12 Megapixel Digital Cameras Prices

In earlier phase when digital cameras were only 2 or 3 MP’s, each megapixel mattered if you were making bigger prints. There was little observable difference between cameras with apparently different ratings. For instance, a 3 MP camera pretty much looks the same as a 6 MP camera, even when blown up to 12 x 18″ (30x50cm)!

Sharpness depends more on your photographic skill than the number of megapixels, because most people’s careless technique or subject motion blurs the image more than the width of a microscopic pixel. Color and quality are far more important theoretically. Some lower resolution digital cameras made better images than some higher resolution ones.

12 Megapixels Cameras

Resolution of 12 megapixel cameras pictures at 4200-pixels-by-2800-pixels pictures taken with the cameras print out in sizes up to 16-inches-by-24-inches with a clear resolution. 12 megapixels cameras are use for the pros, its detail needs to be managed and changed, enlarged, cropped and turned into the kind of work you see in National Geographic kind of channels.

Toshiba's new invention runs on a fusion of methanol and atmospheric oxygen. The electricity is generated as a result of a chemical reaction between the two. Currently the 3,000 units of the methanol fuel cell charger are available only at Shop1048 in Japan. One unit can be acquired for around $330. One replacement methanol fuel pack costs around $6, informs EnviroGadget.

iPhone 5 Release Date and Features and Specifications of iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 is a magnum opus without a doubt. It is set to change the way the smartphones play their game. Apple has not released one iota of information about iPhone 5 specs as yet, but with the help of rumors that have surfaced through some very possible claims, we have summarized the entire iPhone 5 phenomena for you. Here’s it:
Rumors are running high all around. Just like it happened when the world awaited the iPhone 4 release, rumors are running about in every website that you could think of. iPhone 5 is already a phenomena that is sure to take the smartphone market by storm. As usual, it’s an Apple product and Apple’s devices have always caused such a huge flutter of activity in the market even before they get released officially.
iPhone 5 features are much touted to change the way smartphones would function. Improved interface, greater Near Field Communications, much better gesture-based controls and such startlingly new technologies are rumored to be figure in the iPhone 5 features. Even if half the news that we hear about iPhone 5 turns out to be true, then we sure have a rocker smartphone in our hands.
iPhone 5 Concept

iPhone 4 to iPhone 5
So how does the iPhone 5 compare with the iPhone 4? Experts say that software-wise, iPhone 5 is a minor update over iPhone 4. Most notable areas of change are the hardware parts, the processor and the way iPhone 5 lets you sync your work. The iOS is different on both the devices and that is probably as far as it can get. The signal issues that iPhone 4 has would probably be removed totally in the iPhone 5 design – that was one huge problem Apple was facing.

Popular websites that keep us in-tune with iPhone 5 feature rumors and news seem to unanimously agree that the iPhone 5 would boast a slimmer design than the iPhone 4. Being wary of the glass display and the glass back of the iPhone 4 – because of its brittle nature – features of iPhone 5 could very well have an all-metal look with a stronger and stolid display. This might also reduce the chances of the signal problem we found in iPhone 4.

Hulu!! What is it?

 Are you looking for some inside information on Hulu? Here's an up-to-date report from experts who should know.
Sometimes the most important aspects of a subject are not immediately obvious. Keep reading to get the complete picture.

The stage is set for a showdown between television networks and cable/satellite TV services, thanks to the internet. It won’t happen overnight, but your monthly cable or satellite bill could eventually be replaced by a monthly bill from Hulu, an online service that streams TV shows on demand.

For $10 a month, viewers will reportedly have access to a wider selection of shows than the free, ad-supported version Hulu currently offers. The service would work on PCs and specialized devices such as the iPad, videogame consoles and set-top boxes. The company plans to test a version of this “Hulu Plus” subscription, an expected development, with select users as early as this month to find out whether they’ll will bite, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal and All Things Digital.

Basic Virus programming

This section is dedicated to those who would like to write a Virus program, but don't have the knowledge to do so. First of all, writing a virus is no big deal. It is an easy project, but one which requires some basic programming skills, and the desire to write a virus! If either of these is missing, writing a virus would be tedious indeed! Well, if you meet these requisites, keep reading this article....

The survival of a virus is based in its ability to reproduce. "So how the fuck do I make a program reproduce?” you might ask. Simple, by getting it to copy itself to other files....
The functional logic of a virus is as follows:
1- Search for a file to infect
2- Open the file to see if it is infected
3- If infected, search for another file
4- Else, infect the file
5- Return control to the host program.

The following is an example of a simple virus:
Warning, this example is a (piece of shit?)
- The virus does not test for prior infection
- it searches only for the first .COM file in the current directory. Careful when executing this file, since the first time it's executed it will search for and infect the first file in the directory. If we later run the newly infected file, it will find the first file in its directory, itself. Thus, it will re-infect itself over and over.

The Difference Between Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Firefox and Chrome Browser

The Disappearing Google Logo

Here’s a magic trick to surprise your friends with. What they will see is this: you are at the Google homepage, and you casually ask someone to watch the Google logo. Then, you move two of your fingers to completely cover the “o”s in the Google logo. When you remove your fingers, to much surprise, the letters “o” will be missing from the logo. Now you ask your friend to move her fingers over the missing “o”s. After your friend removes the fingers, the logo will be complete again! The trick here? It’s not really the Google homepage you and your friend are looking at – it’s a fake page (  And when you click on the page, the letters of the logo will disappear after five seconds. Clicking again will make them reappear after five more seconds. So when you move your fingers to cover the Google logo, simply click anywhere on the page, and wait a bit before you remove your fingers… and when your friend covers the letters, you click again. (A third click, by the way, will change the page to an actual Google homepage so you can perform searches to “prove” the page is real.)

156 Windows Xp Run Commands


The "Run" line in the Start menu can be used to speed up access to a whole variety of functions.

Clicking the entry "Run" opens the box shown below, where commands may be typed and entered.

Opening applications in Run

Although applications can be opened in a variety of ways, the Run line often provides the quickest route. Desktop shortcut icons are also a quick route but you have to know how to create a shortcut for all the applications and you may end up with dozens of icons.

The best candidates for the Run line are applications that are in the "path" environment. The path environment is a set of folders whose names do not have to be included when entering a command. The path environment variable normally includes \Windows\ and \Windows\system32\. Many common accessories and Windows applets are in these folders and can be opened by entering just the executable file name. Several that I use constantly are the Registry editor (regedit) and the System Configuration Utility (msconfig). Note that neither of these frequently used system tools has an entry in Start- All Programs. The Run line is the standard method of accessing them.

Facebook, the world's largest social network, announced in July 2010 that it had 500 million users around the world. The company has grown at a meteoric pace, doubling in size since 2009 and pushing international competitors aside. Its policies, more than those of any other company, are helping to define standards for privacy in the Internet age.

The company, founded in 2004 by a Harvard sophomore, Mark Zuckerberg, began life catering first to Harvard students and then to all high school and college students. It has since evolved into a broadly popular online destination used by both teenagers and adults of all ages. In country after country, Facebook is cementing itself as the leader and often displacing other social networks, much as it outflanked MySpace in the United States.

But it has also come to be seen as one of the new titans of the Internet, challenging even Google with a vision of a web tied together through personal relationships and recommendations, rather than by search algorithms. In a major expansion, Facebook has spread itself across other websites by offering members the chance to "Like'' something -- share it with their network -- without leaving the web page they're on.

In November 2010, Mr. Zuckerberg introduced Facebook Messages, a new unified messaging system that allows people to communicate with one another on the Web and on mobile phones regardless of whether they are using e-mail, text messages or online chat services.

In January, 2011, Facebook raised $500 million from Goldman Sachs and a Russian investor in a deal that values the company at $50 billion -- more than companies like eBay, Yahoo and Time Warner. The stake by Goldman Sachs, considered one of Wall Street’s savviest investors, signals the increasing might of Facebook, which has already been bearing down on giants like Google.

Information Technology Career List

I once had to give a talk explaining what kids of jobs were available for graduates in computer science and information technology. The talk developed into a kind of information technology career list. It started with the question :
What is a career in computer technology?
And continued :
Is it just sitting in front of a glowing box all day? Not at all!

A career in information technology is a rewarding, challenging career, with many possible paths open to you. If your passion is interacting with people, listening to them, understanding what they want, the System Analyst is the role for you. On the other hand, if you love directing and coordinating a team of hard-working individuals, you should aim high and become a Project Leader. On the other hand, some really do prefer the joy of coding - willing the glowing box to do their bidding. Far from being a couch potato, the Programmer's position is one many find extremely rewarding. There are many branches to the Information Technology career tree. Read on to find out more about some of them, and decide which one you'd like to squirrel up to.

First of all, any modern career is a challenge. For a graduate to succeed our rapidly changing world requires skills rarely taught in school or university - skills such as flexibility and adaptability, the willingness to continually learn, mixed together with a good dose of creativity, and good ole getting along well with colleagues, bosses and customers. This is equally true, if not more, in the field of information technology. Technologies and techniques change continually, and the most nimble-minded are the ones who thrive. On another page I talk about how best to obtain these soft skills, and some of the pitfalls that a new graduate should beware of when embarking on a career in information technology or computer science. For now, I'll describe for you some typical information technology jobs, and tell you about the kinds of careers that they can lead to.

Apple’s iOS 4.3 beta reveals upcoming features on iPad 2


Apple released its iOS 4.3 beta version for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple TV (2nd Generation), giving a possible preview into the upcoming iPad 2 and iPhone 5 features.

The release also confirms that the iOS 4.3 will not be available for iPhone 3G and iPod second generation. The beta version is available in the iOS Dev Center with a build number 8F5148b.

Some features which could hit the iPad are four and five finger gestures. This will add multitasking features to iPad. Thus a four or five finger pinch will lead a user to the home screen, a swiping up gesture will bring the multitasking bar and left and right swipes will assist in navigating between apps.

Macstories reported that iOS 4.3 will also bring the AirPlay video support for third-party apps unlike its earlier feature which limited it to built-in Apple apps. Engadget had reported in November that Apple had built this feature in the iOS 4.2 but had not enabled it for third-party apps. The AirPlay feature supports Apple TV as it allows users to stream digital content from iPhone; iPad and iPod touch to Apple TV. Thus now developers can stream videos to Apple TV from apps directly.

The beta version also includes the Personal Hot Spot feature for iPhones. The feature allows users to share their 3G connection through Wi-Fi with up to five other devices. Recently, Verizon showcased this feature for iPhone’s running on iOS 4.2.5 which raised hopes that all iPhones will entail the hotspot feature. However, the iOS 4.3 beta confirms that the personal hotspot will come by default but will depend as to whether the carrier will support the feature.

It is also surmised that the iOS update will carry location-based services. The Register reported that the Mobile Me settings panel showed a new entry Find My Friends which could be Apple’s version of Google Latitude. The Google Latitude app allows users to see a friend’s location on a map and allows users to directly communicate with them through sms, Gtalk and Gmail.

9to5 Mac reported that the iOS update also brings full screen iAd banner support on iPad.
Apple has been working hard to offer the same experience across the different devices, thus these updates are an attempt to bridge the features across iPad, iPod and iPhone. Unlike Google’s Android launches which have raised concerns about fragmentation, Apple seeks unification across its devices.
