Real time Delegate tracker & GOP race update:
Bottom Line: By now you know it was Mitt's night last night. A clean sweep in D.C.,
Google offers $10 Starbucks card for $5 today:
Bottom Line: This has been offered by other deal sites with huge success previously so if you want a $10 Starbucks gift card for $5 - I'd go to Goggle offers early today.
Bottom Line: I feel like the Verizon ad guy. Can you hear me now? For years I've been warning about the unsustainable spending rate of our Federal Government and have preciously predicted the problems with our debt and the outcome of these issues (QE, weaker dollar, inflation). This isn't a political statement - it's a statement of economic fact based on every economic model I've used for the next ten years... The President's proposed budget would certainly mean the economic destruction of the
Lest people think I still can't be trusted how about this latest development... The President of the Council of Foreign Relations identifying debt as the greatest National Security Threat in the
Chinese buyers are snapping up
Bottom Line: The emerging middle class and rising upper class in China is not only quickly aiding China in becoming the world's top economic force (the recently passed Japan for number two), it's also leading to it's citizens becoming big international players in the economy as well. Chinese people are now the second largest foreign buyers of
LinkedIn's new features:
Bottom Line: You're seeing the business oriented social service work in more traditional social media features with added group options and now better conversation based search results. It would appear that LinkedIn's strategy is to become the predominant social media site among it's users as it fears Facebook taking to much attention away from it's users (as increasingly people are keeping up with fewer social media sites). It's a tight balance because many if not most LinkedIn users really do just want the business professional experience.
New airline trend? Carry on baggage fees:
Bottom Line: Just when we perfected efficient carry-on packing a couple of airlines are going to hit us for fees there too. Spirit has already added in carry-on baggage fees but now Allegiant Air is adding the carry fee as well (starting today). It's cheaper to pay online that at the gate (prices range from between $15 to $35). My fear is that this trend catches on with the others. In the meantime be advised that if you fly Allegiant or Spirit you can't avoid some kind of baggage fee.
Instagram for Android is now available:
Bottom Line: Many Droid users have wondered when they'd have access to the most popular app to edit and upload to a variety of social media options. That time has come.
PS3 can now stream Amazon Prime content:
Bottom Line: Sony and Microsoft continue to vie for the console to provide the most streaming content. Yesterday Amazon teamed with Sony's PS3 as a distributer of Amazon Prime streaming content. This is a win for all three parties. All three you say? Sony, Amazon and you and me (if you own a PS3). There are now enough options available to use a combo of a couple of streaming services to account for most of your entertainment desires at a much lower cost.
