    Anyone who is saved only by the logo change should stop using a computer right now! ;-)

    But your checklist is excellent. Would that everyone caught those signs, at least a couple of which are always there.

    What are the shady links at the end of the PDF file you linked to (the Gizmo/Wendy Grossman one)? They either don't work or look like phishing links. I clicked one, and it went to the main page of Gizmo, but I did a Google search preview of the others and they don't make sense. One goes to a page with only text that says Welcome to nginx!" Why would these be in a legitimate article?

      The link works for me.

      It goes to http://www.techsupportalert.com/pdf/t1304.pdf

      It's an article by Wendy Grossman, a respected technology journalist.

        Hi Graham,

        The link works fine and her article is great. I am aware she is well respected - I mean the links that are included on page three within that PDF file, that are supposed to go to Gizmo's additional articles/recommendations. I know you guys didn't make them, obviously.

    Mike:

    Have you noted the date of Wendy Grossman's article? It's 1998. That does not invalidate any of the advice contained in it. However, it might well explain why links on page 3 do not work!

    I thought the new eBay logo WAS the sign of a dodgy site at first... oh wait, IT IS!!!

    Not sure it should even be called a logo. It is terrible, which reflects the new eBay (or is it simply 'ebay' now?). Prepare for ebay branded boxes and bags full of tacky plastic disposable merchandise...
