    Managing Your Contacts with Firefox OS

    Since the era of iPhone and Android, you'll rarely heard cases about "losing contacts" because your phone was lost or just stop working. There'll be no worry because you just need to get a new device, log in to your (gmail/apple id) account and voila! your contacts is restored. It's so easy compare to Nokia/Blackberry era when you have to hook up your device to computer and do the manual backup as often as you can.

    A Week with Firefox OS Flame

I was using the phone for the past week, not doing much actually. Mostly i used it for making couple of calls (voice and ussd), browsing, trying some apps, taking screenshots and photos.

At that time, only Geeksphone selling Keon and Peak to open market. But they seemed to be unable to fulfil the developers’s enthusiasm to get the device.

    a Chromecast. Wait, is that…. FirefoxCast?

    Ada yang tahu Chromecast? Buat yang belum, Chromecast ini adalah perangkat keluaran Google untuk video streaming yang bentuknya ga lebih gede dari USB stick yang kamu punya. Harganya hanya $35, bisa diorder di Amazon atau coba tanya ke toko-toko komputer/elektronik terdekat. Lihat video dibawah ini deh. Sudah selesai menyimak video iklannya? Nanti bisa nyambung ke video paling bawah untuk gambaran lebih detil mengenai perangkat ini yah :) Nah, sekarang beritanya. Mozilla dikabarkan sedang membuat perangkat sejenis tapi tentu saja dengan Firefox OS sebagai sistem operasinya. Eh yang beneran nih? Ummm, proyek ini sih sebenarnya masih misterius dan belum dikonfirmasi. Cuman tweet dari Chris Heilmann 2 hari lalu sepertinya semakin…

    Welcome Firefox v30

    #CariMukaKatanya :D Available for Mac, Windows and Android near you :) 10 Juni kemarin Mozilla mengumumkan versi terbaru Firefox v30. Nah, apa saja yang ditawarkan oleh browser open-source berusia 10 tahun ini di versi terbarunya? Sebenarnya ga banyak sih update yang ditawarkan, dibandingkan versi 29 yang secara tampilan dah beda banget. Terdapat tombol baru yang memudahkan kita untuk akses ke bookmark, social, dan history GStreamer 1.0 yang akan memanjakan pengguna Linux untuk dapat mengakses video H.264 via browser seperti halnya AAC dan MP3 Plugin yang tidak ada di whitelist plugin Firefox atau bukan bagian dari extension browser ga akan aktif secara otomatis.
