And to make sure that everyone has a different answer...

I use Yahoo Finance, it's got a pretty good view that, like Google, updates dynamically.

I used to use Motley Fool, but they sold their live updating to Yahoo.

I am indeed focused on my retirement more than college, but I'd like to be able to afford my (unborn) children the same privilege that I had in that college was paid for and I left with no debt. I still have no debt to this day, the house was purchased in cash and we keep a zero level balance on all...

It's trickle up in terms of popularity. It's great furniture for college kids, then they started making a little bit more appealing stuff. Only recently they've gone into workplace and office furniture. Now that I'm out of college, it's still a dependable place to go for cheap furniture. In our hous...

Okay, so here's the explanation. About the situation: I work freelance and want to be able to afford sending children to college one day. Whatever college they want. My wife and I are 25 and also wouldn't mind being able to retire someday as well. We receive gifts from a member of the family in the ...

My wife and I are looking to really kickstart our retirement investments, and I've done pretty well with a stock portfolio I've kept since high school, but in no way do I trust myself to be the one with the most financial knowledge in this endeavor (there's a saying in music: If you're the best in t...

I know the feeling that you've got JD. I think it's a mac enthusiast thing. You've GOT to have the latest!

Someone I know in marketing/advertising uses a mac that's 6 years old running OS 9 and is happily chugging along.

Is it 10.4.10?

JD, do you have a del.icio.us tag that you check for story ideas? For instance, I see the post in the Consumerist in how to sell your home in a down market http://consumerist.com/consumer/real-estate/how-to-sell-your-home-in-a-down-market-270521.php And tag it in my del.icio.us account as "GRSi...

A lot of video games have a counter on them, so I know that my $3.50 rental of Super Paper Mario, we got about $0.17 cents an hour for the 20 hours we played it for the week we had it. (we're dedicated to the games that we rent) I dunno if I'll feel so god about rentals when our half price goes down...

I use Go Daddy, their customer service has always been top notch and has walked me through setting up my site more than once.

This might seem a bit off, but usually when I'm in a funk, I'll undertake a long but generally easy project. Upcoming projects this summer include: Have my first ever garage sale (I'll post about that separately) Find some new shelving for my CD and DVD collection. Overall, this one depends where yo...

My wife and I both have Netflix accounts. We splurged on an HDTV, surround sound and a Wii, but those aren't coasts we're going to have again for over a decade, and it was all under $3k. Outside of that is $20 a month or so for Netflix.

I still don't have a device that I leave in the bathroom or will bring to the beach and toss around.

We pay about $110 for digital cable + DVR + showtime, a phone line and 5 MB/s internet access.

We were paying more without the phone service, so we have it and use it, but normally we wouldn't.

I'd be interested in learning more too Our water bill is about 75$ a year tops so I'm not sure if it makes much sense for us financialy. I think this is one of those things that makes you feel better and saves money over a long period of time. For me, one corner of the house floods because the grad...
