Productivity has been a problem for everyone. We all want to stay focused and more productive but quite often we end up wasting our time on different things and become less productive. The main source of this problem is Internet, at least for most of the people. Particularly social networking, entertainment, etc sites take our time without making us realize that we are spending our time there. There are some cool plugins to help us to be productive by different means. After started using them I have become more productive than I was. They helped me to track the time I spent on different websites, strictly limit the time I spend on a particular website, schedule my tasks and finish them in a timely manner without being distracted,etc.

Twitter has made the following video demo for its new version.
uploaded.to not available in USA now – Just another file sharing website uploaded.to has blocked its access from USA after MegaUpload has been shutdown by the US. It’s today another file sharing website FileSonic has disabled file sharing option for the entire world. What is going on with all file sharing websites? Obviously they are acting fast to protect their business and protect them from being sued and arrested. The steps taken by the USA department of justice does not sound good because such crack downs will still allow the people who live outside USA to continue pirating while reducing the piracy rate in the USA. But that’s enough for the Industries who are backing up these incidents since reducing piracy in USA will stop their 90% of their ‘loss’ since that is where most of the consumers who can really pay and buy live. Long life “the land of free”
Filesonic disables file sharing - After the crack down of Megaupload, today another big file sharing site Filesonic has disabled the sharing of files. The site now only allows the users to upload and download their own files that they uploaded. Obviously the File sharing sites have started to act fast before they face problem from US department of justice. It’s the entertainment industry that faces big challenges from those file sharing sites and it is not too long ago that it tried to get the notorious Stop Online Privacy Act passed. Fortunately it was withdrawn after the massive opposition from all giant Internet companies. The crack down of file sharing sites clearly meets some parts of the dropped bill SOPA. What does it speak? Don’t be surprised if sharing sites such as Rapidshare, Hotfile and even DropBox disappear in one night.
What is SOPA and PIPA? What are the real problems of SOPA and PIPA? There are many many sources to give this answer but this video explains it way better than most of the SOPA videos around and comes right to the point without . Most of the videos and articles we see around are made merely as an anti SOPA propaganda and that makes it difficult for many people to get the right idea about SOPA. I was able to see this problem when my non-business friends sharing links about SOPA with their comments about it. Most of them did not seem to be having the right idea and when I did a little research I found that’s not only them but also most of people who are not much into the Internet and web technology business. I don’t want to give my own explanation anout SOPA because I can’t say it better than than this video.
