Well tophatter is still letting a con artist sell laptops on their site! After contacting B.B.B. well we cant really do anything? Numerous emails about the VIRUS on laptop I purchased off their site and how much it cost in repairs to desk top, $27.00 reshipping, bubble wrap. They still only have a generic email well we returned ONLY what you paid thru auction. I didn't pay for a VIRUS! I read their rules your not allowed to hack their web site or send them anything with a VIRUS! I really would like a call from them. They Never answer or have a good phone number! Stinks what they can get away with!

I have been a full-time freelance writer for three years now and I have been on Fiverr for about two years now with relative success because Ive been able to maintain a 97% satisfaction rate over the last year. However over the last three months work on this site has been a bit slow and if it wasnt for other permanent clients which I have, things would not have been so good.
However over the last two months I have encountered a new situation regarding Fiverr and that is that clients for whom I have done work three or four months ago is suddenly raising disputes on PayPal and then money which has been paid on orders, which has been delivered a long time ago is then claimed back without anyone asking me for my opinion about these matters.
My problem with this is, that this is orders which has been settled a long time ago and those buyers already had the opportunity to review my work during the three days which is allowed for the review of deliveries and none of them has a voiced any objection on those deliveries which has been made by me. However after the passing of three or more months they are now able to raise disputes on PayPal and the money which was already paid to me is then paid back to the buyer by Fiverr without anyone consulting with me.
The problem that I have with this is that this is leaving the way open for any buyer to raise a dispute at any time in the future on any delivery which has been done in the past and then Fiverr will honor their dispute without consulting with me as the seller. This can potentially lead to a situation where every dollar which I have earned on Fiverr could be claimed back by buyers and there is nothing that I can do about that situation. This hardly seems fair or ethical and it is making it very difficult for freelance writers which is making use of this site.
I believe that the three days which is allowed for revisions of deliveries should be legally binding on both the seller and the buyer and buyers which has not made use of those reviewing times should not be able to raise disputes on PayPal such as has been happening to me frequently over the last two months. In fact it has happened at least 8 to 10 times with me already and even though those claims only represent about $50, with the exchange rate that converts to a lot of South African rands which is why working on this site has been worthwhile to me so far.
This is why Im very concerned about the situation and I believe this is something which will have to be addressed by administrators on Fiverr and some solution will have to be found for this troubling situation.

Clothing items "OK", but sized for a child. Fabric not what I had expected. WORST customer
service ever. Very difficult, if not impossible to return items, they keep asking for my credit
card # over & over! WTF? Likely the items I purchased will go to the thrift store. Lesson
learned! Do yourself a big favor....stay away!

Spent over an hour and created several different accounts and still could not check the mail. I have never had such a problem with an email account. Went to yahoo and took me 5 minutes.

Gmail is an excellent service. It's fast and has a great interface, however everything else is questionable to me.

1. It has a tendency to get spam at certain volumes in only certain amount of times. Often, they are fake Chinese companies trying to sell fake products. I only expected this from Yahoo, not Gmail.

2. The idea of having to have a Google Account just to use Gmail is irritating. It would've been nice if it was an option to merge all Google Services to one account, instead, they force users to create a full Google Account just to use Gmail.

3. Along with the Gmail account, you're also pushed to use Google's failed G+ connected to it. And deleting the G+ account still makes it complicated to change, remove or edit your "Gmail" avatar image. It was buried all the way in Picasa Web Albums (what the heck?)

4. Google Drive is necessary for files over 25MB which is convenient but come on, really? Users are forced a Google Drive account into their Gmail "Google Account" so you have to upload your files there. Plus, 25MB is such a small number when even one PDF can exceed that limit. They're purposely luring users to use the Drive feature.

Overall, if you just want a good email service and don't care about your privacy or the additional Google Account, this is for you. If you value your privacy and only want a good email service, look elsewhere, although there really aren't many options.

Nearly every computer I get on tells me how outdated the browser is, warning me how Gmail won't work properly. I don't have the freedom to do any upgrades.

Assuming the browser does work, then what? I have conversations, not emails. If I'm not careful and I delete something, I will be told the conversation has been deleted. Oh, how considerate of you, telling me I did something I didn't intend to. And it's easy to reverse. But it takes so much effort to figure out how to delete just the email. On the subject of "just the email", good luck finding the exact one. It's not easy. And then replying to the sender always involves sending the received email. Regardless of how long it might be. You just don't see it happening. And I send some long ones.

I send a lot of emails to myself, many of which involve newspaper articles or other content I might want to print out later. Don't do this with Gmail. You'll end up with a lot of blank space on the right of the printout, or waste lots of time eliminate those blank spaces on the right manually.

I keep a lot of what I get or send. Where do I put it? Gmail doesn't tell me. If I'm lucky, I can remember that I have it and do a search. If I'm lucky, I might actually find it. Oh, wait, that's a conversation. So where's the email itself? Other email services have this wonderful feature called "folders". Gmail can't be bothered, unless it's "sent mail". And once that folder has too much in it, I have to search and search and search.

The great thing about Gmail at the beginning was the amount of free storage. Well, now all the free services have lots of storage.

I also don't want to be signed in when using Chrome. I don't want Google knowing all my business.

In comparison to other email services I've used, Gmail is convenient, pretty easy to get the hang of, but customization.

I'm really not sure why anyone would rate this lower than 5 stars... Gmail is the best Web-based email you could ever use. If you require your stuff to be top-secret, don't use it though, because the same thing that makes it so awesome (accessibility) is the same thing that doesn't make it very secure.

Chris O.
Q: Google has just added Google Voice to Gmail, adding Voice over IP to the video/audio chat option and allowing you to call any phone number directly from your Gmail account page. Calls to the USA and Canada are free, and international calls start at 2 cents a minute. If you aren't in America, though, you don't get this new feature, presumably because Google has no agreement to use phone numbers in any other country.

Setup should be relatively easy. I had some hassle with Adobe Air suddenly popping up and crashing all over the place, but that seems to have sorted itself out now. Probably a result of running old software or the wrong software or both, on my old laptop. It all seems OK now and I had no trouble creating a Google phone number for myself (which will ring all your real-world phones, if you want it to).

If anyone's enthusiastic enough to post a comment, what do you think about this new feature? Google can transcribe your messages already, are you at all concerned that Google will now be able to scan your conversations for nefarious purposes in future? It already has the capability to record every interaction you have with any of the Google services, so why not take it a step further?

There is a page on the new launch at Lifehacker:

Note that secretly recording a phone conversation is illegal in most places and can get you into serious trouble, though I doubt very much if this will also apply to Google scanning a call without actually recording it or having a real person listen to it.
