DescriptionAll of you guys have surely been in a situation where a tiny, insignificant part was missing from a gadget right? Frustratingly, it’s those tiny pieces that, when lost, cause total failure. This news clipping is an example of just that. A missing 1-inch cotter pin (a clip used to keep a bolt on) was missing on a Vancouver ferry resulted in a chain reaction where the ferry sped out of control into 24 boats docked at the Seweell Marina. A private contractor is to blame for the missing cotter pin.

Revolution Think Outside The Box

I don’t know why I am still hearing people say that Nintendo’s new home console, the Revolution, will be launching at the end of 2006. Nintendo has continuously stated that they will not be the last out of the gate this time, and the above image proves that.  They really need to stick to their guns this time, as a lot of their fans are done with the myriad of broken promises given by the Big N. I must say, the poster is sleek, and the whole “Think Outside The Box” thing works for me in a big way. Here’s to hoping they can pull it off.

Google Toolbar FirefoxThe Google Toolbar is now available for the Firefox browser on Windows, Mac, and Linux in 10 different languages. While it’s great to see Google finally jumping on the Firefox bandwagon, giving it support for what is arguably the most popular toolbar out there, I am really not all that excited. Firefox ships with a built-in pop-up blocker as well as a built-in Google search box. Does anyone really use all the rest of the features on the Google toolbar?

FeedShareVirtually every online merchant has an affiliate program these days. Even with a big shift in spending towards pay-per-click advertising, affiliate marketing has remained strong and is expected to grow by 30% over the next year (according to a Piper Jafrey analyst).

But offering your affiliates typical text/banner ads to promote your products is becoming less and less effective. An increasingly popular method of boosting affiliate performance has been the use of data feeds. Data feeds are basically data exports of a merchant’s inventory which affiliates use to create virtual store fronts. Many of the largest online retailers such as Amazon and Overture provide data feeds to their affiliates not only because they are a relatively inexpensive marketing tool but because they work.

A great article was in the Seattle Times, talking about Philip Kaplan and how he became an Internet millionaire while other dotcom companies were going bust left and right. Philip currently runs AdBrite, a site where anyone can buy adspace on any of the sites in AdBrite’s network. His original site, FuckedCompany.com (FC) is where he made it big.

After the company he worked for won a $1 million bid for a project he could do for a fraction of the cost, he says, he left to start his own company, PK Interactive, out of a rented loft. He soon had four employees and more business than he could handle, as clients desperate for Web sites came in promising big contracts.

“It got so ridiculous that I was like, there’s no way this is going to last,” he says.

Jow Kraus has put up a great article on why it is a great time to be an entrepreneur. If you think about it, it’s so true. Compared to just ten years ago, things are so much cheaper thanks to advanced technology and the open source movement. To give that more impact, Excite.com took $3,000,000 to get from idea to launch. JotSpot took $100,000. That means that Excite needed 30x more cash to reach their goal than JotSpot did. That is a big deal. Remember, it is a lot easier to raise $100,000 in capital than it is to raise a whole $3,000,000.

Infill In-Dash T3 PC

Posted by Sparky Categories: PC / Laptop,

Infill T3 In Dash PCHere at Gear Live we have waxed poetic about in car PC platforms before. When the Mac Mini was released the mod community thought for sure it would be showing up in cars everywhere. There has been some progress on that front, but not nearly enough. Luckily today Infill announced their in-dash car unit. The T3 will feature a 40GB HDD, TV tuner, GPS, a DVD drive (no burner?), and will be able to run Windows, Windows Media Center, or Linux. There will be an additional module to add a touch-screen available. No word on how much this bad boy of a case is going to cost (or when it will hit the States), but we want one!

LS800 Mini Tablet PCMotion Computing just released a drool-worthy device: The miniature TabletPC. The LS800 features an 8.4” TFT tablet screen packing a full Windows PC into something easy to carry from meeting to meeting to jot notes. Obviously there is no attached keyboard, but it works with either a BlueTooth or USB keyboard. Its small size is aimed at people looking for an ultra-portable for use with applications like OneNote. The LS800 has an Intel Centrino M 1.2GZ processor, SD, 802.11a/b/g, 512MB of ram, and a 20-60GB HDD. As much of an Apple kick as we have been on recently, I used to own a TabletPC and wouldn’t mind having one of these for taking to meetings at work or browsing the web with on the couch.
