Next time when you see .xxx URL ending don’t be astonished as ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) on Friday approved .xxx TLD for websites containing adult oriented content. This TLD will be embraced by the websites who have legitimate sexual content and want to show it off. Though this TLD is not going to be mandatory for all adult sites and following this TLD has been kept voluntary for adult sites.
ICANN has given its verdict in favor of ICM registry, ending decade long conflict over the matter. Company CEO Stuart Lawley has planned to charge $ 60 per year for the domain registration and hopes a sale of 50000 domains having .xxx TLD. On this occasion he expressed :
‘’This was always going to be a very lucrative arrangement.’
This decision has provoked a heated debate among all persons connected with internet in any way. Supporters of Morality argue that it is a big step towards legitimization of sex on the internet while some persons even representatives from adult sites register their worries as it may force to ghettoize the adult internet community. Diane Duke, executive director of the adult entertainment industry’s Free Speech Coalition considers the decision entirely inappropriate and disregarding the feelings adult internet community.
We,the CallingAllGeeks, being extremely optimistic can say that perhaps this is a good turn and now it will be easier to block the adult material containing websites by the blocking of .xxx TLD. How good it will be good to see seeing it a monetary feature to have .xxx domain for all porn and adult website?
Specially for MMS scandal websites like debonairblog.com, fsiblog.com, xnxx.com which are some of the popular adult website taking .xxx domain extension and when all firewall blocking access of .xxx domain. This will ensure that our young crowd won’t get exposed to adult stuff.
Do let us know your opinion on if all adult websites should switch to .xxx domain extension, so that all campus (School & collages), can block porn websites without any hassle?

Adobe Flash is required to view flash content such as videos and other types of media on a mobile phone’s web browser. On your desktop, most browsers come pre-installed with Flash player and if any new update is out the same will be downloaded and installed accordingly. The last version of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 did not allow content to be played on most Android devices or tablets running on Honeycomb 3.0.
Recently after the much success of the Android Tablet OS, the Honeycomb, Adobe decided to make it more flash friendly with the release of a new version of the Flash Player. Version 10.2, which was released on the 18th, is still in a beta stage for Honeycomb, but if you’re running Android Froyo and above on your phone then you can use this in it’s final stage.
What’s new in Adobe Flash Player 10.2:
- You can enjoy watching the same web content that you view on your desktop on your Android mobile device, high quality videos, games and applications
- Tablet optimized, works best with Honeycomb 3.0.1, full web browsing on your Android Honeycomb tablet
- You won’t come across all those web-pages that say ‘ Cannot Play Flash Content’ anymore, version 10.2 takes care of all that.
You can download Adobe Flash Player 10.2 from your Android phone/tablet via the Android Market for Free. Requires Android OS 2.2 and above for mobile and 3.0 and above for tablets. You can also download it directly by scanning the QR Code below.
Requires a QR reader app on your Android device.
I spend a lot of time on YouTube. The site has countless entertaining videos that I thoroughly enjoy. But the default video player size is simply too small for me. I always end up clicking on the “Full Screen” button in the player, just to get a larger view. That extra click has always been annoyance to me.
But thanks to a great new tool I discovered, I am now freed from that extra click. The tool I mention is called Smart Video Enlarger for YT.
Smart Video Enlarger for YT is a browser extension for Google Chrome that plays YouTube video in the entire browser. Whenever you play a YouTube video in Chrome, the video is played while being expanded to the entire browser – definitely a larger view than the default one.
By scrolling your mouse wheel downwards, you can reduce the size of the video and read YouTube comments, view likes, number of views, and all the other stuff on the video’s page apart from the video itself. But while in YouTube you had to scroll down to a point where the video became invisible, this extension displays the video and non-video elements at the same time – a convenience indeed.
This brilliant extension has certainly made my YouTube experience better as I am sure it will yours.
