Angry At Google Adsense

May 1, 2008

I was supposed to made this post yesterday but got sidetracker… or lazy. Whichever you want to say.
So, here’s my issue with Google Adsense. It seems small but I demand some kind of change about this.

I have $32.49 in my total earnings. But, I can’t collect it because Google says i have to make $50-$100 and over in a month to cash it. That’s fine and dandy if I was doing like a social network site or something related but for a simple personal website/blog, I should be able to cash out whatever amount. If I remember, AdBrite lets you take out any amount. Even if it’s just 5 bucks, you can’t cash it out.

So, my next step is to try to find some form of a number or email to maybe someone who works in Google. An actual insider; not some customer service email bot. I mean, Google needs to change it so that if you’re providing a service such as a social network, online product, and whatever could make you seem like an iBusinessperson (yeah, I just made that up) that you can cash out if you make $50 to $100 and up but for people why are just putting ads on their personal site/blog, take out whatever amount you want.

That’s basically my rant about Adsense. Good service but they do need to make a change to the payment method.


Angry Video Game Clone

March 18, 2008

I assume everyone knows the Angry Video Game Nerd, right?
(http://angryvgnerd.com/ & http://youtube.com/user/JamesNintendoN erd)
So, I was on YouTube and i was searching for… well i forget but i usually watch YouTube Poops.
Anyways, I saw this video on the frontpage in the “What’s Being Watched” area and saw a video game review for Battalion Wars 2. Dare I say… it was almost a clone of AVGN reviews.

He’s angry, reviews old and new games, even does special effects in the videos.

So, does that mean AVGN fans should shun this other dude?
No! AVGN might one day retire the character.
Is the new guy BETTER than AVGN?
You’ll have to watch and judge for yourself.
