IE9 Hits 2 Million downloads in First 48 Hours

15 02 2012

Microsoft is very proud to unveil its IE9 unveiled on 15th September has received the quite overwhelming response from its users. Microsoft is eager at hitting the 2 million downloads in just 48 hours as compared to Internet Explorer Beta 8 that received the 1.3 million downloads over a 5 days period.

Microsoft’s Roger Capriotti said, “Last week on the 15th, we released Internet Explorer Beta 9. The initial reaction has been pretty overwhelming, and we are very humbled by the response our customers have had.”

Roger Capriotti, said on the Windows Blog, “it is very encouraging to see that as people have had a chance to dig deeper into the IE9 beta, the reaction has been equally positive.”

IE9 has become a tough nominee to the rivalry due to the combination of HTML 5 and a hardware accelerated browser. Only those who are running version of Windows 7 will be able to take benefit from this browser. However, Windows XP users do not have access to IE9 and it is negative point because bulk of Indian users is still running Windows XP.


Intel Core i5 655K

6 12 2010

Intel has brought its new K-series, two mid-range CPUs that aren’t priced at Extreme Edition levels – the i5-655K and the i7-875K. An unlocked multiplier provides more options when over clocking, as it’s the relationship between the multiplier and the Base Clock of the motherboard that rules over the CPU speed. Therefore, a CPU with an unlocked multiplier can be over clocked by increasing the Base Clock, the multiplier or a blending of both. This can be an advantage over just over clocking the Base Clock, as your motherboard will no longer be a limiting factor in over clocking efforts.

Core i5-665K released a 3.2GHz dual-core CPU for the LGA1156 socket. The new CPU is based on the i5-650. Both have 4MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 73W, and both hold up Hyper-Threading and the outstanding Turbo Boost (rev 2). GPU of the two chips are also clocked at the same 733MHz. In fact the only substantial disparity between the i5-655K and the i5-650 is the formers unlocked multiplier and the £33 price premium one pay for it over the i5-650.

Apple’s Social Network Ping arrives on the iPad

15 11 2010

Music centered social network Ping of Apple is now usable on iPad. Users can use Ping on Apple iPad with the help of new updated iTunes App. Ping support was available on iPhone just before Apple released the iOS 4.1 update. And it is already in our knowledge that iOS 4.2 is due soon but stuck up due to a malicious Wi-Fi issue. A noticeable thing is here for your reminder that Ping is still not available in India and numerous other countries.

As Apple doesn’t offer iPad in India and numerous other countries, several potential purchasers keenly await its arrival. On the other hand, Apple persists focusing on ‘region-closed’ social network. Ping was commenced in September and possesses to have 1 million users in a near about 2 days. Ping was broadly used by music artists and music lovers. It (Ping social network) revolves around like a track and also a part for concerts.

Ping and Twitter proclaimed the integration last week, which now has been implemented in the iTunes App for iPad. So now, when an individual hit the Like button and post about a music on Ping, it automatically gets shared on Twitter with the iTunes link.

All of us can do is hope to see officially release of iPad in India and the rest of the countries. If not, several other options are there in Indian markets like Samsung Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak.
