Google Analytics Premium

Today Google had released the google analytics premium account with the price band of $150,000 per year, i was really shocked on the price band, no idea how many enterprise customer will go for it. In general google analytics premium account we have some nice stuff like

  • Run sql query aganist your data
  • Client will owns the data
  • 24/7 support
  • 50 custom variables

Here is the GA account comparison

google account comparison chart

Because of the data Data ownership may be most of the enterprise company can look to move to GA permium account

Competition is healthy for any industry to grow and progress, but Google appears to be doing this all by itself in the field of web analytics.

will write a another post tomorrow on drawback in free GA account

Solving Facebook tshirt spam

Today when I was looking into my facebook wall I found most of my friends was posting the free facebook tshirt. When I ask them they told it was spam. When I try to debug further on the spam i found the problem. They did it in smart way. actually they ask for your name and facebook upload email Id, facebook gives you a unique email Id to upload the status via email address to your facebook account these guys use that upload email Id and update your status with that spam message.

To solve this go to http://facebook.com/mobile and you can see a email Id saying upload via email . Look for find more below the upload email id. Click that and it will open a popup, in that look for refresh the upload email id and click that your unique email Id will change.

DO SHARE YOU FACEBOOK UPLOAD EMAIL ID TO ANYONE

Let me know if you have any issue. If you like the post just like me in facebook

Install Cassandra 0.8.5 in windows 7

Today i was exploring Nosql option and found Cassandra 0.8.5. you can download the latest version from here. After Download Follow the Below steps

Step 1: Download Java JDK also from here
Step 2 : Install the JDK
Step 3 : Unzip the Cassandra file to some location in your local drive (D:dev)
step 4 : Go to “D:devapache-cassandra-0.8.5conf” . Open the file “cassandra.yaml” in a notepad and change the following :
Change /var/lib/cassandra/data to D:devapache-cassandra-0.8.5data
Change /var/lib/cassandra/commitlog to D:devapache-cassandra-0.8.5commitlog
Change /var/lib/cassandra/saved_caches to D:devapache-cassandra-0.8.5saved_caches

Save the file after that

Step 5: Now for everything to work correctly, you need to update the JAVA_HOME and CASSANDRA_HOME system variables. To this, we need to follow this:
