Posted by 28 March, 2009 (1) Comment

A new update of Firefox comes around. You can grab hold of Fasterfox for the said version from below link:

Fasterfox Lite 3.0.21 for Firefox 3.0.8
Mirror (uploaded by me):
Size: 101 KB

It supports Firefox 3.1 Beta as well. Enjoy!

A few people have said that this is not Fasterfox – yes, it is not Fasterfox but Fasterfox Lite because the original Fasterfox was not being updated for the latest version of Firefox. Fasterfox Lite is updated constantly on the other hand.

How to Add External IR Keyboard to iPhone Without Jailbreaking

Posted by 24 March, 2009 (0) Comment

Yes, this has been done by the hackers! iPhone lacks an actual keyboard since its all touch screen and unlike Smart phones from Nokia, it cannot support a Bluetooth keyboard either. This may change with the upcoming OS 3.0 of iPhone since apparently Apple is opening access to iPhone’s Bluetooth.

Anyway, returning to the original topic now. See below:

iPhone with a keyboard

Zack created a modified version of the microcontroller firmware used for the audio port modem, expanded to detect an infrared signal or read from a USB host controller, then read the data transmitted by an attached keyboard and convert it to an FSK signal for transmission to an iPhone.

George then modified the iPhone application to interpret the keyboard data and display the appropriate characters on-screen.

Google Earth Direct Download Link – v 5.0.11337.1968 (beta)

Posted by 17 March, 2009 (10) Comment

Google Earth can only be downloaded now using Google Updater. You download, run Google Updater and then it will grab Google Earth. I don’t know why Companies choose this way of installation. Broadband is indeed spreading, bandwidth and speed isn’t an issue. It will only take a few moments but I am someone who still wants a back up of installation file residing somewhere…

Following is the direct download link to late version of Google Earth 5 setup or installer, complete version number is 5.0.11337.1968 (beta), total size of the installation file is 9.90 MB. You don’t need Google Updater now. Just copy the following link, paste it in the browser or download manager and download.

Do leave a comment if this is what you were looking for and tell why do you like a standalone installer.

Latest update: Scroll below

NOD32 went kahoots sometime ago with me as soon as it updated to 3918. It detected some critical system files as Win32/Kryptik.JX, started deleting them and putting them in quarantine. I was under the impression that my system has been infected with the trojan but after looking at the topics to which I am linking below, it turned out to be a big blunder on NOD32′s part.

NOD32 was deleting very critical and required Windows files and Windows Files Security prompt popped up as well telling me that some files have been overwritten or missing and that they need to be restored. Eset – maker of NOD32′s take on all this is here for everyone to see:
