Bebo Instant Messenger by TheTalkativeOne

Bebo (Blog Early Blog Often), the popular social networking site, has recently released Bebo Instant Messenger which enables on-line users the ability to talk to other users instantly. This messenger can also help users to be able to know if their friends are on-line or not easier than looking in the friends icon. The IM can be temperamental however. When you change to someone else’s profile it sometimes gets rid of your conversation with one of the users. Which can be particularly annoying for people who were in the middle of a conversation. Following on from popular IM programs such as MSN and AIM. Bebo wanted to integrate the both to make people’s computer life easier. This means that user’s don’t have to start up both programs during computing. The only problem is that some people you have on MSN but unfortunately don’t have on Bebo.

Haha, Thank You. 🙂

E-mail Tester : Day 3 by TheTalkativeOne

Hey, Sorry that i didn’t post yesterday i was really busy with downloading things for my computer and things.

So anyway as promised today i will be talking about Yahoo! the 2nd e-mail platform that i am testing.

Now i must say that the sign-up process is one of the hardest things i have ever encountered on the internet to do. The set-up takes forever and even after filling out each and everyone of the details ,which to be honest are slightly revealing of your identity whatever happened to data protection and all that, you are then asked to give a security code which i really don’t understand the point in. Even when you type in the code correctly it still says that you have got it wrong. This outraged me quite a bit and i entered it again just to find that the password i had put in had streched to about a mile long. Which i had to change about 20 times before Yahoo! finally set up my account. At this point it took me to a sign up screen from here on i had more problems. I put in the CORRECT details. My password and username and then it had the cheek to say that there was no email account of that name. By the time i had finally accessed the account i had created about 30 emails. When i got in i gave in and went back to my other “easier to set-up emails”.

Google is still on top guys. Thanks, Tomorrow will be Windows Live Mail. 🙂



Spamza…. Again by TheTalkativeOne

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.
