Amazon’s 8 Costliest Items-Total Worth $96.5 Billions

Everyone might now that Amazon is the World’s best retailer. Now its Christmas season and everyone would be spending money buying new products (sometimes, old things). In our country, India, everyone will be on the street to buy things. But in US, Amazon does all those things.

Well of course, I am deviating. So many US citizens have been to Amazon (even non-US). Everyone looks for a specific product or look for the cheapest product. I thought it differently, what about the costliest items. Here are some of the costliest items I found on Amazon. This is not for any affiliate commission. I know no one would buy these things in their entire life. Just because of the price, remember our title.

PTF Machine
Would you mind buying a beauty enhancer device at a rate of $26K? If I am given the chance I won’t do it definitely. At the same time I would have spend that money on something else which would be more productive. Amazon says the product is used for hair removal, skin rejuvenations, pigmentation treatment, vascular treatment and acne clearance. I can’t understand any of these terms. Maybe because of that I am not a beauty conscious. I wasn’t able to find any review about this product. No one might have ever bought it.



The case of the irate witness: A Perry Mason mystery, and other stories

Do you know what this is? It is just a book. You wont believe me if I say the price. Don’t hate me thinking I am lying. No I am not lying. The cost of a used book is around $55.5, don’t stop here, the unit is what you have to hear. It is in millions, that is the book costs around $55.5 million. Funny, yah it is. But this is the truth. The book is written by Erle Stanley Gardner. I don’t know what is so amazing about this. There isn’t even any good picture of this thing.




DRAMATIC NEW RUSSIAN SABLE FUR COAT FURS

This is the costliest apparel I found on Amazon. Its price is not that surprising. It costs around $46.5K. It should cost that much. It is top quality natural Russian Sable coat. Amazon says the product is Spectacular. But who knows what it is. It is a size 12. 53" long, 29" from the base of the neck to the end of the sleeve, 83" sweep, armhole to armhole across the back is 25" and shoulder seam to shoulder seam in back measured from the top of the shoulder is 16".





LifeSize Room 220 - Video conferencing kit

I have heard about video conferencing and had even seen ads about video conferencing kits. But never thought it would cost around $10 million. And the product is not even available at Amazon, should have to be bought from another site. With LifeSize Room 220, you get the highest level of quality available today - full high definition, standards-based 1080p30 for the highest resolution on the market and 720p60 for the best motion handling with lower latency. But, LifeSize Room 220 comes standard with an embedded 8-way continuous presence multipoint bridge showing 4 visible sites, complete with transcoding and all digital I/O. Plus, LifeSize Room 220 also has a point-to-point throughput of 8Mbps. And the compact, sleek unit is less than half the size of comparable solutions.One look and you can see for yourself that the LifeSize difference is the LifeSize experience - superior video communications across cities, countries and continents.

Precious Jewels Traditional Guest Book

This is a traditional guest book. You can share your love of nature with your guest on the guest book signing table. The guest book has a lovely butterfly ribbon with a delicate embroidered leaf. Design included is a colorful faux jewel butterfly. Now got to know why it costs $95.5. And what is the unit; it is not million, way over it. The guest book worth’s around $95.5 billions. Don’t faint down there is more to come. How do you think you are going to give security to it? Keep it in locker, then what is the use. Better thing is watch it on Amazon and just leave it right there.

Heart Shaped Diamond

Oh! I am finally here. This is what pulled me into writing this post. It is not surprising that the diamond costs $932,700.00. Look at the beauty of it. I wished I gave it to my girlfriend. But that is not going to happen. Maybe Prince Charles will buy it for her bride. I won’t be able to do so. Anyone who had bought it, please tell me how really it looks. The size of the diamond is nearly 14mm length and 14mm wide. Yeah, truly amazing. Its just the size of nail.




Faces of a Vanishing World, Featuring Photographer Joey L: Episode 1

This is another interesting thing I found on Amazon. A DVD containing a 52 minute video costs around $10 million. The documentary contains exclusive scenes not in the TV version. A portion of sales will be donated directly to Survival international, helping tribal people of the Omo Valley defend their rights, protect their lands and determine their own futures. This is one thing I found about at least one costliest product.







Just Because of You

 
An Audio CD of Eddie Arroyo’s “Just Because of You”. It costs around $999K. I don’t know anything more than this. Just because its about Just Because of You. If anyone knows anything more about this Audio CD let me be known. I wants to do some project on it.


If anyone wishing to think of buying anyone of the products given above, please say it here about your feelings after owning such costly items. Sometimes one have to even pay his life to fulfill dreams.

Don't think extracting means hacking into their accounts or anything related to it. It is completely legal and safe way to extract money. Trust my words.

The owner of Money Extractor, Bobby Walker, was a friend of mine for long time and I know him well. If I hadn't I would not have put up this post. He was forcing me to post about his Money Extractor as it had proved for him all times. He used this method personally on his site and might have thought of spreading it to the whole world.


Here are few things he said about his Money Extractor.
#1 Get you more sales without working for more traffic

Why shed blood for more traffic when you can double or triple your
daily income with the Money Extractor and the same level of traffic
you've already got?

Why burn holes in your wallet paying for more traffic? Right now,
you're leaving a ton of cash on the table because your current
traffic isn't buying. You don't need to buy more traffic, you
simply need to let the Money Extractor pull in the money you

partners onboard. The difference between making a couple of hundred
bucks per week and a few thousand is all about getting partners to
promote for you. They won't do it unless your stuff CONVERTS.

#5 Increase your website value

Want to sell your website at some point? Nobody is going to buy
unless they can see your website is making a lot of sales and
converting well.

#6 Build you a list of buyers more quickly

The ultimate goal in this game is to have a list of hungry buyers
that you can email any time you want. You can only get that list
when you're selling products... and if you can't make many sales
today, then that list isn't going to be built for a long time.


Don't miss out, I'm going to be using scarcity on full tilt, so make
sure you don't hang around on this one!

Google TV Lacks Legs

Do you have any knowledge about Google TV? Only today I got to hear about it and that too from TechCrunch. It is quiet unbelievable that Google can make something like Google TV, which has no legs. Why am I using the word leg with Google TV? Just to make you know that it hadn’t ran really fast like any other Google applications.

So when did they launched this thing? Google says it has been five months and still there are billions of people out there who haven’t even heard about it. Generally, when Google launches a new application, it is ensured that it will get maximum exposure in very short time and even I couldn’t believe that I haven’t heard about it for nearly five months and I am online for almost 24 hours.

Google introduced Google TV to the world at Google I/O and in the mean time they have made updates to let people know something about it and use it to the most effect. And I think this was a good move by Google because at last by now people like me have heard about it and would like to have a look at it. Google TV is a new way to think about TV, combining current TV programming and the open web into a single, seamless entertainment experience.

With Google TV you can experience the new features and connect to the internet from your living room itself. Simplicity is experienced. You can do any online activities like playing games, viewing photos, playing videos and many more on your big screen. Sorry you cannot do writings (I don’t know whether it is possible).

Turner Broadcasting has been hard at work optimizing some of their most popular websites for viewing on Google TV, including TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, available anytime through Google TV. There are more other applications which would let you see your programs as usual. Many TV channels also work with Google TV and the number of channels will increase by time. Anyhow, I personally liked the new technology from Google.

But still I feel Google TV doesn’t have legs. Being such a tremendous product it should have got much more attention. But we should hope that Google provides some legs to it and will win the race.

Students Achievement Increasing With The Use Of Mac

Are you a student? There is no need to ask it to anyone, because everyone in the world is a student until their death. But if you are a student hoping for bright future then you should read this article. Just a funny topic! It is now proven that students using Mac have excelled in their activities.

The Mac has transformed teaching and learning in the Greene County school system in rural eastern North Carolina. A new project-based curriculum has engaged and motivated students and college-going rates have risen dramatically. Do you want to hear the small story how Mac changed the Greene County’s success?

It all happened in 2001 when the college-going rate of the Green County School was just 26 percent. The authorities wanted to change this to a far better result. They decided to adopt an improved teaching method. Dr. Patricia F. MacNeill, Assistant Superintendent of the Greene County School District, and her team attended Apple Leadership Institute, where they saw the impact Mac could have on the educational level.

In 2002, they decided to put a Mac in the hands of every Greene County student in grades 6 through 12. This is where the story got a sweet taste. Mac had turned the teaching and learning experience of both students and teachers. Students began to be more enthusiastic to concentrate on their studies and presented their reports in different beautiful methods like media-rich movies, podcasts, wikis and blogs. Mac changed the system of writing lecture notes and all other hell of things into a simplified form.

“The Macs have transformed my classroom and transformed my students,” one of the teacher said. Another teacher said, “The Macs are interwoven into our curriculum. There isn't a single day we don't use them.”

Funding an ambitious technology project in a poor rural school district required a total community effort. The school authority had supported their decision to adopt this new system and provided the financial support, which they really wanted. The more surprising thing they did was moving over to Internet-based research tools instead of textbooks.

In June 2003, the school district purchased Mac computers for every student in grades 6 through 12 and one Apple MacBook Learning Lab per classroom for grades K through 5. Since the MacBook program began in 2003, the college-going rate in the Greene County School District has increased from 26 percent to a whooping 90 percent.


The story ends here. I got inspired by the fact that Mac can change the learning to a better level. Mac is not necessary, any laptop could do it. But the main question is about the future of educational systems. Can’t students learn without laptops? What do you think? I am in no support for this system as it will decrease the student’s capability to a greater extent and will move our Earth to a machine oriented world and that is what surely going to happen.

Blogging daily is the best posting frequency

Do you have noticed that for the last nine days I haven’t blogged? It’s only because of my busy schedule with my studies and other activities (I wanted to know whether it would make any difference in traffic). The most surprising thing I came to know is that I lost nearly 60 percent of my traffic in this quick time. Anyway, I don’t felt happy with this. So I learned a new lesson from this blog- Blog Daily to Get Constant Traffic.

Have you asked to yourself this question? “Why would someone come to your blog if there isn’t anything new out there to read? If not, you have to think about it. Leave all this thinking and all the rest, consider yourself as an example. Would you like to visit a site if there isn’t anything new out there? Let it be pornographic or any sites. If these are not enough take my example, I have lost many visitors as I haven’t blogged for five days. I know it’s a big gap between two posts.

There may be many people out there telling you not to post rubbish contents daily. This should be taken into consideration for a bit. Even I don’t encourage young entrepreneurs, like you, to fall into this category. Because posting rubbish content will only put you in the back seat. Quality will have the priority first. It is true that a bad post is worst than no post at all.

Going for quality won’t bring any money to your blog, if money is your aim through blogging. I would encourage anyone to blog daily, but how could you do it when you are out for picnic with your family or have lot to study while your exams (this is the case with me). I would have used pre-publishing if my niche was not on news based articles. If you are working with any other niche, where you are sharing your thoughts, you could well work with this idea.

For bloggers like me, guest posting is the best idea. You should ask some of your friends or other bloggers in your niche to help you with blogging some guest posts. You have to ask for it. No one would think the blog is lagging behind contents and need helps. Would you think like that? Not at all, that is why I am asking you people to ask for it.

Don’t feel sad that you can’t publish 5 or 6 posts daily as PerezHilton and TechCrunch do. If you are able to post at least one or two posts daily it would be better and your blog will flourish in a short period. Remember, Quality is king along with Quantity.

What Is So Amazing About Internet Explorer 9?

Well most of you might know that Internet Explorer is the most commonly used browser around the world, whether it is Western or Eastern country. I got to know about this when my blog stats section shown it to me. About 70 percent of the users to my blog were using Internet Explorer. Anyhow the new version of Internet Explorer is out here available for everyone.

What is so AMAZING about Internet Explorer 9? This is what I asked to myself. Well of course, there is a lot to talk about the changes they made to Internet Explorer. Even this could be a turning point for Microsoft to rise up.

#1 Compact Interface


We all know that Internet Explorer contained a lot damn craps in their menu section. But now everything has changed. Microsoft changed the unnecessary toolbars and icons that were used in the previous versions and changed this into one of the most minimalist browsers available. The new Internet Explore looks almost like Chrome but with many differences. Anyhow, this is the most beautiful version of Internet Explorer.


#2 Loads Faster Than Earlier Versions


The new Explorer uses Graphic Acceleration technique, which enables the webpage’s to load faster. The new Explorer could employ the Graphic Software and will make your CPU run smoother and will load pages faster. Even the speed factor was one major reason why many users switched from Explorer to Firefox. Now you all can continue using Internet Explorer.

#3 Address Bar Search


This is the most revolutionized feature available in Google Chrome and is now used in Internet Explorer. Address bar will take care of both addresses and search terms, making your tasks easier and will remove unwanted usage of space in the toolbar.

#4 New Tab Features


The new tab section in the Explorer has been made look more attractive with the use of new color codes or themes. The tabs can be ripped off to start a blank window. Moreover the tabs in the section will show the time you have spent on the site (The most attractive feature-to me).

Squidoo Lens A Good Link Building Strategy

Today I published my first lens on Squidoo. When I published the lens I thought it would be a complete waste of time. But I was wrong. It provided me a Backlink to my blog. Not one link to my blog. I have included four or five links to my blog posts. That means I currently have four Backlinks from Squidoo and moreover if the post could generate some traffic I would be earning money.

Why have I made a Lens on Squidoo?

The answer is simple. My blog had only few links less than hundred or so by Yahoo. I know it is very poor work from me. I have posted earlier about Backlinks and its importance. At that time I had more links. I never knew that these links would disappear if we won’t look after it.

I lost many Backlinks and this mad me to go for article submission. If said truly, this is my first link building strategy. I have e-mailed some of my friends for links but what if they don’t give me. So, I decided to take it by myself.

Why I choose Squidoo?

This is a good question. There are hundreds or more article submission directories out there. Then, what prompted me to go for Squidoo. The difference between Squidoo and other networks is that the articles submitted by us acts as a webpage and will be shown to the public when we want it to be live. Other networks, like EzineArticles and ArticlesBase take up to 48 hours or more to publish an article. Why should we waste that much time for no profits?

And telling about profit, Squidoo will give me some money if the lens developed by me gets some revenue from ads. It’s quite interesting. Isn’t it?

Why did I, now, go for link building?

My blog now contains nearly 125 posts and received traffic only in the range of hundreds after seven month. This made me think about link building. Now this blog contains enough information so that even if I don’t post for two days I could get some good traffic. But as long as it is not happening I have to resolve some blogging techniques I used.

Only now I got to understand that links from any site could bring a change to your blog. Whether it is well established or from a new one. Every single link counts.

How could these links bring traffic?

Whenever I write a lens on Squidoo, I place links to some of my articles. Remember, Squidoo pages have good Pagerank from Google. So whenever a person searches about a topic I have made a lens upon, the Squidoo page will be there in top position in search result. So the chance of getting viewers to my lens is high.

If one reads my lens and wants to know more, he may use the links of my blog to find more about the topic. So I will get one visitor to my site. This is how it works. This had worked pretty well for many and I am sure it is going to work for me as well.

Here is the link to my first lens. Comment on it. Create a Blog For Internet Marketing

HP Going To Purchase 3PAR For $2.35 Billion

HP and 3PAR Inc. announced they have entered into an agreement under which HP will purchase 3PAR at a rate of 33 USD per share or an enterprise value of 2.35 billion USD. The transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of both the companies.

3PAR is a leading global provider of utility storage, a category of highly virtualized, dynamically tiered, multi-tenant storage arrays built for public and private cloud computing. The company’s virtualized storage platform was built from the ground up to be agile and efficient and to eliminate the limitations of traditional storage arrays for utility infrastructures. 3PAR designs its products to reduce power consumption to help companies meet their green computing initiatives and to cut storage total cost of ownership.

“HP and 3PAR is a winning combination that will accelerate HP’s Converged Infrastructure strategy and bolster our ability to provide customers with the industry’s highest levels of performance, efficiency and reliability,” said Dave Donatelli, executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking, HP. “We intend to invest in 3PAR’s technology to create long-term value for our stakeholders.”

HP Collaborates With Hynix To Develop Memristor

HP on Aug 31 announced that they had entered into a joint development agreement with Hynix Semiconductor Inc., a world-leading memory supplier. The current collaboration was made in order to bring ‘memristor’ (short form of memory resistors) to market in future memory products. Memristor is a new circuit element demonstrated in HP Labs.

Hynix Semiconductor Inc. is the world’s top tier memory semiconductor supplier offering Dynamic RAM (Random Access Memory) chips, Flash memory chips and CMOS Image Sensor for a wide range of distinguished customers globally. The company is based in Korea.

The two companies will jointly develop new materials and process integration technology to transfer the memristor technology into a commercial product. Hynix will implement the memristor technology. The final form of product will be called as Resistive Random Access Memory- a new version of RAM.

The new technology will result in the production of RAM’s that are non-volatile memory with low power consumption. This product will be really useful if used as the memories in mobile phones and MP3 players. This will lead to replacement of Flash memory.

“This agreement brings together HP’s core intellectual property and a first-rate supplier with the capacity to bring this innovation to market in world-class memory on a mass scale. It is the most recent example of HP’s ability to drive product innovation from the Labs out into the commercial world. This is discovery and invention with clear purpose, which differentiates HP and reinforces the value of our research enterprise to HP as a whole.” said Stan Williams, senior fellow, HP, and founding director, Information and Quantum Systems Laboratory, HP Labs.

Memristor will become the most widely used memory when it comes to the market. Memristor requires less energy to operate and is much faster than the current memories. And moreover, it can retain the information even when device is switched off. HP announced that the memristor-based devices could change the standard paradigm of computing.

HP, the world’s largest technology company continues to bring new innovations in the field of Technology and this time Hynix Semiconductor Inc. is helping them to achieve such great works. Let the new technology be a success.

Google Chrome Is Now Two Year Old

Google Chrome has become a two year old baby of Google. It managed to make many changes to the field of online browsing within this short span of time. It is wonderful what time can change. Google Chrome distinguished web browsing to a newer level of thoughts.

It was on August 2008, when Google Chrome did come to exist when JavaScript was 10 times slower and HTML5 support wasn’t an essential feature in modern browsers. All browsers have come a long way in the last two years and the web has become much more fun and useful.

Google Chrome is much different from most high ranked web browsers. Chrome was first launched for Windows and then moved to other OS’s like Mac and Linux and provided more faster and efficient browsing experience. More over it is simpler and safer across all these three platforms.

Its sleek look is an additional feature. Chrome contains browser themes, which can be changed to make your browser look attractive. Side by side view is the feature that attracted me most. This is absent in most of the top ranking browsers. There are now more than 6000 extensions in Google gallery to enhance the user browsing experience.

Security is a major concern for many browsers and Google continues to extend the security features to make user browsing more secure. Chrome’s Safe Browsing mechanism serves as a warning to the user if he/she is about to view a site that contains hosting malware or suspected of phishing.

On the day of second anniversary of Google Chrome, they released a new version of the Chrome with more advanced features. Chrome is now three times faster than it was two years ago on JavaScript performance. Google developers combined the two menu’s in Chrome into one and moreover adjusted the color scheme of the eyes to be easier on the eyes.

Future Of Display Advertising: Last Series From Google

A week before Google published their last report about the future of Display Advertising. Talks about online advertising is currently increasing in this blog. Yeah! Online revenue advertising is vital for any blogger irrespective of the age of the blog or contents in it. The number of people living by online income is far more than millions and many went through a blogging carrier.

Google is developing a new technology to make display advertising work better. This will help millions of publishers from around the world. AdSense is one of the best ad products of Google and it continues to be the same with many website owners.

Google is looking to make the new technology more efficient. A publisher, like me, generally goes for selling ad spaces in their site, which is a time consuming process involving many tedious processes. They are trying to send maximum amount to the publisher by reducing the administrative cost (Assumption, about reducing it or not. Not sure whether they will do it). This will be happy news for most publishers.

DoubleClick Ad Exchanging enables ad revenues to be maximized across both directly and indirectly sold ad space, using real time prices. Using the new technology, the average price that a publisher receives through Ad Exchange is 130 percent higher than the ad space sold directly to ad networks.

The upgraded DoubleClick for Publishers platform offers publishers 4000 times more data than its predecessor. The new technology would provide the publishers a greater control over their ads, which is lacking in many other networks. Publishers are given chances to get more data, reports about their ad business helping them to make most out of it.

Google is trying to provide ads on mobile and many other new devices like smartphones, tablets, e-readers and even in video game consoles. As new products like iPad’s are being used by millions of people, they are turning their attention to these peoples also.

Anyhow Google finds a bright future in online advertising.

New iPod Touch From Apple

Apple on September 1 had launched new iPod touch with more new incredible features like Apple’s Stunning Retina display, FaceTime video calling, High Definition video recording Apple’s A4 chip, 3-axis gyro- all results in a thinnest and lightest iPod touch ever. Moreover it came up with features to play 40 hours of music and video on a single battery charge. A thing every music lover would hear to know.

iTunes U exceeded 300 million downloads

Before three years Apple in collaboration with colleges and universities has mad iTunes U. It made it easy to extend learning, explore interests or learn more about a school. iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes store, offers users public access to content from world class institutions. All iTunes U content is free and can be enjoyed on a Mac or PC, or wirelessly downloaded directly onto an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

This was just an introduction to what I am going to tell and the above given things are known to everyone. So the main thing is that iTunes U download exceeded 300 million, which is quite an extra ordinary achievement Apple had made up.

In just over three years, iTunes U downloads have topped 300 million and it has become one of the world’s most popular online educational catalogs. Over 800 universities, from around the world have active iTunes U sites. They provide access to video or audio tutorials, lectures and anything they can provide value to.

New content has been added from universities in countries like China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico and Singapore. The audio and video files exceeds number in 350,000, which is a huge collection. If iTunes store is able to store files from all universities around the world the video and audio collection could well overtake YouTube by a massive margin.

“iTunes U makes it easy for people to discover and learn with content from many of the world’s top institutions”, said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. This is just another cool application from Apple.

300,000 Applications for Twitter

As you all know Twitter started working on 2006 with mere number of applications. Since their launch, they were very much successful in their field of Social Marketing and Micro blogging. Only Facebook came up to do some shaky work to Twitter. Even then Twitter managed to bring up some impressive figures to their credit.

Twitter now has over 145 million users (a rough figure. They have less than 150 million users). And most importantly, Twitter now has nearly 300,000 registered applications under their belt. The latter number above is technically the number of registered OAuth applications in the Twitter ecosystem. Twitter, few days ago, changed from basic authentication to OAuth and left some applications like Tweetie. Anyhow the Chirp Conference, held on April 2010, had made a great impact on Twitter.

Number of registered applications has tripled since this conference. Number of mobile users (using Twitter) has jumped 62 percent since mid-April. There has been a tremendous change in the use of Twitter via mobile phones. 16 percent of all new Twitter users start on mobile. SMS and Twitter for iPhone are tied at 8 percent.

Top 10 Twitter Applications

  • Twitter.com- covered almost 78 percent of the Twitter usage.
  • m.twitter.com- 14 percent users used it.
  • SMS- standing at a rate of 8 percent.
  • Twitter for iPhone- covered 8 percent users.
  • Twitter for Blackberry- 7 percent users used Twitter from their Blackberry devices.
  • TwitPic- used by around 4 percent.
  • TweetDeck- used by 3 percent of total Twitter users.
  • Echofon- 3 percent users used this Twitter application.
  • Google Friend Connect- used by 2 percent of Twitter users.
  • Uber Twitter- again a 2 percent efficiency.

A Great New Look For Us

Today we underwent a complete turnover from a poor organized theme to changing our commenting system. Even though there is many more to do with the theme I have made my blog look somewhat decent. And moreover it is the best I have found so far for Blogger blog.

This cool new theme allows me to have nice share buttons, adequate Ad space and many sidebars throughout the layout. Now the only thing left with me is to add some good essential widgets to this blog and remove unnecessary ones. Sorry, for not currently providing E-mail subscription offer. I will do it within one or two days.

Added more sharing options to my blog. Just to make sure that I don’t lose any traffic and moreover it is a way to show authority of the blog.

The next thing I done was adding Disqus commenting system to my blog. I was using Intense Debate for a long time. But it is open to any scam messages. So I thought of dropping out from Intense Debate and found a better deal at Disqus.

Sorry, for not posting anything for the whole day even though I was available online. Better look for more after two days, we will be right on track with more news.

Share your valuable comments about the new look and it will be a good opportunity for me test for Disqus.

7 Important Widgets for Blogs

We have already talked about the need of attractive themes. Even after adding a good theme it is not necessary that the blog looks beautiful. Indeed there is one more factor which gives blog a beautiful look, the Widgets. Widgets are applications that you use in your blog for the easiness of user navigation and moreover a good look. I have already stated in my previous posts that standing out from the rest of the crowd is where your Blogging Success begins.

The list given below contains small details about most widely used 7 Widgets, which is a must for every Blogs.

Search Box- Adding a Search Box to your Blog is the first and foremost step to do after adding themes. Nowadays, most of the premium themes come up with built in Search Box. Customize it to your own way. Readers will use Search Box when they want to find something specific. It is sure that they will get frustrated if you don’t have one. This means you are loosing important page views.

More importantly try to avoid the use of Google Search. It is better to guide people to your own blog. Why do you need to drive traffic and sales to Google, when you can grab it?

Subscription Calls- Subscribers are the gold coins in Blogging. Why? It’s only because they are guaranteed visitors to your contents. Each one of them is important for your success. Building a relationship with these people is easier. A blog with large number of subscribers represents a successful one.

So, we have to make people subscribe to our blog. Adding subscription calls to the blog is the best way to attract readers. Add a Subscription box in the header section or in the top of Sidebar. Anyway, one above the fold is necessary. Secondly, give one below each post. If someone read your blog post and got impressed, give them a chance to subscribe. Make sure that you give your readers RSS option and Email option to subscribe to your blog.

Popular Posts- Think that you are in a blog containing 10,000 blog posts. How will you find the most featured post in the blog? So it is a good idea to give some space on your sidebar for ‘Popular Posts’ widget. Sidebar is the best place to provide popular posts. Many use it in the footer also. No problem, you can choose what you want. Some use it as ‘Featured Post’ in the header section. This grabs reader’s attention very effectively. You can use it even on the bottom of every post.

Categories- This widget is most necessary for blogs like this, which talks about different subjects. I currently talks only about Blogging and Technology. But if gone deeper these two can even be categorized into hundreds of other sub-divisions. Think about a blog of more topics. It will be difficult to find what you want. This is where ‘Categories’ widget will help readers. I used one in earlier days, but as my topics got decreased I dropped it.

Related Articles- This is another widget which helps people to find related articles in the same category. I use one in this blog. It is a better way of navigating your readers to different pages. This helps my readers to know more about my articles. Many professionals like ProBlogger.com use this widget. Wordpress provides several plugins to add this widget to blog.

Share This- This is the closing part of each post (comments are not in author’s hand). Submitting articles to Social Bookmarking sites is one way of driving traffic to the blogs. So it is necessary to give away a sharing option for readers. Which blogger would love to loose traffic? So many bloggers have provided this widget. It will also increase a chance of getting Backlinks.

Author Bio- This is the last thing you have to necessarily add to your blog. Firstly create an Author Bio for your blog with some of your personal information. Just make people know who you are (not a scam). It is good to add a photo of yours in this section. Write some attractive lines about yourself. You can include your age, residing place, what you are currently doing. Let your readers know who is behind the blog.

It is not necessary that all themes support these widgets. I don’t use most of these themes out here only because I can’t. Selecting a good theme, which supports these widgets, is equally important.

RichWP Theme FrameWork is easy to use and gives you full control over your design and layout. Together with the available Child Themes and Design Presets, rapid and streamlined Web development is guaranteed. Your results will be fast, SEO-friendly, professional-looking Web sites of any kind. Buy one such theme.

Templatic provides professional good looking themes. They add their directory with two new themes every month. The professional themes are designed such that they get maximum Search Engine Exposure. Themes are ready for advertising and monetization. Check it out.

Attractive Blog Themes Attract Readers

According to ZacJohnson.com, nearly twenty thousand blogs are added everyday. All of them will surely provide a theme to the blog and starts their blogging career, without knowing the importance of a good looking theme on blogging. I don’t want any of my readers to be in this category. Do something you know. There is something more to a theme rather making the blog attractive.

On previous day I got an e-mail asking me several questions about Blog Design. I thought it would be better to give my readers something about Blog Design. You might be eager to know about the questions I came up with. Don’t worry I will tell you that along with the answer. Here are some quotes of the mail.

I don’t feel to be happy with the theme I take up. Every time I am forced to change my theme for one or another reason. Could you please tell me which theme is best for blogs? Where could I find these themes? Does it give me any help with SEO or traffic?

Well its time to answer each of the questions. There is importance to each and every step you do in Blogging. Let it be selecting theme, or adding widgets, or writing a post. Yeah! Truly there is very importance to a good blog template. Even though you have good articles in your blog, this small factor can let you down in Blogging and could well ruin your whole career.

Which theme is best for Blogs?

It’s a good question to ask. I would say something that is visually attractive as well as a good supporter of SEO. Themes are mainly classified on the basis of number of columns (I look for this). Generally two column themes are good. Even going for three column won’t do much difference. Determine the number depending upon the widgets you wish to add. This is a two column template.

Don’t copy others theme, try to stand out from the rest of the crowd. I have told you that 20,000 blogs are added every day. So stand out from the crowd. While standing out from the crowd it is necessary to keep it unique, memorable and should provide value to readers.

Attractive looks are not enough for Blog templates. It should also look upon several SEO factors like page loading time, different meta tags, post font and the list will go on. Talking about SEO is always a bit difficult.

Where could you find good themes?

Well I am a big fan of Wordpress, so I recommend Wordpress Blogs. Those who go for a free themes, you can find it just by searching it in Search Engine giants like Google. But remember it is better to choose a customized theme for your blog (to stand out from the crowd and to get a good attractive theme).

Creating a custom theme by you would spend a lot of time and money. Moreover you may have to employ a designer for creating it. There are several networks available online which provides you with a complete access to themes (for a small fee). I am planning to post a list of ‘Top Wordpress Theme Providers’, look for it. Here are some services that I recommend.

Atomic Blogging Theme is a perfect Wordpress theme for Affiliate Marketers (who else is there). Build your own theme within minutes. They provide 22 layouts to choose from. To start creating your theme Click here.

Socrates Premium Wordpress Theme lets you create and monetize custom niche Wordpress blogs. The theme is instantly monetized with Adsense. They provide 1000’s of design templates. Get it now.

Do customized themes give me any help with SEO or traffic?

With the matter of traffic I can guarantee you that you will improve. Its not traffic that matters but the attractive themes brings more RSS subscribers. They are like diamonds in Blogging. Giving RSS subscription in your blog is important and it is an essential component. A unique theme will make the readers think that you are a professional. I had several experience of people leaving the blog without even spending one second on my blog (when I used default theme). Do you want this to happen to you?

Talking about SEO, it all depends on the theme you choose. More images means more download time which means more page loading time. So minimize the number of sidebar widgets (especially when it is images). Adding third party scripts in template is the best to do.

Now I think you understand the importance of unique theme in Blogging. Here are some guides that will help you in Blogging. Its worth reading them.

Top 3 Steps To Succeed In Affiliate Marketing

Well, we have already discussed about several topics on ‘Making Money Online’. Only now I have entered into affiliate marketing and got to know that there are hundreds of thousands of blogs on affiliate marketing. Yeah, it’s a vast topic to talk upon. So far Making Money from Blogging was a primary topic of concern for me, but who would let a topic to drop where you can blog very much.

So far I haven’t earned any money from affiliate marketing. I thought of visiting several sites and bought few products to get to know more about it. They all talked about three factors that contributed to the success in Affiliate Marketing (I am newbie in this field. So I don’t know much about this.). Well what are these three steps to succeed in Affiliate Marketing?

Promotion Method- This is not at all the first step in Affiliate Marketing but consider it as the first because we would need it in the later steps. There is no use of joining any affiliate marketing company if you don’t have access to a large crowd. Promoting the products is the most important part in bringing sales.

I use this blog to promote products. Blogs are better suited for affiliate marketing. One of my ‘Guru’ (Teacher) earns $18000 and more by just selling products through blogs. Learn more about him. There are several other promotion techniques like using Twitter, Facebook, direct mailing etc. But nothing comes to good effect as Blogs do.

Facebook Ads Guide is a complete guide to learn how to drive traffic by using Facebook Ads. It teaches how to use your Facebook Ads effectively and gain more exposure. Click here to know more.

Finding a Right Product- Well to earn money through Affiliate Marketing you should certainly have to sell some products. Which products do you sell? I would go for something I have used or something valuable for others (usually a low priced). Choosing a right product to sell is usually an uphill task with many people because they are not sure with the promotion method they would approach.

For Bloggers, it is better to choose a product closely related to the niche. People would mind to click the affiliate links if they find it necessary to buy, after reading the post. Product Review blogs have a good chance to be a successful seller. Consider using affiliate links within your posts so that people will click it. Many use banners which won’t bring much effect to the sales.

Expose it to crowd- This is like the blood of affiliate marketing. Give maximum exposure to the products. Use blogs (as mentioned earlier) or social marketing sites like Twitter or Facebook to get more exposure. It is not guaranteed that all the people will buy the products. It depends completely on your skill to impress people about the product.

Tell them what you know about the product and moreover tell them why you recommended it to them. Consider myself as an example. I had a post about RealPlayer SP Plus, which I have been using for over two months. I reviewed about the product and placed some affiliate links in the post.

Something like this will increase the sales. Drive traffic to your blog (if you choose blogs to sell products) using several Blog promotion techniques. You need a large friend list or followers list to get sales from Social Marketing sites like Facebook and Twitter.

These are the three steps in Affiliate Marketing. There are many other steps but these remains to be the primary steps. I used several Affiliate Marketing tutorials to learn about it. Here is one guide which helped me to succeed in Affiliate Marketing.

Mobile Monopoly is a guide teaching you how an 18 year old boy earns $18000 and more each month just by using his mobile. Learn more about affiliate marketing from this guide. Click for more.

Dream High When Blogging

When I was writing my exam last day I struck up with an idea on dreaming and I thought it would be better to tell my readers to dream high (I always have something while writing exams). Somewhere I came to see the following two lines and got inspired very much.

Dream high to succeed in your life. Dream not about the Past instead Dream about your Future.

Yeah it inspired me a lot and thought Dreaming about Blogging will also bring a bright future. It had worked well for me over the past seven months. After reading this post you will get to understand a bright idea of dreaming and taking action accordingly.

I think everyone blogs because of some or other reasons. Some would blog just to share what they know while others go for a business model (to make money). You know Internet Marketing is the best way to earn money from home. There are another important category of people who blogs just as a hobby (myself falls into this category but turned to be an intermediate in this field).

When one enters into this field, they start thinking of getting people to view their Blog. This is normally the goal of every Blogger. Some would look into this seriously and achieve their goals while others just blog for the sake of blogging. This won’t do any better to them or to their Blog. Simply saying, it is a mere waste of time and money. But I think I am different from all those people. I just dreamed from one thing to another and am fulfilling it one by one.

I dreamed of getting constant visitors to my blog, buying a new blog, adding Ads and moreover I want to be in the top list of any niche I chose to work upon. I have fulfilled my dreams one by one. I got to receive daily visitors within three or four weeks after starting this blog (though I lost in the middle). I dreamed of Ads on my blog and AdsDaq provided me what I wanted (Even though I am not earning any money from it, the ads give a unique look to my blog). For your knowledge my current goal is to buy a domain name.

As far as I am considered the best thing a Blogger could do is to dream high about Blogging and implementing it. There is no use of dreaming if you don’t wish to take action. You won’t get success by just dreaming and taking no action. What would you feel if you employ a person who doesn’t do any job but takes his salary on the first day of each month? It will be a complete waste isn’t it? Yeah it is. So take initiative to be a successful blogger.

I dreamed of everything, a normal 16 year old boy from India should not have. I started just like everyone else out there, started just from scrap and didn’t have a single penny to spend. I know there are millions of bloggers out there who lost in the middle. Get up its time to take actions. Be where you want and what you want.

Here are some tutorials I used to learn about Blogging. Take Blogging seriously and you will certainly succeed.

U Wanted 2 Know Blogging is the perfect tutorial for beginner Bloggers. It’s a step by step tutorial on how to build a monetized Wordpress Blog. Check it out.

ProBlogger 31 Days to Build a Better Blog is one of the top selling E-book in Blogging. I recommend the book to everyone starting the Blogging career. A complete tutorial on how to blog. Click here.

RealPlayer SuperPass Plus a Complete Media Player

Note: I apologize for not posting anything for about ten days. Sorry, I was busy with my studies (troubles of a 16 year old boy). Anyhow I am here.

Last day I came to see one of my old acquaintances and talked of many rubbish things and ended up in taking about computer. He asked me to Download Realplayer SuperPass. Now I am pretty much relieved as he came to my home and showed me a great way to view videos (I don’t usually hear audios). I got inspired by RealPlayer and thought of writing a post about it.

Which Audio/Video player would you consider the best? This is what I have to ask to everyone out there. Just think of it.

It will surely be the one that gives you access to a large number of applications with smart and attractive looks. I looked for attractive look in most case. What if you have the best software and looks rubbish. It will only destroy the whole good look of your computer. I used RealPlayer about three or four years ago. But was not able to buy one as I don’t have enough money (But now I have something to spend).

After that version of RealPlayer I can’t find a better suiting one. But now they came up with a good one for people like me who do encourage more applications with good look. I downloaded it when my friend told about it. It is only because I know what it gives me. RealPlayer came up to their standard again and brought up a new advanced player.

Why I use RealPlayer when there is millions of other software? Yeah I too asked the same question to my friend. He told me just to use it and find the answer. I did. For your simplicity I will explain it out here.

Millions of people watch videos daily online. I too did the same and in some times I have downloaded videos about Blogging to help me improve in this field. But finding a right place to download the videos was a bit tricky task. RealPlayer allowed me to download the videos from thousands of websites with just one click. What more do one like me wants?

Another reason I found out was that RealPlayer allowed me to share my videos on Facebook as well as on Twitter. I loved this because it was one way of socializing my blog. Bloggers always love to share what is best (and that is why I am sharing my experience out here). And moreover this is helpful in getting some quick traffic to my blog.


I had downloaded several videos in my life. In many cases I didn’t had the correct player to play these files. But now I have found out Convert Genius which helps me to convert my video files to several other formats. Check it out.  

Have you anyone saw any audio player in my blog. You haven’t. It is only because I didn’t have plugins to do so. CopyPasteAudio makes it easy to add audios to your post in quick time. Take this with you. Click here.


RealPlayer SP Plus delivers the highest quality audio/video. It came with more codec to play almost all types of audio/video files. DVD burning tool helps to move your videos and audios to be stored on DVD/CD. Moreover it came up with a built in music store. What else should one media lover need? Have a look at your own.

Real Network is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. They deliver digital entertainment to consumers through business relationships with mobile operators and other businesses around the world. So there is no need to worry.

You can Download the FREE RealPlayer SP from Here (Note: It does not contain several important features!). If you are satisfied with the free version of RealPlayer SP Sign Up for RealPlayer SP Plus.

Twitter Brought Up Suggestions

Now Twitter has around hundred million users. It was difficult for one to find people of his /her interests. Even I found it difficult to add someone to my follower lists. I used to search by keywords and made most results as followers. Whole damn process.

Now Twitter has launched a new application –“Suggestions for You”. It is available in Facebook and other major social networking sites but came into existence in Twitter only now.

The new feature suggests people you don’t currently follow but you may find interesting. These suggestions may be taken from the people you follow or their followers. They are available on homepage of your ID as well as on Find People section. Moreover, Twitter provided additional facility to choose from the suggestions. The one you don’t want to follow can be hidden and will never be shown again. Cool isn’t it?

“In addition, you will begin to see recommendations for similar users when you view another account’s profile. If you’re interested in a particular user, you might be interested in these other accounts as well.” Twitter quoted. Twitter also brought new Search options. Users matching the search keywords will be shown as Recommendations and can be followed.

Three Million iPad sold

Apple sold three million iPad, just 80 days after its introduction in United States. iPad had caused many revolutions even before its launch. So there is not much to surprise with this news. iPad had turned the user browsing experiences to new level.

“People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month.”

Currently Apple store contains more than 225,000 applications for the Apple iPad. Developers from around the world have added more than 11,000 applications now. The iPad comes in Multi-Touch User interface. Its light weight feature also makes it more users friendly.

Anyhow all of these applications are not freely available but have to be purchased from the Apple store. Even then there is great demand for the product and made Apple the largest Technology Company in the world in quick time.

1.7 Million iPhone 4 Sold In 3 Days

Apple recently announced that they have sold 1.7 million Apple iPhone within three days. The product was launched on June 24 and had a huge response from the crowd. Apple’s new retina display is the most attracting feature of this iPhone which gives stunning text, images and video.

“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”

iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4. It is the latest version of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system.

iPhone 4 is available in the US for a suggested retail price of $199 (US)* for the 16GB model and $299 (US) for the 32GB model in both Apple and AT&T’s retail and online stores, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Wal-Mart stores. iPhone 4 is also available in the UK, France, Germany and Japan and will be available in an additional 18 countries by the end of July—Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Note: The price may vary from time to time and with country. The details are provided by Apple.

It is really unbelievable that a lady who wore T-shirts and Jeans in her college days when grown up wears almost nothing in her good days.

Really unbelievable isn't it? Share your opinion about these pictures.

TechCrunch changed Intense Debate commenting system

TechCrunch had recently changed their commenting system from Intense Debate to a simpler system. TechCrunch is a blog about Technology News and so far they are the best in this field. Intense Debate is a similar company working on easing the commenting tasks in the websites or blogs. Even we are working with their system

TechCrunch has been using Intense Debate for a long time as their commenting system and now they have moved to a much simple system. Don’t know whether it is their own or some other company’s.

Anyhow, there is nothing much difference with TechCrunch. They are much like earlier and their reader’s gets enthralled with each application they provide. And there is not much difference in the number of comments they are getting. As it is a Technology blog getting comment is a difficult task.

They get good number of comments if the topic is more concerning. There is nothing like good or bad topics in TechCrunch. Everything is good out there. The new commenting system is simpler as there is no login or anything like that required. And moreover every comment gets displayed as soon as it is submitted. That is something every blogger would want to have.

HP CEO to resign

HP CEO and President Mark Hurd have decided to resign his position as soon as possible. The Board has appointed CFO Cathie Lesjak as CEO on an interim basis. Lesjak has been working as CFO and as a member of company’s Executive Council since January 2007 and will retain her CFO responsibilities during the interim period.

Hurd’s decision was made following an investigation about sexual harassment against Hurd and HP. The investigation determined there was no violation of HP’s sexual harassment policy.

A Search Committee of the Board of Directors has been created, consisting of Marc L. Andreessen, Lawrence T. Babbio, Jr., John H. Hammergren, and Joel Z. Hyatt, which will oversee the process for the identification and selection of a new CEO and Board Chair. HP’s lead independent director, Robert Ryan, will continue in that position.

A source familiar with the situation told Reuters that Hurd never had sex with the woman and that the expense account issues stretched over two years and amounted to no more than $US 20,000.

"The board investigation found that Mark demonstrated a profound lack of judgment that seriously undermined his credibility and damaged his effectiveness in leading HP and Mark agreed," HP General Counsel Mike Holston said.

Hurd said he felt painful to leave the company after serving five years as top of the company and he felt it would not be good for him to continue in the position after such dramatic incidents. He also said that he knew that he would have to take such decision as the investigation progressed.

Robert Ryan, lead independent director of the Board, said: “The board deliberated extensively on this matter. It recognizes the considerable value that Mark has contributed to HP over the past five years in establishing us as a leader in the industry. He has worked tirelessly to improve the value of HP, and we greatly appreciate his efforts.”

Lesjak will serve as interim CEO until the selection process of the new CEO is complete. Candidates from both inside and outside the company will be considered. The selection of a new chairman will occur in conjunction with the CEO decision.

Meanwhile HP announced preliminary third quarter results and there is an increase in the company revenue by 11% compared with the prior-year period, approximately $30.7 billion rise.
