Surprisingly, in this always-connected day and age, people surveyed by Norton in Australia and New Zealand said they plan to do less than 40% of their Christmas shopping online.
Norton released results of their Online Shopping Survey just in time for the holidays, when online retailers offer sales to lure shoppers into buying presents for themselves and others.
Security blogger Brian Krebs recently reported that cybercriminals are sending out phony “order confirmation” emails to gain access to people’s identities and computers. Fraudsters send out these emails hoping to exploit the fact that consumers are being inundated with messages from retailers about orders or promotions and may let their guards down.
Consumers receive an email from a recognized brand like Target, Costco, Home Depot, or Walmart about a recent in-store or online order.
Scroll to the bottom for additional suggestions, credited to those that suggested them :) Just a list, as the items have come to me.
No doubt the number of items will increase (got something you think should be on the list? ) Hop behind the cut, for 30 things every newbie should know before starting Second Life.

Here are a few of the latest headlines: Think twice before you click this holiday season.
4 – The first place you teleport to after leaving Help Island when you first arrive will be the place that is set as your Home location, until you change it.
You can only set your Home location at a Linden Lab infohub, or to certain areas in certain groups that allow it when you are a member of that group.
Impersonating a Linden is an Abuse-Reportable offence, so if someone makes this claim (especially if they are threatening you with it) and they are lying, right-click their avatar and select ‘Report Abuse’ from the pie menu (you may have to dig down a bit for it), or you can choose Report Abuse from the Help menu of your viewer.
3 – If you feel at all uncomfortable, then simply teleport away.
