If there is a resource connected to your gmail.com account called something similar to “MessagingXXXXXXX”, that’s the ‘new’ Google Hangouts (the one that doesn’t play nicely with XMPP). And quite possibly it’s the Android application for Google Hangouts.

So yes, Google Hangouts stays connected even if the device you’ve logged into from is not. Apparently this is a connection that’s created internally, inside Google, from their Hangouts service to their Talk service — from the new IM tech to the XMPP tech. And if you try to trick the XMPP service to sign out Hangouts (for example, by creating a new connection with identical XMPP resource), the Hangouts will happily log back into XMPP in your name and present you as ‘away’. And messages intended to be stored offline will end up in Hangouts, never to be seen again unless you use Hangouts on other systems.

okay, we need to port it to #maemo #meego #jolla #sailfish #sailfish-os #nemomobile #ubuntu-touch #ubuntu, and then we need #diaspora to use #mozilla #geolocation instead of #google. (:

Probably, my main problem with many saas services, including facebook, is that they quietly substitute ideas of technology with exact services. The verb “to google” is a perfect example, because we all know that web search is not limited to google.

Companies like facebook and twitter avoid using standard technologies, so that people think of services provided by company, forgetting that Internet is a network, and it’s about technologies, not companies. It’s a space where anyone can create a service, by using common underlying and free for all technologies.

That’s why saas avoids usage of rss, for example. That’s why there is a question “what’s your name on skype?” instead of “what’s your chat id?”, as we do with email.

Aside of using #amazon, #joindiaspora uses #google-analytics.

#Amazon only stores your data, but #google-analytics knows your behavior. Everything about eulalie you: where did you stop by for a while, and where did you went after.
