Next Gen Computing - World And Web United
Technology never stops, but sometimes does become monotonous. So here is the latest in Computer Technology - Connecting the Real world with the Virtual world at Lightning speed.
Imagine a computer of the size of a palmtop, but no keyboard and mouse, completely touch screen, and literally nothing else. It can scan, save, store and analyze anything like a Digital camera connected to a computer via blue-tooth to a high speed computer, with an image editing software installed.
Scan any newspaper or a document, select any word, that's it - Dictionary and Thesaurus for that word will be displayed.

Meta Tags - Importance and How To Use

Meta Tags - Importance and How To Use
For any website a good percentage of traffic comes from search engines like Google, Yahoo & Bing Search. But when search bots from these search engines visit your website for archiving and indexing, they may or may not pick the keywords, words, phrases and other important information from your website which you want to be indexed.
So you must guide the search engine bots, what to be indexed and what should not, which can be done by Meta Tags.
Meta tags are placed in the <Head> region of any blog/web site. These tags mainly contain the Title of the website (webpage), description, all keywords, pages to be indexed / left, author's name, e-mail, language of website, copyright information etc. These meta tags are optional, so you may add all of them or some of them or even none. But for Search Engine Optimization and better indexing (simply put - to get more traffic from search engines) you must add meta tags to your website.


Steps to follow:
Log in to Blogger, go to Template -> Edit HTML
And find this code in the template:
<head>

And immediately BELOW/AFTER it, paste these lines:
<!-- [ Meta Tag SEO ] -->
<meta charset='utf-8'/>
<meta content='width=device-width, initial-scale=1' name='viewport'/>
<meta content='blogger' name='generator'/>
<meta content='text/html; charset=UTF-8' http-equiv='Content-Type'/>
<link href='http://www.blogger.com/openid-server.g' rel='openid.server'/>
<link expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl' rel='openid.delegate'/>
<link expr:href='data:blog.url' rel='canonical'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
<b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;error_page&quot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> - <data:blog.title/></title>
</b:if></b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;error_page&quot;'>
<title>Page Not Found - <data:blog.title/></title>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;archive&quot;'>
<meta content='noindex' name='robots'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.searchLabel'>
<meta content='noindex,nofollow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.isMobile'>
<meta content='noindex,nofollow' name='robots'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;error_page&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.metaDescription' name='description'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.homepageUrl != data:blog.url'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName + &quot;, &quot; + data:blog.pageTitle + &quot;, &quot; + data:blog.title' name='keywords'/>
</b:if></b:if>

<meta content='AUTHOR NAME' name='Author'/>
<meta content='SITE NAME' name='copyright'/>
Change those lines in blue color above.

For all of the meta tags with name="robots", select one of these as per your requirement/choice:
- INDEX,FOLLOW  Index this page and follow all links.
- INDEX,NOFOLLOW  Index this page but do not follow or index links on this page.
- NOINDEX,FOLLOW  Do not index this page but follow all links.
- NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW  Do not index this page. Do not follow or index links on this page.

Once you have updated all the meta tags for your blog, do check them once using the meta tags analyzer. It will check for the correctness of each and every meta tag that is present in your blog/webpage.
**UPDATE: The Description Meta Tag, if not modified, causes a serious error in Blogger/BlogSpot blogs, please read this post : Duplicate Meta Tags and Titles Issue - Solved to avoid the error.

Blogger Help - Add Read More link to your posts

Although this tutorial is the easiest way to truncate posts on Blogger blog, but being a javascript based hack, this method is not SEO friendly. If you want to use a SEO friendly post-truncating method on your blog, then kindly read this post.

Most of the bloggers, want to show more than one post in their blog's home page, but displaying all the content on the home page of each and every post makes the home page very lengthy, and visitors may miss out any article while scrolling down the entire length of the page.
So here's a method for bloggers to display only a part of  the posts, and not the entire posts. If a visitor wants to read the complete article then he/she will click on the "Read More" link at the bottom of the post, which will be redirected to the particular post.

Steps to follow:
1. Log into the Blogger.com account
2. Go to "Layout" section
3. Back up your current template, by downloading it.
4.  Now click on "Expand Widget Templates"
5. Now find this code - ]]></b:skin>
6.  Just AFTER that code add these lines

<style>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
span.fullpost {display:inline;}
<b:else/>
span.fullpost {display:none;}
</b:if>
</style>
7. Now again find this code : <data:post.body/>
8. And just after this, add these code lines:

<!--READ-MORE-STARTS--><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read More!</a>
</b:if><!--READ-MORE-STOPS-->

If you want to shift the "Read More!" text to the extreme-right side, use this code:

<!--READ-MORE-STARTS--><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><div style="text-align: right;">Read More !</div></a>
</b:if><!--READ-MORE-STOPS-->
9. Now save the template.

IMPORTANT :Now these adjustments will NOT show your previous posts with "Read More" tag, but you can display them with Read More tags, by editing them with instructions as below:
From now on, whenever making a new post, the part of the post you want to HIDE on your main homepage, write those lines in between these code lines:

<span class="fullpost">WRITE THE PART OF THE POST YOU WANT TO HIDE HERE</span>

See the screen shot below for details:


NOTE 1: After writing new posts, always proof-read your edit HTML section, to avoid mistakes, one such mistake is discussed below:

Make sure, that "Edit HTML", while writing posts looks exactly like this:

<div style="text-align: left;">Post in brief, may include pictures too
<span class="fullpost">Hidden part</span>
</div>


In the above example notice that I have closed span, before div, that placement is very necessary, if you put like this </div> </span>, i.e. closing div first and span later this will NOT work, because span has been started inside div, so it must be closed within div tag.

In case you have multiple paragraphs, while posting a post, and you are giving same text alignment to all the paras, then by default, after every para, the div element will be closed, and again it will start for the next para, so THIS SHOULD NOT be like this, you have to start <div> in the beginning of the post, end it at the last, and make sure <span class="fullpost">Hidden part</span>, is between your div tags.
If you want your previous posts also to hide part of their text, then you must edit them and add span tags to them.


*UPDATE: Now there's a new hack to make all this process automatic: READ HERE about AUTOMATIC READ MORE trick for Blogger.

NOTE 2: If the above method does not work in your blog, here try this second method:

Microsoft Launches Windows Azure - OS Over Internet

Windows Azure
Welcome to Fifth Generation Of Computing
The project, called Windows Azure, was unveiled by Microsoft head techie Ray Ozzie during a conference for more than 6,000 Microsoft software developers at the Los Angeles Convention Center. If successful, Azure could transform Windows from a wasting asset to be defended at all costs into an offensive weapon that gives Microsoft advantages even Google can't match.
"What we announced today was much broader than anything anyone has tried before," says Senior Vice-President Robert Muglia. Microsoft on Monday announced a version of Windows that runs over the Internet from inside Microsoft's own data centers. It's less a replacement for the operating system that runs on one's own PC than it is an alternative for developers, intended to let them write programs that live inside Microsoft's data centers as opposed to on the servers of a given business.
"It's a transformation of our software and a transformation of our strategy," said Ray Ozzie, a computing industry pioneer who now serves as Microsoft's chief software architect.
There weren't many details on how Microsoft will charge for Azure, saying it will be free during the preview period. Final pricing, Ozzie said, "will be competitive with the marketplace."

var i;
for (i = 0; i < obj.count ; i++)
{
var href = "'" + obj.value.items[i].link + "'";
var item = "<li>" + "<a href=" + href + ">" + obj.value.items[i].title + "</a> </li>";

So only write YOUR_WEBSITE.BLOGSPOT.COM or YOUR_WEBSITE.COM (custom domains)

You can see my popular posts widget in the sidebar.

Free Images To Use

In my last post, I have written about selecting the best Image host for your website or any online work. But one more problem faced by webmasters and people in their online work is knowingly or unknowingly they use images which are actually the property of some other website/person, who may not like his property being used by others, and in worst case you may face the consequences of copyright infringement.
The most common way of finding images on Internet by people is to use Image search tools offered by famous and popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, AOL, Microsoft etc.
But the problem in using images from these websites is that those images are not checked for copyrights by these search engines, just a message is shown along with the search results "Image may be scaled down and subject to copyright." (Like in Google image results)

Fortunately there are several websites that stock royalty free and images and photographies. Below you will find links to some useful ones.
*Update : The list above contains many websites which are although very popular, but when recently cheking their "Terms Of Use", I noticed that the points are quite confusing, for example in Stock.Xchng, the rules says
You may use the images in digital format on websites, multimedia presentations, broadcast film and video, cell phones.
Then it says, SELLING AND REDISTRIBUTION OF THE IMAGE (INDIVIDUALLY OR ALONG WITH OTHER IMAGES) IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! DO NOT SHARE THE IMAGE WITH OTHERS! (In capital letters)
Finally it says, Always ask permission from the photographer if you want to use the Image,in website templates that You intend to sell or distribute.
So finally I have compiled this list of websites, which have "Public Domain Photos", which can be used for both personal and commercial purposes, and the images are completely "copyrights free".
(Contains list of MANY MANY more websites with public domain images, in a well categorized manner)

To Create A Scheduled Post In Blogger

While blogging, sometimes bloggers do feel that although they have started a blog entry, but this is not the correct time to publish it (like if insufficient data is available at that time or if the post becomes more meaningful only if posted at a specific date or time), so at that time there's a feature given by Blogger that can be utilized.

First of all write your blog post as usual.
Then before you publish the post, click on the "Post Options" link above the "PUBLISH POST " link.


Now change the "Post date and time" default values, by some Future Date & Time, and that's it, now the post will be published only on that date and time.

Image Hosting Websites Guide

Image Hosting Websites Guide
Image hosting services are usually searched by webmasters, but now anyone who is a member of an online forum or social-networking website, do need an image host at some point of time.
And of course when using an image hosting website, the most important features we look for, are:
- Unlimited images hosting
- Proper image files management (in virtual online folders)
- Direct linking (hot linking)
- Most importantly, Unlimited allowed bandwidth

First of all here's the most common and famous image hosts available on Internet:
- imageshack.us
- photobucket.com
- Picasa.com
- Tinypic.com
- picturetrail.com

Now considering those requirements, and comparing the above listed websites, the final selection is :

1. Tinypic.com
In the website selected and listed above, not only you get all above mentioned features , but also even without registration you can use their service, moreover you can watermark the images being uploaded and also you can resize the images while uploading.
The only disadvantage associated with Tinypic.com, is that they rename the files into some random numbers, which I initially thought, will make those pictures less search engines friendly, but then I realized that if the content in the posts is good, then the images can easily be detected by search engines, so if you are also looking for the same features as written above then you can easily go for this website and use them for your websites or in forums or social networking websites.
Moreover you can and must use alt tags with your images, so as to make the images more search engines friendly.

- The reasons for NOT selecting photobucket.com is because it does not provide unlimited bandwidth, rather after crossing the month's limit, for rest of the days in the month, it displays a cheap message of "Get premium account" instead of the original images.
- Although imageshack.us provides an almost unlimited bandwidth (300 MB/hour), but the problem is that they have not given the facility to arrange the images in folders, which makes it all a complete mess.

iSleep on my notebook

My first addiction is of course surfing the net on my computer, but as a human I do give importance to food and sleep too !
Now although I do eat many things while doing work on my PC, but for sleep i have to leave this place and go to my bed, but now thanks to Ivonne Dippmann, I can sleep on my notebook itself :)




i -sleep, a comfortable soft pillow which can be attached on the top of each leptop and functiones like a rescue west in an airplane - with the difference...it really saves us. If we tend to fall asleep, we just close our laptop, a pillow gets filled with warm air, music is being played and after 10 minutes the alarm clock rings.
Heating up
By closing the laptop an air cushion blows itself up, which is connected via usb with your computer. The computer is in the "sleep mode" and air is blown into the pillow. The material is coated with Latex at the inside, so the supplied air can be kept inside for a longer time. By opening the laptop again, the air leaves the cushion through an integrated valve.

Making music
By closing the computer a playlist can be activated by a music program. This playlist can be individually created. The titles being played correspond to the duration of the desired sleeping time. Recommended sleeping time is 10 min. More than this you will fall into the deep sleep mode which makes you even more tired by waking up:)

Waking up
After the last music title being played or 10 min of silence passed, the possibility exists to be waken up. The waking time, the waking tone are individually adjustable.

Microholas Project - 500 Gigs on a Disk

Now 500 GB on a single DVD like disk !

Although till date an HD-DVD or a Sony Blu-ray disk was being used for storing a maximum of 80 GB, but researchers from The University of Berlin, partnered with Budapest University of Technology and Economics and Universita Politecnica delle Marche in Italy, have worked out how to cram 500GB of data onto Blu-ray or HD DVD discs, saying that 1TB of data is the aim. The Microholas project created a microholographic recording technique that uses nanostructures inside the disc instead of on the surface. 
The overall objective of MICROHOLAS is to implement the microholographic technique for optical storage on CD/DVD-like disks for digital data. The project aims at long-term storage by utilizing periodic nanostructures in the disk volume rather than on the surface as in conventional optical storage systems.
Although I 'm waiting for a 1 TB external HDD, but this looks better too!

How to embed and place images/pictures in blogger posts

If you are using Blogger for blogging, then in the older version of Blogger, you may face some problems while uploading and placing images or pictures in between the posts. But if you are using the new Blogger-Beta (Blogger in Draft), then the complete work of placing the pictures anywhere in the post will be a piece of cake for you, as you have to simply drag and drop the images in the place you want and if you want to add a caption to the image, then simply click on the link "Add caption" and write anything about the image (source, description etc.).

Remember to log into Draft.Blogger.Com and NOT to Blogger.com

See the examples below, how easily you can change the position of the pictures:


Image at TOP


Image at LEFT


Image at RIGHT


Image beside any PARAGRAPH
