Has Your Doctor Received Drug Company Money?

Drug companies have long kept secret details of the payments they make to doctors for promoting their drugs. But seven companies have begun posting names and compensation on the Web, some as the result of legal settlements. ProPublica compiled these disclosures, totaling $258 million, into a single database that allows patients to search for their doctor. Receiving payments isn’t necessarily wrong, but it does raise ethical issues. 

Top Earners:
384 doctors and other health providers have received at least $100,000 from drug companies in 2009 and early 2010, according to our research.

The Classiest e-cards on The Web

Back in the year 2000, Jacquie Lawson, an English artist living in the picturesque village of Lurgashall in Southern England, created an animated Christmas card featuring her dog and cats, and her 15th-century cottage, and sent it to a few friends for their amusement.

Click below for a short explanation of how the Resolution Center works.

Five tips for getting rid of crapware

Crapware is software you didn’t ask for and do not want on your computer. Some generic examples are:

  •     Store or brand utilities
  •     Trialware (software free for a period, then pay or lose the program)
  •     Toolbars (menu bars at the top of your screen that take up space)
  •     ISP (Internet Service Provider) - associated utilities
  •     Time-limited antivirus software (again free for a period, then pay or lose the program)

Why is it there, then? PC makers cash in big time, that’s why. Software vendors pay top dollar to get their trialware loaded on OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).

Then their products are right there in front of you on your new computer.
