Happy New Year everyone! Not really sure what will happen in 2007. Hopefully something great like world peace or something. Technologically, we're supposed to get some cool devices like new ipods with wireless capability and touchscreen, ipod cellphones and pda phones, and new laser TVs to replace plasma TVs at a much cheaper price. I also wouldn't be surprised if Apple releases new laptops and desktops for '07. I don't have a New Year's resolution, so I won't be breaking it either. I hope to be more successful and learn many, many new things. Maybe I can finally develop something new and useful for the human race instead of doing useless nomadic things with my life. So, happy New Year and here's to a more focused year and incredibly new things in a new year of life!

Over the holidays, I had the chance to play and watch the Nintendo Wii game system. Let me tell you, this is the best video game system ever made! How can I make such a bold statement? First of all, the graphics are incredible. Second, the interactivity in the gameplay is incredible. I played and lost the boxing game and by the time I was finished, I was dripping with sweat. Can you say workout? Finally, I can play games and get good exercise at the same time. My wife even wants me to have a Nintendo Wii and she does not like video games, that's how good it is. She is going to buy one for me after they release the next version with DVD play next year. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game system. I almost wish I had waited in line with the people who got it when it first came out. The games that come with the system are bowling, boxing, tennis, and baseball. After I get a Wii, I'll be buying a football game, preferably NCAA Football.
I love to shop online especially during this time of year when school is out and people are shopping like crazy at the mall. I don't want to wait in traffic most the time to get a few items. I would much rather let the things I want come to me in the mail, especially when I do not need the items right away. I feel the best place to shop for electronics is BestBuy. They have all the best deals on electronics. Just when I thought that was good enough, I found promotion codes for BestBuy and other online stores at CouponChief.com With their coupon codes I usually save at least 10% on all my purchases, that's like getting stuff tax free. If you are like me, you like to save money. Because I like to save money, I also like to spend money, but wisely.
This Christmas I received many presents. One present I bought myself. I bought a JVC GR-D347u DV Camcorder from Wal-mart. My digital camera that I paid $200 for about 3 years ago died on me, so I needed a new camera. I decided to search for a digital camcorder so I could record video and save it to my computer and maybe even make a DVD. I wasn't sure what kind of camcorder I wanted, because there are so many good options from Sony, Cannon, and JVC to Hitachi and many others. I think Sony's supposed to be the best, but the price is too high for me at $500- $600. I decided since I hadn't operated a camcorder since the old ones that weigh down on your shoulder and use VHS tapes, I'd better get one for a beginner, since I never owned a camcorder. So far, I really like this camera and hope to do some good videos with the help of my friends and post them on YouTube. I also need to find a good program to edit videos so I can create a more professional look.

I am using my PayPerPost money to buy my Mom's Christmas presents this year. So far I have earned $149 and I still do not use PayPerPost everyday. I bought my mom some gifts from philosophy.com. She loves their stuff, so she is going to have a Merry Christmas this year. The gifts I bought her only cost $49 with shipping and handling so the rest of the money I make is mine to spend. I am trying to save money for a digital video camcorder so I can take on more PayPerPost opportunities. My old digital camera stopped working (Kodak is not reliable). I am so glad that companies love to advertise on blogs. Oh, and thank God for PayPerPost!
