Wanna tour the galaxy in details? Well, the heavens are only a few mouse clicks away with Google Sky, a new feature in Google Earth. The company's satellite imagery-based mapping software allows users to view the sky from their computers.
This cool tool provides information about various celestial bodies, from stars to planets, and includes imagery from the Hubble Space Telescope and other sources. It also allows users to take virtual tours through galaxies, including the Milky Way, from any point on Earth they choose.
This software also promises users the ability to see planets in motion and witness a supernova. What's unique about Google Sky is that you have all the imaging data over the whole of the sky actually streaming, which means you can look at something that covers most of the sky, say our Milky Way galaxy, and you can zoom right into a tiny galaxy that's in the formation cycle.

Fans of cameras and photography, don't like to carry a tripod around? Well most of us don't but sometimes you'll find yourself where the light levels are so low that you really have to use one. the problem with most so-called "table top" tripods is finding a convenient flat surface to put the tripod on to get the height you need.
Here comes Gorillapod, funky- looking mini-tripods come in a variety of sizes to suit everything from compact digital cameras to full sized, zoom-lens equipped DSLRs.
The legs of Gorillapod are made up of many interlocking ball-joints, which means that the legs can be twisted into almost any shape you can think of. On top of that, each ball joint has a grip required to let you bend the legs around and grip almost anything (vertical lamp posts, chairs, etc) without slipping. The Gorillapod are also light and small enough to stow away in any bag.

If you think of failure, you will fail
If you don't have the mind to achieve, you will not succeed
If you want to win, you must not let the word ' failure' enter your mind
Or success will never shine on you
If you do not work seriously, you will fail
By observing nature and the Universe
It has been found that success originates from one's own will power
Everything is controlled by human psychology condition
If you wish to left behind, you will left behind
If you aspire for the highest position
Before you can succeed
You must have the belief that ' I Will Make It '
Life is like a constant battle
You do not only needs to be strong and have guts to win
As of all people who eventually achieved success
Are people who sincerely believe that ' I Will Make It '

Firefox 2.0 has a vulnerability that can leave its users susceptible to an identity theft attack, according to Aviv Raff, a security researcher based in Israel.
Raff outlined a bug in Firefox that allows spoofing and enables an attacker “to conduct phishing attacks, by tricking the user to believe that the authentication dialog box is from a trusted website.” The versions affected include Firefox v184.108.40.206 and prior versions. Ryan Naraine got a private demo of Raff’s work and noted that this attack is easy to fall for.
Raff in his post outlines two possible attacks:
1. An attacker creates a web page with a link to a trusted website (e.g. Bank, PayPal, Webmail, etc.). When the victim clicks on the link, the trusted web page will be opened in a new window, and a script will be executed to redirect the new opened window to the attacker’s web server, which will then return the specially crafted basic authentication response.
2. An attacker embeds an image (pointing to the attacker’s web server, which will return the specially crafted basic authentication response) to:
- A mail which will be sent to a webmail user.
- RSS feed which will be consumed by a web RSS reader.
- A forum/blog/social network page.
As for the workaround, Raff suggests avoiding sites that require password authentication and give you a dialog that looks like this. Mozilla last issued a security patch for Firefox Nov. 27.

Old photos and duplicates take up precious space in your hard disk and it can be a daunting task to manually sorting through all the folders to remove these files. Thankfully, there is an easier way for you to do this and it won't cost you any money.
With VisiPics, a freeware from Ozone, you can now sit back and let the application automate the process. You can select the photos you do not want to keep and remove them with a push of a button. The user-friendly VisiPics does more than look for identical files where it applies five image-comparison filters to measure how close pairs of images on the hard drive are.
It will detect two different resolution files of the same picture as a duplicate, or the same picture saved in different formats, or duplicates where only minor changes have taken place. All detected duplicates are shown side by side with pertinent information like file-name, type and size displayed.

If you signed up for Google's email service, you can use its Google Talk network to send instant messages to people on your Gmail address book. You can write messages to people in your contacts list right there in the browser and even save your transcripts to your Gmail account.
Windows user can also download stand-alone Google Talk instant-message software, which lets you transfer larger files between computer, make free PC-to-PC voice calls over the Internet and even leave voice mail for friends on your contacts list.
Because Google Talk uses the Jabber network, your instant messages don't go through the same network and servers used by chat sessions in the Microsoft Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! or other instant messaging services but it is possible to chat with people on other IM networks, usually by using IM software that links the different systems such as Psi, Adium and Trillion Pro.
