    [PN] Future of file sharing sites!

    As the news of the crackdown on Megaupload.com hit the internet, it became very clear that we don't need laws such as the SOPA and PIPA to crackdown on piracy and illegal content on the internet. What started with Megaupload has had cascading effect with many major file hosting services acting...

    Geohot asks for donations, sets up a new blog!

    Agreed. There is little doubt that what he has done has opened ps3 to piracy. Even if one buys the otheros argument, you are free to address that issue legally. If you believe you have been wronged and have a good case, go to court and fight it and win the case (this, for the advertised feature...

    Kindle DX

    ^^ I know, I was looking for that functionality myself a couple of years back and trust me, DX is not the solution. Tiresome eyes on tablet anyday are better than zooming in and out on native pdf technical docs. Slu9WpNnFp8

    Kindle DX

    PDF's are actually still an issue even on the big screen. I suggest you read a bit on the Kindle DX right there on Amazon (comments) Yes it can read PDF's and big screen helps but its no rosy experience. You have to zoom in and out quite a bit which gets tiresome, the pics don't work well at...

    PDP gives away J&K parts to China, Pak in slide show

    The whole of Chinese strategy is to ensure high economic growth and instigate nationalistic feeling among the dominant class to perpetuate the rule of the communist government. Any actual military activity which can disrupt global economy will be counterproductive to China itself. A...

    PDP gives away J&K parts to China, Pak in slide show

    Which region is that? If you mean Aksai Chin, then you are wrong. People of that region have nothing to do with China. Infact, down south and west, all of Tibet would have nothing to do with China but for the forced movement and settlement of the Han Chinese, who themselves have now formed a...

    php code not working

    ^^ Was that pseudo code or actual code? If actual, try to stick to standards :P Stylesheets in header. And you really should sanitize your $_POST ;) Use the iframe method instead to embed. http://www.youtube.com/embed/mDfM0tk6Os0 So that would be <iframe title="YouTube video player"...

    Shocking Thread of a TE member on T BHP, being drugged

    If that person has pulled this stunt(putting drugs in drinks at someone else's house) so cleanly, he looks to be a professional thief. Its not the easiest of the things to do and with such panache. I highly doubt he would be dumb enough to leave an obvious trail of IP addresses that can be...

    Video Need DTH Suggestions

    1) It does if the rain is very heavy or there is a heavy cloud cover. Also depends on your normal signal strength. Make sure that you get the technician who comes to fit the DTH to set the dish properly so that the strength and quality are well above the normal preset bar. Irrespective of this...

    Cricket's easy money?

    Because of TV rights and ad spends. IPL has garnered enough TRP's and enough interest in these two years for ad spenders to pump in big money for new product launches and marketing around IPL time. Its akin to American superbowl now. There has been recession yes, but even in recession the...

    Cricket's easy money?

    To suggest that Shashi Tharoor has siphoned off some black money into IPL would not be correct. The most likely cause of his owning a stake by proxy is the "influence" he might have used to get Kochi into IPL. I am clueless what influence he used though. I have never been a fan for Tharoor...
