I'm moving house next weekend and new place does not have WiFi. It's a six month lease and I'll probably be moving out of the country after that. I use a lot of internet (streaming music, downloading podcasts, films, sending large files, using cloud services, etc.) and so I need something unlimited or pretty near it. Everything I'm seeing online so far is either too much £ for too little internet (£20 for 2GB per month, seriously??) or too much commitment (12-18 month contracts for phone, broadband and TV). I only need internet. What are my options, if any? Thanks!

Should I return these items from Urban Outfitters like the store has requested and pay $60 for postage or keep the items?
As I see it they've helped me out by sending another lot of the same items since the parcel appeared to be lost in the post, but what it boils down to is that I - the customer - will have to pay extra because my parcel took longer to arrive to expected. [more inside]

Overstock.com has just started something called the "Main Street Initiative" where they create and promote small business microsites. I have a few questions about this. [more inside]

Is there a comprehensive shopping search engine? Ideally, it would search all shopping sites (including small vendors), ebay and craigslist. The prices would be regularly updated and sortable. I'd love an estimate of shipping costs, but that's optional.

Give me some more internet fads to check out! I've got my hipster pda tucked into the pocket of my moleskine, I'm using brasso to clean my ipod, but I haven't yet bought a pair of Vibram fivefingers. What other stuff is there to make/buy that you wouldn't know about without the internet?

Hi - I want to open an online store on my my site (wordpress blog in Spanish) that would sell a select range of other people’s products as well as products I make myself and I am looking for some advice on this matter.

I'd like to setup a webstore/portal script for local bands to sell their merchandise on. Can anyone recommend a solution? I'd prefer it to be LAMP based if possible.

I ordered something from an online merchant and when I received the package I found an empty box inside. An empty watch box, that is, as the item in question was a watch. When I called the company to complain, I could tell that the CSR was convinced I was a crook... (They promised a replacement, btw.)
Has something like this happened to anyone ? I was wondering how common this experience is.

Catalog spam. I ordered a bed frame online, and was pleased with the result. Since then, however, I've been getting a catalog of some sort or another (Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Linens & Things, etc) almost every day - sometimes more than one. It's driving me crazy. Is there anything I can do short of changing address?

This has been asked before but the answers I need are a bit more specific. I bought my home (1920s bungalow) here in Sacramento 3 years ago, and the previous owners had DSL - in fact the DSL port in the house is exactly where I need/want my broadband connection to be. So - I just got an Airport Express card for my powerbook and a Airport Extreme basestation: do I want DSL or cablemodem? I use satellite for TV, not cable, and am not going to switch any time soon, so bundles are out. I am not going to run a website and need no static IP. Insanely high speed is not necessary, just something a hell of a lot faster than my current 56k. Prices? Service? Will SBC give me a deal on DSL since the install is already in place?

I want to get a new domain name that is cool but also sensible enough to go on CV's. However my imaginative skills aren't too great so I thought about using an expired domains list. However I am having difficulty finding a useful one [more inside...] [more inside]
