Outlook.com Premium is Quite the Expensive Affair

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

In its present state, it doesn’t sound like the Premium version of Outlook adds enough value to justify the subscription price. It will be interesting to see if additional capabilities are added as the service evolves.

Microsoft revealed Outlook.com Premium, a subscription-based version of its free Outlook.com email offering earlier this year. Back then, the offer was only available to select customers who took part in the beta test. The company appears to have opened the doors for sign up to Outlook.com Premium to the public recently.

Opera 21 – Always Display Full URL in Address Bar

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Shortened URLs frustrate me to no end; before I click on a link, I want to know exactly where it will take me … not just the domain name and protocol.

I may be painting a too dark picture here but find the direction that these companies are heading towards quite frightening.

Panabee – Domain Name Suggestion Tool

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

This might help if you’re trying to figure out a domain name for your site, but all of the good ones appear to be taken.

All the good domain names are already taken. I hear that phrase on a regular basis. Is it really true? No it is not, unless you define good as in exact keyword phrase. For domain names, you basically have two options. You can grab a descriptive domain name, e.g. pchardware if you want to sell PC hardware, or a brand name like Yubidoo or whatever. Descriptive domain names are often taken and your best bet is to either expand the search by adding related words or phrases, or by thinking about a brand name.
