A new definition of "Buyer Beware"Written by Jesse S. Somer
Continued from page 1
Her look of disbelief was starting to rattle me. It is a really horrible feeling when somebody you love so much doesn't have trust in you. I then searched and found receipt from eBay for when I bought phone. After showing date on form to her I could tell she was starting to see that I was telling truth, but wall of disbelief still hung over, clouds covering her bright face. Finally I decided to search for guy who sold me phone. If this didn't prove my case nothing would save me from eternally sleeping in doghouse. Using email address he had used in sale proved fruitless as my message kept coming back 'Return to sender.' Let me tell you I was really beginning to panic! Then, bang! The sound of gun rang in my ears...just joking. It didn't get that serious! No, bang was sound of flash of inspiration that suddenly entered my mind. I went back on Internet and eBay and searched for guy's name. I found it with a different email address, as he must have changed his Internet Service provider. A huge feeling of calmness rushed over me like first wave at beach when you have been in heat all day. Next I sent him a message asking him about archived messages to 'Suzie' and asked him to 'Carbon Copy' (Cc) his response to my wife's email address so she would see that it was authentic. The man then replied with a message that said he was very embarrassed about not deleting messages on cell phone. All right, pay dirt! He also went on to say that his wife was named Suzie and gave her address so Kat could then contact her if necessary. He seemed especially nervous about content of messages and said that he hoped nothing too x-rated was there as he and his wife often used risqué language to keep their relationship's fire 'stoked up! O.K. So there's my story. My main message to you from whole experience is that if you are buying or selling a product on eBay, make sure you clean up any unwanted information. It can really cause problems! Let me also tell you that now I am back searching on eBay as my new phone has also been sent on a mission back to creator as it too has been on 'Quest for spin cycle'!

Effective Web Search with Google's "My Search History" ToolWritten by shuth
Continued from page 1
The service, which is still at beta stage and released just recently, provides complete search history of all past searches made through Google once you install it. The search histories are stored on Google's servers, this enables you to access search histories from any computer. From your search history page you are able to make a query on search history itself. On history page at right side you can see search words or phrases used for making a query, time of query made, pages visited related to query and page link. At left side, there is a calendar to check out search made by you on an earlier date. It also shows how many searches you have done on a certain day and how intense your search activity was on each day. A neat feature, which will help you get rid of problem mentioned in beginning of article, will show you relevant search results from your "My History Pages" along with new search results while you make a query. "This feature of Google Web search enables you to find information you thought you lost", Google claims on its site.
