In today’s economy, everyone is looking to save all the money they
can. So people take another look at coupons to save money on their
groceries. You can buy the Sunday paper and clip the coupons, haul
them with you everytime you go to the store, or you can go to those
websites that let you print out coupons that you want. Both options
are not really convinent.
This is where my idea comes in. Well its really a rough idea or 2. At
first I was thinking about a coupon savings card that most grocery
stores and CVS Pharmacies have. The cards allow you to take advantage
of savings on certain products just by presenting the card.
So I thought why isn’t there a Manufacturer Savings Card which would be accepted by multiple stores? The Manufacturer Savings Card or MSC, could be loaded by the customer with “ecoupons” of their favorite or most used products via a web interface. For example, I drink a lot of Mountain Dew, I could load the card up with Mountain Dew coupons.
The company that produces the MSC’s could charge a slight fee, either a small monthly fee or a yearly charge, to become profitable.
As I was thinking about how to write this idea up another thought crossed by mind, why not use mobile phones as the MSC. We could use the cell phone’s bluetooth to send the coupon wirelessly. Just a thought.
Well that was my idea, if anyone wants to comment on it feel free.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )

A picture I took with my Sidekick 2008 at Atlantic Beach, Florida on Saturday. Hopefully this works.
I recently purchased a T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 as my new cell phone. The sidekick(SK) works quite well to use twitter, check my gmail and use Google Reader.
One drawback to the SK is that there is no flash support, so no Youtube videos, last.fm, or any other site with flash.
With the full keyboard and Camera on the SK, I wanted to do a 100 percent mobile blog via my SK. So with the lack of flash and other limitations of the SK, the regular version of WordPress.com was unusable.
I used Google to search for a hosted blogging platform that doesn’t use flash, or was a true mobile blogging (moblog) platform. After 2 or 3 hours of searching, I remembered about m.wordpress.com and I am using it now.
So we will see how this works out. The only problem I can see with this is that WordPress.com strips out html code. So this post will also double as a test post.
The thing that gets me is with all the smart phones out there and the move towards a more mobile web, there are very few platforms for a 100% mobile blog. Maybe Matt and the WordPress crew can make some additions to the mobile side of WP.com.
If any of you out there have any other suggestions post them here.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
