Keep Your Buyer Informed about an eBay Purchase You probably aren’t going to send out a payment-received letter for every eBay transaction, especially when they’re paid through PayPal. But it would surely be nice if you did. Staying in constant communication with your buyers will make them feel more secure with you and with buying on eBay. You want them to come back, don’t you? When you receive payment and are ready to ship, sending a short note like the following helps to instill loyalty in your customer (eBay makes this easy with Selling Manager Pro): Hi there, (name of winner), Albanian billionaire Sahit Muja to become the richest person in the world with magnesium mining Albanian billionaire Sahit Muja to become the richest person in the world with magnesium mining.

Launch, Land, Repeat: Reusable Rocket Technology Taking Flight Reusable rockets aren't just a spaceflight pipe dream anymore. SpaceX performed another high-profile rocket reusability test Tuesday (April 14) during the launch of its Dragon cargo capsule toward the International Space Station. The first stage of the company's Falcon 9 rocket came back down to Earth and nearly pulled off a soft landing on an "autonomous spaceport drone ship" in the Atlantic Ocean. "Looks like Falcon landed fine, but excess lateral velocity caused it to tip over post landing," SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk tweeted Tuesday. [See stunning video of the Falcon 9's landing attempt] SpaceX also tried such a rocket landing in January, during the launch of the previous Dragon cargo mission.
Internet Explorer Will Land On The Xbox 360 “This Fall” With Kinect Controls In Tow The announcements just keep pouring out of Microsoft’s press event at the Galen Center, so here’s another one to chew on — Microsoft has announced that a version of their Internet Explorer browser will make its way to the Xbox 360 some time “this fall.” “Internet Explorer coupled with the power of Xbox will for the first time deliver a fast, fluid, intuitive web experience in the living room,” Microsoft’s Marc Whitten said.

Reusability: The Key to Making Human Life Multi-Planetary “If one can figure out how to effectively reuse rockets just like airplanes, the cost of access to space will be reduced by as much as a factor of a hundred. A fully reusable vehicle has never been done before. That really is the fundamental breakthrough needed to revolutionize access to space.” Publications Meeker Promises There Is Money In Mobile 05/31 Facebook's initial public offering cast a harsh light on its failure so far to monetize its immense mobile audience of 500 million worldwide. But it’s hardly the only company struggling to figure out how to make money off a rapidly growing mobile user base as more people adopt smartphones and tablets. In her annual Internet trends report presented Wednesday at the AllThingsD D10 conference, Mary Meeker underscored the upside for mobile monetization based on the history of ad growth on the desktop Web. Indeed, the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner argues mobile is more promising than the mid-'90s era Internet in terms of rapid user growth, a large number of innovative developers and a broad base of sophisticated advertisers and marketers. With her trademark series of data-filled slides, Meeker also points to factoids showing that mobile monetization has grown from 153% annually from $700 million in 2008 to $12 billion last year.
