iTunes (finally) introduces Complete My Album

March 30, 2007 at 04:16 PM

On the couple dozen times I've bought songs from the iTunes Music Store, the fact that I'd have to rebuy the same songs again to complete an album definitely stopped me from buying any more tracks from the same albums. Now Apple has introduced "Complete My Album," their answer to this issue. You get $0.99 off for each song off an album you've already purchasing. Brilliant move.

The University of Texas at Austin does everything big, the RIAA has listed their top piracy schools and UT comes in at number nineteen. Personally, I think students just need to a better job not getting caught.

Watch March Madness on Demand

February 23, 2007 at 10:57 PM

Great service from the NCAA and CBS to show free streaming video of the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Great way to catch the basketball games live if you're at work or away from your TV for any other reason.

ProBlogger Darren Rowse's top money earners

February 11, 2007 at 10:03 PM

His top money earners on his websites include Chitika, AdSense, Text Link Ads, and Amazon Associates. I use all of those except Chitika with varying amounts of success. AdSense is easiest to use and most consistent but Text Link Ads could eventually be a big monthly income stream. Definitely have to try my luck with Chitika when I get around to redesigning this site.

General conclusion: The photo printing kiosks in the chain stores blow and Shutterfly and Snapfish are excellent if you can wait a little.

Engadget had 10 million page view on iPhone day

January 13, 2007 at 08:14 PM

Even at my crappy Adsense rate per page view that's probably $15,000 in revenue in one day. I wonder how much they were able to rake in?

With how much I was refreshing the Steve Jobs keynote I might have been 1,000 of those page views. (And I didn't click on a single advertisement.)

eBay is buying StubHub

January 11, 2007 at 08:58 PM

eBay is buying ticket resell site StubHub for $285 million. StubHub is a great way to get tickets to sporting events (a lot of season ticket holders sell their tickets when they can't get to games.) I love the way StubHub functions and don't really want another auction site, hopefully eBay doesn't try to merge the service into the main site. There's a market for both methods.

January 11, 2007 at 08:53 PM

"Parallel Worlds is a fully hacked version of Zelda 3 (aka A Link to the Past). A majority of the game has been changed. There may be a few rooms which can be said to be similar to some from the original game." New overworlds, new dungeons, new graphics, and more.

Another death blow to YouTube being remotely useful once all the copyright holders come through and clear out all the decent content.

StealItBack - Police Auctions Online

January 19, 2005 at 09:27 AM

It's like eBay, but with stolen crap. Once stolen property is not needed as evidence and if the rightful owners can't be found, former police officers Property Bureau purchase it and auction it off. One pretty cool feature:

Private citizens are invited to register on any items with serial numbers they have lost or reported stolen to their local police department. will search its database, and if an item has been received from a participating department, will return the item to the police department where the theft or loss was originally reported so that it may be returned to its rightful owner free of charge.

You can even find something for that special someone in your life.
