Looking for Windows XP SP3 With Vista Theme by Amit ?

A lot of people are coming to this blog, via search engines, to download Windows XP Service Pack 3 by Amit ? And today I received an email asking if the Windows XP SP3 sold on ebay created by Amit Talking is my brain child ? Left me pretty surprised.

A quick search on Google Images for Windows XP Pro SP3 by Amit Talkin showed me the following screenshots suggesting that someone with the yahoo id (amit_talkin) has created a slipstreamed version of Windows XP Professional integrating all the patches or hotfixes released by Microsoft.

Turns out it is actually a pirated copy of Windows XP (ISO installer) which also includes Microsoft Office 2003. Here's the description written on one of the forums [link removed intentionally]
Windows XP Pro SP3 Unattended install by Amit Talkin. (with Vista theme and more)
Includes M$ Office 2003, Adobe Reader 7, MSN Messenger, Firefox.
Completely silent, unattended and activation free, no serial needed. Windows XP Pro SP3 Unattended Install (Inc MS Office 2003). Will burn to 700mb cd.
Vista Sound Pack, Vista Transformation ( including new vista beta 2 themes, styles, glass effect many more )
This Comes With Microsoft Office 2003 SP2( Full...SlipStreamed 75 MB)...Total ISO Size is 695 MB!!
While I have written extensively about Windows XP SP3 on this blog, there's absolutely no connection with the above XP SP3 installer except the first name "Amit"

Infact, Microsoft has earlier warned XP Customers against downloading the XP SP3 preview package that surfaced on the internet few months ago. If you are keen on installing all the Microsoft patches released after XP SP2, I would again suggest Autopatcher XP - perfectly legal.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use. How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall. Facebook offers the Takeout option allowing you to download all Facebook data locally to the disk (include

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
