6 Strange Ways to Make Money Online

Who needs a part-time job when you can get paid for seeking out smut, selling your hair, or sending text messages?

Joining a Virtual Jury

Summon your inner Judge Judy, pals: It's time to head to court. Virtual court, that is.

Confused? Here's the scoop: A growing number of sites are now offering cash if you'll help lawyers simulate a trial. And you can even do it in your pajamas.

"Attorneys for years have thought they're kind of psychologists when it comes to picking juries," explains Chris Bagby, founder of "The more demographic background we can get them about each juror, the better off they are."

eJury and other similar sites assemble region-specific pools of people to review cases, ranging from a couple of pages to more than a dozen, and then give their opinions on a handful of questions. This gives lawyers insight into how different members of a real jury might respond to arguments when the case actually goes to court.

"It helps them prepare for trial and hopefully present a better case to the jury," says Bagby, himself an attorney with 18 years of practice under his belt.

eJury varies its pay based on how involved each case is. An average case can earn you around $5 to $10.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
