I had to correct myself because I have known them to charge more than the Manufactured Suggested Retail Price, which should be the most that anyone should reasonably pay for any non-difficult-to-find item. They also have another shady practice. A friend of mine was on their mailing list for sales that they had in store when they had a NAS that was highly rated on a tech site. I guess my point is that for number 9, make sure you do your research and try to get as much evidence to support your claim that something costs what the ad said it costs. By the way, yes, I did intentionally not name the company because this is probably a good practice for any stores that you may purchase products from. Happy shopping!

Popular Surveillance Cameras Open to Hackers, Researcher Says | Threat Level In a world where security cameras are nearly as ubiquitous as light fixtures, someone is always watching you. But the watcher might not always be who you think it is. Three of the most popular brands of closed-circuit surveillance cameras are sold with remote internet access enabled by default, and with weak password security — a classic recipe for security failure that could allow hackers to remotely tap into the video feeds, according to new research. The cameras, used by banks, retailers, hotels, hospitals and corporations, are often configured insecurely — thanks to these manufacturer default settings, according to researcher Justin Cacak, senior security engineer at Gotham Digital Science. As a result, he says, attackers can seize control of the systems to view live footage, archived footage or control the direction and zoom of cameras that are adjustable. “All the ones we found have remote access enabled by default,” Cacak says.
