    Hello Moto 

    Motorola Moto razr v3i

    Moto Razr v3i has an absolute mind blowing design and awesome features and this is my best gadget of the year 2006. Let me tell you – I am totally impressed by all its features, and I had never imagined that Motorola would roll out a winner. No doubt Nokia is the #1 company here, but it now faces some serious competition.

    Party – I am the Times person of the year. 

    I am pleased to be selected as the person of the year – 2006 by the world famous Times Magazine. Read it as ‘face of the year‘ or ‘mug of the year‘, or ‘eyes of the year‘ because, the moment you look at the front cover, you notice that a strange pair of eyes stare at you. Lo..interestingly, they belong to you. I think that proof is enough to get convinced that you have been selected as the person of the year for 2006.

    Interesting deal. I suspect that there were either too many contenders for this post(ranging from my grumpy professor, Dubya Bush, our local news paper agent to Osama, Osamas cook, the toilet cleaner of UN generel assembly or the pet dog of Zambias chief district magistrate. Depends.) or probably Times thought that now is the time to accept that Web 2.0 is far more superior then conventional paperback or web 1.0 web contents, in terms of public feedback and flexibility, and more importantly – Trust.

    Yet another example of marketing strategy overtaking technology. Prior of getting selected as Person of the Year, I didnt know that a thing like Times exist 😉 . I accept that its a part of my ignorance towards paper media, but still..Times sales might have doubled or tripled once they announced this historic decision. Maybe its ‘time’ that others too take a notice of this.

    Meanwhile – Long live Web 2.0 !!!

    Gates: Digital locks too complex for consumers 

    Microsoft boss Bill Gates has told a group of influential bloggers that copy protection for digital music and video is too complex for consumers.

    Mr Gates was speaking to an invited party of bloggers and web developers at Microsoft’s Seattle headquarters.

    Digital Rights Management (DRM), which is used to stop copying, is a big issue for some people who feel it limits what they can do with legally bought files. Microsoft is one of the biggest exponents of DRM, which is used to protect music and video files on lots of different online services, including Napster and the Zune store.

    Backers of DRM argue it gives artists an assurance that their work is being protected while critics of DRM argue that the tools limit the value of downloaded music or video files because of the restrictions imposed to try to prevent copying.

    Hmm…better late then never, Mr Gates realized that he is too gonna go the Apple way.

    AppArmor 

    OpenSuse

    I am tempted to use this distro..has got more sleek graphical features as compared to ubuntu, and also has got AppArmor

    AppArmor is an application security tool designed to provide an easy-to-use security framework for applications. AppArmor proactively protects the operating system and applications from external or internal threats, even zero-day attacks, by enforcing good behavior and preventing even unknown application flaws from being exploited. AppArmor security policies, called “profiles”, completely define what system resources individual applications can access, and with what privileges. A number of default profiles are included with AppArmor, and using a combination of advanced static analysis and learning-based tools, AppArmor profiles for even very complex applications can be deployed successfully in a matter of hours.

    The official description is located here and Ubuntu users will be happy if they click  here.
