Google Implements Two-Step Authentication Worldwide

In June 2011, many Gmail accounts were compromised by hackers. Passwords of many US officials, political activists and officials in different countries were stolen.

Ever since then, Google had been working on it’s Two Step Authentication method. This method has enhanced the security of Google account holders. This method requires password based authentication along with a verification code which is sent to the user either through voice, call/text or is generated on the user’s smartphone device via a Google app from which one is accessing his/her account.

Oracle Sues Google Over Java Copyrights & Patents

In the tech industry, suing rival companies is not a big deal so its no surprise that Oracle sued Google.

The bone of contention is Google’s US$100 million deal with Sun Microsystems to pay the royalties for using Sun Microsystems’ programming language java for building the, then-new operating system, Android.

The deal has invoked a copyright infringement case against the search giant Google. However, Google has denied the allegations put forth by Oracle.

Windows 8 Online ID Through Cloud Sync -LEAK

Even though Windows 8 is set to launch in 2013 or 2014, we have already seen a large number of leaks. While it is cool to see what Microsoft is working on next, all these leaks are sure to take the entire novelty aspect away from consumers. Maybe this is a secret strategy on Microsoft’s part, educating us over a span of a few years about the next Windows so we all hop on it like a German Shepard lunges at a slab of steak. If this isn’t Microsoft’s strategy, well, then they are complete newbs, which I have to leave open as a possibility given the relatively recent release of Windows Vista.

How To Make An Un-Hackable Password That’s Easy To Remember

Researchers from the Max-Planck-Institute fur Physik komplexer Systeme and from Axioma Research have devised a new method that allows users to create passwords that are harder to hack but easier to remember. To achieve this, the researchers combine nonlinear dynamics and chaos to create encrypted p-CAPTCHAs, or password-CAPTCHAs. The best part of these passwords is that you only have to remember a portion of your password and the Java applet does the rest!

The Collaborative Silo Universal Translator

The internet is full of translator websites, however, none are excellent and few are accurate. Ase Deliri is attempting to solve this by creating the Silo universal translator. The site offers support for 880 language/ dialect combinations, including sign language, and offers you the ability to search across all dialects within a language.

Silo’s content is user-generated, so people have to register and upload information. Also, the translations are phrase-based, as opposed to translating individual words like most current online translators which often come up with interesting and inaccurate results. Users will be able to tag phrases with descriptions such as “insult” or “local proverb.”
