Browsing the Net Through Your Email Client

There are instances, in office settings, that employees are allowed to have email but not internet access. In this case, webinmail will be extremely useful to bypass this prohibition in accessing “public” websites. By public, it means web pages that are readily available without requiring an account and login just like friendster and facebook.

To request a web page by email, send an email message to browse@webinmail.com and the url in the subject line. By sending a message to the same email address and leaving a word or phrase in the subject line (not the url), webinmail will return a rediff search result for such term/word/phrase. To use google, change the subject line to “google:query” replacing query with your query keyword.

One more good thing about this service is that the web page that’s sent to your inbox, the links in the page are already converted to “mailto:” to facilitate more convenience if you want follow up web page requests.

Synchronize Files from Office and Home Machines using Dropbox

Oftentimes, you find yourself needing to keep, access and update files from workstations at the office as well as from a computer back home. These files can be work related, a password keeper, or maybe media files like photos you want to share with officemates or friends.

One solution is to bring with you a portable device like a usb flash drive to dump the files into for further access and edit. However, bringing a flash drive around can prove to be a hassle with the inconvenience of plugging and safely removing the device from the computer. Unless you hang this thing around your neck all the time (i.e., if you find it a good fashion accessory), you’ll oftentimes find yourself looking around for it and racking your brains trying to remember where you last left it, in your pocket, in your bag, in your cabinet, or maybe the trash can.

Thankfully, now there’s dropbox.

NBA 2K9 for PC; NBA Live 09 is Not

[adsense]

UPDATE: I DON’T MAKE COPIES OF THIS GAME. I’M NOT AUTHORIZED AND I DON’T HAVE THE DVD WITH ME ANYMORE. GET YOURSELF A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORES LIKE IN MAKATI SQUARE OR IN QUIAPO. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GET YOUR ASS TO YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORE, THEN BETTER GET LOST!

NBA 2K9 is now available for PC. EA’s NBA Live 09 isn’t anymore.

I’m not sure about the marketing strategies of these two competing NBA video game products.

But I’m quite surprised with the move of the NBA Live Series, the game that I’ve learned to love, and I’ve learned to hate as well.

Gmail Chat Now Have Voice and Video Chat

Say hello to Gmail voice and video chat.

Gtalk, which is a desktop application for chatting and voice chat (as differentiated to Gmail chat, which is a built in chat function within Gmail), already used to offer voice chat.

This time, Gmail chat offers voice chat plus the VIDEO CHAT.

Now, Gmail chat surely is a great (and maybe even better) alternative to YM.

Rekindling My Love for Photography

I bought two photography magazines today, hoping to rekindle my lost (I hope really not) love for photography.

I have not been shooting for quite some time already. And I thought buying the latest issues of Digital Photographer Philippines (DPP) and I-Mag Photography, both from local publishers, would help me go out and shoot.

Looking forward to more photo opportunities in my trip to Baguio sometime next week.

Desktop Application for Remember the Milk

I once posted about the web application, Remember the Milk (RTM), which enables users to organize their tasks better.

I have to admit, I used the application but oftentimes than not, I hit the “Postpone” button.

Anyway, I have been searching and always on the watch out for any desktop application for RTM that would make access and edit of my tasks more speedy and convenient. There are various RTM services that can integrate into various applications and services, such as but not limited to, Gmail, Google Calendar, IM’s, Blackberry, Mobile access, iGoogle, Twitter, etc. There have also been hacks for a desktop application, some using Adobe Air, but most of the time they have compatability issues with XP or Vista and other operating systems, or simply limited in functionality (i.e., the functions you can actually utilize while in actual RTM homepage, just like adding due dates, list, tags, url, etc.). Some applications are just being so slow.
