Remember WhatSim, a worldwide SIM card that offers unlimited chat on WhatsApp in 150 countries for only €10? Well, WhatSim has just renamed itself to ChatSim and it now offers you unlimited chat to a whole lot more messaging services. It is the “first Sim in the world that makes you chat with everyone free of charge and with no limits. Anywhere in the world”.

The web companion for Whatsapp has finally arrived on Firefox and Opera browsers. Users will be able to log into the service in the same manner as the Chrome version, that is by scanning the QR code from the app. It looks like other browsers will be added to the list in time, but this is good news for those who would rather not use Chrome.
Opera, who is mainly known for its web browser, has announced the testing of App Pass for Opera Max. This will allow users to access a free of charge wireless data connection for selected apps. Essentially, it would allow apps like Spotify or Facebook to access the internet without any charges of hours per day. It is being tested with Norwegian teleco Telenor, who happen to own DiGi and have brought it to Malaysia.
As it turns out, “millions” of Facebook users were not aware that they are using the Internet to access the service. Apparently, to them, the Internet did not exist, and Facebook is viewed independently of it. If this sounds ridiculous, you’d be surprised at the other misconceptions that these people have.
First launched in 1939, the View-Master slide viewer is such an iconic toy to the extent that those who had the chance to use it when they were young still have fond memories of viewing 3D-like sceneries from all over the world through the device. Despite being almost 75 years old though, the way that it operates still remained generally the same until today.
That about to change soon though as Mattel has recently revealed a new version of View-Master that acts as a virtual reality viewer. Made possible through a collaboration between Mattel and Google, the new View-Master is actually based on the Google Cardboard platform.
A woman sits before a rack of what appears to be dozens of iPhone 5Cs all set to the Apple App Store. This image has been circulating around social media claiming to be a ranking manipulation service that allows developers to pay to boost their work into the top ten free apps.
Pixaworks Creative announced the official launch of StartupHouse, an incubator programme that aims to bring the startup culture of Silicon Valley to the Klang Valley. This involves bringing five teams together to live under a single roof for three months and getting them to build apps.
The PlayStation 4 Remote Play feature is an interesting one that doesn’t really get as much use as it should. While the official feature is only available through the PS Vita, PlayStation TV, and a few Sony Xperia devices, an enterprising developer has found a way to get it on just about any device running on Android.
