Kim Dotcom (owner of former Megaupload.com) launched a brandnew filehosting service called MEGA
ඉතාම ජනප්‍රිය filesharing අඩවියක් වූ Megaupload වෙබ් අඩවිය FBI එක විසින් වසා දමා එහි සර්වර්, හිමිකරු, කාර්යමණ්ඩලය අත් අඩංගුවට ගෙන හරියටම වසරක් පිරෙන ඊයේ (2013-01-20) දිනයේ එහි නිර්මාතෘ Kim Dotcom විසින් නවතම, ආරක්ෂිතම filehosting සේවාවක් අන්තර්ජාලයට මුදාහරිනු ලැබුවා.

තවමත් Beta තත්වයේ පවතින අතර ඉදිරි දින වලදී තව තවත් අංග එකතු වීමට නියමිතයි.

50GB ඉඩක් සඳහා නොමිලේ register වීමට දැන් අවස්ථාව තියෙනවා.

ඊයෙ නම් සයිට් එක ගොඩක් වෙලාවට ඩවුන් වෙලා වගේ තිබුනේ. හේතුව ඉතා අධික තදබදය. මුල් පැයේදී පමණක් මිලියනයකට වඩා visitors සහ 250,000 වඩා නව registrations සිදු වී තිබුනා.

මුල් විනාඩි 10 තුලදී ඔවුන්ගේ 10Gbit ජාලය saturated වූ බවයි පැවසෙන්නේ.

අද දිනයේ නම් අවුලක් නැතුව වැඩ කරනවා.

MEGA හි ෆයිල් අප්ලෝඩ් වෙද්දිම අපේ බ්‍රවුසර් එකේදි encrypt වෙලා තමයි අප්ලෝඩ් වෙන්නේ. ඒ නිසා MEGA හි වැඩ කරන අයටවත්, FBI, MPAA, RIAA කිසිවෙකුට අපි අප්ලෝඩ් කරන දේවල් මොනාද කියලා බලන්න බැහැ අපේ decryption key එක නැතුව..

MEGA හි භාවිතා වෙන අළුත්ම තාක්ෂණයන්ට තවමත් 100%ක්ම පහසුකම් ලබාදෙන්නේ Google Chrome බ්‍රවුසරයේ පමණයි.

encrypt වෙන නිසා එයාලට අපි දාන ෆයිල්ස් මොනාද කියලා බලන්න බැරි නිසා කිසිම නීතිමය තත්වයක් යටතේ MEGA සේවාව නීති විරෝධී කටයුතු වලට යොදාගනන්වා කියලා චෝදනා එල්ල කරන්න බෑ.

Taiwan engineers defeat limits of flash memory

Taiwan-based Macronix has found a solution for a weakness in flash memory fadeout. A limitation of flash memory is simply that eventually it cannot be used; the more cells in the memory chips are erased, the less useful to store data. The write-erase cycles degrade insulation; eventually the cell fails. “Flash wears out after being programmed and erased about 10,000 times,” said the IEEE Spectrum. Engineers at Macronix have a solution that moves flash memory over to a new life. They propose a “self-healing” NAND flash memory solution that can survive over 100 million cycles.

MacBook Pro With Retina Display Shipping Estimate Improves To 1-2 Weeks


The line for a MacBook Pro with Retina Display just got a bit shorter. The US Apple Store now pegs the new MBP’s shipping estimate at 1-2 weeks.

The MacBook Pro with Retina Display launched with much fanfare in early June. Apple called it the “most beautiful computer we have ever made.” The model quickly sold out, pushing shipping times to 3-4 weeks, which later fell to 2-3 weeks. Best Buy lists the model with a shipping estimate of 7-30 days.

MacRumors points out that the ship time improved to 1-2 weeks in the European and Asia-Pacific regions.

While the supply levels are improving, the models might still be hard to get a hold of for the forseeable future as the back to school season approaches. Apple’s PC market share is increasing as more people seemingly jump the Windows ship onto Apple’s party boat. The MacBook Pro with Retina Display does not currently have a direct competitor thanks to its amazing screen, thin chassis and class-leading battery life.

Started by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, Apple has expanded from computers to consumer electronics over the last 30 years, officially changing their name from Apple Computer, Inc. to Apple, Inc. in January 2007. Among the key offerings from Apple’s product line are: Pro line laptops (MacBook Pro) and desktops (Mac Pro), consumer line laptops (MacBook Air) and desktops (iMac), servers (Xserve), Apple TV, the Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server operating systems, the iPod, the…

Eric Schmidt-Backed Slice Reveals Revamped iOS And Android Apps


Don’t let their recent quiet streak fool you — the team at Eric Schmidt-backed receipt aggregator/tracking service Slice have spent the last few months slaving away on revamped versions of their iOS and Android apps, and now that major update is ready for the purchase tracking masses.

With Slice 2.0, co-founder and CEO Scott Brady wanted to do more than just track packages and aggregate users’ purchase histories. Perhaps the most notable addition to the updated Slice mobile apps is a new personal analytics option called Thingerprint that breaks down how much users have spent on what kinds of products, with options to drill into specific purchase categories, item types, and merchants.

Naturally, most of my paycheck goes toward gadgets and other similarly shiny new things, so Slice’s Thingerprint has branded me a “Gadget Geek.” It may not be the most original addition to the mix — rivals Lemon and OneReceipt have taken a similar approach — but having a fairly comprehensive breakdown of your purchasing habits at your fingertips isn’t the sort of thing most users would turn their noses up at.

While the addition of personal analytics adds another dimension to the service, some of the updated bits were just about making Slice more accessible to particular use cases. During Slice’s early days for instance, the service could only connect to and scan Yahoo! And Gmail accounts for emailed receipts and tracking notifications.

Not so any more — Brady and his teamed fleshed out Slice 2.0 with support for iCloud, Hotmail, and AOL email accounts. Also featured prominently is the ability to manually add a new purchase to your Slice account by scanning the barcode off of a packing slip, though it should be noted that the Android version requires users to download a separate scanner app for that feature to work properly.

Some of the additions included in this most recent update may seem like no-brainers, but the process wasn’t always that straightforward. Brady confirmed to me that there was plenty of thoughtful testing and retesting before he and team signed off on the final updates.

“The focus groups give us ideas on where we like to take our capabilities,” he said “We rely pretty heavily on them, and before we go too far on any product we do plenty of testing and tweaking.”

For what it’s worth, his approach seems to be working so far. Since Slice’s launch in May 2011, the service has processed and tracked over 25 million purchases, and that number is sure to grow even larger if the company eventually gives in to their users’ demands.

“Behind additional email support, global availability is the second most requested feature,” Brady remarked. “Today we only support the U.S., but we’ve created a technology that can work throughout the rest of the world.”

Slice provides the simplest way to track and organize everything you buy online. Slice keeps shopping information organized and accessible. After signing up, the app automatically pulls information from electronic receipts within email and organizes it in one place for quick, easy reference – all while keeping personal information private and secure. With Slice, users can track packages automatically, save money with price drop alerts, access e-receipts and purchase details anytime and track your spending. It even processes electronic…
