Thursday 6 October 2005 @ 1:57 pm

First of all, my apologies for couldn’t get the weekly highlight for last week posted on Monday as usual. It was a busy week last week, with a few assignments and stuffs on hand to work on. However, I still managed to keep the pace of writing at least one post a day. One thing I am so glad to see is in the whole month of September, I managed to keep 100% record of posting at least one post a day. That’s one of the targets I set for myself.

Anyway, here goes the weekly highlight :-

Monday
Last Monday, when I was playing with the with the Google AdSense feature in Blogger.com, the connection made when I was refreshing the site triggered me to write a post about Google applies Urchin on Blogger.com.

Tuesday
I saw one of the Google free service, Google Web Accelerator, reopen for download, then I quickly blogged about it. Unfortunately this service again stopped taking new users after just around 6 hours since reopening. Besides, another breaking news of the day was the offer of cheap USD$2.99/year domain name by Yahoo!.

Wednesday
I shared with you guys a really brilliant flash website, which truly amazed me with the fast loading speed and nice design.

Friday
Last week, Nokia released one of its music phones, Nokia 3250, which allows you to twist the rotatable bottom of the phone 270-degree (-90 and +180 degrees) to switch between functionalities.

Sunday

Over the past one week, there are a few new products and services launched. Among those products are Motorola’s iTunes enabled phone and Apple iPod Nano, while there was one new service launched locally, another paid TV service MiTV.

Let’s see what have I wrote.

I wrote an article about a stylish handmade PC casing made by oak hardwood and 1/4″ amber-tinted plexiglass. It is really elegant yet simple. Besides, there were news sources suggested the forthcoming Windows OS, Windows Vista, will have a new restart manager called “Freeze Dry“, which helps in installing patches without forcing user to reboot the machine.
