Samsung has announced the next generation of Galaxy S will be unveiled on March 14. This time they are going to launch it on United States rather than launching it on Europe like they did previously. Galaxy SIII launch was great and event and it kept the wow factor going thanks to software innovations like Smart Stay , S Beam etc.

Subject: Important Security Alert (Action Required)
You are receiving this email because you have opened a ticket with our support staff in the last 6 months. cPanel, Inc. has discovered that one of the servers we utilize in the technical support department has been compromised. While we do not know if your machine is affected, you should change your root level password if you are not already using ssh keys. If you are using an unprivileged account with “sudo” or “su” for root logins, we recommend you change the account password. Even if you are using ssh keys we still recommend rotating keys on a regular basis.
As we do not know the exact nature of this compromise we are asking for customers to take immediate action on their own servers. cPanel’s security team is continuing to investigate the nature of this security issue.
Nvidia just announced the Tegra 4i processor which got integrated LTE chip on processor SoC. This is really good news because we all know that having to run separate LTE chip increases the power consumption and decreases all over efficiency because of many constraints by having to transport all the communication data in and out from the SoC. When Nvidia announced the original Tegra 4 which I covered here it also didn’t included a integrated LTE chip but they have detailed i500 soft modem which OEM’s can integrate (separate chip) to Tegra 4 to enable LTE functionality.
Tegra 4i comes in built with that i500 chip reducing the constrains of having to run the i500 outside of SoC. However the architecture of cores and graphics cores are different from the original Tegra 4 as the Tegra 4i is an Cortex R4 A9 processor unlike the A15 Tegra 4 sibling. And GPU cores on 4i count at 60 where as Tegra 4 has 72. Nvidia went with A9 because to reduce the power consumption and to reduce die size
When I was browsing through the interwebs, I just found this
Cool video right? Ultra Ever Dry is a amazing new product which can make any surface superhydrophobic ( repels water ) and Oleophobic ( well you probably heard this one, most new smartphone screens are oleophobic ).
This is a nano tech, outer coating which you can spray on almost any surface as they say on the above ad, Best thing is its cheap and commercially available for us to buy.( here and here ) Well but this is a advertisement, And they claims that Abrasion can effect its durability and its probably because this is just a spray coat and time will make it wear out.
This probably opens up big opportunities such as spraying this on windows of your car etc. But this is just a start and its exciting to see it is available for public consumption.
PlayStation 4 rumors are getting hot everyday as Sony announced that they got something new to share with us on February 20th. We arent even sure if they are talking about a new PlayStation or it might be a launch of new Dualshock controller. Sony’s CEO Kaz Hirai once told that Sony will release the next PlayStation after Microsoft announce the new Xbox.
“Why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better? – Kaz told the Times”
So to fulfill this statement Sony might not even announce the new PlayStation until Microsoft announces their new Xbox. So this whole story will be really interesting to follow up.
Blackberry has unveiled its newest Blackberry 10 platform and two all new phones namely the Blackberry Z10 and Blackberry Q10. This is the blackberry’s answer to the growing Android and iPhone market with total revamp from top to bottom. While Blackberry Q10 being the BB Bold like phone, the Blackberry Z10 gives you a nice stylish form factor. I personally love this white Z10 model because of its combination of white and black bezel.
LxAdmin Kloxo web hosting panel used to be the go-to free control panel among the community years ago. Now its more than 3 years since I published my guide on how you can install the kloxo control panel on your server. On those days kloxo was really popular because of its simple but yet premium looking interface and there wasn’t any big problems at all. And kloxo was the first control panel to feature both Apache and lighttpd and we were able to switch between the 2 programs with just a single mouse click. Those days I have even started a small proxy hosting venture and I have used the kloxo control panel not just because I wanted to take costs down, but it was a fine control panel and no one ever complained about it. And also I have hosted one of my biggest proxy sites on a small VPS running kloxo and I had no problems on it pushing 200GB traffic daily. But time made me busy with exams and I had to migrate to a shared hosting service and sell my hosting venture. And then I have moved to command line and cpanel for business production servers
After the original developer has died ( he hung himself because of depression after hackers exploited his product HyperVM software casuing thousands of VPS servers running on the platform to be wiped out ) Kloxo and HyperVM was abandoned for a while but later project has started again with new developers . I have covered that news on my blog. Again I started to recommend the kloxo control panel again for anyone who asked me about a free control panel and even wrote guides for it. But the interest about kloxo slowly faded away and kloxo failed to make a buzz thereafter.
But now I have decided to take a look again to see what has been changed and I was simply sad after seeing project is now almost abandoned state.
Samsung just announced its all new Exynos 5 Octa processor at CES 2013. Its the first processor design to employ the ARM’s “big.LITTLE” concept which uses 4, A15 cores and 4, A7 cores on the same die. This makes smartphones,tablets and even laptops built with this new processor to handle tasks with extreme speed without compromising the battery.
