Hitchhiker’s Guide to Green
If you’re more of a road trip kind of traveler, or want to stick to a budget while meeting some new people, you’ll want to check out Ridejoy. If you’re in need of a ride to a nearby attraction, city or town, and you live along the west coast, you can sign into Ridejoy. Just list your travel plans, see matches of other Ridejoy-ers going the same direction and then help you determine costs for splitting trip expenses.
The site focuses primarily on trips that are 50 or more miles, with time spans of an hour or more. And, if you’re a safe driver who wants to get paid to offer up an extra seat in your car, you can be sure to be paid via PayPal or check after the ride is over. And, if your passenger decides not to carpool with you at the last minute, you still get paid. Find a ride at Ridejoy.com or download the free app here.
Just in time for the start of a new school year, Canon will be placing its new PowerShot cameras in stores next month.
The PowerShot XS500 IS and XS10 IS are both “super zoom” cameras guaranteed to make you feel like a professional photographer (and create prints like one, too). The SX500 IS model is priced at $329.99 and the SX160 IS will sell for $229.99. See what other deals the camera company has in store at Canon.com.
