An Interesting New Way To Do Business On The Internet

An Interesting New Way To Do Business On The Internet

There is a new directory service on the internet right now that caters primarily to Canada. The way directories usually work is that a business own would submit their information to be included, once approved they would wait for customers to contact them after seeing their information on that directory. CFLLN works differently, you submit your personal information and then a local business contacts you. For instance, say you were interested in being contacted by a Mississauga divorce lawyer, you would submit your information and a family law expert from that area would contact you. A very interesting system that takes the hunting part of looking for services out of the customer’s hands. A very well designed site too.

One Thing That Makes Getting Outdoors Easier

One Thing That Makes Getting Outdoors Easier

Life is busy these days, between work and activities, we’re all short on extra time for relaxing. You add to that the fact that sometimes we avoid doing things because we don’t want to miss our favorite television shows and there’s a problem. Well, one thing that makes it easier to get outdoors is having a TiVo recorder. With a TiVo recorder you can record all your favorite shows so you can watch them later and use that time to get outdoors now.

In truth, you can use this extra time for more work, yard work, family time, or whatever you’d like. It’s nice to see a gadget that actually frees up time instead of consumes more of it.

Check out ABTelectronics for gadgets like this and more. ABT has a great user-friendly website and have been in business for over 70 years. Buying from them is a real pleasure.

Lodging Resource For Local And Far Away

Going out of town, whether it’s for a week or just a weekend, can be an incredible stress reliever. At the same time it has just as much chance to be highly stressful. One of the most stressful parts of planning a trip is the travel methods and lodging decisions you have to make. Making reservations in time, what about late changes to your travel plans, plus a hundred other things that can come up all mean it’d be worthwhile having as much information as possible when it is time to plan your trip.

In the interest of getting all the travel information you can, here’s a nice site that gives you access to some of the smaller lodging options that aren’t always used by the big online hotel reservation sites. It contains information on every state in the US, so no matter if you’re looking for Vermont lodging, Connecticut lodging, or any other state – it looks like they might be able to take care of your overnight stays.

There is even a page covering Washington lodging that has some Wenatchee area motels in it. It’s great for short trips away from home or for those family members who live outside the area and are coming back for the holidays. It’s a nice option if you’re in a pinch and need some Virginia lodging information… or, if you just need some overnight options here in our own neck of the woods.

Cell Phone Company Provides Creative Outlet

A very cool new opportunity for cell phone users is out there; well it is available at this time for only users of Virgin Mobile. Two of the more popular accessories for cell phones are ringtones (the music you can set to play when someone calls your phone) and wallpaper (the displayed image on the cell phone’s screen behind the text). But, what about those people that want to express a little more of their creativity and not follow the herd with the latest ringtone or wallpaper.

Virgin Mobile is offering the opportunity for people to create their own ringtones and wallpaper, and then use them on their own phones. Someone could call a cell phone user and instead of a ring or a generic ringtone, that user’s own musical composition would play. Additionally, a cell phone user could use a digital version of their own piece of artwork as their wallpaper – it’s hard for a cell phone to be more personalized than that.

Those features alone make this new technology service outstanding, but there is more. Virgin Mobile is also making it possible for the creator of these ringtones and wallpapers to share them with other users. Other users could download a ringtone or wallpaper for them to use, and in exchange the creator would receive ten cents credited to their account. A prolific creator might be able to have their entire cell phone bill paid for by others downloading and using their creative output. This program should appeal greatly to anyone involved in mobile website design or wap site design.

The more technology develops, especially in the wireless network and wireless device arena, the more we are going to see offers like these. The future is wireless – and the creative people will be leading the way.
