Fiverr redesigns the site for version 3


Fiverr is introducing a new, redesigned website, which is now at version 3.  It’s slicker and simpler.  There are more categories and subcategories.  And overall it seems more focused.  I think Fiverr spent some time thinking over the direction they want to go, and they figured it out:

Since our founding, Fiverr aims to make buying a service as easy as buying a product on Amazon. Our goal is to provide an “e-commerce experience” that empowers our creative community to package their skills as products, enabling the buying and selling of services in just a few clicks, while eliminating unnecessary sales friction. We call this concept SaaP (Services-as-a-Product).

I like this new look.  Much more than the old one.  And I’ve tried to stay away from the old one, because Fiverr is addictive.  Once you buy something, all you want to do is keep buying.  This the 21st century shopping mall.  I don’t just want products.  I want products built specifically for me.  And I want them cheap.  And that’s Fiverr for you.

Nexus 10 is here

After what must have been the fastest delivery in the history of online shopping, my brand new shiny Google Nexus 10 has arrived. It’s black in color, packing 32 gigs of storage, very fast, and with a beautiful screen.

The wait is finally over.

So far I have only managed to update it to the Android 4.4.2, install and configure all the apps I use, download and watch an episode of the Vikings, and login to every single social network.  It is too early to say much yet, but so far I’m loving it. Colors, performance and the battery life seem to be perfect. 

Tablet shopping

I got tired of waiting for Google to release the second generation of Nexus 10.  At the same time, I am still scared of all the available choices from other vendors.  Today I ran out of patience and ordered the tablet.   With keyboard.  And a case.  And also a couple of games – Call of Duty “Ghosts” and Grand Theft Auto V, which were on the pending list for the next Amazon order.

Clearly, waiting is not my game…  I’ll let you know what I think of these once they arrive and I play with them for a bit.
