New Software Deal of the Day Website
Software-DOD.com is a new site
that offers software applications at a significantly
reduced price for only twenty-four hours.
Each day a new software deal is available.
If you cannot resist a great deal then Software-DOD.com
is for you! Software-DOD.com features popular
software titles. The software discounts
range from 10-90% off of list prices, and
the software is only available at that price
for twenty-four hours! Software-DOD.com
also contains second chance offers. The
second chance offers are still discounted
and designed for those that miss the deal
of the day offer, but the second chance
offer is not as deeply discounted as the
deal of the day offer.
Many of the software applications on the
Software-DOD.com website even have trial
versions available, which allows website
visitors to try the software prior to making
a purchase decision. Interested visitors
can preview the applications that will be
available on the Software-DOD website for
the coming week. Additionally, deals are
easy to monitor because RSS feeds are available
that contain the daily specials, the second
chance offers, and a preview of applications
that will be featured on the Software-DOD.com
Other webmasters and publishers can also
syndicate the Software Deal of the Day offers,
and integrate the discount offers into their
own websites. Software-DOD.com provides
the RSS tools to make the
integration process painless for webmasters.
The offers will dynamically update each
night as the new offers become available.
Providing such great software deals are
sure to endear webmasters to their website
and Guidelines for RSS Feeds
We felt it would be helpful to provide
general guidelines for those constructing
an RSS 2.0 feed. In general, the following
are guidelines for constructing an RSS feed.
It is good to get into the habit of validating
the RSS feed, either with software, or with
an online validator.

Mac is an Essential Client Side Application
Blog post about how a user survived
when their MacBook went down and the apps
that were a necessity!
There WERE some client-side applications
I needed to install locally and use, however,
to continue working, processing information,
and publishing media. (hint:
one of the critical applications was FeedForAll Mac!)
Starting a New Year is all about self-reflecting.
Most individuals celebrate the incoming
year by looking back, determining what goals
were met and what goals fell short. Most
who have made past resolutions then look
forward and resolve to do better in the
Like any Internet marketer, I have a long
laundry list of things that I intend to
get to... invariably each year the list
grows longer, and rarely do I make any significant
headway on new projects, ideas, or marketing
techniques. I resolve for that to change
in 2008! I have compiled a list of Internet
Marketing resolutions for the coming year.
If your list is already too long, consider

What is Hot and What is Not in Technology
The lens through which viewers receive
their news has changed. The images of struggle
are no longer frozen in time; technology
has helped preserve and personalize these
conflicts by producing moving tributes to
the conflicts of humankind.
The strife and internal conflicts that marred
the globe in 2006 continued into 2007: Mynamar
(Burma), Palestine and Lebanon all continue
to struggle with internal conflicts in their
borders. The differences between 2006 and
2007 are not obvious; however, under close
examination, it is evident that several
external struggles have been transformed
into internal conflicts. In 2006, many countries
attempted to influence their neighbors.
This was evident with Iran attempting to
influence the turmoil in Iraq, and Syria
attempting to control Lebanon. Both struggles
have evolved into internal personal conflicts
While video is not a new technology, the
spread of video-viewing technology in devices
like the iPod has brought the faces of terror
into the homes of the western world. Advances
in technology have also encouraged the West
to open both their hearts and wallets, with
many sponsoring children like Youseff, a
child with a horribly scarred face. The
same technology that brought Youssef's story
to millions of homes, also helped bring
tragedies like the Virginia Tech massacres.
In 2007, the heavy reliance on technology
forced censorship and spying to the forefront
of concerns. Many western countries accused
the communist nation, China, of cyber snooping
and hacking. Also, Russia did not remain
unscathed in 2007, with widespread suspicion
and accusations following the death of Alexander
Litvinenko in late 2006. On a more positive
note, North Korea seems to have complacently
agreed to nuclear compliance.

A Year in Review
2007 FeedForAll a Year in Review
2007 has been a busy year for our FeedForAll
developers at NotePage. I thought I would
take a moment to recap some of the accomplishments
our team has managed.

New Audio Recording for Podcasters
In 2007 our team launched audio recording
software specifically for podcasters.

customers about auto-discovery we decided
to simplify the process. We created a new
autodiscovery tool that will create the
code for the header of a webpage.

Tutorial to help figure out their iPod's
Combining the power of FeedForAll and RecordForAll
