Optimize your CS-Cart store

Faster websites get better SEO scores and get better indexes in search engines, a Google employee once said "Website should be fast", your visitors will agree, trust me. Faster and optimized eCommerce websites do sell more than 40% more than slower ones, just because they are faster. You "will" agree once you see the money come ;) trust me.

Apple iPad Review

By |2020-05-08T11:43:38+01:00January 27th, 2010|Mobile, Reviews, Technology|

After all those rumors on iSlate, iTab, etc, at last the Apple’s tablet official information came out. iPad is the real name! After a tour on Apple’s website, comes few points:

 

iPad Advantages?

iPad seems to be the next best thing after iPhone, but compared to iPhone,

 

  • it’s got a bigger screen,
  • great touch-screen technology,
  • faster processor,
  • more storage space,
  • ambient light sensor,
  • and few little details…
  • Cool design,
  • iPad Applications
  • Classy,

But as far as it goes with the details on Apple, there aren’t many advantages to iPad.

 

iPad, a laptop or a HUGE iPhone?

iPad is definitely not a laptop and neither a netbook, it’s 9.7 inches big screen, it gets close to 10 inches netbooks but the fact that it […]

Windows 7 not booting?

By |2009-10-20T01:48:18+01:00October 20th, 2009|Technology|

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest Microsoft’s operating system. It’s something made out of Windows XP and Windows Vista. I found it a stable system and the visual effects are pretty cool. Something I do not really appreciate is the User Account Control which pops up everytime you make a system related operation. I disabled the UAC at the first startup.


Windows 7 was released first to computer manufacturers and leaked on the internet. Today, a retail version is available to everyone.


There are a lot of articles on the internet written about the features of Windows 7, its advantages and disadvantages. Lots of webhsites provide information on how to download and/or activate Windows 7. I would strongly recommend you buy a genuine version of Microsoft […]

Use your mobile phone as a wireless webcam

By |2009-04-28T14:24:50+01:00April 28th, 2009|Mobile, Reviews, Technology|

Yes! It’s very possible to have a wireless webcam if you have a mobile phone with a camera and a bluetooth connection.


Having a bulky USB webcam with that annoying USB cable when you are on the go, with your laptop, is not always the best thing to happen to you. That’s when a wireless webcam comes in handy. wireless webcam


Talking about wireless webcams, if you’ve ever thought of it, and searched about, you know that they cost a minimum of 100 USD, and are most of the time bulky, need power supply, and are relying on a network.

Posts and comments in “any” language in WordPress!

By |2009-04-13T02:52:50+01:00April 13th, 2009|Technology, Web Development, Wordpress|

Have you ever thought of writing your blog posts in a language other than English? or even let your visitors leave comments in another language!?


Well, some may answer with “Yes! in French!” (or Portuguese, or Italian…), but, what I mean is in other languages like Arabic, Farsi (Persian), Urdu, Chinese…, languages which have characters other than the basic “A,B,C…”

Basically, when you write a blog post on your blog, it is stored in a database, and what characters that database supports, defines the characters you can use for writting your post.


Well discuss about the two general types of WordPress, the WordPress.com blogs and self-hosted WordPress installations.


WordPress.com blogs:


Typing other languages such as Farsi or Russian or Arabic should be supported by default and […]

MyBlogLog Widget is SLOW!

By |2008-12-10T18:24:30+01:00December 10th, 2008|Web Development, Wordpress|

I’ve been using MyBlogLog widget from Yahoo, from the beginning, and I was really happy with it at first. I used to find out who visited my site and if they’ve had a blog or website, it helped me to find and visit it easily.
Now that Gibni is expanding and I get more and more visitors per day, I am worried about the speed and loading times, so I am trying to make pages load faster and faster.
I’ve been using caching techniques, CSS sprites and other optimization techniques some developed by myself and some mostly inspired from AskApache ; and managed to get the best possible loading speed.
Today, I feel it’s going to be the last day for MyBlogLog widget on Gibni. And within the next 12 hours, […]
