Facebook New Aps: Private posts that disappear

Facebook New Aps, Private posts that disappear

Social networking site Facebook has launched a new app for iOS called Poke on Friday which erases pictures and messages within seconds of being sent. Using the social network’s “Poke” feature in order to send short text, picture and video messages as well as the more traditional poke. Users have the option of adding their location to each poke, as well as sending each message to multiple recipients at once.

Unlike traditional Facebook messaging, users can specify how long the message will be displayed before being destroyed. Each poke can be displayed for 1, 3, 5 or 10 seconds before being removed from the app entirely, and the app wil notify the sender if any recipients take a screenshot. Anyone concerned about potentially unwanted or inappropriate messages can block and report users from within the Settings menu.

The new app is similar to Snapchat, an app which is popular with younger age users, and which has gained a reputation as a tool for sending risque images. It also has similar message expiry and screenshot detection features. Pandodaily reported that Snapchat sees 50 million photos sent a day, and it would seem that Facebook sensed an opportunity to offer a similar feature to its billion or so active users, putting the app together in just under two weeks.

Unlike Snapchat which is available on iOS and Android, Poke is currently limited to those on Apple devices, with no word of whether a dedicated Android app is coming or not. Poke takes Facebook’s iOS app count to five, two of which are iPad-optimised, compared to only two on the Android platform.

A very sad day in Newtown, Connecticut

My heart goes out to all the families and loved ones who lost their little ones today.


In one of the deadliest mass shootings in the United States, at least 26 people, including 20 children, have been killed at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, about 60 miles northeast of New York on Friday.

The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School appeared to be the US’ second-deadliest school shooting, exceeded only by the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, in which 32 people, including two Indians, were killed and 17 others wounded.

The gunman, identified as Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their home and then opened fire inside the school. The 20-year-old killer, carrying at least two handguns, committed suicide at the school, bringing the death toll to 28, authorities said.

Nintendo's Wii U Japan debut

Nintendo's Wii U Japan

Nintendo’s Wii U home videogame console has made its debut in Japan. People are lining up to buy the new console.

The device is already sold out in many US stores and probably will be in short supply by the weekend, some analysts fear.

The videogame maker’s first home console since 2006 comes in two versions at 26,250 yen ($319) and 31,500 yen with a 6.2- inch (16 centimeters) touch-screen controller called the GamePad. U.S. customers bought 400,000 units in the first week of sales that started Nov. 18, the company said Nov. 26.

Wii U, equipped with a touch-screen controller called the Wii U GamePad, enables players to play games on a television display or on the GamePad screen.

The Wii U is probably Nintendo's biggest bet in the last 20 years as a company and keeping the sales momentum going after the holiday shopping season could be a challenge.

Honda,recalls, Accord

Honda is recalling approximately 572,000 vehicles model-year 2003-2007 Accord V6 vehicles in the United States because of a faulty power steering hose that can leak fluid and eventually cause a fire.

Honda said, "Over time, exposure to high under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate and develop a fluid leak. Leaking power steering fluid could lead to loss of power steering assistance or, if it leaks onto a catalytic converter, it may result in smoke, or in the worst case, fire".

Honda said that owner's who suspects a leak should take their car to a dealer for inspection.

‘Gauss’ – A New Complex Cyber-Threat Designed to Monitor Online Banking Accounts

Gauss Trojan, anti-virus, kaspersky

Kaspersky Lab lead the discovery of ‘Gauss’, a new cyber-threat targeting users in the Middle East. Gauss is a complex, nation-state sponsored cyber-espionage toolkit that is design to steal sensitive data, with a specific focus on browser passwords, online banking account, cookies, and specific configurations of infected machines.

The online banking Trojan functionality found in Gauss is a unique characteristic that was not found in any previously known cyber weapons.

Gauss was discovered during the course of the ongoing effort initiated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), following the discovery of Flame. The effort is aimed at mitigating the risks posed by cyber-weapons, which is a key component in achieving the overall objective of global cyber-peace.

Quick Facts:

    Study indicates that Gauss began operations in the September 2011 timeframe.

    It was first discovered in June 2012, resulting from the knowledge gained by the in-depth analysis and research conducted on the Flame malware.

    This discovery was made possible due to strong resemblances and correlations between Flame and Gauss.

    The Gauss C&C infrastructure was shutdown in July 2012 shortly after its discovery. Currently the malware is in a dormant state, waiting for its C&C servers to become active.

    Since late May 2012, more than 2,500 infections were recorded by Kaspersky Lab’s cloud-based security system, with the estimated total number of victims of Gauss probably being in the tens of thousands. This number is lower compared to the case of Stuxnet but it’s significantly higher than the number of attacks in Flame and Duqu.

    Gauss steals detailed information about infected PCs including browser history, cookies, passwords, and system configurations. It is also capable of stealing access credentials for various online banking systems and payment methods.

    Analysis of Gauss shows it was designed to steal data from several Lebanese banks including the Bank of Beirut, EBLF, BlomBank, ByblosBank, FransaBank and Credit Libanais. In addition, it targets users of Citibank and PayPal.

The Gauss Trojan is successfully detected, blocked and remediated by Kaspersky Lab’s products, classified as Trojan-Spy.Win32.Gauss.

The company’s experts have published in-depth analysis of the malware at

A Gauss FAQ containing the essential information about the threat is also available:

2011 Car Models problems fell 5 percent from the previous year

According to J.D. Power & Associates annual Initial Quality Survey of new-vehicle owners, problems with 2011 models after three months on the road fell 5 percent from the previous year. But complaints about in-car electronics systems, especially voice controls, surged -- knocking Ford, which has pushed its MyFord Touch screen and Sync into about 4 million vehicles, to 27th out of 34 brands rated, down from fifth two years ago and 23rd last year.

For the second year in a row, Lexus owners reported fewer problems than any other brand, with 73 per 100 vehicles. The surprise winner in this year's results is Jaguar, which jumped from 20th to second, tying Porsche with 75 problems per 100. Honda and Cadillac rounded the top five.

The worst performers: Fiat and Smart, each of which sell just one model of minicar, and whose owners reported 151 problems per 100. The industry as a whole averaged 107 problems; Toyota, Honda and Nissan all rated above average, while GMC, Ram and Chevrolet were the only Detroit brands to do so.

Ford's woes didn't keep the Ford Mustang and the Ford Taurus from winning top quality honors in their classes. Toyota and Lexus each had two class victors as well -- the Yaris and Corolla for Toyota, and the ES 350 and LS sedans for Lexus. Other class winners included the Mazda MX-5, the Volvo C70, the Infiniti M-Series and the Chevrolet Malibu.

As mechanical defects have become rarer in new vehicles, the J.D. Power survey of 74,000 buyers has become more focused on subjective complaints; for more than a decade, the number one gripe from owners was wind noise. That approach does capture what makes people unhappy with their purchase, but can stumble because every buyer has their own definition of a problem.

Samsung UN32EH4000 LED-backlit LCD TV 720p $329


    * Clear Motion Rate of 60
  Experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. LED TVs with a CMR of 60-120 can display action-packed movement with sharp detail and vivid contrast while eliminating image distortion.

    * Wide color enhancer plus

      Wide color enhancer plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.
  * ConnectShare movie

      ConnectShare movie lets you watch videos, play music or view photos from a USB connection without needing to use a PC or special equipment. Simply plug your USB directly into your Samsung TV's USB port and watch on the big screen with friends and family.
    * HDMI
 HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a convenient high quality single cable digital audio/visual interface for connecting the TV to a digital cable box, satellite box, DVD and Blu-ray Disc player, PC computers, PC portable devices, tablets and devices featuring the HDMI output.

Pros: Outstanding picture quality, Reasonably Priced, Sound is excellent

Cons: Limited connectivity (Only two HDMI ports for input, the sound output is available only in digital no analog sound output), Hdmi slots are on the side of unit hard to access

32 inch TVs - Toshiba 32HL833B

32-inch LCD TV is one of the most popular consumer electronics products because the size is reasonable and doesn't take to much space specially if you have a small room.

There are also plenty of choice in this category and with the technology of today going small doesn't mean you have to give up high-def.

Toshiba 32HL833B

  • Edge LED backlighting; 
  • Full HD resolutions


  • Does not have 3D, Web viewer, HD
  • lowlights are just two HDMIs
  • poor audio
  • lack of Freeview HD
  • In terms of colour saturations, sharpness and contrast it is just regular nothing to be exited about.
Overall, it is a efficient TV that delivers the basics well. It misses a DVB-T2
tuner and a soundbar cinema upgrade which is crucial, though multimedia are surprisingly excellent.
