Sony Part II

OK, so I heard back from Sony on their Facebook page… yes, I know. Anyhow, even though I redeemed the code before the expiration date and downloaded one move (The Amazing Spiderman), I didn’t download any of the others, and they didn’t automatically download (even though I did redeem the code), so I “lost” the remaining nine movies that were part of the offer. Lame.

Really, Sony?

So, last year, my lovely wife and I bought a Sony 4K set (the 65″ one) and got the 4K player too.  It included 10 “4K” movies along with it.  I dutifully used the code provided to download the movies.  I checked the other day, and they are gone.  Searching the Internet, I found this article at Sony Support:

PTV_4K 10 movie promo date

Bottom line – the picture they show at the link above says the OFFER expires 12/31/2013.  It does NOT say the movies disappear after 12/31/2013. I am also including the actual image from their article here just in case they try to revise history and pull their own article down.

This is CLEARLY a mistake by Sony.  An offer is something you can redeem.  I redeemed the offer before the end of the year.  If they meant that the movies were going to expire (and disappear) at then end of 2013, then they should have said that.  There is NO WAY anyone can dispute that it is the OFFER that expires, not the movies.

Come on Sony!  Own up to your mistake and give me my movies back!

Long Time No Blog…

I know it has been a month since I last Blogged, and there is a TON of stuff going on in the world of mobility, so you are probably asking yourself, “what gives?”

I am on a HUGE project at work, and I don’t have any time to work with mobile devices. I am anxious to get back (hopefully in January) to working with mobile devices, including the Droid, the Hero, and the newest OS on the Pre. I am also hoping to be invited to participate in the TAP for WinMo 7, whenever that starts up.

Stay tuned 🙂

Flock, The Social Web Browser

I just downloaded and installed a great new browser – Flock.  It uses the same engine as Firefox and also uses all the add-ons (like Ghostery and Ad-Block Plus).  It has direct hooks into Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, and blogs like WordPress.  I am new to it, and I am liking it already.  Check it out.
