Data-Driven Marketing: The 15 Metrics Everyone in Marketing Should Know

Should There be a Cell Phone Directory?

The decision to have U.S. Free Cell Phone Directory is a very touchy and controversial topic. While there are many against a free cell phone directory there are also many supporters in favor of a U.S. cell phone directory. With the exponential growth and popularity of cell phones it is going to become more and more difficult to keep track of family and friends cell phone numbers. Of course most cell phones have a built in phone book to store and find personal cell numbers but there comes a time when a free cell phone directory would come in handy. Say you need to get a hold of a neighbor, or your child’s friend, or your child’s friends parents, or a co-worker. Times like this is when it would nice to have a free cell phone directory where you could trace cell phone numbers free. Also, how many times have you received a phone call from a number that you didn’t know? This has happens all the time and unless you have the number in your cell phone you more then likely will not know who is calling you. This is when a free reverse cell phone directory would come in handy. A reverse cell phone directory is a directory where you enter the cell phone number in the database and it tells you the name associated with that cell phone number.

Why the opponents oppose a free cell phone directory.

They don’t want the public to have access to their cell phone numbers. They want their cell numbers and related information to remain private.

They are afraid that telemarketers will get a hold of there cell numbers from the free cell phone directory. This is a major concern for cell phone subscribers as most know who annoying telemarketers can be.

The fear of other personal information being available to the public. If cell phone numbers are to be made public many of opponents believe that other personal information will also become public.

Why the supporters see a need for a free cell phone directory.

Many supporters believe that more and more people are using there cell phones as there primary home phone. As this trend increases it will become more difficult to find family and friends cell phone numbers. Just as there are the local phone books for landline phones they believe there should also be a free cell phone directory.

They see a great need for a free reverse cell phone directory. For all of those unknown phone numbers we get a free reverse cell phone directory would be great so we could find out who is calling us.

People keep changing their cell numbers and it is hard to keep track of all of the cell phone number changes. Even though it is now possible to keep your cell phone number no matter what carrier you are with people are still change their cell phone numbers to get a local phone number.

Laptop or Pc – What Should Your Next Computer Be?

Copyright (c) 2009 Titus Hoskins

Before you can even decide what make of computer you want, whether it is a Dell, Mac or Hewlett Packard… you need to answer this burning question: will your next computer be a laptop or a desktop PC?

In order to answer this question you need to do your research. You need to familiarize yourself with both laptops and PCs. The reason that I say this is because as with all purchasing decisions there are pros and cons to whatever decision you make. In order to make the most informed decision as to which choice will be your next computer, you need to not only look into the advantages and disadvantages of each of them but you also need to make sure that you apply these pros and cons to your individual circumstances.

So what exactly are these pros and cons?

If you are looking into desktop PCs you will see that they are usually cheaper than laptops and for the money that you are paying you will get a lot more hardware/software. You get a faster computer at a lower price. That’s the main reason many gamers tend to opt for desktop PCs over laptops as they are more suited to gaming and audio/video applications. However, recent developments have meant that there are now laptops coming out that have been primarily designed for gamers. The performance gap is narrowing swiftly.

While laptop prices are falling, they are generally more expensive than PCs because of their design aspect but mainly because they haven’t been around as long as PCs. Generally over time, electronic goods such as TVs, DVD players, computers… usually come down in price as makers recoup their initial manufacturing costs.

Another plus point for a PC comes in the fact that they are easily upgradable. If you want to upgrade the graphics card to a more powerful one you can. If you want to change or add another hard drive then go right ahead. With a laptop however, they may require professional installation and in many cases you are unable to upgrade or add to the technology that appears within it. They are a lot more troublesome to deal with when it comes to modifying or repairing them.

Despite these advantages that the PC holds over the laptop hasn’t stop the popularity of laptops from growing and expanding. There are in fact now more laptops being brought than desktops and this is a trend that is set to increase.

One of the main advantages that exist with laptops is the fact that they are portable. Many people now need a laptop in order to stay more productive. They allow you to access files and data at anytime and from any location, which is a necessity for many people due to our fast paced and on the go society. Also thanks to Wi-Fi wireless networks the connectivity of laptops are amazing. You are able to gain easy access to the Internet while you remain mobile.

Another pro to having a laptop as your next computer as oppose to a desktop PC is the fact that with a laptop you have low power consumption. The reason for this is that laptops are several times more power-efficient than desktops. A typical laptop uses 20-90 W, compared to 100-800 W for desktops. I feel that this is an important feature, especially for businesses that run hundreds of personal computers as it could ensure that you have a multitude of potential savings. It is also helpful to homes where there is a computer running 24/7 such as a home media server or print server.

Nor should you ignore the aesthetic appeal of the laptop. They have great style and design which makes them attractive to potential buyers. Gaming laptops are especially decked out with flashy decor and pizazz; while you should never buy a computer for its looks, many people do just that!

These are just a few examples of the pros and cons that are associated with laptops and desktop PCs. There are good and bad points for each option, so depending on what you need your computer for you may opt for a laptop or you may opt for a PC. The most important thing is that you make your choice based on your needs to ensure that you get the most out of your computer. Satisfy your own needs first and you won’t be disappointed with your final choice.

Things you should know about mobile phone plans

I often joke with my new client’s that we (mobile phone companies) purposely make mobile phone bills confusing just to make it difficult for them to see exactly what they’re being charged.

If you’re often having difficulty making sense of the fees and charges that appear on your mobile phone bill then perhaps the information I’ve appended below will help you get a better understanding of how to accurately read and decipher your account.


Probably 80% of the clients I meet don’t have a clear understanding of their mobile phone call rates; or what they believe they’re are being charged and what is actually being charged are two completely different things! To calculate your mobile phone call rates follow these steps:


This will generally provide you with your “real” call cost per 30 seconds. You’ll now notice that the new 30 second charge varies from the 30 second phone call cost (a) that you found in your mobile phone bill. This variance is due to an additional fee referred to as “flagfall” or “connection fee”. If you now deduct the new 30 second phone call cost from the original 30 second phone call cost (a) you’ll end up with a figure that is your flagfall cost per phone call.


Flagfall (or connection fee) is what I call the “hidden fee” that many client’s either forget they’re being charged, or in some cases, were never told they’re being charged. Flagfall is a “single” fee applied at the beginning of a phone call every time you “connect” to someone (or something) on the other end. Simply put – if you make a phone call and someone (or something) answers, you’re charged flagfall. If nobody answers and the call “rings out” no flagfall fee applies. Many clients ask “what if I get someone’s message centre, am I still charged flagfall?” and the answer is “yes”. In this scenario your mobile phone call has still connected with something on the other end and therefore flagfall and call costs apply.


Call rates and flagfall fees vary from carrier to carrier, plan to plan and call to call (see we really do try to make things confusing!) and this greatly depends on the type of plan or plans you and your business is subscribed to.

To give you a rough guide, in my experience CAP PLANS tend to have higher flagfall fees than BUSINESS PLANS and on occasions some BUSINESS PLANS may have no flagfall fee at all. You may even find that flagfall (and call costs) vary depending on the type of call that you make. For example, a call to a “landline” (office number) may be charged at a higher rate than a call made to a mobile phone, or a call in the morning may cost less than a call made in the afternoon!

So as you can see there are many variables that need to be considered when trying to accurately establish what you and your business is being charged for mobile phone calls.

I trust these simple “Tips & Hints” will help you make sense of your next mobile phone account.

Used Laptops: What you Should Know Before Buying One

When you have decided to buy a used laptop, your decision doesn’t end here. Again you have two options to decide from: whether a used laptop or a refurbished laptop.

A used laptop is used by a user for a long time and is sold again to you. Though a laptop is sold after one-day use immediately after purchase, it will be sold as a used laptop.

Refurbished laptops are laptops used after purchase and returned to the manufacturer or store. The manufacturer refurbishes the parts needed and again sells it as refurbished laptop. These refurbished laptops are equally good as new laptops, but you get it at a much cheaper price.

While purchasing a used laptop you have to look for three important factors in a laptop such as condition of the laptop, features available and the portability of the laptop.

The used laptop’s working condition is very important and it is advisable that you buy a laptop that is within three years old. The currently available programs and software cannot run in outdated laptops since they cannot support the recent technological features. If possible you can stick for searching laptops that are not more than eighteen months old. You don’t have to be concerned about some of these aspects, if you are buying a refurbished laptop as it will be repaired and tested like a new one.

Another important factor that is to be considered is the features available on used laptops. If your main concern is speed, then keep in your mind that laptops operate slower than the desktop computers that have the same processing system. Never buy a used laptop with memory less than 128 MB, as it cannot run many of the programs and applications that are available in standard computers of today. You can buy a used laptop that’s powered between 20 GB and 80 GB of Hard Disk capacities depending on your computing and processing needs. Other important issues while buying used laptop are the laptop screen size, resolution and definition. Also make sure that the used laptop has the needed capabilities for entertainment and media requirements. As laptops are becoming lighter and thinner day-by-day, its portability is very important while you purchase a used laptop. Choose a weightless used laptop that is portable even with added accessories.

You have to be careful while buying a used laptop from an acquaintance or a private vendor. You have to do a thorough examination of the used laptop with the help of a professional or a neutral party. You can easily get deceived while buying pre-owned items and used laptops are also one among them. Computer knowledge is a must while purchasing a used laptop and then only you can ensure a laptop that will meet the standard requirements for today’s environment.

A laptop is a portable gadget that helps you to explore all information you require. As the process of buying a used laptop is complex, you can buy a used laptop guide that helps you in solving problems of what is needed in a used laptop and what is not to be done while buying. Always give importance to factors like the laptop brand, size, weight, battery life, connectivity, storage, memory and processing power. A laptop with high processing power can provide you best value for your money spent.

The buyers’ guides – and – have exhaustive resources for computers, laptops and the other related accessories.

Want To Upgrade My Laptop, What Should I Do

First we can upgrade our laptop devices or computers to make it work in case of higher performance showing or if it happens that we are intended to increase our memory or the amount of random access memory or we can have a need to increase our speed of the laptop devices by increasing the frequency determining the speed and performance by using high definition processors and there makes anew difference in the laptop computer devices.

To upgrade the laptop devices we have to increase the random access memory or increase the hard disk or change the processor from the old one to a new one so that we can make our computer faster and this makes a great difference in performance of the laptops. To upgrade our memory we should first read the manual of the laptop computer given at the time of the purchasing and here the matter of upgrading process can be started and here we have some knowledge of upgrading the device from the manual. If there is no manual given then a pdf file will be given in the hard drives.

The change in hard drives will not solve the problem and here we have to first see the windows system information up to how much maximum memory we can use and we have to check the drive amount installed there. The installation of hard drives depends upon the ports build in the hardware. If and only we can know there is a provision to increase the laptop memory then and then we can upgrade the memory size to gain the best performance. At first the slid covering the battery of the laptop should be opened and the battery should be removed so that there creates no problem in power accumulating creating a massacre in the operation of upgrading and gives a fine performance.

The performance of the laptop is defined on a basis of operation of the laptop computers depending upon the configuration it achieves and there it distinguishes between two laptops of Dell and Compaq companies. The things which should be reminded in case of upgrading is that the Dell is every time going to give a higher performance than any compaqs due to their operation values and higher performance delivering. So the up gradation mostly depend upon the up gradation of the memory and upgrading the memory of the disk space from 80giga byte to a 160 gigabyte will increase the amount of disk space that gives a good performance to any laptop computers but if the random access memory is increased in case of two computers, a Dell one and a Compaq one then it makes a great difference in Dell as it is having a high quality delivering and there makes a huge difference.

Sometimes we see in case of watching or looking windows system configuration that shows a Dell laptop or a Toshiba one can have up to 5 to 6 slots whereas there are a maximum 3 slots in case of Compaq laptops. So we can here increase the laptops dynamic memory a maximum up to 3 gigabyte for Compaq laptops and 8 gigabyte for Dell or Toshiba laptops. So there remain a lot of matters that makes an important fact in determining the up gradation necessary or we should have some knowledge so that we can feel the importance of grading the laptop computers.
