After getting w.bloggar a good start - installation, configuration, etc. - it is sad to say that this promising free software falls short of its promise. This is to say the least for blogger users.

What's the problem?

There is no title bar.

It is a house without a roof, a body without a head, an iceberg that has no tip...

It is a shame...

SINGAPORE - Two thirds of businesses in Singapore have encountered cyber attacks in the past year, according to the 2010 Symantec State of Enterprise Security Study.

So, the Government is introducing three initiatives to secure the cyber space landscape in a holistic manner.

One is the Cyber Security Awareness Alliance to educate end-users and businesses of the impact of leaking information on the Web. It will create an online portal - the Virtual Cyber Security Park - in collaboration with the National Crime Prevention Council. Students will be the first to test the portal, which will feature interactive modes such as educational online gaming.

"What we're going to do is put things online, such that people can go in there in a fun way - understand it, and pick up new skills," said Ms Jessica Tan, Microsoft's managing director. Microsoft is a member of the Alliance.

The second initiative is to safeguard against cyber threats like the malicious DDoS attack. The key threat of such an attack is "its ability to bring down the infrastructure, the ability to communicate and the ability to change information. And that could have a crippling effect, especially if it affects things like first-aid respondents, like the police", said Symantec's director for government relations Ilias Chantzos.

To pre-empt such scenarios, 75 agencies will work towards improving the collation of security-related information across a private network.

The third initiative will be to build on the telecommunications regulatory framework, and a Code of Practice on infocomm security aligned to international standards will be issued by the third quarter of this year.

Acting Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Lui Tuck Yew announced these initiatives yesterday at the annual Information Security Seminar.

They come under the Infocomm Security Masterplan 2, a five-year roadmap to protect Singapore against cyber attacks.

Google to leave China

Google to leave China on April 10: state media
Posted: 19 March 2010 1211 hrs

SHANGHAI: US Internet giant Google will close its business in China next month and may announce its plans in the coming days, Chinese media reported on Friday, after rows over censorship and hacking.

The China Business News quoted an official with an unidentified Chinese advertising agency as saying Google would go through with its threatened withdrawal on April 10, but that Google had yet to confirm the pull-out.

The agency is a business partner of Google, the report said.

The report did not specify whether Google would close all or part of its operations in the country.

The newspaper quoted an unidentified Google staff member as saying the company may announce on Monday the details of its exit from China and compensation for its local staff.

Google China spokeswoman Marsha Wang declined to comment on the report, telling AFP only that there had been "no update" on the company's situation.

The report was the latest in a series of clues to emerge recently indicating Google planned to leave China, which has the world's largest population of online users, at 384 million.

Google has cried foul over what it said were cyberattacks aimed at its source code and the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists.

The Financial Times reported last week that Google was "99.9 per cent" certain to abandon google.cn, citing an unnamed source.

Chinese media said Wednesday that Google sent a notice to clients saying google.cn could close at the end of March.

The issue has sparked a simmering war of words between China and the administration of US President Barack Obama, which has called on Beijing to allow an unfettered Internet.

The dispute has exacerbated mounting tensions between the two over a range of trade and diplomatic issues.

Beijing tightly controls online content in a vast system dubbed the "Great Firewall of China", removing information it deems harmful such as pornography and violent content, but also politically sensitive material.

Google has continued to filter google.cn results to abide by Chinese censorship demands, but says it will eventually stop the screening.

Google confirmed earlier this week that it had received a letter purportedly from a group of 27 Chinese advertising agencies calling for the US company to open talks on compensation for possible business losses if it leaves China.

However, representatives of several of the firms subsequently told AFP they knew nothing of the letter and Chinese media reports have raised doubts about its authenticity.

Google's Wang told AFP the company is still "reviewing" the letter.

Google stops China censorship, Beijing condemns move
Posted: 23 March 2010 1508 hrs

WASHINGTON - A day after Google said it would no longer censor its search engine results in China, angering Beijing, Chinese access to websites covering sensitive topics remained blocked Tuesday.

Google announced Monday in a blog post that it had shifted mainland Chinese users of its Google.cn search engine to an uncensored site in the former British colony Hong Kong, drawing anger from Beijing and raising questions about the Web giant's future in the world's biggest online market.

But Tuesday, searches from mainland computers of subjects like "Falun Gong" and "June 4" -- referring to the Tiananmen pro-democracy protests in 1989 -- produced the message: "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page."

The same searches on Google.com.hk from computers in Hong Kong displayed full results -- suggesting that China was deploying its "Great Firewall" of web censorship.

While ending censorship in China, the Mountain View, California-based Google said it planned to keep sales, research and development teams in the country of some 384 million Internet users.

Google's decision came a little more than two months after the Internet titan threatened to close its Chinese operations because of censorship and cyberattacks it said originated from China.

China said Google was "totally wrong" to stop censorship and blame Beijing for the cyberattacks that allegedly targeted the email accounts of Chinese human rights activists.

"Google has violated its written promise it made when entering the Chinese market by stopping filtering its searching service," said the official in charge of the Internet bureau of the State Council Information Office.

"We're uncompromisingly opposed to the politicization of commercial issues, and express our discontent and indignation to Google for its unreasonable accusations and conduct."

The White House said it was "disappointed" Google could not reach a deal with Beijing and reiterated that US President Barack Obama is "committed to Internet freedom and... opposed to censorship."

Drummond, Google's top lawyer, said "figuring out how to make good on our promise to stop censoring search on Google.cn has been hard.

"We very much hope that the Chinese government respects our decision, though we are well aware that it could at any time block access to our services."

Google co-founder Sergey Brin told The New York Times that shifting the Chinese service to Hong Kong was not given a clear-cut stamp of approval by Beijing but "there was a sense that Hong Kong was the right step."

"There's a lot of lack of clarity," he said. "Our hope is that the newly begun Hong Kong service will continue to be available in mainland China."

Drummond said "the Chinese government has been crystal clear throughout our discussions that self-censorship is a non-negotiable legal requirement."

He said providing uncensored search from Hong Kong is "entirely legal and will meaningfully increase access to information for people in China."

Beijing tightly controls online content, removing information it deems harmful such as pornography and violent content, but also politically sensitive material.

Google launched Google.cn in January 2006 after agreeing to censor websites for content banned under Chinese law. Google.cn is the second-largest search engine in China after Chinese search engine Baidu.com.

Google's decision to end censorship in China was welcomed by human rights and technology groups and US lawmakers.

"It is a remarkable, and welcomed, action and an important boost of encouragement for millions of Chinese human rights activists and political and religious dissidents," said US Representative Christopher Smith, a Republican
from New Jersey.

Arvind Ganesan, business and human rights director at Human Rights Watch, called it "an important step to challenge the Chinese government's use of censorship to maintain its control over its citizens."

"Google has taken a courageous position against censorship," said Lucie Morillon of Paris-based media rights group Reporters Without Borders.

Leading Chinese dissident Wei Jingsheng, who spent nearly two decades in prison and now lives in the United States, said he knew China "would not back down."

"But we also knew that Google's motto was 'Don't be evil.' So there was no point on which to compromise," Wei said.

Leslie Harris, president of the Center for Democracy & Technology, praised what she called Google's "continued effort to enable China's people with unfiltered access to robust sources of information from all over the world."

China says Google "totally wrong" to stop web censorship
Posted: 23 March 2010 0655 hrs

BEIJING - China said Tuesday Google had "violated its written promise" and is "totally wrong" to stop censoring its Chinese language search engine and to blame Beijing for alleged hacker attacks.

The comments came from an official in charge of the Internet bureau of the State Council Information Office, according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.

"Google has violated its written promise it made when entering the Chinese market by stopping filtering its searching service and blaming China in insinuation for alleged hacker attacks," said the official.

"This is totally wrong. We're uncompromisingly opposed to the politicisation of commercial issues, and express our discontent and indignation to Google for its unreasonable accusations and conducts," the official added.

Hours earlier Google said it had ended censorship of its Chinese-language search engine Google.cn and was redirecting mainland Chinese users to an uncensored site in Hong Kong.

Google also said it intended to continue research and development work in China and to maintain a sales presence there.

Google's lifting of censorship on Google.cn comes a little more than two months after the Mountain View, California-based company said it had been the victim of cyberattacks originating from China.

The White House said it was disappointed that Google could not reach a deal with Beijing.

"We are disappointed that Google and the Chinese government were unable to reach an agreement that would allow Google to continue operating its search services in China on its Google.cn website," National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer said in a statement.

Google and China: where do we go from here?

China without Google: 'a lose-lose scenario'
17-March-2010 01:44 PM

JOE McDONALD, AP Business Writer

BEIJING. China without Google a prospect that looks increasingly likely could mean no more maps on mobile phones. A free music service that has helped to fight piracy might be in jeopardy. China's fledgling Web outfits would face less pressure to improve, eroding their ability to one day compete abroad.

Chinese news reports say Google Inc. is on the verge of making good on a threat to shutter its China site, Google.cn, because Beijing forces the Internet giant to censor search results. The reports indicated that Google had, in fact, already stopped censoring results, but searches Tuesday for sensitive topics like "Tiananmen massacre" appeared to still return only whitewashed results.

A Google spokesman, Scott Rubin, denied censorship had stopped and would not confirm whether Google.cn might close.

The extent of a possible pullout from China is unclear. But on top of a local search site that Google says it may close, services that might be affected range from advertising support for Chinese companies to online entertainment.

"If Google leaves, it's a lose-lose scenario, instead of Google loses and others gain," said Edward Yu, president of Analysys International, a Beijing research firm.

Google says it is in talks with Beijing following its Jan. 12 announcement that it no longer wants to comply with Beijing's extensive Web controls. But China's industry minister insisted Friday the company must obey Chinese law, which appears to leave few options other than closing Google.cn, which has about 35 percent of China's search market.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt said last week something would happen soon, but Rubin, speaking by phone from Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, said no action had yet been taken.

Such a step could have repercussions for major Chinese companies as well as local Web surfers. It would deliver a windfall to local rival Baidu Inc., China's major search engine, with 60 percent of the market. But other companies rely on Google for search, maps and other services and might be forced to find alternatives.

China Mobile Ltd., the world's biggest phone company by subscribers, with 527 million accounts, uses Google for mobile search and maps. Baidu offers mobile search, but China Mobile passed up a partnership with it earlier after they failed to agree on terms, according to industry analysts. Millions of mobile customers might lose access to Google's Chinese-language map service.

A key issue is whether Beijing, angry and embarrassed by Google's public defiance, would allow the company to continue running other operations, including advertising and a fledgling mobile phone businesses in China if Google.cn closes.

China promotes Internet use for business and education but bars access to sites run by human rights and political activists and some news outlets. Officials who defend China's controls by pointing to countries that bar content such as child pornography are stung that Google has drawn attention to how much more pervasive Chinese limits are.

Chinese Web surfers are blocked from seeing Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and major blog-hosting services abroad and a Google pullout would leave them increasingly isolated.

Google hopes to keep operating its Beijing research and development center, advertising sales offices and mobile phone business, according to a person familiar with the company's thinking. But the person said the company won't do that if it believes its decision to stop censoring search results will jeopardize employees in China. Industry analysts estimate Google has a work force of 700 in China.

The government says Chinese mobile phone carriers will be allowed to use Google's Android operating system but there has been no word on whether efforts to sell its own phones in China might be affected. Google postponed the launch of two phones with a major Chinese carrier due to the dispute.

Uncertainty also surrounds Google's China music portal, a free, advertising-supported service launched last year in partnership with four global music companies and 14 independent labels. Industry analysts say it has helped to undercut China's rampant music piracy by offering an alternative to unlicensed copying.

"Without that, are we back to, `Piracy wins'?" said Duncan Clark, managing director of BDA China Ltd., a technology market research firm.

The music service is run by Top100.cn, a company part-owned by Google, but can be accessed only through Google.cn. Top100.cn's executive chairman, Erik Zhang, said it is preparing for the possibility that Google.cn might close but said his company has not been told whether that will happen. He declined to give other details.

The biggest impact of a Google departure could lie behind the scenes, where Chinese companies, many of them small entrepreneurs, rely on its AdWords advertising service, Gmail e-mail and documents services.

Those might be disrupted if Beijing turns up Internet filters to block access to Google's sites abroad. Its U.S. site has a Chinese-language search engine but is already inaccessible due to government filters.

In an uncomfortable irony for Beijing, Google might suffer little commercial loss from a pullout while China's own companies are hurt.

The bulk of Google's estimated $300 million in 2009 revenues in China came from export-oriented companies that would need to keep advertising on its sites abroad even if Google.cn closes, according to Yu.

"We believe the majority of revenue would still be kept on, with keyword purchases listed on Google.com instead of Google.cn," he said.

The loss of competitive pressure from Google also might slow Chinese development in search and other Internet services, Yu said.

"This is definitely a bad thing for Chinese companies that want to go abroad in the future," he said.

The industry minister, Li Yizhong, said Friday that China's Internet industry would develop without Google. But even some Chinese industry leaders who normally toe the government line in public are warning that controls on Internet companies and media are handicapping their growth.

Beijing has steadily tightened controls over Internet content and foreign investment in the industry. Video sharing sites must have state-owned media outlets as partners. People in the industry say it is getting harder to register privately financed sites.

"Without full and fair market competition, there will be no quality, no excellence, no employment opportunities, no stability and no real rise of China," said the chairman of major Chinese portal Sohu Inc., Charles Zhang, in a speech in February, according to a report on Sohu's Web site.

"How do we do this practically?" Zhang said. "The problem is complicated, but the fundamental point is to limit the power of the government." - AP

PC AutoShutdown – the simplest it can get

IBM PC with green monochrome display.

Image via Wikipedia

I have always been a fan of complex softwares – and most especially when these are freebies.

Anyway, one simple functionality that has always fascinated me is shutting down a PC automatically. When I don’t need to worry about getting the harddisk so hot after being on for long, long hours, or that the PC is simply running idle, etc., etc., then why not do auto shutdown?

I searched through the web, and of course, there are a myriad of available softwares, some free, while some, you have to buy. And guess what, some are simple, while others are so complex that you get more than what you actually wanted initially, and still, pardon the jargon, some are giving you more of their ‘crap’.


I checked here and there, and it is as simple as

1. creating a .bat file in notepad.

2. putting in just 2 lines:


shutdown –s

(actually, only the 2nd line matters)

3. schedule a task that calls up your batch file (your filename.bat in step 1), where you specify the frequency and run time of your simple but effective auto shutdown ‘program’.


C’est tout!

Windows 7 and ZoneAlarm Firewall

Firewall separating zones of trust

Image via Wikipedia

As much as I am wanting to still use Zonealarm in Windows 7, after about half a year of trying another firewall software running in Windows 7, I don’t think that Zonealarm will be able to run in Windows 7 without causing any trouble.

I mean, I did try it many, many times – perhaps about 10 times – to see which software is causing my PC to hand up and freeze, with plugging off the only way to shutdown the machine.

Only when I uninstalled ZoneAlarm (at least I’m trying the free version), then my machine went back to working properly and smoothly.

And I’m running now a legal version of Windows 7. I just bought the upgrade version, since my current set-up qualifies me to do that, and the money side as well. It’s more economical, as what the Windows support lady insisted.

So, what’s your experience. I mean, way back when Windows 7 was starting to get broadcasted and installed, I have already read in many forums that Zonealarm may not work. 6 months down the road after my first encounter with Windows 7, which I also tried ZoneAlarm back then, still the incompatibility existed.

So right now, I am using MSSE, the Microsoft Security Essential, and I should be covered just the same.

And just like most of things in our lives, computing is also a personal experience. So what’s your story?

New Windows phones won't run current apps

Windows Mobile 6.Image via Wikipedia

PETER SVENSSON, AP Technology Writer
06-March-2010 05:13 AM

NEW YORK - Microsoft Corp. has said its new software for smart phones, Windows Phone 7 series, is a "clean break" with the past. Now it's clear just how clean that break is: The new phones, expected late this year, won't run any applications written for older versions of Microsoft's phone software.

In a blog post Thursday, Microsoft executive Charlie Kindel, who handles contact with outside software developers, said that jettisoning support for older applications was necessary to make the new operating system as powerful and user-friendly as possible.

The announcement is perhaps most disappointing to companies that have created their own software to run on Windows phones issued to their employees. The news also leaves software developers with a dilemma: they can write applications for Windows Mobile 6.5, which will soon be a dead end, or they can write for Windows Phone 7, which isn't coming out until later this year.

Phone providers compete in part by providing support for as many applications as they can, and everyone is trying to catch up to Apple Inc.'s successful App Store, which has more than 100,000 applications. Microsoft is leaving behind tens of thousands of applications written for different versions of Windows Mobile that go back more than a decade.

Few of those applications are up to today's standards. They're also designed for phones that came with styluses for precise input. Windows Phone 7 Series is designed for touch screens that work well with fingers but don't work with fine styluses.

Palm Inc. made a similar "clean break" last year, abandoning an operating system that was more than a decade old in favor of a completely new one. However, the new system is able to run applications written for the old one.

Kindel said Microsoft still will support Windows Mobile 6.5 "for years to come," and expects some new devices with that software will come out. AP

Microsoft CEO: Google merits regulatory scrutiny

Google Inc.Image via Wikipedia

03-March-2010; 09:46 AM

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer intends to keep the regulatory heat on Google as his company strives to lessen its rival's dominance of Internet search.

In an appearance Tuesday at a search engine conference, Ballmer said Microsoft believes Google Inc. has done things to gain an unfair advantage in the Internet's lucrative search advertising market. He didn't specify the alleged misconduct.

"We are expressing some of the issues and frustrations we see" with antitrust regulators, Ballmer said. "Sometimes (it's) unsolicited, sometimes because we have been asked."

Google declined to comment Tuesday. But it has said its actions are aimed at providing better experiences for Web surfers and advertisers.

Yahoo Inc., which is about to team up with Microsoft in search, seems less inclined to get regulators involved as the two companies gang up on Google.

"I am actually not interested in government intervention in anything," Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz told reporters during a Tuesday lunch to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary. "I think for the most part markets work. I don't wish antitrust on anyone."

Microsoft already has helped convince U.S. regulators that Google would break antitrust laws in two proposed deals: a search advertising partnership with Yahoo that was scrapped in 2008 and a digital books settlement that still needs federal court approval. Yahoo also lobbied regulators to oppose the agreement that would give Google the electronic rights to millions of hard-to-find books.

Ciao, an online shopping comparison service owned by Microsoft, has filed an antitrust complaint against Google in Europe. Regulators there say they are looking into those allegations and similar ones made by two other sites, Foundem and ejustice.fr.

Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, has had its own troubles with regulators. Its bundling of personal computer software triggered a court dispute with the U.S. Justice Department that forced the company to change the way it packages software with its Windows operating system. Microsoft later tussled with EU regulators, too.

Since Microsoft's own antitrust showdown started in the late 1990s, more people have been relying on their computers chiefly as a conduit to the Internet. The evolution has turned Google's Internet gateway and other online services into a major threat to Microsoft, which has tried to respond by investing billions of dollars in search technology.

Microsoft has made little headway. Even with some progress since unveiling an upgraded search engine called Bing nine months ago, Microsoft remains a distant third in the U.S. search market.

Ballmer is counting on Microsoft's 10-year search partnership with No. 2 Yahoo to help close the gap. Regulators cited Google's 65 percent share of the U.S. search market as one of the reasons for allowing Microsoft and Yahoo to work together.

When the alliance kicks in late this year, Microsoft will start processing search requests on Yahoo's Web site and pay most of the ad revenue to its new partner. As Microsoft fields more search requests, Ballmer expects the company to collect more data that it could analyze and use to help improve search results. That, in turn, could help the company lure away Google users.

"There is an advantage to having the power of two, as opposed to the power of one," Ballmer told the crowd at the Search Marketing Expo.

When asked whether he thought Microsoft would overtake Google in Internet search, Ballmer indicated it probably will be a long time before there's a changing of the guard.

"I don't know how old I will be when that will happen," said Ballmer, 53.

As part of its efforts to challenge Google, Microsoft has sought help from Twitter and Facebook two popular services for sharing information and photographs.

Microsoft, like Google and Yahoo, pays an undisclosed sum for better access to Twitter's index of short messages. In a bigger partnership, Microsoft spent $240 million for a 1.6 percent stake in Facebook and processes search requests on that site.

Responding to questions, Ballmer played down the possibility of Microsoft buying Twitter or Facebook, which are both privately held.

Shares of Microsoft, which is based in Redmond, Wash., fell 56 cents, or 1.9 percent, to close Tuesday at $28.46. Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., gained $8.37, or 1.6 percent, to $541.06, while Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Yahoo lost 6 cents to $15.73. - AP

A Move Against Piracy?

DVDImage via Wikipedia

RealNetworks will stop selling DVD copying product
04-March-2010; 11:40 AM

SAN FRANCISCO RealNetworks Inc. said Wednesday that it will stop selling technology that lets consumers copy DVDs to their computer hard drives, settling a handful of lawsuits filed against the company by Hollywood's six major movie studios.

Under the settlement terms, RealNetworks is barred from selling its RealDVD product or other similar technology, the company said.

The Seattle-based digital entertainment company will pay $4.5 million to the studios for litigation costs and refund purchases of about 2,700 customers who bought the product.

The Walt Disney Co.'s Disney Studio, Sony Corp.'s Sony Pictures and several others sued RealNetworks in 2008, arguing RealDVD is an illegal pirating tool that would stop consumers from buying movies on DVD that they could cheaply rent, copy and return.

RealNetworks lawyers had argued the software had piracy protections that limited a DVD owner to making a single copy, and said RealDVD gave consumers a legitimate way to back up copies of movies legally purchased.

U.S. District Court Judge Marilyn Hall Patel initially barred sales of RealDVD on a temporary basis in October 2008 a few days after the $30 software began selling saying it appeared to violate federal law against digital piracy. She ordered detailed court filings and a trial.

Then, in August, the judge ruled in favor of the studios by granting a preliminary injunction against RealDVD, pending a full trial.

And in January, the judge dismissed a RealNetworks counterclaim alleging antitrust violations.

RealNetworks was appealing the injunction against selling RealDVD; as part of the settlement it will withdraw the appeal.

The company hopes to "find mutually beneficial ways" to harness its technology to share movies with users, RealNetworks President and acting-CEO Bob Kimball said in a statement.

Daniel Mandil, general counsel and chief content protection officer for the Motion Picture Association of America, said in a statement that the group is "gratified" by the ruling.

"Judge Patel's rulings and this settlement affirm what we have said from the very start of this litigation: It is illegal to bypass the copyright protections built into DVDs designed to protect movies against theft," he said.

RealNetworks shares fell 7 cents in after-hours trading, after finishing regular trading down 9 cents at $4.84. - AP

I wanted to post this one immediately when I learned that the Enterprise Edition is no longer available.

I know, I said that the escape route (most appropriate term, I suppose) is to install Windows 7 Enterprise Edition, which is valid for 90 days - until you figure out that you are either purchasing a license for Windows 7 (Home, Professional, or Ultimate) - or, you fall back to Vista or XP (which will be supported until 2014).

My apologies. I took some lines, and swallowed also the hook and the sinker. My shame.

Hope that I now clarified myself.

I'm sticking to Windows 7...
