The amount of IT that is at your finger tips in the year 2022 (or really since 2015) is amazing. It is possible to research how to make vegetarian chili or get help in selling your old computer monitor.
From the comfort of your own home you can sell new or old items on ebay, ebay kleinanzeigen (Germany), Amazon, ETSY, Facebook marketplace just to name a few. This makes it easy to sell your old playstation or perhaps an old laptop.
You would think selling that item should be easy, just take a few pictures, and create an auction or a sale. Bingo you are rich.
Well, it turns out that the world is a large place and a lot of people have old or broken laptops in their basement. Just try and sell one to discover how many items are for offer. I thought I could sell an old slimline dvd drive only to discover what appears to be dozens of similar items that can be had for not much more then the cost of shipping.
This is great if you are looking to build some Frankenstein computer with 10 slimdrive dvd’s but less interesting if you are trying to sell your old 512 mb laptop ram module or old laptop keyboard.
As always, your mileage may vary.
