    It would be great if you could actually turn off a Windows computer. Every-time I switch one off I get the message "Installing Windows updates - Do not turn off your computer" It seems as if the computer is continually installing updates!! Does Windows phone do the same? Sorry you can not call John Doe, windows is updating, please wait forever!!

    even Microsoft I believe is an infringement itself... isn't "microsoft" a native American word meaning "to stop, click start"?

    A phonec trademark infringement huh? I cant see it in a domain like that.... no accidental misspelling is gonna bring that domain traffic.... I'd had to have fought that one.. The persons real given name in the domain, no content on the website referring to MS or its content. The person might as well have filed a counter infringement suit on Microsoft for using the phonecs of his given name in a trademarked corporate business name, same difference. Thats not the same situation as iads was describing.

    that wouldn't matter, they cannot have any sort of brand dilution or people thinking their working directly with RSP when its really you. Try that with any company, web services or not and you'll pretty much get the same result. (love the emoticon!)

    Ya, that's not a problem. The crazy thing is we are not really supposed to publicly promote ourselves as "Other Guy Resellers"... yet they leak their $%^#@* links and brand all over our stuff. That's one of the reasons we felt the need to develop an alternate brand over here t begin with.

I liked the idea that when someone followed a link or print ad they might not notice the s, and perceive me as more legitimate and not just another affiliate.

    Thanks iads, Yes "the other guys" offer "mostly" white label, though they are sloppy and have brand leaks. we heavily market this reseller brand and will continue to do so. We're not moving or switching. Our brand there is tied to them. Just as our main brand here is tied to here.
