Caller ID – Wish They Could Do Something Like That For SPAM

I remember the days of Pops dodging the phone from bill collectors and not picking up when I would call home to tell him I was staying at a friends after school. I once got in trouble for ‘not calling’ when I did call he just did not answer because he did not want to deal with the tella-marketers and I almost got grounded until I flipped out to Mom and flipped it on him.

Then the wonderful invention of Call ID hit the Cain house hold and suddenly you could screen calls and only pick up the ones that were actually important to you. I guess a SPAM filter works kind of like that but it is not full proof. I still end up with SPAM in my inbox all the time.

I don’t know what would revolutionary for SPAM protection like Caller ID was for phones in the 90s but I am sure someone will figure out something. Theres got to be smarter people than I working on it right now.

Rick Rolled – SPAM at it’s best

I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

Weight Loss SPAM

I do not consider myself an over weight guy, and I don’t know how I got on the list for all this diet pill SPAM (maybe penis enlarger but that is a different story, ha). But seriously everyday I get e-mails promises great weight loss results I wouldn’t even need if they really did work. I could probably gain ten pounds rather than lose them, so why am I getting all these e-mails.

No I am not putting those weird weight loss chemicals in my drinks let alone my body. No I would not like a membership to a gym. And no I do not want a bunch of frozen low calorie TV dinners, deserts, and snacks. That crap can all go back to the people who sent it to me. They’re fat sacks that are just trying to make themselves feel better by conning others. I have had enough. Go sell your fat farm products to some other schmuck.

Slim chews? Pft, yeah right.

SPAM – Are We Asking For It?

This whole website is dedicated to complaining about how much  of a pain in the ass SPAM can be. Pop ups, hacked profiles, hidden links, and stuffed inboxes can get old really quick. I doubt there is anyone out there that would state that they love internet SPAM and its efforts. Even the people you create SPAM probably get bothered by it while surfing the web like anyone else. I still think the number one cause of computer viruses is internet SPAM but for real occurrences that severe are uncommon for the most part if you use common sense online the web.

You should know that filling out this forum and that contest will lead the SPAM directly towards you like blood to a shark fight. Yes, the side bar ads can be appealing and look like the easiest decision of your life but they’re made that way. It isn’t that hard to avoid the tell tale signs of internet SPAM.

Be safe surfers.

Video Game SPAM

My brother and I have never really seen eye to eye on common interests. While I round my bike around with my friends and played in bands he was was busying playing dungeons and dragons and building computers with his friends. It’s not that I don’t play my fair share of video games but I just don’t understand the World of Warcraft or Mario’s Galaxy. So I thought I’d put together a SPAM blog about what gets computer gamers riled up.

My brother says the worst SPAM are the fake games that when you lose (or even worst when you win, he says) you get pushed to an add or forced to sign up for some mailing list to get more. I guess nothing if worst than getting a taste of what you want (in this case a video game) and not being able to have it. I guess I feel him, I get tricked in the fake PAC Man adds every now and than.

Men’s Rings – Lookout For Jewelry Scams

“Everyone is growing up so fast!” My mother says almost sobbing when I told her about yet another wedding I have to attend next month.

All my friends seem to be getting their shit together and settling down. As more and more of my friends announce their wedding dates I get having more and more chats about wedding jewelry. All the ladies seem to know exactly what they want and where to find it but the men on the other hand seem to be very much in the dark.

After talking my friend Ali I am a little weary about picking out jewelry on my own especially online. She is  huge online shopper just like me and when she started shopping for her husbands wedding band she start online by force of habit and convenience. She said when looking for mens rings the key is to do your research online first. She told me that after she started looking around she started getting many SPAM e-mail offering very attractive deals but that they were all scams.

One website I found really helpful was Titanium-Jewelry.com and Belloria.com Blog

Be safe shoppers!

Careful Where You Submit Your E-mail

SPAM seems to come from everywhere, and just like the hay-days of telemarketing your information is key to luring you in. Except the internet is a very grey world, there is no do not e-mail list or caller ID for SPAM and SPAMers use that to their advantage. Most common SPAM is noticed in your inbox, but how did it get there?

SPAM on websites often asks for information in exchange for something you might be interested in, but 99% don’t end up receiving; the pop ads that offer a free iPad by enter your name, e-mail, and zip code. Also there is SPAM forms attached to things you participate in online. When I was filling out job applications on sites like Career Builder I was surprised but the amount of external SPAM forums I was encourage to fill out between all my profile data entry. After every saved page I got a forum from with online school, or that newsletter, things I do not want.

Best advice I can give to avoid this is check the page carefully. Sometimes they hide a skip or an exit window button to fool you into filling the forum out. Otherwise you can do what I do and make a separate e-mail address for sign up for things.

Blinky Spam

SPAM used to be an internet nightmare. Filling your screen, passing off viruses, and crashing your computer. Nothing was worst and it seemed every site was buying into. Now a days SPAM is often over looked by natural habit. We have trained ourselves not to acknowledge it, not to be bothered. Pop up blocks are the first line of defense, then SPAM folders and anti-virus soft wear, finally we just choose not to look to the side bars of webpages.

Yet SPAM is still out there, otherwise there would be no reason for this blog right? But why? Well to get websites more clicks and online traffic to sites I guess. But SPAMers are doing a lot more now to grab your attention. Some are coding SPAM to move passed the pop up blockers. Some have fabulous prizes such as free iPads and island get aways. The worst of all are the blinky SPAM. Ever seen one? It’s a worthless ad like any other SPAM but flashes and blinks bright usually surprising the user into clicking on the ad.

 

Looking for a GPS Navigation App for iPhone

I recently switch from an Android powered My Touch 3G to Apple’s iPhone and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a switch I’ve wanted to make for some time now but couldn’t because I’m still under contract with T-moblie who doesn’t not support the iPhone. Everything about the ISO system running on the iPhone is pretty similar to the Android platform but seems to much much sleeker and user friendly.

There are some things about the my old Android phone that I miss however. Like the widgets on the home screens for one. Apple was the first to introduce widgets on their dashboard but never utilized the idea on ISO and I don’t understand why. I also miss the GPS on my Android. Although the iPhone’s mapping is powered but Google maps, it is no faster than the Android’s and it does not offer turn by turn navigation or automatic rerouting. I know there are navigation apps out there on the iTunes store but I can’t seem to find a free one that isn’t covered with SPAMy ads.

Anyone out there know of a good free GPS navigation app for iPhone?

 

 

Yahoo Chat is Full of Spam

I stopped using my Yahoo e-mail in high school but held on to the address so I had a valid e-mail to sign up for sketchy looking things on the inter web. Largibe@yahoo.com has been my e-mail since before 2000. Why largibe? It’s a scramble of my middle name: Gabriel. Simple enough right, and now you know a bit more about me :)

I moved to G-mail and have never been happier. What drove me from Yahoo in the first place? You mean other than Google’s obvious online dominance and the fact that it runs my smart phone (I like poking peoples faces to call, not phone numbers)?

Again, it’s simple: I hate that the Yahoo chat pops all over while I’m trying to check my mail. This wouldn’t be such an issue if it were actually IMs from friends or real people looking to chat. Every damn time its “make money online” or “check out my live show” or “win a free Ipad today!” I don’t have time for this, and I don’t have time for Yahoo mail anymore. No wonder my inbox is +2000!
