More and more companies want to charge people for software continuously. I just want to buy once and then own it. So that Adobe is making everyone subscribe (according to DN.se) is just bad. A poor man cannot pay 228 SEK per month on an already low-income, or even worse no income. We already have to pay continuously for anti-virus-programs, TV-licenses, TV-subscribitions, newspapers, insurances, rent and such. Adding even more payment on that is a strain. I think Adobe is doing it bad. If you cannot continue paying you won’t be able to use what you paid for. Sayonara.
I am saying that people should be able to buy a license and own it. Then let it be optional to pay for upgrades, like it was before. The poor man stays behind, but can at least use the software. The rich man can upgrade. I think that Adobe just contributes to unequal by making it as a subscription.
Kolja and Torsk is the label for imported fish in Sweden, however results in UK have shown that their imported fish isn’t really the labled one. So the fish sales companies are lying. The Asian companies are lying about the content, according to Aktuellt, SVT2, tonight on TV. The labled fish isn’t the labled fish, it is another fish type.
I am disappointed at the bad companies in ASIA. They just continue lying, trying to earn money on Europeans “trust” for companies. Bad companies.
Stop importing food. Start DNA testing.

Imagine how much we trust the food industry in giving us the stuff we bought. However in the newspapers the past weeks it has been scandal after scandal with meat fraud. I could have understood if it wasn’t meat that had replaced the meat, but now it was meat being replaced with meat. Is it so much cheaper with horse meat than with cow? Then I am wondering how come horse meat isn’t advertised as “cheap” meat. Of course it cannot be so much cheaper? Well. I think there is nothing wrong with horse meat. I think it is a wonder they haven’t fooled the customer on meat, just the sort of meat we eat. Some have tried to fool us by placing water in the meat so the weight is more. But replacing meat with meat…. that is somehow more difficult to know. The modern person has forgotten how meat is identified. I am guessing this wouldn’t have been a possible fraud in those days when we knew what meat looked like.
Well, many food manufacturers have been involved in the horse meat scandal. Nestlé, a big manufacturer was targeted, now today IKEA meatballs have been subject for the fraud, according to DN.se. And in Aftonbladet.se Dafgård says they have been fooled. (Producer of IKEA meatballs). Dafgård thinks the meat might have been contaminated since the slaughter of cow and horse is in the same facility. The article also says they might have done it as fraud, since horse meat is cheaper. This clearly shows there is no consideration for health, nor customers morals on the manufacturer part, the meat part of it anyway.
It seems like all the big producers have been fooled. So what drives the meat scandal? Money. Money. Money. The root of the problem is money. People are trying to get as much of your money as possible. They want as much profit as possible. Greed. That is the proper name for the meat scandal.
It is a waste of all horses if the meat is just thrown away. However it seems like some meat contains dangerous medicines for horses. Humans shouldn’t get horse meat with horse medicine inside. That is dangerous. All this scandal is just a waste of food. Of money. Waste of the environment. Everything is just a scandal so to speak.
Who is responsible? Who are they? Who thought greed was the right way to act? I do not think only one person is behind this. It must be MANY people. Who will pay? Who?
In the end it is you, the customer, that pays. I hope that in this case they will lose their licenses to practise within the meat industry.
Telemarketing is by law forbidden from the beginning. Wonderful. You must in advance have approved that they call you. In example if you have allowed someone to call you then they can, otherwise not. I want this law in Sweden too. 50 000 Euro is the fine! I like German legislation. This should all of us have the possibility too.

Bank customers are scammed on their money. In todays Aftonbladet.se we can read about a man who was scammed on all his money n the bank account – 15 000 SEK. He was in the store buying food and the transaction did not go through. Then he checked his bank account and realized all the money was gone, according to the article. He made a complaint at the Police and reported it all to the bank. But he didn´t get his money back. The bank said the transaction was valid, even though it was from a different IP number and went to a known criminals account. The bank refused to pay him back.
I am wondering how the criminal could use his account? Did he access his house? Have a copy of his mobile phone? Or what? The IP number was different, that´s in the article. But still, how did he even get the correct codes? Strange.
The Swedish authoroty ARN can´t help the customers. If they are scammed with bank codes… they are lost and the money is gone!
Well, this shows the banks are not good enough. Need other systems. Or maybe should I say, the computers are not safe… and Internet is not safe. The problem is “tell all” functions built in the systems. Wireless is also shit. Don´t use it.
In todays DN.se I can read an article that says that American Express was convicted for having made freud on 250.000 customers. The discovery was made by three authoroties in the US. This clearly shows that we need authoroties that we need to keep an eye on companies as well as institutions of all sorts. People with money can obviously not be trusted.
Money is so often behind problems that ordinary and non ordinary people and companies have. What if money wasn´t the currency that we had anymore? Imagine what a relief to trade things, food and tasks instead. In some places people have started to do that, since they have had a shortage of money. Having “tjänster och gentjänster” is actually a good way of swapping tasks and things. The problem today is that everything costs a lot. But if we didn´t use money then maybe some problems would go away? Who knows? What do you think?
Should we go back to trading services and stuff instead?
In todays Dn.se we can read about a customer that did not get the deal it thought it had bougt. In this case a hair cut with high lights /colouring. The girl payed 398SEK, according to Dn.se. When she they tried to use the coupon the hairdresser said it was not valid. Then the customer contacted Groupon and said so, Groupon said it was valid. The customer called back to the hairdresser. This time the hairdresser told the customer that Groupon didn´t pay them any money and that they couldn´t accept the coupon therfor. Now the customer is in the middle of the Groupon company and the hairdresser. They say different things. Reality is a fact. The customer has not yet got an haircut with highlights / colouring even though she has payed for one.
The article also says that the company has also given gift certificates on lamps on 599SEK and when the customers have gone to the store, the original price was 399SEK. They had payed MORE for the deal.
Doesn´t Groupon pay their companies with deals? Is Groupon fooling companies from money? And in the end the customers? What is going on? Is Groupon just a scam and the jokes on us?
