Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza has got engaged to a Hyderabad-based businessman but her family Sania's engagements ruled out an immediate wedding or early retirement for the star.The 22-year-old, who is the most successful woman tennis player of the country, will continue playing the game and her father Imran Mirza said it will take a while before the two families decide on when the wedding would take place.“This is to confirm that Sania Mirza is engaged to Mr. Muhammad Sohrab Mirza, whose family hails from the city of Hyderabad. Although not related, the two families have had friendly ties for several decades. However, the wedding is not expected to take place for a while,” Imran Mirza said. “I would like to state that the news appearing in certain sections of the media about the two maternal grandmothers having fixed the liaison is baseless. It has also been wrongly projected that Sania is contemplating early retirement from tennis. These reports are absolutely untrue,” he said.

GOOGLE is an American public corporation, earning revenue from advertisements related to it the internet search, online, e-mail, social networking, mapping and image & video sharing services as well as selling advertising-free versions of the technologies. It has also offered lot to the users to enable them to utilise the following sevices..
Translate text or even complete webpages into eleven languages (you can even translate from “simplified” Chinese to “traditional” Chinese). As with all online translators, this won’t give you a 100% accurate translation (online translators can’t grasp things like idioms and contexts) but if you want to buy those crates of AK-47 assault rifles from that online shop in
Google News has been around for a while and is old-hat to many. But how many of you knew that you could customise the page to only see the news you want to see? Or the fact you can set up customised RSS feeds for the news subjects that interest you? Never miss another news story about Paris Hilton ever again. You can also use the news archieve to find very old news stories, either scanned pages of publications or online sources. Some free, others not.
If you know an internet newbie who has not so much knowledge of the internet and software products, Google Pack provides an excellent software package to start with (although I personally wouldn’t choose Norton and Real Player).
One of my personal favourites as it helps me to find current blogs on my favourite subjects. Find blogs catering to various subjects. Want to know if anybody shares your overwhelming passion for navel lint by blogging about it? GBS will help you out.
Allows you to customize Google search results with your own self-rolled search engines. You can also provide information from your website as subscribed link or if you are a specialist in a particular subject area, you can even label & categorise search information which other people can click on. Again, this is another way you can actively help in making search much better.
This one is for the computer geeks (of which I am a honorary member). Allows you to find and download source codes and developers API's to make mashups for Google products.
My favourite online playground (although the offerings at the moment are a little dull). This is where new Google products are first given the beta label and unleashed onto an unsuspecting world for testing and commenting. If you try something out in Google Labs, you are invited to email the Google team involved with comments / suggestions / complaints. The way I see it, this is a good way to influence future Google products by getting involved in a product’s development. How many Google users use Google products but don’t bother to provide any creative input to make them better? Next time a Google product doesn’t go as planned, don’t complain on a forum - contact Google and offer constructive advice & criticism!
If you’re in business and you’ve developed a hot new invention, don’t you want to check first to see if anybody got in there before you and filed a patent? Google Patent Search will show you the patent applications for pretty much everything so you can see right away if you are the sole inventor of the combined coat hanger and cigarette lighter.
Want to know if anybody has been talking about you online? Maybe somebody trashed your website by insulting it in a forum? Or a disgruntled customer to your online shop made disparaging remarks in their blog? By setting up a Google Alert (with pre-defined search terms), you will get an email with links anytime Google finds something matching your keywords. Britney Spears probably has one set up now with the keywords “Britney” and “MTV Music Awards”.
Guys rejoice! (and women too). Want to buy some

Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran was shot dead on Monday by Sri Lankan special forces as he tried to stage a dramatic breakout from the army encirclement, a military spokesman said. The army is withholding an official announcement till a DNA test of the bodies is conducted. His closest associates, LTTE intelligence chief Pottu Amman and Sea Tigers chief Soosoi were also killed. The body of 24-year-old Anthony(his son), chief of LTTE's air wing, was found during mopping up operations in the last rebel-held territory in the no-fire zone on Monday morning. The over three-decades old conflict for a separate Tamil State, waged by the LTTE, left more than 70,000 dead in pitched battles, suicide attacks, bomb strikes and assassinations. Prabhakaran was very clear about his demand for an Tamil Eelam and asked his cadres to shoot him if he ever swayed away from it..But he failed to realise the ground realities because of his 'intransigence and lack of understanding of the geo-political reality.' Also he failed to use the military might to benefit the Tamil community. He pushed the Tamils into an abyss.
உரக்க சொல்லுங்கள் பிரபாகரன் இறந்துவிட்டான் என்று ஆனால் அவர் என்றும் இறக்க மாட்டார் எங்கள் நெஞ்சிலிருந்து.. விடியல் ஒரு நாள் வரும் தமிழனின் கடைசி உயிர் உள்ள வரை ..
A bookie calls Shane Warne before the match between Kolkata KnightRiders and Rajasthan Royals. Cell phone rings. Warne picks up.
Warne : hello
Bookie : I am ….... Here. Warne : yes tell me Bookie : I want u to loose today’s match Warne : impossible Bookie : I will pay u $200,000 Warne : will be difficult to make KKR win. Bookie : I will pay u $250,000 Warne : May be I could help you by reducing the margin… Bookie : no KKR should win Warne : OK. I will try my best
Bookie : no make it.
Warne : OK.
Bookie : what will be the score
Warne : 200, if we bat first
Bookie : no make it 120Warne : Impossible. Agarkar and Kartik are playing.
Bookie : 120 no change.
Warne : I will try
Bookie : OK. If KKR bat first
Warne : 110
Bookie : no make it 175Warne : no u are asking too much. Ganguli is playing.
Bookie : OK make it $300,000
Warne : This would be the toughest match in my life Bookie : OK, deal is made.
Warne : yesBookie : bye.
Match starts KKR bats first. KKR score only 120 in 20 overs.
During the lunch break Shane’s cell rings.
Warne : helloBookie : its me. why did KKR score only 120. Our deal was 175.
Warne : What can I do ? They run one when they could run three, defend full toss, get out on wide balls, all catches and
shots… I mean, if there is any… exactly directed to the fielders. But I will tell you this, Knight Riders are too good at this , I tried re-arranging the field…but they never miss a fielder.
Bookie : still u could bowl more no-balls. We got only 53 extras.
Warne : I asked all my bowlers to bowl badly. I also made Smith and Asnodkar bowl.
Bookie : Okay… leave that… I want u to loose the match.
Warne : I will try.
Bookie : Rajasthan Royals should be all out for 110
Warne : OK.
Bookie : bye.
Rajasthan Royals bats. They are making a serious attempt to not hit the ball and if at all they hit trying their best to hit to the fielders. They try to run only singles for doubles. But sometimes, they can’t stop themselves from running.
All Rajasthan Royals batsmen charged down to Kartik’s bowling and they purposely miss the ball hoping at least one
would hit the stumps. But they got to run a bye for that as McCullum is still searching for the ball . Inspite of the bad display of batting, they score 118 of 19 overs. Last over, 3 runs
required, the worst part is that its an Agarkar over. Warne is batting with Carseldine. Bookie gets really furious.
Warne is ready to face the last over his cell rings (he plays with his cell).
Warne : hello
Bookie : its me! . What are you upto ?Warne : We tried the best we could
Bookie : OK forget it. I want u to loose the match
Warne : what can I do. Fate !!! Agarkar is bowling
Bookie : I don’t know… u are loosing
Agarkar bowls… Warne tries to hide his bat behind his back. But the ball hits the bat and goes to third man. So they take a single.
Warne : sorry what can I do I was hiding my bat but still the ball comes and hit my bat. If I play much worse than this everybody will find out.
Bookie : (gets really tensed). OK I can understand. But please don’t take last two runs.
Warne talks to Carseldine. Agarkar bowls… a juicy full toss. Carseldine uses all his batting skills to restrict that one to a single. Scores are level.
Bookie : OK. Past is past. Atleast finish it in a tie. I don’t know what u are going to do u are not taking a single or u give u’r bat to the umpire.
Warne : OK. OK. Don’t worry this time I will! see to it we are not taking the single. Let it be obvious also. I am not taking the single.
Agarkar bowls, unfortunately he bowls a no ball. RR wins the match.
Bookie goes mad and Shane warne faints in the field itself
Warne: Am ready to be a female but cant make KKR to win...
Moral – With a team like KKR, who needs to fix a match

Vishnuvardhan, Yuvan combo has done once again after the tremendous victory in BILLA. "Adada VAA" song is catchy. Yuvan mark the melody is "Siragugal" sung by Javed Ali and Madhu Sree.Both male and female voices are pathetic. However, i feel the best song on the album is "Katrukulle Vasam". With great orchestration and a good voice, "Suttal Suriyanai" is another number. Yuvan form uses "Megaman Karukkudhu Mazhai rod paakkuddhu" line is simply beautiful. Great song! I suppose, Shankar Mahadevan's voice could be a suitable option for this song."Neethane" is a good melody is spoiled again by the voice of Yuvan. Pa. Vijay letter are beautiful. Give it a listen. You might like it.Aah ... There is a theme song. Yuvan never fails when it comes to issues of music. But this time it does. The issue is not really the music are rather reminds Billa theme at times.

I had an autorun.inf on my computer,my AVAST antivirus keeps on telling me that i had it on my computer..everytime when i scan my computer it tells that it didnt have virus..but i couldnt remove it..Then i found a remedy for this problem.. By adopting the following steps, i removed 'autorun.inf' completely.....
· Best Solution
It is caused by virus (I don’t remember the name, these virus names is never so easy to remember). But this same virus will put the text “Hacked By Godzilla” in the Title bar on IE.
1-2. double click on My computer on Desktop ,
- choose Tool and select “Folder options”
- click on “View” tap select “Show Hidden files and folders” and un hake "Hide Extension...."
- and “Hide protected operating system file” (this selections are important to find the files you need to delete)
- then click "OK"
3. open Windows Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del) and select the “Processes” tap
- Click on "Image name" to sort File
- find “wscript.exe” and click on “End Process” (if there is more than one process with that name you have to end all of them)
- close the “Task Manager”
4. then you will click on Start and select “Search” and search for “autorun.inf” (Search the computer)
- you will then delete all the files that contains the text (the virus) by pressing: SHIFT + DELETE. (There of course should not be Autorun.inf in the C rooth).
5. you will also delete the virus from the system (C:\WINDOWS\ MS32DLL.dll.vbs) by pressing: SHIFT + DELETE
6. Next step is to edit the Register (Like always you have to be very care fool in the registry tools. Some mistake there can crash your computer)
- first, click on “Start” and select “Run” and type in “Regedit” and press “Enter”.
- select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> Software -->Microsoft -->Windows --> Current Version --> Run.
- find there “MS32DLL” and delete that entry.
7. Then select HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Internet Explorer -->
8. next you will click on Start --> Run and type in “gpedit.msc” and press “Enter”. then you will open “Group Policy”.
- there you will select User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> System --> and there you will double click on “Turn Off Autoplay”
- in the window there you should select “Enabled” and select “All drives” (they say in this Thai webside that select all turn of Autoplay will be safer for not getting viruses). Now you can close the Group Policy.
9. Next you will click on Start --> Run and type “msconfig” and press “Enter”.
- you will open “System Configuration Utility”.
- click on “Startup” tap
- find the file MS32DLL, choose Enable All, then unhake "MS32DLL"
- click Apply then OK to close
- then you will exit the “System Configuration Utility” and select “Exit Without Restart” when prompt.
10. After this you double click on My Computer and select “Tools” and “Folder Options” and “View” tap to change back there.
- select "Hide Extension..." and “Hide protected operating system file” and “Don’t show hidden files and folders”.
- then you will empty the “Recycle bin” and “Restart” your computer.
This helps me with my computer and I don’t get any “Autoplay” on my hard drive now.
