Germany: Billed as a global first, a laptop allowing users to open files, play music and view pictures using just the power of their eyes was turning heads Wednesday at the CeBIT, the world’s top tech fair.
The otherwise unremarkable laptop integrates cutting-edge “eye tracking”technology by Swedish firm Tobii that follows the movement of the user’s eyesand allows him or her to operate menus and select icons.
The prototype is also good for the environment as it recognises when you are not looking at it and automatically goes into screen saver mode, saving energy, Tobii says. It restarts as soon as the user glances at the monitor again.
“It’s definitely going to be in the laptops of the future,” said Anders Olsson from Tobii. “You can do pretty much anything you would do with your normal laptop.

The world will run out of Internet addresses “within weeks”, according to one of the founding fathers of the web.
Vint Cerf, who helped create the web by connecting computers using Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, said it was his “fault” that the 4.3 billion addresses created were running out, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
“I thought it was an experiment and I thought that 4.3 billion would be enough to do an experiment,” Cerf, who is Google’s vice president and “Chief Internet Evangelist”, was quoted as saying in an interview.
In 1977, Cerf created the web protocol IPv4, which connects computers globally, as part of an experiment while working with the US Department of Defense. He said he never expected his experiment “wouldn’t end”.
“It doesn’t mean the network stops, it just means you can’t build it very well,” Cerf said.
IP addresses are the unique sequence of numbers assigned to each computer, website or other internet-connected devices. They are not the same as website domain names.
The overwhelming number of devices now accessing the internet means the addresses are running out fast.
To resolve the crisis, an updated protocol for the Internet, IPv6, currently being planned by the industry, will create trillions of addresses.
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
With the help of HAARP, environmental conditions can be altered to a massive level. Continuous rains bringing FLOODS and even EARTHQUAKES can be brought in the scenario.
Pakistan Airforce got the latest generation of American radar system. The TPS-77 radars from Lockheed Martin Corporation “incorporate the state-of-the-art technology and belong to the latest generation,” said a PAF statement.
The TPS-77 radars, handed over to the PAF at a ceremony in southern Pakistani city of Karachi, have the capability to provide valley coverage and long-range detection capabilities.
“With the induction of these systems, Pakistan will have the capability to curb the drug traffickers’ unrestricted movement into the borders from its neighbouring countries,”
