Get Important Data While Chatting in Gtalk from Google Talk Guru

Google Talk Guru is an experimental service to provide important Search Results (may be most common search results ) in Gtalk itself. The concept is like you are chatting with your friend in Gtalk and you want to know the current status of your favorite sports or the weather in a city at the same time. You do not need to go to Search by leaving the messenger to obtain this information. Google Talk Guru will tell you the current status of your favorite sports or the weather details in Gtalk itself. To get this service you should invite Google Talk Guru to chat with you. You can do it by login to Gtalk and invite to chat with you. You can use specific commands to obtain results from it. The list of commands provided below. According to this, if you want to get weather details of Delhi, you can type it as weather Delhi. You will get the current weather details from Google Talk Guru.

Compare LG Optimus 3D & HTC Sensation -Best Smart Phone Option

Both these phones (LG Optimus and HTC Sensation) have an element of 3D technology, though the LG’s pure 3D screen is more technologically forward thinking than the Sensation’s 3D graphics. However, the two are also part of the new generation of dual-core phones – so let’s compare them. Compare Processor of LG Optimus and HTC Sensation The Optimus has a dual-core 1GHz chip with 512mb of RAM whereas the Sensation is running 1.2GHz with 768mb of RAM. On paper and in real life the Sensation is the more powerful device and this does give it a lead. In real life, both are very powerful and there is little in the way of lag in either machine, making this fact not so much of an issue. Camera Quality This does offer a different story; the camera of Optimus is a notable 3D flasher, meaning it has two lenses for recording in 3D. Both can record 1080p, though the Optimus also records 3D in 720p for play on the screen. The LG though does have a 5mp as opposed to the Sensation’s 8mp camera

For last few weeks Macintosh users have been tricked by a malware named MacDefender and it seems the number of victims increases rapidly. The same program also appears in some other names like Mac Protector or Mac Security to trick. This software appears like a legitimate security program and prompts Macintosh users to install it by showing some fake malware alerts. Once the user installs the software, it starts asking them to register the program to remove the infected malware and ask credit card details to complete the registration.

How to Promote a Health Related Website in Google & Other Search Engines

Website promotion is not a complicated strategy but needs lots of attention and care to get the maximum results. Professional web promotion could be made efficient only by taking enough time to research on the topic.
