Tech Talk News: Type with Caution, Spammers Now Using Cybersquatting

This is a interesting, funny hustle. People register domains like yaoo.com so when you try to send a e-mail to an address and have a typo they send an e-mail with advertising deals. If you have a pay per click advertisement you might get easy money. Usually they have dream vacation or diet plan advertisements which could easily spark interest. But what if you are mailing sensitive material your info can now be lost in cyberspace with some unknown individual. So take time e-mailing especially when it is important, sensitive information. Check out this whole cybersquatting swindle works after the jump.

Let me just get to it, the $30 add-on, will NO longer be unlimited after Oct 2nd, it will be capped at 5G! Now if you don’t know what that means, let me break it down a little for you, the data you use on the phone will stay unlimited, but with the add-on aka tethering when you connect another device to that phones Data stream, you will only get 5G’s out of it, per month -_-

I suppose this is due to expectancy of the iPhone coming to sprint, because when it does a rush of NEW user’s will come to sprint, putting a strain on the system, so they are bring to get ahead of it, So you my enjoy endless hours on the iPhone it’s self, but when you want to jump on your laptop using the that data stream(Turns your phone into a WiFi hotspot), you better think “Let me be quick” although 5G’s is nothing to sneeze at!!(Although the mention of 300mb’s worries me) Oh and apparently it Does NOT apply to Tablet owners, s there is still some Good News here!!!
