Ever heard of Baby Rescue? It may sound strange to many and probably familiar to others. For those who enjoy flying around in helicopters, then this would be very interesting for you as Baby Rescue is a game that involves flying all over the world to rescue stranded babies. Baby rescue is a game produced by Kooapps LLC.
Baby Rescue is played by basically making use of the touch screen controls and the accelerator feature found on the iPhone. The main idea behind this game is actually flying a helicopter across very beautiful landscapes. The mission being, rescuing all the babies on that level. I guess this must sound like fun. It would be much more fun if you actually play the game. The excitement of being able to save babies is wonderful. As one plays the game they feel like they are experiencing a great sense of achievement. This can be compared to a challenging army rescue operation.
As a developer and website designer one of the most important things to me is tracking clients as well as my own websites. The tracker I most use is Google Analytics and the best fit that ties into it is Analytics App. This app is available for both the iPad and iPhone devices. A larger interface on the iPad (because of its larger screen) is the only difference between adding the app to the devices. The interface is well done but could use a little more modern style. I would describe it as being a mix of an iPhone app and a lesser app. It can be purchased at the App Store for both the iPad and the iPhone and isn’t made to be universal.
The Stats Is What It’s All About!
I require that any type of app I use ties in with all the features of the Google Analytics. The Analytic apps …
SunSmart, the new iPhone app will now alert you on how long you can bask under the sun without risking your body to potential cancer causing ultraviolet rays. This will be a boon for Australians as deaths due to skin cancer surpasses those killed in road accidents in Australia. Shockingly two in three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they reach 70 years of age.
Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari are fighting with great fanfare and technology media is busy with their benchmark results, Opera seems to be slightly forgotten. Yet, not only the browser is far from dead, it is still regularly innovating, the version 11 is now available for public beta which may re-ignite the long lost interest on the Big Red O.
Opera 11 offers many new features, some of which are innovative and others are simply an attempt to imitate the competitors. The public beta offers an original solution to the problem of multiple tabs. Put simply, what will you do if you have so many tabs open and it becomes so difficult to navigate through them? Opera’s response: allows users to make tab groups. The concept is very simple, just select a tab and it drags on another. This feature can only be done manually and it can’t be used to create logical …

After years of preparation, GPUs (graphics processing units) are beginning to be used by major server vendors. IBM and Dell are the first tier-one server manufacturers to use GPUs as server co-processors.
These chips are normally used in consumer-level computers, where they offer high-speed graphics performance, primarily for 3D games. But it is slowly dawning that GPUs make amazing math co-processors for math-related tasks than just offering stunning graphics. Both Dell and IBM announced at spring 2010 that they’ll use Tesla M2050 GPUs in their latest server models.
It was a big win for Nvidia, which for years has been actively pushing the idea of using its GPUs as high-performance math co-processors. If you’re already familiar with desktops in 80’s, you might have heard about math co-processors that are sold separately to accelerate math-intensive calculation. In this case, spreadsheets, such as Lotus1-2-3 may have higher calculation performance when using the chip.
Over the years, …

Project manager has been accused by developers as an arrogant jerk who forgets or doesn’t even know what it is like to design and code an actual web development project. All of this is harmful in any development projects. Reflecting on that situation a bit more, you may be wondering whether there are things managers ought to remember in improving their relations with web development team.
1. Communicate Your Goals Clearly
Nothing more annoying than handing down designs you hastily cobbled together to your developers team to “figure it out”. Each time you want to have a specific site structure, create an easy-to-understand presentation using Powerpoint. Or better yet, use Flash animation as mock-up, so everyone knows what the final product should be.
2. Follow Your Own Standard
It’s exciting (well, maybe to a few people) to assemble standards documents that define the build structures, coding conventions, source code nomenclature, code organization, and …
So far, this has been the year of Smartphones in the consumer electronics market. We have seen the likes of Apple and Google introducing their variants of Smartphones. Google’s Android Powered phones have also flooded the market having high-end and high price tag phones and also the low budget phones offering multitude of features. The cellphone manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Motorola, and HTC all have something new to offer to consumers.
So if you are searching for Smartphones that are not heavy on pocket and offer amazing features then you should truly go for HTCs Desire HD and T-Mobile G2. If you really want to opt one, you should read reviews of both these devices. HTC Desire HD review comprehensively describes the handset features. T-Mobile G2 review would give you deep insight into the software and hardware features of the phone. For your convenience, I am going to give a brief comparison of both these Smartphones, so that you can decide which one suits to your requirements.
The trend is for antivirus programs to add spam filtering, firewalls, etc., eventually being marketed as security suites. This is usually done by just adding more features to the existing program. Ad-Aware Total Security 1.0, new from Lavasoft, takes a different approach. Most of its features are from G Data, Lavasoft’s partner in technology.
The suite itself is massive, taking up more than a gigabyte of hard disk space after install. By comparison, Norton 360 uses 250 megabytes, and Norton 360 less than 200 megabytes. Because of the size, you can expect installation to be a lengthy process.
The main screen of Ad-Aware shows the usual status indicator in green, yellow or red, and a button for fixing problems. CPU usage is shown by the overall system as well as by Ad-Aware’s components. Components of the main protection have panels showing details of status, as well as links for changing configuration or taking action.
