Weekend Project

As we work on XmasRadio.ca for the launch on Monday I wanted to be sure that people can listen to the music on their iPhone. This weeks project is to make our site so that when people visit they will be automatically redirected to the streaming radio.

To setup the redirect add this to your .htaccess file…

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} .*iPhone.*
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ iphone/index.php [L]

This will push anyone using an iPhone to a sub folder called iphone. Be sure to make an iphone folder and add the following code to allow the streaming to work… Read More »

In The Sphere: Mind on Money

Published on Nov 28, 2008   //  In the Sphere

With the economic world going through quite the tailspin, it’s not surprising that many people have money on the mind these days. The issue is further exacerbated by the holiday shopping season, because people still want to buy fantastic gifts for their friends and family, but the finances are making the challenge even more challenging. With this mind, today’s In The Sphere keeps the mind on the money (and money on the mind).

The Keyword Academy starts us at the beginning, answering the age-old question of how long it takes to make money on the Internet. You shouldn’t expect to be an overnight success, but how long will it take before you’re making a sizable income?

Darren Rowse has been able to do quite well for himself as an online entrepreneur and while he’s happy with the money that he is making with Amazon, he’s not happy about payment from the Amazon Associates Program. Gift certificates aren’t a good idea when you’re making several thousand dollars a month and waiting three months for a cleared check isn’t pleasant either.

Thursday Bram flips our thinking upside down by taking a look at a new book called Get Known Before the Book Deal. Some people want to get published so that they can get known. Maybe going the other way around is a brighter idea.

Gary Lee probably won’t have any direct financial gains, but the Los Angeles area community could get a little more excited if Lebron James comes to the Lakers. Kobe’s not getting any younger and Lebron is better than ever.

Ewdison Then finishes off this week’s In The Sphere with something a little more uplifting. What’s the point of making all that money if you can’t enjoy it and share it with good people? Check out his fantastic Thanksgiving Day feast… without turkey!
