BlackBerry Curve 8900

by

Finally, BlackBerry Curve with a new look has just been released. Thinner and cooler – Ofcourse!

  • According to BGR website, here are the improved features:

- The size is awesome — totally small enough to be pocketable, but not too small where sacrifices on the keyboard had to be made.

- keys are located perfectly.

- The screen is flawless! It’s denser, crisper, and sharper.

- The keys feel more “fuller” and not hollow like the original 8300 did. They’re also decently spaced.

- It looks like a tougher material or finish.

Santoku

by

While searching for a new cooking knife and other cool kitchen gadgets, I found an interesting knife’s name, called Santoku. At first I thought it was a Japanese chef’s name who invented the knife, but with my curiosity I googled it and found more details about it.

.

Basically, santoku is a Japanese word translated as “three good things” or “three uses.” It’s a reference to the knife’s three cutting tasks such as slicing, dicing, and mince. Another word, santokuo is a general-purpose kitchen knife.

.

What the differences between regular knife and santoko knife?  Santoko is a modified Western chef’s knife. It’s shorter than most chef’s knives, thinner blade made of harder tempered steel, and thinner edge profile angle. There are some other modifications of the basic santoku originated from Japan. You might see some santoku knifes with some piercings or holes through the blade as well as different patterns of surface though out the body of the blade.

New Look

by

How do you like the website’s new look? I like this template very much. I can do so much customization on the template. Actually, the reason I changed the look because my website has been attacked again. This time, I was be able to indicate or find out what the problem was.

.

I did some research on it. It has been spreading to a lot of website which is constructed by PHP, Blog template, etc. It will attack only “index” file which is the main page. It will embedded some kind of Javascript to redirect the page to 7speed.info or 7addition.info. Don’t go to these websites. Although both of websites have been shutdown, the script embedded into all my index files were still affected.  So, basically, I had to go through the entire server and made sure I re-uploaded all the index files including the blog templates.

.

Anyhow, if anybody is experiencing the same problem that I had, don’t panic. Just re-upload all your index files. That seems to be easy solution for me rather than go through the HTML code and try to delete crappy Javascript.

.

Hope you like my new template! (I shouldn’t say “my” template” … it’s a free-download template I got from wordpress.org)

Golffy on Ovi

by

Yeahh… eventually I have purchased a new cell phone. My new toy is Nokia N85. I totally love it! I can snap a photo and upload to the Internet to share with anyone right away. Plus, these services are free and managed by Nokia.

Nokia offers a website, called Ovi, where you can upload pictures, video clips, contact information, to-do lists, and calendar. You can also snychornize it with your cell-phone too.

Ovi is also compatible with Flickr. I don’t think you have to have Nokia in order to sign up as a memeber. So, if your cell phone can go online or have the Internet access, you definitely should try Ovi.

Etsy is Easy to Make Money

by

I believe that as long as you are creative, hard-working, you can always find ways to make money. Etsy is an alternative approach for selling your stuff online. Etsy’s selling system is quite similar to eBay, but providing members with greater benefits than eBay does. However, Etsy has strict rules of what you can sell. Unlike eBay where you can sell EVERYTHING, I mean “EVERYTHING”, Etsy requires sellers to list ONLY “Hand-made” items. Etsy charges 20 cents for listing. Each item can be listed as long as 4 months. The sold items will be charged for 3.5% sale fee.

Click the Logo above to read more about How fees work.

The products which people are selling on Etsy are such as paints, bags, cards, jewelry, stationary, etc. You will be surprised how many people buy and sell on Etsy. Buyers who love unique and handmade products and sellers who wants to make some extra money on their hobby will meet halfway on Etsy.

Membership registration is free… Why don’t you give it a try? Create something and sell it! By the way, Etsy is not limited only in the US, they allows people from other countries to sell stuff on the website too.

Blackberry Storm – Hot or Not

by

Guess what…I haven’t bought a new cell phone yet. I’ve been waiting too long for Nokia E71 Silver/White to come out, so when it did, I don’t want it no more. Ha Ha Ha… Let’s take a look at new Blackberry Storm.

Verizon has announced the very first touchscreen Blackberry!! Yes..it has touchscreen keyboard.. just like iPhone. This model comes out to compete the iPhone. You will decide it is the one or not.

Gizmo has already gave a hands-on review to it. They even called “iPhone Killer!”… wow… I’m sure it is a killer because I don’t see any special features in iPhone except nice interface and touchscreen. It’s expected to hit the market in November.

You can read the reviews here

Still, I don’t think I can get this phone because I’m still under T-Mobile contract until next year….dayummm! :-?
