Shopwiki - A useful shopping tool is a pretty interesting place to shop online, unlike conventional shopping sites which will only show you store that have paid for placement, it offers more by showing everything for sale on the web. It works just like Google, except that it for the purpose of shopping and allows shoppers to look for everything for sale on the web.

With a simple search text of let's say a xbox 360, displays all relevant searches and upon clicking the search result that I was looking for I was pleasantly presented with information such as the pros and cons of getting it. There was also a brief history writeup on it, overall I think it is pretty useful tool.

Virtual Villagers: The Secret City

Virtual Villagers: The Secret City is the third sequel of the saga from Last Day of Work. The game features some new twists taking you to a new place and telling you a new story but it still has its old well-known play mechanics.

Embark on a new journey with a group of villagers in search of a new part of the island to populate. Land on the hidden shores of the northern side of Isola and explore what was once a secret city. Who lived here before? Where have they gone? What is the secret of Isola?

If you're one of those people who likes to play games that are moderately challenging and yet not
too tiring, you should try this game out. Basically it's a game in real-time where you grow your little villagers to re-populate the city ruins of Isola. And while you're at it, you have to solve puzzles and find new sources for your villagers to grow and survive. You'll also be able to make a variety of unique potions from hidden herbs.

The interesting thing is that if you leave them for some time, you'll find them working upon your returning as this is after all a real-time game which goes on even if you off your computer. But if it's too long then you are risking to find them all dead from starvation and you might have to either start all over again. In my opinion, it can be addictive.

Signing up for PayPerPost

Looking around blogs, the PayPerPost(PPP) badges seem to be quite prominent and so out of curiosity I decided to see what it was all about. I signed up, but I wasn't approved instantly. After some effort I finally managed to get accepted.

PayPerPost, better known as PPP is a new self-service marketplace for bloggers to blog about things that they love and get paid for it, and for advertisers to advertise their product/service/ website reviewed. In PayPerPost, publishers(bloggers) get to see the list of advertisers' requests, and would be able to choose which opportunity to write on, provided they are eligible for it. Apparently the higher the pagerank of your blog, the more opportunities one would have.

To be eligible to sign up, new blogs have to be at least 90 days old with at least a minimum of 20 posts. The best part is that there is no quota needs to be fulfilled. Once your blog is approved, you can start looking out for opportunities to write and be paid via Paypal. It's really that easy.
