Google releases Chrome 28 with Blink browser engine

Google releases Chrome 28 with Blink browser engine

Google on Tuesday released Chrome 28, the first polished version of the browser to use the company’s home-grown “Blink” rendering engine. On Windows, the upgrade also sported Google’s new notification service that lets developers of Chrome apps and add-ons display messages and alerts outside the browser window.

The upgrade was the first since May 21, when Google shipped Chrome 27 and touted some minor performance improvements.

Google announced in April that it was dropping the open-source WebKit browser engine — at the time also used only by Apple’s Safari — and was instead launching Blink, a WebKit variant, to power Chrome. Since then, Opera Software’s Opera has also adopted WebKit as an interim step before it eventually moves to Blink.

Google cited difficulties in adapting WebKit to Chrome, and in the first weeks after the announcement, stripped copious amounts of unnecessary-for-Chrome code from the fork that became Blink. Previously, only the rougher “Dev” and “Beta” builds of Chrome relied on the Blink engine. Users can verify that Blink is present by typing chrome://version/ in the Chrome address-search bar, dubbed the “Omnibox.”

Also included in Chrome 28 is new support for more sophisticated notifications that appear outside the browser pane and display even when the browser’s not running. “Packaged apps” — ber-Web apps that look and behave like “native” code written specifically for the underlying OS — and add-ons can push brief messages and alerts to Chrome users after their developers have enabled the feature.

Only the Windows version of Chrome 28 currently supports these next-generation notifications, but Google promised that the feature would soon make its way to OS X and Linux. On a Mac, Chrome notifications are not integrated with OS X Mountain Lion’s Notification Center.

Along with the debut of Blink and notifications, Chrome 28 contained patches for 15 security vulnerabilities, one of them rated “critical,” Google’s most serious threat ranking. According to Google’s terse security advisory, that flaw was a memory management bug — dubbed a “use-after-free” vulnerability — in the browser’s network sockets code.

But while Colin Payne, who reported the bug, received an impressive reward of $6,267.40, another researcher was handed triple that. Andrey Labunets was paid a record $21,500 for filing several vulnerability reports, including two in the Google synchronization service and an unknown number of others that Google said were “…since-fixed server-side bugs.”

That last phrase and the amount paid were clues that Labunets discovered one or more flaws in a core Google service. In April, Google boosted bounties for vulnerability reports in its core websites, services and online apps, resetting the top reward to $20,000 for remote code executable bugs, those that attackers could use to slip malicious code onto a server or into an app or site.

Labunets is no stranger to large bug bounties. Earlier this year, after reporting a string of weaknesses in Facebook’s authentication protocol, Labunets was awarded $9,500 by the social networking giant.

Altogether, Google this week paid bounties totaling $34,901 to six researchers, including Payne and Labunets, for reporting eight different bugs. Through Tuesday, the Mountain View, Calif., company has awarded nearly $250,000 thus far this year in bounties or hacking contest prizes.

Users can download Chrome 28 from Google’s website. Active users can simply let the automatic updater retrieve the new version.

ASUS’ RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

ASUS’ RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

These days, it’s fairly easy to find a PCI Express-based SSD to transform one’s desktop — Angelbird, Fusion-io, Micron and ASUS will sell you one, just to name a few. That said, the last of those three has just revealed a new entrant that will certainly catch the eye of many, as the RAIDR Express claims to be the first PCI-e SSD to be compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS. The so-called DuoMode feature is joined by 240GB of storage space, sequential 830MB/s read and 810MB/s write speeds and a reported 620,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF).

You’ll also find the latest LSI SandForce controller, Toshiba-built 19nm MLC flash, and 100,000 4K read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS). The bundled RAMDisk utility allows users to dedicate up to 80 percent of a computer’s available RAM for use as a high-speed virtual drive, and if you needed any further proof that it’s fast, look no further than in the video after the break. Curiously, ASUS isn’t talking pricing just yet, but it should start shipping in the very near future.

Residual Income …Only If You STAY In the Game!

Residual Income …Only If You STAY In the Game!

Freedom is a scent, like the top of a new born baby’s head. [Bono, U2]

This is so very true when you think about the whole Internet marketing scenario. Its a common concept that people think of financial freedom by owning their own successful business. This may be true but I dont agree with it 100%.

For example, Lets say, you owned a successful IT business 8-10 years ago and it was extremely successful. All of a sudden because of the global downturn, it bottomed out and you started to lose money as quick as you were making it. Are you financially secure now with residual income? I dont think so

Internet marketing is so very different in the respect that if you stay in the game long enough to build a successful down line, you will eventually be financially secure.Ok you may say that a downturn may hit internet marketing also but if you research the market, Internet marketing has boomed since it has evolved. It is here to stay. Once you get the scent that residual income awaits, you will start to devote all your energy and more into achieving your dream.

Internet marketing gives you financial freedom that no other company type can offer. You could go on vacation for 2 months, return and see that your commissions might have grown in the meantime!. Financial freedom for me is earning while on vacation, while sleeping, while in hospital, 24 hours around the clock.

The one drawback that you probably have guessed is positioning yourself to earn this residual income. This definitely is the hardest part and where the biggest percentage of opt-out’s occur. What you have to understand is that the payoff for the patience and time you put in initially to get your business off the ground is huge. There have been a lot of instances where an affiliate opted out in the initial stages because he did not think the progress was where it should have been.

It transpired thereafter, that if he had remained in the game, since he had sponsored energetic affiliates, he would have earned huge residual income from their efforts. He solely needed to maintain his position. I wonder does he have trouble sleeping at night! It may take 6-12 months before you register a profit in your business, but freedom awaits you if you stay committed. Dont end up being the guy that decided to opt out and has regretted it ever since. I reiterate, residual income awaits you only by staying in the game.

Vascular Dementia One Of Elderly Health Care Issue

Vascular Dementia One Of Elderly Health Care Issue

Most people will not find it hard tvery aging person will suffer from the same diseases as witnessed in the disco associate dementia with old age though recent research shows that not eoveries of other old age illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease as well as Alzheimer’s disease.
However, there no doubts the fact that vascular dementia is a pressing elderly health care issue that deserves to be taken a lot more seriously than is the case at present. The sad truth is that vascular dementia is the second most noticed elderly health care issue.
Insufficient Oxygen Supply to the Brain
Vascular dementia occurs when a person’s brain does not get sufficient oxygen over a prolonged period of time and the reason for this deprivation of oxygen is vascular by nature. Normally, blood carries sufficient oxygen to all parts of the human body.
The brain in particular is a vital part of the human body and during vascular dementia there is interference in the supply of oxygen to the brain resulting in possible mini strokes that might even occur without being realized by the affected person.
The main reason why an elderly health care issue such as vascular dementia merits serious consideration is that if its effects are allowed to accumulate it could result in further elderly health care issues such as dementia that resembles Alzheimer’s disease.
The sad part about vascular dementia is that it is most likely to affect people once they have reached their sixtieth birthday though this does not in any way imply that this elderly health care issue is only a concern after a person reaches sixty years of age because as mentioned the disease occurs without being noticed even at a younger age.
Some of the causes for this elderly health care issue occurring include lifestyles that a person has adopted in their early years of life and among these lifestyles you can include smoking and obesity as well as lack of sufficient exercise as too elevated cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
Therefore, if you have neglected taking good care of you during your early years, then in later years you will be at risk of suffering from an elderly health care issue such as vascular dementia. The American population too is fast aging which in turn is giving rise to finding suitable health care for the aged.
Home health care elderly is a matter that needs to be addressed well before an elderly person becomes in need of such care. The fact of the matter is that once a person becomes old enough to need home health care they will be in a sorry state and will not know where to start, especially when it concerns hiring private help. It is therefore a good idea to address this need well before the occasion arises.

Monoprice 27″ IPS-G Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560×1440

Monoprice 27″ IPS-G Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560×1440

Monoprice is among the more interesting companies you probably haven’t heard of. Started out of an apartment around a decade ago, the company initially sold everything at a single price, hence the name. That business model may have worked when the product line was mostly cables and connectors, but the company now offers a diverse array that includes monitors (more in a moment), home theatre screens, graphics tablets, headphones, apocket-size pico projector, an action cam, even electric guitars – and, yes, cables, connectors and accessories as well. It’s a lineup with no seeming rhyme or reason, other than quality products at bargain prices.

And that actually is the rhyme and reason behind Monoprice products. According to CEO Ajay Kumar, the company looks for categories where vastly overpriced products predominate. That gives Monoprice room to create and sell products at dramatically lower price points, while still maintaining strong profit margins.
“We are in the right place at the right time with our business model,” says Kumar, who joined the company in July 2011. “We offer the same cable or accessory as national retail brands, but for much less cost. However, we are not cutting corners as we employ high-quality manufacturing partners who work with our specs. Our markup is much lower and we pass those savings to our customers. Monoprice brings them a value proposition they can’t find anywhere else.”
And that leads us to the Monoprice 27″ IPS-G Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560×1440 Product ID 10489, which is what you came here for. I’ve been rocking this 16:9 (widescreen) monitor for over a month now and it’s stunning. Let’s take a look at the stats and find out why.
Start with the size, 27″. You don’t have to join Grindr to know that size matters. A larger screen means that you can work easily with more windows at once. It makes copying files and editing text and spreadsheets easier and obviously makes working with pictures and video more convenient, if that’s your thing. And if you’re a gamer, a large screen is essential. Ditto if you are, for instance, a daytrader or a designer.
Hand in glove with size is resolution. “WQHD” may sound like a Minneapolis TV station, but it means 2560 x 1440 pixels. Some 27″ screens max out at regular Full HD, which is 1920 x 1080. The higher resolution of the Monoprice unit means that more detail is visible, if your PC’s graphics card supports it. If not, you’ll be limited to 1920 x 1080 (or less, if your PC is really old). A large screen with high resolution allows you to display more information. It makes it easier to do more with your PC.
Since we’re talking graphics cards, another nice feature of the Monoprice 10489 is that it supports four different types of interface: HDMI 1.4, DVI, VGA and DisplayPort 1.2. That means that the monitor is bound to work with your existing graphics card. The package includes VGA and DVI-D cables, but these are standard length (around 6′). Because of the size of the monitor, it’s much easier to use longer cables – you can plug in the cable before maneuvering the monitor into place on your desk. Monoprice has you covered with available 15′ HDMI, DVI-D, VGA and DisplayPort 1.2 cables. Choose the one you need.
The monitor uses LEDs for the backlighting, rather than cold cathode fluorescent tubes. The benefit: more even illumination. And it uses In Plane Switching (IPS) display technology, which means you get a wide viewing angle with no color shift even when the screen is viewed at an extreme angle. Viewing angle is stated as 178 degree in both the horizontal and vertical planes.
Covering that screen is a glossy glass laminate with an antiglare coating. The antiglare coating is not a matte finish; the screen is glossy, but the antiglare coating reduces the intensity of any glare from reflected light. As with any monitor, you’ll want to position it so that ambient light is not reflected directly back at you. I’ve found the screen easy to use.
The monitor comes with a removable stand and has a 100×100 VESA mounting size for use with desk or wall mounts. The stand (which is completely removable) has rotate and tilt adjustments. It doesn’t have height adjustment, a feature found on a small number of other monitors.
The bezel is black plastic and is relatively thick. The OSD controls (brightness, etc.) are easy to reach. The connectors are in the usual awkward place for monitors, along the bottom bezel.
Several other stats are key. One is dead pixels. The monitor has over 10 million subpixels (2560 x 1440 pixels x 3 colors per pixel). If any one of those subpixels is stuck in the on or off position, you get a dead pixel – a spot that is always dark, or always white, red, reddish, green, greenish, etc. Unfortunately, dead pixels are a potential fact of life on all monitors – but Monoprice tells me they offer a zero dead pixel guarantee for a year. It’s an unusually strong guarantee, since other manufacturers often will only guarantee that the dead pixel count won’t exceed 5 or 10. The unit I received had no dead pixels.
Also important are brightness and contrast. Monoprice advertises a brightness rating of 440 cd/m², which it says is more than 15% brighter than most comparable displays, and a maximum dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000:1.
The display is indeed bright, but this is the one area where I noted a difficulty with this product – the screen is a bit too bright, even with the brightness adjustment turned down to the lowest setting. As a result, black areas on screen are rendered slightly grayish. For most people and most applications, this won’t be a problem – and it’s a phenomenon that’s scarcely unique to the Monoprice unit – but graphic designers will want to carefully compare this screen with others to see what meets their needs.
The panel features 109 pixels per inch, which translates to a 0.2331mm pixel size. The unit also includes builtin stereo speakers, which can be fed via a stereo audio cable, as well as audio from the HDMI connection. As with most builtin monitor speakers, the sound was tinny and unimpressive, so I don’t recommend using them. Buy a pair of standalone computer speakers instead.
Another stat is response time, which the company says is 6 milliseconds (gray-to-gray response time). That’s a measurement of how long it takes the monitor to change the image when the PC tells it to, and is an issue for almost no one except gamers.
Bottom line: if you’re looking for a high-quality 27″ WQHD IPS LED monitor at a great price, pick up the Monoprice 10489.
