E-mail 'guest list' service adds Yahoo, Outlook integration

Because 'one person's spam is another person's sausage'

Loder admitted that "not very much" money had changed hands between Boxbe users and marketers so far. He said the company was focusing on adding features -- and, it hopes, users -- before knocking on Madison Avenue's doors again.

"We have to attract a large number of members in order to get the scale for advertisers to give us greater consideration," he said.

In the future, users could register their personal demographic data with Boxbe to make them better leads for marketers, thus also raising the rate they could charge certain advertisers.

That could help users someday to charge even marketers hawking porn Web sites or Viagra and get paid, Loder said.

"Almost any kind of message could be paid by a marketer for delivery, as long as they get the assurance that it's to an audience that cares," he said.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
