PZIZZ power napping software
« on: June 09, 2006, 05:35:52 AM »
"Featured software" on http://bitsdujour.com/ today is Pzizz, sleeping, relaxation and concentration software.
a. Has anyone any knowledge of this or similar?
b. Does the discount only work for USA or is the discount code wrong for everyone?

No idea, but the email they sent to Download the demo came with no links whatsoever...

Pretty suspicious...

So if I cannot try it, and they cannot send a simple email with a link, I will not buy.

You got further than me .... I could only get to a purchase link (at $50US, which was a bit surreal since I was clicking on a discount offer for a product with an ORIGINAL price of $40US). Think I'll give up too.

Sounds kinda scary. What if they include brainwashing messages in there? :D

no worries. I had to go out this morning and by the time I got home and checked here, then at BDJ, it was gone. Oh well.

I emailed pzizz about:
a. Not being able to get a discount
b. The australian affiliate selling pzizz at a higher than USA price.

Here's the reply I received:

Hi Tony

Thanks for your message to Matthew...  I'm sorry for any confusion 
but pzizz Australia is a separate entity...

Anyway, I apologise for the frustration this must have caused you - 
we're here to make people's lives easier - not more complicated!

Please accept this license key by way of an apology:
**********

Any problems, please let me know...

Otherwise, best wishes and happy pzizzing!

If that isn't a nice gesture, I don't know what is!!! I think the "niceness quotient" is terrific and far outweighs the monetry aspect.
Good one Pzizz (http://www.pzizz.com)

When I see other people mention things like this, I feel the same way .... it makes me want to support them with a purchase.
It would be good if there was a repository for stories of companies making gestures like this, so if you wanted to purchase some software, you could check out that list - sort of like "preferred suppliers". (Similar to trying to purchase from companies who donate software to dc)

$39.95 for powernap software seems a little steep.  I could create soothing Haiku's for DC credits if anyone's inerested......Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Today I stumbled over http://www.pzizz.com/ and then saw there's this discussion on DC. So, what are you own experiences with it?
