What is RSS ?

Posted by Mezo | Friday, December 12, 2008



What are RSS Feeds?

We all surf the internet and find alot of good web sites and pages that we want to remember/save their links. We like to know the recent news on some topic(s). We love to be updated.

So, some of us memorize the addresses of their favourite websites, some bookmark them in their favourite/bookmarks list, others use social bookmarking sites.

I'm sure you've seen the the icon to the lef and the word RSS alot in new websites. RSS stands for (Really Simple Syndication) which means you don't have to check your favourite websites for updates, you don't need to go to your favourite news website everytime you are looking for updates, this can be hard specially if you have a long list of these sites.


RSS brings updates from all your favourite websites down to you! at your service. Every update or change in these websites will be shown to you in a (Reader) like Google Reader.

When you subscribe to these sites' feeds, they will "feed" your reader with new updates. So a reader is a place to find all the updates of your favourite websites.

If you have a blog /website you can incorporate any RSS Feed you want in your blog using a RSS to Blog Widget. So your visitors will see any new update coming from the feed you have put on your site, but make sure the feed is relevant to your blog content.

This video will show your What RSS is in a very, very simple way :





What is a Web Browser?

Posted by Mezo | Saturday, December 06, 2008

Simply, a web browser is the program you are using right now to read this website! It's a software that can access the World Wide Web(WWW).

Websites are built using some programming languages and techniques like HTML, CSS, RSS, etc. A web browser must understand HTML (HyperText Markup Language) protocol and to produce the output page for you.

A web browser allows you to read text, images, videos and other graphical plugins. But why do some websites appear different when I use a different browser? Simply because each browser has it's way in formatting web pages and producing them, some websites are viewed better with a certain browser. Have you ever seen "This site is best viewed using IE7 " ? yes, that's what I mean :)

Some of the Web browsers currently available for personal computers include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Netscape, Opera, Avant Browser, Konqueror, Google Chrome, Flock, Arachne, Epiphany, K-Meleon and AOL Explorer.

My new cellular phone is Sony ericsson w910i, these phones are a little different from Nokia phones so i'll be giving you some tips about how to start using the phone :

-To add a space between words u will use the (#) button instead of zero in Nokia phones.

-To switch to silent mood press the (#) buton for a few seconds.

-The bluetooth headset is usefull as the speakers are a little lower in sound. There's no proved method to increase the sound/voice in this phone, so if you increased the sound to the maximum and you still not satisfied, the bluetooth headset is your solution.

-The Sense me function is used in games, u just move your phone don't use the keys (up, down, right left)! but u can change the options.

-To mark several items in a list (messagesm for example) just choose options then Mark several.

-Use the key on the upper right side to increase or decrease the volume. If you are receiving a call you can make the phone silent by pushing this button once, pushing it twice will send a busy tone to the caller.

-Horizontal or vertical! u can view images and play music as u want just hold your phone horizontally or vertically and the picture will change it's direction to fit the new position.

-To change the writing language just press the (#) button for a few seconds (while writing a text message).

-To charge the bluetooth handsfree, use the phone charger, notice the small metal pins on the side plugged into the phone, one of them is a little longer, plug the headset in it. Like in this pic :




-Shake control : press on the Walkman® key, then flick your wrist. A vibration lets you know that the track has been changed - a new song from your current playlist is selected randomly then played automatically. Shake your wrist to the other side to go back to another song.


How to install themes for Sony Ericsson w910i:
After downloading the theme, unzip/unpack the files. Connect ur phone to the PC and copy the files into the themes folder.Then go to the main menu in the phone (after disconnecting it) , choose Settings > Display > Themes and choose ur theme. :)


-Get yourself some beautiful themes for your phone from these sites :
