Hi everybody !
So I see that I am not only one who has problems with some British =

retailers. I do research in London and I bought both OmniGo and Clip &Go =

in one shop in Tottenham Court Road (I paid over 280 pounds for both but =
wanted to have all the taxes excluded). When I came to Poznan, Poland whe=
re =

I live I noticed that something is wrong with Clip&Go (the floppy was
refused to be read by my and my friends computers) and that was told the =
shop =

assistants when I returned to London and I asked them if it is possible t=
o =

copy the program at the original floppy and I shown the original bill
which was namely issued (because the tax was returned) and which =

specified what and where I bought. They answered something like =

that "the VAT is excluded so all my consumer rights are also excluded".So=

it seems that I paid 60 pounds for nothing. I think that my version of =

Clip &Go should be called Pay&Go.
These who are interested in the shop address (mainly British I guess) can=

write me at my British email(I am in London now) which is as follows: = =

I give them (without any pleasure) the address of the shop). =

And one more thing:

Stay cool !
