Nelson Online Webcam links – UPDATED

6th November 2009

Thanks to the guys at Takebreak you can now check out 4 different webcams around the Nelson area, directly from the links in the left column at the top of this page.

The four are located at;

1] Waterfront cafe – here – hi-res imagery available.

2] Princes Drive – here.

3] Bishopdale – here.

4] Kaiteriteri Beach – here – hi-res imagery available.

The “here” links above will re-direct to the EarthURL site I talked about a few posts back. You need to ensure that the Google Earth plug-in is installed for it to correctly work. Keep in mind the locations are approximate only and as no exact destination icon appears, its just to give you a general idea.

If you’d like to get your own HD webcam and a setup that uploads a high resolution image to the internet, then contact them here, or view their just launched new site here.

Example – if you are marketing that million dollar home with seaviews and fabulous sunsets / sunrises why not show all the world what possible views are there?

You’ll be pleased to know its now easier than ever to have an up to date image of Nelson as your windows background, and a high resolution one at that.

Just need to follow a couple of extra steps to do so……

Step one is obviously to click on the picture which will take you to Takebreaks Webcam page.

Then click on the spot arrowed above – “Enlarge Nelson Webcam image.”

Step two – after clicking that “enlarge” above you will indeed be directed to an enlarged image.

On that enlarged image you’ll notice in the bottom left hand side corner if you look closely, the words indicated above, click them. That way you will now get a monster 1600 x 1200 res image suitable for saving and using as your windows desktop. Depending on your hardware combination, be aware in some cases you may have to click the image again to have it display at its full maximum resolution.

Google Dashboard – your peak into your past

6th November 2009

When I say peak into the past, I do mean specifically your past.

Google has announced today Google Dashboard and, well …….. I’ll let them explain;

Today, we are excited to announce the launch of Google Dashboard. Have you ever wondered what data is stored with your Google Account? The Google Dashboard offers a simple view into the data associated with your account — easily and concisely in one location.

Sure to please privacy advocates, the new Dashboard allows what Google call “greater transparency and control over their (your) own data.” You’ll note a common theme in recent times for Real Estate is the introduction of more “transparency” too.

The new Dashboard will cover Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Web History, Orkut, YouTube, Picasa, Talk, Reader, Alerts, Latitude and more are coming it would seem. If you click on the above link there’s a video there explaining it more.

Amongst other things, you can delete items that you no longer want Google to track. Overall I’d say a great pre-emptive by the search giant.
