eBay password needs to be changed after unauthorised access.

I received a tip that eBay's service had been compromised and users of eBay should change their passwords.

You can find more information here on the eBay site.

It is a good idea not to click on links in emails that you think are from eBay. Smart hackers will be sending out emails to eBay users so best to go to the site and perform the change.

How does an IT consultant end up also running an advertising service?

As an IT consultant I enjoy helping others with their technology. The problem however is I'm limited by time as to the number of people I can assist. By creating an advertising service I use the technology I know to help others and I can share my knowledge to a much greater number of people at a much lower cost.

The best part is I get to meet some excellent businesses. Businesses like 10th Entrepreneur and Quinta Real Estate and I can see the difference I make to their business with just minor suggestions. The cost of time is one of the biggest killers for business so if I can make my time available more cost effectively then that helps clients and for me that's a great outcome.

So if you have a business on the internet and want to promote your business locally then check out JustLocal.

It should be noted that I have a policy of full disclosure. As an IT consultant I feel I have a moral obligation to make sure clients have the best information on which to make a decisions. JustLocal is my service I've developed. It is not a consulting service but an advertising service. As an advertising service a set fee is charged for advertising. It is always tricky to be a consultant providing independent advice, but it is possible is full disclosure is a core principle.
