It has been a huge project, but the house is ready for the flipping that we had planned from the beginning. The only reason we bought this house was because it was obviously a great deal and it was obvious that if we did things properly well it would be possible to turn a good profit on it. I sort of decided to put in Directv for my own savings, because the cable company here is very unaffordable. We did the kitchen floors over first and then we took out the cabinets.

Of course a lot of people have been to South Padre for Spring Break and no doubt some people have been there on holiday or just to go fishing. I got a place in Port Isabel within a half mile of the causeway leading over to the island. I just got this place because it was really cheap. In fact I was sort of wondering if it was going to be worth the effort required to fix it up. I figure that my risk is not all that great. I have to go to http://choosetexaspower.org and get the power hooked up, just like I was going to need the power hooked up at a rented place. I pretty much talked the guy into selling me this place for less than what a used truck would cost me. It is the only way that it made sense. Continue reading Got a Place Near South Padre Island
One of the hot new business avenues right now is developing software for smartphones and tablets. It has become a major source of development and is a growing economic sector in the software industry. While smartphones and tablets are able to access quite a few things by going online and viewing whatever they want in a browser, users tend to prefer using apps made specifically for their devices. When apps are customized to a particular software such as iOS they are able to have an improved online experience most times. The innovation with apps really comes in when you can offer something new and unique to the marketplace that offers users a new experience or a new fucntionality that did not previously exist on their phones or tablets.
If you are someone who works in the industry but do not have experience with designing iPhone apps then you should consult a software firm that can help turn your idea into an application. This is something that is becoming quite common actually because developing an app designed for a particular system like Apple’s can take a good deal of time and requires quite a bit of skill. It’s not just a question of development either, it also has to be approved for sale on the Apple market as well. It is a process but it is one that can lead to great things if you see it through especially since the iPhone and iPad app market is more lucrative to a developer since users are willing to pay for apps and not just download free ones.
As long as you have a solid idea for an app, then the rest can be worked out. Contact a software consulting firm to see about what they will be able to do for the idea that you or your company wants to turn into an iPhone app. Even though you do not have the knowledge to go about designing the actual application, you will be able to contribute to the design and development process to make certain that the end product is what you envisioned.
This is just something my partner and I were thinking about. We have a small chain of auto repair shops in South Carolina. My two cousins and I recently took over the day to day operations from my Dad and my Uncle. We have experienced people to help us out and I have been working for my Dad since I was in junior high school. My cousins are a bit younger, but they are both competent and learning the business fairly well. Our main focus is in car maintainence, we do tune ups, oil changes, tire service and that sort of thing.
We are wondering if we could start giving our customes a free app for their iPhones and other devices. Continue reading How Hard is It to Get Your Own IPhone App?
