Amazon banning incentivized reviews

Published on Oct 4, 2016

Reports on many web sites say that Amazon is banning incentivized  reviews tied to free or discounted products.

I say this is not correct in this review.

Sorry the audio was not very good on this video. I had picked the wrong microphone.

I just uploaded a review to Amazon and it was approved.
So I think I am correct in my comments in this YouTube post.

Update: Lon Seidman on his YouTube site talks about this issue today:

Here is the Amazon statement on this issue dated today:

The spinning cat

Rusty is a sweet cat and she loves attention and love.  But she is a pain the butt.  She is under my feet all the time.  She wants to jump up and get on my desk.  In the mornings most of all.
Now she likes to get on the back of my chair.  The first time she did it I decided to go around and around to get her off my chair.  She dug her claws into the chair and even bit the chair to stay on.  But she loves to go around and around.
When Hilary goes back to Sweden I am going to have to feed her and clean the cat litter.  With my  arthritis that hurts.  Rusty is not just a pain in the ass She is a pain in the neck, shoulders and back now.

 

Fort Worth Allergy Report

  The last few years I was in Kansas City I  got a bad ragweed allergy.  Then I was in FL for years.  I do not remember having major problems in FL.  I been in Texas for years now.  I think from time to time I have some minor hay fever problems.  My guess is that it is ragweed.
Of course now that I am 75 years of age I do not have to get out and work with the pollen in the air.  That is hard when you work outside and have allergy problems. 

The last few days I been having some problems I think. 

I see, from Pollen.Com, that yesterday the count was high, today it is medium-high and tomorrow will be medium.  The top allergens in Fort Worth right now are ragweed, elm and Chenopods. 

Not Monetized YouTube Videos

 I just did a check and I have now over 40 of my videos on YouTube that are “Not Monetized.”  I have over 600 videos but why all of a sudden they go and mark over 40 of my videos I have no idea.
Here is just a few of them that they have taken away my ability to make money from them.
I clicked a few of them and turned on the ability to earn money from them.
So I think it is just some sort of error on the part of YouTube.

AT&T GigaPower

 A salesman came to the door yesterday and said that AT&T fiber was being put in .. he made it sound like it was installed now.  I asked him how fast the service was and he said 12 Mbps.  I said I have 65 Mbps now.  He said did you check today?  I said yes this morning.
  I live in west Fort Worth (TX) and today they are digging out on the street.  I think they are digging for the boxes to put in place for fiber.
We got Charter Cable right now and get 65 Mbps down and about 5 Mbps up.
If AT&T does bring in their fiber we could get 1 Gbps down.  The cost would be $90.00 a month.  The problem with that is that is the 12 month price. So after 12 months they would increase the price. My guess is that the price would go up by about $30.00 a month.

I am happy with our current service and speed.  But my 27 year old grandson pays for our current Internet and I know he wants faster speeds.  I think he would pay for AT&T GigaPower.

   I gave up on the idea of doing a podcast.  I was going to use SoundCloud but I did not like the way they displayed the podcast.  I may look for someplace else to do podcasts.

   I formatted my old computer and put Linux Mint 18 on it. Pretty neat looking.

 

Three lots of land in rural Texas for sale cheap

Hilary got got three lots of land in a very rural part of Texas. She wanted to be on her own and away from people.  The land is in a flood area and is filled with water moccasins and all sorts of critters.  Hilary loves all sorts of non human critters.
Hilary also spent a lot of money to get a sail boat and have it hauled down to her land. But because her lots were deep mud she could not get the boat on her land.  A neighbor let her park her boat on his land.
Hilary is a trusting soul .. I am not even going to tell you how many hundreds of dollars she gave to a couple of men to do work for her.  They did nothing except take her money and ask for more. Long story.
I can not go into much detail here.  I may post more when Hilary is back here safe.  Tomorrow  she is going to try and get her boat across the road on her lot.  She paid a guy $200.00 to do it tomorrow.  Hilary should be home from the area Wednesday at 0800.  I may try and tell the story here ..but I want to make sure that she is safe before I go into any details.

 

 Anyone want to buy three lots of land in Texas?  There will be a boat on the land and I suspect it will have bullet holes in it.  Looking to make a fast sale and will make you a good price.

Anyone ever see the movie deliverance?
