Google Working on Voice Recognition for All Browsers [Speech Recogniti...    
May 26, 2010, 11:00 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

In some ways it seemed inevitable, but in other ways, it's still an awesome idea. InfoWorld reports that Google is building speech recognition technologies for browsers, and not just their own Chrome—all browsers, as an "industry standard." Beyond making certain searches easy to fire off with a spoken phrase, voice recognition might also give the web a whole new class of webapps that listen for audio cues.

January 25, 2010, 12:30 pm | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Linux/Live CD/DVD: It's one of the five features we desperately want in Ubuntu: a video editor that the average user can stitch together simple movies with. OpenShot 1.0 is mostly there. That's not to say the interface has much polish, or that you don't have to install non-free multimedia codecs in your Linux system beforehand.
