Microsoft Announces The New ‘Surface’, a 10.6″ Tablet, Based on Windows 8

Windows 8, “Surface

Los AngelesMicrosoft today unveiled a major tablet initiative to compete with Apple’s iPad, Google’s Android, and its own PC hardware partners. After days of speculation and rumors, Microsoft’s major announcement has just been unveiled at a press event in Los Angeles: a Surface tablet. We suspected the company might be working on its own tablet, and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed the device on stage at Milk Studios in Los Angeles today. Discussing Microsoft’s history with Windows, Xbox, and Kinect, Ballmer introduced a video of the company’s hardware products over the years before unveiling Windows 8‘s companion, the Microsoft Surface.

Microsoft’s Steven Sinofsky took to the stage to describe the hardware of Microsoft’s Surface tablet. There will be two options for Microsoft’s Surface PC, one powered by Intel’s 22nm Ivy Bridge chips running Windows 8, and another Surface powered by an ARM chipset and Windows RT. The Windows RT version is just 9.3mm thin, weighs 1.5lbs, includes a built-in kickstand, and is the first PC with a vapor-deposited (PVD) magnesium case, according to Microsoft. It will ship in 32GB or 64GB versions, complete with a 10.6-inch ClearType HD display (of unknown resolution).

Microsoft’s Intel-based Surface tablet will run Windows 8 Pro, with a thickness of 13.5mm, a weight of 1.9lbs, and USB 3.0 support. This particular version will also include magnesium casing and a built-in kickstand, but will ship with either 64GB or 128GB storage. Additionally, the Intel version will include additional digital ink support through a pen that magnetizes to the body of the tablet, and a 10.6-inch ClearType “Full HD” display. Both of Microsoft’s Surface tablets feature optional Touch and Type keyboard covers.

Microsoft says suggested retail pricing will be announced closer to availability and is expected to be competitive with a comparable ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC. The Windows RT tablet will ship around the same time that Microsoft releases Windows 8 (expected in October), while the Intel-based Pro tablet will arrive about three months later.

Hide file in an image :

Hello everyone, this tutorial will tell you how to hide the documents, the information in an image in “jpg” format.
Some time ago, some American journalists claimed that the Islamic terrorists exchanged their information
eBay auctions, hiding them in jpg images.

For the curious here’s how.
We must have the software “winrar” and of course you can create a jpg image in an instant with Paint.
We begin with put the document to be hidden in a rar archive.
Open the command prompt with the Start-> Run and type cmd.
In the screen prompt give this simple command:

copy / b? Source: nome_file.jpg? +? Source: nome_file.rar? ? Destination: nuovo_file.jpg?

So for example if the archives to hide and which must lead to the img file, are located in c: type:

copy / b? c: nome_file.jpg? +? C: nome_file.rar? ? C: nuovo_file.jpg? / / And so we will see that in c: file is created
nuovo_file.jpg that path? be displayed as normal as any other image.
To re-display the hidden file will suffice? rename to rar in jpg, or a free software called “rinominer.exe” or from the dos prompt with the command:

cd path file-> ren filename.jpg nomefile.rar
So if you want to rename the file on the desktop initially we will see:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C: Documents and SettingsAsh> cd desktop / / send

C: Documents and SettingsAshDesktop> ren nome_file.jpg nome_file.rar

appear on the desktop and see your files in RAR format, so unzip and extract the hidden content.

of course you can also hide more … 😉
