Whatsapp Messenger is going to be paid 0,01€; totally false

Another spam is currently making its way into Whatsapp users, saying something like:

WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.

Well, don’t worry about it, there is nothing true in it. Actually, it’s not even the first time that a message like this one is being sent through our smartphone:

“Whatsapp is shutting down on 28th jan Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of Whatsapp) we have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or whatsapp will no longer recognise your activation. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation from the Whatsapp team”

When you ping a website you actually test if a remote computer or server can be reached with an Internet connection, by sending and monitoring ICMP packets. It may be useful if you want to test it, or if you just want to have some fun. Mac OS X allows to do this by using the Terminal application and using a simple line of command.

First of all, open the Terminal application, located in Applications > Utilities. When you launch it, type this line of code

iPad mini: the full review about the new Apple’s 7,9″ device

The iPad mini was introduced a few weeks ago, and today we’re featuring a complete, in-depth review about the new 7,9″ device “designed by Apple in California”.


When we open the white box of the iPad mini, you will find an iPad mini (really?!), Lightning connector, power adapter and the quick start guide. In this review, we’re going to use a White, 32GB, WiFi model.


Here you see a comparison against the big brother iPad with Retina Display and the iPhone 4S. The difference between the iPad Retina and the iPad mini is only 1,8″, but it’s dimensions are considerably smaller because of the borders which are more shallow than the first one.
