Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

UK PC builder Time Computers has agreed to hand out more than £40 million of software from its Free Software for Schools promotion. The IT giveaway, run with Time subsidiary supanet, generated over 35,000 orders for free software from more than 23,000 schools between September and March. So far the company has given away more than 2,000 PCs. Thirty-eight million tokens were collected – from a combination of retail outlets such as WH Smith and John Menzies, as well as from The Times newspaper. The computer kit was sent to a variety of educational establishments, including special schools for children with learning difficulties, schools within prisons, and hospitals.® Related stories Supanet pays you to surf Half of UK schools are software pirates It's Time to give away software
