If you are looking for a site that allows you to play poker for a Mac, you must have known that it is not easy as you might think it is. Good thing there is this Mac Poker to save the day. Mac Poker Online is a site that allows you to play poker online using a Mac.

The site contains a lot of useful tools for people (Mac users) who are interested in online casino games. MacPoker Online allows you to play poker online for free or for real depending on which specific poker sites you want to visit.

MacPoker Online recommends Pacific Poker among all other poker sites. Pacific Poker is owned and operated by one of the largest online gambling networks in the world, 888.com. This ensures that users are good in hands I suppose.

Moreover, they also offer online casino bonuses. And the best news is this: both Mac poker and Mac casino software utilize Java and there is no download required, which means no infectious spyware. That's practically a very safe deal, if you may ask.

I don't play poker myself but MacPoker Online's clean website somehow encourage to try it on my own in the coming days.

Friendsation - chat and dating site in one

The best feature of this site is its free live chat mechanism that allows members to chat with other members in real time.

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.
