Reviewing nice IT certification service “uCertify” – part 1

Certification is very important in nowadays’ IT world especially if you want a more advanced and higher paid job.

You can go for the original certification books and software (e.g. from Microsoft) but I found the translations are often questionable and the training software often crashed or didn’t work at all on my computer. Plus they tend to be expensive or require a lot of hardware (multiple computers to install for practicing some parts).

uCertify is cheaper and different in this aspect

The training works without a book and comes as a download. The software consists of 2 parts, the lessons that first explain you some things and then inquiry you about what you just learned and the training area.

The training area is pretty cool as well!

If you go through a training and then checks results, it not only shows you your false answer and the correct answer, but also explains you why it is in “fact” the way it is!

*this review will continue as soon as I had a chance to dig into it a bit deeper!*

ICQ 7.6 final with GTalk support, ICQ for iPhone 2.8 and ICQ on-site released!

As announced by Moshe Kigler in the ICQ Beta Testers facebook group, ICQ 7.6 final and ICQ on-site beta has been released.

So, now ICQ can connect you to 4 different IM accounts at once:

Google Talk, Facebook Chat, AIM and of course ICQ itself.

Despite being mentioned as not working in the Known Issues list, ICQ for Mac and ICQ for Linux can handle GTalk contacts as well. You cannot add them from within the client but if you have added them using ICQ for Windows or ICQ for iPhone, then they will display as available if they are online and you can chat with them.

ICQ on-site beta however is a widget you can put into your blog or website to provide visitors an abillity to chat.

Interesting is: For the first time the ICQ Team even provides a direct way of support incase you have any problem with the widget!

Last but not least they also released ICQ for iPhone 2.8 to add GTalk functionality. Android will be coming later!

ICQ 7.6 Beta with Google Talk (GTalk) and Skype 5.5 final with Facebook Chat released!

The different instant messaging worlds just came a bit closer to each other as recently, as new compatibility features were included in both, ICQ and Skype:

The ICQ Team finally released ICQ 7.6 Beta and Skype its Windows client in version 5.5 final. Now you wonder why the final and why not blogging earlier when the beta was out? Because the beta caused so much CPU load that it was bareably usuable!
