Review:

Tokyo Drift, the one movie in the fast and furious movie franchise that didn’t quite fit, until recently.

The story is a bit clichéd, but enjoyable, and…. Fast cars.

For the time it came out it’s not that bad, and I enjoyed watching it. But it is up to you.

Had this problem a while back on my work computer, the hard drive came pre-partitioned and I needed to change the layout because the main (C:) had very little storage, about 160GBs or so out of a 500GB hard drive, so since nothing was on the 500GB side just yet I just deleted it and repartitioned it, but if your case is not so simple, this tutorial should help you out.

How to install Android 4.4 KitKat in Windows using VirtualBox

I was feeling highly nerdy last night and decided to try VirtualBoxing Android 4.4 KitKat, because why not. For the most part it was really simple and I got it up and running in no time.

NB: When you are using your mouse to control the VM you need to go to the bottom, where you’ll see the mouse with a green tick or something, well click that and change it to disable…

That’s a quick fix to your cursor not working in Android’s touchscreen environment, when you do this though, you will need to hit the host key (Right CTRL unless you customized it) to leave the VM, other than that works very smoothly on my machine.

Review:

The second movie in the series and like all sequels, worse than the first movie.

They were trying a bit too hard with this one, and completely missed the mark, but, fast cars, hot women, and a smidgen of action is what most movies need.

It does introduce us to a lot of the characters who would star in future films, but this one was ….. Ouch.

Review:

The first movie in the fast and furious franchise, this is essentially the movie that started everything.

I recently re-watched this movie and I can’t believe what persons considered fashion back then.

The movie itself was entertaining at best, fast cars, hot women, and a bit of action, is always a winning combination.

The storyline is a reworked version of your typical boy meets girl story. But despite all of that, you are still going to enjoy watching it.

Should I Show Ads On My Blog?

This question has been bothering me for the past months since I started this blog. Should I show ads on my site or not?

Well for me the answer is somewhat complicated, so I decided to test it for myself and see if it was worth the hassle.

For those of you who visited this site over that past weeks, particularly on mobile devices would have noticed a small banner ad at the bottom of posts.

This site gets on average 100 visits per day, which converts to around 700 visits a week. Now going with the ad impressions recorded by Google AdSense for the entire month. I had 1500 ad impressions and made a whopping 1 cent. Yep you heard me 1 whole cent.

Now if I do a bit of maths, let’s say I wanted to cover the monthly cost of this website which is $25, I would need 150,000 ad impressions a day, which should earn approximately $1 a day.

Now at this point it would be far more profitable to sell T-shirts, mugs, posters and other trinkets rather than showing banner ads on my site.

Now to be fair, Google AdSense is a CPC (Cost per click) platform and not a CPM (Cost per Impression), but let’s bet real when was the last time any of you clicked on a banner ad.

There is however a huge difference in earnings for persons who use DFP (Doubleclick for Publishers) but if you’re already using DFP then you don’t really need my advice.

So there it is, if you’re running a small website like this one, and wondering if Google AdSense would help you make some extra cash, the answer is no.
