The Cloud has got you

Do you have Complaints about  Windows 8

Well don't expect Microsoft to worry about it much. The agenda is clear and your going to have to use what they tell you to use. For one thing is for sure and that is the Cloud has you and there is no escape.

Just what is the Cloud and why worry about it?
The Cloud was a plan hatched by Oracle almost 20 years ago where they wanted to eliminate PC's and replace them with work stations. A PC which had no hard drive or drive of any kind. This was their dream to lock users into paying for software. Oracle and many others have been working towards this goal for over a decade.

The downside of this pay for play is you no longer matter. They have you captured into a world they control and you either pay the monthly fee or you are cut off.
This is not my idea of freedom not only to use your PC as you want but also freedom on the internet also.

With the current system we have there is plenty of free software but what if they changed the market to make it so easy for big companies to force you to pay for software?

Ah yes that 20 year old dream just may come true as the majority are sleeping while the Cloud creeps in. Guess  you can say most have their head in a Cloud.

Advertising on Facebook

Is Facebook a Failure when it comes to Advertising

We really never did much with social websites up until now but it seems our first experience with Facebook was an eye opener!

It seems Facebook somehow suspected I was not me and suspended the account.
Now that is an understandable thing as we do have to stand vigilant on Credit Card fraud.
But after seeing how their system works I canceled the Ad account.

As an advertiser I expect to be able to have immediate contact with the company I am spending my money with.
This is not the case with Facebook.

After searching on this issue I see people saying "yes facebook is hard to contact - after all it's free and you get what you pay for"
Well I'm sorry in my case it's not free and this is no way to treat a paying customer.

Due to this I have to say Facebook is not a place to spend money on advertising if they can just shut down your Facebook page anytime they please for what ever reason.
Due to the fact you can't contact them right away I say this is not the place to spend your money. .

Imagine you spent $1,000 on ads and they shut down your page because they think Aliens from Andromeda have invaded your account .  Are they going to refund the $1,000?

What if you think there is click fraud?

Facebook advertising is a bad idea until they wake up and hire people to represent what they are selling. It's called customer support.
