Yahoo! Inc. -- Major global Internet search engine, based in Sunnyvale, California. Launched in 1995, Yahoo! was the first online navigational guide to the World Wide Web. It began as a student hobby and evolved into a global brand, used freely by millions of people. Its principal source of revenue is from advertising. Yahoo! also offers a comprehensive network of online services for Web users, including free e-mail and instant messaging, chat rooms, maps and driving directions, spam filters, and virus scanners.Yahoo! was created by David Filo and Jerry Yang while both were studying electrical engineering at Stanford University in California. In February 1994 they set up a Web site that listed other Web sites, in order to keep track of their personal interests on the Internet. A broader, public need for a single place to find useful Web sites soon became clear, and word spread from friends to what quickly became a significant and loyal audience within the closely knit Internet community.The lists Filo and Yang devised soon became too long and unwieldy, and so they introduced categories, and then subcategories, thus creating a customized database that is the basic concept of Yahoo! Filo and Yang also developed software to help them efficiently locate, identify, and edit material stored on the Internet. By the autumn of 1994 Yahoo! was receiving 1 million page views per day.
GiggleYohoo -- a dummy site owned, designed and modified by intel828c, based in Davao City, Philippines but not made in China. The site was activated on December 14, 2008. GiggleYohoo was transformed and derived from the names of two gigantic search engines, Google and Yahoo. The owner has intention neither to ruin the two gigantic sites nor to compete with. Hahaha. Honestly, the owner loves the two gigantic search engines. The owner is a simple true filipino, a part time blogger and a full time jobless engineer. GiggleYohoo is a site where fun and excitement get connected. Let us laugh and shout with GiggleYohoo.

Web researcher Net Applications recently discovered that between 11% to 30% of traffic streaming out of Google's Mountain View, Calif., office is stripped clean of the usual identifying information that accompanies such traffic. That begs the question: What secret is it that Google doesn't want the rest of the Web to know?

Furthermore, three (3) years ago my sister bought me a Sony handycam because I love photography. She surprised me with this stuff. I could not believe she had an expensive birthday present for me. I am very blessed having a sister like her whose been working abroad. She can buy precious gifts for her brother. hehehe
On the other hand, I considered my Sony digital handycam as one of the best gadget of Sony products. I’m using this stuff for 3 years and still keep on working. My Sony handycam is my bread and butter. Somehow, it gives me some ways of gaining more friends. For every successful shot comes a humble smile. Although, those videos I made were just part of my hobbies as a novice “videographer”, it keeps on reminding me to become more enthusiastic and progressive. I am learning more with this product, thus, giving me extra miles to pursue my dedication. Nice right? Good job to my Sony handycam.
Moreover, my handycam taught me how to embrace and value the unforgettable moments of my life. I would simply say that Sony technology help change our lives for the better. By the way, the soundtrack I made as background to my entry, entitled "Hands Down" says that Sony is a technology that we should praise for making our lives easier like no other.
Those clips you have seen were taken by me. I am neither a professional photographer nor a video editor. I just love photo editing and doing some motion cuts. Eventually, learning is a power of fulfilling our dreams comes true. Well, the 18th birthday of my friend was taken by my Sony handycam. I captured and edited those happy moments they had on her birthday, yet all of the captured events were all precious. I am glad being part of my friend’s party as a cameraman. hehehe. I made them all happy because of the movie I did for them. Thanks to my Sony handycam. The priceless moments will never be vanished.
Nevertheless, if you want to treasure valuable moments together with your family, do not forget to bring along with your Sony digital camera or a handycam. Otherwise, you will be missing half of your life. My Sony Handycam experience definitely gave significance in my life just like the Sony’s World’s First Smallest, Lightest and Slimmest Full HD Camcorder: TG1 Handycam, another amazing gadget which will help me capture more precious moments for my friends, relatives and love ones.

Farina isn't a bad guy. He was just doing his job as a so-called white-hat hacker for AirTight Networks, a manufacturer of wireless intrusion protection hardware and software. AirTight's chief executive, David King, sends hackers out for unsolicited security assessments. Earlier this year he dispatched Farina and a few other of his 100-plus employees to collect wireless security data at 20 U.S. airports and a few abroad. They found rampant phony Wi-Fi hot spots created by phishers and, at several large airports, plenty of open or insecure networks run by critical operations such as baggage handling and ticketing. Almost all public networks allowed data such as user names and passwords to pass through the air unencrypted. Only 3% of people used something more secure.
Kevin Warwick was a normal English teenager who liked riding motorcycles after seeing Steve McQueen jump the barbed wire fence in the film The Great Escape. In 1970, at 16, he left school for an apprenticeship at British Telecom installing and planning telephone systems. He studied electronic engineering at Aston University when microprocessors were first introduced. At 28 he received a Ph.D. in computer engineering and held a research post at Imperial College in London. He taught robotics and computing at three different universities prior to being awarded a prestigious chair in cybernetics at the University of Reading at the age of 33.

In the physical world, the connection between declining business and crime is simple enough: As the above-ground economy suffers, the underground economy swells. The connection between economic trouble and cybercrime is trickier to prove. But as the economy slows, some online crime watchers see signs that a portion of newly unemployed skilled tech workers are turning to the theft and exploitation of sensitive data even as the existing cybercriminal economy is finding new ways to exploit consumer confusion around the banking meltdown.

This week, Ringleader Digital, a New York-based mobile ad network is launching an experimental version of what it calls a "media stamp"--a technology it hopes will become as widespread as "cookies" on the Web.
Cookies are one of the behind-the-scenes keys to unlocking the value of digital advertising. Though they are little more than small software files that Web page servers attach to users' computers to identify them, they are nearly ubiquitous and enable advertisers to track users wherever they travel on the Web.
Wireless carriers typically prevent outside firms from embedding such information in mobile devices. "The carriers strip off third-party cookies," says Bob Walczak, chief executive of Ringleader Digital. To get around the carriers, Ringleader Digital embeds its digital stamp in servers rather than browsers.

The problem arose because Android sends all text entered into the device directly to the operating system, with super-user priviliges. That's a major security flaw, and both users and the company are lucky it was discovered before someone could maliciously exploit it. Google is aware of the bug and already pushing out a fix according to CNET's Steven Shankland.
But let this be a reminder to early adopters everywhere. When a company puts out the first product of a new product line, there are always potential hazards. When the new product line is also an entirely new line of business for the company, you really need to be careful.

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer," Obama told a crowd of tens of thousands in his acceptance speech in Chicago.
"It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to America."

Zambrini planned to publish news about the bug Monday--although he's saving the technical details for Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ), he says--at least for now.
You've gotta love Google (nasdaq: GOOG - news - people ). A quick peek at Google's "hot trends" link is better than exit polls for giving a sense of what's on the minds of most Americans on Tuesday evening as polling stations across the U.S. begin to wind down.
"Who's winning the election" is among the top queries tapped into the omniscient Google. For reasons that only the man behind the curtain at the Googleplex could possibly know, that question pops you over to the site digitalalchemy.com. Not surprisingly, it has no answer but simply leads you to more links.
Many people phrased the question this way: "Who's winning Obama or McCain?" Those folks, too, are ending up at DigitalAlchemy.

As a child prodigy Mozart toured Europe and became widely regarded as a miracle of nature because of his musical gifts as a performer of piano, harpsichord, and organ and as a composer of instrumental and vocal music. His mature masterpieces begin with the Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat Major (Jeunehomme, 1777), one of about a dozen outstanding concertos he wrote for piano. Also successful as an opera composer, Mozart wrote three exceptional Italian operas to texts by Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte: Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro, 1786), Don Giovanni (1787), and Così fan tutte (All Women Do So, 1790). They were followed in 1791 by his supreme German opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).

The collider's ALICE experiment will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions.
The Large Hadron Collider will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions. Some have expressed fears that the project could lead to the Earth's demise -- something scientists say will not happen. Still, skeptics have filed suit to try to stop the project. It even has a rap dedicated to it on YouTube.
Scientists say the collider is finally ready for an attempt to circulate a beam of protons the whole way around the 17-mile tunnel. The test, which takes place Wednesday, is a major step toward seeing if the the immense experiment will provide new information about the way the universe works.
"It's really a generation that we've been looking forward to this moment, and the moments that will come after it in particular," said Bob Cousins, deputy to the scientific leader of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, one of six experiments inside the collider complex. "September 10 is a demarcation between finishing the construction and starting to turn it on, but the excitement will only continue to grow."
The collider consists of a particle accelerator buried more than 300 feet near Geneva, Switzerland. About $10 billion have gone into the accelerator's construction, the particle detectors and the computers, said Katie Yurkewicz, spokewoman for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, which is host to the collider.
In the coming months, the collider is expected to begin smashing particles into each other by sending two beams of protons around the tunnel in opposite directions. It will operate at higher energies and intensities in the next year, and the experiments could generate enough data to make a discovery by 2009, experts say. Check out the collider complex's six detectors »
Testing the unknownExperts say the collider has the potential to confirm theories about questions that physicists have been working on for decades including the possible existence of extra dimensions. They also hope to find a theoretical particle called the Higgs boson, which has never been detected, but would help explain why matter has mass.
The collider will recreate the conditions of less than a millionth of a second after the Big Bang, when there was a hot "soup" of tiny particles called quarks and gluons, to look at how the universe evolved, said John Harris, U.S. coordinator for ALICE, a detector specialized to analyze that question.
Since this is exploratory science, the collider may uncover surprises that contradict prevailing theories, but which are just as interesting, said Joseph Lykken, theoretical physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
"When Columbus sails west, he thought he was going to find something. He didn't find what he thought he was going to find, but he did find something interesting," said Lykken, who works on the Compact Muon Solenoid, one of six experiments inside the collider complex.
Why should the layperson care about this particular exploration? Years ago, when electrons were first identified, no one knew what they were good for, but they have since transformed our entire economy, said Howard Gordon, deputy research program manager for the collider's ATLAS experiment.
"The transformative effect of this research will be to understand the world we live in much better," said Gordon, at Brookhaven National Laboratory. "It's important for just who we are, what we are."
Black hole fears are "baloney"
Fears have emerged that the collider could produce black holes that could suck up anything around them -- including the whole Earth. Such fears prompted legal actions in the U.S. and Europe to halt the operation of the Large Hadron Collider, alleging safety concerns regarding black holes and other phenomena that could theoretically emerge.
Although physicists acknowledge that the collider could, in theory, create small black holes, they say they do not pose any risk. A study released Friday by CERN scientists explains that any black hole created would be tiny, and would not have enough energy to stick around very long before dissolving. Five collider collaborators who did not pen the report independently told CNN there would be no danger from potential black holes.
John Huth, who works on the collider's ATLAS experiment, called such fears "baloney" in a recent interview, and noted that in normal physics, even if the black hole were stable, it could just pass through the Earth without being detected or without interacting at all.
"The gravitational force is so weak that you'd have to wait many, many, many, many, many lifetimes of the universe before one of these things could [get] big enough to even get close to being a problem," said Huth, professor of physics at Harvard University.
At the scene
When visiting the general-purpose detectors CMS and ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider, Lykken said he was awed that 30,000 tons of electronics would have to work without anyone fiddling with them all the time.
"It just blows you away to look at these things and realize they're not only incredibly complex and huge, but they have to actually work," he said. "They have to work without people banging on them all day because they're sitting underground all by themselves."
With twice as much iron as the Eiffel Tower, CMS will run at full power for the first time in conjunction with the first beam test Wednesday, Lykken said. The magnet serves to bend particles, whizzing by at almost the speed of light, to figure out what kind of particles they are.
Although the detector's parts weigh thousands of tons, in previous trials of CMS at lower power, the magnet actually yanked certain parts around because of its power, Lykken said.
"You're talking about such incredible power inside both the accelerator and detectors that you never really know until you turn it all on what's going to happen," he said.
Scientists around the world are pumped for the first beam. Fermilab, the high energy physics lab in Batavia, Illinois, and major collaborator on the Large Hadron Collider, will be host of a "pajama party" at 1:30 a.m. CT that includes a live connection to CERN to follow the action.
Cousins believes that because the collider pushes the frontiers of science and technology, it would be "amazingly impressive if it works the first try," he said in a phone interview from CERN. Any little disturbance of the magnetic field anywhere in the tunnel could stop the beam from making it all the way around.
Still, after a 25-year wait, he's not complaining. "I personally will be fine if there's some problem that has to be overcome in the next few days," he said.
