Earlier today the images of alleged al-Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed at Guantanamo Bay have appeared on the internet. Mr Mohammed had earlier admitted planning the 9/11 attacks, the US military says.

Mr Mohammed appears with a long beard and wearing a white robe in the photos, taken in July by the Red Cross at the US detention centre in Cuba.

Why Google Doesn’t Index the @ Symbol?

I wonder how many of you might be knowing this fact that Google doesn’t Index the "@" Symbol. Given the rise of Twitter So why doesn’t Google index this symbol to make it easier for us to find all references?

Now According to Matt Cutts, the reason for not indexing the @ symbol was intentional. Why because, if Google did index the "@" sign then the email addresses would come through and it would just make all the spammers to gather even more email addresses for their Spam campaigns. However, Matt also indicated that this may change in the future. You can find Matt explaining the same in this video.

This is a fantastic video explaining with some beautiful comparisions on how the world changed over the past 200years. The video explains us how the life and health of people used to be during 1809 in all countries of the world and how it is now.
