Fuel Saving Tips

CNN has an article "How to lower the pain at the pump" that has 6 tips on how to be frugal when it comes to gasoline. I had posted an article on GasBuddy.com, but I think GasPriceWatch.com is a little better. The 6 tips that the CNN article gives are:

  1. Find the cheapest gas stations in your area
  2. The type of gas station makes a difference
  3. What time you get to the pump
  4. Driving style
  5. Air cents
  6. Use the right gas

Live Search Mobile

So a buddy of mine and I were looking for a copy of Army of Two to rent and he whipped out his Windows Mobile Device and started looking up all of the Blockbuster Videos in our area. 10 minutes later we were at a Blockbuster Video renting Army of Two. I asked what he was using to look up the Blockbuster Videos' phone numbers so fast and he said that he was using Live Search Mobile. I immediately loaded it this morning!


Is Spokeo Okee-Doe-Kee?

So is privacy an issue of the past or are we just on social networks oblivious to what we post about ourselves?

You login with either your aol, gmail, hotmail or yahoo email address and it pulls in everyone from your contact list and starts tracking them across the following networks:
