Google Latitude

This is pretty damn freaky, not sure how I feel about this.  I can see how it may be helpful when youre in another city or state but then, how often do you know hella other people in the same vicinity. 

Hella cute

Site of the Week: Perpetualkid.com

Oh yes!  Love this geeky site for adults who are in denial!  4GB Lego USB for $40 is fairly reasonable too!!


Get the fuck out of here!!

Check this Mixtape USB Flash drive out!!  I DIE!!!  If I were in the music industry I would be all over this!  Include your album/mixtape/single on the USB along with album art and your EPK, some sample videos, options are endless!  L-O-V-E it!

Google voice is here!!

Im SO excited about this new feature that I havent even read every single detail about it!!  The thing I love about this is that I havent been in one location for longer than two years in over ten years!!  Just about a year ago I changed my number, one that I had since I was 15, it took a lot of courage and I'm happy that I did it, but I often wonder what connections I had ended because of it.  Google voice allows you to choose your own number, in whatever zip or area code you choose.  Then once you have that set up you choose which numbers it calls you at (like forwarding) so the person on the other end never has your actual number, and all the voicemails can be read off of your email (google voice inbox)!  It transcribes voice to text!  Genius!  There is so much flexibility with this, solves so many problems, not to mention you can start using this as your main line and call via internet!!  So fabulous!  Check it out!

One of the reasons this is so helpful to me is that I work a 9-5 in an unrelated (to my business) field so I can't take phone calls, but I can read emails! Not everyone uses email (damn it) so this will allow my clients to leave me a message that I can get instantly!

Site of the Week: Nothingbutnets.net

Here in the states Mosquito nets are another accessory for the home that is mostly never needed (except maybe for outdoor spaces) but in Africa they save lives.  Please if you have the chance donate $10 and save a life!

There's a Team page that I set up back in 2006 at mynothingbutnets.net/kreativess but have been so busy with my business and life in general that I havent had time to keep up, promote, or donate.  Now that everything is on track I really feel blessed and am ready to give back.  Next month Im going to make an offer to clients that are interested in making a donation to this cause; donate $10 to Nothing But Nets and I'll match your $10 which gives you $20 off the project of your choice.  Basically you get $10 off but have essentially donated $20 to a worthy cause, all of which is to a totally non-profit org!!  Plus you can view maps of the progress and get involved with your community!

Gadgets for life: Heart monitoring Band Aid

I absolutely love gadgets that can be used to help you in day to day life or more important things like safety and health.  Any excuse to buy new shit and Im there!!  But this one isn't even approved for the hospitals yet!  It allows Doctors to monitor heart rate, temperature, and perspiration via their PDA/Smartphone by sending a signal of changing symptoms as they occur!  How brilliant!!

Get Money: George Lucas

Some might know I'm a full fledged geek but I absolutely detest Star Wars!!  Ive discussed this on and on and even questioned my own dislikes but still, it sucks!!  Regardless I do appreciate everything that went into it and always appreciate people who can Get Money!!  So here we are on the release of the Droid, and with the launch party in SF one GeekSugar blogger noticed that at the bottom of the invite it said the word "Droid" is licensed to Lucasfilm LTD.  That means Motorola has to pay to use his term!  How dope is that?!?

Is that a 160gb in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

I would LOVE if they did a quilted black finish like say a Chanel bag or similar to the design of the Jawbone II!!  That would be dope!  Other colors would look fab as well!!  The come in sizes from 160-500gb for around $280!  If the 500gb was $280 I would be on it!!

New Blackberry Curve in Royal Purple

Oooh I absolutely love this color!!  Looks like they altered that pesky trackball problem!!  I would die if they just got rid of some of the buttons and made it a touch screen!!  Still cant live without my HTC tilt though!!  Even though theyre 'coming out' now, kinda sucks because I love secretly having the best phone ever!!  Looking forward to the android though!  This Blackberry is only available for Sprint so far and is coming out this month!!

House votes today on extension of homebuyer credit!

This has to be some of the best news Ive had all year!!  Originally the first time homebuyer tax credit was to be 10% of the purchase price up to $8,500 and would only be eligible for those looking at single family homes which must close by November 30, 2009!
The new proposal is to extend the date to April 30, 2010 and you must close by June 30, 2010 to be eligible for the $6,500 credit.  One of the cool things about that is they extend it an additional year for those who have family in the military.  Plus they offer credit on those who have purchased a home in the past five years!  I'm not sure what the details are of the type of residence or how that $6,500 comes to be but I'm just excited that this might happen!!  I had originally planned to purchase my rental property by November but with all the bills I have at the moment my next goal date was May, so April 30th is SO perfect!!  I really cant wait to start on all my home projects!!  AND stop worrying about rent and focus on all my other passions in life!  Cant wait!
