    Bah! There is enough and more security technology readily available... For those who know what they want and where to look ;)

    Google forking Webkit to create its own rendering engine...Blink. Opera to follow suit.

    Poor, POOR KHTML. Nobody gives it credit for all the goodies spawned through it these days and almost nothing gets pushed upstream, to an extent that Konqueror users now use WebKit for rendering.

    Is your net slow presently? Blame the worlds biggest DDoS attack

    Beam Fibre speeds pathetic at home. Office internet has also slowed down to particular sites for no apparent reason. Now I know why....

    TVS-e GOLD Keyboard

    Sheesh. I'm in Hyderabad. I don't think we have an equivalent of Nehru Place, SP Road or Lamington Road. :( Considering that I'll be keeping it for as long as it lasts, I don't think I will be looking at the option of buying used.

    TVS-e GOLD Keyboard

    If the PS/2 version is indeed 1.5k, it seems FlipKart is ripping people off: its 1.85k for PS/2 and 1.8k for USB 2.0. Can someone suggest me a link to buy it online at a good price ? My fingers are getting pwned and apparently you cannot file a workplace harassment case against keyboards. :rolleyes:

    Galaxy young and fame unveiled

    Samsung could do with larger screens and more appropriate RAM sizes, but please stop comparing it with Micromax. Its phones typically emit significantly more radiation compared to their samsung peers (this is true in a majority of their phones) and I'd definitely not mind paying an additional...

    Intel to quit motherboard market

    2005 Intel D915GLVG board with a Pentium 4 506 (2.66GHz single core) still running crawling fine. IMO Intel boards were reliable mainly because they never let you tweak ANYTHING in the BIOS. The whole thing was locked out and all you could do was set boot preferences and view system...

    US Department of Defense signs three-year, $617 million Windows 8 licensing deal

    Personally I'm glad India is not following the US here. Linux is making a lot of inroads here instead :D PS: And just for the reference, Indian defence sector does not run on pirated windows xp. Government offices maybe yes (and even that is fast changing) but definitely not our military. Its...

    Software Project Suggestions needed

    I normally follow one rule religiously - never reinvent the wheel. You have existing systems that can be installed to provide facilities on the intranet like file storage, anywhere login, email with attachments, etc. For example, Zentyal - The Linux Small Business Server is a pretty neat...

    need help in career planning...

    It would help if you mention what branch you are from. I'm assuming you are from CSE and posting whatever is below. Yes, this time recruitment for mass IT jobs is little less. Infosys usually offers final semester internship to its recruits and this time it never contacted any students from...

    F.I.R. Against Honey Singh For "vulgar songs"

    That song is NOT by Honey Singh if you think its the same song as the one I'm talking about (has guitar and vocals alone...). Ch**t Vol 1 is the most famous song by Honey Singh (also has some random bloke called Badshah doing co-vocals in it). Balaatkari is by some other band whose name I forget...

    F.I.R. Against Honey Singh For "vulgar songs"

    This is ridiculous lol. His songs are those to be taken on good humour. Used to be extremely popular in 1st year of college when any sentence with some random swears in it used to sound funny. For those who have no idea who/what Honey Singh is, go to youtube and search "Ch**t Vol 1". Replace **...

    Linux From Scratch As A Final Year Project

    Actually, whether you can or cannot use Linux From Scratch as a final year project depends entirely on your college and the projects review/approval committee. If they're OK with it, I see no reason why you shouldn't take it up. Be sure to add some customized bling (bling = theming) and a few...

    Apple offers to pay Google $1 per device

    I understand apple wants a lot more than just 1$ per device from other manufacturers who infringe on its so-called patents (most of which deal with visual elements that shouldn't be allowed to be patentable in the first place). Hence I feel google should pursue for much more than just 1$.

    Nexus 4 Benchmarks on AnandTech - Beats other Flagship android smartphones

    My phone purchase is due the coming feb or march. Nexus 4 seems to fit the bill perfectly - unlike the highly overpriced previous nexus devices, at 299$ US price, its Indian price should be around 18k - perfect for a 4.7" Quad Core phone. Just hoping for a proper Indian launch and rupee...

    16gb usb 3.0 pen drive for Rs 500 ..!

    Thread moved to right section... I came across this deal too. Was almost about to buy it till I realized I don't (still) have any USB 3.0 capable machines at home. Decided to wait it out, let the prices drop further and jump in when I get a USB 3.0 capable laptop/desktop :oops:

    Windows 8.... What do you think ?

    My ACM Student membership apparently gives me a free dreamspark premium account from what I found out from a mailer today at around 1AM. And it seems Windows 8 Professional 64bit RTM is already out on DS. I applied for my account, got it approved today evening and proceeded to do the juggad...

    [Complaint] Stay Away from Snap deal - Bitter Experience of buying an Asus X53 TA

    That is the reason I always recommend people to ONLY buy via COD unless the site is proven to be VERY reliable or you live in a country where litigation (for fraud) is quick and easy and law enforcement is good.
