DailyDirt: All The Little Things

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Making a product look better than one of its competitors to consumers sometimes comes down to the little things. Useful little features here and there can really add up. But sometimes marketing focuses on things that shouldn't really matter. Here are a few examples that could go either way. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Why do people think shoeboxes are necessary anyway? I wear mine out of the store.

    I put my old shoes in the new shoe box. This gives them then prefect environment to 'age' in. Then I filter liquid through them and sell it as wine to would be wine enthusiasts. I often too slap a picture of a fruit on the wine bottle.
