Education Resource!

Check this out > a user-friendly web directory, with an education section (and a very cool logo!) ;)

It’s a Fabulous Links Web Directory in my humble opinion. F1L has a Literacy Statistics section.

And of course, at the end of the day (i.e. when you graduate!) you will need a job. Be sure to take a look at their Job and Employment Resources section. F1L is growing, and it looks like it’s going to be a valuable online resource. Educators, and students alike will want to keep an eye on the EDUCATION sections of F1L. Bookmark today.

Have You Gone Wireless Yet?

Cheap wireless broadband internet has made life much easier for computer users. At home or “on the road,” once you are used to wireless, you may not want to use wires – ever again! Are there problems with wireless connections?

The way we use broadband internet is changing. With the popularity of image and file sharing websites, it is hard to live with a dial-up internet connection. Even if you live in a rural area, there are ways of getting cheap broadband internet. Many ISPs companies offer facilities for you to connect via mobile phones and you can even get broadband via satellite.

The prices of wireless broadband modems are coming down and you can pick up a decent router for under $50 from most shops. There are some cheap broadband deals which offer a free modem when you sign a contract.

But is this all good news? Well, maybe. The main problem with wireless connections compared to a wired broadband network is security. If you do not set up the security carefully, then other people can easily use your connection. So you need to make sure that the connection is encrypted. It’s not as hard as it sounds and most routers and ISP modems come with instructions. Your broadband provider will also be able to guide you on this if you require assistance.

One of the common mistakes people make when they go wireless is to buy the cheapest equipment available without doing research. It is always worth reading broadband reviews and guides on wireless equipment before you buy.

How To Find Online Discount Vouchers!

You may have noticed when you make purchases online, there is a box for a promotion or a voucher code. Most shops and services have them as competition is getting stiffer and shoppers are getting smarter in finding the best price. Whenever you want to buy something online, it is probably worth checking if you can get some money off the price by using a discount voucher for that store. So how do you find discount voucher codes?

You can find these codes on freebie sites or other internet shopping forums. There are many of these sites online; you just have to search for them. After checking the expiry dates, try it and apply it! Sometimes some vouchers may not work and you may need to try again.

You need to make sure when you put these discount voucher codes in the check out that there is an “update price” or a similar button so it applies the discount to your purchase.

If you are a regular online shopper, you can join one of the established free stuff sites where you can find the latest coupon codes and other freebies!

Is Online Shopping Getting More Popular?

With the rapid growth of online shopping, it makes you wonder whether there will be a time when you may never have to leave home to do your shopping. But there are still people who want to go out to shop. Let us look at the advantages of online shopping here to see which is best for what type of product.

Shopping online can be cheaper for many products. Online retailers can often offer products at a much lower price due to the fact that they have lower overheads. On the other hand, some brick and mortar shops may have in-store offers and clearance deals which you can avail if you visit the shops. You may even be able to get cashback on your online shopping without paying any extra money using a loyalty shopping website.

With thousands of shops to compare prices, it can be very time consuming if you try and visit each and every shop. On the other hand, if you use an online price comparison website, you can compare prices in an instant and find the best deal!

One benefit of brick and mortar shopping is the face-to-face interaction with a human being. You can always take it back to the shop if something goes wrong. However, most reliable online stores also have a no quibble exchange policy.
