YouTube FEATURE of The Day

Marshall Islands
, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), is a Micronesian island nation in the western Pacific Ocean, located not far off Nauru and Kiribati .

The country consists of twenty-nine atolls and five isolated islands. The most important atolls and islands form two groups: the Ratak Chain and the Ralik Chain (meaning "sunrise" and "sunset" chains). Two-thirds of the nation's population lives onMajuro (which is also the capital) and Ebeye. The outer islands are sparsely populated due to lack of employment opportunities and economic development. Life on the outer atolls is generally still fairly traditional, and the nutrition of the rural population, consuming food that is either grown or caught, is superior to that of most of the urban residents, who rely considerably on white rice. A majority of the islands' land mass is at sea level.

The climate is hot and humid, with a wet season from May to November. The islands occasionally suffer from typhoons. Many Pacific typhoons start in the Marshall Islands region and grow stronger as they move west toward the Mariana Islands and the Philippines.

The Marshallese are of Micronesian origin and migrated from Asia several thousand years ago. Although English is an official language and is spoken widely, though not fluently, Marshallese is used by the government.
Virtually all Marshallese are Christian, most of them Prostestant.

My feature today is about a place that I would want to be in future for holiday. I knew about this Island since I was a kid. Maybe because of the name. If you want to see more of Marshall Island, check it out using Google map and use the satellite map and you can zoom down as much as 50 m from the sky. What you 'll see is a stunning view of this beautiful paradise.

Why I Share General Knowledge

I share it back with all my readers and my friends too. What you read everyday is something that I came across on the day or sometimes ago . This blog is like my internet diary with topic range from latest software, YouTube videos, Internet business, my affliation partners to making money online .

Being able to meet a lot of people everyday in Kuala Lumpur basically when comes to computer knowledge most of them know how to use it and mainly on applications such as E-mail, Chatting, games ( a 7 years old boy can beat the hell out of you online, like my nephew) videos and some other applications. I believes those bloggers staying here in KL knows what I'm saying . Many only know the basic usage of a computer, like my sis, when we bought this computer home that I'm am still using today. She started from zero knowledge except e-mail and today after 3 something years you can check out how she's doing at

It takes time to learn to be better for many including me. Thank God I started in the early days in the Internet Cafe era in Subang Jaya back in 97 - 98. It take my sis a while before she can come up with her own ideas. John Chow dot com was on the internet since year 2000.
It was totally a black n white layout and until Jan 2006 the heading page layout of John Chow Dot Com look like this

What an amazing year. I started 2005 living out of a rented house and single. I end 2005 owning two houses and engaged to a wonderful woman who has inspired me and challenged me to go beyond what I thought was possible.

The turning point of 2005 happened in June when I was vacationing in Shanghai. I was at the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower and that’s when I asked Sarah to marry

Have you ever looked at a digital camera full of photos and thought those photos aren't going to upload themselves? Well, now you can with the latest Eye-Fi.

Eye-Fi has created a memory card with a built-in WiFi transmitter that will automatically upload your photos to any of 17 photo sites when you are within range of a designated wireless network. The 2GB SD memory card looks like any other, but it has a small antenna and WiFi service inside.

The card must be in the supplied card reader and formatted to recognize the right network. If you use photo sharing site like Shutterfly, Flickr or Facebook, the card will send photos over the Internet to Eye-Fi, which then formats them for the site you use and it also automates sign-in and passwords so that your photos seem to appear magically.

The Eye-Fi card and reader is available online from Amazon and it can also be set up to send photos directly ti your computer, if you want to be selective about what gets shared.

Real Facts About Making Money Online

An article from This is one site where beginners can learn the real way of making money online

Let's start with "Google Adsense" and Blogs.

This is the cheapest and fastest way to get started making money online. You can set up a blog for free. Google will provide advertisements for your blog for free. You will earn an immediate commission from Google each time some one clicks an advertisement on your blog. Once you get your blog up and running you can diversify with affiliate marketing and other methods of making money. A blog is very simple to manage. The new Blogger (just out of Beta) program (owned by Google) is a beginners dream as a complete computer illiterate can set up a blog just following the onscreen directions. Once you have a blog you will then learn how to market it - get traffic to your site. When you have learned how to do this you can transfer this knowledge to websites and other online ventures. A blog will teach you the basics and you can learn without spending gobs of cash in the process.

I'm sure you have seen screenshots of people who are making hundreds of dollars a day from adsense. Is this bullsh*t? Nope. They earn what they say but beware that they are not telling you the whole story.

There are several strategies for making money with Google Adsense but let's look at the two most common.

1)Using Adwords or other paid advertising to generate traffic to your Adsense sites and hence generate Adsense clicks.

2) Getting free traffic using SEO techniques (Search Engine Optimization) and harnessing the power of multiple Blogs to generate Adsense revenue.

So what is the trick?

Using Adwords

This is what they don't tell you.

A lot of those screen shots show you the money they brought in. They never tell you how much they spent to earn that income. They may make $600 a day but if they are using adwords to generate traffic then they likely spent several hundred a day as well. They always show you the gross, not the net. This doesn't mean that they aren't making a profit - they are or they wouldn't continue day after day - but that their profit is a lot less than they lead you to believe. This is done in order to make you believe that the product they are selling will help you generate profits of $600 a day. If they were completely honest they would admit that it might generate SALES of $600 a day - not PROFITS.

Using free traffic

This is what they don't tell you.

This is the best way for a beginner to start out. Build a blog on a particular niche(topic), create good quality content for it, have Google index and rank your page high for your keyword (topic) and sit back as Google sends hordes of visitors to your site. Finally, count your money from all the Adsense clicks. Right? Well almost.

This is the procedure but they don't tell you that to make serious money at this you will need to create thousands of blogs. Yes, you heard right. Your main blogs will be decent pages addressing the needs of your visitors and suitable for marketing products. The majority of the blogs however, will be set up to simply generate Adsense clicks and provide links to help your main blogs get ranked. The articles will be unique but crappy and visitors that end up on these blogs will quickly leave - hopefully by clicking an ad that will take them to where they were trying to go in the first place. This is called spam blogging and as unethical as it seems, it is how you make a lot of money with Adsense. No one talks about this aspect of making adsense profits. No one wants to admit that they use this tactic and yet this is the only way to generate a lot of money with Adsense with out spending money to get traffic (Dot Com Holdings of Buffalo, Inc)

YouTube FEATURE of The Day

Has anyone heard of Jonas Anderson or Christy Gibson? While many have no idea who they are, Jonas and Christy is some of the most popular singers in Thailand. So far, Jonas has released 5 albums and Christy has released 3 (including a duo album together). In world where Thai and foreign pop is taking over, it's extremely refreshing to hear some Luktoong ( Thailand's
Country Songs ) .

Jonas Anderson is from Sweden and moved to Thailand when he was 9, and moved to Nakhon Ratchasima where he was exposed to Luktoong. He not only speaks Thai fluently, but also has learned to speak Isaan. He became quite popular in Sweden a few years back, and the Swedes are very proud of him.

Christy Gibson is half-Dutch and half-British and has a similar story as Jonas. She moved to Nakhon Ratchasima when she 6 and soon also exposed to Luktoong. She is also fluent in Thai, and has like Jonas, embraced Thai culture and the Thai ways.

Today YouTube feature a video of their most popular song from their duo album. Watch it and what do you think about them? You think that they can beat native Thai singers?
I think they're awesome ( they sing Luktoong waaay better than the Thais I know, even after drinking some Singha beers . Check it out .

Get $20 Free Click From BIDVERTISER

Currently Bidvertiser is offering $20 in free clicks if you sign up with them. All you need to do is to place a Referral button or a text link on your site and you will start to earn money when a user clicks on your button or link and signs as an advertiser or a publisher.

When a user signs as an advertiser and first spends $10, Bidvertiser will credit your account with $5 and when that same advertiser spends $50, you will be credited with an additional $20. When a user signs as a publisher and first earns $10, Bidvertiser will credit your account with $10. When that same publisher earns $50, you will be credited with an additional $40. Good money eh ?

If you have your own website or blog, you may have Bidvertiser button installed on your page as a good source of income. I have tried out using the free $ 20 free click from Bidvertiser and I managed to get some good response from it ( a total of 50 visitors and some signed up on my other free affiliations and 1 buyer of my Only In Malaysia Mah e-book affiliation ) and of course if you do not want to continue or hold on after you reached the limit of $ 20 you can pause your ad or delete it .

Many blogger is using Bidvertiser for getting their traffic especially when they have so many to offer in their blog and beside getting new subscribers and readers they will normally get a number of clicks from their Google Ad Sense, Bidvertiser or other sites. This is because regular blog readers normally do not clicks on ads. They just like your blog or articles and keep coming back for more post. Normally the one that clicks on ads are those new visitors to your blog or those using search engines and looking for particular subject or item. If you are interested and want to sign up as an advertiser or a publisher you can do so for free with the link below.

The Babel Fish Translation Tool

Fancy getting your blog translated into various language around the world? Then Babel Fish Translation is the answer to it. The Babel Fish is actually a creature in the book 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' by Douglas Adams. When placed in a person's ear, it allows him or her to understand any and all languages spoken.

The Babel Fish Translation tool uses machine translation technology to translate sentences in one language into another language and can translate either text or full pages from the internet. Machine translation on the other hand is a computer program which automatically analyzes the meaning of a sentence and attempts to produce a sentence in a different language which conveys the same meaning. No computer program can translate correctly 100% of the time, but machine translation is useful to get the basic ideas of a sentence.

To improve the accuracy of the text translations, make sure you use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation for the highest quality translations and avoid slang and use short, clear sentences.
