Do Not Put Your Bank Details Into PayPal

There are fundamental problems with PayPal. I have just experienced the most dreadful haunting problem with PayPal. I know there are probably others out there that have also had similar experiences: but I will be specific.
Firstly PayPal persuade you to put them in so your payments are instant and secure. Rubbish. Put your credit card details in and the payment is just as fast and secure.

Courtesy and the Compensation Culture

A recent visit to the dentist and very incompetent rendering of a filling resulted in a very rude and unapologetic conversation.
So called professionals now don't extend the common courtesy of expressing their concern or sorrow at the predicament which has probably resulted from their actions. They now deny all liability so protecting their insurance company.
But at the same time they do nothing for their customer base. All their customers must be particularly pissed off with their attitude.

1984 and all that

As we walk outside through Westfields Southern Terrace, a man stands clear in the middle of the throng and rails, alone, shouting at the very top of his voice that this is all to end. We are blind and we are all lost.
Not sure it was an evangalist. Not sure that he was not on drugs or drink.
But there was something more disconcerting. Everybody looked at him for a second and then looked away. Was he going to attack anyone? No.

Not The Greatest iPhone Upgrade!

Just upgraded my Apple iPhone to Version 3.0 software.
What madness that they do not extend the camera function in the Version 3.0 upgrade to include the video functionality of the 3GS. The hardware is the same (albeit with lower resolution). We know there are lots of jail-break applications that do this. Apple are just forcing people to upgrade their phones to get this functionality - which they already should have had in the first place.
