Unlike investors in Ford & GM, by the way, CIC is no Ford or GM nor will it ever be, this board is filled with technology savy people or they would not be here. As the products using CIC software are relatively inexpensive compared the products sold by Ford & GM, people investing in the company might want to check out the products (something an investor does not casually due with products produced by Ford and GM).
I don't particular care what the magazines are saying about Casiopeia E10, that's old news, but I would like to hear from ANY positive experiences from real users of the products. The magazine reporters are paid to try these products; how about those of us who have to pay to buy them.
Anyone buying and using products with CIC software ?
By the way, FT, I look around our office and that of many business associates and the Palm Pilot is used quite alot; however, no one I have spoken with is using Palm Pilot for it's handwriting recognition cababilities. They ALL use it for it's scheduling capabilities (so the likely hood of these users upgrading to CIC's Jot is probably very slim.
When JOT is sold with every new Palm Pilot rather than the consumers having to (1) Learn after the fact that JOT is available (since there is a ZERO marketing effort to new consumers); (2)Purchasers having once learned of JOT, after their initial purchase, having to going to the internet and down load JOT as replacement software for something they just recently purchased; then and only then will CIC start showing significant sales.
IMO - CIC needs a marketing campaign now if they are ever going to do anything positive. If they wait for positive earnings before they beging real marketing as Mr. Sassower has suggested to others on this board, then there may be another Chapter 11 or possibly 7 this time around. The DOW will reach 20,000 before CICI reached $2.00 unless this company begins to promote what it has to offer. Blind Mass Mailings to buyers of Palm Pilots is a cheap and not necessarily very effective way to market a new product if that is ALL that is being done.
By the way, at the Sharper image, Casiopeia E10 has a card next to it describing the machine and the #1 item at the top of the list is JOT.
