If you are buying or renting a postage meter in Canada you essentially have three choices of manufacturer. Many people think that there is only one meter rental company authorized to sell postage equipment in Canada.

Less paper office
Wouldn't it be nice to have the ability to create money? Well in essence that is what happened back in 2008 when Bitcoins were invented.
Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the inventor (or inventors perhaps) who created this online virtual currency. For more of the story behind this event follow the link to the Wikipedia reference which outlines it in some detail.
