Men like Johnny Depp show that women place more emphasis on personality than good looks

Written by IT News on 12:19 AM

A trace of musk is often more than enough to give women their heads after passing a man on the street, even if the man in question is not necessarily a good idea to look for their standards. Perfume, a man is never missing piece in his "clothes", but only use them in accordance with his personality and not pure vanity, Moon Blood Good advocates Men's Health.

As for women, there are men who think that just because they dab in Cologne they purchased a new (and especially on how long enough to cause any UHS AHS and their buddies), but they are as irresistible as it is, Blood God says. Most women will probably remain impervious to its charm, because what they are looking for in a man is not vanity, but a strong personality - and nothing can do better than a well-chosen perfume, with much common sense.

"I love how no one can smell the same way as another, everyone is an original combination of a natural body odor, Cologne, deodorant, with pheromones sprinkled on top. This is a shortcut to the heart. When I smell certain Cologne too, it brings me back to a man or a date or love. It helps if he is not obsessed with beauty salons. Johnny Depp embodies the golden mean to see the fantastic and looks like he does not [care] if it looks good or not. There is no greater off than vanity. Most women do not want to hang with a man who talks for hours on his own clock”. Explain the publisher.

Finding the balance to be provided, even if they do not look squeaky clean is a good Blood note back is to do things naturally. In this sense, many a man fell into serious style icon cages, where they have tried to mimic the appearance of bad boys like Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell, but looking over done and exaggerate. The same is true of perfume and the scent is one that suits each boy's personality, not something he chooses, because he wants to ladies swoon or jealous friends can afford to, the editor adds.

In the end Blood God argue, to choose a perfume as a personal thing as to find a girlfriend, because the smell is 100 percent agree with the boy. "The Allure regions of origin in him," says the publisher - but a way, all men have to wear perfume without a trace of doubt.

Accidently limited USB access on Vista SP2

Written by IT News on 10:47 PM

Microsoft has confirmed a problem with the USB 2.0 devices to stop working intermittently when connected to computers with Windows Vista Service Pack 2. Although it is possible to confirm that some users really have a problem with the latest service pack for Vista, the Redmond Company has so far failed to find the cause of the problems. In this respect, the software giant stated that only scenarios with USB 2.0 Bluetooth devices no longer work intermittently on Vista SP2 machines studied and that information would be disclosed when it becomes available.

"This problem may occur when a Bluetooth dongle is connected to a USB 2.0 hub. There are limited USB ports found on some chipsets. Therefore, the manufacturers sometimes build internal USB 2.0 hub on their computer. If a Bluetooth - dongle is connected to a USB 2.0 hub, Bluetooth device may stop working temporarily, "Microsoft explained.

Since the problem in research, Redmond Company does not have an update to resolve or even a hotfix for this problem. All software giant is two temporary solutions are designed to restore functionality. "Portable computer users - if your laptop has a Bluetooth switch, use Bluetooth, turn on and turn off the Bluetooth radio. Desktop users - disconnect and reconnect the Bluetooth dongle," Microsoft stated.

If you want to change and then the Bluetooth radio in Windows Vista SP2 users should get to Device Manager. To do this, they have in the Device Manager in the search box in the Start menu. After the Device Manager is launched users must right-click the Bluetooth radio, and select Disable. Following this is disabled, right-click the user to reactivate the Bluetooth radio.

Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 to manufacturing by the end of April 2009. But the actual bits are not available for general download. The Redmond company point to the deadline was scheduled for the next few weeks.

Google reveals new logos

Written by IT News on 10:35 PM

Google has unveiled its new corporate identity for most of their products. The emphasis is on consistency and all the new logos are very similar, with the Google logo, followed by the product's name in blue letters. The Mountain View-based company hopes that this will be simpler and clearer for the user to identify their products. "We hope that this design and fresh appearance and improve usability on our sites."

The logos are accompanied by a change in the design, so now they all look the same and have the same size where they can be placed on the site. "As logos shown in many different locations and sizes of our websites, our designs are standardized to be the same size and color where they appear. It should be easier for you to find out which side you're on and navigate to the location where you want to go. They are also all of our international domains, which is especially useful for people moving from right to left languages as Arabic and Hebrew. “

The new style comes after Google said it would remove the beta tag on some of their services, and logos, particularly those aimed at business customers. The company takes the beta tag and more than half of its products are still in beta phase. Whereas Gmail, for example, 5 years ago and now has almost 150 million users worldwide, it seems that the beta tag is maybe a bit of a stretch.

With all the Google Chrome web browser beta is removed from only a few months after it was released, with some users believe that in view of the product in the overall quality, this step was a bit premature. The new logo is just in time for some of the products to the loss of beta status and should meet most of them in the coming weeks.

Written by IT News on 8:58 PM

While Solid State Drives recently launched a significantly higher performance compared to traditional hard drives, the degree of market adoption is still very low. This is due to any reason that SSDs are still relatively invaluable in contrast to traditional hard drives. But Kingston Technology, which has its premiere on the market for SSDs, a plan for Solid State Drives attractive to users worldwide. The company intends to sell its line of SSDNow M-series run as part of a specially built beam.

As you may already know, Kingston decided to SSD on the bandwagon with the launch of its SSDNow series of Flash-based devices, which basically rebranded versions of Intel's high-performance x18-M and X25-M series SSDs to offer one of the highest performances for the traditional market. Unfortunately, even Intel's disks are not all that affordable for PC users worldwide, making Kingston SSDs are even less affordable.

The company has a plan to the effects of higher prices for customers with a package combining SSDs with a software clone data on a hard drive to speed SSD. The beam is designed to draw attention to the end user, which adds value to high-performance storage products.

"This all-in-one package is the perfect solution for enterprise companies, corporate end-users and consumers to make SSD technology in existing systems," said Ariel Perez, SSD manager, Kingston.

Troj/JSRedir-R is the most widespread infection on the Web

Written by IT News on 4:07 AM

Malware analysts security vendor Sophos warns that the number of pages that are infected with the script Gumblar malcious recently sky-rocketed, making the operation at the top of the list of online threats. The effects of the previous record year SETTER Mal / iframe F now dwarfs in comparison.

According to Sophos, Troj / JSRedir-R, also known as Gumblar act mala fide domain since it points to an aggregate amount of not less than 42% of all infections on the web today. Mal / iframe F occupied second place, the number of infections is six times lower, accounting for only 7%.

"Usually JSRedir-R found on legitimate websites, hidden behind the distorted JavaScript, loading malicious content of third party sites without the user knowing. In accordance with garbled script attempts to download dangerous code from a place called" Graham Cluley, Sophos' senior technology consultant explains.

The confusion that Gumblar method is relatively simple and involves replacing the characters with their hexadecimal value, eg "20%" instead of "empty space", and then change the% with a random character. JavaScript code contains a function to replace the purposes restores% random character.

There are many variations of this script in the game and they are usually just before the "body" tag in HTML documents compromised. They are all the query words who blacklisted from Google for further malicious scripts. "In contrast to the last iframe exploit, where malicious code was injected only files with the common filename (eg index.html, index.php, etc.) this gumblar script injected into each web page," the unmasking of parasites blog warns.

Since the script is available on the websites operated by a diversity of PHP applications cannot be bound to a particular vulnerability. Instead compromised FTP evidence on the point of entry. Paul BACC, virus researcher at Sophos, attributes of infections to PHPMod-A Trojan. The load is also said to change the permissions on different directories on the Web and drop an image.php file in the "images" folder.

What is also interesting is that the operation of infecting the different file types to another code. This means that the code is inserted in. Js files differ from one inserted. Php. This is of course necessary for the malicious code to be performed, but the fact that it has more than goals. HTML files make the threat much more dangerous and more difficult to clean.

If you have reason to believe that your site is affected by this threat, ensure that your computer is clean of malware, change the password for your FTP and upload it again to the site for a clean backup.

Half a glass of wine per day may prolong your life by about five years

Written by IT News on 3:58 AM

It is well known that drinking wine can benefit your health, but his long-term effects on the human body have never been analyzed in such a large scale. In a study of 40 years, between 1960 and 2000, Dutch researchers monitored the life and drinking habits of more than 1373 randomly selected men, with regular check-ups once or more per year. The long-term study was to determine the exact relationship between cardiovascular health and people in the overall risk of dying of conditions.

In a scientific study published ahead of print in the latest issue of the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, the authors say that the analysis of results showed that drinking just half a glass of wine per day can be very beneficial for women as they could live on average five years longer than those who do not drink wine per day. But they warn, the effect does not stack up, which means that if you drink one or two glasses a day, they will not live ten to 20 years. In fact, it is very likely that they will die sooner, because of alcohol-related conditions.

During 40 years of monitoring, researchers looked at how much alcohol the men drank, the type of beverage, but also how often they did. Their main aim was to determine the drinking habit was worse, and it left the smallest "footprint" on the body. The study also aims to determine which type of alcohol led to the development of cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease, and if this can be prevented, PhysOrg reports.

More than 600 deceased men to cardiovascular disease in 40 years, about half of the total number of 1130 deaths. From 1960 to 2000, the proportion of men who drank alcohol almost doubled, from 45 to 86, a phenomenon that is immediately associated with an increase in the number of deaths in drink-related diseases. Although only two percent of participants drank wine at the beginning of the study, more than 44 percent did so in 2000. The conclusion of the study was that moderate alcohol consumption of up to 20 grams per day can increase life expectancy by at least two years.

Those who do not drink at all had a lower life expectancy than moderate drinkers, or on leave, while those who consumed more than 20 grams of alcohol per day had a life, it was a little lower than in moderate drinkers. In addition, they are only in small quantities of wine, not beer or spirits, lived on average five years longer than those who drank nothing. They lived 2.5 years longer than those who consumed beer and spirits.

Potassium, calcium and minerals in people who consume large quantities of colas are falling over the years, with devastating consequences, new evidence. In a study published in the June issue of International Journal of Clinical Practice, experts from the University of Ioannina, Greece, warns that such large amounts of cola into the human body causing rapid of demineralized bone and teeth, but also as a sharp drop in potassium levels. When the last event, starting to lose muscle mass and may weaken to complete paralysis. The good news is that the effects can be reversed by stopping the cola and the administration of potassium.

"We use more soft drinks than ever, the location and number of health problems has been identified, including dental problems, demineralized bone and development of the metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Evidence suggests that excessive consumption of cola may also cause hypokalaemia, which reduces blood potassium as a negative effect on muscles vital functions "UI Department of Internal Medicine expert, Dr. Moses Elisaf declared.

For their research, researhers analyzed a number of case studies where people drank two to nine liters of cola drinks each day. Two pregnant women in the hospital with a low potassium levels were also examined in their research.

"The individual role of each of these components [glucose, fructose and caffeine] in the pathophysiology of coke-induced hypokalaemia is not fixed and may vary between patients. But in most cases we have for our review, caffeine poisoning was supposed to play the principal role. This was confirmed by case studies focusing on other products with high levels of caffeine but not glucose or fructose. Despite this, caffeine-free cola products may also cause hypokalaemia because fructose content they contain can cause diarrhea, "Dr. Elisaf added.

"Although most patients recover when they stop drinking cola and potassium supplements, cola-induced chronic hypokalaemia may be more susceptible to potentially fatal complications, such as an irregular heartbeat. In addition, excessive use of some form of cola can lead to a series of health problems such as fatigue, reduced productivity and muscular symptoms vary from mild weakness to profound paralysis. We believe that further research is needed to determine how much is too much in terms of the daily consumption of cola, UI expert shared.

"Cola-drinks should be added to the physician of a checklist of drugs and substances which may cause hypokalaemia. And soft drinks industry needs to promote a safe and moderate use of its products for all age groups reduce portion sizes and listen to the growing demand for healthier drinks Ohio-based Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center expert Dr. Clifford Packer, who responded to the new study, localized.

Written by IT News on 3:57 AM

They wonder if social media never understand surprise even the most skeptical of us. In a recent example, a man has helped to deliver a baby in the world with an instructional video online, on the famous video-sharing website YouTube. A British engineer from Redruth, Cornwall, and son spent his childhood in the world on his own after learning how to do it from a simple video uploaded on YouTube. While his wife spent much time at work, an ambulance could not reach its place in time, so people had to improvise and solve the situation as best they could.

Marc Stephens, the man in question, felt the need to see some instructional videos on to his wife, Jo, began to feel that it was time for the birth. The contractions increased in number with every minute, and the engineer just sit and started to look at some videos on how to deal with such situations.

"I googled how a baby, saw a couple of videos and seen swotted up. The footage gave me peace of mind. I think I would have put up, but look at the videos made it much easier," the man told the BBC.

"I woke up and realized that I had contractions every five minutes. Marc, I wake up and we called the midwife, but they were all so busy that they could not get around our house and told us to call an ambulance. But before they got it all started, "Mrs. Stephens, who had planned a home birth all the time, although not as suddenly and abruptly broken.”

"This is our fourth child today and our first, I have most of the time my wife's head, now I am not afraid to go to the business end.

College students who use Facebook tend to have lower grades and spend less time studying than non-users

Written by IT News on 3:52 AM

Although the link between the use of social media and low grades in school or college has not been done, researchers conducting a new study on social media cannot fail to notice that students who are most free time on Facebook tends to have the lowest rating of all persons were examined. The researchers is responsible for the research stresses that an active role in social media traffic does not mean that these students studied less, or had a lower than average intellect. It simply means that these correlations should be examined more thoroughly.

Ohio State University education researcher Aryn Karpinski told Live Science that students in the survey, which was highly active on Facebook farm a GPA of about 3.0 to 3.5, unlike young people who reported little or no social media activities. Their GPA levels in the category 3.5 to 4.0. Karpinski revealed that these links do not imply causality in the sense that there may be other factors at stake, what drove these students have lower grades.

The expert also noted that Facebook users spent between 1 and 5 hours per week studying or otherwise get ready for school, while non-users have a much greater interest in their training, studies between 11 and 15 hours per week , and sometimes even more. Karpinski also said that these results do not necessarily mean that social media users were less interested in school. These children have more time to non-learning, extra-activities such as music, or work, and not necessarily on Facebook.

Moreover, how much time devoted to learning and reading also depends on the student's personality. There are those young people who study all day just because of that, or who are really interested in the subject they taught in schools and colleges. On the other hand, others simply meet the minimum requirements to remain in school, while devoting their time to their hobbies, or just do things that are not related to their education.

Karpinski research will be presented April 16, at the annual meeting of the American Education Research Association, and contains information about how students react when you see the questions on the social media behavior. "They are very territorial about Facebook," the researcher shared, underlines the fact that they tried to introduce a bias, either positive or negative, in the questionnaires.

Internet traffic in Sweden has dropped by more than 33 yesterday, as new laws give copyright holders the right to force ISPs to supply them with their

Written by IT News on 3:48 AM

The European Union Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive (IPRED) is the main basis for Sweden new IPRED Local Law, which says that ISPs can be forced to the copyright holders of personal data about their customers. On April 2, when the measure is officially in force, monitoring stations said that traffic in and out of the country declined from 120 Gbps to less than 80 Gbps. Statistically, this is a reduction of 33 percent, a drastic one for a country of over 9 million inhabitants.

It is estimated that about 8 percent of the population uses peer-to-peer (P2P) sites in the country, so it would stand to reason that the drastic reduction of traffic yesterday was caused by people who fear for their personal information reaches the hands of copyright holders, as could then prosecute them in court.

"Today is a very drastic reduction of traffic. But the experience of other countries shows that file sharing drops a day for a team is on, it begins to climb again. One of the reasons is that a few people weeks to find out how their security so that they can share files anonymously, "Vice-President of the Swedish Pirate Party, Christian Engström, told the BBC.

"We estimate that there are two million file sharing [computers] in Sweden, so even if they are prosecuted 1000 people for an example of them, a single user is still a very small risk," he said, despite the risk that caught the increased, there was not much to worry about them as P2P sharing.

"Before April 1, the only thing we can do about illegal file sharing has to refer to the police, who are reluctant to take. Now we're ready to go to court to force ISPs to information for users of an IP address. In two weeks, we know exactly who owns the IP. Since we cannot do something, ask him to stop, or sue him for damages. We will not do this for small offenders, it is only for the big fish, "President of the Swedish Publishers 'Association, Kjell Bohlund added the BBC.

There are other aspects of the legislation to consider, including the fact that privacy is not violated only by the police, but also by private companies. There is no telling what they would do with the data collected with the warrants that they are judges.

"The handling of the illegal file sharing is a task for the police. It is their job to enforce the law. Now we have private companies the right to go after our people. It is not how western democracies work. In one study, it’s about 80% of those who believed that we should not go for file-sharers. But ask them how they feel about taking money from the pockets of musicians, writers and artists and that number drops by a large amount. Ultimately, we the people the idea of sharing files," Engström closed.

Stars are also swapped on P2P sites more than obscure bands

Written by IT News on 3:42 AM

According to a new series of studies, it seems that artists, musicians and movie stars, currently working with the impressive legal battles with peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing websites, in fact, most required their popularity on these sites. Teenagers who share music and movies with each other, even if they are infringing the copyright of the large companies, in fact, make the most of the audience to participate in concerts and other shows in their town.

A study of the PRS for Music research group has found the most downloaded songs on P2P sites are the same as those given in the upper corner of the international charts. Conversely, as far as new bands go, this type of site is not directly related to success or failure of these groups, and has not been able to help them find or develop a larger audience. The P2P community has launched one of the most reliable sources to find and share music, and the new study compared to the radio in that respect.

In recent years, newspapers and radio has been a sharp drop in popularity due to the fact that most of its users have moved to the network. As a result, they go through a decline in sales, which also accelerated by the fact that the Internet creates new ways in which music is marketed and sold. An important role in this play is a very wide range of music that can be streamed live or downloaded from the network, not necessarily from P2P sites.

"A large proportion of turnover (sales or swaps) are concentrated in a small proportion of the available tracks. With regard to a number of geographical differences, in many music charts from licensed and unlicensed places are very similar," the authors of the new study said. "If a seller to sell, it can never be bought, but if the press swaps offer at least one person will take," she added, explaining that the music could turn its attention to smaller bands, with a post, rather than a few well-known acts, BBC News reports.

Next Giant Leap is the mysterious team in Google's Lunar X Prize competition

Written by IT News on 3:30 AM

Google Lunar X Prize competition, which was founded last year, seems to be a great attraction for those groups who are interested in winning $20 million first prize, or at least in second place, which would give them $ 5 million in cash. There are also additional prizes available, with a value of $ 5 million. Following the recent application of the two teams on Tuesday, Europeans from Euro Luna with his mobile phone on wheels "and China-based Selene with a four-LuRoCa 1 rocket car, a mystery now revealed his identity today.

The number of teams in the league now has 16, with a mystery team to the fifth race at the moment. Now, a public statement at a press conference held at NASA's Ames Research Center lift the veil of its name and structure, and we discovered that the group's name reflects its goal. It is called the Next Giant Leap, and is composed of and supported by name shake morale of its competitors.

"Our first year was a good way to recruit the best possible team members and build strong work necessary to achieve our objectives," the entrepreneur Michael Joyce, who founded the group in November 2007, shared in a statement. "With world class team we have assembled, we are ready to take the next big leap forward to win the Google X Prize and established NGL Monday mobile services as a commercial enterprise."

One of the team members, consultants and partners are big names, such as persons from the Department of Aeronautics and ASTRONAUTICS at MIT, NGL main academic partners, including Jeff Hoffman, a shuttle astronaut five times and Professor David Miller, head of the Space Systems Laboratory.

Microsat Systems, Inc. is known for small spacecraft, innovation as the leading systems integrator. Draper Laboratory, the space navigation and control systems for the space program to support the Apollo, space shuttle and ISS will ensure a safe landing in the team unit. Aurora Flight Sciences, specializes in unmanned aircraft and manned space station hardware will also offer its expertise, while the Busek Co. Inc. will demonstrate their skills in advanced space propulsion, and mainly in the electrical system.

"We are happy to go public as we believe they will be a strong competitor with experienced players, a strong academic partners and a host of innovative, small space," says Peter H. Diamandis, X PRIZE Foundation chairman and CEO.

Increased solar activity is not responsible for global warming, new study proves

Written by IT News on 3:47 AM

Critics who say that global warming is not man has just lost one of its "strong" arguments recently in a new study has finally settled once and for all that Sunday does not matter to the climate change we are now beginning to experience. The star has any influence on the ice sheets, and does not lead to glaciers around the world to melt, "says the report. Human activity is the main factor leading to global warming, especially billion tonnes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that we emit into the atmosphere per year. Those who say otherwise have no scientific support for their claims.

Some scientists have argued that changes in the sun go through at this point, one of the factors that cause global warming. But a group of experts from Carnegie Mellon University and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, has recently developed a new model, where the controversial theory to the test. The hypothesis is widely used by oil company lobbyists and other individuals, maintaining the scientific fact that global warming caused by greenhouse gases.

They say that more solar activity produces more solar radiation, which in turn eliminate more clouds in the atmosphere. As a direct result, more sunlight falls on the surface of the earth and the heat of the planet. Strangely enough, their explanation of global warming as greenhouse gases, droughts, floods and so on. Details of the latest model are published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, and as specified in the May 1 issue of the journal Science.

"So far, proponents of this hypothesis could be argued that the sun can cause global warming, because nobody had a computer to really test the claims. The basic problem with the hypothesis that solar variations probably change the new particle accelerator formation rates by less than 30 percent of the atmosphere. These particles are very small and need to grow before they can affect the clouds. Most do not survive, said Peter Adams. He is a Carnegie Mellon Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and also one of the leading developers of the new model, Science Daily reports.

"No simulation of something as complex as the atmosphere will be perfect. Supporters of the cosmic ray hypothesis are likely to try to challenge these results, but the effect is so weak in our model, it is difficult for us to change this basic result" Adams added. Some people try every detail of a sound scientific research, only to say that something else is causing global warming. The interests behind them are not difficult to discern.

This feature is activated on a number of Intel chips, but a large part of the computers on the market today will not be able to use the infamous Windows XP in Windows, "said Ed Bott in a recent article on Microsoft's Report section.

There is a whole list of processors that will be the next Windows XP mode for Windows 7, a list that is supplemented with Intel processors that do not have Intel VT technology is enabled. Fortunately, most of AMD phenomena, phenomena II, Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2 chips in the F and G families with AMD-V technology, which essentially represents AMD support for virtualization.

According to its Intel Virtualization Technology was introduced in 2005 and can be in more than 100 million chips. "Windows XP-mode is designed for business customers. It is available in medium to larger versions of Windows 7 and the hardware is supported by many Intel processors." The chip maker said in a statement. The company continues by explaining the obvious, "VPRO technology Intel computers must have an Intel VT can be CPU and Intel VT is the BIOS. They are the best platforms for testing and deploying Microsoft Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP-state."

Besides Intel VT technology, users will also have a BIOS that can be Intel's virtualization technology, which the processor can provide them with this feature.

The card has a massive dual-core cooling solution and six pin and eight pin power connectors. Compared with the reference card, the Radeon HD 4890 Atomic edition has the further eight pins, replacing the six-pin connector on the standard model. Using Sapphire's Vapor-X cooling technology, the Atomic card promises to deliver the performance you expect from AMD's fastest single-GPU card on the market.

Unfortunately the map is not official and Sapphire continues to communicate it to the market. But if you think a reference Radeon HD4890 has a starting price point of U.S. $ 235, you can expect something like U.S. $270 - U.S. $300.

A grid computer looks something like this, except the computers are spread in rooms around the world

Written by IT News on 12:16 AM

There are a number of areas of investigation in which amounts of data to be analyzed is so extensive that it would be a decades shuffle through or combine them with conventional computers and scientific methods. A possible solution to this problem would be for the use of very expensive super-computer networks, which can rent out their work for different teams. But the best way, some scientists say, is that the average computer user in the lease at least part of their computers' processing power on a computer network, which consists of millions of ordinary machines, which at the same time.

The network can be used for a wide range of possible applications, ranging from modeling of the formation of the universe and galactic collisions to find a cure for dengue fever and the discovery of extraterrestrial life. By itself, each of these studies would absorb enormous amounts of work and the ridiculously high amount of computer resources. But by splitting the work between the many small users, this problem can be solved. In principle, experts say, more computers, the better. More processors can be used to either find work as quickly as possible, or analyze large amounts of information than first planned.

"The results will be shared by researchers who are interested in the development of drugs against the disease [such as dengue fever]. Actually, if you download the program from real volunteer company, then it is very safe. On the other hand, if the user has a hacker, they can to ensure that data which they work. But the chances are remote, for most often are shared, so that even a real hacker could obtain only a small amount of data. He could not cope with big picture, "Taipei-based Research Academia sinica expert Simon Lin told BBC World Service's Digital Planet.

He added that "costs [in relation to this type of research] are much lower. And secondly, we see the strategic importance of the Asian population in scientific cooperation. This is something they are less known. I think this is part of a very long-term displacement or transformation. Ultimately, science in the 21st century will be performed in a different way. This major change in the Internet and digital technology for us, but the scientific process has not really changed much and volunteer computing is one of the possible directions that can change the way we conduct scientific research. “

"Well, there is an altruistic imperative, you can actually feel good. You will contribute to scientific research and the search for UFOs or perhaps even something to cure cancer. Many of these systems now offer a points system where you may be able to submit experiments or things you want to research the system and then you built up enough points in the system, you just made yourself. This is an appeal to a large part of the time for academic researchers, but you can see in the future that there is a time when people have access to grid computing for personal projects, technology blog Tech Crunch Europe Editor Mike Butcher concluded.

Radeon HD 4770 gets benchmarked and highly appreciated

Written by IT News on 4:26 AM

Earlier today, AMD officially announced its newest addition to the Radeon HD 4000-series arrangement, therefore, the introduction of the world's first 40nm desktop graphics card. Copying, Radeon HD 4770, the new solution is designed for computer users with a choice for an affordable graphics accelerator that can deliver results of the latest applications to run smoothly. After much anticipation, primarily because of the leaked information on the Internet before release, the Radeon HD 4770 seems to have potential for a successful Radeon card, at least according to the existing benchmarks and reviews.

Like most releases in the IT industry, the official launch of the new AMD Radeon card reviews all over the world to publish the results on benchmarks for the new product. This is the new Radeon, which seems to have managed to impress all, thanks to the level of performance and its market position. There is a general belief, according to most reviews that have just been published; the Radeon HD 4770 is a good performance / price ratio, with the chance to one of the most popular cards in its market segment.

Boys Top Hot Hardware decided that the map was nice in view of the low power consumption, support for DirectX 10.1, smaller PCBs, quiet cooler and competitive pricing. Toms Hardware AMD welcomes the release, and said, "at $ 99 is Radeon HD 4770 is a winner." Legion Hardware is also impressed with the new card, which apparently exceeded their expectations. PC Perspective also recommends it for its performance for the price package. Scholars of the Guru 3D applaud card overclocking potential, the Radeon HD4770 a possible solution for a high-performance tool, when used in a CrossFireX system.

There is a downside to the introduction of AMD's first 40nm desktop GPU which, paradoxically, in pricing. Although AMD has announced the card for U.S. $ 99, current street prices of U.S. $ 109, depending on the listing on Newegg. But after a mail in rebate, the price drops to the specified value, but it is quite uncomfortable for some users. But the general feeling of the map is that AMD has been the introduction of a successful product for its price.
