Your next PC perhaps...

"P-ISM is a gadget package including five functions: a pen-style cellular phone with a handwriting data input function, virtual keyboard, a very small projector, camera scanner, and personal ID key with cashless pass function. P-ISMs are connected with one another through short-range wireless technology. The whole set is also connected to the Internet through the cellular phone function. This personal gadget in a minimalistic pen style enables the ultimate ubiquitous computing."

Don't get spoofed!

Here is a recent email I received, but it wasn't from eBay...

The trick this spoofer used was showing the proper "secure" URL in the text of the message, but it linked instead to multipledad.net.

Anytime you want to see where a button or link might take you, put you mouse cursor overtop and when you see the arrow change into a little finger-pointing hand, look down to the bottom left of the browser screen to see the destination URL. (See the example below...)
