What is there beyond Websites, Mobile Applications or the current Technology?

Wait there, this post doesn't give you the answer for "What is there beyond websites, mobile applications or any technologies what we use today?". We ourselves are trying to find the answer for it ;).

One can see minor or/and major changes/advancements in the field of technology in our day-to-day life, thus it is difficult to predict where we are would reach in terms of technology.

When we took a look at the most advanced technologies what we have today, we found few things which took major leap in the advancement are:

iPhone (Phones)
iPhone was not just a mobile phone which one could carry with them easily, it is one of the device which made a revolution in the cellphone industry by integrating many things. One can use it as a Business phone, for playing mind boggling games, once can use Siri to work faster, smarter and easier and many other uses which makes this a ever scrolling list.

For Business people the iPhone comes with high-quality speakerphones with noise-cancellation software, a second mic for noise cancellation and improved microphone and speaker electronics.

Lytrocam (Camera, Photography)
Right from their website,
Lytro is transforming light field technology from a scientific theory into a reality for everyone. Get to know the team that’s bringing this innovation out of the lab." 
There is no harm in mentioning this device as a game changer in the field of photography, Lytro makes it easy for anyone to "click" first and then process the pics at their convenience. So, one doesn't have to take all the pain, or do the circus to get a pic with perfect angle or waste time in focusing.

Since it captures the entire light field, thus one will have better control while processing the images. And this marvelous device is for those, who would like to have their camera to be compact and handy and for those who wants to "capture the moments and not for those who create or wait for the moments and then capture". (esp. the guys with DSLRs).

Facebook has started rolling out this new feature to the developers and also to all the users, it said to go public by first week of October'2011. We know it is hard to wait for 2 weeks to see and experience the new interface. So, below are few things to note and instructions to enable the facebook Timeline on your profile:

Important things to Note:

  1. Expect bugs. Since, this hasn't rolled out to public you should expect bugs and you can report them here.
  2. Once you enable this new feature, you will have an option to see this only to yourself and wait for facebook to publish it (in a fornight's time) or you publish it immediately.

  4. URL for your Timeline
  5. Your Facebook account should be verified, either a mobile number or a credit card should be connected to your account.
  6. After activation, be sure to check your privacy settings and also make the necessary changes in your Timeline so that your friends don't see any OLD wall posts which you think is not good have it in your at this moment.
  7. You are allowing access to Facebook Developer application and it doesn't mean that you are building or going to build any application. All you need to do after allowing access is to work around few basic settings, simple.

  • Log into Facebook.
  • Enable developer mode, if you haven’t already. To do this, type “developer” into the Facebook search box, click the first result (it should be an app made by Facebook with a few hundred thousand users), and add the app and grant the access.
Facebook Developer App- Grant Access
  • Jump into the developer app (if Facebook doesn’t put you there automatically, it should be in your left-hand tool bar). Direct Link
  • Create a new app. You will not be publishing this app neither to Facebook nor for the other users to view/use. Give your new app any display name and namespace. Read through and agree to the Platform Privacy agreement. This is the step you need to be verified for.
  • Ensure you’re in your new app’s main settings screen. You should see your app’s name near the top of the page.
  • Look for the “Open Graph” header, and click the “Get Started using open graph” link.
  • Create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”, or “eat” a “sandwich”
  • This should drop you into an action type configuration page. Change a few of the default settings, and click through all three pages of settings and wait for few minutes.
  • Go back to your Facebook homescreen. An invite to try Timeline should be waiting at the top of the page.

    Google Search Now Alerts Users When a Site Has Been Compromised

    This site may be compromised
    An example of notification
    We know most of them have been benefited by the Google's service on search issues like
    "This site may harm your computer" notifications, which will display an alert when a harmful website is listed its search results page.

    Now, there is another security feature released in Google's search engine that alerts users when a website is compromised by hackers. Google is trying at its best to make this web a safer place, and this feature will add a notification in the search results as "This site may be compromised" for the websites which are compromised.

    This alert will avoid people visiting   compromised websites and thus, it avoids users becoming the victims of malware, spamming and phishing attacks.

    If you see this message for your own website or a favorite website of yours in the Google search results, request the webmaster to check for any suspicious codes within the website and clean up the site if you see any (it means, it has been hacked). You can also visit here investigate and resolve the issue.

    Difference between "This site may harm your computer" and "This site may be compromised".
    • "This site may harm your computer" is displayed when Google's malware detection system identifies a site as potentially hosting malware.
    • "This site may be compromised" is displayed when a site is classified as either hacked or compromised but has not detected a malware. 
    Google also stated that "In both cases, our detection might not be perfect -- we continually work on improving our system -- but it would be wise to proceed with caution." 

    There is versioning for everything in internet world and there are improvements, so we know many of them are relying on Google's malware notification for years and we know even this new service will help a lot of site owners and visitors out there. Share your thoughts in the comments section.
