Internet Access: The Cost

It is interesting that we take internet access for granted. I’m currently on vacation in Florida and wanted some online time. To gain access in the location where we are (man made island in Stuart Florida). The cost for a day is 8.00 and the cost for the week is 14.00. Since we are here for a while I got the …

Two new interesting sites

www.hab.la and www.gazelle.com Hab.la lets you hold a im chat from your web site. Something similar to LiveHelp or Livechat but it uses your IM client (AIM, gTalk, etc..) Gazelle.com let’s you sell your old electronic items (or just recycle them). I was able to price out my old Samsung Blackjack.

Apple did it right

I purchased my iphone in December, so far it has been great. I even have my wife interested in getting one. Recently my phone had the ringer on / off button come off.
