There is a wide range of gambling and card game apps on the App Store. While actual gambling is not permitted through apps, the scope of simulation varies substantially. Some are very complex with Game Center support and matching features while others are bare-bones, offering only a pure rendition of the original game. Such is the case with BlackJack for Millionaire. Upon starting the app, you will find no menus, only an option to start playing. Place your bet and your hand is dealt. You can then choose a new card, stand, double down, surrender or split. If you've … Read more
I was talking with a former colleague a few months ago, explaining how unsure I felt about everything since my move to San Francisco -- from where to drop off my dry cleaning to navigating the dating scene. Both make me queasy.
"Oh, but you're in the best spot," my source crooned. "Think about all the companies that are going to IPO soon. You just have to know where to be. " Go find a guy. A soon-to-be rich guy.
Quelle horreurs! With my two Ivy league graduate degrees and a solid decade of working at … Read more
It's estimated that the Facebook IPO will create 1,000 new millionaires -- granted that's a small, ok, miniscule percentage in the scheme of things -- but still, we thought it prudent to give some words of wisdom to those burgeoning fat cats.
We know that some Facebook employees had grand visions of rocketing into space on Virgin Galactic or excavating Mayan ruins with their new-found fortunes, but Bill Harris of PersonalCapital.com says that cooler heads must prevail.
"The biggest thing is to resist it becoming an emotional decision as opposed to analytical decision," he … Read more
Trivia Millionaire is a basic trivia game that's modeled after the popular television show, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Unfortunately, the things that made that show so entertaining--the timing and suspense--are wholly lacking from Trivia Millionaire.
The program's interface is basic and sleek; it's also fairly intuitive, which is good, given the program's lack of Help file. Users are asked a series of trivia questions and must select the correct answer from four choices. When users are stumped, they can have the program eliminate two wrong answers, select an answer for them, or … Read more
This home-accounting app is powerful, while being both straightforward and easy to use. Millionaire 2020 launches a simple tabbed interface with a row of buttons. Although a robust Help feature provides details on how to get the most from the app, a first-time user can determine how to use this software just by looking at the interface.
The program performed very well during our tests. We liked the simplicity of entering recurring items, such as paychecks and mortgage payments, which included setting up frequency and dates of occurrence. One-time items also were easy to add. Non-financial-savvy users will appreciate the … Read more
From hairstyles to hypnosis, Patti Stanger, CEO of matchmaking service Millionaire Club 123, knows exactly what it takes to make a match.
I caught up with Stanger who also stars in the reality series "The Millionaire Matchmaker" while she was promoting her book "Become Your Own Matchmaker" for advice on the best cars for attracting girls.
Hands down, Stanger recommends a Bentley Continental GT. "It says, I have money and will shower you with gifts and attention," says Stanger. On top of it, it says classy.
Other top contenders include the Mercedes Maybach, which is even more expensive and impressive than the Bentley. "It says Gazillionaire," explains Stanger.
If you're going for the "hip, cool guy" look, consider the Aston Martin DB9 (watch this CNET TV video of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante). It's two steps above the Porsche, said to Stanger, which is typically driven by the 55-year old going through a midlife crisis.
However, she said she's not a fan of Ferraris of any sort--the typical go-to sports car--which screams "little dick" to Stanger.
"If you want to be off-the-beaten-path with a real sports car, you get a Viper," says Stanger.
Thanks to Dan the Mantern's two-week-long extended vacation, we're left helpless and alone. Luckily for us, the Intern Formerly Known as Mark (IFKM is a bad acronym) saves the day, helping us scrutinize stories like Microsoft entering the T-shirt market, the Knight Rider show cancellation, the first Vietnamese House Representative, and other kooky, borderline-tabloid stories we found on the World Wide Den of Filth.
In today's episode of What's Happening With Those Asians, we discuss an important milestone in Asian American history: Louisiana has elected the United States' very first Vietnamese-American House Representative. It's an … Read more
Or so says Guy Kawasaki,as long as you have a good idea. You don't even have to work hard: a couple of hours a day in your underwear should be enough.
Wow! Who knew? I used to joke that I was the only one in Silicon Valley in 1998 to not make a billion dollars (I worked for a large Japanese company - Mitsui - at the time. Japanese firms aren't in the habit of making billionaires out of anyone). But now Guy tells us it's easy.
So here's my new plan:… Read more
