Fidelity, You Can Do Better

It has been a while since I have been this frustrated with a faceless corporation, but wow, has fidelity completely pissed me off, and what's worse it doesn't even matter.  So in an non-original fashion, I'll just bitch about it on my site that doesn't get enough pageviews to matter. Background of my Frustration with Fidelity About 2 months ago, I received an email from my brother who asked if I would be interested in starting another investment club.  This one would be with a buddy of his, and would focus a little bit more on dividend paying stocks.  Since, I have really enjoyed the [...]

Reviewing the Efitz Wireless Earphones by Specter Wireless

I turn down 90% of the products and books I am offered to review.  Sometimes it is because they aren't applicable to me or my personal finance blog, but more often than not, it is because the accompanying pitch wasn't all that great.  It was a fantastic coincidence when I received an email to review Bluetooth sports headphones exactly when I was in the market to buy wireless headphones to use on my then upcoming family vacation.  The company contacted me days before my trip, and rushed me a pair of the Efitz ear buds. I Would Absolutely Recommend the Efitz Wireless [...]

DollarDig Review

Dollar Dig is a retail receipt website that allows customers to purchase items directly from manufacturers while getting money back. Dollar Dig works by passing along funds to the user that are given to websites by companies for attracting customers. While there are many coupon websites, none quite serve their customers in the same way as Dollar Dig. The first thing I noticed about Dollar Dig is the interface. It’s intuitive to use and features large, easy to read and understand font. You can browse by category such as electronics or apparel or you can search for a specific store on their [...]

Review of MagicJack Internet Phone System

I was contacted by a public relations rep to check out the magicJack internet phone system, since I love free stuff I said I would absolutely try it (hint hint PR People…contact me)! Setting up and Registering my MagicJack Account I couldn’t believe how easy it was to set up the magicJack, I literally plugged the unit into my computer’s USB and it started updating and installing the software using my broadband internet.  Once the updating and installing completed it went right into registration: The account registration was pretty simple and straightforward…name, address etc.  It did not ask for a credit card, but that [...]

Oblivious Investing – Building Wealth by Ignoring the Noise Book Review

I had the opportunity to review Mike Piper’s newest book, “Oblivious Investing: Building Wealth by Ignoring the Noise.*”  Mike is the author of a great blog of the same name, Oblivious Investing. The book follows conversations between Shannon, the investing newbie and her wise Uncle Toby.  Every conversation they have starts with small talk and turns to an investing topic, and the chapters are conveniently titled as such. As one could guess from the title, Oblivious Investing is all about passive investing with index funds.  Throughout the book is the overtone that almost as important as passive index fund investing is the [...]
