Living Room / A USA company doing it right ...
« on: June 07, 2006, 05:52 PM »
A few times I've seen posts bemoaning the fact that offers were valid for USA residents only.
Here's a company that knows how to do it right. An excerpt from their last newsletter:

Yes, you heard it right. Despair, Inc. is extending to our domestic
customers a special father's day coupon code, granting the American
user TOTALLY FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $15*. All you
have to do to get it is to be willing to type in the following
coupon code: "yesasamatteroffactireallyamthischeap" (NO QUOTES).

(OR, if you're just as lazy as you are stingy, "imcheap" works, too, but
man, I just have to let you know that if you type this in, you are so not
the kind of customer that marketing people want to target. Just so we
understand each other.)

Yes, those of you outside the United States are excluded from this
promotion. But because we feel sorry for you, we are offering an
alternate coupon code, which will grant the user 15% off their order.
All you have to do is type, "iwishilivedinamerica"(NO QUOTES).

The company is despair.com, and they're right into the art of DEmotivation. Worth a look.

We (my girlfriend and I) just bought 2 Palm Zire 31 I am searching for freeware for it now.
Why not post what sort of software you're looking for? (eg, doc reader, screenshot capture, shopping list, etc etc)

Were you looking for a "widgets" dBase-type database, or something like Bonsai or ListPro?

I bought handbase from http://www.ddhsoftware.com/palm_software.html?UID=
I used to monitor several sites for palm news and software ..eg -

http://palmaddict.typepad.com/palmaddicts/
http://www.clieuk.co.uk/index.shtml
http://www.1src.com/
http://www.spug.net/

For specific shareware/freeware repositories, you could look at:

http://freewarepalm.com/
http://zdnet.com.com/2001-2008-0.html
http://dmoz.org/Computers/Systems/Handhelds/Palm_OS/Software/
http://www.eurocool.com/type/?type=Freeware

Of course you have to wade through a lot of junk to find stuff that suits

I went to Last.fm  and searched for a few jazz pianists (eg bobby timmons) Got really excited because of the number of people who had reportedly listened to him recently (from Last.fm one would assume) and thought "wow, this is a great site to have him being streamed"

I downloaded and installed their listening software on that basis, then was stumped for awhile when it reported "not enough content" and nothing was streamed. "Not enough content is to be read as NO bobby timmons.  On investigation, the numbers who listened to him did so on their own computer, independent of Last.fm and it was this statistic that was being reported (ie last.fm tracks winamp usage)
Pandora is still #1 for me
