Canon 5D Mark II produces amazing 1080p video

September 28, 2008

I think if you watch the sample videso on a 1080p screen you’d be amazed at the quality! Probably beats some HD camcorders in terms of image quality! As Digial SLR aren’t for your average consumer the price of $2,700 is not unexpected. In the UK its more like $4,000! we brits always get ripped off, as you no doubt you’ve heard a million or so times before.

We all know netbooks aren’t meant for gaming, as is the case with the ASUS N10 netbook! however in this case the N10 comes with the ability to change graphics cards in-between reboots, from Intel 945 graphics to nVidia GeForce 9300M which will allow you to play games! not a bad trick.

Also If you want to play 720p videos you might be out of luck, as according to the reviewer it struggles, shame!

Use NoScript to protect yourself from Clickjacking

September 26, 2008

With all the hubbub about Clickjacking (gag, buzzwords!), I thought it would be valuable to write a brief article on the topic.

What it is

Details are still being suppressed at this point, but it appears to be an IFRAME manipulation used to effectively cover a normal web link with a trusted site that appears good and proper, with a bad one to an attacker site. That is, in its currently disclosed form. The implication is that it could potentially be a lot nastier, maybe even 100% automated. In any case, this attack could conceivably be used for phishing or host exploitation.

Who it affects

Basically, any modern browser which supports IFRAMEs. This includes any reasonably current versions of IE, Firefox/Mozilla, Safari, Flock, Opera, etc. So, pretty much everybody. It doesn’t include browsers which don’t support IFRAMEs, such as lynx or elinks.

Windows 7 to exclude email, photo and movie software

September 25, 2008

There is some new information out detailing Windows 7, as well as a date for a conference where Microsoft give out some pre-beta of 7. There is also a blog for the development of windows 7, and right now, most of the focus seems to be around the taskbar. On a more interesting note, Microsoft will not be bundling any e-mail, photo, or movie making programs, and instead will offer a free Windows Live download. I’m pretty much a huge fan of that, as i have yet to use outlook, and never really used Microsoft Picture viewer ether, and i don’t make movies..Yes, so, pretty much anticlimactic, but what can you do.
