Invest for Free with Robinhood

Stumbled across a great site ( for those that are on the fence about investing in the stock market or just are tired of paying fees on trades.  Better yet, Robinhood brokerage is giving out a free random stock with every new signup.

Robinhood provides for FREE trades.  This brokerage is not for day traders, but so far I am hooked.

Signup with my link and hey, they will also toss me a chance to spin the wheel and get another free stock.

+My Updates since signing up (10/15/2018)
I signed up and recieved one share of Chesapeake Energy (CHK) Value $4.58. :)

Was hoping to get lucky and get a share of Apple or Facebook.  It was fun. Since spreading the word, I have received another free stock Zynga (ZNGA) Value $4.08.

You might have better luck.  Perfect opportunity to start investing today.

Once you sign-up you can get your own link to share.  They allow a max of $500 to be earned in free stocks from referrals.

Click the link and check it out yourself.

USB Flash Drives have more than One Use Do not trust unknown or free USB devices. It is recommended to look at purchasing more expensive USB sticks that have signed firmware. People have been using USB devices to deploy malware through Trojan techniques. Either malware is copied to the device with the hope of people plugging the device in and clicking on the file or it automatically executes on insertion. BADUSB has also now afforded the opportunity to include payloads into modified USB firmware that execute on driver installation of the device. The malware payload cannot be scanned by traditional detection methods since it resides in firmware. Other techniques, also utilizing the failure to check for signed firmware, are to implement cross platform scripting to execute keyboard based commands on insertion.

With Windows Media Center taking the last death blow from Microsoft, the Roku 4 might make switching less painless.   Roku 4 pre-order.  Expected Ship Date 10/21/2015.
