Cutting Cable

Here is something cool. After a few decades of having cable TV I finally made the break and cancelled my service. Why, you ask? Because the cost was getting so high and I don’t even watch it that much. In fact, I often just watch because it is there but there really weren’t many shows that I actively follow.

Of course, there are many other options for watching TVs and movies in this age of streaming media. I can get both Netflix and Hulu for about a quarter of what I was paying in cable costs. And there are newer offerings that live stream like SlingTV, Vue and DirecTV. At this point I am trying some of these services out to see what I like best for the cheapest cost.

If you haven’t considered “cutting the cord”, I suggest you look at your current bill and see how much you spend. It’s scary how those cable bills creep up over time, especially if you aren’t paying attention.

Make Money on Photos

There are a variety of job fields that are conducive to freelance work. These jobs do not require one’s presence in an office but instead, the work can be done from just about anywhere and submitted for pay. Writers, photographers and web designers are three such groups of professionals who often do full-time or part-time freelance work.

But the area of freelance work has really taken off with the advent of the internet. A professional freelancer or even just an amateur can secure jobs or earn a few extra dollars through access to millions of potential clients and buyers worldwide right through their computer. This is particularly true of photographers.

When you combine the advancements in digital photography (or photo scanners) with the universal reach of the internet, you now have a huge potential buying market for selling photos online. This is great for the part-time or amateur photographer as you don’t need to be a professional photographer with an established history to sell your work. The quality of your photos can be evaluated openly online through submissions to photo sites or through your own website portfolio.

And not only has the opportunity to find buyers for your photos increased with the availability of the internet, but the number of buyers has increased as well. If you surf around online you will see that much the internet is visually appealing. Every big website and even smaller personal sites use stock photos on their webpages. This means that there is a large amount of potential buyers for every type of image you can imagine.

If you interested in selling photos online, you couldn’t have picked a better time. You won’t become rich from your pictures, but you could make a nice income depending on how much time you are able to invest. As with any new adventure in earning money, especially online, you will need to do a little research on how best to get started selling your photos. Luckily there are resources available which can give you a head-start and shorten the learning curve.

Webcams by Logitech

The quality of Logitech webcams are much better when compared with other webcams that you can locate. The point that this webcam can record videos in Hi-Def makes this a lot better than a lot of other webcams available. Many individuals love the point that this particular webcam can actually record movies in up to 1080p. The quality that is created with these webcams are just about the highest quality you can find. This is great if you are making those HD video calls to show your mother what your new baby just realized.

Your video calls will also turn out sounding great along with the microphone which is built in to every unit.. They have actually integrated their noise canceling technology in this device. The great thing in regards to this is that people will be able to hear you even if you are inside a room that has a lot of noise in the background. And unlike other webcams that has the particular microphone on the top of the webcam, Logitech has positioned their microphone on the front of the unit.

Logitech has actually gone one step further with their webcams, as you’ll be able to record your videos and upload them right to the web with their one click technology. This obviously will end up saving you time and frustration from logging in to your Facebook account as well as Youtube account individually. Obviously if your a video Internet marketer you will also be able to use this technology to get your videos up on Youtube.

7 Inch Tablets

After the wild success of Apple’s iPad, a flux of new tablet models have come onto the market. Not only do you now have a few choices in operating systems, but you also have two main sizes to choose from: 7 inch tablets and 10 inch tablets.

Since the iPad is a 10 inch tablet (almost), many of the early competing tablets have been released in the same size. But some people are finding that a 7 inch size is a bit more portable and easier for tasks like reading. In fact, most eReaders come with 6-7 inch screens making them better for holding upright for extended periods of time.

The other bonus of a 7 inch vs 10 inch screen is the cost. The smaller tablets tend to be more affordable than their larger counterparts and not everyone can afford a $500-600 tablet.

Here I will review some of the best 7 inch tablets on the market today. I should also mention that the highly anticipated Amazon tablet, the Kindle Fire, is a 7 inch tablet and available for order.
