Crappy Chinese Ebay Sellers...

Sometimes I really despise the cheap Chinese vendors on ebay... they do things like list an item with X amount of inventory even though they don't have the item... here is one such example:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Walkera-DEVO-8S-2-4G-8CH-Colorful-Touch-Screen-Transmitter-w-RX802-Receiver-/141370297926?hash=item20ea538e46

Despite you buying the item and them listing it shipped, when you ask them for a tracking number, they will claim it is not in stock, they're basically total liars.

This seller, TomTop is actually one of the largest Chinese sellers on the Internet, they sell everywhere including Newegg and Ebay and have multiple accounts.  They also have accounts under other names... you should avoid these liars when possible:

ilastone
tomtop (or any other variation)
duoduobox
tomorrowtop
antiquechina2009
losmee
shocwo2015

Avoiding buying anything from these liars will keep you a lot happier, just go in and read the negative reviews.  One way they like to respond to negative reviews when someone complains about them not shipping is they always claim to have shipped the item and maybe it got lost, total lies.

Spam from Fanbox

As they say... if it's too good to be true, it usually is.  Don't fall for stupid scams if you get an e-mail from Fanbox claiming you need to setup security or reset your password and you have XXXX.XX amount in earnings, report that e-mail as SPAM.

Maybe if we started suing spyware/adware companies regularly (Superfish)

A class action suit has been filed against Lenovo and Superfish, hopefully this will curb manufacturers from doing crap like this in the future or at least have them evaluate crapware that's preloaded onto their products:

Lenovo and Superfish, are you vulnerable?


In case you live under a rock or just haven't followed recent news, if you own a Lenovo you could be subjected to serious security vulnerabilities, including having all your SSL traffic sniffed.
