5.Pope Benedict XVI:
Pope, Roman Catholic Church
Age: 83
Title: Pope
Organization: Roman Catholic Church
Residence: Vatican City
Country of citizenship: Germany 
Marital Status: Single

Information about Pope Benedict XVI:
Highest earthly authority for 1.1 billion souls, or one-sixth of world's population. Staunch traditionalist deplores secularism, consumerism and moral relativism, unbending on birth control, gay marriage and ordination of female priests. Despite major gaffes (including lifting the excommunication of a Holocaust-denying Bishop and quoting a 14th-century source that declared the only new things the prophet Mohammed brought were "evil and inhuman"), appears genuinely interested in healing old wounds. In September, not only became the first Pope to visit Westminster Abbey since the Protestant Reformation, but also shook hands with a clergywoman (another first). Widening sexual abuse scandal could undermine moral authority, but increasingly willing to tackle issue head on: "Forgiveness does not substitute for justice." Stylish: Has brought back traditional red, custom-made "pope shoes" and old-school Ecclesiastical headgear.

Alain Robert [French Spiderman] Climbs Hong kong Bank

Alain Robert wants the world to know he takes his "French Spiderman" moniker very seriously. 
Famous for not revealing which building he plans to climb in advance, the French climber scaled all 27 stories of the 450-foot-tall Hang Seng Bank headquarters in Hong Kong with his bare hands, to the delight of cheering fans below. Despite not having official permission to scale the walls of the building, the 48-year-old daredevil was reportedly allowed to walk away without charges.

 "At the end of the day I am very, very sure that there is absolutely zero damage and in terms of the law, what I did now is not considered as a crime, so then that is the reason why I have been released," he told ITN. According to the Telegraph, Robert has climbed over 85 giant structures around the globe, including Chicago's Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) and Sydney's 57-story Lumiere Building, where he was promptly arrested after reaching the top.

In the past few week there’s been a lot of buzz around the next generation of iPad – The iPad 2.There are a lot of iPad Killer tab available and a lot of tabs were launched in CES 2011, but nothing can replace iPad except an iPad 2 and rumors are that it is coming very soon.

There are lot of announcements and rumors from miscellaneous sources regarding iPad2, so I thought to sum up all those in thi spost and see what do we know till now about iPad 2.

1. iPad 2 release date:
 Rumors suggested that the iPad 2 would be out by Mid Feb or March ,but nothing is for sure. We have earlier reported that the iPad 2 will start shipping in March 2011 from electronics maker Foxconn Electronics’ factories in China.
 Also we have another rumor as suggested by Kevin Rose, that iPad 2 will be announce by next 3-4 weeks. Kevin Rose, the Digg founder received information from a source that iPad 2 is going to announce with short period, possibly on 1st February 2011.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg New Home

On Mark’s Facebook page, the 26 year billionaire listed his personal interests as “openness, making things that help people connect and share what’s important to them, revolutions, information flow, minimalism”. We don’t know if these life principles were the ones that indirectly led him towards this new home, a five bedrooms and around 3,800 square feet residence located in Palo Alto neighborhood, California. What we find intriguing is the fact that this place is a rental and that it looks quite modest when compared to other celebrity mansions. CEO Mark Zuckerberg currently lives just down the street from Facebook’s headquarters, where he is said to spend about 16 hours a day making sure that our networking needs are met. And yes, the black Acura parked in front of the house belongs to Mark.

Evolution of Google Homepage [1997 - 2009]

In 1997 to early 1998, Google was still available at google.stanford.edu. The Beta sign wasn’t yet live.

 In 1998, Google was almost cluttered. Back then there was still some emphasis on “Stanford Search,” showing the roots of where Google comes from. Also, right on the front-page you could subscribe to the now extinct Google Friends newsletter. And of course, Google – with the not so pretty logo co-founder Sergey made in GIMP – was still in Beta...

Evolution of Microsoft Windows OS

It all began in Plaza Hotel, New York City on the 10th of November 1983. Two Microsoft founders Paul Allen and Bill Gates officially announced their corporation’s first and next-generation graphical user interface operating system – Microsoft Windows.

Despite the criticism on stability and constantly being compared to their rivals Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows is still the most widely used operating systems in the world. In this article, we’ll bring you back to 1985 where the very first official Microsoft Windows 1.0 was announced, and then we take a trip down memory lane to see all boot screens and desktop interface of all Windows operating system possible.

Windows 1.01 (1985) : 
Officially released on November 20, 1985, this 16-bit OS that cost less than 1MB in overall is Microsoft’s very first operating system that allows multi tasking with graphical user interface on PC platform that runs on MS-DOS 5.0.

Windows 1.03 (1986) :
Introduced in 1986, Windows 1.03 is an upgrade to its previous predecessor Windows 1.01. Entire operating system cost about 2.2Mb hard disk space.

Facebook E-mail Service Project

Back in February we wrote about Facebook’s secret Project Titan — a web-based email client that we hear is unofficially referred to internally as its “Gmail killer”. Now we’ve heard from sources that this is indeed what’s coming on Monday during Facebook’s special event, alongside personal @facebook.com email addresses for users.

According to their sources, this isn’t just a rehash of the existing Facebook messaging system with the ability to pull in outside messages and POP access; instead, it’s the first step in a far more comprehensive Gmail alternative. Tipped for eventual inclusion is some sort of weighting system – similar to Gmail’s Priority Inbox – that uses your Facebook friends information and your history of interactions to better filter out the messages it believes you’ll want to read first.

Top 5 Influential People Who Never Lived

5.Romeo and Juliet:
Not only can Romeo and Juliet be blamed for much of our ideas of the “perfect relationship” – I think it can also be blamed for a high percentage of divorces. Couples going in to marriage seek the ideal of a relationship based entirely on passion and romance, and when that romance dims (as so often is the case) they feel cheated and believe the marriage has failed. When in reality, passionate romance is not required for a healthy marriage – while respect, love, and charity is. Romeo and Juliet have much to answer for.


This is one for the boys obviously! Even in remote New Zealand where I grew up, all the boys played “Cowboys and Indians”. The cowboy was a great hero with a shining gun who represented the morality of Western ideals: manliness, defense of justice, protection of women and children. No doubt many now cringe at the lack of political correctness involved in the game and stereotype, but kids aren’t politically correct (thank God) and certainly won’t be hindered because of it. The influence of the Cowboy movie genre is indisputable an immense one. Oh – and for those who say “but cowboys are real!” – yes – but this is about the concept – not about a specific person – just as we might say Santa existed as St Nicholas, the concept is bigger than any one person.

Top 5 Undefeated Fortresses

 5. Palanok Castle – Ukraine

The castle is intelligently designed and is located on a volcanic hill which gives this castle a unique location to safeguard itself from intruders and enemies. The castle was built by French engineers and has also remained the residential place of the Royal family. The castle has also been used as a political prison. The castle is divided into low, medium and high castle where the high castle is lavishly decorated for the Royal family. Today, this impregnable castle has been turned into a museum for the people to see.

 4. Malbork Castle – Poland

The castle now is better known as Malbork Castle because it is situated in Malbork. However, the castle was built by the Teutonic Order who were knights interested in helping sick and injured Catholics in Poland. The castle remains as one of the classic examples of medieval castle and today it has been named as UNESCO World Heritage Site in Poland. The castle also holds the record of world’s largest brick gothic castle. The castle was built in 1274 and was named as Marienburg after the Virgin Mary. The castle remains undefeated till date because of its unique location. The surrounding areas near the castle are very flat and does not give any chance to the enemy to hide and therefore the warriors have ample of time to get ready and prepare the war before the enemy approaches from distance.

Mac App Store sold over millions of downloads

The new Mac app store during the launch yesterday, more than one million times. That makes Apple announced..The most downloaded paid app on the App Store was new Angry Birds. The social networking application Twitter was the most downloaded free app. The new Mac App Store launched Thursday with over 1000 apps in 21 different categories. “We are amazed by the incredible response that gets the Mac App Store,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. 

“Developers have a great job for the apps in the store and get users to enjoy the convenience and pleasure in using the Mac App Store shows up.”

A Better Class of Apps:
One of the great things about iOS is that it brought many feature-focused, simple-to-use applications to market. Software maturity often brings software bloat, so you end up with sluggish software and tons of features you neither need nor want. While many of the initial offerings in the Mac App Store also exist on the Mac outside the App Store, you can see a hint of iOS apps making their way to the Mac platform. While some apps unquestionably require many features, and there is no paradigm in simplicity, the iOS-style of app will be a very useful addition to the Mac software ecosystem. I've been using Weet (Twitter client) and Reeder (RSS reader) on the Mac for a while now, and they both demonstrate how well simple and lightweight apps can work on the Mac. Too many features and slow performance is frustrating, so a little more iOS in our Mac apps is very welcome.
