The V3C definition of the media query is:

A media query consists of a media type and zero or more expressions that check for the conditions of particular media features.

The group of hackers known as Anonymous, posted a file and claimed to have a total of 12 million numbers for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices,iPhone. They said their goal in releasing part of the data was to prove that the F.B.I. was using device information to track people.

While the leaked identification numbers appeared to be real, security experts said the release posed little risk. They said that without more information on the devices’ owners — like e-mail addresses or date of birth — it would be hard for someone to use the numbers to do harm.

Free Wi-Fi service is becoming an important tool for operators in maintaining quality mobile service during a time of skyrocketing data traffic, congested mobile networks and, for travelers, costly roaming charges.

Public Wi-Fi networks have sprung up in many big cities. According to Informa, a research firm, the number of Wi-Fi hot spots worldwide will reach 5.8 million by the end of 2015, up from 800,000 in 2010. Eight of the world’s 10 biggest mobile operators are using Wi-Fi to offload their cellular data traffic.

Nexus 7 can hit the 8M barrier by end of the year, twice as expected

Google could sell between six million and eight million of its $199 Nexus 7 tablets by year’s end, according to a new estimate. That’s more than double the three million Google expected to sell by the end of 2012, after putting the device on sale in July and seeing the 16GB version sell-out briefly.

By comparison, the $199 Kindle Fire, which went on sale last fall, has sold about 5 million, according to an average of estimates by several analyst firms.

A Gartner Inc. spokeswoman estimated the Nexus 7 so far has sold 1 million to 1.5 million units in about five weeks, based on reports from suppliers. Carolina Milanesi said the Tech-thoughts estimate of 6 million to 8 million Nexus 7 sales by year’s end is higher than Gartner is expecting, but she didn’t elaborate.

The new app is called version 3.1 and it has plenty of new features to get customers excited. One of the most significant improvements is that it comes with a completely new interface, something that will clearly distinguish it from the previous versions of its app. It can now be downloaded from the App Store and here are a few of the new features that users can expect to enjoy.

There are an impressive 180 new updates according to Isaac Keyet of WordPress’ Mobile Projects division. This figure alone should prove very exciting to those who use WordPress, even if they only use it intermittently. The most obvious change is the interface, which has been completely updated. There is a new Reader section, that will allow users to keep up to date with blogs and topics that they are interested in.

Recalibrate laptop battery

If your laptop battery’s life has gotten shorter over time, The New York Times recommends recalibrating it:

…the calibration process basically involves first turning off your screensaver and other power management settings that put the computer to sleep. Then fully charge the laptop before letting it run all the way down until the computer shuts off automatically. Once the battery has fully drained, you can charge it back up again and restore your screensaver and power management settings.

If calibration doesn’t help, it’s time to purchase another battery. The Times recommends finding discounts at laptopsforless.com and batteries.com. Just make sure you pick up the right one for your model lappie.

Security vulnerability: 8 years old bug in PHP that shows the source code

The other day, the PHP developers found an 8 years old bug hidden in all versions of php library since a commit made in 2004.The bug in question affects only PHP using the Apache mod_cgi mode. The Apache+mod_php and nginx+php-fpm are not affected

So the bug comes up when you add a url without any parameters ‘=’ sign like ‘?-x’, which makes a dump of the source code.This does not affects the functionality of the website, but the information can be exploited by hackers.

PHP stuff fixed now this bug in the recent 5.3.12 and 5.4.2 updates but as mod_cgi is something that not to much sites are using, the bug does not affect all the websites using PHP.

Kindle fire vs iPad – Did I mention that Kindle Fire costs 199$

There are quite a few reasons why the Kindle Fire is better then the iPad.Lets´s start with the price. Kindle Fire is $199 while the cheapest iPad is $499. There’s more reasons the Kindle Fire is better, already.

Obviously, if the device was terrible, the price savings wouldn’t matter. But — at least on first impression — the Kindle Fire is solid, fast, and smooth. In fact, it seems to be just as nice, if not nicer than the iPad.

Kindle Fire has flash support

Flash is not dead. It’s baked into many web sites, and I’m talking about real web sites, not just small and unimportant websites. There are quite a few educational websites that are using flash as their engine

Are You Ready for HTML 5?

HTML 5 is a new specification being developed to move HTML forward in the realm of Web applications. It was initially being developed by a group independently of the W3C, but the W3C HTML working group has since joined the development. HTML 5 adds a lot of great new features to Web pages and Web design and it will be exciting when more browsers support it. Microsoft has stated that they will begin supporting at least portions of HTML 5 in IE. If you want to get started sooner, Opera has had the best support, with Safari close behind, although all major browsers support total o partial HTML 5

The nice thing about HTML 5 is how easy it is to implement. You use the HTML 5 doctype, which is very simple and streamlined:

<!doctype html>

20+ useful Apps for Android, get the best of your device using Android Apps

The 20 apps that made the cut for this list are the ones that are universally liked by users, or have had a solid history.The Android Market may not have as many apps as the iPhone App Store yet, but there are still more than enough to be overwhelmed. Most of them are free, but some cost a few bucks.

If you’re a long-time Android user, some of these apps will look familiar, although in a few cases, I noticed that the best apps aren’t necessarily the ones that have been most popular. Newcomers are also suplling the market with good apps.

Still, here’s my list of Android apps that I can see quite useful.
