What a great time to buy - US$1.95 to the UK£.
This is the time to outsource some coding to the far east - the dollar is the gift that just keeps giving.

Does this mean the UK will get less people from the USA visiting and more from the UK will visit the US?

I also guess this is the best time for the UK public to buy things from the US?

House prices in the UK won't drop any time soon and I think they will continue to rise I am guessing this means that this trend will continue...

Now $1.98 ... $2.00 can't be far off, cost of web content keeps falling.

Yeah thanks. We get paid in $US, the poor value of the dollar has almost ruined us. Hopefully we can ride out a few months.

Nothing stays the same, i recall both
£ = $2.40
£ = $1.10

If the UK housing bubble bursts the £ would fall - but with another one million east europeans arriving in the new year it may keep prices stable.

I feel your pain, Matt. I have been shifting over to EU advertisers whenever possible this year because the money from US advertisers ain't worth much.

I thought GBP 1 was supposed to be worth arund USD 1.50 in comparative purchasing power? USD 2 to the pound is horribly low.

I would guess so.

If you are weathy, buying US stocks and bonds would be a good move too.
