Here I would like to point out a good web application which may help you directly convert a web page into PDF formate.

It is a bad nightmare to take printouts of a web page because there is no standard size of a web page so there are chances that you may miss some important text in the print.
So better way is to convert it first in PDF & then take printouts.

The web application is iWeb2Print.

You are simply suppose to enter URL of the web page and choose size of document whichever you want and within few seconds it will show you a link "Download PDF" from where you can download generated PDF file.

Well until now we are used to write text status on Facebook. Just think about sharing voice (audio) status. If you want to record a video and post it then you can do that from Facebook itself but to share only audio messages you can use a cool Facebook application named MyMic.

Using this application you can record voice for 20 seconds & then post it as status on your wall. 20 seconds for a status is enough but if you want more time then you can spend a little to upgrade application for longer messages.

Once you click "start recording" button then the application will ask permission to access your mic which you have to accept to use application. Now after recording when you click "publish" button then application will post your message on your wall.

Here I'm going to show an important tip which will be very useful or Bloggers & web administrators. It is about pinging your new posts & site updates. Now what exactly pinging is? It is a method to let search engines know that you contents on your site are updated. Sending pings will attract search engines like yahoo , google etc. to track new changes on your site and this will definitely going to increase hits on your site , Blog.

Now how to ping your site? ?
Well there are many ping service sites available to do this.
Here is a list of such sites. You can use anyone of them.:)

Only thing you are suppose to do is that go to any of above site. Enter your URL , Title & content type and click the button "pingggggggggggg".:)

Most of the experienced blogger are practising this.If you are not then start now because it will really going to increase hits on your blog.

Any time u send a mail to new person , Gmail will automatically save add that person's contact list. So next time when you want to send e mail to the same person you need not to remember his/her email id because gmail has saved it as contact if you will write any part of his/her name gmail will show you list of matching contacts & you can select from it.

Now above feature is really very helpful if you are used to send mails to some small no of important people. But if you are used to send many emails a day to some people who are not very important then also Gmail will keep on auto saving those people to your contact list. So if you fill that these unnecessary contacts are cluttering your address book then you can disable this auto save feature. Here's how.....

1)Login to your Gmail account.

2)Click on setting tab.

3)Now under general tab you will find option like: "Create contacts for auto-complete" . For this option select radio button : "I will add contacts myself" .

Note: After changing this setting Gmail will not auto save any contacts so make sure that you add important contacts manually.:)

Ha ha ha..... Google again making people April fool.
