iRobot

by

iRobot movie is not what I have in mind, but the vacuum, floor cleaner robot which has become more popular these days.

.

iRobot founded in 1990 and incorporated in Delaware in 2000 (Wiki)

.

The firs time I saw iRobot was two years ago at my friend’ house. My friend described how easy and clean iRobot could do. It can operate by timing or using virtual wall to define areas where you want iRobot to clean. How fascinating!!

Now, the company, iRobot Corporation, has released more versions of iRobot to fit customer needs, such as Roomb, Scooba, etc. And, I think I should give it a try. I have an eye on iRobot floor washing since most areas in my house are hard floors — tile, hardwood, and laminated floor. The tiled floor in the kitchen is the most traffic area and I hate it when it’s dirty, sticky, and covered everywhere with Enzo’s hair. Even though I tried to clean the kitchen floor twice, I still felt that the floor was not clean enough!

I just wish the price of iRobot will come down a little bit more… hahahaha. Though they have different sizes and different price, I don’t think I’m ready to buy it yet. I guess I will have to put iRobot in my wish list for now. It will stay on the top of my list for sure… LOL!

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.

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

Take a look at additional pictures of the Blackberry Storm, click here

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