Safari 5 Extensions That Are Purely Awesome

July 15, 2010

SAFARI FRICKEN 5!!

So everyone has heard the big discussion about Apple’s latest version of Safari. TOday I’m going to be going over one of the biggest new features that has really caught my attention. EXTENSIONS!

Anyone and everyone who is an online enthusiast, like my self, knows that the better the web browser, the better the experience you receive. Now I’ve always been a really big Safari fan, but sometimes I want to have the connivence of sending a tweet from the current window I’m on or read my emails instantly. So, I would venture over into the firefox side of town and get my guilty pleasure of using the widgets. While using firefox, I would enjoy the widgets but not enjoy the ugly interface that firefox brings to you. If you click on something it puts the ugly Windows border around it. When you go from page to page, the speed is SUPER slow. I just didn’t like the experience. But now……… Safari 5 brings everything that I have ever wanted, right there, at my finger tips.

The widgets on firefox and chrome are now called “Extentions” on Safari. These extentions are little features that will make you love APPLE even more than you already do. So, I have compiled a list of some of my favs. Here the are:

So, thats it! I know, not that many! There’s not that many out there right now. So… thanks for reading and AS ALWAYS…. COMMENTS ARE WELCOME! See you later! 😀

How-To Make The Perfect Cup Of Tea

July 14, 2010

The perfect cup of tea has always been one of the many mystery’s of the world. So today I thought I might as well give you my recipe for the perfect cup o’ tea. So, here it!

Step 1:

Get a cup of water boiling in a normal cooking pot on your stove. (You can also use a tea kettle to do this.)

Step 2:

While your waiting for the water to boil, go ahead and prepare you tea in a cup. Simply get a coffee cup out of the cabinet and put a tea bag at the bottom of it. Simple, right?

Step 3:

Slowly empty the boiling water into you coffee cup with the tea in the bottom. Make sure you hit the center of the tea bag while pour, this will ensure that you get the flavoring that you like.

Step 4:

Now, as soon as you are done pouring the water, add the amount of sugar that you like and stir for a couple of seconds. It should dissolve fairly quickly because the water is still extremely HOT!

Step 5:

Wait until its cooled down and enjoy!

So, thats it! I hope that you enjoyed! If so, please leave me a comment telling me what you think. ENJOY!

How-To make a blog!

July 14, 2010

Well, well, well. We meet again. Today’s How-To is going to be, How to make a blog! So, lets go ahead and start.

The first thing you need to do to make a  blog is, figure out what your going to be blogging about. If you have no idea what your going to blog about, then your screwed :-D. You need to think of at least the topic.

The second thing you need to do is choose a platform. There a hundreds, maybe even thousands of blogging platforms for you to choose from. So instead you making you Google it, I listed a the top 5 below.

  1. WordPress
  2. Blogger
  3. Posterous
  4. Tumblr
  5. Livejournal

In my opinion, I would choose wordpress. It has the most flexibility and customization and is just awesome! Its also the top rated!

Now, moving on the last thing you need to do is choose one and START BLOGIN’. Making blog posts often is beautiful! The more posts you have, the more comments and readers you’ll get! Cool, right?

So there you go, how to make a blog! Hopefully this has helped you in some way and you’ll come crawling back for more. Thanks for reading and make sure to leave me a comment telling me what blogging platform you choose and why. Thanks for reading, and umm… bye!

Meet The New Digg – Digg Alpha

July 14, 2010

Welcome indeed, to the brand new digg! The new digg “Alpha” as they call it. Digg.com is a place for finding new, fresh and mostly funny blog posts, videos, pictures, on the web! The only down fall of the site was the lacking features. There wasn’t a follow/following system. There wasn’t a like or dislike system. The list goes on and on! But now, after month’s and month’s of developing, the Digg team has kinda made the new design live. You can now ask to be invited to the new digg, cleverly named “Digg Alpha”.

The new site has many, many, MANY new features that It lacked before. So, lets just dive right into it!

  1. The first thing that really blew my mind was the sweet new homepage. Its now has a “Submit Link” right there in your face on almost every page.
  2. The second thing that caught my eye was the “Recent Activity” panel on the left hand side. This allows you to see what your friends are up to.
  3. Then, the third thing you you automatically see when you arrive at the page, is the words “Following” and “Followers” . Yes, this is just like twitter! Not a copy, but just a very huge feature!
  4. Then after seeing the follow and following, you see a “Top News” section. Almost like the Trending Topics, except its the Trending Diggs. 😀
  5. Now, the moment that you all have been waiting for… Fifth! The fifth and last thing that I really enjoyed was the like buttons, or as Digg calls them: the “Digg” buttons! These are on every link submitted and every comment so you can see the good comments first, instead of reading the trolls comments first!

Well, that basically wraps it up! In my opinion, I LOVE THE NEW DIGG!! But its yours that counts! So please fill out the poll below and leave a comment! I have also compiled some screenshots that you guys may want to see of the new digg. Click here to download the zip file!  Thanks guys! You ROCK!!

Well, here it is!
