The Top Videos on YouTube in 2007

Written by IT News on 7:25 AM

Served for your personal amusement By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor | softpedia.com

It’s not difficult to see why some people predicted that the end of the Internet will come via YouTube servers, the number of videos and even more, their size that will no longer suffer archiving and encryption are adding to infernal numbers for the bandwidth and the overall backbone of the World Wide Web.

Nevertheless, there are many videos that deserve to be
up there for everybody to see and laugh at. Yes, that’s the category I’ll be addressing today, entertainment. Some of the best received clips are about somebody naming herself Obama girl, another about a crazed Britney fan (you just knew it) and the third about a herd of buffaloes attacking a pride of lions. The last one is very interesting to watch, but it’s about violence and I’m not a big fan of it.

The other two, however, are fodder for any media cannon that might be brought up front. The Obama Girl video portrays a young singer that has the presidential candidate at heart and "battles" another singer dubbing herself Giuliani Girl. The song is catchy and the ladies are fine, break out the wine and start talking politics after watching it. Just don’t become violent, as many resort to it when the discussion is had.

Chris Crocker a.k.a. the Queen of Ghetto (he is a male… well… not adult) has posted a video response to the press critiques of Britney Spears performance at MTV’s VMA. It’s filled with heart and soul, filled with tears and pleads. I’ll embed a not so dramatic variant to it, just for your personal amusement. The Alvin the Chipmunk voice does wonders, I'll have you know so you should really watch it, it’s rich. It’s also the fourth most commented on video in YouTube’s history and the one that made Crocker an instant YouTube star.

Nokia Gaming Phone Has Been Revealed

Written by IT News on 7:51 PM

The registered patent looks much better than Sony's rumored PSP phone
By: Cosmin Vasile, Communications News Editor | softpedia.com

After so many rumors regarding a Sony Ericsson PSP phone, finally someone gives us an idea of how a gaming phone should look. The entire
mobile community awaits the so-called 'gaming phone', either from Sony Ericsson, Nokia or any other handset manufacturer. We already have camera phones, music phones, how long till a dedicated gaming phone will be out on the market?

Well, by the look of it, there's not much time left till we'll put our hands on one of these devices. Just recently it has been revealed that Nokia registered a strange patent that looks just like the above mentioned 'gaming phone'.

The released patent speaks about a 'handheld electronic device' comprising a housing and a retractable handle, the device being arranged to allow the handle to be retracted into the housing along a sliding axis to provide a retracted handle position and extended out of the housing along the sliding axis.

Moreover, Nokia's patent looks more like a portable gaming console with camera and phone capabilities. The slim and easy to carry form of the device suggests that it will be an all-in-one device that will definitely make dedicated devices like MP3 players, PSP's, mobile phones or cameras less desirable.

More excerpts from the patent: "... is a computer gaming console, input elements 121, 122 being provided for user input by the left hand of a user and input elements 123, 124 being provided for input by the right hand of user. The games are displayed on the display 110, but in other embodiments, the games can additionally or alternatively be provided for display on another electronic device associated with the device. In the present case, the device 100 also allows the user to make radiotelephone calls (e.g. using cellular telephone functionality), take pictures (camera on reverse of device 100 is not shown), and play recorded/streamed audio (e.g. music/speech etc)."

Sadly, after the announced delay of the N-Gage mobile gaming platform, we're rather pessimistic about a possible official announcement anytime soon. Still, the idea looks great, maybe even better than Sony's PSP phone, but I wonder how viable is it?

IM Infection Spotted in the Wild

Written by IT News on 7:40 PM

WORM_IRCBOT.ARB detected by Trend Micro
By: Bogdan Popa, Security and Search Engines Editor | softpedia.com

We've seen many of these before, but since it is a new infection, it may be a really threat for your computer. With a continuously growing up popularity, the instant messenger and chatting applications reach every single computer in the world, fact that makes the unpatched and unprotected ones fully vulnerable to the threat. Security vendor Trend Micro has spotted a new worm that spreads itself through instant messaging and chatting application: WORM_IRCBOT.ARB.

Your computer may get infected extremely easy because the worm can be deployed once
the user visits a malicious website equipped with the infection. In addition, WORM_IRCBOT.ARB can be installed by another malware, Trend Micro explained. As many other worms, this infection creates special registry entries in order to be sure it is executed every time the operating system is loaded. And when I say operating system, I'm referring to Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP and Server 2003.

And now, the juicy part. "It sends copies of itself to target recipients using certain instant messaging applications", Trend Micro added. This means the worm is able to spread itself by sending its files through instant messaging or chatting applications, where it may find some additional vulnerable computers. Since your contacts receive the file from you, a trusted source, they may download and install it which is at least dangerous if they're not protected.

And if that's not enough, listen to this: "it opens a random port to allow a remote user to connect to the affected system. Once a successful connection is established, the remote user executes commands on the affected system", the security company continued. In other words, the attacker is able to connect to your computer, execute commands and access the data. Scary...

There's not much to do in order to remain protected. All you need to do is to update your antivirus and be sure that the files you download or the websites you visit are clean and will not attempt to deploy any infection.

Quantum Dots to Bury Both Flash and DRAM

Written by IT News on 6:37 PM

The new technology is more flexible and can store data for longer periods of time
By: Bogdan Botezatu, Hardware Editor | softpedia.com

The flash storage has been one of the technologies that have undoubtedly changed the face of consumer electronics appliances. It can store a large amount of data on a tiny surface, at the cost of only a few milliwatts.

DRAM memory needs permanent refreshing to preserve its contents, but Flash storage can do without power for about ten years, and yet the data will still be there. However, Flash memory is handicapped by large access times. The ideal candidate for tomorrow's storage technology will act as fast as DRAM, while preserving the data for a long period of time, just like Flash memory.

German scientists have announced that they are working on a new storage technology, made of quantum dots. These dots are nothing more than an assembly of atoms, confined in a space so that the motion of electrons would be impossible. This assembly would act like a single atom, while its electronic properties could be modified at will, either by changing the size of the assembly, or by changing the atoms themselves.

The rough materials used for building quantum dots are silicon and germanium, as well as "element cocktails", such as gallium, indium, arsenide, aluminum, and antimony. These materials are alleged to have access time of around 10ns, with a refresh rate of about 0.7 Hz. This is just the beginning, as researchers estimate that some other combinations of materials will result in a storage time of about one million years.

The quantum dots - based memory is more flexible than Flash, since the latter uses the huge potential barrier created by a silicon oxide layer, that prevents electrons from tunneling it, in order to preserve the data. But, to delete and write a flash cell, electrons require an increased amount of energy, which would destroy the silicon layer over time.

If using quantum dots, the barrier can be kept at a lower level, since the atoms have tunable electrical properties. The German researchers have estimated that the barrier may be four times lower than the classical silicon dioxide. The new material is estimated to store data for about one million years, at an access time of only 10ns. If the quantum dots memory can be mass-produced, it will surely replace flash memory, RAM as well as hard drives.

New version of AutoRuns for Windows v9.0

Written by IT News on 1:14 AM

Now you can download the latest version of AutoRuns for Windows v9.0, a free Microsoft Sysinternals tool that diagnoses Windows boot-up problems.

The free tool displays applications and malware that quietly start up in the background during a computer's boot-up process, giving IT managers the option to disable certain applications or remove malware that is acting as an application, according to the company.

AutoRuns v9.0 includes several more autostart locations where applications or malware can lurk, including shell extensions, Windows Vista scheduled tasks and Windows Vista Sidebar gadgets. It also has more support for online search engines other than Internet Explorer.

The tool can be used by all versions of Windows operating systems, including Vista.

As more applications open during the boot-up process, the performance of the machine suffers, and malware can automatically infect the computer or network. Using the tool, IT managers not only see which applications are automatically starting up, but the order in which they open.

Windows operating systems come with a boot-up diagnostic tool called Microsoft System Configuration Utility, or MSConfig, but the AutoRuns tool provides IT managers with deeper diagnostic information.

One More Christmas Infection Exploiting Windows Vulnerabilities

Written by IT News on 5:48 PM

WORM_DLOADER.TBW spotted in the wild
By: Bogdan Popa, Security and Search Engines Editor | softpedia.com

In case you thought you're safe this Christmas because you have applied the latest definitions for your security software, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you're
not safe at all. And a recently-spotted worm comes to support this statement. WORM_DLOADER.TBW is a Windows infection discovered by security company Trend Micro, which affects most versions of the Microsoft operating system including 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP and Server 2003. What's worse is that the worm has a high distribution potential which underlines the fact that it can easily reach your computer, if you're one of the vulnerable guys.

In this case, 'vulnerable' doesn't refer to outdated antivirus or inexistent firewall. This time, it's all about a Windows vulnerability that may be exploited by the worm in order to get inside the system.

"This worm is a component of other malicious programs. It may be used by other malwares to perform its malicious routines. However, it requires other components in order to run properly. When executed together with other malware files, it takes advantage of the Server Service vulnerability to propagate across networks", Trend Micro wrote in the security notification published a few days ago.

The worm may be dropped on your system once you visit a malicious website equipped with the infection, or it can be included in other malware packages, the security vendor added.

The Windows vulnerability is pretty serious and can really represent a danger for your computer, according to an advisory released by Microsoft. "An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. We recommend that customers apply the update immediately", the Redmond-based firm wrote.

Happy New Infected Year!

Written by IT News on 4:46 AM

By: Bogdan Popa, Security and Search Engines Editor | softpedia.com

Christmas is only history now and we're all expecting the New Year celebrations. Hackers, attackers and scammers are also preparing for the new event, but, as usual, they like to do it in an unique way: by building Trojan horses, infections and other types of malware designed to be installed on people's computers.

A new worm has already been discovered by security vendor Trend Micro, after
malicious emails containing a link to a malicious page attempted to deploy an infected executable. The file is named "happy2008.exe" and tries to reach your computer through a website that reads the following message: "Your download should begin shortly. If your download does not start in approximately 15 seconds, you can click here to launch the download and then press Run. Enjoy!"

"(The affected IPs) look like a redirecting download site. But if you visit (them) with an outdated browser, you get automatically infected", Trend Micro Senior Threat Analyst, David Sancho, said according to a blog post on the company's website.

Trend Micro identified the infection as WORM_ZHELATI.AIS, a worm that targets most Windows versions including 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP and Server 2003. But, what's more important is that it has a high distribution potential and a high damage potential, which underlines the danger caused by the worm.

"This worm usually arrives via email. It can also be dropped by other malware. It spreads by sending email messages containing a link, which redirect users to a malicious Web site where a copy of itself can be downloaded", Trend Micro wrote in the description of the worm.

Just like usual, you're advised to avoid reading suspect messages arriving in your inbox and block attachments that may infect your computer. In addition, keep your antivirus up-to-date with the latest virus definitions, in order to detect the threats as soon as they occur.

I Have Just Won 800,000 Pounds

Written by IT News on 4:39 AM

By: Bogdan Popa, Security and Search Engines Editor | softpedia.com

Yep, you've heard it correctly, I have just won 800,000 pounds at the UK lottery. You're probably curious why I'm so bored and what's the reason for not being excited about the amazing prize. Well, because it is only a stupid SPAM message that came into my inbox! I've seen too many of these in the past, so there's not something new.

But as far I can see,
it may be a new spam campaign targeting the Gmail accounts, because the message came into my Google account and managed to reach the inbox. Titled "Winning Notification", the message sent from a Hotmail account has all the characteristics of a spam message.

First of all, I never play at lottery. And don't ask me why, because the best answer would be probably "just because...". So, I can't have won such a prize. Secondly, there are too many typos and grammar mistakes in the email body that made me laugh when I first read it.

"We are pleased to inform you of the release of 26th Novermber 2007. result of the Mulit National Internet Lottery Int.promotion programs conducted in united kingdom . Your name attached to the ticket number 033-20737-750 with serial number 033-05 drew the lucky number which consequently won lottery in the 2nd category", the first paragraph of the email reads. "You are therefore been approved for a lump sum of £800,000.00", it continues...

The interesting fact is that it also contains pictures with past winners of the lottery, which are attached at the end of the email. In addition, it comes with a scanned signature, probably as an attempt to trick me in believing the email is not a fake.

So, what do I have to do to claim the prize? "To begin your claim, please contact your claim agent FIRM :MR SHANAH OF SHANAH AGENCY & CONSULTING(PTY) UNITED KINGDOM TEL.NUMBER +44 7x3 1x89x4x7 ."

Google Listens to Its Users

When it comes to blogging, that is
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor | softpedia.com

In a continuous attempt to make its users happy, Google decided to step up its support response to those in dire need of assistance and began taking every service at a time to solve the most outstanding problems reported.

Today, it is the Official Blogger Buzz from Blogger reporting that some of the features that had been taken out with some of the updates and that were actually some
of the crowd’s favorites have been brought back for everybody to enjoy them. Furthermore, they have even apologized in a believable manner, which I particularly find so difficult to find nowadays, when you know that they are offering you their service for free and they know that you know it. Or, at least that’s the Mark Zuckenberg take on the whole "user is our master" situation that has been going around on the Internet, ever since its early days.

The first feature that has been brought back is the auto-linked URL that unregistered commenters had been robbed of, when giving feedback or just posting to somebody’s blog. This option was originally taken out, because of the risk that people could impersonate others and create a big confusion by that, to say the very least.

The second option was the Images in the Header page element that would no longer be cropped vertically, removed because of some bloggers that had uploaded oversized images. The reactions to this one were quite strong, comments like "you are now going to annoy 99% of bloggers who WANT the size to adjust to their image and don't want to have to edit their template every time they upload a new header image. Please put it back the way it was. You've fixed a problem when there wasn't a problem at all!! Now you have CREATED a problem!!!", being found all over the support forums.

Happy blogging for the Holidays from Google! You got your wishes come true.

Online Pr0n Bank

Written by IT News on 12:28 AM

It was all about a typo, By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor I softpedia.com

Typos are the source of many evil happenings all over the world, from wrong messages sent to wrong people, and continuously annoying people on the cell phone because you've remembered two numbers in the wrong order, up to changing the whole meaning of your essay’s catchphrase to make it be

the most obscene thing ever from a witty explanation of why people have all sorts of dreams. That actually happened, but I just don’t want to remember the whole story. The public humiliation still hurts.

The reason I've mentioned the obscene part is because it is in close connection to most of the typos that have a disastrous effect nowadays. You’d expect your average Joe Internet to misspell a word and then apologize for it, you’d even expect highly-educated people to make the occasional mistake when on the hurry. What you wouldn’t expect is that a mistake made by a person, who is paid and paid well in order to not let these things happen, is being made and not cared after immediately.

The online Egg bank was the one to deliver today’s pr0n content to innocent people that just wanted to check out its offer of one free month of DVD rentals, but instead were up against pictures of almost naked women that were stretching all over the place and, furthermore, were up against a search engine that had a "spank it" instead of a "search" button.

This happened before, but it was a result of hacking, not of typos. I don’t know what the employee doing the typing was thinking about or what sites he was visiting, but he spelled Mymoviesteam.com instead of MyMovieStReam.com. Unfortunately, it got taken care of, so you won’t be able to see this for yourself and you’ll just have to take my word for it.

Free Zebra scanner 2.0.2

Written by IT News on 9:21 AM

Zebra scanner is a simple AS Studio application to trace down trojans. A Trojan refers to a program that appears as something you may think is safe, but hidden inside is usually something harmful. The lure of Trojans is that you may download a game or a picture, thinking it's harmless, but once you double-click this file the virus gets to work.

Zebra scanner is intended to search for applications, hidden behind another extension than 'app' . It checks if any of the files in the selected folder(s) has either the real extension '.app' or the file type 'APPL'. In Mac OS >= 10.3 the program also checks if the item is considered an executable by the OS which can be activated by double-click or otherwise.

The program is meant to be a fast and easy way to retrieve trojan viruses, disguised as an image, MP3, movie, folder etc. thus avoiding that a hidden application can be double clicked by accident and do damage to your Computer. Zebra scanner can also examine classic data.

ZTC 8898, the Sony Ericsson & HTC Wannabe

Written by IT News on 9:29 PM

By: Florin Troaca, Communications News Editor | softpedia.com

Imitation (voluntarily or not) is not an uncommon thing in the mobile industry. There are, were and will always be cases of devices that resemble other devices.
If we only think about the iPhone and the army of handsets that tried to copy its look, we have enough material to study for a long, long time.

ZTC, the Chinese manufacturer, brings now a phone that wants to resemble not just one other brand, but other two. The handset, named ZTC 8898, is a dual-band GSM phone working on the 900 / 1800 Mhz network. When closed, it offers a pretty nice view, looking like a K-series phone from Sony Ericsson. The not so nice view comes when the device is open and reveals a HTC-like full QWERTY keyboard. Which wouldn't have been such a big problem if everything had looked as stylish as on the HTC handsets, but compared to them, the ZTC 8898 appears cheap and amateurish. The keyboard is weird, coming with Windows and Internet Explorer keys, despite the fact that the phone's interface doesn't look at all like a Windows one. Furthermore, the two speakers on the right and left side of the screen look like they belong to my grandmother's old radio – not a nice thing to see on a mobile device.

ZTC 8898 comes with two big displays, an external 2.5 inch one featuring touchscreen, and an internal 2.8 inch one. The latter is probably intended to be used mainly for games, since the phone has a built-in NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) Game Simulator and is said to support up to 4000 NES Games.


The phone has a fair dimension (108 × 51 × 18 millimeters) considering its big screens and the QWERTY keyboard, and also packs other features that are not bad: GPRS, dual-sim card slots, MP3 and MP4 player, Bluetooth, microSD support and a 1.3 Megapixel camera.

What's cool – and I mean it – about the phone is that it packs two 2200 mAh batteries which provide a talk-time of up to 500 minutes and an incredible stand-by time of up to 900 hours, meaning more than a whole month!

Although ZTC 8898 doesn't appear on the producer's official site, the phone can be bought from DealExtreme, an international online shopping center, for the price of 189 US Dollars. I say "good luck" to those who wish to try it.

eMailTrackerPro 2007 7.0h

Written by IT News on 7:22 PM

Email analysis tool that tracks Internet emails back to the sender
eMailTrackerPro helps identify the true source of emails to help track suspects, verify the sender of a message, trace and report email abusers. The trace analysis reports the sender's IP address, estimated location, network and domain information. eMailTrackerPro also helps uncover misdirection -- a technique often used to disguise the sender -- to expose the true origins of the email.

A plug-in for Microsoft Outlook will add a button to the Outlook toolbar for one-click e-mail tracing. For other email programs, the header information may be easily pasted
into eMailTrackerPro for quick analysis. A built-in location database tracks emails to a country or region of the world, WHOIS lookups provide abuse reporting information.

eMailTrackerPro Advanced Edition includes an online mail checker which allows you to view all your emails on the server before delivery to your computer. This is an excellent safety feature as it stops high risk and suspicious emails from reaching and infecting your computer.

Using this feature scans every email waiting for delivery and quickly identifies where they originated from and if they are misdirected (a common tactic used by abusers to make you think the email is from somewhere else). This saves you time and effort as it allows you to quickly identify and remove SPAM and infected emails safely before they can do any harm.

Requirements:
· 128Mb memory, 40Mb disk space, 1Ghz processor, Sun Java Runtime Environment (included with eMailTrackerPro) 1.4.2 or Microsoft JVM 1.1.4 build 3810

Limitations:
· 15 days trial.

Download Firefox 2.0 in Windows Vista without Touching IE7, or Any Other Browser

Written by IT News on 3:31 PM

By: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor | softpedia.com

Microsoft is still a long way away from a scenarios where it will have to unbundle Internet Explorer from the Windows operating system. But thanks to an antitrust complaint filled by Opera with the European Union Antitrust Commission, if the succession of events will lead to a similar result as the precedent delivered by the 2004 decision, against the Redmond company involving the removal of Windows Media Player from the
platform, Microsoft might just well have to offer Windows without IE. The Redmond company has already been forced by a 2004 decision of the EU antitrust regulators to sell Windows XP N and Windows Vista N editions for the European market without Windows Media Player.

Opera is accusing Microsoft of abusing its Windows monopoly by bundling its proprietary browser with the operating system and of limiting user choices. While it is obvious that Microsoft will fight a potential forced divorce between Internet Explorer and Windows, and that the removal of the browser component from the operating system won't happen over night, I am the adept of a "better prepared than sorry" strategy. In this context, there is a way to download and install Firefox on Windows Vista without touching Internet Explorer, or any other browser for that matter. All you need is a network connection.

"The ongoing issues and questions about Internet Explorer raised an interesting question: On Windows, if Internet Explorer doesn't work for some reason, how would you get a working web browser? It turns out the command line "ftp" tool (included with windows) could be used to get Firefox from an ftp mirror of the Mozilla software collection. Get to a command prompt ("Start", "Run" and type "command")", revealed William Stearns from ISC.

The Windows and "R" keys pressed concomitantly also open the Run dialog box. Users can alternatively enter "cmd" in the Search box under the Start menu, right click the selected result and select "Run as administrator". In "cmd" enter the following command without the quotes: "ftp ftp.osuosl.org". You will be asked for your user name, and just type "anonymous", and specify a password. Simply pressing Enter will deal with the password request, and you have logged in successfully. Now, type "cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/2.0.0.11/win32/en-US/" and hot Enter. Then, "mget *.exe" to access Firefox Setup 2.0.0.11.exe. After the download will be completed, write "Firefox Setup 2.0.0.11.exe", this time with the quotes to install the open source browser.

Three: Pay as you go!

Written by IT News on 2:47 PM

By: Andreea Dihel, Mobile Editor | softpedia.com


By now, there are not too many people unaware what Group 3 means. If there is someone, then find out that 3 is a brand used for nine mobile telecommunications networks in Europe, Asia and Australia.

The one holding the interests in these networks is Hutchison Whampoa. The networks offer "mobile multimedia" and also provide 3G technology, WCDMA, even if some of them are running on 2G networks.

With headquarters in Australia, Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong and Macau, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, 3 has 3G-license in Israel, but there the company works under the Orange brand.

The services offered by the firm and, also, its programs launched along the years are focusing on
Mobile TV and Skype services. Video calling and fast Internet access is also a thing that 3 supports and these are made via most of its handsets.

And now, 3 has made a new announcement: the company will offer mobile broadband on a "Pay As You Go" basis. With this new service people will be able to stay connected "on the go", renouncing at the minimum-term contract.

But things are not as easy as they seem. A customer can have his own PAYG USB Modem, if he'll pay a sum of 100 British pounds, approximately 200 US dollars. The USB modem comes in few colors, pink and black, besides the white standard version. If you don't like any of the colors, a new green version has just been released. Should you dislike the designs of the model, the deal that has been made between the 3 Group and Skins4Things will make your device cooler. You can choose from skins like leopard, polka dots or Union Jack, which are for now available.

But, the costs won't stop here. After paying this, you'll have to pay another 99.99 British pounds in order to purchase the Top-Up. The Top-Up can be converted to 10, 15 or 25 British pounds that will give you broadband add-on from 1Gb, 3Gb or 7Gb download limits, with an extra MBs that will be automatically charged with 1 pound.

Carbon, the New King in the Semiconductor Industry

Written by IT News on 5:45 PM

Silicon is likely to be kicked out of the team
By: Bogdan Botezatu, Hardware Editor | softpedia.com

Silicon is one of the oldest veterans in the IT industry. It has marched a long way but modern requirements tend to ask for more than it can offer. Just like the transistor, silicone is about to retire, or at least this is what Princeton University researchers say.

The Princeton University engineers have discovered a method that is alleged to substitute the old fashioned silicon with carbon. They say that the team found a way to build transistors on a graphene substrate a few atoms thick. This will bring unimagined benefits to the semiconductor industry, as the method offers switching speeds up to ten times higher than the conventional, silicon substrate.

The main obstacle was getting a wide enough graphene sheet that can be used with modern wafer technology. Initially they could achieve a sheet of couple square millimeters in extreme laboratory conditions while a processor asks for 300 to 500 millimeter layers. The researchers needed to weld more tiny patches to achieve the desired surface and then to overlay them on a traditional silicon substrate wherever logic circuits are required. The final result is a set of graphene tiles paving the substrate.

The process is extremely delicate and involves an enormous amount of work, but "electronic hole" measurements show that carbon circuits can perform ten times faster than silicon. This will have a huge impact on tomorrow's technology, such as cell phones and wireless devices: they will be smaller and will consume less power at an improved performance rate.

The researchers consider that the technology will become truly viable in a few years. Once demonstrated, the technology must be scaled to match larger applications and it is highly likely that entire CPUs can be achieved – units that will be ten times faster at the same power consumption as the ones we are using today.

The full credit for the achievement goes to professor of electrical engineering Stephen Chou and graduate student Xiaogan Liang at Princeton University. As for the funds, the university is financed by the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as other government institutions.

Where Is Microsoft Going with Internet Explorer 8?

Written by IT News on 3:52 PM

By: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor | softpedia.com

If you want to thank someone over at Microsoft over the breaking of the deafening silence that surrounded Internet Explorer 8 throughout 2007, that man is Chairman Bill Gates. At the beginning of December, Gates approached the subject of IE8 during a Mix-n-Mash event held at the Microsoft campus. The company's co-founder was apparently not aware of the secrecy veil covering IE8 and said that he would take up the matter with IE General Manager, Dean Hachamovitch. Immediately after the event, Hachamovitch came out and officially confirmed one aspect that was general knowledge, that the successor of IE7 was indeed IE8.

On December 12th, and then on December 19th, Microsoft hit two important milestones. First of all, the latest build of Internet Explorer 8 was successful in passing the "Acid2 Face"
standards test and, secondly, the company opened up a little on IE8. In an interview given over at Channel 9, Hachamovitch explained the silence that orbited IE8 for the past year, as the product was being developed. And it seems that the IE team displays with IE8 the same syndromes as the Windows division with the next versions and updates for the operating system, courtesy of Steven codename Translucency Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group.

"Well there's been a bunch of things since IE7 released. Windows Vista for one. Since Windows Vista there's been a lot of servicing, and securing, there's been Vista SP1, but most of all there's been Internet Explorer 8. A lot of work on IE8. And last week we hit an exciting milestone, that really concerns web developers. We should just be clear that IE8 is a strong release. There are a lot of things for a lot of people. I mean, there are a lot of things for end users, for web service providers, for developers for IT professionals. And there are a lot of things that we aren't going to be talking about right now, [with the exception] of the dev stuff", Hachamovitch stated.

With a beta due by mid 2008, and additional details promised for early March of the next year, Hachamovitch added that Microsoft will only talk about IE8 when theit browser will gain concrete contours. "For IE8, we want to communicate facts, not aspirations", he explained. According to Hachamovitch, Microsoft opening up to web developers is a move catalyzed by the fact that the level of standards and interoperability implementation in the code, as of the December internal build of IE8, will make it in the final version of the product. As far as the future of IE8 is concerned, expect nothing more than "definitive information" and "responsible disclosure" that will only set a manageable level of expectations. At this point in time, Microsoft expects IE8 to hit in late 2008, early 2009.

· Create, rename, delete directories
· Scroll through directory with large resized picture
· Drag pictures to correct directory
· View file list of directory while scrolling through it
· Drag files from the file list to the sorted directory
· Checkmark Move or copy the file
· Rename single files
· Prepend words to the names of a group of files
· Checkmark Especially useful for camera downloads. For example, prepend "soccer" to a group files creating soccerP00001.jpg from P00001.jpg
· Drag & Drop works with native file systems

Group Actions
· Rename camera files with thier date and time
· Checkmark Downloads from cameras are typically named something like P00001.jpg This will rename the file to something like 2003.12.27-18.09.16.jpg giving the exact date and time the picture was taken, formatted to sort correctly in file listings. Works by reading the time and date information recorded when the picture was taken.
· Dedup pictures within a directory or across directories
· Rename a group of files by appending a unique designator
· Checkmark Especially useful for internet downloads where the downloads can have the same names (for example 001.jpg). JIBS will generate a new unique name like 001zxy00001.jpg. The next 001.jpg you download would be renamed with a different number like 001zxy00045.jpg. So now when you drag and drop there won't be name clashes.

Requirements:
· Java 1.4.2 or later

What's New in This Release:
· The paths in JibsTree.txt are now relative so if you move directories around and then do and then set the tree to the new location, you get a fast load. Also helps in certain dual boot situations.
· You can now print and preview from Thumbnails.
· The main screen does not come up until the loading screen goes away. In Linux, the main screen was coming up over the loading screen hiding it completely and causing confusion. Also, the user was able to get to the main screen and work with it which caused some problems.
· Files with umlauts on non-German installs did not show. Now they show, but you can not do anything with the file (like see the image). This is because of the way Java operates and can not be fixed except by Sun.
· The counts for tree statistics were not always accruate. After doing a reload, they would often be negative or just show the count for the nodes reloaded. Feature is now node based and you can get statistics for each node in the tree now.
· Sometimes when creating a new directory, the new directory would be created on the file system, but not reflected in the tree. Also, creating a new subdirectory when the subdirectories were not showing would not expand to show the new subdirectory. Code has been added to force to new subdirectory to scroll into view.
· When in the Thumbnail view, doing an Undo did not refresh the screen so you could see the results of the undo. Now it does.
· The Enter key stopped working. Its function (do the same move on the current picture) has been restored.
· Converted to GPL 3.0.
