There are number of Scoundrel Facebook applications which steal your personal data and use them for their malicious purposes, like forcing to take part in surveys, sending you the spam mobile phone messages, e-mails and selling all the contacts database to the unwanted advertisers and so on.
Many of the applications starts by making promise to show some shocking photo / picture or video.
And then, you are redirected to the page for that application where you need to authorize that application by using your personal data.
After authorizing it, the application owner gets full access to your personal information and then they can use it in their way.
The applications also posts link to the same video onto your profile, so that your friends will also get trapped by seeing it.

While writing anything in the Mozilla Firefox address bar, it does a look-up for an accurate domain match and if something gets found, the website is opened accordingly.

Most latest versions of Firefox (versions greater than 3.6) comes with the feature that their new tabs are opened in adjacent locations, just next to the present / working tab. And Similarly, when you hit on a link gets opened in its adjacent one.
But when we open some new tab by either visiting the File > New Tab or by hitting CTRL+T , then the new tabs gets appended at the right end side of the browser.
Well, this is a nice feature, because the adjacent related and working tabs improves our browsing experience. But if you want new tabs to be opened at the right-end corner as done by clicking the CTRL+T, you can do that as well. The procedure for implementing it is described below.

Usually to listen any Hindi Song from some movie, people either download it from some free music sharing website or try to find it on YouTube.
But now Google music has changed the way to to listen the bollywood songs.
After partnerships with Saavn.com and In.com, Google has launched a portal for the Indian Music, where poeple can listen to their favorite songs, almost from all the bollywood movies, a few hollywood movies (e.g. titanic), and individually composed music albums.
It is very easy to find any specific song in Google Song Listening Service. You can apply the filters like movie title, song name, actors’ name, singer’s name, and so on. You can listen to any song online at this page no matter how old or new it is.
Tip: You can use “new songs” query, to see the list of songs, sorted by the release dates.
The only disadvantage of it is, at present the music streaming is done by Flash, which makes it useless for the digital devices like PDA, Smartphones / mobile phones (Where flash is disabled).
However the phones having support of flash could use this service.
As it’s only acting as a search engine for the music, so no playlist support is provided yet. Moreover it is still in the Google Labs, and some more features may be added soon for the public releases.
Till then, enjoy online listening to Hindi Bollywood Music on your Phone or Computer/Laptop.
