Thought Provoking Article:


Want a Girlfriend? This Startup Can Hook You Up … With a Virtual One

That’s the idea behind Cloud Girlfriend, a mysterious, “coming soon” startup that declares: “The best way to get a girlfriend is to already have one.”

(Editor’s note: Personally I would have completely written this off as an silly idea, and a less than positive reflection on society in general; however, “virtual relationships” in various forms have become very popular in certain higher-tech portions of the world. I’m not certain what conclusions people will come to, but definitely thought provoking. What do you think?)

New Site to Discover:


Penny Auctions are “a new online auction model that is becoming hugely popular. Penny auctions allow individuals to do just what the name implies—buy new, popular products for just pennies on the dollar.”

One of the most interesting and successful companies offering penny auctions is called QuiBids. This Oklahoma based company auctions off brand new products such as iPads, Macbooks, HDTVs, Digital Cameras, Gaming Consoles, and more for steep discounts, often as much as 85 percent off their retail price.
