Customers come in all the time and asked if we carry smart phones like  samsung galaxy , unfortunately, we don’t get any of those come in – and even if they do – we don’t usually take them because we don’t know much about the subscription and how to price them.   You see, you can […]

We’ve just received our lease renewal .. from the landlord’s office – time flew, already we are at this location for the last 2 years. We were previously 2 doors away for 2 years – same landlord but bad feng shui at that time for us – so we moved to this new location. […]

Online Radio

Posted on April 8, 2009 - Filed Under Contests, Entertainment, Internet, Music, review | Leave a Comment

Xshot – Take Better Pictures of Yourself

Posted on November 25, 2008 - Filed Under gadgets, review | Leave a Comment

Taking pictures of yourself tends to result in very cheesey poses where your arm is stretched out toward the camera and your body tends to get twisted into weird angles. Using a camera with a timer and tripod can make for some good pictures, but it’s a hassle to set up and move around […]

More on Web Hosting

Posted on August 22, 2008 - Filed Under Internet, review | Leave a Comment

Yeah, Bluehost is pretty much toast, we were down again for about an hour yesterday. My quest continues for a better host, but since most places rank Bluehost in the top 5 it makes me wonder if this cheap shared web hosting is really worth it. Dedicated servers are much more stable of […]

LED Flashlight for your Car

Posted on March 21, 2008 - Filed Under Electronics, gadgets, review | 1 Comment

Ever fumble around in a dark car for something you dropped on the floor? The dome light is pretty much useless in cases like this and I never remember to leave a flashlight in the car for emergencies. This little gadget from LighterLight.Com is a great idea, a small LED flashlight that plugs […]
