ipod-nano-settlement-01-23-09

You know those lawsuits that you kind of forget about and figure they will never come to anything or will be thrown out of court. Well back during the first generation of the iPod Nano, apparently their was a lawsuit for some pretty pissed off people that just thought the original iPod nano's crappy case was just beyond what would be considered acceptable when it came to how easily it became scratched and scuffed and turned into a really nasty piece of hardware (click image above to see closer example).

Well it seems that not only did they take Apple to court over the crappy case that was later sort of alleviated by including a slip case (admitting they were originally at fault basically). They didn't just take them to court but now apparently they've won a settlement of $22.5 million that will be given out to those who own the old iPod Nano FIRST GENERATION, ya I know we're on what the 4th, 5th. 6th generation now? Basically if you had one of the original Nano's without the slipcase you are eligible for a $25 settlement, if you did get a slipcase your not left out either because you still got jipped and get $15 for your trouble (does that mean the case is somehow worth $10? Of course this is all after the crappy attorney fees and other law related fees.

In the end it all is still subject to the final judge's approval of the settlement that will be heard in court on April 28th. So this may not be a discounted item or a way to make a killing online, it is a way that you might end up getting a bit of extra cash, even if it's only $25.00 in the crappy financial time every dollar counts is my view.

I decided this was worthy of posting because well, it is. I'm not really the MLM style guy and i've spoken out against every type of HYIP/Autosurf idea, well it seems that I might have found something that takes Surfing and MLM and Paid to Click and somehow actually seems to have turned it into a project that has a longevity planned into it that will allow for it to continue.

Basically what i'm talking about is GetTheBar it's a MLM program of sorts but the product is actually a free toolbar that you run in Firefox or Internet Explorer that is very basic but allows you to initiate searches from it. Sound like the yahoo/google bar? well it is pretty much the same except for a key difference. When you or your friends (up to 7 levels deep) search and click on a sponsored link, you in turn get a portion of that ad revenue that the bar is making from that sponsored link.

It's like google's search bar paying you to use it, the bar installs easily, has no spyware and the entire system is being run by Mr. Gilardi a very big guy in the MLM scene so it should definitly be a strong foundation for future growth. Personally my view is since it's free, and it pays money for doing something I already do without getting paid for doing it (searching the internet as normal) then I might as well use a program/toolbar thats going to pay me and my friends to actually use it.

If you'd like to give it a shot head over to GetPaidAtTheBar, for full instructions and details on getting involved, or jump straight in over at GetTheBar directly.

hyip

In a bid for complete openness and starting to discuss the best of ways to earn cash. We've already discussed some basic internet resale, but it's time to discuss a few things a bit more. shady. Today this post is going to go over a bit of a darker way of earning cash namely, High Yield Investment Programs. First thing to understand is that HYIP's are NOT AN INVESTMENT I don't care if it's a program/site that's been up for 5 years it's still a game and nothing more.

Don't listen to ANYONE whether it be a referrer, a website, a reviewer it doesn't matter don't believe for a second that a HYIP is anything more than the most dangerous game that you've ever delt with. Why should you believe me? Well your talking to a guy that took $30 and turned it into $24,000 and lost it in the same amount of time it took me to log off and log back onto the internet. You see I was on the top of my game I was playing in 5-10 small HYIP games the real game ones that disappear every week or so, but I was only using 10-20$ in each of them.

The issue was I started to feel safe with 2 of the largest HYIPs of the time, GoldenRocks and 12DailyPro. I eventually expanded both programs to close to $12,000 each, remember is started in these programs compounding from $30 at 40-50% every 2 weeks or so for over a year, things were going well. It came down to adrenaline over the course of that year I lost sight of just how at risk that money was. One week the day after I redeposited all $12,000 GoldenRocks disappeared with promises that they were coming back, that never came to be. 12DailyPro was shutdown by the SEC completely and they confiscated everything with the promise of returning money only to have 8 emails from US lawyers with legal fees in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for them to work to "do right by the investors" the fact is had the SEC not stepped in their would have been a lot of rich people instead their were a lot of broke people.

Now why did I redeposit that $12,000 your asking common sense would have said since it was even a little risk why wasn't I siphoning off some of the cash out of the investing into my pocket. Well the reason is pretty simple it's hard to take cash out of something that makes 50% profit every 2 weeks. I mean those 2 weeks were going to make me $6,000 just for those 2 little weeks. It was truly greed that forces people to keep reinvesting and inevitably loosing everything.

So here is my suggestion to you play with them if you want the chance to make a quick buck, but always keep in mind that the moment you invest your money, it's gone! Don't count on it ever coming back because the chances are stacked against you. Be smarter than I was, if you make cash take part of it out always take part of it out, yes the idea that compounding your earnings sounds great the fact of it comes down to is that it's impossible to compound 0$ which is what every person who "invests" with HYIPs ends up with, remember when it comes to HYIP's online no matter how great they seem your never investing your PLAYING.

Before the thought gets into your head you're not going to hear a single word or recommendation on which game or sites to play, one reason is that they change far to often for me to give you one that will eventually be available whenever you do decide to try them. The other reason is after loosing all that money I just really don't feel right recommending any no matter how great they appear to be, as I won't be responsible for any of you making a poor choice because of a suggestion I make, I want you all to have the opportunity to make money but I want you to make that choice as informed as is possible.

Theirs a reason your going to see a lot of "Deal-Flashes" on the site, the fact is that cheap deals especially ones that last only for a short amount of time is the fact that they can easily be flipped and resold for a pretty decent profit in many cases. Not to mention the fact that one effective way to increase your savings in your bank is to spend less cash when it comes to buying things you need.

Their are many great sites that offer things like our Deal-Flashes and I'm sure they will have many deals that we miss and overtime we will probably do a few deal site reviews of our own to discuss which sites you should really keep an eye on.

On top of this we're also playing around with the idea of how best to manage the deal flashes as this is just the beginning of the new site, eventually I plan to also roll out something along the lines of "Resale-Flashes" which would basically be confirmed resellable items that you can make a profit off of with items reselling on ebay, or just generally via your own online store. These Resale Flashes will show the price that we found the item for as well as further information such as the Low/High/Average price found online as well as the price that the items are available for on eBay.

As the Resale-Flashes are kind of the golden deals there will probably be fewer of them over time but they will come eventually and of course they will most likely be time sensitive but we're going to try to bring them to you as often and as quickly as possible so that you can easily react to them and earn a bit of cash.

After a lot of thought I've decided that Profitcorp should be a bit more active so i plan to use the site as a bit of a sounding board for all things that have a chance of turning a bit of profit for you and me, as well as ideas that anyone can put into practice in these hard times to save a bit. So we'll also be posting things like great deals and other issues.... As I'm still busy working on my other sites and getting this site up to speed, be patient eventually the posts will pick up a good bit

For those of you that enjoyed the old site don't fret the old site is still fully available if you just click "old site" over on the right side menu :)
