Firefox 10 is here

Mozilla has finally released the 10th version of firefox. This latest release comes with some major improvements and some new features. Version 10.0 has a number of significant features added, related to the web developer tools. This version also shows a better support for some web standards. This is the first official extended support release of Firefox.

There is a small change brought to the browser's navigation bar. The forward button will be visible only when the user navigates back a page. That means the button only shows when it can be activated. When the user clicks the forward arrow button and returns to the front of the history stack, the button will disappear again.

Also the keyhole shape is also only visible when a user navigates back a page. In addition, firefox has added the following features for web-developers. Firefox 10 has a new tightly-integrated developer panel with a richer DOM inspector and a tool for viewing, toggling, and modifying CSS properties.

How to make money through your website or blog

hey friends, are you trying to make some money on the internet? If you are going after those click2earn programs then you are wasting your time and your capability on the wrong thing. There's a better way to earn money online. The only requirement is a bit of hard-work during first few months and then you might be earning hundreds of dollars each hour. Really people do earn this much. If you want to know how just reach below and sign-up with the publisher programs given below:

If you have a blog you can certainly earn lots of bucks with your site. Programs like adsense and chitika and the others listed below pay you to display their advertiser's ads on your site or blog. You get paid for each click that is made on these ads. But beware, never ever click on these ads yourself and never ask anybody to do so otherwise you will be banned from these services. So I am providing you with a list of some publisher program policies and their sign-up link. Just go to the link provided and eaan:

5. Clicksor

Clicksor gives you not good but a decent amount for each click but also pays much if your site is a top ranking site with a  good page rank.Your site is approved with not much ado.Their intext ads help you to increase your revenue.
Sign-up for clicksor.

4. is an average site that pays you an amount decent enough.Site is approved easily.
Sign-up for

3. Bidvertiser

The pay per click rate is slow initially, but the program can do wonders if your site is a top ranking site.
Sign-up for Bidvertiser

2. Chitika

Chitika is a better option than the above three programs. The click through rate of chitika is high and gives more revenue per click. Also the ads displayed are local ads so ads on your site stand a greater chance to being clicked than ads from the above programs. This program is the best alternative to Adsense. Site is easily approved.
Sign-up for chitika

1. Google Adsense

If you are patient enough and have too many visitors on your site, then go for this program. This is the best option you can go with. The per click revenue is the highest in the kingdom of CPC. Site approval is difficult. Sites containing any copied material or adult content or sites promoting piracy are disapproved quite frequently.
Sign-up for adsense.

Lenovo Yoga -360 degrees flipping notebook- Hands on

Well looking at the picture,at the first instant, you may think that this is some calendar kept on a table . But give this thing a closer look. Its not a card , nor a digital calendar. This is a 13.3 inch notebook/laptop/tablet . Yes, manufactured by lenovo, this product was featured at the CES 2012 being held right now. With the release of some other notebooks, Lenovo unveiled this ultimate notebook called the Yoga.

As the name suggests, this notebook defines what's a flexible laptop. Its screen can turn 360's , leaving all the other notebook's behind that come with cool screen features . The screen is touch sensitive and the machine is loaded with windows 8 and is expected to arrive during the mid or late-mid time of the year.

The notebook has sensors that sense the rotation of the screen and turn the screen view upside down, to make the view straight on the opposite end.
Now you must be thinking - what about the keyboard when the screen is turned 360 degrees. Well, lenovo has the answer to your curiosity. As and when the screen is rotated, the keyboard and mouse turns off, thereby preventing and false clicks or keystrokes. Also the keyboard keys come with double paint layer on the characters printed on the keys. And the keyboard is at a level bit lower than the rest of the body surrounding it, thereby preventing and damage to the keys.

Experts are predicting that the notebook will come with a 256GB SSD and 8  GB of RAM, and 8 hrs of battery life, while the processor might be the intel's next-gen ivy -processors.
