Google Body Browser


Google Labs has launched a body browsing Web page, allowing anyone to look up an organ and find it in the human body. Sadly, it’s a bit limited.


Today, the search company launched the Google Body Browser, a page that lets you view and search for, in three dimensions, any organ or organ system in the human body. Unfortunately, getting it to work is a bit difficult. Because it uses WebGL, a 3D graphics API that runs within a browser, you must install a beta version of the Google Chrome browser to try it out. After you install the beta, restart your browser and it should work.

“Body Browser is a detailed 3D model of the human body,” said Google in the introduction. “You can peel back anatomical layers, zoom

in, and navigate to parts that interest you. Click to identify anatomy, or search for muscles, organs, bones and more.”

While it is easy to kill a few minutes searching for metatarsals and seeing what breast tissue looks like, the Body Browser is a bit limited. As best we can tell, there is no way to switch from the default female body and aside from looking at organs, there is no way to find additional written, audio, or video information about the human body. It’s about on par with Google’s Sky Map Android app. Both, however, might make you sound a bit brighter on your next date.

There is no word on if an Android version of the Body Browser is on the way. Until then, those preparing for the Boards will have to find a browser.  Honestly though, this may not help you either way.

t’s the holiday season and Google wants to do its part about caring and sharing. The thing that Google has hit upon this time is a website, called TeachParentsTech.org that has video tutorials to help people do basic things that any youngster of this generation would do with ease.

Often, the tech embracing elders in your house would have asked you doubts regarding the use of the computer and the internet. Sometimes you would be a bit bemused and think how they don’t know these simple things. Then you would realize that they were not really part of the computer using generation, unlike you. Google has come up with a website to aid you in providing first hand information about these things.

 

All you need to do is point your browser to TeachParentsTech.org and you can select any number of videos on various topics that you can send to your dad, mom, uncles or neighbours. You can send a custom email with all the links to the videos you have selected from about 50 different topics, ranging from copy and paste, shorten a long url, set up an email auto responder to finding a pizza restaurant near you. Not surprisingly, the videos advocate everyone to use different services of Google to alleviate their problems. Not all problems are addressed here, but it’s a start. In fact, I would recommend all the elders to visit the website and watch the one minute videos about the topics that they are not familiar about. It’s a neat website and a good idea. Nice one, Google!

Face Detection in any language


Face detection is a computer technology that determines the locations and sizes of human faces in arbitrary (digital) images. It detects facial features and ignores anything else, such as buildings, trees and bodies. The softwares like picasa let you to search any image with a face of the person. Various social networking sites also added similar kind of functionality into their websites to make rich photo albums.
In this post, I’ll explain various plug-ins and libraries for face detection.

What is Face Detection?

Face detection is a technique where given image is searched for human faces. Face detection can be used to automatically detect and focus on face in profile pictures on social networking sites.

jQuery Face detection

A jQuery plug-in which detects faces in pictures and return their coordinates. The plugin uses algorithm designed by Liu Liu along with HTML5 canvas to get image data. That means the plugin will be only useful where client side browser support HTML5.

Demo Here
Code can be obtained from git hub

PHP FaceDetect Extension

Provides implementation of OpenCV in PHP. It provides two main functions face_count() and face_detect(). The first one returns count of faces found in a given image and second on returns array of their coordinates along with count.

Installation instructions and demo is available on XARG’s page.

Face Detection API

An API implemented by a Romanian developer for face detection. Simply send your API credentials along with URL of an image. The XML tree of faces along with 4 box coordinates will be returned. What makes this API useful is it takes image URL as an input and not image data. This means you can run this API on image hosted on public servers also.

Ruby

Similar to PHP facedetect extension, a ruby binding to OpenCV is available at Rubyforge which can be used for face detection.

OpenCVDotNet

OpenCV handler for .NET framework which enables call to OpenCV functions from Csharp. It consists of a DLL (written in Managed C++) that wraps the OpenCV library in .NET classes, so that they will be available from any managed language (C#, VB.NET or Managed C++).

 

Tips to protect your WiFi



WiFi is a very easy feature available for the anti-social persons to use it for their destructive purposes . If you have WiFi connection, make sure that it is secured.

Here is some measures you need to take to secure your WiFi connection.

Enable firewalls on each computer and router: Modern network routers contain built-in firewall capability, but the option also exists to disable them. Ensure that your router’s firewall is turned on.

Position the router or access point safely: While installing WiFi, ensure that the position of the access point or router prevents its reach to the exterior as much as possible. Try to position the device as far away from the windows as possible.

Turn off network during extended periods of non-use: Avoid leaving your network available when you are not using it. Shutting down your network will most certainly prevent outside hackers from breaking in.

Avoid using default usernames and passwords: Use a login/password on your router that is different than the default settings. Most routers are made available with a default combination that can be hacked

Enable MAC Address filtering: Each wireless device has a unique identifier called the MAC address. Access points and routers keep track of the MACs for all devices that connect to them. It ensures that rogues cannot connect to it

Avoid auto-connect to open wireless networks: Your connection allows you to connect to an open wireless network such as a free wireless hotspot or your neighbour’s router. This exposes your PC to security risks and attacks.

Limit the no of people who can see your network by disabling the SSID broadcast: The wireless access point or router typically broadcasts the SSID over the air at regular intervals. Home users can avoid this facility.


How Facebook Works


In 2004, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, three Harvard University students, launched a Web site designed to put students in touch with one another, share their photos and meet new people. They called it thefacebook.com, and before long the site became extremely popular on the Harvard campus. A month after the site launched, the creators expanded it to include students from Stanford, Columbia and Yale. By 2005, students in 800 college networks across the United States could join the network, and its membership grew to more than 5 million active users. In August of that year, the site’s name changed to Facebook.

Facebook was originally intended for college students, but today anyone can join the network. Although the site’s scope has expanded to include more than just students, its purpose remains the same — giving people a way to share information in an easy and entertaining way. Like MySpace, Facebook is a social networking site.

To explore Facebook, you must create a free account on the site. Facebook’s terms of use state that members must be at least 13 years old, and any member between the ages of 13 and 18 must be enrolled in school. Facebook requires new members to provide a valid e-mail address before completing registration. Once you’ve created an account and answered a few questions about where you work, where you went to school and where you live, Facebook will generate a profile for you.

Facebook provides several ways to find friends:

You can browse and join networks, which are organized into four categories: regions (networks that are linked to specific cities or countries), colleges, workplaces and high schools. Once you join a network, you can browse through the list of members and search for people you know. You can sort people by age, sex, relationship status, political views and other criteria.
You can let Facebook pull contacts from a Web-based e-mail account. To do this, you have to give Facebook your e-mail address and password. Facebook uses a program that searches through your e-mail contacts and compares the list against its membership database. Whenever Facebook discovers a match, it gives you the option to add that person as a friend.
You can use Facebook’s search engine to look for a specific person. Type the person’s name into the search field, and Facebook will display any profiles that match the name.

Web apps Vs Mobile apps


 

After the arrival of chrome web apps last Tuesday, I just discovered the technical difference between mobile apps and web apps. Do we really need web apps? Though google chrome have loads of free apps in this repository, I strongly believe any web app is just a click away, since we all surf web through our laptops or desktop, type the url in the address bar is not a head ache, since mobile phones are tiny with small screen and even the mobile operators are good at bandwidth, mobile desperately needs app to get connect to the web soon and and start accessing the required apps and get the things done.

So here are the few technical information I gathered.Difference between mobile and web apps.

The difference between web and mobile applications is that web applications lack state: every page request is completely de-linked from every other page request. It is only through various technical work-rounds that web applications manage to maintain the illusion that a web app user is running a coherent application as they navigate from page to page.

In a mobile application, by contrast, every aspect of the application is targeted at a single user and the “state” of the application is a given as you navigate from dialog to dialog.

In case of web apps their is tight integration, can use the resource which are on board, where as mobile apps are loosely integrated since they have less on board resources.

Mobile web applications are, essentially, just web applications with two caveats: the screen size is considerably smaller and the browser capabilities are generally less robust. Thus, you’d write a mobile web app in pretty much the same way as a standard web app but you can not count on some of the capabilities that you usually have with a full-blown browser. This last constraint, by the way, is rapidly going away as mobile devices become more powerful.

Mobile client applications require a development environment, deployment strategy, etc. that is specific to the mobile device. The tools and techniques used in standard client application development don’t map particularly well to the Mobile client. Instead, you’ll need to learn new tools, controls and techniques. The only real exception to this rule are the tools available through

 

 

 

What Is Spyware And Adware


Spyware and Adware is software made by publishers that allow them to snoop on your browsing activity, invade your privacy, and flood you with those horrible popups. If you are like most users on the internet, chances are you are probably infected with these applications.

Why Does Spyware And Adware Affect Every Internet User

• All information you enter via the web can be intercepted

• Unauthorized sites can add themselves to your desktop (icons)

• Unauthorized sites can add themselves to your internet favorites

know google before searching


The internet, a network spanning the globe. Today around 20% of the world’s population is connected. That’s over 1.4 billion people, a number with ten digits and it’s growing. Imagine each of these individuals would contribute only one sentence per day and one file per week.

And now think again. How realistic is that? How many sentences and files do you put online on an average day? Does that put Google’s name choice into perspective? Google is said to be named after the number googol, i.e. 10100, a one followed by 100 zeros. It’s funny how back then they obviously didn’t care about the correct spelling, and today the verb google is found in many contemporary dictionaries.

Either way, it’s hard to imagine how much information is out there, yet a lot of it is at your fingertips. You just have to search right. Here are some tips to optimize and streamline your Google searches, and furthermore a handful of tricks that will save you time.

(1) Fine Tune

Operators are functional words or signs that tell the search engine how to connect or separate the given search terms. The most important ones are…

*
AND or +
With “AND” or “+” you can link words, so all linked terms are included in the search results. I’m adding this to give a complete collection. Google automatically searches for all given terms.
Example: sun AND moon or sun +moon
Note the “AND” must be in caps and there is no space after the “+”.
*
OR or |
Use these to search for either term.
Example: sun OR moon or sun | moon
Note that again “OR” must be in caps, but in this case there is a space after the “|”.
*
” “
Putting terms in a quote indicates a sentence and will be searched for exactly in this composition.
Example: “the sun lights up the moon”
*

The minus indicates that the following word or quoted set or words will be excluded from the search results.
Example: sun -moon or sun -”moon and stars”
Note that there is no space after the “-”
*
*
This is the so called wildcard. The asterisk represents a missing word, use it to let Google fill in any potential word.
Example: “the * lights up the moon”
*
~
To search for all synonyms of a word, put a tilde directly infront of it.
Example: ~sun
This search will bring back results containing the terms sun, solaris, solar, and a couple less obvious ones.
*
..
The double dot put directly between two numbers denotes a range to narrow the results down.
Example: “solar eclipse 1990..2005″
Note that there are no spaces between the numbers or the dots.
*
Advanced Search
If you have a hard time remembering all of these operators, use Google’s Advanced Search .

(2) Narrow Down
Let Google do a search for more specific content. Google will exclude vast parts of information and dig deeper, if you tell it where to look or what to look for. And these are the operators you will need to know for that purpose:

*
site:
Search a specific site only. Very useful if that page doesn’t provide an in-site search.
Example: site:makeuseof.com “Master the Google”
*
cache:
A clever operator to use if you suppose a page has changed or if it’s not currently available. Search for cached site versions within the Google Cache.
Example: cache:http://www.makeuseof.com
*
inurl: _ intitle: _ intext: _ inanchor:
Those will search terms within any URL, title, text or anchor text, respectively. You can define several terms and combine with any other operator. If you add an “all” infront of either of these operators, all given terms have to appear in the respective query.
Example: intext:makeuseof.com google -maps OR allintext:makeuseof google maps
Note that these are not the same as the site: operator. The in… operators will search all sites containing the given terms.
*
link:
This one will find pages that link to a given URL.
Example: link:makeuseof.com
*
define:
The smart way to search for definitions across the web.
Example: define:Googol
*
related:
Let’s say you love MUO and would like to find related pages, try this operator!
Example: related:http://www.makeuseof.com
*
info:
Get all the information Google has on a specific website in one search. That is links to Google Cache, similar pages, and more.
Example: info:makeuseof.com
*
filetype:
Quite obviously a way to search only for one type of file. Works with pdf, ppt and doc.
Example: filetype:pdf “Sun and Moon”
*
music:
A search with this operator will bring back artist, album and song information. The results are not always complete, so be careful.
Example: music:tina turner
*
movies:
The search for movie reviews.
Example: movie:indiana jones
*
Q&A
Google Q&A applies an AI engine to find answers to simple questions.
Example: What is the population of China?

3) Do the Math

Google can calculate.

1)
+ _ – _ * _ /
For simple equations use the symbols for plus, minus, multiply, and divert respectively. Use (brackets) to define which calculations shall be done first, else the simple rule multiplication and division before addition and subtraction applies.
Example: (10 + 4) /2 *7 = 49 OR 10 + 4 /2 *7 = 24
2)
% of
Example: 51% of 900 = 459
3)
^ OR **
These operators will raise a number to the power of another.
Example: 5^3 will raise 5 to the 3rd power.
4)
And more…
Without further ado, here’s an in-depth selection for the math junkie in you:
sqrt() or square root of
sin() cos() tan()
ln logarithm base e
log logarithm base 10
lg logarithm base 2
! factorial

4) Convert & Conquer

Google can do painful conversion for you, for example from degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius. It can also answer really mundane questions such as what is the time in Sydney. Just type your question in plain English and Numbers, and Google will most likely give you a smart answer.

* currencies
Example: 100 Euro in USD
* weight, length, volume, etc.
Example: 100kg in lb
* time
Example: time sydney
* weather
Example: weather mumbai

do u know any other tricks, then we want to listen those., comment here about that.
