Cook the book

Funny as it sounds, it in fact is a marvelous idea and yes, you read the title right, you have to cook the book before you read it, why? because the book if not cooked will be nothing more than sheets of blank pages. The marvelous idea behind were Bruketa & Zinić, a Croatian creative agency. For the 7th annual report of the food company Podravka which is called Well Done was created for the people who know how to cook. If you even fail to maintain the temperature while cooking then the book will turn black, well, overcooked in other word. But if you manage to cook it right then all the secret recipes will be revealed.

The time of Pirate Bay

Underestimating itself last month saying that Pirat Bay's peer will grow upto 10 million by the holiday but turns out it has already reached 8 - 10 million within a month. This could very be the good times of Pirate Bay but also possibly worse as prosecutor will take charge against 5 people involved with Pirate bay with 4000 pages of evidence.
Is this the end or the beginning of Pirate Bay??

War on Scientology

A hacking grouped named anonymous officially declares war on Scientology. A youtube based message which can be found here starts something like this "Hello leaders of Scientology. We are Anonymous,Over the years we have been watching you, your campaigns of misinformation, your suppression of dissent and your litigious nature. All of these things have caught our eye. With the leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation the extent of your malign influence over those who have come to trust you as leaders has been made clear to us. Anonymous has therefore decided that your organisation should be destroyed"..
Several sites relating to Scientology have been affected including site religousfreedomwatch.org which has been removed due to suspected distributed denial of service attack(DDoS). The main website of Scientology www.scientology.org was brought down on Friday but was back online on Monday and is running slowly now.

Wondering why "Anonymous" are attacking Scientology? Apparently Scientology is responsible for removing many critic and message that relates to anti Scientology religion from digg.comYoutube.com and many other sites. Hackers say that they waged war on scientology just to safe guard the freedom of speech.

In my belief Anonymous are doing excellent job, everybody must respect freedom of speech whether it be complete disapproval.
"Nice Job Anonymous"

The truth about Project

We should all learn something from Activision

I myself am a programmer and apart from programming I know little about Microsoft Outlook, Powerpoint, Thunderbird or any other office program for that matter. But Activision taught me a vital lesson, even if we can make all those awesome games and programs it really doesn't hurt to learn simple program a bit more.
The corrected version of Guitar Hero 3 for Wii was sent to all the Guitar Hero 3 consumers that previously only supported Mono sound but with the corrected version Activision gives away all the customers email id too. Wow!! is that bonus? Many people are outraged by this and few people find it having nominal harm.
