Now comes the bad stuff:
1. Loads of ads
2. Sign Up can be confusing
3. More Ads!
4. WebMail sometimes wont even work
http://www.hriders.com/ started offering this service a short while ago, but the website is loaded with advertisement and the sign up process isnt user-friendly. Also when i tried to sign up, i couldnt login for the webmail. The service doesnt look professional, and the site isnt even focused on providing Email services, the slogan says: 'Hellacious Online Biker Search Engine' even more confusing.

Now Yahoo is to increase its popular Yahoo Mail from 250 MB to 1GB for free, due mid-may. Paid accounts also get a new boost by providing 2GB webspace and the ability to send 20MB attachments.
Google's free Gmail webmail had set a new standard for free webmail services, by providing 1GB space, at a time when big Companies like Yahoo and Microsoft's Hotmail gave only a couple MB.

Nintendo is likely to sell a lot more in the UK, since the console is priced £99.
The PSP launch in Europe has been delayed a couple of months, and thats another reason to make Nintendo happy, since the PSP has many interesting features the DS hasnt, incluiding deals with movie studios, to make movies in Sony's new UMD format.

The PSP is to be released this tuesday. Price is $250 though it's set to first arrive in bundled sets wich will be expensive, to get extra stuff like spare batterie packs for example. Things that some users wont need at all. The PSP is going to arrive with some Sony made action titles, all of them to cost $40. There is going to be also other games released this tuesday. Gamers will get to choose from 24 games during PSP first week. The only thing that might stop people from buying the PSPSP is the price, $250 and $40 for the games. But it should be a big success, like PS2 is.

Well i finally got my blog to work, im still new to this, but im going to start blogging like mad in the next days. Below are a couple of my articles, if you like my blog , or want to suggest a topic for me to blog just email me.
Durig this week im going to add a lot of new articles, as well a shoutbox or comment box (whatever you want to call it) for the whole blog. Keep checking this site out, ill post some interesting technology news.
|W|P|111133323936599836|W|P|Sites Up|W|P|3/20/2005 07:07:00 AM|W|P|OMEITOR|W|P|After the DS being released in the USA, Japan and UK,we've seen it has a lot of success, but isnt the PSP better?? Well it has better graphics and the design is better, but do we really need a Handheld? or just a portable gaming console? Both Nintendo and Sony call DS and PSP handhelds. Nintendo DS will be the right handheld for you if yu only plan to play games and maybe * browse the internet with it. PSP has more features as well a better processor and display. The PSP will be released this tuesday. (Expect a big nice PSP review :) ). The Nintendo DS features 2 displays, (1 of those being for PDA funtionality) and it can connect to Wireless Networks (WiFi) and it has its own wireless multiplayer support. The DS already has over 500 games, that means you can play all GBA games. The PSP will be released with 24 titles, a lot for a new system.
Nintendo DS is not about the graphics and processor, i've already said it, but the thing that makes it attractive to gamers, is that besides it supporting all old GB games, the new games are fun. Well at least Nintendo games, i.e. Donkey Konga, these games are designed to entretain gamers, not just to show good graphics.
If you are a serius gamer, you might want to consider getting a $250 PSP, it has more power and promesses good graphics and the popular PS2 games. It can also play Movies stored in Sony's new disc format. The PSP supports both local and internet multiplayer gaming. The PSP can also play Mp3's altough i dont think you'll stop using that iPod.
Over all, if you are a Nintendo fan, i recommend you get the Nintendo DS, the price is fair $150 is not that much....

I installed Firefox a month ago, since the first time i used it, i couldn't go back to IE, and if it wasnt for Windows Updates, i would have tried to delete IE (i know its impossible, because windows explorer is IE based, meaning u couldnt browse through your files and stuff without it).
The best of using firefox is the tabbed browsing, simply by right-clic on a link, it opens a new tab, wich can be really usefull if you are like me and have 50 websites open at the same time.
Firefox has a lot of plug-ins (or extensions like Firefox calls them) that let you do almost everything from the browser window, you can manage your music, use commands like stop, play, next, etc. You can use this extension with Media Player, iTunes, RealPlayer, and many other popular players.
A big point that Firefox has over IE is security. Since Firefox doesnt work with ActiveX, you wont see spyware programs be loaded randomly to your computer just by surfing. Also the popup blocker works fine, but there are still some leaks, i would say it works like Google toolbar popup blocker.
I would recommend Firefox to the average user that doesnt need to use Microsoft based web apps. Firefox wont work fine with some common enterprise apps, so it wont be used for work purposes for a while, at least till the compatibility is fixed.
If you want to get firefox, just go to GetFirefox.com and download it. I promess you wont regret making the change.|W|P|111130049977157127|W|P|Firefox, IE rival|W|P|3/19/2005 09:09:00 PM|W|P|OMEITOR|W|P|You might have seen a banner or text ad promoting a site that gives out free ipods. If you ever cliced on one of those ads, youll be taken to a site where you have to sign up, complete sponsors offers, and finally youll get the "free" iPod. What the average user doesnt know is that by signing up, you will have to pay for a sometimes useless product or service, like Human Growth Hormons, wich can cost you about $60. After you complete the offer, you have to complete a second one, or in sites like FreeiPods.com you have to refer 5 friends, wich also have to complete the offer for you to get the promised iPod. If you do a Google search, you can find that there are more than 18 million sites about "Free iPods", many of them are scams, tricks to get you to pay something and finally give you a refurbished iPod, but theres a site that actually gives you an iPod after completing the offer. FreeiPods.com a site from Gratis Network, will give you a free iPod after you complete a sponsor offer and refer 5 friends that have to do the same thing. Gratis Network also has sites where it gives out free items like PSP handhelds, MacMini's and even Flat Screens. If you are going to try one of this offers, my advice is, make sure the site is legit, and try to find a good offer, that you can actually like, something like DVDs for example. Also keep in mind that these kind of stuff takes a lot of time, so dont go all desperate if after 1 week you still havent got your "Free iPod". And finally if you have to do a referer program to get your free ipod, the easiest way is to tell your friends about it, that way you all get a "Free iPod".
Good Luck!|W|P|111129757133010624|W|P|Free iPod? think again|W|P|3/19/2005 03:58:00 PM|W|P|OMEITOR|W|P|This week i found out some people were getting invitations by going to googles homepage. This could mean that Google is gettting ready to release its popular email service. Gmail as been in beta stage since last april, when it first launched by sending invites to a selected group of users like Web APIs and Google Staff. They all got 6 invites to give out to friends anf family, the new users also got 6 invites to give out. Right now the only way to get Gmail is by knowing someone who can invite you, but many websites started giving out free invites to everyone. last month Gmail users found out they had 50 invites to give out. Also Google has already sent invites to everyone who signed up for news about Gmail last year. Now 1 of 100 people that go to Googles Homepage, get 1 invite through a small link in the bottom of the page.
Theres been rumors that Gmail is going public on April 1st. But Google could just leave it in beta for a long time, a very good example of this is Google News (in beta since 2001) and Google Groups, which still dont have a final release.|W|P|111127724918590997|W|P|Gmail: Going Public?|W|P|
