“Yahoo-Microsoft deal” Will they beat Google?

On July 29, 2009, Yahoo and Microsoft announced a partnership in Internet Search and advertising. Under the deal, Microsoft agrees to provide the underlying search technology on Yahoo’s popular Web sites.

Yahoo, being one of the biggest giant companies in the Web Industry lags behind in providing the best search engine on the web. The search results that Yahoo provides are not that deep which its competitors are providing. It means, somewhere the technology Yahoo is using in its search engine doesn’t have the power to crawl the web pages throughout the web. It takes more time to get the page listed in Yahoo search results in comparison to its competitors. With these drawbacks, Yahoo’s competitors have got an edge over it.

Microsoft, the father of technology, recently launched a new brand search engine named as Bing. It has been observed that Bing has the modern features embedded in it but Bing has failed to capture the market share in search engine and advertising. Unfortunately, today Bing is struggling to survive in the industry even after having the brand name with it.

Now, Microsoft and Yahoo have joined hands together to give a better search engine to the public. It is assumed that they are merging together to compete the leader in Search Engine technology, i.e., Google. Google has maximum market share and is satisfying its users to the maximum extent. While making a search on web, the first name strikes to the mind is “Goolge”. It is as fast as a rocket shot in the air, providing the in-depth search results and giving maximum satisfaction to the users. It has joined hands with the browsers like Mozilla Firefox. Firefox is the browser which has taken an edge over Microsoft’s Internet Explorer(all versions). This again gives a huge benefit to Google to retain its marketshare. With the latest technologies and great ideas, Google is leading the race of Internet Search Engine and Advertising.

+ =    

With this fight to lead, a few things are still unquestioned.

– Will Yahoo and Microsoft succeed to takeover the market of Google?

– Will they be able to generate the best ideas and use the high-level technology to beat the Search Engine and advertising giant i.e., Google?

– Does Google has that power to withstand the technological attacks of the two big names?

I believe, even if Yahoo and Microsoft succeed to takeover the business of Google, Google will be the winner because it would alone fight the battle with two big brands in the industry. On the contrary, if they would fail to beat Google, then it would be a BIG LOSS to the two companies.

Fortunately, Google is in a better codition in any of the two situation.

Sunday Depression

Friday is so bright,  spreads cheer and smiles,
I go home smiling wide, and plan the weekend’s aisle.

Two days off from work, seems a heavenly bliss,
No computer and emails, no ‘yes sir’, no deadlines miss!

The sleep that day is peaceful, I see gardens in my dreams,
And Saturday I enjoy, almost in my jeans.

Go out, party, eat the snacks, and meet all my peers,
‘Coz soon the day would get over, and Monday would come near.

Saturday night my sleep is disturbed, I see horrible nightmares,
My system crashes, boss thrashes, and says, “How you dare!”

Sunday morning I get wacky, stare clock all the time,
My voice gets almost choked, and I start talking in mime.

Evening gives me shivers, Oh its Monday coming again!
All that work and emails, just makes me go insane!

Why comes Monday, why do we go to work?
No more fun and music, and just work like a clerk?

Monday morning gives me blues, I moan in the dawn,
Say ‘Good Morning’ to colleagues, though my mouth yawns!

A software engineer

A Software Engineer’s feelings…..
It was raining heavily outside. Dark clouds gathered in the sky and nature was in its ominous best. I took a break from my work and went to the pantry to grab a cup of coffee. I had a sip and went near the window to see the rain pouring down heavily outside the glass structure. I was inside our huge office building, unruffled by even the fierceness of the nature.
Through the heavy transparent glass, I could see a small girl trying to hold on to her umbrella which the wind was snatching away from her. I felt sorry for the girl, and was happy that I was not in a similar pathetic situation. Yes. I take pride for the fact that I am a software engineer.
I have everything which a common man would envy; money, status, respect, you name it I have it. I always wanted to be software professional and here I am, working for one of the best firms in the world. But then, am I really happy? Now, I could see an imprint of my palm on the other glass window, through which I reminisced my past, basked in the warmth of the sun shine.
My childhood was so much of fun. I vividly remember those rainy days, when I hugged my mother tightly during sleeping listening to all the stories told by her. Now, I have a big house here, but then it is just a house, not a home. My parents are pretty far away from me now. I have a cell phone to talk to them everyday, but then I really miss those dinners which I had with my family everyday. I could easily afford to taste all the different cuisines these days, but the best of food there, lack the love and affection which is present in the food prepared by my mother.
I threw a lavish party for my colleagues for my birthday, but then they would never replace the birthdays when my friends secretly brought a cake and at the end, half of the cake would have ended up on my face. The couple of hundred bucks that u save for a long period just to give a treat to your friends in the road side chat shop can never give the pleasure even after spending a few thousand bucks these days.
The scene of me crying and refusing to have dinner on the day when I fought with my best friend came to my mind. Today, she has gone far away from me, taking away my love and with it my life, but I am sitting and coding here with a false smile on my face. Everyday I meet new people, but then I long ceased to make a new friend.
It’s true that I have a lot of things now. I have a nice bed, but no time to sleep. Lots of money, but no friends to spend it with. The latest designer clothes, but a worn out body . Awards for technical excellence, but no reward for the crave for peaceful ambience. A confident demeanor, but a reluctant and apathetic mind. Full of rain, but no sunshine even in the farthest distance.
Now, I could see the small girl on the road enjoying in the rain with her umbrella firmly in her grip. She might not have all the comforts which I have, but then she has the innocence and fun which I lost a long time back.
I have decided to come out of this false fantasy, even if it is at the expense of losing the tap of the software engineer. I am going to again enjoy my life. I am going to go out in the rain and play with the small kid now. I removed my tie, and went near my computer to shut it down. Just then, I saw a new mail alert in my mail box. I slowly opened outlook and I found a message from my manager with an attachment saying that there was a critical defect in the code and I have to fix it soon. I convinced myself that I am not going to get bogged down again by these pressures and stick to my decision. I ignored the mail and went to the rest room. After a couple of minutes, the software engineer in me came out, his shirt tucked in with the perfect tie knot, sat before the computer, and started typing,
I am looking into the defect and will send the patch files before EOD.
Software Engineer.

Searching about celebrities may be a Risky Affair

New York: It could be a risky affair if you are searching about celebrities like Brad Pitt or Beyonce on the Internet. As cyber criminals are now using their names to lure web browsers, an internet security firm has dubbed the actor and singer the most dangerous celebrities to search for on the internet

California-based McAfee said PCs of the fans searching for information and pictures of Pitt, have an 18 percent chance of being infected with a virus, spyware, spam, phishing and adware.

“Cyber criminals employ numerous methods, yet one of the simplest but most effective ways is to trick consumers into infecting themselves by capitalizing on Americans’ interest in celebrity gossip,” explained Jeff Green, senior vice president of McAfee’s Product Development & Avert Labs. “Tapping into current events, pop culture or commonly browsed sites is an easy way to achieve this,” he added. Web surfers looking for celebrity gossip, screen savers and ring tones are often directed to fake Internet sites that look legitimate but pose a risk to the security of their computers, according to the company.

Pitt and singer Justin Timberlake are the most dangerous men to search for on the internet, while Beyonce and Heidi Montag, the star of the reality television show ‘The Hills,’ top the list for women. Other celebrities on McAfee’s most dangerous list include singers Mariah Carey, Rihanna and Fergie and film stars Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz and George Clooney.

Green said Americans’ obsession with following celebrities’ lifestyles make them obvious targets. “We have to take precautions in casually navigating the Web since many subtle sites may be rife with malware for consumers’ computers,” he said, referring to software designed to infiltrate computer software without the consent of the owner.

Malware includes viruses, worms and spyware, which are computer programs that report back to a third party a user’s activity and Web-surfing habits. The reasons for planting spyware range from simple marketing purposes to more serious things like stealing files or passwords used to access sensitive financial information.


The CERN experiment – Big Bang Collider completes first test

The world’s largest particle collider passed its first major tests by firing two beams of protons in opposite directions around a 17-mile (27-kilometre) underground ring on Wednesday in what scientists hope is the next great step to understanding the makeup of the universe.

The start of the collider was described by scientists from the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, known by its French acronym CERN, as the biggest physics experiment in history using the most complicated scientific instrument ever built.

After a series of trial runs, two white dots flashed on a computer screen at 10:26 a.m. (0826 GMT) indicating that the protons had travelled clockwise along the full length of the 3.8 (b) billion US dollar Large Hadron Collider – described as the biggest physics experiment in history. (Watch).

Cheers erupted from the assembled scientists, including project leader Lyn Evans, in the collider’s control room at the Swiss-French border when the beam completed its lap.

Champagne corks popped in labs as far away as Chicago, where contributing scientists watched the proceedings by satellite.

Five hours later, scientists successfully fired a beam counterclockwise.

Physicists around the world now have much greater power to smash the components of atoms together in attempts to learn about their structure.

Robert Aymar, director-general of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, congratulated and thanked the assembled scientists in the collider’s control room at the Swiss-French border after the second beam completed its circular journey.

The organisation, known by its French acronym CERN, began firing the protons – a type of subatomic particle – around the tunnel in stages less than an hour earlier, with the first beam injection at 9:35 a.m. (0735 GMT).

Eventually two beams will be fired at the same time in opposite directions with the aim of recreating conditions a split second after the big bang, which scientists theorise was the massive explosion that created the universe.

“My first thought was relief,” said Evans, who has been working on the project since its inception in 1984. “This is a machine of enormous complexity. Things can go wrong at any time.”

He didn’t want to set a date, but said that he expected scientists would be able to conduct collisions for their experiments “within a few months.”

Schuhkraft, speaking from the Alice Control Room, was impressed with the enormous achievement of the test beam.

“I think I should also congratulate the machine. We were really not expecting to get the first beam twice after less than one hour because we saw actually the beam even three times around now the detectors and that was really a big feat thanks to the machine,” he said.

The collider is designed to push the proton beam close to the speed of light, whizzing 11,000 times a second around the tunnel.

Scientists hope to eventually send two beams of protons through two tubes about the width of fire hoses, speeding through a vacuum that is colder and emptier than outer space

The paths of these beams will cross, and a few protons will collide.

The collider’s two largest detectors – essentially huge digital cameras weighing thousands of tons – are capable of taking millions of snapshots a second.

The CERN experiments could reveal more about “dark matter,” antimatter and possibly hidden dimensions of space and time. It could also find evidence of the hypothetical particle – the Higgs boson – which is sometimes called the “God particle” because it is believed to give mass to all other particles, and thus to matter that makes up the universe.

The supercooled magnets that guide the proton beam heated slightly in the morning’s first test, leading to a pause to recool them before trying the opposite direction.

The start of the collider came over the objections of some who feared the collision of protons could eventually imperil the Earth by creating micro-black holes, subatomic versions of collapsed stars whose gravity is so strong they can suck in planets and other stars.

James Gillies, chief spokesman for CERN dismissed this as nonsense before Wednesday’s start.
CERN was backed by leading scientists like Britain’s Stephen Hawking , who declared the experiments to be absolutely safe.

Gillies said that the most dangerous thing that could happen would be if a beam at full power were to go out of control, and that would only damage the accelerator itself and burrow into the rock around the tunnel.

Nothing of the sort occurred on Wednesday, though the accelerator is still probably a year away from full power.

The project organised by the 20 European member nations of CERN has attracted researchers from 80 nations.

Some 1,200 are from the United States, an observer country that contributed 531 (m) million US dollar. Japan, another observer, is a major contributor.

Some scientists have been waiting for 20 years to use the LHC.

The complexity of manufacturing it required groundbreaking advances in the use of supercooled, superconducting equipment. The 2001 start and 2005 completion dates were pushed back by two years each, and the cost of the construction was 25 percent higher than originally budgeted in 1996, CERN’s director-general at the time said.

Smaller colliders have been used for decades to study the makeup of the atom. Less than 100 years ago scientists thought protons and neutrons were the smallest components of an atom’s nucleus, but in stages since then experiments have shown they were made of still smaller quarks and gluons and that there were other forces and particles.
