Just highlight the text you would like to copy. Drag it to your desktop (don't copy it, just highlight and drag). A "Document scrap" will be created on the desktop for you. They can be text or images.To use these document scraps, either double-click them to open, or drag them to where you would like to have them inserted into your document.
An effective use of this is when you use the same text over and over.How to use Document ScrapsFor example, maybe you have some information you occasionally e-mail to people and find it annoying to be constantly opening up your word processor and all the associated copying / pasting.Well, if you right-click the document scrap, and select "Copy" from the resulting menu, the info in that scrap is placed on the clipboard where you can paste into your e-mail message. You can even drag and drop the scrap directly to your E-mail body.
NB: This feature is supported in all OLE2 programs such as Microsoft Word, Outlook, Wordpad, MS Paint, Corel Word Perfect.

Dubbed the strangest clock in the world, it features a giant grasshopper and has 60 slits cut into its face which light up to show the time. Its creator John Taylor said he "wanted to make timekeeping interesting". The Corpus Clock will stand outside the college's library and will be on view to the public.
Dr Taylor is an inventor and horologist - one who studies the measurement of time - and was a student at Corpus Christi in the 1950s. He has given the clock as a gift to his former college. The grasshopper or "chronophage", meaning "time eater", advances around the 4ft-wide face, each step marking a second. Its movement triggers blue flashing lights which travel across the face eventually stopping at the correct hour and minute. But the clock is only accurate once every five minutes - the rest of the time the lights are simply for decoration." Read More

Only Japan has the broadband quality to cope with next-generation internet applications, a new study has revealed. Sweden and the Netherlands have Europe's best broadband, according to the 42-nation study sponsored by internet equipment maker Cisco Systems.
The UK, Spain and Italy fell just below the quality threshold for today's web. The study aims to highlight each nation's ability to cope with next-generation web applications such as high-quality video streaming. It was carried out by a team of MBA students from the Said Business School at the University of Oxford and the University of Oviedo's Department of Applied Economics.
They developed a "Broadband Quality Score" for each nation based on internet speed both downloading and uploading, the loss of packets of data and latency - a measure of the delays in information routing. The study focused on countries in Europe, North America, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Brazil, Russia, India and China (Brics).
Their research found that more than half of those countries had broadband connections good enough to deliver consistent quality for most common web applications today. Researchers put the success of Sweden and the Netherlands in Europe down to those countries' "increasing investments in fibre and cable network upgrades, coupled with competition diversity, and supported by strong government vision and policy". They said Japan's early commitment to investing in broadband made it the only country prepared to deliver the necessary quality for next-generation web applications over the next three to five years.
The study used nearly eight million records from broadband speed tests conducted by users around the world during May, 2008, through www.speedtest.net. Read More

Another new set of features makes web searching easier; search terms entered in the search bar at the top of the browser now instantly display potential results in real time as the search term is typed. Results are shown from user-defined search engines and websites, with rich visual content. For websites with changing content, such as items on eBay or status pages on Facebook, IE8's Web Slices allows users to keep up with the content without going to the webpage directly, accessible through the Favourites bar.

1. Your car will predict the future: Self-parking cars are great and all, but there's a big difference between features of convenience and the kinds of safety technologies on the horizon. We're talking about cars that can see into the future and react on a dime -- whether that means detecting a person crossing the street or swerving to avoid oncoming traffic. Read More

The findings, by scientists led by Xiang Zhang, were published in the journals Nature and Science. The new system works like water flowing around a rock, the researchers said. Because light is not absorbed or reflected by the object, a person only sees the light from behind it - rendering the object invisible. The new material produces has "negative refractive" properties. It has a multi-layered "fishnet" structure which is transparent over a wide range of light wavelengths. The research, funded by the US government, could one day be used in military stealth operations - with tanks made to disappear from the enemies' sight. Read More

Keep in mind that it is certainly ILLEGAL.
The technology which helps us do this is called p2p or torrents. You should download a client software like Utorrent or Azureus. After installing it, you have to get a torrent file of what you want to download. Websites for torrent files are also available, even search engines.
Eg:- http://thepiratebay.org, http://torrentz.com etc
So you need to take this site, search what you want to download and you'll get a small file which is the torrent file. Next you need to open this file with the above mentioned client software like utorrent. That's it!!!!!!
PS: Always be aware that this post is meant for information purposes only. it is ILLEGAL to download using torrents.

Go to Start/Run and you'll see a box. If a program is in the Window's folder or System32, you can launch it by typing in the name.
Notepad anyone? Type in "notepad". Explorer? Type in "explorer". How about Paint? That's a little trickier: type in "MSpaint". And for calculator, type in "calc". For an on-screen keyboard type "osk".
In Ms Excel, to break up a long cell entry into separate lines, position the cursor where you want a new line to start and press Alt+Enter.
