  1. I always try my best to do everything I can on my own. I don't know why I don't like to outsource things, I've had some bad experiences in my past, and have been slowed down or forced to step back from trying to complete a project. If I end up trying to outsource anything I try for it to be the least possible amount of stuff, and usually is in the area of article writing. For this I tend to be extremely careful with the person I choose, I have a bit of OCD, so that doesn't help my cause either.
  2. I have to say these earnings are amazing! I'm currently just starting to set up a website and hope that I can get at least half of these earning per month, lol. In all honesty great job, and I hope this keeps on going successful to you and brings you more earnings . Let us know about that e-book, definitely sounds like something I might by looking into.
  3. This service seems to be really interesting, and if legit extremely good for a few extra bucks. Thanks for the share Dexter. I will try to dig a little bit more into it as well and see if I can find any proof of payment or any reviews saying if it's legit or a scam. I usually try to find all these out before going really deep into these sites. So far I haven't been able to find anything, but I will keep on trying. Looking forward to your decision on the site as well .
  4. I agree with you on this one. Though honestly I think they already archive all the data they can grab no matter what it is and no matter who the person is and was/is doing. I read sometime ago that Facebook can track and gather your web history and data no matter what you do (don't know if it's true and if it's still like that, was quite a few months ago). Even if they gather data and all, I still believe that having the option to turn this feature off in groups is something needed, at least to create the illusion of a sense of privacy. Definitely let's just hope it doesn't move out from there towards everything else.
  5. A friend of mine just sent me this video of the new Cintiq 24 HD Touch from Wacom. This looks amazing and definitely if you're into designing this is going to catch your interest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LHkHAHWEPk&feature=player_embedded I think it's great and innovative, giving digital graphic design a more personal touch, which in my opinion can become something extremely important and great. Just felt some of you here could enjoy it as well. Hopefully I was right, hehe.

    Useless Box

    So I think this is what Schrodinger was actually trying to do with his cat, but failed to get the expected results because he sealed the box. In all honesty this should be called mechanical cat box, lol. I don't know why but I found it funny, and gave me a great fear of ever having one in my hands, this could very well be the new reason for procrastination in this world...as if we didn't have any others, lol.
  7. Wow! This is amazing. The realism and depth you get from this is simply fantastic. I honestly think it's a great idea, and definitely love the idea of it being used this way for marketing. Things like this is what capture people's attention instantly, and will definitely make people remember your ad, or simply whatever you show them with it. I also think this could be used to improve productivity in an office where the employees might feel closed in, usually that feeling will lower productivity. With this you can give them a "window" to quit the monotony, and get them to feel a bit at ease in their workplace. I definitely see many uses for this little piece that can be extremely helpful, or just simply fun to have around.
  8. I agree with this. I actually kind of need the paragraph breaks, if I read something long without them, after a while I actually start to get dizzy and mix up letters/words as I read, also getting lines mixed, lol; also it really helps to start a migraine. :/ Aside from me getting all messed up with the whole walls of texts, the paragraphs break just make everything look cleaner and better; and this is not only for posts or articles...programming just gets easier with this in my opinion, way better and easier when trying to review them. On forum posts, I agree with what you have said here. Too little is painfully annoying, and too much is simply just painful. Happy medium is the way to go!
  9. From what I read on the article, it's only on groups, even though it's not as bad as being on every post, it can still be a problem. It's annoying enough to be in a group because someone randomly added you, now you might have to receive some spam from said person because you are not looking at their posts. If this ends up being "Beneficial" for FB, I see something close to this being put on every post, in a near future. I think they are just testing the waters and applying it slowly, testing and checking reactions to then expand a bit more.
  10. To be honest with you, I'm definitely not surprised by this. I dare say I was waiting on it to happen. Once they added the "Seen" time stamp for the messages, it was just a matter of time before they did something similar for other posts. I really don't like the idea, I always knew I had no privacy on FB, but now it's just silly; sometimes you avoid a post for a number of reasons, now FB is giving the person who posted it, the power to spam you asking you to check the post because you haven't :/. Hopefully a lot of people complain and they take this thing out for good.
  11. I have a thing for astronomy pictures, as well as for nature pictures, for wallpapers. I usually check on reddit: [Don't fear to click, the links are completely SFW, it's just the name used for the subreddit] http://www.reddit.com/r/earthporn (Nature) & http://www.reddit.com/r/SpacePorn (astronomy); they tend to post amazing pictures and in great quality as well. I have to say, though, that I checked the site and they have some amazing wallpapers there, so I think I'm adding this site to my list as well. Thanks for the share!
  12. In my opinion if you can work out a really nice place to attract traffic from a "micro" niche then you would have a better chance of success. Like you say, popular niches have a lot of people therefor there will be a ton of places where that people can scatter around, leaving just a bunch of small groups available to grab for traffic; in the end they might even be an equal or similar amounts of traffic. To be honest the real answer, I think would be, depends on how much time you plan to wait before you say "This is my peak"...with a popular niche and a lot of time in your hands and dedication you can slowly become one of the tops, but starting up, it will be harder since there are already some services on top, that have been there for years and will be hard to bring down. But as you say for the "micro", it's easier to get to the top quick, and will, most likely, be way faster than what it does to get there with a popular niche. Yes, it might be a small amount of traffic, but considering that the niche isn't really that popular you wouldn't have to worry about competition as much, and might be able to secure and lock that traffic to you; whereas with popular niches people will usually just jump from one service to another, and it will be harder to secure the traffic for your own.
  13. I use Chrome, it's become my favorite, Opera comes really close up, was my choice before Chrome came out, still use Opera on Smartphone. There was a time when Chrome had a massive crash on my computer and no matter what I tried I could never re-install, don't know what happened. After about a month of just not poking at it, and finding out that the browser had been updated, I decided to try and re-install, everything worked perfectly. During this downtime of not being able to run Chrome, I went back to Opera. I've honestly never had any problems with Opera, neither on the computer or the smartphone.
  14. Like it's been stated here multiple times, for me, it depends on how different the ideas are. In my case for example if I was considering creating different websites: one for music, one for movies, one for shows (for example); then I would definitely try and just gather them together and build just one big site and give them each an area in that site, but making it so the site is for entertainment and not just one topic inside entertainment. This way I can dedicate more time into polishing this idea and website and be able to get more people into one same place, increasing it's traffic. With multiple websites, neglect might set in for one or the other and you might just lose the traffic there completely, so I rather try and maintain the traffic with only one website. Of course if you believe there is an extreme need for each topic to have it's own website, and you have the time to maintain them, then by all means, it might even be better to some point, but only if they can all be managed equally well.

    CodeSchool.com

    CodeSchool is great, I like the fact that they offer some courses for free, so you can try them out and see if you like their style, and if you like then you can do the investment. They've also added a lot more courses, I remember becoming a member a few months ago and they only had about 7 courses available, it almost doubled from what I see now. In my opinion if you are not sure you want to pay the $25, take advantage of the free courses, you'll see it's worth the investment for the other courses. CodeAcademy is also a good alternative, I used it before CodeSchool, they've also grown a lot since I started using it, I remember when I joined they only had the javascript tutorial up. The tutorials they send online are great, I did a few back when it started but haven't been able to keep on going with them, I do plan on doing them in some time.
