Update Your Wordpress

I've been a little slow recently and have only got around to updating my Wordpress Blog to version 2.whatever, must say I am really impressed with the little changes they have made to it.

Unlike Blogger, Wordpress are making things even easier for webmaters to control and edit there sites.

Well done Wordpress. My desire to move iSmooch over is increasing more and more.

In other news, I realised yesterday why I havent been getting any traffic for a while. Its becasuse I deleted my sitemeter tracker, so infact I may well have been getting traffic but it never registered... what a N00B!!

Furthermore, my Google Adsense earning shot through the roof yesterday... I made $2.67. One of my best days yet.

Along with that, I also received a request to place a banner on one my other sites for a annual Fee. RESULT!! Its not much, but every penny helps.

New Name Contest!!

Three posts in one day... wow!!

Right, I am seriously gonna change my Blog completly because im fed up with using Blogspot.

Im gonna lift it and move it to Wordpress with my other Blogs, but since is taken I need to come up with a new URL name, so if anyone who is reading this (if there is anyone) has any suggestions and the URL is available I will choose it and use it!

If I can generate enought traffic in the next week or so and get people to come up with some new names, I will take it one step further and allow my readers to choose the new design.

Get Thinking!!


Ever since I have set up this blog I always thought it would be super cool if I could get, Cos it sounds so much awesomer (that's a word... right?).

But every time I looked at buying it, some guy in the states owned it, but never had a site up and running with it. Now if you type in, your REDIRECTED to a dating site called iMooch. What a god dam waste of a great URL.

Useful iPhone tips and Tricks

As a recent new customer to the iphone I quickly went in search of some useful tips and Tricks that I could perform. I come across this video on Youtube that shows you alot of useful things that a manual would usually show us (since the iphone doesn't come with a manual, we don't have that pleasure).

Here it is:

Like I said, this is just a basic tutorial on what the iPhone can do. It can do so much more, like Stream media from your PC, or you can Watch the BBC iPlayer.

Stay tuned, I will post a few other cool things it can do in due course.

Number one in Google

As you may have noticed, I haven't really written match on this site for some time. Just kinda lost interest / run out of things to say.

Well, here I am, and maybe this post will be the first of many more to come.

I have slightly changed the layout of the page, but i still think it looks really crap. Blogger don't really provide many options on the template front, which is why I now recommend Wordpress for setting up a blog. Its so much cleaner and more options to tweek your site. Check out this as an example: I Like To Rant

I've taken away alot of crappy adds and affiliate marketing stuff. I didn't earn any money with it so decided to boot it. I still think there is alot of money to be earned from affiliate marketing online, but it looks like a tricky thing to get in to, and at the mo i really don't have the motivation to do it.

Along with my new layout I also have a new position in Google. After being at war with 3 hot girls for a couple of months, I can now, proudly say, that I have whipped there Arse's and sit at number one on Google for the term "ismooch". Which I doubt will do anything in terms of traffic, but its a personal achievement that I am pleased with :)

Not to sure how long I will stay there though, as it appears that since I amended my layout slightly, my search engine traffic has become non existent. I'm thinking that it may take Google some time to find me again, so in the meantime, I'm just writing to my self.

Convert YouTube Vid to MP4

Hmmm, long time no post.

Just thought I'd quickly share this with everyone (or no one).

If you see something on YouTube and wouldn’t mind having a MP4 version of the video clip, so you can move it on to your iPod or leave it on your computer or do what ever you want to do with it, I recommened heading over to this cool website and following the directions.

This works excellently with Firefox, so if that isnt you primary broswer, do two things 1. Download it now, here 2. Hit your self round the head for being so stupid for not using Firefox in the first place.

Watch the BBC iPlayer on the PS3

Last week the BBC iPlayer was released for use on the Nintendo Wii, giving users another way to experience the greatness that is the iPlayer and ISP providers yet another reason to get angry!

This means that we can now catch up with our favourite BBC programmes on our PC's, iPhones, iPod Touches and now our video console.

Well if your like me an don't have a Wii, this news isnt that great.

Fortunately, a Hacker has found a way in making the iPlayer think your PS3 is a Wii, meaning you can now use your Hi Def games console to watch BBC favs such as Top Gear and Enders!

Again, this still isn't great news to be, as I have a Xbox 360, but still thought i'd share the news.

To use the service on your PS3, simple point your PS3 web browser to!

Its that simple.

It makes you wonder why BBC, Sony and Microsoft have not yet released an official version for the other (current) next gen consoles.

Fingers crossed, that someone will find a hack for the 360!
