Freakin' Friday! Shop Online for Cables


A couple of weeks ago, we needed a new cable. Thinking that it would be a simple and inexpensive thing, we went to our nearest electronics where the least expensive USB extension cord was $15.00. We managed to buy one at half price when we found one in that had been repackaged, but we certainly learned our lesson. The moral here is that before you let that sales associate talk you into saving your gas by buying an overpriced cable, you can probably buy online for a fraction of the price. Here are some examples of some that are each less than $2.00:

Freakin' Friday! Flip UltraHD Camcorder


If you still haven't made your claim to fame on YouTube, Flip has a new UltraHD Camcorder. Our Flip has enabled us to upload with such simplicity that we are positively addicted to shooting everything in sight (including our cat.) They have also released a tripod that Amazon will toss in for free (or another accessory) if you purchase before May 13. Sure there are others for less, but as far as we are concerned, if it ain't broke...
