3 PDA domains up for grabs at eBay

Just wanted to point out 3 visor / pda domains are up for auction at eBay with NO RESERVE:

http://www.handspringprism.com
http://www.visorprism.com
and
http://www.personal-digital-assistants.com

They would be great for a fan site or something like that!

I don't like this post. From someone with so few posts. And it's not even in the marketplace forum. Methinks this smells bad.

I didn't realize that Marketplace was the right place to post this type of info (I'm new here). Sorry for the misplaced posting.

Cross-posting is frowned upon too.

You can always spot these fly by night "one timers", here today, gone tomorrow, they typically post a "hey I am selling this or that" then gone a few days later never heard from again, easily spotted when you use the "view new posts" link they stick out like a sore thumb..


It doesn't take a genius to assume that this person is more than likely selling those on ebay.. I don't even have to check it.. My guess is they also posted similar messages over at PDA buzz and other "pda" type message boards..


I could be wrong.. but I doubt it..

its almost as good as a button I once saw a sales person wearing..
"Trust me, I'm in sales.."

yeah right..

based on the number of posts they got and their registration date, I can see they are a long time member of VisorCentral and a very active contributing forum member.. Kinda odd how all their posts are bout these domain names and nothing else.. very weird ..

Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

A decade or so later, I am still trying to debate if they really knew what the button meant or they were totally clueless or if it was just bad marketing on the maker of the button... Sorta like the failed electrolux vacuum slogan that almost went live: "nothing sucks like an electrolux".. fortunately someone at some level of the company/ad company "caught it" right before they went to the public with that one.. I heard they spent millions on all sorts of marking paraphernalia only to have to trash it all..

And the Vega, which means "turtle." The "bright star" theme wasn't so good to Chevy...
