Safari Download Record - Just a Hype!


Alas!!

The news, Safari has been downloaded most number of times within 3 days of its release.

This turns to be a false news. Not literally but Safari has not been independently downloaded like one happened in case of firefox, but most of them are found to be updates which are also a forced(made users to download with a CRITICAL UPDATE flag).

What happened Apple.!!

The reason behind such a Claim is still unrecognizable. Despite the fact that Safari is a good browser, there is no big reason to create such a Hype.

Microsoft finally came out of its border of Windows Firewall and Windows Defender.

The new free Anti-Malware application whose code name is Morro will be available to public as a beta version.

As usual, Microsoft claims that , this applications is not going a dedicated anti-virus program but just different from other programs that people use.

Morro Supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista and Windows Se7en.

Windows Live one care is going to give way to Morro

The Main thing that concerns Microsoft is that whether people believe their Application

(Universal fact, No PC users trust Windows Firewall and go for third party software)

But still there is Question on the Air.

Does Morro is a free application or has a free version

Wait and See -The only answer we would get at this point of time.

So, Lets wait and see whether
Microsoft Morro - A Competitor for Other leading Anti-Virus Programs

Will Safari Break Firefox Record?


Safari 4b was made available to download from February but the final complete version has been released this week.

To their surprise, thy witness Safari has been downloaded most number of times.

Apple, on Friday announced that Safari has been downloaded more than One Crore times in 3 days of its release. In which around 50% of it contributes Windows Version of it.

This could release some pressure on Apple as they are already facing some trouble on iPhone and Snow Leopard.

Bill Gates Eats Apple


Snow Leopard has been released for this season..

System Requirements:
You system must be a New One.

Forget about Snow Leopard if you have a 4 years old PC running. Mac cant entertain rusty Desktops.

Snow Leopard does not supports Old PCs. This sentence makes no big trouble to Apple.

Microsoft Windows Se7en does supports Older PCs, even the one built in 2001 - This Sentence makes a big mess.

The Word Upgrading to new Mac OsX becomes Conditional. Installing windows se7en is just a piece of Cake.

Apple authorities earlier said that , Snow leopard is going to concentrate on performance, but they failed to reveal the fact that "Running Snow Leopard needs a PC with good performance".

Microsoft proves themselves better this season.

Smartphones - Battle Royal


Really a big competition this season for Smart phones.

Stunning arrivals puts people under great confusion.

Two Kinds of Consumers:

1. People who always stick with their traditional gadgets.

2. People who tend to change on every new arrival.

Manufacturers need not worry about the first group of customers , as they can always retain them.

The biggest threat is the second kind of customers.

Their loss might greatly affect the balance in a Company's reach.



Recently Nokia 5800 greatly affected iPhone but that did not last longer.

Now the Grace for Smartmobiles have increased. As people opt for the one which could manage all their duties.

Now Mobiles Applications started flooding the internet, making a smartphone to do almost all works that a PC can do.

A typical Smartphone should be able to support.

The most famous iPhone found to be not supporting many applications, which surely goes negative.



Durability is also a factor. A mobile must be durable enough to enjoy it instead of worrying.


This time, Desktop Manufacturers like Intel also likely to enter the Mobile Arena. They might really make a good deal and a reliable product. Competition is keeps on increasing.



So , making a Typical Smartphone is really a big deal, even if a good mobile is made, merchandising is even more.

This Summer going to offer a great range of smartphone. And its the time for we people to Choose.

I have Chosen Already!

The recent bench mark test says Google Chrome is Faster than Firefox and Safari.

Now almost all the browsers started to improve their JavaScript processing as Streaming video is the most demanded one by the Customers.

Javascript tests also says Chrome is faster when compared to Firefox and Safari.

Not many features are disclosed but Apples says two of the features are apparent to the users.


Let wait for it!!

Palm PRE started eating iPhone




One of the ok..the Only thing that is/was notable in iPhone is its iTunes Sync with PC. It was also a great security for iPhone to maintain their standard.

Now Palm PRE also provided PC Sync with iPhone. Palm PRE suports images, music and video to be Syncronized.



The notable fact is that, it is more comfortable to sync media with the Foreigner(Palm PRE ) than doing it with the one belongs to the same family of Apple (iPhone).


Now what can iPhone do.

Remove Palm PRE Support in iTunes. That can be done in ucoming versions , but what about older version iTunes.!!!!!

Patch Tsunami from Microsoft on Various Products


Microsoft floods users with its ten new Updates (Security Patches in Deed).

These patches include Internet Explorer, Ms Word and MS Excel which promises to fix serious issues.

Right now MS Office 2010 is blessed with plenty of Bugs.

Bug recently noted by me.

"MS Word Sometimes Crashes on giving print consecutively twice".

There security updates should patch all the open block holes and errors. All the Updated are going to have flag not even "Recommended" "Critical" in windows update list.

They mainly concentrated in IE 8 and they have to because, IE 8 already facing back off due to firefox and also no newer version of Windows will be bundle with any of the IE versions.

As many people are using IE just because of the fact that IE is bundled with Windows , Microsoft must be able to pull customers to download IE

Smartphones to rule the World in Future







Smartphones have very big demand among the Consumers. People tend to change their choice and taste every now and then.

But Smartphones have attracted many people with brilliant features and Accessibility. More or less smartphone is almost a small handy Computer which almost runs all applications meant for them like a PCs.


Traditional Java based phone are still under good market but many people opt for Smartphones.

Symbian a propertied software which Supported all Nokia Series 60 Mobiles ruled the Smartphone season as PDAs runs Windows had not had a big reach perhaps due to the cost variant and multimedia features.

Now comes a question



Android , a rival of Symbian. As HTC Mobile adopted android OS. But Still , meaning of the word Smartphone will direct you to Symbian Mobile in Mobile Dictionary as it has already covered 58% of total mobile marketting.



As Google's T-Mobile G1 has poor response and considered iPhone(2). Android need to work a bit hard to compete with Symbian.

So, its time to bid Adieu for Nokia S40 Mobiles.

Bye Bye Jar!!

Opera 10b is Out.
