In the last two weeks, I’ve gotten blogger pitched by a number of interesting new (and somewhat new) services. Since it’s Thanksgiving day, you’re likely reading this blog post as a way to get away from the family fun. Therefore, it’s a good day to check out some of these new services.
The folks at Strands sent a cool T-shirt & sticker. They have some interesting functionality, but are entering a (somewhat) crowded market. It’s an impressive approach though, so definitely worth a try.
I Wear Your Shirt
I might just have to do …this as soon as I have t-shirts. Too fun not too. Basically this idea replaces the million dollar pixel concept with something vastly more interesting. Here’s the pitch:
The idea is simple, I am selling a part of my wardrobe (shirts) for the entire year of 2009. No exceptions. I plan on wearing a different shirt every single day. The days are selling for ‘face-value’ so January 1 is $1 and December 31 is $365.
From the folks at ping.fm. Here’s the pitch:
Workstir connects consumers with reputable local service providers. As a consumer you just post a new, and let the offers come to you. As a service provider, just sign up and we’ll tell you when new jobs aere posted in your area. A win-win.
A new twist on dating sites. Here’s the pitch:
We just introduced a new website with revolutionary software that allows us to locate users 24 hours a day, safely matching them with other singles nearby. This ability to update a user’s location in real-time as he goes about his day is nothing but ground breaking.
“The Web’s smartest social shopping site”
“TurnTo is based on a simple idea: Even in the age of the web, friends are often the best source of advice. And when you ask a friend, you not only get advice you can trust (or at least, can calibrate), you reaffirm your relationship with the other person.”
