Traveling at the speed of ether, in Second Life or SL

Traveling at the speed of ether, in Second Life or SL

NEW YORK (AP) -- The tour was a whirlwind: dancing at a beachside disco in Spain surrounded by scantily clad women, grabbing a seat at a lively pub in Dublin, flying in a small aircraft above a lush, tropical forest. Time elapsed? Less than two hours. With no tickets required, no money spent and no need to leave your seat, touring in the virtual world of "Second Life" holds a certain appeal for travelers willing to delve deep into the Internet to find their escape.

Visitors need only download a free program, then log in. With the help of elaborate 3-D locales designed and built by the world's residents, tourists can watch their online embodiments - known as their avatars - lounge at the beach, dine at a romantic restaurant, or go out dancing at a crowded nightclub.

Like in the real world, it's easy to get lost. Longtime inhabitants of "Second Life" are creating automated tours, opening virtual travel agencies and even publishing travel guidebooks modeled after those seen in the hands of confused tourists.

AP article has the rest of the story!

Miss Universe 2007, comes from Japan!

WeSeePeople saw some people today while watching Miss Universe show and competition. It was a happy event and was glad to see all those beuties! And it was a double dose of happiness to see Miss Japan crowned since My better half happened to be Japanese as well!
Anyway rather than boring you with my writing, I am going to borrow from Pinoyalbum, who I think have done a better job in describing the event!

A 20-year-old dancer from Japan was crowned Miss Universe 2007 on Monday night, marking only the second time her country has won the world beauty title.Dressed in a black, red and purple Japanese-style gown, Riyo Mori nervously grabbed the hands of first runner-up, Natalia Guimaraes of Brazil, just before the winner was announced. Then she threw her hands up and covered her mouth, overcome with emotion.

But she gathered herself together enough to catch the diamond-and-pearl-studded headpiece valued at $250,000 as it slipped off her head when Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera of Puerto Rico crowned her. Mori immediately placed it back on her head.

The last time Japan won the pageant was in 1959 when Akiko Kojima became the first Miss Universe from Asia.

“She is an amazing champion, an amazing woman and I hear that they go totally insane in Japan, so that’s good,” said Donald Trump, who co-owns the pageant with NBC.

Miss USA Rachel Smith, who slipped and fell to the floor during the evening gown competition and was jeered by the Mexican audience during the interview phase, was the contest’s fourth runner-up.

Mori, from the small town of Shizuoka at the base of Mount Fuji, won the cheers of the Mexico City audience when she opened her interview, saying ‘Hola, Mexico!’

“I learned how to always be happy, be patient and to be positive, and this is what I want to teach to the next generation,” she said.

Ms. Mori is 20 years-old and has been dancing since she was 4. She loves traveling the world and enjoys visiting museums and watching musicals.

The judging panel for the 2007 Miss Universe Pageant included NBC’s “Heroes” James Kyson Lee, NBC’s “Deal or No Deal” briefcase model Lindsay Clubine, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, rocker Dave Navarro, World and Olympic figure skating champion Michelle Kwan, fashion designer Marc Bouwer, Novela Star Mauricio Islas, “Project Runway” judge and Elle magazine fashion director Nina Garcia, and former Miss Universes Dayanara Torres (1993) and Christiane Martel (1953)."

WOW update 2.1 or WOW patch 2.1

If you thought this WOW update or patch is something to do with Microsoft and Vista, you are in the wrong place.
This WOW is World Of Warcraft!
And the patch is updating the US version of World of Warcraft to v2.1.0. It adds The Black Temple raid dungeon, 100 new rare and epic items, tier-6 armor sets.
You want more? here is a handfull;

The Black Temple

The Temple of Karabor was the center of draenei worship until its priests were slaughtered by demonically corrupted orcs. In the massacre's aftermath the warlocks of the Shadow Council seized the structure and gave it a new name: the Black Temple.

When the Alliance invaded Draenor after the Second War, the orc shaman Ner'zhul hastily opened several dimensional portals in order to escape. The resulting magical backlash ripped the world apart. Drawn by these portals, the pit lord Magtheridon arrived in what had come to be known as Outland and took the temple as his seat of power.

His dominion over Outland remained unchallenged until the arrival of Illidan the Betrayer. The pit lord proved no match for the wielder of the Twin Blades of Azzinoth. Today Illidan occupies the temple, awaiting any and all who would challenge his rule.

Druid Epic Flight Form Introduced
The Druid Epic flight form will be available through a series of quests, similar to the Warlock and Paladin Epic mount quests before it. This quest series will also open up a new boss in Sethekk Halls, and ultimately lead to the epic flight form.

Ethereum Prison
Players in good standing with the Consortium will be tasked to deal with the most recent activities of the nefarious Ethereum. With new quests, items, and content for the solo and small-group level 70 player, the Ethereum Prison will be the proving grounds for many aspiring to greatness.

The Skyguard, ShaĆ¢tari warriors specializing in their command of the skies above Shattrath, have taken the offensive directly to the Arakkoa capital city, Skettis. Perched high in the mountains of Terrokar, and only accessible with use of a flying mount, Skettis holds new and exciting content for the solo or small-group level 70 player. All new quests, 5-person bosses, rare and epic items, and a new type of flying mount await those willing to lend their sword or stave to the battle.

Nether Drake
The Netherwing faction and quest line continues and the long awaited Nether Drake becomes available. The Nether Drake is a special 280% speed epic flying mount that is obtainable through solo and small-group play. The quest to obtain one will be difficult, but the reward will surely show your dedication to the Netherwing cause as you soar through the skies of Outland on your very own ethereal drake.

The ogre plateau of enlightenment opens to those who prove their worth in Blades Edge Mountains. Level 70 players will be able to help the ogres of Ogriala battle invading forces and engage in new and exciting quests, such as a repeatable and ever popular bombing-run, this time using your own flying mount but with a dangerous twist! Featuring tons of new quests, the Ogriala faction, 5-person bosses, and rare and epic items, Ogriala is a place were hoping all will aspire to enter.

The Ruins of Lordaeron Arena
For those combatants engaging in the Steamwheedle Cartel's gladiatorial combat, an arena nestled within the Ruins of Lordaeron has been added to the mix of venues. Players taking part in either rated battles or skirmishes may now find themselves battling for glory within the new arena.

- The Black Temple is now available for play and Illidan awaits. Are you prepared?
- The Consortium and Protectorate need your help! Players with Honored or higher reputation with the Consortium should seek out Protectorate Advisor Rahim at the Stormspire in Netherstorm or Commander Ameer at the Protectorate Watch Post in Netherstorm to get a briefing on the most recent nefarious activities of the Ethereum.
- Skettis is now available. Players will need a flying mount to reach this new area.

The same amount of damage/healing per casting will occur, but will take less time.

- Dodge Rating: Low level players now calculate dodge from dodge rating at the same rate as level 34 players.

- Arenas
The Ruins of Lordaeron Arena is now available for play. The Shadow Sight buff now allows players to see other stealthed players at a greater range.

POPFLY from Microsoft gives another Social Networking platform

Popfly is for creating, sharing, and embedding mashups, web pages, and gadgets. Right now, Popfly is invitation only, which means you either need to find someone who has a Popfly account and get them to invite you, or you need to visit http://www.popfly.com and sign in with your Windows Live ID to join the wait list for invitations. Just like the Joost phenomenon, I think Microsoft is planing to get a boost by touching the curiosity button on all of us.

On the alpha product, I was just a teeny bit ;) reminded of Yahoo Pipes. But that is just initial interface. There is more to it. If you are not a member, follow the links below to get some information.
Here is some info from release notes;

  • You need an invitation to get in. If you don’t have one, you can sign into the site with your Windows Live ID and request one or find someone who has one and bug them until they give you one.
  • You need a Windows Live ID associated with an email address to receive an invitation. You can get a Live ID at http://login.live.com.
  • You need IE 6, IE 7, or Firefox 2.0. We support IE 6 and 7 (Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista) and Firefox 2 (Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X).
  • You need Silverlight™. To use some of our site you’ll need the beta version of Silverlight™ 1.0 from http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/install.aspx. Don’t worry, it’s small and we’ll even check if you have it installed for you and give you a link to install it.
  • On Firefox, you may get a message about not being able to verify the identity of the site; it’s a minor certificate problem that we’re fixing very soon.
  • And yes, we really meant to have "Logo goes here!" in the upper left side of the screen.

Porn.com gets 9 million and gets ready for a better "Product"!

Talk about gathering place for sex related stuff, porn.com supposed to attract millions of peoples or visitors a month and this is one of the reasons that it got paid one of the highest paid, a fee above 9 million for a porn or sex related site. Is it social networking? I doubt. It is a place where people go looking for you know what. I doubt they go there socially. They do that in myspace! ;).
According to a press release;
Today MXN Ltd., affiliated with PIMPROLL.COM®, announced the acquisition of the highly coveted domain name PORN.COM for total consideration in excess of $9 Million USD.

Brokered by Moniker.com, terms of the transaction were not fully disclosed, but it is believed to be one of the most significant adult domain transactions in history.

Plans for the new PORN.COM were not immediately revealed, and the new owner considers its development to be a "longer-term project".

"We will take our time with PORN.COM", says a representative of MXN Ltd. It does not need to transform overnight. In the meantime, we will keep it parked with PremiumTraffic.com, a leading domain name monetization company".

Attracting millions of monthly unique visitors, PORN.COM is one of the top type-in traffic adult entertainment destinations. PIMPROLL.COM® plans to leverage this traffic by offering a multiplicity of premium products and services that will solidify PORN.COM as the web's leading adult portal.

REDFIN want to be the Amazon, ebay etc of real state.

We like everyone still watch TV to socially entertain ourselves. The recently aired segment by '60 minutes' on REDFIN has sparked a debate all over the continent. '60 minutes''s Lesley Stahl, explained how the Internet is changing the real estate business by highlighting Seattle-based discount broker Redfin and its founder Glen Kelman.
I for myself side with redfin. Many a times I have found that real estate agents go and paste a price on property as he or she wish. Then another does the same thing. If you do search for a piece of property, one would find multiple sources providing contrasting prices. They fail to understand, this day and age, when one could focus on a property using Google Earth or Virtual Earth. To map and analyze a property without much help from agents.
But according to many industry blogs buzzing today with commentary on the piece, agents who work for traditional real estate brokerages, disagree.

One blogger, Jonathan Dalton of Century 21 Arizona Foothills and Dalton's Arizona Homes, wrote, "In light of Sunday's 60 Minutes piece - shedding light on the real estate industry, if you believe the Inman news hype, or simply glorifying rebate-model proponents such as Redfin - in which Redfin's Glenn Kelman [was] featured, the question becomes how much time is spent discussing industry reaction (or lack thereof) to the bill of rights publicity stunt. And if any, it will be even more interesting to hear Kelman explain the yawning of the REIC."
