Real Private Browser, More Than Just Incognito

Yeah, you might think using Chrome incognito windows is hiding your identity and saving you from tracking, well it will save you from the average website owners but NSA, Google are still watching you, closely...

Incognito window on Chrome or any other browser just creates a fresh browser session that got no history or cookies, and it will erase them after you get out, but once you start using incognito and login in only one of Google services you are gone, plus if you previously logged in to any Google service then you fire up your incognito window, they can still compare the IP and they know who is exactly on the incognito session.

Incognito is a fake safety product like every other privacy feature, so lets make a list of browsers that at least doesn't track you and send information to the developer.

Well, I am gonna take off chrome from the list, it updates without permission and I wonder what it has on every update, totally different then chromium and well it's LOGGED in a…

Decoding Zend PHP Files and Encoding Without Losing Performance

The point of Zend, IonCube and other encryption software is to be non-decodable, anti reverse engineering etc, while the code it self runs being encrypted makes it easy to get out a logical output, some people claimed to do this by simple running the PHP file through php zend decoder engine and rendering the operation to a text file, this engine is free and available online, but I wonder if it would work with today Zend.

Another option would be free services, how they work, I don't know but probably the same way the previous one works, run the code, assume what happened, and which codes can do that, output them into a a text file.

PHP was never meant to be encrypted, encoded etc, it's meant to be open source, and so people might need third party software to encrypt it, as you know PHP doesn't need to be compiled to run, it can be in the form of text and the server would compile in real time and gives the output.

Third party software will not protect the files but it will …

Ubuntu Over Heat On Dual Switchable Graphic Card Laptops

After a long time of non-ubuntu I decided to try the 13.10 to see if I am still sharp, first thing I notice is my laptop "Pavilion DV6" getting really hot, to be exact 96 Celsius while the fan is spinning non stop like crazy, CPU usage, was really low, but guess what's the problem.
My laptop have 2 graphic cards, intel and ATI, one for power saving, one for gaming, in Ubuntu they run both at the same time, making it crazy hot, and I am sure it can burn your laptop if you live in a warm country, now don't panic, as long as it's not on fire you still can turn off one of them, I choose to turn off the ATI, I like power saving plus I wont be gaming on Ubuntu anyway, just not my kind of gaming platform, why? open source games are crap, what ? no? well jump down if you wanna fix your over heating problem and forget about my open-source gaming problem.

First open up your terminal and type in the following command

/sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

You will get an ou…
