ClixSense a Scam?

June 30th, 2009 Comments off

ClixSense is a money making opportunity that is all about viewing ads for money. They also pay $5 for each referral that decides to upgrade their account to premium. However, the problem is that there are almost no ads available to view, and they usually only pay one cent anyway. You could potentially make money with this company by referring others to upgrade their account to premium. However, the problem is that then the mechanic of it would resemble a pyramid scheme. That is because only those who refer others would really earn money. Since I do not like the idea of such programs, I cannot recommend it, as I want the readers of my blog to actually earn money not only by having many referrals.
Personally, I did not lose any of my money on this program, and by reading about ClixSense I gained some knowledge about how such programs work. I think there are a lot of better programs available to earn money on the web such as AdSense. You could potentially earn hundreds of dollars per month if you have a lot of traffic. Just keep in mind that you need an established website to earn any serious money with AdSense. Adsense is all about traffic and targeted advertising.

Secure Credit Card Processing

June 27th, 2009 Comments off

Merchants who have their business today have a lot more possibilities to choose from than they used to have even a decade ago. Today, many customers prefer to pay with their credit cards rather than to pay with cash. You, the provider of goods or services that your customers want, should accept those cards. Accepting credit cards can be very easy and convenient if you know where to obtain the best deal on a merchant account. Credit card merchant accounts and credit card processing that can be applied for and obtained from are a very good option to choose. Whether your business is online commerce, retail commerce, or telemarketing, you will be able to create your own merchant account and accept credit cards of any type. If you want to accept credit cards, you have to make sure that the solution that you choose is safe, secure, and efficient. If you wonder how looks compared to other companies and how secure their solutions are, visit their website and look at the rates that they offer. The rates start as low as 2.19% +$0.25 per transaction for online transactions. The offer is slightly different for retail merchants who will pay only 1.49% + $0.19 per transaction in case of debit cards and 1.79% + $0.20 per transaction in case of credit cards. If you would like to try this service before you make your purchase, I recommend that you read what other users have to say about their services. Another thing that you can do is to compare prices of the company that I am writing about with another company that offers similar services. You will see that the prices of are competitive and that they are worth considering. I also recommend that you visit the website as soon as you finish reading this post.

Annoying Gadgets

June 27th, 2009 Comments off

Do you want to make a prank on someone? How about hiding an annoying sound gadget somewhere? You should hide it during daylight, and when it will get dark, the sound gadget is going to simulate the sound of dripping water or a barking dog. If a person decides to switch on the light to find the source of the sound, then the gadget is going to switch off itself. The idea behind the gadget is brilliant, as it will be very hard to actually detect the source of the sound. If you got interested, then I can tell you that this device costs approximately $10, so it will not be a big investment. Have fun!

Wikipedia is with no doubt the biggest online encyclopedia. Many people around the world use it to find the answers to their questions. Until very recently, the only downside were the search options. To search for something you had to type exactly a keyword that you were interested in. That was all you could do. However, some time ago with the help of Powerset�s technology, the search feature was drastically improved, and right now it resembles a lot more Google�s search feature. I must say that a reliable search function is very important, because many users have problems searching for various terms on many websites. The fact that the newest search technology breaks down keywords into related concepts enabling better search methods is thrilling and innovative.

Sahara�s Solar Energy

June 15th, 2009 Comments off

Sahara is a giant desert and most people do not realize how huge it is. Sahara is almost as big as United States and is even larger than Australia. This piece of land is mostly uninhabited, and while some might think of Sahara as a waste of land, there might be a use for it. That is because Sahara has a very hot climate and the Sun is almost constantly shining on it. If we could somehow use Sahara to our advantage and make it produce solar energy, we could have an almost unlimited supply of energy. There are some plans to utilize it, and I am sure that sooner or later our scientists will develop an efficient way to do so.

This community serves those who are competitive players and those who want to have some fun at the same time. The best thing about this online community is the fact that it provides free tournaments with great prizes. The tournaments take place every day and each person can participate in them freely. The managers of the website award thousands of dollars in prizes every day. You can win anything by participating in online tournaments, from Apple iPods to a $200 worth Visa Gift Card. A person can win a maximum of one prize per month. Each person enters the tournaments to compete against other players from all around the world. A person can choose among many categories of games.

If shooter games are your strong point, it will be the best for you to participate in a tournament offering shooter games. If you prefer other games that are not arcade-based, you will enjoy strategy or puzzle games. I am very happy to have discovered this website and I wish more people knew how much fun they could have while participating in any of the tournaments.

Not Everyone Switching to Vista?

June 2nd, 2009 Comments off

Vista is the newest operating system released by Microsoft, but older operating systems such as Windows XP are still very popular. It seems that many users refuse to switch to Vista. This includes home users and large companies alike. There are many reasons for such a decision; however, among the most popular ones is that Vista is expensive. Even though Microsoft released multiple versions of Vista in hopes of attracting a large number of customers, it has to be said that even the least expensive version of Vista is still quite expensive. Another reason of this operating system not being that popular is that to get the full value out of Vista you need a relatively new computer and a lot of RAM. Difficulty learning how to use a new operating system is also an important factor.
