Chitika eMiniMalls

You may have noticed the new "eMiniMalls" on the main page of guymal.com.

I'm trying it out and it seems pretty cool.

The eMiniMall displays information about a product, according to criterions that I've determined (so a gardening site for example will show gardening products), and shows you best deals to get that product if you're interested.

If you click on one of the deals then, of course, I get a few pennies, very similar to the AdSense ads that you see all over the web now (and on my site :).

Here's an example of what an eMiniMall looks like:

Nice ah?

So far the AdSense ads on this site have pretty much paid the bill for hosting it and I'm hoping that this new addition will increase that, while providing a useful service for you guys.

If you want to sign up for an eMiniMall for your own site then follow this link (hey this also helps pay the bills :) :

Let me know what you think of this...

One of the biggest problems with the iPod is that officially you can't get your songs off it (amazing ah?).

There are a few ways to get around this limitation but one of the easiest is iDump.

Forget this program's awful name (actually it's pretty cool :).

It allows you to easily transfer your songs off your iPod to a PC.

All you do is connect your iPod and run iDump and you'll have access to all your songs and even your playlists.

Just select the songs you want to transfer (you can even use your playlists to select songs) then pick a destination directory and how you would like your songs to be named. And then sit back and transfer all the selected songs to the PC.

Dump away...

Britney's Guide

Ok, you can admit that you don't know much about semiconductor physics, right?

Now, thanks to everyone's favorite pop idol, you can stop being ashamed that you're semiconductor illiterate and become an expert in semiconductor physics!

That's right, Britney's Guide to Semiconductor Physics will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about semiconductor physics and were afraid to ask.

It is a little known fact, that Britney is an expert in semiconductor physics and now she's sharing her knowledge with the world.

Thank you Britney!

Scamming the Scammers

You know those Nigerian scam emails?

This guy got one asking him for $2000 in order to open an offshore account and get access to a fortune of 30 million dollars. He decided to reply and drive the sender nuts.

For 9 months he kept going back and forth, telling the Nigerians that he wants to help them, send them money, have them come live with him in his Florida estate... He even tried to scam some money out of the Nigerian (and almost succeeded!).

You can read the entire email correspondence (including a few voice mail messages) on the site. Although it may be a bit long, it is totally hilarious.

Eventually he created a two person "multi-media" comedy show about the correspondence that is apparently quite successful.

Xbox 360 vs. Sega Dreamcast

This article shows 23 eerie parallels between the Xbox 360 and the Sega Dreamcast.

(in short bullet points so it's not hard to read :)

It also continues to explain (again in bullet points) why the Xbox 360 will succeed while the Dreamcast failed.
