This release is a marked improvement of almost all parts of KOffice compared to 2.0. Version 2.0 was labeled a “platform release”, which was meant as a first preview of the framework and new UI paradigm. In version 2.1, most applications and components have improved significantly but should still only be used by early adopters and probably not as the primary worktool. Koffice 2.1.0 is currently available on our premium server and shipping to the public servers shortly.

10 Reasons Email Isn't Going Away Anytime Soon
1. People still send hand-written letters via snail mail, even though they could instead make a phone call, send an email, text message, or status update.
2. Nearly all sites on the web that require registration require an email address. Some are starting to integrate social media into this process (through things like Facebook Connect), but that is still a very small fraction, and they typically still allow for email information as well.
3. Email notifies you of updates from all social networks you are a part of (provided your settings are set up that way).
4. We haven't seen any evidence yet that Google Wave really is the next big thing and will catch on on a large scale.
5. Email is universal, and social networks are not. Nearly everybody on the web (while there are no doubt some exceptions) has an email address. Many places of employment give employees email addresses when they begin working there. Meanwhile, a great deal of them are banning workers from even accessing social networks.
6. There are plenty of people who have no interest in joining social networks. Frequent news stories about security, privacy, and reputation issues do not help convince them.
7. Email is still improving. It hasn't screeched to a halt with the rise of social media. There is still innovation going on, and integration with social media. Look at how Google is constantly adding new features to Gmail. Look at the new Yahoo Mail.
8. Even social networks themselves recognize the importance of email. Never mind that they update users about community-driven happenings via email. MySpace (still one of the biggest social networks) even launched its own email service recently.
9. More social media use means more email use. Look at these recent findings from Nielsen. The people consuming the largest amount of social media are also the people consuming the largest amount of email.
10. As far as marketing is concerned, email is doing pretty well, as many companies continue to struggle to find the right social media strategy to suit their needs.

WASHINGTON – Google apologized Thursday for a Gmail outage which left some users of the free Web-based email service cut off for the second time in a month.
The Internet giant announced at 10:29 am (1429 GMT) that an unspecified problem was preventing a "small subset of users" from accessing their Gmail accounts.
About an hour later, the Internet giant said service had been restored for some users and at 12:58 pm (1658 GMT) it said the problem had been resolved.
"We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support," Google said in a message on its App Status Dashboard, a site which monitors the performance of its online services.
The disruption came just over three weeks after an outage which left millions of users without Gmail for more than an hour and a half.
Google blamed server maintenance for the September 1 Gmail outage and apologized for the disruption, which it called a "Big Deal."
Google also suffered technical problems in May, leaving millions of people unable to use popular services such as its main search page, as well as Gmail and Google News.
Google also experienced a breakdown of Gmail, which has tens of millions of users, in February which lasted a few hours.
The failures, while rare, are seen by some industry analysts as a setback to the Mountain View, California-based Google's efforts to promote Gmail and other Web-based services to businesses.

As CEBUNEXT, the exhibition embodies the drive to create new designs with exceptional quality. It harnesses and consolidates the collective strength of the Philippine furniture industry, while highlighting Cebu as the design capital of Southeast Asia.
Cebu has a rich history in furniture making. So rich that is is even the key source for trends that are followed worldwide, such as the popularity of rattan and buri in the 60s and 70s respectively, stonecraft in the 80's, cane & iron furnishings in the 90's and the abaca trend of early 2000. CEBUNEXT continues this leading legacy by setting its sights forward to the furniture trends of the coming decade--

Micro-blogging service Twitter and social networking site Facebook have been severely disrupted by hackers.
Twitter was taken offline for more than two hours whilst Facebook's service was "degraded", according to the firms.
The popular sites were subject to so-called denial-of-service attacks on Thursday, the companies believe.
Denial-of-service (DOS) attacks take various forms but often involve a company's servers being flooded with data in an effort to disable them.
"Attacks such as this are malicious efforts orchestrated to disrupt and make unavailable services such as online banks, credit card payment gateways, and in this case, Twitter for intended customers or users," said Twitter co-founder Biz Stone on the company's blog.
The service was restored shortly after the blog post, but the companies have had to continue to fend off the attack.
Facebook said its service was reduced but not taken offline.
"No user data was at risk and we have restored full access to the site for most users," spokeswoman Brandee Barker told the AFP news agency.
"We're continuing to monitor the situation to ensure that users have the fast and reliable experience they've come to expect from Facebook."

As I was rushing downwards I had the presence of mind to use both hands to push against the ground so that it would somehow break the momentum of my fall, but it was kind of a second late because I found out that both my feet were already soaked on dirty, smelly, murky water. I immediately pulled myself out of that pit and head straight to the closest source of running water around and washed my sneakers and some portions of my pants. I got some minor bruises on my hands and legs and so I asked my colleague if I could go home for a while to change my clothes and be back after lunch.
It’s definitely the most embarrassing moment of my life. Being in a situation where I least expected the most would happen to me made me feel so uncomfortable, I felt all of a sudden all eyes were on me and I didn’t know what to do. “What’s this?” I asked myself, the feeling of your feet being soaked deep on the dirt of people was so humiliating, I will not forget the horrifying smell my socks bore that time.
But somehow that experience made me remember one important lesson in my life… I was reminded of a person who shared the same experience as I did, only it was a hundred folds worst than what I experienced. My embarrassment when I fell on that pit was no match for how degrading people have treated Him, the humiliation I got was not even close to what he had when his robe was being torn apart by the roman soldiers and even before he was being nailed on a log he suffered wounds, cuts and lacerations so deep he could hardly walk. I was reminded how God loved me what the Son had to go through because of that love.
Is 54:10 God assured his people that even if the mountains be shaken and the hills being removed, never will His unfailing love depart from us.
Lam 3: 32
God is love and since He lives eternally, so is His love will endure forever.

I myself have been using its services and I too have wondered like most "What's twitter for?", but the more I follow people with it, the more I realize the power and potential it has to gather fresh, up-to-date info everywhere!
The rudiments are simple, simply register an account for free search topic that interest you and you'd be given a list of people sharing the same, then all you have to do is follow those people and immediately their 'twits' will be displayed on your on web page in twitter!
Imagine the immense amount of thoughts, info, links, reviews etc. you'd be receiving DAILY by simply following people!
It gives more excitement to the old familiar question: "What are you doing?"
This is indeed a remarkable tool for internet freaks like me; who thirsts for fresh info daily!

Certainly, what transpired on the show have brought up a lot of questions; will this industry thrive? I recalled attending one of the seminars about surviving in these trying times... and looking back from that point up to present have made me see the whole picture, the whole dreadful picture...
My hope still stands that our industry, something we Filipinos can take pride of will steadfastly trek this rough terrains.
