Google Chrome OS

Google simply cannot keep out of the OS wars and as their entry to battle Windows, they have announced a version of their Google Chrome OS for release on the rising tablet PC market. There is still a lot of work that has to be done for this to become reality for being open-sourced
it is a headache to standardize. But Google has confirmed that it is no longer a rumor and it is considered to be one of the company’s primary goals this year.

Their browser version of Chrome has been out for a while and it has had it’s fair share of bugs, versions and fixes but it is steadily making it’s way. The fact is that Google has managed to do away with most of the overhead that takes space and time for Windows to load streamlining the system for optimal performance. The OS would be coming out soon, though Google is keeping it quiet on when and how it would be released.

Keeping Your Family Porn-Free

I maintain a blog site as a part-time job, and having a 2 kids in the house has made me a little more aware of the dangers lurking in the shadows of cyberspace. The internet has been a powerful tool not just for data processing and storage, but for global communication as well. Millions of text data and images are being posted online everyday. So how does one filter the good from the bad at home?

There are many applications that can help you block pornographic from being displayed on your computer They use distinctive filter methods that analyze whether a URL is safe for viewing or not. However, it may not be so easy to filter images as it is URLs. There are porn sites that allow for the user to type in their emails so pictures can be sent to the address directly, without having to go through their site. This can pose some serious problems for my kids. Good thing there are some pornographic image filters that can analyze images as they are being downloaded, and identify those that are unwanted. The technology can analyze different physical aspects of the images like skin tone, contour, hues, etc. This can act as a reliable personal web nanny, to help block porn images. It is said to be 85%-90% accurate, which is relatively high.

Now I can rest peacefully at night while my laptop is still turned on. I don’t have to worry about my kids sneaking around and having a peak at unsightly images. All they will probably find is the link to the Australia business directory that I have left opened. Having kid-friendly internet access is an effective way to keeping my family porn-free.

North Korea & Internet

Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt arrived in Beijing on Thursday morning from his visit to North Korea. The whole trip has been controversial but Schmidt explained to the reporters that the trip has been productive. He joined the nine member group that included former governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson to negotiate with North Korea to put a stop on missile launches and nuclear tests.

Schmidt is the most notable American businessman who visited the country. He explained that his purpose was to urge North Korea to be open to expanding the use of the internet for it will eventually benefit the citizens. He said “As the world becomes increasingly connected, [North Korea's] decision to be virtually isolated is very much going to affect their physical world, their economic growth and so forth. It will make it harder for them to catch up economically.” There is still no telling if his visit will make any big changes to the freedom of internet in the country.

Everybody blogs!

There are people for whom blogging seems natural: techies, gamers and all those guys in Silicon Valley. What this generalization fails to consider is that active Internet use is rising among the young and not just among males. Women have embraced the web and created content of every kind. Even the elderly have embraced blogging, though to a much lesser extent. Travelers everywhere have found blogs excellent venues for telling stories and giving recommendations. In every case, one find an audience of readers and supporters. Depending on what you talk about and how, there could also be detractors and “haters”, and this is something you have to be prepared for. The cloak of anonymity can lead some people to do nasty things they wouldn’t do if they were identified, and there are privacy issues at every corner. But as bloggers can be anonymous as well, it is really up to you what you want to reveal.
