It’s time to start using Stamps again! More and more it seems that we over try to protect ourselves from SMAP and Viruses and to that end we hurting our ability to instantly communicate like we come comfortable with. Daily I have to review the messages on my SPAM filter to see what it in there that I really need and without fail I have 1 or more messages that were captured and held agents their will. So if I am facing this challenge then how many other people are too? (I know you are) The next question is how do I know that an e-mail I sent actually makes it to the recipient. Sure if I’m using outlook I can request a read receipt but many online web mail accounts do not offer that. Gmail has yet to offer a read receipt option. We now have to second guess if our messages are making it and follow-up with a call or a letter “did you get my e-mail?” So I guess my e-mail is now becoming less of a need and more just another thing I have to babysit. I’m better off not logging in and just picking up the phone. But you know what? That is just fine with me. I will not have to see the Ads on the side of the page in my WEB mail or deal with the SPAM that does not get caught.
How do you protect yourself from Uncertain e-mail’s? Abstinence!
I’m buying more stamps!

Happy birthday PlayStation!
the original PlayStation appeared in North American stores around this time 15 years ago.
I’ve been a gamer all my life, though admittedly I started at the dawn of the Nintendo age with the original NES. But still, I feel old as the original PlayStation appeared in North American stores around this time 15 years ago. (As a side note, the Dreamcast just passed its 11th birthday.)
It was this week in 1995 that Sony started on its quest for dominance of the video game industry – something that it would have for a decade.
“When you look in the rear-view mirror at what was happening in 1995 you see that the video game industry was an entirely different animal. Cartridges were still the preferred medium, and the market was a modest $2.6 billion in sales revenue annually. Many critics thought that a disc-based console with a lot of horse power would shoot over the heads of consumers, but our users proved them wrong,” said Jack Tretton, CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC. “Now, we are seeing a convergence of video games and home entertainment, and a market that is a robust $20 billion in revenue. In the next 15 years and beyond PlayStation will continue to bring new and more immersive experiences, like stereoscopic 3D, augmented reality as well as genre-defying gameplay into consumer living rooms.”
In honor of the 15 year anniversary and over the next several months, Sony is rolling out the follow promotions:
* Free downloadable PS3 & PSP static themes available for download on the PlayStation Store starting today
* Weekly discounts on select PS One titles within the PlayStation 15th anniversary collection page, available in all SCEA territories on PS3, PSP & Media Go Storefronts. In addition to a 50 percent sale on Super Rub A Dub (Super Rub A Dub offer good from Thursday, September 9, 2010 – through Monday, September 20, 2010).
* A PlayStation Home commemorative Original PlayStation (PS One) ornament for personal spaces available starting today.
