I Found out What I Was Missing and Made Some Changes

I often do not check my spam box in my email program. It is not that I am against doing that, but I often forget to do it. I recently learned that people and companies you deal with may be sending information to you that hits your spam box, and then I realized I needed to start checking it more often. So, I did that least week, and found an email from a local company that offered me less expensive utility rates and asked me to click here for more information in the email. All I can say is that it is a good idea that I did.

I called the utility company and told them just how much I am paying every month currently. Continue reading I Found out What I Was Missing and Made Some Changes

Security Systems Are Definitely Affordable

When I bought my house a few years ago, I didn’t even consider getting a home security system. I didn’t research home security prices then, but I just felt that it was going to be something that I simply could not afford. When my neighbor’s house was broken into a few months ago, I knew that it was time to finally look into it though. When I first moved in, it was just me, and I felt that I could take care of myself. Now though, I have a wife and a set of one year old twins, and I will do everything within my power to make sure they are protected.

I didn’t waste my time by looking into a bunch of different companies. Continue reading Security Systems Are Definitely Affordable

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX

Originally, I thought of getting the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite to replace my Kindle Keyboard which I thought was not possible to be fixed. But after a lot of researching and finally successful in dismantling my Kindle Keyboard and replacing the broken screen….I started to realise that I just simply cannot let go of my Kindle Keyboard, I love it too much! It would therefore pointless for me to get the Paperwhite, because the only differences between these two devices are a touchscreen and backlighting….features that I can actually live without.

Hence I decided that in order to get a better Amazon Kindle device that will not displace my existing Kindle Keyboard, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX would be the best choice. The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX is more of a tablet than a dedicated e-book reader anyway….so not only would I be able to read e-books on it, I will be able to use it just like any other tablet out there. So yes, I’ve pretty much made up my mind that my next Amazon device will be the Kindle Fire HDX.

DIY-ing my Kindle 3


After scouring the World Wide Web for months, I found out that sending a Kindle 3 for repairs to a third-party is too costly for me to bear. There are only a few companies which offer a Kindle 3 screen repair service, and most of them are located in the US and the UK. Being a Malaysian, sending my Kindle to either the US or UK would already be costly enough, what more with having to bear the repair costs and the shipping back to Malaysia! The total cost for all that amounts to at least RM700++, which not only exceeds the value of a Kindle 3 but also that for a new Kindle Paperwhite. Therefore, the solution for me (if I don’t want to ditch my old, broken Kindle, that is) is to order a replacement screen unit from a manufacturer and do the repair myself. It didn’t take me long to find a seller on eBay, which I promptly ordered.

Still waiting for that screen to arrive here. Once it does, I will conduct the repairs myself based on guides that I find on the WWW.
