iPhone users can now remove data plan if they don't need it.

Disappearing Gmail messages baffle users

When Jeneane Sessum logged into her Gmail account on the afternoon of Oct. 27, she was greeted with a horrifying sight: an empty inbox.

A Gmail user since 2004, Sessum, a social media consultant and writer in Atlanta, had thousands of messages there, enough to use up almost 30 percent of her allotted storage space.

Because Gmail is her primary work and personal e-mail service, Sessum lost many important messages, including some she needed at that moment for a project.

Google at Gas Station

Lost drivers in U.S. soon will be able to find Google Map in Gas station across the country beginning early next month.

Motorists will be able to scroll through several categories to find local landmarks, hotels, restaurants and hospitals selected by the gas station's owner. After the driver selects a destination, the pump will print out directions.

Looking for Web Hosting?

I just finished moving one of my website to another web hosting company. That took me about 3-4 weeks just to look for which web hosting company I should go with. REASON : One of my website started to have a lot of data. 1and1 allows user to have no more than 100 MB of each database and it's not enough for me. I have to look for somewhere else to move my website there. Empty Cache and Search Index were what I did to keep the database below 100 MB while I was looking for a new hosting service. WEBHOSTING : I've checked with many companies listed below:

eBay buyer - BEWARE

Category:

I just read the news about another fraud on eBay from this website -> Bangkok Post - 8 arrested for eBay fraud in Hong Kong

Basically, it's about the buyer that paid for the products that were never delivered. So, Hongkong polices tracked them down and arrested 8 of them.

I know there are a lot of fraud going on with online transactions. So, before decide to purchase, at least, check their resellers rating or anything that you suspect to avoid this problem.
