Dot Com Pho – The $5,000 T-Shirt Edition

Normally, Dot Com Pho is held on the patio of Pho Ba Co. We have never dined inside the restaurant before because it’s always sunny in Southern California, and outdoor Pho is the best Pho. However, we got forced indoor today, not because of rain, but because of the sun. We’re in the middle of a heat wave and it’s just too damn hot to have Pho outside! Being inside had its blessing. The restaurant is extremely loud and that set up the perfect 3-way microphone test.

In addition to finding out which mic is the best for a noisy environment, this episode of Dot Com Pho features Pho menu #17, a Pho accident, Sally learning how to drive and then shopping for an angry sport car, a blinding gadget of the week, and I get paid $5,000 to wear a T-shirt!

Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. We had a great turn out of 21 people attending today’s edition. Follow me on Twitter to find the time and place of the next Dot Com Pho.

    I thought you’re from Canada John? BTW, one think which I wanted to ask from you is that why are you using Infolinks text ad in this blog? Aren’t you making good money? Is it important to place text ads from Infolinks?

    1. John Chow says:

      I’m going back to Canada next week. Inforlinks is one of the blog’s sponsor.

        In time for Dot Com Pho 8/18?

        1. John Chow says:

          Yep! Looking forward to it,

  2. Can I get that T-shirt with my blog’s name on it? Or if I have permission can I put any other text on it?

    1. John Chow says:

      Why would you want a t-shirt with both your blog name and IncomeEDU’s name on it?

    Sounds pretty good with sony bluetooth mic but i like Sony ECM-HW2 – Bluetooth Wireless Microphone System for Video Cameras… this device mounts into the active interface shoe of a Sony Handicam camera, and enables you to capture the subject’s and the camera operator’s voices from up to 300 feet (91.44 m) away. Next time i visit pho ba co, i will try menu #17 btw, are you going back to Canada for visit?

    1. John Chow says:

      Sounds good but I don’t have a Sony camcorder. I’m flying to Vancouver on Tuesday.

  4. This is an interesting, way of running a profitable blog. One serious money making post, the other, dare I say, a fun post.

    Very interesting

      It’s OK. I got 10 people wearing “I’m with John Chow, Bitch!” shirts for Affiliate Summint. ::)

    5000$ for a t-shirt, is plain awesome.

    Can’t make the 8/18 one but hopefully I will be in Canada in the Fall. What does the scheduled look like then or is it too early?

    1. John Chow says:

      In the fall, I’ll be back in sunny California.
