contacts will already be there. You’ll be able to instant message and make video calls with them just like before, and start discovering new ways of staying in touch, including Skype on your mobile or tablet.

Upgrade now

Yours sincerely,
The Messenger and Skype Teams

The Premium Suite is a slew of software enhancements made by Samsung to further enhance the Android experience. Plus, the Note will also be getting Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (more…)

Choosing a Tablet


Except you’ve been under a rock for the past year or so, you’ll know that slates are all the rage particularly that from the fruit company. Although, it’s no longer plain sailing not if the South Korean chaebol has any thing to say about it.

Of course, you shouldn’t get one because you want to keep up with the Joneses or say “me too” to your boss (which could get you “redeployed”, even “downsized!”). It can actually do much more. (more…)
