New York Times Website Blocked By China


It is not a new thing for China being criticized for isolating herself from the media. It's been reported lately, that the access to The New York Times has been blocked in China. People living in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou tried to access The New York Times and they received a message stating, "The Site is Not Available". However it's been noted that the site was accessible through Virtual Private Network (VPN).

The officials were rejecting to state anything and said they had no information on the case. Though the Foreign Ministry made a point and reminded that the China which gave a free rein to Internet before and during the Beijing Olympics in August, was within its rights to block websites with content illegal under Chinese law.

It is said that China regularly blocks sites it finds inappropriate. Especially those related to Tibet. AsiaWeek said, "Access to the Chinese-language versions of the BBC, Voice of America and Hong Kong media Ming Pao News and AsiaWeek were blocked early this month".

Readers need to know that, the China has the world's greatest number of internet users. In response to this fact, China has set up a team which keeps a keen eye on the web to remove any sensitive information and warn bloggers and the site owners who post anything against Chinese law.

They launched a mouse that has gone wireless and has changed the way people scroll. This mouse is given 360 degree scrolling design. It is The Mighty Mouse.

This high-tech and nice looking mouse works on a very secure & reliable BlueTooth Technology. It can be taken anywhere you go as it can be paired with any bluetooth enabled Mac. It also eases a load on batteries while you're on the go. It merely requires either 1 or 2 AA size batteries.

The Mighty Mouse's tracking engine is based on laser technology. So the performance wise it's 20 times better than any optical mouse, giving you more accuracy. It's quite responsive on any surfaces. You can simply leave your mouse pad at home or office and go for a dinner with your client. It works perfectly fine on the dining table just as it works on your office desk.

3 Major cables namely: Sea Me We3 partly, Sea Me We4 and FLAG have been cut at 7:28am, “7:33am and 8:06am respectively. All of these cables are located in the Mediterranean between Sicily and Tunisia. There's just something about undersea internet cables that seem to have them get severed in groups. The causes of these cables cut are not yet clear.

The internet traffic between Europe & Asia is highly affected. The workaround done for a while is that, the traffic has been rerouted through U.S.A. Though the traffic from Europe to Algeria & Tunisia is not affected. A first appraisal at 7:44 am UTC gave an estimate of the following impact on the voice traffic (in percentage of out of service capacity): Source

  • Saudi Arabia: 55% out of service
  • Djibouti: 71% out of service
  • Egypt: 52% out of service
  • United Arab Emirates: 68% out of service
  • India: 82% out of service
  • Lebanon: 16% out of service
  • Malaysia: 42% out of service
  • Maldives: 100% out of service
  • Pakistan: 51% out of service
  • Qatar: 73% out of service
  • Syria: 36% out of service
  • Taiwan: 39% out of service
  • Yemen: 38% out of service
  • Zambia: 62% out of service

Reports from France Telecom state that, they immediately alerted one of the two maintenance boats based in the Mediterranean area. This France Telecom Marine cable ship based at Seyne-sur-Mer has received its mobilization order early this afternoon and will cast off tonight at 3:00 am with 20 kilometers spare cable on board.

It should be on location on Monday morning for a relief mission. Priority will be given to the recovery of the Sea Me We4 cable, then on the Sea Me We3. By December 25th, Sea Me We4 could be operating. By December 31st, the situation should be back to normal.

Search Images that Contain Faces OR Photos OR ClipArt etc.


Google Image Search has launched new search options - Content Type. The options available under this category are - News Content, Faces, Photo Content, Clip Art, Line Drawings and Any Content. Searching images exactly that match your requirement is a very challenging task. i.e. The search terms may match the words you type but, images may not appear in the style you want them.

Suppose you want a small picture or a logo kind of thing for a Bill(Invoice), you go to Google Image Search and type in "Bill". The result will be actually scanned bills or pictures of Bill Gates or Bill Clinton. Now search with exactly the same term "Bill" but include "Clip Art" as a type of content and you'll be able to get the pictures that appear themselves as "Bill".

it just has become a lot easier to find the images you're looking for. All of these options can be selected from the "Any content" drop down in the blue title bar on any search results page, or by selecting one of the "Content types" on the Advanced Image Search page.

Yahoo Mail Launches Social Networking Features


Yahoo Mail has launched social networking features into email service. Different tools are provided that let people use email service to make different communities on friends or interest. Yahoo Mail is having around 275 million users world wide and the Vice President, John Kremer feels that - Mail is the largest dormant social graph.

Now the smarter inbox puts all the emails from friends and family in a separate file so that it doesn't get mixed up with other work related emails. Giving more spam protection. An authorization is given for the first time to install third party softwares in the inbox. For example, Movie recommendation service Flixster, tools for the popular blog service WordPress.

As experienced with most of the forums, links from the different websites for the images can be found in Yahoo Mail's messages. Also Xoopit, widely used by gmail users till date, will now fetch all the images from your inbox and store at one place. It gives users a facility to view all photographs [even the photographs stored in oldest email] at one place.

It is a very good initiative by Yahoo to attract more people to it's popular email service and let their existing users spend more time on their ad-supported pages. Yahoo has put one exciting features available for developers, which is found in a smart social networking website, FaceBook - To let third-party developers create fun, hip, or functional applications.

Yahoo isn't trying to be a MySpace or Facebook, but wants to add "the right bits of social that make sense to our audience," said Yahoo Audience Product Division vice president Ash Patel. It is going to be a really interesting war to see where the user bases end up.
