After a long search, I found this tutorial to be the most effective to resize multiple images. I planned to make it my own tutorial but it became quite lengthy so, i just provide you this link, hope it would work better.

The End of the Internet?

By Jeff Chester

The nation’s largest telephone and cable companies are crafting an alarming set of strategies that would transform the free, open and nondiscriminatory Internet of today to a privately run and branded service that would charge a fee for virtually everything we do online.

Verizon, Comcast, Bell South and other communications giants are developing strategies that would track and store information on our every move in cyberspace in a vast data-collection and marketing system, the scope of which could rival the National Security Agency. According to white papers now being circulated in the cable, telephone and telecommunications industries, those with the deepest pockets–corporations, special-interest groups and major advertisers–would get preferred treatment. Content from these providers would have first priority on our computer and television screens, while information seen as undesirable, such as peer-to-peer communications, could be relegated to a slow lane or simply shut out.

Under the plans they are considering, all of us–from content providers to individual users–would pay more to surf online, stream videos or even send e-mail. Industry planners are mulling new subscription plans that would further limit the online experience, establishing “platinum,” “gold” and “silver” levels of Internet access that would set limits on the number of downloads, media streams or even e-mail messages that could be sent or received.

Report: Internet Outages Could Occur By 2010 As Capacity Stalls

Booming demand for Internet services combined with insufficient infrastructure investment could leave the Web vulnerable to brown outs within three years, a study released Tuesday predicted.

Nemertes Research said Internet providers need to invest from $42 billion to $55 billion — or 60% to 70% more than current plans call for — to stave off interruptions to the digital economy that could happen if the ‘Net bogs down. “The next Google, YouTube, or Amazon might not arise” if the situation isn’t fixed, Nemertes said.

The problem, the group said, is that bandwidth usage is outpacing infrastructure build outs. While core fiber and switching/routing technology “will scale nicely,” Internet access resources could soon be overwhelmed in three to five years, Nemertes said.

The trouble could be particularly acute in North America, the researchers said.

“Rather like osteoporosis, the underinvestment in infrastructure will painlessly and invisibly leach competitiveness out of the economy,” said Nemertes.

Nemertes conceded that its study, in many ways, represents a best guess at what’s happening with the Web. “The Internet is almost opaque to serious researchers, even those with the necessary technical skills, integrity and desire,” said the group.

That’s because commercial Internet providers closely guard information about usage and technology roadmaps. “Carriers and content providers refuse to reveal their inner workings,” said Nemertes, adding that it’s understandable that service providers are reluctant to reveal data that might undermine their competitiveness or compromise user privacy.

Nonetheless, “we conclude by urging content and service providers to cooperate with researchers in sharing data,” said the study’s authors. Nemertes also said Congress should consider tax credits to spur Internet providers to add more broadband capacity.

Avril Lavigne says…

Ever since I was 16, I didn’t give a damn about what anyone thought. No one’s opinion mattered to me and I just went out and did my own thing. I stuck to my guns, followed my gut and did what I wanted to do, and it worked. I don’t believe in regrets and I never will -Avril Lavigne…
