Upscale restaurants are up in arms against bottled water.

The Price of Ink Cartridges

May 11th, 2007 · No Comments

Ever wondered why ink cartridges are so highly priced? On a per-pound basis ink is more expensive that Russian caviar. Don’t take my word for it – here’s PC World.

May 11th, 2007 · 1 Comment

There’s a coffee shop in our office complex where they don’t accept credit cards for less than $3. I have been going there every single day and he declined to give me coffee on my card. I was really eager to try out my citi credit card, to find out if I’d get 3% or [...]

How Would an Online Nursing Degree Work?

May 9th, 2007 · No Comments

I am curious how this online nursing degree program would work. If you read the article in detail, you get the idea that you can even get an MBA for nursing. The reason I am a little puzzled is that I can’t think of how such a person-oriented, physical skill-centric job can be taught using [...]

Now a private enterprise is trying to make it even easier – the idea is, when you have to send someone a regular letter, you pay $0.99 and send an email. The service, Postful, prints the [...]

V7N Search Marketing News:
Wikipedia introduced the no-follow tag, presumably as way to prevent people using Wikipedia to pass link juice. Even when most Wikipedians wanted no-follow removed, Jimbo Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, hs chosen to keep no-follow.

My friend’s home business is growing faster than anticipated, and he is looking for office space. He had some specific questions like whether he should get an executive suite, or just a room at a flat rate in some mall/business complex. As always, I was clueless, but my boss wasn’t.

Targeted Traffic on Sale?

April 27th, 2007 · No Comments

You can buy targeted traffic, and I am not talking about google’s product here. Quality Traffic Supply promises to deliver targeted traffic to a website that is contextually driven. I wonder how their business model works – seeing as how google pretty much dominates the show with regard to contextual advertising. The benefit, as far [...]
