One day after my new car was driven off the lot, some big truck completely destroyed my front bumper. The car dealer recommended that I take the car to Sunnyvale Collision. The car needed special parts as it was a new model and it had to be special ordered from Germany and Sam took extra special care to make sure the car was restored to factory new condition. He worked with the auto insurance companies to ensure that everything went through smoothly. Getting into an accident is traumatic and I can definitely say that Sunnyvale Collision is a great place to go when that happens.

We buy all of our office supply / food from safeway.com and it is much easier than other online delivery services. Our office buys everything from paper towels to cases of diet coke and they deliver it right to our office. They also will give you free products via email if you order online. The delivery is free and there is no minimum fee. Everyone in the office can easily make their requests and add to the shopping list. Great service!

Great site for information on how to shoot digital video. This site is geared more for the professional or semi-professional shooter. The forum is a wealth of information on everything from lighting equipment to gear.

Great software for your iphone or ipod as you can easily convert youtube videos or basically any video you watch on your PC to an mpeg4 video. All you do is watch the video on your computer while Audials is running in the background and the video is downloaded and automatically converted to mpeg4 for downloading into your iphone. Same feature works for internet radio as well, basically you listen to the internet radio and the MP3 is created automatically.

The business of photography for future pros - This is the perfect starting place for amateur photographer who want to turn pro. Meaning they want to quit their day job and become a professional. I have tried to make some money in the past in photography, but I never aspired to make a living off of it. My goal was to only make enough money to afford buying all of my prime lenses. I found this site and it does have some great lessons for those wishing to make some money off photography

Very personable photographer and blogger in SF - I met Carla briefly at the BlogHer conference in SF and she had a very easy and charismatic personality. Being a photographer myself, I can definitely appreciate this in a professional photographer. She has a great site and some terrific cards that are available. If you are looking for a portrait photographer in SF, definitely check out her work.

Get rid of your excess swag and save the environment - I ran into this company at a recent blog conference and they really have quite an interesting idea. Everyone goes home with tons of swag after a conference and I know I probably have bags and bags of useless swag at home. I usually just throw it out, but you can send it to this company and they give you mysterious points for donating your swag and then they recycle it. Better than dumping it in a landfill. Pretty cool idea... save the environment and I'm sure company profits from this as well.

Ibackup lets me sleep at night - I have many critical files at my business and they need to all be secured offsite just in case. I tried ibackup and have been happy with them so far. However, I have not "needed" the backup files as the #$# has not hit the fan, but I can see my files being backed up and hopefully my data is secured.

Baytechwebdesign custom designed a great site for me (www.kaliaskincare.com) - They are a very reputable firm and I would trust them again to build a website for me. After they give you the quote they stick to it and keep working on your site until it meets your satisfaction. I recommend them all the time to my colleagues. Their design skills are also excellent.

Wonderful resource for AV knowledge - I first heard of AVSforum when I bought my first front PJ screen from AVScience years ago. The forum is also a useful tool for finding out the latest information on all sorts of AV gear. When I first got into HTPC, this was my main resource for setting up an entire home theater room. Everything from the front projector to the theater seats were all purchased based upon recommendations from this website. Later, when I furnished my office with plasmas and LCD HDTVs, I used the powerbuys off of the website to buy them. I would also highly encourage anyone who is active in the forums here to become an AVS club member, it is well worth the price of admission.

Best DVD player for your plasma - If you just bought an HDTV, the odds are you are using the wrong DVD player for it. There are many new upscaling DVD players out there by big name brands like sony/toshiba, etc... and they all claim to upscale to HD. The reality is that they have really bad scalers in them and rarely do they do full 1080p. They also often lack the ability to play divx and other types of media.

The Oppo DVD player is on par with DVD players that cost 5 times the price... they include a Faroudja scaler which is usually only found in very high end dvd players (not the cheapy sony/jvc/toshiba... more like Marantz and name brands like that.

Bottom line: oppo has the best bang for the buck DVD player out on the market for HDTVs. Don't waste your money going to circuit city and buying a big name sony dvd player that is vastly inferior to the OPPO units. Just read all of the awards this company has won... they are the best around for the $$$

Diablo, WoW, and starcraft oh my - They have created some of the best games of all time... nobody has been able to touch them in the RTS genre. It is predicted that Blizzard will eventually take over hollywood studios as the gaming market grows.

Probably some of the best designed gifts for clients and family/friends. They will even custom print your name etched on a glorious wooden box. The foods are delicious and they have been a hit with everyone who receives them. I think this is one of those gifts that clients and referral sources definitely remember.

I recently started to use slack and it is so much more than just a message board. The ability to search, upload documents and share real time is almost like having your co workers right next to you even though they are in other cities.

I have been following and using the zam network of sites for the past 10 years and they are a valuable resource for any MMO gamer. Their sites include Wowhead, Thottbot, and MMOUI. Each of their sites is a respectably run entity where they carefully monitor both spam and advertisements. Content is always original and the community in the forums is always helpful. If you are playing any of the MMOs out there including WOW or Rift you should check out this website and their network of sites.

I was doing a search for Zooey Deschanel and somehow came across Slidebomb.com. Very interesting way to share information around a given subject. You can compile throughout the web images, videos and links around a given topic and easily share it with others. Clearly designed to be viral I hope their efforts pay off and people start using this site.

Anyone who remembers playing games on those floppy disks on a Commodore 64 will love the revival of this brand. I remember that commodore was the big rival of apple back in the day. Of course they include an emulator to play all of the old c64 games. If playing labyrinth doesn't bring back some memories then this is probably not the system for you...
Labyrinth video for your viewing enjoyment.

I ate at Nobu in vegas and the black cod miso was probably one of the most amazing dishes I have ever had a chance to taste. I did some research online on how to make it and came across this food blog. Vienna who writes this blog lets both her charisma and love of food show through and they have some great recipes including what I was looking for... black cod miso. I'm going to be waiting for her to start doing some video blogging so we can all watch her prepare some of these tasty dishes.

I have personally ordered from Claflin many times for office medical equipment and they have an excellent customer service department and fast and reliable shipping. They have products for both medical offices as well as products for patients such as scooters. Prices are extremely competitive and often lower than what I have found else where. They have been in business since 1817 and are one of the most well recognized medical supply companies in the healthcare sector.

I highly recommend this book and website for those individuals looking to learn more about how nutrition relates to diseases and health. The book is geared for physicians but I think almost anyone could benefit from this book. Great knowledge base and a valuable addition to anyone's medical library. It covers almost all common diseases from diabetes to eczema and how nutrition influences the disease process and how the foods people consume can aid in the treatment of these diseases.
