Domain Naming Service

Author: Alex  |  Category: Services


This company offers a domain name-finding service to those who are too lazy to think of their own domain name. This is how the service works. You deposit 50 dollars and tell them about the site you need a name for, what the site does or will do, how many letters or words in the domain you want max and other criterias you want to set. Then they will dispatch this information to their contributors and a list of available domain names will be sent to you via e-mail. If you see a name that’s a perfect match for your website, register it and let them know the domain name. If you don’t like any of the domain names they suggested, they will simply refund your 50 dollars upon your request.

A simple but yet a money generating business idea.

Power Tools for Women

Author: Alex  |  Category: Gadgets


With rise of equality and technology, many women are beginning to penerate into the men’s market. Once seen as careers only for men are slowly diminishing e.g. contractor, technician and roof cleaner. Manufacturing companies who detect this new trend will capitalize on this opportunity.

Take for instance the power tools business. Most power tools that are available in the market caters mainly to men. However, there is one company which actually provides tools for women. The founder, Barbara first designed and launched her initial product line of high quality tools, toolkits and accessories in May, 2003. Working in the construction business taught her that most tools can be challenging for a woman to use and so she designed hery own to better fit a woman’s size and strength. Her tools weigh less and the grips fits better to a woman’s hand. Extra features are built-in to make them better suited for women such as patented spring-loaded handles on pliers and built-in thumb rests on screwdrivers.

This is one example of creative ideas that just require us to think a little harder.

The hotel offers both single and double rooms.
