Google Search by Image

Let’s say you have an image file, that you are interested in, and the filename is not really giving much information about the source of the image, how you can get more information about the image? What I normally do is to describe the image using the best words I can think of by looking at the image, and search for those words in Google. This is not a very good method, and sometimes didn’t guarantee good result.

From now on, you don’t have to worry about the problem above, or use my method of searching about the image. Google has launched the Search by Image (http://images.google.com/). Watch the video to get the idea of this new Search by Image.

Problem Connecting to Wi-Fi?

The Wi-Fi modem is located at the 1st floor, and there is no connection problem at the ground floor living room, kitchen table, and most part of my house. But the problem happen 2 days ago is I cannot access the Wi-Fi at my ground floor living room. Windows 7 netbook keep giving the message “unable to connect to selected Wi-Fi”, and when I bring that netbook to the 1st floor, the connection can be made easily. It is something like the signal of the Wi-Fi modem suddenly become very weak that the signal cannot reach ground floor.

The 1st thing I try is, I readjust the antenna of the Wi-Fi modem hoping that it could give better wireless signal. But that doesn’t solve the problem. Then I login to the Wi-Fi setting page to look for any configuration that I can change to improve the signal strength.
