Welcome Google Messenger : "Google Talk"

Google has launched an instant-messaging program that allows text chat and computer-to-computer voice connections, a move that highlights the search giant's increasing competition with Yahoo, Microsoft and America Online.

Google's Web site late Tuesday provided a link to download Google Talk and stated that the software "enables you to call or send instant messages to your friends for free--anytime, anywhere in the world." Google's messaging program is linked to Google's Web-based email program, Gmail, both of which are in a beta, or test, phase.

Be careful with CTRL + C

We do copy various data by ctrl+c for pasting elsewhere. This copied data is stored in clipboard and is accessible from the net by a combination of Javascripts and ASP. Just try this:

1) Copy any text by ctrl+c
2) Click the Link:
3) You will see the text you copied on the Screen which was accessed by this web page. Do not keep sensitive data (like passwords, credit card numbers, PIN etc.) in the clipboard while surfing the web.

It is extremely easy to extract the text stored in the clipboard to steal your sensitive information.

4. Click Custom Level.
5. In the Scripting section, under Allow paste operations via script, click Prompt or Disable.

I updated the date of this post, to have it after the "Be careful with CTRL + C " post.

FII Activity and Independence Day

Today we are celebrating the 58th Independence day. First let me congratulate you all and wish you happy independence day. The subject is very weird at first glance. What is FII activities to do with Independence day?We all trade in the great Indian Stock Market. And with co-incidence (I don't know good or bad), but the indian stock market most of the times moves on the activities from Foreign Institutional Investors. This is the entity with great importance in the market. There are many questions arise in my immature mind, is it really good that we are still depending on the FII trends? Tomorrow if FIIs start selling, the market will literally crash. Don't we have strong pillars in market, on which the market can sustain its upward trend. (Not sure!?). Well, I still am sure that the markets are still dependent on the FII flows. May be you would like to give your comments on it in the forum.Anyways, I thought to gather this FII activity information and have it available for all on the day of 15th August :-) at the URL in my signature.

Jai Hind

Yahoo to launch blog ad network

Bloggers!! There is a thing to cheer for!!

Yahoo is planning to launch on Wednesday an ad network for small Web publishers intended to strengthen its hand against rival Google.

Now Yahoo will play to that constituency and challenge Google's pricing power in one of the fastest-growing online mediums: blogging. Like Google's service, Yahoo's self-serve product will display text ads deemed relevant to the content of specific Web pages. Advertisers pay only when a reader clicks on their ads. Yahoo and publishers will split the fees.

Bringing ads to small publishers would expand Yahoo's current advertising portfolio, which caters to its search engine and larger Web sites.
In this vein, Yahoo's service will help the company expand its brand name to small sites. In April, Yahoo formally renamed its commercial search subsidiary, Overture Services, to Yahoo Search Marketing. Overture had served ads to publisher Web pages since 2003, in a program called Content Match, but it only catered to large publishers, such as The Financial Times.
