Personal Info and Some Consumer Suggestions

I am married with no kids yet. My wife Zehra graduated from OSU Early Childhood Education with a master degree and working at a kindergarten.

I am a fan of gadgets. I have an MDA, I use it as a GPS device as well through a SiRF III Bluetooth GPS Receiver. It would be also cool to have MSVC on it too, but I don't have it yet.

I just bought a Toshiba Gigabeat F20 and installed Rockbox on it, for 90 bucks including shipping. It is the cheapest name-brand, video playing (with Rockbox), Digital Audio Player in the market. (These are also suggested items to buy.)

I recently bought a tablet PC as well. HP Pavilion tx1000z. It is the lowest cost tablet PC I could find. HP has an Academic Purchase Program, so I got a student discount just before I graduate. Too bad, it comes with a passive digitizer touch screen, not an active one, but I didn't care too much about the touch screen sensitivity since I won't use it to write or draw much, I will use it to access menus mostly, as a mouse... (or maybe I am wrong... I can get a laptop with a Hybrid digitizer next time.)

I am not Clark Howard (suggested site for good consumer suggestions) but I am usually good at finding deals an advice friends. So some more suggestions follows:

Credit Card

I am using Delta Sky-miles Platinum American Express. It has a yearly fee, but gives you free companion tickets (i.e. when I buy a ticket, my companion flies for free) and it certainly saves more than the yearly fee. In addition, you can use it when buying precious items (like laptops) and this card doubles the warranty period.

I am using Delta Sky-miles Platinum American Express. It has a yearly fee, but gives you one free companion ticket certificate every year (i.e. when I buy a ticket, my companion flies for free) and it certainly saves more than the yearly fee. In addition, you can use it when buying precious items (e.g.: laptops) and this card doubles the warranty period. Their customer service is terrific.

It also has lots of promotions to earn miles. Last year I used a free ticket to Turkey, and this year I earned another one without even flying, only, the initial 17500 sign-up bonus miles and using the card for purchases and referring it to friends...

You may choose the lesser card (gold) to platinum for lesser yearly fee, but I wouldn't recommend it. (But maybe, you can start with gold and next year upgrade it to platinum to get additional sign-up bonus.)

Moving (soon to be translated)

Bizim mesafe uzun, buyuk seyleri goturmuyoz. koli ship etmek icin USPS'in fiyatlari iyi, 1 feet cube hacim sinirini ignore ediyorlar, kutulariniz 84 inch limitini tuttursa yetiyor ucuza ship etmek icin. Kitap, cd falan kesinlikle media maille en ucuza gider. Ayrica, Space bag denen icat ile giysilerinizi 1/3 hacme sigdirip daha az kutu yollayarak shipping'den save edebilirsiniz, ebay'den 15li setini 30-35 dolara alabiliyorsunuz... Craigslist'i duymayan zaten kalmamistir, ikinci el araba, bisiklet, monitor ve sair esya alim satimi icin ilk kaynak...
