  • Hello Varun,
    Thanks for sharing these awesome gadgets. I’ll surely buy the Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 Professional Mouse because I love to play games on my PC.
    Anyway, I saw you use some referral link here from Amazon. So why not you use these referral link as affiliate link to earn some extra cash?

    • Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views Fakharuddin.
      We are not targeting affiliate earning (at least for now). As you can see the site doesn’t have much affiliate related content. Also, that earning would not make much difference for us.
      Well, thanks for your kind suggestion.
