Not sure what you mean. I am using Firefox 15.0 and it says Firefox is up to date. Did this start happening with 15.0.1?

If I type in, it redirects to

Further, if I do a google search for
Code: Text [Select]
  1. inurl:forum
and open several results in tabs, I see no issue with those pages, I don't get any security warning.

My second kneejerk reaction is this.

Consolidate a library of articles into kind of an article app store on one site (Google Play?), to faciltiate impulse purchases of 35 cent articles, similar to the way mobile app stores facilitate impulse purchases of 99 cent apps.

Maybe the only important thing about the refund policy is that there is one. The sales pitch should use words like a "eight article refund limit per week" instead of "abuse," and requesting a refund of the ninth article will just be blocked, and has zero chance of disabling your Google account (speculating here).

In current form (controlled by the site owner vs app store), I could see the Wall Street Journal or somebody else with articles already behind a paywall doing something like this.

The service gives users the ability to sample the content (e.g. text or image) before they buy, which can be done with a single click. Those who are not satisfied can get their money back within 30 minutes. Of course, Google has safeguards in place to prevent users from abusing the refunds to get free content.

So if you don't like to read kneejerk reactions, stop reading, because here is mine.

I see an article that may or may not be worth a dollar, read it, decide it is crap, and get my money back. The content provider thinks I am abusing the system, they tell Google, and they disable my Google account..

Do you actually use the phone part of your phone? ;D BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA~!

That reminds of the MVNO Ting device page:

I used to use MyMobiler for Windows Mobile to "remote" into my Dell Axim, and it was awesome and I registered it (it was freeware then with a paid version). I see there is an Android version of it now. Does it look like it might meet your needs?
