I have become more and more cynical of people who seem to think the only way to get on in life is to promote yourself through LinkedIn.
I am sure these people are on commission or something (or spend most of their professional life on LinkedIn and most of their personal time on Facebook!)
I use Skype mainly for intercontinental calls. Whilst there are indoubted cost benefits the quality of the "line" (audio over IP) is often very poor with interference and or dropping of sound.
If you want to save money - great!
If you expect comparable quality to a phoneline - you might be disappointed!
Have been buying from Amazon almost since they started in the UK. Always found prices to be competitive and service good. When I have had the occasional problem their customer services have been reasonably helpful. Keep up the good work!
I will not criticise the simple payment facilities that Paypal offer; they definitely fulfil an important role in the market for reliable, secure payments with small merchants who would not otherwise be able to take card payments (i.e. on eBay).
HOWEVER, PayPal (in my view) take advantage of this by charging over-inflated commissions on payments received which go way beyond any actual costs associated with the transaction!
eBay buying Paypal was a clever move; now they salami slice your selling price and your payment! Two commissions/profits for the price of one!
I regularly use Youtube for tutorial videos for my hobbies (R/C models and SCUBA diving). There are always videos on there to raise a smile too! I have known people to teach themselves welding on the back of YouTube so give it a go. There is something for everyone.
Only niggle: the recommended videos suggested after playing one seem a bit random sometimes and sometimes not at all relevant!
Have bought everything from car parts to clothes, toys to tools on eBay. You have to know your stuff in advance as many sellers exagerate the quality of their items but you have to be realistic; if something looks to cheap to be true, it almost certainly is.
The internet's biggest hypermarket!
I ordered a service item from Simply Scuba which meant I was in a bit of a hurry for the item. I ordered online one evening and the item was despatched the following day, and received the day after that. I could not have asked for a quicker turnaround on the order and this really helped me out.
Prices are not always the lowest but for such quick service I can accept this!
