Google Buzz! The New Facebook?

10 02 2010

//Yeps … another quick post on Google, hope the next post will not be on Google, lol!!  Well… Well …Who is not on Facebook? Apparently most of us have a Facebook profile. Hmm … now Google is joining a race that has started years ago, with its new Google Buzz, a new social component (built in G Mail). What is Google Buzz?

Watch the video below to have a better idea!

I found it cool, but most of my friends on Facebook have a Hotmail or Yahoo account. I don’t know why most girls have a Yahoo account, lol. And Google buzz required a Gmail address; I don’t think that Facebook devotees are going to switch to Gmail just for this. Hope it will not end up like Google Profiles; clean, simple and good looking but no one use them!

There’s no guarantee that Google is going to be successful with this new service but who knows!! I am still waiting for the “Buzz” to appear on my Gmail profile :(. I will try to update(Update: G.Buzz is not that interesting :() this post later on. Stay tuned and Happy Buzzing 😉

Try Google Buzz





YouTube Server in Mauritius

6 02 2010

//Yeps, again…. another quick post, lol. A friend of mine just told me that videos on YouTube are loading super fast. I’ve checked it out and wow… watching videos on YouTube is just WOW!!! YouTube videos load pretty fast, no need to wait “for years” now. Is there a mirror server somewhere in Mauritius or it’s something else? Hmm, la question se pose.

P.S: Thanks ‘<% @-way %>’ for the tip and Google Rocks. 😉





Google 5 Privacy Principles. Really?

28 01 2010

//Another short post!! Well … Today Google published “5 Privacy Principles” to give us an idea on how they handle our private information. Truth or Fiction? I will let the Take a seat, enjoy the video and finally ask yourself this question “Is that true?”.

Btw, Happy Privacy Day ;).





HTML5 on YouTube

21 01 2010

//Yeps, a quick post for today!…. You hate to keep downloading the flash player plug-in? Well…. This will not be a problem anymore; YouTube now supports (mostly) HTML5 videos. With HTML5, you will be able to watch videos (HTML5 supported videos) without Adobe Flash Player.

Visit this page to join the HTML5 Experiment.

Once activated, check out this video, (Use Google Chrome, it supports the <video> tag in HTML5). Btw, the new player design looks cool, lol.

What is HTML5?

HTML5 is the next major revision of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web, ~Wikipedia. Want to know more? Check out this video(features you want desperately but still can’t use).

Finally… great to get rid of flash and happy to see YouTube begin to support HTML5. HTML5 Rocks 😉





Download The Pirate Bay Now

Host Intruder

//Well … You have probably noticed that The Pirate Bay website was frequently down these days, sometimes it’s some DNS issues, sometimes it’s the RIAA and we don’t really know when the website will be passed onto its new owners.

Anyway, we know that the end of The Pirate Bay is not too far, to be on the safe side it’s better to have a copy of the world’s largest bit torrent tracker on your computer.

Everyone can download it directly from The Pirate Bay, packed into a massive torrent amounting to 21.3GB and which points to “terabytes-worth” of data. Wonder how much time it will takes to download this here, in Mauritius.

Grab your own copy Now: Download The Pirate Bay

Btw, check out how to “Triple Torrent Download Speed” in Mauritius.

P.S. This package contains approximately 873,671 torrent files and don’t forget to seed.
