Intel Offers CPU upgrade card

Thursday, September 30, 2010 0 comments

The new CPU upgrade card will have code contained in it that will give a speed bump to your processor and take its performance to the next level. Right now the CPU upgrade card is in its test phase and it will be soft launched in certain stores to gauge the consumer reaction.IntelInside

The new Cpu Upgrade card will be able to help PC owners running Pentium G6951 2.8 GHz dual core system might be able to take advantage of this new technology. The cards will be priced at a modest USD 50 and they will increase the computing power by a certain degree but don't expect Core i-7 like performances.

The CPU upgrade apparently unlocks some additional cache memory on the processor and provides 1MB of L3 cache. The code also activates hyper-threading, which forces the single core CPU to act like a dual core model. Intel representatives said that they want to give users a way to choose the level of performance they want from their processor. On the other hand we think this is a shoddy marketing strategy to make users cough up more money by locking up certain features in the hardware itself.

'Dabangg’ star Sonakshi tumbles down at the ramp

Tuesday, September 28, 2010 0 comments

Sonakshi’s career might have reached dizzying heights after her debut hit film ‘Dabangg’, but sadly the actress embarrassed herself badly at a recent fashion show in Bangalore.Sonakshi-Sinha

The actress fell flat while sashaying on the ramp as the showstopper at the 6th edition of Seagrams Blenders Pride Fashion Tour at Leela Palace Kempinski on Sunday.

Sonakshi was showstopper for designer Gavin Miguel
Zayed and Soanskshi, who walked the ramp as a show stopper for Vikram Phadnis and Gavin Miguel, on the day 2 of Seagrams Blenders Pride Fashion Tour did set the ramp on fire.

While for some it was a treat to watch Sonakshi in the golden flowing dress with edgy crystal embellishments on the ramp, others were disappointed to watch her disastrous trip after missing three steps on the ramp.

Talking about the stumble on the steps, choreographer Alison Woodham stated, “She was aware of the three steps as she watched the rehearsal in the afternoon soon after she arrived. She could have pulled up the gown while climbing down the stairs, which she didn't. I think she tripped on the outfit."

Sonakshi was embarrassed
It’s also believed that after the show, Sonakshi screamed at the organizers for not letting her know about the three steps before walking the ramp.

Incidentally, sources at the ramp stated that one must rehearse before the show and Sonakshi’s fall did embarrass everyone.

“She was very upset after exiting and screamed at one of the organizers, saying, 'Why didn't you tell me there were three steps?' It was embarrassing for everyone, including the designer. Since a show-stopper isn't a model, it's imperative for her to rehearse,” replied sources.

Meanwhile, the other showstopper Bollywood actor Zayed Khan, who walked for Vikram Phadnis stated that it was sad that Sonakshi fell on the ramp.

“But I love stunts and if I had tripped, I would have made it into a quick action act,” further added the actor.

BlackBerry unveils PlayBook tablet to take on iPad

Canadian wireless giant Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of the BlackBerry, Monday unveiled its tablet computer called PlayBook to take on Apple's iPad.blackberry-playbook-650x352

Targeted mostly at business people (like its BlackBerry smart phone), the PlayBook is half the size of the iPad. Weighing the same as the iPad, it is just 9.77 millimetre thick.

The tablet, which will fit neatly into a small corporate suitcase, is to hit the North American market early next year and available elsewhere later in 2011. Unveiling the PlayBook at the company developers' annual meeting in San Francisco, RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis said, "RIM set out to engineer the best professional-grade tablet in the industry with cutting-edge hardware features and one of the world's most robust and flexible operating systems.

"The BlackBerry PlayBook solidly hits the mark with industry leading power, true multitasking, uncompromised web browsing and high performance multimedia.''
The PlayBook supports 1080p high-definition video and carries two high-definition front and rear-facing cameras. Supported by one GHz dual-core processor, the tablet offers all BlackBerry applications as well as security specifications needed for business users.

The cheering news for BlackBerry users is that through a secure wireless link, the Playbook can also be used as a second and bigger screen for their smart phone. And when they disconnect the two, no secure BlackBerry will be left on the PlayBook.

Wherever Wi-Fi is not available,  users can access the Web by linking to their BlackBerry smart phone. Whereas Apple didn't use Flash in its iPad on the grounds that Adobe's software is full of bugs and drains battery, RIM's PlayBook offers Flash for video and interactive material on the web. In a way, Flash will make the PlayBook less dependent on third-party applications.

"I don't need to download a YouTube app if I have got YouTube on the web.  Much of the market has been defined in terms of how you fit the Web to mobility. What we're launching is really the first mobile product that is designed to give full web fidelity,'' said the RIM co-CEO.

As expected, the PlayBook will operate on a new software platform built by QNX Software Systems. The BlackBerry maker had acquired Ottawa-based QNX Software Systems for $200 million in April to have exclusive access to its software technology for its tablet. Indicating how powerful this QNX operating system is, RIM says it can work on machines that run four, eight, 16 and 32 processors.

The unveiling of the PlayBook is a smart move by the BlackBerry maker to remain as the top provider of mobile devices for business people, say analysts. According to them, since most companies have their IT department already deeply integrated with RIM technology because of their use of  BlackBerry smart phones, coporates and businesses will adopt the PlayBook, helping RIM establish a niche position in the tablet market despite early lead by Apple's iPad.

After the launch of Apple's iPad in April, Dell, Samsung, Cisco and RIM are all rushing into the tablet market.

Marlo Thomas

Sunday, September 26, 2010 0 comments

Marlo-ThomasMarlo Thomas:TV series “That Girl” was a hit in 1960 for Marlo Thomas. Many well-known and highly identifiable actresses have tried and Many other roles followed – in show business and in real life.
If you happen to be cruising New York Harbor, you can spot the man who looks a little familiar.

Marlo Thomas has to be one of the hardest working women in show business. Just ask a boat captain – who also happens to be her husband Thomas, a former talk show host Phil Donahue.

“I mean, her brain on fire and she just holds out his hand. It does not air kiss of life. She grabs him, and it is very impressive, actually.”

We learned, as Thomas TV “That Girl”, and she has appeared on countless other TV shows, including playing the mother of Rachel on “Friends.” Thomas won an Emmy for a more serious role, portraying a mentally ill woman in “Children’s Nobody’s”.

She has appeared on Broadway, too, and has published several books, including one of the new next week, “Growing up, laughing,” about life with her late father, the 1950′s and 60′s comedy star Danny Thomas.

He always said: “I’m not proud, I’ll take a joke from someone if it’s a good joke. And I think it really gave my sister and brother, and I’m a real leg to assess humor, laughter assessment,” she said.

Today, Marlo Thomas penthouse with views of Manhattan, but she grew up in Beverly Hills, where Tom was a hangout for some of the most famous American comedians.

Milton Berle: “. He was completely on all the time he entertained at our parties birthday he did card tricks are very bad..”

Sid Caesar. “Very quiet, most comfortable when he spoke in the accent”

On George Burns: “I just worshiped him that he is the one who stood up for me when my dad said that he did not want me to actress and George would have said: ..” What do you want it to be, a milliner? Of course, it’s going to be an actress. ”

On her father: “… He really did not want me to do this he had many rough years, the years of the start and it just was afraid for me, he told me later, he said:” I just Didn “I want to get through these first years with someone that I love. ”

But it is clicked, landing small roles in shows like “Bonanza,” where she played the role of the Sino-Persian bride mail who clashes with Hoss Cartwright.

But in 1966 she helped to develop his own show, about that yet, aspiring actress.
Thomas was supposed to have big hair. It was a revolutionary show, the first time in the history of the protagonist in a comedy was a young career woman who lived on her own. Further, only at the dawn of the women’s movement, the series was a hit.

So it was a big wave, and “That Girl” just rode that wave, “she said. Mail we got was simply amazing. I mean, I was expecting, I love your flips and all that. But they wrote to me and told me 22 years and have two children and a husband beats me, and I do not know where to go. ”

Those letters prompted Thomas to join forces with Gloria Steinem and other leading feminists found Ms. Foundation to assist women.

And she produced and starred in the historical record and album of the Emmy-winning TV show called “free to be you and me.” He urged young people not to be bound by gender stereotypes.

The scene where she and Harry Belafonte to appear, the couple raised a few eyebrows online.

“ABC asked us to take it. They also asked us to accept that William wants a doll, because it was, you know,” boys should not have dolls.

“But, you know, the country does not include parts. And no one got a doll that did not want a doll.”

Despite all this, Marlo Thomas is always time for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, raising funds, and support groups. This was another part of her family heritage.

And proudly shines above all is Danny Thomas. Marlowe’s father, founded the hospital in 1962.

“We thought St. Jude was one of our uncle, we have heard his name like that,” she said.

From St. Jude, and everything else, one thing that never interested in Marlo Thomas was married.

“What is it to pull the marriage? You know, I was totally against it. But never say never.”

Because “never” gone when Thomas was a guest on the show Phil Donahue in 1977. They loved each other. But we know about her vow against marriage, he had to spoil the courage to offer.

“It does not happen overnight. I was scared,” said Donahue. “I mean, five children. Come on, ‘Here, honey, that’s five children.”

She took in every case and, as she writes in her new book, she moved to Phil and his four teenage sons still live at home.

“What really got to me, however, was that they were asking me where their things were. Where are my shoes?” Phil would always ask. What is it about men? “They think that we women, radar attached to the uterus. And what really killed me was that I knew where they were. I knew where the shoes were Phil. I knew where all four boys. How did this happen? ”

But 30 years later, they are still happily sailing along. And with the launch of its new website MarloThomas.com, and the movie soon to be released, she has no plans to resign. In fact, he did not even ask how old she is.

Internet Explorer 9 hits 2 mn downloads

Wednesday, September 22, 2010 0 comments

Internet-Explorer-9Microsoft's latest browser Internet Explorer 9, which rolled out "beta" test version last week, touched over 2 million downloads within 48 hours of its launch, claims the company.

This is in sharp contrast to 1.3 million downloads Internet Explorer 8 Beta received over first 5 days when it was launched in August 2008.

Roger Capriotti of Microsoft wrote on the company's IE blog, "The initial reaction has been pretty overwhelming." Capriotti added, "We've seen 9 million visits and over 26 million page views to the Beauty of the Web site since its release last week, and our developer-focused IE Test Drive Site has had 4 million page views since last Wednesday."

Among key features, the new IE 9 offers support for HTML5, a catch phrase for an updated set of rules and specifications that website programmers use. HTML5, which is currently under development, will include video playback and other graphics-intensive features.

The new browser also uses the PC's graphics processing unit -- the same chips that make the images in elaborate video games run smoothly -- to make images, animations, movie clips and other visuals appear or play faster.

As for system requirements, the new browser works on PCs with Windows 7 or Vista, but not on PCs with the much more widely used Windows XP or on Macs.

IE9 is available in a public beta, or trial version, in more than 30 languages.

Samsung Galaxy Tab to cost £800

Saturday, September 18, 2010 0 comments

The Samsung P1000, also known as the Galaxy Tab, has a recommended retail price of £799.99, according to Amazon.samsung-galaxy-pad_1707153c

The online retailer is offering 15 per cent off, bringing the price down to £679.99, and says the Tab will be dispatched “within one to two months”.If the price listing is correct, it would mean that the Galaxy Tab would cost significantly more than its key rival, the iPad. Prices for Apple’s device start from £429.

Samsung is yet to make an official announcement about the price of the Tab, but it is hoped that some mobile network operators will choose to subsidise the cost of the 3G-enabled Tab in return for consumers taking out mobile data packages for the device.

The Galaxy Tab will also be available in the United States from the four major carriers – AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Samsung held a press conference yesterday to give more details about its tablet computer.

"The Galaxy Tab will redefine the tablet market," said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung’s telecoms division in the US. "We expect to be a major player in this market."

The Galaxy Tab has a 7in screen and runs Froyo, the most recent version ofGoogle’s Android operating system. It has Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity built in, and features two cameras, a three-megapixel lens on the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for making video calls.

One crucial differentiator between the iPad and Samsung’s device is that the Tab will play Adobe Flash content. Apple has famously jettisoned Flash in favour of rival standard HTML5, but it renders many web pages unreadable on Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

New designers blaze a trail at LFW opener

: New talent took centrestage at the opening show of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) today - from futuristic designs to collections inspired by human emotions, there were varied designs, approaches and colours put together by six young and upcoming designers.lfw
The show kickstarted with sisters Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar's western line collection in shades of grey and blue with a touch of red. Models were seen sporting construction headgear.
In the next segment, models walked the ramp in the soft, flowy drapes of Juilee Bendhkale, which were patterned geometrically for an urban look. While the collection boasted of fabrics like silk, georgettes, chiffons and raw silks, the colour palette ranged from blacks to greys with a hint of orange.
"My collection was inspired by the human emotion desire. I particularly used the silhouette of the 1980s with puffed sleeves to exaggerate the shapes of the human body," Bendhkale told media, describing her collection.
Fazal Mahmood and Akanksha Arora's designs focused on the Gen Next and the designs were purely futuristic with one of them even having lights on the jacket.
"We showcased a completely conceptualised line where we drew inspiration from transhumanism (the use of science and technology to improve human mental and physical characteristics and capacities). We have used a lot of velvets, polyester and organic fabrics and also recyclable materials like tyres, pipes and tetrapacks," said Arora.
Pragya and Megha Samor's bright and vibrant collection was dedicated to the media fraternity with an amalgamation of colours like black and white with various fluorescents, while Jelin George offered a total black outing. With mirror works on evening dresses and a little bit of shimmer thrown in, the collection was a blingy affair.
The show concluded with Ruchika Sachdev's biomechanics inspired collection.
"I showcased a futuristic collection, the reason why I used a lot of silver to get that fact across. I've tried to keep it as urban and international as possible with junky jewellery and hardware on clothes," said Sachdev.
On the whole, the first show of the first day show has impressed the fashionistas who are eagerly lookign forward to other shows.
Ace designer Wendell Rodrigues, who was a part of the jury that selected the new designers, was elated with the success of the show.

Twitter gets makeover, new features

Thursday, September 16, 2010 0 comments

Microblogging sensation Twitter, which is now signing up 370,000 new users daily on average, is redesigning its website to make it easier for its millions of users to navigate the service and discover new information.TwitterGrub
The four-year-old company, which this month reported more than 145 million users, announced new improvements, such as embedded YouTube videos and other content, which is featured in a new two-pane layout.
Twitter Chief Executive Evan Williams said the overhauled twitter.com features a completely new architecture, which is more responsive and user-friendly
"It makes it such a richer and faster experience," Williams said at a press conference to announce the new site. Twitter allows users to send 140-character text messages -- tweets -- to groups of followers. The company has quickly become one of the Web's most popular social networking services, along with Facebook and LinkedIn.
Williams said more than 90 million tweets are sent per day on average. He hopes the new site will improve discovery, making twitter.com more of an information resource.
"You don't need to tweet. Twitter can be great just as a way to get information," Williams said. Twitter is increasingly challenging established Web giants such as Yahoo Inc and Google Inc for consumers' online time.
Forrester analyst Augie Ray said the Twitter redesign should help improve engagement with users. "Twitter's new Web functionality is a significant evolution that promises to attract more visits to Twitter.com, improve Twitterers' interactions with content and each other, and ease adoption for Twitter newbies," Ray said in a blog post.
The new twitter.com will start rolling out to a small percentage of users currently, and will be rolled out incrementally on a global basis over the next several weeks.
The company is aiming to broaden Twitter's appeal. It is also rolling out a new advertising system, as it aims to transform it huge user base into a sustainable, revenue-generating business.
Williams said he hopes the redesign will help to better monetize the service. Twitter's backers include Spark Capital, Benchmark Capital, mutual fund giant T Rowe Price and private equity firm Insight Venture Partners.

Meanwhile, country star Taylor Swift sang a song about Kanye West. who invaded the stage at last year's awards and sabotaged her acceptance speech.

At last year's event, Kanye West stormed the stage after Taylor Swift won the best female video prize and said: "Taylor, I'm really happy for you and I'm gonna let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time" - referring to the R&B star's black and white dance video for Single Ladies.

Raveena poses for PETA to shun animal skins

Monday, September 13, 2010 0 comments

Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon is trying to create awareness about the sufferings of snakes and other animals whose skins are used to make accessories, by posing for an advertisement for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).raveena02
In the ad, the 35-year-old is wearing a slinky outfit that resembles snakeskin while lying in a pool of blood, with the words - Wearing Exotic Skins Kills. Leave Wildlife Out of Your Wardrobe - written below it.

"Wearing shoes, clothes and other accessories made out of exotic skin is about as cold-blooded as it gets," said Raveena in a statement released here Monday.

"These days, there's a wild kingdom of fake snake, mock crocodiles and python leather that pay tribute to the beauty of these animals without making them fashion victims."

The National Award winning actress wants consumers to know about the suffering that snakes, alligators and other animals endure before their skins are made into shoes, bags and other products.

"Snakes are commonly nailed to trees or posts and skinned alive. After animals' mutilated bodies are discarded, it can take hours for them to die. Alligators on factory farms are crammed into small spaces and then beaten to death with hammers or axes," said Raveena.

She has now joined the bandwagon of celebrities like John Abraham, Pamela Anderson, Sir Paul McCartney and Jackie Chan who have taken part in campaigns for PETA to save animals.

Google ‘Health Speaks’ for online medical info in Hindi

Tuesday, September 7, 2010 0 comments

Internet search giant Google is encouraging volunteers to translate health-related articles in Hindi under its initiative to boost the amount of online medical information in local languages.google-logo-mountainview-01

Google.org has introduced pilots for its initiative ’Health Speaks’ that aims to increase the online health information in Hindi, Arabic and Swahili.

The search giant said it has chosen hundreds of health articles, written in English, from Wikipedia for their translation. Volunteers who are bilingual in English and anyone of the vernaculars are being encouraged to translate the literatures with assistance from the Google Translator Toolkit.

Translators are also supposed to review the articles and make it locally relevant before publishing it on the corresponding local language Wikipedia site.

Pilot programmes are supported with a donation incentive, awarding local charities with funds based on the number of words volunteers translate, Google said in a statement.

For the first 60 days, Google will donate 3 US cents (about 45 paise) to the Public Health Foundation of India, New Delhi, for each English word translated in Hindi. The maximum donation would USD 50,000.

The Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 and the African Medical and Research Foundation would get the same amount for the pilots in Arabic and Swahili, respectively.

“Language should not be the barrier that denies millions of people worldwide the opportunity to improve their health with valuable health information,” Jennifer Haroon, Manager of Health Initiatives at Google.org, said.

In most parts of the world, quality information that would help people to improve their health is not available online in local languages. In 2004, Lancet -- a medical journal -- described the lack of access to health information as a “major barrier to knowledge-based healthcare in developing countries.”

The authors then noted “among currently available technologies, only the Internet has the potential to deliver universal access to up-to-date healthcare information.”

Currently, professional translation of high quality health content is expensive and there are difficulties in finding translators for some non-western languages

Williams, in a post on the Twitter blog late Thursday, also said that nearly 300,000 third-party applications have been developed around the service, which allows users to pepper one another with messages of 140 characters or less.
"These new services help people get the most out of Twitter, contributing to user growth and new business opportunities -- both of which are critical to the long-term viability of the ecosystem," Williams said.
The Twitter chief executive said the number of people using Twitter on mobile devices had jumped 62 percent since mid-April and 16 percent of new users start on mobile, up from five percent in April.
Forty-six percent of active Twitter users regularly use a mobile device, he said.
Twitter acquired a third-party mobile application called Tweetie in April and turned it into the official Twitter program for Apple's iPhone.
Applications also exist for using Twitter on Research in Motion's Blackberry and devices powered by Google's Android mobile operating system.
Williams also published figures on the top 10 applications people have used to access Twitter during the past 30 days.
Seventy-eight percent used the official Twitter.com website, 14 percent used Twitter's mobile website m.twitter.com, eight percent used SMS, eight percent used Twitter for iPhone and seven percent used Twitter for Blackberry.

Twitter said the numbers add up to more than 100 percent because people often use more than one application to access the service.

Samsung unveils iPad competitor Galaxy

Friday, September 3, 2010 0 comments

Samsung Electronics Co. unveiled a new tablet PC named Galaxy Tab as the latest device meant to rival Apple Inc.’s popular iPad.Thomas Richter, Head of Portfolio Management for Telecommunications Europe of Samsung presents the new Samsung Galaxy Tab

The device offers users “a new galaxy of possibilities” with features such as mobile video conferencing and a video chat function, Samsung Europe telecom executive Thomas Richter said Thursday at Berlin’s IFA consumer electronics fair.

The thin tablet device weighs 13.4 ounces (380 grams) and has a 7-inch (18-centimeter) touch screen, making it about three times that of an Apple iPhone, but roughly a third smaller than an iPad.

Richter said it comes with Google Inc.’s Android 2.2 operating system, which can run HTML5 and Adobe’s Flash Player - unlike the iPad.

The Galaxy will allow users to browse the web and check e-mail just as on a regular PC, Mr. Richter said.

“The Samsung Galaxy Tab has been designed to enable consumers to maximize their online experience wherever that may be,” the head of Samsung’s mobile communications business, J.K. Shin, said.

The price of the device will depend on telecommunications operators through which it will be available starting next month in Europe and later in fall in the U.S. and Asia, Samsung said.

The device supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G cell phone networks, making it a combination of smart phone and laptop. It “turns out to be a perfect speakerphone on the desk, or a mobile phone on the move via Bluetooth headset,” Samsung said.

The tablet PC also comes with two cameras, one 3-megabyte digital camera with a flash on the back of the device, and a second camera on the front for video conferences - a feature the iPad lacks, but other competitors such as Dell’s Streak tablet PC also offers.

Jobs also showed off a new iPod Shuffle for 49 dollars and a touchscreen version of the middle-range iPod Nano starting at 149 dollars.
The new iPod Touch costs 229 dollars for the eight-gigabyte model, 299 dollars for the 32GB model and 399 dollars for the 64GB version.
