No comments:



QuickerTek has introduced the newest 802.11n device the Quicky3. The Quicky3 is the third generation Quicky, and an improvement over the previous Quicky models. Having a mile line of sight range, this 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz unit draws 1/2 less power then the 1st and 2nd generations and has the theoretical limit of 300 megabits per second of 802.11n (the previous models were 802.11b/g which ran 54 megabits per second), the Quicky3 has a detachable 5 dbi high gain antenna so that you can connect other antennas. And is available from QuickerTek's webstore or from participating resellers.

Quicky3 works on any Mac with any open USB port with operating system OS X 10.4.x, 10.5.x, and 10.6.x It conforms to the wireless standards 802.11b/g/n, making it compatible with all networks not exclusively AirPort networks. In fact it, should work on most if not all wireless networks, especially modern ones like; D Link, Linksys and Belkin just to name a few. Quicky3 supports 64/128~bit WEP, WPA2 (AES with IEEE 802.11x) and WPA(TKIP with IEEE 802.11x) wireless encryption.

CyberDuck Adds Google Storage and Amazon S3 File Versioning

No comments:



A major new version of Cyberduck is now available, with a plethora of new features and bugfixes but most prominently support for Google Storage and file versioning in Amazon S3.

---
Among the newest additions is also the integration of Access Control List (ACL) editing for S3 and Google Storage in Cyberduck. This allows the definition of fine grained permissions to be granted to different individual users. Google Storage allows the use of email address registered with Google Accounts as grant identifiers. Using Cyberduck, one can limit access to files stored in Google Storage selectively to anyone who has an email address registered with Google. Access is granted only when logged in using a Google Account and authenticated against the ACL. This makes secure sharing of potentially big files with collaborators a snap.

File versioning support for S3 is now available in a most user friendly way. Choosing to show hidden files in the browser also displays all revisions, allowing to revert back to a previous version making it current. Versioning can be enabled per bucket in the S3 tab of the Browser Info panel. Additional support to selectively enable S3 Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Delete per bucket in Cyberduck, secures files from deletion by requesting a one-time passcode from a hardware token.

For users migrating to Cyberduck from third-party software, bookmarks of various other FTP clients can now be imported.

For security improvements, users are now warned when opening an unsecure connection to a server transmitting user credentials in plaintext. A prompt to switch to a secured connection if the FTP server supports SSL/TLS is displayed.

Oracle Hires Former HP CEO Mark Hurd as President

No comments:



Oracle today announced that Mark V. Hurd has joined Oracle as President and has been named to Oracle's Board of Directors. Mr. Hurd will report to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison.

"Mark did a brilliant job at HP and I expect he'll do even better at Oracle," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. "There is no executive in the IT world with more relevant experience than Mark. Oracle's future is engineering complete and integrated hardware and software systems for the enterprise. Mark pioneered the integration of hardware with software when Teradata was a part of NCR."

"Mark is an outstanding executive and a proven winner," said Oracle President Safra Catz. "I look forward to working with him for years to come. As Oracle continues to grow we need people experienced in operating a $100 billion business."

"I believe Oracle's strategy of combining software with hardware will enable Oracle to beat IBM in both enterprise servers and storage," said Mark Hurd. "Exadata is just the beginning. We have some exciting new systems we are going to announce later this month at Oracle OpenWorld. I'm excited to be a part of the most innovative technology team in the IT industry."

Early last month Hurd resigned his position as CEO and Chairman of HP after an investigation surrounding a claim of sexual harassment.



*thanks iclarified*

I guess Oracle's CEO Larry Ellison puts his money where his mouth is, with his earlier comments on the forced resigning of hp CEO was the dumbest move by a board since apple kicked Steve Jobs out.

The Best Way to Learn Chemistry

No comments:



Chem Pro 1.1, the ultimate Chemistry application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Chem Pro is the only Chemistry resource you will need to excel in either AP Chemistry or General Chemistry. Chem Pro combines three great applications into one. An amazing lesson library containing a total of 80 videos that cover the entire course of AP/General Chemistry, eight incredible sets of flash cards, and two essential tools - a molar mass calculator and a unit converter.

Lessons: Chem Pro contains a total of 80 video lessons - over 31 hours of playback time. These lessons are dedicated to helping students solve problems, the most important skill to have if you want to excel in a Chemistry course. This is the perfect companion to have after you step out of the classroom. Problems are solved stepwise at a slow and easy to follow pace. These videos don't just cover one example problem per topic, they cover all the possible problem scenarios that you would encounter in your homework or on an exam.

Only what is important to solving the problem is covered, and there are no times where the video goes off topic. Every Chemistry topic is covered, from calculating molar masses to drawing Lewis structures to weak acid/base equilibrium. If you want to see what a lesson covers without watching the whole video, just tap the blue arrow next to the lesson name and the details of that lesson will appear. All 80 videos are downloaded right onto your iPhone or iPod touch along with the application so you won't have to download anything else when you want to watch a lesson. You can learn whenever and wherever you go. All the videos are designed specifically for the iPhone's screen so they are not blurry or hard to read. These videos don't come from YouTube either, so you can be safely assured that you are not wasting your money when you buy this app.

Flash Cards: Chem Pro contains eight sets of flash cards specifically designed for what any student needs to memorize for his or her Chemistry course. With these flash cards, you can easily memorize the 40 basic element names and symbols, the 20 common polyatomic ion names and formulae, the common acid names, solution colors (specifically for the AP Exam), and the 13 VESPR molecular geometries.

After you have memorized this material, you will be sure to have a heads up on your classmates when exam time comes around. Simply select what you would like to memorize from the list of flash cards, and you are presented with clean user interface removed of any distractions. Just tap on the flash card and it amazingly flips around to show you the answer. Just swipe back and forth to go to the previous or next card. It's that simple! What's even better is that every time you go to a flash card set, it automatically randomizes the order of the cards so that you can quiz yourself to make sure you know the material. This great feature can save you hours of time making index cards to memorize Chemistry concepts.

Tools: Chem Pro contains two essential and time saving Chemistry tools - a molar mass calculator and a unit converter. While it is important to know how to calculate the molar mass of any compound or convert common units, these tools can save you an enormous amount of time doing these tedious calculations. With the molar mass calculator, simply scroll and pick the elements in your molecular formula and hit enter! The app does all the work. The molar mass calculator is pre-programmed with all the elements that you would find in any molecule used in Chemistry courses.

The most common elements are conveniently placed at the front of the calculator for quick and easy molar mass calculations and you can tap the same element multiple times to get more in your formula. Have a molecular formula that contains parentheses? No problem! Use the parentheses buttons to easily calculate the molar masses of complicated molecules. Have a compound that is a hydrate? Don't worry! Just tap the hydrate button to easily add water molecules in your molecular formula. The unit converter contains all the standard units for length, mass, volume, temperature, pressure, energy and time.

Simply scroll back and forth between the different categories of units. Type the number and the select the unit you want to convert and you are automatically presented with a choice of conversions. In addition, the unit converter supports negative numbers and scientific notation for those tiny or huge numbers.

Chem Pro was developed by students for students. It will not only teach you Chemistry in a way you won't find in the classroom, but also provide you with several time saving tools you will love to use. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about anything in the application (including the lesson or video content) please feel free to utilize Chem Pro's built in e-mail form to send us your thoughts, or you can just send an e-mail to iHelpNYC. Please try to be as detailed as possible.

Pricing and Availability:
Chem Pro 1.1 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. If you are interested in Chem Pro, make sure to try out Chem Pro Lite which is also now available on the App Store. Chem Pro Lite contains the first 10 lessons of Chem Pro for an unbeatable price of free.
