The use of Bonjour is certainly a mystery. Mac has done everything so nobody knows how to use it. Unbelievable!

We see Google more and more as the company of Android, and Chrome, of phones and of airy fairy future gadgets. Yes, the Chrome is superior browser and the Android is the best phone OS, nothing can beat it on today's market.
But it's easy to forget: Google's power in the gadget world comes from their money, and their money comes from advertising. Google takes 32% off the top of its ad sales in AdSense for publishers and 49% for search partners. In other words, over a third of the advertising money that feeds into Google ad systems, which are everywhere, end up with Google. I hate advertising. should i hate Google now? Ohh, i can't.

$97 —with 2-year contract—starting May 25. Obviously Apple is having a slightly harder time moving the final 3GS units because now everyone knows the G4/HS is coming out in a few weeks.

Google developed another algorithm update in this month, i see a huge drop in traffic for keyword phrases that are three or more keywords long ("long tail keywords"). It herts about 80 websites in my network and i can't figure out how to have deal with that.

Google's anti-spam engineer Matt Cutts recently announced that Google has been working on new algorithms and tools to detect paid links. He said that Google actively searches for paid links and soon will detect most of then and website that used spammy SEO methods will be penalized as soon as Google finds it out. And we are all know that Google really good in search :)

If one of your competitors finds a paid link that points to your website, he might report it to Google. You can do the same by using this form: Report paid links

By closing Lala, Apple gives a favor to Google Music Search. Yea, i know, Google has used Lala clips as part of its service, but Google aint going to shout down their service.

Ordered Droid Incredible on Verizon's website for $199.99, delivery by May, 14
What's good about android phones is no worry about whether it will be rooted or not, any android phone can be rooted. Verizon can't do anything about that.

So far Droid Incredible is the best Android device available right now. It's better than the Motorola Droid, better than the Nexus One, and certainly beats iPhone.
More and picturesCollapse )

It comes with 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of internal storage, 748MB of ROM, a microSD slot (with support for up to 32GB cards), an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, 480 x 800 AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a Android 2.1

The browser on is equipped with Flash lite, though it's doesn't work well.

AOL stock dropped more than 14 percent after they decide to sell ICQ messaging service to Digital Sky Technologies, russian base company that bought a 1.96% stake in the Facebook for $200 million. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the Chinese Internet that just bought a 10% stake in Digital Sky Technologies. If yes, the most popular in Asia messenger Yahoo! may lose a part of the market.
I never liked AOL, i remember how much time i have spend to cancel AOL dial-up service about 10 years ago.

The Good: Apple start selling 3G versions of their iPad tablet computer. If you happened to live in the area with strong AT&T coverage, it may be a good investment even though AT&T's 3G network lagging and slow compare to Verizon. I'm wondering if it possible to use iPad 3G outside of USA due to the luck of a micro SIM card availability. Of course a smart guy just enables wifi or bluetooth tethering in the Android phone and get online without additional charge :)

The Bad: Apple shuting down Lala.com music streaming site, that they bought in the last year. Obviously Apple going to to launch a satellite of the iTunes music store.

The Ugly: My lovely Macbook Air overheating. The CPU temperature doesn't go bellow 170F even if don't do anything on it. I know its hot over here, in my apartment usually 88-92 degree in the morning and 100-105 afternoon, but old Panasonic CF-T5 keeps only 150F on the CPU. I've bought an aluminum pad with a big fan just to be able to work.

I have received more than strange email sent to bunch of my email accounts. The email was in Chinese.  A quick google translation showed it was a reset password procedure (i never asked).  They were sent at the same time ( 4:54 AM) so obviously was done automatically. After research the source mail, it appears as a genuine mail from google:

Here is a two interesting parts.
First. All  those emails were added to my main google address as an alternate email address (in secure section of google.com/accounts), meaning they can be used to recover my main google account password, to sign in to my main Google Account, and more. (Don't ask me why i added, i had reason for it)
Second. All those emails are NOT listed anywhere, they are not published anywere, they are not showing in www.google.com/profiles/me. Those emails belong to my websites network and added to my main google account  in one specific secure place and wherever i checked,  google keep telling me " Your contact information is not public".

I'm very interesting where the the scammers got information that is not public, how come they were able to make Google sent bulk emails that initiated reset password procedure of the same account and how secure Google at all now.

 I was looking for something to replace my old Photoshop CS that i bought back in 2004 (to be precise, my company bought it). After a little search I found a complete list of Open Source Alternative to Commercial Software on downloadpedia.org. Thanks to folks who put it all together!

Interesting enough. That old CS 8.0 was a last piece of commercial software in my Applications folder. Except whatever comes with the Macbook, there is no purchased software anymore. All those apps that i have bought in last 10 years were outbid by their OSS alternatives. I can't believe it, only 2 years of open source live generated so many free applications that in many cases can do a better job than their commercial equivalent! 

And not only Apps. Even though Mac OS X is still superior because it IS more stable, simple and enjoyable to use then any other OS existed today, i should admit i really like a new Ubuntu 10.4 that about to release in a few days . It boots my old laptop in amazing 12 seconds and provide better user experience than Win 7 or anything similar.

Very interesting gadget for Google Earth. It shows you flight routes from some of the airports. It's a fun to see the actual routes. I also use it to find out where i can fly non-stop. On a screenshot i took a Los Angeles because this is where i'm usually flying from.  If you are from LA and waiting for someone, another gadget shows you the location of all inbound flights to LAX... Well, i'm not from LA...

I’m a heavy smoker but I don’t like the smell of tobacco and most of my life I smoke outdoor. But here, in Thailand, my studio equipped with a blowout fan that virtually instantly remove all the smoke out of the room and I can smoke indoor without any smell of cigarettes.

Such freedom isn’t good and towards to smoke more and more often. I’ve found myself smoking 2-3 pucks a day instead of the usual 1-1.5 pack. As result I’ve got dehumidified cough and decided to check out a local pharmacy if they have any good drug to treat the cough.

In Thailand you can buy almost any drug without a prescription. Instead of prescription, by Thai law, each of the pharmacy must have at least one medical attendant who can give an advice. People just walk in; describe the symptoms and medical attendant picking a right drug for them. Simple and easy.

But not all of them fluent in English and not all the drugs come with translations to thai! Are following me?

Ok, I went to the pharmacy and told them I have a cough due to the heavy smoking and asked for a drug.
The thai guy throw to the counter a bunch of drugs and pointed his finger to one of the box and said “This is goonna be good”. I wasn’t lazy to open a pack and read the directions. It was written in English only and had no single word in thai.
Are following me?

And this is what read:
“If you smoke cigarettes or taking any kind of nicotine, DO NOT TAKE IT”

I don’t really like remixed opera arias, but Sarah Brightman with her pleasant voice changed my opinion.
