Daily Tech: 18 Feb 2010

It’s Mobile World Congress! Lots of new phones being announced while we are busy celebrating Lunar New Year. Perhaps the biggest announcement is the announcement of Windows Phone 7 Series. Looks pretty promising. Hey! There is no more Start button.

Besides MWC2010, Google launched Google Buzz which is something like Twitter and Facebook Status. Lots of users complaint about privacy issues which prompted Google to apologise and make it easier for users to edit their privacy settings.

Oh, if you are using foursquare with Twitter updates, you might want to think again.
