How much a month are you paying for these things, software or services?
Many times we find that the free stuff comes with no support. It's also been written that when we use the free stuff we are now the product (example at http://lifehacker.com/5697167/if-youre-not-paying-for-it-youre-the-product ).
This seems to be a wake call that if we want support and more, we have to avoid being the product or turn to OPEN SOURCE SOLUTIONS which are often without support you can make demands on.
If you need on demand, great support it appears we'll be paying monthly.
My computer was hacked into recently and a letter from one of my hotmail accounts went to everyone in my contact list, which I did not send. My hotmail accounts were hacked also. I was speaking with some at Tech-on Wire in India, I believe. A man was supposed to fix my computer and charged me $180 to do this. The computer was fine for a while, but now I cannot get into any of the hotmail accounts. I cannot get into Hotmail help as it says the server is down when I try to change my passwords. So I decided to try Incredimail and I really like it. It has such cute bells and whistles. It is not as straight forward as Windows Live Hotmail, but it is okay. I am having a problem getting help from them too. What is going on with these people? Has anyone else had this experience. I don't know what other email program to use. Can anyone help me? Is Incredimail safe to use?
