cyberSaps business: blogging news, internet biz, communities, UK angle
That's a nice bit of fun. With my stylesheets re written to be left or right. Maybe tomorrow I'll make some different colours, or maybe with some completely different designs.
I used the style switcher at A List Apart. Haven't tested it on all browsers/platforms yet. I know there's problems with NN4 but, well, the stylesheet I'm using has problems with that old browser anyway.
"It is vital we realise this and move on."
"Whereas in 2002 PDAs' main use was as a personal organiser, this year the top function is as a business diary."
"Why Should Businesses Blog?
Simple. No one listens, anymore, to sanitized marketing messages."
There you go. Real gossip is far more interesting than wading through marketing speak. If you write marketing speak then you're scared of writing anything interesting. Maybe because your boss will tear you apart, maybe because you think your customers will tear you apart. Oh, the angst!
"A chip makes it tough for the cartridges to be refilled.
Epson's microchip is known as 'Intellidge' and has become the norm for all new Epson printers. There are several versions of these chips, in different cartridge designs. Meanwhile, numerous companies are selling chip resetters for Epson cartridges, which programme the chips to factory specs, showing full ink levels and providing the same number of cycles as when the chip was new, but they are costly.

You will be assimilated.
"People love things for free, and free is a hard price to beat,..
Games are heavily branded and not readily substitutable."
Ads in Opera, Eudora don't seem to be the answer to me. Offering a better product and better support seems like a good one, at least that's what I'd pay for.
"The Guardian is also planning a first for web-publishing - an advertising-free version of its site, which users will be able to view for £20 a year. Annual subscription to the Guardian will cost £98.57 a year or £10 a month."
That sounds quite expensive. Even though I read the Guardian, nearly everyday, It's too much at £99 a year. £20 is OK.
""The realities of web publishing mean that we also have to seek opportunities to maximise our revenues," said Emily Bell, the editor-in-chief of Guardian Unlimited."
In other words we spent a boat load on a content management system, and the fees and up keep of it is way too expensive, so we need to cream our readers a couple of £million a year to pay for it.
Oh, if only they had gone for a cheap blogging system.
