How to Enable Files Hidden by Virus on Pen Drive

My pen drive was infected and after I cleaned it with my antivirus, it showed some virus and Trojans moved to virus vault. However, thereafter the contents of the pen drive have become hidden and they won’t get 'unhidden' even after I asked the computer to show all hidden files. I "googled" for a while, but couldn’t find anything so I called my hommie Harry aka "m3katron1x" who was kind enough to show me this quick and easy way of enabling these hidden files.

1. Connect the affected pen drive

2. Launch command prompt by typing "cmd" in the run window (windows button + r)

3. Log into your pen drive i.e. "J:", where "J" is the drive letter of your pen drive

4. Type the following command i.e. "attrib -h -s *.* /D /S"

5. Go to "my computer" and open your pen drive. All your old (hidden) files and new
ones should show up now.

Here is another process I found by "googling" one day after work:
1. Open up command prompt as before

2. Now to remove virus's attributes (in order to delete it type following line by
line and execute them pressing enter.

3. F:\

4. F:\attrib -s -r -h *.* If there are any malicious EXE files those are now visible
so if unnecessary delete them too.

5. F:\del autorun.inf

6. After finishing above, quickly remove the pen as soon as possible (just after
executing del command).

7. Now your pen is without virus activation config. file. Now you can safely delete
unnecessary EXE files on it.

Let me know if it works...

Seven Steps to Rescuing Romance

Day in and day out, a vibrant relationship requires a little work and a little romance. Here, some actions and suggestions for creating romance and boosting your overall happiness.

Try one every day of the week, focus on one at a time, do whatever you like with them — but do take them all to heart.

1. Find Out What You Want
Are you meeting your partner's needs? Are your needs being met? What are they? After you know partner's needs, if you find yourselves still frustrated, realize that it's not that you can't meet your partner's needs, it's that you won't. Think about why you haven't yet.

2. Respect Your Partner
It shouldn't matter why your partner needs what he or she needs. Consider Dr. Phil's example: If one of your kids got up in the middle of the night and said, "I'm thirsty," would you just turn around and say, "Well, I'm not, so go back to bed"? The key is to appreciate your partner's individuality. Don't expect your partner to react exactly as you would; your partner isn't you!

3. What Message Do You Send?
Think about the message you are sending your partner when you don't acknowledge his or her wants. How does this make your partner feel? How would it make you feel?

4. Compromise
Know that you can fulfill your partner's wants. But by prioritizing your needs alone, you're making the conscious decision to not to fulfil his or her wants. Try talking about both of your needs and wants. Find the middle ground.

5. Don't Forget Romance
Keep in mind that romance is an important element of marriage. Your partner might consider romance as the true measure of his or her value to your relationship. Be thoughtful and try doing something sweet for no apparent reason.

6. Remember the 4-minute rule
You can predict the rest of the night based on the first 4 minutes, so make those minutes count! Bring flowers. Greet each other with a compliment. Ask questions about your partner's day. Smile; it'll make a difference.

7. Open Up
Be communicative and expressive with your partner. Remember, sharing emotions is not weakness; it makes you whole.

Can Your Flip-Flops Kill You?

Summer footwear harbor more than 18,000 bacteria, including deadly germ


By Laura T. Coffey

TODAY staff

updated 9:20 a.m. ET Aug. 18, 2009

Ah, the casual, comfortable flip-flop: A symbol of summertime, an emblem of relaxation — and a harbinger of death?

OK, well, that may be overstating it a little bit — but not by too terribly much, health experts say.

TODAY, with the help of the University of Miami emergency mobile flip-flop lab, tested some footwear and found that there were more than 18,000 bacteria on just one pair of flip-flops. Even more shocking than the number of germs were the types represented — bacteria from fecal matter, skin and respiratory germs. One pair of 6-year-old flip-flops had germs that cause yeast infection and diaper rash.

Story continues below ↓

The New York Daily News recently tested two pairs of flip-flops as well, ones that traipsed through bars in New York’s West Village, plodded through Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, rode the F, A, C, G, 2 and 3 subway trains, attended a Brooklyn Cyclones game in Coney Island and rode the Cyclone roller coaster. One pair wandered into the Coney Island subway station’s public restroom.

They found that the shoes that flopped their way into that public restroom harbored about 13,900 more bacteria than the other pair.

Presence of a deadly germ
Most disturbing of all, the flip-flops provided shelter to the potentially lethal germ Staphylococcus aureus. That’s serious, said Dr. Philip M. Tierno Jr., director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. He said the presence of this germ can be especially problematic if you have an open cut or blister on your foot, or if you handle your flip-flops a lot with your hands.

“That particular organism can give you a serious infection like a boil, or more serious, it could possess toxins,” Tierno told TODAY. “They can make you very sick or kill you.”

Tierno — also known as “Dr. Germ” — pointed out that if such shoes were worn for three months over the course of an entire summer, 93 percent of them would have fecal bacteria on them and 20 percent of them would have E. coli.

“These bacteria detected indicate obviously that feces, urine, spit, vomit, animal droppings were all present,” Tierno told TODAY. “That is what’s on the streets of a big city and in public bathrooms ... Think about what’s on the ground we walk on in New York City. There’s rat-doo and cockroaches, and they’re harbingers of all sorts of germs."

Dr. Lisa Plano, a microbiologist at the University of Miami, agreed with Tierno’s assessment of the dangers of germs on flip-flops, but said this knowledge shouldn’t inspire utter panic in flip-flop owners.

Weigh in on issue without any flip-flopping

Do you wear flip-flops on city streets?

“As long as your skin is intact, as long as you use common sense and don’t knowingly expose yourself ... you shouldn’t be alarmed,” she said. “Even though those nasty things are out there, those nasty things have always been out there — we just haven’t always been looking for them.”

Protect yourself
So armed with information like this, what’s a fan of casual footwear to do? Tierno said to avoid touching your flip-flops and your unwashed feet as much as possible.

“That’s what you do when you’re wearing these types of shoes — you’re adjusting it often for comfort, since they flop around,” Tierno said. “They are thin and you handle it more than a regular shoe to slip it over your toe.”

To help combat such exposure, you can wash your hands often and remove your shoes before you walk around your home.

You also could consider reserving those flip-flops as part of your beach or poolside attire only, Tierno said.

“I’m not saying don’t ever wear them,” he said. “They are nice for the beach and the pool and perhaps even in your home. ... My thought is they should be worn temporarily. There is a place for them.”

Real Cost of Having a Baby: $367k

Raising your $221,000 baby


Children are priceless, but raising them is one of the most expensive things you'll ever do. Here's how much it costs, along with some strategies for lowering expenses.

[Related content: raising children, family, love and money, budgeting, bills]

By MSN Money staff

Every newborn child is a bundle of joy. But you'd better have a bundle of cash on hand if you want to raise one.

Typical families, those making from $56,870 to $98,470 a year, will spend a whopping $221,190 to raise a second child born in 2008 through age 17, estimates the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (.pdf file), a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Higher-income families will spend even more. Those earning more than $98,470 will spend $366,660 overall in the U.S. to raise a second child; that figure rises to $406,680 in urban areas of the Northeast.

Though not as steep, the figures for lower-income families are just as unsettling: $159,870 for families making less than $56,870 to raise a second child.

That averages $8,882 a year for a lower-income family, $12,288 for the middle-income group and $20,370 for top earners.

More on the cost of raising children

This is no back-of-the-envelope guesstimate. The survey involves interviews with about 5,000 households, four times a year.

The cost per child goes down for larger families. A child with no siblings costs 25% more than one with a sibling, for example. As a percentage of household expenditures, an average couple will spend 27% on an only child, 40% on two children and 47% on three children, the USDA estimates. As the child ages, costs rise through age 5, plateau from ages 6 to 11, then rise again, reaching $22,960 a year from ages 15 to 17 for the highest income earners.

Sobering? No doubt. Misleading? Yes. The study doesn't take into account certain expenses incurred by some families, such as heavy medical bills or pricey private schools. It's a composite average, and, by definition, that means your numbers will be a little (possibly a lot) higher or lower. And because the survey ends at age 17, it doesn't take into account the millions of college students who are supported in part or in full by their parents. In 2020, you'll need nearly $225,000 for a private college or $105,000 for an in-state public university. (Run the numbers with our tuition calculator.)

The study also doesn't consider lost income that occurs when one parent stops working or takes off several years to raise the children during the early years -- or takes a lesser-paying job with more-predictable hours.

Before you take a vow of celibacy, look on the bright side: There are ways to trim the expenses.

The study breaks down overall expenditures into various categories and subsections. (The information is used by state agencies and court systems to determine child-support guidelines and foster-care payments, among other things.) We'll go through each of the major categories, give the total expense for families from the low to high ends, and then offer cost-cutting ideas and some tax tips from our tax expert, Jeff Schnepper.


Cost through age 17: $53,100 to $126,180

Housing is the biggest single expense of raising children, comprising a third of overall annual expenses.

What you can do

You could ignore one of the basic assumptions used in calculating additional housing costs. You could decide not to move into a larger home. The table assumes that for each child you have, you're going to add 100 to 150 square feet of living space to your home. By definition, that means you're going to either renovate your existing house or buy a new one. Go against the flow and figure out how to use the space you've got.

For many families, that solution won't get it done. Try this: If you've had your mortgage for a while and plan to stay in your home, keep track of mortgage rates and consider refinancing when the rate is more than a percentage point below your current mortgage. It can save hundreds to thousands of dollars on the loan. You can get an idea about current rates and offers at MSN Money's Mortgage & Refinance page.

Challenge your property tax bill if you think it's too high. (See "As home values sink, tax appeals soar.") The National Taxpayers Union estimates that as much as 60% of taxable property in the United States is over-assessed.

Additionally, make your home as energy efficient as you can. That means everything from replacing old and inefficient furnaces and water heaters to bolstering insulation.

Finally, give some thought to moving to a less-expensive place to live. That could mean a smaller house across town -- or in a completely different part of the country. What with median home prices in some areas topping $600,000, look into parts of the country where housing prices (and property taxes) may be a bit more manageable. regularly releases statistics on existing-home sales by state.

Teens need jobs, too
Imagine trying to find a job in this economy. Now imagine doing it with zero experience, little education and no résumé.

Tax tips

Make as much as possible of your housing costs tax-deductible. Interest and real-estate taxes are deductible. Use your home equity to finance other expenditures. The interest on debt of up to $100,000 secured by the equity in your house is tax-deductible. It doesn't matter what you use the money for.

Consider a home office. Now, you can qualify for a home office even if you do only managerial duties or simple record-keeping there. Prior to 1999, it had to be where you actually performed the activities of your job.

If you have a home office, you can deduct the percentage you use for business of all your housing costs. These include interest, taxes, insurance, utilities, landscaping, depreciation and the cost of any furniture or equipment you use in your home office. For more about claiming those deductions, see "The tax traps of working at home."

How much will your family spend?*




*Estimates of expenditures on the younger child in a two-child, two-parent family. To estimate expenses for an only child, multiply the figure by 1.25. To estimate expenses for each of three children, multiply by 0.78.

Too Tough to Live? Study: Macho Guys Die Younger

Macho-man persona a roadblock in seeking preventive care, study suggests

                                                                                                 imageTough guys who buy into ideals of masculinity are much less likely to seek preventive healthcare services, such as a prostate exam, compared with other men.

The new finding, based on survey data, reveals that such manly beliefs could help to explain the lower life expectancy of men compared with women.

In the United States in 2005, life expectancy for women averaged about 80 years, while for men it was about 75 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Story continues below ↓

"This research strongly suggests that deep-seated masculinity beliefs are one core cause of men's poor health, inasmuch as they reduce compliance with recommended preventative health services," said study researcher Kristen Springer of Rutgers University in New Jersey.

So while acting the part of a "real man" can attract fertile gals and even help a person to heal faster from injury, keeping up the tough-guy part could mean dodging the doctor's office.

The study will be presented today at the American Sociological Association's annual meeting in San Francisco.

Springer and Rutgers colleague Dawne Mouzon, a sociology graduate student, examined data from 1,000 middle-aged men who participated in the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study in 2004. The researchers looked at participants' masculinity beliefs, socioeconomic status and compliance with three commonly recommended annual healthcare procedures for middle-aged men: a physical exam, flu shot and prostate examination.

To reveal their level of machoness, participants rated eight items on a scale from strongly agree to strongly disagree. These statements included, "When a husband and wife make decisions about buying major things for the home, the husband should have final say;" and "It bothers me when a man does something that I consider 'feminine.'"

Men who strongly endorsed macho ideals were 26 percent less likely than other participants to have received a physical exam in the prior year, nearly 30 percent less likely to have completed a prostate exam and nearly 50 percent less likely to have obtained all three preventive services in the prior year.

While previous research has shown higher socioeconomic status promotes better health, the new research found that wasn't the case for the manly men.

"As job status increases among men who have strong masculinity beliefs, the likelihood that they will obtain preventative healthcare declines significantly," Springer said. "These findings provide some insight into the persistent gender paradox in health whereby men have a lower life expectancy at birth relative to women, despite having higher socioeconomic resources."

(Compared with a woman, a man's life expectancy has been found to be five years shorter and he is expected to have higher rates of 12 of the 15 leading causes of death, the researchers note.)

In fact, men with low-status, stereotypically macho jobs, such as machine operators, truck drivers and construction workers, were more likely than other participants to head to the doctor.

The researchers suggest several reasons for why macho men would avoid preventive healthcare. For instance, men in high-status jobs "do not want to feel emasculated by placing themselves in the subordinate position of patient," the researchers note. Perhaps, they add, such men avoid the doctor because they have the resources to remedy any resulting health problems.

In addition, men with high-status jobs practice more autonomy and freedom to disagree with authority opinions and so, in the same way, they may just ignore health recommendations, the researchers suggest.

To figure out the cause and to extend the results to a broader population, Springer says the study should be replicated in a sample with more diversity, as the participants in this survey were primarily white, middle-aged men with high-school degrees.

In the meantime, barring a complete removal of masculine norms, in order to increase men's likelihood of seeking preventive care, "we could flip the idea of masculinity on its head," Springer told LiveScience. For instance, a public service announcement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows men in hospital gowns doing manly activities, such as helping their son fix the car, Springer said.

12 Surprising Signs You'll Live to 100

What you're doing right, and how to do it better to stay healthy, happy, and strong for years to come
You're the life of the party.
Outgoing people are 50 percent less likely to develop dementia, according to a recent study of more than 500 men and women age 78 and older from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. Participants also described themselves as not easily stressed. Researchers speculate that their more resilient brains may be due to lower levels of cortisol—studies show that oversecretion of this "stress hormone" can inhibit brain cells' communication. Science-backed ways to cut cortisol levels: Meditate, sip black tea, or take a nap.
Exercise your mind with these memory and brain games.
You run for 40 minutes a day.
Scientists in California found that middle-aged people who did just that—for a total of about five hours per week—lived longer and functioned better physically and cognitively as they got older; the researchers tracked runners and nonrunners for 21 years. "What surprised us is that the runners didn't just get less heart disease—they also developed fewer cases of cancer, neurologic diseases, and infections," says study author Eliza Chakravarty, M.D., an assistant professor of medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. "Aerobic exercise keeps the immune system young." If you don't like to run, even 20 minutes a day of any activity that leaves you breathless can boost your health, she says.
You like raspberries in your oatmeal.
Most Americans eat 14 to 17 g of fiber per day; add just 10 g and reduce your risk of dying from heart disease by 17 percent, according to a Netherlands study. Dietary fiber helps reduce total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol, improve insulin sensitivity, and boost weight loss. One easy fix: Top your oatmeal (½ cup dry has 4 g fiber) with 1 cup of raspberries (8 g) and you get 12 g of fiber in just one meal.
Try some of these other potent fiber-rich foods: ½ cup of 100 percent bran cereal (8.8 g), ½ cup of cooked lentils (7.8 g), ½ cup of cooked black beans (7.5 g), one medium sweet potato (4.8 g), one small pear (4.3 g).
You feel 13 years younger than you are.
That's what older people in good health said in a recent survey of more than 500 men and women age 70 and older. "Feeling youthful is linked to better health and a longer life," says researcher Jacqui Smith, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of Michigan. "It can improve optimism and motivation to overcome challenges, which helps reduce stress and boost your immune system and ultimately lowers your risk of disease."
Discover how maintaining these 6 types of healthy friendships can improve your happiness and your health.
You embrace techie trends.
Learn to Twitter or Skype to help keep brain cells young and healthy, says Sherri Snelling, senior director for Evercare (part of United-Healthcare), a group that sponsors an annual poll of U.S. centenarians. Many of the oldest Americans send e-mails, Google lost friends, and even date online. Researchers say using the latest technology helps keep us not only mentally spry but socially engaged: "Stay connected to friends, family, and current events, and you feel vital and relevant," says Snelling.
You started menopause after age 52.
Studies show that naturally experiencing it later can mean an increased life span. One reason: "Women who go through menopause late have a much lower risk of heart disease," says Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale University School of Medicine.
You make every calorie count.
Researchers in St. Louis reported that men and women who limited their daily calories to 1,400 to 2,000 (about 25 percent fewer calories than those who followed a typical 2,000-to 3,000-calorie Western diet) were literally young at heart—their hearts functioned like those of people 15 years younger. "It's about not just eating less but getting the most nutrition per calorie," says study author Luigi Fontana, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of medicine at Washington University School of Medicine. Study subjects stuck to vegetables, whole grains, fat-free milk, and lean meat and nixed white bread, soda, and candy. If you cut empty calories and eat more nutrient-rich foods, your health will improve, says Fontana. To find out how many calories you need to maintain a healthy weight, go to

You had a baby later in life.
If you got pregnant naturally after age 44, you're about 15 percent less likely to die during any year after age 50 than your friends who had their babies before age 40, reports a recent University of Utah study. "If your ovaries are healthy and you are capable of having children at that age, that's a marker that you have genes operating that will help you live longer," says lead researcher Ken R. Smith, Ph.D., professor of human development at the university.
Your pulse beats 15 times in 15 seconds.
That equates to 60 beats per minute—or how many times a healthy heart beats at rest. Most people have resting rates between 60 and 100 bpm, though the closer to the lower end of the spectrum, the healthier. A slower pulse means your heart doesn't have to work as hard and could last longer, says Leslie Cho, M.D., director of the Women's Cardiovascular Center at the Cleveland Clinic. To get the healthiest heart rate, see "From the Heart Doc".
You don't snore.
Snoring is a major sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a disorder that causes you to stop breathing briefly because throat tissue collapses and blocks your airway. In severe cases, this can happen 60 to 70 times per hour. Sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, memory problems, weight gain, and depression. An 18-year study found that people without OSA were three times more likely to live longer than those with severe apnea. If you snore and have excessive daytime drowsiness or mood changes, talk with your doctor about a referral to a sleep center.

You have a (relatively) flat belly after menopause.
Women who are too round in the middle are 20 percent more likely to die sooner (even if their body mass index is normal), according to a National Institute on Aging study. At midlife, it takes more effort to keep waists trim because shifting hormones cause most extra weight to settle in the middle. If your waist measures 35 inches or more (for men, 40 inches or more), take these steps:
1. Work two or three 20-minute strength-training sessions into your weekly exercise regimen to preserve lean muscle mass and rev metabolism.
2. Eat a daily serving of omega-3s to help combat inflammation and seven daily servings of fruits and vegetables, loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants.
3. Get 25 percent of your daily calories from healthy fats—such as monounsaturated fatty acids—which protect your heart and may help you store less fat in your belly (for a 1,600-calorie diet, that's 44 g).
You get your blood tested for vitamin D levels.
For optimal disease protection, we need at least 30 nanograms of vitamin D per milliliter of blood, reports a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Nearly 80 percent of Americans have less than that. Vitamin D not only helps bones ward off osteoporosis but may also reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and infection, says lead researcher Adit A. Ginde, M.D., M.P.H., an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine. If needed, you can take a daily supplement to get your numbers up. Doctors can measure your levels with a simple blood test, but periodic monitoring may be necessary—vitamin D turns toxic at 100 to 150 ng/mL.

This is for my fellow bloggers. So I was playing around on my Dell XPS laptop running windows 7even one day after work and I suddenly stumbled across this “windows live” folder found under start/all programs. I clicked on it and it opened 'as usual"’, a colorful Microsoft windows live writer window. It allowed me to sign into my Google blog and specifically “told” me that I could use this (windows live writer) application/software to manage my Google mobile blog. First I thought, “isn't that cool. I don't have to open a browser and type out the address to my blog to update it, I could just update it right from this weird software from Microsoft.” “hmmmmmmmm!!!”

I then did what I normally do best, I googled it and came up with these facts about this very colorful and “might be” useful application.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Windows Live Writer, developed by Microsoft, is a desktop blog-publishing application that is part of the Windows Live range of products. It features WYSIWYG authoring, photo-publishing and map-publishing functionality, and is currently compatible with Windows Live Spaces, SharePoint blogs, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, Wordpress, Telligent Community,, JournalHome, the MetaWeblog API, the Movable Type API, Blogengine and all blogs that support RSD (Really Simple Discoverability).

Windows Live Writer introduces the Provider Customization API that enables both rich customization of Windows Live Writer's behavior as well as the opportunity to add new functionality to the product. Currently Windows Live Spaces, WordPress, and TypePad have all taken advantage of this API to expose additional service-specific features within Windows Live Writer.

Windows Live Writer is currently available in 48 different languages.



The final release of version 2008 was released on November 6, 2007. There are numerous changes from previous builds that are obvious on first run in this version, including:

  • New Authoring Capabilities, including inline spell checking, table editing, ability to add categories, page authoring for WordPress and TypePad, support for excerpts and extended entries, improved hyperlinking and image insertion, and a new "Paste Special" function
  • Improved Integration, including SharePoint 2007 support, new APIs enabling custom extensions by weblog providers, automatic synchronization of local and online edits, integration with Windows Live Gallery, and support for "Blogger Labels"
  • New User Interface, including a brand new design and improved accessibility and keyboard support

Windows Live Writer version 2009 was released on December 15, 2008 as part of the Windows Live Essentials suite.


PS: I think I’m going to give this a shot and see how best it allows me to really manage my Google Mobile Blog and help me better my writing skills.

Thanks for reading.

Would you wear a BlackBerry Bluetooth watch?

I’m not much of a watch-wearer. It’s a physique thing. My forearms are big, but they taper down into wrists I can wrap my fingers around. It’s not normal, and it makes any wrist-wear look awkward. Yet I very well could wear a watch if it connected via Bluetooth to my BlackBerry. Think about it. You could just glance at your watch to see if you have any new emails, SMS, BBMs, or anything of the sort. I caught this on the BlackBerry OS forum, but apparently Gadgets News wrote it up back in May. How did I miss this one? A picture of the sweet thing after the jump.

So not only is it useful in that it can alert you to messages without you having to check your pocket or belt, but it looks nice to boot. I definitely dig the analog arms. Unfortunately, as BBCool tells us, this is just a mock-up. Damn.

According to the original post, it will allow you to transfer music and video, but I’m not quite sure why you’d want to transfer music or video to your watch. Apparently, RIM is working on a Bluetooth headset to go along with it.

Obviously there’s no price or target release date for this yet. It would be perfect, simply perfect for the holidays, though.

Blackberry’s 26 Advantages over iPhone

We all have numerous good reasons to love our iPhone. It revolutionized the handheld business with its AppStore and ease of use interface. Apple (AAPL) will continue to gain ground, and further innovations to its iPhone product portfolio could accelerate its growth even further. The synergies with the Mac computers and the Apple Stores themselves, are real and material.

The advantages of the iPhone are mostly immediately visible. Its differentiating characteristics are extroverted, shouting them right into your face. For the casual observer, these iPhone advantages are very compelling when comparing it to its main rival to date, the Blackberry. However, Blackberry also has numerous advantages, almost all of which are “behind the scenes” and therefore often beyond the comprehension or attention span of most consumers to fully analyze before a purchase decision is made.

One is tempted to draw a political analogy – the flamboyant candidate with the eloquent rhetoric, versus the “boring” candidate focusing on the substance of the intellectual argument. The analogy fails in part as far as the iPhone is concerned, because its “superficial” advantages are real. However, the analogy holds as far as the Blackberry is concerned, because its advantages require a more serious intellectual analysis by the consumer in order to be fully appreciated. For this reason, it is possible that Research In Motion (RIMM) is underestimated as a force in the consumer market as well as the stock market.

Seeing as we already know the strong advantages of the iPhone, ranging from the class-leading AppStore to its beautiful and easy-to-use interface, it is about time that someone lists the advantages of the Blackberry when compared to the iPhone. Below are the top 26:

1. Blackberry can be used on almost every carrier in the world (over 475 of them). In the US, the iPhone is available on AT&T (T) only.

2. Blackberry is available in five form factors – small keyboard, large keyboard, no keyboard, flip phone, and candy-bar.

3. Most Blackberries have keyboards, so you can actually type fast and with no errors. Helps while driving, walking, carrying something in your other hand – all the time. iPhone: well…

4. Blackberry uses standardized (=inexpensive and available everywhere in the world) MicroUSB connector for synchronization/charging. iPhone has a much larger proprietary 30-pin connector.

5. Some carriers such as Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) offer unlimited international Blackberry data roaming for $40/month or less. iPhone does not. This could save you literally tens of thousands of dollars when you are abroad.

6. If your Blackberry is on T-Mobile USA, it also offers unlimited WiFi calling from anywhere in the world. This is with your existing number – in and out – so no new special number, procedure, etc. iPhone cannot do this (because it is only on AT&T; only T-Mobile USA offers this), and it can save you well over $100 per day when you’re abroad. Think $1 per minute savings, and you’re on the phone two hours per day. That’s $120/day.

7. Blackberry has expandable memory. iPhone is fixed and sold at 8, 16 or 32 gig only.

8. Blackberry has removable and expandable battery. iPhone is fixed.

9. Blackberry allows programs to multitask. iPhone has limited multitasking.

10. The newest Blackberry screen resolution is 480x360. iPhone is 480x320.

11. Blackberry allows communicating peer-to-peer via PIN identifier, circumventing the email system. No such iPhone equivalent.

12. Skype (EBAY) on the Blackberry? Yes, from anywhere to anywhere. Skype on iPhone? Only if you’re on WiFi.

13. Sling on the Blackberry? Yes, it’s free. Sling on iPhone? $30.

14. Google (GOOG) Voice on the Blackberry? Yes, it’s free. Google Voice on iPhone? Verboten.

15. Blackberry can be synchronized to multiple computers simultaneously, if you have multiple computers.

16. Multiple Blackberries can receive the same email feeds simultaneously, if you have multiple Blackberries.

17. Blackberry can sort the address book entries by company name, so you can scroll down a long list of names you don’t remember, but you just want to see who works for which company. Aside from sorting, the iPhone can take several seconds to search your address book, particularly if you have several thousand address book entries.

18. Blackberry isn’t slowed down by having, say, 10,000 or 100,000 address book entries. Try using an iPhone with 10,000 address book entries.

19. All major instant messengers are available on Blackberry.

20. Blackberry is available with multiple browsers from multiple suppliers. iPhone is available only with its standard Safari browser.

21. Blackberry synchronizes with iTunes – and every other media management program.

22. Blackberry models with 480 pixel resolution and WiFi offer PrimeTime2Go, an $8/month TV service that works as a DVR.

23. Blackberry fits as many emails in the inbox as there is memory available (typically many tens of thousands). iPhone is limited to 200 emails. Yes, iPhone has a remote look-up capability, but that doesn’t do you any good when you’re on an airplane or are otherwise out of coverage.

24. Price: Unlimited iPhone voice/data service, including unlimited SMS, is $150/month. Blackberry can be had for much less. For example, unlimited Blackberry service is offered on Sprint for $100/month, T-Mobile USA $125/month, MetroPCS $50/month, although AT&T/Verizon match the iPhone at $150/month.

25. Prepaid “no contract” flexibility: The AT&T web site says the iPhone is sold with a 2-year contract only, although once upon a time it offered a “contract-free” iPhone if you paid close to $899 up-front for the iPhone itself. In contrast, you can get prepaid no-contract Blackberry service on any old or new T-Mobile USA Blackberry handset for $65/month (600 minutes, unlimited Blackberry/Internet, but no SMS), or you can get truly unlimited-everything prepaid $50/month service from MetroPCS, if its handset selection and coverage areas are acceptable to you. That’s ONE THIRD the cost of the iPhone, and there is no contract.

26. Blackberry is an encrypted military-grade security platform, with 100% market share at FBI, CIA, White House, Congress, Department of Defense, major consultancies and major investment banks. In contrast, iPhone has security vulnerabilities. Please see this document for details as to why the Blackberry is the only platform approved for use in our national security agencies. It compares against the iPhone and Microsoft Mobile platforms (.pdf).

How Did Hackers Cripple Twitter?

How did hackers bring down Twitter?

Hackers slowed Twitter to a standstill early on Aug. 6, frustrating millions of users. For the culprits, all it took to snarl the popular social-networking site was one of the oldest tools in the Internet hacker handbook: the distributed denial-of-service attack (commonly shortened to DDoS), a method that has been used to crash some of the Web's largest sites, including Yahoo! and CNN.

DDoS attacks are surprisingly low tech. Using a network of computers (dubbed zombies) controlled by a single master machine, the hacker tries to overwhelm a website's servers. It's a brute-force approach — the network of hacker-controlled computers floods the server with requests for data until the server overloads and comes crashing down. Graham Cluley, a computer security expert, likened the attack to "15 fat men trying to get through a revolving door at the same time." The attacks do no lasting damage — user data aren't compromised, and the site isn't down for long. Once the fat men stop rushing the doors, everything returns to normal. (See the top 10 celebrity Twitter feeds.)

Adding to the chaos is the fact that the zombie computers often show no signs of being infected. Hackers look for computers with security vulnerabilities and infect them in advance of an attack. When the hackers are ready to launch the assault, the master computer awakens its zombie army, and the attack begins. Because DDoS utilizes multiple computers from multiple locations — and because hackers may use their network for only a single attack — there's no way to protect against a seemingly random array of computers suddenly going rogue. Once the attack begins, websites can try to trace the sudden flood of traffic back to the source computer and filter it out, but even that's a complex process. Internet service providers say they're rarely able to identify the master computer behind a DDoS attack.

This method of causing computer chaos has been used at least as far back as 1998, when the first software tools were developed to assist in DDoS assaults. But the attacks didn't garner much attention until 2000, when Amazon, eBay, Yahoo! and CNN were brought down in a single week by a Canadian teenager. They've been a scourge ever since and have even been employed in cyberwarfare. During the war between Russia and Georgia last year, hackers brought down several Georgian websites using a DDoS attack. And in the aftermath of Iran's tumultuous election in June, several international computer networks were trained to take down sites belonging to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

While some Facebook services were unavailable early Aug. 6, Facebook officials said it wasn't immediately clear if it was related to the Twitter attack.

10 Reasons You're Not Losing That Weight

1 of 10
By Nancy Gottesman, Women's Health

Dieting is complicated and we often unwittingly sabotage our best intentions. For instance, who would ever think that working out in the a.m. or cranking the AC might be the reason you're not slimming down? Luckily, once you've identified these flubs, fixing them is nowhere near as hard as pulling on a pair of control-top hose.

Roadblock number 1: Always a go-getter, you skip sleep to work out at 6 a.m.

What's wrong with that? Morning workouts are great—if you go to bed at 10 p.m. In a recent study in the American Journal of Epidemiology, women who slept seven or more hours a night were less likely to put on weight than women who didn't. Those who slept only 6 hours a night were 12 percent more likely to gain substantial weight—33 pounds on average over the course of 16 years! (Women who slept a measly five hours had a 32 percent chance of gaining 30 or more pounds.) Other studies have linked lack of sleep to a higher BMI and have found that it negatively affects levels of the appetite-regulating hormones ghrelin and leptin.

Detour: Don't sacrifice your snooze time—not even for an extra-long run. And quality matters more than quantity, so taking a siesta later won't help. "In a 20-minute power nap you don't get into the deep-sleep stage," says Donna Taliaferro, Ph.D., associate professor of nursing at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, who conducts research on sleep and circadian rhythms. "You need to go through the cycles of sleep over a few hours to get the restorative rest that allows your body to work properly." Bottom line: You're better off sleeping through your workout every other day than stumbling to a sunrise Pilates class on too few zzz's.

Roadblock number 2: Your favorite vegetable is a french fry.

What's wrong with that? Without adequate plant foods in your diet, you rob your body of the phytochemicals you need. They protect you against things like jiggly thighs, deteriorating arteries, and chronic disease. Phytochemicals are found only in plant foods. So if you’re among the 75 percent of Americans who eat fewer than three servings of veggies a day, you’re at higher risk for obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.

The good news: When it comes to weight loss, most fruits and vegetables are so low in calories they hardly make a dent in your daily intake. Plus, they're high in fiber (read: your tummy won’t grumble an hour after eating them, leaving you less likely to shake down a vending machine later). To maintain optimal health and lose weight, the USDA recommends you shoot for two cups of fruit and two and a half cups of veggies every day. By the way, even though they're made of potatoes, high-fat, high-cal french fries don’t count!

Detour: To kill veggie and fruit tedium, try something different: cauliflower purée (think of it as a healthier version of mashed potatoes); in salads, hold the lettuce and have cucumbers and tomatoes with a sprinkling of feta cheese; grill peaches with honey; bake an apple with cinnamon; broil a banana. Try to eat all five vegetable varieties several times a week: dark green (like broccoli and spinach); orange (like squash); legumes (peas), starchy veggies (baked potato), and other vegetables (like asparagus and beets).

Roadblock number 3: You crank the AC.

What's wrong with that? Everyone wants you to lay off the thermostat to save the planet. Here's how it can save (the shape of) your own butt, too: In a study published in Physiology & Behavior, researchers found that exposure to temperatures above the "thermoneutral zone"—the artificial climate we create with clothes, heating, or air conditioning—decreases our appetite and food intake. "At a slightly uncomfortable 81 degrees, the women in the study experienced a 20 percent decrease in appetite and ate 10 percent less than at 72 degrees," says lead author Margriet S. Westerterp-Plantenga, Ph.D., a professor of food-intake regulation in the department of human biology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

Detour: Instead of cranking the air conditioner every time you feel a little warm, learn to endure slightly steamier conditions. Hitting the "off" button is well worth a little discomfort if it helps you lose the saddlebags.

Roadblock number 4: You log extra miles on the treadmill to make up for giant meals.

What's wrong with that? When it comes to dieting, success isn't 90 percent perspiration. You can't achieve lasting weight loss via exercise alone. But a new study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that dieting can shrink your fat zones just as effectively as dieting plus exercise.

Detour: If you try the diet-only approach, you need a clear idea of how much you should be eating. Multiply your weight by 10, then add your weight again to that sum: That gives you the number of calories you need to maintain your current weight without activity. For example, 135 pounds x 10 = 1,350 + 135 = 1,485 calories. Eat more than that regularly, and your "loose-fit" pants won't anymore; eat less, and your muffin top will start melting away. But not so fast—before you burn your gym membership, read on about sarcopenia.

Roadblock number 5: You’ve got a quick-fix fixation.

What’s wrong with that? If you’re contemplating the lemon juice, cayenne, and maple syrup diet so popular with celebs, you need to know now that starvation, diet pills, and get-slim-quick products are not the solution to your weighty dilemma. The more you fall for quack diets and potions, the harder it becomes to lose weight the next time around. You go off your diet (or diet pill) and the weight comes back—sometimes faster than you lost it—and can leave you heavier than you were when you started!

The fr-enemy diets: Recent research gave the Atkins Diet a modest nod over other popular diets. But the overall results of this JAMA study (which weren’t trumpeted in the media) actually found that none of the most popular diets of the past few years works! Average weight loss after a year on the high-protein Atkins Diet was 10.4 pounds. The low-fat Dean Ornish eating plan: a paltry 4.8 pounds. The low-carb Zone diet: only 3.5 pounds! Most of the weight was lost in the first two months, then regained over the next 10.

More promise breakers: Don’t waste your money on weight-loss products or OTC diet pills, either. Americans spend more than $35 billion on diet foods and drinks, books, drugs, medical treatments, and commercial weight-loss chains annually. Do you think if any of these actually worked we’d keep spending year-in, year-out?

Detour: Three to four pounds are worth an entire year of self-sacrifice? Come on! Legit studies backed by the National Institutes of Health show that you can achieve long-term weight loss only by reducing your calorie intake and increasing your physical activity. No more truthful equation was ever written. Many studies have shown that you can lose about a pound a week by eating 500 fewer calories a day, eventually resulting in weight loss of 15 percent of your total body weight.

Instead of starving yourself or wasting your hard-earned cash, try these actions:

* Reduce your calories by substituting refined carbs with whole grains like brown rice and quinoa.
* Eat fruit at snack time.
* Chew on some good fats like olive oil and nuts, and ditch anything made with hydrogenated fats.
* Take your pooch, or a family member, for a walk for at least 30 minutes every day.

To lose weight and not regain it, changes in thinking, eating, and exercise are your only route to success.

Roadblock number 6: You're shooting for a realistic size 6 instead of a near-impossible 2.

What's wrong with that? We know size 2 jeans look like they were made for a 10-year-old, but, according to a study of 1,801 people published in the International Journal of Obesity, women who set unrealistically high weight-loss goals dropped more weight in 24 months than those who kept their expectations low.

Detour: The study authors concluded that having an optimistic goal motivated women to lose more weight. And the participants who failed to reach their magic number did not quit trying to drop the weight. Could aiming for Sienna Miller's figure really help you reach your goal weight healthfully? "If you're a driven person and a lofty goal motivates you," says Blatner, "it can work."

Working on your abs? Get great results.

7 of 10
Roadblock number 7: Ever since the headlines about chocolate, you've been popping M&Ms like they're Advil.

What's wrong with that? You've heard the news: Cocoa can lower blood pressure; reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and dementia; and possibly even prevent cancer. But the research isn't as delicious as it seems. The cocoa-bean products used in the studies are a far cry from the highly processed chocolate candy you find on the shelves of your local store. "Milk chocolate contains about 150 calories and 10 grams of fat per ounce," says Campbell.

Detour: The key here is small doses. Dark chocolate, which retains more of the bean during processing, generally has slightly less fat and fewer calories than milk chocolate—plus, it's richer, so less goes a longer way. We like CocoaVia's Crispy Chocolate Bar (90 calories, 5 g. fat) or Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Stick (60 calories, 3.5 g. fat). If dark doesn't do it for you, opt for low-cal choices such as a half-cup of Breyers French Chocolate Double Churn Fat Free Ice Cream (90 calories, 0 g. fat).

8 of 10
Roadblock number 8: You think "water-rich diet" means more trips to the cooler.

What's wrong with that? Water in your glass is good, but water in your food can have serious slimming power. In a new American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study, obese women ages 20 to 60 were told to either reduce their fat intake or increase their intake of water-rich foods, such as fruits and veggies. Although they ate more, women in the water-rich group chose foods that were more filling—yet had fewer calories—so they still lost 33 percent more weight in the first 6 months than the women in the reduced-fat group.

Detour: Fill up on food that's high in H2O. Some good choices in addition to fruits and veggies: broth-based, low-sodium soups; oatmeal and other whole grains; and beans. For other filling options, consult The Volumetrics Eating Plan: Techniques and Recipes for Feeling Full on Fewer Calories, by Barbara Rolls, Ph.D. (Harper Paperbacks, 2007).

9 of 10
Roadblock number 9: You take a three-minute drive to run an errand two blocks from home.

What’s wrong with that? Labor-savers like automobiles decrease the amount of calories you burn daily. Get this: research recently showed that car-happy suburb dwellers have higher BMIs (Body Mass Indexes) and blood pressure levels than people who reside in urban areas where walking is necessary for day-to-day tasks. Oh, and the studied suburbanites weighed six pounds more. The average American now drives 73 minutes daily and uses the car for almost 90 percent of trips regardless of distance. We walk or bike on errands only 6 percent of the time!

Detour: It’s not just cars that are making us fat. Elevators, computers, dishwashers, and plenty of other machines have all decreased the amount of energy we expend daily. Saving time is great; getting chubby, not so much. We're not suggesting that you get rid of your TV remote, Facebook page, or even your new energy-efficient Prius.

Instead, buy a pedometer and aim to get 10,000 steps daily. You can burn 200 calories, and rack up a major amount of steps, by taking a 30 minute-stroll to get your morning coffee. Do this for just over two weeks and you’ll lose a pound (3,500 calorie deficit = a one pound loss).

Performing simple chores rather than hiring someone else to do them will also help you rack up steps and burn calories. For example, a 140-pound woman can burn quite a few calories in 30 minutes with these activities:

* Leisurely bike ride to the post office: 254 calories
* Weeding your garden: 143 calories
* Cleaning the house (dusting, taking out the trash, straightening up): 95 calories (if you vacuum: 111 calories)
* Bathing your dog: 173 calories
* Walking quickly to meet your friend for lunch: 200 calories

Roadblock number 10: You never think about potassium.

What's wrong with that? A recent Canadian study concluded that getting more potassium might help lower your weight and blood pressure. Levels measured in study participants were proportional to their diet and weight. "That makes sense," says Blatner. "The richest sources of potassium are beans, vegetables, and fruit, so the person with high potassium levels is consuming a lot of these foods, which are low in calories and are the most filling."

Detour: You should aim for 4,700 milligrams of potassium each day. Supplements may help you hit that target, but doctors don't recommend them for everyone. Try filling up on white beans (1 cup: 1,000 mg. potassium), winter squash (1 cup: 494 mg.), spinach (1 cup: 840 mg.), baked potato with skin (926 mg.), yogurt (1 cup: 600 mg.), halibut (4 ounces: 566 mg.), and orange juice (1 cup: 473 mg.).
