Disclosures

The relationship that we build with our readers is based on trust. Anything we say, any opinion we have will bear no value if this trust is lost. So, this page is built with the hopes of dissipating any impressions of impropriety and conflict of interest. These conflicts may seem to arise when we appear to have a financial interest in the products we review.

More to the point, when manufacturers send us products for review, it does happen that we are allowed to keep them. We wish to make it clear that we pay great care to maintain our impartiality and will never, for any reason, give a product a positive review when we feel it is undeserved.

But, for the sake of complete disclosure and transparency, following below is a constantly updating list of the products we have been allowed to keep.

- The Earbudclips
- The OHSO Travel Toothbrush
- The X-Garments
- The Sleeptracker Watch
- The Diode Watch
- The Weather Station
- The Picopad
- The Nokia N70
- The Slappa Bulkhead PRO
- The Nexus Wicked Laser
- The Freestyle Gluegun
- The Gelaskins
- The Syder Series Laser
- Tom Bihn Empire Builder
- Waterfield Designs Sleevecase
- Tom Bihn Imago Yin
- The Nokia N91
- Vaja Nokia E61 Leather Case
- WaterField Designs iPod Cases
- db clay myDuctbills Kit + Stampage Wallet
- Saitek peripherals
- Helio handsets

Additionally, we may from time to time receive compensation to look at and review a given product or service. When this happens, the article in question will be clearly marked, and disclosure will occur each time; you won’t have to “discover” this page to know what’s going on. We are never required to give a product a positive spin merely because we’re being compensated and the opinions expressed are always our own, whether the company affected likes it or not. We’ll get paid either way, and even if no one ever wants to compensate us to review something ever again, we won’t lose any sleep over it: we already make plenty from traditional ads on the site.

But the most important message we wish to convey with this page is the fundamental building block of trust: telling the truth. We don’t hide anything, and we’re upfront with everything so you can make up your own minds.

For a longer version of this Code of Ethics, you may consult WOMMA.

    I am not sure if you are aware of YouMail which is a Cellular service that offers enhanced Voicemail – that allows you to customize your Voicemail greeting per each callers ID and also for you to check your voicemail online or on your phone.

    The nice feature about Youmail – other than that it is free – is that there is no need to change your current Cell number – this works with your current number. So there is not the hassle of trying to get all of your friends and co-workers to call on a new number to take advantage of the service.

    Another popular feature of YouMail – is DitchMail – which lets you pick a caller ID – and then choose a message to play when they call and then it hangs up without giving the caller the chance to leave a message. Nice for when someone gets ahold of your number that you know you do not want to get a message from.

    If you would like to talk to someone from YouMail or learn more about YouMail please let me know.

    Best Regards,

    Hey Rob Walch,

    As Editor and Spelling Wrecker of The Peter Files Blog of Comedy, Satire, Jokes, Commentary and Videos. I thought I would review your comment.

    Generally, it looks like you have taken a chance to post an ad for your service on someone else’s blog disguising it as a helpful service, just as I am doing now. Now unless you are related to someone here at this great, informative tech blog, one wonders why you would do so here, on this high-traffic(?) disclosure page instead of asking them to actually review your service themselves and issue a post about it like all these other tech companies did.

    By the way, ohgizmo, feel free to stop by my blog, I do have some tech-related humor, especially about the International Blog Repair Scam, and some Mac funnies, whatever I thought of or could find, and feel free to review it, but I think reviewing my blog, welcome as it is, is probably out of your purview, but you are welcome anyway. Its SFW and free.

    Oh, you say that your service is free, but doesn’t the ditchmail service take time, and if that incoming time is over 60 seconds, don’t most cell services charge for that?

    At any rate, your typing and spelling seem to be OK, but the message is pretty long for what it is. I think you could have covered the same material in about 2 lines. But that’s what us satirists r here 2 point out.

    Loving you,

    Peter, Editor in Chief and Spelling Wrecker, Junior Assistant Reviewer
