Hello Bloggers !! 8)
I’m back again in the my Technical Yard section. I am about tell y’all something really cool and fascinating Stuff which is an awesome Widget for any Blog. Well this one, not only Blogger, but also other people would like it as well. I’m simply talking about a customized Music I-Pod Playlist, which runs on a GUI Music Player created by Mixpod.com, which simply plays Music of your selected Songs in a Playlist. It’s a very Cool Stuff to add in your Blog as many people like to have such thing in a blog these days. So just try it once for sure.
Not only for Blogs Like- WordPress and Blogspot, Add a Mixpod to any webpage and make people to listen to your Music Playlist. Every time someone visits your blog, He/She will be able to hear the Music of your selected Playlist on your very own Mixpod. Ohh !! That sounds really Cool huh !! 8)
It’s very very simple to add to your Blog.
First of all, visit the Official Mixpod Website, where you’ve to Create an account by Signing up at there. It’s just simple, like you create an account in Facebook. Just fill up the necessary details and then, You’re done !!
After making an account on there, It’s time to Create a New Playlist by clicking the required Tab for that. Here you’ve to first, choose a Skin which you would like to have in your Music Player. There are plenty of options to choose any one of them. Some of them like- Mixpod, MixTape, Old School,Ninja, Jeroen V2 etc. are typically MP3 Players only. Whereas, some other players like – Sidekick, MyPod Touch, Minipod, MyPod Nano etc. are MP3 and Music Video Players as well.
Out of them, My personal favorite is ‘ MyPod Touch ‘, because of its very cool look. 😉 8)
Anyways, after selecting Player Skin, it’s time to Create a Playlist of your favorite songs. Well, this job is very very easy as Mixpod gives you a place to search your favorite song and then add it to your Playlist. You could even change the order of the Songs, by dragging any particular song to the desired position. Otherwise, there is an option to Sort the songs in either Ascending or Descending order. You could even change your Player’s skin as well as Mixpod gives an option to select a Skin, if you are not satisfied with the Previous Skin.
After Creating your Music Playlist of your Music Player, Save the Playlist, by giving a Name(required) and description (optional) to it. Also, select some other options to describe the Genre and Category of your Playlist. You could even give some Tags to it as well. Now, your Playlist is defined as well.
You can now Save it, when you’re all done with the required formalities, and collect the HTML code for your playlist, which you could even Post on your Blog. However, You would be asked to Share/Post this Playlist in Website. Then, Go to Other Sites Tab, Click on ‘More‘ and then, on ‘WordPress‘ button. It would ask for your WordPress Username, its Password and Blog’s URL. Fill those spaces and Post it. But, it would automatically make it as a Post in Blog. 😛
For inserting it as a Widget on your WordPress Blog.
Copy the HTML Code from the Blog Post . Then Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the HTML Text Tab on your sidebar Menu. Paste the HTML Code, add a suitable Heading (your wish) and Save/Activate it.
Finally, you’ve inserted it in your Blog. It plays automatically whenever any visitor comes to your Blog. You and other visitors would get to see the Mixpod Player playing all your favorite songs added in your Playlist, all exclusive in your Blog. Honestly speaking, I have used it long time ago and even used it for a very long time as well. But all those Fun has ended now, as I’m done with it and removed that thing. 😛
But It’s not BAD thing to have it. You could atleast try at once.
!! Just make one and Have Fun !!
I’ve just browsed through Internet for downloading E-books for my IT Programming course. And finally, I’ve got to see this Website Site. It’s a very good to site to get E-books, not only Programming, but also on other topics Like- Literature, Humor, Tutorials etc. etc. In short, It’s a place where you could find E-books on various topics by many renowned authors and publishers.
Recently I began to buy eBooks for the Kindle application on my iPad. While I still love paper books, the digital wiles of eBooks are looking increasingly attractive to me. Below are five eBook features that may tempt you to buy electronic books too.
I should note that I wasn’t a hold-out on eBooks for moral reasons. I simply couldn’t access them until recently. Amazon’s Kindle, Sony’s Reader and Barnes & Noble’s Nook have all been either unavailable to people outside the US, or the eBook stores to populate them have been inaccessible. However with the Kindle for iPad, I’ve finally been able to enjoy the forbidden fruit of eBooks.
Moreover, You’ve got certain reasons to prefer E-books better than normal Paper Books. Here they are as follows :-
1. Social Highlighting
I must add that one thing I miss about paper books is the personal touch, for example receiving a book from a friend with their marked up highlights. By contrast, there’s something a bit impersonal about electronic highlighting. But perhaps eBooks will evolve to enable more personal sharing of highlights, perhaps even mimicing your hand writing style.Being able to highlight quotes and passages and easily find them again is a key feature that eBooks have over paper books. This activity can also be social – Audrey Watters pointed me to an Amazon Kindle page featuring the most highlighted passages of all time.
The ability to create and then easily display archived notes is a big plus for eBooks. Instead of scribbling in small writing in the margins of a paper book, you can type a clear note in your eReader.
3. Look-up of words
I recently bought a few books of poetry in the Kindle Store. Readers of poetry will know that modern poets like to use big and esoteric words. So one feature I have really enjoyed over the past week is tapping a word and having the definition displayed below. Very helpful and something that made me thankful I had the eBook version of the poetry.
4. Ability to Tweet & Facebook quotes
@Tooq commented via Twitter that he/she likes the ability to tweet or send to Facebook quotes from books, on the Kindle. This feature was introduced to Amazon Kindle 2.5 at the end of April.
You can search for topics or keywords inside your eBook, or out on the Web. Similar to the word look-up feature, this is something that augments the reading experience.
Most of these features are just the tip of the iceberg of what eBooks are capable of. As ReadWriteWeb’s Curt Hopkins opined yesterday, “the e-book format has inherent multimedia possibilities: trailers, background and reference materials, interviews, actors reciting the poems the book contains.”
Those multimedia features probably need to come from publishers, rather than eReader manufacturers.
In the meantime, let us know in the comments what your current favorite eBook features are. Or are you still a paper book hold-out?
I must recommend to you to JOIN this one for sure. Though You’ve to fetch some MONEY initially for that cause it’s not for FREE 😛 Still, It’s cool.
!! Have a Try !!
Well Guys !!
I’ve just found an amazing cool Stuff which is an awesome Widget for my Blog. It’s just a Flag Counter, which simply counts the number of visitors from different countries across the Globe. It’s a very Cool Stuff to add in your Blog. Here you’ll get an idea about the countries of visitors viewing your Blog.
Not only for Blogs Like- WordPress and Blogspot, Add a free Flag Counter to any webpage and collect flags from all over the world. Every time someone from a new country visits you, a flag will be added to your counter. Not only will this make your site far more interesting, but clicking on your Flag Counter will reveal amazing information and charts!
It’s very very simple to add to your Blog.
1st of all, visit the Official Flag Counter Website. Then create your very own Flag Counter.
For that, you’ve got two options for representing the Visiting Stats :-
(a) Top Countries – where you could see Flags of Top Countries in order
(b) Flag Map – where you could see a World Map with Flags of all Visiting Countries
However, (b) is bit hectic . So I recommend you Try (a) . 😉
Further options are very simple and understandable. You’ll easily get with it. 😀 8)
When your done with the desired settings, Click on the button “Get your Flag Counter”. After that, it would ask for your e-mail, so that you could have an access to manipulate or change settings of your Flag Counter. You could even Skip the Option if you don’t want to manipulate so in future. Then you’ll get the HTML Code for your Flag Counter, which you could even Post on your Blog.
For inserting it as a Widget on your WordPress Blog like I’ve done in mine, copy the HTML Code from the Flag Counter Website Code Box . Then visit to you Blog. Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the HTML Text Tab on your sidebar Menu. Paste the HTML Code, add a suitable Heading (your wish) and Save/Activate it.
Finally, you’ve inserted it in your Blog. It automatically counts the Page Views of your Blog and categories every visitor in respective countries. You and other visitors would get to see the Page views from different counties of your Blog.
