Bing Search Engine Tips and Tricks

Posted by TechFancy On 1:17 PM 0 comments

I’m pretty sure you may have heard about the new search engine- ‘Bing’ from Microsoft. Nowadays, I usually use Bing instead of Google. I feel it’s a lot better than Google search but it’s just in Beta stage and has a long way to go in order to compete with Google search. Well, if you are planning to try out Bing then have a look at the below tips and tricks.
Bing Search Engine Tips and Tricks

Best Match Feature:
Bing features a ‘Best match’ feature, which sets up the best result in a distinct, easily accessible space at the top of the page. It helps you to identify which result might be most useful, particularly when one link clearly provides the official or authoritative source of information. It’s something similar to the ‘I’m feeling lucky’ feature in Google.

Quick Preview, summary of links:
Whenever you search any word, you get a list of links. On the right hand side of the link you’ll notice a small arrow when you hove the mouse over it. Click on it to get a summary of the link on the right hand side. This is really helpful if you want to go to the exact link where you have the stuff you require.

Related links/ searches:
Bing also displays related links for the keywords you search. You can have a look at related links on the left hand sidebar.

Save or Mail search Results:
You can save each and every search that you perform on Bing. You can also mail searches to your contacts using the Microsoft Silverlight feature.

Direct Download MP3s:
You can easily download MP3’s using Bing. Simply search for the artist or album name followed by ‘contains:mp3’. For instance rammstein contains:mp3. It will yield search results that have link to MP3 files of Rammstein.

Preview video search results:
This feature is something similar to the summary of the links feature mentioned above. Whenever you search for a particular video in Bing, you can preview it in the search results page itself before actually going to the page and viewing it. Just hove your mouse over it to play and preview video.

Using the Bing: Full Version:
If you aren’t a North American resident then you are missing a lot of Bing features. To enjoy all the features simply go to http://www.bing.com/worldwide.aspx and set your language as English – US. You should now have access to all the features.

RSS in search:
Add &format=rss to the end of a link and press enter. You should be able to RSS feeds.

In the last couple of decades identity-theft has taken a lot of forms,here's something which is even more scarier. Think your keys are always safe?Think again.Computer programmers at UC San Diego have built a software called 'Sneaky' which can create an exact replica of a key from its image.

What is even more scaring is that the image need not be a good one,it can use an image of a key from almost any angle to create an exact replica.Cellphone pictures work and, in a chilling example, the team successfully reproduced a key using a shot taken with a telephoto lens from 200 feet away.


"You only need to click a few control points in the image of the key and the 'Sneakey' program does the rest," programmer Benjamin Laxton told a UCSD reporter, "It normalizes the key's size and position so that each pixel then corresponds to a known distance. From this information the height of each of the key cuts can easily be computed and likewise the bitting code can be extracted."

While the UCSD researchers have not released the Sneakey code to the public, they believe that anyone with a basic knowledge of MATLAB and computer vision techniques could build a comparable system.

What can you do to guard against it? Not much, save treat your keys like you do your credit card. Don't publicize its image, because that's all "Sneaky" and software like it would need.

I believe that Sneakey could be very useful for government and defense purposes, but it could be disastrous in the wrong hands. If you have pictures of your keys up on Flickr for any reason, now might be a good time to take them down.

Google announced that it is developing an OS-the Google Chrome Operating System.Google Chrome OS will initially be targeted at netbooks,but will eventually be used on PCs as well.The Search giant says that it's a natural extension of the Google Chrome Browser. "Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS" said the blog post written by Sundar Pichai on Google Blog."Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010,"he added.What is even more interesting is that this announcement has come off just months before Microsoft launches the latest version of its OS -Windows 7.

Will Chrome OS stand out to strike at the heart of Microsoft's software empire??

"We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you on to the web in a few seconds," said the blog post written by Sundar Pichai, vice-president of product management, and Google's engineering director Linus Upson.Both men said that "the operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web" and that this OS was "our attempt to rethink what operating systems should be".

“The software architecture is simple — Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies.”

The announcement could dramatically change the market share of the operating systems,challenging Microsoft's major pie in the OS market.The situation may be similar to the 'browser war' of the 90's.It seems Google wants to systematically eliminate or reduce the Microsoft's dominance in the OS market.

The big question is, will it stand out to the test of time?

The Beta Tag is out of Gmail

Posted by TechFancy On 6:34 AM 0 comments

As a regular Gmail user,you might have wondered why Gmail is still with its Beta tag for so long.It's more than five years Gmail has worn the beta tag.Often this was ridiculed and even of jokes.The search giant has long argued that their applications are kept in the beta status for so long to reflect the amount of testing that needs to be performed.

However,with a view to appealing its business customers Google has dropped the beta name for Google Apps."The end result (many visible and invisible changes later) is that today, beta is a thing of the past. Not just for Gmail, but for all of Google Apps — Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Talk." said Gmail product director Keith Coleman in a blog post.

"Since the beginning of the year, we've focused on making it as easy as possible for large enterprises to switch to Google," said Google Apps senior product manager Rajen Sheth in another blog post.

For those long-time Gmail users who are feeling hard to get used to using Gmail without that familiar grey "BETA" text greeting,you can still get the beta look.Just go to Settings, click on Labs tab, turn on "Back to Beta," and it'll be like Gmail never left beta at all.
