Digital drives ecommerce

I remember when I got a digital camera in the 90's it was a Sony that took a 3 1/2 diskette for storage. The reason was Ebay. Before buying the digital camera I was taking analog photos with my film camera walking to a one hour photo lab nearby, then they were developing them giving me prints. Then scanning the prints using my hand scanner (remember those?) and fixing the scan. It was an expensive labor intensive process.

It was much faster and easier to take photographs using a digicam and pop the diskette into my computer and upload them to Ebay. Also pictures for my web pages became much easier.

The future cameras will become smaller, faster, cheaper, etc. I paid over $500 for a camera that gave me less than one megapixel. Now I bought on Ebay a camera that was 3.1MP for $50 and you do not need more resolution than that for Ebay.

Now some cameras come with WiFi already so you do not need to connect them to your computer to upload the pictures. The future of cameras is here.

Electric Car

Return of the electric car to a dealer near you. The GM EV1 was gone in 2003, the battery was too heavy and it got only 60-90 miles city on a charge. Make way for the Chevy Volt with 640 miles city on a charge.

I check the keywords for electric car and came up with.
antique car electric heater 600.25
electric hybrid car 44.26
electric car for sale 7.10

Go wordtracker! We have many niches for a electric car dealer.

Is it ethical to alter photos?

One of the most pressing questions that dominates many discussions of web masters that take place in the highly competitive world of the internet is - Is it ethical to alter photos?

Think about it. It's not just lying. It is - thou shall not steal. A deliberately decietful photo can cost you the buyer. Also it can ruin the rep of a seller. Most sellers that think buyer do not mind "enhanced" photos never step into the shoes of the buyer.

As Jesus "Do onto others as you would have them do onto you." Few buyers would want an altered photo. Most want to see what the item looks like.

When the web is a lie you trust it less. You might want to go to a physical store. At least there you can see the item you are buying. The web becomes less useful if sellers are allowed to alter pictures of products.

High price of GAS

We are paying ome and more as the pump. The problem is that the supply of oil is going down and demand is going up.

The high price of gasoline is fueling the surging inflation because costs go up as fuel prices go up. This creates even more problems for our troubled economy. Already in some states people are paying over $3/gal for gas.

I want to do SEO on ways to save money on fuel.
