Hindi Shayeri - must read

Wo jo shaamil hai mere geet mere naghmo mein,
Kabhi tanhai mein mujhko gun gunaati hogi,
Jiske liye mera dil beqaraar rahta hai,
Mere liye apna chain bhi gawanti hogi,
Jisse izhaar-e-wafa har pal karna chahoon,
Kabhi iqraar to wo bhi karna chahti hogi,
Jiske liye meri har raat hai karwat karwat,
Kabhi to use bhi neend na aati hogi,
Jiski ulfat ki shama se hai mera dil roshan,
Meri chahat ke wo bhi deep jalati hogi,

7 and 10.1 inches android tablets and 4.8 inch smart phone from Acer

Acer is placing its bets behind Android with the announcement of a 7-inch tablet, a 10.1-inch tablet and a 4.8-inch smartphone based off of Google’s mobile OS.

The unnamed tablets sport 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, an eye-popping 1280×800 screen resolution and 1080p HDMI capacity. The 10.1-inch tablet is 13.3mm thick, making it just slightly wider than Apple’s 12.7mm iPad tablet. The larger tablet also boast a 5MP rear camera and a front-facing one. Both devices will go on sale in April 2011.

Acer also took the opportunity today to announce a 4.8-inch hybrid smartphone/tablet device. Also yet to be named, the smartphone is similar to the Dell Streak, but is definitely more powerful. It sports a 1024×480 screen resolution (a ridiculous resolution for a phone), a 21:9 aspect ratio, an 8MP camera with an LED flash, a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and a Gyroscope/accelerometer combo that makes it ideal as a portable gaming device. It also launches in April 2011.

Beyond ridiculously awesome screen resolutions, all three devices run on AndroidAndroidAndroid. Acer did not reveal in its press releases which version each will run, but we’re hoping at least one of these devices will run the Gingerbread OS (Android 2.3) or even Honeycomb (Android 3.0?).

During its media blitz today, Acer also revealed the ICONIA, a hybrid laptop/tablet with a dual-screen running Microsoft’s Windows 7 OS. Instead of using a keyboard, the ICONIA uses a touch-based keyboard and gesture controls. It has 4 GB of RAM, two 14-inch multitouch displays, and an Intel Core i5 CPU.

Astronomers find giant extragalactic planet

Astronomers have for the first time spotted a planet that originated outside the galaxy.

Till date, about 500 planets have been discovered. This is the first known planet to have been born elsewhere.

The gas planet, at least 25 percent heavier than Jupiter or 400 times heavier than Earth, orbits a star that started life in a dwarf galaxy, according to the journal Science Express.

Known as HIP 13044b, the hydrogen and helium planet sits in a solar system belonging to a group of stars called the Helmi stream, some 2,000 light years away from Earth, the Telegraph reports.

Between six and nine billion years ago, the Helmi merged with the Milky Way in an act of 'galactic cannibalism'. It is now in a southern constellation of the Milky Way called the Fornax or Furnace.

Because of the vast distance, astronomers at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in La Silla, Chile, could not detect the planet visibly, using the 2.2 metre-diameter telescope.

Instead, they inferred its existence from tiny telltale wobbles of the star.

These are caused by the gravitational tug of its large orbiting companion, which the astronomers detected with a high-resolution spectrograph attached to the telescope.

Rainer Klemen, of the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany, said: 'This discovery is very exciting. For the first time, astronomers have detected a planetary system in a stellar stream of extragalactic origin.'

The planet is orbiting a star which is approaching the end of its life, having exhausted its hydrogen fuel and gone through a stage of massive expansion - called the red giant phase - in which it probably consumed the inner planets in its solar system.

It has now contracted again and is burning helium in its core.

Twitter Calculates Reputation Scores for Each User

Ever wonder how Twitter determines which users to suggest in the Who to Follow section?

Federated Media’s John Battelle posed this question to Twitter co-founder Evan Williams at the Web 2.0 Summit. Part of the answer, according to Williams, is that the company calculates a reputation score for every user.

While Williams — who recently stepped down as Twitter’s CEO to focus on product — did not disclose specifics, he did share that each Twitter user has a reputation score, which the company uses internally as part of its Who to Follow formula. That score may eventually become part of Twitter’s public-facing features, says Williams.

Reputation scores, and influence in particular, have become trendy subject matters in today’s social media world. Startup Klout has developed an entire business around scoring social influence. A Twitter user’s Klout score, for instance, could determine whether he or she gets special treatment from an airline or hotel.

Apparently, Twitter has wrestled with the notion of making its internal version of reputation scores public for some time now. Should it do so — and we hope it will — Twitter could shake up the newly forming market around influence.

IPL player auctions on January 8, 9

The IPL player auction for the 2011 season will be held on January 8 and 9 in Mumbai, the league's governing council has announced. The tournament itself will feature eight teams, playing 60 matches, and run from April 8 to May 22.

The tournament, which begins a week after the World Cup ends, will involve each of the eight sides playing playing 14 games, adding up to 56 matches, the same as in previous IPL editions. The top two from the league rounds will then contest a play-off match, with the winner qualifying for the "Grand Final." The teams that finish third and fourth in the league stage will contest the other play-off, and the winner of that game will play the defeated team from the first play-off to decide the second finalist.

The auction is likely to be on the scale of the first one, held in 2008, with teams starting largely from scratch, and will be held under rules framed in September. One difference will be the absence of "icon" players - originally, five franchises had one player each named as its icon. The auction was initially to have been held this month but uncertainty over the composition of the tournament - with two franchises expelled and a third, Kochi, in limbo - forced a postponement.

The governing council, which met in Mumbai on Wednesday, was expected to have discussed the status of the Kochi franchise but Rajiv Shukla, a BCCI vice-president and council member, said it did not figure. He did, however, reiterate that the 2011 season would have eight participating teams.

Kochi have until November 27 to reply to the IPL's notice asking it to set its house in order; if, as seems likely, the franchise owners decide to call it quits, the IPL will start the auction process for a replacement team. With a majority of the current franchises in the southern half of the country, any new franchise is likely to be from the north - Ahmedabad being the front-runner.

The new auction rules governing player retention, which have been criticised by the franchises, allow a team to keep up to four players but at a steep price.The first player retained will cost a team $1.8 million against the salary cap of $9 million, regardless of the amount the player is actually paid. The second player will cost $1.3 million, the third $900,000 and the fourth $500,000.

Facebook unveils e-mail

The world's favourite social networking website, Facebook has launched a new messaging service, which allows the users to communicate with people outside the social network.

The new messaging system will provide a '@facebook.com' e-mail address to users. The new system will integrates all web and text-based communications and works directly in the Facebook page.


Texts, email or instant messages will all come into one 'feed' or 'social inbox' and users can respond in any way they want. Users can respond to messages via an instant message or email.

The entire conversation histories will be stored in Inbox, which users can check at any time. Now Facebook users can connect with other people with e-mail or messaging other than the current system of posting messages on profile page and internal messaging service.

"This is not an email killer. This is a messaging system that includes email as one part of it," said Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO.

"Maybe we can help push the way people do messaging more towards this simple, real time, immediate personal experience. Email is still really important to a lot of people. We think this simple messaging is how people will shift their communication," he added.

"We really want to enable people to have conversations with the people they care about," Facebook's director of engineering Andrew Bosworth said.

The new service will be rolled out in coming months for Facebook's 500 million plus users with a @facebook.com address.

The new e-mail service will be a threat to internet giant Google's mail service Gmail and Yahoomail.

AOL Unveils “Project Phoenix,” Its New Webmail App

AOL this afternoon unveiled an updated web client for e-mail, which it says accounts for 45% of all its page views. The announcement and new features have arrived just one day before Facebook is expected to announce an e-mail solution of its own.

The new e-mail app — currently called “Project Phoenix” — is in beta testing with just a few users, but it will launch to the public next year sometime. It’s part of a recent spate of AOL moves to reinvigorate a once-great brand that has recently been eclipsed by newer ventures like Google and Facebook.

The company recently launched a Groupon-like group-buying site and acquired the popular tech blog TechCrunch; those are just a couple of its recent moves. The webmail redesign is a particularly notable move because of that 45% figure we just mentioned.

According to CNET, the new design “looks a lot like Gmail” with some extra features added in, such as a quick bar for easily writing and sending short e-mails. There’s also a new Twitter-like side bar called “Smart View” for previewing the contents of e-mails and their attachments, as well as maps, conversation threads and other data.

Phoenix supports e-mail addresses on the AOL-owned domains aol.com, ygm.com, wow.com, games.com and love.com, and it will also bring in messages from Yahoo Mail, Hotmail or Gmail. If you’re interested in trying it out, you can go to the Project Phoenix website and request an invite, but you’ll be waiting a little while.

history of Veterans Day

Veterans Day is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.

The U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed an Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday, he said

    "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."

The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting that the President (Calvin Coolidge) issue another proclamation to observe November 11 with appropriate ceremonies. An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday; "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'."

In 1953, an Emporia, Kansas shoe store owner named Alfred King had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who served in World War I. King had been actively involved with the American War Dads during World War II. He began a campaign to turn Armistice Day into "All" Veterans Day. The Emporia Chamber of Commerce took up the cause after determining that 90% of Emporia merchants as well as the Board of Education supported closing their doors on November 11 to honor veterans. With the help of then-U.S. Rep. Ed Rees, also from Emporia, a bill for the holiday was pushed through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower signed it into law on May 26, 1954.

Congress amended this act on June 1, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with Veterans, and it has been known as Veterans Day since.

Although originally scheduled for celebration on November 11 of every year, starting in 1971 in accordance with the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, Veterans Day was moved to the fourth Monday of October. In 1978 it was moved back to its original celebration on November 11. Since this change, there has been a trend against being closed on the holiday. It began with businesses (excluding banks) and in recent years some schools and local governments have also chosen to remain open.[citation needed]

Do's and Dont's on Facebook

10 commandments of Facebook

 Wonder how much of personal information is fine on Facebook? Well, an expert tells you the dos and don'ts of being a part of the social networking giant.

Dave Whitelegg said that although Facebook is a fun way to keep in touch with friends and family, it can also be dangerous.
"Posting certain photos or information on the site puts you at risk of being fired, a victim of crime, or even worse. There are computer programmes called 'data mining' that sweep Facebook to collect dates of birth, phone numbers, addresses etc. That's gold dust to criminals," the Sun quoted Whitelegg, an IT security expert, as saying.
Here are the 10 things you should never post on Facebook and why.

Date and place of birth- This places you at massive risk of identity theft. They are the most commonly used security questions on password resetting sites.

Mother's maiden name-A lot of sites use your mother's maiden name to authenticate who you are. They also commonly use the school you went to as a security question.

Address- It again puts you at risk from identity fraud, but also from burglars and stalkers.

Holidays-If you post an update on Facebook saying: "Can't wait till next Wednesday - two weeks in Miami yeh!" you are basically saying: "Come and rob me."


Short trips from home-Again, this can put you at risk of burglary and stalking.

Inappropriate photos- Don't post racy, illicit, offensive or incriminating photos. Bosses and prospective employers are increasingly looking at Facebook pages.

Confessionals-These can also get you fired or haunt you for the rest of your life. Posting you are skiving work, who you are sleeping with, or doing something shameful is just dumb.

Phone number-Unless you want to be bombarded with unsolicited phone calls from people trying to sell you something - don't.

Children's names-These can be used by identity fraudsters or, more sinisterly, by paedophiles. It is much easier to steal a child's identity. An adult will eventually discover something is wrong by, for example, their credit rating being affected. Children won't.

Don't post a full public profile-It won't just exist on Facebook, it will go on any internet search such as Google. Only give the bare bones such as a name. Keep everything else private.

Google to speed up searches with visual Web site ‘previews’

Google’s search engine has a new feature that may cause Web surfers to do less…Web surfing.

The company’s new Instant Previews announced on Tuesday provides visual snapshots of Web pages directly within the list of search results, making it easier and quicker to home in on the Web page you’re looking for.

Instant Previews, which will be rolled out during the next few days, puts a small icon of a magnifying glass next to most of Google’s search results. Click on the magnifying glass and Google serves up a screenshot of the Web page, highlighting the section of the page that’s relevant to your search query.GOOGInstantPreview

That eliminates the time-consuming back-and-forth excursions from Google’s list of search results to various Web sites.

Google says the majority of the preview snapshots are already stored in its index of the Web, and Google will pre-load the preview images for search results in your browser in the background. Result: preview images typically load in less than one-tenth of a second, says Google.

The previews represent the latest step in Google’s efforts to find new ways to accelerate Web searches, following September’s introduction of Google Instant, which predicts a search query and fetches the relevant list of results before you finish typing.

It will be interesting to see to what extent data-heavy new features like Instant Previews add to Google’s infrastructure spending – Google’s capital expenditures in the third quarter jumped to $757 million compared to $476 million in the second quarter and $239 million in the first quarter.



The new features comes as competition in the search market continues to heat up, with Microsoft offering new features in its Bing search engine, such as Facebook content.

Last week, a company called Blekko unveiled a new search engine that filters out the morass of spam-like sites designed to appear at the top of Google search results, delivering a more limited, but the company claims more relevant, set of results.

That kind of exclusionary approach to search probably couldn’t fly at Google, which has faced regulatory scrutiny over its power to control which Web sites get top billing in search results. But by letting users quickly flip through screenshots of websites, without wasting time loading each page in a browser, Google may be offering its own way for users to circumvent the clutter of unwanted Web sites.

Yoga For Back Pain

How to Perform this Low Back Pain Exercise

Take note that this is just one exercise explained in McKenzie's book, "7 Steps to a Pain-Free Life." For more detailed explanations and other exercises, I highly recommend reading his book. It is an excellent resource and something you will find yourself loaning out to your friends.Position One - Lying on your stomach
Lay on your stomach with your arms at your side and your head turned to one side. Stay in this position for 2-3 minutes and try to completely relax.
Position Two - Propping yourself on your elbows
Next prop yourself up on your elbows resting under your shoulders. If you feel sharp pain, move your elbows further away from your shoulders to a point where your pain subsides. If it does not subside, do not continue with the exercise.
Position Three - Press Up Exercise
Lay on your stomach again with your head turned to one side. But, this time position your hands palm down underneath your shoulders. Straighten your elbows as far as your pain permits. Try to keep your hips relaxed and in contact with the ground so that you are arching your back. Hold 1-2 seconds.
Repeat the exercise with each time trying to go a little further until your arms are completely straight and your elbows locked.

as long as you love me song lyrics

As long as you love me

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I'm leavin' my life in your hands
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
I can't get you out of my head
Don't care what is written in your history
As long as you're here with me

I don't care who you are
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you're from
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me

Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it's deep within me
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
It seems like we're meant to be

I don't care who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
What you did
As long as you love me (I don't know)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
Don't care what you did
As long as you love me (yeah)

I've tried to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows
When you look into my eyes
What you did and where you're comin from
I don't care, as long as you love me, baby

I don't care who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
What you did
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
Don't care what you did (yeah)
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are (who you are)
Where you're from (where you're from)
As long as you love me
Who you are
As long as you love me
