Yes, the time has come. I have been granted passage into the world of paid Internet journalism. I will be writing for a tech news site called Neowin.net.

Neowin is a site dedicated to anything and everything technology. Being as I am an avid follower of that very world, I shall be assisting them on their quest of world news domination, slowly making my way into to minds of each and every soul on the Interwebs.

I implore you all to follow Neowin on a regular basis. They are a great source for tech news and have a great reputation throughout the online wold.

I also would like to remind you all to follow me via my Twitter account (possible name change soon), as well as on AndroidGuys.com. Links to both are available on the right hand side of the site.

Again... Thank you so much for your continued support. I am now an Androidian Neowinian. Wow, I wonder what's next.

I realize that over the course of the day, I come across a lot of great stuff that people enjoy reading about and watching. Hence, the reason I started The Daily Harangue in the first place.

So, in order to keep the world happy, I think that, for now, I will continue posting links to cool stuff via my Twitter page. This way, I don't have to worry about the whole lengthy process of writing to my site, but everyone can still get updates from me of what the latest happenings are.

Here's a link to my Twitter page... http://twitter.com/dailyharangue

You can follow it via Twitter, RSS feed, or just by visiting the site each day. I think that it's a good compromise for now. We'll see what happens.

Oh, and the video below inspired the above... I really, honestly, cannot believe this couple did this at the freakin' altar!!

Change

Unlike Obama's understanding of the word, this change will actually benefit someone in the world.

Until further notice, I will not be haranguing. I may start up again in the near future, but right now, I'm in the process of exploring other options that require a lot of my attention.

No, this isn't the good part.

The good part is that I may be writing for another very, very popular tech news website. I can't give details yet, but once I learn more about the opportunity and am actually offered a position, I will let you all know about it so you can follow me.

Q:
"Why are you doing this? I can't live without The Daily Harangue!"

A:
I feel bad. I really do. I sincerely apologize. The whole purpose of this site was to educate people with current tech news and eventually make a little money doing it. Since I began this site, my AdSense account (which is how I was going to make money) was canceled for some unknown reason and Google banned me for life (not kiddin'). Therefore, I've been pushed to look at other options.

As you all know, I began branching out my wisdom to another website called AndroidGuys. Writing for them has been an awesome experience and I plan to continue writing for them for as long as my fingers allow. Now, another opportunity has opened its doors to me. This opportunity is for a site that pays per post, and popularity of the post. The site gets over 1.5 million visits a month and is ranked in the top 3,000 sites in the world for traffic! That's pretty insane.

This isn't a sure thing yet, as they want to test out my skills before I get the official green light. It's for this reason that I need to step aside from Haranguing (at least, for now). I need to really focus my attention on impressing this site. Doing paid writing for popular tech news sites is somewhat of a dream of mine... Not like my dream of ruling the entire world, but pretty close.

I hope that you all understand and that you will continue to check back here for updates regarding my endeavors. I will fill you in as things happen and I'd love your continued support on whichever sites I begin writing for.

Thank you so much for helping me and my goals of Interwebs stardom. I am truly grateful.

Twitgether - A Gmail Gadget

I'm not sure if any of you use Twitter, but if you do, this may be a great little tool for you.

You see, Gmail gives you the ability to add your own gadgets. Today, I came across a neat lil' one for Twitter. It gives me a little gadget on the left side of my Inbox, allowing me to send tweets. If I click the box, it loads, like an email, a full Twitter interface that I can navigate through and manage stuff. I must say, it's pretty nifty and will definitely come in handy.

If you already have Twitter and use Gmail, you can try out the gadget by following the instructions at this link... Lifehacker - From the Tips Box

This video is unbelievable. If you've ever played Halo, you'll understand why.

It's a trailer for a 25 minute Halo movie made by fans using legos. It's perty darn cool if you ask me.

The movie is appropriately called, Battle of the Brick: Built for Combat.
