I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Cool new app - at least it's new to me.

This has nothing to do with gambling, but when I find something new that I like I want to pass it along. I got an app today called Paper Karma. Do you get junk mail? Well whip out your phone with this app, snap a picture of the junk mail, and send it off to paper karma and they get the sender to stop sending you junk mail. I have no idea how well this works, but even if it just cuts some of the junk I'll be happy.

If you have your phone rooted (basically giving your phone admin rights), you can get some more cool apps like barnacle wifi tether. This lets you turn your phone into a hotspot for free, this really comes in handy especially if you travel alot.

I have an Android phone on Verizon. I didn't need to root it, but I use a free app called Portable Wifi Hotspot. It works great and I never have to pay for wifi in hotels anymore.

Have you ever compared Portable Wifi Hotspot with PDANet? If so, would apprec your opinion.

I started out with FoxFi which was good but then they started limiting the amount of minutes you could use the hotspot. When I searched for free wifi hotspot apps I downloaded Portable Wifi Hotspot and another called called Wifi Tethering Shortcut tool. Since the first one has always worked well I haven't tried the 2nd one.

I haven't tried PDAnet. Does it work well for you?

Haven't tried any yet, but have read several good reviews about PDANet.

I believe PDANet only works for a certain number of minutes and then you have to pay.
