Still, this should not considered a ultimate weapon, and network administrators should not rely on the firewalls only. Encapsulation is the basis of networking. As soon as you let a single protocol out, tunelling allows to let anything go through this protocol, and thus through the firewall. This paper demonstrates how to encapsulate any TCP-based protocol (SMTP, POP3, NNTP, telnet...) into HTTP, thus bypassing the firewall protection/censorship (depending on your point of view) A word of warning: The problem

Experimental Real-Time Location Tracking Comes To Google Latitude On Android Google has just released a series of updates for their Google Maps Android application. Two of these updates are useful: Place page reviews and the ability to filter search results. But one of them is really interesting: real-time location updating in Google Latitude. To be clear, this feature is an experimental one that Google is trying out. But this new real-time feature is meant for short-term usage if you’re going to meet up with a friend, for example.

Free Book Free Book Search's document search tool is designed to return the maximum number of online documents from specific types of websites as per the users' choice. We have made this search portal very robust so that using the tools on this page, if a document exists somewhere - even hidden away - on the Internet, you will find it here. This is one of the only online tools that will actually find books and documents on non-book sites. Most other tools sift through digital libraries or known locations of e-books and documents, our searches also scan private collections that are normally hidden. There are a few methods for finding documents, and we have tried to incorporate all of them in one place by using the 'radio buttons'. You may need to try using a few of the search techniques to find what you are looking for, and you may need to sift through a number of documents. We have included a military search to search official military sites.
