These are police volunteers at the Germantown Commons shopping center in Montgomery County, Maryland. There are about a dozen of them scouring the parking lot. If they spot a GPS or cell phone in your car while it’s parked in this parking lot you will receive a warning by mail from the Montgomery County police to not display the device in your car while you’re parked there.
I finally set up a “DV” account and I’m finally dropping Godaddy as my host for a number of domain names that “seemed like a good idea at the time” (but that I never really put any time into developing. As I shed the stagnant WordPress installations and move the domains over to my new server, I am pretty clear on the fact that I may never find time to dedicate to web sites for these domains.
I’m thinking maybe some of them may be of interest to this community (please pass this idea along for others to consider). I’ve listed a six of them with a brief summary of my original blog idea for each. I think as tumblr groups, these could be fun.
If you want to add a twist on one of my ideas here or have something entirely different that fits the name, let’s do it!
same-store.com originally subtitled, “indefatigably blogging the demise of traditional retail”, this has gotten a steady flow of Google traffic for searches related to various “same-store sales are down” articles I blogged about.
bankdecay.com was registered when my bank really disappointed me and I realized that they don’t actually value me as a customer. I’ve never done a thing with it since registering the name. I think it can be a very cool statement to the banking industry with the right content.
greedyphone.com is a name I thought of in 2002-3 meetings with Microsoft when we thought $10MM was too low for our six month old, now all but offline startup, textamerica. The idea was that none of the parties involved (manufacturers, software developers, and carriers) play well together and the customer pays the price. Blog posts were focussed on “greed” aspects of various news stories. This one also has had steady Google traffic related to those posts.
n80ie.com is the model number of a barely popular, high end Nokia phone that as now alomst obsolete. It gets a lot of traffic and I will point this one to greedyphone.com if it is used.
gpsjunk.com was supposed to be about GPS devices. Never developed.
waterscam.com could be all about… bottled water!
All of these are now empty (on my new server). Please post here with ideas, etc.
