I spoke with a friend on Yahoo Messenger and he told me that we can now sign up with Paypal from Romania, too. I didn’t believe him, but when i visited the website i realised it’s true. So yes, now we can have paypal accounts in Romania, too, but we can only send funds, the accounts being restricted.

It sems Adsense was only available for Romania unofficial and only a few ebsite have been accepted during this period. But now, as Cristian Mezei stated, it’s 100% sure that it will be available for romanians too in a few weeks.It will be a tough one for the romanian PPC advertising programs, because Google will surely have higher bids and it will probably be the only first tier advertising network in Romania. Unfortunately, Cristian won’t reveal it’s sources.

MySpace will release in the second quarter of this year a news service running on the community rating system that Digg uses in combination with the Google News system, of course, a custom made one. It is much probably it will be a big competition for Digg and Digg-like websites because of it’s huge membership and traffic, but, fortunately for Digg, MySpace’s users aren’t Tech Geeks, as Digg’s and it may not be a direct competition, but still it’s a big threat for it. Will Digg remain the leader of [...]
