FBI says the Internet may go out on Monday due to DNS Malware

Written by ATLcomputerdude. Posted in All Tech.

It’s the end of the world as we know it, at least for a day. The FBI has announced it has found DNS Malware on several domains and will be shutting down the affected sites Monday, July 9th.  This is the result of a two year investigation called Operation Ghost Click, which the FBI arrested six Estonians who had crafted a sophisticated fraud ring targeting the advertising industry.  What does this mean for the everyday Joe?  It means you could be playing Solitaire at work on Monday instead of making sales. Also, for those who were born after 1995, you will get a glimpse of the “old world”.  Don’t be surprised to see horse and cart in the streets, rotary dial phones, and soft serve ice cream.

Add Twitter search to Google Search results

Posted in All Tech.

Few months back Google announced that they would stop the Realtime search partnership with Twitter as Twitter had its own concerns. And now that Google is doing well with Google+, personal search results are introduced that leverages content from your Circles, and highlights them along with organic search results.

Its a great value add to search, but not everyone is a Google+ user and not everyone likes to have personal search results. Instead, you might want to bring back the Twitter search results. If you’re among those, you’re lucky, coz a Chrome Extension lets you do exactly that.

Sidebar for Google Search modifies your Search results by placing a customizable sidebar on the right. You can choose to display results from

Display your Profile Picture in Google Search Results

Posted in All Tech.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JUNE 06: A Google employee...


If you write a blog or have a website where authors can contribute stories, here’s a new feature in Google – Authorship – that you’ll find very hard to ignore (and you should not).

Google can now display your name as well as your profile picture in search results next to stories that you may have written. The picture will in turn link to your Google Profile page. You may want to see this page on Google for a live example.

What’s the advantage?

As a content creator, this is an important feature for you because you can now indirectly claim authorship of your content on Google search pages.

There’s another advantage as well – your Google CTRs may improve. That’s because a Google page is often chock-full of text and thus people might

Google+ Pages Now Open For Businesses, Brands, Places & More

Posted in All Tech.

After launching in late June, Google Plus experienced the fastest start of a social network on

companies started accounts onlyto have them removed — which is
arguably a key reason why Google+ usage has slowed in recent weeks.

But today, Google launched its much-anticipated business accounts, working with a small
handful of brands as “early examples” (including +Breaking News, ). The business

Death to Keyboards & Monitors: the OmniTouch Make any Surface TouchScreen

Posted in All Tech.

We’ve seen how you can use your hand as TouchScreen. However, with the hack finally being mastered with Kinect technology, you can make just any surface touch screen, no matter what.

Microsoft researchers have come up with a way to make devices sensitive to touch input through fabric — for silencing a phone or even entering text without taking the device out of a pocket or bag.

PocketTouch uses a custom sensor on the back of a smartphone that can detect multitouch gestures even through

Google Plus vs. Facebook Handson

Posted in All Tech.

Google’s social network finally takes shape as Google+ and looking back at Google Wave and buzz we are happy to see that Google had its homework well done.

Disclaimer: Most reviews of Google+ are desperately vague and written by authors who haven’t actually used it. I got to spend nearly 12 hours with it and finally created an opinion of my own, views expressed here are unbiased and to the point.
