How to write SQL fast???????

Some developers write SQL amazingly fast. Do you want to know their secret? It’s Red Gate SQL Prompt. "This is a must-have tool for all T-SQL developers." Brian Brewder, Brian Online.
"I use SQL Prompt whenever I write any SQL, simple or complex, because it's such a powerful programming aid. I no longer have to constantly look up or memorize obscure object names and SQL commands – instead, I can just browse for them. Of course, it also saves lots of keystrokes."

Microsoft moves to social networking

Microsoft’s latest suite of business products mark the start of a dramatic shift towards more informal user interfaces. The newly released Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 has integrated a number of interesting new functions such as Instant Messaging (IM), voice over IP (voIP) and live content streaming. The Facebook-esque new MySite feature is especially reminiscent of social networking. The web-based feature allows users to share their profile with other users within the network, automatically taking information from content that that user creates to make tag clouds of commonly-used keywords. In a turnaround from Microsoft's usual exclusive web browser policies, MySite will be viewable through various browsers, including Firefox and Opera and can be further connected to display status updates from traditional social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn. Microsoft Australia spokesperson, Oscar Trimboli, said that the reason behind the shift was the increase of “digital natives", people who grew up with computers, in the workforce, creating a demand for document in an enterprise to be as readily available as information on the internet. Indeed, Corrs Chambers Westgarth chief information officer and Microsoft customer, Jon Kenton, said that he was quite excited about using the software's social collaboration aspects to keep tabs on aspects of human resources. However, the shift towards the use of social networking tools within an enterprise environment, raises issues as to how much an employee's privacy can be violated with an organisation's use of these new features. Although Microsoft does provide a few basic tools for the filtering of content from and to these sites, Trimboli said that the issue of protection of privacy was ultimately up to the end user and the organisation. "The user ultimately controls with their own login to their own social network what information they expose to the organisation or to their other contacts and that's really reliant on the controls within that social network itself." Trimboli said. Facebook recently used the same argument to protect themselves against privacy violation accusations with little to no success. Then, there's the issue of using the social network as a means of work avoidance. Kenton said that he was not concerned about his employees using the network to goof off during work, provided that they got their work done at the end of the day. "I'm sadly old enough to remember the conversations around not giving employees Internet because they would just be on the Internet all day." Kenton said, "Even going to work, someone can distract themselves - whether it's at the water cooler, the coffee machine or so on. I think it all comes down to making sure you've got a motivated staff, correct supervision over them and making sure that they're getting their job done." That being said, Corrs Chambers Westgarth is still in early implementation stages of the Sharepoint software and the effects (if any) of Microsoft's new social networking shift will probably reveal themselves over time. Microsoft will be releasing the consumer version of its new software packages on 15 June 2010. Courtesy Computer World

HP(Hewlett Packard)

Hi friends i got selected in HP(Hewlett Packard) so i will update news about my company
HP Labs Director Prith Banerjee is turning his attention to HP's half-dozen international labs in China, England, India, Israel, and Russia to work more closely with one another.His goal is to produce more inventions that can be turned into technology that goes on to generate revenue for the company. Signaling its emphasis on international research and development, HP opened its seventh lab in Singapore on Feb. 24, establishing a research hub in a key country in HP's fastest-growing region.

HP is taking the refining process global. On Jan. 4, Banerjee named Min Wang, a former research manager at IBM's (IBM) Thomas J. Watson lab in New York, as the new director of HP Labs China. HP closed a Tokyo lab last year. Banerjee rejiggered HP Labs's performance evaluation system to more accurately measure high-quality research. The company also shortened the amount of time it takes to present findings to a review board. "Gone are the days of the labs of 30 years ago, where there was no pressure and you did whatever you wanted to do," says Banerjee, sitting at a table overlooking a leafy courtyard below his office, which is down the hall from the preserved work spaces of HP founders William Hewlett and David Packard.
Hewlett-Packard operates one of the few remaining university-style research labs in U.S. industry, along with IBM and Microsoft (MSFT). The labs are designed to foster innovation by looking five and 10 years into the future. But industrial labs have also been criticized for failing to commercialize enough of their work.
In May 2008, Banerjee, a former academic and founder of two chip design companies, undertook a top-to-bottom reorganization of HP Labs aimed at turning more of its research into useful technology. "This was a five-year plan I signed up for with [Chief Executive] Mark Hurd," Banerjee says. HP has sped up commercialization of technologies from its labs in areas including digital printing, flexible displays, and oil exploration. The company on Feb. 10 announced a deal to sell seismic sensors to Shell (RDS.A).

Microsoft surface

Microsoft has officially launched its Surface line of touch computer units in Australia with a focus on retail, education and finance markets.
At an event in Microsoft’s Sydney headquarters on Tuesday, Microsoft’s entertainment and devices division president, Robbie Bach, said the main targets would be businesses and not consumers.
“The goal here is to make the technology so natural that you don’t even notice it,” he said. “Today, surface is mostly provided by businesses. It enables them to build their brand, it enables them to interact customers in a different way, it enables them to allow their customers to find information and export them.”

Cyber Threats In 2010

"It really speaks to a Web 2.0 world. People communicate differently today, people transact and pay their bills differently today, and that drives today's criminals," ABC Science quoted David Marcus, director of security research and communications for McAfee Labs, which this week released its 2010 Threat Predictions report, as saying.
According to McAfee, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites-will become major targets for cyber criminals.
Symantec said in its recent report on 2010 threats, URL shortening services will "become the phisher's best friend."
Some criminals have already learned how to bypass the banks' second layer of protection.
