Half Price iPads

If you are interested in getting an iPad I can get hold of them through a contact. The numbers are limited and he has 20 iPads going for less than half price – it’s first come first served.

He has already sold one (pic is attached below so you can see what you are getting – they are from a cancelled Health Services contract due to the cutbacks.) Get back to me as quick as you can if you want one.

How to save by shopping

This is an important post for anyone out there who loves to shop – this is how to prove that shopping saves!

The “logic” goes like this…

If you save $100 and spend $80 you are $20 ahead.

The less you spend compared to the amount you save the better.

So… here’s a real world example.

Today I purchased a pair of shoes. The original price was $155. I paid $50. I saved $105. This was $55 more than I spent. Thus I saved $55.

Voila!!! By purchasing that pair of shoes I have saved $55. That’s a pretty good result! Imagine how well off I’d be if I saved more, and did it every day…


Oops – Google gets it Wrong

I’ve been using Google translate for a while, it’s a simple interface but reasonably good for translating bits of text. One of the cool features is the ability to submit a better translation which is then used by Google to improve the service. When you submit a translation you’re told that it’s getting checked, which makes sense – someone needs to make sure you haven’t spelt it wrong, or worse.

But take a look at this – seems like not everything is getting checked properly. Of course, aside from the annoyance of the translation not being helpful, one has to ask what on earth the person who suggested that would get out of it – I mean, there’s no link or anything like that, it’s just a bunch of letters. No doubt some pimply greasy schoolboy somewhere is getting his jollies over that one!
