What is DealDash.com? How to and Tips on this Online Auction

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI spent some time on DealDash.com to try and understand what’s going on. I spent a Sunday working the site to find ways to win. I got my money back with a couple bids, but it definitely took some work. Let’s find out how it works and some tips and tricks I found so you can win. What is DealDash? DealDash is a website where you can bid on items or buy them outright. Here’s the catch – each bid you put down costs money on it’s own. Anywhere from 10-60 cents a bid, which is set by DealDash when you purchase bid packs. Currently it’s at about 12.5 cents per bid. Once you purchase your bid pack, you go into the auction area. You can start to bid on any item that is new and under $5 in the bidding...

Help WebOSRoundup and Win a Pre3

Help WebOSRoundup and Win a Pre3

My good friends at WebOSRoundup, and Senior Editor Rich Dunbar is running a fund raiser at their site. But their fundraiser has an added perk. One person will, in the end, win a Pre3. The Pre3 was HP’s 3rd generation mobile phone using the WebOS software. It was expected to be released over a month ago, but HP discontinued the device along with the TouchPad. Therefore, the Pre3 only got released in the UK. How to win a Pre3 Simply go to the website (http://swag.webosroundup.com/) and buy a ticket. The more tickets you buy, the less the tickets cost and you will have more entries. The contest ends on October 22nd and winner drawn on the 23rd.

DigGoogle – What Google Can Gain if They Buy Digg

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSDigg grew to a powerhouse site in a very short time. The Popular News Aggregator service continues to be a great place for people to not only read news, but also contribute to what they think is news. Alexa reports that Digg has been fluctuating around the top 100 to 150 sites being viewed. 52.5% of those viewers are in the US. The rumor mill is stirring up again that Google has put interest in buying Digg. TechCrunch reports that the “Rumor” is Digg will be selling for $200 million although CEO Jay Adelson denies it. Will this be a good deal for Digg, or can they grow and survive on their own? Digg started in 2004 by Kevin Rose, Own Byrne, Ron Gorodetzky and Jay Adelson. The idea was to aggregate news items and...

It’s the End of the DVD As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThat’s great, it started with video tapes, movies in the home at 8, Lenny Bruce is still not afraid. I remember when we got our first VCR. It was a Betamax and we had some of the coolest movies. Of course, the Beta went the way of the do do bird. Then it was VHS. Come and almost gone. Now it’s the DVDs turn. Earlier in the year the big question was “Who was going to replace DVD’s: HD DVD or Blu-Ray?” Now we know that answer – but does it matter? Blu-Ray players really haven’t been selling like hotcakes and if you have one, you know that it’s not the fastest thing on the planet. The ultimate irony is that Sony owned Beta and lost to VHS. Now Sony won with Blu-Ray, but will...

Weekly Roundup 1 – Will Android beat Godzilla, Mothra?

I am reminded of the old Godzilla movies when I hear “Android”. But in all reality, this is not much different. We just don’t see a cardboard city get demolished by 3 guys dressed in costumes. Google has given themselves not only a humungous undertaking in aquiring Android, but also a new buzzword that has been passed back and forth many times in the last few weeks. Since it’s silent aquisition back in August, the news has been anything but ‘quiet’. Companies getting on the bandwagon, putting in the hours to make this thing a success. But the real question is – Is this something that the massess want, or will this become another piece of diregarded technology. It’s safe to say that everyone wants a phone that can do more than take phone calls. Text messaging has become more viable way of communicating. According to www.cellsigns.com, 79% of the...
