Happy New Year to all friends. I am extremely happy to tell you that on this special occasion our blog got a gift from Google. The Google Page Rank has been defined for www.whitehatandroid.com. Well, some bloggers had already predicted about the PR update in the month of December. I wanted to verify whether it's real or a bug in Google toolbar :)
I checked the PageRank in all data servers.

Increase Speed Rating PictureVirtual Memory

What is virtual memory?


When your system has lack of RAM (Random Access Memory) to run a program or operating system, then windows collaborates the hard disk memory with RAM. Windows move data from RAM to the space of virtual memory called paging file. This frees up RAM and makes it available for other tasks.

Hindi Letters Image
Typing is one of the most important skill of computer users.  It was a time when people used Typewriters even now. I have experienced typing with those typewriters, it's very painful and expectation of mistake since letters are not erasable :) I learned typing with Typewriters when I was at 9th standard 4 years ago. Hardworking is required to excel at this skill! Well what if you have to learn another language like Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Punjabi, Gujarati or any other Indic language? I'd not like to go and learn them all, who has time? I have had a software "Hindi  Writer" which helped me writing in Hindi with my roman (en-us) keyboard. Hindi Writer works well with ease.
          Recently Google launched a software Google Transliteration IME (Input Method Editor). Which allows users to write in supported language like Hindi, Arabic, Marathi, Telugu etc with their existing roman keyboard. It doesn't translates the words but transliterates. Transliteration means a transcription from one alphabet to another or rewrite in a different script.
How does Google Transliteration IME work?
When you type a word say "Google" it converts (transliterates) the script according to the pronunciation instead of what it means in Hindi or other language as "गूगल"

Is any site blocked by your network firewall of your school, college, office or your Hotel?
Last week we knew about "Surf The Web The geeky way" to get the IP address of the any website and use it for browsing the pages.

Readers asked is it convenient to ping and then to surf in that way? or What is the significance of that? I will be answering that now.


Due to the potential danger of some websites or the misuse of Internet access, some network firewalls or the administrators block some sites. However people have become smarter or pretend to be. Using of Proxy and other related software are not safe. As the method of finding proxy is illegal.
I need this most because blogger.com is not allowed to access in my college :( I don't know what their firewall thinks !

How to send free SMS?

Sending free SMS Via!
Is that really possible to send free SMS?

In India and Worldwide



Sending SMS has become a part of our life. Wheather it is a festival, birthday,or any other occasion greeting friends by SMS has become a de facto nowadays. Calling is the secondry, We probably spent more money in sending text messages than the phone calls.
Having an Internet connection adds to it. There are many online websites and offline softwarer which provide free or cheap paid SMS services like skype, 160 by 2, you mint, Indiarocks, smslife , text4free, textmefree, way2sms and thousands of more.
One may be puzzled using and trying these services, some give up searching for a suitable and reliable service including ME. I have tried around 20 websites and finally arrived on two. Today I am going to talk about way2sms.com and 160by2.com, their features and comparison between them. image credit mediabistro.com
You probably have received at least a message with a footer note Sent Via Way2SMS.com

Ping IP Address DNS of Any Site imageBrowse the web in Geeky way
Recently Google launched it's free public DNS. Domain Name System (DNS) is a technology which translates the web address or a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) into the numerical address that is the ip address (and vice versa) to find it over the internet.
When you type any URL into the address bar of web browser. Then the browser sends a request to the DNS server which translates the URL into ip address to find the server of that website you are looking.
I thought why not to perform something new and geeky. Following are the ip addresses of some popular websites, you can directly type them in the web browser instead of the URL :

 http://64.233.181.99/
 Google.com
 http://66.132.218.75/
 Batchmates.com
 http://69.147.76.15/
 Yahoo.com
 http://208.80.152.2/
 Wikipedia.org


To know the ip address of any website or a domain open command prompt in XP/Vista/Win 7 or DOS in windows 98/NT.
Go to Start > Run > type "cmd" which opens the command prompt
> now type
ping www.example.com
Copy the ip address and surf the geeky way.

Note friends, This was all for fun and educational purpose to show how browsers search the webpages.
I invite you to share your  and yours favorite sites with their ip address in this comment section. Let's see if you succeed in finding it's ip address!!

Carbon Foot Print Dioxide imageWe need to be much conscious about our environment. The rate of carbon dioxide emission has increased abruptly. There is a myth that only automobile exhaust and stacks of industries emit carbon dioxide. But, Actually carbon footprint is calculated from all our daily life works, be it driving, vehicle, eating, electricity, travel, woods, oil, paper, computers, stationary, fashion, subway etc.

Carbon Foot Print Calculator .com preview screenshot
There are many online carbon footprint calculators.

CarbonFootPrintCalculator.com

is one of the best calculator, It has wide range of options and questions.It also allows you to set your country, so that you can compare your foot print to the average person of your country.


This will help people to analyze their contribution towards the global warming. And help to reduce carbon emissions as much as they can. I hope Copenhagen Summit brings out some helpful results.
