Steve Jobs (1955-2011),Apple Co-Founder,Dies at 56

Steve Jobs, co-founder of computer and software giant Apple Computers Inc., and until recently its CEO, has died at the age of 56, according to reports from Apple.
126933 steve jobs Steve Jobs (1955 2011),Apple Co Founder,Dies at 56

After a troubling diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in 2003 followed by a liver transplant in 2009, reports surfaced earlier this year that Jobs was suffering from a recurrence of his cancer. This time out, Jobs was hit with pancreatic cancer known as islet cell carcinoma, difficult to cure if in late phases.
img 153082 steve jobs faces Steve Jobs (1955 2011),Apple Co Founder,Dies at 56
On August 24, Jobs, known for being heavily involved in every creative step of Apple, resigned recently , handing over the reins to Tim Cook. Jobs stepped down from a company he helped found with friend Steve Wozniak in 1976, working out of a parent's home. Over the 35 years he served Apple, Jobs helped guide the creative growth and marketing of its many computing and entertainment products, beginning with the Apple i.

After Apple went public in 1980, Jobs became and maintained status as one of the technology sector's leading celebrities, taking the stage year after year and dazzling consumers with Apple's vast array of computing and entertainment-related products and services, including iPods, iPhones, iPads, Macs and sites such as iTunes.

From Bill Gates to Barack Obama, everyone paid to the icon.

"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs," President Barack Obama said in a statement. "Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."

"Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to Steve Jobs' family & friends," said former rival and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. "For those of us lucky enough to get to work with Steve, it's been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."

Google co-founder Sergey Brin:

From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration or vision and leadership, we need to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in Preston the few times we have met. On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: "Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you."

Now he all left us the world with a "GoodBye!"
STEVE JOBS SAYS GOOD BYE 300x225 Steve Jobs (1955 2011),Apple Co Founder,Dies at 56

Tips to Conserve Laptop Battery Power in Windows 7

The world is getting more mobile day by day and to keep the pace you need power in your batteries. But it has a limitation, you need to charge it again and again to keep them running.

Although Windows 7 has many power management improvements, and while the Power Efficiency Diagnostic Tool in Windows 7 can give you a lot of power optimization tips, laptop batteries are still not as efficient as we'd like them to be. They can maximum hold power for 5-6 hours only. So, do you want to maximize the efficient use of battery?

The trick is to squeeze the most out of the power that's available. Here are these few tricks which will improve the battery performance in a dramatic way.

The most common tip, if you have time to do only one thing:

Use the Power saver power plan to maximize your battery life. (To choose the Power saver plan, open Power Options in Control Panel.)

Some other ways to help stretch your computer's battery life:

Choose a power saving power plan

A power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings that control how your laptop manages power. Windows 7 has two default plans:

  • Balanced: Offers full performance and display brightness when you need it, but conserves power when the computer is idle.
  • Power saver: The best choice for extending battery life. The cost? Slower performance and lower display brightness.
  • Your computer manufacturer might offer additional plans as well.
  1. To change your power plan click the battery meter icon in the notification area of the Windows taskbar.
  2. Battery meter showing power plans. Select one of the default power plans: Balanced or Power saver26 Jul 11 7 27 50 PM1 Tips to Conserve Battery Power and Extend or Prolong Battery Life in Windows 7
  3. You can also create your own custom power saver plans by using More power options.

Reduce display brightness

Display is the most power consuming part of a computer—even more than a hard disk and CPU. Most of the laptops come with dedicated keys to control the brightness and contrast ratio of the display. You can also adjust the display brightness from Power Options in Control Panel.

Decrease time for Windows dims and turns off the display

You can save power by having Windows dim and then turn off the display after a period of inactivity. You can save more power if you decrease the time and increase the efficiency of battery.

To choose when Windows dims and turns off the display

  1. Click battery icon in notification area and click on More Power Options.
  2. On the Select a power plan page, on the left, click Choose when to turn off the display26 Jul 11 7 26 25 PM Tips to Conserve Battery Power and Extend or Prolong Battery Life in Windows 7
  3. Doing this adjusts settings only for the plan that you're currently using. To change settings for another plan, click Change plan settings next to the plan that you want to change.
  4. Click Save changes.

Turn off or remove devices that you aren't using

Many USB devices use power just by being connected. If you use a USB mouse, you can save power by disconnecting the mouse and by using a touch pad. If you use a USB flash drive, unplug it when you're not using it.

Turn off PC cards and integrated wireless devices

These devices also use power. If you don't need them, turn them off.

You can use Windows Mobility Center to manage most of these options. To open WMC, Click Start and type Windows Mobility center and click on the first result.

How to find out who is using your wireless network

Do you suspect that someone is wrongfully using your wireless network connection? Maybe your wireless connection is slow these days and you suspect that someone has hacked into it. Well, there are several free tools available which can help you detect who is using your connection illegally. I am covering two tools here, but if you know of any more, please do share below in the comments.

network watcher 400x150 How to find out who is using your wireless network

Wireless Network Watcher is the 3rd new tool released by Nirsoft, this month. It is a small utility that scans your wireless network and displays the list of all computers and devices that are currently connected to your network.

It will display the following information for each connection:

  1. IP address
  2. MAC address
  3. Manufacturer of the network card
  4. Computer name
  5. Device Name.

The tool also allows you to export the list of connected devices and save it as an html,xml, csv or a text file.

Another utility for sniffing if someone else is using your wireless network is Zamzom.

wireless network tool 445x600 How to find out who is using your wireless network

Zamzom Wireless Network Tool lets you see all  the users that are using your wireless network. There are two scan options but only the Fast Scan is available in the free version, but that should be good enough for most, I suppose. Once the scan is completed, it displays the IP address and MAC address.

Top 10 downloads of the past 10 years

By Kelly Green Morrison and Karen Whitehouse,
When CNET opened its doors in 1996, it was home to 3,000 small shareware and freeware applications. Online software distribution was still in its infancy. What a difference a near-decade makes! Since 1996, we've watched the rise of instant messaging, digital audio and the MP3 format, file sharing, spyware and antispyware, and the open-source movement, just to name a few. And we've watched as online software distribution has gone from pipe dream to reality. These 10 applications best represent the top trends in downloading over the past decade.


Today instant messengers are ubiquitous, but when ICQ ("I Seek You") was first released in 1997, it was truly the first of its kind. Though competitors such as Yahoo Instant Messenger and AIM have since encroached on ICQ's territory, this chat client remains enormously popular with international users, and it has remained one of's most popular applications since its launch.


Arriving fast on the heels of the emerging MP3 digital format, Nullsoft's Winamp was one of the darlings of the burgeoning digital audio scene in the late '90s. This free audio player quickly gained popularity, becoming one of the most popular files on, and Nullsoft was eventually acquired by AOL in 1999.

Who doesn't remember this controversial file-sharing kingpin? Developed by Northeastern University student Shawn Fanning, Napster was a groundbreaking application that enabled users to share MP3s painlessly for the first time through a peer-to-peer network. Napster has since been sued, shuttered, and reborn as a subscription music service, but its legacy remains.
Developed by the open-source Mozilla project in 2003, Firefox was the first browser to show the promise of breaking Microsoft's stranglehold on the browser market. Lightweight, secure, and packed with useful features, Firefox exemplifies the promise of the strengthening open-source movement.

When CNET launched in 1996, WinZip was among the first programs in our library, and in the past nine years, it has remained near the top of our Most Popular list. The reason is simple: For many years, WinZip was an essential utility. You couldn't download or send large files without it. Even the fact that Windows XP now has built-in ZIP support hasn't diminished its popularity. The keys to WinZip's success are its simplicity and its singularity of purpose: it does one thing--compressing and decompressing files--and it does it very well.
Apple's music player and organizer makes our top 10 list for the sheer beauty of its product design. iTunes is not only a full-featured media player and library in its own right, it's also the gateway for Apple's iPod and popular music store, creating an elegant and simple interface for buying and organizing music. If only all software were this easy to use.
Almost as soon as there was software to download, there was adware coming along for the ride. Lavasoft did its part to hold the line with Ad-aware, a spyware scanner and remover. Its simple interface and excellent results have gained the program acclaim over the past five years, including a recent monopoly on the No. 1 slot in's Most Popular list. We wouldn't download files without it, and apparently, neither would most of you.

If Internet signals can travel over a phone line, then voice calls can travel over the Internet, right? With a Voice-over-IP (VOIP) program such as Skype, they certainly can. The prospect of making free calls to folks all over the globe has persuaded millions of people to install the software; the ease of use and surprising voice quality have earned Skype a loyal user base and accolades that include a CNET Editors' Choice and a Webby.
Ten years ago, the Web was full of static content. The 1995 debut of RealPlayer changed all that. Streaming audio and video in a free media player was a bold step forward into making the Internet a viable entertainment platform, and RealNetworks was there. Today the software plays almost every media format, and the online music store sells tunes compatible with most MP3 players--even the iPod. RealPlayer hasn't always been at the head of the class, but it was there first, and it keeps adapting to the developing world of online media.

Adobe Acrobat Reader
Bridging the gap between print and Internet publishing, Adobe's portable document format (PDF) lets publishers distribute their articles, newsletters, and documentation online without worrying about formatting problems or unauthorized alterations. By giving away the Acrobat Reader early on, Adobe helped create a nearly unassailable market position. If you want to read magazine archives or software manuals online, you need Acrobat Reader--as its nearly seven-year occupation of the Most Popular list can attest.

HOW TO Change Windows XP Home to Windows XP Pro

We can’t vouch for this hack, because we are too lazy to try it (and we never, ever violate copyrights or EULAs), but kind reader Martin explains the process for turning an Windows XP Home install disc to a Windows XP Pro disc after the jump.

It sounds pretty simple to do (just some registry changes), but you can’t install Service Pack 2, so you might try to slipstream in the changes to your modified install disc (if that’s even possible).

Alternately, buy XP Pro, or get a Mac.

yes indeed, you can’t change an installed Windows but only your Installation CD (or even a recovery CD in case the manufacturer had not left out important parts)

Here’s the detailed breakdown you asked for.

1. Copy the root directory and the i386 directory of the WindowsXP CD
to your harddisk
2. Extract the Bootsector of your WindowsXP CD
3. Change 2 Bytes in i386\ :
a) Open Regedit
c) Menu: File -> Load Structure -> i386\
d) Assign an arbitrary name to the imported structure e.g. “Homekey”
e) Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Homekey\ControlSet001\Services\setupdd
f) edit the binary key “default” and change “01” to “00” and “02” to
g) Highlight “Homekey” and select menu: File -> unload structure
4. Burn your new XP Pro CD
5. Install WindowsXP as usual. Your XP Home Key will work.

Note: You cannot apply SP2 to such a WindowsXP Pro, so step 1.b)
might be to integrate SP2 in your Installation CD

Please check the menu-entries as I don’t owe an English copy of
XP and have to guess them.
