Why Change Blogs

You may be wondering why we have changed from a wordpress blog to our new blogger blog.

The answer is simple, money.

While although I like the wordpress platform and it diversity and power, they do not allow google adsense.

Whereas, blogger does. I am not looking to get rich or even support myself solely form blogging, but why not earn a little everyday for doing something you are already doing for free?

The process is simple. I set up a Adsense account with Google, then ad my blogger site, and boom they add ads to my site. Every time one of my readers click on an ad they are interested in, SNAP, a couple cents my pocket.

For that it is a no brainer.

Sorry WordPress, love your software, but $5 to $10 a day is better.

Thank you all for reading!

iPhone Tethering Coming Soon!

iphone1According to Mobile Crunch AT&T has sanctioned tethering of the iPhone. Tethering is the process by which you allow the iPhone to act as a 3G modem for your laptop. This would allow you to share the iPhone’s cellular connection with your laptop.  While although Mobile Crunch had no pricing info on the tethering, AT&T usually charges $30 a month for this service on other phones.

As if those iPhone plans were not expensive enough!

Mac Rumors has heard that this tethering capability is expected to be built into the 2.2 firmware.

All of this may not be monumental news since this can be done with out paying $30 a month on a jailbroken iPhone.

But we will see.

Fish Tank Toilets, WHY?

fish-tank_uwxpn_69Researchers say that staring at fish for a couple of minutes each day can keep your blood pressure normal. A Chinese company, Runto, has developed a toilet that comes with an integrated fish tank.

I am no genius, just ask my family, but I can’t quite figure out how women are supposed to “watch the fish while taking care of business.”

The toilet has three tanks – one for water flowing in, one for water flowing out and a third for fish and other underwater plants. This design makes sure that you don’t lose some of the fish in the tank every time you use the toilet. The company’s main claim is that the integration of a fish tank reduces the amount of water that flushes down.

I still ask WHY?

Love motorcycles but worry about the environment? (I’m sure there are a few out there) Well, don’t sacrifice the thrill of cruising, because you now can get your ride modified just like the Kawasaki ZX-10 owned by Jason and Jeremy Cantwell. The duo got their ZX-10 retrofitted with an ecofriendly gasoline/hydrogen engine. These brothers are still able to churn out 170 hp from the engine but as an added benefit they doubled the mileage of this beast.

Now there is a eco-friendly vehicle you can still feel like a real man on!

Wasting Money on Ink Cartridges?

Ever feel like all you do is change you ink cartridge? You buy a new one and boom your printer tells you that you need a new one. One of the main reasons may be it isn’t really empty!  PC World jut did a study on this conspiracy.

The quantity of unused ink ranged from about 8 percent in an Epson-brand cartridge to a whopping 45 percent in an aftermarket cartridge for a Canon printer. After posting low-ink warnings, those printers wouldn’t let us resume printing until we inserted a new cartridge.

Now if that is irritating enough notice what PC World noted in a break down of the cost ink.

If you bought a gallon of the stuff over the life of your printer, you’d have paid about $4731 for a liquid that one aftermarket vendor told us was “cheap” to make. For some perspective, gasoline costs about $3 per gallon (at the moment), while a gallon of Beluga caviar (imagined as a liquid) costs about $18,000–surprisingly, only about four times as expensive as good old printer ink.

There are a few things you can do though to alleviate the cost of ink.

1) Refill it yourself.

2) Software such as GreenPrint can help you save. (PC and Mac)

Although most of us keep on printing till we can’t anymore, I bet this article makes the few that don’t pretty upset at the waste.
