Google Chrome to be pre-installed on PCs in 2009?

Google is reportedly thinking about cutting deals with PC makers to have its Chrome browser pre-installed on new computers, a move that could position the Internet giant to not only boost its presence in search but also put some of its branded apps - Gmail, Google Docs, Google Reader and others - in front of new users.According to a report in The Times, Google will likely start working those deals after it pulls the "beta" label from Chrome in early 2009.

10 top Vista tweaks, part 2

As I noted in the first installment of this series, some of my favorite productivity-enhancing techniques don’t involve custom code or registry edits. Instead, they involve learning how the basic building blocks of Windows work, and then rearranging those components to cut steps out of the tasks you perform most often. In today’s installment of this two-part series, I share some of my favorite tweaks for getting maximum mileage out of Windows Search. I also explain the inner workings of volume shadow copies and how you can make better use of these automatic backups with System Restore and the Previous Versions feature. I show how to get quick access to your local and network data files by combining shortcuts in a single, easy-to-reach location, and I explain why hybrid sleep should be the default on every desktop PC.

Automated recognition of online images

An international team of computer scientists has developed a new image-recognition software. They found that 256 to 1,024 bits of data were enough to identify the subject of an image. The researchers said this 'could lead to great advances in the automated identification of online images and, ultimately, provide a basis for computers to see like humans do.' As an example, they've stored about 13 million images picked on the Web and stored them in a searchable database of just 600 megabytes. The researchers added that using such small amounts of data per image makes it possible to search for similar pictures through millions of images on your PC in less than a second. But read more...
