3 Great Light Blogging Tools Compared

The company made the decision to offer a free product realizing the demand for a platform more formal than Twitter and less formal than WordPress or Typepad’s original product. ReadWriteWeb compared TypePad’s Micro against 2 other leading light blogging tools. Below are our thoughts: TypePad Micro: In addition to being able to blog via email, iPhone app, “Blog It” bookmarklet and the general WYSIWYG dashboard, this tool also allows users to cross post to Twitter, Friendfeed and Facebook. My only complaint with TypePad is that there are only 2 design themes to choose from. For someone like me with very little design sense, it’s a long process to find something right. As well, if you’d like to add another blog or add new design themes you are required to pay for a monthly subscription service. Tumblr: This service offers users publishing via iPhone app, desktop widget, the Tumblr bookmarklet, text message, email, AIM and even via audio call-in. Tumblr’s theme gallery offers hundreds of options for design. Users can also add their posts to Facebook and Twitter via the free customization. Tumblr allows users to create more than one blog and add more than one contributor for free; however, all edits show up in the same dashboard in chronological order. This means you may have to dig to revise an older post. Posterous: Posterous is the original email publishing microblog. Users can email posts, publish them via the web editor or upload them from the PicPosterous iPhone app. The service allows users to set up auto posting to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa, YouTube, Vimeo, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress and Xanga. You can also choose to post to just one service in addition to your Posterous account by emailing [email protected] to specify Flickr or [email protected] to post to Twitter. Of the three services, Posterous offers an advantage in its ease-of-use and while it’s lacked design abilities in the past, the company recently launched themes and theme import from Tumblr. Other notable light blogging services include Soup.io, Vox and Noovo. If we’ve missed your favorite service let us know in the comments below. dana oshiro 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Emotional Sharath keeps his promise to coach

first_imgOlympian Achanta Sharath Kamal came back strongly after a shocking 3-4 singles semi-final loss and the lanky Indian says it was a promise that inspired him to shrugg off the disappointment to claim the men’s doubles table tennis gold for the country in the Commonwealth Games, here today.”Basically, it was a promise I wanted to keep. The promise was between me and team coach Bhawani Mukherjee that we would play the national anthem at the hall today. I am so happy to keep my words,” an emotional Sharath said at the post match press conference.The world number 40 went down fighting to Singaporean Yang Zi in the final-four stage of men’s singles, but then recovered from the shock fast and paired up with former national champion Subhajit Saha to claim the doubles gold, beating Yang and Gao Ning 3-2 in a keenly contested summit clash.”My wife also inspired me before the doubles match. She came and called me ‘champion’ and that boosted my confidence all over again,” said Sharath, who broke down crying on the podium when the hosts’ national anthem was played at the hall.”My chest swelled with pride when the national anthem was being played. The country has given us so much support — the people, coaches, family, federation and the officials. I am happy to give them the honour in return,” said Sharath, who along with Saha, clad in the Tricolour, posed for photograph at the end of the match.”Generally, I am not an emotional person. But today, after listening to the national anthem, I could not hold myself,” he added.advertisementSharath also praised Saha for his support on the run-up to as well as during the summit-clash.”He also supported me very well, he is playing amazingly well after coming from an injury lay-off. Today we had to prove ourselves in the final,” he said.Saha also admitted that they were under some pressure during the final, specially before a packed stand at Yamuna Sports Complex.”We were under pressure. But then, my partner showed the strength and we never spoke about the singles loss,” he said.”Now our target is to do better in Asian Games in China next month. It would be another tough competition there,” Saha added.SAI chief coach for table tennis, Mukherjee said, “We wanted at least one gold and I am happy that they have kept their promise.”India’s foreign coach, Massimo Constantini was quite happy with the overall performance of the Indians.”I have been saying that we can expect anything between three and five medals in the Commonwealth Games. Now we have got four medals and even the fifth can come tomorrow,” the Italian said.”In the Delhi Games, our performance is only second to Singapore. So I think, we should take that,” the coach said.last_img read more

Game movie review- Find the latest Game film review on India Today

first_imgFilm: GameCast: Abhishek Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Kangana Ranaut, Shahana Goswami, Boman Irani, Sarah Jane Dias, Jimmy ShergillProducer: Excel EntertainmentRating: I’m sure in Abhinay Deo’s head, Game must have seemed like Ocean’s Eleven. Stylish suits, paper sharp cheekbones, girls with smoky eyes, and lots of overcoats. The mysterious city of Istanbul with its intriguing mosques and its decadent nightlife. A stopover in a mythical island off the coast of Greece. Some amount of seedy Bangkok, seamy Mumbai and classic London, which allows Kangna Ranaut to test her English once again on us (she tries, but sorry, a British investigating officer she ain’t). Think of Ocean’s Eleven meets Abbas Mustan and you have the genre of Game. A movie with a B-grade plot of twists and turns dreamed up by a particularly frenetic scriptwriter (Althea Kaushal) and an A-grade budget. Which is why one is not surprised when one reads the titles. It’s a movie co produced by Eros Pictures and Excel Entertainment and never the twain can meet–one is the maker of Golmaal and the other is the maker of Dil Chahta Hai.The result: a horrible hyrbid. The story, such as the elaborate plot is, has one cussed old Agatha Christie type of patriarch who calls four people to his island for a grand denouement. He’s Anupam Kher, a billionaire called Kabir Malhotra, and the four unfortunate individuals are Abhishek Bachchan, pout in place, playing a nightclub owner and drug runner; Shahana Goswami, a drunken journalist who looks as louche as she sounds; Boman Irani overacting madly, playing an Indian politician running for prime minister in Thailand; and Jimmy Shergill, playing an actor Vikram Kapoor who ran down a young girl in a drunken driving accident. Everyone has a dark secret which connects them to each other. Sigh. Yes, it’s that sort of a story.advertisementThe upshot is that someone gets shot, allowing Sia Agnihotri, that’s Kangna trying to do an Angelina Jolie, to carry a gun, a strange accent (the result of an accent coach we are told) and lots of grey power suits. She will nail the victim, but not before Bachchan gets to play contact sports with all manner of goons across continents. He punches, kicks, whacks and lunges at various hapless crooks, pummeling his way through. That’s when he’s not jogging through the streets of Istanbul.It’s not enough. Sarah Jane Dias tries hard to inject some oomph, with blood red lipstick and dark eyes. But it’s all quite pointless–which is fine. Thrillers are not meant to have much of a point except to thrill, but the murderer is so obvious that the repeated red herrings only serve to irritate. By the time Bachchan really gets going, making insider jokes about Chelsea, appreciating a fine wine and reading Murakami, toio much money has flown down the Bosphorus.There is some good news though. Bachchan is looking in character, fitter than he’s been, and more romantic than he’s been allowed to be.They could, however, have saved a bit on his costumes and given Anupam Kher a better beard.last_img read more

Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“In the past, I was very worried about what I couldn’t control, but one thing I’ve learned is that even if you work hard, there are some things you can’t control. Therefore, you have to be calm because sooner or later an opportunity will come.“Not playing that many games was tough for me, but it forces you to grow up. I didn’t expect to play. It was a difficult match, away from home.“However, I had the opportunity and I knew I had to give everything to gain continuity. Spalletti tries to help everyone with their mental state.“Maybe you’re not feeling good mentally and people don’t understand why. Spalletti’s a very emotional person in games.last_img read more
