Weekly Highlights [Sep 26, 2005 – Oct 2, 2005]

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 :-

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

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!.

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

I never thought Google was the one behind for making Opera web browser a freeware, before I read a source suggesting Google handed a kind of compensation deals to Opera Software, in order to be the main built-in search engine for the web browser.

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.

I saw an interesting PC modding, which has the concept of “think out of the box” that exposes all its components instead on putting them into a casing.

You won’t believe a car can fly by itself, until you see SkyCar. :)

Google Confirms San Francisco Free WiFi Service

Wednesday 5 October 2005 @ 12:15 pm

In August, a breaking news spreaded out regarding the city of San Francisco of the United State will become a wide scale free WiFi zone that covers the entire city. Then exactly 1 month later, I talked about the the free secure VPN service for broadband offered by Google, which I thought very much related to the news above.

Today, I come across an article reveals that Google has already confirmed the plan to provide free WiFi service to the entire San Francisco city.

The company today filed documents in response to San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s request for information for the city wide network.

This news spreaded rapidly after the confirmation from Google officials, who also revealed that San Francisco people will enjoy a free 300Kbps (kilobits per second), always on connection anywhere in the city. The speed is not very promising, but it is totally FREE. Anyway, this speed reminds me of my first broadband experience when I was surfing the Internet at the speed of 384Kbps 2 years back.

Why Use Windows Vista?

Monday 3 October 2005 @ 11:47 pm

Many Windows users are waiting for the forthcoming version of Windows, Windows Vista, to be launched, while many still skeptical to the upgrade. Before this, I have shared a review of Windows Vista and also some screen shots too.

If you are still having any doubt about the next Windows, Microsoft specially prepared a dedicated page on their website that gives you the confidence to upgrade. Let’s have a look of what Microsoft says about Windows Vista.

Well, I only list some highlighted features as follows:-

  • Parental Controls – Parental control features that helps in monitoring and controlling children’s computer usage.
  • Fast On and Off – This is what I like the most, according to Microsoft, Windows Vista starts or turns off within only 2 – 3 seconds !!
  • Diagnostics – While the current hardware/software diagnostics feature in current/previous Windows is not very satisfying, I really hope this improved version can perform better.
  • New look and feel – Well, as usual, a new version of Windows will definitely have a new look and feel. This time, Windows Vista will have transparent application interface as been speculating so far.
  • Media Center – Easy-to-use Media Center menu system and remote control of entertainment files such as movies, songs and pictures.
