-inurl:(htmhtmlphp) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(wmamp3) "Nirvana"
Just substitute the term "Nirvana" for any band or singer you might be looking for, and your search will lead you to open indexes that contain downloadable music files.. try it to believe it. or on the other hand you could use sites like http://www.ironlab.org/projects/findmusic.php or http://www.goofile.be./

example: if you are looking for george orwell 1984

Jon Lech Johansen (a Prominent hacker) claims that he has "reverse engineered" the FairPlay system, meaning.. the code that prevents music downloaded from Apple's iTunes store being played on any portable player other than an iPod has been "cracked".
In the past Mr Johansen has distributed various program ( and their updated version) to bypass the Apple systems, ( eg.. QTFairUse in 2003 ) These programs were distributed on the web for free, but this time there is twist.
His company, DoubleTwist said that it planned to license the code to other digital music player manufacturers, ie., Mr Johansen and DoubleTwist plan to commercialise the technology.

Since the search can be hosted on either Google servers or your own, you can actually customize the look and feel of the search page, and embed Google Adsense and other advertisements
For bloggers, using Google Co-op may be a better choice than the built in search feature. A search engine can be created that searches just a single site, and Google search is generally better than search features included with blog software, and with the addition of Adsense this will generate a separate income stream as well.
Do post in your views on this new tool from Google...
The charts provide users with comprehensive coverage on hot topics and the chance for serendipitous discovery.

Mozilla Firefox 2 is here! It was just placed in the releases folder on the FTP so it is time for you to check it out, with Internet Explorer 7 just being released late last week we could expect stiff competition in the browser market in the days ahead. (I do not have any update on Netscapes' plan yet.. will try getting some info)
Firefox 2 is expected to be made officially available tomorrow ( 24th Oct) refer out post post on 21st Oct ( http://askwiki.blogspot.com
Check this link comparative review of IE 7 and Firefox 2.
How is this done ?? well an activeX plugin for internet explorer lets users send content from a web page to their mobile phone. You can send driving directions, your contact info, or event data.
Sounds cool.. ah
All he needs to do is go on to Blog Ping Page and then enter the URL or Feed URL of the site and Google Blog Search will update the content automatically. (this is only for bloggers who are not using the blogger.com service ) as it seems that Google Blog Search is automatically pinged by Blogger directly. I can say that because, I never pinged my blog and my posts were already showing up in the index of Google blog search.
Friends, ( who are using wordpress, or any other service) please validate me. If you have any other efficient method, please do post it in the cooments for fellow blogger ..
Probably inspired by Facebook’s success with moving away from an exclusive system, Google has opened the service to all, hoping there are a lot of people who might like what they see. To compliment this change it has also revised its logo.
Orkut has some new features, according to Dreamchaser, including an easy reply method, language restrictions (i.e. - people from languages you don’t understand can’t message/spam you), and moderator for communities.
My profile at orkut ( http://www.orkut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=20477098 )
1. Googlebot activity reports: This feature gives you a good sense the load Googlebot is putting on your server. It displays a graphical representation of pages crawled per day, number of kilobytes downloaded per day, and time spent downloading a page.
2. Crawl rate control: If you find Googlebot is hitting your site too often or you wish it came around more, this new feature can solve your problem. There are three options to choose from: slower, normal and faster. The "faster" option is only available under some circumstances
Google Image Labeler which produces very relevant tags for your images without needing to describe them yourself.
4. Number of URLs submitted: And last, you can now see the number of URLs submitted through sitemaps
Mozilla has also enhanced the popular tabbed browsing feature in 2.0 that Firefox introduced when it emerged two years ago as the first significant rival to IE in years, Beard adds. Tabs allow users to navigate more easily between multiple Web pages when browsing the Internet, and Microsoft added tabs to IE 7 after Firefox's success with the feature.
In Firefox 2.0, Mozilla has added a "close" button on its tabs, as well as new visual features to make the tabs appear more obvious to the user.
New usability features in Firefox 2.0 that differentiate it from IE 7 include one that will restore the browser to pages where the user was working if a sudden OS restart is required. "If your browser needs a restart or the OS asks you to reboot, losing all of those Web pages and content is pretty disruptive,"
Firefox 2.0 is offering two options for enabling this feature. One way is that, by default, the browser will give the user an option to restore his or her browser sessions if there is an unexpected shutdown; the other is an advanced option to set the browser so that it always restores the last five pages visited before a sudden reboot.

Amazon has newly released a Question & Answers site of their own called Askville. Currently in invite-only Beta, the site looks cleaner than Yahoo Answers, and as opposed to Google Answers, you don’t need to pay to ask questions. Activity on the site – like asking a question, or answering one – is rewarded with “quest coins” which can later on be spent in Questville (Questville didn’t open yet!).
Here is the screen shot .
Amazon’s doing a lot of sites unrelated to shopping (A9, and then there’s all their APIs), and this is one of those. As expected, you can use your existing Amazon account to log-in, and I’m curious to see how much of a community they’ll be able to assemble in the long run.
Friends if you have more information on Amazons future plans.. just mail me.
According to Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung, police and intelligence services could could infect users' computers with this Trojan horse program and listen to their VoIP conversations. Any such move, though, would be subject to judicial approval.
The encryption used by VoIP communications such as Skype is easier to circumvent if investigators have access to the computers used to send the data, SonntagsZeitung said.
The VoIP-intercepting Trojan horse was developed by network security company ERA IT Solutions. Antivirus and firewalls don't currently recognise the program, which will send VoIP data from a user's PC to an external server. If a computer is turned off while data is still being gathered, the computer will save the data and retransmit once it is turned back on.
The Trojan horse can also reportedly activate built-in microphones in notebooks, which then allow listeners to pick up what is being talked about in the vicinity. The Swiss Government kept the development of the software quiet to "avoid public discussion" of the issues. The project was led by the Swiss Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications.
The site automatically detects where a reader is located and serves up local, regional and national college news in a number of categories. Users can comment on and rate stories, top stories are highlighted in the sidebar
College Reader was created by three recent college grads in Michigan - Adam Long, Steve Richert and Carl Paulus. It’s got loads of AJAX - some of which could perform better and be better thought out
I love my RSS reader, and I know I could get all of my news through it, but I still stop by sites like OriginalSignal and TechMeme throughout the day.
On October 3rd, Nokia launched this new technology. Here's how they describe Wibree:
"Wibree radio technology complements other local connectivity technologies, consuming only a fraction of the power compared to other such radio technologies, enabling smaller and less costly implementations and being easy to integrate with Bluetooth solutions.
"Wibree is the first open technology offering connectivity between mobile devices or Personal Computers, and small, button cell battery power devices such as watches, wireless keyboards, toys and sports sensors. By extending the role mobile devices can play in consumers’ lives, this technology increases the growth potential in these market segments."
In terms of it gaining in the marketplace and replacing Bluetooth, well... Bluetooth definitely has some problems and limitations, including some security issues, where Wibree would have an advantage.
Nokia is a big company and with Wibree able to utilize the same radio and antenna components as Bluetooth, who knows, maybe we will see a Wibree world in the future
The feature set now includes:
1. Upload videos in almost any format—like from your video or digital camera (maximum file size is currently 100MB)
2. Tag and categorize your videos to make it easy for other people to find them
3. Watch original videos and browse for new ones at the same time
4. Set up your own personal RSS feeds for videos you’re interested in
5. Use your Windows Live Spaces profile with Soapbox on MSN Video
6. Embed a video on your Web site or blog
This information as well as the screen shot below is taken directly from LiveSide, there are no other sources at this point.
Also I feel its extremely odd that Microsoft is launching this under the MSN brand instead of live.com. All of their recent web services have been released under Live.com. The best way to ensure that this service gets immediate traction would be to link it directly to Live.com, as Myspace has done with its own video product.
Anyways those are my views.. post in your views...

You can now let collaborators invite other people. "The people whom you've invited can now add other collaborators to that spreadsheet. You can decide whether you want this capability turned on for each spreadsheet individually - the default for new spreadsheets is to allow collaborators to add other collaborators."
The next logical move would be to add a new web application for presentations and to integrate all these applications with Gmail, Google Calendar and Picasa Web, so they can share attachments, photos and documents. Some pieces of the puzzle are still missing, but Google can't deny they don't want to build Google Office.
Folders with name: CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5,
COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, & LPT9
cant be created using Windows Explorer or Command Prompt directly! ( Try this
out.. right click on your desktop and try creating folder named "con"it changes
back to "new Folder" )
This is prevented as XP terms these folders as SYSTEM Folder Names reserved only
for the Operating System.. But there is a backdoor..(this trick is to create
system folders on XP through command prompt )
Explanation: This would create a folder named "con" on your "C Drive"
Similarly to delete such folder:
Explanation: This would remove the folder named "con"!
Note: rd(Remove Directory) command is used with "/s" switch as otherwise it
would give error that "folder is not empty"!
On another hand...if you ever wondered how to create a folder with no
name...then try this:
Create a New Folder from Windows Explorer
Select rename & type: "ALT+255"(Use Numpad)..thats it!
ALT+255 stands for blank character in ASCII...so it still accepts your folder name!
2. ApnaTube.com - As the name suggests, this is a YouTube clone to the hilt. The site allows hosting of videos, so that’s a definite advantage over Infeedia. While the visual design of the site is quite pleasing to the eye, it needs improvement in terms of its usability. It seems to have been around for just a few days, but you can already find Google ads on the homepage.
3. MeraVideo.com - MeraVideo is a part of BrainGain Entertainment Private Ltd., a privately held Mumbai based Media Company. The mera video site is also a you tube clone with video uploadinga nd sharing facility. Though the site seems to give a poorer impression design wise compared to the earlier two video sites. The features are just to upload and share while unlike Apnatube this site does not have its logo on the video being viewed and shared but uses windows media player.
In their largest acquisition to date, Google has acquired YouTube for $1.65 billion in an all stock transaction. Both companies have approved the deal, which should officially close in the fourth quarter. YouTube"s 65 employees will remain with the company at YouTube"s San Bruno headquarters.(Details of the conference call is available at http://www.earningscast.com/google-youtube-conference-call/ )
Details are also emerging that Yahoo was in the bidding war until very close to the end. Google contextual advertising service will definitely receive a major boost as Adwords publishers now have much more real estate to advertise their services on.
2) Google''s future plans revolve around their dark fiber buying spree, which experts suspect is for building the world"s largest video server network. What does that mean? Dave Burstein, who writes the DSL Prime newsletter, says, [The] key idea is that Google intends to become the most important video carrier on the planet, and is developing the servers and fiber network to make that possible. As television shifts to the net, only Yahoo and perhaps British Telecom are in position to compete. The ABC"s and NBC"s of the world are outclassed.
3) YouTube is profitable, that"s not a fact, but HipMojo.com ran the math and it"s hard to dispute. We"ve known YouTube"s bandwidth bills were $1 million/month roughly 6-months ago, but they"ve never publicly commented on their revenues and whether they"re profitable or not. I suspect they are, but just haven"t brought light to that fact because then the TV networks (copyright holders) would likely start knocking down the doors with their lawyers.
4) YouTube is #1. They are the website people go to for watching online videos. Google wants that traffic (eyeballs) for their future plans, because Google Video hasn"t been able to unseat YouTube and likely never will.
