Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

We are, at long last, thinking of setting up a mobile/PDA Reg, but it needs funding. For The Register that means numbers to crunch for advertisers. Rather than make up the figures, we thought we'd ask the people who know best. You.

So we've compiled a reader survey. If you have 10 minutes or so out of to spare, oh, and have an interest in matters mobile - notebooks, PDAs, cellphones, WLANs etc - give it a twirl.

What do you get in return? Our gratitude, and entry into a prize draw to win one of 10 Reg t-shirts. You can see we are pushing the boat out on this. ®
