USTVNow Update - Last Friday afternoon, I received the following Email from USTVNow:
Welcome to USTVNow! To remind you, earlier this year you requested an account with us to watch US TV for free while traveling overseas. It took a while, but it is finally ready! Your user name is below. Note that it is in the form of an email address: To log in now, click www.ustvnow.com/login.php.

If you log in the first time while in the USA, you will only be able record shows which you will be able to playback once overseas for free. When you are overseas you will also be able to watch live TV for free. Don't forget to bookmark USTVNow's web site where you can post questions; find answers, FAQ, and refer friends and family for bonus recording points. Once again, welcome to ustvnow and we hope you enjoy the service during the holidays !
Although I'm currently up in the US, I was able to log in and stream some network programming. It looks like the free access is a teaser to get you to sign up for the paid version, which runs anywhere from $2.99 for a one-day pass all the way up to $169 per month for an HD plan. I'd be interested to hear from users outside the US what their experience is with using this service, either free or paid. - Alan, alan [ -at- ] bajawesternonion.com

Beware of Caller ID Spoofing - Courtesy of The Baja Pony Express - Criminals have a method of changing the Caller ID on your phone to reflect the names of Financial Institutions. The bad guys will call, you will look at the Caller ID and think your bank is calling. The caller will pretend that your account may be a victim of fraud. They will ask you to verify/give them account information. Shortly thereafter you account will be emptied. If someone calls you concerning any financial information, call them with a number that you have used and trust!!! I received a computer generated call from my bank concerning a change in a normal monthly charge. Instead of verifying with that call, I called the bank. That one was a legitimate call. Be careful. the computer guy (thecomputerguy [ -at- ] usa.com). Editor's Note: Please see Wikipedia's article on this, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caller_ID_spoofing
