Schwarzenegger Portman Hogan "Japanese Ad" Cool!

With Internet these days, what else can one celebrity hide? I think Internet is more a disaster to the celeb community than being a good stuff. Now all the things they do in public, a common person can just publish these acts automatically in Youtube. Their commercial/advertising campaigns where they thought would never be shown in their homeland are accessible also in Youtube. On the contrary,most of them actually real good publicity through theInternet if they are smart enough to take that path. It's just a matter of choice: are they using technology at their advantage or are they making it an enemy? Smarter omes got the better choice! Below are some of the TV commercials/advertisements by hollywood celebs done in Japan. I can say that Japanese arealways unique. See these! 


And here is the rest of it.

Design Your Blog to Suit Your Personality and/or Theme

I was so thankful, and I still am, when the Blogger Template Designer came and it was so dynamic! I love playing with this blog's look (and also my other blogs) and a lot of things. Blogger Template Designer made my life easier in adjusting my blog to what Ilike and what I find cool at a certain period, when I have to edit/redesign it. Below is the tip from blogger, a bit of tutorial and instructions on how to customize Bloggers blogs.
Blogger Template Designer is a new way for us bloggers to easily customize the look of our respective blogs. We can now select a variety of templates, images, colors, and column layouts to make our blogs an expression of us or of our niche/theme. To get to the Template Designer, go to Design | Template Designer.
To access the Template Designer in the upgraded interface, just click on the drop-down menu of the gray Post List icon, and select Template. From there, you'll be able to choose and customize your template.As you play around with the Template Designer, you’ll see a preview of how the blog will appear based on the choices you’ve made, which you can expand to by pressing the toggle to Expand Preview between the Blogger Template Designer dashboard and the preview. When you’re satisfied with the look of your blog, you can make them go live by pressing Apply to Blog in the top right hand corner of the Template Designer..

To get started with Blogger Template Designer, select a template for your blog from one of the professionally designed templates that are available. Each template appears as a large thumbnail that when clicked will show different variations on the template below that you can select by clicking on them. Note that clicking a new template will erase any customizations you’ve made on a previous template. Once you’ve chosen a template, you can continue customizing the look of your blog.
 
 
No matter what template you are previewing in Template Designer, you can always see what is currently live on your blog by looking at the Live on Blog thumbnail in the Template Designer control panel. You can also click on it to reset the template in the Template Designer to the live version of your blog. 
Background
Even though you’ve chosen a template, you can still change the way that it looks. Using Blogger Template Designer, you can choose the background color or image for your blog and then play with the color scheme. To start customizing your background, click on the thumbnail under Background Image.
One of the best new features of Template Designer is the ability to change the color of your background image. This is possible when a background image has transparency. You can tell that a background image is transparent because it has a checkerboard in the top right hand corner of the image.
Once you’ve selected your image, you can change the color of the background by clicking on Main Color Theme and then selecting the color of your choice.
 
You can only change the color of your background if the background is transparent. Also, if the template that you chose has a grey background, you cannot change its color.
In addition to selecting and personalizing your blog’s background image, you can also choose a color theme to apply to aspects of your blog, including text and links. You can do this by playing with the Main Color Theme or by choosing one of our Suggested Themes. Changing the color theme of your blog will change the colors for all aspects of the blog template that can be changed.
Note: If background image is not transparent, themes will alter the text color scheme of the blog
Note: For information on uploading your own custom background image, please see our article on Adding custom CSS to your blog.
Layout
You can choose a variety of layout options for your blog, from one to three columns. These layouts feature drag and drop functionality for gadgets. You will also have a variety of layout options for the blog footer as well.
 
If you want to add or remove gadgets or edit gadget settings, you cannot do this through Blogger Template Designer. Rather, you have to do this on the general Layout tab. 
Adjust Width
You can change the width of the blog, and the right and left columns by dragging the slider for the different parts of blog layout. Note that the options you see here correspond to the type of layout that you chose. If, for example, you chose a blog with left and right columns, you will see both left and right column sliders. If, however, you chose a blog with only a left column, you will only see that option here.

Organic Visits Thanks Google and Other Search Engines

Despite long absences and not-so-often-blog updates, I am glad of this blog's traffic ranking. From time to time, there are some five posts that maintain this blog's traffic strength that I am very glad about. Whether I promote the traffic or not, there are always people visiting here, fresh people, who happen to search the post from Google or any other search engines! For this I am thankful to Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines for that!.

I may not have so many posts monthly, or I may not promote this blog and it's traffic, I am so glad Google search engine and others have indexed this blog to appear in searches, and indeed, the click rate is more than what I can be thankful for.

This is my stat bar from Alexa, from the right, I can really see what people search and they arrive in my blog!
I also found out that my blog's older views are all cached and I can go back on certain dates and see how my blog looked like! Just like the image below, this was like 3 years ago! Time flies!

Steve Jobs's Death: Do You Think the World Lost a Genius?

With the death of Steve Jobs, do you think the world lost a genius? I cannot say as theonly Apple I ever own was the iPod Shuffle that was in 2003 if I remember good. After that, nothing. I know there are so many Apple loyalist as they say it's of highest quality and very fast. We discussed in my Italian course last week and all are in favor of Apple products but everyone also admits its non-so-affordability!


What do you think about Apple products? It's expensive but it's cool?
