The Ribbon Menu user interface of the Microsoft Office 2007 is one of the best features which we have seen in Microsoft Products in the recent past.

With this Ribbon Menus it is very easy to locate the required options in Office 2007. But they take up lot of space and leaves small work area in the application window. If you think this Ribbon is too big that you can minimise it and still retain all the functionality with smaller footprint.

To minimize the Ribbon, just right click an open area on the Ribbon and choose "Minimize the Ribbon"

When the Ribbon is hidden you can access all the options by clicking a tab which relates to the type of activity. The Ribbon will automatically hide once you move your mouse away from it. Use it and reply

With a little help from Intel, Indian hardware manufacturer HCL -Infosystems on Tuesday launched an ultra portable range of leap tops with mobile Internet computing experience under Rs 15,000. And no, they are not called Class mate!The self branded laptops called HCL MiLeap X and Y Series have been designed exclusively for India, claimed the company.

HCL already has an existing range of its laptops called Leaptop. The entry-level laptop however does not have a hard disk and runs on Linux, though Microsft Vista can be added in the high-end Y Series.

Like Classmate PC from Intel, the two new models with a 7 inch screen size are ultra light and weigh under 1 kg. But there have been modifications made and customisation done for the product to suit to the needs of other user segments than just students.

Despite the price, the new range offers a full PC functionality with Internet experience unlike Classmate, and at a price much lower than Classmate.

‘MiLeap’ is targeted at consumer who needs to stay connected, informed, entertained and productive-anytime and anywhere. It’s lightweight and small in size makes it so convenient, that one does not think twice about carrying it to the office, home, gym or park, or using it in a train, bus, plane or metro, claimed the company.

Said HCL Infosystems chairman and CEO Ajay Chowdhry, “HCL is proud of its heritage of leading the technology revolution in India. With a legacy of having pioneered India’s first micro-computer, the country’s first desktop PC and the first home PC, at HCL it’s always been our endeavour to create technologies that touch lives.

“MiLeap’ Leaptops will herald in a new category of computing devices, opening up a wide range of new usage scenarioes and application areas,” he added.

Speaking at the launch of HCL’s new product, Intel's managing director, sales and marketing, South Asia, Ramamurthy Sivakumar said, “In a world where the access to information technology is really the passport to the 21st century, Intel and HCL are determined to broaden the number of people who can get access to the Internet."

MiLeap Leaptops' ultra portable form factor makes it convenient to carry and open up new possibilities in usage among a much larger number of people in corporates and particularly small businesses.

The price of MiLeap X Series starts at Rs 13,990 and it will be available in both flash-based and disk based storage versions. Its design makes it dust proof, shock-proof and durable just like Classmate.

iPowerRush-A cool gadget accessory

iPowerRush is a cool new arrival in the techno market offering some higher battery life for Apple’s portable gadgets like iPODS the iPhone. This iPowerRush is a charger that enhances the battery life of iPods as well as iPod Touch by upto 12-15 hours. That means it actually doubles the actual life of ipods and iphone!

Apple estimates that iPhone’s battery life has 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of web use, 7 hours of video play back, 24 hours of advanced audio and 240 hours of stand-by time. iPowerRush claims to expand this battery life of iphone by adding 4 hours of talk time, 3 for web use, 3 1/2 hours more for video, audio by 14 and stand-by by upto 120 hours.This is a real cool stuff from Ipower

After proving its mettle in areas like steel, automotive and IT services on this global arena, corporate behemoth the Tata group has now developed the world's fourth fastest supercomputer that can do more than 117.9 trillion calculations per second.

The supercomputer “EKA”, which means NO.1 in Sanskrit, was named Asia's fastest and the world's fourth fastest in the Top 500 Supercomputer list announced at an International Conference for High Performance Computing at Reno (California), USA.

This is the first time that such a system developed in India has been ranked among the world's ten fastest computers.

Supercomputers are primarily used by universities, military and scientific research labs. They are used in high calculation-intensive jobs like quantum physics, weather and climate research, study of chemical compounds, simulation of aircraft in wind tunnels and detonation of nuclear weapons.

A total of nine supercomputers developed in India have appeared in the Top 500 list, including one more system (179th) developed at Tata Sons' wholly-owned subsidiary Computational Research Laboratories (CRL) in Pune, where EKA was developed.

Others include a system developed at Indian Institute of Science (58th) and six IBM systems (ranked at 152nd, 158th, 336th, 339th, 340th and 371st) developed in the country.

The group chairman Ratan Tata said in a statement, “High performance computing solutions have an ever-increasing role in the scientific and new technological space the world over. The Tata group has supported this development activity and is extremely proud of the team that has developed and built this supercomputer, which is now ranked the world's fourth fastest.”

“I am sure this supercomputer and its successor systems will make a major contribution to India's ongoing scientific and technological initiatives,” he added.

The Top 500 list has been topped by BlueGene/L System, a joint development of IBM and the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and installed at DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California.

Another system developed by IBM is at the second position and is installed in Germany, followed by one developed by SGI and installed in New Mexico Computing Applications Center.

EKA has been ranked even higher than a new HP system installed at a Swedish government agency. The HP system is ranked fifth in the world.

“EKA marks a milestone in the Tata group's effort to build an indigenous high performance computing solution. CRL built the supercomputer facility using dense data centre layout and novel network routing and parallel processing library technologies developed by its scientists,” Tata group said in a statement.

The fastest supercomputer recorded a speed of 478.2 teraflops per second (trillions of calculations per second), while EKA recorded a performance of 117.9 teraflops per second.

“EKA has put India at the forefront of high performance and supercomputing technology globally. It gives us the ability to address applications in multiple disciplines including software development and research,” CRL Chairman and TCS CEO and MD S Ramadorai said.

The CRL supercomputer includes nodes and racks built by HP. The CRL team has been actively supported by scientists and engineers at Tata Consultancy Services.

In the near term, CRL is targeting and developing applications such as neural simulation, molecular simulation, computational fluid dynamics, crash simulation and digital media animation and rendering.

The longer term application areas would include financial modelling, seismic modelling, geophysical signal processing, weather prediction, medical imaging, nanotechnology, personalised drug discovery, real time rendering, and virtual worlds among others.

CRL also intends to offer high performance and supercomputer system integration, research, applications and software services to its customers around the globe in the area of high performance computing.

Supercomputers were first developed early in 1960s by Seymour Cray at Control Data Corporation (CDC). These days the supercomputer market is dominated by companies like IBM and HP, while Cray, who later left CDC and founded his own company Cray Inc is also building supercomputers.
