I ordered this POD (bean bag tripod) from ThePod.ca and it arrived today. I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl. Basically its a hockey puck shaped bean bag with a universal tripod screw mount on top. It slides right into your pocket. You can put this just about anywhere, (top of a mailbox, fence post) to position your camera.
They make different sizes for different cameras. The yellow one is for small pocket sized cameras, but they have bigger ones (black) for even the paparazzi sized behemoths, and a bunch of sizes in between. The base is water resistant, and there is a velcro pouch so you can take out some of the beads to get a better “floppy grip” on whatever perch you found.
I have just started shooting some video (and now I can get into the act), and will have a demo collection soon, but I wanted to share some pics with you now. Check out ThePod.ca to see some more examples. All of the pods are on sale as of writing this. This is an awesome dad tool because now I can get back into the videos.

GraphJam.com is one of those blogs I have to pop onto once or twice a week. I felt like I should share this one.

On Saturday September 19th, I was on Micheal Finney’s Consumer Talk on KGO 810 AM. We discussed my free downloadable Wallet Cards that contain the actual text from Visa and Mastercard’s Purchase Agreements stating that it is against their rules to require a minimum purchase. You can either listen to the 5:00 hour of his show in its entirety here. (The first part contains Andrew Martin, a writer for the New York Times discussing overdraft fees on debit cards. I am at 31:00 mark.) or click below to listen to just my bit. Read the rest of this entry »

Saw this on UglyDoggy.com, this ad campaign in Singapore is, I guess, aimed at adults? So they get classically dangerous stuff (chainsaw, razor blades, matches, a bottle full of pills) and sculpt it out of Play-Doh. Like we’ve said before, parents aren’t cool with mixing their adult and kid friendly worlds. Sometimes it’s hilarious, but most of the time, it’s pretty disturbing. Growing up, I was told not to make turds out of Play-Doh (I was 3)… my how the times have changed.
