Top List of Web applications

According to Wikipedia " In software engineering, a Web application or webapp is an application that is accessed via web over a network such as the Internet or an intranet."
" Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain Web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity. Web applications are used to implement Webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, discussion boards, Weblogs, MMORPGs and many other functions."So Now you Know What Actually Webapps are.

Lock the Windows Sidebar

While the Windows Sidebar is a nice piece of functional eye candy for home users, it can be an administrator's nightmare in a business environment. Having users installing an endless amount of gadgets off of the internet can at the very least waste work time and bandwidth and a worse case scenario would be a security breach. You can limit or eliminate the Windows Sidebar and keep control of what, if any, gadgets are able to run on the users' machines.1. Click the Start Button.

2. Click All Programs and select Accessories.

3. Click Run.

4. Input gpedit.msc and click OK.

5. When the UAC prompt appears, click Continue.

6. In the left pane, select Computer Configuration and double-click Administrative Templates.

7. Double-click Windows Components.

8. Select Windows Sidebar.

9. In the right pane, select one of the four settings to limit usage of the Windows Sidebar. To enable a setting, double-click the setting and select the Enabled radio button and click OK. The choices are:

Killer adsense Tip

There’s no doubt that images attract the eye, so why not use them to your advantage!I’ve seen a number of websites that have placed a small image close to their AdSense ads to draw the visitor’s eye to the ad and hopefully, encourage them to click on the ad. There are a number of ways that you can do this, and which technique you choose really depends on the style of your site (in a future post we’ll look in details at this trick and show you how different ads respond to different images). The idea is that you place an ad close to the ad that you want to draw attention to, but not make the image part of the ad (because that would totally go against the Google AdSense terms and conditions. This works if you get the right image (again, relevant to your site and the subject) and you position it well. To get the right combination, there’s no doubt that you’ll need to test one style against another here and figure out which works best for your site. Also, once you’ve found one image …

Ultimate Guide to Photo Shop

Ever wanted to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop, but had no idea where to start?Most Adobe Photoshop tutorials (including my own) are for people who are already familiar with Adobe Photoshop. This tutorial goes right back to the DAWN OF TIME! :) ...and is designed for the Adobe Photoshop beginner.This basic, thirty-minute tutorial is not a comprehensive instruction manual. It only gives you the very basic features you need to know to start using Adobe Photoshop.

Surf even offline with google gears

Google in a press release states that Gears “marks an important step in the evolution of web applications because it addresses a major user concern: availability of data and applications when there’s no Internet connection available, or when a connection is slow or unreliable.” They go on to say that making the browser environment more powerful is increasingly important (Google snatched up a couple of Firefox developers – this makes even more sense in the light of this announcement). You can install this for a couple of operating systems, though Google warns that this is an early-access developer’s release (which would be called Alpha, but Google calls it Beta). Like many recent announcements, this one too had been foreshadowed in Google’s internal documents which leaked last year. By moving web applications into the offline sector, Google Inc is moving into Microsoft Office competition territory even more clearly.Gears is also free & open source, so Google is hoping to get the c…

Time to forget PHOTOSHOP !

Now time to get Paintshop Pro X
What's that? Don't know what Corel PaintShop Pro X is? Well, it's nearest competitor is Adobe Photoshop - and in fact, most of the people who use it consider it vastly superior to Photoshop.

Generally speaking, it's a bit easier to use and the interface is nicer. It can do just about everything Photoshop can - and has lots of features PS doesn't have! It seems like it's also "faster" to work with than Photoshop. Undos are done almost instantly, the program loads fast, and it really responds quickly to your commands. It also makes it easy to adjust the different layers on your image - much more "point-and-click" then Photoshop.

As for ease of use, it really has that covered! There are things it does with a single mouse click that take me a half-dozen steps to do in Photoshop! And the results are stunning!

When it comes to imaging software, this is really one of the big boys. No matter what you want to do with a pho…

Free Airtel GPRS is back

Before a month or two, everyone with an Airtel prepaid SIM was able to connect to the internet for free. But the Airtel people came to know and fire walled their proxy servers. From there onwards I was in search for the new settings. Now I have got them and GPRS is back. This time with much more power and speed and that too free.
Here are the new settings.

Access point name:airtelmms.comProxy server address:100.1.200.211Proxy port number:8080Enjoy for as much time as you can.

(Update: This hack is not working now. Airtel has firewalled this proxy also. It seems they are going to launch 3G in India and that is the reason they firewalled this server. If you want to see fun things on your mobile, type in 100.1.200.10, 100.1.200.150, 100.1.200.126 as proxy server adress and see what comes. Just for fun, they are the apache servers of airtel.)

Google Font - Write anything in "Google font" in seconds

I was just thinking if I could make a google like logo. I messed a lot with Adobe PS2 and it took me a lot of time to make a logo like google's. But accidentally I came across this site which produces google like logos for free. take a look for yourself.

It does help a lot of people to make their logos especially if they want to write anything about google. This google font really catches eye, as there are a lot of people who swear by google. To create a google like logo, visit googlefont.com , enter the name of to be fonted and hit "Create font". This is simple isn't it. You can write anything in Google font and that too in a jiffy. You won't spend a single minute wasting on Photoshop and still get a Google Like font as if it were done in photoshop.

The First Cyberwar? Groundzero: Estonia

The attackers used a giant network of bots, perhaps as many as 1 million computers in places as far away as the U.S. and Vietnam — to amplify the impact of their assault. In a sign of their financial resources, there is evidence that they rented time on other so-called botnets. The 10 largest assaults blasted streams of 90 Mbit/s for 10 hours each

Stephen Colbert makes play for iPhone at D5

For most of us, having Steve Jobs' direct attention is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (well, actually, it's a never-in-a-lifetime event for the overwhelming majority of the populace, but stay with us here). Stephen Colbert got his this week, introducing Viacom CEO Phillipe Dauman via video clip at D5. Jobs was, of course, a big player at D, and Colbert did his best to take advantage by suggesting that a gratis iPhone in his pocket -- followed by a mention on his show -- might be just the trick to spurring sales (notice that he's ogling an imaginary iPhone in this screen grab). We suspect the effort was for naught; iPhones are as scarce now as they've ever been, never mind the fact that the media has generated pretty much all the buzz Apple can handle free of charge. Might we suggest working a company that's a little less stingy with prerelease units, Stephen?
