Who Should Use Myspace Layouts?

If you are familiar with the Internet, you are most likely to have an account on MySpace.
This is an exciting online community, which allows people to have free memberships.


Y

ou can post the profile for free, and there are many options available for this community. There are free MySpace layouts available for all members to use.

a
Anyone having an account on this site should use MySpace layouts.

These layouts come with various themes as well as colors, and all members will find what they want. Some may wonder why they should apply new layouts when there are already default settings on the site. However using MySpace layouts will give a completely new look and feel to the profile.

a
Any member on this site should take some effort and should try and find a good layout that will suit their profile.

Trying to match the profile with some good layout is very important. This is because it will speak volumes about the person’s interests and also outlook towards their presence on the community. Members could be present for networking in various groups.

Thus a member should try and pick an appropriate layout for his profile.
a
MySpace layouts are probably the simplest techniques that one can follow with any site creation.

Each one has a code, and the code has to be copy pasted on to the profile homepage and it is immediately updated. Within a few seconds the profile is sporting a new look and it will make it all the more interesting to read.

This is the greatest benefit for those using MySpace layouts.
a
They may not only access these for free, they can apply it very easily.

Even if you are a fan of a Hollywood movie star, you can find that layout on some site. All you need to do is hunt for it in the right way and on the right site.

If all members use the MySpace layouts that are available on the sites, then they would make the whole community more interesting.
a
People are always navigating through sites, and looking for new friends.

When they access profiles, and they find a layout that they like, they are sure to even apply it to their own profiles. However that is not the main part of MySpace layouts. It is to provide a lot of creativity to the profiles, and also allow the members to get as versatile as they can.
a
While it is not a compulsion for users to pick MySpace layouts, it is always better for people to use a variety.

It would make a huge difference from default settings, as the themes available are simply astounding. Designers are constantly coming up with various layouts, so that members will be satisfied.

The variety will allow the members to have a fine time, what with the choosing and applying.


Why Do We Need Myspace Backgrounds?

Everyone is aware that Myspace is a popular networking site, as there are millions of active users.
There are many great features in this site, and this attracts many users.


T

his is because they are allowed a lot of variety.

When the user signs up there may be very few designs and choices. A user may thus want to customize the profile, and make it look better.
a
There will be plenty of visitors to the profiles, and they must make the profile as interesting as possible.

For this the use of Myspace backgrounds will come in handy. There are several thousands of backgrounds that will give a different feel and look to all the categories as well as entire look of the profile.

The backgrounds can be very simple in nature, they may be of simple colors of they may have various designs.
a
Whatever the design, there is bound to be variety, and users will never be short of backgrounds. This is because they are being updated every day. There are many contributions to these sites that have the backgrounds.

There are several sites that are exclusively available for Myspace backgrounds and there will be many categories too.

A lot of these designs can be mixed and matched as one pleases. They can be of various types, and it is up to a user to use his creativity and pick the best. If the backgrounds are chosen according to the profile, then it will make it more interesting.
a
A lot of time may be needed to customize the backgrounds.

This is because there are several thousands and there are also various categories, so the appropriate category must be chosen. Customizing the backgrounds is very easy as there is only a simple code that needs to be used.

The user has to just copy paste a code into the home page or page where he desires to have the effect.
a
Since this is a very popular site there are many people networking in these sites, and they will want to see different profiles.

If they are very boring they are most likely to just pass it by. So if the user takes a little interest in using good and different backgrounds, they will bring a lot of visitors to the profiles. It also gives a chance for the user to be very creative.

He may choose how to apply the backgrounds according to the nature of the profile.
a
This will also reflect on the nature of the user, and how much care he takes about the presentation. Once this is done well, there are sure to be more visitors to the profiles.

The use of backgrounds is also exciting, as there will be many to choose from, and there will be good experiences with the process. Since Myspace backgrounds are available for free, users may have fun with creating their profile with a better look.


Why that desktop wallpaper after all?

When my parents’ generation used to talk about wallpaper, they meant that piece of colorful paper that would be glued to the walls, instead of painting them.
The wallpaper was preferred to painting because it was sometimes cuter than any pattern that could be created by paint and it was also supposed to endure more than paint.


M

y head is full of images of couples moving into a new house and going to choose the proper wallpaper for the dining room and the children’s room.

They would come back with huge packages in which the wallpaper was wrapped.
a
Nowadays when we say wallpaper we actually mean desktop wallpaper, which is the cover of our computer screen, what we see in front of our eyes when we stop working for a few minutes and close the applications.

For people who spend a lot of time in front of their computers, the desktop wallpaper is much more important than any element of interior design at home.

And, since more and more of us are spending their time in front of the computer, then the desktop wallpaper is a concern for more and more of us.

Most people doing a regular office job would have the typical commonplace desktop wallpaper.
a
The usual desktop wallpaper is a flower, the image of a forest, the sea. Such pictures can be easily found on the Internet and downloaded as free wallpaper on any number of web pages.

The desktop wallpaper becomes more exciting if it belongs to someone who has a specific hobby or to a computer specialist. Then, instead of desktop wallpaper, we actually have a celebration of this or that actor, or a very complicated 3-D image that we cannot easily identify.
a
In these special cases, it may be more difficult to get free wallpaper with the desired image.

True fans will look through hundreds of Internet sites that have an offer for free wallpaper just to find the right desktop wallpaper. And it may not be so easy for them to find the free wallpaper they want.
a
Even if they find the right desktop wallpaper, they may have to pay money for it. Then they will complain that the free wallpaper is not the right desktop wallpaper and that the Internet companies are ripping people off.

In their quest for the best desktop wallpaper, these people will keep changing and changing their desktop wallpaper, so you may end up having a lot of fun just taking a look at their desktop wallpaper every day.
a
You may wonder how come you can find free wallpaper so easy, especially if you have no specific demands.

Who puts that free wallpaper online for unlimited download and why?

Maybe this is not necessarily a question that so many people ask, but it is certainly a question that may pop up in those dead minutes at work when you are trapped until the next report comes in, so you have nothing better to do than stare at your desktop wallpaper and wonder.
a
The truth is that it isn’t important where the free wallpaper comes from. What really counts is the effect it has on us.

It is your desktop wallpaper that makes you relax, smile and sometimes remember. And all of this just because one afternoon you really wanted to put something nice in front of your eyes, to help through some of the more tedious days at work.

You went through many Internet pages with images and found a website with the possibility to download free wallpaper. You finally found one with beautiful images of coffee shops. You like that because it reminds you of how you really like to spend your time instead of being stuck in an office with no air conditioning.
a
You would rather be in a coffee shop chatting with your friends. Then you also remember that on that. The free wallpaper you chose was an image of a coffee cup on a table. You have no more time to stare at your desktop wallpaper. The report is in and you must get down to work.

Free wallpaper brings a smile on our faces from time to time when we can afford a brake from routine.

Whether it reminds us of the wallpaper in our childhood room or whether it makes us relax just thinking of our good moments, free wallpaper is like the coffee we drink in the morning: indispensable.


Will Firefox Win The Browser War?

For as long as you can remember the basic Internet browser was Internet Explorer.
Of course, there was a moment in time when Netscape was trying to get that market share, but Internet Explorer won out and there are many people that don’t realize Internet Explorer is only their browser and they can change if they like.


I

n fact, most folks believe Internet Explorer is the only option for reaching the Internet.
a
However, this is not the case and there is a new kid on the block that is taking advantage of the security issues Internet Explorer has experienced and pulling a significant amount of market share in a short period of time. This newcomer web browser is Firefox.

Firefox is a browser that focuses on opening web sites rapidly while keeping those nasty pop-ups and spyware at bay.
a
Firefox was in its final stages last summer and fortunately for the up and coming browser two federal agencies recommended Internet surfers choose a different browser than Internet Explorer due to security issues IE was facing.

This timing was perfect for Firefox and when it was placed on the web for download there were so many people trying to download at once the server almost could not handle all of the requests.
a
However, Firefox came through and many web surfers switched from Internet Explorer. In fact, Internet Explorer held the market share for web browsers at 95.5%, but has slipped to 92.9% in just the few months Firefox has had its test version on the market.

This might seem like just a few percentage points, but these percentage points represent millions of individuals who have switched from IE to Firefox. In fact, approximately 23 million preview copies of Firefox have been downloaded.

So, what does this mean for IE and Firefox?

Who will win this browser war?

If Firefox continues gaining market share as it has then Firefox might come out on top.

However, if IE works to fix its security problems it can probably hold onto its 90% plus market share. Only the future has the answer, we will just have to wait and see.


Wireless – The Future Of Connecting To The Internet

What is WiFi?


W

ifi or Wireless Fidelity, allows you to connect to the internet from virtually anywhere at speeds of up to 54Mbps.
a
WiFi enabled computers and handsets use radio technologies based on the IEEE 802.11 standard to send and receive data anywhere within the range of a base station.

Wireless is a technology that’s inexpensive, easy to use, and practical and yet… it’s a technology that’s still very young. Here’s a quick look at what the future could hold for wireless.

The Radio and the Phone

Wireless networks will always win over wired ones, if for no other reason, simply because it is much cheaper for signals to travel through the air than it is to install and maintain wires.
a
For example… consider that telephones were originally used for sending and receiving news reports.

When radio was invented, this stopped almost overnight – why bother going to all that expense when it’s free ‘over the air’?

The same principle applies to computer networking.
a
Imagine having a choice between a wired Internet connection and a wireless one.

The only reason to choose a wired connection would be cost because currently it’s cheaper? However, that will change soon.

Wireless is also easier. Once the cost gap closes, if given the opportunity, there’s no logical reason why anyone wouldn’t switch to a wireless connection.

WiMAX

WiMAX is the next generation of wireless. It will use a standard called 802.16. The current standard is 802.11.

It’s still a work in progress, but the possibilities are exciting.
a
WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access and is designed to complement existing wireless equipment… rather than replace it.

The big advantage of WiMAX is that it greatly increases range. Rather than being measured in square meters, which is how the current standard is measured in, WiMAX ranges will be measured in square kilometers.

Some estimates say the best WiMAX stations will be able to transmit up to 50 kilometers or about 30 miles!
a
Clearly, this opens an incredibly wide range of possibilities.

Wireless access would move from LANs (Local Area Networks) to MANs: (Metropolitan Area Networks) covering a whole town or city with wireless access. The question would no longer be if you could connect via wireless, but what WiMAX network you wanted to connect too.

Other benefits of WiMAX include speed of up to 70Mbps (almost 10 MB per second) and better security.
a
Imagine a future where ordering Internet access is as simple as connecting your existing wireless equipment to the network, opening your web browser and buying a low cost subscription.

That’s it – done. No more access points, no more routers, no more configuration… just wireless Internet, anywhere and everywhere at broadband speeds.

WiMAX is in the process of taking the world by storm.

For the latest news on WiMAX visit the WiMAX Forum (a non-profit industry group set up to promote WiMAX) at http://www.wimaxforum.org. WiMAX has been in development since 2001 and the first WiMAX equipment is expected to hit the market in late 2005 or early 2006.

What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a new standard for short range radio connectivity.
a
It is the new and promising field in the wireless communications standardization activities, which will profoundly affect the operation and applications of electronic gadgets of the future.

The most obvious purpose of Bluetooth technology is to replace USB and it’s designed to eventually replace almost every wire there is… except power cables.

What does that mean?

It means that someday your TV could be connecting to your DVD player via Bluetooth or your speakers could connect to your radio with it, and so on and so on.
a
As you get older, expect to see fewer and fewer wires.

I know… people said the same thing about paper but it turns out that people like paper and don’t want a ‘paperless society’. On the other hand, how many people do you know who have cable or wire fetish? The biggest remaining article is reliable wireless power.

When they figure out how to provide reliable wireless power (i.e. better batteries)… look out because the flood gates will really open up.

A Simpler Life

Convenience… the first benefit of wireless technology that comes to my mind.
a
Wires have so many flaws, especially when they go long distances and the overall wireless project is to remove the vast majority of them from our lives.

Of course, another nice benefit will be cost because once wireless if up and going full-bore it will cost less than wire based transmission.

My prediction… within 10 years, wireless access will be making everyone’s life much easier and it will be the norm. The future is wireless!


Wireless Barcode Scanners: The Next Generation Gizmo

Wireless barcode scanners are a clear example of the best just having got better.


Much like Alexander Graham Bell’s wired telephone that got eclipsed by the cordless phone which became a craze across millions of households, wireless bar code scanners have become a mega-hit with an ever-increasing number of business entrepreneurs making the upward shift to realize greater productivity day in day out.
a
To put it simply, wireless barcode scanners offer you all the benefits of your regular barcode scanner or barcode reader and then, some more!

But hold on just yet, while wireless barcode readers and scanners are blitzing the market, you still need to which type of the device you need to best suit your business needs before going ahead and making a purchase.

You need to very clearly articulate the reason for wanting to move into the wireless barcode scanner space and the plausible reasons for wanting to go wireless could be any of the following:-

  • You need the freedom of mobility to be able to capture information away from your computer because of the spatial location of your tagged products
  •  

  • You might want to collect the data away from your computer but be able to sync it or upload it once you get back to the origin i.e. the computer
  •  

  • You might not only want to collect data away from the computer but also be able to log on via wireless networks to a database and post the captured information
  •  

    Thus simply put, do you need a simple barcode scanner with a really long cord or do you have a genuine need for a wireless barcode scanner?
    a
    And once you do a cost comparison on the various types of the barcode readers and barcode scanners, both wired as well as cordless, you will know exactly how much you are paying for what, and how much you are likely to benefit from the application of the device.

    Accurate information capture, ease of the information capture, speed at which different materials can be barcode registered and tagged, exquisite levels of data control are just some of the innumerous benefits that this technology promises for the user!

    a
    Finally a key thing that you need to keep in mind is that implementation of a new technology by itself does not guarantee success.

    You need to handle the change from one level to the next very well and proactively too, as in the case of wireless barcode scanners too. People management as part of change management is crucial to the success of your business and this should be given core focus.

    New technology is useless unless its espoused as a unifying cause by all in the work force.

    Once you have mastered the change in people, you have truly put yourself on the road to progress. Experience the wonders of wireless barcode scanners and be awestruck!


    Things To Keep In Mind When Starting A Home Business

    Things To Keep In Mind When Starting A Home Business

    There are a lot of reasons to start your own business from home.
    The freedom from the corporate world, the ability to make your own schedule, the opportunity to do something that you love for a living are all lures to start up your own business.


    Do not be fooled into thinking that because of all the appeal, starting a home business is an easy prospect.

    There are many considerations in starting up your own business, and many areas that people will not realize when they start out. Having a heads-up about some of these areas can help you avoid some of the pitfalls of the new business owner, and may help to save money and keep the funds coming in in the future.

    Don’t Quit Your Day Job Yet

    This is the cardinal rule in starting up a home business.

    The advantage of this business is that you can run it on your spare time, when you are away from your regular job. Most businesses can expect to lose money in their first year of operation, this is just part of the cost of starting up and the learning curve.
    a
    You will inevitably make misstates, and you will likely have to cut into your market through competition by offering lower rates than you could otherwise expect to gain. It is important that you keep some kind of income flow in order to succeed, so you should not quit a regular job until you are absolutely positive about your new business’ potential.

    Assess your situation after you have been operating for a year; do you have an established base of clients? Is there a potential for more growth? Will the time you gain from leaving your regular job and concentrating on the home business allow you to make greater profits? If the answer to all of these questions is yes, then it might indeed be the time to concentrate solely on your business as your only source of income.

    Set Realistic Targets

    When you start your business, you should have an idea of how much money you would like to make.

    It is best to make these targets on several levels, in terms of time.
    a
    Start out with the most basic- is the hourly rate you are making worth the amount of work you are putting in? Some home business owners will find that a job at minimum wage pays more than they are receiving from their own business. Unless you really enjoy what you are doing, this type of business is probably not worth it.

    Secondly, have a two week amount in mind. This is the standard paycheck period for most people, so you will want to set your amount at whatever you would be earning at your regular job. You can also substitute this with a monthly goal, as some weeks will inevitably be better than others. Finally, consider your yearly goal.

    Do not count your first year when considering whether your business is worth pursuing- as stated above, most businesses will lose money in their first year. Instead, start your yearly analysis in the second year.

    TAXES!!!

    A lot of home business operators neglect to consider their tax burden, whether purposely or not.
    a
    It is best to always set aside a portion of the month’s business income for tax purposes- always operate under the assumption that you will be caught if you try to cheat. This will save you a lot of grief and money in the end.

    A good way to put aside money on the taxes that you will owe is to invest in a safe area such as mutual funds or GICs; this way, your money is safe and you will make a small amount in the year before your taxes are due. In effect, your taxes will actually make you money!

    The World’s Leading Directory of Wholesale Distributors

    From: Wholesale Directory

    Everybody would love to make lots of money quickly, working from home, and only doing a few hours of work per week. I’ve spent the past two years trying to find a great way of doing this.
    a
    Only over the course of the past few months have I found any “get rich quick” programs worth buying. I’ve been trying to make money online for a long time. I had a few small websites, but they never made much more than a few hundred per month. It was easy money and didn’t require much work on my part, but I knew there were people out there doing better than I was and I knew I could do as well as them.

    Now, I’ve seen a lot of “get rich quick” programs. Most of these people make claims about earning $2000/day with Google or something similarly insane. Almost all of these people are complete liars. Even if they were making $2000/day with Google AdSense, it’d be because they had high-traffic websites with a lot of quality content. I’d know, because in one whole month, I never even made half of what they promised I’d make daily with their programs. Maybe you’ve already been scammed by one of these fraudsters. Anyway, I finally got sick of what was being offered.
    a
    I decided I’d look through the all of the “get rich quick” programs I could find and see if there were any that were actually legitimate. I found that there were owners selling their programs for well over $100, but the information in them could be found almost anywhere online for free. Additionally, they all contained out-of-date information, had no e-mail support, no money back guarantees, and broken links in the downloads section.

    In conclusion, almost all of the programs I found were completely useless. The owners knew it, but they couldn’t care less about their customers since they didn’t offer refund policies! Amazingly, while looking through all of the programs, I actually did find a few legitimate programs. They were run by ordinary people like you and me, and they had found some great methods of making money from their home by doing very little work.
    a
    I spent some time working with those programs, and my income is now ten times what it used to be. These programs provided a large amount of great information on how to make extra money on your computer doing very little work. Numerous customers had provided great feedback and reviews for their products. Many of them have started to make money just days after buying!

    Their programs have excellent prices, and the authors have a group of paid staff who are dedicating to helping you or providing assistance if you need any. I must say I was amazed! If you do decide to purchase any of the programs listed below, I recommend you join quickly. Most of the owners tell me they are getting an overwhelming number of sales and plan on raising prices in the near future, so order while prices are still low!

    The Work From Home Internet Business is Booming on the Net

    The Work From Home Internet Business is Booming on the Net

    The work from home revolution on the Internet is in full swing.
    There has never been a better time or opportunity to make money online working at home in front of your computer. The number of money making opportunities is endless.


    With today’s technology it is quite possible to run your entire business online from anywhere in the world using your laptop computer.
    a
    You no longer need to leave your house to make a living for your family. It can be done from the comfort of your own home. No commute required. No travel time with reduced fuel consumption and maintenance on your vehicles. Best of all you are your own boss.

    The amount of people using the internet worldwide continues to increase almost monthly. This bodes well for internet business entrepreneurs and anyone wishing to take advantage of the internet work from home business industry. Global Internet Statistics shows over 800 million people worldwide are now using the internet.

    Just do a search for internet business opportunities on Google or your favorite search engine. You’ll find websites promoting several top Internet home based business products and services from paid surveys online to network marketing and MLM businesses.
    a
    If you already have your own website you can even sign up with Google ad sense and make money displaying Google ad words ads on your site. In fact everywhere you look on the net almost every single site you go to is making money from some form of advertising or work from home business opportunity.

    The internet is forever changing the global job scene and the world economy with new internet opportunities arriving on the internet every day even as you read this.

    a
    We can only hope that this will make the world cleaner and a better place to live with less pollution from automobiles and reduced pollution from factories. This in turn could create a backlash on the economy but it has yet to be seen.

    We all know the reasons behind why we are still using oil and gas rather than clean energy. (It would kill the global economy). Internet business could be just as threatening as electric cars and cars running on fuel cells.

    We are indeed in a revolution. The last revolution was called the industrial revolution. This one is called the information revolution. Or what I like to think of it, the work from home revolution.


    The U-Factor

    The U-Factor

    If you want a home based business or a work at home job, chances are you have done a lot of searching on the internet.
    Let’s face it, the internet is the place to be if you want to make money.


    You have, most likely, read about many different opportunities. You have followed the words and suggestions of some of the web gurus. You have looked at this internet marketing strategy and that affiliate marketing opportunity. Maybe you have gotten confused.
    a
    You have wondered to yourself, “is this legitimate or just another scam?” Can I really make money on the internet? The answer to your questions is yes and no. On the internet, just as in the physical world, there is a bit of everything. There are many choices and many different people looking for choices.

    There are many types of people surfing the net in search of opportunities. They are always looking for that perfect, just right, magical, special opportunity.

    For example, there are the “window shoppers”. The look at every new opportunity, read all the websites, read the reviews, they have them all bookmarked. Maybe they have gone to websites many times. Maybe they have even gone through the order process, just to see how it works. This person hopes and wants but will never take that final step.
    a
    There is also the info junkie. This person wants and hopes and, in fact, takes action. The info junkie gets everything hoping it will make him rich. More times than not, this person suffers from paralysis of analysis. Reading, assessing, double checking, and wants to know everything to the infinite detail before actually doing the business. They want to know everything first from the books and DVD’s piled around doing nothing but collecting dust.

    Next, there is the “jack of all trades”. This person jumps at every opportunity to make money. Their inbox is full of emails from all the new and different ways to make money online. They have so many bookmarks and favorites they forget which are which. The grass is always greener on the other strategy. These people know a little bit about everything when it comes to internet marketing. They go to forums and make posts as an “expert”. It is too bad. This person might be able to succeed but they have no time to get good at anything because they are spending all their time trying to manage excess.
    a
    I once saw a cartoon, in which, a man was hunting a rabbit. It was a very windy day as the two were running through the forest. I theatrical transport truck was driving along a road in the forest and hit a bump. The rear doors flew open and many, many hats blew out the back and into the trees. From time to time one of the many hats would land on the head of the man. He would than take on the personality of the hat, such as a policeman, a soldier, a postman.

    My point in all this is that strategies of many successful entrepreneurs are judged negatively because someone can’t make money with it. I say money can be made with most all of them. The entrepreneurs shares experiences and knowledge that worked for him or her. What they can’t foresee when writing is the wildcard or the YOU-factor. There is no way for them to plug you into their formula.
    a
    If you are a window shopper who researches but never takes action you will never succeed. If you are an info junkie who buys the books and keeps reading and reading but never take action, you will never succeed. If you are a jack of all trades and never commit to one strategy or niche you will have problems succeeding. YOU are the main factor that determines if a strategy will make you money or not.

    I am sure you have heard of Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, arguably the best in the fields. They love what they do and strove to be the best. Someone taught them how to play what they do. They took it from there. Many people learn to do the same things but some take it and excel.

    The point is that with Michael Jordan it didn’t matter which basketball he used or which court he was playing on, he succeeded. Tiger Woods is the best in golf, no matter what clubs he is using or which course he is on. What makes them the best is what is inside them. The YOU-factor.
    a
    You are what make the difference with an internet marketing strategy.

    If you have what it takes you can make anything work. You just must decide which the one for you is. You must decide which strategy excites you. You must make a decision, commit to it, and work it with persistent and consistent desire. These same principles apply whether you are starting an internet business or a conventional brick and mortar business. You take your dream; mix it with a burning desire, and then top it off with action and you are bound to succeed.
