QR Coding - What is it? and Why do I need it ? Your missing the boat if you dont understand this. - 01/19/11 04:35 PM
QR Coding - 2 dimensional coding versus - Bar Coding - 1 dimensional coding. Whats all that mean? 2 dimensional coding doesn't just read a code, like a Bar Code reader, it actually makes their reader perform an act, your still looking at me like What? Is it new technology? No - I had read that it was invented back in the 90s by a guy named "Denso" that worked for a Toyota Manufacturing Plant - he wanted the robots on the assembly line to perform different funtions at different times, so when something came down the line - the robot (0 comments)

Just about every single month in 2010, exceeded the previous year - looking at December 2010 sales - it was up 61% over Dec. 2009 - which by the way itself, was up 75% from Dec 2008 I think things are looking good for both sides - Sellers: Buyers are here buying Buyers: We are still back at an average of 2001 - 2002 pricing - great deals to be had. And interest rates - you don't need me telling you (2 comments)
Kailua Kona Condo Sales Up 61% for December 2010 and an astounding 84% for the year - 01/04/11 03:30 PM
Kailua Kona Real Estate is well into its recovery period! Take a look at the December sales statistics. December 2010 outsold Dec 2009 by an astounding 61% ! And don't think 2009 must have been a bad year, because 2009 outsold 2008 by 75% - ok your probably thinking what I am thinking - well 2008 must have been a bad year - hold on - let me go back and check ................ Ok I am back - 2008 was down, from 2007, by 20% - not really that bad - bottom line is you don't have to be a rocket (0 comments)
