How to create Facebook Profile Pic in 1 Minute


What if I told you that you don’t need any software anymore and that you can apply the Facebook profile picture hack in just a few mouse clicks? Isn't it sounds interesting.

The past week has given birth to a bunch of websites that will all resize, cut up and crop the hell out of your uploaded photos so you can personalize your facebook profile without dropping a drop of sweat. These tools will create a 180 by 540 pixels profile pic for you, and 5 of those small 97 x 68 pixels images to add to your Photostream.

Facebook Profile Pic Generator
The Facebook Profile Pic Generator by digitalcrunch.in was probably one of the first to automate the Facebook photo hack process. It takes your JPG and PNG image and spits out into 6 images. Once you’ve uploaded and tagged the 5 photostream images and set the new profile picture.

How to Hack Facebook Profile Photos


Along with the New Profile Page makeover launched, Facebook introduced the Photostream; a set of the five most recent photos in which you’ve been tagged, prominently displayed at the top of your profile. You can activate it here. Here’s what i did first thing when the new profiles went live:

Here are the instructions to execute the photo tags profile hack:

  • Fire up your favorite image editor (this can be GIMP, Adobe Photoshop, or anything a slightly more advanced than MS Paint).
  • Load an image of your choice.
  • Resize its dimensions to 485 by 68 pixels (you might want to crop some unnecessary bits to make it look better)
  • Now cut or crop the image into 5 pieces of 97 by 68 pixels each and save them (obviously, you can achieve this effect with 4, 3 or even just 2 images as well).
  • Upload the five pieces to a Facebook album and start tagging yourself in reverse order. That means the part of the image that’s supposed to appear FIRST, should be tagged LAST. And you should start with the right end of the cut-up image. We’ve learned that it’s more accurate to tag yourself while viewing the album normally, instead of in Edit Album mode.
  • If everything went well, you’ll have a new, awesome Facebook profile page header!

Nokia to introduce E7 next week at its Nokia World Event 2010



The mystery of Nokia's Symbian^3 slider may soon be solved -- Reuters is reporting that the company will introduce its new E7 smartphone at its Nokia World event in London next week, and it says that the device will pack both a "large" touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard. That's further backed up by the existence of an XML file on Nokia's own site, which seemingly confirms that the E7 does indeed run Symbian^3, and that it boasts a 640 x 360 display along with that QWERTY keyboard. Not much more than that at the moment, but those previous leaks suggest that we're basically looking at a slider version of the Nokia N8.

Play PAC-MAN Forever! using Google


 
Last week, Google turned its logo into a mini-version of the game PAC-MAN, as a tribute to the arcade classic’s 30th birthday. But response to the game was so high that Google created a page Google.com/Pacman to keep the game going.

From now on, whenever you need a PAC-MAN fix just point your browser to Google.com/Pacman and you can enjoy the search giant's version of this iconic video game any time you like.

Google posted the homepage doodle in celebration of PAC-MAN's 30th anniversary, and the game was only supposed to remain available for 48 hours. But enthusiastic user feedback to "Pac-Google" inspired the search giant to rethink its plans.

Numerous sites popped up offering free download of Google's PAC-MAN for those who wanted to keep their own copy once Google took the game offline. When Namco and Midway games introduced Pac-Man to North America in 1980 it quickly became a fixture in American popular culture.

PAC-MAN inspired numerous video game spin-offs, board games, lunch boxes, a Saturday morning cartoon and several versions for home video game systems.

First Human 'Mark Gasson' affected by Computer Virus



A scientist at the University of Reading has become the first person in the world to be infected by a computer virus.

Dr Mark Gasson, from the School of Systems Engineering, contaminated a computer chip which had been inserted into his hand as part of research into human enhancement and the potential risks of implantable devices.

These results could have huge implications for implantable computing technologies used medically to improve health, such as heart pacemakers and cochlear implants, and as new applications are found to enhance healthy humans.

Dr Gasson says that as the technology behind these implants develops, they become more vulnerable to computer viruses.

"Our research shows that implantable technology has developed to the point where implants are capable of communicating, storing and manipulating data," he said. "They are essentially mini computers. This means that, like mainstream computers, they can be infected by viruses and the technology will need to keep pace with this so that implants, including medical devices, can be safely used in the future."

Dr Gasson will present his results next month at the IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society in Australia, which he is also chairing.

A high-end Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip was implanted into Dr Gasson's left hand last year. Less sophisticated RFID technology is used in shop security tags to prevent theft and to identify missing pets.

The chip has allowed him secure access to his University building and his mobile phone. It has also enabled him to be tracked and profiled. Once infected, the chip corrupted the main system used to communicate with it. Should other devices have been connected to the system, the virus would have been passed on.

Dr Gasson said: "By infecting my own implant with a computer virus we have demonstrated how advanced these technologies are becoming and also had a glimpse at the problems of tomorrow.

"Much like people with medical implants, after a year of having the implant, I very much feel that it is part of my body. While it is exciting to be the first person to become infected by a computer virus in this way, I found it a surprisingly violating experience because the implant is so intimately connected to me but the situation is potentially out of my control.

"I believe it is necessary to acknowledge that our next evolutionary step may well mean that we all become part machine as we look to enhance ourselves. Indeed we may find that there are significant social pressures to have implantable technologies, either because it becomes as much of a social norm as say mobile phones, or because we'll be disadvantaged if we do not. However we must be mindful of the new threats this step brings."

Google Launches Buzz - New Innovation of Social Media Sharing


Google had launched Google Buzz, a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting and share updates, photos, videos and more. Buzz is built right into Gmail, so there's nothing to set up — you're automatically following the people you email and chat with the most.




It is focused on making the sharing experience really rich by integrating photos, videos, and links. No more fuzzy little pictures: Buzz makes it easy to quickly flip through photos and experience them the way they were meant to be seen: big and full-resolution. And videos play inline so you can watch them without opening a new window.

You can choose to share publicly with the world or privately to a small group of friends each time you post. And you can connect other sites you use, today there's Picasa, Flickr, Google Reader, and Twitter, so your friends can keep up with what you're doing around the web — all in one place.

To make sure you don't miss out on the best part of sharing, Buzz sends responses to your posts straight to your inbox. Unlike static email messages, buzz messages in your inbox are live conversations where comments appear in real time.

You can follow the specific people whose posts you want to see, but Buzz also recommends posts from people you're not directly following, often ones where your friends are having a lively conversation in the comments. If you're not interested in a particular recommendation, just click the "Not interested" link and your feedback will help improve the recommendations system. Buzz also weeds out uninteresting posts from the people you follow — collapsing inactive posts and short status messages like "brb." These early versions of ranking and recommendations are just a start; we're working on improvements that will help you automatically sort through all the social data being produced to find the most relevant conversations that matter to you.

New IE flaw exploited for attack on US firms

Attackers targeting Google and a host of other U.S. companies recently used software that exploits a new hole in Internet Explorer, Microsoft said on Thursday.

The flaw exists as an invalid pointer reference within IE and it could allow an attacker to take control of a computer if the target were duped into clicking on a link in an e-mail or an instant message that led to a Web site hosting malware, Microsoft said. "It could also be possible to display specially crafted Web content using banner advertisements or other methods to deliver Web content to affected systems," Microsoft said in the statement.

Microsoft is working on a fix but could not say whether it would address the issue as part of its next Patch Tuesday scheduled for February 9 or before.

Keeping the IE Internet zone security setting on "high" will protect users from the vulnerability by prompting before running ActiveX Controls and Active Scripting, Microsoft said. Customers should also enable Data Execution Prevention (DEP), which helps mitigate online attacks, the company said. DEP is enabled by default in IE 8 but must be manually turned on in earlier versions.

McAfee CTO George Kurtz detailed the vulnerability in a blog post.
"As with most targeted attacks, the intruders gained access to an organization by sending a tailored attack to one or a few targeted individuals. We suspect these individuals were targeted because they likely had access to valuable intellectual property," Kurtz wrote. "These attacks will look like they come from a trusted source, leading the target to fall for the trap and clicking a link or file. That's when the exploitation takes place, using the vulnerability in Microsoft's Internet Explorer."
Once it is downloaded and installed, the malware opens a back door that allows the attacker to gain complete control over the compromised system and "perform reconnaissance," Kurtz said. "The attacker can now identify high value targets and start to siphon off valuable data from the company," he wrote.

Everybody should be aware of Social Engineering

Online criminals can use sophisticated technology to try to gain access to your computer, or they can use something simpler and more insidious: social engineering.

Social engineering is a way for criminals to gain access to your computer. The purpose of social engineering is usually to secretly install spyware or other malicious software or to trick you into handing over your passwords or other sensitive financial or personal information.

Types of social engineering
  • Phishing
  • Spear Phishing
  • E-mail hoaxes

Phishing: Fraudulent e-mail messages and Web sites

The most common form of social engineering is the phishing scam. Phishing scams employ fraudulent e-mail messages or Web sites that try to fool you into divulging personal information.

For example, you might receive an e-mail message that appears to come from your bank or other financial institution that asks you to update your account information. The e-mail message provides a link that appears to go to a legitimate site, but really takes you to a spoofed or fake Web site.

If you enter your login, password, or other sensitive information, a criminal could use it to steal your identity.

Phishing e-mail messages often include misspellings, poor use of grammar, threats, and exaggerations. For more information about phishing, see Recognize phishing scams and fraudulent e-mails.

If you think you might already be a victim, see What to do if you've responded to a phishing scam.


Spear phishing: Focused attacks that seem to come from people you know

Spear phishing is any highly targeted e-mail scam; but they usually are employed in a business environment.

Spear phishers send e-mail messages that appears genuine to all the employees or members within a certain company, government agency, organization, or group.

The message might look like it comes from your employer, or from a colleague who might send an e-mail message to everyone in the company, such as the head of human resources or IT. It might include requests for user names or passwords or might contain malicious software, like a trojan or a virus.

Spear phishing is a more sophisticated type of social engineering than phishing, but the techniques you can use to avoid being fooled are the same.

E-mail hoaxes: Look out for easy money promises

E-mail hoaxes come in many different forms, ranging from a scam that requests your help getting money out of a foreign country (often Nigeria) to a promise that you've won a lottery.

The common element is that you're usually promised a large sum of money for little or no effort on your part.

The scammer tries to get you to send money or reveal financial information that they can use to steal your money or your identity, or both.

LG releasing Windows Mobile 7 phone in September and Android 2.1 in April



First LG flat-out says on public record that Windows Mobile 7 is bound for 2010, and now we've gotten apparent word that the company has narrowed said release window to September of this year -- at least as far as its own devices are concerned.
That comes via high-profile French tech blogger Eric of Presse Citron, who while attending a LG Design Lab tweeted (both in French and immediately after in English) that LG Mobile will release a Windows Mobile 7 device in September and an Android 2.1 device in April, first in the US and then Europe just after. The tweets are now gone, but WMPoweruser managed to catch both via Google cache, while we have corroborated just the French one by similar means. So, misheard claims from the company or accidental slip-up of NDA'd secrets? MWC is starting to look more and more interesting.
