HTC Desire - A Great Smartphone Alternative

One of the first things to strike you about the HTC Desire is its appearance. It is a phone which is very distinctive thanks to its large size which is necessary to house the large 3.7 inch touchscreen which dominates the front of the phone.

The HTC Desire could be considered as a twin device to the HTC Google Nexus One, which has a number of features which appear similar. The finish of the HTC Desire is smooth to the touch thanks to its almost suede like coating. This gives it a feel of both luxury and durability. Appearance wise, the major difference between the Desire and the Nexus One is the mechanical buttons at the base of the screen. These include home, menu, back and search buttons as well as an optical trackpad. The latter offers an alternative method of navigating options and menus in the HTC Sense UI.

Weighing in at 135 grams, the HTC Desire is relatively lightweight, and although it is a large phone, all parts of the screen can easily be reached with your thumb.

The operating system of choice is v2.1 Android, which is the same as its sister HTC handsets the Wildfire and Legend, and similarly sports HTC’s custom user interface called Sense, which gives the phone high levels of customisation. This user interface is great for casual everyday users and offers a more stylish and customisable experience than the standard Android UI, whilst providing a level of customisation which advanced users and technology enthusiasts are sure to appreciate.

FriendStream is an App which combines FaceBook, Twitter and Flickr into a single screen, allowing users to view data sorted by friends rather than by the source. This is a great way of keeping in touch and up to date with friends and family. The UI also features seven customisable homescreens which can be assigned to a particular app. To choose one, users simply have to pinch the screen which displays thumbnails of the screens, and only requires a single further tap to open them.

Of course the HTC Desire also boasts a seemingly endless spec list which offers features such as a 5MP video camera, Wi-Fi internet access, and a versatile media player with plenty of internal storage (including expandable micro SD storage) for data such as music tracks. It is the combination of impressive hardware and highly customisable yet easy to use software which makes the HTC Desire one of the most popular smartphones on the market today and it looks set to become increasingly popular. This is because the HTC Sense UI is constantly improving and evolving with every update, and users can get their hands on all this technology for a surprisingly low price.

TiVo is just a DVR � How Direct TV and Others Packaged A Product for Success

Studying the way Direct tv packaged and positioned TiVo for success in a competitive market can indicate principles for successful marketing for small or home businesses. This article looks at TiVo’s success and discusses the marketing principles that made it work.

TiVo, the poster child of technological advancement for companies like Direct tv, is really nothing more than a middle-aged woman in a designer dress – with plastic surgery. The technology behind TiVo is really just a tweaked DVR, or digital video recorder. Other companies have it; but no other company has built as successful marketing package around their product as has Direct TV with TiVo.

What is TiVo, um, I mean a Digital Video Recorder?

Digital Video Recorders capture video in a way similar to old video recorders, but they do it digitally. Watchers can “pause and rewind live TV” because the speed and response time of DVRs, like TiVo, provide for a virtually seamless transition from live TV to recorded material. Based on user settings, up to 80 hours of television can be recorded. This can include your favorite show each week, or you can record everything you watch to make sure you don’t miss anything. Remember, every DVR can do this, not just TiVo.

The difference is the way Direct TV has partnered with TiVo and positioned it for success in the highly competitive market of satellite television and accessories. The true success of TiVo’s marketing strategy lies in the fact that many people believe it is a unique product.

With product lines in competitive markets, positioning and packaging is king. Direct TV touts TiVo in nearly every major marketing campaign they put together. They offer discount TiVo technologies to new customers who are willing to commit to a one-year contract. My guess is that if you have ever heard of Direct TV and seen any advertisement they have produced, you have been exposed to the TiVo name and features.

Have You Ever Heard of Tevas?

The three strap sandals that have come in and out of fashion over the last few decades are now known almost universally as “Tevas.” Chalk up a point for the company Teva that created and marketed their sandals extremely successfully. When was the last time you had jello (actually a name brand of gelatin desert), or used a Kleenex (trademarked name for a tissue)? Do you ask for a “Coke” no matter what flavor of soda it is? The list goes on and on, including the most recent tendency to refer to all DVR technology as “TiVo.”

What are you going to do about it?

If you own a small business or operate one out of your home, you might not be running your own unique product line. But if you do, what are you doing to package it and position it for success? Consider doing the following:

• Name your product or service. It may sound silly, like naming your car “Betsy” or “Lechuga,” but a name is an essential part of successful repackaging. This is what TiVo did when they renamed their DVR technology. Rather than call it a car wash, try something like “Dirty Mike’s 15-Point SuperClean.” Maybe five years from now people will say they need a “superclean” instead of saying they need a “carwash.” Keep reading below for legal considerations.

• Before you start using a new slogan or title, double check to make sure another company does not already own the trademark or copyright. The last thing you want to do (or pay for) when you own a small business is a lengthy legal process over something you could have avoided had you done the research.

• Get legal protection for your products, names, and slogans. At the same time you are doing your research, register your trademarks, copyrights, and where appropriate your patents. Registering your intellectual property with the government will go a long way when it comes time to stop others from infringing on your company name or intellectual rights.

Cleaning Tips For An LCD TV

The tv has, for along time, been one of the centre points of a home. And now there are few homes with only one tv most have at least 2 or more. But the main TV, the one which the family sits in front of as a unit, is usually the large LCD TV. Watching any TV through a film of dust and grime is no fun, especially so if it is an LCD TV with great high definition picture quality. Luckily cleaning the screen of an LCD TV is a simple job that you can do yourself as and when you need to without having to wait for your home cleaner to come and do it for you.

Before you begin make sure your TV is switched off and, as an added precaution, unplugged. Not only is this safer for you and the TV, its easier to see the dust and fingerprints on the screen if it is dark. Also check your owner's manual for cleaning instructions and if anything there is contrary to what follows, go with the manufacturer's recommendations.

Start by using a clean chamois cloth to wipe the dust from the screen. Remember never press too hard on the LCD screen or you may damage it. Next mix two cups of room temperature distilled water with two cups of ordinary vinegar. Use only distilled water as it will have no mineral deposits to stain the screen. Stir until the solution is completely mixed.

Dip a clean soft cloth in a general domestic cleaning solution and wring it out till it is just damp. Wipe the screen gently with the cloth making sure that you do not touch any part of the screen with your hands. Again remember not to press too hard. Wipe the screen first in a left to right movement and then in a top to down one. Let the screen air dry and look for any spots or stains that may remain. Wet the cloth again, wring it out and gently rub the stained areas to clean them. Once again let the screen air dry before turning the TV on.

Be careful that the cloth you use is only damp and no more. If any liquid should get on the screen and flow down, if may enter the electronics and damage the TV.

To clean the rest of the TV, use a gentle spray of house cleaning making sure that the spray does not enter any of the ventilation openings on the sides or rear of the TV.

Ultralux FX - Cable Descramblers and How they Work

When a descrambler is added to the Cable Converter Box in the same chassis, or in the case of the Ultralux FX, it is an all in 1 unit that does it all, it is referred to as a Converter/Descrambler or sometimes a Combination Unit, and is a type of Set-top box, it allows : local broadcast channels, basic cable channels, authorized premium channels, "Pay-Per-View" (PPV), and "Video On Demand" (VOD) services to be viewed. A Combination Converter/Descrambler is generally called a Set-top box or STB it is a single (one-piece) system installed in a single cabinet and represents a single component that is capable of descrambling premium services, like HBO or Showtime, pay-per-view cable channels., Video on Demand, Games or other specialty pay services, and transposes the cable signal for RF output on channel 3 or 4. This unit contains a converter and a descrambler, enclosed in a common box and outputs the signal directly to your tv, VCR, DVR, PC, DVD or video projector.

If you want to understand the way a cable descrambler or a cable network works, we are here to explain the simple reason behind the image on your tv set.

In order for you to have crystal clear image on your TV set, a cable network is the first necessary thing. Cable TV companies install cable lines all over cities, running from one neighbourhood to another, from one house to another. All these cables are forming the cable network, through which the TV signal is permanently running. That fact that a cable has TV signals running through it at all times doesn't necessarily mean that you will have image on your TV channels. Every cable company is protecting its incomes and profit by using a simple method: scrambling all the TV signals that run through the cable lines. This is the reason why you have image on your TV and your neighbour doesn't see a thing on his TV set, although you both own the same cable equipment. The cable company has descrambled the TV signal for you, but not for your neighbour. And by installing a cable descrambler< in every house, this problem is fixed. Every client has a cable descrambler>/a> attached to the TV set, but not all of them are activated. When you pay the cable bill, the cable TV company is sending information through the cable line that is activating your cable descrambler. And this is how you get image on your TV.

If you are wondering why a cable company is scrambling the TV signal, well the answer to this question is simple: money. Cable TV companies, as any other company, want to have profit. They can not have this unless they charge a fee paid by their clients. If they hadn't scrambled the signal running through their cable network, every person would have had image on their TV set without paying a dime. Therefore, the TV signal is scrambled.

So, a Ultralux FX cable descrambler is a device that is transposing the TV signal into image. Cable companies use ultralux fx cable descramblers for pay-per-view and premium channels too.

The HTC Desire HD Is An Impressive Looking Android Smartphone

HTC has launched both the Desire Z and also the Desire HD. The latter has a huge 4.3 " touch screen, eight mega-pixel camera, very fast web browsing and an abundance of multimedia functions.

Supported by the newest Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating system along with a 1 GHz processor chip, the HTC Desire is among the most feature rich mobile phones available, and looks placed to present a significant threat to the popular smart phone models.

Measuring up at 123x 68x 11.8 mm to be able to cater to the big touchscreen, it's a somewhat slimline phone which is also light-weight at a pocket friendly 164 g. The S-LCD capacitive touch screen is fantastic for viewing photos and videos because of its significant size of 4.3 in. as well as being able to show as much as 16 million colours inside the 480x 800 pixel configuration. Accelerometer and proximity sensors are built in the phone and there's a touch sensitive shortcut panel providing shortcuts for interface navigation.

The very tweakable HTC Sense interface enables users to allocate as many as 7 home screens by setting up various icons and programs together with themes or templates & colour schemes. Through pinching the display, a thumbnail overview of the homescreens will be displayed with the preferred one chosen by simply pressing the picture on screen.

1.5 Gigabyte of built in storage space enables consumers to store data files including audio tracks as well as videos. To be able to obtain extra storage space, the HTC Desire HD offers an integrated microSD card slot which may be utilized by simply putting in a memory card as high as 32 gigabytes. This provides the possibility to store a whole digital music collection as well as plenty of video clips etc.

mobile networks are connected to because of class 32 versions of both GPRS & EDGE while access to the web depends primarily on 3G coverage where an HSDPA connection gives rates as high as 14.4 Megabyte per second together with HSUPA at 5.76 Megabyte per second. To be able to obtain a quicker Web connection, nearby Wireless Networks may be utilized because of full Wi-Fi connectivity. The arrangement of connectivity functions is rounded off with Bluetooth, micro USB & GPS with A-GPS assistance.

The HTC Desire HD offers a notable eight mega-pixel digital camera built-in that leads to outstanding quality pictures that even keep their high amounts of detail and quality when zoomed in because of the large pixel count and its pixel res of 3264x 2448. Auto-focus, face recognition software along with a dual-LED flash are provided in order to make simpler the duty of taking photos whilst at the same time enhancing the quality. The capability to capture High definition videos is incorporated as standard because of 720p video camera technology.

Avoiding Undesired Hassles In Satellite TV Offers

There are tons of scams in satellite tv online business. To avoid these nightmares, satellite tv shoppers should always order Dish Network or DirecTV deals from the right satellite TV dealers and avoid ordering programming channels that you do not need.

The right satellite TV dealers

A reliable satellite TV dealer is most crucial in getting a good satellite TV deal. Picking up the right dealer can earn you a bargain in the deal; however bumping into an inexperience dealer or scammers will definitely bring nightmares to you.

Often, satellite TV scammers claim that they offer the best satellite dish deals and promotions. They might offer fake promise on their deals, extremely low monthly subscription rates, next-day installation, and unlimited number of free satellite systems to lure satellite TV shoppers. But once customers signed up, they find hidden activation fees, high shipping costs for free extras, installation dates continuously missed or pushed back, as well as outrageous cancellation fees.

In order to avoid such hassles, I suggest shoppers to shop only from reliable satellite TV dealers.

But, how can you know it’s a reliable dealer?

The Internet gives us the convenience to research about the satellite TV dealers. Learn about the background of those dealers before you key in your credit card info: Are they an authorized dealer? Are they in business for long enough? Are they offering secure order page if they offer online purchase? How is the customer feedback on their services? Do they provide customer services via phone calls? Is the order 100% guaranteed with full refunds?

The right programming package

If you are going after Dish Network, standard programming packages are American’s Top 60, 120, 180, and Everything Pak, price ranged from around $30 to $90; DirecTV standard programming packages are DirecTV Total Choice standard, Plus, and Premier, price ranged from around $40 to $90. If you are not sure on which programming package to go for, I suggest you to compare them by visiting satellite TV consumer website at 

What should be in your mind when selecting satellite TV programs is that you should select the programming package that is suitable for you, not the programming packages that given with freebies. Do not blind by retailer's promotional words and order things that you do not need.

Conclusion: Don't get satellite TV!

Yes, don’t get satellite TV, if you do not need TV that much. (Perhaps this is the best way to avoid satellite TV scams.)

Without a doubt satellite TV deals are quite a bargain when compare to the cables. The free satellite systems sounds very good bargains; the low price 250+ programming packages sounds unbelievable cheap; the live sport events heat up your sport-nerves. But, do you need TV that much? Or you are actually good enough with the local channels? I think satellite TV deals are very good bargains, I recommend you to switch to satellite TV if you have other paid TV services, but I also strongly suggest that you spend wisely and get only what you need.

    How Can I See My Husband's Deleted Cell Phone Text Messages?

    Copyright (c) 2010 Ed Opperman

    Deleted cell phone text messages are not gone forever. Now whether this is good news or bad news depends entirely on your situation. If you're a philandering husband who's been cheating with someone other than your wife, this is bad news. I'm looking at you, Tiger Woods.

    On the other hand, if you're on the other side of the fence, a wife who suspects her husband has been unfaithful, then this is good news. This is good news because it means that he can't pull the wool over your eyes and just delete the incriminating texts and act as if nothing is going on.

    In fact, these days, deleted cell phone text messages are some of the best evidence of a cheating husband because they aren't so easy to delete. Even if your husband is clever enough to use some kind of code to disguise the true nature of the texts, the fact that he is deleting them means he feels the need to hide something.

    Cell phones have made our lives easier in a myriad of ways, which is generally a good thing. What is not a good thing, though, is how easy they have made cheating. They allow communication between the people cheating in situations where it is easy to hide the communication, and they allow them to avoid being caught in places where they shouldn't be.

    Text messages are probably the best thing to happen to cheating husbands since the cheap motel. You can send messages on the sly, in full view of your wife, you can get message discretely and then get rid of any trace of the incriminating evidence.

    Except you can't. Not really. One unknown truth of any kind of electronic device that has a memory is that whatever is on is on it forever. That means that deleted cell phone text messages are still probably in there to be found. You can retrieve text messages long after they've been deleted.

    What you need to do is get your husband's phone and take it to someone well versed in cell phone forensics. A digital recovery specialist is going to be well versed in getting into the guts of a cell phone and pulling out every dirty little secret that's on it.

    If you're looking to see your husband's deleted cell text messages, then this is absolutely the way to go. It's fast, effectively and does no damage to the cell phone and it will give the answers you're looking to know what your husband is up to.

    Satellite Dish TV - Renters 5 things you need to know before buying satellite tv

    1. Satellite Dish tv Rules and Regulations

    If the landlord doesn’t approve and permit satellite dish tv, under the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) rules and regulations, renters have the right to install dish antennas in permissible areas. The FCC ruled that landlords do not have the right to prevent installation, maintenance, or use of a satellite dish to receive video programming such as satellite TV.

    Under the FCC guidelines, renters are allowed a satellite dish in exclusive areas designated to be used by the tenant, but not in common areas. Renters are permitted to install satellite dish television in their own exclusive areas such as their balcony, patio, or other areas that they have exclusive right to use. Renters are restricted to install satellite dishes in common areas that are generally used by other tenants such as shared balconies, patios, and roof decks.

    For single family homes and leasehold properties, satellite dish TV may be installed in areas that are part of the leased space which includes inside or outdoor areas. A Satellite dish may be installed upon the home itself or other leasehold property such as outdoor gardens, patios, yards, or other areas accessible to leaseholder’s exclusive use.

    For apartment buildings, rules do not apply to common areas such as roofs, exterior walls, or other areas accessible to other tenants. In this case renters may install a dish inside or on their balcony.

    2. Satellite Dish TV Restrictions

    • Size of satellite dish - The size of the satellite dish antennas must be one meter or less (39.7") in diameter. The standard 18" and 20" dish antennas from dish network and directv comply with this rule.
    • Safety restrictions - There are safety restrictions for a dish satellite being on a fire escape or violating any fire or safety codes. Dish satellites are to be a certain distance away from any power lines.
    • Historic preservation - Satellite dishes are restricted from Historic preservation properties that have a prehistoric or historic district and are registered in the National Registers of historic places.
    • Damage restrictions - There are damage restrictions for having a satellite dish when necessary to prevent property damage such as drilling holes to exterior walls or roofs. Check with installer for installing without holes.

    3. Satellite TV Home Compatibility

    Outdoors are recommended to get a clear reception. If you are a renter who does not have access to outdoor areas, you may still install a satellite dish TV inside near a window or on a balcony facing south. In order for you to receive satellite television broadcast signals, the satellite dish must be placed facing view of southern exposure that is unobstructed from any large trees, buildings, or other large object that may block and diminish quality of reception.

    If you are a renter who doesn’t face southern skies, you can talk to your landlord to workout finding a place to install your satellite dish. You also need to obtain consent prior to installing when installing in common areas. If you do have such an area to install satellite television, the landlords may not charge extra rent, fees, or make you sign a satellite dish addendum mid-lease to have a satellite dish.

    4. Satellite Dish Installation

    Most satellite dish providers provide free professional installation. So you won’t have to worry about mounting the dish. You may use a clamp or a tripod in order not to make any holes in exterior walls. Tripods should be set up in areas that are not in high traffic areas of walking or people bumping into it. The antennas are sensitive to any movement that may throw off your reception signal which you would have to readjust and reposition tripod to catch signal again.

    5. Satellite TV Reception

    To make sure you get the most optimum picture quality, connect the receiver directly to the TV and not to the VCR/DVR to receiver. Once your satellite dish is in a secure place of any movement and in a clear view of southern skies; rain, snow or wind won’t usually affect or interfere with the satellite dish reception signal.

    Just what is the Big difference Between Internet Ready TV and Google Television?

    Interactive tv has been a phrase used to describe a lot of new technologies from TIVO to Sling Box. Two of the latest technologies that allow you to get more from your tv than mere channel hopping are Google TV and Internet Ready TV. Both mean hooking up a TV to broadband internet and getting material from the internet on your TV screen but what are the differences and are either worth the investment?

    Google TV offers full internet access on your TV. There are only two ways to get it at the moment. One is to install the Logitech 'Revue' between a cable or satellite box and the TV. If you don't have cable or satellite it won't work. The other is to buy a Sony blu-ray player with the hardware for Google TV built in. Both of these systems offer controllers with QWERTY keyboards. The Logitech Revue offers a full size keyboard, the Sony system uses a mini keyboard.

    If these ways of getting the internet on your TV seem strange, it is because cable and satellite corporations have strongly resisted Google in the past and this is a compromise. You can get the service now but you can't abandon cable or satellite easily.

    The critics have not been too enthusiastic about Google TV. Most say it is not ready for primetime, with a clunky interface and too many delays and glitches. People like Steve Jobs of Apple think Google TV has nothing to offer and has no future. So should it be written off? It is way too early for that. Many new technologies struggle at the beginner as problems emerge and are gradually solved. There has also been a steady uptake of the service and many people like the extra choice it can bring to the big screen HDTVs they have invested in.

    Internet Ready TV certainly does not offer full access to the web on your TV, despite the name. What it does offer is a lot of services that are internet based and that will appeal to TV viewers. The most important of these is streaming video and music from services like Amazon and Netflix.

    You can also get access to thousands of sites with news, travel, shopping and weather reports available. Yahoo TV widgets is probably the best service and is available on most Internet Ready TVs. It gives access to Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites, amongst other things.

    How do you get internet ready TV?

    It could hardly be simpler. Most of the high end, bigger TV's being sold this year are Internet Ready models. Connect the TV to your broadband internet by WIFi or Ethernet cable and the service is ready.

    Is there a drawback to Internet Ready TV and Google TV?

    Some civil liberties groups point out that all the information on user's habits is available to be collected by agencies and companies of all kinds. This is more likely to be companies wanting to target advertising and products rather than shadowy government agencies. For privacy minded individuals it might still be a concern.

    Cheating Your Engine�s Planned Obsolence That Was Created By Its Manufacturer

    I’m sure by now you’ve heard the term “Extended Drain Interval” for your vehicle’s oil change. If you’ve ever been to a place like Jiffy Lube or other quick lube shop, you’ve probably seen some big sign outside telling you to come back every 3,000 miles for an oil change – quite the opposite of the “extended drain interval”. Jiffy Lube promotes the short, 3,000 mile oil drain interval. Did you know that according to Marc Graham, the president of Jiffy Lube, if they could convince you to change your oil at 2,900 miles instead of 3,000, Jiffy Lube could earn an extra $20 million dollars per year? And if they could get one more oil change per year out of every customer, that would pocket them a whopping $294 million per year?

    All the quick lubes and dealers tell me to change it every 3,000.

    Well, let’s look at some numbers. For example, let’s say a married couple with a coule kids have two vehicles in their family. Both of them drive an average of about 18,000 miles per year each commuting back and forth to work, running errands, taking their kids to events and all the normal stuff a family does.

    For our example, let’s say each vehicle takes 5 quarts to fill, plus the oil filter. With 18,000 miles per year, that’s 6 oil changes per year per vehicle based on the 3,000 mile returns. So every year, both vehicles are going through 60 quarts of oil per year and 12 oil filters. In 5 years each vehicle has driven approximately 90,000 miles (which some of you probably know quite a few people who’ve driven this far in only 3 years!) That’s 60 quarts x 5 years = 300 quarts of oil and 60 oil filters for both vehicles. In 5 years, both cars have been to the quick lube about 60 times. I’ve seen the price of an oil change go anywhere between $19.00 and $28.50 at various Jiffy Lubes around the country. Let’s say an average of $25 per oil change. Over 5 years for this couple, they’ve spent about $1,500 or so in oil changes for average quality, NON-PREMIUM, NON-SYNTHETIC oil. For the $25 they are spending on each vehicle, they are getting plain old mineral oil or in other words, dead dinosoar juice taken from pertrolium, most likely imported from outside of the country.

    What other choice do you have? Everyone has told you to change your oil at 3,000 miles. So paying all that money and taking all that time to drive down and have the oil changed is just part of life? Right?

    Well, not really. You have a much better alternative. You have the option to perform extended drain intervals and save yourself a lot of money to boot!

    So what’s the story with an extended drain interval?

    Change your oil every 25,000 to 35,000 miles?

    WHAT?! Are you crazy?

    Well, if you tried doing this with the current oil you’re using now, yes, you would be crazy. The oil mineral oil you’re using is not designed to be driven that long. Not long after you start driving, the conventional mineral oil and it’s own low-cost additives break down fairly quickly. Remember, it’s in the Quick Lube’s best interest for it to break down so that way you can hurry up and GET BACK THERE FOR ANOTHER OIL CHANGE! Remember how much the oil companies make from your repeat businessÂ… especially if you come in an extra 100 miles earlier.

    Okay, so what’s all of this information on extended drain intervals and how do you do it?

    Well first, you cannot perform extended drain intervals on your current mineral oil. If you want to be able to SAFELY and RELIABLY drive up to 25,000 or 35,000 miles on the same oil without changing it, then you need an oil which is DESIGNED to be run for this extended period of time and distance. Just like they make tires which only last 20,000 miles and some last up to 80,000 miles depending on the rubber compounds, oil also works in a somewhat similar way.

    For an oil to last for such a long period of time, it needs to be fully synthetic and only use the best base stocks in order for it to not break down. The first company to come out with fully synthetic oil for an automobile is the AMSOIL Corporation. They started making synthetic oil for cars way back in 1972, many, many years before mobil, Castrol, Shell, Exxon, Havoline, Redline, Royal Purple or any other popular American oil company started doing it. Being that they were the first ones to start out with it, they obviously have the most experience with creating a quality synthetic oil.

    Remember that same couple who used 300 quarts of oil on mineral oil and 60 filters over the 5 years, if they used AMSOIL instead they could have driven the exact same mileage on ONLY about 60 quarts of oil and 10 oil filters. That would have saved them about 240 quarts of oil and 50 oil filters. And on top of that, have a much cleaner engine with a lot less wear and tear and added anywhere between 3 and 8% on top of their fuel economy.

    Wow! Drive 35,000 miles (or even more with oil analysis)Â… isn’t that a little far to go? You’ve got to be pulling my leg. Won’t that stuff cook my engine? I don’t want to void the warranty on my car!

    Absolutely not! There are tons of testimonies of people driving beyond 35,000 miles on the same oil.

    For example, read about a trucker who went over 400,000 miles on the SAME OIL – YES! He drove with NO OIL CHANGES on the SAME OIL in the crankcase:

    How was this accomplished? Is this some kind of magic trick? Can you just put this oil in and forget about it? No! Absolutely not! You cannot do that or you would certainly have engine problems. The AMSOIL oil stays in, but in order to go as far as the trucker did with 400,000 miles, he had to use an optional dual-filtration kit. The dual-filters are so powerful, they can filter out dirt at about the size of 1 micron (that’s about the size of a blood cell in your bodyÂ… very, very tiny!)

    And not only can you drive farther on the same oil, you also get much, much less wear and tear on your engine’s internal components due to the high performing PAO base stocks, anti-foaming and anti-sludge and other incredible properties. It keeps your oil almost like new. To see this a diagram of how this dual-oil filter connects on your car, look at this web site:

    Worried about my vehicle manufacturer’s warranty? Not to fret! It’s been covered!

    Does this mean I have to install these special dual-filters if I want to drive that 25,000 or 35,000 miles?

    No. AMSOIL also makes a filter called a “SUPER DUTY FILTER” which is designed to last up to 12,500 miles before needing changing (and lasts about 4 times longer than what you find at the auto parts store.). From the outside, it looks just like the oil filter you’re using now. So if you used AMSOIL 10W30 oil and drove 25,000 miles in one year, you only have to use 2 of these regular-looking screw on filters for the entire year. If you used conventional oil and filters, you’d have to change the filter 8 times for the same amount of miles, easily costing MUCH MORE than using AMSOIL’s products, not to mention the poorer fuel economy you’d be getting from not having that reduced friction from an AMSOIL synthetic.

    You’re probably in disbelief. This AMSOIL stuff almost sounds too good to be true.

    OkayÂ… Let's say Amsoil didn't deliver as promised. Let's also assume for one minute that it's crazy, a lie... false and deceptive advertising... whatever you want to call it. You’ve already heard and seen every scam on the Internet.

    Think about it. Don't you imagine for a minute that Mobil, Royal Purple, Redline, Castrol, Shell Oil or Exxon wouldn't be all over AMSOIL in a court of law sueing for FALSE ADVERTISING if this stuff didn’t really work? All of them would love to see their competition go out of business. Wouldn't you, if you were an competing oil manufacturer?

    If the back of the bottle of Amsoil 0W-30 says, "extended drain intervals for up to 35,000 miles or one-year" don't you really think that the oil should be GUARANTEED to last that long? And if not, wouldn't there be a class action law suit against AMSOIL after thousands of people from all over the USA and Canada would complain about problems?

    The 0W-30 oil that’s capable of such long, 35,000 mile drain intervals is here:

    For certain, one could visit (Federal Trade Commission for Consumer Protection) and type in: AMSOIL

    If AMSOIL didn’t work as stated, you would see law suits from the FTC for false advertising and AMSOIL would be fined some big hefty fines for making such claims and pretty much go out of business.

    Don't believe me? Visit the FTC's web site right now and search on these WELL-KNOWN companies that you’ve probably heard of or used yourself (or may be using right now) over the last several years and see the kinds of trouble you can get into:

    Now search on Federal Trade Commission’s web site for AMSOIL and see what comes up:

    Wow... funny how there is not ONE single FTC charge for deceptive or misleading advertising for AMSOIL.

    See... if you print a claim on the back of a bottle or package of a product, IT BETTER PERFORM AS DESCRIBED or the whole world will know you are a deceiving the public and class action law suits will clearly be found on the Internet.

    Remember, AMSOIL has been making synthetic oil since 1972 for automobiles, LONG BEFORE any other major competing oil company, hence their trademark, "FIRST IN SYNTHETICS".

    Pick up any bottle of any competing brand of oil and read the back. Notice that they don't make any claims that can't be verified. If Mobil was formulated that good where it could last up to 35,000 miles, don't you think for a minute that they would advertise that all over the place? Of course it doesn't last that long, so they can't make that kind of claim, otherwise AMSOIL, some other motor oil competitor, or consumers would be putting them in court for false, deceptive advertising.

    More than likely you've been surfing the web and looking at all kinds of competing brands of oil for your car, motorcycle, RV, snowmobile or what have you. You've probably read all kinds of hype about different oils or additives. One thing you'll notice different about AMSOIL is that the TECHNICAL PROPERTIES are CLEARLY and PROUDLY listed so you can see how well the oil performs.

    Don’t you find it strange that the competing oil companies don’t proudly post their performance information on their own motor oil in the same fashion that AMSOIL does? What are they hiding? What do they seem to be embarassed about? Are they are hoping that maybe by spending millions of dollars on repetative advertising so you hear their name over and over, you'll buy it just on being familiar with the name, not necessary for how well it performs.

    You'll notice that AMSOIL doesn't spend millions of dollars on advertising. Instead, all of the money is put into the quality of the oil. Their advertising is free when people win championships in racing and AMSOIL’s logo is put in color pictures in various magazines. That’s one of the reasons you haven’t seen full page ads wasted on advertising.

    When is the last time you saw Ferrari or Lamborghini running huge campaigns to try to sell their cars? Yet you see full page advertisements for Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Chrysler, Mazda and many other manufacturers in magazines all the time.

    Does that mean Toyota, Honda or Hyundai are inferior or low quality just because they spend millions on advertising? Of course not. But on the flip side, that mean Ferrari or Lamborghini are a peace of junk for not advertising or maybe the chance that many people may have never heard or seen a Ferrari or Lamborghini? Do you see my point?

    AMSOIL is sort of like Ferrari and Lamborghini. People who know Ferrari or Lamborghini know that they are some of the best performing sports cars in the world and do not need to spend millions on advertising to get the word out. AMSOIL works on a similar philosphy. When you see cars breaking world's records and snowmobiles winning races with AMSOIL logos on them, that's the best advertising money can buy.

    Another questionÂ… If AMSOIL is so great, then why doesn't GM use it instead of Mobil 1 as a factory fill in their Corvettes and other high performing sports cars?

    That’s an excellent question. Think about it... If you were General Motors, would it be in your BEST INTEREST to have the cars you sold lasting for hundreds of thousands of miles because of some super, high quality oil you told everyone to use? Wouldn’t you be shooting yourself in the foot? As an auto manufacturer, YOU WANT REPEAT CUSTOMERS to come back every few years, not people who will keep cars for hundreds of thousands of miles because their engines run too well.

    We can't go out and say that Mobil or other oil companies make bad oil, but if you look at the comparisons and see the bigger wear scars that Mobil and others put out vs. AMSOIL, you can clearly see that over a long period of time, that Mobil and the rest can wear out your engine quicker than AMSOIL would. Just look at the Four-Ball wear test comparisons to see what I’m talking about. So wouldn’t it be in GM's best interest (or any automobile manufacturer for that matter) to put a lesser quality oil in their vehicles and not recommend the absolute, best oil in the world? Once your engine gets high mileage and you hear the "Clack clack clack" sound of the lifters making noise and other strange sounds, that's usually the BIG RED FLAG that says, "Well, this engine is old, about ready to die... time to trade the car in on a new one before it totally blows and then I only get $300-500 for my car as a trade-in." And believe me, THIS IS EXACTLY what ALL OF THE AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURERS WANT It's a little thing they call PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE.

    And when you use AMSOIL in your engine, transmission and/or rear-end differential, you are essentially CHEATING the manufacturers' planned obsolecense. This is why automobile manufacturers would prefer that you do NOT LEARN ABOUT AMSOIL. For every person who drives their car an extra 5 to 10 years, that could cost an automobile manufacturer maybe $20,000 to $40,000. Looking on page 72 in the January 2004 copy of “Popular Mechanics” magazine they have pickup trucks selling for a whopping $28,000 to $42,000. Wow! And you want to spend this kind of outrageous money on a vehicle and then put the cheapest oil you can find in it? Just so you can spend another $40,000+ on another vehicle a few short years later?

    So, once again, if you were an auto manufacturer and knew how good AMSOIL performed, would you want people learning about it if you stood to not be selling those $20,000 to $40,000 vehicles every year?

    See... it's all about the big picture that most people never think about... but the bean counters at the automanufacturers certainly thing about it! Believe me, they smile all the way to the bank everytime you hand out your hard earned dollars on a depreciating asset only to replace it in a short time period later.

    And after seeing the law suits above with the FTC against all of the well-known oil companies, why would you NOT BE SKEPTICAL OF THEM instead of AMSOIL? People should be FLOCKING to put AMSOIL in their vehicles, especially with the OUTRAGEOUS price tags of new cars today. What happened to the day of buying a brand new Ford F-150 for $13,000-16,000? WowÂ… that’s a pipe dream now. AMSOIL is an oil that's proven time and time again that beats all of the competition, hands down, with tons of testimonies to back it up.

    When you're using a competing oil, not only are you putting an inferior oil in your car, you are paying MORE MONEY TO DO SO than you would to use AMSOIL since you have to change it more frequently (remember the couple above who used 300 quarts of dino oil vs. 60 quarts of AMSOIL.) So why on earth would you pay MORE MONEY to have a LESSER PRODUCT? That clearly does not make sense at all. Especially in something expensive as $36,000 Nissan Titan or GMC Sierra Denali! The benefits of AMSOIL far out weigh anything that you can get at the Discount Auto Parts store or from the regular Quick Lube shop. In the long run AMSOIL is cheaper to use, your vehicle’s engine life gets drastically extended, your fuel economy gets improved, your vehicle’s performance increases, and your starter and spark plugs last longer from running at cooler temperatures due to less friction. After reading and learning everything on this site, EVERYONE SHOULD BE USING AMSOIL. It just makes sense and costs you MORE MONEY *NOT* TO USE IT! The only time you WOULD NOT use this kind of oil is in a brand new vehicle than has less than 2,000 to 5,000 miles on it. The engine should have adequate time to break in using the dino oil to give time for the parts to settle in.

    Imagine the millions taxpayers could save if all our local government branches implemented AMSOIL into all of the motor vehicles that they haveÂ… police cars, fire engines, maintenance trucks, generators, lawn care equipmentÂ… you name it. And as far as privately owned companies, think of the savings the owners and operators of limosines, taxi cabs, diesel trucks or even jitney’s could pocket! A lot of taxi cabs drive 1,000 miles per week! That’s 52,000 miles per year or about 17 oil and filter changes using some inferior oil when they could use AMSOIL and maybe change the oil only once or twice per year and on top of that, have their engines last a few hundred thousand extra miles more than they expected which enables them to get more PROFIT out of their vehicles transporting passengers. Just imagine if you owned a taxi cab and was able to put 750,000 miles on it WITHOUT AN ENGINE REBUILD! This is not unusual for people using AMSOIL to do!

    If they can fly a man to the moon, don’t you think they can make an oil that will last more than a measly 3,000 miles? OF COURSE THEY CAN AND DO!

    Touchscreen non-smartphones from Korea

    Let's check out some of the coolest, touchscreen-based non-smartphones from Korea, the land where ALL phones look gorgeous.

    LG Viewty Smart

    There's a phone out there that fits the phrase 'phone that's nearly a smartphone, without actually being a smartphone': the aptly named LG Viewty Smart. Following on from the original Viewty, the LG Viewty Smart follows the same design ethos of having a touchscreen only interface (the awesome S-Class interface), squeezed into a slim body, but it ups the ante with a superb 8MP camera. It also has HSDPA, making it a truly portable internet device. Put simply, the LG Viewty Smart is the smartest non-smartphone in the world, and it's largely down to the interface. Built around a 3D cube, S-Class gives the LG Viewty a user-friendly and sleek interface, it is designed to be simple and intuitive.

    LG Arena - a whole new class of interface

    Key to the incredible experience the LG Arena gives you is its interface, as it's the first phone to use LG's new S-Class UI. To visualise it, imagine a 3D cube, sitting on the screen of the LG Arena, and on each side of the cube, there are things like shortcuts to apps, links direct to your music, or other widgets that you can customise yourself. The fun part comes when you interact with the LG Arena, as you simply swipe across the screen, to rotate round those faces, and get to what content you want. It's remarkably intuitive, but more importantly, it makes the LG Arena fun to use, and that is a BIG selling point in 2009.

    Samsung Jet

    So, there's the" rel="nofollow">LG Viewty Smart, with its phenomenal camera. And then, there's the LG Arena, with that interface, and amazing value for money. But coming soon from the OTHER Korean manufacturer is the new Samsung Jet, a touchscreen phone with a brand new interface, based on a 3D cube. Whilst it shares many design similarities with TouchWiz, the new Cubic UI in the Samsung Jet is a whole new experience, where you can flip between screens by dragging your finger, and rotating the cube round. The UI is brilliant, but in terms of feature, the Samsung Jet is no slouch, either. You get a 5 megapixel camera, HSDPA, and a superb web browser, and although the Samsung Jet isn't a smartphone (nor meant to be one), it's one of the nicest feature phones out there.

    A Brief on United States Satellite TV Deals

    Want to know more about United States satellite tv business despite getting those 'free' satellite tv deals?

    As you all may already known, satellite TV business in United States are mainly dominated by two companies, Dish Network and DirecTV. If you would like to have a satellite TV in your home, your choices are mostly limited to the free satellite TV packages that offered by either one Dish Network or DirecTV.

    Here's some quick view on United States satellite TV industry: It was Hughes's DirecTV, the first high-powered DBS system, went on air in 1994 and was the first North American DBS service. In 1996, Echostar's Dish Network went online in the United States and has gone on to similar success.

    You can get more free satellite TV information through out our website ( with info about satellite TV history in United States, Satellite HDTV, free satellite TV deals offered by Dish Network and DirecTV, etc.). But here, we will concentrate on these two U.S. satellite TV giants:Dish Network and DirecTV.

    And as you can see now DirecTV and Dish Network, grew up to be the top satellite TV provider, offering their free satellite TV system everywhere. Apparently, with these free satellite TV deals, Dish Network and DirecTV are the primary competition of cable TV service in United States. These two satellite TV providers actually had blown up a "cut cable wave" in some of the states in U.S.

    Now, lets have a closer look on these two famous free satellite TV providers: Dish Network and DirecTV.


    DirecTV is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service that broadcasts digital satellite television and audio to households in the United States.Owned by DirecTV Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation's Fox Entertainment Group, DirecTV was launched in 1994 and was the first high-powered DBS service in the world.

    DirecTV typically uses smaller 18-inch satellite dishes to receive its signals. Slightly larger, 18 x 24-inch oval antennas to access multi-satellites are becoming more common as DirecTV (as well as other DBS services) are attempting to squeeze more programming onto their growing systems, particularly local television network affiliates stations as well as hybrid systems that also receive broadband satellite Internet service.

    In 1998 DirecTV acquired its partner, USSB for $1.3 billion. In 1999 DirecTV acquired PrimeStar for $1.83 billion. In 2003, a merger with EchoStar, owner of DISH Network, fell through. On December 22, 2003, controlling interest in Hughes Electronics was sold by General Motors to News Corporation.

    DirecTV is often abbreviated as "DTV". However, DTV has recently been used to refer to digital television, giving rise to the unofficial acronym "D".

    DirecTV receivers (television set-top boxes) were originally referred to as "Digital Satellite Service", or DSS, so that services being broadcast by both DirecTV and USSB would appear to be received by generic equipment. In 1998, after the acquisition of USSB, an American court ruled that the term "DSS" was an already trademarked term that could not be used by DirecTV.

    DirecTV offers standard television including local channels in most markets. Local channels are transmitted over terrestrial optical fiber networks to the Castle Rock Broadcast Center, in Castle Rock, Colorado, where they are uplinked.

    DirecTV also offers high definition (HDTV); and a digital video recorder (DVR) service in partnership with TiVo. It has now more than 12 million customers in the US and 1.5 million in Latin America. 2002 revenues were USD 8.9 billion.


    DirecTV is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service that broadcasts digital satellite television and audio to households in the United States.

    Owned by DirecTV Group, a subsidiary of News Corporation's Fox Entertainment Group, DirecTV was launched in 1994 and was the first high-powered DBS service in the world. DirecTV typically uses smaller 18-inch satellite dishes to receive its signals. Slightly larger, 18 x 24-inch oval antennas to access multi-satellites are becoming more common as DirecTV (as well as other DBS services) are attempting to squeeze more programming onto their growing systems, particularly local television network affiliates stations as well as hybrid systems that also receive broadband satellite Internet service.

    In 1998 DirecTV acquired its partner, USSB for $1.3 billion. In 1999 DirecTV acquired PrimeStar for $1.83 billion. In 2003, a merger with EchoStar, owner of DISH Network, fell through. On December 22, 2003, controlling interest in Hughes Electronics was sold by General Motors to News Corporation.

    Dish Network

    So, how about the Dish Network?

    The Dish Network satellite TV is a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) service that broadcasts digital satellite television and audio to households in the United States. Owned by Echostar, Dish Network was launched in March, 1996 and is DirecTV's primary competitor in the United States.

    Dish Network originally used an 18-inch satellite dish called DISH 300 which allowed subscribers to receive a signal from one satellite location. Nowadays, Dish Network uses 20-inch satellite dishes called DISH 500, which allows subscribers to receive satellite TV signals from two satellite locations simultaneously. Slightly larger, 36"x20" dishes (called SuperDISH) are being introduced with capability to receive satellite signals from three satellite locations simultaneously.

    Both DISH 500 and SuperDISH are becoming more common as Dish Network (as well as other DBS services) are attempting to squeeze more programming onto their growing systems, particularly local American television network affiliates stations, and foreign programming.

    In 2003, Dish Network began providing in-flight satellite TV service to the U.S. airline Song. In 2004, selected music channels from Sirius satellite radio were added to DISH Network's lineup of audio-only channels. Dish Network is also partnered with Starband to deliver broadband satellite Internet service along with it's television service.

    Beware of Hidden Costs When Purchasing Mobile Home Park Software

    If you are considering computer software to manage your mobile home park, make sure you are aware of all possible hidden costs. Read about some common ways that software companies can add expensive features and technical support options to make you spend more than you bargained for.

    After finding the perfect software solution for your mobile home business, you may unfortunately discover that there are extra modules and services needed to run the software. For example:


    Many software vendors charge additional for updates to the mobile home park software that are released in the future. These updates can include new features as well as “bug fixes.” Charging for these updates is standard practice, but you can find companies that provide these updates for free. Some companies force the user to purchase updates even if their software is running fine. They force the issue by refusing to do technical support for the user unless they have purchased the latest version. A more reasonable approach is to provide the technical support and, if it is discovered that a problem the user is experiencing has been fixed in a later version, to notify the user. The user can make their own decision whether they want to find a work-around for the problem or to go ahead with the purchase of the corrected and newest version of the mobile home park software.

    Additional Feature Modules:

    Many software companies have a standard price, but additional and often necessary features cost extra and can really increase the price. Look for software which includes all of the features you need, or make sure to add up the additional costs when you are making price comparisons.

    Technical Support:

    Technical support represents a very important ongoing relationship with the software vendor. Most companies offer a user manual included with the software but this is often not enough when you are confused about how to use the software or are experiencing an error in the software. It is important that the vendor has free or low cost options for technical support for those with a quick question or error to report. For example, there may be a free user forum or free email technical support. All software has occasional errors. A vendor that allows you to report errors without penalizing you by charging for reporting the error is a must.

    It is important that the software vendor offer some type of telephone support for those who don’t want to search the manual. For those who need to get back to business quickly and want to be able to pick up the phone for quick answers, a telephone support plan is useful. Telephone support is almost always a paid option. However, the cost of this telephone support can reflect on the software program. Software vendors must maintain some sort of recurring revenue from their customers in order to stay in business, and to pay their trained technical support representatives.

    However, if the telephone support is overly expensive, it may suggest that the software is full of errors and requires a lot of hours spent working with technical support.

    Software Supplies:

    Often a software vendor will add features into the software which require you to purchase more products from them. For example, a software program that offers a check printing feature may require that you use their printing company to purchase check forms that are compatible with the software’s banking feature. Other companies will also offer an alternative and less expensive option, such as the option to use checks compatible with QuickBooks or other software for which it is easy and inexpensive to purchase check stock.

    Value Added Services:

    Many software programs offer value added services embedded in their mobile home park software. For example, there may be a credit card processing service that will process payments for you. Often the software company itself receives a portion of the user’s cost for each use of the feature. You need to decide if you can get the feature less expensively elsewhere or if the added cost is worth the convenience of the feature interacting seamlessly with your software.
