I’m sure many of us are thinking of upgrading our computer operating system to the latest Windows Vista. Apart from wondering will the current computer hardware be compatible to Windows Vista, probably we are facing the dilemma of choosing which version of Windows Vista.
Basically, there are 5 versions of Windows Vista to choose from, they are Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate.
This is the link to a comprehensive comparison chart of all 5 versions of Windows Vista. Hope it helps you to make your upgrading decision.
I’ve come across this interesting movie clip called The Google Master Plan in Youtube quite some time ago. It’s a movie directed and produced by Ozan Halici & JÃ¼rgen Mayer for their Bachelors’s Thesis at the University of Applied Sciences Ulm, Germany.
The movie basically talks about how Google can use their free services like Google Search and Gmail with their gigantic database for some known, and possibly unknown, purposes. Well, it talks about our privacy as users of Google free services as well. Needless to say, it got me ponder how powerful Google is nowadays.
I’m sure you don’t want to miss this awesome video clip :-
Check out their The Google Master Plan website. There are some different video formats of the movie ready for download too.
iPod‘s fans have made history as Apple announced yesterday that there have been 100 million iPods sold to date, since its launch in November 2001! 100 million sold in five and a half years is incredible and there is no doubt iPod is still the pioneer in music player industry.
Aside from making history, one of the good side effects from this incredible sales is that it brought sales to other products too.
The iPod has also sparked an unprecedented ecosystem of over 4,000 accessories made specifically for the iPod that range from fashionable cases to speaker systems, and more than 70 percent of 2007-model US automobiles currently offer iPod connectivity.
Anyway, if you want to know more about iPod, Wikipedia has a very detailed page for it.
After another hectic week with server outage issues, death of desktop’s motherboard and some offline activities, I’m finally back to blogging again.
Every time when I come back blogging, the first thing I need to deal with is the spam comments. This is the biggest trouble I need to face because usually the number of the spam comments is huge! Last week it marked the most spam comments I’ve received so far, just take a look for yourself :-
Minus some less than 30 comments that still under moderation, the rest are just simply spam comments. Can you imagine that?
Anyway, I did glance through all the comments in case I miss any valuable one before deleting the junk.
Talking about spam filter for WordPress, I’ve tried Bad Behaviour and Spam Karma. Both of them didn’t really give good results.
I will have to try Askimet soon.
Anyone has an effective spam filter to recommend? I need it badly!
