epinions is too good.

Things I need to buy in the near future include lots of home electronics equipment. And more and more I’ve been turning to epinions to get popular opinion on items. It’s easy to drill down and find the info I want, and while the opinion quality varies, the majority are well-written and worth a read.

It’s another case of a good idea executed well. -pm

Ryan MacMichael returns tomorrow with a five-part series on what the "puree" button on your blender really does.

Yes -- epinions is outstanding. I've submitted two of my own opinions and I didn't even realize that along the way, you earn money for people reading and using your opinions. On just those two, I've earned about $15... some decent extra pocket change.

And, yes, I will be back tomorrow -- I had a dreaded hard drive crash... pray for my machine.

Tony -- Thanks. ;)

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
