Free Parental Control Software - Blue Coat K9 Web Protection


For Parents who are concerning about the web content browse by their children, this is a great free tools to protect your children from accessing unwanted content. I personally tried this service and it is very easy to use and it would slow down your browsing experience. Below is an overview of K9 Web Protection:



<

Blue Coat® K9 Web Protection is a content filtering solution for your home computer. Its job is to provide you with a family-safe Internet experience, where YOU control the Internet content that enters your home. K9 Web Protection implements the same enterprise-class Web filtering technology used by Blue Coat's Fortune 500 customers around the world, wrapped in simple, friendly, and reliable software for your Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista computer.

Blue Coat's unique Web filtering technology divides Internet content into 60 distinct categories. These categories are stored in the master Blue Coat database, through which we maintain and update more than 15 million ratings of websites and domains. A Web site will fall into one or more of these categories, based on the content of the site. To meet your particular needs and preferences, you can configure the software to block or allow specific categories.



K9 Web Protection is different from other solutions for the home in several important respects:

  • Service-based filtering – Blue Coat's filtering database operates as a service. It receives and rates over 80 million requests every day, making it the most accurate content filtering database available. This accuracy is important in protecting your family, given the Internet's rapid changes and growth. Plus, there is no database to download. K9 Web Protection won't clog your Internet connection, get "stale" or out of date, or slow down your computer like other products do.
  • Dynamic Real-Time Rating™ (DRTR) – Blue Coat's patent-pending DRTR technology is a very powerful element in our solution, and is vastly different from the old-fashioned "key word filtering" that is so frustrating to users. Using a method of statistical analysis and artificial intelligence to rate new or previously unrated Web pages, DRTR can determine the category of a URL on the fly, without human intervention. However, DRTR only renders a rating when it is confident that it has reached an accurate conclusion.

    We've focused DRTR on recognizing the kinds of categories most likely to be blocked. In particular, DRTR is highly accurate in blocking pornography and other "adult content" sites. This focus for DRTR is particularly important because these kinds of sites are constantly – daily and even hourly – popping up on the Internet, and no static database can keep up.
  • Automatic updating – Automatic updates of the K9 Web Protection application ensure that you are always protected by the latest features. For example, in Spring of 2005, we added two new categories to our solution: Spyware/Malware Sources, and Spyware Effects/Privacy Concerns. By electing to block sites in these categories, your computer's rate of infection by unwanted software can be reduced dramatically. We have a variety of new features planned, and your K9 installation will automatically receive updates that include them.
  • Efficient caching – K9 Web Protection is a product from Blue Coat. Blue Coat is recognized world-wide as expert in high-performance caching and secure proxy technology. We take advantage of that expertise in K9, so your Internet experience is as fast, reliable, and safe as we can make it.

Unlike other filtering solutions, K9 Web Protection ensures the highest level of protection by building the most relevant ratings database available. Its effective coverage reaches more than one billion Web pages. With K9 Web Protection, you finally have a chance to build a family-safe Internet experience for your home, simply and easily.

P1 starts offering Wimax service in Klang Valley, Malaysia


Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (P1) today officially opened its doors for Malaysians to subscribe to its WiMAX services, branded as P1 W1MAX. Yang Berhormat Dato’ Shaziman Abu Mansor, Minister of Energy, Water and Communications was there to officiate the historic accomplishment at the grand launch of P1 W1MAX services. P1’s CEO Michael Lai said, “We are indeed proud of the fact that we have put Malaysia on the world map of WiMAX.


Today, not only is P1 the first WiMAX operator in Malaysia to open for subscriptions, but we are also one of the first in the world to offer WiMAX service commercially. We believe that WiMAX will change the Malaysian broadband landscape and the way we live, learn, work and play, and lay the foundation towards achieving Malaysia’s National Broadband Plan and MyICMS 886 objectives because of the very strong proposition of the WiMAX eco‐system known as the DNA‐Device, Network and Applications are, all in place.”

Lai also thanked the Malaysian government for having the foresight on the potential of WiMAX as a catalyst for the nation’s development, and being one of the first countries in the world to issue the WiMAX license as early as March 2007. P1 today introduced two promotional packages to meet consumer and business needs. The promotion runs from 20 August to 30 September 2008. They are:


P1 W1MAX broadband is now available immediately in the following areas: KLCC, Golden Triangle, Pekeliling, Setapak, Gombak, Seri Rampai, Sentul, Pudu, selected areas in Subang Jaya, USJ 1, USJ 7 and Subang Hi‐Tech area. P1’s deployment is supported by Intel, which recently invested RM50 million (approx. US$15m) in P1’s parent company, Green Packet Berhad.

In addition, by the end of 2008, P1 targets to extend its WiMAX broadband coverage to Petaling Jaya, Damansara, Klang and Port Klang and others within the Klang Valley; Johor Bahru; Kedah; Perak; Negeri Sembilan; Melaka and all major towns and cities in the West Coast of Peninsula Malaysia.

P1 made another historical milestone today having received the honorable status in the Malaysia Book of Records on two counts,

1 The First WiMAX Telco
2 The First 10 WiMAX subscribers

Ryaz Patel, Country Manager, Sales and Marketing, Intel Malaysia who attended P1’s grand launch today said, “This is a significant milestone in the growth of WiMAX globally. “IDC Malaysia indicated that notebook sales in Malaysia had continued to outpace desktops during 2008, with more than 1.3 million1 units sold – representing nearly 60 percent of the total available market in Malaysia. Intel believes the increasing availability of high‐speed wireless broadband, such as P1’s 802.16e WiMAX network, will accelerate this trend towards adoption of mobile computing in Malaysia and beyond.”

“The value proposition of 802.16e WiMAX is the Internet as it was meant to be: open, fast and mobile,” Patel continued. “2008 is a milestone year for WiMAX, with more than 300 trials and commercial deployments underway worldwide. Intel will continue to support the growth of the WiMAX ecosystem in Asia,” said Patel.

For more information about P1 W1MAX, please contact our customer careline at 1300 800 888 or log on to www.p1w1max.com.

The fever for Beijing Olympic 2008 is heating up, especially the Opening Ceremony on 8 August 2008. Here are some site, which you can watch the Beijing Olympic 2008 Live Online and Live. If you got any good site to share please let me know I would love to add it here.

For US User please note:

A more convoluted option: Watch video that's supposed to be online, but not for your eyes. As we've noted, for instance, YouTube has a dedicated channel -- but only for users outside the U.S. In order to watch it, you'll need to trick YouTube into thinking that you're watching from somewhere else. That means you'll have to configure your browser to use a proxy server and then redirect your Internet connection through a country on YouTube's whitelist like South Korea.

Google Knol - Another way to share your Knowledge


Google recently just announced the open of Google Knol for everyone. Since it first annouced, Google only open this service for invited user only. Now it is finally open to everyone. For more details you can check out this two blog posted by google:



First Annouced: Encouraging People to Share Knowledge

Public Launced : Knol is Open to Everyone

Official Site of Google Knol

This some brief details about knol.

Knol : A unit of knowledge.

A knol is an authoritative article about a specific topic.

Knol makes it easy for you to write and share your knowledge with the world.

Knol offers:
  • Ease of use
    All you need is an account, a name and a desire to write and we'll take care of the rest.
  • Control
    You specify the level of collaboration you want with the community. Your knol, your voice.
  • Community
    You can connect with other experts in your area of interest to share and grow knowledge.
  • Visibility
    We value and promote authorship. Great content will be visible on any search engine.
  • Growth
    Sharing your knowledge with the world is rewarding for everyone.

The Knol site has one goal: to help you share what you know.

The Knol project is a site that hosts many knols — units of knowledge — written about various subjects. The authors of the knols can take credit for their writing, provide credentials, and elicit peer reviews and comments. Users can provide feedback, comments, and related information. So the Knol project is a platform for sharing information, with multiple cues that help you evaluate the quality and veracity of information.

Knols are indexed by the big search engines, of course. And well-written knols become popular the same as regular web pages. The Knol site allows anyone to write and manage knols through a browser on any computer.

So what subjects can I write on?

(Almost) anything you like. You pick the subject and write it the way you see fit. We don't edit knols nor do we try to enforce any particular viewpoint – your knol should be written as you want it to be written. Of course, knols are

subject to Terms of Service and Content Policy to ensure a good experience for all users and compliance with applicable laws.

What if someone else has already written an article on that subject?

No problem, you can still write your own article. In fact, the Knol project is a forum for encouraging individual voices and perspectives on topics. As mentioned, no one else can edit your knol (unless you permit it) or mandate how you write about a topic. If you do a search on a topic, you may very well see more than one knol in the search results. Of course, people are free to disagree with you, to write their own knols, to post comments and ratings.

Can I collaborate with other authors?

Of course. For each knol you can choose to write on your own or collaborate with other authors.

Can I write knols in languages other than English?

Absolutely. However, it will take us some time to localize the interface into various languages. Sorry, we cannot pre-announce when any given language will be available.

Can I search for knols on a specific subject?

Yes, you can search on Google or other search engines to find knols, like any other web pages. You can also use the Search button found on the Knol homepage and on each knol to search.

How do I get started writing my own knols?

Here are some links to knols that may be helpful to you:

Basics of Writing Knols
  • Creating and publishing a new knol
  • Entering text into a new or existing knol
  • Using the formatting bar

Managing Knols
  • Listing all of your knols
  • Managing your author profile
  • Managing versions of your knol
  • Specifying settings for your knols

Advanced Knol Techniques
  • Inserting Images
  • Creating and formatting tables
  • Creating links and references
  • Working with the HTML source
  • Changing your bio/profile

Best Practices: Writing Good Knols
  • Things to do
  • Things to avoid
  • Publishing tips for authors

Knol Bugs and Current Issues

  • Indexing and search
  • Internationalization and localization
  • Stability, reliability, latency

Where else can I discuss or get help on Knol?

Several authors have noticed that there is a forum at http://groups.google.com/group/knol-users/topics where people share tips and tricks about Knol. Keep in mind that this forum is user-driven and not moderated by the Knol team (although we do take a peek from time to time to look for great suggestions...)
