If you are a professional, forget the iPhone and get a SIM-Unlocked Smartphone!

The most anticipated gadget of the year, Apple’s iPhone, will go on sale on June 29 in Apple [[AAPL]] and AT&T [[T]] stores across America. Analysts are confident Apple will hit its target of selling 10 million phones by the end of next year. I am sure no self-respecting 16-25 year-old will be caught without an iPhone. However, if you’re a professional think again. The iPhone is a SIM-locked phoneRumors are that Cingular supplies SIM unlock codes on-demand after three months of use. Still, I am sure the Cingular plan has a hefty cancellation fee if you think that’s an easy way to get a SIM-unlocked iPhone.. It only works on AT&T’s GSM network (formerly Cingular)Cingular is one of the smaller mobile network operators.

Improve eBay Sales by Optimizing AuctionAds Keywords

Are your AuctionAds showing Run of Network ads (aka RON ads) or ads for $0.99 iPod screen protectors? I see low-priced, identical ads on many blogs. Some bloggers have already stopped using AuctionAds while others are seeing excellent results. What’s the secret? Most AuctionAds publishers are simply keyword stuffing their ad code.

Amazon UnSpun Widget Now Earns Referral Fees

UnSpun by Amazon is an interactive community site that provides tools to reach a community consensus around ranking lists. Last April, Amazon announced a UnSpun widget on their Associates Blog. At that time, there was no way add an Associates ID to the items in the list so the widget has seen limited interest from bloggers. The widget has just been updated specifically for Amazon Associates by making items in the widgets link directly to Amazon.com when they have an Amazon link on the corresponding UnSpun page. This means that Associates can now earn referral fees if site visitors visit Amazon.com from the widget. Also, if there is an item in the list that doesn’t have a link, you can go to the list page on UnSpun and add a link to an Amazon detail page. The item in the list will then link to Amazon.

The main games will followed by the Paralympic Games from August 29th to September 9th, 2012. — or so they say.
