Google Voice comes to India

Looks like Google Voice is activated for India or at least for my account. I came to know about it as soon as I logged into my Gmail Account and was greeted by notification which said “Make Free Calls through 2011″ which is absolutely free for US and Canada this year.  Though doubtful I tried making a call to a US number it worked like a charm, the first thing to notice was amazing voice clarity.
To use this you will need to be signed to Google Chat within Gmail and you should be able to see a new icon which says call. When you click on it, it will ask to install a small application required for Google Voice followed by restart of the browser.
Once  everything is installed  and you get back to your Gmail account and signed into chat, click on the green call button and you will a dialer on bottom right of your browser using which you can make calls. All your call history are stored in your account which can be seen here.
However number porting is still not available under my account, I can only see Billing and Account.
Below are the screenshots of Google Voice

Kingston Launches HyperX Plug and Play RAM for Intel PCs

Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
