Welcome to another roundup where we cover all the interesting news we could not write about over the week. It has been quite a interesting week though and there are lots of things to cover in this roundup.
iPhone Theme Maker
Who does not like themes? But finding a good theme is always hard, if not impossible. The iPhone Theme Maker on the other hand allows you to create your own personalized theme for the iPhone. The iPhone theme maker allows you to upload your own wallpaper, dock and statusbar and icons, along with allowing you to change the icons currently being used on your phone.
Google AdSense Policy Below Post Title
Quite some time back we had discussed a new policy Google AdSense rolled out where they discouraged publishers from adding Google AdSense ads directly below the post titles. Seems like the Google AdSense team has started notifying publishers about such titles placements of ads. Quick Online Tips talks about their recent conversation about with the AdSense team with regards to this issue.
The solution to get over such a problem would be including a text or image that says Advertising, right before the ad code.
Comcast 250GB Bandwidth Caps
Another interesting news doing the rounds is that, Comcast will be applying a 250GB bandwidth cap on all home Internet users from October 1st. This is not the first time Comcast has receiving bad publicity for their policies, early this year there were several reports that Comcast was throttling BitTorrent traffic, which they had to reverse after receiving lots of negative publicity in the web world.

Website Dissector Quarkbase
Quarkbase made a stylish entry into the already saturated website dissection service. They provide you with information from the usual suspects Alexa, Compte, Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Google PR, Google Backlinks, Yahoo Backlinks, MSN Backlinks etc.
Quarkbase segregates information into six different categories namely Introduction, Social Popularity, Traffic, People, Spotlight and Technical. Overall looks like a good place to find information about your website.
ShrinkFile File Compression and Hosting
ShrinkFile is a new file compression and hosting service, which allows you to upload and compress your files by archiving them. Though the concept of archiving files online is too overwhelming since most of the operating systems including Windows XP and Windows Vista provide users with Zip functionality, so we wonder why people would want to use a online service to do that.
In the past we have covered several online storage websites which offer free space to users, you may want to check those out too.
