Google Introduces Better Search Experience For Tablets

In order to provide tablet users with a better search experience, Google has optimized its interface. This move has been made mainly to attract iPad and Android based tablet users.

This new feature has come after a series of changes that Google was adding to its other web based services like Gmail and Google+. The new design is a basic one and no extra feature has been added.

The main thing that Google has done here is to provide users with an easy to use interface by which they can access their content more easily.

It was always a little bit of trouble for touch device users to explore the content using Google as the search button earlier was small.

The redesign solves this problem as it has a larger search button with more white space and exclusive visual styles all of which are user friendly.

Google is doing its best to beat its competitors in the user interface field. Recently, it was complained that the user interface of Google+ is not as good as that of Facebook.

We seriously hope that Google keeps on improving its existing features so as to provide its users with the best.

Let us know your views about this new interface.

Hackers Steal Data Of 35 Million South Koreans

According to South Korean authorities, hackers have gained access to major South Korean websites by using a Chinese Internet Address and have stolen personal information of nearly 35 million users.

These attacks are being said to be originated from Seoul and have targeted Nate and Cyworld which are managed by SK communications. Nate is a search engine and Cyworld is a social networking website and both of these sites have at least 30 million users.

Hackers have stolen personal information such as names, email IDs, phone numbers and resident registration numbers of the targeted users. This information is very vital as a cyber criminal can use it to impersonate a specific user and can commit crimes for which the target may be held responsible.

SK Communications has asked police to look into the matter and the Korea Communications Commission is currently investigating this security breach.

This year has seen a large number of security breaches all over the globe. The most notable one was the hacking of Sony’s PlayStation Network from which the private information and the credit card details of around 1 million users were stolen.

Till now, no official statement has been issued by SK Communications.
