FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Zonbu, A New Computing Approach or Magic

Last October Popular Mechanics had a blurb on the $99.00 computer with a monthly fee of $13.00 per month. I looked up Zonbu today to see how they were faring. They appear to be operating under a bit different scenario now.

Zonbu is both an operating system and a concept. You can get Zonbu (a linux OS) for free along with upto 250mb of online storage. You can download it to your computer and run their online (cloud) applications. Their premier service gives you 50GB of online service for $15.00 per month. They provide the OS, the applications and the storage. They claim you now avoid all the hassles of upgrading (which can be a trial). They claim you can avoid viruses which target Windows OS. You have online data storage which is supposedly impervious to data loss. You can access your data from any online source. It is an interesting concept. You can buy computers from them with the OS preinstalled. I have reservations but you may want to check out their site, it makes for interesting reading. Zonbu This was not a paid blog.
