It's not what you think. The G-spot here does not refer to a woman's most sensitive and elusive spot, but, in the automotive world, it refers to a vehicle immobilizer created by one Dan Davies that'll help protect your car from car thieves. If you install a G-spot in your car, nobody but you can start your car, even if someone else has the keys. So if you can't afford a world-class security system for your car, try this low-cost, simple and effective solution.
If you've dropped your hard-earned cash on the latest Apple offering, you know by now that the iPhone 4 is not without its issues. Reports of diminishing signal strength when people hold their iPhones like regular cell phones abound. Apple has denied the seriousness of the problem, and even published a letter claiming that there's something wrong with the formula they used to calculate the reception bars. In other words, there's nothing wrong with your iPhone; you're just in an area with bad reception. Do you believe them? For everyone else, there's a cheap, easy and quick fix, and it doesn't involve dropping an extra $30 for a special case for your iPhone. Just grab some Scotch tape, and fix it up! Problem solved!
Did you know that Ringo Starr turned 70 on July 7th? Why not celebrate his birthday and the awesomeness that is the Beatles by learning to play a great Beatles song? In this video, the charming Ukelele Mike walks you through the process of playing the light-hearted song "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" on the ukelele. I love it because Ukelele Mike reminds me a little bit of Wilford Brimley, and because it's one of the easier, and nicely mellow Beatles songs to play. It this doesn't take you to the era of hippie love, I don't know what will.
