T-Mobile  announced its new Bobsled brand, a Facebook application that will let you make free, “one-touch” calls to any of your friends around the world. Facebook is apparently just the beginning for the brand, though. T-Mobile says Bobsled is aimed at “bridging traditional telecommunications and Internet-based voice and data services,” and it says it plans to expand the service in the near future to include video chat, the ability to place VoIP calls to mobile and landline phones, and even offer applications on both smartphones and tablets “regardless of the carrier that powers such devices.” No word on how soon any of that might hit, but you can try out the Facebook application for yourself right now at the link below.

T-Mobile has just announced it’s temporarily shuttering the recently launched VoIP service. A statement released on Bobsled’s Facebook profile revealed it is “voluntarily and temporarily suspending service” of its week-old app to “ensure that the Bobsled experience is clearly differentiated and is not mistaken for a Facebook created property.”  No word yet on when the service will be back up and running, but this doesn’t bode well for T-Mo’s foray into the VoIP market.

Android Central spotted a tweet from Direct TV, confirming the news that some Android handsets are going to see HBO Go Streaming service activated on May 2nd.  There is no word as of yet as to which handsets will see the service, but you can probably guess that it will be the newer, higher end Android handsets (HBO Go requires 3G).

$400 – Pick-up

The Epson Stylus Pro 9000 InkJet Printer is a reliable, efficient and Economical printer combining high quality and wide formats.

  • Resolutions up to 1440 x 720 dpi – photo quality posters.
  • 150 sheet input capacity, or rolls.
  • Accept various medium – paper, vinyl, fabric, canvas, mylar. Rolls or sheet-fed.
  • Extra set of inks, plus roll of paper and mylar.

I paid $2k for this a couple years ago ($8,000 new), used it once, and left the country for a job. It worked perfectly; now the inks are dry so needs the lines drained and cleaned with a special fluid for that. I talked to Epson tech support and they are friendly and knowledgeable, and they assured that was a pretty common task for a printer that’s not used frequently.

I was in prepress, very familiar with printing> Not trying to sell you a lemon! More of a web designer now, do very little printing.
