How to Make Money from Google Voice

This is a chance for me to introduce an easy way to make some extra income—or at least to tell you about a method to make easy money if you are in certain geographic locations. I have seen some people doing this and making money: they are essentially selling Google Voice accounts on Fiverr.

I hope I have not confused you. If you are wondering what the hell Fiverr.com is and how is it related to Google Voice, please read on.

Google Voice is a telecommunications service that allegedly has millions of users. It gives you one number for all your phones, and enables you to make calls and send text messages to phone numbers in the U.S. and Canada for free (at least free for 2013), and to international numbers at super low rates. You can also make PC-to-Phone calls within North America and PC-to-PC voice and video calls worldwide between users of Google Voice and Google Video Chat Plugin. In other words, you can use the Google Voice cell phone app to place outbound calls, and when you get inbound calls to your Google Voice number, the call is forwarded to your phones.

Google Voice can also be used for cheap international calling purposes. Although there are apps by other providers that offer free international calls, I would still pay a little for the added convenience that comes with Google Voice. I hope I have convinced you that Google Voice is such a good thing that many people would want to set it up.

Frustrating though it may seem, the service is only available to U.S. residents. However, if you are from USA and leave the country, GV will still work for you. Some people want to use the service but they don’t meet with the prerequisites, i.e. they don’t live in the U.S. or Canada, or else they may want to register multiple Google Voice accounts for family or business use but they don’t have the time to do that. That’s exactly your business opportunity.

How to Harness Fiverr

Fiverr is a marketplace for people to share the things that they are willing to do for $5, rather like a mini-freelancer website. You post an ad on Fiverr.com offering some service at $5 dollars, people see your ad, and if they need the service and want to buy it, they will click on the “Order Now ($5)” button and proceed to Paypal.

In Fiverr.com, “Gig” means any small service at price, $5 so when you post an ad quoted at $5, it is a gig.

If you live in the USA or Canada, you have the facility to create Google Voice accounts for people in your country and around the world. Please check out http://fiverr.com: you can see the leads there all marked as $5 and find the “Google Account Setup service” there. The price is probably $5 for 2 Google Voice accounts. Some sellers are already getting many sales, and now you can join them, post your ad, and get money.

If you don’t know how to write, please have a look at other sellers’ ads. You may write something like this: “You can use Google Voice to make calls in USA and Canada for free, and make international calls at super low rates. I can create as many Google Voice accounts as you wish. One Gig includes one Google Voice account, along with the register email address and a Google Voice number from your favorite area. If you need a GV number of a specific area in the US or Canada, please let me know when you order it.”

With Fiverr you can easily make somewhere from $100 to $500 a day, and as your gig becomes older you can make more money by outsourcing.

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

There comes a time when we may be searching online and don’t want the browser to remember our footsteps. The reasons don’t always have to be what we obviously think of as the main reason; for example, sometimes, you may not want Safari to remember your passwords or prompt you to enter your password when surfing the web.

Whatever the reason, we may think that we are totally in the clear with Private Browsing on Safari and the other browsers on a Mac. However, a quick Terminal command can bring up every website you’ve visited. How do you do this? Also, how do you clear your tracks for good? We will provide both answers and more today.

    What Does Private Browsing Do?

    When activated, Private Browsing on Safari prevents your browsing history from being kept in the history tab of the application. Along with this, it doesn’t autofill information that you have saved in the browser. In this mode, you essentially become incognito and any references of previous use is essentially hidden when you are in private mode.

    For example: if you are on Facebook or filling out a form and some information or your login is already filled in in the spaces provided, this is called autofill. It’s activated by simply clicking Safari next to the Apple symbol in the menubar and selecting Private Browsing, then clicking “OK” to the prompt.

    The reasons behind private mode differ for each individual. While we won’t go into all of those reasons, one thing that is  important to remember is that private browsing doesn’t forget the websites you visit. As we will see later on, Macs keep a second copy of the websites you visit in either mode. If you are in frantic mode looking for a solution to this, look no further.

    The Terminal Archive

    While Safari does a good job of keeping your search history out of prying eyes in the history tab, there is a less-than-obvious way to view a full list of visited websites on Mac. This is done in Terminal; the command-line emulator that allows you to make changes to your Mac.

    Terminal is located in the Utilities folder on your Mac. Once activated, simply add the command:

    dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host

    Once you hit “enter”, a list of the visited sites appear. Showing only the domains, the sites appear in a format of:

    Key: h_name :(website domain)ipv4 :1

    However, there’s no need to fear—there is a way you can clear this information from Terminal with a command that’s just as simple.

    Clearing Your Tracks

    Just as simply as you were able to enter the command to view the websites, you can clear the cache that Terminal showed you with the comamnd:

    dscacheutil -flushcache

    As the command denotes, this literally “flushes” the domains from Terminal. This does not prevent the record from continuing to be recorded for future sites, however, so if that’s an issue for you, repeat this process regularly.

    Other Browsers and Private Browsing

    Other browsers have this form of privacy mode for their service. They promise many of the same things as Safari, but they do not have the same Terminal issue due to how this command only presents websites visited on Safari (the browser Macs come shipped with).

    If you use Firefox, you’ll notice that its private mode is also known as Private Browsing. Chrome calls private mode Incognito, while Internet Explorer refers to it as InPrivate Browsing. Opera is the newest to the scene, denoting it as Private Tab. Safari is the oldest well-known browser with this feature.

    As you can see, despite Private Browsing not being 100% private, Terminal allows for your browser to be. In what ways has Terminal helped your life or allowed you to become more productive? Let us know in the comments below.
