“A video card will make your cam girl’s video feed run smoothly”


With so many different sources out there for information on anything from the most popular live porn sites to how to create a balanced budget, it can be a bit difficult to sort out the good advice from the bad. While nothing ever really replaces personal knowledge on a topic with a pinch of critical thinking, there is something that can be said for finding trusted sources and knowing enough to understand when someone has no idea what they are talking about. Even if you do not know much more, it’s always better to read up on whatever is available just in case.

One of the most common things that trips people up when it comes to what is actually useful information and what isn’t usually involves tech advice. This is because no matter where you go to find reviews on a particular product, you can rest assured someone reviewing it thinks they know a lot more than they actually do. In fact, you will typically run across more than one person like this for every ten or so reviews on anything that has to do with technology. This is mainly because the information is so readily available online. The Internet is, after all, the result of many curious advances in technology as a whole, and that naturally lent itself towards a technical audience that wanted to share its expertise with everyone else. When it comes to live streaming, graphic cards do come into play. Check our Reviews and Rankings of the Internet’s Top Sites for Cam Fun, when you read these adult live porn reviews, you will know why a good internet connection and graphics card is imperative for a visually entertaining and satisfying cam performance.

“You need a good video card to watch live video feed”


The downside to this inclination, however, is twofold. First of all, people who are naturally technologically inclined tend to have very little capability when it comes to actually communicating with another person. Whether this means they cannot talk very clearly, type their (often erratic) trains of thought without reviewing, or just fail to successfully communicate some sort of idea to others, the fact remains that most of us pretty much suck at it. For those of us who actually have some success from both sides, we are usually
too busy doing it at our day jobs to really go through the effort of providing the same online. Thus, you end up dealing with a mash up of people who think they know more than they do and people who know more than enough, but have no real way to tell anyone the useful bits of information. This is especially true in the case of video cards and their use to actually playing video.

They Are Called “Video Cards,” Though!

Yes and no. The word “video card” is actually something of a slang term for this computer part, in much the same way that “cam site” is generally understood slang for popular sites that stream live porn. The actual name for this piece of computer hardware is “graphics processing unit,” or GPU for short. Graphics are anything you see on your computer screen that is not text. Yes, literally everything else on the screen. To further complicate things a bit, just being called a graphics processing unit does not necessarily imply that the operating system will automatically use the GPU to deal with any kind of graphics, nor does it imply that it is the only think a GPU is good for. In fact, the term “processing unit” probably sounds familiar to you, because there is another part in the system that is one of these as well: the CPU or “central processing unit.” Often times the CPU is just referred to as the computer’s processor, and is the part of the system that generally handles all of the heavy lifting. In fact, you can run a computer without a dedicated GPU, because the CPU is designed to handle anything you could possibly throw at it.

In fact, here’s a piece of computer history that will impress a girl or two, GPUs were developed by specializing CPUs. Back in the day computers did not have GPUs and ran everything through the CPU alone. Now, CPUs use mostly linear logic in order to accomplish what they need to do. In fact, even in modern times, when CPUs are all about “multithreaded” environments, it really all comes down to having more than one core on the die of the CPU. If all of this just went whizzing over your head, don’t worry. The important takeaway here is that CPUs specialize in linear logic, while GPUs were developed to handle more parallel forms of it. This, in turn, ended better for processing graphical things and many even use them for medical equations, such as “folding” proteins. In other words, GPUs are pretty awesome. They do not, however, necessarily make a huge difference in your computing life unless you are doing something that would otherwise tax your CPU and, at the same time, involves something that was coded to take advantage of a GPU being present.

Video Cards Are Not Actually Used for Video That Often

“A video card helps speed up your computer’s processes”


That brings us to the idea that just because you have a video card separate from your CPU in your computer does not mean anything is actually making use of all that extra processing power. If your are starting to wonder what the point of having this part is if no one is going to make much use of it, then welcome to the club. Unfortunately, the most popular application of a GPU’s abilities has become video games rather than things like live porn sites, or any other sort of video compression, decompression, and general handling. As is the case with most kinds of technological stagnation today, the root of the reasoning for this all comes back to money. In general, the whole situation is one big headache, but here is what it boils down to.

On the one hand, you have video card companies who are pushing the technological envelope on the advancements to their hardware so hard and so frequently that they actually had to slow down the introduction of new parts in order to accommodate the market and programmers’ ability to keep up with everything. Programmers, meanwhile, are stuck between a rock and a hard place on this issue. If they start to actually take advantage of the new technologies available to them, they severely limit what they produce, since it will only be runnable on newer machines. However, making sure to code towards older devices means a lot of extra work and a lot lease efficient code. On top of all this, the people who produce CPUs are different companies than those that got really good at producing GPUs, which has pitted the two against each other in recent years as we have switched over to technology designed to handle multiple things at once.

What This All Means to You

“You can enjoy your cam sessions without any audio / video lag”


A new graphics card is only going to improve the video streaming situation on your computer by so much. You have to consider how capable your operating system, browser, and the plugin being used to create the video stream all are at offloading the process to your graphics hardware. That is why, unless you do a lot of video processing or video gaming in addition to your streaming habits, it is not going to be worth your time or money to invest in a new video card just for the sake of streaming video.

Spring is just around the corner and you should really have everything set up for your travel. What is so exciting now is that travelling can be cheap! Why? With the development of technology that allows you to communicate and search information easily is the access to details on how to travel on a budget. No need years of saving and spend too much time for your planning. All it takes is for you to open your mind and your needed travel gadgets, of course.

What are the usual travelling activities that can cause you to spend unnecessarily?

If you want to travel cheap, you have to understand travelling. First thing to do is to book your travel. This is among the first step that can really cost you time and money to do. The best way to book convenient is through online, of course, but even if you are tech savvy, you might still miss out the cheapest or discounted accommodations.

Next, if you plan to travel by car, you might find you spending unbudgeted expenses on car parking and of course, for your gas. You know travels, you can always expect for unexpected expense on the road.

Also, if you look so touristy in a new place, “help” means you need to shell more cash. And if you travel in far places, currency can really cost confusion and of course, money if you miscalculated and pay more than the amount of the item you plan to buy! And if you are really on a tight budget, spending more than you plan can mean disaster – being stranded in a place far away from home. This can be such an uncomforting thought!

Fortunately enough, there are apps for each travel activities spender that will help you save a lot and enjoy your travel on a budget.

Paris Travel Guide iPad App

Booking travel apps

One way to save money is to save time. A free app online, skyscanner, can save you a lot of it. The app will make you search a lot of online sites to help you compare flight plans and, of course, rates and discounts. And you don’t even have to spend for this app because it is for free.

Another interesting app is the Hotel Tonight. This app will help you find hotel room accommodations on a discount. The app has a wonderful feature of helping you to book at a last minute. Not only this, the app can also provide you vetted quality accommodations that are on an up to 70% discount! Talking about cheap and comfort, a travelers dream!

No wonder this “too good to be true but really, really true” app has iTune’s 4.5 stars and another high from Google Play at 4.4 stars.

Travelling on wheels apps

Some wouldn’t like to travel on wheels because gas prices really are pocket drainers. But prices on gas can vary from one station to another and knowing which nearest station offering the lowest prices can be a gem. Now, with the GasBuddy, you can have this information too! You can now go on a road trip and keep your budget gas well at hand. Of course, this app is a favorite not only by travelers but people who are always on the road for work or by locals who are on their usual daily errands. iTunes gave this app a perfect 5. A piece of advice though, keep yourself updated all the time as data are base on users report and might change as you go there.

Another money drainer you worry about in travelling is the car parking. Airport car parks can cost you hefty money per day, something you can do without. But if you have your car, you need to leave it somewhere. With the Airport Parking, you will get hold of shuttle services just nearby to leave your car at a lesser rate. This app is for free too so you can take your fill and enjoy the info.

Pro budget tourist apps

Another free app you need to have handy in your travel is a currency converter called Oanda. The currency converter will keep you sane from computing or estimating how much you have to pay or how much you have spent for a day. The app can provide you a clear report too adding to your credit card or ATM.

Another app to try for this purpose (of tracking expenditures, not converting currency) is Expensify. If you want to keep track of your expenses, you can just take a picture of your receipts and the app can catalog that for you. This will help you monitor just how much you are already spending.

An app that will also help you go to the right places with great discounts at the best possible service is the Scoutmob. You will get handy information and reviews on restaurants, boutiques among others on the area. Choose the place that you fancy without the need of asking around and depending on others for direction. Getting lost means spending more on fare so, you would want to avoid that if you can.

Now, with all these apps handy in your iPhones, tablets or Laptops, travel can be fun and cheap! Spring break has never been more fun…

If you are looking for a date, experts would usually have different theories and guidelines to give. There are those that advice us to lower our inhibitions and open up ourselves to future relationships. Another advice given was to broaden our market and by broadening we mean looking for love in the right places. There are still many who have been looking for a potential date but end up failing. Below are some places to avoid when looking for a woman or man.

Abortion clinics

When you see a person at this location, there could only be one reason that they are there. That is to have an appointment. When you see a person at abortion clinic, they are likely to have an abortion session. Of course, going through abortion will only mean one thing – irresponsibility. The person that you see is likely to become irresponsible. This can be a major turnoff of course because you want to date someone who is responsible and not someone who won’t stand by his/ her decision.

Gambling centers

You could also probably come across persons in gambling centers. This can include casinos and other similar areas. At first glance, you might think that they are well-off because they can afford to go those kinds of places. But when you look at the situation, it could also be a sign that he/ she is a gambler. There could be also be a possibility that they are there because they want to be entertained but if they want to be there are still many ways to enjoy. They might become fulltime gamblers later on their lives.

Public transportations

There is also a possibility that you are also meet men and women in public transportations. This is alright if you ride trains and buses but there cases where a lot of people come together particularly on countries that are part of developing countries. You don’t know the background of the person that you meet on the bus. You don’t know his/ her work and other personal information. In India for example, you have to be extra careful because we can hear about tourists and local alike are getting raped. This is the reason why you have to be very extra careful when you are riding public transportations.

Clubs and drinking bars

There are many people who go to bars and attend different parties so that they can meet other people that might become their loved one if not a person that they can date. Actually, they could be committing a huge mistake. Men and women there could be first, drunk. They are tipsy and won’t probably show full control of themselves. They might become too aggressive also which is a problem. There is also a possibility that the person that you meet there are not looking for someone who they can have a relationship but only just to party with, without thinking of the consequences. You can still find other places that are descent and where the people are wholesome, responsible and can be relied on.

Or, if you are bold enough, you can tell your partner why you are requesting these, in the hope to make your relationship bond. Letting your partner know that you are doing something about the problem will make your partner a willing follower, especially if there is only you for your partner.

Celery and androsterone

Celery has androsterone and it is an odorless male hormone. It is released in sweat which is considered a scent that makes women desire. The celery has to be eaten raw to get the full benefit. You can eat the stem and leaves as is or you can include it in your green juice so your body will be able to absorb the nutrients faster than merely chewing.

Avocado and folic acid

Many may not know it yet but avocados have a long history with connection to sexuality. It was even banned in some Spanish communities due to the perceived obscene shape. Avocados are rich in folic acid which is great energy boosters. It also regulates the thyroid gland in females and increases the hormone production in males which requires vitamin B6. Eat raw or make an avocado shake with banana to sweeten it.

Banana and riboflavin, B vitamins and bromelain enzyme

Banana is a super food. It is good for everybody. With its riboflavin and B vitamins, though, it gives energy and regulates hormones. It also has bromelain enzyme which is known to reverse male impotence, though, it is still in the rumor stage. Eat as is or include it in fruit shakes or even vegetable shake as your green juice and make banana as the sweetener. What better way to mix celery and banana.

Chocolate and phenylethylamine and theobromine

Chocolate is well known as a sexual stamina food. It contains phenylethylamine which produces the feeling of euphoria. The theobromine that it contains, including multiple antioxidants is for a healthy immune system. Without a healthy immune system, you get weak. Choose the dark chocolate variety for less sugar.

Beans and boron

Beans may not be popular for a bedroom setting but the boron that it contains influences estrogen and testosterone levels. Eat cooked.

If you are having some difficulty regaining stamina for some romantic activity, eating these foods will help you physically.

There are several ways people save without realizing the consequence of actually throwing more money away in the long run. It helps to know when savings is actually a trap you set up only to be ensnared by it in the end.

5 Things You Do to Save Money That End up Costing You More

  • Passing up on regular health check-ups: A person usually does not bother about health maintenance until pain and symptoms are up and taking over. What may have been remedied by simple medications could worsen into a condition requiring major surgery thousands of times more costly. In worst cases, cost-cutting at the expense of health could cost you your life.

  • Availing credit card discounts and paying high interests: Signing up for a credit card offers big discount on an instant purchase and it seems unwise not to grab. More often, however, people tend to forget the entailed condition that upon receipt of first statement, full payment must be made on or before the indicated due date. Failure to do so would mean paying high interest as if you did not avail of the massive discount. Further deferred payments will end up with actually paying more than the regular price.

  • Sacrificing quality for big savings: Buying cheap means buying twice. This behavior saves you a lot of bucks for a short term. Shortly, you will need to repeat purchase and end up paying double for the replacement.

  • Evading parking meter for a quick dodge: It has been said time and again, “Haste makes waste.” Do not gamble cents worth of parking fee over ticket issuance even if you are the world’s speediest runner.

  • Discarding food acquired through bulk purchase: A bunch of food sold half the price is a wise grab. However, watching half the bunch turn black and ready for discarding at a later time because there is a lot for you means spoiling the savings and spending more.

Money-wasting Habits in More Ways Than One

save-up. But, chances are, you’re still throwing money in the trash

There are common ways to waste money and if you practice any one of these, do not even think twice of doing better.

  • Unpaid debt: Carrying a balance over debts imposes even high interest and charges. Make it a habit to pay off the balance every month.

  • Overspending on gas: Regular gas works well with your car if the manufacturer says so. Premium fuel just works better for gas dealers. Ensure optimum tire inflation for greater gas mileage.

  • Unnecessary oil change: Recent car models can last up to 7,000 miles before the next change. Check the manual to see if your unit has the built-in sensor that indicates when it is time for oil change and routine maintenance.

  • Keeping unhealthy habits: The cost of insurance is higher for smokers in terms of health and life coverage as well as home and auto insurance.

  • Unused but paid cell phone minutes: Evaluate your time usage and find a suitable cell phone contract. Compare rates between service providers.

  • Being disorganized: Missing out on tax deductions, misplaced bills, and lost receipts may mean hundred of dollars lost every year. Organize these important tax documents including insurance policies and bank statements. Setting up an automatic online bill payment aids in the elimination of late charges and postage costs.

Money-wasting Purchases in More Ways Than One

  • Choosing branded items over generic: Off brand products offer the same benefits with fancy labeled products less the prestige and without much prejudice to quality. This applies in terms of groceries, clothing, and prescription drugs.

  • Discarding cash discount possibilities: It would not be a nuisance to ask coupon offers and privileges over cash or debit purchase especially on seasonal items and big-ticket purchases. Several stores tend to match prices of competitors if a customer asks.

  • Single purchases of beverages: Trim the grocery budget by making it a habit to buy beverages in bulk from bottled water to soda and coffee cups. Better still, settle for tap water or use water filter. Further, nothing beats a freshly brewed homemade coffee.

  • Paying for something free: Look in the right places and you will find freebies in a boatload. Common favorites include kiddie meals, prescription drugs, software programs, credit reports, and technical product support. Music, movies, and books come dirt cheap at local libraries or at no cost at all.

Everyone has spending leaks one way or another that comes unnoticed. Small drips add up to huge expenses in no time and can cost you thousands of dollars in the long run. Find the holes now and plug them so you keep your pockets with extra cash. Understanding the simple tricks may save you from a paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.

Ponzi schemes are investment schemes whereby the funds from new investors are used to pay out existing and previous investors. In simple terms, ponzi schemes provide little opportunities for real investments. In most cases, ponzi schemes fail to progress when any of the following factors occur; If there are few new investors to pay the existing investors when there is a large number of investors who should be paid out.

The downside of a ponzi scheme

Basically, no money is invested as it is purported to be. For the scheme to keep going, there MUST be new investors who are willing and able to invest in the scheme. For the new investors, they will not be able to get back their money if no one invests in the scheme. Their money will go to past investors or lavish managements of the schemes. Yes! At times your hard earned money may end up in the hands of a guy who will use it to buy luxurious products.

In addition, even those who get the chance to be paid are not safe either. This is because their earnings have not be generated legally and therefore they may be followed by the relevant authorities.

How can you avoid ponzi schemes?

1. Do not invest with an organization simply because your friends invest in

You should never trust anyone when it comes to such investments. Even your best friend may not have done sound investigations about the investments that they make and therefore you should not be moved by their decisions. You may take the referrals from the people you know but before you invest on such, take your time to research on the referrals.

2. You should not believe the hype

If an investment sounds too good, the reality is that it could be painful. Many ponzi schemes promise amazing rewards. If a scheme is promising you high returns, then something could not be right.

3. You should not invest in something that you do not understand

If you are a seasoned investor, then you should be knowledgeable about where your money should go and what the reasonable return to expect is. On the other hand, if you are new to the investment sector, it pays to work with reputable investment advisors.

4. Don’t invest everything in a single person

It is important to practice diversification when it comes to investments. When we diversify, we will reduce the chances of losing all our money. This does not mean that we can risk our money by investing in several ponzi schemes. This point helps in situations when we are investing in sectors that we do not fully understand. It is also important to understand that investments involves risk taking and by diversifying our investments, we will be spreading the risks of losing money.

5. Do not let the seller to have full control of your money

It is advisable to ensure that the money is held by qualified third parties.

6. Do not make emotional investments

Do not allow an investment to excite you as this will tempt to make rushed investments which may turn out to be costly. If you have an interest in a certain investment, take your time analyze the details of the investment so that you can determine if it makes sense.
