Dustin also known as “Smack” developed a device what he calls the “Smack Booster.” All his research is open sourced and for those who do not or cannot follow the plans is available for purchase. The Smack Booster kits are ready for shipping at $170 each http://www.smacksboosters.110mb.com.
I’m not even going to try to paraphrase what the Smack Booster does. Here’s what I could find, “The smacks booster is often referred to as a Hydroxy booster and consists of a small container of distilled water with a conductive additive. When an electric current is passed through the water it produces a gas mix commonly referred to as hydroxy. This hydroxy mix improves the quality of the burn inside the combustion chamber while reducing CO2 and other harmful emissions coming out of the exhaust. This improvement in burn quality makes your engine run more powerfully and smooth while reducing carbon deposits which have built up inside over its working life. The hydroxy output of the booster replaces a portion of the gasoline normally consumed by your engine. Typical mileage gain results have been averaging around 20% using this design (http://www.panacea-bocaf.org/smacksbooster.htm).”
Download the Smack Booster PDF design here: http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/
So if it’s so good why hasn’t anyone tested it?
Well the design has been tested; lots of people in fact have tested the design. Take the blog http://rebels-roost.blogspot.com/2008/04/modified-smack-booster-finally.html for example. The author of this blog installed the Smack Booster on his van and was able to get 33% additional miles per gallon. From 32.24 MPG up from the baseline of 24.20 MPG. Unless everyone who’s writing about the Smack Booster design is lying it seems to work and definitely needs to be researched further.
1) Turn off your lights during the day time. Electrical equipment is powered from the alternator which will increase its burden on the engine to produce more power.
2) Drive the speed limit. “Every 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional 21 cents per gallon for gas (Sawyers-Specialties.com).”
3) Use cruise control which can help improve fuel consumptions rates up to 10%.
4) Check air filters, spark plugs, and tire pressure. “For tires, every pound under the recommendation accounts for a loss of 2% in miles per gallon (Greenlivingideas.com).”
5) Reduce total car weight by taking out your spare tire, tire jack, and general clutter. Anything you can do to make your car weigh less will improve its gas mileage. This includes not completely filling up the gas tank. Instead try filling it ¼ of the way to reduce total weight.
6) Switch from premium to regular gas. This works for many vehicles that recommend premium only. According to Clark Howard of the Clark Howard radio show, “Only about 5 percent of cars in the country really need premium gas, yet 20 percent of all gas sold is premium (ClarkHoward.com).” Edmunds further backs up Mr. Howard’s statement in this article Edmunds.com.
7) Only buy your gas from discount clubs saving you 5-15 cents a gallon.
Try not to use the air conditioner if you don’t have to.
9) “Use steel-belted radial tires. They increase gas mileage up to 10% (FinancialPlan.About.com).”
10) Look into discount gas card offers like the one offered by Discover Card which offers 5% cash back on gas purchases.

See open the Magic Jack packaging and reading the material that came with the Magic Jack.
The BlackBerry Bold is not only a gorgeous phone it’s also functional. More functional than the iPhone I would suggest, especially for business use. The BlackBerry bold is designed to take away market share from Apple’s iPhone. “The BlackBerry held a 41% market share for smartphones in the US last year, but iPhone went from zero to hold 28% (Guardian.co.uk).” So lets see the features:
The BlackBerry has Half-VGA (480×320 pixel resolution) and a 65,000-color display. One word, amazing! Some are saying they have never seen such a sharp display on a smart phone.
The BlackBerry Bold measures 4.5 inches tall by 2.6 inches wide by half an inch deep, and it weighs 4.7 ounces.
“Quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) BlackBerry Bold, but the most appetizing and notable item is the HSDPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100) support. You also get integrated Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g), Bluetooth 2.0 with full A2DP support, and built-in GPS (enhanced and assisted) (News.com).”
The BlackBerry contains a 624MHz Intel PXA270 processor.
Phone has a built in 2.0 megapixel camera with video-recording capabilities and up to 5x zoom.
Carrier will be AT&T. “The BlackBerry Bold 9000, due exclusively in the United States through AT&T, will be the first BlackBerry sold by a U.S. carrier to operate globally in 3G (third-generation) wireless networks (Twice.com).”
Estimated price is $300-$400

I just began reading a book that I got on my birthday titled, ‘The 4-Hour Work Week Escape 9-5, Live anywhere, and Join the New Rich’ by Timothy Ferriss.
I’ve only delved into the first 30 pages, but some exceptional words of wisdom spouted by the author Timothy Ferriss hit me. Mr. Ferris says, “If you can free your time and location, your money is automatically worth 3-10 as much.” This fits perfectly for the affiliate marketing lifestyle. Your time is free because you can work as much or as little as you want, even making money while you sleep. Additionally affiliate marketers location is free because you can do affiliate marketing anywhere in the world with a broadband connection.
Going into this quote further Timothy Ferriss explains, “Being financially rich and having the ability to live like a millionaire and fundamentally two different things.” I totally agree with this statement because if you make $100,000 a year, but only have 2 weeks of vacation or less what’s the point of making all that money in the first place? Now say you make $60,000 a year as a Blogger, but only work 2 hours a day and can take vacations whenever they want. Who would you rather be? Conventional wisdom would say the wealthy man making $100,000 a year, but I’d take the Blogger making $60,000 any day. Wouldn’t you rather be Blogging on a tropical island in the pacific than stuck in an office stressed out beyond belief? It’s about quality of life rather than money in the bank.
“Money is multiplied in practical value depending on the number of W’s you control in your life: what you do, when you do it, where you do it, and whom you do it with.” The author calls this the freedom multiplier. Using the freedom multiplier the author argues “the 80 hour per week investment banker is less powerful than the person working ¼ the hours for $40,000.” He looks at the “lifestyle output of the money.”
I like this book so far because it’s counterintuitive. It’s a new perspective on something, especially since the invention of the Internet and the flattening world, is now possible to achieve. Because of the Internet one can be free from time and space and achieve a billionaire’s lifestyle at only a fraction of the income.
I’ll keep you posted on any new revelations I learn from the 4 Hour Work Week!
