Since I wrote about Free Mobile Phone Tracking, I have been getting queries from a lot of users on “how to track a mobile phone by just having it’s number?” This can be either malicious or well intentioned. But before we go into the details about all those websites which claim to track cell phones by just inputing a number, I would like to discuss few things.
Ethics of Cell phone tracking
Tracking someone else’s phone constitutes a major invasion of privacy, no doubts about it. This is irrespective of your intention being good or bad. Think again if this is the only way out for you, [...]
The Inspiron M101z 11.6-inch laptop from Dell has netbook-like dimensions and weighs less than four pounds yet sports a fast Athlon processor, a couple of gigabytes of memory and a good-sized hard disk drive. There’s also the promise of over six and a half hours battery life from its standard 6-cell battery, a full-width keyboard, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wireless N connectivity and a USB port that can be used to power connected devices, even when the laptop is not switched on.
Within its portable 11.5 x 8.07 x 0.95 inch frame, the Inspiron M101z packs a Single Core AMD Athlon II Neo K125 [...]
The 3D craze continues to find its way into the cell phone market. Sharp has today announced plans to launch a smartphone that features both the 3D screen (pictured) and the 3D camera the company unveiled earlier this year. While this doesn’t come as much of a surprise, a Sharp representative today stressed the phone will be available by year end – globally.
Commanding a market share of about 25%, Sharp leads the cell phone industry in its home market of Japan but has been rather cautious in selling phones internationally in the past years. In the smartphone segment, the company has (even [...]
MSI’s back with a pair of new notebooks that combine the power of Intel Core i5 CPUs with good portability. These notebooks rock a Core i5-450M CPU along with Intel GMA HD GPU chipset. The rest is pretty standard with 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, HDMI out, webcam and an assortment of ports. The P600 comes with an 8-cell battery and costs $829 where the S600 instead has a 4-cell but rings in at $799.

In 2009, Chris Paget showed the world the vulnerabilities of RFID by downloading the contents of US passports from the safety of his automobile. This year, he’s doing the same for mobile phones. Demonstrating at DefCon 2010, the white hat hacker fooled 17 nearby GSM phones into believing his $1,500 kit (including a laptop and two RF antennas) was a legitimate cell phone base station, and proceeded to intercept and record audience calls. “As far as your cell phones are concerned, I’m now indistinguishable from AT&T,” he told the crowd. The purpose of the demonstration [...]
Ready to climb Mount Fuji and see what the next top Japanese TV will look like? Toshiba has just outed its trio of flag-bearing displays for this fall: the Cell Regza Slim 55XE2 and 46XE2, and the full-bloodied 55X2. Inch-based dimensions are already given in their model names, but you’ll also want to know they offer 240Hz refresh rates, 1,000 nits of brightness and 9,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios on the chunkier X2 (augmented with local backlight dimming), and a 2D-to-3D conversion technology that’ll translate your stale old 2D imagery into bodacious triple dimensionality. [...]
Starting with an old cell phone a friend gave him, 17-year-old Steven Ortiz of Glendora, CA, used Craigslist to trade up 14 times over two years and eventually end up with a Porsche Boxster. Here’s how he did it.
Although Oritz’s story isn’t the first time we’ve seen Craigslist-swapping writ large, it’s the first one we’ve seen that doesn’t include any outside help. You may remember Kyle MacDonald, who famously created a website to document his attempt to trade one red paperclip for a house. It worked. But MacDonald also had a built-in fanbase [...]
What do you get when you combine some xenon, some fluoride, and pressures similar to those found at the center of the Earth? You get an ultra-battery, capable of storing more condensed energy than any other battery ever built.
The material used to make the “battery” is xenon difluoride (XeF2), a white crystal primarily used to etch silicon conductors. The crystal was placed in a diamond anvil cell, a tiny device that measures only two inches by three inches. The cell uses two tiny diamond anvils (as you might expect, considering its name) to produce incredibly high pressures [...]
Dev: Blizzard | Pub: Blizzard
The game that just can’t get here soon enough and proof positive that Blizzard still sticks by its “the game ships when it’s finished” adage. There’s a ton of us around the office who still play the ten-plus year old original game, and it’s still great — so a improved version with modern visuals is okay with us. While a lot of people (we’re looking at you, Korea) are looking forward to the online play most, some of us are story-nuts and want to see what Kerrigan has cooking or if there’s an [...]
