different routes in obtaining help for any consumer who needs it. Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQ) should be researched and made available to the viewer. The
downloadable accessories must be engineered without taking much space on the

PDAs will cost the consumer a reasonable base price, and their means of retrieving them
should be organized in a convenient manner. The company information page should
