@Cloud Computing

As a technology-thinker, I often find myself thinking about the major ongoings in IT – those which will influence the core of our lives. I recently met with a spectacular newspaper-article on the Cloud Computing and that drove me to write this up. The Cloud is a warmly welcomed trend, which performs all the works of a computer system (like word-processing, programming, gaming, drawing etc.) online on the internet, via a range of devices like desktop, laptop, netbook, tablet, smartphone etc.

Just have a look how the logic of cloud is joining internet with every device and every task:

The logical diagram of cloud computingHere is a text that will help everyone understand the cloud under the following headings:

» The fence between online and offline is now fading away…
» It is hard to search the drives for a file and easy to download it again from Google…
» Software as a Service (SaaS)…
» An interesting question…

Techknowlogy For Life

Today I saw a man, who looked like involved in some official business, carrying a bluetooth device and probably a phone in the pocket. I thought about him for a minute and concluded that the person stores all his works in the office PC. Obviously, no paper-bunch can do the work so organizingly. He, therefore, enjoys the availability of pin-point data at the tap of a key (or, perhaps by just saying the file name!) and also the high computational powers and accuracy of the machine.

But then, there exists a dark side. What if his rival manages to lay hands on his office PC, perhaps when he’s out? Even if the system is password-protected, or endowed with any such dream-securities, he can break in with some tact and make a blast… Not that hard task.
Or, if our person is very unlucky, he may get a simple trojan to ruin it all.

The above possibilities connote all the aspects of present technology – It is all the good, the bad and the ugly. More

GodMode in Windows

Want to get all control of your Windows OS at one place? It is really amazing and convenient to find every setting, tool, option etc. at your hands by a simple trick, which I call ‘GodMode’.
The given trick works on Windows Vista and 7… hopefully will also work smooth in Windows 8. With this, you can get every Windows option present all over at a single place. You become somewhat ‘God’ of your Operating System.

Here are the simple steps :

Create a New Folder.
Rename the folder carefully to GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and save.
(However, the name “GodMode” can be any other name also, but the text after it is to be exactly same.)
You’ll see the folder icon changes automatically.
Congratulations, the folder has changed into a magic box! Open it and work with the GodMode customization.

Explanation :
The ‘GodMode’ is actually a Windows area called ‘All Tasks’. It holds all Control Panel options. The above trick makes it too much easy to find the settings quickly.
Another way to open this page is to give a “Run” command for shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and open.

Note :
The above works perfect on 32-bit versions. But be a little careful on other ones.

Steve Jobs Says – “iRest”

Jobs holding a white iPhone 4 at Worldwide Developers Conference 2010Everyone knows Jobs… Steve Jobs. A great personality in the tech world, famous as co-founder of Apple and its former CEO, Steve Jobs is admired among all.

This post was originally posted describing about his resignation but presently, I am modifying it to cover the whole, as a small tribute to the great man who has done so much for tech.
Thus, here are some words remembering Jobs and a view of his resignation, which he gave about a month ago. More

Vendor Prefixes in CSS

A web-standard is only useful if it’s implemented. However, standards are often implemented even before they are fully defined. Sometimes, there are differences in how they are defined in different browsers. Taking CSS for instance, new CSS features under development or in the process of standardization are implemented with specific vendor prefixes. Given is a view of vendor prefixes of some prominent browsers. More

Conserving Your Flash Memories

You can’t afford any damage to your memory cards and USB drives, which is to say flash memories. After all, they contain all your privet data and office documents.
One can’t do without a bunch of important data with him on the go, in shape of a flash memory. Similarly, taking care of such devices is equally essential. There exist some simple practices which ensure that one doesn’t ends up losing all his data because of decay in the memory.
Here is the code of conserving them, giving them a precious protection… More
