After many years of success on Wall Street, Jim Cramer decided to share his knowledge of investing with the general public in a book titled Jim Cramer’s Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World. The book aims to give the average investor a better understanding of how to pick and choose individual stocks. In 2005, Cramer took his message to the masses with a television show called Mad Money. The colorful show currently airs weekdays on CNBC and has developed a rabid following of fans and critics. The program is designed to dive into the world of investing each day with Cramer providing his opinion on which stocks a person should buy or sell.
After the stock market crashed at the end of 2008, many people, including younger generations became very skeptical of the stock market and what it had to offer as a legitimate place to park your money. Some turned to “peer-to-peer lending,” which is a concept that has been around for a very long time, but the method as to how it was carried out was not always efficient at all. It went a little something like this:
The cable industry is one of the most baffling industries in this country. It is still one of the only industries that allows companies to monopolize a territory. There are alternatives such as satellite TV which is getting big, but I live in Florida and I see my mother-in-law’s satellite go out every time there is a thunder storm. If you’ve ever lived or visited Florida, you know that there is a thunder storm almost every day. When we lived in Jacksonville, Florida, Comcast was our only cable option. It was the first time that I was hooking up an HDTV to cable, so I didn’t have any other experience to compare it with. We just moved to Orlando, and Bright house is the cable dominator here. I now have something to compare it with, and I must say that I am much more impressed with Bright House’s services.
I’m going to start a series where I review a consumer product from time to time that I have had either a bad or good experience with. The posts will be under the simple category, “Reviews”.
Today’s product is the Samsung LCD Flat-Panel family of Televisions.
What I own:
I have the 40″ Samsung LN-T4042H 720p model LCD Flat-Panel Television. Samsung has dozens of current LCD models out there with varying different styles. I am assuming that they stay consistent in quality, given that I have friends with the 26″ model, 42″ model, and 32″ model.
