The Amazon Kindle

We have a new and exciting wireless book in town and that is called the Amazon Kindle.

The Kindle Store currently carries more than 90,000 books plus newspapers, magazines, and blogs. For your convenience, you can shop the Kindle Store directly on Kindle or on your PC via Amazon.com. Either way, all titles are wirelessly delivered right to your Kindle for free. We pay for the wireless delivery charges so you don’t have to. Buy a book and we auto-deliver it to you wirelessly in one minute.

The Kindle Store provides the same Amazon shopping experience you’re used to, including customer reviews, personalized recommendations, 1-Click purchasing, and everyday low prices. Check the store often; we’re adding new titles every day.

A little Terminix with your purchase of the Amazon Kindle wouldn't hurt I guess.

Digital frame


Wal-Mart is selling a generic digital photo frame called the Norcent 8" PF-801. This device allows you to get an 8" TFT Active Matrix on-screen display with an aspect ratio of 4;3, and a screen resolution of 800 x 600. It also has a memory card slot for you to store your favorite digital pictures on several digital media formats.

It looks like a good product based on its specs. You can buy it at Wal-Mart for 158.84 bucks. Not bad. Yeah, and it's on Wal-Mart so you can be assured that it's affordable as American Home Shield.

Sony's wind-up camera

Sony has just released a quite-weird but cute-looking camera. But some people comment that this green device is actually clinging on the "pain to use" category. How sad.
Sony's Spin N Snap (which can be mistaken as a Tru Green device, requires the owner to plug it in to get power. The owner also needs to spin the green ring either by manually turning it with a finger or by running it across the table (how weird). To make matters worse, there is no LCD screen whatsoever to preview your pics. Now, this is bad.

I am all for cute-looking products and gizmos but this one is just too much to handle. I would love to use this as a garden ornament but not for capturing pictures.7

The best website hosting deal ever!

I don't think I have ever seen anything like what BurtonHosting.com is currently offering. Not even the slightest. I mean, their website hosting offers are just so tempting, I have already been thinking of buying my own domain and hosting right away.

Imagine this, their Personal Website Hosting deal is 10GB Web space, 100GB Bandwidth,100 Email accounts, and 100 Subdomains. Wow! Beat that. And that's for only $6.95 a month. Amazing.

On the other hand, their Business Website Hosting deal is 25GB Web space, 999GB Bandwidth, 999 Email accounts, and 999 Subdomains. And this is for only $21.95 a month.

Like I said, this is the best deal for website hosting that I have ever encountered. It would be foolish such kind of opportunity.

Cool cams at Savebuckets!

My friend was looking for a nice digital camera last week and I was just surprised when he told me yesterday that he has already bought one at a very affordable price. I was shocked to know that he bought that thing for just a low low price. Wow! I was so amazed.

He said that the digital camera was from Savebuckets so I checked the site and looked for other items.

My friend was right. The site rocks! I just love the products and the price is so affordable. Better than what I had in mind.

Now, I now have a place to splurge on my favorite gadgets! I'm such a spender.

Get your shopping cart software from Ashop Commerce

Most companies these days create a website in order to promote their products and services. It would be quite surprising to know if a company does not have a website to promote their business online. Most, if not all, already have.

Most of their transactions also happen online. These transactions may include queries or inquiries from prospective clients or actual purchases made by customers. The latter is what these companies are after so they are trying their best to provide the best possible service to their clients.

One way to provide a good service to consumers online is to provide them with an online shopping cart that they will use when they intend to stuff from your online business. Not being able to do this might result to low sales and nobody wants that to happen. A certain ecommerce software provider named Ashop Commerce is actually providing business solutions to clients with online shopping needs and I personally believe that there shopping cart software is the best there is online.

If you are businessman, you can give it a try, and take advantage of their excellent customer service and customizable designs. Check their website for more information about the matter.

Google has 40 percent share in US online ads

This is big. Google is really dominating online advertising.

Got this one from TechCrunch:
A quick calculation by (via HipMojo), based on the latest figures from the Interactive Advertising Bureau, shows that in the first half of 2007 Google commanded a 40 percent market share of all online advertising in the U.S. (Okay, I’m rounding up. It was really 39.8 percent). But that compares to a 34.6 percent share in the first half of 2006, based on IAB data for that period. Here’s the math:

$3.98 billion (Google’s U.S. revenues in the first half of 2007)/$9.99 billion (IAB’s estimate of total U.S. online ad revenue in 1H07) = 39.8 percent.

For the first half of 2006 the numbers are:

$2.732 billion (Google’s U.S. revenues in 1H06)/ $7.9 billion (IAB’s estimate of U.S. online ad revenues in 1H06) = 34.6 percent.
Cool! No wonder that people prefer Google Adsense than any other PPC programs. It is just the best option up there to earn money effectively.

New Apple iPhone ads

Apple posted three new iPhone television ads on their site this evening. But unlike the earlier ads, there is little focus on the phone itself. Instead, the ads focus on the users.

The first user likes the visual voicemail. The second one is searching for a name on a website. And the third loves the fact that he doesn’t need to carry a man purse around any more to hold all of his gadgets - the iPhone does it all.

I am not sure if this is a good ad but it does make one wonder why an ad about a mobile phone somewhat ignores the very thing it tries to endorse.

Just right for your ink and cartridge needs

My mom is actually complaining high cartridge prices for our printers. She loves to create cards and all that stuff and I always see her tinkering on the computer for hours just to come up a cute masterpiece and flaunt it to us. Well, that's mom and we love her because of that.

So as she was ranting about her dilemma on high ink prices, I stumbled upon the Inkers site. Whoow! Just what I need right now.

Inkers offer a lot of great things for its consumers, which would include us sooner or later. It offers high quality generic ink and toner cartridges for a cost that is practically very affordable and reasonable. They provide an effective alternative to high-priced toners and cartridges from other brands.

Aside from that advantage, Inkers also offer a 100% guarantee against defect for one full year! Wow! I am converted. Totally. If that isn't a good deal, I don't know what is. On top of that, they also offer free ground shipping on the same day that you ordered them.

Well, I guess Mom need not be upset anymore. We found the right shop for our ink and toner cartridge needs. And that would be inkers.

Visiting Australia and staying at its great hotels

I have always fancied going to Australia and take a look at the majestic Opera House in Sydney.

I am pretty sure that I am going to have a lot of fun in Australia. I am quite certain that there's something for me there whether I want to party or just relax. I actually a have a close friend in Perth so I sort of have a place stay whenever I go there. But of course, I also want to try Australia's grandiose hotels.

The Perth Hotels, Adelaide Hotels, and Sydney accommodation will make it a point that I would have the best deals and offers possible. Not to mention the fact that the amenities there are so great.

I also plan on immersing myself in the culture of Adelaide's North Terrace, with its museums and libraries. You might want to indulge in retail therapy at Rundle Mall, or sample the variety of tastes on offer at the famed Adelaide Central Market.

Play Mac games for free

Who wouldn’t ever grab the opportunity to unwind and relax for a while especially when you’re quite burned out at work. I used to be so workaholic that sometimes, a game of mac solitaire will do the trick of keeping me awake and alive for the rest of the day.

Thanks to this amazing mac games site, I am able to take my mind off work and stress for a while and have fun playing some of the coolest games I could find in the site. There’s Mac Mahjong, football games, Virtual Villagers, and lots of other mac games to choose from.

Meet new friends at Wireclub

I was damn bored with my work so I tried to find ways to liven up the spirit. I was just surfing the net and looked for some cool sites to check and have fun with.

I stumbled upon this cute site which I find quite interesting. I headed for the sign up form and entered my personal details. This is a chat site, so this must be good. After some keystrokes and mouse clicks the site has already processed my data and gave me a nice-looking dashboard for me to work on my profile.

The Dashboard allows me to put on interesting stuff with my profile. I just now realized that WireClub is not just a chat site which offers chat rooms and avenues for people to talk real time. It also offers a lot of features that resemble established social networking sites like Friendster and MySpace.

I love the interface and it’s very user-friendly. The interface is neat and it has a minimal design that attracts minimalists like me. I hate those bold and glaring colors I get from Friendster. WireClub offers a very neat and straightforward design that allows you to focus on what you really love doing – mingle with other people from different countries and races.

It has features that allow you to upload a picture in order for other people to check on your profile and get to know you a lot better. It also allows you to enter 10 interests to your profile so that it would be a lot easier for you to find people with the same interests as you.

WireClub also allows you to create your own blog. That way, your contacts and other users can get to know more about you and your daily activities. It also displays profiles at random on the right sidebar for you to check on the various profiles that might interest you and find friends and contacts faster.

Eventually, the site has an interesting chat feature. WireClub’s chat interface looks like the one used in MIRC, where people can just say anything and everyone sees what you have in mind. I still have to find out if I am allowed to chat with someone in private but as of now, I am enjoying the conversations that we have with other chatters.

All in all, WireClub is not a bad site to start with when you want to know a lot of friends on line and get to talk to a lot of them all at once. It is also a good social networking site since it allows you to add friends and contacts and join various communities.

I would recommend WireClub to all my friends and family. You too can go check it out and try it for yourself.

Thinking of buying your own domain?



I was quite hesitant to buy my own domain before. But when I get to actually do it with Dahan-dahan Lang, I thought 'Wow this is cool.' Blogging using your own domain really has its own advantages especially in terms of having the freedom to choose your favorite blog themes and having total control over your content and other important stuff.

I encourage bloggers to invest in their own domain and hosting since most of the money-making programs for blogs require bloggers to have blogs that are not free-hosted. Those who are thinking of buying their own domain may as well check this site - Buy Domains.

Buy Domains allows you to choose the name of your domain through these domain search feature. Also, for those of you who are still clueless about doing business on the net and how important having a domain is to establish online presence, then you better check out their concise how-to page in order for you see the bigger picture about what the online world can offer.

Sony VAIO G1 – fairly satisfying

Sony’s little pal, VAIO G1 laptop, is impressive at a featherweight 2.1 pounds and has the familiar 12.1-inch display –-- something that most users find to be the best balance of size and portability. The drawback though is that it doesn’t get to have the XBRITE treatment, something that Sony is known for when it comes to its efficient laptops.

Most of the laptop’s specifications are found to deliver the goods. VAIO’s low-power Core Solo processor provides a reasonable trade-off between performance and battery life. Its 80GB hard drive offers adequate storage for regular end-users. The integrated DVD burner also makes a welcome appearance in this laptop’s petite feature.

VAIO G1’s 512MB internal memory might get frowns from demanding users though. Those who want to upgrade to Vista might also want to think twice since Vista requirements are kind of high. Moreover, the keyboard, which is about 90 percent smaller than the average laptop’s, also leaves more to be desired.

Finally, with all the hype given to portability nowadays, this baby comes at quite a premium. It’s in your own discretion if $2,600 is too much to ask for a laptop with fairly modest capabilities. Nevertheless, Sony VAIO delivers and that’s all that matters.

The Apple iPhone

Mobile phones have been quite similar in many ways despite their diversity in features. Let's start with the very obvious similarities. Firstly, they have screens, which are by the way getting larger and larger in new models. Secondly, they all have keypads, which also come in different styles depending on what the manufacturer's set of designers have managed to come up with in dire need to get ahead of the competition. Other models have PDA-like features, requiring the user to use a special pointer to get things done. But still, a keypad is necessary to do texting or to key in reminders and stuff.

But things are going to get a lot different thanks to Apple's new iPhone. Yeah Apple seems to have a knack at being always innovative and it seems that it doesn't want to tarnish its image of always getting ahead of the pack. So what's special about this iPhone here? Well, to set the record straight, this is the first phone that I know that doesn't have a keypad at all whatsoever. Yeah iPhone makes use of all the space on your candy bar phone by putting in a large screen in willfull abandon. So how do you key in text without a keypad? Well, Apple has news for you dude: Use your fingers, baby!

A few notes from Apple:
iPhone combines three products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching — into one small and lightweight handheld device. iPhone also introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting you control everything with just your fingers.

Whew! Click here to see more features.
