We all know Android 2.2 Froyo has been ported to many devices including HTC HD2, iPhone 3G etc. But, imagine iOS being ported to devices other than iPhone. Yes, you heard me right. Recently, some hackers managed to port iOS on an HTC device, HTC Magic. All the features of iOS works absolutely find including folders, quick app switching etc.
Everything seems to be original but it has been reported that the performance of the device is like iPhone 3Grunning iOS 4.0 and is really slow. But still this is an excellent developer in the process of reverse engineering.
According to iSpazio, the people who managed to clone iOS on HTC device said:
The operating system is perfectly identical to that of Apple, in every particular. The language set should be Chinese and is so well reproduced that seems to be a sort of port, as with Android Frøya iPhone. Technically, however, think they can not be true then porting the hypothesis of “cloning” IOS 4 remains the most plausible. Despite the enormous slow, everything works the right way.
Anyways, here is the video showing HTC Magic running iOS 4:

A lot of people (including me a short time ago) thought that website development is a job for a professional web developer who knows web scripting languages. However, with the recent advances and mass usage of website, this is no longer true. Basekit is one such app which proves this wrong. It is a great and easy to work with tool designed to build websites using Web 2.0 technologies without having to substantially code!
With Basekit, making the layout of the website has become very simple. It automatically lets you select your Photoshop images and then slices and converts them to meet the standard requirements of HTML and CSS. This is done with a very fast, robust and efficient mechanism in just a few clicks. Effectively, Basekit enables a website to be built just by dragging and dropping items which you want, where you want. The app has an environment which lets you draft out the layouts of new websites and work on multiple drafts at a time. All you current under construction websites can be viewed together in a thumbnail view. The width of the website pages can be altered and so does the column layout on a single template. This means different web pages have different columns depending on how you set them.
You can also add widgets like video, downloads, social media feeds etc. to your website using Basekit. Also you can edit your website’s CSS content and preview it before finalizing and once finalized; a single click will take your website from under construction to up and running.

Google is one of the most used services in the world today and despite all the great advantages it provides, a sour fact remains that Google monitors a lot of its users’ web activities. However, if you’re a careful web surfer, you can avoid this by taking a few simple steps with Google History. Google has different ways to monitor your web activities depending on if you’re signed in while searching or not.
When you’re signed in to your Google Account, One such way is the Web History which is used to personalize your searches. Follow the steps below to deactivate it so your search activities are not recorded by Google anymore:
Step 1. Go to the My Account page and click on the Web History link.
Step 2. Click on the Pause link on the left to pause your Web History function. Your search history will not be recorded any more until you resume the service.
If you are not signed in to your Google Account, even then you can turn off Web History function by doing the following:
Step 1. Do a Google Search and on the results page, click the Web History link on the top right corner.
Step 2. Click on Disable customizations based on search history link which will turn the feature off.
Another way you can do that is by manually clearing your browser’s cookies so that Google doesn’t have your previous search data to customize your search results.
