What is the cheapest Vegas hotel worth staying at?


By web gangsta | Published:

The other day, Web Watch was chatting with friends who were about to embark on their very first weekend trip to Las Vegas.

Being recently out of college, they were concerned that they wouldn’t have enough money to have a decent hotel room, food other than a $0.99 foot-long hot dog, some gambling, some clubbing, taxis… well, you get the drift.

One of the questions they asked us was for recommendations on saving a little bit of money – but not to go all crazy. After all, this is VEGAS we’re talking about, and they really wanted to live it up BIG on whatever money they could afford to spend.

How to tell if an item is on sale at your local store


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever been to a store like Target or Costco and see something you’d like to buy – but set it back on the shelf because you “know it’s going to be on sale soon anyway, so why should I buy it now?”

JCPenney went through this thought process recently and said “why wait for a sale? our prices will always be the sale price!”… and their sales plummeted.  It ends up that people LOVE shopping sales, and JCP reinstated a higher regular pricing vs lower sales pricing model like all other retail stores.

By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has told you about how to make your online passwords harder for hackers to easily guess.

But apparently, people are still not paying attention.  Yet again, we’ve hearing news reports of leaked hacked passwords list, and “password” and “123456” are still at the top of the list of passwords being used.

How bad is this?  Maybe it all depends on which websites you’re using it on.
