Insurgents Hack U.S. Drones - WSJ.com: "Senior defense and intelligence officials said Iranian-backed insurgents intercepted the video feeds by taking advantage of an unprotected communications link in some of the remotely flown planes' systems. Shiite fighters in Iraq used software programs such as SkyGrabber -- available for as little as $25.95 on the Internet -- to regularly capture drone video feeds, according to a person familiar with reports on the matter."

Radiotracker Free | Audio Download | PC World

Radiotracker Free | Audio Download | PC World: "Radiotracker Free is an app that scans publicly available Internet radio stations, rip the tracks from them, and save them as MP3s. It works leagues better than competitor iGetMusic ($40). First, it's not restricted to two Internet radio stations as iGetMusic is, but instead has access to thousands. Second, instead of having to settle for low-quality music, audiophiles can restrict stations by bitrate, meaning Radiotracker will only scan for high-quality recordings, the same quality as individual tracks you'd buy from iTunes or Amazon MP3. Third, it requires no dubious browser security modification to work--just an install of the app and a couple of network drivers that install automatically with it."

DéjàClick | Browsers & Clients Download | PC World

DéjàClick | Browsers & Clients Download | PC World: "Want to automate common Firefox browsing tasks, such as logging into your Web-based mail, or tracking a package online? Then you'll want to give the free DéjàClick a try. It's a simple-to-use recording program that will record your actions, let you save them as a script, and then run them for you.

DéjàClick is an addon for Firefox. It places a series of buttons in its toolbar just below Firefox's Address Bar. You use the buttons to record and save actions, play them back, and so on. To record your actions, simply click a Start button. Then click the Stop button, save your file as a script, and when you want to replay the actions, call up the script and run it. You can also create any script as a 'Super Bookmark' that lives in your normal bookmarks. When you click the Super Bookmark, instead of going to a site, it replays the script."

You can also teach it to perform a multi-step task, such as clearing your recent Firefox history, by typing one command."

New Neurological Evidence That the Internet Makes People Smarter | Popular Science

New Neurological Evidence That the Internet Makes People Smarter | Popular Science: "he new study shows that having people use the Internet can actually change their brain function. The experiment involved 24 adults, between 55 and 78 years old. Half had scant experience on the 'net. The other, web-savvy half served as a control group. Participants underwent fMRI scans of their brains while searching the Internet, before and after a two-week Internet training period, when the participants searched the Internet for an hour a day for seven days total. When the naive group was scanned again while using the web, areas of the brain involved in decision making and working memory (things you quickly hold in your head, like a new telephone number you're about to dial) showed more activity.

'The Internet may be a form of brain exercise,” Small told Popsci.com. 'Whether [the brain changes] translate to other aspects of life, we don’t know yet, but it’s certainly a possibility.”"

It's an age-old question: When you're done using your laptop, or just taking a break from work, should you put it to sleep, let it hibernate, or turn it all the way off?

How to make Windows XP your default operating system in dual boot with Ubuntu

How to make Windows XP your default operating system in dual boot with Ubuntu

Lots of people are trying out Ubuntu, one of the currently most popular distributions of Linux. Why not? After all, it's free. Many are installing it to dual boot with their Windows OS, which is a good idea since many Windows applications that you may rely on to do your work don't run in Linux. However, you may notice that its boot loader takes over and makes Ubuntu the default operating system, and that might not be what you want. To change that behavior, you need to edit the Grub boot loader menu. Here's how:

1. Boot into Ubuntu
2. Click Applications | Accessories | Terminal to open a command line window
3. At the command prompt, type sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
4. When prompted, type your password
5. In the file, find the following section:

## default num
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
default 0

6. Change the 0 to the number of the Windows boot section, which should be 4 on a typical dual boot system where you installed Ubuntu after XP
7. Save the file with the changes

It's a good idea to back up the file before you edit it. See this page for instructions:

How To Safely Uninstall Ubuntu From A Windows Dual-Boot PC

Posted: 24 Oct 2009 01:00 PM PDT
www.makeuseof.com...[A great site and a great daily email available from them.]

Linux is a great operating system and more often than not, it’s the installation of Linux that is the matter of discussion.

For a change, I will be talking about how to uninstall Linux Ubuntu (or other operating systems) from a dual boot windows pc, and still being able to boot into other OS without much work. So let’s get started right away.
Backup your Linux files

It pops up everytime, but backup really is very important. If you have been using your Linux system for some time, chances are you would have created files you wouldn’t want to loose. In such a case, you can boot into Linux, backup your files (check out your Home directory) on an external device or onto a Windows partition.

Alternatively if you somehow managed to mess up and can’t boot into Linux, you can use ext2 IFS which allows you access to your Linux paritions. It can only read ext2 and ext3 filesystems though. If you are using other filesystems, you would have to look around a bit for a similar application. In any case, you can always boot from a Linux live CD to backup files if everything else fails.

Delete Linux Partitions

Next step: delete every Linux partition. That would include everything – boot, swap, home, whatever way you set up your system, it is time to delete all Linux partitions. There are a couple of ways to achieve this, easiest being from within Windows’ Computer Management. You need to:

how to uninstall ubuntu from dual boot windows pc

* Log in to an account with administrative privileges.
* Right click on My Computer, click ‘Manage’.
* Choose ‘Disk Management’ listed under ‘Storage’ and you will see all of your partitions listed there.

Next, you need to identify Linux partitions. The Linux partitions generally don’t have a file system listed with them if Windows doesn’t recognize it, so this can serve as a clue. Other ways can be identifying by size or partition number. You can use partition managers, these are generally better at identifying filesystems. Go ahead, delete the partitions, just make sure you delete the correct ones. Linux is gone and so is GRUB, which allowed you to choose operating system to use at boot time. So currently, you cannot boot into any other operating system, without some help. We are going to fix that soon.
Restore MBR

As we noted, GRUB is gone and so is the ability to boot into Windows. You would now need to boot from the Windows CD/DVD to restore the Master Boot Record. You can also use other Live CDs like one of my absolute favorites and highly recommended HBCD just in case you don’t have Windows installation media handy. Here are the steps:

* Boot from Windows CD/DVD and choose “Repair” when it shows up.

uninstall ubuntu from dual boot pc

* Choose command prompt on the resulting screen and run the following two commands:
o bootrec /fixmbr
o bootrec /fixboot

XP users need to run the recovery console from Windows XP CD and then type fixmbr when at the command prompt.
Reclaim free space

Restart now, remove the CD and you should be able to boot into your Windows installation. Once there, you should go ahead and reclaim the unpartitioned free space which was previously occupied by Linux. Doing so is simple and straight forward:

* Fire up Disk Management as before.
* Right-click on the unparitioned space, choose new partition or new logical drive.
* Specify the size and other options according to your needs and you are done.

The free space should now be accessible from My Computer like any other partition. Alternatively, you can create multiple partitions from the free space or resize existing partitions to suit your needs.You can use utilities like GParted, Easues Partition Master or any one of the many partition managers on HBCD to perform such advanced tasks easily.

Download it here: http://www.hirensbootcd.net Look for DOWNLOAD link on the page.
Hiren's BootCD is a live CD containing various diagnostic programs such as partitioning agents, system performance benchmarks, disk cloning and imaging tools, data recovery tools, MBR tools, BIOS tools, and many others for fixing various computer problems.[2] As it is a bootable CD, it can be useful even if the primary operating system cannot be booted. Hiren's Boot CD has an extensive list of software. Utilities with similar functionality on the CD are grouped together and seem redundant; however, they present choices through different UIs and options in what they can do.

While this collection of tools can be very useful, potential users should note that many of the tools are commercial applications that have not been legally licensed for redistribution, and so download/use/sharing of Hiren's BootCD may be illegal (depending on your legal jurisdiction).
