I don’t search very often, but whenever I do, I find the Windows 7’s default search tool inadequate. It’s slow, it doesn’t have many options to filter results, and it requires the file indexing service to be running in the background, which is a big performance hit as it keeps grinding my hard drive incessantly. Microsoft did a good job integrating search throughout the operating system – on the start menu, on explorer, on the Control Panel.

At its Ideas Summit presentation in New York, Google unveiled a new technology called uProxy that allows users to bypass internet censorship imposed by ISPs and governments by creating peer-to-peer connection.

However, if the web page contains a custom color scheme by the way of CSS styling, the defaults are overridden. In today’s web, you seldom come across a website that doesn’t use their own design and colors, which makes the blue-purple color scheme a rare sight.

People generally are obsessed with wealth. We are curious how much movie stars make or how much a company is worth, and eagerly pour over the annual “richest people” list. The other day, the Credit Suisse Research Institute released their Global Wealth Report for 2013, that reveals the global wealth distribution pattern together with some fascinating facts. Take the following for example: the wealthiest 32 million individuals (just 0.7% of the world's population) together hold 41% of global wealth. In contrast, only 3% of global riches belong to the poorest 3.2 billion, despite representing 68.7% of the world population.

Unless you look very keenly, the tiny gem is easy to miss.
In an effort to clean up the notoriously awful commentary that appears under nearly every successful video, Google has been pestering YouTube users who are logged into their respective accounts to use their real name. This has been going on for more than a year, long enough for some people to start losing their nerves.
The “real name" is taken from the person’s Google+ account since Google requires anybody signing up for an account on Google’s social network to use their real name. This name then appears whenever the person uploads a video or writes a comment on YouTube.
