  • Smart Saving Tips For First Home Buyers

    Saving money for a home can sometimes be like a Looney Tunes show where Wile E. Coyote always fails to capture the Road Runner. This happens just when the Coyote thinks he’s gotten a hold of Road Runner, only for Road Runner to slip through his grasp. While that story arc is funny in cartoons, it can also feel very depressing in the real world. A common scenario is this: Buyer needs x amount of deposit to purchase a house. They need three years to reach x. But after three years of saving, the property increases in value, and the minimum deposit is now x + y. To reach that, buyer needs an…

    Henry Mccarthy

    Before we go on a step-by-step breakdown of finding the best buy-to-let mortgage to your needs, you have to understand the similarities and differences between residential mortgages and buy-to-let mortgages. First of all, buy-to-let mortgage lenders want investors to guarantee that the monthly rent they will charge is about 125 per cent more than the monthly interest payment on the loan you are going to take out. This means that a monthly interest payment of £500 requires monthly rental income of at least £625. Secondly, you have to pay standard deposit fee rate of 25 per cent or more,…

Because of high property prices in the capital cities and the countryside, more people (especially the younger chaps) are choosing to shack up in a rental flat for the meantime. If you’re going to rent for the first time, it’s important to know what you’re getting into before you sign that lease contract. This is important so you won’t end up on the losing side of the deal! Remember that you also have rights as a tenant, and just because your landlord allows you to live in his property doesn’t mean he gets…

    Selling a house can sometimes be a real challenge. If you are contemplating on selling your property, here are some steps you may want to consider: 1) Ask yourself: “Do I really need to sell”? You have to ask yourself this question over and over again, because sometimes, selling isn’t the best decision for your situation. Do you want to sell because you want more space for you and your family? Why don’t you consider building an extension, converting the attic, or digging out the basement? I’m making this suggestion, since the current cost of moving is awfully close to…

    When Google Earth was first introduced 10 years ago, it immediately stole my heart. Beyond the freedom to fly anywhere in the world, I was captivated by the ability to paint and visualize geographic data on this incredible global canvas.Drawn to datasets backed by real human stories, I started making my own maps with KML a few weeks after Earth’s release in 2005. For my master’s degree, I used Google Earth to build a virtual representation of a high-tech biological research reserve. Vint Cerf saw my work, which eventually led to a job on the Google Earth Outreach team, turning my passion…

    Nestled between Messina and Catania in the North East of Sicily sits one of the most active volcanos in the world: Mount Etna. The highest volcano on the European continent—and almost constantly in a state of activity—dwarfs all around it; its fertile volcanic soil cultivates the fine vineyards, farms and orchards draped about its slopes.On June 21, 2013, Etna was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Now, to celebrate the second anniversary of this event, you can now explore the beast the locals know ominously as "a muntagna"“the mountain”) on Street View in Google Maps. Our…

    Even as smartphone and tablet screen sizes get bigger, it can be hard for our fingers to keep up. It’s still so easy to click when you mean to swipe or to tap on a link or ad you didn’t mean to. When it comes to mobile ad clicks across networks, recent third party studies estimate that up to 50% of clicks are accidental. For advertisers, this can artificially inflate clickthrough rates and increase costs.As we continue to enhance our display ad formats to make them more engaging, we also strive to maximize click quality.

  • Old Google Drive Goes Missing

    Alex Chitu
    2 Jul 2015 | 12:49 pm
    Last year, Google launched a new desktop interface for Google Drive. If you missed the old interface, the "settings" menu allowed you switch to the old interface by clicking "Leave the new Drive". The classic Google Drive also added a link to the new interface, so you could click "Experience the new Drive" and switch back to the new UI.Now the "Leave the new Drive" option is missing and you can no longer switch to the old Google Drive. Even the URL for the old Google Drive doesn't work: https://drive.google.com/?srtp=0&authuser=0.Google still has a help center article about "switching…

    Emanuele Bartolomucci, a reader of this blog, noticed an interesting feature in Google Translate. If you click the "listen" button next to the text you want to translate or the translation, Google converts the text into speech. Click "listen" again and the speed decreases, probably because Google assumes that you are listening again to better get the correct pronunciation. It's like asking Google: "Could you speak more slowly, please?"If you click "listen" the third time, Google goes back to the normal speed. Click again and the speed decreases. The two text-to-speech versions alternate.I've…

  • Future YotaPhone handsets will have Sailfish OS instead of Android

    Stephen Hall
    4 Jul 2015 | 7:26 am
    Yota, the Russian company behind the dual-screened YotaPhone, has reportedly decided (via Yahoo News) to no longer pack Google’s Android on its future handsets. Instead, the phone maker will be going with Jolla’s Sailfish, a spin-off of Nokia’s former MeeGo Linux distribution. Sailfish, which was built by many of the same engineers that worked on MeeGo, reportedly beat out Samsung’s Tizen in Yota’s search for an Android alternative… It’s not yet clear whether or not this decision will also mean that the currently-available YotaPhone 2 will also be…
