Fetchnotes, the Twitter-like note-taking app that employs @ usernames and # hashtags to keep your to-do lists organized, is releasing an updated version today that now connects the items you mention in your notes with their real-world counterparts. For example, when you tag things like #movies, #songs, #books, #read, or other common terms, Fetchnotes will go out and find the product mentioned and then add a link to the item into the app.
Please read the warning on my blog about investing in shares before reading further.
One to watch.

Please read my warning elsewhere on my blog, please take proper advice before buying or selling any shares.
Life has started to become simpler.
Today Mum is fully in recovery mode after her knee replacement operation. Had a chat with her at my sister’s house
My business partner is fully back in his normal extremely productive mode.
I’m starting to have fun again, our shorteners sites have been created and our other two sites are now propogated with big G’s adverts.
So what did I do today.
Helped one friend with advice on a debt matter.
Worked with one client on twitter, linkedin and Facebook exposure.
Spoke to a prospective source of new business and after seeing several pieces of his work I was happy to recommend him as an expert in his field on LinkedIn.
Read a few blogs of other good social media folks and decided I’ll actively blog, at least 5 days a week.
Asked one of my LinkedIn groups by way of a Poll if they want the group to go public…. groups can be private on LinkedIn, but then the benefits of search are lost to the group.
I’m still a very active stock market share trader, so I’ve watched one rise on and off all day. Even though the VWAP was corrupted and indicated I should sell (lies, damn lies and statistics … )
Added another one of my twitter’s to a Facebook app to allow me to recommend more great people.
Read LinkedIn messages, connected with a few more, had a thank you from Ray Simmons for his recommendation on LinkedIn for which he truly deserves thanks for his efforts from many other people.
Re-activated several tools on twitter for repeated exposure now that Mike’s back in the groove.
Genuinely excited about the future. Enough for today.
Since I decided again to invest in and sometimes to trade in the stock market it has been interesting to see how much froth and volatility there is on todays markets.
I’m going to just dive in and waffle, see if it all makes sense to you.
Firstly there seems a massive impatience towards quick success, almost as if there is no real acknowledgement of success unless you managed to make it in the day, or in the next hour, next few seconds. There appears a massive NOW NOW NOw, otherwise you failed.
Next there seems a lack of respect for other people’s opinions and other people’s capital. The common practice of renting other people’s capital to sell it short and thereby reduce its value is the snide face of capitalism that cares not for others. A link on how to avoid it may help if you were unaware your online broker was doing this with your shares.
If you are looking to buy a stock it is worth looking at how many shorts are already taken up on the stock. What follows next is a fairly useful link to shorting of shares. Most normal EPIC, tickers can be found through this site. If it runs into millions the chances are that the price is unlikely to rise in the near term very much. Link follows.
Using the upper link, compare Microsoft MSFT with its 8.38 billion shares to Thomas Cook TCG 875 million shares, and you’ll quickly see there are a greater percentage of shares rented out on TCG 80M (at time of writing) than on MSFT 40M. This means short sellers are happy to sell TCG expecting the price to fall later, when they then buy your rented share back and replace it. During that time your holding has been driven down in value, normally without your knowledge.
So allowing for these things what can you do to ensure life is better dealt with the way you would like?
Firstly, accept that there is a widespread manipulation of shares by organisations with much more capital than you. So only risk capital that you can afford to lose, or more likely see a reduction in its value in the short-term. Next take advice, but make sure the person giving the advice knows how to succeed in the stock market.
If you are going to use search to check out a company be aware that it can be manipulated, try using several search engines.
I’m going to sign off for now.
As ever, Simon Hamer

I have just looking at my share portfolio.
5 up in price, 6 are level and 9 are down in price, at 16.09 on Thursday 21 July 2011.
Reviewed all shares prospects mentally in my head. Yes, I may have one or two badly judged purchases. Overall my assessment, is that all have good prospects, and I had this rare overwhelming feeling of a ” bull ” stock market investor.
Thought I’d record it, let’s just see if this is the day the markets started a long bull run, or am I just talking bull.
Time will tell.
Have a great Friday everyone.
Wednesday 10th November 2010
Looked forward to this day for several days.
About every two months Mike and I meet for a full days discussion on planning our joint ventures.
On the 10th December 2010 we will be launching AFGSH and Affiliates Get seen Here Ltd our Affiliate marketing training portal. This is how we see it. There’s a huge amount of hidden income in affiliate marketing, but the only way people will tap their full potential is if they know how to find good programs and understand it is not a get rich quick scheme. They will need training and help.
Slow start to the day, needed petrol and both front tyres pumping up.
Took some envelopes for Mike, as I’d thousands left from a previous mail shot campaign and some gift bags for Fran.
Journey down to Rugby was OK, I’d been several times so I did not have a route planned. Kept thinking I was lost but drove straight to his home without a single wrong turn. Arrived at 10.00. Greated by Fran, Mike was selling customised golf balls as I arrived. Had a cup of tea with Fran whilst Mike finished off his administration tasks. It is a happy house with love flowing in many directions between family members.
Quite a cold day, a bit windy, and we set off for Caffe Nero in town on foot. Short walk of about 10 minutes, Mike was going through the house price drop as we walked, some houses had dropped from £670,000 to £270,000 in Rugby town. Recession and shortage of money, but you wouldn’t know it by the queue in Cafe Nero. We go to these places because of the free Wifi provided. Whilst waiting for Mike to arrive the couple next to me were discussing Facebook and LinkedIn, had to smile. The guy thought Facebook has peaked, I expressed my agreement, but I’m aware the readers here may probably disagree. I think its growth speed has peaked, and it is quite a complicated site to use to its best.
Mike arrived back from the counter and sat down with drinks and a chocolate swirl to share (I’m watching my weight a bit). Wifi was a bit iffy, slow connection speed and the electric sockets near to where we sat had no power to them. We had a bit of a chat with the guy next to us who was a aircraft engine specialist, but for engines that are used to create power rather than those on aircraft. His friend from the town had left by now and we engaged him in conversation. Mike kept popping out for a cigarette and discovered another restaurant with Wifi. We all left and went there. I talked to their staff about the need for the restaurant to have a twitter account to gain publicity.
Mike managed to get the Wifi working on his laptop and I had good mobile reception on my Android phone.
So we decided upon several sections for the portal.
A public forum, a “What works for you” shoutout section, assistance, create your own survey, a lobbying form with customization, affiliate managers section, newsletter management and obviously as many affiliate programs as we can find from credible companies. If you can think of any more that we should add please comment.
Suffice to say we had our usual crazy hour at the end of the day when the creative bit kicks in.
More on that next week when I can confirm we have secured the domain names.
