Make a million pixel by pixel

Don't you just wish you thought of it first? The ingenious money making idea thought up by Alex Tew a 21 year old student consists of a webpage containing one million pixels of advertising space. He has sold the lot at a price of $1 per pixel. He calls his money spinning creation "The Million Dollar Homepage" and you can view it by clicking here. NB. The website has been so busy that now you can hardly get through to see what it looks like, I reckon their server has gone into meltdown. However, if you want to see an example of how it works then look here and click on the demo button.

Fuel prices creeping up - use technology to keep costs down

I notice that fuel prices are creeping up again. It is unlikely to get better noting todays news "Britain recorded its worst-ever monthly goods trade deficit during November as the oil account slipped into the red for the fifth month running." An article in Martins Money Tips points out a new website where you can sign up for free and easily locate the lowest cost petrol stations in your area. You can even opt-in to receive email alerts for your desired postcode. Check it out - click here
