Don’t Rip People Off…But If You Do, Wipe Your Hard Drive First!

Read the article about a guy who sold his laptop on eBay. It falsely claimed more Ram and was supposed to be in working condition.

The buyer tried to contact the owner to fix or refund but, when the seller didn’t help/respond, he created websites with his findings on the laptop, including pictures of the seller, bank account information, passport scan, and much more. Now that site is getting a ton of traffic.

What does $200,000 buy you in Southern California’s Real Estate Market

Alan sent me a link showing what $200k buys you in Southern California’s realestate market.

Read it and check out the comments.

Basically, you get a 299 squarefoot free-standing studio.

From the comment:

What’s with the outdoor curtains?

The Realtor writeup includes the words, “Detached Garage.” At 300sqft, I wonder, does this mean it IS a detached garage, or does it have a detached garage?

If it HAS a garage, the house just doubled in size! :-)

Advertising on Google Maps

Well, if anyone has read the Google Maps API Terms (see section 1.5 Advertising), they know Google reserves the right to display ads on the maps you use.

Reports are that they have already begun to test it on their site:

Google is experimenting with plotting local advertisers’ locations on its Maps product, giving marketers a visual and spatial accompaniment to their locally targeted ads.

A search on “hotels” in New York City returns an organic list of local hotels, plotted on the map with red markers and bracketed by sponsored hotel listings, plotted on the map with blue markers. The same search in other locations, such as San Francisco, doesn’t yet return the paid listings.

Well, there’s more than one way to do it:

Advertisers are slowly discovering the potential of Google Maps, and some, like the Target store above (more at Google Sightseeing), are even enjoying some unexpected windfall.

Javascript Moving Window due to Strong Man

Pablo sent over this link:

moving window: make sure javascript is turned on, your window is not maximized, and click on the link. Warning…didn’t work for me on Firefox/OSX but worked on Firebird/OSX as well as IE/Windows.

Web Calendar for George Bush

I was looking for good web calendaring software when I came across Planzo.com…but I didn’t stumble across their home page. I came across them by stumbling onto George W Bush’s calendar on their site. :-)
