This post is reserved for the true nerds out there. If you don’t have your suspenders on and your pocket protector in place, move along – nothing to see here. Most of us with office jobs spend a good portion of the day clacking away on a keyboard. Perhaps the “chiclets” of a laptop, or […]

DISCLAIMER: I have no affiliation with any of the companies talked about below nor have I been compensated in anyway from any of the companies.

UPDATE: Story update at the bottom… The purpose of this post is just so shed some light on a terrible shipping experience from a popular online camera company: Adorama Camera. They weren’t late with the package and I haven’t received it yet, so I don’t know if it’s banged up or not, but I would […]

NOTE: This post is meant as a warning to online shoppers to avoid shopping with CompactAppliance or any of the “Living Direct Network” of sites — they are a bottom-of-the-barrel company with terrible customer support and you’d be better to spend your money at another reputable dealer.

Saw a Tweet from adii (WooThemes founder) that said “This shit is intense” and a link over to a Vimeo page that looked to be an ad from Frito Lay for their Tostitos salsa. I thought “he must be impressed easily” and pressed play.
Thanks to Todd Swarthout for the heads up on this one. In a world where logic is dictated by the guy with the biggest bank account balance, Citi has started notifying card-holders that if they spend less than $2400/year they will be charged a $60 yearly “service fee” in order for Citi to cover it’s “rising […]

I used to sell on eBay a lot a few years ago and had an OK experience. A few times I had people try and rip me off, but fortunately the fear of bad feedback killed the transactions before they could continue. Last week I decided to clear some tech out of my closet, so […]

I wanted to relay my experience so any potential Nexus One shoppers out there may get an idea of their own experience-to-be if they run into trouble. I bought a Nexus One 2 weeks […]
I’ve had an on-again, off-again relationship with eBay for about 8 years now. If found it handy in the past to try and sell more obscure items on eBay than Craigslist when I didn’t think I would find locals that would be willing to pay what I wanted for the item. In all that time, […]
I was just shopping on Newegg and decided to purchase some more RAM for my computer. I added the item to my shopping card, hit purchase, entered my Credit Card info and hit Finish. I had forgotten that I had enabled the frustratingly stupid “Verified by Visa” check-out security process in the past… I somehow […]

This is a common scenario for most nerds. You have a gadget on the mind. It might be a monitor, a video card, a phone, or in my case a notbook. You do the research, memorize the specs, model names, prices, and they you wait for a reason to bite. That reason ranges from waiting […]
