Some food for thought

The first link today is to a website that specializes in selling self defense products. This includes a range of stun guns, pepper sprays, lock picks, police batons,and even spy products. One of my favorite things that I found among this goodie-bag of weapons is a special liquid called Liquid Nightmare. This concoction is sometimes used by the CIA and FBI for unusual matters because this liquid creates a chemical reaction when met with any other liquid to create a slippery blob like gel. Imagine all the potential uses!

I had no idea about the capabilities of hackers around the world. Many have been able to hack in to banks, companies, including Sony, Exxon, Shell, and BP, as well as industrial complexes. This video infomercial will inform you about an amazing virus, what it can do, and how it functions. The virus is called stuxnet and its sole purpose is to reach Iran's industrial equipment then shut it down. It can remain dormant for a long time till it reaches its desired destination. The worst part about the virus is that it can disguise itself to Microsoft and anti-viruses because it exploits "zero days". It is also an open source virus so it can be modified to your liking. If you want to check out the actual virus, and even download it if you want to, go here.

This is an interesting article about a man who was donating water to his neighbors, and because of this he was sentenced 300 hours of trash pick up.

A random but good link.

A few mind boggling links

Did you know that the colder the food you eat is, the harder your body has to work to exert energy to reach an equilibrium of temperature with your body? Since it takes 1 calorie to heat 1 gram of water 1 degree centigrade, you are basically lowering the calorie content of your food or drink of choice because your body has to use it's energy to bring that food back to body temperature. This is good news for all my ice cream and ice cold beer drinkers because now you know that if you want to be as healthy as possible make sure what ever you eat is as cold as possible. Read more about the Beer and Ice Cream diet here.

Wow this illusion really struck me because it is extremely impossible, but the magician and his helpers make it look relatively simple and real. Maybe you guys can figure out how they did it, because I know I can not.

Have you ever been robbed or maybe even pickpocket-ted on a subway or something? Yes I know it is not a pleasant experience, especially when your wallet gets stolen with $200 and then you have to worry about identity theft, as well as the trouble of cancelling all your credit cards. I'm not a big fan of thieves, but this guy is amazing at what he does, they call him the best pickpocket.

Now for a compilation of real life super humans who have surpassed the limits of what is humanly possible. A samurai with extreme speed and accuracy. The fastest gun slinger, who is capable of shooting two well placed shots in a blink of an eye. Also included are people with unheard of reaction times. For your viewing pleasures

How to use Google as a cheap alternative for cellphone use

Are you a hard working business man that is in serious need for multiple phones? Maybe one of your phone lines is always busy. Or possibly you want to have one phone for strictly business calls, and another to respond to all of your family needs. Do not buy another phone and please do not buy another expensive cell phone contract. 

Is it possible to have two different phone numbers for use on one phone, instead of two? Can you have one number for your car dealership business, and the other for your own personal use? Why yes you can, all thanks to Google.

Google voice for mobile enables you to make calls from your Google Voice number, read voicemail like email, send text messages for free, make cheap international calls, and more. Your custom Google voice number can be given out to others and calls/texts will get routed directly to your phone, while your other number may still remain anonymous to others. Google voice is compatible with most smart phones, including iPhones. If you want to check if your phone is compatible click any of the Google Voice links.

All you have to do is follow the link above, see if your phone is compatible, follow the instructions on the page, and in no time the Google Voice application will be downloaded on to your phone. Then you will be handling business like a real tech pro. 

If you have any questions leave a comment, and as always please feel free to follow my blog for more tips and tricks and interesting information.

Want access to all of what the Web has to offer?

Did you know all the information on the vast world wide web amounts to an estimated grand 91,167 terabytes of data? Not all of this data is accessible normally by you and I. In fact, only a mere 167 of those terabytes are open for us to see, even to the great powerhouse search engines such as Google, and Yahoo. This means that these search engines only index about 167 terabytes of data on the web. I'm sorry to ruin your day, but Google is not so divine after all. Normal search engines index web pages by following hyperlinks after hyperlinks, and literally saving the information on each web page on their database for future access. The reason most of the data on the web does not get indexed is because some pages are not accessible on private networks, and often times these pages require a password. This area of the Internet that can not be accessed usually is referred to as the Deep Web, Invisible Web, or even the Undernet.

I always mention this, but of course with the advancing technology available today, search engine technology has progressed copious amounts. Now we can search any key phrase on our favorite search engines and there is a strong possibility that whatever we were looking for is going to show up. I know what you are thinking. You want to be able to access all the nooks and crannies of data that are somewhere hidden in the depths of the web. If you want more than 5 percent of what the Internet has to offer, I can help.

With a few powerful resources, and search engines you will be able to surf the web like a real pro. No more limiting yourself behind the barriers of knowledge. These resources are invisible web search engines with specifically indexed information.

My personal favorite resource is The WWW Virtual Library, considered the oldest catalog available, created by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the web. This makes the page a very reliable source, if not the most reliable. I also like it because not only can you search by word, but you can also browse through the various categories to find any information you want.

Infomine is a collection of libraries found throughout the United States, mostly composed of Universities such as California, Wake Forest, and Detroit.

CompletePlanet is another great one, and I especially like it because it calls itself the deep web directory. Try it out for yourself.

Searching the invisible web can be strenuous, but it can also be satisfying, and helpful especially when you do not have time to go to library, or if you are looking for a certain source for your dissertation for your medical degree for instance. If you are looking for getting an edge on your classmates, or maybe you just want to gain knowledge to become wiser, deep web searching is for you.

Please tell me your opinions. Did you guys already know about the Deep Web? What is your favorite search engine?

Technology for the wise

I know you like all the Batman movies, and if you are a fan of fast cars this link is definitely in your interest. Carey Putsch, an aspiring race car driver, and an obvious Batman enthusiast built a street-legal Batmobile using Boeing turbine engine.

Here is an interesting list that shows us the terrible designs in everyday objects. It is weird to see that some of these design flaws have not been corrected. Finding ways to make life easier can probably end up making you rich.

What is the world coming to? This disillusioned Japanese inventor has created a kiss transmission device so that now you can french kiss your partner from across the world instead of typing "xoxo". What do you think? 

Amazingly human society has evolved a lot when you see the technology and capabilities that are available today. It's nice to look back and reminisce on the days when we still used hard drives the size of closets or when floppy disks were frequently used. 

Luckily, I have advanced knowledge on the subject of computers in general, as well as information about programs. This site will tell those who do not know well upon the subject, how well certain anti-virus software's work. Norton and McCafe are definitively not the best.

Are you ready for the future of video gamegraphics technology where unlimited amounts of data can be rendered easily? Soon it will be available thanks to the company Euclideon.
