Thankfully as compared to Internet Explorer, managing and clearing the private data including the search history and URLs of visited sites is very simplified in Firefox.
Just select Tools > Clear Private Data
There’s also a shortcut (shift+ctrl+delete) for the same purpose , a dialog box will open giving you options for the level of data you want to delete
On a public computer you can safely select all the options and click on “Clear Private Data Now” and all the browsing information from firefox will be deleted.

The is another very neat option in Firefox by which you can set it to automatically delete the private data on the closing of browser, select
Edit > Preferences > Privacy and check the box of “Always clear my private data when I close the browser”, here too by clicking on Settings you can customize the things which are automatically deleted.

Installed it a few days ago, Yahoo! has done a good job with the interface and functionality of its new mobile bundle product , Unlike the Google ‘s email client for mobiles Yahoo Go Mobile also integrates Flickr, Weather updates and the oneSearch feature.

The screen navigation, rendering and scrolling is a bit slow as compared to the Gmail’s mobile client, however the features of Flickr and the option to add your selected widgets is good, when I checked there were not any widgets available other than the official one’s from Yahoo! but this collection will definitely grow over time.
Localized versions of Yahoo! Go 3.0. are also available for many countries.

I have a two PC setup at home, one has a on-board realtek network card ( running windows XP) and the other one has a D-link Lan card ( running RHEL 4), I have been using internet from Linux machine by configuring Win XP as a gateway with out any problem

Few days back I bought a new 3Com LAN card for my XP machine (as I wanted to connect to the DSL modem with a Ethernet connection instead of a USB connection) and on connecting the computers via the new card I found that the Internet browsing on the Linux machine had become extremely slow, and there was a high packet loss when pinging the computers , that was something really odd for LAN connection of two computers sitting right beside each other

I suspected that there was some fault with the new 3Com card , however after a bit of tweaking the problem was resolved by setting the media type of the LAN card to 10 Mbps , apparently by default the type was set to auto causing the windows to try to use the full 100 Mbps duplex mode which the other (D-link) card in linux machine did not support, resulting in a conflict and data loss over LAN.
So If you are facing a similar problem than make sure to check that the data transfer speeds on both LAN card are set to match each other.

In windows you can configure the parameters of a LAN card by opening the device manager and selecting the advanced tab in the dialogue box for the properties of the appropriate LAN card or Ethernet adapter.

It has been a few months since my old Kingston 128MB USB drive finally gave up, leaving me without any portable way of transferring data till I found that that my nokia mobile phone , having a microSD card ,could also act as a full-fledged USB or memory drive.
I have a Nokia 5700 Mobile loaded Symbian S60 that also came with a 1GB microSD card.

When you connect the mobile via the USB cable to the computer than a prompt pop’s up at the Mobile screen asking the mode than you want to use and here if you select the “Music or Data Transfer “mode than your mobile’s memory card is detected by the computer as a regular Thumb or USB stick appearing as a removable disk in “My Computer” supporting all the function of normal memory sticks, however you will notice that the data transfer from this card is pretty slow as compared to the regular USB sticks, specially the part of writing onto the card ( May be this setup is not USB 2.0 Compliment ??)

Your Mobile keeps functioning as usual with just one limitation that during the connection with computer you cannot access the things that you have stored in the memory card from the mobile phone itself.
The Mobile Memory card already has a folder structure however you can store just about any file at any place in the memory card (as long as the space permits you) and it wont have any issues when you use the card in normal mode via the mobile, just don’t store any viruses 🙂
This would also work with other Models of Nokia having similar OS ( Symbian S60 in my case) and having a micro card.

Once you open the music player than even after you stop playing the music the Music player in Nokia 5700 keeps on running in the background and hogging the memory (you can check this by holding-on to the menu button and it will show the music player as a running application)

The option of exiting the music player is hidden deep behind the menus (and no rational person can find it )

So here is the procedure of shutting down the music player in Nokia 5700 mobile without restarting your phone.

1. Open Now Playing
2. Open Equalizer
3. Highlight any equalizer other than ‘default’ and select options -> edit
4. From edit choose options -> exit

I wish /hope that Nokia puts the option of exiting the music player at a bit more easily accessible place in future upgrades.
