Submitted by mujahidsymbios
mujahidsymbios (3998553) writes "The use of smart phones has now become limitless. Even in Pakistan people are frequently switching to smart phones, not because we are getting wealthier but because there are brands which are offering smart phones at affordable prices. In this world of peaking tech would you prefer to get yourself burnt in scorching rays of sun for the sake of buying a “SMART” phone or would you be “SMART” enough to buy it from the Largest Online Shopping website of Pakistan, Symbios.pk ? We have every brand you can possibly think of Samsung, Apple, Nokia, HTC, Huawei, Q mobile and more. In the end the choice is yours!"

The Borobudur sanctuary is one of the jawels of the world cultural heritage. A vast Mahayana Budhhist monument in the form of a pyramid-shaped mandala, it was built in the heart Java arround 800 AD by the Sailendra dynasty and abandoned shortly after completion. It covers an area of almost one and half hectares, with a central dome almost 35 meters above the base. It was built in three tiers: a pyramidal base with five concentric square terraces, then three circuler platforms of 72 openwork stupas and, at the top, a monumental stupa. The walss and balustrades are decorated with 1.400 bas-reliefs and 432 statues of Buddha. (source: UNESCO)"

+ - 102 How to Publish Your Book on Amazon for S99

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "A long time ago, on a desktop far, far away...

That has not dreamed of not only creating their very own guide, but seeing it in publications on Amazon.com, having a copy for their bookshelf, getting 'five copies for my mother'?

Well, now you can do-it for a $99 fee and some cybernetic elbow grease. These pages will show you how I did it, and chances are you can perform it too. I have been reading for many years about Print On Demand, the awesome new techology where you place in PDF files on one end (One for the address, one for the interiors) and a beautiful, perfect-bound, bookstore-quality book arrives another. I've also seen the technology in motion at an document imaging tradeshow (that is my career, by-the way.)

I have known other people who have used Print On Demand (POD) as a way to self-publish, including my own personal father. My problem with that is I have no room in my garage for books, I don't need to get involved in the act of attempting to sell and delivery books, handling results, etc.

Suddenly, while Googling something this morning, I came across some fantastic Goo. Amazon, the online bookstore, has consumed a POD writer named BookSurge, which makes it another Amazon section. Now I could upload it to Amazon/BookSurge, simply take my book project, pay a fee, and VOILA! my book is o-n Amazon for everybody to get. It delivers within 48 hours, BookSurge pays a 25% royalty to me within 60 days, I can also get five copies for my mother in a discount!

I sent BookSurge and was assigned an account manager, who I will call Joseph (because his name is Joseph). I asked about the details of publishing a book. For $599 I could have the hand-holding, mail us your manuscript version of the writing, or if I was bold, brave, and could format my own PDFs, for $99 I could utilize the Author's Express system to upload my book projects.

$99 looked just like the way to go, because my book design project was made to be the precursor of many more titles.

I ran throughout the site, getting example PDFs, submission guidelines, and whatever else I may find. Your website recomends using Adobe -something or another- for text formating, and Adobe Acrobat 6 (not 7!) for PDF creation.

I decided from the git-go that Microsoft Word and PDF Factory Pro will have to work for me, since that is what I had on my desktop, and I don't need to spend months studying another desktop publishing software, though I'm sure it is an excellent one.

Besides, I was already considering writing these pages, and I wanted to come back up with an activity most everyone will be comfortable with. Be taught more on an affiliated paper by browsing to www.amazon.com/glass files.

The sole shortcut I took is that my cover is plain-text, with no images on it. I decided my first book will probably offer mainly if not entirely o-n Amazon, and a fairly cover is not that impor-tant there. Regardless, I could always return and improve my version (The excess fee for resubmitting both the interior or the address is $50, once the book is published.)

Sample documents and an entire step by step explanation of how I arranged and posted my three books (so far!) is at www.actasif.com/bookproject."

+ - 180 Ordnance Survey releases mapping tool->

Submitted by rHBa
rHBa (976986) writes "The BBC reports that the UK mapping organisation Ordnance Survey has added 4 new products to its open data portfolio: OS Local, Names, Rivers and Roads. Perhaps the most interesting of the free data sets is OS Local which provides a base map to identify ‘hotspots’ such as property pricing, insurance risk, and crime.

The OS are not creating a new Google Maps-style service of their own but rather are providing their data for use by other third-party apps and online tools. They expect developers and designers to use the data to enhance their own products and improve the information people can access via the web.

What uses would you put this sort of data to if it were available in an easily parsable format for your area?"
