Sony just announced the PlayStation 4 few hours ago at the E3 conference 2013. I think it looks more appealing than the Xbox One and hardware wise there aren’t any huge improvements like PS3 had when comparing with PS2 but its acceptable. PS3 still handles great graphics without a glitch and PS4 is certainly has better hardware. PlayStation 3′s “Reality synthesizer” GPU delivered about 400 Gigaflops and PS4 GPU said to have 18 compute units and 1.84 Gigaflops of performance. So its about 450% times powerful than the PS3′s GPU.
PS4 features an AMD Jaguar architecture based X64 APU ( Accelerated Processing Unit ) which incorporates CPU , GPU and also the memory controller on to a single chip package. Clock speed of the processor will be about 2Ghz but information about that is still unclear. Xbox One also features same processing architecture so this will make developers somewhat easier to support both platforms. PS4 takes lead in the RAM department because it features 8GB of GDDR5 RAM whereas Xbox One got GDDR3. Sure GDDR5 has advantages when thinking about the memory bandwidth but it has more latency when comparing with GDDR3, So don’t expect PS4 to be so much faster than the Xbox just because of the RAM. But its really nice to see Sony went with GDDR5 technology. Continue reading →
Bootstrap framework is super popular among the web designers and there are too much web sites on the internet which uses the default bootstrap themes, making those easily identifiable as a bootstrap based web site. It’s a true fact that you can build super awesome and responsive themes by using Bootstrap. Twitter built Bootstrap to make it easy to design web sites but it might look little bit hard to understand for the newbies.

I was a fan of Kloxo for nearly a 3 years and I have wrote many posts about How to install kloxo , Kloxo project updates and a look back after 3 years . Kloxo has become almost a dead project by now. There are so many bugs present in kloxo and no one seems to address the issues. Its sad to let go of a great control panel which was there to rescue when you needed a free control panel in the past. I used to recommend kloxo to anyone because of its simplicity and ease of use. But not anymore,
Kloxo-MR is a fork of original LXCenter’s kloxo project and its developed by Mustafa Ramadan, hence the “MR”. Kloxo MR not only fixes the bugs of Kloxo but it has many additional features like the ability to switch to Nginx server. Its nice to see kloxo getting some fixes and going forward.Here are the specs taken from their web site, Continue reading →

You might remember about Liberty Reserve, the web site enabled people to send and receive money just like Paypal. But there was a problem with Liberty Reserve, it is that LR was mostly used by Cyber criminals. I know that there were people who used LR for genuine purposes but LR was the most famous currency among the hackers and pirates.
3 days ago Liberty Reserve’s founder and CEO Arthur Bodvosky belanchuk got arrested over in Costa rica because of the ongoing allegations about money laundering. And site is offline and pointing to different name servers. There aren’t any FBI notices or anything when you visiting the home page. Its just not available. Long time Liberty Reserve users knows that this is not the first time that Liberty Reserve owner got arrested but this time its hardly unlikely that LR will come back. People seems to lost thousands of dollars thanks to this raid. Read the comments on this venturebeat.com article.
Bitcoin seems to be capitalizing on this incident as people are moving in to bitcoin for their shady deals. Bitcoin price climbed up a little bit after this incident and now its at $134 average on mtgox.
According to the head of Google’s web spam team Matt Cutts, Penguin 2.0 update has been rolled out on 22nd of this month. I have wrote about it 4 days before it went live. These updates sometimes takes time to come in to the effect worldwide and you should be seeing changes now if Google Panda 2.0 affected your web site.
Personally for me I’m seeing a slight traffic drop after 25th of this month and it can be related to this update. Google is normally not announcing about their constant updates to the masses but this time Matt Cutts announced about the update early and as soon as it rolled out. Nice to see Google is actually willing to inform webmasters about their changes because in past these updates happened without informing anyone and we couldn’t ever know what caused our traffic to drop.

Do you remember the webmaster outrage happened after the Google Panda update which was rolled out April 24th last year? Until now Google has been rolling out lots of small incremental updates to the search algorithm, beating bad web sites to the ground and also affecting some percentage of genuine web sites too. If you have a spammy link profile you probably should be already affected by these updates. I have wrote earlier about how you can disavow spam links pointing at your web site. But that’s just a part of the equation.
