Best Gaming Tablet From 2013
The following is a paid/sponsored post

As an avid technology user I currently own 4 tablet computers: two Motorola Xooms (first edition), a Kindle Fire HD, and a Google Nexus 7. To be fair, one of the Xooms is my wife's and the Nexus 7 is my daughter's but... I always end up fixing/using them so I still call them mine :)

Besides loving technology, I also love games. Unfortunately, I don't get to spend much time on an actual PC or console game; so most of my game playing time is spent on either a tablet or a cellphone. One of my favorite types of games (or sports as some call it) is casino games. I love poker, slots, and roulette. One site I recently found is www.gamingclub.com/au/online-roulette which has a great app for my tablets and phone.

So which of my tablets is best for playing game? In my opinion it is the Google Nexus 7. The screen is clear and sharp, and the size is just right for gaming. The 10 inch tablets are good for my casino games, but the Xooms are too slow (maybe because they are old?) and the Kindle Fire is pretty locked down with security that real gaming on it is difficult. The Google Nexus 7 has 2 GB of RAM and a Quad-Core Processor that really just make it shine above the rest.

As a side note, I used to have an iPad, and I think it would horrible for games. Apple has that thing just too locked up with proprietary items. Maybe the new iPad Airs are different, but something tells me gaming will still be the same.

How To Win An Amazon Kindle Fire For Free
My company has decided to start running sweepstakes as a way to promote our business, drive traffic to our websites, and give something back to all the people that make our company so successful. Our first giveaway is for an Amazon Kindle Fire, or any other Kindle product and an Amazon Gift Card.

The sweepstakes is easy to enter, you just give us your name and email address. That's it. The cool page is that for each person you get to sign up for the sweepstakes, you get an extra entry. So imagine that 100 people enter the contest, and you're one of them. You have a 1 out of 100 chance of winning, or 1%. But, if you get 10 of your Facebook pals to sign up, you now have an 11 out of 110 chance of winning, or 10%.

Now, we won't go into the math of what happens when your friends refer friends, etc. The point is, with little effort you can greatly increase your odds of winning. To enter the sweepstakes, just visit: http://www.rentacomputer.com/sweepstakes

 
Dell.com - Be Careful How You Order
Last night the charging port on my Dell Studio 1735 went out, so I after getting a price on fixing it ($449 + installation) I decided it was time to get a new laptop.

I went and shopped for a Dell XPS 17 model. Because I knew exactly what I wanted, I started with the base model and then customized it to my needs. The cost was around $2,100. Next, I started with an upgraded model which had extras that I didn't really care for. I customized it to match my needs but it still had things I didn't want. The cost, however, was only $1700.

How can this be I thought? A laptop with more features that costs less? So I went back to the base model and I customized it to match EXACTLY what I had customized on the upgraded model. The cost difference: $508.

Here are the two quotes: base model quote & upgraded model quote.

You can clearly see that the market value on the items are the exact same, $2,207.99. But the upgraded model has $528 in discounts while the base model has only $20 in discounts. Even in my cart, this is what is shown:



Bottom line: Be careful how you shop on Dell.com.
