Less than 900 Days Until Windows XP End of Life

Time running out for Windows XP. Now there are less than 900 days until support Microsoft does not continue for decades-old operating system.

More precisely, there are 893 days until the Redmond company pulled the plug on its predecessor Windows Vista.

In a sense, XP will live on borrowed time, because mainstream support for the operating system ends on 14 April 2009.

But as this is the case with a number of products, XP move the Extended Support phase, which is scheduled to expire on April 9, 2014.

Microsoft warns customers about Alex Guy deadline is near when XP support was "flicked off, and no support Windows XP mean to be a significant risk to your business. After April 8, 2014 there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support online update option or technical content, "he said.

Microsoft made sure to mark the moment that XP support expiration date is 1000 days away, and the company has driven customers to upgrade earlier this week.

On October 25, 2011, XP already 10 years old, but although it is still a major presence in the operating system market.

Like it or not, XP is all but obsolete, and using Windows 7 for example may prove this. It's about time for Windows XP still plans to upgrade.

"It's hard to believe, but ten years have passed since first launched Windows XP, and place of work has changed a slight bit," added Guy.

"Businesses today, large or small, the trend of mainstream not face a decade ago - a highly mobile workforce and distributed, in compliance with new regulations, more consumer devices in the workplace, and an increased emphasis on operational efficiency. Modern workplace requires modern technology to support and embrace all of these changes.

The Harshest Comparison Ever Between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs

Speaking to Jon Stewart's Daily Show this Sunday, Walter Isaacson biographer produces what may be regarded as the most concise yet accurate comparison ever between Microsoft and Apple will eventually Bill Gates Steve Jobs.

In commenting Bill Gates related work, as well as both their role in the early days of the computer industry, Isaacson asserted that the work is art and romantic, while Gates has no trace of the habit.

However, "is Bill Gates awesomely smart," he said, balancing the ratio between the two technology teachers, "he neatly with processor power," he added.

Isaacson continued, saying “[Gates] makes a great business model for Microsoft but he never makes the artistic products. I mean, in the end, he makes the Zune and Steve makes the iPod.”

Image comment: Jon Stewart can't stop laughing at the sound of Isaacson's remarks regarding Gates' embarrassing attept to sell a portable music player that would compete with the iPod

Even though Isaacson made these remarks with a straight face, Stewart burst into laughter, saying “That is the best eulogy I have ever heard in my life!”

Truth be told, the remark is harsh (towards Gates), to say the least, but who can argue that that’s not the case?

The clip is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

Walter Isaacson is the author of the official Steve Jobs biography, a 600+ page-long book that looks at a lifetime of achievements and failures attributed to the American genius who co-created Apple in his parents’ garage with his best friend, Steve Wozniak.

Jobs was on his death bed when Isaacson was interviewing him for the last pages in the book. Little did Isaacson know that he would write one final chapter that he hadn’t planned to pen down - the scene where Jobs admits to the biographer that he is losing the battle with cancer.

Isaacson’s book is available on iTunes in the iBookstore for iPad reading, as well as on Amazon in both e-format and a hardcover version all around the world.

While the hardcover version may be hard to find on bookshelves following the recent death of the Apple co-founder, you should have no trouble obtaining the digital version.

iPad 3 Flagship Feature Is a 'Dense' Display - Report

People familiar with Apple, AOS product roadmap has leaked some interesting information about the next generation iPad which, according to a report, will boast high-density pixel display with a resolution sought from 2048x1536.

This, Äôll hard to get there, says Cnet, AOS resources, but Samsung and LG Display pushing hard to meet the yield rate imposed by Apple Inc. of Cupertino, Calif.-based

Reportedly, the goal is to have a Retina Display-like resolution, which means that the pixel density is so high that your eyes can not identify a single point of sitting next to.

On the iPhone, look at the average distance of about 12 inches, and 326 ppi (pixels per inch) Retina reaching effects. In iPad, viewing distance is greater, because the pixel density is, AOT must be a strong good.

But look at is dense, remain. According to sources related to Asia-based suppliers, showing the nearest iPad manufacturers can get 2048x1536 pixels.

Transmitted 264 ppi or 132 ppi twice iPad 2. This pixel density would result in what Apple calls Retina-quality display.

The only problem with this screen, AOS is difficult to make them in quantity. Per CNET, the source of AOS, "They have a production plan to show 2048x1536 Starting in November .. But only those plans at this point, "the source said, referring to Korea-based LG Display and Samsung.

"It's not a question of making only one, of course, can be done .. The challenge is to make a lot of it, "the source said. "This is a quantum leap in pixel density has not been done before .."

The report said that the LG and Samsung have a plan B, if they are not able to press the volume required by the American electronics makers - 1600x1200 temporary choice.

This screen is also expected to have a brightness of 550 nits. It is quite light, as a typical laptop display panel tops out at about 350 nits.

Why The Black Death Was So Devastating

Scientists can now tell the world what is the main factor that makes plague responsible for many deaths.

The fact that the disease killed many researchers made this name "black death", but until now, the sound is not authorized to certify to the facts of what led to such rapid growth, great.

Scientists have found the answer after they learn some medieval bodies from a cemetery in London.

They were tested in their laboratory plague germs and they are able to say what makes the bacteria responsible for Black Death expansion is so strong.

It seems that DNA Yersinia pestis view of the fact that Europe from the 14th century did not have strong enough immune system to fight the deadly microbes.

"This is the first pandemic Black Death plague human history. People (immunology) a sophisticated and adapted to it, "said Johannes Krause, a highly respected scientist and professor at University of Tuebingen, Germany.

His findings were published on Wednesday, the British journal Nature.

Scientists have determined that, because of their inability to fight microbes, people have no other way to protect themselves against pathogens feared by many, that seems to retain its shape and characteristics of an historic sixth century.

The effect was devastating, because the study proves that no viruses or other types of pain managed to erase from the face of the earth so many individuals.

People living in the 14th century facing the most deadly epidemic ever experienced by mankind.

Its development began in China. Later, he began to perform millions of victims in Europe. From 1347-1351, Black Death kill one of three European populations, and 1 in 12 people worldwide.

Surprisingly, the scientists discovered that microbes are still medieval in connection with the researchers plagues to remain under control at this time.

Never the less, modern can not be compared, in terms of effects, with their fathers are far more formidable.

"Based on the reconstructed genome, we can say that the medieval plague close to the root of all modern humans pathogenic plague strain," concluded Krause.

A Strawberry a Day Keeps Alcohol's Effects Away

Spanish, Italian and Serbian scientists are proud to declare that they found a connection between strawberries and alcohol's negative effects that might turn out to be very useful in the treatment of stomach ulcers.

It is no secret that people who consume alcohol on a regular basis suffer a great deal after their stomach's mucous membrane is carved by alcohol molecules.

In order to test their theory, the team conducted several tests on lab rats. They added strawberry extracts to their daily diet and observed how the substance had a protective effect upon their stomach, keeping it safe from the alcohol's negative impact.
strawberries,stomach ulcers,alcohol,Gastritis,life style, health

The stomach's mucous membranes of rats which ate strawberries were less affected than those of the creatures who didn't receive any fruit of this kind.

Now the scientists try to find ways to apply the same strategy to the human organism.

Researchers want to prove that, after adding strawberries to their daily menu, people will be able to fight stomach illnesses such as Gastritis, which are painful and can be easily avoided by adopting a healthy lifestyle.

They tend to think that, if the treatment showed spectacular result while applied to rats, it will have the ability to reduce the formation of stomach ulcers in the case of human beings, as well.

In the past, scientists were able to correlate Gastritis, the inflammation of the mucous membrane with an increased level of alcohol consumption.

But this is only one cause for this disease. It could also be generated by viral infections or even by some common pills prescribed by doctors, such as aspirin, or treatments against the Helicobacter pylori bacteria.

contain fisetin, an antioxidant which proved to have beneficial effects in relation to Alzheimer's disease and to kidney failure resulting from diabetes, so improving your daily menu with these delicious fruit might not be a bad idea, after all.

RIM Free Apps - Blackberry Free Apps World

RIM Provides Free Apps
Research in Motion (RIM) offered the choice of premium applications for free in an effort to pacify angry customers after the recent service interruption. However, investors do not seem captivated by the free BlackBerry maker sent shares down more than six per cent.

RIM said that the total value of the apps to offer a combined value of U.S. $ 100 million and made available to customers in the coming weeks to BlackBerry App World and continue to be available until 31 December.

The company said that customers in one month the company also offers free technical support.

"Now customers will be offered a contract extension of one month of free technical support available to them, and customers do not currently have a technical support contract will be offered a one-month trial BlackBerry RIM technical support services - enhanced support, at no cost," he said in a statement RIM .

Not quite the crowd pleaser
The move wasn’t entirely successful with RIM shares slumping 6.6 per cent on the NASDAQ and some analysts saying that the move should have come a lot earlier.

IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo told Reuters that despite being late the offer was a clever move because it would help RIM customers to discover the app service and the company had probably struck a deal with app developers to keep costs down.

"For RIM, this is an interesting way to attract users to the App World and incentivise them to search and download apps," Mr Jeronimo told Reuters.

The free apps on offer include games such as Bejeweled, and premium versions of a translation service and the music discovery tool Shazam.

There is a good chance that RIM customers won’t be appeased solely by what’s on offer and with reports that businesses, even in countries unaffected by the outage,  are starting to have second thoughts about the Blackberry RIM may be in for some pain. 

RIM has declined to estimate how much the offer would cost but the financial impact could be quite hefty with compensation potentially reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

According to Reuters, BMO Capital Markets expects RIM’s earnings per share for the quarter could be knocked back between three to five cents in the company had to compensate all carriers and customers for the service disruption

Why Steve Jobs Always Wore a Black Turtleneck

 Why Steve Jobs Always Wore a Black Turtleneck
Steve Jobs has always been known to wear nothing more than regular sneakers, regular jeans, and a black turtleneck shirt. But why he did that was never fully understood. Until now.

An excerpt from Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs, due out this month, reveals that the late Apple co-founder had initially wanted to create a uniform for his entire staff.

After visiting Sony’s headquarters in Japan in the early 1980s, Jobs had realized that uniforms would not only develop a signature style for the company, they would also bond workers to their work environment.

However, that didn't quite pan out as Steve had planned:

“Sony, with its appreciation for style, had gotten the famous designer Issey Miyake to create its uniform,” writes Isaacson. “It was a jacket made of rip-stop nylon with sleeves that could unzip to make it a vest. So Jobs called Issey Miyake and asked him to design a vest for Apple, Jobs recalled, ‘I came back with some samples and told everyone it would great if we would all wear these vests. Oh man, did I get booed off the stage. Everybody hated the idea’.”

So Jobs put to rest his plans to have everyone dressed the same at Apple.

But he didn’t give up his plans to develop a signature style for the company. So what he did was he created the uniform for himself. Isaacson continues:

(As noted by Gawker media, the ending line has an evocative ring to it with Jobs now passed away).

“In the process, however, he became friends with Miyake and would visit him regularly. He also came to like the idea of having a uniform for himself, both because of its daily convenience (the rationale he claimed) and its ability to convey a signature style. ‘So I asked Issey to make me some of his black turtlenecks that I liked, and he made me like a hundred of them’. Jobs noticed my surprise when he told this story, so he showed them stacked up in the closet. ‘That's what I wear’, he said. "I have enough to last for the rest of my life’.”

iOS 5 Jailbreak Released

The infamous iPhone Dev Team has posted a download link for the latest Mac version of Redsn0w (Windows version in the works) which works against iOS 5, the newest mobile OS from Apple.

The Team informs on its blog that redsn0w has been updated to 0.9.9b5 to include the public URLs for the iOS 5 IPSW files for all supported devices.

“This way, first-time iOS5 jailbreakers don’t need to supply the IPSW file manually,” the Team writes.

The hackers confirm that redsn0w currently still provides a ‘tethered’ jailbreak, meaning users will have to always connect their handset to the jailbreak machine when a reboot is necessary. An iPhone 3GS model is the exception.

“It’s still a tethered jailbreak on all except the old-bootrom iPhone3GS, and it doesn’t apply to iPad2 or the upcoming iPhone4S,” the team writes, thus confirming which devices work with the jailbreak utility, and which don’t.

The tinkerers claim they’ve build some of PwnageTool’s functionality into Redsn0w, therefore they are holding off the release of a new PwnageTool version. The main reason is the ‘tethered’ nature of the hack.

According to their blog entry, “The new ‘Custom IPSW’ button on the Extras screen will create a custom IPSW without the baseband update for 4.3.3 or 5.0gm (iPhone3GS and iPhone4 only, for now).”

Jailbreakers are warned to avoid accidental restoration to the stock IPSW after creating the custom one.

The Team’s post ends with a promise to try and deliver normal compatibility for existing ultrasn0w unlockers and a fix to the iBooks issue on jailbroken iOS 5 devices.

iOS 5 is the biggest software update Apple ever released for its mobile OS containing over 200 new features and improvements, including a new Notification system, iMessage, Newsstand, a coll Reminders app, Twtter integration, Camera and Mail improvements, AirPlay mirroring and, of course, iCloud support, to name some of they key additions.

Intel Sandy Bridge-E Boards Have Problems with Large CPU Coolers

Quad-channel memory introduced by new support high performance processor Intel Sandy Bridge-E apparently caused a bit of a problem for motherboard makers wondering how to include support for large CPU coolers without giving up the features.

When Sandy Bridge-E Intel set out to develop the architecture, one of the most important improvement is to bring this chip is support for higher memory bandwidth.

To achieve this, the chip manufacturers settled with the increasing number of channels can support the processor memory and decided to use the quad-channel configuration.

In this theory should be able to provide 33% more bandwidth than the tri-channel memory controller used in the core Nehalem, but adding a fourth channel memory is not as easy as most of us think.

The most important constraint faced by Intel the road is the need to optimize the trace on the motherboard to maintain constant latency between the four DIMMs installed.

Do this for all installed DIMM sockets placed at approximately the same distance from the CPU socket, which causes a drastic design of the motherboard components placed.

I'm sure by now you all saw a X79 board and knew all about the layout used, but what most do not know that placement is that it seems to cause all kinds of problem with large CPU coolers.

Month is designed for use in motherboards with memory installed on only one side of the CPU socket, so it will fit on a cooling board LGA 2011 a long shot, the report SweClockers.

Moreover, the problem is not limited to only one manufacturer of motherboards, but it seems to affect almost all boards are designed LGA 2011 until now.

How big the problem really is still uncertain at this moment in time, because most of the information about LGA 2011 Sandy Bridge-E and platforms are still in NDA, but the user is sure to take lots of care When choosing their parts in such systems.

We will continue to up to date on how things evolve from this point, even the early adopters are advised to go to cooling water as this causes the least amount of guaranteed.

Steve Jobs Was First to Contact Samsung Over Patent Infringement

A key witness in the tablet suit between Apple and Samsung revealed in an Australian court today that former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, was the first to approach the Korea-based electronics maker over possible patent infringements by its products.

According to Dow Jones Newswires, former Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs directly contacted Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. last year with concerns that its products infringed on Apple patented inventions.

The disclosure was made by a key witness in the ongoing patent suits between the two companies.

"The discussions started with contact from him, and then he wasn't involved in meetings beyond that," senior Apple executive Richard Lutton told the federal court in Sydney.

Lutton said that Jobs had expressly approached Samsung because he valued the “deep relationship” his company had with the Korean company. According to the Apple executive, Jobs wanted "to give them a chance to do the right thing".

In the meanwhile, the legal spat between Apple and Samsung continues unchanged.

People familiar with the tablet case say that the Cupertino, California-based iPad maker is seeking an injunction against Samsung to prevent its version 10.1 of its Galaxy Tab from reaching the Australian market.

Apple’s lawyers are trying to convince the court that certain features of the Samsung slate computer don’t do justice to the patents Apple holds for its own tablet computers.

However, there has been a recent turn of events. Korean sources are now reporting that Samsung has signed a patent cross-licensing deal with Microsoft, an alliance that may strengthen Samsung’s arguments in court.

According to industry sources cited by The Korea Times, Samsung and Microsoft have agreed to settle a dispute over the use of patented technologies in the Android OS leveraged by Samsung devices.

The move is expected to bolster a fresh start for the duo, enabling them to focus on rivaling Apple.

“The agreement is a pre-emptive move before the iPhone 5 is released on Oct. 4. Samsung will also significantly boost the sale of its tablets and smartphones thanks to the partnership with MS,” said Koo Ja-woo, an analyst at Kyobo Securities.
