2007 Predictions

As you can see from my FIFA World Cup Predictions, I’m not very good at these things but most items are more of a wish list…

  • F. C. Porto wins the Champion’s League (for the third time)
  • I win Euromillions
  • George W. Bush is tried for war crimes
  • Sunnis, Shiites, Jews, Christians and Agnostics finally realize we´re all human beings
  • The richest countries in the world commit themselves to help the poorest
  • USA ratifies the Kyoto Protocol

Wait… this used to be a blog about technology 😛

  • The Linux Desktop finally starts to be relevant
  • GPL Java has a huge impact on Linux distributions
  • Mobile Internet usage increases exponentially
  • Adobe Flex and Apollo get the spotlight

Bugs happen!

This is very bad publicity but I keep my faith in JBoss 🙂

VoIP: A buzzword to be taken seriously

Some time ago I had a conversation with a friend who told me mobile phone networks where going to be forced to a paradigm shift.

They sell mainly voice services and this is quickly becoming obsolete. VoIP is the reason for this.

The tendency is that they’ll progressively transform into mobile ISPs. I have a GPRS / UMTS PCMCIA internet access card. Since I have a flat rate and (almost) broadband internet access, I’m able to use VoIP applications everywhere and make free calls (not to every networks, of course).

There’s one inconvenient. I’m not going to carry my laptop everywhere, the way I do with a mobile phone, leaving it always on. The solution is in applications like Skype for Pocket PC.
