Apple OS X 10.7 Lion – This weeks feature (FileVault 2)

July 28th, 2011 No comments

Full disk encryption

FileVault now encrypts the entire drive on your Mac, helping keep your data secure.

Strong encryption

FileVault 2 uses XTS-AES 128 encryption to secure the data on your Mac.

High performance

FileVault 2 encrypts and decrypts your data on the fly with an imperceptible performance impact.

Optimized initial encryption

The initial encryption is designed to be fast and nonintrusive. FileVault 2 quickly encrypts the entire drive live, so you can continue to work as it encrypts. It’s also designed to relinquish processor cycles to higher-priority user tasks like copying files or browsing.

Instant wipe

With FileVault 2, instant wipe removes the encryption key from your Mac instantaneously, making the data completely inaccessible. Then your Mac performs an entire wipe of the data from the disk.

External drive support

FileVault 2 supports encryption of external USB and FireWire drives. and that’s awesome to have it without a mac products just plug any of your external Hard drive USB or NAS and good to go.


Few Applications are Gone from Mac OS X Lion 10.7 :

July 22nd, 2011 No comments

A number of features in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion “not only won’t be updated, they’re being dropped entirely.

One of the most interactive and useful application which has been taken off for me from Lion was Frontrow and Rosetta, and also wound like to highlight that it stopped shipping Java as a part of OS X with the advance Lion. Users will still be able to download and use it. but its not a part of the default system anymore.

In regard with Apple Frintrow I’m assuming they are planning to come up with media center software for the Mac and seems like to be  warning to Windows Media Center Edition. Good Luck Apple. and am waiting for it.



Industry’s First Independent Wi-Fi Interference and Capacity Testing by Tom’s Hardware Reveals Ruckus Consistently Outperforms Others

July 19th, 2011 No comments

SUNNYVALE, CA – July 18, 2011 – Ruckus Wireless today announced that its ZoneFlex midrange Smart Wi-Fi system performed up to 10 times faster than higher end competitive wireless products from Cisco, Aruba, HP and others, in the industry’s first independent Wi-Fi interference and capacity tests released by Tom’s Hardware, one of the Internet’s premiere resources for unbiased reviews, news and information on technology.

According to Tom’s Hardware, the wireless LAN testing was developed to determine how advanced Wi-Fi capabilities affect real-world wireless performance at different distances and within high-density environments when wireless interference is introduced. In nearly every Wi-Fi test, Ruckus delivered demonstrably faster and more consistent performance over competitive products. Ruckus did not pay for the Tom’s Hardware testing or influence the results.

“Given the insane number of wireless-only smart phones, tablets and laptops hitting networks today, our readers must now deal with new Wi-Fi issues such as interference and higher client capacities,” said Chris Angelini, worldwide editor-in-chief of Tom’s Hardware. “We were unable to find any definitive or comprehensive testing in this area, so we decided to give give readers a first-hand view of how the best Wi-Fi products we could find would actually perform in a real world environment when lots of users try to connect and interference is present. We knew this would be a difficult to get done but, after months of work, we were able to build a reliable test bed that let us clearly determine if advanced Wi-Fi capabilities really have an impact on performance. They do.”
