How to find your stolen/lost laptop


Friends as modernization is on its peak. Everybody nowadays are using Laptop, PDA, iPhone etc and chances of theft is also increasing. So, how to keep your Laptop, PDA, iPhones etc secure. I had found a Open Source Software 'Adeona' which can keep track of your laptop. If your laptop is stolen or lost you can easily trace its location and also catch the thief.





Adeona is a open source system which keep track of your lost and stolen laptop. It uses the Open Source OpenDHT distributed storage service to store location updates sent by a small software client installed on an owner's laptop. Its Mac OS Ver has built-in iSight camera which captures the image of the thief if camera is available in laptop. One bad thing is that your laptop require a internet connection to upload all its information to the server. Location information include the update time, laptop internal/external ip address, access point to which it is connected ,nearest router etc .It is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Steps how to find the stolen/lost laptop:
  • Just download and install it in your laptop.
  • Remember the password you given during installation. It will be required during retrieval of information regarding your laptop location.
  • Keep 'adeona-retrievecredentials.ost' in a safe place because it will be required during retrieval process. You will find this file in desktop and also in under program files 'C:\Program Files\Adeona'.
  • TESTING (not stolen) : For retrieval of information from the server start the 'Run Adeona Recovery' program from your computer if you just want to test the application.
  • LAPTOP STOLEN: Install the Adeona software in any other laptop and start 'Run Adeona Recovery' program from their if your laptop is stolen.
  • Enter the password given during the installation of the software in your laptop. Locate the 'adeona-retrievecredentials.ost' file of your laptop , I have told you to keep that is a safer place in previous instruction and start the process.
  • After that a file 'adeona_retrieve_results.txt' will be created upon completion of the retrieval process in your desktop under 'adeonaretrieval-08-26-2009-1653' folder. '08-26-2009-1653' in folder name refers to the date and time of retrieval process completion. So it may change in your case.
I had tested this software its really working. Below is the information, I have got during my testing of the software. Below is the format that you will also get in adeona_retrieve_results.txt :-
  • info: ========== START STATE RETRIEVE ==========
    info: state updatetime: 08/26/2009,16:42 (IST)
    info: succesfully retrieved update replica 0
    info: ======== start location data =========
    update time: 08/26/2009,16:42 (IST)
    internal ip: 120.13.420.217 //your IP Address
    external ip: 120.13.420.217
    access point: technozonebiti //acess point to which your laptop is connected
    Nearby routers:

    12 207.000ms 192.33.92.161 (rou-open-net-switch.ethz.ch)
    info: ========= end location data ==========
Description of the above statements. In the above statements you will find update time,internal ip, external ip and nearest router details.
  • Update Time: The time when your laptop information is being send to the server.
  • Internal IP: IP address is being assigned to your laptop by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) when the laptop was connected to the internet.
  • External IP: IP address is being assigned to your laptop by the ISP (Internet Service Provider) when the laptop was connected to the internet. Basically internal and external both are same.
  • Access Point: The access point used to connect your laptop to internet.
  • Nearby Routers: The routers that are nearer to the internet network your laptop is connected to.

To trace the IP Address location:
  • Just put the Internal Ip you got from the adeona_retrieve_results.txt file into the text field below and click search, you will get the details of the ip address along with a map or search the ip address with any ip geolocation service to retrieve the location of ip address from where your stolen laptop is being connected to internet.


Enter IP Address:

By the help of this open source software you will easily trace your laptop location. If exact location cannot be found, atleast you have an idea about the locality where you will find your laptop. After that you may contact cops for catching the thief.

India launches Bhuvan, rival to Google Earth

India has launched a rival to Google Earth, the search engine's hugely popular satellite imagery service.

The online tool, dubbed 'Bhuvan' (Sanskrit for Earth), has been developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro). Its debut comes as India redoubles its efforts to reap profits from its 45-year-old state-sponsored space programme, criticised by some as a drain on a country where 700 million people live on $US2 a day or less.

The new site also follows in the slipstream of the country's first moon probe, Chandrayaan-1, which successfully reached the lunar surface last November.

Bhuvan uses a network of Indian satellites to create a high-resolution, birds-eye view of India that is accessible at no cost online and will compete with Google Earth.

How to insert data into oracle database using java program

Oracle CorporationImage via Wikipedia

Hey friends I am here to help you. In this tutorial we will see how to insert data into oracle data base using java program/application.

Prerequisites:
  1. All configuration must me done to connect java

    Java (programming language)Image via Wikipedia

    application to oracle before starting this task. As described in my previous tutorial 'How to connect java application with oracle database'.
Steps:
  1. First start your oracle database and create a table of your choice. eg - create table student (id number(3), name varchar2(30),class number(2),marks number(3));
  2. Now open IDE and write down the java code for the application which will connect to the oracle database and enter the data to the specific table.
  3. After compilation and execution. You will get data inserted in the database.
Source Code for 'Inserting data into oracle database using java program/application':

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Statement;

public class InsertRecord {

public static void main(String[] args) {

String driver="sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver";
String cs="jdbc:odbc:connect_oracle";
String user = "system";
String pwd = "tom";
String sqlstmt="INSERT INTO STUDENT VALUES(1,'Steve',5,70)";
Connection con = null;
Statement st = null;
try
{
Class.forName(driver);
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
System.out.println("Driver loaded");
try
{
con=DriverManager.getConnection(cs,user,pwd);
System.out.println("Connected to the Oracle Database");
st = con.createStatement();//creates a Statement object for sending SQL statements to the database.
int updatecount=st.executeUpdate(sqlstmt);//return either the row count for INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE statements, or 0 for SQL statements that return nothing
System.out.println(updatecount+" row inserted");
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
try
{
st.close();
con.close();
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
}//main()
}//class()

Output:

Driver loaded
Connected to the Oracle Database
1 record inserted


In my next post I will discuss about how to add interactively multiple records to the oracle database. Till then have a good time.

World's First 34-Nanometer NAND Flash Solid-State Drives

Intel Corporation is moving to a more advanced, 34-nanometer (nm) manufacturing process for its leading NAND flash-based Solid State Drive (SSD) products, which are an alternative to a computer's hard drive. The move to 34nm will help lower prices of the SSDs up to 60 percent for PC and laptop makers and consumers who buy them due to the reduced die size and advanced engineering design.

The multi-level cell (MLC) Intel® X25-M Mainstream SATA SSD is aimed at laptop and desktop PCs and available in 80 Gigabyte (GB) and 160GB versions. SSDs are data storage devices found inside computers. Because SSDs have no moving parts they offer faster performance and greater energy efficiency and durability than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). A draw for gamers, media creators and technology enthusiasts, SSDs have also played a key role in the emergence of ultra-thin and light notebook PCs that are becoming increasingly popular due to their design, size and longer battery life.

All in one Wi-Fi,GPS,Bluetooth enabled Samsung CL65 12.2 MegaPixel Camera


In addition to two new pocket cameras that feature secondary front-panel LCD screens, Samsung today announced another innovative pocket camera that offers Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and DLNA connectivity.

The Samsung CL65 (about $400 available in the U.S. in September) will allow users to geo-tag photos via built-in GPS connectivity that adds specific city- and country-based location data, rather than just longitude and latitude information. Users can also transmit photos wirelessly via Wi-Fi using an e-mail address, or via Bluetooth 2.0 to compatible devices. Rounding out the CL65's wireless bag of tricks is its DLNA connectivity, which allows the camera to share photos and video with DLNA-compliant HDTVs, photo frames, and other devices.

Like the just-announced TL225, the CL65 will sport a 3.5-inch-diagonal, high-resolution touchscreen LCD on the back, which you use to control most of the camera's functions. It also offers the same gesture- and accelerometer-based interface as the two new TL-series cameras; users can control image playback or change settings by swiping their fingertip or by tilting the camera.

The CL65 has a 5X optical Schneider-Kreuznach lens (35mm to 175mm), a 12-megapixel CCD sensor, dual optical/digital image stabilization, and 720p HD video recording (H.264 at 30 frames per second). In case all of that wireless connectivity doesn't do the trick for you, an HDMI-out adapter is sold separately.

World's fastest 128GB USB flash drive !


Corsair has launched 128GB Flash Voyager GT pen drive. Corsair claims that this is the fastest 128GB USB flash drive and is able to achieve read speeds of up to 32MB/sec and write speeds of up to 25.6MB/sec. This USB drive is based on dual-controller architecture to achieve single -level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory performance levels using less expensive and higher-density multilevel cell (MLC) NAND flash.

Corsair says that the only factor limiting the speed of this USB drive is the speed of the USB 2.0 bus. "High performance is a key requirement for super-high-capacity flash drives such as the 128GB Voyager GT, simply because it is able to store such a large volume of data. The 128GB Voyager GT is nearly twice as fast as other high-capacity flash drives, which means less time waiting for your music, video or office files to copy to and from the drive," said John Beekley, Vice President of applications at Corsair to Computer World.


The 128GB Flash Voyager GT is protected from accidental drop and damage by water resistant rubber. Backed up with a 10 year warranty this USB drive is available at price of about $399 (Rs. 19,200 approx).

Trapster traffic camera app coming to Palm Pre


If you’re like the average American, you spend some forty minutes every day on the road. Increasingly those forty minutes are being monitored by speed cameras and red light camera, supplementing the traditional cop-on-the-side-of-the-road monitoring of traffic. While we at PreCentral don’t advocate that you speed or run red lights, we know that it happens, and any warning to help you drive safely and avoid a ticket is fine by us. Enter Trapster, a database of speed traps, red light cameras, and speed cameras augmented with GPS tracking and constantly updated by people like you and me. Just last month the service exceeded one million users, thanks in part to its deployment on multiple mobile platforms. When active, Trapster monitors your position and will alert you when you approach a reported trap.The good news is it'll be completely free.

How to connect Java Application with Oracle Database using JDBC Driver - Part 1

Today I will go through the basic steps to connect a Java Application with Oracle Database using JDBC Driver (Java Database Connectivity). To develop Enterprise Product connectivity of java application and oracle database is essential. When I was new to java, i have faced some problem for java and database connectivity using jdbc. So I want to make all this process bit easier for all the new comer in java and windows platform.






Prerequisites :
Steps for configuring the system and creating DSN (ODBC Data Source):
  1. Install Java Development Kit and Oracle Database.
  2. Place Oracle JDBC Driver (*.jar file) in java runtime folder and java development kit folder . eg: 'C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\lib\ext' and 'C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\jre\lib\ext'.
  3. Create a Data Source Name (DSN) required for database connectivity in windows.
  4. For DSN go to Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Data Sources (ODBC).
  5. ODBC Data Source Administrator will open. Click on the Add button to create a new data source.
  6. Select 'Microsoft ODBC for Oracle' & click Next.
  7. Fill the Data Source Name - name for the data source, Description - Just a simple description, User Name - Oracle Database User name, Server - name of the server where database is installed ,( localhost - if it is installed in the local machine or the IP if the the database is installed in a remote machine). Click OK and close the ODBC Data Source Administrator.

Now, the system is configured to run any java oracle connectivity program.You can start coding the program in any IDE or open a notpad.

Below is the source code of a jdbc program to determine wheather all your setting are OK or not. Compile the program and execute it. If the program is executed without any error or exception and you get 'JDBC Driver loaded' and 'Connected to the Oracle Database' as output then you have done all the setting correctly and you are able to connect to the oracle database through your java program.
If you encounter any problem please get back to me, I will help you to sought out the problem.


Source code :

import java.sql.*;

public class ConnectOracle {

public static void main(String[] args) {
String driver="sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver"; //
String cs="jdbc:odbc:connectOracle"; //connectOracle is the data source name
String user = "system"; //username of oracle database
String pwd = "tom"; //password of oracle database
Connection con = null; //connection variable assigned to null
try
{
Class.forName(driver);// for loading the jdbc driver
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
System.out.println("JDBC Driver loaded");
try
{
con=DriverManager.getConnection(cs,user,pwd);// for establishing connection with database
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
System.out.println("Connected to the Oracle Database");
try
{
con.close();
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println(e);
}
}//end of main()
}//end of class()


In my next post we will see how to insert data into Oracle Database through your java program.[link]

How to send file to mobile from computer using java application through bluetooth

Here is the source code for the sending files to mobiles from computer/pc using java application or j2me code through bluetooth as transmission medium.Many of us means amateur java and j2me programmer find it difficult to use bluetooth in java application as java development kit has no bluetooth library to use. As I have mentioned in my previous posts Bluecove is a J2SR-82 project meant for acessing bluetooth stack from java (java standard edition) .





So, for sending files from pc to mobile using java application through bluetooth. You must download Bluecove() and place it in both the runtime library extension folder of jre and jdk i.e "C:\Programs Files \Java\jre1.6.0\lib\ext" and "C:\Programs Files \Java\jdk1.6.0\jre\lib\ext" or the place where you have installed java under that find these two paths "jre1.6.0\lib\ext" and "jdk1.6.0\jre\lib\ext".

Before starting you must have bluetooth stack installed in your computer as mentioned in my previous post "Bluetooth Mobile Webcam - A Java & J2me based Project"


Change one thing in the code :

"File file = new File("D:/cmd.jpg");
InputStream is = new FileInputStream(file);
byte filebytes[] = new byte[is.available()];
is.read(filebytes);
is.close();"

Find this part in the code "File file = new File("D:/cmd.jpg")" and change the file path to your desired file path that you want to send to mobile.
eg: C:\test.txt

Now, compile this code and run it ....
