Gizmo5 Acquired by Google

Posted by pnoy

If you are familiar with skype, chances are you also have an account with gizmo5 or if none there's not much difference between the two.

Gizmo5 functions like skype, an online phone company but Gizmo5 is based on protocols and compared to skype, it doesn't have lot's of users. For like $6 a month, residential Gizmo5 users got 300 outbound calling minutes a month anywhere in the United States, unlimited incoming calls to their computers just like how skype functions or even home phones.

Now that Google already acquired Gitmo5, imagine how the next telephony system could work. This is interesting. With google's ambitious android phones and lot's of google apps, it won't be long that google would become another phone carrier the soonest. This is interesting, I will try to look for more related stories and will post it here.

Finally - Windows 7

Posted by pnoy

Microsoft released on October 22 their ever awaited OS, Windows 7. Since it's beta release in January, the RC (Release Candidate) and RTM (Release to Manufacturing) versions, the OS finally hit the shelves. It even surpassed the Harry Potter record for pre-order sales in UK. No doubt this is the most anticipated OS ever produced by Microsoft.

Here's the link to some of the Windows 7 Videos to explore about its new features. I haven't got my own but I had first hand experience using the product in my office. We are utilizing it's Windows XP mode to run our work applicatons/programs. As expected, it fared well enough compared to Windows XP. Applications run faster and smoothly. One thing catched my attention, after I installed of the programs we are using on our daily task, the marker on tray keeps showing some warnings. I found out that it's running on low memory. Compared to the Windows XP system, we've been using it just fine without any errors or warnings. This only concludes that if you plan on upgrading your OS to Windows 7 with the same hardware, be generous enough to add enough RAM, not just the recommended, in order to get optimum performance of the OS.

There are a lot more things to discover from Windows 7. It is best to take steps in preparing yourself about the OS by visiting the Microsoft.com site to see more highlights of the system. If you're more of a techie, you may visit www.talkingaboutwindows.com to hear from engineers responsible for development of Windows 7 or maybe join forums here

Free Domain Redirection

Posted by pnoy

I've been practicing for a while with my free domain from co.cc and free hosting at 0fees.net. I was so excited practicing because I am not sure how to use hosting. I am still tying to learn from the hosting site's tutorial and get my memory bank with hosting 101. I am quite interested in getting one as I've mentioned before in my previous blog but I don't want to waste my money for the monthly fee just to slack off especially that my budget is too tight.

So anyways, i got the domain and am glad with it. Then I experimented with the free hosting and how to work with it. I got a blank piece of paper in my right brain with the details on the left. I can't seem to figure out at first how to put it into writing, I mean to realize it. Am glad there's tutorial for it plus the internet, so I did actually search for it. I wanted more ideas. Okay, so I now know how to add the domain. Next thing to do would be the template and pages. It all went fine, until suddenly, the page got redirected to this mybookface thing. Wutdaf***! I waited for the domain to be activated and after a while it would only redirect to another URL which I don't own. Okay, I got nothing to lose anyway, so I deleted it and created another free domain and waited for it again to be active. Again, it does work fine but after adding few posts, it got redirected again! Aaahh, am pissed! This is taking much of my time and effort. I dunno what more to do. Somebody help me! ne1?
