I have seen ad of SpicyBids.com in Google. SpicyBids attract users to show their attractive product in low cost. I had purchased bids upto Rs. 21000/-. I had bids on many products however they increase the bids and suddenly stop the auction and declare a winner. I have observe the system a few people always win a bids. Spicybids is a fraud website. The concept behind the fraud is to make people bid and do not give them any products. And they charge for each bid.
In between when I have purchased a bids and sent a mail to SpicyBids.com that I don’t think so you’re genuine website and I want my money back whatever I had left in my account they denied to pay me and I had to bids on products.
SpicyBids.com site should be banned.
Surprising as it sounds, it looks like the English alphabet will be losing one of its letters on June 1st. The announcement came from the English Language Central Commission (ELCC).
Here is a quote from the press release:
After carefully considering and debating the matter for over two years, the ELCC came to the conclusion that the letter “Z” should be removed from the English alphabet. The main objective of this change is to simplify the phonetic aspect of the language, and to unify the American and British spellings.
What will happen to the words that have the letter “z” in them? It depends on the word. According to the ELCC, words that started with a “z” will now start with an “x”. Examples include:
· zero becomes xero
· zoo becomes xoo
· zone becomes xone
· zodiac becomes xodiac
Words that featured a “z” with the “s” sound, on the other hand, will now be officially written with the “s” (i.e., unifying the American and British spelling). Examples include:
· visualize becomes visualise
· analyze becomes analyse
· materialize becomes materialise
Joomla is most powerful open source content management systems in the world. Joomla 1.6, many important features have been added like ACL, automatic updates, infinite categories a new highly usable wordpress-like backend and improved SEO.
The real meaning of success — and how to find it.
It’s time to define the new era. Our faith has been shaken. We’ve lost confidence in our leaders and in our institutions. Our beliefs have been tested. We’ve discredited the notion that the Internet would change everything (and the stock market would buy us an exit strategy from the grind). Our expectations have been dashed. We’ve abandoned the idea that work should be a 24-hour-a-day rush and that careers should be a wild adventure. Yet we’re still holding on.
We’re seduced by the idea that picking up the pieces and simply tweaking the formula will get the party started again. In spite of our best thinking and most searing experience, our ideas about growth and success are mired in a boom-bust mentality. Just as LBOs gave way to IPOs, the market is primed for the next engine of wealth creation. Just as we traded in the pinstripes and monster bonuses of the Wall Street era for T-shirts and a piece of the action during the startup revolution, we’re waiting to latch on to the new trappings of success. (I understand the inclination. I’ve surfed from one boom to the next for most of my working life — from my early days as a bond trader to my most recent career as a writer tracking the migration of my generation from Wall Street to Silicon Valley.)

On its sixth birthday, Facebook launched a host of new features as it crossed the 400-million user mark.
The most interesting of them may be its revamped search. When you type in names, it auto-completes for people who are the closest to you by social promixity — e.g. the people you share the most mutual friends with. Not only that, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that search indexes content like Pages and Applications two degrees out in your social graph. That means your friends (one degree) or your friends’ friends (two degrees).
You’ll also have the option of seeing more content like status updates and posts through search, as long as it’s supposed to be visible to you through privacy settings. With the new privacy settings and more public content, search should figure increasingly prominently in the user experience, as it will be able to surface more and more content over time.
There is also a new photo-uploader accessible from the front page that makes it faster and easier to post new photos to the site. There’s also a games and applications dashboard, which replaces older game notifications. We’ve covered it more in-depth here.
Google plan to begin phasing out support of these older browsers on the Google Docs suite and the Google Sites editor on March 1, 2010. After that point, certain functionality within these applications may have higher latency and may not work correctly in these older browsers. Later in 2010, Google will start to phase out support for these browsers for Google Mail and Google Calendar.
Google Apps will continue to support Internet Explorer 7.0 and above, Firefox 3.0 and above, Google Chrome 4.0 and above, and Safari 3.0 and above.
Starting this week, users on these older browsers will see a message in Google Docs and the Google Sites editor explaining this change and asking them to upgrade their browser. Google will also alert you again closer to March 1 to remind you of this change.
In 2009, the Google Apps team delivered more than 100 improvements to enhance your product experience. Google is aiming to beat that in 2010 and continue to deliver the best and most innovative collaboration products for businesses.
