Smartphones: better to have the features and not use them, than to need them and don't have them.
Sure, you have all those excuses, blah blah. "I don't need any of that", "I won't use any of it", "I just need a phone", "I don't want people to be texting me", "I don't want to be interrupted all the time by twits and tweets and pokes". Or maybe you don't want to be like the rest of the masses, as if you are special and unique. Right, just like every teen thinks going against the masses is different and unique. How ironic... old people not wanting to be like teens and their toys, yet acting like teens.

It seems the Costco website (www.costco.com) is down. The site says "temporarily unavailable" and when I searched to see if it was just my own connection (not likely since I get the temp page), I found out that there was a recall on their Kirkland Cookies (in Canada).

In the past, I've posted about scams related to Domain Name Registrations, like the bogus invoices from Domain Registry of America. Well the FTC in the US has won a judegment against one of these companies, Internet Listing Service. (I don't know if they are related to DROA, as there are many aliases used in these scams).
In June 2008, the FTC charged Toronto-based Internet Listing Service with sending domain name owners fake invoices that instructed them to pay an annual Web site listing fee or sign up for a search engine optimization service. Finally, in August 2010, the case is closed. The settlement issued a suspended judgment of $4.3 million, but since the defendants cannot pay up, they will turn over $10,000, the FTC said.

If you are looking to increase sales for your products or services, it's a good idea to 'comment' on recent news items. Was there a security breach on a website? Write about, and explain what steps you take to prevent something like that. A news item on Cloud Computing? Explain how you see the benefits (or negatives).
