We all know how image editors work, but wouldn't you like to try a fun and exciting experience for once? Such an example is PhotoScape.

As the application focuses on viewing and manipulating images, PhotoScape itself is very colorful and "happy".

When you open PhotoScape, you are encountered by a white window in full screen, with a few sliding pictures (which redirect you to Flickr galleries once you click them), and a menu system displayed in a circle.

The menu includes a viewer, editor, batch editor, page, combine, animated GIF, print, splitter, screen capture, color picker, raw converter, rename, and paper print.

All these titles are pretty self-explanatory.

Hacker group Anonymous takes down major website

It appears the hacker collective Anonymous has struck again. This time, the hack took out and as well as several websites outside the country.

According to several internet blogs and a post on the hacker group's twitter feed, the entire CBS website was reduced to just a single file just before noon Sunday.


A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a personal journal published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first. Blogs are usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often are themed on a single subject. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users. (Previously a knowledge of such technologies as HTML and FTP had been required to publish content on the Web.)

Although not a must, most good quality blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.

Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries; yet still others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blog), photographs (photoblog), videos (video blogging or vlogging), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting). Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.

As of 16 February 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence.

The term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, "blog," was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog in April or May 1999. Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used "blog" as both a noun and verb ("to blog," meaning "to edit one's weblog or to post to one's weblog") and devised the term "blogger" in connection with Pyra Labs' Blogger product, leading to the popularization of the terms.

How to Avoid Computer Viruses

There is a war being fought, often right underneath our very noses. It is a war fought not with guns, or with bombs, but by computer viruses, worms and Trojan horses. Computer viruses have been around for a long time. They’re often hidden in your e-mail inbox, among all those offers for quick cash, a bag of diamonds, enlarging this and reducing that, even spam telling you how to get rid of spam.

A worm is a type of computer virus that generally spreads and replicates itself without relying on any actions on the part of a computer user. A Trojan horse masquerades as a benign program, sometimes one that claims to get rid of viruses, when in truth it inserts a virus into your computer.

Virus attacks haven’t attracted much notice from mainstream news media, although that has begun to change. Over the past years, several viruses of varying types, such as the “Blaster” worm virus, made national and international headlines. Law enforcement has historically had a tough time dealing with cases like these. It’s tough to track down computer hackers.

10 Legitimate Tax Deductions for Bloggers Making Money Online

I am definitely not a tax professional and you can take my suggestions with a grain of salt, but to confirm if these are really legitimate tax deductions for bloggers in your country, make sure you ask your accountant.

I have operated many businesses over the years, in fact I have never worked for anyone, but bloggers making money online is a completely different story. The potential tax deductions are often overlooked as bloggers are busy people, no doubt. Bloggers are simply sitting in their home office making money, sticking to their daily blogging routine, not realizing the legitimate tax deductions that they could be claiming.
I live in Australia and have just had my tax done by my accountant. I just thought I would share some of the tax deductions that I have used in the past. (This might not apply to you in your country)

1. Rent for Business Premises – Tax Deductions for Bloggers

Ahh this sounds scary but it is not. Bloggers making money online have got the cheapest rent in the world. I have mentioned before that I used to pay in between $10,000 and $11,000 a month to rent a shop premises near Brisbane. Now I am earning just as much money from blogging but I do not have the stress of working seven days a week and employing 15 people. (OMG that was a nightmare!)
Now I rent my Internet premises from Hostgator for around $10 a month, allowing me to open approximately 15 businesses, just with that one small fee. I also have other hosting accounts with Hostgator with more businesses (WordPress websites) on them.
Even though the renting fees are tiny compared to the income that they produce, the fees are still tax-deductible.
