VirtualBox is a software that use virtualization technology that enable us to run another operating system (OS) in our current operating system.

Google just updated websites Page Rank. For those that never know, Google Page Rank refer to a rank scale from 1 to 10 for every websites or blogs. This Page Rank symbolize how Google view a website according to its importance.
How does Google know whether a blog or a website is important?
- Google can tell from the amount of links from other URL to our blog. The rational is that if somebody make a link to us, it shows that there is something important at our blog. That’s why blogger keeps exchanging link because they want to increase the number of links to their blog.
- Since Page Rank is something Google come up with, Google can also give Page Rank according to their own ‘suka hati’. That means, Google can drop your Page Rank by ‘suka hati’ too. Usually a niche blog (blog that focus on one topic) is more easier to get Page Rank than a ‘ rojak’ blog that contains a lot of stuffs in one blog.
Maybe some of you already know about Ubuntu but I am sure that there are still some internet users that don’t know what is Ubuntu although they already heard the word Ubuntu a few times.
For those that do not know a damn about Ubuntu, don’t worry because this post is written completely for beginners. For easy understanding, I make this post in question and answer style. Just follow the question and answer one by one.
What is Ubuntu?
I am sure you know about Windows. There are Windows XP, Windows Vista, and the latest one is Windows 7. Those things are called operating system. Windows is an operating system by a company called Microsoft (the same company that produced Microsoft Office). Besides Windows, there are other operating system like Mac and Linux.

Although live CD is really famous, there are still a lot of people that do not know about it. What is live cd? Actually, live cd is a type of bootable cd that contains operating system. Live cd is very useful especially in troubleshooting and repairing and your PC.
Since live CDs have their own operating system, they do not need the OS inside your hard disk (ex: xp, linux, vista) to operate. Imagine that your PC has error and can’t load windows. For most people, they either format it or make it as slave in other PC. However, perhaps the PC only has software issue and only need a few click to settle it.
