A DNS server translates a human address like into a numerical IP address so your computer can take you to the right site. Usually, this takes a few hundred milliseconds to complete so it's barely noticeable, but over time, these milliseconds can really build up. By using OpenDNS and FastCache, you can speed up your internet connection.

OpenDNS runs a distributed network of DNS servers so using it is more reliable. It filters out bad addresses so phishers and spammers can't direct you to their site. OpenDNS also detects typos in the URLs you enter so entering craigslist.og leads you to A piece of software called FastCache takes care of the problem of speed. It stores the IP address that is returned by your DNS server so your computer doesn't have to request it every time you want to go to a particular site, saving a few hundred milliseconds each time.

To set it up:

1. Once you install and start FastCache, you configure your computer to use it by Start->Control Panel->Network Connections.
2. Right click on the connection you're using and go to Properties.

3. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.

4. Choose "Use the Following DNS server addresses" enter as the primary.

5. Click OK and restart your computer.

6. To configure FastCache to use OpenDNS's servers, enter these IP addresses into it:

Ring Ring!! Its your iphone ringing.

Apple showcased its much-anticipated take on the smart phone – a sleek device with a large screen that combines a phone, an iPod and instant messaging. Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO pulled an iPhone from his jeans pocket at the annual Macworld conference in San Francisco and drew a standing ovation at the end of his speech.Lacking the diminutive keypads found on other smart phones, Apple’s iPhone has a single button and a 3.5-inch touch screen to navigate between playing songs and videos, displaying pictures, typing instant messages and even making phone calls.

Steve Jobs also changed the company name from Apple Computer Inc. to just Apple Inc. to better reflect its transition to a full-scale consumer electronics manufacturer and retailer.Most of what Apple Inc sells now is mobile technology, whether it is iPods or notebooks,and even now desktop Macs.

Two versions of the iPhone will be released in the US in June:

1.A 4Gb version priced at $499 (Rs 22,000 approx)
2.A 8Gb version priced at $599 (Rs 26,000).
Sales are expected to start in Europe by the end of this year, and in Asia in 2008.

About the iPhone

The iPhone is 11.6 millimetres (0.5 inches) thick, has five hours of talk-time and 16 hours for playing music. It also includes a 2-megapixel digital camera, as well as a slot for headphones and a SIM card. It runs Apple’s OS X operating system and has the Safari browser for Web access. It can also send and display e-mail and text messages. Apple will soon partner with Yahoo on Web-based e-mail and with Google on maps.
The phone supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology and can also detect location from Global Positioning System satellites.
To demonstrate the three-in-one device’s processing muscle, Jobs accessed Google maps satellite imaging and, within seconds, zoomed in on the Washington Monument, then the Eiffel Tower. He also phoned a local coffee bar and jokingly ordered 4,000 lattes for his assembled guests.
The phone automatically syncs the user’s media – movies, music, photos – through iTunes on computers running either Mac OS X or Microsoft’s Windows. The device also syncs e-mail, Web bookmarks and any type of digital content stored on a PC.
To make a call, users can tap out the number on an on-screen keypad or scroll through their contacts and dial with a single touch. To zoom in on a photo or Web site, tap twice. To zoom out, tap once with two fingers.

Google and NASA aim for a virtual flight

Your Ad Here

Web surfers may soon be able to explore the canyons of Mars and could also have a virtual flight over the surface of the moon thanks to a deal announced between Google
,National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Ames Research Centre.NASA and Google said they will work together on a wide range of technical problems and will make NASA’s space exploration work more accessible to the public by means of a series of projects.

One project would let viewers see details of Mars and Earth’s moon in a format similar Google Earth.

Eventually,the second project will aim to offer real-time weather visualisation and forecasting, high-resolution 3D maps of the moon and Mars, and real-time tracking of the International Space Station from the screen of any computer with Internet access.

The collaboration marks another step in a partnership announced 15 months ago when Google unveiled plans to build a 1 million-square-foot campus at the NASA center, located a few miles south of the company’s Mountain View headquarters.

YouTube to share revenues with users.

Your Ad Here

Chad Hurley, Co-founder of YouTube, said on Saturday that the successful site will start sharing revenue with its millions of users.
Hurley, who along with the site’s Co-founders sold YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion in November, said one of the major innovations the site is working on is a way to allow users to be paid for content.

“We are getting an audience large enough where we have an opportunity to support creativity, to foster creativity through sharing revenue with our users,” Hurley said at the World Economic Forum. “So in the coming months, we are going to be opening that up.”
No details of how much users would be paid, or what mechanism would be used are out.So start uploading videos and share with people.

Google reaches the stars

Your Ad Here

Google has already secured its flag on Earth,Moon and Mars.This time the internet search giant is planning to get the Google flag spread over the Universe.The internet search company has struck a partnership with some scientists to build a
huge sky-scanning telescope, to help all the internet surfers to access digital footage of asteroids, supernovas and distant galaxies.

"“Frankly, I could see the day when they would be our sort of window to the general public",said Donald Sweeney, manager of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope( LSST), on Friday.

The 8.4-metre LSST is expected to survey the sky from 2013 . Its goal is to continuously scan space, taking a series of 15-second exposures that allow it to cover the sky every three nights.It is also said that the telescope will open “a movie-like window” on nearby asteroids and far-off exploding stars, and might try to help unveil the mysterious “dark energy” which is believed to fuel the universe'’s expansion.

Yet the budget has to be decided but I think is budget wouldn't be a problem for Google.Google spokesman Jon Murchinson said, "“I don'’t think we entered into this partnership with an eye on how we’d monetise our participation."
