Build a Wireless Microphone for your Kodak Zi8 (under $60)

Build a Wireless Microphone for your Kodak Zi8 (under $60)

I absolutely love my Kodak Zi8. One of the reasons I chose the Kodak Zi8 was that it accommodates an external microphone. It turns out that the built in microphone is very high quality, but it’s range is only several feet. If you’re recording puts you any further away or want really great sound, you’ll […]

[UPDATE: read below to get free software] I recently developed a tool to increase the optin rate on my websites (and for my clients).

Why you don't ever need FTP again

Why you don’t ever need FTP again

I sat down to write this post about FTP and figured I would make a video about how to do it. But like any good (lazy) engineer, I went first to see what I could find on youtube.  All the videos sucked.  That’s not because they didn’t show you how to FTP. Instead it’s because […]

Convert your front room into a Ustream broadcast studio

Convert your front room into a Ustream broadcast studio

I did several live internet broadcasts at the beginning of the year for one of my membership sites. It’s been about two years since I did my first broadcast and these went off a lot better than my original broadcast.

Creepy Google Stalker - interest based advertising

Creepy Google Stalker – interest based advertising

I’ve found myself growing weary of our benevolent big brother Google recently. Certainly one of the most compelling warnings that I remember recently came from Paul Meyers of TalkBiz fame.

PRWeb.com results disappoint

I recently paid the $80 fee and published a press release through PRWeb.com about a program I’m doing with Mr. USA. The results were disappointing, but I’m not sure that PRWeb is entirely to blame.

Aweber the King of Autoresponders

Aweber the King of Autoresponders

I’ve been following some of the self named Guru circle of internet marketers for a couple of years now and I can say that they have a lot figured out.  What genius and execution (more on that another day…).  One thing they seem to agree on are what they consider the leading e-mail providers.  What […]
