Yeah, Microsoft has finally released its Service Pack 3, the most awaited release for the XP users. Though microsoft has officially trying to obsolete XP, but since most of the users treat XP being the most stable version released by MS, so it has to give constant updates. None of the hardware vendor, like HP, VAIO is incorporating XP as the Operating System and they do not provide drivers for the same. Before this release there were many fake or leaked Service packs were released, but they all proved hoaxes and contained severe bugs. The version released this time is still a RC(release candidate) version and the final version is yet to be released(i.e. Stable one). Let’s see what Microsoft plans to do, after the shocking denial of Yahoo’s stakes.
NEW YORK: Technology giant Microsoft Corp said on Friday that it had offered to acquire Internet media company Yahoo Inc for USD 44.6 billion in cash and stock. Microsoft said it had offered to buy Yahoo for USD 31 per share, which it said represented a 62 per cent premium above the company’s closing stock price on Nasdaq on Thursday. “We have great respect for Yahoo, and together we can offer an increasingly exciting set of solutions for consumers, publishers and advertisers while becoming better positioned to compete in the online services market,” Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said in a statement. Yahoo was not immediately available for comment. Microsoft said it had identified four areas that would generate at least USD 1 billion in annual synergies for the combined entity. Yahoo shares rose 56 per cent to $29.95 in pre-market trading on Friday following the announcement. US stock index futures also jumped after the news was released.
Today my brother asked me what are dat files and how to open them. Recalling the history of 2-3 years, i told him that dat files were used for VIDEO CDs formats (as he is a layman) and if he can see a video playing when opened in Window Media Player then the files are of his use, other wise that dat file is useless for him. But he claimed that it is urgent for him, as he got this as an attachment from a foreign college where he is suppose to go next month. Oh Mann! now what is that for ? I was aware of the fact that, Dat files are usually used to store data which can only be accessed using third party software or any application, and can’t be opened simply double clicking the file. So i asked him to send me those files. I started to search about this file, the file name was winmail.dat(most probably you are here using these keywords only). This format is actually used by Outlook express to send the attachments, yeah the filthy Microsoft has to play around with its tricks. So when someone sends an attachment using outlook express the attachment sometimes is encoded using .dat file and the users are unable to open these attachments using webmail like rediff etc etc.(i doubt gmail can crack these dat files, after all google rox). Guys it took 5mins for me to crack those files using and here are the two solutions which i would recommend :
