I have just downloaded a new browser. It is not as slick as Firefox or Safari but it has one killer feature that will make it seem cool. It allows you to have in the sidebar most of the popular social networking sites such as Facebook, Digg, Twitter, YouTube, Pownce, and many more.It has a list of all the sites on there site at flock.com but it will work will most of the popular sites. Also you can set it up with blogging sites such as Blogger, Wordpress and even your own self-hosted blog. I am using the feature to post right now. I would give this browser a 8.5/10 because it is a great way to stay connected to everyone but the side bar does take a lot of space and at times I thought it was a little slow. But overall if you are the person who is constantly checking Twitter, Facebook, and publishing to blogs then you should download this and give it a try!
A quick note is that it is powered by Mozilla that is the same engine that powers Firefox.

All Apple fans including myself are waiting for the upcoming WWDC 2008 on June 9-12. There are many rumors like always, but some of the major rumors are 3G iPhone and mac Book Pro updates. The 3G iPhone is almost proven by many articles, sources, and other information online.
Apple says its going to be a Land Mark event in more than one way. Hopefully that means many new updates and products. Lets keep our fingers crossed for good updates!

My Top 5: Customize Software
Usually pertaining to Windows software , just as the mac already has such things as docks etc...
Anyhow lets jump right in
1-5 *1 being the best and so forth*
1- Windows Blinds
The ultimate skinning software developed by the company "Stardock" which has many more customize apps that'll be mentioned in this list. A very great application that costs some $$$ though is much worth it plus a gallery of an online database that expands the possibilities.
2- Object Dock
Now when Mac OSX released the dock and revolutionized the desktop and cleaned up less clutter from the desktop as well as replaced the scattered icons etc. Though on the windows side stardock does it again developing a great customize app that gives a great feel to windows grant it , it's not the osx dock but good enough for windows that has a free and pro version.
Now yeah browser themes count as customize software and from the old days of ie 5 and 6 firefox, really revolutionized the browser world with it's themes and skins for the browser with yet again a huge online database/gallery.
4- Google Desktop Widgets/etc
Now google has really develop a great Desktop pack of widgets and gadgets packed with tool bars and more to really organize the desktop and pack it with features though it's a little bloated for my taste , but none the less powerful.
5-Log on Studios XP/Vista
Who ever said you can't customize your logon screen yeah even something as basic and sometimes dull log on screen can be pimped out! Now despite the different features etc within vista's and xp version of logon studios the fact of the matter is IT CUSTOMIZES your logon screen and does a awesome job.
*Honorable Customize Apps*
SCRPAper (Screen Paper)- Allows your screen saver to act as a desktop background while working foreground behind windows.
BootSkin- Allow you to customize and change the boot screen of windows.
YodM3d- A Desktop app that allows you to have virtually 4 desktops , virtual desktops that is with a awesome interface. Now a paid app thought there is some older versions out there for free.
Well that concludes it for now all the links will be posted up tommorow

Try searching "find chuck Norris" In the Google search bar, then click I'm feeling lucky, and see what comes up. If you're too lazy to search for it just click on the picture and it has all the funny information Highlighted.

- Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit enter. Type “network.http” in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
- Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
- Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
- Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a number like 30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at once.
- Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
Limit RAM usage. If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us. Again, go to about:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. It’s set to 50000, but you can lower it, depending on how much memory you have. Try 15000 if you have between 512MB and 1GB ram.
Reduce RAM usage further for when Firefox is minimized. This setting will move Firefox to your hard drive when you minimize it, taking up much less memory. And there is no noticeable difference in speed when you restore Firefox, so it’s definitely worth a go. Again, go to about:config, right-click anywhere and select New-> Boolean. Name it “config.trim_on_minimize” and set it to TRUE. You have to restart Firefox for these settings to take effect.

I had been searching the web for a Garage band alternative for windows when i came upon Mixcraft. I have tried tons of other sound mixers and none of them where very good. I launched Mixcraft and I immediately knew that it was the windows alternative. Mixcraft's interface is almost identical to garage band, and if you have never used garage band you will probaly not notice a big difference. It has over 1500 clips of music for you to use in creating your song. You can also add effects like echo, reverb, distortion, pitch shift, pan, and many others. Unfortunately Mixcraft is $39.99, but if you search on youtube there are other ways of getting the full version that tech world dose not support of take responsibility for.
If you are planning on downloading Mixcraft I would recommend an 2.5GHz Pentium 4 or higher as playing more than 4 or 5 tracks at one can be very processor intensive. If i play 8 tracks st once on my 2.2GHz Core Two duo it uses 80% processor. And if you want all of the clips the application will take up about 85Mb of hard drive space.

are given three laptops to try to hack into a sony Vaio, Fujistu U810, and a Macbook Air. The first day was unsuccessful by all three contestants but the second day Charlie Miller won the $10,000 Prize and a Macbook Air by hacking into it first.
It didn't take much time. Within 2 minutes, he directed the contest's organizers to visit a Web site that contained his exploit code, which then allowed him to seize control of the computer. Miller is best known as one of the researchers who first hacked Apple's iPhone last year. Miller said the weakness is in Safari. The winner of last years competitiontook home the prize by finding a weakness in Quicktime.

As many of you Windows Vista users may know windows vista Service Pack 1 was released March 18, 2008. Due to many torrent and other downloading sources many users downloaded the update as much as a month early. For those of you that installed the update you will already know that SP1 did not add any new features because it was all code updates. SP1 improved Compatibility, reliability,copy speeds, and hundreds of other minor problems. Many where unhappy due to the fact that SP1 was supposed to come out mid 2007, but was pushed back to early to mid 2008. Overall SP1 was a good update but I personally did not notice any of the change other than the copy speeds. Driver compatibility and reliability are things that you don't really notice as much as they are things you don't really think about.
Microsoft did good on SP1 but hopefully SP2 will be on time and have more features and have more compatibility.

This weekend Circuit city's Ad included a Purple iPod Nano. Apple's current line of iPod nanos come in silver, blue, green, black, pink, and (PRODUCT) RED. This is obviously suggesting that Apple is going to release a Purple iPod. The addition of a purple option to the iPod nano would make the iPod Shuffle lineup a complete subset of the iPod nano colors.

Well as you know i'm soon to join the apple family and have my current mind set to an 24 inch i-mac core 2 extreme 2.8 ghz 4gb ram 500 or 750 gb hardrive mac but.... Ya theres a but the question after the total of the imac being around 2,900 do i go for the all in one I-mac or go for a base Mac Pro at 2,700 and add a 500gb hard drive etc for around 2,900. Though the fall back is that with the pro I won't have a monitor as the imac is one, and the apple display would make me fish out another 599$ as i dont wanna use my crt on the beatiful pro though... I can buy like a 20-23 inch for around 250$ +. So i can save bucks on buying a different monitor but i would have to spend money to get a monitor if that makes any sense at all lol. Though with the pro i can get 3rd party ram,drives, etc to max it out toward the future so in the end it kinda equals out or should i get the i-mac then the pro later on. Know that i'm a first time switcher and i don't wanna start out small like i would rather have a powerful machine that can show me the power of osx and a mac though for a switcher the pro would be like the ultimate so i'm thinking i-mac | macbook pro| some old macintoshes like g4 etc | the on to mini or pro like go from there so i get a real feel or i can just get the imac-mb pro- then the pro and rotate from there as you see as time and sponsors grow revenue will. So please I would love to here your feeddback comment or email me at email@example.com
Thanks for reading

So i'm starting off with Google's release plans of "Android" the SDK (Software Development Kit) OS for mobile/Smart Phones. The target is to make the sdk so widely used and pre-loaded on phones that it creates a "G-Phone" by the os itself. So something definatley to look forward to in the future.
The video below will explain most of it the links and additional notes will be posted below
Remember to rate the blog and if you wanna request a question,video etc you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Heres the link to the video
Googles Android OS/SDK
Heres some of the notes i had typed up
Sergey Brin and Steve Horowitz
SDK NOT PHONE
G-Phone Smart OS
Linux Kernel 2.6-Drivers and Security
10mil OpenSourced Devlop Aps
Touch/SmartPhones/Older and Newer models
3G High Graphic
sgl lite -data storage
Web Kit - Core-Browser/Safari
Daltic VM-Android Runtime- CPU,Battery
.DEX File-Byte Code/Better Life,Memory
Core Libary -Java- UTILITES
App Framework-Java Lang. Apps
API-Application Programming Interfaces
Location Manager-Maps Current Location
App send to other Android
Notification Manager Apps-Notes-SMS-Events-Internet
Input Methods -Different Models
Map View/Web-Render Google- Apps Geo Data
Developers Toolkit-Open Expandable
Apps EQuality-3rd Party,Default can be replaced
So as you see, the sdk is well in devlopment and you can produce your own apps/programs via Java, and send them in for use of Android. Built with high end graphics and open for devlopment while still built on a tough linux-kernel. Talk of a G-Phone was obselete as google is targeted to make this market by spreading the os across many phones to build a cult of G-Phone. It'll handle older/New/Current models of phones with certain touch and non-touch phone features. So something that has much saving in and investment as well as devlopment towards the future and something to keep your eye on in the years of technology.
Enjoy and always thanks for reading/watching

Well looking into the future, I'm hoping soon to join the Apple Co. Macintosh Family by upgrading from Windows to OSX , Leopard of course and use a whole new machine known as the mac.
I will be upgrading to the I-Mac 2.8GHZ 24 inch, 2GB RAM (Upgraded to 4 manually) reg-ular standard hardrive + Acessories etc. I can't wait till I make the money for the I-mac to have a powerful desktop to handle my needs and work. After that i'm still planning to gain the full mac experience by moving to other areas such as moving to portables , such as the macbook pro and later for the future the air. I'll be using the software and accessories to get acustomed to the mac like the mighty mouse and keyboard bother wired/wireless also software such as Iwork, Video Editing Software etc.
So I can't wait till I get to experience the macintosh and apple experience as well as software etc and I'll update you on other news on it i just have to manage my budget through the future.
