Here is a free Google Adword worth RM100. I believe it is only for new users only and it is said that only the first 100 people to sign up will receive this special offer. The weird thing is that I saw this ads being on Adsense. You will need to sign up with a credit card, usually there is some charges to register with Malaysia Credit Card, it is RM20 if I remember it correctly. It is fine as long as you remember to stop your campaign once your fund is depleted.

This is quite irritating, as youtube advertisements are actually playing before and after the video you would like to play. This new YouTube ads have no skip buttong, you will have to watch the whole 30 seconds ads.
But this would be a new channel for Internet markerter to buy some advertisements slots, and this would be limited to those who could make video advertisements.
Ride the latest Google launch, the Google Wave. I have actually gotten this last night, a little slow on the wave as I was busy and not really keeping up with stuff.
Google wave is a communication tools, and I am yet to find out about its functionality. From what I could see and try, you can share files, have conversation, do a playback on all the waves so you can basically ride the wave, sharing video and other web gadgets.
I have some Google wave invites and if you wish to try them out, leave me a comment here with your valid email and I will send you the invite when I had the time.
It is never too late to ride the wave.
It seems that google have changed their frontpage design into a cleaner design. I kind of like the look as it does not seems to be cluttered with information. They are mainly promoting their content ads, mobile ads, search ads, and feed ads.
Mobile Adsense is something new and I don’t think they are available in Malaysia yet. Can’t wait to explore this alternative.
I would never though that Google will be affected, especially for this round of recession, but it is a fact now. Only yesterday Google announce that it will stop development of Jaiku and leave it to the hands of other developers as the code become available on Google Code under apache license. Jaiku was bought by Google more than one year ago but there was no development at all while all registration to Jaiku is invite only. Jaiku is a great microblogging platform but was never developed and promoted well enough to capture the market that it should gets.
Even sadder for Dodgeball users because Google will shut down the service permanantly. It is a a mobile social networking service that lets you share your location with friends via text message. It is only available in United States, even that, it has not conquered all states.
Other service that will probably go down is Google Video and Google Search Catalog. And Google Notebook will also be left with no further development.
With so many people dependable on Google service for their daily life to working task, we are sure that popular services will not go away and will be supported by Google Adwords. Hopefully Google will learn from their lesson and not simply buy a company then stop it from developing.
