Importance of Rakeback

Now why is rakeback important ? As the sites take the rake automatically most of the players do not know that they are charged for the game played by them. This results in the players not only beating their counterparts in the game, but also beat the rake too. If a player does not win rake then it means that he has not won at all. The fact is that nearly 50% of the players are in this category. Winning a good amount of rakeback every month is like receiving a bonus. Thus rakeback is important to the players.

Mysterious Stranger’ still hogs the blogs

OK, Mark Twain’s “mysterious stranger” was actually Satan’s nephew, and we’re certainly not deriding the devilish Steve Jobs or his wonderful company — but the theme of unwanted intrusion is apt.

That is, if you consider the perspective of incumbent handset vendors and all network operators not currently offering the iPhone. Intrusion, wake-up call, disruptive force, reality-distortion field — call it what you will, the iPhone show has been intriguing enough to drive a lot of industry conversations for more than a year.

For a few million well-heeled consumers and AT&T Mobility, the iPhone has delivered a welcome shift to ease-of-use and fun over the industry’s typical, oft-maddening user interfaces based on endless menus, ambiguous hard keys and tiny, crowded screens.

By most accounts Apple Inc. has delivered an engaging, fun UI that is thus far unmatched by rivals (though the latter are busy, more below). The iPhone sells legitimately in six global markets, though the latest two — Ireland and Austria, announced a month ago — were underwhelming. Further market rollouts clearly are expected.More Details>>

What is Coming May 6th from HTC? gPhone?

Speculations are running rampant all over the blogosphere this week about invitations to an HTC Event in London on May 6th… “Witness the next wave of HTC Innovation” What else could it mean really? It’s got to be their version of the Google Android thingy, right? That sure seems to be what most are thinking at least. Slash Phone thinks so too…More Details>>

Apple - Means Innovation

Nokia is working on what some observers are calling an iPhone killer. Code-named "Tube," Nokia discussed the device at the Evans Data Developer Relations Conference this week. The new touchscreen handset could debut by the end of the year.
According to Avi Greengart, a wireless analyst at Current Analysis, Nokia has been hinting at this device for months. He watched a video about a Nokia touchscreen phone at a December conference.
"Nokia is quick to tell you it is already well versed in using touchscreens and creating touchscreen devices," Greengart said. "In fact, its Internet tablet even has a full Internet browser with Flash support."
Java Built In
The Tube will have Java built in as a standard, which would give it at least one competitive advantage over Apple's current iPhone, according to Tom Libretto, vice president of Forum Nokia. Libretto also told the conference that the Tube will be able to upload photos to the Web, which would mean built-in Wi-Fi or HSDPA connectivity. The tube may also include support for the DVB-H mobile -TV standard for Europe and mobile video. More Details>>

Ada company develops wireless charging systems

ADA -- Imagine this: You place your cell phone, iPod and your power drill on your kitchen counter, come back an hour later and your devices are charged.
All this is done without digging up cords that need to be attached to the devices or the risk that your toddler electrocutes himself when he crawls up on the counter.
This is wireless power.
And it's the vision behind eCoupled Technology, a product developed by Alticor Inc.'s little known subsidiary, Fulton Innovations.
While few have heard of Alticor's patented innovation, eCoupled will make its debut later this year when several major manufacturers are expected to build it into everyday re-chargeable products such as laptop computers and cell phones.
Even office furniture is expected to incorporate the re-charging functions as more people own eCoupled compatible gadgets.
Fulton is a sort-of skunkworks born out of research for Amway's eSpring water filtration system.
How it worksDevices equipped with eCoupled technology -- such common products as a cordless drill, blender, cell phone or laptop -- draw power through a process called inductive coupling.
The natural magnetic field of an electrical current is used to transfer power from one coil to another nearby but unattached. This allows the device to be recharged without a traditional cord or metal-on-metal contact.
eSpring uses the technology to power a bacteria-killing light inside the filter system without the need for the bulb to be connected by a cord or metal-on-metal contact.
The filter went on to become a hit product for Amway, particularly in markets where tap water isn't always safe to drink.More Details>>

JSTL and Expression Language

JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) is a custom tags collection that executes common functionalities in web applications, including iteration and selection, data formatting, XML manipulation and database access. JSTL allows JSP developers to focus on development specific necessities, instead of reinventing the wheel.

JSTL is composed of:

  • An expression language.
  • Standard actions libraries.
  • Validators (2 validators).

What is Expression Language (EL)?

Expression Language is a simple language based on ECMAScript (also known as JavaScript) and XPath. It provides expressions and identifiers and type conversion.

Expression Language makes easier the access to implicit objects, such as request / response servlet, scope variables and stored objects on JSP scope (page, request, session and application). EL reduces drastically the need of using JSP expressions and scriptlets, increasing web applications maintainability and extensibility.


EL expressions are invoked with this syntax: ${expression}. Expressions consist of:

  • Identifiers.
  • Operators.
