eBay is one of the biggest buyers of keyword ads on Google's leading pay-per-click advertising system, AdWords, using them to promote its online auctions. It canceled all Google ads 10 days ago in protest over the Web search company's bid to woo eBay customers to a rival payment system.
Hani Durzy, a spokesman for San Jose, California-based eBay, said his company later Friday would begin advertising on Google, but at reduced levels than previously. EBay had been buying tens of millions of keyword ads on Google each year.
Usually, when we wish to do swapping of values, we usually use a temporary variable like below (C# syntax but can easily be converted to other programming languages). However, it is not that efficient especially if you have lots of swapping to do. // May use other datatypes like int
byte a, b;
a = 1;
b = 2;
// Do swapping now
temp = a;
a = b;
b = temp;
// Now a and b are swapped
A more efficient swapping of variable values (C# syntax but can easily be converted to other programming languages) is illustrated below.
byte a, b; // May use other datatypes like int
a = 1;
b = 2;
a ^= b;
b ^= a;
a ^= b;
// Now a and b are swapped

It has been some time since Google released public calendars for public holidays. On top of that, Google has released calendars for events, entertainment, sports, etc.
I have tried adding Singapore's Calendar for public holiday but many days are incorrect. For example, Vesak Day is shown on 2nd June 2007 but in fact, it should have been 31st May 2007. I have informed Google about this months ago but apparently, this problem is not attended.

Hope CASE will win the battle and the Competition Commission of Singapore will put pressure on NETS to withdraw the fee hike. However, I am 90% sure NETS will still carry on with the hike but it could be lower than what they planned for initially.
Who is at the losing end? The answer definitely is going to be the CONSUMERS!

What exactly is meant by Web-Based Instant Messenging (IM)? Instant Messaging (IM) is a form of electronic communication which involves almost real-time communication between two or more users who are all online at the same time. So when we say Web-Based, we mean to say users need not download and install applications on their PCs in order to use the IM services.
I believe they have left out Google Talk unintentionally. We can also run Google Talk as a web-based IM without having to download and install on your PC. We can launch Google Talk either from GMail or from Google Talk official site. I must admit their list is very exhaustive. Out of the many web-based IMs from the list, I have only used MSN Web Messenger, Meebo, eBuddy, and Google Talk.

Ever since my colleague left, I am getting so bored in my current attached workplace. Sometimes, I end up being alone in lab. Sometimes, I end up having lunch by myself. People in my attached workplace always mingle around among themselves and attached staff like me are often being disregarded. It's getting really boring at work.
Not only this, I do feel attached staff are "deprived" of the many various benefits being enjoyed by those who are in their parent company. Applying to go for courses is so much difficult.
I am often not getting updates from my parent company and I am not aware of what's happening in my parent company. At times when I need to go back to my parent company to attend some roadshows, my attached company always find means to excuse me. So sad.
Google's new product, called Google Gears, allows their existing range of products to still work even if internet connection is absent. Services like e-mail, calendars, news readers, or even word processing or spreadsheets are going to be included. Google News Reader is the first to be included in Google Gears. Once word processor or spreadsheet are included, it could change how people currently work. Microsoft is threatened.
