Bloody Google is getting worse!

What used to work suddenly starts to keep crashing my Safari, as well as my iOS on my iPad! Web front-ends are trying to do more and more nowadays. What used to be simple static HTML web pages get so sophisticated that they can run various stuff on your web browser. I must say that I’m not a big fan of heavy front-ends. And yet Google seems very keen to lead us to run everything on web browsers. Things get so clunky that it is little wonder GMail starts crashing my iPad. God knows what they have done lately. And Eric Schmidt even foresees that Google will not only “answer” your queries, but also tell you what to do next! Good…

Quidco does work for iPad ordered for collection in-store!

It’s been a while since I last checked on my Quidco account. Guess I wasn’t optimistic about getting any cashback from the iPad we bought from PC World two months ago, although this offer was advertised on the Quidco website. Because we ordered the iPad online, but chose to collect in-store, which means paying for the iPad in-store as well. So we weren’t sure if Quidco will be able to track the completed transaction. I mean I haven’t yet received the 3% cashback too, but at least the transaction is validated on my Quidco account. The validation process required that I provide some sort of transaction number printed on the receipt I received after making the payment at the store. So there you go, you can get some savings even on Apple’s products!
