Man Quits Job; Now Makes Millions Fighting Spam

"We all hate spam. At one time or another, it feels like the bane of our existence. Most of us just hit the delete button (or first tag it as junk) and the move on with our lives. Not Daniel Balsam, though, who quit his day job to take on spammers full time. Balsam was working as a marketer eight years ago. After one too many pitches to enlarge one part of his body or another, he had enough. He quit his job and went to law school. Now he makes a living by suing companies that send him spam mail. Now he takes spammers to court in California.

Sprint employees fired for helping Apple

Don't be a hero Mike McGee

Two “have-a-go heroes” have been fired by the telco Sprint for helping an Apple security guard capture a thief.

Paul Shoemaker and Mike McGee (no relation), were working at a Sprint outlet at the Cherry Creek Shopping centre. They heard a cry for help from an aging security guard as a shoplifting suspect blazed past them. They chased the guy down, caught him, and held him until mall security and police arrived.
