Technology is developing every second all across the globe, but there is always that one item that stands out from the crowd, gets the people talking and in its path has thousands of replica’s. For my life scoop and people of my generation it appears that the iPod is the gadget of the century. Beginning with the original and small device, it became a way to store a substantial amount of quality music in the one place. The walk-man and disc-man became figures of the past. Plus they where to heavy to especially when it came to working out or doing some power walking with music in your ears.
The iPod then increased to the iPod classic, yet again simple but amazing with even more storage space for music. The improvements here got me very excited with the ability to store movies, clips and even photographs. Despite it being a bit heavier and wider though it was far from a downfall to the original smaller device. It simply got better with the ability to do more and be worthy of your hard earned cash.
Finally, we have the very best that our generation has to offer that came in the form of the iPod touch. This beauty was all about the touch screen, applications, social media, pictures, facetime and even video’s. It is basically a very small, delicate computer that fits right in the palm of your hand. It is down to the beauty and intelligence of this device that so many cell phones have followed suit offering similar applications and touch screen formats. For me the iPod touch remains the very best and has very little to complain about, accept it needs a good clean after heavy use and a nice sturdy screen to avoid damage. Thus concludes my life scoop on the best gadget of our generation.

The raspberry ketone diet is one of the latest weight loss trends. Ketones are substances that are found naturally in raspberries, like in many other berries and fruits. However, if you wanted to get enough ketones from raspberries to actually have any weight loss benefits, you would have to eat large amounts of the berries every day. A much easier way to use raspberries for weight loss is to buy raspberry ketone in supplement form.
Ketones are found in many plants, vegetables and fruits. They are aromatic compounds that can also be created in a laboratory synthetically, but natural ketones are believed to be better for diet purposes. Ketones are thought to regulate the amount of a protein called adiponectin in the body. This can make the body burn off calories extra fast and to speed up the metabolism, helping you to get rid of excess fat. A typical dose of raspberry ketone is 100 mg daily and the easiest way to get the correct dose is to take a standardized supplement.
When you buy raspberry ketone products, always check how much of the active ingredient the supplement contains. There are supplements on the market with varying amounts of ketones and it is important to get an accurate daily dose. Some supplements should be taken twice a day and some should be taken just once a day. To make sure you get a quality product, it is best to buy raspberry ketone supplements that are reputable and have received good consumer reviews.

According to the website Turbo Tax, there were over 51 million current tax payers who listed tax deductions over the year 2007. They claimed more than 1.33 trillion dollars in tax deductions. At the same time, more than 91 million people claimed the regular standard deduction. They managed to reduce their tax by 654 trillion dollars. These numbers look good for tax players who are doing standard deductions. However, you need to look at both methods of tax deduction when you are preparing to do you taxes. If you don’t, you may miss out on some great deductions.
The following are five tax deductions that are often overlooked. They are reinvestment dividends, state sales paid tax, charitable contributions, moving expenses and student load tax deductions.
State Sales Tax
This deduction is for people who live in those states without any state income tax. If you live in one of these states, you can deduct this tax. Most of the time, when people file for this kind of deduction, they overlook several things. These include taxes on automobiles, boats, airplanes, any any sale tax they may have spent on building supplies for the home.
If you have sole any mutual funds during the previous tax year, and have good capital gains, then you should calculate your reinvested dividends correctly and thoroughly. Because the amount that was paid for your investment increases each time that the dividends get reinvested, your capita gain may not be as big as you thought.
Any small items which you may have purchased while volunteering for charities are tax deductible. It is not only the larger contributions that you can receive deductions for, but these smaller ones as well. Keep track of what contributions you have made, such as driving mileage, or any small purchases.
Student Loan Interest
Any interest paid on students loans are able to be deducted. Whether the payment was made by a student or a parent they qualify for this deduction. This is because the IRS counts the interest payment as a gift. This is a good little deduction that students can capitilize on to reduce their tax liabilities.
One last good deduction is the moving expense tax. If you just started your very first job any time throughout the previous tax year and have been required to travel over 50 miles for work, this can be be deducted. This tax deduction can be claimed as part of the cost of any driving and the costs of any moving. However, it is only the moving and driving expenses which qualify. Costs of securing the employment are not included in these deductions.
