IPHONE APP MORE EXPENSIVE THEN THE PHONE???

26 Aug

After a $900 video surveillance app led the iPhone App Store’s most expensive apps for months, it has been topped. The new most expensive app is a $1,000 study guide for lawyers called BarMax CA, designed to help lawyers pass the California bar exam.
There’s a new most expensive iPhone app!

Why charge so much?

Like all the other “most expensive” apps, for the people who are buying the app, it’s actually a relatively small cost. Passing the bar exam could lead to a law career that generates millions (or tens of millions) of dollars in salary over a couple decades. So $1,000 is a relatively low cost for a study guide.

Sky Mall Shopping

25 Jul

After 8 planes in a matter of 2 weeks, I took notice to a little catalog called SkyMall this on board shopping can handy yet very dangerous especially in long haul flights. SkyMall offers a wide variety of gadgets most of which are less than useful but amongst all the crap I came across a few things that caught my attention.

Stainless steel wallet – Woven using 25,000 flexible stainless-steel threads that are three times thinner than a piece of paper, that feels as smooth as silk and has the same strength that far surpasses leather. Resistant to corrosive materials such as salts, acids, and seawater, the tightly woven steel also passively resists radio-frequency hacking–the latest identity theft technique that attempts to scan newer credit cards.

Rolling carry-on/laptop bag –  Made with a padded compartment for a laptop and top-grain cowhide leather, the outer pocket has a removable, high-density foam sleeve that holds a 15″ laptop, protecting the device from traveling.

How it works order SkyMall uses the latest technology to ensure safe transmission of your credit card information. For fastest delivery, products are shipped to you from each individual catalog merchant. Delivery times may vary, but most items will be delivered within 7 to 10 business days. Rush and Next Day delivery is available for many items; additional charges apply.

Aquabell Set – Don’t laugh but this can come in handy for the active traveller who won’t have to worry if there hotel does not have a gym. Simply add water to expand the weights up to 4 lbs. capacity and then empty them within seconds when it’s time to pack for home.

Top 10 things to do in LA

25 Jul

 

1. Visit Universal Studios

2. Drive along the famous Pacific Coast Highway

3. SHOP – Fashion Island Mall, South Coastal Plaza, Robertson Blvd, Rodeo drive, Melrose ave.

4. Walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame (during the day, night time can be a little iffy)

5. Head to the beach – Newport Beach, Laguna Beach.  Huntington Beach, Malibu and of course Venice Beach

6. Dress like your from there – This includes nothing but a pair of flip flops and swim trunks. Now don’t take me literally that i mean when your walking on the beach. Otherwise dress how you would normally without looking like your trying  to fit in.  

7.  Go see a baseball, football or basketball game… california has sooo many sport teams to choose from.

8. Quicksilver and Billabong offer morning, day-long, week-long surf lessons. Learn the basics of surfing.

9.  Check out Sunset Strip for some of the hottest nightlife spots, a-list hotels and rock ‘n’ roll landmarks.

10. Eat, Dance, Drink and have fun

If your only staying for a short while I recommend flying into the John Wayne Aiport, its easier to get in and out of than LAX. Hotels in the area are great if your not looking for an ocean or city view. Renting a car is easy and most of the hotels in the area offer free shuttle service.
