Sometimes I Hate The Internet

Posted by on 21 February 2009

Sometimes I hate the internet. Like when there’s an online sale going on but it’s in the US, hence, the shipping costs the same as the discount and, sometimes, even ending up a lot more expensive than the cost of the item itself.

Case in point: this wireless router, originally priced at $79.99, now on sale at $54.99 (a whopping 31% off!). And the item’s been rated 5 out of 5 stars by 12 people. This would make the perfect replacement for our hiccup-y wireless router at home.

Its features just make my inner tech geek want to drool:-

  •  Internet-sharing Router and 4-port Switch, with a built in speed and range enhanced Wireless Access Point
  •  MIMO smart antenna technology captures faint signals for extended range and reduced dead spots
  •  Much faster than Wireless-G when connected to Wireless-N, but also works great with Wireless-G and -B devices
  •  Wireless signals protected by wireless encryption, and your network protected from Internet attacks by a powerful SPI firewall

If I were living in the US, shipping is free. But since I’m at the other side of the world, freight cost should cost some $35 to $50, based on previous experience with *Sigh* Obviously, one can’t win them all…
