Google Fight's Back -Introducing “Maka-Maka” In Response to Facebook

Google Fight's Back -Introducing “Maka-Maka” In Response to Facebook

As we all know that Google has lost the "Facebook bidding war" from Microsoft,but it is actually planning something really big.People in the Googleplex are using a code name “Maka-Maka” or perhaps “Makamaka”.
Its a part of Google's mission to bring all its applications under they the social layer.Maka-Maka is planned to be unveiled several in stages. Starting in early November. Google is planning to introduce a new set of APIs that developers can use to build applications for its social network Orkut, iGoogle.
As it is reported on Techcrunch Earliar:

"Google will announce a new set of APIs on November 5 that will allow developers to leverage Google’s social graph data. They’ll start with Orkut and iGoogle (Google’s personalized home page), and expand from there to include Gmail, Google Talk and other Google services over time.

On November 5 we’ll likely see third party iGoogle gadgets that leverage Orkut’s social graph information - the most basic implementation of what Google is planning. . . . Google is also considering allowing third parties to join the party at the other end of the platform - meaning other social networks (think Bebo, Friendster, Twitter, Digg and thousands of others) to give access to their user data to developers through those same APIs."

Google Killing the Link Farms - Pages Across the Web Lose PR

Hello everyone,
If you are a blogger and are wondering "What the hell happened to my blog's Page Rank"?Then i have a news for you.Google has started taking action against the website & blogs which were regarded as the link farms.
Yes you read it right linking to each others site was once a great think to do for the PR of the blog.But not anymore.Actually off late a sudden drop in the page ranks was seen across the web.Now the word has come from Google that it is penalizing websites, mostly blogs for putting up sponsored text links from their pages and posts.And this was made possible by the revolutionary Google Page Rank technology.For example a paid blogger posts a review or a blog post about their clients, for a small commission. And links came a number of blogs (By Cheating) - small and big, low PR and high PR, low traffic and high traffic. And Google PR was helping all that because it was designed to do so. So these tricky websites, which was supposed to have low PR because of negative factors, ended up with high PRs because of all the link manipulation that was going on. Thus, Google’s search was effectively manipulated with money, and thus the search results were also manipulated.The funny part is this that some of the sites are completely removed from the Google index.Form Example John Chow.

Hide a folder Without Using any Software in Xp

Hello Everyone,
Today one friend of mine asked me how to hide a folder without using any software.So i thought i must share it with you guys as well.Here is a simple method that just deals with renaming the folder you want to hide.


Select the folder to be hide. Rename it by adding .{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} to the end of the folder name.

Eg : Imagine the folder is named pics. Now to hide it, you rename the folder to pics.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Now your folder has been converted into a link to the Control Panel


1) Go to MSDOS [Start>Run>command]. Browse to the folder location. For example, if the locked folder was D:\Files\pics browse to D:\Files via DOS. Then rename the folder pics.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} to pics

The command will be something like this -
ren pics.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} pics

Find Free Anonymous Web Proxies Using Google Search

Find Free Anonymous Web Proxies Using Google Search

A free anonymous web proxy site allows any web browser to access other third-party websites by channeling the browser’s connection through the proxy. The web proxy basically acts as a middleman between your web browser and the third-party website you are visiting. Why would you want to do this? There are two common reasons:
  • You’re connecting to a public network at a coffee shop or internet cafĂ© and you want privacy while you browse the web. You don’t want the admin to know every site you visit.
  • You want to bypass a web content filter or perhaps a server-side ban on your IP address. Content filtering is common practice on college campus networks. This trick will usually bypass those restrictions.

There are subscription services and applications available such as TOR and paid VPN servers that do the same thing. However, this trick is free and easy to access from anywhere via Google. All you have to do is look through the search results returned by the queries below, find a proxy that works, and enter in the URL of the site you want to browse anonymously.
