Free Google Apps Sign Up Page

I do not know if you have noticed, but finding the FREE version of Google Apps just got harder. Why? Google removed the signup page. Now, you have to do some serious googling to find a Google service! Sad, I must say. Very Sad.

I wonder if this is a sign of things to come, and we may be seeing the beginning to the end of Free google apps email? If you recall, when it was first launched, you could get up to 50email addresses. This came down to 10 email addresses and now, the link is no longer easily available…not a good trend if you ask me.

Anyhow, for those who still want to register Free Google Apps accounts, let me save you some gooling and find the link to the sign up page below. Let hope it continues to work for a long time.

The above link was working at the time of the composition of this post. Should it break, please advise in the comments below to initiate a search for where else google would hide this form.


As was expected, Google Apps free is gone! If you were grandfather’d in – lucky for you. The above link will now land you on the page for enterprise sign up page. On Dec 8th, Google sent out emails informing the users of the free Google Apps about the change in their policies. Sad to see that solution go down the drain.  🙁


FREE PesaPal Payment Module for Virtuemart 1.1.9 (J1.5)

PesaPal offers a wonderful payment gateway for developers to integrate with mobile payment solutions available in Kenya, namely M-Pesa and Airtel Money (at least as of the composition of this) and also with VISA! Now, unfortunately, they only offer basic integration instructions and no specific modules for major platforms like Joomla. I have therefore taken the liberty to develop a module for virtuemart that I hope you will find helpful. I have submitted it to the JED and I hope they will approve it. The Joomlasphere mentions many issues with approval of free VirtueMart extensions but I hope for the best.

Tested On:
- Virtuemart v1.1.9
- Joomla v1.5.26
- PHP v5.3.10 & MySQL v5.5.20
