Yup 1 and 1 hosting/domain service provider offers Private Registration With $5.99 Domains. 1&1's new plan is stilll priced at $5.99 for a one-year .com registration, but will now include private domain registration, a feature that is a paid add-on at other providers. The enhanced plans also include a 1 gigabyte e-mail account and a web starter page at no additional cost. Now how cool is this?
Yup you will not get those spam email and your private information remains safe. But it is not a limited-time promotion and bundled with standard domain package. :D
Yesterday I picked my copy of Reader's digest September 2005 issue. While just going through I noticed Google India advertising. The ad was about its adverting program â€“ AdWords. They are looking for sales/marketing/adverting/BPO persons i.e. most of the BPO and telemarketing jobs.
I started to think why they put ad in RD. May be main reason is RD's 643,000+ copies sold every month across India (remember it is English edition) and most of the readers are young university students and working professional. So it is better to put ad in such RD. In the past they used Times ascent too. This is the first time I saw an ad related to recruitment.

FreeBSD is hoping to move beyond the server and desktop market by tackling wireless devices :) This is good move. Since FreeBSD comes under a BSD style license it will improve its share and more manufacturer will use it.
See FreeBSD news and FreeBSD 6.0 to target wireless devices article.
According to new artical "Sun gets very serious about Solaris 10 on x86 and the Open Solaris project that it hopes will nourish it, Linux vendors such as Red HAT and Suse had better get very worried". Well first of all Sunâ€™s support on x86 sucks. It works better on Suns hardware but not on the normal x86 hardware. Second if they really wanna get somewhere they need to correct that path stuff and include GNU utilities and they have much more to do. Read full artcial online.
