For privacy fans or others who want to keep their computers free of traces of what they’ve been doing online, Google’s Chrome browser is getting an option to make sure Adobe Systems’ Flash Player isn’t getting in the way.

Web sites often store details about a user in small text files called cookies that can record details such as usernames, browsing history, and advertisements that have been seen. But storage abilities in Flash mean that even if a person deletes regular cookies, a Web site could reconstruct particulars from Flash data. There are other storage mechanisms arriving in browsers, too, leading to the term “evercookie,” but Adobe is trying to take care of its responsibilities with a beta of Flash Player 10.3 that lets browsers delete that data.

Now Chrome is getting a checkbox to take advantage of that feature.

“As of this week’s Chrome Dev channel release, you can delete local plug-in storage data (such as Flash LSOs [local storage objects]) from within Chrome by clicking Wrench Tools Clear browsing data and selecting ‘Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data,’” said Chrome programmer Bernhard Bauer in a blog post yesterday. Chrome also can be set to delete such data when people shut down the browser.

So far, Flash is the only known plug-in that takes advantage of the feature, Bauer said.

Mozilla helped Adobe and Google develop the feature, so expect
Firefox, too, to add support at some stage for the Flash data deletion feature.

SOHO Labels 5.0.3

/* Posted April 27th, 2011 at 8:40am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under News    */

Every once in a while, I come across an application that does so much, and so well, that I can’t understand how it can have such a low price. At $40, SOHO Labels 5.0.3 is an unbelievable bargain.

Hundreds of features

Apple’s Address Book does a good job of printing labels and envelopes, but if your labeling needs extend beyond occasional use, a dedicated label application will pay for itself very quickly. SOHO Labels goes far beyond mere label printing, into the realm of scrapbook pages, name badges, disc labels, and more.

The feature list is astounding: it integrates with Apple’s Address Book for mail merge functions (including Groups), and if your list is in a different program such as FileMaker or Excel, you can export your data as a text file and SOHO Labels will automatically identify fields such as name, address, and company. Once the program chooses your data, it can automatically fit that information to your labels, regardless of length.

It can help you create many other kinds of projects, including greeting cards and invitations, file folder labels, name badges, and individually numbered raffle and admission tickets. You can design and print CD or DVD labels and inserts, business cards, and scrapbook pages.

To assist with some of the more difficult technical challenges in printing labels, a printing grid helps you calibrate your printer for perfect paper alignment, an Envelope Wizard helps you orient your envelope properly in your printer, and it lets you begin printing at any label position on a sheet.

SOHO Labels offers direct support for more than 1,500 stock labels from companies including Avery, DYMO, NEATO, HP, Imation, TDK, and more, and for label printers such as the DYMO LabelWriter, Seiko Smart Label Printer, and the Brother Label Printer.

To ensure your design meets the requirements of the United States Postal Service, the program can automatically generate POSTNET and many other kinds of barcodes, and a U.S. Postal Guidelines feature helps you make sure your addresses don’t impinge onto areas reserved for the USPS.

If your designs will be printed elsewhere, you can export them in TIFF, JPEG, PNG, and PDF formats, or send them directly from within the program to a commercial printer for professional printing, with press-ready crop and registration marks.

Template or create from scratch

To get you started, the program includes hundreds of professional Smart Templates and Ready-made designs, with smart fields that automatically place data into the optimal position on your labels, and graphics placeholders that size your imported graphics for you.

To help you find designs and graphics, each has keywords and categories assigned to it. The average home user will likely find the quality of the included designs acceptable, but creative professionals will probably want to create their own. If you’re creating business cards or scrapbook pages, you can also purchase additional iScrapKits from Chronos’ online store.

(Image Caption: Smart Templates not only give you a starting place for your own designs, their text and graphics placeholders format your content for you.)

SOHO Labels’ text handling features are quite advanced. You can define unique Dependency Fields so that if your label has data in a particular field, another field will appear or not. It can even automatically apply upper or lower case to the text and uniformly format phone numbers for you. I cannot overstate the value of the built-in data intelligence of SOHO Labels. It takes almost all the tedious work out of setting up your data.

The application has a full-blown (yet simple) drawing environment that lets you draw shapes, place text on a curve, or fill text or shapes with an image. Grids, guides, and rulers make it easy it align items-it even has alignment guides that let you know when an object you’re dragging is aligned with other objects. You can rotate any object, and the program can automatically make selected objects the same width or height. Optionally, a context-sensitive Smart Inspector window pops up near your selected object. If you know the dimensions you want for an object, you can type them into the inspector.

A perspective tool helps you simulate depth of an object, and you can lock objects or move them to separate layers. In addition, the program not only lets you browse and use images from iPhoto, you can crop them and apply dozens of impressive special effects. And of course, you can import logos, clip art, and photos in popular formats. A Favorites Bin lets you store often-used graphics, shapes, and text for quick reuse.

Advanced typography features let you adjust the spacing between letters (tracking), line spacing (leading), paragraph spacing, indents, text case, and more.

Unique Mac OS X features

Besides these features, SOHO Labels takes unique advantage of the advanced capabilities of Mac OS X. (It requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later.) For example, it offers a Cover Flow feature that lets you browse through the included designs, and an animated font preview that shows your text in any available font-either in a list or as a moving slideshow. You can add special effects from Mac OS X to your designs, such as Sepia, Motion Blur, Sparkle, Linear and Circular Gradients, Drop Shadows, Transparency, and more.

Performance

Any program that uses as many advanced features as this one could perform slowly, but on my 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM, I found its speed to be acceptable. SOHO Labels is a 64-bit application, which means it can be a little faster on the latest Macs. (If necessary, you can revert to 32-bit by ticking a checkbox in the program’s Get Info dialog.)

The included user manual is clear and complete, with many extra tips about getting successful output.

Macworld’s buying advice

If you’re looking for an application that goes far beyond Address Book’s limited ability to print labels and addresses, or if you want to create raffle tickets, name badges, file folder labels, raffle tickets or admission tickets, SOHO Labels is a clear winner. It’s integration with Mac OS X, advanced automation features, and beautiful built-in art at a reasonable price make it a compelling choice.

How To Record Program Channels On Dreambox Satellite Decoder

/* Posted April 27th, 2011 at 8:40am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Gadgets    */

There are many satellite decoders in the market that have already been equipped with PVR (Personal Video Recorder) functionality such as higher end Dreambox 800HD or the most affordable Openbox/Skybox/Yumy brand. However, for those older generation decoders such as Dreambox DM500s that doesn’t have such feature but don’t be disapointed, there are actually still ways to do recording directly on PC with simple setup.

i. First, download and install Ngrablite or Ngrab on your Windows PC.
ii. Launch Ngrablite or Ngrab and on your taskbar, right click on the icon to do initial setup. Key in the IP address (from step iii. below) and Port number as 4000 with the destination folder that you want the media clips to be saved into PC.
iii.Then, read the IP address of your Dreambox decoder by going to Menu – Setup – Expert Setup – Communication Setup, which will be needed to be keyed into Step ii.
iv. On the remote control, go to Menu – Setup – Expert Setup – Ngrab Streaming Setup. Under the Srv IP field, put in the IP address of your PC, and Srv Port as 4000 followed by a button press on “detect MAC address”.

By now, you will be able to control the start/stop Ngrab recording by going to access both the ‘start Ngrab recording’ and ‘stop Ngrab recording’ on the menu access by going to Menu – Setup – Blue-Panel – Plugins (Tools). Alternatively, users can assign a quickbutton to access submenu faster for greater user experience.

360Lizard: Standalone Mode Preview Part 2 and new Basic Kit

/* Posted April 27th, 2011 at 8:40am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Xbox    */


We have recently posted the 2nd preview video of Standalone Mode. The Standalone Mode will be undergoing rigorous testing throughout the week and we anticipate releasing to the public by end of next week (if no major issues arise).

As many users are aware the UPDATE server has down the last days; we have fixed the problem and have restored the full functionality.

On another note we have posted Links in the download section for the FTDI USB drivers because some of the links in the manual’s where no longer valid, if you have problems getting the drivers please go to our download page by clicking the link above.

Lastly, there has been some claim’s about Lizard has been “way overpriced”, the competitor’s are trying to compare against other tool around that “claim” to be cheaper, but when you do the math you end paying more by individually purchasing all the parts that are already included with a FULL Lizard kit. In order to have clear view on the price of both items on the market we are now offering a BASIC KIT; which consists on the Lizard unit, a USB cable and a SATA cable for a bargain price of $69.99 USD. The rest of the items can be purchased separately if desired BUT we are still offering the full 360 Lizard Kit (which includes the Scorpion Tool and the DVD Drive power adapter) for $99.99 USD.

** Note: The above prices are MSRP and may vary from reseller to reseller. Please contact your nearest reseller to see if they have basic kit available using the reseller link above.

PoV: Playing the blame game on the PSN outage

/* Posted April 27th, 2011 at 2:41am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

Sony finally revealed the real cause of the recent PSN outage, saying it was indeed an “external intrusion” that forced them to shut down the PlayStation Network and its Qriocity service.

ps3slim

According to Sony, they learned about the intrusion on “April 19th and subsequently shut the services down.” They then brought an outside experts to help them “learn how the intrusion occurred and to conduct an investigation to determine the nature and scope of the incident.” The firm explains that it was “necessary to conduct several days of forensic analysis,” and it took their experts until yesterday to understand the scope of the breach.

Now, the big question is, who would you blame for the PSN shut down? Is it Sony or the unauthorized person/persons responsible with the attack?

While you can blame Sony all you want with the lack of info and what not, the real culprit here are clearly the hackers who committed a crime by stealing unauthorized data, compromising their personal info and neglegting their rights to use the service.  

What about you guys? Do you think Sony are solely to blame for this mess or the hacker/hackers responsible with the breach? Share your comments below or continue the discussion at the forums.

N64 Emulator: DaedalusX64 Beta 3 Update

/* Posted April 27th, 2011 at 2:40am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under PSP    */

emulator gets another official update from the team. After more months of hard work on the emulator the team has fixed many bugs present in Beta 3. And finally they have added cheat code support. Something many users have been after for a long time.


DaedalusX64 notes:

As promised the next public release of Daedalusx64 is out! This mostly to address issues found in Beta 3 (thx to all the members that reported the issues), and also to improve the stability of the emulator. Several risky optimizations from B3 were removed to favor stability, but no fear, several speed improvements were squeezed onto this released as well.

Also we added a highly requested feature: support for cheat codes. This is based from 1964, any cheat for 1964 works perfectly in Daedalus (you can simply copy and paste any cheat from their database onto Daedalus.cht file)
Other big improvement is the implementation of env mapping and software culling.

DaedalusX64 Beta 3 Update changelog:

(Major changes since Beta 3, See SVN log for full list)
———————-
Salvy:

Qik)

Right on the heels of last month’s Video Connect app release for iPhone, Qik today announces Video Connect for Android. So what does this analogous pair of apps mean in the grand scheme of mobile communications? It means another big step in the way of ubiquitous, cross-platform video phone calls. Adding the ability to initiate video calls between Android and iOS devices over 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, and WiMax networks is sure to bring the already popular app tons of new users.

In addition to its primary video calling feature, the app offers integrated sharing across social media (Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube) and video mail for when friends aren’t available for live chat. Note that the video mail feature is available as a free trial only until June 1 this year, after which it will be available for an extra fee.

Qik also claims the app comes with “improved battery life, smoother video, [and] better picture quality through deep device and hardware integration in collaboration with handset manufacturers,” which is all good news if true.

Just update your preloaded Qik app, or find Qik Video Connect in the Android app store for instant download. Interested parties should act fast though, as the app is available for free only this week. After, it will jump to $2.99.

MSI Wind Top AE2050: Low-Cost All-in-One Falls Behind the Budget Pack

/* Posted April 26th, 2011 at 8:40pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under News    */

MSI Wind Top AE2050 budget all-in-one desktop PCHot on the heels of the Wind Top AE2220 comes the MSI Wind Top AE2050, a budget all-in-one PC that’s all about compromise. For this model, MSI shed a few hundred bucks off the asking price ($680 as of April 26, 2011), but also gone are the AE220′s Blu-ray drive, speed, 1080p resolution, and connections. What’s left is a low-power alternative that’s less expensive but challenged by tough competition.

The Wind Top AE2050 runs the lower-cost AMD Fusion E-350, a 1.6GHz CPU that’s part of the new AMD Brazos platform (AMD’s equivalent to Intel’s Atom). To AMD’s credit, Fusion chips produce better graphics and achieve faster video-decoding speeds than their rivals do. Still, the E-350 CPU is the Achilles’ heel of the AE2050: Although the processor reduces power consumption, general performance suffers dramatically.

Jumping from the Wind Top AE2220 all-in-one’s Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 platform to AMD’s Brazos is kind of like going from a motorcycle to a moped, and the benchmarks for the AE2050′s 1.6GHz CPU (alongside 4GB of DDR3-667 memory) tell the tale. General performance on this all-in-one desktop is nearly half that of its predecessor, dropping to a score of 53 on our WorldBench 6 suite of tests from the AE220′s mark of 90. Competing systems at similar price points, such as the HP All-in-One 200-5020, managed a score of 104 on our test suite.

The graphics integrated into the system’s E-350 CPU–AMD’s Radeon HD 6310–failed to run our gaming benchmarks on the PC’s default 1600-by-900-pixel resolution. In our Unreal Tournament 3 benchmark, the AE2050 couldn’t get off the ground regardless of whether we ran the test on a high or medium graphical setting. We were able to achieve play time only by dropping the game down to a resolution of 1024 by 768, and we’d hardly call the PC’s 23 frames per second on medium quality settings to be all that “playable.” This is par for the course for the all-in-one category, but keep it in mind when you’re considering your PC entertainment options.

As far as the display goes, we were pleased with the AE2050′s saturation, which brought more of a lifelike quality to movies and images than competing systems such as the HP Omni 200 Quad did. The AE2050′s grayscales are a little murkier; we would have liked to see a crisper and brighter full white instead of the darker, duller levels presented. A bit of glare from the glossy panel can be an annoyance in darker scenes, too, depending on the lighting setup of your environment.

Video playback performance is the AMD E-350 CPU’s strong point, and it showed in our tests–high-definition (720p) media was stutter-free. The Blu-ray combo drive on the MSI AE2220 has been replaced here by a DVD burner, befitting the loss of native 1080p resolution. The AE2050′s two speakers offer a less-than-stellar movie experience, delivering laptop-quality sound that’s driven from the center of the rig.

We were quite surprised to see the inclusion of two USB 3.0 ports on the system’s side–a delightful addition given this system’s sub-$1000 price. Also of note is MSI’s Super Charger technology, which converts one of the USB 3.0 ports into a dedicated device charger; the company claims that it will reduce charging time by up to 40 percent. You’ll have to turn the functionality on by way of an applet on the PC; but once you’ve set it, devices can charge through it even when the PC is off. A multiformat card reader joins the ports on the system’s side, while the rear of the AE2050 hosts a single HDMI port, four more USB ports (2.0 this time), and a gigabit ethernet port.

While we’d love to see more diversity in the connections, the inclusion of USB 3.0 and HDMI on a budget all-in-one is both unique and welcome. And, of course, we can’t forget about the wireless aspect of the AE2050: 802.11n networking is built right into the system. That’s the second best-hidden part of this PC. The first is its use of a 1TB hard drive, double the capacity of MSI’s AE2220 desktop. Thank goodness that drive is beefy, because MSI offers no instructions for going into the system’s insides and performing upgrades of your own (or any indication that you can even do so).

Another addition to this model is the latest version of MSI’s Wind Touch software, Wind Touch 4. During CES 2011 in January, we looked at Wind Touch 4 running on a system equipped with one of Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors. The software provides touch-optimized applications in a custom overlay, including a calendar, a photo gallery, and a media player; you can also add shortcuts to your own application with ease. Check out our video to see the Wind Touch 4 in action.

We did take issue with the stand that props the AE2050 up at a particular angle. It’s difficult to manage and set, so performing minute tweaks of the setup to achieve the perfect viewing angle for the all-in-one is a challenge. The wired keyboard and mouse that MSI bundled with our test machine are as generic as generic can be, offering no additional buttons or features beyond the standard layouts that you’d find on any run-of-the-mill input device.

The MSI Wind Top AE2050 is a step back from the company’s AE2220 desktop, and the features that are missing don’t leave much to go on when comparing this budget all-in-one desktop with some of the category’s best. The display is fairly attractive, the hard drive is roomy, and the inclusion of USB 3.0 ports and HDMI at such a low price is great. But lackluster performance from an underpowered chip leaves the AE2050 staggering behind several low-cost competitors, and as a result there’s no killer reason to pick this PC over its budget peers–or MSI’s slightly pricier offerings.
