Amazon's new program called KindleUnlimited puts their current lending library arrangement on steroids (some are calling it the Netflix of eBooks).

KindleUnlimited allows borrowing to take place on virtual any device with the Kindle app (tablets, smartphones, laptops, and... Read more →

One theme that I have harped on for years is the notion that there are job openings if you just look for them. Of course, anecdotes are interesting but not always helpful. I have heard (and have shared) stories of so called boom towns that have zero percent unemployment. I have read stories of people picking up everything and simply moving to one of these towns. This week I ran across an online tool that takes the whole idea of a nationwide job search to a new level. Not only will you be able to find boom towns, but regions... Read more →

This is the kind of story that I spend a week searching for and then - 'paydirt.' This may not be one of my longer blog posts, but it may be one the best this summer. I love Amazon and do pretty much all of my online buying through them. The stuff I buy seems reasonably priced, it gets delivered quickly, and there is no drama. As a member of Amazon Prime, I even get free shipping. There is a downside to this robotic approach to always using Amazon as my default shopping site. What if Amazon does not have... Read more →
