private messages become public on facebook bug

Panic on Facebook. Metro magazine reports that due to a bug, former private messages are published in public to the Timeline.

 Everyone does not seem affected by the bug, which suggests that it is not systematic. Bug or flaw concerns private messages exchanged between 2007 and 2009. These are would display on Timeline of transmitters and receivers of these messages unbeknownst to their users.

It is not the first bug related to privacy on the network but rarely a technical problem the network has been so critical to its users.

How Much RAM To Get via Crucial

If you’re looking to add extra RAM (random access memory) to your computer or laptop, you’re most likely trying to make your computer faster and more powerful. By adding more RAM to your computer, not only will your computer run much faster, but you’ll also be able to run tons of programs at once without your system slowing down or crashing.

Before you can upgrade the RAM, you’ll need to know exactly how much RAM your system can handle.

Every computer will have a different RAM setup as well as a different maximum RAM limit. Some computer setups have two RAM slots and others may have four RAM slots.

 The Crucial memory scan is one of the best free resources to use to help you upgrade RAM on your computer yourself.

Crucial memory is a great computer memory company that provides RAM upgrades for your computer. Running the Crucial memory scan will let you know right away how many RAM slots your system has, how much RAM your system currently has, and exactly how much extra RAM you can add to your computer. One of the most significant factors determining how much RAM your system can support depends on whether your system type is 32-bit or 64-bit. 32-bit system types are generally limited to 4GB of RAM as opposed to 64-bit system types which can handle a lot more RAM.

 I ran the Crucial memory scan on my laptop and found out it has two RAM slots and a maximum RAM limit of 2GB (see image below). My RAM is already maxed out since my system type is 32-bit, which doesn’t allow much room for extra RAM.

After you find out your system RAM setup you can properly figure out how to upgrade RAM in your system. If your system has four RAM slots and a maximum of 8GB of RAM, you can get either two 4GB RAM slots leaving the other two slots empty or four 2GB RAM slots. If your system is already at the maximum RAM limit or if you’d like to add more RAM to your computer then what your system can currently support, you can upgrade your operating system to a 64-bit type. All operating system editions are available as either a 32-bit or 64-bit system type.

If you’re looking to add the most RAM possible, a 64-bit operating system is definitely the way to go. You can also upgrade your hard drive as the Crucial memory scan may recommend some solid state drives, although upgrading the hard drive is a much more difficult and time consuming hardware replacement. If your computer has a hard disk drive you may want to upgrade to a solid state drive (SSD). Solid state drives are much faster compared to hard disk drives as they are non-moving memory and completely eliminate file fragmenting as data allowing data to be stored all in one easy to access place.

A concept for Sony Xperia

What would the next Xperia phone from Sony? A designer has created what could be the smartphone of the Japanese multinational.

 It is a high-end phone inspired by the first generation of Tablet S. Designed by Abel Verdezoto, the Xperia has a modern design with fine shape.

From top to bottom, the mobile is refined gradually. This allows for easy storage in a pocket or slip it into a bag. Slim and lightweight, the smartphone is also distinguished by its options.

 Indeed, it would have a 4.6 inch touchscreen, a mini-HDMI port and a microSD slot. With a camera, the logo front lights of different colors for each application.

Most of the Xperia is that it has a hinge that allows placement in vertical or horizontal position. More to switch to speakerphone or watching videos.

Nokia Lumia 510: mid-range Windows Phone 7.8

The rumor that Nokia will continue to launch Windows Phone 7.8 models despite the arrival of Windows Phone 8 confirms with the arrival of the Nokia Lumia 510 smartphone that has emerged in China.

He had already been described under the code name Nokia Glory and is therefore positioned near the Nokia Lumia 610 in the mid-range, with a terminal with a 4 "screen, a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 800 MHz processor provided by Qualcomm, with 256 MB of RAM.

 At the time of its certification, we learn that its dimensions are 120.7 x 64.9 x 11.51 mm to 129 g and is compatible with GSM / WCDMA / HSPA. It is equipped with Windows Phone 7.5 and shall be entitled to update Windows Phone 7.8, but like other Windows Phone today, it will not until Windows Phone 8.

 For entry-level Nokia therefore always trust Windows Phone 7.x although there are also rumors of smartphones Windows Phone 8 at entry level in the Finnish manufacturer, but rather expected in early 2013.

Ebizcuss liquidated: "202 people like this" on Facebook

"Ebizcuss Judicial Sale. 202 people like this." There is a certain irony to announce a liquidation auction and hardware on Facebook.

 The company Ebizcuss first Apple Premium Reseller (APR) French, has yet to do so. For the occasion, the firm auctioneers judicial SCP Marielle Digard - Vincent Pestel-Debord opened a special Facebook page: Ebizcuss judicial sale.

 She explains that the material of its eight stores (5 paris, one in Nantes, Marseille and 1 1 Lyon) will be auctioned between September 30 and October 9.

 Sale on site and online "Will be selling new equipment, demonstration equipment set out in the shops as well as the equipment used by the 400 office employees," wrote Master Marielle Digard, auctioneer court near the Commercial Court of Paris, on the page.

 End of the road for APR?

The liquidation procedure has been in place since June, but the sale of equipment is symbolic.

 French first APR, Ebizcuss has suffered in recent years, including the change in strategy from Apple. After signing distribution partnerships, Apple has taken in hand in its Apple Stores.

Ten reasons To justify the migration to windows server 2012

We had the chance to test the prerelease version of Windows Server 2012. Some were put off by the interface formerly known as Metro. But focusing mode and the Server Core server interface minimum, the user interface should not play a role in the decision of the majority of those considering the upgrade.

What is more important are the major changes and new capabilities that allow Windows Server 2012 to better manage the "workloads" and the needs of your network. Here are ten reasons to seriously consider upgrading to Windows Server 2012.

1. Freedom in the choice of the interface

A Server Core installation provides advantages in terms of safety and performance. But in the past, you had to decide for one side: if you install Server Core, you were immersed "in the dark", with only the command line interface. Windows Server 2012 changed all that. Now you have a choice.

Microsoft has indeed realized that the command line is great for certain tasks, but the GUI is better for others. In Windows Cerver 2012, the GUI becomes a "feature" that you can turn to your liking. To do this, simply use the Delete roles or functionality of the Server Manager.

2. Server Manager

Speaking Server Manager (Figure A), even many of those who do not like the new interface overall mosaic admit that the implementation of this presentation in the new Server Manager is remarkable.

Among the most significant features of the new Server Manager capabilities include multi-server, which facilitate the deployment of roles and features remotely on physical and virtual servers. It is easy to create a server group, ie a group of servers that can be managed together. Improvements in remote administration enable you to service servers without having to establish an RDP connection.

3. SMB 3.0

SMB (Server Message Block) has been significantly improved in Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. The new version of SMB supports new features of file server, such as SMB transparent failover, scalability SMB, multi SMB, SMB Direct SMB encryption, VSS for SMB file sharing, the lease directory SMB and SMB PowerShell. This is what is called for money ...

It works perfectly with Hyper-V, so that the VHD files and configuration files of virtual machines can be hosted on SMB 3.0. It is also possible to store a SQL database on an SMB share, with better performance. For more details on the new SMB 3.0, read this post.

4. Dynamic access control (DAC)

While some may argue that Microsoft has neglected security in recent years, it would be more accurate to say he has continued to focus on security products for distinct focus on the integration of security into every part of the operating system.

The dynamic access control is an example: it helps professionals create more centralized security models for access to network resources by tagging sensitive data both manually and automatically, depending on factors such as the file's contents or its creator. Access controls based on the statements can then be applied.

5. Storage space

Storage is a hot topic in the world and complex computer today. Despite the fact that we will all end one day or the other by any store in the public cloud, this day is still far away (and for many companies concerned about the security and reliability, it may never happen ).

There are many ways to store data on your network in a way that provides better utilization of storage resources, centralized management and scalability, as well as security and reliability. This is particularly the case of SAN and NAS. But these solutions can be expensive and difficult to implement.

The storage spaces are a new feature of Windows Server 2012 that allows you to use cheap disk to create a storage area, which can then be divided into spaces that are used as physical disks. They can include hot spares and use redundancy methods such as parity or mirrored on two or three players. You can add new records at any time, and space may be larger than the physical capacity of the area. When you add new disks, space automatically uses this extra capacity. To learn more about storage space, read this post appeared on MSDN.

6. Hyper-V Replica

Virtualization is inseparable from the world of today servers, Hyper-V is Microsoft's answer to VMware. Although it took immediately the head, the platform virtualization Microsoft has gone to great lengths to catch up. At each iteration, the Windows hypervisor improves a little more, and Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 introduces a number of new features, the most interesting being replicas Hyper-V.

This is a replication mechanism that will be a boon for disaster recovery in SMEs are not always able to deploy solutions replication complex and costly. It logs changes to disk in a virtual machine and uses compression to save bandwidth, making replication from a primary server to a replica server. You can store multiple snapshots (snapshots) of a virtual machine on the replica server, then select the one you want to use.

This also works well with autonomous clusters with hosts, in any combination: self-autonomous cluster to cluster, cluster or standalone cluster independently. For more information on Hyper-V Replica, read this TechNet article.

7. Improvements VDI

The Windows Terminal Services have come a long way since they first appeared in Windows NT Terminal Server Edition. Renamed Remote Desktop Services, they are no longer content to establish an RDP connection to the desktop of a remote computer but have largely enriched. Microsoft offered a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) centralized in Windows Server 2008 R2, but it was still a bit messy. Significant improvements were made in Windows Server 2012.

Longer need a dedicated graphics card on the server to use RemoteFX, which significantly improves the graphic quality of RDP. Instead, you can use virtualized graphics processor on standard server hardware. Access USB over RDP is much better, and the functionality of a balanced load distribution can control how the processor, memory, disk space and bandwidth is allocated between users to avoid problems of monopolization of bandwidth. To learn more about the improvements and VDI RDP in Windows Server 2012, read this article.

8. DirectAccess more intuitive

DirectAccess was supposed to be the "alternative to VPN" from Microsoft, a means of establishing a secure connection between the client and the corporate network without impacting performance and user experience with a more transparent than traditional VPN. Not only do users do not have to deal with running the VPN, but administrators also benefit from greater control over the machines, with the ability to manage even before users connect to it. To apply a group policy, you use the same tools to manage computers physically present on the corporate network.

Why everyone has he not used DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2 instead of VPN? A major obstacle was the dependence IPv6. In addition, virtualization was impossible. These obstacles are a thing of the past. In Windows Server 2012, DirectAccess works with IPv4 without going through conversion technologies, and the DirectAccess server running at the network edge can now be a Hyper-V virtual machine. Windows Server 2012 version of DirectAccess is also easier to configure, thanks to new assistant.


Despite the many advantages compared to the first NTFS file systems FAT, it is in place since 1993, and Windows aficionados expecting a new file system for a long time. In 2004, we were looking forward WinFS, but we were disappointed in Vista does not include. Similarly, speculations ran quickly to the introduction of a new file system with Windows 7, but that was not the case.

Windows Server 2012 brings the new file system as expected: refs or resilient file system. It supports many of the features of NTFS, but leaves a few others aside, the most notable perhaps being the compression of files, EFS and disk quotas.

In exchange, we offer Refs data verification and auto-correction, and is designed to work with the storage space to create logical storage areas collapsible / expandable. The new file system supports a maximum scalability, supporting up to 16 exabytes in practice. (This is the maximum theoretical specifications NTFS, but in reality, it is limited to 16 terabytes). Refs accepts a theoretical limit of 256 zétaoctets (over 270 billion terabytes), which allows great scalability .

10. Simplified license management

Anyone who has worked with server licenses objected that the very term "simplified license management" is an oxymoron. However, Microsoft has listened to customers who are confused and frustrated by the complexity when they find the correct edition and understand what it really will cost. Windows Server 2012 is available in four editions only: Datacenter, Standard, and Essentials Foundation.

The first two are offered with a per processor license plus a CAL, and the other two (for small businesses) with a license server and limits on the number of user accounts (15 for Foundation and 25 edition edition Essentials). For details of license for each edition, visit Microsoft's website.

A chip capable of charging a battery

After many years of research, Intel engineers have developed a system that can recharge any electronic gadget without any wire or connection.

In fact, just place the device to reload at a distance of 20 mm from another unit. Called Wireless ChargingTechnology (WCT), these chips will fall into two distinct categories: the first will be sending and receiving the second.

To be functional, Wireless ChargingTechnology operates the electromagnetic resonance system.

The waiting time is one hour for a fully charged battery. However, this lapse of time is variable depending on the device.

In collaboration with IDT, a company specializing in the field of wireless communications, Intel plans to produce these chips in 2013.

The iPhone 5 explodes counters, Samsung Galaxy talks about his S4

If we believe the reactions to hot those of you who follow us on twitter, the iPhone 5 was rather disappointing and logically promised a relative commercial flop.

Nay! Apple today delivered an estimate of the number of pre-orders placed during the first 24 h: they amount to 2 million, more than twice those recorded at the launch of the iPhone 4S.

This success is consistent with the expectations of analysts who expect sales doubled compared to the iPhone 4S last year.

But Apple's competitors heard everything to stem the tide iPhone 5.

Samsung in particular has not only published comparative advertising sarcastic about the new iPhone, but also lit a fire against leaving some of its "responsible" Korea Times communicate some information about the Galaxy S4.

According to its "leaks", the S4 will be launched at the next MWC in February 2013, only nine months after the Galaxy S3 presented at the beginning of May 2012.

This accelerated renewal sounds like an admission of the strength of the iPhone and it is not the only Samsung has made another communicating its sales forecast of S3.

That it took only 60 days to sell 10 million units, then 46 days to reach 20 million, should wait until the end of this year, is still a further 3 months to over 30 million sales.

S4 happen but with strong arguments (though somewhat already seen): a faster processor (undoubtedly Exynos 5250, that is to say, a Cortex A15 able to compete with the A6) and a screen always larger than 5 inches. Continue the design style "rounded rectangle" (sic).

HP offer new smartphones

The group HP has long been a leader in the PDA in the 2000s and has evolved into smartphones and finally PDAPhones but always remaining within the framework of products for professionals, without seeing the rise of consumer uses.

Overwhelmed, he let others take over a track that had contributed to the emergence PocketPC / Windows Mobile before attempting a comeback recently by buying Palm and its WebOS system.

The initiative, which would give the company a presence in the market for tablets and smartphones public was a resounding fiasco. Now, the group will try a new stimulus with Windows 8 tablets but staying again on the slope by professional proposals under x86 only, and not in ARM / Windows RT.

Fujifilm to end production of movie film

Fujifilm has announced that it stopped production of negatives (film used during video recording) and positive (used for projection) in March 2013. This is an ad for the symbolic world of cinema that advances more rapidly to digital.

The company says it will still produce more films for archiving that are marked for a life of 500 years.

This decision is highly symbolic. There are still some manufacturers of video films, but they are rare. Fujifilm was one of the greatest, but the decline in demand made ​​the market unattractive. He could not produce at a reasonable price. It nevertheless retains its activity movies photo.

The question is for how much longer (see "Completing the silver Nikon").

McAfee invented DRM photos posted on Facebook

Which was presented to us as a "condom for your social life" allows you to prohibit your friends to download your photos published.

The screen printing is disabled, but we have no details on the exact functioning of this solution.

It will still be difficult to understand the value of DRMiser content published on a social network. Indeed, the best attitude for the content that you will not see published remains ... not to publish them. For the rest, when a screen can display content, it is anyway possible to circumvent such a solution one way or another.

With such a tool, McAfee probably trying to have a social dimension, giving the impression to the users should be protected especially while educating them on the risks of social networks or learn to properly manage parameters thereof.

iPhone 5: compatible LTE in Europe

The new Apple iPhone should carry a modem compatible with LTE networks worldwide (almost) and then in Europe.

After the 4G LTE compatibility (Long Term Evolution) that the new iPad has finally been limited to the United States and Canada, the rest of the world can access the best of 3G DC-HSPA + 42 Mbps, the question of LTE compatible iPhone 5 arises and if it is proved, with what frequency LTE.

The two questions are of an answer in an article published in the Wall Street Journal a few days of the conference on September 12 that Apple is most likely unveil the new iPhone.

The economic newspaper said, still according to sources not mentioned that the iPhone 5 will be compatible LTE frequencies and valid worldwide. If the United States and parts of Asia have moved to LTE since early 2011, deployments in Europe are still small and large operations will begin in 2013.

The iPhone 5 should therefore be part of the LTE for Europe including Stéphane Richard, Chairman of Orange indicated they lacked even cruelly to launch its LTE deployment in Marseille in June and asserting that the situation s 'arrange by year-end.

The iPhone 5 will be compatible LTE

The source of the Wall Street Journal points out, however it is not guaranteed that provide compatibility for all mobile operators in all countries. LTE with a network of broad frequency bands and various variations and even modulation (FDD West TDD in China TD-LTE harmonized with the local 3G standard TD-SCDMA). Is the founder Qualcomm modem that provides mobile products and Apple must cope with this puzzle different frequency bands.

LTE smartphones segment is within the smartphone market, one of the most dynamic countries have already deployed LTE networks but also one of the most profitable, the terminals being positioned generally upscale and generating margins. For mobile operators, they are also an opportunity to consume data services and introduce new packages in mobile broadband, both on the general public and business services that can benefit large flows but also low latency, creating an experience comparable to fixed broadband.

In the particular case of France, the three operators Orange, SFR and Bouygues Telecom want to go fast in their LTE deployment once the kick-off in early 2013 to take the fourth gear operator Free Mobile, busy deploying its 3G network / 4G for a few years.
