When Wowio was down for its ownership transfer earlier this year, I said I wanted to be notified when they returned. Because of that, I got an email with a link promising a free gift. It’s an almost 14-MB download of an 87-page sampler. The contents are
- Wowio Overview — “introduces the highlights and features that’ll help you make the most of your Wowio experience”
- The Adventures of Tymm: Alien Circus #1 — a 50-page Platinum kids’ comic, ending “to be continued”
- The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County — the 1865 Mark Twain book, with illustrations
The overview section is two pages of “we’re great.” I found it interesting that the options discussed are “read online for free” or “purchase and download”. They’re trying to eliminate the previous model of “download for free”, it appears.
If you want to see for yourself, that link doesn’t appear to be restricted or protected. Unfortunately, their mass mailing didn’t include an “unsubscribe” link, which I thought was standard in such emails.
