15 Years has passed by since this horrifying day. Although I live in NYC and have watched One World Trade Center (AKA Freedom Tower) being built throughout the years, and even walked around it many times taking numerous pictures of the new building on my instagram (look below)…
I have never been to ground zero and the memorial. Why? It brings up sad memories for me whether it was friends I lost, to the thousands of lives lost, or even my own visit to the old towers almost a year before it happens.
It’s been 15 years and I have decided to go visit and pay respects in person instead of some online words.
I did broadcast my walk between the lights and Ground Zero, I’ll let the video speak to you instead. Here’s video link:
Years ago eBay purchased global classifieds giant Kijiji. It did operate as Kijiji for a while until eBay finally (and slowly) changed it to ebayclassifieds.com.
Today, we received emails from eBay Classifieds that it will be shutdown shortly, I will assume that it’s because of the low traffic they have had since they made the switch.
eBay also had purchased mobile local trading app Close5 about a year or so ago and it looks like it’s gaining momentum in the ranks of local trading apps market. eBay is pushing Close5 to be “The” replacement of eBay classifieds as you can read in the email screenshot above.
About Close5: We have personally used it last year before our big move and were successful selling a few items we needed to get rid of, however other more popular local selling apps like Wallapop and OfferUp gave us better results.
eBay Classifieds will stop accepting new postings by the end of August and will completely shutdown by September 30th 2016.
RIP eBay Classifieds.
Throughout the years I’ve got so many great deals on apps (and I’m going to concentrate on the app side of it rather than music and movies), and I have bought many apps on a discounted rate or at full price, just recently I purchased the pro version of what I consider a life saver app called “Twilight” which had a few extra features for just $0.99 instead of $3.99 as part of a summer campaign by Google.
Now back to this awesome new portal.
A couple years back I created a new Gmail account to separate business and personal emails, I even bought a second phone to keep it completely separate, on the new phone, I simply logged in with the new Gmail/Google account and was not able to install the apps I had already paid for from my original account unless I paid for it all over again, of course, all the discounts were gone, and I remember the total was over $400 to re-purchase apps that I’ve already purchased before. The only solution was to login to my old Google account and just download and install all the apps, in order to keep using the apps I had to stay logged in South the original account on the new phone which was supposed to be for personal use.
I’ve made a few mistakes not switching back to the personal account, whether on Google docs or drive or whatever.
Fast forward to today…
The new Google Play Family Library allows you to share up to 6 accounts with family and allow each account to have the ability to install your purchased apps, music, books and movies. This means I sign up, login from the original account, add the new account and that’s it. Which I did. It literally took less than 2 minutes to have full control over all purchased apps from the original phone to the new phone. Not only that, I suggested a useful app with my wife that would have cost an additional few bucks.
Next step, I’m going to sync my music to the new account with Google play music… Wish me luck ????
