How to view mobile sites on firefox

Posted on August 7, 2007. Filed under: Tips-Tricks (websites) |

Hi
I was trying to see how Gmail and other application’s mobile version looks . As i have a very expensive GPRS so i didnt wanted to access those sites using it . So while searching for its solution , i came across this . This wonderful plugin allows you to access mobile sites easily in Firefox itself . So you dont need to install any extra bit of software or some WML Browser .

Go ahead give it a try Firefox Plugin

——————————————–

Some of the sites that you will like to visit are (on your phone ) :

  • TagTag.Com
  • http://mail2web.com/wap/
  • mobile.google.com for gmail, picasa web , google calender , google news , etc.
  • m.yahoo.com for Yahoo One Search , news , mail , messanger . local , etc.

I am using my AirTel Live for accessing Yahoo Mail Rs.30 per month . I can also visit other sites but then they cost 15 paise (1Rs=100paise) per 10 kb which is quite expensive . And even then i can’t acces Gmail , Airtel people have blocked that site . Tell me if it can be used to file case on them under consumer court . X-(

Posting the link again

Posted on August 2, 2007. Filed under: Tips-Tricks (websites) |

Techies please skip this post

————————–

Hi Friends

Very recently , One of my uncle lost over Rs.5,000 in a internet fraud , it’s really sad that people ignore even small small precautions while dealing with money on net . Buying,selling and even banking is extremely safe on internet unless and untill you keep few tips in mind . So , i am now sharing few quick tips on safe internet banking or buying or any kind of money exchange Plus few general tips to save yourself from internet credit card thieves .

  1. Never ever use your credit card in public cyber cafes .
  2. Don’t share your credit card number with one .
  3. Whenever you buy anything from anywhere with your credit card please let the credit card processing happen in front of your eyes only . The person may note your credit card no. and use it for internet shopping .
  4. Avoid using your credit card on not-so-popular sites .
  5. Whenever you decide to use credit card on site , just check if there is any ‘Lock’ symbol on your address bar of your browser or at bottom-right corner .
  6. Never click on any link in mails that clams to be are from ebay,paypal or some bank . If the mail asks to for some clarification . Go to your account on that site but by typing that site’s web address yourself , not by clicking on the link given in the mail .
  7. Please always bear in mind that any legal banking site never asks your personal information on email .
  8. Be careful from mails that says that they need some help from you to encash some family’s property and they will share its part with you , on your financial help . They are 99.99% fake mails . But yeah , you can always talk to them if you want to have some fun . Once i carried on similar mail exchange with an nigerian girl for more than a month . I wish i would have saved that mails , it would have been excellent post for blog .
  9. And avoid using paying in advance to unknown shops unless there is some guarntee .

How to download free music from music radio sites and even youtube

Posted on May 27, 2007. Filed under: Tips-Tricks (websites) |

Hi friends
There are many many websites available for listening music like musicovery.com , smashits.com and many many more . They have something in common , their music player are built in flash and whenever their is some flash involved . The music is being loaded from a file which is first loaded in that flash player . With a simple FireFox plugin , you can download any such source file which can be a mp3 file or a fla file which is used by youtube , break.com and similar sites . Download plugin here ->Link<-

I tried this on Smashits.com

Warning: Downloading mp3 like this is illegal under US Laws and although i tried downloading mp3 songs like this , i didn’t (oh really !)

–> Ok , i tried this song

–> See , as soon as the file is being loaded and being played also , the DownloadHelper plugin automatically starts dancing indicating a download supported file .


–>clicking on this icon , showsthe list of files which can be download

So , now the file is being downloaded (hey , this is not my comp ok , so copywrite people stay away from me ) , BTW you can even see the actual file location of file which is usually hidden by us .

This hack is possible in every site that uses flash files and embedded files .
