Get your @Live addresses while they lost

In General, HowTo, Microsoft, Misc, Tips N Tricks, Web 2.0 on July 19, 2007 at 7:04 pm

Windows Live Hotmail

To me @Live addresses are cool even though I like Gmail interface and email handling a lot better than Hotmail. It is short and sweet and stands out. When Microsoft announced that it will open up the @Live addresses I was excited. But then the news faded and there was no word for a while. In the mean time our unofficial hackers came up with a hack that will let us get @Live addresses (unofficially) by changing few parameters in the browser URL.

Here is how you do it,

  1. Visit the Windows Live Hotmail subscription page
  2. Click the “Get it free” button 
  3. When the new page comes up, in the address bar, replace “hmnewuser.aspx” with “newuser.aspx”
  4. Locate and delete “&hm=1” from the same address bar
  5. Hit enter, and when the page reloads it will let you create @live addresses

Enjoy!!! And make sure to get your @live addresses as soon as you can as this hack might not work forever.

Mapplets: Google Map Gadgets

In Breaking News, General, Google, Misc, News, Technical, Tips N Tricks, Tools, Web 2.0 on July 11, 2007 at 1:08 pm

Google just released a new feature to its Google Maps called Mapplets. Mapplets are simple/small gadgets that can be embedded into the Google Maps. Mapplets can be found under “My Maps” if you are signed-in to Google network. There are bunch of Mapplets that Google has put out to begin with including, Real Estate Search, Photos, Gas Prices, Distance Measurement Tool, Earth as Art, and Crop Circles. But when you click the “Add Content” button you get a much bigger list of all the available Mapplets and I’m sure if you don’t find the one you are looking for it would be available soon.

To check out Google Mapplets you would, obviously, have to visit Google Maps.
