If you want to have a custom name, you need to either purchase the domain name through them during the registration process, or you will need to purchase a domain name through an independent domain name registrar such as GoDaddy. Once you have purchased the domain name, you need to alter the DNS settings so that they point to Blogspot servers (see instructions at for details).

October 28, 2010 – Clear 4G WiMax Wireless Internet Services – Clear 4G WiMax Wireless Internet Services is the direct link to the online shop at At this website, online shoppers can purchase CLEAR high-speed internet services and products.

Are you surfing the internet now? Do you know how you get your internet service?

Many years ago, when I first started using the internet, I used a dial-up modem. Today, dial-up internet access is already an old technology, though it is still around. If you search for “dial up internet” on Google, you will find that multiple companies are still providing dial-up internet access at very cheap prices and some of them are even free. For instance, Netzero, AOL, EarthLink, PeoplePC and MSN are several well-known companies providing Dial-up access. When people shop for dial-up access plans, they can choose from regular and accelerated high speed plans. Usually the latter is a little bit more expensive than the former. But the monthly rate is still below $25. For dial-up internet access, users need a landline telephone line and a modem built-in or hooked up to the computer. Even though its attractive absolute low price, fewer and fewer people are using the dial-up internet access due to its low speed.

With the communication technology developed in recent years, more cost-efficient and reliable high speed internet access options available such DSL and Cable. For instance, Verizon, AT&T and Covad are the top 3 fast internet DSL providers. Right now the regular DSL plan at Verizon is only $19.99 per month with a 2-year contract. Compared to DSL, Cable internet service is relatively pricy. But Cable internet access is welcomed by many people because of its high speed and reliability. If you only read text or view small size images, you may not notice the difference in speed between DSL and Cable. But if you watch videos or do online streaming, you may prefer to use Cable instead of DSL. But even within DSL services, multiple plans with different speed limits are available. The faster DSL services usually are more expensive and the price is very close to that of the Cable internet service.

With Wi-Fi and 3G technologies, on-the-go internet access is possible. More and more people use their mobile devices such as smart phones, iphones and ipod touch to access internet wirelessly so that they can check emails, tweet on twitter, chat with their friends on the web anywhere they want. But any technology has its own shortcomings, which is why new technologies come every day. When you use Wi-Fi or 3G network wireless internet access, in order to get better signals or connections, you need to be close to hotspots. And sometimes the speed is also a limitation. That is why Mobile 4G WiMax is introduced as a new technology to overcome the short coverage range problem.

4G WiMax provides super fast mobile internet with average speeds falling into the range of 3 to 6 Mbps which is 4 times faster than 3G. If you want to use your mobile devices to stream movies online or do video chat on the go, 4G WiMax may be a better choice.

The information about CLEAR 4G WiMax Wireless Internet services is available at The CLEAR 4G WiMax Wireless Internet services is brought to you by Clearwire Corporation, a publically traded company at NASDAQ under the symbol CLWR. For people who are interested in investing in Clearwire or a career in this company,, the official website of the company might be a good site to visit.

October 24, 2010 | Google Translate |Free Online Translation Tool is the web site address for Google Translate, a free online translation tool.

Who needs Google Translate?

Computer or internet users who want to translate articles from one language to another may find this tool very useful.

Why people need

Nowadays the Internet plays a more and more important role in people’s daily life. What makes the Internet so popular? The major reason is that it provides a platform for people to exchange information very efficiently. In this sense, the Internet makes the world smaller. On the Internet, people can share information not only with people living in their region or country, but also people from all over the world. For instance, on the Internet, people living in UK can read world news published on an American News portal web site, and people living in US can see a blog post published by someone living in Japan.

But in reality many people may face language barriers when browsing online. For instance, if you are a person who can only speak English, if you search for a Japanese sushi recipe on the web using an English spelling of a certain sushi name, you may get search results written in Japanese. You may be really interested in the sushi recipes written in Japanese. But you cannot benefit from the Internet in this instance you do not understand Japanese. Google Translate can help you overcome this language barrier. Just submit the article to the tool to get an English version.

I don’t know how many languages you can read or write in. Some people may be bi-lingual or tri-lingual, but many of us are only fluent in one language. Maybe there are some people who can speak multiple languages, but it is rare to find someone who can speak more than 3 languages. So there is always a chance that when you browse on the web, you will view a web page which has content written in a language that you cannot understand at all. Then, what will you do? How will you solve the foreign language problem? One way is to ask some other people for help. For instance, if you know the web page you want to read is written in Russian, you can ask your Russian friends to translate it for you. But sometimes you may not even recognize the language in which the web page is written. If that is case, Google translate also has a detect language function, so that you will at least know which language the article is written in, and who to turn to for a translator.

If you are unsure about the language in an article, or would like to translate an article in a foreign language, make sure to go to, the official site of Google Translate, the web’s most popular free online translation tool.
