Why people still use Blackberry?

It's the smartphone everyone owns -- and no one seems to like.
Whenever we buy a phone we always consider the looks but Blackberrys aren't much good lookiing then why do people buy them!

Peek into any executive conference room in America, and you're bound to see one -- or a dozen -- of these anachronistic smartphones: BlackBerrys, their keys clicking like rain on a tin roof. Those red lights flashing, training their owners to pick them up on a second's notice: An e-mail! A BBM! Answer me!
To owners of Android-based phones and the iPhone, particularly in the U.S., the BlackBerry is starting to look more than a little too old-school. These phones don't really run apps. They don't store much music. Their screens, in general, are much smaller than those of smartphone competitors, meaning it's difficult or impossible to browse the Web comfortably or watch online video.
But here's the kicker: Despite the fact that the BlackBerry isn't hip, high-tech or cheaper than its main competitors, the phones are still the most popular (or at least the most common) in the U.S. market, and they're growing internationally.
So why do so many people still tolerate these phones?
It turns out, according to a handful of interviews with BlackBerry users, there are three basic reasons: People are addicted to the click-clacking keyboard; they love the blinking red light on the top, which alerts users to new messages; and many just happen to have the phone because it's required for work.

The click-clacking keyboard
Ask a BlackBerry user what they like about their phone, and they're bound to mention the keyboard. Ask them why that keyboard is so great, and they'll go into sensual detail about the click of the keys, how the buttons are raised just so and how the "shift" key -- oh, the shift key! -- is just as easy to use as those on a full-size computer keyboard.
"The keyboard is definitely a hook for RIM, and it's interesting to see that the marketplace, in general, has conceded it to RIM," said Kevin Michaluk, founder of the BlackBerry fan website "Everyone sees the iPhone, and they think apps. And I think everyone sees a phone with a keyboard, and they think BlackBerry, whether it is or isn't."
This comes at a time when most smartphones -- including the iPhone -- are moving toward touch-screen-only interfaces, where users tap on glass to type instead of pecking away at tactile keys.
The details of how the BlackBerry keyboard feels are what make it addictive, said Nan Palmero, a writer for another fan site,
"They really go to great lengths to raise plastic in certain ways on the keys," he said of the tactile keyboard's design. "They kind of describe it as guitar frets: Your hand naturally knows where to go and where to be."
Palmero said he can type up to 40 words per minute on his phone. Michaluk said he can hit 65. Neither has to look at the keyboard.
Kevin Kovanich, a 23-year-old BlackBerry user in Chicago, Illinois, said he loves that he can still "rock the keyboard" even though his thumbs are "larger than average."
"It is really nice how far the buttons stick up -- and you can really feel that click," he said. "It doesn't feel like you're making any mistakes ... no matter how big your fingers are."

That red light
On top of every BlackBerry, there's a little sliver of a red light, and it blinks at you when a new message or call comes in.
People get seriously addicted to that light, Michaluk said.
"You put a blinking red light on a device, and when that light blinks, you jump," he said. "It's Pavlovian training, right? For me, really, it's my connection to my people. And second, it's my connection to the world in terms of news and everything."
He added: "It's one of those things that always calls you back to your BlackBerry."
Of course, other phones have ways of alerting people to new messages, too, but none has the same feel as that BlackBerry light, users said.

Because it's businessy
The BlackBerry is the get-things-done phone.
It's not designed to run flashy applications, for playing games or for uploading pictures to Facebook and Twitter. It started out a business-minded device, and RIM has continued to market it as a business-friendly device, although recent ads have pitched it as a leisure phone for young multitaskers as well.
Part of the allure is that the BlackBerry is known for being secure. It encrypts messages, which makes business owners more comfortable giving the phones to their employees, who may share sensitive documents and e-mails over the phones.
This issue came into focus this week as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia threatened to stop BlackBerry service for this very reason: because they wanted to get inside private messages on the phones and couldn't.
Other smartphone operating systems,including iOS 4 from Apple, are trying to cater more to privacy-minded business clients, but overall they've been more focused on the consumer experience.
That image can work in BlackBerry's favor, writes Callie Schweitzer on a blog called Neon Tommy. She says the phone has a "mullet effect" in that it's "business in the front, party in the back."
"See someone typing away furiously on a Blackberry? They're probably sending a top-secret e-mail," she writes. "See someone intently focused on an iPhone? They're probably playing with the Bubblewrap or Lightsaber Unleashed apps. Regardless of what a Blackberry user is really doing, the phone itself just seems so much more straight-laced and serious than the iPhone."
Businesspeople also say BlackBerrys are just good for productivity.
Partly it's the keyboard. Partly is a range of shortcuts. But this no-frills phone has hooked many people in the bushiness world.
That includes Michaluk, who said he was given his first BlackBerry phone -- he called it "old blue" -- from an employer several years ago.
He's been hooked since.
"That thing was just a tank; it was ugly; it had that low-res, almost monochrome display. And that thing -- I just loved [it]," he said.


Graphics cards becoming the greatest password cracking tool

Graphics cards aren't that smart. But they are good at doing the same thing over and over again. This, researchers reckon, makes them good at 'brute force' password attacks, in which, if one password doesn't hack it, another is tried. Using a decent graphics card, the number of attempts can ratchet up into the billions, depending on how determined the hacker is to bust in, researchers have warned.

Boffins at the Georgia Tech Research Institute say that seven-character passwords are becoming "hopelessly inadequate", mainly because graphics cards are so good at brute-force attacks.

 "We've been using a commonly-available graphics processor to test the integrity of typical passwords," said Richard Boyd, senior researcher on the Georgia Tech team "Right now we can confidently say that a seven-character password is hopelessly inadequate - and as GPU power continues to go up every year, the threat will increase."

Higher-end, parallel processing GPUs operate at nearly two teraflops, processing trillion floating-point operations per second, making seven-character passwords useless.
The boffins say passwords should these day contain at leaset 12 characters, to be on the safe side. A combination of upper an lower-case letters, along with the odd number and a few symbols chucked in, add to the complexity of course.

Scanning mobile phones viruses from PC?

Wouldn't it be more feasible and hassle free, if we could scan for viruses from the PC anti-virus software?

PC2Mobile scan does just the same. It is a new technology from Quick Heal which will come handy in allowing users to scan for mobile viruses but without installing an anti-virus on the cell phone itself. The software is installed on the PC and the cell phone is connected to the PC via USB cable or bluetooth connection.

PC2Mobile scan features virus detection on (nearly) all mobile platforms (such as Symbian OS, Windows Mobile OS and other Linux based mobile OS). It also supports proprietary mobile firmwares, making it the only single product that supports virus scanning for variety of mobile phones available from vendors such as Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, Panasonic, Motorola, O2, IMate, HP, HTC and Siemens. The product boasts supporting over 550 cell phone models.

The software is a part of the main bundle i.e. Quick Heal Total Security 2010 suite (which is available for Rs. 2,000 for one year's subscription). A complete list of all the supported devices and other details about the product can be found here.

iStealer 6.0 Tutorial

Firstly, you will need to download iStealer 6.0. You can download iStealer 6.0 from the link below or if you do not trust download from wherever you want

Turn of your webguard or av before download because istealer is a hacking tool so your antivirus will block it.
Ive put some links but im not sure if they are infected or not working. I wont be responsible for the problems from downloads try any one of these

Register at
Once registered, make sure you verify your email. If you do not receive the email instantly check Junk/Spam, or wait a few minutes
Now, login using your username you registered with and password you registered with.

Once, you have logged in, click Create/delete MySQL database Now fill out the information as below:

Database Name: username_db
Simply create database your username will already be there,write any thing in the box then press Create Database.
You should get "The requested operation has been completed successfully. " and then get redirected back to the database page.

Username: username_user
Then press Create user, fill the box with anything you like and enter password for the user and click create user. You should get "The requested operation has been completed successfully. " and then get redirected back to the database page.

Now assign priviledges, Make sure that all the boxes are ticked after that click on assign priviledges.

Now open up index.php in the PHP Logger folder which is in the iStealer 6.0 download. Copy and paste the Datebase info you got above like shown in the picture:

Fill out your index.php like below:

$dbHost = "localhost"; // REMAINS LOCALHOST FOR EVERYONE
$dbUser = "username_db"; // (3)MySQL username
$dbPass = "Your password you filled in for user"; // (4)MySQL password
$dbDatabase = "username_db"; // (2)MySQL database name

$username = "username to login page"; // Login Username
$password = "password to login page"; // Login Password

$logspage = 100; // Number of logs per page

$dbHost will ALWAYS remain localhost.
$dbUser will be the username you signed up with and db (or whatever you named your database), so for example username_db
$dbPass is the password you used.
Use the image below if you are confused:


$username = "create username to login page"; // Login Username
$password = "create password to login page"; // Login Password

Simply fill them in as the login you want for the actual iStealer login page.

Once you have filled in YOUR database information in the setup, save the index.php file.

Now press File Manager at the top.
In file manager if you will find a index.php or index html file delete it

Once there press Upload and upload the index.php and style.css files.
Then click on index.php and Note the url .This address is important.

Now open the istealer which you downloaded.
In the url box type the address of the index.php file . If you dont know that address then click on index.php file you just uploaded in the file manager.It should be in this form http://account

open the login page [ http://account name.jµ] Log in with the username and password you put on these lines in the index.php:

$username = "username to login page"; // Login Username
$password = "password to login page"; // Login Password

Now press Test Url, if it comes up with "Works perfect!", then press Build and select where you want to save your built iStealer server.

Simplified Hacking Terms for Newbies

This is a little tut ive written for complete noobs who don't know anything about hacking, or for those who need help understanding the terminology.

Keylogger - A keylogger is a program, usualy ran secretly in the background that records what users type, then the typed output is usually sent via email or uploaded by the keylogger somewhere to the web in secret. These can be attached to other executables so you never even know you ran them in the first place, once you click it once it often is started at startup from their on.

Bot - A bot is a program that is ran secretly in the background of a victim's computer. The bot connects to an IRC channel usually where a Bot Herder(its creator) can use a number of commands to control these computers that are now it's under control. A zombie computer(a pc under control of a bot herder) can be manipulated in a number of ways. Some functions of a bot include stealing victims passwords, keylogging, ddosing a server to cause it to crash, turning on the webcam and being able to watch the zombie computer's users, visiting a website(to gain money + traffic for a bot herder), clicking ads, making ads appear randomly, destroying itself(the pc), and sending spam to email contacts.

Botnet - A bunch of bot's connected to a server (usually IRC or web) that can be controlled and manipulated by its owner.

RAT (Remote Administration Tool) - Sort of like a botnet in regards that you can gain acess to the victims computer and do stuff like look at their files, webcam, etc. Only this malware connects back to you, apposed to a server.

Crypter - A crypter is used to make well known hacker's viruses (such as keyloggers and botnets) undetectable by anti-virus software by changing the virus program signatures that anti virus programs have in their databases to make them easier to spread.

Binder - A binder is used to bind a virus(such as a keylogger,etc) to another program making it undetechtable and able to fool users into thinking its something else. (IE a victim will click an installPhotoshop.exe and it will install photoshop as well as your virus secretly.)

FUD - Term for fully undetectable virus. (made by either coding your own virus or by crypting and binding an existing virus) Use (uncheck distribute sample) to check if your virus is undetectable.

Database - Used by most websites to store things such as User names, Passwords, Email, etc of an entire website or community.

SQL Injection - A way of manipulating a website's forms as a way of retrieving it's databases. This can be used to find users and passwords as well as obtaining admin on a website in order to deface it.

XSS (Cross Site Scripting) - a type of computer security vulnerability typically found in web applications which allow code injection by malicious web users into the web pages viewed by other users. An exploited cross-site scripting vulnerability can be used by attackers to bypass access controls such as the same origin policy. Vulnerabilities of this kind have been exploited to craft powerful phishing attacks and browser exploits. (From Wikipedia)

Cookie Stealing/Spoofing - Used to fool a victim into clicking a link that will steal their cookies to websites which you can then use to have their privileges to various parts of a website or forum.

BruteForcer - Program used to crack passwords by trying every password/password list on various forms.

Hashes - How passwords are usually stored, this is a way of crypting a password so it is not plain text, harder passwords are very hard to crack but simple ones have often been cracked and can be found on online databases. Some common password hashes include MD5 and SHA.

Social Engineering - Tricking a victim into doing something you want them to do by disguising or enticing them into doing what you want.

Phishing - Creating a fake login page to a well known website (IE Facebook) and then fooling a victim into entering their information on the fake login page through social engineering.

More to come, hope this helps you understand some of the different types of hacking and its terms.

Windows7 Transformation pack for Ubuntu

Many user dont like user interface of ubuntu this is a windows7 transformation pack for would ubuntu look like windows 7 so you wont blame for ubuntu for having unfriendly interface.

This Package contains:
GDM theme*
Icons Theme*
GTK Theme
Gnomenu theme*
Panel Backgrounds*
Cursor theme

About the sounds, they can’t be installed, just you can replace the Ubuntu original sounds or configure you preferences sounds at System / Preferences /Sounds or copying at /usr/share/sounds (accessing as root) and save the folder there or replace the original sounds. (because of they have the same name).

Simplified Torrent Guide for newbies.

Ive been Facing with Readers having problems with torrents.
So here is Torrent Guide for newbies.

What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent (often abbreviated to 'BT') is a protocol that allows you to download files quickly and efficiently.
It is a peer to peer protocol, which means you download and upload to other people downloading the same file.
BitTorrent is often used for distribution of very large files, very popular files and files available for free, as it is a cheap, fast, efficient way to distribute files to users like you.

µTorrent is a BitTorrent client.
A 'client' in this case is a computer program that follows the rules of a protocol.
For example, HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is the protocol used to download web pages and other content - like this page - and your HTTP client (or browser) is the program you use to get those web pages.
Some popular browsers include Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.
Email , Direct Downloads Via File hosting and FTP rely on one computer Server hosting  the file and transmitting it to another connected computer. 

BitTorrent introduces a major difference  the hosting and the
downloading is spread out over many computers using a technology called   Peer-to-Peer .
can use BitTorrent to share or download any type of files  .exe, mp3, AVI, Jpeg, and Doc

Some Important Terms:

Torrent: Its is a file itself. The .torrent file is not the entire file the people who are sharing it. It is like a map which is used by the BitTorrent client to
assemble all the pieces together.  
BitTorrent client :It is a piece of software which takes the .torrent file, reads the information in it and
starts the download. 
Peer :A peer is any computer participating in the download and upload of a torrent file.
Seeder :A seed (or seeder) is anyone who is uploading copy of the file being shared
across the torrent network.
Leecher :A leech (or a leecher) is the person who does not have the complete file yet but
has joined the network to download it. A leecher becomes a seeder when he downloads the entire file and then shares it across the network.
Port : it is where your computer receives the communication signals from the outside network.
Share ratio: The ratio is the amount of data a user has uploaded divided by the amount of
data they have downloaded for a particular torrent (UL÷DL).  A share ratio of 1+ has a other users than he has received. Conversely, share ratios under 1 have a negative effect.
Swarm :The swarm is the sum total of all the leechers and seeders (i.e. all the computers)
participating in the torrent process.
Tracker: The tracker is a server which has the information of who has what files and who
needs which ones, thus acting as a bridge between seeders and leechers. Some trackers
are private requiring a registration where most are public. 
Availability : That number tells you how many unique copies of the file are available between yourself and the peers you're connected to. If this is less than 1, you most likely will not be able to complete the torrent. The only thing you can do is wait and hope a seeder hops onto the torrent to allow you to complete it.
You can also try and request a "reseed" on the tracker's forum. Sometimes, this may never happen because the torrent was abandoned, and you may need to find the torrent elsewhere.


Be savvy about copyright laws
The world of digital distribution can often be seen clashing with copyright laws.
Peer to Peer file sharing is completely legal but using it for distribution of copyrighted material it a punishable offence.
The protocol makes everyone a downloader as well as a distributor .
There have been numerous cases where torrent trackers which index the torrents available
have been shut down for infringing so Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have become proactive against many of them, because it represents a source of piracy. 

The safest course of action is to follow the copyright laws as laid down. Browse to the
copyright policy link of the respective tracker website; the better ones have it.   

Getting Started
Get your hands on a good torrent client, set it up and download our first file. 
Life on the BitTorrent lane gets easier if we have a good client to do the job for us.

I would recommend µTorrent And Vuze (formerly Azureus) .
Both are free, lightweight and cross platform (for all operating systems). 
Make sure you have the latest updated version.
Installing them is easy you can do it yourself.

Gearing up the torrent client for smoother run.   
Fortunately, µTorrent makes this very easy for the beginner.
Here are the basic steps - 
1.  When you start µTorrent for the first time it helps you out with a Speed Guide.

2.  The speed guide helps you to choose your correct   upload speed  . If you are not aware
from   DSLReports   website. Connect to the site by pressing the  button. Do not run any other application or browser at the time you are running the speed test. Run the test 2-3
times to get an idea of your average upload rate. 

3.  Select a setting close to your obtained upload rate using the  Connection Type  
dropdown. When µTorrent runs for the first time, a port is automatically selected for you.

4. Use Selected Settings  button and you are ready to begin. 

5.  If you want to recheck your upload speed, you can also run the speed test from the
µTorrent toolbar > Options > Speed Guide.   

Finding and downloading torrents
Going to a reliable torrent site also lets us avoid the pitfalls of downloading a corrupted file or even worse, a malicious virus.
A good torrent website filters out the undesirable and hosts clean torrents. 

The recommended ones are – 
PirateBay  and Btjunkie–  By its sheer size it is probably the most popular site in the torrent world with nearly 3.5 million users. The torrents also have little icons labeling them which say whether the torrents are from VIP users or trusted users. This reputation management serves as a mark of quality assurance. In their fight to bring the best they are constantly facing lawsuit threats
Mininova  – It enjoys a very good reputation of filtering out junk torrents. It is also one of the oldest torrent sites out there and definitely one of the cleanest sans any objectionable ads. If you have to restrict yourself to just torrent sites, then these two do the job. 
Vertor   –   In your continuing hunt to find clean, virus free and quality torrents, Vertor is a good place to stop by. Vertor separates itself from the herd by providing snippets of the file you are about to download. This helps to confirm the torrent as safe for download. Vertor by the way
Demonoid  – This site, though amongst the best, has one shortfall  you need to register for a free account. The registrations are only open for some time and you require an invitation to get into Demonoid. If you manage to get an account you will see why this is one of the best. Being a restricted circle, it has a strict usage policy.        
Legit Torrents and Legal Torrents list only torrents which are in the public domain and thus 100%legal.

Torrent search engines
There are the torrent search engines, which basically search a bunch of torrent
sites in one go and bring together all the results in one page.   
Torrent-Finder:   Search 172 torrent sites and trackers with this multi-search engine.
Torrentz: A simple no fuss torrent meta-search engine.

I personally use Torrentz and Demonoid.

The number of torrent search sites reflect the popularity of the protocol.
1.  Surf to any of the torrent sites and search for your desired torrent file.
Remember, a torrent file is nothing but a small 15-100Kb sized file which points to
the contents of the whole file and the people in the swarm.
2.  Click on the desired file (or any download link) to download the file to your computer.
The small file sizes will take up just couple of seconds of your time.
3.  Browse to your saved .torrent file and double click it to open the file with your torrent
client Or  drag and drop the .torrent file into your software
4.  Now, your software begins the download by first connecting to the tracker server to
find out who else is downloading the same file and which bits they have. 
5.  The tracker server identifies the users participating in the share and labels them as
either seeders or leechers. Look for a torrent with a higher number of seeders. The
ratio of seeders to leechers is the   share ratio   and a higher figure makes for a
healthier (and faster) torrent.
6.  The download begins and speeds up as the swarm increases. 

The time to complete the download will of course depend on the file size, the speed of your connection and the quality of the swarm.

When µTorrent finished downloading, but now it says it's Seeding
It is where you leave your Torrent client open after you've finished your download to help distribute it (you distribute the file while downloading, but it's even more helpful if you continue to distribute the full file even after you have finished downloading).
All the data you got was from seeds, so help give back to the community!
It doesn't require anything - µTorrent will continue seeding until the torrent is removed.
Proper practice is to seed until the ratio of upload:download is at least 1.00 or more if You like The torrent content and You Want other users to have it.
After your download finishes, you may enjoy the file you just got.
Now after all that hard work if you are thinking of deleting the leftover .torrent file and closing the client software just pause here.
This single selfish act.   
Always remember torrent remains alive And healthy only by uploading. 
Upload is essential for torrenting.
if we just keep downloading and no one uploads torrents would die and so would the content.
Uploading Wont Affect Your Download Speed!
So let the Torrent Seed while you can enjoy the download.            

How to be a good member of the torrent community?
After your download finishes, leave your Torrent client software running for at least for a day, or until you have uploaded as much as you have downloaded.  
Sometimes it may not be possible to follow this rule but it is important to get close to it. 
Tip:   Do your downloading at night so that by the time you wake up you have downloaded
your file and you would uploaded your share too. 
1.  Make a habit to check comments left by earlier downloaders regarding the quality of torrents. 
2.  Download torrents from a reputable website or join a private tracker.
Private trackers moderate the quality vigorously but then they are equally rigorous with their rules. 
3.  Try to avoid downloading files which have been split and zipped. Commonly they are fake torrents. Beware as there are a many fake torrents out there. Most of them are malicious.  
4.  Always read the rules and the copyright policy of the website you are downloading from.
5. If the torrent site you obtained it from offers comments, be sure to read those first.
But regardless of the comments, running a virus scan on the downloaded files is usually a good idea.
µTorrent guarantees that the content you download is not altered from when the torrent was originally created, but if the source files used to create the torrent were already infected, this will provide no protection!

A fine-tuning tutorial for faster downloads
By now you should be feeling confident about tackling a few settings under the hood. Just a
few nips and tucks to the default settings will help boost your torrent download speeds and
optimize it for your bandwidth. 

Your ISP is where it starts a specific bandwidths for both uploads and downloads. Obviously your torrent download speed depends on Isp so you cant Exceed the limits by Isp.
Choosing the right BitTorrent client and Keep updated to the latest version.   
Go for healthy seeds and peers
For high torrent speeds, the best bet is in numbers.
Greater the number of seeders, healthier is the torrent and   better is the chance   of higher speeds.
Choose torrent files with a high number of seeders and preferably lesser number of leechers i.e. a higher seed-leecher ratio.

It can block all incoming BitTorrent connections coming through.
To ensure otherwise, a firewall should be manually configured to accept the connections and let it through the client.
Configure the firewall installed to accept the connections by checking the BitTorrent client on the allowed list i.e.   Options>Preferences > Connection > (check) Add µTorrent to Windows Firewall .
Also, check the Windows Firewall exception (if you keep it enabled) in your client too. Shutting down the firewall is not recommended as it leaves the computer open to attack.

Limit your Upload rate and Download rate too
Using the speed tests, find out your maximum Upload speed and then set  80%  of your maximum Download speed.
You can try varying your upload speeds  keep it high initially and then gradually bring it down towards the middle of the download.
Downloads also tend to go quicker if you seed more.
Note: Mind the speed units  it may be given in   kilobits   per second (kb/sec) or   kilobytes   per second (kB/sec). 1 kilobyte = 8 kilobit
Go to a different port
The default port for the BitTorrent protocol is any between port numbers 6881-6999. ISPs
throttle traffic on these ports as BitTorrent sharing       
configure a different port in your torrent client. Use some number above 10000 to get around
ISPs and also avoid problems with other applications. By default, the µTorrent port is
randomized each time it starts. Set a specific port by not enabling the   Randomize Port  
setting. Again check if the port is forwarded properly using the button in the Speed Guide. 

Remember, different types of data, such as web sites, file downloads, and torrents, are each given a specific port.  
Port forwarding   is the process that a software (or hardware like routers) uses to screen the right kind of data to the right port.   provides step-by-step guides on how to set up this port forwarding. 

Increase the number of Max Half Open TCP connections
This figure specifies how many connections a torrent client should attempt to establish
simultaneously at any given time. To make it clearer  it is the number of connection
attempts   in progress and NOT the total number of connections. 
Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or newer, limits this to a default of 10 as a barrier torrent speeds as torrents too need a large number of simultaneous connections. A patch has been available for a while from  , which modifies the TCPIP.sys file in Windows to allow higher number of TCP connections. 

After running the patch, you have to set the number of connections in your torrent client. For example, in µTorrent go to Options > Preferences > Advanced > net.max_halfopen.  
Set any number from 50 to 100. But see that net.max_halfopen is set   lower   than the value set in TCPIP.SYS. Always check if it is still patched because Windows updates sometimes overwrite it.

Mac and Linux need not Tweak it as this is a Windows Only Shit. 

Experiment with Protocol Encryption
Some ISPs love to act like Big Brothers and constrict bandwidth for P2P protocols. Protocol
Encryption in most of the torrent clients helps to over ride this bandwidth shaping. Enable
outgoing protocol encryption and put a checkmark on   Allow Incoming Legacy Connections 

With protocol encryption, ISPs find it difficult if not impossible to detect that the traffic is
coming from BitTorrent. Experiment with enabled, disabled and forced options because you could be getting better speeds with encryption disabled. Non-encryption makes a torrent connection compatible with someone who is not using encryption but as a minus it makes the torrent detectable but an ISP with a bandwidth restricting policy. 

Bandwidth and connections 
Options will let you enter figures for  Global maximum number of connections   gives the maximum number of connections that a BitTorrent client can make for any P2P exchange. Setting this too high DOES not mean higher speeds.
Setting it too high would take up useless bandwidth and too low a figure would miss out on peers.
For my 256kbps connection, I have a setting of 130 Maximum number of connected peers per torrent  gives the maximum number of peers that a BitTorrent client can connect to for any P2P exchange.
Experiment by setting this number close to the available peers for a particular torrent. For my 256kbps connection, I have a default setting of 70.
Number of upload slots per torrent   gives the maximum number of peers that a BitTorrent
client will upload to for any P2P exchange. A low setting may affect downloads.
For my 256kbps connection, I have a setting of 3.

Optimizing the speed of torrent downloads is a lot of trial and error and a bit of patience.

Creating our own Torrent
So far we have been preoccupied with downloading features but torrents are not a one way
street. The community survives and thrives because somebody out there is taking the pains
to create and upload the torrents. Uploading a torrent is not all about being large
torrents and uploading them for your friends to download is also a cool way to distribute a
large digital chunk in one go.              
and the manner of torrents before you start with your first upload.

As soon as you save your torrent file, it gets added to your active list in µTorrent, and
the Tracker.          
All that is left is to upload the .torrent file to a tracker website like Mininova or
Piratebay. All tracker websites have an   Upload   link.
Some like PirateBay require a
log-in for you to access their upload page. Please read the rules and the copyright
policy before you upload your .torrent file. 

Enter the details in the form. Click on submit and you are done. Not quite! Now let the
torrent seed for a while so others can pick it up.

WIFI Hacking Software Download

2 free WIFI software that can recover WEP, WPA PSK keys and more. Enjoy!

1) WIFI Hacking Software

This tool has many different tools to hack and crack wifi so you can use your neighbours internet and do whatever. Tools for Windows and Linux also some nice extra tools!
Windows : Aircrack, Wireshark, Ettercap, Netstumbler, Airsnare, WIFIfofum, Wdriver, Pong, CommView, Airsnort, AiroPeek, Knsgem 2, Aptools, And A Nice PDF File
Linux Hacks: Airpwn, WEPcrack, Prismstumbler, WIFIscanner, Airfart, Magicmap, WPA-cracker , Wellenreiter , Void, Kismet, Cowpatty, WIFIzoo, And A Nice PDF File

2) AirCrack 2.1, AirSnort 0.2.6, AeroPeek 2.02

Aircrack ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, as well as the all new PTW attack, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact, Aircrack ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks.

AirSnort is a wireless LAN (WLAN) tool which recovers encryption keys. AirSnort operates by passively monitoring transmissions, computing the encryption key when enough packets have been gathered. 802.11b, using the Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP), is crippled with numerous security flaws. Most damning of these is the weakness described in Weaknesses in the Key Scheduling Algorithm of RC4 by Scott Fluhrer, Itsik Mantin and Adi Shamir. Adam Stubblefield was the first to implement this attack, but he has not made his software public. AirSnort, along with WEPCrack, which was released about the same time as AirSnort, are the first publicly available implementaions of this attack.

AiroPeek NX captures and decodes packets, with special emphasis on the 802.11 protocol. AiroPeek NX receives all wireless LAN packets based on user settable configuration parameters and stores these packets in memory. For example, you can set a filter to capture all packets, only 802.11 authentication request frames, or all frames except beacons frames. Just about any combination of packet types and protocols are possible.

5 Best Free Video Converters

This doesn't have to cost you anything, as there are a host of excellent freeware tools that provide all the functionality you'll ever need - and we've uncovered five of the very best.

SUPER (the Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer) uses several open-source tools to support a huge array of file conversion functionality.
The program is able to import all the main video formats, of course: 3GP, 3G2, AMV, ASF, DAT, DVR-MS, FLI, FLC, FLV, M2TS, MPG, MKV, MOV, M4V, NSV, OGM, QT, RM(VB), STR, SWF, TS, TRP, TY, TY+, TMF, VIV, VOB and WMV.
But SUPER can also record streaming internet videos. It's able to import sequences of images. And there's excellent support for audio file formats, too.

Output options include all the main PC video and audio formats, and the program also supports creating 3GP and 3G2 files for mobile phones, along with clips for the iPod or iPhone, Sony PS3 and PSP, Nintendo DS, Microsoft Zune, and more.
Figuring out how to do all this can take a while, as SUPER's interface comes packed with complex options. It's worth investing the time, though, because once you're familiar with how SUPER works then you'll be prepared for just about any file format conversion task.

2. Format Factory
Format Factory has a good list of output formats, being able to convert almost any video to MP4, AVI, 3GP, RMVB, WMV, MKV, MPG, VOB, MOV, FLV or even SWF files.
The program comes with a huge selection of device presets, too. So if you're not quite sure how your video should be configured, just choose the "All to Mobile Device" option and you'll find built-in settings for the iPhone, iPod and iPad; Sony PSP and PS3; Xbox 360; Microsoft Zune; and mobiles and other devices from companies like Archos, ASUS, Creative, HTC, iRiver, LG, Nokia, Philips, BlackBerry, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and more.
That's just the start, though. Format Factory can also convert audio files and images, join videos and audio files together, repair corrupted video files, rip CDs and DVDs, create ISO images - there are useful capabilities everywhere you look.

The program is a little buggy, crashing a few times in our tests. But if you can avoid these traps then Format Factory is effective, and fairly easy to use. Drag and drop a file, choose an output format and settings, and the program will usually be creating your video in just a few clicks.
3. Handbrake
Handbrake started life as an open source DVD ripper, quickly converting the disc of your choice into a more convenient video file. The program no longer provides any means of decrypting commercial DVDs, but by way of compensation it can now import just about any video format, thanks to the inclusion of some libraries from the FFmpeg project.
Export options are rather more limited, however. You can convert to MP4, or MKV, and, well, that's it.

If all you need to do is create videos suitable for your iPod or iPhone (or anything else that requires those formats), though, Handbrake will prove an excellent choice. The program provides a lengthy list of advanced options to control the final results, for instance.
But if you prefer a simple life, then you can ignore all these and have the program working in seconds. Just specify the source and destination file names, choose one of the presets (iPod, say), then click Start, and watch as your movie is converted.

4. HAMSTER Free Video Converter
HAMSTER Free Video Converter is a well-designed conversion tool that manages to include plenty of powerful features, without compromising on ease of use.
Importing files is as easy as dragging and dropping, for instance. Batch file conversion is possible so you can drop as many files as you like, and all the usual formats are supported.

Videos may be exported as AVI, MPEG, WMV, FLV, 3GP or MP3 files (if you only need the audio). Or you can choose predefined formats that will work on particular devices: iPods, the iPad or iPhone, or hardware from BlackBerry, HTC, Nexus, Nokia, iRiver, Creative, Zune, Archos, Xbox, the PSP or PS3.
It's then easy to customise your movie by choosing a video or audio codec, setting your file resolution, deciding whether you want to deinterlace the video, and more. Your preferred settings can then be saved in a list of Favourites for easy recall later, before you launch the conversion with a click.

5. Miro Video Converter
While most conversion tools have focused on adding more and more features, Miro Video Converter has moved in the other direction, stripping away every setting and option to make the program as simple as it can possibly be.
The process starts by dragging and dropping your video onto Miro Video Converter (it can handle almost every format).
Next, you're able to choose your output type. There's specific support for the iPhone, iPad and various iPods, the Sony PSP and a range of Android phones. Or you can do a simple format conversion to an MP4, Ogg Theora or WebM video.
Finally, click Convert and the program will create a new video in the same folder as the source file (though with a new name, fortunately).

There's no scope for customising your movie in any way, then - you can't change the resolution, frame rate, bit rate or anything else. This makes the program extremely simple to use, though, so if you're put off by the more intimidating interfaces of our other tools then Miro Video Converter could be worth a look.

40 Horrifying Statistics Of Collapsing U.S. Economy

Most Americans still appear to be operating under the delusion that the "recession" will soon pass and that things will get back to "normal" very soon. Unfortunately, that is not anywhere close to the truth. What we are now witnessing are the early stages of the complete and total breakdown of the U.S. economic system. The U.S. government, state governments, local governments, businesses and American consumers have collectively piled up debt that is equivalent to approximately 360 percent of GDP. At no point during the Great Depression (or at any other time during our history) did we ever come close to such a figure. We have piled up the biggest mountain of debt that the world has ever seen, and now that gigantic debt bubble is beginning to pop. As this house of cards comes crashing down, the economic pain is going to become almost unimaginable.

Already, things are really, really, really bad out there. Unemployment is at shockingly high levels. Foreclosures and personal bankruptcies continue to set new all-time records. Businesses are being shut down at a staggering rate, more than 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. government continues to pile up debt at blinding speed.

There is no use sugar-coating it.

Windows 7 SP1 Crack Download

A workaround designed to bypass the activation process of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) has already been released in the wild, and is available for download from various sources of illegal content, including warez websites and torrent trackers. Dubbed the Windows 7 Loader, the activation crack is updated constantly, especially as Microsoft is also constantly tackling workarounds that illegally activate the latest iteration of the Windows client.

What is interesting is that the authors of Windows 7 Loader are indicating that the crack will also work with Windows 7 SP1. Microsoft only recently released the first public Beta development milestone of Service Pack 1, and the upgrade is also designed to render useless an impressive number of cracks, among other things.

According to the software giant, Windows 7 SP1 contains the Windows Activation Technologies for Windows 7 (KB 971033), an anti-crack update released by Microsoft earlier this year. At the time of the initial release, the Redmond company revealed that the Windows Activation Technologies update was designed to kill no less than 70 illegal activation exploits for the RTM Build 7600 of the operating system. It appears that Windows 7 Loader is one exploit that the Windows Activation Technologies cracks killer is not capable of, well, killing.

Of course, Windows 7 SP1 is only due in the first half of next year, most probable in the first quarter of 2011. By that time, Microsoft can update its cracks killer in order to tackle all Windows 7 activation workarounds, including those designed for the first Windows 7 upgrade.

The authors of the Windows 7 Loader underline that the crack is especially designed to render WAT (Windows Activation Technologies) useless. The workaround is set up to inject a SLIC (Software Licensing Description Table) into the Windows 7 system ahead of the Windows boot process, managing to bypass the activation process and pass the OS off as genuine.

God bless Piracy!
