On short term loan:


"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. "Short term loan" means I have the device here for a while but it's going to be returned soon.

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 for 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.
