OK, tell her you MUST buy the laptop with the AdSense money in order to write it off as an expense at the end of the year on your taxes.
If she doesn't buy that reason, sell her on eBay and get an HDTV with the proceeds.
Look at it this way: How can you (or she) go to grad school without an adequate laptop? :-)
I generally find your post to be insightful, articulate and well thought out, however your recent post left me with my jaw on the floor.
Our friend wants the laptop, not his wife!
If he were to use your suggestion, she might take that to mean SHE should be using it.
Egad, protocol has been breeched.
owner edit: fixed name...duh
|my adsense earnings have risen to a point that is has been detected by my wife's monetary radar. |
LOL.... happened at our house too.
I did manage to get a new Nikon D70 and some accessories for it last spring before my wife caught on. I think buying the camera blew my cover!
Need to learn how to fly below the monetary radar...
In that case sonar works
And tell me why people get married again?

Give your wife a quarterly Profit and Loss Statement. Adsense = turnover. Geeky things = business expense.

My wife just told me she wants to visit Rom in Italy.
I told her how expensive all the toll on the Italian highways is.
She answered: We take enough time that You can make a lot of photos, some nice pages about Rom, so all the journey is business expenses.
The effect of wives on adsense earnings is a matter of great import. For one thing, it reduces your take. Secondly, in some cases, it provides a disincentive to the goal of trying to work harder to make more money. It's very reminiscent of the tax system...you begin to start pondering how things can be "hidden" or "downplayed".
wife to husband: "what did you make yesterday?"
husband to wife: "Two dollars. Epc has crashed. Looks permanent this time. Sigh."
wife to husband: "Don't be upset. It was nice while it lasted"
husband to wife: "Yeah, these things are never guaranteed. I'll just have to live with it I guess."
1. husband maintains that daily earnings are never more than two dollars.
2. when questioned by wife about newly purchased items like digital camcorders and laptops, husbands maintains that such items have been put "on a payment plan".

Almost forgot. Remember to be "very upset" when epc has "permanently crashed"
My wife has only made one rather astute observation about my AdSense money:
"Are you setting aside any of that money for taxes? If not, we're gonna be screwed!"
Also, she's now looking for a topic to start her own little money maker :)
Thank GOD I am not married as yet

Do you have any complaint against any ebay or amazon product?
Some of the comments here make me glad I've decided to never have another husband
but you have to reconsider after his adsense account terminated by the google for invalid clicks
"Just make sure she comes with COOKING 2.2 and CLEANING 1.3 installed"
And be sure to consider a replacement warranty. That's really important for later.

And you would prefer it didn't get detected? In some partnerships that would be considered deceit.
