In an email notification sent to all its Indian users paypal said,

Our customers are our number one priority and we are working tirelessly to improve our service.

The normal operating temperature of iPhone or iPAD is between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). So it could easily mean that while in a hot day, or under the sun, atmosphere around the device (Apple iPhone / iPad) is too hot for it to run and as an user you end up with a costly device showing this type of black screen.
It seems with global warming and all that, the half of the world is out of working temperature range for Apple iPhone and iPad.
For a non technical user, saving files is like “File -> Save” and frankly that’s the way it should be.
Since MS office was launched, there was not much of a format change in the way how office used to save data, resulting a default file format compatibility between all versions of Office (98 / 2000 / XP / 2003).
The default extension for saving a file in MS office (98 / 2k / XP / 2k3) is like,
.doc for office word
.xls for office excel
.ppt for office power point
However, since Office 2007 (and for Office 2010 also) is introduced, a new file format has followed it.
.docx for office word (2007 / 2010)
.xlsx for office excel (2007 / 2010)
.pptx for office power point (2007 / 2010)
In Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010, the default save format is the new, above mentioned file extensions.
Off late, lot of business and home users are facing a common problem. Their contact and business associate may be using a PC running and new version of MS Office (2007 or 2010) where as they are still with the older generation.
So how do you open a file (.docx / .xlsx / .pptx) saved in Microsoft Office (Word / Excel / Power Point) 2010 or 2007 in older version of MS Office (2000 / XP / 2003) ?
To solve this incompatibility issue, Microsoft is offering a free compatibility pack for Microsoft Office 2000, XP and 2003.
WordPress 3.1 which is due in late 2010 would be the last version to support the PHP 4 and MySQL 4, where as users are in PHP/MySQL 4 platform wont be able to upgrade to WordPress 3.2 (due in first half of 2011) since minimum requirement for WordPress 3.2 would be PHP 5.2 and MySQl 5.0.15.
Common users are advised not to worry, as little they know, most of them are all ready running PHP 5 platform and those who would still stay in PHP 4, the built in feature of WordPress auto updater will warn the about the issue.
RBI vs Paypal continues as from 1st August Paypal to stop the bank / wire / electronic money transfer / withdrawal for Indian users.
From July 29th, Indian users will only be able to withdraw money via cheque. However the good news is according to Paypal, its a temporary issue which they are working to solve as soon as possible and as a good will gesture, they will refund the USD 5, which is usual fee for any Indian users to withdraw via cheque during this problem period.
Dr. David Warren is no more. The Australian scientist, who changed the aviation industry with his invention of Black Box died this Monday (July 19) at the age of 85.
The idea of Black Box came to his mind in early 50′s when he was asked to help the investigation of an air (Commet) crash and it was mid 50′s when he came up with a prototype Black Box. But it was early 60′s when the world’s aviation industry started to make it a mandate for all commercial air craft to install the device.
Matter of fact, he also explains the issue was present in earlier iPhone’s too, but statistically speaking, over 80% users walked out with a bumper along with iPhone 3G or 3GS compare to 20% with iPhone 4. Steve Jobs also claimed that, even with present situation, the call drop rate of iPhone 4 is less than 1% (Network carrier stats) and 0.05% of iPhone users actually registered a complain with Apple help line about any network reception related issue.
The installation or rather up-gradation was simple enough with WordPress auto updater. One just has to make sure that everything else (like plugin and themes) is WP 3.0 compatible and that’s it, rest is upto the WP auto updater. One single click and the platform is now running WP 3.0.
It has been a common problem for orkut users to find their account getting hacked. Most of us blame Google (orkut) for the reason, thinking that they have lower level of security. However the truth is, passwords are never leaked from Google’s end, its us, the user caused actions leads to a password leakage.
One of those reasons are like falling victims of topic like this, poping up in communities.
Earlier this month Google bought a travel data analysis firm ITA for 700 million cash. At first glance, it may be seen as a normal business deal, how ever of a closer look, ITA powers data service for hundreds of web based air line booking service along with the decision maker Microsoft BING.
Google taking control over the source from which BING gets powered about its travel search would certainly a worrying factor for Bing officials. Bing till now having better performance, where users can enter travel quarries and Bing engine predicts the best possible deal both considering time and fare.
Google plans to use ITA data to power travel / flight search and ticket booking directly from their search engine.
