Latest eMessage news

April 21, 2010

Okay. Due to recent firewall changes at Choice Hotels HQ I’m forced to blog from my iPhone. We’ll see if this becomes an impediment or if it’s expressly forbidden but I’m goingvto assume that blogging isn’t forbidden, just access to wordpress.com from our computers is forbidden. Maybe they’ll open up access on the future; however since I haven’t heard of a blogging policy, I’ll continue here 🙂
We had Unica at Corporate HQ in Silver Spring last week. Overall I picked up a few pointers but we’re already taxing eMessage 6’s capabilites. I’ll have to see if we can present at a future MIS or user group: I’m thinking of the title “How Dynamic Do You Want Your Email To Be?” Our guest survey is an impressive feat of engineering with dynamic content all over the place – portions will be placed at the top, bottom or in the middle in 6 languages and yet at the top level we have a generic “container.” Plus we’re running in a batch, lights out mode with our own document open and click thru statistics collection. And we support q/a along side production seamlessly. I’m very proud even if it’s complex. Hacks?you bet! Work arounds? A plenty. Solid? No doubt! 🙂 I hope ur all translates well to Affinium eMessage 7 and possibly eMessage 8.

AT&T: Verizon ads are ‘blatantly false’ | Signal Strength – CNET News

November 14, 2009

AT&T wants to set the record straight about its 3G wireless coverage.

The company has placed a statement on its Web site defending itself against critical advertisements Verizon Wireless has been running that highlight areas of the country where AT&T lacks 3G coverage.

“We typically don't respond to competitors' advertising,” AT&T said in its statement. “However, some recent ads from Verizon are so blatantly false and misleading that we want to set the record straight about AT&T's wireless-data coverage.”

Verizon's initial advertisement, which began airing on TV a couple of weeks ago, mocks Apple's “there's an app for that” slogan. Instead, Verizon's advertisement says “there's a map for that.”

Okay, so this is also just a test of the “press this” bookmarklet.  The Verizon videos can be found on You Tube or click on the link.  Even though they’re false, they are kind of funny.  Kind of reminds me of what Apple did with the “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” ads.
