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.

Or what a great time for we Brits to cross the pond. I think I'll look for an excuse ;)

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.
