Gigabit speeds will get rid of these pesky, archaic problems and open up new opportunities for the web.
With Google Fiber's competitive plans & pricing, local incumbent ISPs must be watching cautiously.
When you tried to perform a search for 1+1 previously on Google, it will simply return you the answer in bold. Now, Google actually went one step further by giving you a scientific calculator for you to continue with more mathematical calculations.
McDonald Singapore has confirmed the charging for extra curry sauce. It is now official that the days of free unlimited supply of curry, barbecue and sweet & sour sauces is over. This is to discourage food wasting.

From Chrome 21 onwards, adding extensions from other websites outside Chrome Web Store is now not allowed.
We're constantly looking out for ways to make your browsing safer. To that end, we recently changed the way you add extensions that are not in the Chrome Web Store to your browser. Previously, any website could prompt you to add an extension into your browser. In the latest version of Google Chrome, you must explicitly tell Chrome that you want to install these extensions by adding them through the Extensions page.
To enable installing of extensions from other websites (outside Chrome Web Store), the following workarounds can be considered.
You may set a command-line flag that disables this feature: --enable-easy-off-store-extension-install. Use the instructions from this page to add the flag.
Download the extension file from the website and save it to your computer and then drag the file onto the Tools > Extensions page.

Google's interactive unit conversion OneBox is really convenient and cool! Performing a unit conversation search e.g. on temperature "0 degrees celcius to farenheit" will provide us with a OneBox like below, convenient for us to change the parameter as well as a different unit of measurement from the list.

One method to check the OLE DB providers installed on your machine is to create an UDL file and run it. However, if you are running a 64 bit operating system, running the UDL file will list all the 64 bit OLE DB providers installed and not the 32 bit ones.
To enumerate and show the 32 bit OLE DB providers, perform the following steps:
1. Create a UDL file with the name test.udl under the path, C:\.
2. To list the 32-bit OLE DB providers installed on a 64 bit operating system, run the below command on Command Line.
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\Ole DB\oledb32.dll", OpenDSLFile C:\test.udl NOTE: If we simply double click on the UDL file instead of running the above command on command line, it will list out 64 bit OLE DB providers by default.
More respect for the Spaniard goalkeeper, Iker Casillas. Casillas actually called on the assistant referee to blow the whistle earlier after having already gained 4-0 advantage over Italy in the recent Euro 2012 cup final.
