Weekly Highlights [Aug 22, 2005 – Aug 28, 2005]

Monday 29 August 2005 @ 2:01 am

Another week has passed. Sigh … Last week was a busy one, and yet another low productivity week in blogging. Anyway, if you come over to my blog and find nothing new, don’t forget there is a new service which provides you latest news from various sources. If you would like to read more news from other sources, do let me now by sending a request to me at Email, I’ll definitely consider it.

Ok, let’s take a look of what have I written last week.

I read about a stunning news last Monday that Intel Pentium D is actually using two Pentium 4 core on the same package !! Which means old technology is used on a “new” product. Then there was a security alert to developers of big companies, such as Google, MSN, that uses toolkit is called CPAINT, which is used to create applications using AJAX (an approach to writing web application).

I posted a review of the next version of Windows, Windows Vista, from CoolTechZone.com. It’s not a very thorough review but at least we have more insight about Windows Vista now.

Microsoft released its new MSN Messenger, MSN Messenger 7.5, to stay in competition after Yahoo launched their latest Instant Messenger (IM), Yahoo IM 7.0. In less than 24 hours after I talked about MSN Messenger 7.5, Google launched its own Instant Messenger as well, Google Talk Beta !!

Last Thursday was a happy day as Penny made me a nice fan sign. However, she requested me to return her with a special fan sign. :p

I attended the Penang bloggers gathering on 21 Aug, 2005, but I only posted about it on 26 Aug, 2005. Anyway, it was my first bloggers gathering and I felt happy meeting they all that day. :) Then I posted a news saying Microsoft is planning to release an anti-phishing filter for Internet Explorer 6.0 (previously planned to be integrated in the forthcoming IE7) and MSN Toolbar.

I posted a Google Quiz, which tests your knowledge on using the famous search engine, Google Search. Try it out and see do you really know some extra features of the search engine.

I create a blue theme for the new Google Talk. So, if you are bored with its original grey colour interface, feel free to download it, and share it with your friends as well. :)
