Google Doodle Celebrates Independence Day of Pakistan


I Guess this is first time ever happened in Google’s history Finally Google has given Pakistanis a doodle for Pakistan's Independence Day. The design of the doodle is not very artistic. Just something thrown in a hurry. The doodle does not reflect on people and culture of Pakistan or even the importance of the day.

They have used minar-e-Pakistan as L in the Google. Minar-e-Pakistan was built to remember the day when Pakistan resolution was passed by All India Muslim League on 23rd March 1940. This building represents another day that we celebrate which is called the Pakistan Day.

The head of the second g is shaped like the Crescent and star in Pakistani flag. There are other stars thrown in which are all green and the one with the Crescent is white.

Perhaps other stars, and then the one different from other stars point to some sort of symbolism on how Pakistanis are very much like rest of the world yet uniquely different. Happy Independence day...

    What is Google+ and How To get a Google+ Invite?

    What is Google+(Google plus).
    Google some days ago Unveiled biggest step in Social networking space by launching a competitor to Facebook and twitter. Company introduced Google+ project (don’t mistake it with Google +1). Google has tried to get into the social networking field before, and failed like orkut and google buzz. This might be different.
    What is different.
    Google+ is different. The message of Google+ is that it does everything Facebook does, and more, but also lets you control your privacy and sharing better than Facebook. The goal of Google+ is nothing short of consigning Facebook to the dustbin of history, alongside MySpace.Google+ is designed to allow users share things with smaller groups of people. Another feature in the service make it easier to find online content you care about, and then share it with friends who might have similar interests. It also includes a group messaging service as well as a feature that lets users instantly upload photos taken with mobile phones.
    This is only a short introduction of Google+ because every blog and website is talking about Google+ if any body need any information about Google+ just comment below your question.

    The Last thing about Google+ (Google plus).
    some people is thinking that the Google+ is Gmail+, but i want to clear The Google+ is Different this is not a email service this is a social networking project by Google like Facebook and Twitter.

    How To Get a Google+ Account.
    During its first 24 hours of existence, Google+ has received its fair share of coverage - which, after all, is what Google sought all along. in fact, that Google was forced to suspend the invite process to its social network temporarily because of what one of its senior execs described as insane demand. When it revealed Google+ earlier this week, Google said the service is undergoing a "field trial," so it's accessible by invitation only and not yet available to the public. No word yet on when it'll be more widely available.
    But But in case you were not among the lucky few who received invites to test out the service,You can get a Google+ invitation from Saqib's IT Solutions.Ignore the spammers and scammers they are selling invites on ebay and amazon and follow instructions below.

    How To Get a Google+  Invitation.

    First, share this post with your friends by clicking the Tweet or Facebook Share boxes to the bottom to tell them about it (if you can't see the sharing boxes, just tweet this page or share this page on Facebook).
    Second, email me at saqib.itsol@gmail.com with subject of "invite me on Google plus" and include your Twitter or Facebook username in the text or comment below.
    don't forget  to follow Saqib's IT Solutions on Google+

    Important: I'm able to send a limited number of invitations each day, so hurry: it's first come, first served.

    How To Hide Hard Disk Partition in Windows To protect data Without Any Software

    Every one of us want to hide important files and documents or some thing special from everyone specially from computer users who shares same computer. But unfortunately there is no such feature in windows expect hide files and folders but this is such a common way that every one knows and can unhide the files at any time. Another annoying thing with hide files and folders is this that you have to hide each file and folder manually every-time so if you want to hide large amount of data then this will be really hard for you.
    The best way is Secure your data is move all those files in a single partition and just hide the partition.
    There are so many utilities available to hide files and folder but you have to install them in order to use them, similarly you have to open the application every-time you need to lock or unlock the drive.  But here is the little trick that I’m sure most of the users are not aware of.

    Steps to Hide a Partition

    I have three partitions on my Hard Disk I will hide Drive D:
    Just right click on My Computer icon and Select Manage from menu.
    A new window will open, Just click on Disk Management link at the bottom of the list. You will see your hard disk partitions on the right side of the window.
    Just Right click on the partition you want to hide and select Change Drive Letter and Paths from menu.
    Now just click Remove button and then click OK button.
    A message will appear: Ignore this warning and click Yes button (Please note that you can’t hide any hard disk partition that contain windows System Volume Information. for example C: drive.

    That's it  A quick check in My Computer clearly show that, partition (D:) no longer exist.
    But do not worry this just hides the partition from my computer, logically it’s still there with all the data intact.

    Note: Some times you need to Restart your Computer in order to hide partition.
    So what if you want to unhide the same partition you just hide. well same procedure as mention above, and in Disk Management simply right click on that partition, and click on Change Drive Letter and Paths
    and Click on Add button.
    Assign a letter for this partition (D for my case) and press OK button.

    How To Recover Stored Passwords from Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox and Chrome

    Browsers are really becoming more and more user friendly with loads of features to take our browsing experience to new heights. A browser without a password manager feels extremely dull.
    The password storage feature allows us to login into any website without entering login details manually. This comes in very handy as entering login details, specially in cyber-cafe is not at all secure.
    Now, lets see you visit a site after a long time and suddenly want to know the password you used to login. The password is there in the password manager, but it does not allow us to see the password. Or, say you forget the master password somehow.
    In these terrible situations, we  can use password recovery tools, These password recovery tools come in very handy and are totally safe and legal.

    Lets see WebBrowserPassView

    WebBrowserPassView is a small, portable and freeware utility designed to recover passwords from:
    • Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 – 9.0)
    • Mozilla Firefox (All Versions)
    • Google Chrome
    • Opera

    Once WebBrowserPassView has gathered all the passwords from the various browsers, it displays them in a single table with the URL the password was saved for, what browser it was saved in and of course the username and password. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any Website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.
    After retrieving your lost passwords, you can save them into text/html/csv/xml file, by using the 'Save Selected Items' option (Ctrl+S).
    This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000, and up to Windows 7, including 64-bit systems.
    Download:
    WebBrowserPassView – 204kb
    or visit webBrowserPass View's Official Site
    Note: WebBrowserPassView is a tool that retrieves secret passwords stored in your system, and thus your Antivirus may falsely detect this tool is infected with Trojan/Virus But it is safe.

    How to Auto-login your Facbook Account using Google account(Gmail), Yahoo and OpenID's

    I really wanted to write this post from a long time. But with lack of Blogging time i can’t post. Most major Web companies – Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc. – have announced support for OpenID, meaning that you can use your credentials from any one of those services to register and login to third-party websites that support OpenID. But Facebook is taking a big leap beyond all of these companies today by enabling you to login to its own site using either Gmail or OpenID.
    That means You can now link both your Google Account (including Gmail), MySpace, Yahoo ID and OpenID with your Facebook profile.
    ADVANTAGES
    The advantage of linking you other online accounts with Facebook is that if you are signed-in into any of the above services, you'll automatically be logged into Facebook as well. So for example, if you working in Google Docs or writing scraps in Orkut and then decide to open Facebook in another tab, you won't see the Facebook sign-in screen anymore.
    How To Link
          To setup this association between Facebook and Yahoo/Google Accounts do the steps written below.
    Step 1. Login to your facebook account,
    Step 2. Go To Account Setting,
    Step 3. click on Add a new linked account,
    Step 4. From the pull down menu Select your preferred service,
    Step 5. Facebook will send you to selected service's authorization page,
    Step 6. Once you’ve authorized the connection your two accounts are linked!
     Just It.
    One last thing Facebook lets you link only one account per web service so choose the ID that you use most frequently on the web.

    How To Create A Manual System Restore Point In Windows 7

    What is System Restore:
    Windows System Restore is an awesome system recovery tool, and it's included with Windows for free. It's the ideal solution for rolling back bad drivers, fixing when buggy software breaks your PC, or simply rolling you back to a previous point in time. 

    System Restore in Windows 7 Is Better than XP:

    If you've ever tried the XP variety of System Restore, the uselessness of it probably left a bad taste in your mouth. Setting a system restore point was often agonizingly slow, and when it came time to actually attempt a system restore, it rarely did what you wanted it to do. But if you've upgraded to Vista or Windows 7, you should really give System Restore another chance. Back in the XP days, system restore simply used a file filter and copied files around, but since Vista, it uses the Shadow Copy features built into Windows—essentially, Windows can create a snapshot of your drive as of a certain point in time, which can then be used later to restore your PC should anything go wrong. while the XP version could only really roll back from certain Windows changes and generally didn't work that well, System Restore in Vista or Windows 7 can actually roll back to a previous version of an installed application.

    Create A Manual System Restore:
    One of the best practises to keep your system stable is creating a restore point before playing with system files, or installing a new software. Although most of the programs create a restore point automatically before the installation, the same can’t be said for all the programs out there for Windows. 
    To create a manual restore point in Windows 7 you need to follow the steps given below:

    1.  Right-click on Computer icon and select Properties to open System Properties window. Alternatively, you can also use Windows key + Pause/Break shortcut to launch the System Properties.
    2. In the System Properties window, click on the System Protection link.
     3. Once the System Protection tab is opened, just click on the Create button to create a new manual restore point for the drives that have system protection turned on.
    4. You will be asked to enter a description for the new restore point. Type in the description and hit the Create button.
    5. Wait for a few seconds to see the “Restore Point was created successfully” message.

    6. You are done!
    What about you? Have you used System Restore to fix your PC problems? Share your experiences in the comments.

    Setup Free Home Security Camera Using Skype.

    This is not a new idea by any means. I first read about this concept on a blog a year or two ago But i cant find this again ! I really like this concept, I want to talk about it again. I have done this before when I was away from home and it worked perfectly. It basically involves using Skype as a security camera to check your home from another location.
    Home security systems are extremely expensive these days but a fairly rudimentary cheap but effective system can be set up using Skype and a webcam.
    It involves keeping your computer on so this may not work if you are away from home for an extended period of time (imagine the electricity bill!) but if you are just going to work for example, this would be a good solution to “do an E.T and call home”. You can also use this to check up on the kids while you are out.

    And if you have iphone or ipad then you can use your iOS Device to get a video view of your home when you are outside the home. You can use your iPhone, or iPad 3G as a security camera.
    How To Setup:

    We assume, you already have a Skype account called MySkype. (if not, you can download Skype for free HERE!)
    You need to get another Skype account and give it a name, for the purpose of this example, let’s call it MyHomeSkype. Now log-in to Skype from your home computer with the new MyHomeSkype account.

    Select Tools-Options and set up as below:
    1. Privacy > Allow calls from: Only people from my Contacts
    2. Calls > Incoming Calls: Auto-answer incoming calls
    3. Video Settings> Select your Web cam
    4. Video > Enable Skype Video
    5. Video > When I am in a call: Start my video automatically
    6. Video > Automatically receive video from: No one or People in my Contact List
     
     
    Before you leave home, just make sure your home PC has Skype running in the background with MyHomeSkype account.
    Where ever you are, just use Skype with your normal account MySkype and call MyHomeSkype, you will see the video. you can watch the video of your home on your iPhone. using skype iphone app.
    just launch Skype app on your iPhone log in on your primary Skype account and make a video call.
    That’s it. In this way you can set up Skype to become your home iPhone security camera. 
    Does anyone else have any unique uses for Skype? Or can you think of other uses for this method?

    Kill non-responding Programs in Windows [Trick]

    To kill non-responding or hung  or frozen applications, normally one opens the Task Manager, and right clicks on the process and selects End Task.

    But you can also create a desktop shortcut to kill such non-responding applications in a click.

    To do so, right click on an empty area on your desktop.

    Select New>Shortcut.

    In the first box of the Create Shortcut Wizard, type :

    taskkill.exe /f /fi “status eq not responding”

    Click Next.

    Name the shortcut  TaskKill. (or what ever you like)

    Click Finish.

    Then select an appropriate icon for it !

    The shortcut uses the Taskkill command to identify and terminate application/s that are Not Responding.

    Or you could create a .bat file (right click desktop > New > Notepad) with the following matter:

    @echo off

    WiFi Hacking Is Now Legal Dutch Courts new Rule

    Breaking in to an encrypted router and using the WiFi connection is not an criminal offence, a Dutch court ruled. WiFi hackers can not be prosecuted for breaching router security.
    A court in The Hague ruled earlier this month that it is legal to break WiFi security to use the internet connection. The court also decided that piggybacking on open WiFi networks in bars and hotels can not be prosecuted. In many countries both actions are illegal and often can be fined.
    The ruling is linked to a case of a student who threatened to shoot down everyone at the Maerlant College in The Hague, a high school. He posted a threat on the internet message board 4chan.org using a WiFi connection that he broke into. The student was convicted for posting the message and sentenced to 20 hours of community service, but he was acquitted of the WiFi hacking charges.
    The Judge reasoned that the student didn't gain access to the computer connected to the router, but only used the routers internet connection. Under Dutch law breaking in to a computer is forbidden.
    A computer in The Netherlands is defined as a machine that is used for three things: the storage, processing and transmission of data. A router can therefore not be described as a computer because it is only used to transfer or process data and not for storing bits and bytes. Hacking a device that is no computer by law is not illegal, and can not be prosecuted, the court concluded.
    If a secure WiFi connection is hacked or an open network is used for WiFi leeching, the action could be tried under civil law, said criminal lawyer Mathieu van Linde of Blokzijl Advocaten . The ruling led to some controversy in The Netherlands. Van Linde found the verdict "remarkable". He reckoned that most people from The Netherlands assume hacking a WiFi network is illegal. He also added that the law used by the court in this case was formed in the early nineties, and could be outdated, since it was not intended to cover WiFi networks.
    The Dutch attorney general decided to appeal the verdict. Within two years the case will be reviewed by the High Court of The Netherlands that will decide if a router can be defined as a computer under Dutch law.
    Hacking or even 'piggybacking' on an open WiFi connection is illegal in a wide variety of nations. In some states in the US unauthorized access of a network is an criminal offense, in other states piggybacking can be fined. WiFi leechers in the UK can be fined or arrested, depending on the intentions of the leecher.

    Firefox 4 RC Released [Direct Download Links For Windows Linux and Mac]

    After releasing twelve Beta versions, Mozilla has released their first RC (Releases Candidate) today. The RC is now available to download for Windows, Linux and Mac based users.
    A complete list of new features in this RC is outlined at this page. Out of these changes , the remarkable ones are design UI, organizing tabs, managing add-ons and better a syncing UI. Behind the scene changes include better HTML5 support and better WebM support.
    It is expected that these changes will put Firefox back in the game and with the agile roadmap ahead; Firefox has a chance of getting back a number of power users it lost to Google Chrome and Opera. Benchmarks say, the new JavaScript rendering engine is 3.5x faster and watching HD WebM videos will be fun. Along with that, there are other ‘not so evident at first’ changes like, 3D capabilities and hardware acceleration. The crash protection on tabs allows Firefox to isolate the rouge tab caused by a crashing plugin. This prevents the complete browser from going down, in case of a tab-crash and saves our important work.
     Although you can download the latest version of the RC from Firefox RC official page
    but we are here to make things simpler for you. So Download the Firefox RC for you OS from the below provided direct download links.

    Mercedes SLS AMG - Totally Awesome!

    Mercedes SLS AMG - Totally Awesome!

    The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a luxury grand tourer automobile developed by Mercedes-AMG to replace the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.[1] The car is the first Mercedes automobile designed in-house by AMG and is described by Mercedes-Benz as a spiritual successor to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing,[2] despite a design that visually draws more of its inspiration from the 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé.
    The vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 IAA. Sales began in mid-2010 in Europe with MSRP of €177,310 (including taxes)[3] and will begin in the United States in mid-2011 for less than $200,000.[4] The SLS AMG is featured as the cover car for the PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 5, and was the safety car for the 2010 Formula One season.

    Download Adobe Flash Player 10.2 [Standalone Installer] Updated

    Updated on 07/05/11:
    The best option to download Adobe Flash directly is to use the direct links to the setup files. Those links point to the Windows Flash installers.

    •Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer download here
    •Adobe Flash Player for Other Browsers download here


    After three months of beta testing, Adobe Flash Player 10.2 has finally out of beta. The Abobe Flash Player is a cross-platform browser-based application runtime which has been created to provide uncompromised viewing of expressive applications, content and videos across screens as well as browsers. The latest version of Adobe Flash Player 10.2 has been designed to improve user experience by delivers beautiful HD video, faster graphics rendering and high performance on mobile screens.
     Those users who have interested to download Adobe Flash Player 10.2, can just follow the below steps:

    1. Visit Adobe Flash Player official download page.
    2. Select an Operating Systems such as Windows7/Vista/XP/2008/2003, Macintosh OS X 10.4-10.6, Linux, Solaris and Other.
    3. After select the Operating System, then select a version and click on “Download now” button.

    Update: Today we noticed that the official download page is supplying DLM to Internet Explorer users to download flash player. but if you are using firefox or any other explorer then you will directly download the flash player for your browser. But it is not work for with internet explorer.the DLM procedure adds files to the operating system and could pose a security risk which it has been in the past.

    It is therefor suggested to find a way to download Adobe Flash without the Adobe Download Manager. But that’s unfortunately not as easy as it sounds as Adobe seems to have cut off many other options to download Adobe Flash without the download manager.
    There are basically two options to download Adobe Flash without the Adobe Download Manager. The fact that Adobe offers different versions of Flash depending on the web browser that is used to access the website makes the matter even more confusing.

    The best option to download Adobe Flash directly is to use the direct links to the setup files. Those links point to the Windows Flash installers.

    •Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer download here
    •Adobe Flash Player for Other Browsers download here

    Those two links always point to the latest official release version of Adobe Flash. The second option is to download a developer release of Adobe Flash from the Flash Labs website. Those are often pre-releases which can contain bugs. Versions for all operating systems are offered.

    Both options allow the user to download Adobe Flash without the Adobe Download Manager.

    How To Check Actual Download, Upload Speed Of Your Internet connection

    Now a days, we have different kind of Internet connections like Wireless 3G, Broadband, Cable etc. Internet speed test will show you the current speed for download and upload, and based on that stat, you can check whether your ISP (Internet Service Provider) is giving claimed speed or not. If you are going for 3.1 Mbps connection claimed by your ISP, then you may or may not get that much speed in your area or on your computer. You should check that how much speed you are getting and then only you can talk to your ISP about the speed issue.
    Most of the time I use Speedtest to know the current download and upload speed on my computer. Speedtest automatically detects the nearest server to begin the test. In my case, as you can see the nearest server shown in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. That may change for your test. Now you need to hit the Begin Test button to start the Internet Speed Test. Now the result page will show you the download and upload speed and that will also show you some estimated download / upload time for a pre-defined sized file.

    Facebook Confirms Removal of Suggest to Friends Feature from Pages

    Facebook removed the Suggest to Friends link from Pages last week when a bug caused the feature to load incorrectly. However, an article in the Help Center confirms that the option will not be returned to users, and that they should now use the Share button to ask Friends to Like a Page. The closing of this viral channel should reduce Page suggestion spam, but may also stunt the growth of Pages unless they pay for more ads.Admins will still be able access the Suggest to Friends feature on their own Pages,  Users can’t access the feature, but can instead use the Share button, located at the very bottom left Pages. The Share button allows users to make a post of the Page to their profile, “which may appear in their friends’ News Feeds”. Users can also opt to Share directly to specific friends via Message, and can send up to 20 of these at a time.

    The most likely reason for this change was that page administrators were typically the only people likely to use the tool. This also prevents page administrators from encouraging fans to share their page with others.
     There’s also a chance that Facebook will come up with alternative solutions for easily sharing your favorite pages.
