ASUS has launched its Eee Keyboard at CES '09 which is a full-fledged PC embedded in a QWERTY keyboard with a built-in 5-inch (800x480 resolution)touch screen and an HDMI to let you connect it to any TV to have a large screen view.
Now having a look at the specifications, we come to know that it has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 or N330 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16 or 32GB SSD(solid-state drive), 11.0b/g/n WiFi,Bluetooth 2.0, 2 USB 2.0 ports, VGA, HDMI & audio input/output ports, a built-in mic and a speaker. The HDMI out port might be used to connect to a video monitor or an HDTV wirelessly.
The Eee Keyboard comes with windows XP pre-installed on it so we cannot consider it the next multimedia solution but its a nice gadget to be owned by Geeks. It has not yet hit the markets but is announced to be launched 3 to 6 months later. No price is announced yet.

Here comes the Logic Bolt's Projector-Phone.Now there's no need to worry about the tiny screen. The buit-in projector of this phone can project a fair screen of the size of a normal TV. Built-in projection is 640x480 pixels.
The picture quality is fair enough to provide you with an engaging entertainment time. The phone comes with a 3 megapixel camera and 4GB storage with microSD extension capability. It not only projects its own screen but can also do it for external VGA and RCA inputs. Battery is not an ideal one but can last for 2 hours in projection mode. It
is currently a GSM phone but a nice inituitive to pave the way to 3G projector phones!
Here is a picture slideshow.

Paul Debevec and Andrew Jones of USC Institute for Creative Technologies along with Ian McDowall of Fakespace Labs, Inc., Hideshi Yamada of Sony Corporation, Mark Bolas of USC School of Cinematic Arts have created world's first real 3D display with 360 degree viewing. The display consists of a reflecting glass rotating at a high speed to give a 3D view, same as we can see in our real life.
Here is a demonstration video:
According to the project team, the display was shown at the SIGGRAPH 2007 Emerging Technologies exhibition in August 2007 in San Diego, California, where it won the award for "Best Emerging Technology". The award brought with it an invitation to show the 3D Display technology at Laval Virtual, the 10th International Conference on Virtual Reality in Laval, France in April 2008.More details can be found here.

We find many people mourning over their stolen passwords. Many say that someone has hacked their email account and is sending emails on their behalf. Sometimes even the passwords are changed and the victim is unable to login. Same is the case with Facebook, Twitter, Orkut and other well known services these days. Now the question arises that what's the security flaw with these million dollar services??? In fact these websites have no security flaw! Then how is it possible for hackers to gain access to your account?? The answer is "Phishing". According to this trick, a web page visually exactly the same as the relevant website is created to deceive the users. E.g a fake Facebook login page is created. You enter your username and password and this info is sent to the hacker's email address and also to the Facebook to let you login! In all this scenario, you never come to know that you are hacked!
Mostly you receive fake emails directing you to a phishing page. For example you may receive a message with "Facebook" in the sender column and "A new Message on Facebook" as the subject. Obviously you will click the contained link to go to Facebook and as soon as you enter your login information, you are ruined!
Now the question arises that how to protect yourself? How to differentiate between a fake login page and an original one? The answer is simple! Always look at the address of the website in your browser before entering the personal information. For example if you see "www.Facebook.xyz.com" instead of "www.Facebook.com" in the address bar, it means that you are entering your information on "www.xyz.com" and not on "www.Facebook.com". Entering information on www.gmail.com/login, www.accounts.google.com, www.login.yahoo.com, www.signup.orkut.com is OK. Why? because the word just before .com, .net, .org defines the real website and is called the top level domain name (TLD).
Now-a-days a phishing site is very active for Facebook and Twitter. As seen in the following snaps:
So the simplest rule to save yourself is to verify the domain name before entering login information for your email or any other web service.

But have you ever thought of living without a cell phone?? No? I have!
My cell phone got damaged mysteriously, six months ago. It was a precious and obviously a costly cell phone. A sight at its blank screen was enough to make me sad. I ran to a reparing shop and the guy there promised to repair it for a heavy payment. But after a continuous effort of a couple of hours, when he re-assembled the phone it was in the same condition. In a deep grief condition I returned home.
A few days later, when I was thinking over buying a new one, I felt that life is very happy without it. I noticed that when I keep on working in the office for late hours, I don't receive any calls from home. While working on a critical project, I am not disturbed with an annoying text message. My cell phone does not ring in the middle of an important meeting. I don't have a hassle of turning it off before entering the mosque. I go for an outing and come home late at night but I never receive annoying calls from home. Whenever I get late for the office, my boss cannot call me, all I have to face is what I face in the office. I never have to care for it to fall while playing football with my mates. I never have to find a safe place to place it when I put off my clothes for swimming. When we go for hiking, we ask one of us to stay at the bottom of the hill caring for the cell phones of all of us but now I don't have to handover it to him. I never come across a situation when a colleague snatches it and spends all the credit. I never have to attend an emergency call while driving. I never ever have to worry for its battery drain out. I never have to care for it while enjoying in the rain. No one calls me to say that rush to me, there's an emergency. I never have to put one hand on my pocket while walking through a crowd. Nobody asks to lend it to him for a couple of days.
Whenever I plan to buy a new cell phone I recall the annoying calls of my boss, Whenever I decide to turn to the cell phone shop, I recall an emergency call which made me very close to a road-side accident. Whenever I see an iPhone in my friend's hand I decide to buy one but I suddenly recall the snatch.
In short, it has been six months when my phone got damaged and I have never seen happier moments in my life. I advice all of you to live a happy life without a cell phone!

Recently, Israel's attack on Palastine is a continuation of its past role. So far more than 400 people have been martyred. The great flag holders of freedom of speach are all scilent on Israel's restriction on the coverage of the incident. However I salute Al-Jazeerah TV for having these videos published.
The Zionist state Israel claims to be a jewish state, protecting the Jewish religion but here is a very interesting video in which the pro-religious jews are protesting against Israel.
International media is banned by Israel so a very few pictures of war wrecked area are revealed. But here I dare to reveal some pictures taken by a friend of mine who lives in Ghaza.
