Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Special offer for fast moving Register readers: buy a new Nissan car worth £14,000 for just £180. Well, almost. The problem is that you can't actually buy the £180 car from the catalogue site, new-car-net, displaying the comfortable Nissan Primera 1.6 available in 'five door-hatchback, estate and four-door saloon versions'. A pity because we were rather keen and kindly asked Nissan if they would sell it to us. They said they couldn't: "This site is not known to us," a spokeswoman said and promptly emailed new-car-net to warn them. Prices are somewhat more accurate on Nissan's own site, it seems. New-car-net's site editor Massimo Pini admitted there had been a mistake and that the price "would be corrected by the end of the day" but sadly told us that the site did not take orders for cars on-line. It is simply a manufacturer independent catalogue that flogs a few motor services such as insurance. Last month, retailer Argos mispriced a Sony television for £2.99 instead of £299.99 and attracted a large number of orders. It promptly attempted to refuse all the £3 orders until enterprising law firm Taylor Johnson Garrett said it would take Argos to court. Unfortunately for Argos, one of its employees reckons to have received an email confirmation of their order for a TV priced at £2.99. The publicity shy Register had much the same idea in mind, plus setting up a car lot over here in Mayfair. Email us with any more bargains; we always thought, recalling our days as shop assistants, that goods had to be sold at the price offered. Surely consumers deserve equal treatment on-line. ®
