Recently Google has launched its latest packaged of apps, dubbed “chrome Apps”, for the Mac, making the good promises from September when it kicked off testing.
Three weeks ago, Google has released the chrome 31 for OSX, now supports Chrome apps, Google souped-up, cross platform web apps that are much closer to natural software, the kind written for a specific operating system, like windows or OS X. Chrome apps can work on the off mode and call on various Google APIs and services lined to traditional based apps.

Chrome apps is written in HTML5, JavaScript  and CSS, its look like the simple application since they run in a bare bones frame minus any browser as like address bar.
Recently In the month of September Google has previewed the chrome apps and associated app launch for the Mac in the early develop of its browser, but they said that they are going to switch on the functionality in the stable version.
On the September chrome 29, window has chrome app support with initially support going back as far as February.  Yet the Chrome apps are not supporting the Linux version.
From the day of the conference of the June 2012, Google is been forcing to construct the packaged app strategy, experts have viewed the move as an attempt to challenge rivals’ operating system by using the latest chrome browser as a Trojan horse.
Chrome apps roots extend to chrome OS, the browser based operating system is increasing the number of computer developers, or OEMs, have used specialized chrome-book notebook lines. For example On Wednesday Dell has announced its chrome-book and will sell the 11 inch laptop in less than $300 to educational buyers.
Chrome OS and the spin-off Chrome Apps have a tough row to hoe, analysts have said.
 Patrick Moor-head Principal analyst with Moor visions and strategy said on yesterday, to go the user mainstream, Google needs to completely add off line feasibility to chrome OS.
Last month, Google tried to remedy the inventory issue with its first Chrome Dev Summit, a two-day developers conference that featured sessions on creating traditional Web apps and packaged apps, accessing APIs, and optimizing app performance.
Chrome 31 for OSX is now available to download from the Google’s website which includes the chrome apps support.
WeatherBug, one of a handful of available Chrome Apps, looks and behaves much like a “native” application on OS X.

Games help improve software security

Ever more rarify cyber-attacks exploit software unsafe in the commercial off the shelf (COTS) IT systems and applications upon which military, government and commercial organizations trust.
The most stringent way to prevent from these attacks is formal verification; an analysis process helps to certify that software is free from exploitable faults and vulnerabilities. However for the formal methods it requires the trained engineers to manually scour software’s-a process is now too slow and costly to employ outside of the small software components.
Getting, quicker and the cost effective means to accomplish formal verification is a national security priority, So DARPA’s CSFV (Crowd sourced formal verification) has constructed and establish its verigames web portal ( offering online formal verification games.
The CSFV games alter the players’ actions into program comments and gives mathematical proofs to assure the lack of important classes of errors in software written in the C and Java programming languages. CSFV motive is to investigate whether the non-experts will be able to play the formal verification games in a formal verification manner in a faster way and in the more cost effective way than conventional processes.
Drew Dean said that we took the really hard math problems and map it into the interesting and attractive puzzle games that online players will solve for joy, The DARPA managers’ By leveraging the player’s intelligence and creativity on a broader term, in which hope to reduce the security analysts to overcome in the formal verification.
CSFV has constructed the automatic procedure which permits the creation of new puzzles for each math issue the program pursues to analyze. If its reveal the harmful code, DARPA will implement the approve notification and modification procedures, by notifying the organization responsible for the affected software. Because CSFV authenticates open source software which government or any commercial department of defense may utilize, quick notification is required to correct the software instantly and modify the risk of security failures.

 Cutts begins explaining the question in practice about yahoo disfavor for its past days. Yahoo considered this method as stitching and they considered that spam said Cutts.

Does the Google consider it as a spam? “He said if you are taking the quotes from everyone else, that is probably will not add the value.

He has given the best example of where the multiple means with bits of information in an article, mentioning Wikipedia as an example. In Wikipedia the information is gathered from the various sources as citation to support the main topic, but to do in the way that reports and summarizes the information to create a new, unique web page on the matter.
