Google has just launched MyMaps that allows us to create our own personalized maps with arrows, shapes and placemarks, reports The Wall Street Journal. What’s best is that it supports for rich media such as videos from YouTube and Google Video.
We are able to mark the maps we created as public or private. The tools that are available are very simple and easy to use. We can add lines, polygons and placemarks easily. Once a map is created it is very easy to share it and syndicate it via KML. Items found during a local search can be added to a map with a click. Places found via GeoRSS or KML files can also be added to a map.
Check out MyMaps today, with this tool, you will less likely to get lost again I suppose.

I know you are like myself, who love Google so much that everyday we have to visit Google numerous times; either to search for websites/information, use their fantastic gmail email service, or to check how much we have earned in adsense. To you and me, seems like this mega popular website which millions of people are using every second is always up and running – no downtime. But, do you know in 2007, Google was down for a total 7 minutes?!
I didn’t say that, Pingdom did in a report released recently. In the report, Pingdom lists the top 20 websites ranked by Alexa and their total downtime in 2007. Pingdom is a company who provides uptime and response time monitoring for sites and services on the web.
Not too long ago, YouTube held an online videos awards called “YouTube Video Awards”. The main purpose is to honor the best-user generated videos of 2006 across seven categories which are Most Inspirational, Most Creative, Best Series, Best Comedy, Musician of the Year, Best Commentary and Most Adorable Video Ever.
Youtube users were given one week to vote, and now the winners have been announced. I was quite surprised with some of the winners, but apparently those are what the YouTube community selected.
You have just accidentally deleted your 3 years worth of xxx pictures collection. You sweat, a and desperately wanting to recover the files! How can you undelete them?
No worries. On default Windows configuration, Windows does not delete the files at all when you press the delete button. It simply moved the files to the Recycle Bin! So, to recover the “deleted” files, you simply need to look into the smelly dustbin and bring back your pictures collection.
Now, what to do if you have disabled Recycle Bin? That’s you checked on the setting “Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted”. Don’t worry too much also. Let me explain how Windows file deletion works. Windows does not actually delete the file at all when you press the delete button. It simply deleted the reference to that file and makes the space the file occupied writable again. This means that you can recover most files if you are fast enough.
