Newegg pulls Sandy Bridge CPUs and P67 Motherboards
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 3:21P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before the previous generation of Intel processor was released, Lynnfield, remember that NVIDIA initially WANTED to have chipset options on the market as well. Instead, Intel put legal pressure on NVIDIA to the point that the entire division was dropped. The death of the nForce line was with a whimper, not a bang, but the fact that today you can't make a Sandy Bridge processor purchase because of failures with Intel's own chipset, the ONLY chipset that exists for SNB-base CPUs, should help NVIDIA's top brass sleep better at night."

Telus Mobility - Charging you $2 a month, to bill you
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 1:40A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Bare with me for a moment dear PCSTATS readers as your friendly Editor-in-Chief rants about a new and galling FEE being levied by Telus Mobility that you might not be aware of.

Only a cellphone company would have the nerve to charge its customers an extra $2 a month, just to send its customers the phone bill. In November 2010 Telus Mobility began charging Canadian customers a $2/month "Summary Paper Bill Fee". Talk about nickel and dime service fees... on top of this new paper bill fee there's the so called 'CRTC fee' which is now legally called "System Access Fee" at $6.95/month, and then there is the "Enhanced 911 Access Charge" at $0.50/month. These extra fees are in addition to the regular service plan, data and messaging costs.

It's enough to make one seriously consider cancelling phone services with Telus Mobility and switching over to Virgin, Bell, Wind, Rogers or maybe even carrier pigeon.

Have you been fleeced by your cellphone provider? Let PCSTATS know.
