    PNG transparency on IE 

    PNG is a very popular image format in websites, especially used to offer image transparency. In combination with JQuery fade effects, it can generate very pretty animations. However, Internet Explorer doesn’t render transparent PNGs as expected leading to a really bad looking result.

    While searching for a solution to make IE to properly support the transparency effects, I came across this nice CSS fix:

    img{
    background: transparent;
    -ms-filter: “progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF)”; /* IE8 */
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#00FFFFFF,endColorstr=#00FFFFFF);   /* IE6 & 7 */
    zoom: 1;
    }

    Seeking the world’s best post-docs 

    Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is unique anywhere in the world, since it provides young researchers with a generous personal grant that gives them the freedom to work on whatever topic they choose for a maximum duration of five years.

    The program is coordinated by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH); however, the financing can be used at any institution worldwide.

    The fellowship is geared primarily to natural scientists and engineers at an early stage of their post-doctoral studies; however, representatives of other disciplines may also apply if they are able to present an appropriate project.

    Open source robotics will rock your world 

    The next version of the RoboCup-famous DARwIn bot is about ready to give the Nao a run for its money. The new DARwIn-OP from Robotis and Virginia Tech’s RoMeLa is just about to land, and the first pictures of the finished thing have started to circulate. While the bot is designed to perform, with sensors and servos suitable for higher-end robotics, the main thrust of the design is the open source and modular nature of the hardware and software. The bot can be purchased as a product from Robotis, but the CAD files are publicly available, and its plastic parts can be fabricated by the end user to save money. Rumor has it the robot will retail for around $8,000, around half the cost of its closed source Nao competition. The full unveil of the robot is due at the IEEE-RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots a couple weeks from now.

    Project 10to100 

    A few days ago, Google announced the results of its innovation contest called Project 10to100. The contest was open to the public and anyone could submit his or her idea. The number of participants reached the amazing number of 150.000, which shows the trend of the times for new and innovative ideas while searching for a channel to promote them. After reviewing the proposals, Google narrowed them down to the number of 16 which gave them to the public for voting.

    The results can be found at the official blog of the project. The 5 winners shared a significant amount of 10 million U.S. dollars! The general public’s preference was to choose ideas that had to do with the grand total and ways of improving the quality of life, from the field of public transport to sharing knowledge and information (educational, scientific etc.).

    Very good effort and I hope this investment to catch site and show results. Such ideas are very welcome and as a company, we also we want to innovate through our work because this is ultimately what makes it special and takes us forward.

    GoToAndLearn.com 

    For those involved or interested in learning techniques and tips for the technologies implemented by Adobe, I strongly suggest visiting gotoandlearn.com, a collection of tutorials created by Lee Brimelow, who is one of the most well known Adobe Evangelists.

    What makes his own tutorials to stand out is the fact that they are distinguished by directness and simplicity, they don’t confuse the average user and explains everything from how to setup the coding environment to how to implement difficult tasks. Also one more characteristic is the imagination that he has in combining different technologies from Android and iOS up to the use of .net framework.

    If you intend to address any of the above then it is worth adding this site to the bookmarks of your favorite browser.

    Evil + Upgrade = Evilgrade !!! 

    The title is quite intriguing and to be honest it is equal to its capabilities! We are talking for the latest creation by Infobyte Security Research (http://www.infobytesec.com/), presented to the public by the name Evilgrade (http://www.infobytesec.com/down/isr-evilgrade-Readme.txt). It is in fact an explotation framework that simulates the update process of several programs who are well known to a normal user and its purpose is to inject malicious software in order to control the remote computer!

    In simple words, if you have installed a program in your pc that belongs in the list of Evilgrade and you have already configured to automatically update it, then with Evilgrade and by calling the appropriate agent, you can trick it and install the appropriate backdoor to gain full control of the pc.

    The list of modules which each one of them, handles a particular program is large enough (63 in total) and among them are the most popular programs that an average user works with. Here are some of the most well known:

    - Teamviewer 5.1.9385
    - Ccleaner 2.30.1130
    - Notepad++ 5.8.2
    - Java 1.6.0_22  winxp/win7
    - aMSN 0.98.3
    - Appleupdate <= 2.1.1.116 ( Safari 5.0.2 7533.18.5, <= Itunes 10.0.1.22)
    - Mirc 7.14
    - Windows update (ie6 lastversion, ie7 7.0.5730.13, ie8 8.0.60001.18702)
    - Winscp 4.2.9
    - AutoIt Script 3.3.6.1
    - Google Analytics Javascript injection
    - Winamp 5.581
    - Nokiasoftware firmware update 2.4.8es - (Windows software)
    - Nokia firmware v20.2.011
    - BSplayer 2.53.1034
    - Apt ( < Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)
    - Blackberry Facebook 1.7.0.22 | Twitter 1.0.0.45
    - VirtualBox (3.2.8 )
    - Filezilla
    - Flashget
    - Skype
    - Trillian <= 5.0.0.26
    - VMware
    

    .. and many more! See a sample of how it works to get a taste …

    Quite impressive! For those interested to use the program or to develop a module of their own, you will need a good knowledge of Perl. A few info on how to implement a module is provided on the site but in not much detail i must say.

    Feel free to experiment and let the hacking begin!
