Rafael Rivera of Within Windows fame has done some more digging into the claims of Samy Kamkar that led to a lawsuit being filed against Microsoft. The lawsuit claimed that location data was being sent to Microsoft without user consent. Though met with initial skepticism due to the vague nature of the filing, Rafael finds that the claims are, in fact, true.
A Couple of days before we reported about Xync - An Unofficial app for Microsoft Lync. Matt Landis, in his blog post wondered why Microsoft is yet to release official apps for Lync. Looks like the folks at MSFT were not sleeping after all. Microsoft is all set to launch Lync Mobile for your Windows Phone and for other mobile platforms too. For all those who have probably heard Lync for the first time , Microsoft Lync caters to business users with a wide range of services like messaging, videoconferencing, presence, and microblogging.
The Windows Phone client for Lync Mobile will run on both the original version of Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Apart from Windows Phone 7, Microsoft Lync will also be available for Android and iPhone – which perfectly makes sense because of the market share these two mobile platforms enjoy.
According to Information Week, Microsoft Lync is all set to receive a big update beyond the mobile version which will allow desktop users to make Internet calls directly from within Lync to any landline or mobile device. Microsoft is rolling out the service in collaboration with mobile VoIP specialist Jah Jah.
Lync seems to be ( and is ) the perfect platform for Microsoft to integrate Skype but the Company is not yet talking about how it plans to use Skype until Regulators sign off the deal.
