Feel free to share if you have better pricing available.
Technology today just moves lighting fast! By the time you walk out of the store with your new gadget, there’s practically a newer one available that’s better. This holds true especially for laptops and computers. The article by PCWORLD provides some great tips on when you should buy a new computer.
I personally still use a laptop I bought back in 2005 when I started my company. A Dell Inspiron 6400 – T2300 Intel @ 1.66GHz, 2 Gig RAM, 320GB HD.
Still boots up fast! I’ve only rebuilt the hard drive ONCE since I bought it because I lost a battle with a virus and it was due time to upgrade anyways. That’s when I bought a new hard drive – 320GB. This was an upgrade from 120Gb.
By keeping the registry clean and uninstalling unused software, I’ve been able to keep it healthy. Because it’s an older laptop, I run a clone of drive every week – just in case.
Anyways, have a read of the article and share the age of your laptop and what you do to keep it going!
According to article below, there is speculation that the iPhone 5 will start shipping in the fall?
There are strong rumors that the iPhone 5 is coming out this summer. There has not any confirmed technical specifications but there have been lots of guess like always. For example, it will be thinner and lighter than the current iPhone 4. The iPhone 5 will most likely have the same processor has the iPad 2 coming out this week which should add alot of CPU horse power allowing faster user interface and more complicated games and graphics.
What rumors have you heard? Post a link to any interesting speculative articles.
I was adding people to follow on my twitter account (jonatech) and started to notice something when I reviewed my tweets periodically – some tweeters are none stop. Are they serious? I would prefer a maybe at most 5 tweets from the people I follow on a daily basis. Otherwise, the tweets are just junk/spam and I just scroll right by them. Does anyone feel this way about other tweeters? I would love to hear or know what tweeters you’ve come across that just blasts you with BS.
I wanted to share the following article below with everyone. It has a great list of tools for different aspects of the web. It includes a list of tools for website development, search engine optimization, social media tools, and many other.
If you have other tools you’d like to share add it to the comments.

So which carrier do you think will better in the long run? AT&T looks desperate or worried with all the promotions and discounts they have on it.
I personally like Verizon even though they are a little more. I’m also a Droid user myself but the iPhone is always a great discussion. Share with others what you think…
This is going to be the 1st blog of many on how to get traffic to your website. People spend hundreds or thousands of dollars creating their website but overlook or forget how to drive website traffic. Just because you have a website doesn’t mean that traffic automatically comes. You can think of creating a new website like building your store in the middle of nowhere. How does anyone know it’s there? For a brick and mortar store, you add the store to the yellow pages right?
For websites you need to let search engines know. This means submitting your websites URL to each search engine’s submission pages. Here are the website submission links to the BIG THREE of Search Engines.
This would be step #1 and there’s a lot that should be done before this is done. First of all, your website development needs to be completed. You should not have any “Under Construction” pages for starts. You need to have done a first pass search engine optimization service. What this means depends on how well your website was developed or if you paid to have the site optimized as it was developed. This could mean unique titles for each page, alt text filled for images, main points on each page using H1 and H2 tags, etc. This might also mean having site maps created for search engine crawlers.
Right from the beginning, you need to have way to gauge, measure, and analyze your website traffic. There are many tools both commercial and free available but Google Analytics works great! What this tool will show you is howvmuch traffic is coming to your website, where is the website traffic coming from, what pages are being viewed, etc…Just to name a few of the features. If you have the time to learn this tool, it will prove in valuable to increasing traffic to your website…Of of course you can always hire a professional SEO company to set this up and watch it for you.
These are just some of the basic steps you need to do to start getting website traffic to your new website. I will write up more information and details in a follow-up blog.
If you are an SEO professional you know that SEO is constantly changing. There is so much information out there be it fact, opinions, and SEO techniques that it’s almost impossible to keep up with everything. So how do keep up? You find blogs on SEO that you like the best and visit them regularly if not daily. Let me share my favorite SEO blogs that I follow and are must for me.
