Google’s shares breach $600. Google went public in way back in 2004 costing $85 a share.

A change in Adsense program policies for Adsense for Mobile (thanks Jensense). The mobile version of Self Made Minds and Coolest Gadgets are doing over 2,000 page views a day between them which is better than I was expecting, minimal income off them though so one for the future I hope.

If you’ve never played Desktop Tower Defence before be prepared to have a very unproductive day, it takes a little getting into to but once you’re addicted that is it. We also created SelfMadeMinds group so when you submit your score we can compare, is Juergen of Criticker up to the challenge? There’s a nice history of how the game came about and I remember reading somewhere that the creator is making close to 6 figures annually from ad revenue.

  1. Google is way ahead there. Do you do well with Yahoo traffic or MSN? Yahoo beats MSN for me… but both are way behind what google sends.

    I counted for several of those mobile impressions 🙂 It’s cool being able to browse quickly while on the move.

    DTD… Cool game. I started playing that one a bit ago and agree that it’s totally addictive. Our IT team here in the UK and US were hooked for a few days.

  2. And I was just getting over my addiction to DTD! How do you join the SMM group?

  3. Ah yeah, I got it, and #1 for now 🙂

  4. Sweet, thanks for the link to the templates! I really like the ‘bright side of life’ one, that could be used in a few different industries!

  5. Yep, I like the bright side of life template too. And I’ve been playing that Desktop Tower Defense game but I still prefer playing it on Warcraft 3.

    PLUS, I don’t want to waste my day, lol.

  6. Well I thought I did really well getting 1278…. then I saw all your other scores… bye bye Saturday!!

  7. I remember playing this game in IT lessons in school.

    I used to get to really high levels 😀

    It was fun

    Now I started college time is a lot more valuable.
