Improved Twitter Sharing feature in TheGreatQuotes.com



As specified in my previous post, we are working on to improve our TheGreatQuotes.com web site further.

Recently we had added lot of new Motivational and Inspiring Quotes to this Great Quotes site, and working on to add more Great Quotes.

Previously we had Twitter sharing button which will call "http://twitter.com/home?status=" for sharing the the Quotes thro' Twitter. Recently we had noticed that this approach of sharing Quotes on Twitter didn't for the Twitter accounts which use New Twitter Interface.

So, we had updated the Twitter Sharing button to use http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=&text= instead of "http://twitter.com/home?status="

This new approach of  "Web Indents" is working correctly for the all Twitter Accounts.  Let me know if you face any issue while using Twitter sharing in TheGreatQuotes.com

According to Twitter, this new approach will  increase the speed of Twitter sharing and in will shorten the url using t.co

    Be aware of the people who spread false message about online business to earn money by selling secrets (which are actually not secrets)


    Today I get a chance to read an article about making money from blogging. It was published in problogger.net as a Guest Post. You can refer this article here.

    This Article is having many comments and almost all comments are describing this article as an inspiring one.

    Are you thinking that their article is really a useful one?

    If your answer is "Yes", it will be clear that you are NOT having enough skills/experience to know the truth hidden behind the false messages.

    Let me explain in detail.

    First, I will let you know why I need to write this post pointing false messages of problogger.net only, while the entire internet is filled with lot of fraud websites.

    The reason is, problogger.net is projecting as genuine website, and more than 174K RSS readers are following problogger.net and they are having lot of facebook page fans and Twitter followers.

    So, anyone seeing problogger.net will believe that whatever published in problogger.net is true. (but actually it is NOT).

    And therefore, I need to write this post for explicitly pointing out the false messages being conveyed by the problogger.net.

    Ok, I think I have explained the reason why I am writing this post to explain the dangers of reading the problogger.net

    Let me next explain about why I am saying that the problogger.net is spreading false messages, and then I will explain why problogger.net is doing this.

    The author of this problogger.net post "Jon Morrow" is claiming that he started getting good traffic for his web site www.onmoneymaking.com within few months and declared that he sold the site for five figures.

    Anyone with some basic knowledge about website sales will easily understand that no one will buy this site for five figures. It will be clear that this person is writing incorrect/false messages in his post.

    You may ask me, how come I can blame the problogger.net for the false messages included in the Guest Post.

    Let me explain the reason.

    I had conveyed my concerns about this Guest post to the Problogger.net thro' the comments section. Till now they haven't taken any initiative to remove this post which is misdirecting the readers by giving false messages.

    And, they haven't even approved my comments. So, it is obvious that problogger.net is intentionally spreading this false message so that their readers will be thinking that there should be some secrets available for making huge money from blogging. And, again you may ask, how problogger.net will get benefits doing this?

    If you go thro' the problogger.net, you will find the answer easily. They are selling books such as "Secrets for Bloggeing your way to a Six-Figure Income". Now you got the answer, correct?


    Based on my understanding, there won't be any secret in making money from your blog. You will freely get all the tips and tricks for making money from your blog if you do some Google search or participate any healthy discussion in Forums such as digitalpoint forums.

    In short, don't believe the people who are trying to cheat you by saying that you can get secrets for making huge money from your blog if you buy any book from them.

    Do you agree with me? Or, you still believe that you can buy secrets for making money online? You can share your thoughts thro' the comments.

    HostGator Hosting is now available in India also.



    In my previous post I had  explained my experience about moving the hosting to inform everyone about the importance of choosing reliable hosting provider.

    Till now I haven't faced any issue with HostGator hosting and their support is really good.

    HostGator is seeing incredible growth since launching in 2002. Currently it is one of the 10 largest hosting companies in the world.

    And, it is expanding, both in the USA as well as internationally. Now it is launching HostGator India, www.hostgator.in


    HostGator India will providing local hosting with servers in India, localized support from India Office which is located in Nashik, Maharashtra., India.

    The Indian office works 24x7 and provides technical as well as sales and billing support.

    The latency to the Indian servers from within India and Asia is very low.
    And, the network path is also very short and it never travels out of India, so an international broken backbone will never affect access to the sites hosted in HostGator India.




    Currently it is billing US dollars and Hostator India is having plans to bill in Indian Rupee and also planning to accept payment via local banks using netbanking or via local debit cards.

    And, currently Hostgator India is keeping the schemes and  price same as Hostgator.com except the service charge difference. So, many people are saying that this is the indirect way of Hostgator for outsourcing its operations to Non-US country. What do you think about it? You can share your thoughts thro' the comments. In any case, I believe it will give benefits to everyone.

    You can use Coupon code QUALITYPOINTHG to get $9.94 OFF, or you can use QUALITYPOINT25 to get 25% OFF for  Host Gator Hosting.

    Apple iOS Developers Face Patent Lawsuit for In-App Upgrades




    Lodsys, a patent licensing company has been threatening to pursue action against iOS developers that have allegedly infringed on the company's patents.

    Lodsys is claiming the rights for a "upgrade" button which will be useful to jump from a lite or free version of an application to a paid version. Refer the  patent (7,222,078) "Methods and systems for gathering information from units of a commodity across a network ".

    Many iOS developers have already received FedEx-delivered stacks of paper (up to 100 pages) from Lodsys threatening a lawsuit.

    And, they allegedly have 21 days to work out some kind of licensing agreement with Lodsys before facing it in Court.

    Anyway, the developers can not have any contract with Lodsys without Apple's explicit permission.
    So, they have to forward the papers to Apple and let the Apple sort it out.

    A number of the developers have referred the claims to Apple's legal department, on the basis that they have built their apps using Apple's developer toolkit.

    Now the question is.why Lodsys is going after developers instead of Apple itself. If you know the answer, you can share the details thro' the comments.

    Lodsys is  a Texas based patent licensing company for inventions developed by Dan Abelow  who sold five of his patents outright in 2004: Four of these patents went to Lodsys and one to a company called Webvention which may be owned by Lodsys itself.

    Google Blogger Blogs faced issues for around 20 hours yesterday. We were not able to publish any new posts, and comments were also disabled.

    Because of this Blogger issue, one of our Blog post about "Indian Civil Service Exam results" was not appearing yesterday.

    It seems Google Blogger issue got solved now.

    Blogger Buzz blog has posted below updates about this issue.

    What a frustrating day. We’re very sorry that you’ve been unable to publish to Blogger for the past 20.5 hours. We’re nearly back to normal — you can publish again, and in the coming hours posts and comments that were temporarily removed should be restored. Thank you for your patience while we fix this situation. We use Blogger for our own blogs, so we’ve also felt your pain.

    And, Blogger has explained the details about what has happened.

    ...during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts. Yesterday we returned Blogger to a pre-maintenance state and placed the service in read-only mode while we worked on restoring all content: that’s why you haven’t been able to publish. We rolled back to a version of Blogger as of Wednesday May 11th, so your posts since then were temporarily removed. Those are the posts that we’re in the progress of restoring.


    And, Google Blogger is giving commitment for preventing this problems in future.

    Again, we are very sorry for the impact to our authors and readers. We try hard to ensure Blogger is always available for you to share your thoughts and opinions with the world, and we’ll do our best to prevent this from happening again.

    Now, I believe all our blog posts are appearing correctly with comments option. Let me know if you still see any issues in our blog posts.

    I am using this Blogger blog as my primary blog/site even when we have lot of our own domains/sites, by hoping that Blogger will be more reliable than our own sites.  But these kind of issues affect this Hope.

    Have you faced any problem due to this Blogger issue? You can share your experience thro' the comments.

    Actually, Yesterday I wanted to publish a blog post about India State Election results. But I couldn't do it. So, today only I published the post about India Election results.

    Microsoft buys Skype for $8.5 Billion. Will this acquisition affect Google?



    Microsoft has agreed to buy Skype Technologies SA for $8.5 billion in cash to get the VoIP company Skype with its 663 million customers.

    Skype is the  the world’s most popular Internet calling service. It was founded in 2003 by Swedish entrepreneur Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis.  Skype is providing free online chat services and  premium services such as group video calling. Google Talk service  is the closest competition for the Skype services.


    In 2008, at the time of global economic recession, Skype became the largest carrier of international phone traffic for the first time.

    While international phone traffic fell sharply, Skype carried 33bn minutes of international calls  in 2008.  It is about 8 per cent of total international voice traffic.

    The Washington-based telecoms consultancy TeleGeography estimates that Skype’s international traffic volume grew 39bn minutes in 2010, more than twice the volume gain achieved by all telephone companies in the world, combined.

    Skype has taught millions of callers that they no longer need a  telephone company to talk to friends, family, and business partners abroad.

    Microsoft will acquire Luxembourg-based Skype from an investor group led by Silver Lake.
    The agreement was approved by the boards of directors of both companies.

    It seems Microsoft is planning to use Skype’s services to attract web users and to narrow Google's lead in Internet advertising.

    Ann Winblad, managing director of Hummer Winblad Venture Partners Calls Microsoft Acquisition of Skype as `Brilliant'

    Microsoft is NOT the first company to buy Skype. Skype was bought by eBay in 2005 for $3.1 billion, and eBay then sold the majority of its stake in 2009 to a private investment group for $1.2 billion less than it paid.

    JPMorgan  and Goldman Sachs are advising Skype on its $8.5 billion acquisition by Microsoft.

    Microsoft did not use a financial advisor. It uses its own corporate dealmakers.

    For microsoft, the Tightly-integrated Skype services could be an added selling point for Windows Phone 7 which is Microsoft's Mobile operating system competing with Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS.

    And, currently Skype supports various platform. Since Microsoft is going to take over Skype,  we can not expect continuing of this multi-platform support. Either Microsoft may stop supporting non-windows platforms, or they may not take care of the support/enhancements for the non-windows platforms such as MAC and Linux. But regulatories may not allow this deal if Microsoft is not willing to continue the multiple platform support of Skype. Let us see how it is going.



    Do you think that this acquisition will affect Google Talk services or Android OS of Google? You can share your thoughts thro' the comments.

    Experts are saying that this is the first good business made by Microsoft.

    You can see below the one person's comment in a LinkedIn Discussion about this Deal.

    It was the first good business made by Big M since 2006. It takes Microsoft in a leadership position in the strategical voip market and it strikes hardly its two main competitors. By the way probably Apple has a good hand and may gnaw an interesting percentage of the market. We can't say the same about Google which GTalk service had not persuaded a rilevant quote of the target. This acquisition will slow down Google. However the very victim of this move will be Nokia. From now on Voip main market will be the mobile's. While Google, Microsoft and Apple compete with Nokia in the smartphone field, they own strong intellectual properties and OSystems that works on different companies products. Nokia don't and it has not an effective voip software. So it will feel the blow.
