iBetter? Haha


Would you exchange this ipod.jpg with thiscreative_zen_micro.jpg?

Apparently, Creative think so! Called iBetter, they offering first 5 to give up their iPod with a free Zen Micro and wait, it gets better: subsequent exchanger get Zen Micro at reduced prices.

Someone in their marketing division must be smoking something really strong. I mean, gosh, they going to spend 100M USD marketing campaign on this.

Have they done any market survey with iPod owners? I might consider exchanging if my iPod breaks down…wait, hold on. No, I wont even exchange if my iPod break down. At least, my iPod looks way cooler as a decoration on my desk. If I own a Zen Micro, I would spending my time hiding it from being seen.

I have nothing against Creative. I am just amazed at their strategy lately, like the one that gives out *10* Zen Micro to the top winner of a lucky draw.

Update: Best suggestion I seen so far: Sell all 10 Zen Micro on eBay and buy a Powerbook and iPod :-)

Okay, this may be inappropriate but it is too funny to pass!

Im looking for an investor for my new product “the handjobber”. There are plenty of dildos for women out there, but there are no good masturbators for men. until now. The masturbator is designed using precise aluminum machining and plastic molding. I figure it would retail for 299$. this isnt some stupid blowjob toy with an air pump, this is a true handjobber!

Yes, it is real and absolutely serious. Hey, being entrepreneur is about finding a niche and fill it right? Gosh, someone should submit this for Asian Innovation Awards. :-)

Principle of Bureaucracy


James Seng’s Principle of Bureaucracy #1 : Any problem left unsolved long enough will eventually disappear on its own.

I quote this to Antoin who was ichat’ed me about a recent policy by Irish regulator (Commision for Communications) : Protecting Phone Users from Internet Dialer Scam.

You know, those programs you can download that promises free porns which ends up hanging up your call and then make an IDD call without your knowledge, until you receive a 2,000 phone bill. Happened in Singapore too a couple of years ago but it kind of disappear on its own after people moved on to broadband…(and hence the quote ;-)

Matthew Fordahl of the Associated Press reviews the service pack in this story: “With the latest update to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows XP operating system, personal computers will soon join parents, bosses, teachers and spouses as a source of nagging in your life. But as mom always said, it’s for your own good.”
