Internet Service Provider (ISP) blocks your favourite websites, like what Streamyx is doing to us ??
For people who doesn’t know how to use proxy server, here is something helpful !!
Virtualbrowser is a web proxy-like script programmed in PHP designed to bypass firewalls, school/country blockers, and other proxy restrictions through a web interface.
The server that Virtualbrowser runs on simply acts as a medium that retrives resources for you. The only IP address shown will be Virtualbrowser server’s IP address. So basically, it is indirect browsing, keeping your information from reaching the destination website.
My first reaction when I first saw this URL was a laugh.
First, we saw YaGoohoogle, but unfortunately the site is already down for months.
Since, Baidu.com is getting famous these days. Now, there is another YaGoohoogle wanna-be, named BaiGoo.com !! It is pretty obvious that this website is trying to imitate what YaGoohoogle was doing and give you search results from both Google and Baidu displayed side by side.
Anyway, YaGoohoogle has already been taken down, I am curious to see how long will BaiGoo be serving us. :p
Well, I do not have the forthcoming Windows, Windows Vista (previously named Longhorn), to try out, but CoolTechZone.com is kind enough to do a review of the new version of Windows. Just in case you are curious about it, this review at least gives you the first impression on Windows Vista.
The following are the things the review covers : -
- Booting process – you know, right from the black colour screen before Windows is actually loaded.
- Graphics Device Interface – How Windows Vista create graphics on display.
- Virtual Folders – One of the hottest features we have been waiting to have a look.
- The Desktop – The first glimpse of the new Windows OS.
- Start Menu – The famous “Start” button that you are so familiar with.
- Windows Explorer – Not Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer is explorer that showing you your files directory tree and folder contents.
- Internet Explorer – The beta version of Internet Explorer 7 has been embedded into Windows Vista Beta 1.
From the process of cracking, I don’t think it’s hard to learn. Just follow the steps and use some 3rd party WEP cracking applications.
So, my advice to those who is buying any wireless router, it’s better to go for wireless router with WPA security. :)
Most of the Apple products are labelled with an”i” in front of the product names, like iMac, iPod etc. There are products modified from Apple products too, like what we have seen some iMac turned into aquariums.
So, I wouldn’t be surprise when I found this iToilet mod. :D
Well, I might be a few hours late to blog about this news, but it’s still worth writing. Google has finally ended the speculation of acquiring youtube.com, which already been raised over and over again for the past few months.
Seeing youtube is already serving more than 100 million videos everyday, Google decided to be the leader of online video hosting service in a quick way – by acquiring youtube.com for USD$1.65 Billion! In other words, in this purchase Google has beaten the potential buyers included Yahoo and Microsoft Corp. and media giants News Corp., owner of MySpace.com, and MTV owner Viacom Inc.
