The Kindle Fire and Other Tables – Taking Over!

I spent the last few weeks in Florida.  Much of that time was with my wife’s sister and her family as my new niece was born.  (Did I tell you she’s adorable?  She is!)

At any rate, when we got there my sister-in-law had bought my wife and I a Kindle Fire as a gift for coming to help the family.  (Very generous of her, don’t you think?)  Being the kind husband I am (if I do say so mself), I let my wife put her Amazon account on it.  But then I took it from her and played with it every day for a week or two.

(That’s what I do with new gadgets.  When I got my first iPad, I took two days off to use it.  I actually got a headache from using it for 6-8 hours straight for those first two days.  I’m a geek, I know.)

So this is my first 7″ tablet.  I’ve owned a smartphone since before they called them that.  I’ve also owned an iPad since the first generation.  But this thing is different.  I knew it would be and mentioned it in my predictions for 2012.

Monster Commerce, Volusion, ProStores, etc. – an honest review

For about six months now, we have been reviewing various ecommerce solutions and content management systems (CMS).  We have several clients in need of a new website or a rewrite of a current website.  Some clients could use two, three, or more new websites. 

As a side thought, we have a couple ecommerce websites that Jason runs for me.  All of us are in this together, so I set out to do a thorough review.

To start with, here are the features I was looking for…
