What do websites that support color palette community or have online graphic editors have in common? They all need a color picker to stand out from the crowd. Acko.net has created an easy way for webmasters to include a color picker in their pages, too. With a JQuery plug-in, users can add a fully-functional color-picker, just like the one in Photoshop. Visitors who are already familiar with the picker won’t have any problem using this, either. (more…)
The continued development of the Ajax framework has allowed a tremendous increase in what website interfaces are able to do. With truly programmable aspects, Ajax has lead to an Internet that is far more capable than what most imagined in the days of static HTML. One of the most stunning culminations of the power of Ajax is drag and drop interfaces. Google’s iGoogle interface demonstrated how a drag and drop interface can make a website attractive and highly interactive. Websites often emphasize customization and drag and drop functionality allows pages to be customized without having to access a separate “customize” or “personalize” page. (more…)
My other Acer laptop runs on Windows Vista OS. Today I got automatic update from Microsoft. Once I finished with updating and laptop rebooted, I tried to connect to Wireless router for surfing internet. But to my surprise, internet was not working. I’m using Belkin wireless router. Laptop was not at all connecting to the router. LED for wireless network activity was not blinking anymore. So I tried many solutions, many of them which didn’t work. Finally I had success by tweaking Atheros AR5007 network adapter driver settings. See the step-by-step solution with screenshots below. (more…)
If you don’t know already what is 3D Printing, read this article. Or you can even see some amazing applications of 3d printing here. 3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing. Real objects can be made using 3D printers. The object is made using successive layers of material. Designs are made in either Computer Aided Design (CAD) software or 3D animation modeling software. This design is fed to 3D printer which will read the layers from design and lay them in provided material. I think that gives the idea of how 3D printing works. Let’s see them in action. I’ve posted several 3D printing videos which are equally amazing and proves the changing landscape of manufacturing. (more…)
If you are working on a document and have determined that you need some images to help get the message across, you can use pictograms, which are also known as icon fonts. In simple words, a pictogram is a symbolic representation of an object or concept. For example, scissor pictogram is being used to show ‘cut’ option in MS Office. Pictograms are great to use when you are developing projects such as website, online services and apps for smartphones and other portable devices. (more…)
The previous article about brief look at 3D printing technology was not sufficient to accommodate all those amazing 3D printed stuff. It pushed me to write this article that demonstrates the power of 3D rapid prototyping in various sectors like medical, defense, fashion, auto mobile, robotics etc. This article contains roughly 40 3D printed objects that will blow your mind.
“PDC/ECS/SI of Rs *** on a/c *** is due on 30102012.” – See How India’s Largest Bank Fails Technically!
Imagine that one fine morning, out of the blue you receive an SMS from your bank saying few thousands of Rupees are due on your account; even though you have nothing to do with the due amount. Probably you would call customer care or may rush to the bank asking for clarifications. There it gets even more ugly as none of the executives knows about that message and tells you to ignore it. How would you feel? Weird, I suppose. This has happened with me and plenty of other customers who holds Loan Account with State Bank of India – India’s Largest Banking and Financial Services company. If you doubt my claim, search Google with the text mentioned in the title and it would fetch plenty of such State Bank of India complaints. (more…)
3D printing is bringing the future within reach of the people who need it most. The digital age has evolved to the point to where computers and printers can create useful, three dimensional objects. The medical community is using 3D printers to create exact molds that enable people to walk, and they are currently experimenting with how to create arteries and veins to enable the creation of entire organs via three dimensional printing. Motorcycle and car manufacturers are already using this technology to create specialty parts for one-of-a-kind and prestige vehicles. Apart from it, my other article about 3D printing applications clearly shows that usage of 3D Printing is steadily growing in many more segments like defense, energy, home decor, fashion, jewellery etc. (more…)
It’s difficult enough to keep up with the latest trends in the world of web development without having to remember the many new HTML5 tags in current usage. However, coding proper HTML5 is more important than ever thanks to the rapid and widespread adoption of the standard around the Internet.

Traditionally speaking, a photo collage is a group of pictures that are creatively arranged together to create a single photographic image. Collages tell a photographic story by threading a recurring theme throughout the collage. People create many different types of collages, from remembrances of special events like weddings, birthday parties and births to highlighting a special vacation or spotlighting a favorite hobby that translates well in pictures, like nature or action photographs. Digital photo manipulation applications open up many new display possibilities for amateur and professional photographers alike. 123 Software, the developers of the I Am Here and Conference Caller apps have created the Collage 7 app for Windows phones. By downloading and using this free application, it’s very easy to create collages right on your phone using saved pictures on your phone! (more…)
