What’s Apple Trying to Do?

For Christmas this year I got my first MacBook Pro. I’ve been really excited about all the functionality and ease of use. As they say, “Once you go Mac, you’ll never go back!” So it is with me.

However, lately I’ve been getting this pop-up and it reminds me of Windows:

apple pushing safari

So, why is Apple trying to subtly force me to install Safari? I read an article about Firefox being really ticked off about this.

What Apple is doing now with their Apple Software Update on Windows is wrong. It undermines the trust relationship great companies have with their customers, and that’s bad — not just for Apple, but for the security of the whole Web. What they did yesterday was to use their updater for iTunes to also install their Safari Web browser –what follows is some background and analysis. – John Lilly

What’s the status? Is Safari really that good? Is is better than Firefox?

What’s worse than this initial pop-up is the 2nd one I got:

safari download


Persistence can pay off I guess.  But is Apple really that desperate to get Safari on everyone’s computers? I’ll bet many people have uploaded Safari without even knowing what they did. Interesting strategy Apple – please don’t fall in to the Microsoft or Windows campaign…

Free Advertising for Your Website – How to Get It

I’ve been working with clients for a few years now and am always intrigued by the ideas people come up with. It’s really fun to put a few minds together and see the result of a powerful brainstorm. I’ve been really impressed with many of my clients for their hard work, dedication, and committment to succeed. Keep up the great work and Expect Success!

Mark KayeOne of my current clients is really using his talents and skill-set to make things happen. He is a professional radio and TV announcer by trade and has interviewed some of the stars, including ShoeMoney. As we’ve talked about his ideas and worked on staying focused, I feel things have really come together for him.

One of his ideas that I think many of my clients could benefit from is a teleseminar about getting free advertising from the radio. Offline marketing is acceptable for an online site 🙂 I know some of you may have never thought of that concept but offline marketing really does work for a website too.

Here’s a brief synopsis of what he’s offering:

Radio and TV Talk Show host Mark Kaye will show you why spending money on expensive radio and TV advertising is a total waste for you and your business. Especially when there are BILLIONS of dollars worth of FREE air time that radio and tv producers are STRUGGLING to fill! Do you have a product, service, website, store, book, blog, opinion, invention, or theory that you want to publicize? You can reach millions of people all over the world from the comfort of your own home and without spending a dime.

In this EXCLUSIVE Teleclass, Mark Kaye will show you just how easy it is to become a credible “expert guest” for radio and TV shows across America and the World! He will teach you how to refine and pitch yourself so that you are guaranteed bookings! He will explain step-by-step how producers decide which guests make it on the air and which don’t. Plus, he will tell exactly what to do to turn your publicity into sales and secure repeat appearances.

Learn from a radio insider. Mark has booked hundreds and hundreds of guests. He reads thousands of press releases. He knows what works and what doesn’t, and he can make you a radio and tv publicity star!

The best news is, for my readers only, he is offering a great discount of 25% off the regular price. I’m definitely going to take advantage of this great information on getting free advertising. Here’s the information:

Date: April 17, 2008

Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. EST

I know spots are limited so sign up today. I’ll be on the call for sure.

Congrats to Mark for doing what he loves to do and seeing the fruits of his labor.  I plan to use the information I learn from this call for my cheerleading photography website and other sites too.  I’ll keep you posted on how it works out.

Craigslist Incident Resolved!

Craigslist ThievesIf you hadn’t heard, today Craigslist was in the news and it wasn’t good. Apparently someone had made a listing on Craigslist stating that everything at a Jacksonville, Oregon home was free for the taking. This same “clever duo” then participated in the “free offering” in order to steal a couple horse trailers.

What they didn’t know was that police could easily track IP addresses that Craigslist provided. That little lack of knowledge got these two thieves caught and booked.

Moral of the story – there’s no such thing as a “get-rich-quick” online scheme!
