Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

Plagiarism and you.

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's words without their consent or permission. In the world of writing this is stealing an authors work and is a crime. This was made known to me by a press release from a site called TechWareLabs who is a great hardware and software review site for computers and related products.

There is one main article that was allegedly stolen word for word by Grand Island Computer's, even the picture was copied from TechWareLabs directly. They cannot do this kind of stealing blatently as it will affect so many things if people get away with this kind of crime.

You may wonder why would we worry about the stealing of an article from one site by another, this would not affect me in any way.

Think about it though, how will it end if sites just copy stuff from others without permission and without paying for the hard work of others.

I think something needs to be done and quickly, send your thoughts to TechWareLabs and give them your support, send your complanits to Grand Island Computers.
