Twitter's New Layout

ads here too


Have you used the new design of Twitter?  Well if you haven't, try using it and experience for yourself.  For me I find it easy to use and it is much more accessibility unlike the design before.  In other word the whole look of the website is simplified in terms of timeline, search for feeds, replies to tweets, and one of the best that I like is the details where you see your post individually.  Before, you will just have to click the time of the post in the timeline just to see your post individually, now it is much better and it can easily be checked.

If you're a twitter user's that has not seen or experience the new look better get on to the site and get yourself twittering.   And if you use it now what do you think about it?

Kidsocial for Kids Only!

ads here too


It seems that kids are getting very much expose to social networking sites and other online activities. Aside from the number of kids being exposed online, the ages are also getting younger and younger. We, parents, are not always around with our kids and we're not always their to watch over all their activities online.

Since I'm a Dad and I'm concerned with what my kids surf and visit online I want to at least give my kids security on what social networking site they will indulge in. I think last year I have posted a web browser that is exclusively for kids without the parents worrying that they might land on an unwanted sites. I happen to have used it and it was great because my son only get into sites that are really for kids.

Now there is a brand new social networking site that is for Kids only. It is called KIDSOCIAL! On this site kids can listen to music, chat, play games and share photos to their online friends monitored by their parents. A very neat and kid-safe online environment for kids. Another great about this is that it is totally strangers-proof because pages and sharing activities will not commence without the approval of the parents.

Kidsocial allows the kids to interact in a safe online playground made up of familiar games and brands that developers know our kids already love. Kidsocial uses family friendly filters to present appropriate YouTube videos and also offers programming from Hulu and Grooveshark. Kids can create avatars and challenge each other in games or just hang out and chat.

Here's a letter from KIDSOCIAL team to the parents as assurance...

Dear Parents,

At KidSocial™ we realize kids of all ages want to interact and socialize with friends online. Although all KidSocial™ is built for fans of all ages, kids under 13 years of age can also participate. The site has special precautions to ensure you the parent can approve friendships and monitor content being posted by your child and their friends.

Parents of Children over 13 years of age:

Like most other social and virtual worlds, children over 13 are not required to include their Parent in the registration process. However, as an added security feature, we have placed this option into the registration process for those who would like to monitor their children who are over 13 years of age. Simply sign them up and include yourself as the parent. This will allow you to stay involved and monitor your child's friendships, content and game play.

Parents of children under 13 years of age:

KidSocial™ limits the features available to those children who sign up without parental consent. For example, those children cannot open chat with their friends, view each-others pages, nor enter any content. However, should they so choose, a parent may agree to upgrade their child's account. In this case they allow us to turn on these functions, store additional information about their child and verify the parent's identity through a credit card transaction. It is important to note that KidSocial™ is 'closed socially'. This means that no user can search for, find, view nor connect with another user including your child. Friendships are made only through real-life connections and recommendations (we call them real-world friends') and encrypted friendship codes optionally monitored by the parents.

Why use KidSocial™?

KidSocial™ is a great social web site for your child to connect with their 'real-world' friends and relatives, as well as those in their school, neighborhood, center of faith, or athletic communities. Friends using parent-monitored invitations and encrypted friendship codes to enable communication are just a few ways you can ensure reliable social connections for your child.

Our Full Version for kids under 13 is a great social tool for your child because:
-It allows kids to share and chat with their approved 'real-world' friends' only
-It allows kids to view pages and content of their 'real-world' friends
-You can monitor and delete all friendship requests and content
And remember, Kidsocial™ is safer because:
-No one can search for, find or try to chat with your child
-There is never any public posting of your child's page on Kidsocial
-Advanced technology monitors, blocks and identifies poor language, content and users 24/7

Thank you for using KidSocial™. Our goal is to bring kids and family together in a safe and fun way. We hope it helps your family develop deeper relationships with the people in your life who matter most.

If you have any questions, Email Support.

Thank you.

-The KidSocial™ Team


I this will be a great social networking site for kids!

Clip It on Clipix!

ads here too


clipix

With lots of things to remember and with lots of events happening getting to remember certain details gives pain to my head.  Though brains are the ones who created the machines still, the mental processing and storing is very difficult.  Like in one of the seminars I have attended stated that a quarter of the entire seminar will well remember while the rest will be getting a hard time on recalling it. 

So we, the working brains, do need an extra help to boost up the quality of work and the efficiency in life’s events and good to know that there are geeky stuff online that does the remembering real nice.  In which they provide it much more visual.  Pictures are much effective objects to remember. 

Clipix.com is the site to see!  clipix let you clip important things and not so important details for you to remember, whether it is a simple shoe design to extravagant dinner date in an expensive restaurant.   Since I hardly know clipix.com, I am just taking the details one at a time but I already some plans on what I will post in it.

My clipix clip

So far I have tried posting some pictures and stuff on it and it was fun because you get to clip it there if you want to remember a certain site that you have just visited.  Not only that it will record the site but also record a certain image that you want for easy recognition.  Like I said it’s much better in visual.

Entirely, right now I have posted pictures and images of toys that my kids would love to have and some that they already have.  Another board is about some gadgets and techie stuff.  Other clipboards are still empty but when the right time comes perhaps it will be more than I would expect. 

Well if you’re badly a forgetful person then perhaps you should try clipix.com and make it as your default site so you’ll get a head start on recalling events and activities.  Or if you’re always on the go, and iPhone App is sure enough to let you informed of your postings. 

Users can also personalize their clipboards but creating new clipboards that they wanted to.  It is more of an online organizer where you pack the same item into one packaging for easy reference.  So mainly, for me it is a great online organizer.  More hint, you can create your own bucketlist here!  How about you?  What would you post on clipix.com?

Resident Evil 6 Coming Soon

ads here too


Since I started working playing video games was reduced and now that I have a family with two kids I think I'll reconsider playing more online, PC and video games again but of course I need to have a stable game console first to run some of the best games.

I first came to know this video game in an video game arcade together with some of games that I usually play.   Then they developed more and more advance.  Later on they made a film with it as Milla Jovovich as the sexy monster terminator Alice.

Now Capcom confirms that the latest instalment of the Resident Evil franchise for home consoles will be released this coming November.  According to their press release, Capcom is very proud to announce that Resident Evil 6 is in full development and is scheduled for released on Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system on November 20, 2012 with a PC version to follow.

Here's the official trailer of Resident Evil 6.






Here's about the story of the Resident Evil 6 according to businesswire.com...

Resident Evil 6 portrays a world where an escalation in bioterrorist attacks across the globe has led to widespread fear among the population. In an attempt to quell the panic and curb the bioterrorist activity the President of the United States has decided to speak to the nation but not before the very location of the address itself comes under attack. With the President’s safety compromised the situation for the rest of the world seems hopeless.


In a first for the franchise, Resident Evil 6 sees series favourites Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield come together to face this unprecedented threat. They will be joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement in this relentless dramatic horror experience enacted on a global scale.


Since the landmark release of Resident Evil in 1996, the franchise has firmly established itself as a truly worldwide entertainment brand and mainstay of contemporary culture with a series of live action movies, CG anime, manga, novels and numerous merchandising lines. To date the Resident Evil series of videogames has achieved global sales of over 47 million units, while the live action movies starring Milla Jovovich have grossed in excess of $525 million dollars at the box office.


For those hardcore gamer I'm pretty sure they are already expecting about this.  I'm not yet sure if there beta testers already playing this game.
