Software affiliates come in two main varieties: a link to a software store or a link to the author's site. The key issue in the software category is the way referral fees are tracked. It is not a problem buying a full product from a retailer such as Amazon, but difficulties arise when someone downloads a shareware version and buys it at some time in the future. For example, Xara Software tracks its referrals through a cookie. A visitor downloads the shareware and if they ultimately buy the product, that cookie must be on the PC they are using when making the purchase, otherwise you don't get the referral fee. Carefully planned shareware programs can work, but require close monitoring. The most reliable option is to find an online store and link directly to products. Some to try are MicroWarehouse (up to a 7 per cent referral, www.warehouse.com), Amazon (www.amazon.com), or for games try Dragons Den (up to 15 per cent, www.dragon.ca).

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
