Buy and Sell Electronics, Sell Cell Phone, Recycle Electronics - gazelle.com

What Is Gazelle?

We provide an easy, fast, and safe way for you to sell electronics and recycle electronics. When you sell cell phones, mp3 players, laptops, or other gadgets to us, you'll earn cash and help save the environment by keeping old, used gadgets out of landfills. You get green while being green! The bottom line is you want to sell electronics and we want to buy electronics. A perfect match!

What Happens When I Sell My Electronics?

As soon as we receive your used electronics and gadgets (such as used cell phones, used laptops etc.), we inspect them to be sure their condition matches your evaluation. We'll notify you via email once your item has been received and inspected, and again when your payment has been sent. The whole process takes about a week once we receive a box from you.

What Does Gazelle Do With My Used Electronics?

Gazelle believes that electronics recycling starts with reuse. After we buy electronics and gadgets, we evaluate their condition. When we receive items that are still in working condition, we extend their lives by removing all personal data from them, and selling the electronics through a variety of retail and wholesale outlets. Items without market value are recycled responsibly.

RusmackedVolvo blog

I am Freya Svensson. I am the ultimate Volvo Target Market personified.
I am a Swedish soccer-mom of 2, living in Pasadena, California, and a
loyal Rusnak Volvo customer.

This blog is part of a campaign documenting and sharing my ride in
dealing with Rusnak Volvo & Volvo North America, to get the faulty
transmission Rusnak put in my Volvo replaced. In 2006 at 61,000 miles
the transmission failed in my Volvo XC70. Luckily it was covered under
Extended Warranty. However, having a new transmission did not alleviate
the problems I experienced — my car was still slamming into gear,
revving out of control when I tried to pass cars or accelerating after a
stop light. I kept on bringing this up during my scheduled services at
Rusnak (as a good customer) but the Extended Warranty company was "never
able to duplicate the issue". 3 years and 35,000 miles later my Extended
Warranty expired, and all of a sudden Rusnak was able to duplicate
issue, and recommended the transmission be replaced again. This time
around I would have to foot the bill — a hefty $5,100.

My argument is that Volvo gave me a faulty transmission to begin with,
and that they should replace it. Period. Everyone I have spoken with —
the Service Manager at Rusnak Volvo, Volvo Customer Service, The
Territorial Manager for Volvo, and finally, the kind people in the
office of the President of Volvo North America — agrees that a
transmission SHOULD last much longer than 3 yrs/35,000 miles, but
unfortunately they are only willing to cover $1,300 of the cost, which
leaves me the remaining $3,800.

Until they change their mind I intend to Facebook, Tweet and Blog about
my experience.

I Want My Western Bacon Cheeseburger!


 

301Works.org

301Works is a working group of participating companies, and is now being managed as an initiative of the Internet Archives.

The working group is made up of a group of companies involved in what has been come to be known as 'URL shortening'. The companies offer — as at least one aspect of their services — a way for users to take long URLs and to convert them into something much smaller. The primary motive for URL shortening is to diminish the number of characters involved, which is quite important in communications solutions like Twitter or SMS, which are quite character constrained. Secondary motivations include avoidance of breaking URLs across lines within email and documents, ease of recall, and analytics.

The analytics aspect arises as the second part of URL shortening. Once a long URL (for example, a NY Times Op-Ed piece, 'http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/08/opinion/08thu1.html') is shortened by a service (to 'http://bitly.net/14KKjR' in this case) then the service must catch all clicks on the short URL and redirect the clicker to the long one. And the service can count the clicks, and gather all sort of information, like time, location, and so on.

This works fine as long as the URL shortening companies are up and running. When they go down, there are problems for users who are seeking to access through redirection what the initial URL referenced. And if a company goes out of business, or simply wishes to discontinue the URL redirection side of their business, users are potentially worst off. Short URLs embedded in media will cease to work, which is at the least annoying, and in the case where the short URLs are critical to the business, organization or individual who created them, replacing them with the original URLs or new short URLs might be costly.

Listropolis | All Your List Are Belong to Us

It's been said that if you can't find what you're looking for, make it yourself. In searching for a list of lists, we noticed an obvious lack of sites that aggregate said lists, so Listropolis was born. We will be adding random lists that we find across the web, or lists submitted by our readers. Every list will give credit where credit is due, and will provide a link to the original list. Have we said list enough? Get used to it. But seriously, who doesn't love a good list?
