eBay's Commercials

Was watching TV and saw an eBay commercial. The premise is that anything you want, you can “find IT on eBay”. What a bunch of stupidness!

Things you can’t find on eBay:

  1. Guns
  2. Ammunition
  3. Body parts
  4. Animals
  5. Alcohol
  6. Tobacco
  7. Drugs
  8. Counterfeit items
  9. And a ton more… (Whole list available here)

Stupid deceptive advertising. It isn’t that I WANT these items to be sold on eBay (guns and ammo would be handy…), but I totally hate it when people make commercials or ads that don’t tell the truth.

Anyways, thats my rant for the day.

Verizon XV6700

Verizon XV6700

Last week I got a brand spanking new Verizon XV6700 cell phone.

Yes, it is expensive. I ended up paying something like $300 ($100 IR) for the phone, and it comes out to like $96 a month for service (that includes unlimited EVDO broadband internet, and also slow internet for those in non-EVDO areas…). I opted for no SMS plan because I can just go online and get my email whenever I want.

This article outlines the basic features of the phone, the things I hate about the phone, and the things I love about the phone. To save you time I’ll let you know right now that my overall opinion is that this phone is awesome! I love it! (I’m telling you this now because I hate reading a long review only to find out that the final rating is that the product sucks. People need to be more upfront about this kind of thing.)

This phone can be found at Verizon’s website.

zulugrid.com lives again!

zulugrid.com has been, more or less, offline for about 2 years. But it finally lives again!

Some things coming soon:

  • Review of XV6700 cellular phone
  • Review of Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop
  • Stamps.com review in relation to eBay
  • And much more!

Allright so it isn’t that amazing or spectacular. Mainly it is just a place for me to post my random and unorganized thoughts, and to speak my peace on whatever I happen to want to speak peace about. (What does speaking your peace mean, anyway? Or keeping your peace for that matter? Who gets to decide which crazy sayings get to stay and which don’t? Amazed the government hasn’t gotten involved yet…)

So keep your eyes open! Lots more coming soon!
