Google will warn you, if you are being targeted by a state sponsored hacking

Google will warn users from a state sponsored cyber attack Google on wednesday that it has added a feature to warn users who accounts it believes are target of “state-sponsored attacks,”. Google did not name any particular government, but considering its stand off  with Chinese government after a series of cyber attacks in 2012 on this internet giant in which high profile Gmail accounts ranging from human rights activists of China, Dalai Lama, American and Indian Defense officials were targeted. China refused to take the blame and it did not co-operate in the investigations of the hacking attacks which was publicly appealed by US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Chinese military  is said to be leader in cyber warfare research according to western security experts. It is not clear whether Google will warn users of  Iran, where recently similar US sponsored cyber...

Chinese make infinite storage Hard drive, Which is damn cheap too !!

Chinese make infinite storage Hard drive, Which is damn cheap too !!

Chinese made infinite HDD This story is from a person working at a hard-drive repair center in a Russian town, located near the chinese border.  This person has got a broken 500Gb USB-drive for repair from a guy who had bought in a chinese store across the river, for  insanely low price. But the drive was not working: if you, say , save a movie onto the drive, playing the saved movie back resulted in replaying just the last 5 minutes of the film. The technician’s were in shock of their life time They opened up the drive right before the astonished customer’s eyes and they saw what you see on the left. It was a 128MB flash drive, working in a ‘looped’ mode – when it runs out of space, it starts overwriting from the beginning.  Those at the service center are still trying to figure out how did the chinese do that.  Because the drive reports correct file sizes and disk-capacity and the looped-overwriting does not touch the...

China may put up a major military offensive to grab lands, says report

China may put up a major military offensive to grab lands, says report

India vs China is the biggest test of the century. Pic courtesy:The Economist According to the latest report by an independent group of Indian analysts, China may resort to territorial grabs through a “major military offensive“ especially in Arunachal Pradesh or Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir and India should respond with “a strategy of quid pro quo“. “Our frontiers with China have been mostly stable for some years now. However, China could assert its territorial claims (especially in the Arunachal sector or Ladakh) by the use of force,” says the report that seeks to outline a foreign and strategic policy for India in the 21st century. “There is the possibility that China might resort to territorial grabs. The most likely areas for such bite-sized operations are those parts of the Line of Actual Control where both sides have different notions of where the LAC actually runs. These places are known”,says the report. The report titled ‘Non-Alignment 2.0: A Foreign and Strategic Policy for the 21st century‘, was unvieled on Tuesday...

China launches the rival for the GPS-Beidou

China launches the rival for the GPS-Beidou

China has launched the Beidou Global Positioning Satellite system and has started providing location services for mainland china and nearby territories. China has 10 satellites for this purpose which it started launching in 2003. This system will rival US GPS and reduce china’s dependency on it. This is similar to individual global positioning systems like Galileo by Europe, GLONASS by Russia and IRNSS (Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System) by India. China plans to have 35 total satellites in 2020 which will provide total coverage of the whole world. The chinese system is meant to offer better precision with accuracy of 33feet (10meters) while GPS  offers around 66 feet (20 meters). It will also be able to record speed with 0.2-meter a second accuracy and sync clocks to 0.02 millionths of a second a necessity for guiding missiles and other weapons. So the main purpose of countries rushing for independent satellite systems are not to provide its citizens with a car navigation systems but to have a fool proof system for their defense navigation systems. ...
