Top 10 the best search engine 2011

1. Duck Duck Go

At first, looks like Google. But there are many subtleties that make this spartan search engine different. DuckDuckGo has some slick features, like 'zero-click' information (all your answers are found on the first results page). DuckDuckgo offers disambiguation prompts (helps to clarify what question you are really asking). And the ad spam is much less than Google. Give a try... you might really like this clean and simple search engine.

2. Ask (aka 'Ask Jeeves')

The Ask/AJ/Ask Jeeves search engine is a longtime name in the World Wide Web. The super-clean interface rivals the other major search engines, and the search options are as good as Google or Bing or DuckDuckGo. The results groupings are what really make stand out. The presentation is arguably cleaner and easier to read than Google or Yahoo! or Bing, and the results groups seem to be more relevant. Decide for yourself if you agree... give a whirl, and compare it to the other search engines you like.

3. The Internet Archive

The Internet Archive is a favorite destination for longtime Web lovers. The Archive has been taking snapshots of the entire World Wide Web for years now, allowing you and me to travel back in time to see what a web page looked like in 1999, or what the news was like around Hurricane Katrina in 2005. You won't visit the Archive daily, like you would Google or Yahoo or Bing, but when you do have need to travel back in time, use this search site.

4. Yippy (formerly 'Clusty')

Yippy is a Deep Web engine that searches other search engines for you. Unlike the regular Web, which is indexed by robot spider programs, Deep Web pages are usually harder to locate by conventional search. That's where Yippy becomes very useful. If you are searching for obscure hobby interest blogs, obscure government information, tough-to-find obscure news, academic research and otherwise-obscure content, then Yippy is your tool.

5. Yahoo!

Yahoo! is several things: it is a search engine, a news aggregator, a shopping center, an emailbox, a travel directory, a horoscope and games center, and more. This 'web portal' breadth of choice makes this a very helpful site for Internet beginners. Searching the Web should also be about discovery and exploration, and Yahoo! delivers that in wholesale quantities.

6. Bing

Bing is Microsoft's attempt at unseating Google. Bing used to be MSN search until it was updated in summer of 2009. Touted as a 'decision engine', Bing tries to support your researching by offering suggestions in the leftmost column, while also giving you various search options across the top of the screen. Things like 'wiki' suggestions, 'visual search', and 'related searches' might be very useful to you. Bing is not dethroning Google in the near future, no. But Bing is definitely worth trying.

7. Mahalo

Mahalo is the one 'human-powered' search site in this list, employing a committee of editors to manually sift and vet thousands of pieces of content.  This means that you'll get fewer Mahalo hit results than you will get at Bing or Google. But it also means that most Mahalo results have a higher quality of content and relevance (as best as human editors can judge).
Mahalo also offers regular web searching in addition to asking questions.  Depending on which of the two search boxes you use at Mahalo, you will either get direct content topic hits or suggested answers to your question.
Try Mahalo.  You might like it enough to even become a editor there.

8. Dogpile

Years ago, Dogpile was the fast and efficient choice before Google.  Things changed, Dogpile faded into obscurity, and Google became king. But today, Dogpile is coming back, with a growing index and a clean and quick presentation that is testimony to its halcyon days.  If you want to try a search tool with pleasant presentation and helpful crosslink results, definitely try Dogpile.

9. Webopedia

Webopedia is one of the most useful websites on the World Wide Web. Webopedia is an encyclopedic resource dedicated to searching techno terminology and computer definitions. Teach yourself what 'domain name system' is, or teach yourself what 'DDRAM' means on your computer. Webopedia is absolutely a perfect resource for non-technical people to make more sense of the computers around them.

10. Google

Google is the undisputed king of 'spartan searching'. While it doesn't offer all the shopping center features of Yahoo!, Google is fast, relevant, and the largest single catalogue of Web pages available today. Make sure you try the Google 'images', 'maps' and 'news' features... they are outstanding services for locating photos, geographic directions, and news headlines.

How To Hack Gmail , Yahoo , Hotmail Passwords ?

Well ,yesterday i was going through one of the hacking communities just for checking if any new hacking script has come up or not. I saw a topic named ” how to hack gmail / yahoo / hotmail ?? ” . Out of curiousity when i opened it, it made me laugh aloud . I mean some anonymous guy posting a topic like that seemed totally absurd and that too a cheap phishing technique probably used during the early ninties :)
check out what was posted in that topic..
” How to hack gmail/ hotmail / yahoo passwords!
It is possible and it is easy. This way of hacking into any kind of account was brought to my attention by my friend working in microsoft,in animation cell. u have to just…
  • STEP 1- Log in to your own gmail/ yahoo or hotmail account. Note: Your account must be at least 1 weeks old for this trick to work.
  • STEP 2- Once you have logged into your own account, compose/write an e-mail to: ############################# (removed the mail id which was written because ppl were actually trying it )..depending on which account u want to hack..These is the mailing address to the automated server that sends out passwords to users who have forgotten them. What you are going to do is trick the server into thinking that it is sending your password to you but it will send you the pass for the account you are trying to hack instead.
  • STEP 3- In the subject line type exactly: “userpassword retrieve” (case sensative, without the inverted commas)
  • STEP 4- On the first line of your mail write the email address of the person you are hacking.
  • STEP 5- On the second line type in the e-mail address you are using.
  • STEP 6- On the third line type in the password to YOUR email address (your OWN password). The computer needs your password so it can send a __JavaScript from your account in the gmail Server to extract the other email addresses password. This works because you are sending your password to a machine not a person. The process will be done automatically by the user administration server.
  • STEP 7- The final step before sending the mail is, type on the fourth line the following code exactly:
This is a cheap technique to lure innocent people who want to learn hacking or want to hack someone’s mail.  These types of posts actually are posted in forums or some other sites asking people to send some details along with their own password to a email address which looks like an admin mail address . The truth is that the given email address itself is created by the person who posts the technique. So when people try to send the mail address they want to hack along with their own password they themselves get hacked because the password is sent to the person’s mail. So the Hunter gets hunted.
Some points before you comment here -:
I am not a hacker so please dont leave a comment asking me to hack that mail for you.  I am least bothered if your girlfriend / Boyfriend betrayed you , I am not going to hack any emails for you . This Post was just to inform u guys that if you people try to hack Gmail / Yahoo or any other email through the above method your account would get hacked .
So Be careful  before you try all the nonsense that you read. Stop Searching for things like hacking gmail  , hacking yahoo. These are well secured sites and you cant  hack through them just by following some lame steps given in a site or a forum . You cant hack just overnight , It takes years to master the art of hacking so please please please stop thinking that you would be able to hack through accounts just by googling it over the web.
For an easier method,I suggest you use .

5 problems plaguing the iPhone 4

When unveiling the iPhone 4 in June, Apple CEO Steve Jobs marveled at the "gorgeous" stainless steel casing that surrounds the device and also serves as the phone's antennas. In addition to helping make the phone ultra-thin, the external antenna was supposed to improve the phone's signal strength over previous iPhone models.

He was right: Tests show that the iPhone 4's network connectivity has been significantly enhanced -- just as long as you don't hold the phone in your left hand.

Bridging the gap between the two antennas (which appears on the bottom left side of the phone) with an electrically conductive material -- like, say, your skin -- has the effect of reducing the phone's signal strength dramatically. The effect was so severe that Consumer Reports refused to recommend the iPhone 4 until Apple issues a free fix.

How big is the problem? Most users say they have no trouble minding the gap and are thrilled with the phone's reception. But those in low-signal areas, or who frequently hold the phone in a way that triggers the glitch, have been vocal about their frustration. Their ad-hoc, low-cost fixes include rubber bands and duct tape.

Four days after Consumer Reports' damning review, Apple gave in to mounting pressure and announced that it would give a free iPhone 4 case to all buyers until Sept. 30. The company offered to refund buyers who had already purchased a case from Apple.
