Pakistan Tweetistan

The central characters of the Familygate or the recent graft scandal which has taken the media, business community and judiciary by storm are the founder of Bahria Town, Malik Riaz and the Chief Justice's son Arsalan Iftikhar Chaudhry.

The scandal broke out when Malik Riaz accused Arsalan of accepting bribes up to Rs. 400 million to help him gain influence in the judiciary for various pending cases in the court. Arsalan, however, firmly denied the allegations and called Riaz's allegations a move to tarnish the image of his family and the judiciary of Pakistan.

Riaz further alleged that he did not bribe anyone, however, was blackmailed to do so. The media also came into the limelight when famous anchorpersons allegedly helped the business tycoon to clear his public image by planting an interview on a private channel. It is also being alleged that Riaz has bribed some of the most prominent names in journalism to gain influence in the media.
On June 14, 2012, the Supreme Court wrapped up the suo moto case taken to investigate the graft case and ordered the Attorney General to take strict action against Arsalan, Riaz and Salman Ahmed — Riaz's son-in-law.

Password Management

Remembering passwords is a hassal for those who are working on computers. If you have an easy password (abcdef, qwerty, qazwsx, 123456, 111111, Abc123 or a combination of your name, date of birth, your cell number, your service number, or the word ‘password’ as your password), anyone can guess that and if you have unique and innovative password with characters like ($ % * @ # <> [ - ] then you have a login inconvenience and problem to remember them.

Lately, I came across a largest-ever study on user-selected password security that analyzed the password strength of about 70 million Yahoo users says some scary things that are sufficient to make making anyone with assets online a bit nervous. That is when I started looking for password management solution for my login convenience and I found Trend Micro - a global leader in cloud security - and was amazed to see how their DirectPass manages website passwords and login IDs in one secure location and you only need to remember one password. The powerful features include keystroke encryption, secure password generation, automatic form-filling, confidential notes, and a secure browser. Catering to the growing needs of content security and threat management, Trend Micro is offering sound solutions that make the cyber world secure for businesses and consumers to exchange digital information and all forms of data for last two decades.

I can say with experience that password management is essential in present time. Personally speaking, I learnt my lesson the hard way, I used to have same password for all my accounts just to keep the things simple (I am not very good at remembering so many passwords). But now I know better. Password management is the best solution for me and all those who are working online and have their assets online. I suggest you have a look at Trend Micro and see what they are offering and how DirectPass can work for your convenience and online security. It is alwas better to be secure and have a peace of mind.

Twitter widens window to links in tweets

Twitter added Wednesday to the array of online content people could preview in messages without having to click on links included in tweets.

People who access the one-to-many text messaging service online at or were provided more opportunities to "expand tweets" with looks at pictures, videos, news article headlines or other content.

"You've probably expanded tweets before to play videos from YouTube or see photos from Instagram," Twitter product team director Michael Sippey said in a blog post.

"Now, a diverse and growing group of new partners like the The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC's Breaking News, and TIME also deliver rich content inside tweets containing a link to those websites."

Expanded links to articles posted in participating publications such as Der Spiegel or the San Francisco Chronicle will show headlines and story introductions, and sometimes the Twitter accounts of the writers or publishers.

Previews will also be available for links to video from Twitter partners such as Lifetime television network and French video-sharing website Dailymotion, according to Sippey.

Twitter said expanded tweets available at the service through Web browsers would be "coming soon" to its applications for iPhones and Android-powered smartphones.

Eliminating the need for Twitter users to navigate away to other websites gives the San Francisco-based firm more opportunities to make revenue with "promoted tweets." (AFP)

How to Write the Perfect Tweet

Researchers at Hewlett-Packard and UCLA have come up with a formula to create the most popular, most shared messages in the Twitterverse. This is how!

Optimize your computers

In this age, when (almost) everything starts at computers and people have their valuable assets stored in them, computers have become essential tools. No one, particularly those who have integrated computers in their lives and or work, can afford to have malfunctioning in computers. But still, computer crash, malfunction, slow down and so many other things happen to them. That is when you wish that instead of dismantling the work station and taking computer to costly mechanics or calling them in and waiting, you could get them working in a jiffy. What should be done? Best would be to have a users friendly interface that allows you to secure and optimize your own computers. Fortunately, such solution is available today.

I was looking for some efficient computer solution for myself when I came upon ParetoLogic software that protects, fixes and optimizes your computers. I explored the neatly laid out site and found that ParetoLogic harnesses the latest technology to create easy-to-use PC security and utility programs that benefit computer users of all experience levels. The software includes ParetoLogic PC Health Advisor, ParetoLogic EasyFileViewer, ParetoLogic FileCure, ParetoLogic DriverCure, ParetoLogic Anti-Virus PLUS, ParetoLogic Data Recovery Pro, ParetoLogic Privacy Controls, ParetoLogic RegCure Pro, and XoftSpySE Anti-Spyware.

I suggest all computer users must learn and be able to take care of their own computers. Have a look at ParetoLogic and learn about what it can do for you and how. Better still click here to fix activex.

Christina Lamb on Familygate

In messages sent out Sunday on social media website Twitter, British journalist Christina Lamb has denied having been contacted for a planned ‘expose’ on ‘Familygate’ — the case allegedly implicating the Pakistani chief justice’s son Dr Arsalan Iftikhar and real estate tycoon Malik Riaz of financial wrongdoing.

@christinalamb: “have no idea how this started but can i clarify i am not planning a big expose on Familygate, have spoken to no one abt it”.

In another tweet, Lamb rubished claims that she had been approached for to “break the news”, clarifying that she had neither any knowledge of nor had spoken to anyone about the whole affair.

@christinalamb: “any purported quotes from me on CJ issue are made up, all i know is what i’ve read in the media and have spoken to no one!”

Why do people RT compliments instead of just replying "thanks"? Offline, no one would call everyone they know to repeat a compliment.
