For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

      Do you look much better in person than in photos or the other way around?

        Ask a bunch of people this question and you might get a bunch of different answers. Everyone has a different opinion about their looks and features. One of the problems of course is bias -- when you look at a person in real life, you don't just see a frozen, unmoving outer shell, these people are animated and you will subconsciously read a lot about them from their movements and expressions, distorting your perception of the outer shell/appearance whereas in a photo you tend to see just a frozen frame. A picture can freeze a moment of your life, your emotions & your exterior that’s it. Beyond this though, it all really depends upon the studio equipment & photographer who is taking the picture, if he/she is good.

        Most people look better in person. A photo is just, well, a snapshot in time. In person, there is movement and expression. By the time you start to notice something about someone's face, it's moved, changed and the moment is gone forever. In real life there is beauty which really lies in the eyes of beholder and people’s opinion will vary. You tend to see a lot of emotions, gestures good or bad, when interacting with a wide variety of people.

        As for myself, I look terrible in photos and not much better in real life. I guess I am just not a photogenic person. No matter which camera angle is used, I just don’t look right. I guess I should stop comparing my own pictures to the professional pictures that I see everywhere since the photos in magazines, newspapers and other places are usually fake though as they have been airbrushed or photo shopped most of the times. So, I must ask you all: Do you look much better in person, or in pictures? Have you ever had an occasion when you felt like you just did not look no matter how hard you tried? Read more...

          Facevsion touchcam n1 hd video streaming webcam

            This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.

            Sometime back, one of my buddies decided to quit the company where he was working and get into his own business as he had acquired a lot of experience in the buying and selling business. No matter how hard he tried, he could not locate the right tools to make his business a total success as the right communication tools were missing which he needed to get in touch with the employees across a wide area. The video conferencing tools which he was using extensively were not great as the video quality was so poor that it ended up giving a really bad impression. Customers were not happy and they ended up not doing business with us.

            He visited many sites but could not make up his mind what he should do. I was finally called in for help and we sat down for a brain storming session which lasted for many hours. After some trial and error, he was able to discover an excellent site called faceVsion which helped him to set up his site and finally got it up and running by the end of the week. We discovered that the FV touchcam N1 is the first Internet streaming true HD webcam for Skype video calls and it offers features like embedded hardware H.264 encoding, a chip that takes the 720p video and using high-quality encoding technology, squeezes the video into a stream small enough to be sent over a typical Internet connection. The N1 also features a best-in-class 78 degree super wide angle lens with fast auto-focus, so several people can comfortably get into the picture. The N1 attaches easily to most notebook computers or flat-panel displays and can also sit on a desktop. Easy plug- and-play installation via hi-speed USB 2.0.. The full screen 720p streaming video over the Internet offered by this product gave fantastic video quality and he was simply amazed by the results.

            One of the most important things which was missing was a site promotion which will attract as many new customers as possible with minimum cost. After a bit of searching he was able to find a faceVision on line store which met all his needs. This site is able to offer a unique Business Instant Messaging service to companies and organizations that seek for secure and controlled communication over the Internet. Now there is total control over the communication and this will lead to better performance. It is one of the best companies around and offers the Best IM Client services.

            We found out that it is a fantastic site offering just about every kind of communication solution. It seems like the FV ExpressCombo is one of the really useful solutions when a large company wants to communicate with many employees instantly.
            He was so thrilled that he called me up in the middle of the night and told me that his business was finally up and running and attracting many new visitors and he was in constant touch with his employees with the messenger on a regular basis. So if you decide to set up your own online business, do your homework before hand so that setting up the site will not be so time consuming effort for you. Buying one is real simple as FV touchcam is available through and other value added partners.

              Do people have the sense to know when not to use cell phones?

                It is common knowledge that cell phones have become an important part of our life. I consider it the ultimate time-saving device--it allows you to save time by multi-tasking in ways you never before dreamed possible. It is an important part of life, yet it has also turned into a nuisance at times. They are a good communication tool and it has helped us all out under certain situations especially when we are stuck on the road and no genuine help is in site. At other times, it should not be used at all at certain places.

                Besides the irritating marketing calls, one thing which still baffles me is and absurd is why is that children are given cell-phones at an early age? We managed without them for such a long time and without so many other so-called useful 'necessities'. Why should children need phones at school as surely they are there to be educated? By letting them have the cell phones with them while they are attending classes seems a little silly. Many children misuse the phone facility instead of using it for its basic contact purpose.

                The other thing about cell phones is that some people do not have the common sense to know when and where not to use them. I had gone to this really important company meeting sometime back. The branch manager was making his usual company performance speech. It was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. In the middle of the meeting, someone's cell phone began ringing loudly. After the person dug it out of their pocket or holder or wherever they had kept it, they shut it off. At this point you could hear several people there quickly shutting their phones off also after realizing how many stares it drew. People are just so accustomed to having them that they don't even think about where to put it in a silent/vibrate mode or simply turning it off. Cell phones don't belong in office meetings, weddings, places of worship, funerals, courtrooms, clinics, hospitals, driving a vehicle and there are many more places they should not be used as certain management rules prohibit its use. In addition to the above mentioned inappropriate moments, there are times when I just don't want to be reached.

                A person’s life will not end if they shut off their cell phones. One must remember that we have lived without these modern conveniences for hundreds of years and a short denial of use will not hurt us. Tell me, is it really that much of an inconvenience to turn your phone off and let your phone take it as a missed call in certain situations? Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I usually shut off my cell phone when it is not use. When I have to leave it on, I put it in the silent mode and at other times vibrate mode only. The cell phone is meant for emergencies. If I am not able to answer the phone right away due to circumstances beyond my control, I usually call back when possible. If it is a true emergency they will call back or leave a message. Sometimes I wonder if people have become so rude or are they simply not thinking.

                I do understand that most people's lives are kind of hectic these days and a lot of things do happen in their life, but people should learn to slow down every once in awhile! Show some respect for others in situations where it is due and it is just not appropriate for your phone to be going off under certain situations. Not only will your life not end if you shut your phone off for a few hours, but the world will still be there when you get back to it. Like when someone is calling someone me while they are sitting on the toilet? Eeeeew. There are some things I just don't need to know.

                On an ending note, I would like to mention once more that even though cell phones have their benefits, yet they also have several drawbacks some of which I mentioned above. Finally, remember not to walk through stores isles while using Bluetooth headphones. You will just look like a crazy person talking to yourself and probably the security people will end up following you around. Remember to use the vibrate mode in your cell phone. You’ll just love it and probably become addicted to it. Read more...
