    Following in the long line of updates that came after the Retina iPad was released, Skype now joins the band wagon. This week Skype announced its 3.8 version especially optimized for the new tablet.

    This is good news indeed, since Skype keeps being the top choice for people looking to connect via phone calls or chat at a very decent price. Skype might have been the company that foresaw the potential in internet enabled voice chat and can be considered in part responsible for the change of dogma regarding normal telephone calling.

    But before we all get too excited, let’s pause and make one thing clear. The Skype Retina update applies only to how the application actually looks and not the quality of transmitted videos. The iPad might boast the amazing display but it can’t really do the same with the camera. The tablet sports an average VGA camera that can barely push 640x480 video. So, apart from the Retina improved interface, the update doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Have fun connecting with the world!

    Sidenote: If you are a Gmail user, here’s a nice little trick you might find handy in improving your email experience. Find your account settings and find the General section. When you get there, you should run into an option “Personal level indicatorsâ€. There’s an option to not show the indicators but you should check the other one: “Show indicators – display an arrow by messages sent to my address (not mailing list) and a double arrow by messages sent only to me. Voila, now you have a new way of sorting emails out. The process doesn’t take more than a few clicks and a couple of minutes.
