Data Transfer Through Audio: What You Need to Know

Posted By Mark Jaconson

Despite the fact that our gadgets are progressively interconnected, there are times when they can’t interface with the web. All things considered, you can exchange a few information starting with one gadget then onto the next utilizing shared network like Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, or NFC. Be that as it may, every one of these arrangements requires some particular equipment and APIs which are not accessible. Despite what might be expected, we realize that each telephone has, by definition, a mouthpiece and a speaker. That is the reason we chose to think of an option that transmits information over sound waves.

Constraints of Audio Technology

Bluetooth transfer

In this approach, the huge obstacle is the data transfer capacity. Without a doubt, speakers and mouthpieces can’t manage a full range of frequencies: outside the capable of being heard range they don’t work so well. So we need to utilize a tight range, subsequently conveying a confined data transfer capacity. However, regardless of the possibility that trading large documents is out of the table, it remains a constructive approach to exchange contact information, Wi-Fi passwords or short messages altogether.

Review: Chax Adds to iChat What Apple Won’t

Posted By IMP Staff

When Apple announced iChat in 2003, Mac AIM users were enthusiastic: AOL’s own Mac client hadn’t really made the adjustment to OS X, and there was little indication Mac users would be full citizens on AIM any time soon.

Though iChat did a lot to bring feature parity to Mac users, it was a little behind the curve in terms of the interface features people were coming to expect from third party IM clients. Independent developers went to work modifying iChat to include features they’d hoped to see.

Chax, written by Kent Sutherland, is one of the more comprehensive iChat add-ons available, and it has been under steady update since 2005. At first, it offered some interface polish Apple itself hadn’t bothered with: It tweaked the display of buddy names, fixed annoying window placement bugs, made it easier to get at chat logs, and added unread message notification to the iChat dock icon.

AOL Opens AIM Some More

Posted By IMP Staff

AOL today announced that it has launched Open AIM 2.0, an update to the API and SDK the company provides to third-party instant messaging developers who write clients and services for use with AOL’s AIM network. AOL announced the first version of Open AIM one day shy of two years ago.

In its first release, Open AIM was largely characterized by the technical advantages it conferred on third-party developers by providing a flexible SDK that worked with a number of popular programming languages in the Windows environment. At the same time, its license was somewhat protective of AIM, prohibiting developers from using it with multi-network IM clients such as Trillian or Pidgin.

Though some developers are still uncertain of how (or if) they can take advantage of the new release, AOL has lifted some of the restrictions it placed two years ago, and it has provided more access and documentation to OSCAR, AIM’s key protocol. With Open AIM 2.0, a number of OSCAR features are now exposed through the new APIs. Spokespersons for AOL confirmed that SSL encryption, for instance, is now available to third-party developers.
