Information about PS2

October 27, 2009 Leave a comment

The PlayStation 2 (shortened to PS2) is a video game manufactured by Sony. It is the successor to the Playstation, and the predecessor to the Playstation 3. Many analysts predicted a close three-way match up between the PS2 and competitors, Microsoft’s Xbox and the Nintendo Gamecube. However, the release of several blockbuster games during the 2001 holiday season maintained sales momentum and held off the PS2’s rivals. In addition to PS2 software, the PS2 can read both CDs and DVDs. It’s backward compatible with PlayStation games. The PS2 also supports PlayStation memory cards (for PlayStation game saves only) and controllers, though they work with PS1 games and the controllers may not support all functions for PS2 games. The PS2’s Dual Schock 2 controller is essentially an upgraded PlayStation DualShock. Like its predecessor, the DualShock 2 controller has force feedback, which is usually called the “vibration” function. The standard PlayStation 2 memory card has an 8MB capacity and employs Sony’s MagicGate encryption. This requirement prevented the production of memory cards by third parties who did not purchase a license for the MagicGate encryption. Memory cards without encryption can be used to store PlayStation game saves, but PlayStation games would be unable to read from or write to the card – such a card could only be used as a backup. The PS2 has undergone many adjustments, some only of internal construction and others involving ample external changes as well. Some PS2 games include ACE Combat, All-Star Baseball, American Chopper, The Ant Bully, Catwoman, Family Guy etc.

Difference between White Hat and Black Hat SEO

October 23, 2009 3 comments

When it comes to white hat and black hat SEO, the name says it all! White hat SEO obviously complies with the set rules of promoting websites as dictated by the search engines. Whereas, black hat SEO is the process of exploiting and manipulating certain possibilities that are viewed seriously by the search engines. In fact, the very name SEO is considered devilish by many website owners! They argue that any attempt to manipulate the contents of a website to influence ranking is unfair and feel neither white hat nor black hat SEO is ethically good.

Even the allowed techniques of optimizing web pages to rank high in search engines evoke a mixed response from the website owners and webmasters. However, search engines are designed to work in that pattern so it leaves you with no other choice but to optimize your website for search engines. Interestingly the irony is all those who still argue against SEO have themselves optimized their own websites for search engines!

Most of the techniques in white hat SEO are also followed in black hat SEO but with subtle changes that are not legal as far as search engines are concerned. A few examples of black hat SEO techniques will enlighten you on the various tricks involved in black hat SEO. For instance, optimizing web pages with relevant keywords is purely a white hat SEO technique. On the contrary black hat optimization would use the same technique but in a different manner, i.e., by keyword stuffing, invisible text, and doorway pages. This certainly can fool the search engines but not every time. With machines getting smarter by the day search engines can detect such techniques. If your website had followed any of the black hat SEO techniques, it can be penalized or even banned by the search engines.

It is always wise to comply with the set rules while optimizing your website for search engines. If you are not confident about the techniques, you have at hand, do get assistance from professionals that can help you achieve your desired goals.

Difference between PS2 & PS3 Game

October 19, 2009 7 comments

The demand for video game consoles has skyrocketed of late with the availability and awareness on gaming technology. Sony, well known as a leader in consumer electronics, has also joined the race for supremacy in the war of gaming consoles.

Sony has up to now released two popular consoles: Play Station 2 and Play Station 3. With so many getting released, people have started comparing the performance of various gaming consoles, and those from Sony are not an exception to this. Let us have a look at the main differences between the two consoles: PS2 and the PS3.

The PS2 arrives with a massive collection of games and is also reverse compatible. This means that it is possible to play all the older games. PS2 also supplies a DVD player that is somewhat cheaper compared to other regular DVD players. It is also compatible with both DVDs and CDs. Meanwhile, with the PS3, you will have to buy a HDMI cable for plying Blu-ray movies.  Although the PS3 gives better processing speed and extensibility across the Internet, it is high on price and its Blu-ray feature is not good enough to beat the quality of HD-DVD. Also you will have to spend further on supplementary hardware.

While the Play Station 3 was a much better product compared to its predecessors; it didn’t add any new feature for people to talk about. The difference is mainly the improved graphical power offered by Play Station 3 with respect to game character responsiveness and awareness. However, for the time being, PlayStation 2 does seem to have a big lead over PS3. Surely, Sony has to do something about it or else the PS2 will continue to stay on top despite newer releases.

This is possible as there is a lot of connections in the technologies of DVD and CD.

This is so fast that your gaming will almost resemble the speed of action in latest movies, thereby helping it to be more realistic. With such impressive advantages, the PS 2 truly has what it takes to become the king of gaming consoles. However, the gaming console industry is also one of the most competitive, with many others in the race. Nevertheless the PS2 is the most popular console for the time being.

Things to know while starting an Affiliate Website

October 15, 2009 2 comments

Today, internet marketing has become a very popular industry worldwide.  This has made a lot of companies to start selling their products online through affiliate marketing agencies. A large number of affiliate agencies have come up and we also have a good figure for the number of affiliates earning money from the comfort of their homes by way of affiliate commissions.    Any one having a website can start earning money through affiliate programs. But there are also many who have failed in affiliate marketing because their websites were not properly designed. Also designing an affiliate website is a lot different from other websites as there are certain important factors to be considered.    Let us have a look at some of the ways of starting a successful affiliate website.    The first thing to do is to get a website up and running. To get accepted by the best affiliate companies it is necessary to have a proper working website. This website need not be hi-fi; a basic website will do the job. Never think about using free WebPages for affiliate marketing as it may not appear professional.    The next step is getting approved by the affiliate program. To get approved you should design the website in a way that it suits the theme of the product you are going to promote. Your site will be reviewed by the affiliate company based on how well it meets certain criteria of the company.    Use an attractive headline for your site. The headline is the first thing that a visitor is going to notice, so it should be able to attract the attention of the visitor.    Focus on targeted traffic. See that your web content targets traffic related to the niche of the product you are promoting. Suppose if you are selling hair loss pills, your site should have content related to how you can cure hair loss problems.     Get your site to rank higher for targeted keywords. This can only be achieved by using unique, relevant and useful content that is regularly updated. Also you need to follow search engine optimization principles like using the right keywords, submitting the site to search engines etc     Do not use “direct marketing” kind of slang in the content; instead the content should persuade the reader on clicking the ad links rather than forcing them to click.     Last but not the least; include a FAC section in your website. Providing such an option to clarify the doubts of visitors will not only make you site look more credible but also professional.     All you need to do to start a successful affiliate income generating website is to use the right approach suitable for affiliate programs. Along with a little bit of originality, you also need some patience as it can take some time for the site to become popular with respect to the targeted niche. Once this is achieved there is no looking back, you are sure to acquire success in your affiliate marketing efforts with a good income flowing in on a regular basis
