Casio CFX-40 Scientific Calculator Watch – Forgotten Electronics

If there’s a consistently hot digital watch on Ebay, it may as well be a scientific calculator watch. Unfortunately, this isn’t a personal brag, but there’s an Ebay seller who enjoyed a little extra spending cash at this past Christmas. He found this watch at a flea market, spent a couple bucks on a battery, and cashed in for over $400 on Ebay! It may sound like one of those auction anomalies, but time after time we’ve seen these things get big bucks. With an original retail of under $40, you may have a nice little investment on your hands. And hopefully not your wrist. Remember, the better the condition, the bigger the take!Calculator Watch

PC Decrapifier — I Love That Name!

Bovada Poker With Welcome Bonus

PC Decrapifier, For *NEW* XP & Vista machines ONLY

So, you’re the proud owner of a new PC. You anxiously open the box, dumping out the contents, casting the instructions aside. You feverishly push your old PC off the desk and get the new one set up. On the floor lies a pile of plastic wrap and twist ties. Your brand spanking new PC boots up only to greet you with a plethora of pop up advertisements pestering you to pay for anti-virus software or sign up for a music service. Your desktop is littered with website links for ‘special offers.’ The system tray is already full of programs that continuously use your internet connection to make sure that you’re ‘up to date.’

“When did I ask for this?” you ask. Well, you didn’t and that’s where the PC Decrapifier comes in. The PC Decrapifier attempts to remove all of the crap on your PC that you never asked for or wanted. To manually remove all of this stuff by hand can take at least an hour (depending on the severity of the infestation.) The PC Decrapifier will detect the ‘crap’ on your system, you choose what to uninstall, then sit back and let the PC Decrapifier work its magic.

All of this stuff is placed on your new PC because the big companies like Dell, HP and others sell advertising space on your PC to put more money in their pockets at the expense of your time and frustration.

The PC Decrapifier is a program free for personal use to help the average computer user combat this problem. It is also available for PC technicians at a small fee to use as a tool in their everyday business to save a tremendous amount of time.

It will not begin removing anything without prompting you first! You get to see the list of items it detects and then choose what will be removed automatically.

The PC Decrapifier will uninstall many of the common trialware and annoyances found on many of the PCs from big name OEMs.

Below is the current list of software and items that the PC Decrapifier can detect and remove.

Do You Use iGoogle?

I do, and I am really liking the RSS feeds that I can place on my homepage. Here is what my current iGoogle page looks like. I am debating on what I could do with the tabs I can add. I guess I could put my favorite RSS feeds on a tab of their own…

What does yours look like?

What are some of your favorite widgets?
