This is a (continuously changing) list of things and services I have here on loan.

So what's the difference between a "On Loan" and "Long Term Loan"? Basically "On Loan" means it will be returned to the manufacturer or PR agency sometime in the very near future. "Long Term Loan" means the manufacturer or PR have either sent the hardware or software without expecting it to be returned and because of use and tear I can decide myself to either return, give it away, or keep it.
If you follow me around on Geekzone and Twitter you know that I pretty much give almost everything away after a while.
I also attend some conferences and other technical events, as a guest - sometimes I pay my travel/accommodation, sometimes this is covered as part of the invite. It doesn't mean I have to write good things about anyone though.
I don't take cash or equivalent for writing. I am not posting links to these products because it's not a URL drop post. It's a disclosure post. Like it or not.
