  1. Too bad that they don’t accept PayPal. It would be a lot easier for me to pay that way. I will give Google Checkout a try though.

  2. really nice and helpful tips, unless you live in Brazil, or any other ‘underdeveloped’ country: you can buy extra space with an old Google Account but forget buying anything at google for a google apps account or Chrome when you happen to live in an unsupported country… google checkout doesn’t allow you
    it’s a shame really
