After a long wait, orkut apps are live for Indian orkut users. Couple of months ago, Orkut announced the plans to launch apps for orkut very soon which they rolled out a month later for just one country - Estonia. That was enough for everyone to have a feel of orkut apps easily even if their respective regions did not have access to orkut apps (courtesy this hack). Today we began rolling out applications (apps for short) on orkut to everyone in India and will roll out apps to all orkuteers, in local languages, over the next few weeks.Apps are integrated directly into your orkut experience. When you log into your profile, you will be able to add up to 25 apps to your orkut profile. Your friends will see all the apps you've added, be able to interact with them, and can add any apps they like to their own profiles. Apps can relate to anything, from games and music to travel and books. Users can now add applications from orkuts application directory. They can also submit their open social applications to the directory. Interesting fact to notice is Brazil, the country which Dominates orkut is still waiting for their turn to have the real feel of orkut apps though some hacks can surely help the cause.

Would you like to display your own icon on the browser address bar and browser tabs when visitors view your web pages? if yes, then this article leads you in right direction. A favicon (short for 'favorites icon'), also known as a website icon, page icon or urlicon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such icons in several ways and many recent web browsers can then make use of them. Browsers that support them may display them in the browser's URL bar, next to the site's name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page's title in a tabbed document interface. The original means of defining a favicon was by placing a file called favicon.ico in the root directory of a web server. This would then automatically be used in Internet Explorer's favorites (bookmarks) display. Later, however, a more flexible system was created using HTML to indicate the location of an icon for any given page. This is achieved by adding two link elements in the <head> section of the document as follow. <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico"
<link rel="icon" href="http://example.com/favicon.ico" />
In this way any appropriately sized (16×16 pixels or larger) image can be used and, although many still use the ICO format, other browsers now also support the PNG and animated GIF image formats. Your favicon should be such that it differentiate your site, when you open so many tab simultaneously. It always reflect the theme of the website.
Firefox is one of the famous web browsers in internet world, such as: Internet Explorer (IE), opera, safari. According to me, Firefox is the best web browser that I have used. Beside that, Firefox is also provided for 3 main platforms (Windows, Linux, Ubuntu and Mac). The advantages of Firefox are:
1. Free Web Browser We can download Firefox freely from its official website (Mozilla) and also automatic update to the newest version. For download firefox mozilla click here. 2. Extension (Plugin) In Firefox, we can put many plug-ins based for our needs. It is called “add-ons”. Mozilla add-ons provide many extensions that can be installed freely from its official website. The extensions are like: Firebug, Google Preview, You Player(Plays Youtube video in sidebar), GBookmark, toolbars and many more… 3. Themes Same as extension, themes are also can be installed to our Firefox. There are many themes that can be chosen as we like. 4. Multi-tab Firefox give an efficient for us to open some websites in one window. 5. Bookmark Firefox provides bookmark function for us to save the URL of our favorite websites. 6. Portable Themes and extension are made for portable use. Firefox does not need to register. We also can install Firefox in our flask disk by using Portable Firefox. 7. Protection from Spyware Firefox is built by more security base from others web browsers. Firefox does not allow downloading any software automatically. Firefox does not allow any website to download and install software to our computer. Except, there is permission from us. So, it is very safety from spyware. 8. Popup Blocker Firefox will block pop-up that disturb our view when we are browsing. We also can customize blocking pop-up option, so just only some website can open pop-up 9. Clearing Private Data Firefox offers a skill to clear all browsing private data by only one click (Clear Private Data). So we no need to afraid when you are using private computer or in public. 10. Open Source Firefox is an open source program and there are a thousand of programmers and internet security experts that contribute to Firefox in anticipate security threats to our web browser. 11. Standard Complaint Rendering engine Gecko is one of engines that agree with standard from W3C (institution that manage websites). So, the web performance is same as standard and does not make programmer confusing. 12. JAWS JAWS (Job Access With Speech) is from Freedom Scientific (www.freedomscientific.com). JAWS is a program that is used to change texts or objects that is on monitor become sound output. This program is very useful for blind people to listen texts that are read by screen-reader program. This is also can support Firefox.

Coming next year you may have to update all your mobile phone number and phone directories. Because all mobile numbers will 11 digits till next year instead of current 10 digits with ‘9′ being prefixed to all mobile numbers and thus ‘99′ will become the first two digits of every mobile number. India is a growing mobile market 8 million mobile subscribers being added each month and total subscribers to soon overtake that of US Subscribers becoming the second largest mobile market in the world.However, the fixed line phone numbers would continue to remain as is it is. While all GSM and CDMA subscribers whether old or new, would now have 11 digit numbers.
China a country with similar population has 11 digit mobile numbers while India has 10 digit mobile numbers. Is it timidity of the "planners" or failure of regulatory authorities. Its the usual story everywhere, freeways, electricity generation, bandwidth, telecom, urban growth, sewerage the trends visible to the rest of the populace somehow miss the bureaucrats in their ivory towers.
Google has again come with fresh idea of voice search. Now you can collect any sort of information on the phone to learn about movie halls, restaurent, malls or any other business in your vicinity. The Google has provided a toll free number for that "1 800 41 99 99 99". Currently this facility is available for hyderabad people only.For example, suppose you can call Google on this toll-free number to get details about movie hall and then ask Google itself to forward your call to a particular movie hall so you can book your tickets.
