Using an iPod Touch as a Primary Mobile Device

Posted by on Jan 5, 2011 in General

As the mobile web and smartphones have grown in popularity over the last couple years I’ve begun to feel somewhat left behind with just my very basic feature phone. I’ve contemplated getting a smartphone many times, but what prevents me every time is the fact that I hardly ever use the phone I already have, so its hard to justify paying more to get connected to the mobile web on my phone. On average I probably only talk on my current phone for 10 mins each month and maybe send between 15-20 texts, and its on a family plan that my parents fund, so its basically free to me. I have...

Facebook’s New Chat Feature

Posted by on Apr 24, 2008 in Facebook, General, Social Media

Earlier this week I noticed a little box in the bottom right corner of my Facebook window telling me about Facebook chat, but I didn’t end up trying it out until just today. Although it seemed slow a couple times, I really like this new feature. Facebook chat reminds me a lot of Gmails built in chat feature, which has become my most often used form of IMing. One thing I really like about Gmail’s build it chat is that I am able to catch a lot of friends who don’t usually log into IM clients. I will probably catch a lot more friends now through the Facebook chat feature....

Posted by on Apr 2, 2008 in General, Wordpress, Youtube

I’ve had problems with embedding Youtube videos in WordPress blog posts in the past, and since I don’t post videos often enough to remember the solution I end up researching my problem each time. Now that I’ve got the solution down I figured I’d share it with you in case you run into the same trouble. I haven’t upgraded to WordPress 2.5, so I’m not sure if the fix is already be built in the newest version. If it is fixed in newer version then this only applies to older versions of WordPress. There are two solutions to the problem: 1. Turn off the Visual...

It’s All Your Fault

Posted by on Mar 15, 2008 in General

A few weeks ago at Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire, one of the speakers said something to the effect of: if you are not successful it’s all your fault. This implies that you have control over your future, meaning that if you really are not successful you have the control to change it. Success doesn’t happen immediately but by taking control of your life and taking the actions necessary to become successful, you will become successful. Sure, you may encounter circumstances in your life that may slow you down, or set you back, but if you have an attitude of...

Some Inspiration from Dr. Seuss

Posted by on Feb 10, 2008 in General

I love the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go, by Dr. Seuss. It seems to well represent the way I look at life—a journey where one should look forward to the experiences one will encounter, and even take action to seek out new experiences. I like the message it conveys that in life there are no guarantees and despite one’s ambition and confidence, one will still fail at times when striving to excel, even after experiencing great success and having been “on top”. Failure isn’t the end, however. One can always just pick one’s self right back up and start going...
