1. Apress Affiliate Program--Make Money!
We're pleased to introduce the Apress Affiliate Program, which benefits online communities, website owners, and bloggers who publicly recognize Apress books and help generate sales. The program credits affiliates who link to Apress eBooks a 10% commission on eBook sales when their visitors click through and purchase Apress eBooks.
Setup is free and an account is easy to maintain. We'll supply affiliates with images or text links to place on their sites. Then at the beginning of every month, we'll send a check to each affiliate for the previous month's commissions.
For more details and to set up an affiliate account, visit http://www.apress.com/affiliate/ 


2. Ablog--The Apress Weblogs

Visit the new and improved Ablog to be a part of inside opinion and the latest industry talk. You'll find timely posts from Apress' own authors, editors, and readers. (And be sure to check out postings by Gary Cornell, Apress publisher and voice behind the creative  insightful "Gary's Eclectic Thoughts-From the Publisher.")

Apress is proud to provide this venue, combining authors, technologists, employees, and the publisher-all on one floor, thinking out loud and outside of the box. Ablog is RSS enabled and supports RSS1, RSS2, and Atom formats. Subscribe and stay current: http://blogs.apress.com/

4. The Apress SuperIndex

If you've ever kicked yourself for not bookmarking that PDF or turning down the corner of the book with the awesome code, suffer no longer. We introduce the Apress SuperIndex, a search function that locates the keyword or code snippet you need to make your life easier. 

With the SuperIndex, you can quickly search for specific sentences or lines of code within a book you already own or are interested in purchasing. Usage is limited by IP. Search now at http://superindex.apress.com.
