Once again i delve into the controversial topic of “Spamza”,this topic has been brought up quite a lot over the past weeks and has sparked some anger in some people who have been victims of spam. Which is basically thousands of useless e-mails and newsletters sent to your e-mail. The objective of spam is to clutter your inbox and confuse you.

Not that long ago, on one of our other posts, a spamza lover said that spamza had been started up again. Yes it had in fact been started up again but i can now tell all you readers that Spamza has indeed been shut down once again. If you have anything you would like us to post about Spamza then email us at either. geektechnathan@gmail.com or geektechscott@gmail.comand we will try and get back to you as soon as possible as to whether we can post it or not. Leave comments that can hopefully be answered by a Spamza lover.

Thanks for your continuous support on our blog. It means a lot. Thank You.

Awesome Hotel Technology by Scott Campbell

The first of the Pantin hotels, the Ellington, founded by David Pantin, is going to have some pretty awesome technology.

Guests at the Leeds hotel will be treated to an entertainment centre including a plasma screen, satellite television, DVD and CD player, iPod docking station and even speakers in the bathroom.The entertainment centre is capable of playing Xbox 360, Wii and PS3, all of which will be available to guests. There will also be complimentary Wi-Fi and plug-in laptop access in every room and three digital phones, one by the bedside, one on the desk and one in the bathroom.

The staff are going to be using VOIP phones over the hotel’s wireless network; at a saving of £20,000.

6 Steps until Google rules the Internet by Scott Campbell

They say that there are 6 degrees of separation between any 2 given people on the planet. If ruling the internet and Google were counted as people, then Google is definitely only 6 steps away from ruling the internet.

(After writing the first paragraph, it doesn’t actually sound as good as I thought it would. Nevermind.)

Well anyway, according to Crunch Base, the database of mostly all Web companies, these are Google’s acquisitions:

Omnisio, ZAO Begun, DoubleClick, Jaiku, Zingku, Image America,Postini, GrandCentral , PeakStream, FeedBurner, Zenter, Panoramio, GreenBorder, Marratech,Tonic Systems,Trendalyzer, Adscape, Endoxon, JotSpot, YouTube, Neven Vision, Reqwireless, 2Web Technologies, Orion, @Last Software, Upstartle,Measure Map, dMarc Broadcasting, allPAY, bruNET, Phatbits, Akwan Information Technologies, Skia, Android, Dodgeball,Urchin Software, Keyhole,Where2,ZipDash,Picasa, Baidu,Ignite Logic, Sprinks, Genius Labs, Kaltix, Applied Semantics, Neotonic Software,,Pyra Labs, Outride, Deja.

Which, if you ask me, is a lot. What surprises me so much is the fact that Google can still afford state of the art office facilities after acquiring all these companies. They must turn some huge profit though.
