Search Documents with DocJax

While it is possible to find Office documents and PDF ebooks on the web using the filetype search operator of Google, this method has two drawbacks:

1. You need to download the document in order to view the contents as Google, for some reason, doesn’t provide the “View as HTML” function for all documents in search results.

2. The search syntax may sometimes get a bit complex especially when you want to search documents of multiple file extensions in the same query (example: invoice template filetype:doc OR filetype:pdf OR filetype:xls).

Enter DocJax – it’s a new document search engine built on top of search results aggregated from Yahoo and Google. DocJax will simultaneously search for documents of all popular formats (PDF, DOC, XLS and PPT) or you may limit results to any one of these file formats.

Guide to Start Successful Blog

Let’s face the fact. To build and run a successful – perhaps a profitable – blog goes beyond a simple blog setup.

It takes a great deal of consistent efforts, know-hows, time and passion.

In this article, I’m going to cover the basic tips to create your first successful blog that will shave quite a bit of your learning curve, bearing in mind that no blog can achieve its success overnight.

Getting Started

1. Determine Your Goal

Everything begins with a goal in mind. Why do you want to start a blog? Is it for fun or to make a living? Everyone uses the internet for a reason. Your goal, as crystal clear as it can be, is the key to creating your first successful blog.

Tip: Don’t ever thought of starting a blog without a clearly written goal.

2. Pick a Niche

It’s important to choose a niche where your passion lies. Blogging isn’t going to be fun in the long run if what you are writing is something you aren’t passionate about.

Tip: If you’re not tech-savvy, managing a tech blog is a no-go. Choose the right niche.

3. Research Your Niche

Once you determine your niche, google it and see what others are blogging about in your niche and ask yourself, how can I be different? Here you need to discover your UPS – unique selling point.

Tip: Forget IM niche or Make Money Online niche. There can never be another John Chow or Darren Rowse.

Firefox Add-ons – Flash Game Maximizer

A new Firefox extension aptly named Flash Game Maximizer is a must-have for any Flash game enthusiast. It does one thing, and does it well: letting you toggle between standard- and full-screen modes on any game–regardless of whether it has been coded with such an option.

Considering that Flash games are hosted all over the place, and rarely with a ubiquitous user interface, you’re likely to run into a good number of them that must be played in whatever space they’ve been given on a Web page. With Flash Game Maximizer, however, you don’t have to worry about this at all.
