The Iphone and Ipad fever

       So most recently I have become one of those people that have the Iphone and Ipad fever, constantly going online checking for phone prices, seeing if the Ipad price has gone down, checking to see if there’s a new IOS out, logging on to watch YouTube videos of people who have modded their Iphone or their Ipad to do all these crazy things.  This in turn gets me thinking, well actually the first thing I think of starts even before I start the search on Google or YouTube and that is “Man I want and Ipad!” and then the search takes place.
       Now here I am searching Google watching YouTube videos comparing prices and hating them for being so high, wishing desperately that someone sell theirs for 50 bucks to spite someone and therefore making me the luckiest guy alive! :D I like to believe this sort of thing happens, I mean there has got to be at least 10,000,000 people that own Ipads at least one of them has got to hate their device.  So far I have not been that lucky, believe me if I would have I would to this day search every day for this bargain online and have more than one of them.
       But anyway, after much thinking and searching I bumped into this place, it’s called Free the App.  And I know this is only my second post and none if you really know me, BUT, this is where my compulsory buy curse starts to kick in and before you say OMG and roll your eyes at the screen, let me try to reason my purchase.  This bundle is cheap; besides it being cheap it offers so many different options, and possibilities.  Let me explain: I want an Ipad, and I would love to be able to modd it, give it my own special touch if you will.  Now, this little piece of software will enable me to learn how to create Iphone and Ipad applications, not having any programming experience doesn't matter so I like this approach and not only will I be able to modd my Iphone or Ipad, I will be able to sell my apps online and therefore earn enough money to buy an Ipad and modd it myself.
      Hell, who knows!  I might even be able to do nothing but use my Ipad all day and make Ipad apps, wouldn't that be just perfect?  Well if you're like me then you are most likely wondering, what I could do to make the I-world a better place?  Now, I don't know about making an application that will change the world, but at least one that would make at least a certain number of people's lives a little easier.  I know I love it when I find an application to fit my needs. So why not!?  Damn it!  I am going to give this a shot. 
You're welcome to join me in this little venture, it says you need no programming skills whatsoever and if you do happen to hone these skills then it still gives you a marketing plan of some sort. I’ll leave the link below in case you're interested and don't feel like scrolling up or whatever.  I was hooked with the intro and maybe it'll interest you too.

Until my next compulsory buy this has been
The compulsive buyer

Well, this is my first blog, I never thought that I would start blogging I never saw the need for it until now.  It’s not that I have anything against it it’s just that I have not found it useful.  But now here I am trying to give my 2¢ to the world, hoping that the world gives me two cents back per word LOL.  Since this is my first time it might seem a little messy for I have never really even seen a blog before and I’m not sure whether or not it is necessary to have like an introduction to what I will be talking about.  I don’t want this to seem like a journal of some kind, but rather just a combination of everything under the sun.

  Who knows maybe someone out there is already doing the same thing, but this is my space and hopefully people that bump into this blog will not have bumped in to any another one just like it.  As I do not know if an introduction is in order I guess I’ll just try to list out a couple of things that you might find in my blog so as to try to make your experience as pleasant as possible.  Since I am a compulsive buyer I will most likely be blogging about every little stupid thing that I have wound up buying in the last few days.  Not intended as a review blog but just to keep it interesting you will be learning of the pros and cons in my point of view.

You never know if my opinion might change your mind on a certain purchase or if you also are a compulsive buyer just wondering what someone else has to say about the product.  But so much for that, since I am kind of a tech junkie most of my compulsive purchases will be tech oriented but as I said before it’s a combination of everything under the sun, whether it was just something I saw online and had to have it that moment, to the latest gadgets that must replace my outdated phone. Believe me, categorizing myself as a compulsive buyer does not automatically mean that I have the money to indulge myself as I wish I could.  Because, the fact remains that I can’t always afford certain things, unfortunately that doesn't seem to stop me from wanting something that I might not really need and trying desperately to get it for a bargain price.  Isn't that what America is all about?

   OK then my next post though a little outdated is one of the purchases that I most regret making in one of my most trying times economically speaking, you might get a laugh or you might even identify with it, but in any case though most of the time I try to justify my purchases you will hear both sides of the coin keeping in mind that instead of buying food or paying for my rent my mind was thinking “ I've got to the have to it.”
