Do you work with both MySQL and Excel? Are you stuck editing Excel file after Excel file, while you know that in a database things would be easier? Fetching data from a database to then get it into an Excel spreadsheet to do analysis, reporting, transforming, sharing, etc. is a very common task among users. Do you want to interactively “connect” to an MySQL database, retrieving content? Do you need to keep having office users updating excel sheets, while you still need to have the data on a database? MySQL for Excel is an application plug-in enabling data analysts to very easily access and manipulate MySQL data within Microsoft Excel. It enables you to directly work with a MySQL database from within Microsoft Excel so you can easily do tasks such as:
- Importing MySQL Data into Excel
- Exporting Excel data directly into MySQL to a new or existing table
- Editing MySQL data directly within Excel

Most of you Oracle fans, might have noticed the changes that were going on on several Oracle web sites the past few months. As announced on the Oracle Technology Network Blog, the most important one-stop shop for Oracle techies (http://otn.oracle.com) has been redesigned and there were several enhancements introduced.
I was always a fan of OTN and I always thought that one of its best features was the Oracle By Example – OBE section. Among all the OTN enhancements and redesign, Oracle By Example was changed as well. And that what a great change!!! Now at my favorite http://otn.oracle.com/obe/ we get a full new tutorials search portal, The Oracle Learning Library.
2009 is out and 2010 is in…For the better or worse, we are already 15 days into the new year. Let’s then get a taste of what 2009 had to offer? And what better way that browsing all the Top 10 lists for 2009.
HTC Hero just like most mobile devices these days are limited with restricted user rights, not allowing the user full administration, mostly for the protection of the device itself and the installed software (operating system, applications, etc.) This is absolutely normal and most users won’t even notice it, since the average user simply wants to be able to utilize his mobile device for common tasks. Still, It seems these days that many mobile phone owners are learning just how valuable gaining root access on their phone can be. Rooting your phone is the difference between having the same phone others have and having a phone that allows you to change various aspects such as icon, fonts and many more. Gaining root access also opens the ability to have homebrew apps and other utilities that usually prove more useful than those commonly available. For others it is knowing that you have all the control.

Oracle Fusion Middleware (OFM) is a portfolio of software products, produced by Oracle, that spans multiple services, including J2EE and developer tools, integration services, business intelligence, collaboration, and content management. OFM is based on open standards such as BPEL, SOAP, XML and JMS.

According to Oracle, by 2006 over 30,000 organizations were Fusion Middleware customers, including over 35 of the world’s 50 largest companies and more than 750 of the BusinessWeek Global 1000, with OFM also supported by 7,500 partners.
