Best free and Open Source Live Chat software.

I have finally discovered what I believe to be the best Open Source (and therefore free) software to use in a Live Chat scenario! Open Web Messenger (or Mibew) developed by one or two guys is incredible.

Frequent updates and a friendly support Forum with quick responses led me to like it very quickly indeed. If you’ve been looking for something like this and don’t want to pay vast amounts for things like Live Person!

Open Web Messenger even has Live Person look-a-like skins – they have even developed a client for Windows with others in the works I do believe.

Biggest iPhone rival yet?

The Toshiba TG01 smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.1 I believe has to be undoubtedly the best and biggest attempt to take on the iPhone yet.

It’s running a 1Ghz Qualcomm processor for christ sake! (iPhone/Blackberry run at around ~600-700Mhz)

It has everything, and I mean everything. You’ve got your standard mobile, obviously, but then you have WiFi, built in GPS, possibility of adding hundreds of apps and whatever you think  about it will probably do.

I am very impressed indeed.


Also a video which you can view here sampling the Kinoma Play app on the phone:

This I am sure will turn heads. I can see it kick the Blackberry and HTC phones high out the water and be the biggest iPhone alternative out there.
