iTunes updates to 9.1, adds syncing for iPad support,Breaks Sync With Jailbroken Devices?

31 Mar

Apple has updated its free jukebox software for Mac and Windows late afternoon, just in time for the official iPad launch this month. iTunes 9.1 which brings several changes and enhancements, including support for syncing the iPad.In anticipation of the iBookstore, the “Audiobooks” section of iTunes has been renamed to “Books” and now allows users to manage both audio books and eBooks.

Apple says iTunes 9.1 lets you organize and sync books downloaded from the iBooks app on the iPad or manually added to your iTunes library. Like with the iPhone, iPad owners will need to connect their device to Desktop iTunes via a USB cable in order to transfer e-book purchases to their iTunes libraries.

iTunes 9.1 also addressed half a dozen Security issues, including those related to the maliciously crafted images and video files that could allow hackers to execute arbitrary code or launch denial-of-service attacks. Both Mac and windows weigh in at a little over 100MB each and can be downloaded at apple.com/itunes/download.

However, in addition to the other features mentioned below, some users are reporting that iTunes 9.1 seems to have broken sync on some jailbroken devices. Initially it had appeared that my jailbroken iPhone 3GS was affected, although rebooting my computer re-enabled sync. If you experience issues with syncing your iPhone or iPod touch after applying the update, restarting your computer should fix the problem.

Some good features of this version

  • Synchronization

automatically convert music with a high bitrate down to 128kbps                          AAC when syncing with an iPhone or iPod touch. This feature has                          been present in iTunes for some time, although it was only available                     to iPod nano and Shuffle owners

  • Rename, rearrange or remove Genius Mixes

Genius Mixes has also been updated, adding the ability to rename,                         rearrange, and remove any Genius Mix. Additionally, users can also                     access Genius Mixes via the iTunes DJ feature.

This feature is also compatible with the file transfer functionality in the Google Talk client software, so you can share files directly from the web version to the desktop version.

File transfer is available in orkut and iGoogle only for now. Google promises to bring this functionality to Gmail soon.

Block Flash animations in Google Chrome

29 Mar

Are you interested in blocking Flash Animations on sites which slows up your PC speed on opening and the site which you like to open often .so here the solution through which you can just turn of the flash animations in your browsers. For this go to the Chrome Extension Gallery and I found a very good flash blocking extension. It’s called Flash Block.

The main benefit of using this extension is that you can reduce the memory usage, CPU cycle, web-page loading time and broadband usage charge. It will also block advertisements.

(click here to download)

how does it work..???

Once installed, Flash animations will show as a grayed out icon in your browser window. To view them, just click on them once.

The interesting thing about this extension is that, after installing, when you visit a site you will see a placeholder in the place of flash contents or flash videos. If you want to view the content, just click the placeholder, other flash contents on that page remains blocked.

we can also disable it manually by entering their URLs into the white list,from the extension options menu.

Pricing of these are some what higher than the iPhone price. But hope with these applications will have some more high graphics and many game play elements.

Some Useful Tips For Google Chrome

5 Feb

Google chrome is best emerged among the browser in the market. no doubt has very good efficiency and good speed among all the browsers available. google chrome is what I can say a user-friendly browser . even u can also make it working cool with some of my tips described below.

1. Make Chrome use less memory.

Google chrome is the multi tab browser. multi-tab browser means that each tab uses its own source of memory on your computer.this was designed to make online applications run faster. don’t worry about the memory space usage here is the solution  through which you can use the browser by your choice.

–process-per-tab

this is the default mode of you chrome .in this every tab takes it own memory and make each tab to run with its best speed  and make the browser stable. but it consumes memory

–process-per-site

this will make a single process for unique site.if you have two tabs for Google and all other for maventech’ blog then they all will be listed in two process.

–single-process

The simplest mode; all tabs run in a single process, much like the other browsers we have now. This setting frees up memory for other applications.

Create a shortcut for Chrome. Open the Properties tab. Edit the Target field as shown in the picture by appending –single-process to the path.

2. Manage tabs with the Task Manager

This is an offshoot of Google Chrome’s multi-process nature which allows each tab to run separate from the other. This allows us to manage, reload or shut down each tab without affecting the rest of our browsing. All this can be done through the Task Manager. PressShift and Escape to start the task manager or right click on the blue top bar. An unresponsive tab can be shut down without bringing down the browser by a simple press of the End process button.

Google Chrome 4.0 unleashed

27 Jan

Google has released its 4.0 version with of course many enhancements. this browser could be downloaded from Google chrome site and even we can upgrade the existing version by following upgrade instructions. since chrome have come a far way and overcoming Firefox.

there are few differences in both the versions they are as follows

1. Bookmark synchronisation

If you’ve got a Google Account (who hasn’t?), Chrome will upload your bookmarks to the web. You can access them via a Google docs folder or even synchronize them all with any other installation of any other browser. As far as I’m aware, Chrome’s is the only browser which gives us this facility.

2. Extensions

Extensions  were not supported in earlier versions but with release in version 3.0 we have to add extensions in command line parameter to the Chrome shortcut.but with the release of this version extensions are available and with the increase in the version they have introduce around 2000 extensions at google website

I like Chrome. It’s a great if you’re surfing the web or using online applications and need a fast, stable browser. In my opinion, Firefox still offers a better all-round experience for power users and developers, but Chrome is catching up fast.

Haiti earthquake claims 1,40,000 lives

16 Jan

Around 1,40,000 people are estimated to have died in the massive earthquake that hit Haiti.

The Haitian government has said that while 40,000 people have been buried, at least a hundred thousand are still under the rubble.

Authorities have also said that the main concern now is that desperation is turning to violence.

There are reports of gangs of robbers preying on survivors desperately awaiting aid. Police are being rushed to the areas from where reports of robberies are coming in.

Some looting broke out in downtown Port-au-Prince, with a body burned and at least two shots fired.

Three days after the earthquake, governments across the world were pouring relief supplies and medical teams into the quake-hit Caribbean state, the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.

But due to huge logistical hurdles, including a clogged airport and badly damaged port, and the sheer scale of the destruction, the aid was not yet reaching the victims.
