Last night, my friend has opened an e-card in her email box. And then her computer restarted. After that, her anti-virus software(Avest) was keeping to popup some virus warning. Besides of Avest!, I found there is a software, "PC Security 2009" kept to popup as well. This software look and feel, icons look very very similar with Windows. But I found the software has not "About ..." Information. I did a google search, there is a spyware which is pretending itself as anti-virus. Please be careful!
I have used the fantastico at cpanel to create my joomla instance. I found I can't type any chinese characters, after saving, they became like "???". The problem is the collation in mySQL database is set to latin by default. My solution is create a sql dump and ten replaced to collation on each table and field to utf-8.
Wow, I have read the blog post from Google. They are only blogging and they are tweeting too. They have a number of twitter accounts. I have a look on there, that seems to be each their service has an twitter account. Read more their offical blog.
I read some blog posts. The people are comparing Chrome OS to Windows. Windows has a strong competitor now. But I think Google uses "Chrome" as the name of their new OS. I think they are thinking in a different approach. Both "Chrome" OS and Browser are tools for them to integrated their Google Apps with your computer. So, their approach helps the computer users to get access to the Cloud. To summarize, I will say Chrome OS + netbook is the tool to access Google Apps and that is an extension of Google Apps or the user front of Google Apps.
Google announced they will start a new project, Chrome OS. Chrome OS is open source and run in x86 and ARM CPU. That is different from Android and a brand new project. That is targeted at a small netbook market.
Well, that makes me to remember gOS. gOS is a linux distro which is a kind of Google Apps Enabled Linux and some netbooks are using that as OS too. I am woundering whether Chrome OS like gOS to use Linux?!
