The Time has Come: 4 Resolutions to Add To Your List for 2012

As 2011 winds down, it’s time to start making goals for the new year. These can be anything from learning a new skill to losing a few pounds.

2012 resolutions

If you’re not sure what to put on your list of resolutions this year, we have a few suggestions:

Travel: Never seen the ocean? Want to stand in four states at once? No matter how near or far your desired travel destination is, make it a goal this year to see it. You only live once, so get out and see what’s out there!

Read a book each Month: Whether it’s paperback, hardback or an eBook, resolve to actually read several books this year. How long has it been since you’ve done that? Check out the New York Times Best Sellers list for some inspiration.

Learn Something New: Whether it’s learning a new language or how to ballroom dance, there are lots of easy ways to learn new skills. You could download podcasts to your iPod or iPhone, buy a DVD or listen to a CD while driving to and from work. You’re never too old to learn something new.

Clean out the Closets: How much junk do you have shoved in closets, drawers or under the bed? Take time this year to clean those areas—then donate, sell or reuse the things you find. Goodwill and the Salvation Army are great places to donate clothes or home goods and, of course, we’ll buy the electronics you find!

What resolutions have you made for 2012?

Android Activates 700,000 New Devices Each Day

According to an article released today by PCWorld, Android device activations are nothing to scoff at. Take a look at these numbers, as reported by Ian Paul:

“Every day more than 700,000 people sign up for a new Android device, Google’s Android chief, Andy Rubin, said late Tuesday via Twitter and Google+. That works out to nearly 5 million new Android users every week…”

And, in case you were wondering, this does not include any resold or refurbished devices—only new devices.

While we don’t know how many of these are new users, what we can assume is that at least some of these people are upgrading—therefore they now have an old device that needs a new home. Since Android powers both smartphones and tablets, there’s an array of devices that may now be sitting idle.

If you’re one of these new Android adopters, your unused device can be used for more than a paper weight or dust collector. Actually, it’s probably worth a decent bit of cash! Visit our simple calculator to find out how much your device is worth—then print the prepaid shipping label and you’re well on your way to some easy cash.

Do you use an Android-powered device? Was it your first device, or did you upgrade from something else?
