My first Sony experience is with my Sony Digital Handycam


Nowadays, there are plenty of products and technologies. Sony evolves into more interesting stuffs from electric rice cooker, first magnetic recorder, first transistor radio, Trinitron colour TV, Walkman personal stereo, Handycam videocamera, Playstation, Blu-ray Disc recorder to Playstation 3.

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.
Consequently, a friend of mine asked me to record some clips of their friends from New York. I refused his request because I was not ready to take a shot. He said it would be okay, the important is that they will have something to bring and remember when they go back home. Then, I recorded some clips of the boy named Kesnel. As you can see on the video clips, the boy is holding some roosters and taking photos to some pigs. Kesnel, a boy from New York had much fun of those animals he saw and touched. I could not imagine how much he liked animals. Anyway, animals like live pigs and roosters are rare to them. Hence, if I have a chance to be in the US, I would love and appreciate also seeing wild animals in Bronx Zoo, New York such as bears and lions. I rarely see said animals here except if you will pay for an entrance fee in the zoo. New York? Huhh! How I wish I could go there with them, not with the animals. lolz.

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.

Hacking Airport Wi-Fi

Richard Farina booted up his computer on an American Airlines flight in October from New York to San Francisco. It was one of the first commercial flights to offer wireless Internet service. Within a couple minutes of reaching 10,000 feet, Farina was snooping the airwaves with the ability to see what his fellow passengers were doing without having to leave his cramped middle seat.
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.

Interview With A Cyborg

Meet Gordon, a robot controlled by a living brain. The future of treatment for stroke and brain disease may never be the same.
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.

Economic Bust, Cybercrime Boom

The first ripples of a growing wave of cybercrime may be appearing.
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.

Favicon...does it work?


I tried to figure it out if my favicon showed up before the URL. Yes, it worked on my PC and I found it nice. But im not so sure if this will work to other websites. Please make some comments if you see an icon before the URL which is the same on the image shown. If you see my favorite icon, then I made it right or if not there is something wrong with the codes. This is just a trial of a frustrated programmer. lolz

Favorite Icon on URL

This is a tiny icon that I made. I want to put and add this icon on my blogspot URL but I don't know where to put and add any code on blogspot "edit html". This icon is called a "favicon". Favicon can be seen before the URL as a little picture or logo of your blog or website. Anyone knows how to put this favicon? I think no one knows where and how to put this favicon on blogspot URL. hehehe. Well, if you know how to crawl it, teach me how. :) I haven't seen where to place it on at "edit html". Even If I put this image to a hosting site still it won't work because the ".ico" extension is not supported. (Hahay! kapoy oi.) Im tired of this stuff. But anyway, I will let you know If someone will share his idea of putting this stuff. If I can make this, I will show you how.

Foo Fighters

Having commemorated their tenth anniversary with a year-plus run commencing with a double studio album hailed by the New York Times as "an unexpected magnum opus," a sold out arena tour built on that first disc's rock foundation followed by a toned down and intimate theater trek that highlighted the softer side showcased on that record's second half and capped off by a headlining gig at London's Hyde Park for a crowd of 85,000, the question looms larger than any in the Foo Fighters' career to date: What do they do for an encore?
All I can say is "Hail yeah!" I like this band. Former guitarist of Nirvana climbs up to become the famous guitarist/vocal of Foo Fighers "Ain't it the life" Dave Grohl.

Home Security

In this paranoid, hyper-technological age, it's easy to turn your home into a stealthy cyber-fortress. Forget about installing steel shutters, unsightly bars and razor wire. Today's technology can provide more security, without turning your home into a prison.And now might be a good time to assess your options. Rising unemployment rates and falling city budgets are a recipe for an uptick in crime. And as crime grabs more attention, it becomes more important to keep a low profile. "I'm against underground homes, bunker-style homes, fortress-style steel shutters--it just attracts notoriety," says Joel Skousen, author of The Secure Home and a number of other survival books.

Cookies For Your Cellphone

Cookies -- Heard about it. Nahh! This is not a crisp baked cake that you're thinking. You might be wondering why there is a cookie on the cellphone? Same as a cake inside the refrigerator. lolz! A cookies are computer file containing user information: a computer file containing information about a user that is sent to the central computer with each request. The server uses this information to customize data sent back to the user and to log the user's requests. Hungry of cookies! Beware!
Soon your phone might share a lot of information about you with advertisers. And although that might make you nervous, some advertisers hope it will also unleash a flood of more targeted, and thus more useful, ads.
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.

Android's Reboot Problem

Google's Android platform may take things too literally: Users of T-Mobile's new Android-based G1 phone have discovered that if they type the word "reboot" into a text message or email, the phone will take it as a command and automatically reboot.
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.

What a buck at Starbucks!

Sipping a cup of cappuccino at Starbucks is an addictive way of forgetting your problems while you're inside the cafe. You will feel the good ambiance as well as the aroma of their expensive taste of frothy milky coffee with espresso. Once you're done sipping the hot espresso or swallowing the capuccino, time for you to recollect again the problems you have in life. wahahaha...It's better to wear a mask inside the coffee shop so that nobody will recognize how delightful you are inside. Crazy indeed! hehehaha

uLead Studio 8 Vs Sony Vegas Studio 9

Actually I don't have an idea with these stuffs until one day a friend of mine asked a help from me about video editing. What I did, I went to my other friends and bought a software from him. Although, ulead 8 is an old version software. This was my first movie editing software. I learned a little about it and found it interesting. You can visit some of my videos on Youtube. Some were made using MovieMaker and most were from uLead Studio 8. Click these some of my vids, skaterboy, Celine Dion and Bee Gees and more. If you know a liitle about photoshop I would surely say that uLead would be easy for you to learn as long as you have patience and determination. To indulge you more, If you know how to explore the user friendly XP, uLead is a perfect match for you to learn and explore too.
Sony Vegas Studio 9 is the video editing software that I want to learn and explore it more. This software is quite complicated. As what I've said I need more time to learn this stuff. I found this software very interesting. There are lots of plug-ins and usage especially the media effects. Im sure you like to buy this If you want to compile and record the events of your life.

Billboard


The power of adobe photoshop CS3. You can enhance the image. You can edit a picture and put it anywhere you like in crowded places even in a billboard.

Where The Streets Have No Name

This boy baptized in the name of "my precious" (from the lord of the ring). He leaves under the bridge. He is friendly but he won't hesitate to ask a food from you when his stomach is throbbing from pain. He was my friend during the time when I was working there near our place. I considered him a funny boy because of his funny voice. Sounds and looks like he is a "my precious" character.

All computers need internet security

Home users can lose valuable personal data with one click to the wrong website. Children trading games also exchange viruses unknowingly. You receive an email requesting an update to your payment details, and a hacker gains access to your bank account. A backdoor is installed on your machine, and your PC becomes a zombie, spewing out spam. Be careful and be attentive.

Virus

a self-duplicating computer program that spreads from computer to computer, interfering with data and software. Just as biological viruses infect people, spreading from person to person, computer viruses infect personal computers (PCs) and servers, the computers that control access to a network of computers. Some viruses are mere annoyances, but others can do serious damage. Viruses can delete or change files, steal important information, load and run unwanted applications, send documents via electronic mail (e-mail), or even cripple a machine’s operating system (OS), the basic software that runs the computer.

A Clear Mandate For Obama

Hungry for a change in the nation's direction, voters swept Sen. Barack Hussein Obama into the White House tonight, making him the first African-American elected president of the United States. Obama won by a commanding margin, taking at least 349 of 538 electoral votes from Republican challenger Sen. John McCain, according to projections by television networks, well above the 270 needed for victory. McCain conceded the election just after 11 p.m. ET.
"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."

Crashing the iPhone

Italian systems engineer Piergiorgio Zambrini won fame and money last year when he created "Ziphone," the first widespread application that unlocked iPhones to run on mobile carriers other than AT&T. Now he's making another bid for the spotlight by revealing a bug that can crash the iPhone and, he says, other devices including iPods and Apple computers.
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.

Google Declares Election (Search) Winners

BURLINGAME, CALIF. - Barack Obama may have pulled ahead in the popular vote for the U.S. presidency Tuesday evening. But on the Internet, the Black Panthers, The Drudge Report, Ben & Jerry's, Sean Hannity and--of course-- Barack Obama jokes were the early winners according to Google.
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.

What is HTML?

In computer science, the standard text-formatting language since 1989 for documents on the interconnected computing network known as the World Wide Web. HTML documents are text files that contain two parts: content that is meant to be rendered on a computer screen; and markup or tags, encoded information that directs the text format on the screen and is generally hidden from the user. HTML is a subset of a broader language called Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), which is a system for encoding and formatting documents, whether for output to a computer screen or to paper.
I know a little about HTML. I learned this from the company where I worked before as an OJT. Those were the basic knowledge which they taught me of creating a simple website. I love to explore and study about programming languages that time, the reason why for not pursuing it because I dont have my own PC until now. It would be great if someone would like to help me to continue my studies about programming. Anyone would like to sponsor? PHP, .net, C#, SQL, Perl, etc..Huhh! I wish to know and learn these stuffs.

Top-Earning Dead Celebrities

While things might be topsy-turvy in the financial markets above ground, it's still a bull market in the boneyard. The 13 famous names that make up our Top-Earning Dead Celebrities earned a combined $194 million over the last 12 months. Topping the list for the second year running, is the former King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley. Without so much as lifting a finger, the Memphis Flash earned a whopping $52 million in the last year. That's more than some of the music industry's biggest living acts command--Justin Timberlake pulled in $44 million last year; Madonna $40 million.
Elvis is known of his music until today's generation since he is the former King of Rock 'n' Roll. I am wondering why the name of Kurt Cobain was not on the list since he is one of the most influential persons in the music industry even he was six feet under. Kurt popularized the genre of grunge music, up to this days lot of his fans admire his music.

Google Android Cellphone

If you have a Nokia, Motorola, Samsung or Sony Ericsson cellphone, you've likely gazed upon the work of The Astonishing Tribe (TAT). The Swedish technology and design firm has spent the past six years beautifying user software on millions of cellphones.TAT is in the spotlight again as Google's design partner on the G1, the first cellphone powered by Google's new mobile platform, Android. Forbes.com asked Per Gustafsson, a TAT co-founder and designer, and Daniel Johansson, one of TAT's lead designers for the G1, about the firm's influences and collaborating with Google.

This is really amazing. I wish could use and have this newest cellphone ever by Google in the near future. Im sure this is more prettier and convenient compare to other branded and expensive cellphones.
