You’re a Big Fat Turkey!

Posted on November 26, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

Ok, so maybe this post should have had a title such as “Back From Thanksgiving Holidays” or “Monday Misc Ramblings” but I just felt like calling you a big fat turkey! At least it got your attention!

I hope everyone that participates had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. I had a good time eating more than I should and visiting family.

On a side note, how many of you did some BLACK FRIDAY shopping? I personally slept-in but my wife was up at 4am doing some shopping with the relatives. Lucky for me she didn’t end up buying too much.

I did end up buying a few things such as a new tennis racket from Amazon.

I also finally purchased an EVDO wireless plan from Sprint. I’ve been wanting that for awhile so I can access the internet in our car while we travel. I ultimately chose Sprint over Verizon because Verizon has stricter terms of service and bandwidth restrictions. My wireless card has not arrived yet so I have not been able to test the service yet. I also managed to save $10 monthly by using the Sprint SERO website. There is a good review of Sprint vs Verizon here.

Another thing I am also considering purchasing is a Garmin Nuvi 360 GPS.  After some research this seems to be the GPS I’m leaning towards. Amazon seems to have to have the best price at the moment. Do any of you use a car GPS? Which One?

Lastly, does anyone have a SlingBox? I’m not sure how well it would work but wouldn’t it be cool to use my Sprint EVDO plan with a Slingbox to watch TV in the car! Of course I’d have to let my wife do more of the driving! Has anyone tried this?


There was a pretty good response to my previous post where I asked “How Do You Explain Affiliate Marketing?”

Selecting a winner was kind of tough but I’m announcing JONK as the winner.

His reply was:

One sentence: “I get paid commissions to recommend other people’s products through my website.”

Three to five “I’ve built a website where I recommend other people’s products. Using special software, they track the visitors that go from my website to theirs and see if they are buying anything. If they do buy something, I receive a commission from that.”

Jonk, Contact Me and I’ll get the $20 paypal payment out to you.

I guess that’s all my ramblings for now! More coming soon. 🙂

    i tried using slingbox on my verizon i730 (pda phone). even with the EVDO, it kept on dropping the connection. but my phone always seemed to do (even when i’m not moving around) that to the point where i thought it was just the way it works.

    but my friend’s new verizon pda phone had no problems streaming in one location. haven’t tried it yet in the car.

    but yea…if the connection is steady, you can definitely watch tv in your car. lol.

    I was looking into wireless cards, but my travels are often to Europe. Sprint is the only Company that offers a card that works internationally. However, my provider is Verizon so i would have had to cancel that or pay for a new plan just to have that.

    I decided to just stick with hotspots while in Europe 🙂

    yep wireless is great. I i had to pick one technological investion this decade that has really changed the way in which we live our lives I would go for wireless technology. It just offers such flexibility and you can use it in hotls and resturants and bars across the world for free, because many provide free wireless networks.
