Back in 2010, Google made Groupon an offer it was able to refuse. The sultan of search reportedly was willing to pay $5 billion for the online coupon site, and all Groupon's founders had to do was sign the paperwork, cash out, and laugh all the way to the bank. Imagine the audacity of rejecting a multi-billion dollar offer, because that's exactly what Groupon did and you know what? It may have been the right move.
You might already be familiar with Facebook's Check-In Deals, a service the social networking site launched a few months back and designed to help users take advantage of special offers when checking in at a local business from a mobile device. Deals on Facebook is different. This newly launched service is more akin to what Groupon is doing, in that it serves up discounts to select establishments that you purchase online and redeem offline.
You love t-shirts. I love t-shirts. We’re all geeks, and if there’s one thing that geeks love more than random Youtube vdeos, it’s t-shirts related to internet memes/awesome art/random life musings. It’s true! And that’s why this week’s web app of the week has nothing to do with software, making your life better, improving your ability to do offline activities on the web, or any of that usual freeware-related nonsense.
Nope. This week is all about your purse and/or wallet. And your general sense of fashion. There are a t-o-n ton of various sites on the Internet that you can use to purchase interesting and cool-looking duds at a relatively low price. That’s not the point here.
It's a lot harder to both find these sites and scan them all on a daily basis for new stuff to wear. And how can you be sure that what you’re buying is the best style choice for how you want to look? What if a better t-shirt exists, at a lower price, and you just didn’t realize it was out there? Waiting for you to pick it up!
