How many users have made right decision? Cheap viagra prices? Sixty-three percent, 74%, and 82% of the patients on 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg of our medications, respectively, reported an improvement in their health.

Getting a job can be tough. In the first of the career seminars,
John Clegg will provide some information on how to get a great ICT job and
kick start your career. John will tell you what the hottest companies like
Trade Me, Sidhe, Weta and a host of start ups are acutally looking for in a
new graduate. He’ll also offer advice on how to get a job, where to look,
who can help you and some tips on how to impress.

Should be interesting, I’m trying to graduate my presentation style to Presentation Zen style. (Looking for good images is time consuming!)

iPhone pricing…

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

The net is ablaze with all the iPhone pricing rip off.(Although that haven’t stopped some from queuing up already)

My 2c on the whole pricing thing is Vodafone have set the prices so that they don’t marginalise the rest of their smart phone line up.

Superb product and the pharmacy service is superb every order !!! Canadian pharmacy? Canadian drugs are only shipped from our affiliated Canadian dispensary.

If you sell a iPhone 3Gfor $500 or $199, then why would you buy a Nokia N95 at $1399 ?

Steve Jobs set the pricing in US so that iPhone would blow away the competition. The pricing here doesn’t reflect that :-(

Unfortunately, NZ’s probably not big enough to invoke Apple pulling the iPhone from the Canadian marketplace.

New suburb update

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

We’ve just completed an update to the underlying data on ZoomIn. We’ve just switched to a new suburb set on ZoomIn base onto the “New Zealand Fire Service” (NZFS) suburb set.

I’m very happy with the service and the quality and i recommend your website to my friends whenever i get the chance. Cialis online pharmacy! If you have a good relationship with your pharmacist, let him know your concerns about drug costs.


Its about accuracy, we want to provide the most up to date map service around. The NZFS suburb set is being used by all of New Zealand emergency services ie. Police, Ambulance and Fire Service. This update will better represent the way that you think and use addresses in your neighbourhood. The update adds another 1500 suburbs to ZoomIn. We’ve now got a total of 2986 suburbs in our address database.

We’ve completely rebuilt our address system from scratch, which gives us a chance to get all of the address cobwebs out of the system.

Changes to ZoomIn urls

The new address data means changes to the ZoomIn URL’s. Don’t worry, all of the old URL’s will still work, they’ll automatically redirect to the new address url.

Here are some examples:



New map imagery out on ZoomIn

Monday, July 7th, 2008

We’ve just completed the update to the map imagery on ZoomIn. It’s now live on ZoomIn maps API. (There’s no need to change any code, its an seemless update)

We’re in the process of completing the update to the addressing backend and geocoders.

Canadian Pharmacy is another fine company at the shop that has a long time history of providing our bodies with the supplements we need. Buy cialis online. You should be able to talk with a human being, including a licensed pharmacist, to answer questions about your prescription.
