MITx online learning tools to be freely available

MIT launches online learning initiative

'MITx' will offer courses online and make online learning tools freely available.

MIT announced the launch of an online learning initiative internally called “MITx.” MITx will offer a portfolio of MIT courses through an online interactive learning platform that will:
  • organize and present course material to enable students to learn at their own pace
  • feature interactivity, online laboratories and student-to-student communication
  • allow for the individual assessment of any student’s work and allow students who demonstrate their mastery of subjects to earn a certificate of completion awarded by MITx
  • operate on an open-source, scalable software infrastructure in order to make it continuously improving and readily available to other educational institutions.
MIT expects that this learning platform will enhance the educational experience of its on-campus students, offering them online tools that supplement and enrich their classroom and laboratory experiences. MIT also expects that MITx will eventually host a virtual community of millions of learners around the world.

So to be educated is up to you now!

We are way way off our usual topics here but;

I'm huge fan of motorsport and i'm happy to say that, Kimi Räikkonen is back in business!!!
Kimi made two year deal with Lotus Renault F1 team.

2007 f1 champ Kimi "iceman" Räikkönen stepped out of formula one world in 2009. After that he competed in WRC for two years and made couple strong NASCAR races.

After those NASCAR events his appetite for F1 get stronger.

With this deal Lotus Renault will really increase their server traffic!

Good luck KIMI!

GoDaddy indycar challenge ends in tragedy.

Dan Wheldon dies in Las Vegas Indy car challenge.

Go Daddy statement on Dan Wheldon's Passing;

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dan Wheldon's family and friends on this sad, sad day. All of us in the IndyCar family feel an unexplainable sense of loss. Not just for the sport, but for all who knew Dan Wheldon. Dan was a family man, a father, a husband, a son and a brother. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was also a competitor and a colleague ... our deepest condolences go out to all who knew Dan."

- Bob Parsons Go Daddy CEO & Founder


My thoughts:

I'm a big lover of motor sports and these accident news are most unwanted. Let Dan Wheldon rest in peace.

What really makes me sick is that ABC shows these high tech low motion clips about this accident, LIVE!?.
There used to be these fatal accident sites in internet if you liked to see someone to die in car racing. Now they make it in live tv and chew it all over again like some juicy news clip. Shame on you ABC!!! Shame on you! Is this the direction we are heading? Dont say that spectators wanted it!

F-Secure, thanks and criticizes Google

Steve Jobs' link in Google search engine was a smart move. Spam filtering is however a still big job to do F- Secure said.

Googles search engine front page linked directly to Apple's website and Steve Jobs obituaryIt was not only respectful, but also did make sense,  F-Secure thanks.

Network criminals do not leave untouched  Apple's lead character's death in their moves. Direct link to the official data will certainly prevented many searches, which could have lead to fraudulent websites.

At the same time, the F-Secure criticizes Google. It is good to eliminate the dangerous search result web pages, but has recently been in trouble with spam sites and advertising-related scam pages.

One such scammer page was Stevejobsfuneral.comIt appeared in the first results page, when people wrote, "Steve Jobs funeral" to search engine.

This page, 
collected e-mail addresses from visitors to supposedly draw to win a MacBookPage also linked to the online store, where Apple products were advertised for people who want to keep in mind besides Jobs.

Fair Warning Inc Makes Van Halen Fan A Much Wealthier Man Brett Norton evidently loves Van Halen.  So much that he runs a forum called centered around the band and its fans.  He also purchased, the name of Van Halen’s 4th studio album originally release in 1981 as a testament to his fandom. Brett was nice enough to let some board members use the domain as an email address but on August 21st he made this announcement on his forum:

Well I got a crazy offer to buy the domain name the other day, and I sold it. I actually think I could have gotten more in hindsight, but was so shocked by the offer to begin with, I took it. So I have to transfer over the account to Network Solutions within the next week or so.
Obviously that means that if you have use that as your main email address, you need to transfer over to something else and soon, because I don’t know how quick they’ll change it, it’s out of my hands at that point.

I will post when I have approved the transfer, so at least you’ll have a little time, but my thinking is it could be early this week. So please make plans to do that.
Any questions let me know. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Microsoft kills Google Chrome with bad malware signature

By Computerworld - Microsoft scrambled earlier today to revise an antivirus definition file that deleted Google's Chrome browser from users' PCs.
"Wow, that's certainly one way to win the browser war," said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Security.

Storms was referring to the battle between Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) and rivals, including Chrome, for usage share. According to data from one Web metrics firm, Chrome will pass Mozilla's Firefox as the second-most-popular browser by the end of this year, pitting Google and Microsoft for the top spot.
Chrome users began reporting the specious detection of the browser early Friday in a quickly-growing thread on a Google support forum.
"This morning, after I started up the PC, a Windows Security box popped up and said I had a Security Problem that needed to be removed," said someone identified as "chasd harris" in the first message of the thread. "I clicked the Details button and saw that it was 'PWS:Win32/Zbot.' I clicked the Remove button and restarted my PC. Now I do not have Chrome. It has been removed or uninstalled."
Scores of others reported the same behavior on their Windows PCs running Microsoft's Security Essentials -- its free, consumer-grade antivirus software -- as well as Forefront, the antivirus product designed for enterprises.
Microsoft issued a corrected definition file around 10 a.m. PT Friday, about three hours after users began reporting the false positive on Google's support forum.
Several bloggers, including ZDNet's Ryan Naraine and Ed Bott, reported the problem earlier today.
Microsoft has acknowledged the gaffe, and said approximately 3,000 users were affected.
"An incorrect detection for PWS:Win32/Zbot was identified and as a result, Google Chrome was inadvertently blocked and in some cases removed from customers PCs," Microsoft said in a statement posted to the Facebook pageof its malware research center. "We have already fixed the issue..., but approximately 3,000 customers were impacted."
Microsoft told users to update Security Essentials with the new definition file, then reinstall Chrome.
For its part, Google slapped a red warning banner at the top of its Google support pages that read, "Alert: Google Chrome has been incorrectly marked as malware by Microsoft security software."
Chrome was fingered as Zbot, better known as Zeus, a widespread botnet Trojan that focuses on stealing online banking credentials, which criminals then use to vacuum money from accounts.
Microsoft isn't the only security software maker to have screwed up in this way: All three of the world's largest antivirus companies -- Symantec, McAfee and Trend Micro -- have issued defective definitions in the past. In some cases, those mistakes have wreaked much more havoc.
In April 2010, for example, a McAfee antivirus update crippled an unknown number of corporate PCs worldwide when it quarantined a crucial Windows XP system file.
Some users who had seen Chrome vanish when they accepted Security Essentials' advice and let the software delete "chrome.exe," said that their bookmarks had also been eliminated, and that they were not restored after reinstalling Chrome.
Others, however, said that their bookmarks had not been affected.
Computerworld replicated Security Essentials' error by manually deleting chrome.exe, but had trouble reinstalling Chrome in Windows 7 using IE to download Google's browser. Only after uninstalling the remainder of Chrome, then using Firefox to download and save the Chrome setup file wasComputerworld able to restore Google's browser.
In that test, Chrome's bookmarks were reinstated.
Microsoft did not immediately reply to questions about whether the Security Essentials' snafu permanently eradicated Chrome bookmarks, as some users attested.

Motorola gets 7 years after launch, in time for Droid RAZR

Seven years after Motorola launched the Motorola RAZR, called by some the ”iPod of Mobile Phones”, it has secured the rights to the domain name, through Corporation Service Company (CSC), a company that specializes in corporate identity protection, says
While the RAZR is one of Motorola’s brands, the timing of the acquisition could continue to strengthen rumors that Motorola is planning to combine two of its most recognizable brands into a new device called the “Droid RAZR“.
It doesn’t appear Motorola used legal means to acquire the domain, as no cases are found in the online databases of the National Arbitration Forum or WIPO.  However, it’s possible lawyers for Motorola sent the owner a cease-and-desist letter.
It’s also very possible that Motorola opened up its wallet and paid the previous owner a large sum of money to get the name quickly.  I’ve reached out to the previous owner of for more details, and will update this post if I hear back. was only recently registered in mid September, the same day rumors began to surface of a “Droid RAZR” smartphone.  However, Motorola doesn’t appear to be the owner.
