In the field of computer security, phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information. Phishing also known as brand spoofing or carding, is a variation on “fishing,” the idea being that bait is thrown out with the hopes that while most will ignore the bait, some will be tempted into biting. It is also possible to phish for other information in additions to username and passwords such as credit card numbers, bank account numbers, social security numbers. The damage caused by phishing ranges from denial of access to e-mail to substantial financial loss. [Read more…]
Today, all people want their information and data to be secure. Even the devices we use are protected by passwords. In our daily life, we come across different sectors where we need privacy. It can be frustrating trying to keep with all of the passwords and keys. Keeping this in mind, Dallas Semiconductor is developing a new Java-based, computerized ring that will automatically unlock doors and log on to computers. [Read more…]
Cloud computing is the boon for today’s world. For ones, who are oblivious to the term Cloud Computing, Cloud computing doesn’t mean computing over clouds. So, what is cloud computing? Check out what it actually mean and its models. Here, the term “cloud” mean “The internet” or “The Web”. The term “Cloud Computing” is dependent on cloud drawings used in past to represent telephone networks and later to depict the Internet in. “An emerging computer paradigm where data and services reside in massively scalable data centers in the cloud and can be accessed from any connected devices over the internet”.
People express their mental states, including emotions, thoughts, and desires, all the time through facial expressions, vocal nuances, and gestures. This is true even when they are interacting with machines. Our mental states shape the decisions that we make, govern how we communicate with others, and affect our performance. [Read more…]
This 21st century is considered to be a new world era. In the modern world, communication technology is rapidly increasing. And of course, the computer is the main communication machine used. Since the time computer has been invented scientists and engineers have been trying to make it more and more compact. Some of the results we have found in the form of Mobiles I-pods and I-phones have replaced laptops or desktops to an extent. But the scientist is now making an effort on making it more compact even than mobile. [Read more…]
Surprised by this title – Diamond Chip? But it’s true. You might have heard that without silicon, Electronics can not be imagined. But the diamond chip is the revolution in IT industry, that replaces the need of silicon. A team of scientists led by Matthias Schreck of the University of Augsburg in Germany has developed a crystalline diamond film that could produce more resilient semiconductor chips than those made from silicon. [Read more…]
Is your internet speed getting on your nerves?? Are you tired of changing your internet connections for the sake of good internet speed?? Do not panic if you are not able to do so. We know we need to have good internet speed in order to buffer videos directly on the internet, to load flash or animated files or to load highly descriptive web pages. We Always Need To Speed Up Our Internet Connection. [Read more…]
Smart Dust devices are small wireless microelectromechanical sensors (MEMS) that can detect everything from light to vibrations. It is a tiny dust size device with extraordinary capabilities. It encompasses a nano-structured silicon sensor that can spontaneously assemble, orient sense, and report on their local environment. [Read more…]
