Google Apps for my domain: hameedkhan.net

May 21, 2007

Finally today I was able to try this new exciting Google Apps. I must say that this is a service of its kind. If you own a domain name then it is totally free for you. Just you have to prove your domain owner ship and bingo! You will have your own Gmail and Google Talk and if that is not enough for you then You can also host your pages on Google’s server as well as you will also get Google Calendar and Google Docs and Spreadsheet for your domain.

If you don’t have your own domain, don’t worry about it google also offers you a domain name for just $10. So hurry up go for it, I already did it today. The domain hameedkhan.net is now have all service on Google Apps.

The Hameed Khan‘s web page on Google Apps can be accessed at http://www.hameedkhan.net, the start page on Google Apps for Hameed Khan is available at http://start.hameedkhan.net. Hameed Khan‘s Gmail like mail is available at: http://mail.hameedkhan.net, in the same way you can also access Hameed Khan’s calendar at http://calendar.hameedkhan.net and Hameed Khan‘s Doc and Spreadsheet at http://docs.hameedkhan.net.

Give them a try, you can also have them and that all is for free :). If you belong to that group of people who thinks that free stuff lacks quality then Google also have a paid version for you ;). Aren’t they smart enough that they already have a version for you. The paid version is little bit expensive but its free trial is available for May 31st, 2007.

Paid version is Premier edition and it costs you around $50/user account/year. And you know what you can create 100 accounts in the free version. Every account will have their own 2GB mail space. The free (Standard Version) of Google Apps is enough for me. Don’t waste your time and go give it a try. If you want to test features I can give you account on my Google Apps for my domain.

Happy Googling!

You have 11 more days to migrate to Azaad Source…

May 19, 2007

Open Source…You have 11 more days to migrate to Azaad Source (Open Source) software, because the grace period given by BSA is about to expire on 30th May, 2007. So, either buy the licenses or migrate to Open Source alternatives before you are busted by BSA. The choice is yours but as an Open Source Advocate following are the benefits if you go for Open source alternatives.

Benefits:
1. You don’t have to pay heavy licensing fees like you do for closed Source software.
2. You get all required software (Office Suite, Web Development Tools, Graphics Tools, Compilers, IDEs) under one license.
3. You get nice 3d effects which are not even possible in Windows Vista :P.
4. You can run all latest stable and reliable open source softwares on your old hardware. (No need to buy new hardware for every new OS Microsoft releases).
5. You get a great support from the whole Linux community in Pakistan.
9. You don’t have to make any international calls for support.
10. You don’t have to have any Anti Virus software for every workstation in your organization.

And the last but the important one, there is no BSA for Open Source softwares. So, make your decision today and migrate to Azaad Source (Open Source). Use Linux or any other Open Source Operating System, utilize your resources more efficiently.

The name of iTechnology has been changed to Azaad Source with the new domain azaadsource.com. You can access the blog on the new domain (azaadsource.com) as well as on the old domain (itechnology.wordpress.com).

Ann: Name Change

May 7, 2007

Finally I have decided to change the name of iTechnology. This happened so fast and I was so busy during last week that I could not ask here on iTechnology about name suggestions. But a very good person and a new friend (Brian Deacon) has suggested AzaadSource and he have registered the appropriate domain for it too.

The new name will be applied as soon as I will get some time out. If you want to suggest any new domain or something you are welcome.
