… a month! And oh, wait… Wait for it… for 12 months! Just when you thought you’re getting a bargain, Kelly’s Sales and Leasing is offering a rent-to-own arrangement for a Nintendo Wii (which is currently priced at a relatively cheap $250) that would, in the end, cost you a grand total of $948 – almost the amount of 4 Wiis. Oh and their definition of lease-purchase: What distinguishes lease-purchase from a retail credit sale is that there is no interest charged to consumers, no credit is needed, and customers can return the merchandise at any time. This no-obligation, no-debt feature is the cornerstone of lease-purchase. It’s easy, it’s safe …
Ah, the nosy landlord. Does s/he enter your home trying to boss you around? Or probably hounding you for next month’s pay even if you’re up-to-date with your payment. And now you can’t even dress up any more without the possibility of s/he barging through the door and seeing you in your tighty-whities.Threatening your nosy landlord with a shotgun by the door notwithstanding, here are some ideas on how you could get your landlord to respect your privacy.
Choosing the right partner is probably one of the most critical points in a person’s life. Sometimes a person’s lucky to find true love within moments, but it takes a much longer time for some.

Help your dream become your reality by dating your right kind of people.
Our first attempt at screencasting! Basically a look back at our previous how-to post on the topic:
Everyone wants to earn a promotion and reap all the rewards that go with it. A corner office. A higher pay. An assistant. And the power to boss people around. Anyway, there’s a lot of ways you can actually do to get what you want – work your butt off, kiss your boss’ ass, sleep your way to the top, etc… But which one of these prove to be effective?
Some of us might think that we don’t have the time or resources to get a toned and slimmer figure. There are actually a lot of ways to go about losing weight. We just have to be smarter and more dedicated in order to be successful about it.
There’s pretty, there’s sexy, then there’s intriguing. Part of the charisma you have is what makes you intriguing. If you want to get people under your spell, you better have that charm about you that’s powerful enough to bewitch everyone. And leave them wanting more.
I still believe that there are still a lot of issues in this world that do not need an over-elegant solution. In short, the “Keep it Simple, Stupid” (KISS) principle still holds true. Zen has it that a happy person doesn’t lead a complicated life. There is some truth to this somehow. Just read the tabloid headlines and you’d see how complicated celebrity life is. And now take a look at Britney Spears and how messed up her life is. Here are some ideas on how to keep things simple.
Well, sorry for those who have been misled by the title. This is not some advanced modeling software that can readily create 3D models from JPEGs. Make 3D a web tool that lets you view 2D images converted to simulate a 3D environment. If you ask me, this is a very interesting imaging algorithm by the guys over at Stanford. Since you can upload your own images, it’s a treat for those who would love to “be back” to some spots that they’ve visited before. Take a look at this rendering of the walkway at Standford. What this thing does is that it analyzes the image for depth, and tries …
So you want to be rich without working hard? There’s only one way to do it and the word is “fund raising”. Nah, I’m kidding. Fund raising is not for people who want to make money out of it, and it’s not exactly easy, either. Fund raising is a very rewarding initiative if you have a noble cause.
