I recently switched from Net 10 to Straight Talk. Net 10 offered 10 cents per minute w/o a contract, while Straight Talk offers $1 a day service (1000 minutes, 1000 text messages, and 30MB Internet for $30) w/o a contract. Straight Talk also has an unlimited plan for $45.
Straight Talk uses Verizon towers so service coverage is excellent. The Motorola Razor phone I ordered has a built in browser - so getting my sports scores, stock quotes, and weather info is a snap.
There is one big caveat - do not try to port your old phone number. Straight Talk (owned by TracFone) has a problem setting up "web sessions" for numbers they port. So if you try to port your old number, expect several calls to corporate headquarters - 800-876-5753 - before you obtain web access (see here and here). Frustrating for sure, but eventually it does get resolved.

The projections of the Wizetrade software are almost identical to charts of moving averages. Moving average data is free and up to date on Yahoo finance while Wizetrade charges almost three grand. I haven’t spoken to one serious trader that relies on this type of software to manage a successful portfolio.
Prices start around $1000 and can go up to $10,000+. They try to keep the cost a secret until you attend one of their workshops, then you get the hard sell According to their SEC filings they have graduated over 320,000 and only about 1/3 (98,000) are still Investor Toolbox subscribers. Huh?
The only people that make money from these are the people that sell them to you. If you can afford $3, I'll link you to the scientific approach to trading the market. It takes all the emotion out of buying and selling, and teaches you bankroll management. What have you got to lose? Oh yeah, thousands of dollars on software that doesn’t work!
There are 2 main reasons why food is skyrocketing in price:: the falling value of the US dollar (we import more food than we export) and transportation costs.
That food has to be transported by boat, by rail, then by truck. On average about 1500 miles!
That’s why local organic farming is the most sustainable way to grow and consume food.
I used an Excel based mortgage spreadsheet to see how the life of my mortgage would change if I paid a little more each and every month to the principal. It amazed me! By paying just an extra fifty dollars a month, I was able to shorten the length of my loan by five years and ten months and save more than $18,000 in interest!
Online retailers have argued for years that it would be too complicated to collect state and local sales taxes because of differing definitions and the difficulty of submitting payments to thousands of jurisdictions.
The Senate bill would require states that want to require the collection of those sales taxes to join an existing 24-state group called the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement that has standardized definitions and provided a single location in each state to send all payments.
States such as California, whose tax systems might be too complicated to join the group, still could be allowed to require retailers to collect taxes if they adopted similar tax simplification measures.
