My New Tech Site: GeekOn.In
Earlier this week, I launched a new tech website called GeekOn.In. It's a blog for all kinds of geeks, written by geeks. We already have a team of three authors and we're looking to expand, so if you are interested in writing for the blog, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as I can. So go ahead, and Geek on in.
For a very long time, if you wanted to use a word processor, you would go to the store and buy a copy of Microsoft Office, or AppleWorks. These things aren't cheap. Most of the time, they can cost over $100! But how does free sound? Most of the time, free is good, so if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a word processor and all of the stuff it comes with, why not try out Google Docs or Microsoft SkyDrive Office?

I use Google Sites because there's a lot you can't do with Blogger, and vice versa. Why doesn't Google just combine these two services? Sure, they have different targeted users, where Blogger is more for a general website, and Google Sites is for businesses or intranets. At the same time, just put Blogger functionality inside Google Sites, and make it an option to enable. Google Sites is really powerful, so …
In no particular order:Billy Joel's library spans three decades, so there's plenty of materialEven if there wasn't plenty of material to work with, Margaritaville and Garth Brook's channel regularly play other artist's musicHe doesn't take any shit from anybodyInitially I thought maybe it would've been too expensive to have a whole channel for him, but if SiriusXM can afford The Beatles to have their own channel, then by golly, Billy Joel should be fineIt would make me happyHeck, even if they combined it with Elton John, I'd be happy, maybe happier
So, SiriusXM, I've given many good reasons for Billy Joel to get his channel put back permanently. Your move!
