Once exported, users can then customize their image, uploading and adding props and backgrounds to liven things up. You will even be able to create festive cards that you can send to friends and relatives.

All clothing choices are free, and will remain available. It is easy to tell what is new when you are in the avatar editor, just look for the gold star. Any item of clothing with a gold star is new since the last time you signed in to the avatar editor.

Finally, Microsoft states the application will provide options for every special occasion, from XBL member's birthdays to holidays.

307w ago - Think your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is messing with your connection performance? Now you can find out, with Google's new online [Register or Login to view links] that will diagnose your network connection. Here's a quick walkthrough on how to make the best of them.

Google's broadband test tools are located at Measurementlab.net. On that page, you'll see an first icon that says "Users: Test Your Internet Connection". Click that, and then you'll be taken to a [Register or Login to view links] where there are three tests available, and two more listed as coming soon. However, out of the three available tests, only one of them is fully automated and easy to use.

Glasnost, second on the list, will check whether your ISP is slowing down (like Comcast) or blocking Peer2Peer (P2P) downloads from software such as BitTorrent.

Google Breaks the Internet: This site may harm your computer

350°
307w ago - Update: It seems fixed now, the "This site may harm your computer." appears to be removed from the majority of Web sites.

Well at 1:55am on a Sunday in Australia, I went on google to search my local newspapers Web site, strangely I noticed that the site had been listed as harmful.

Scrolling down the page revealed that every other page was also listed as harmful. It came to me that the ultimate test to see if this was correct was to search google in google and just as I suspected, it was blacklisted as HARMFUL.

I found this hilarious so I took a screen capture in case Google tried to cover it up quickly. Its not often a large company such as google makes such as LARGE mistake.

This capture is attached to this article. Hope you enjoy!
 

Ten Cheap And Easy Upgrades to Revive Your Old PC

100°
307w ago - Is your old PC starting to feel a little sluggish? Upgrading a desktop computer really isn't as difficult as it sounds. The components are modular, the slots uniform and systems are expressly designed for expansion.

In most circumstances, you won't even need a screwdriver as most modern cases are held on with dinky little catches. Here are 10 upgrades that even your granny could do.

1. ReadyBoost
Want to speed up Windows Vista? ReadyBoost uses up to 4GB of flash memory as a disk cache for your hard drive, making file access and program launching faster. You can use a USB stick, Compact Flash card, SD card or any kind of removable memory to do the job.

2. Intel Turbo Memory
Similar to ReadyBoost, Intel Turbo Memory enhances the caching capabilities of your hard drive by swapping frequently accessed data into flash memory. The upgrade is fitted into a PCI Express Mini Card port - so is ideal for notebooks. You can pick up a 1GB card for around £30.

3. Second hard drive
Most desktop machines have a secondary HDD fitting dangling inside the cabinet, ready to plug in another hard drive. It really is just a case of slotting in the drive, connecting a power lead and data connector. Check first whether the system takes IDE or SATA drives - then use...
