There is an ongoing debate over the vuvuzela horns, which are being used by fans in the football matches in the ongoing FIFA World Cup. These vuvuzela horns are buzzed by the fans throughout the match.
Officials are even planning to ban the vuvuzela, as the noise created by the instrument disturbs the players. Players like Christiano Ronaldo have expressed their displeasure regarding the usage of these horns.
Fans are divided over the issue. Some fans are of the view that it creates an electrifying ambience in the ground which adds to the enthusiasm, while others agree with the players.
The vuvuzela emits a sound, which is like the hissing of bees.
Friday morning witnessed the 30 smartphone applications based on the theme of vuvuzela, meant for the open source Android platform.
Around 12 applications were also available on the Apple's App Store. The store sells applications for the iPad and iPhone. These phones emit vuvuzela like sounds.
People gave mixed responses to Vuvuzela 2010, which is another application. Some people said that it was very irritating, while others called it funny.
The vuvuzela fever seems to have gripped the fans, with twitter having a separate account called the_vuvuzela, which gets a number of posts from fans, daily.
Android has given a strange name to one of its applications, which is called "Screw Vuvuzela".
