What if Google made a Yahoo like Start up page?

Steve Bryant of GoogleWatch posted this mock up of what Google would look like if it incorporates the style and layout of Yahoo’s Home page.

It seems he started this mockup after reports through Jeremy Zawodny who discovered that Google had ripped off a Yahoo page design. The end layout looks really neat and at the same time, it keeps in mind Google’s primary task.. to provide a simple search avenue for its visitors.

Established in July 2003, The Mozilla Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving choice and promoting innovation on the Internet.  Firefox users and fans were always at the forefront in their effort to speak out for their favorite browser and express themselves in front of a worldwide audience.

The ad campaigns are usually promoted by Spread Firefox, a volunteer run Mozilla advocacy site, with over 50,000 registered members. During this phase of Firefox 1.0 promotion, community marketing into the mainstream was mainly through written testimonials.

A Step by Step guide on Encrypting files using TrueCrypt

368027186 728a9ae3b4 m A Step by Step guide on Encrypting files using TrueCryptTrueCrypt is a free open source disk encryption software that works on both Windows and Linux platforms. No data stored on an encrypted volume can be read (decrypted) without using the correct password/keyfile(s) or correct encryption keys. TrueCrypt does this by creating a virtual hard drive that will read and write encrypted files on the fly. The advantage of using TrueCrypt is that you need not download it everywhere. All you need are the files truecrypt.exe, truecrypt.sys and the volume file you create which you can carry on your flash drive.

Step by Step Tutorial on how to encrypt your Hard disk or data or message using TrueCrypt

Step # 1: Download and install TrueCrypt

Step # 2: Once you Launch TrueCrypt, Click on “Create Volume” button. This launches the Volume Creation wizard that prepares the encryped drive location. Next, choose ” Create a Standard TrueCrypt Volume” and hit Next. Next, click on “Select File“ button. Browse to a place where you want to store your encryped files. In this case, I am selecting askstudent.ajit Note: This is not the file you want to encrypt. Think of this as a Folder Name which in turn would contain the files you want to encrypt later on.
