the fabulis blog
The fabulis blog is now up and running. Bradford and I will be posting items more relevant to founding fabulis often over there, while I will continue to post broader startup and entrepreneurship items here at betashop. Realistically that means I will be doing more there, and less here, as starting a new company is more than a fulltime gig. I highly encourage you to tune in the fabulis blog...

Great post by a great guy, Tony Wright.
I’ve made the switch from iContact to Constant Contact for email marketing. I previously used iContact for the past 2 years and found it ok but lacking. Constant Contact is just a 10x superior product. Everything just works the way it should. Plus, it’s got this nifty iphone app for instant access to campaign monitoring and management. Highly recommended.

Long awaited but incredibly brilliant. The newest version of Facebook’s iPhone app (released today) now auto-syncs contact information between Facebook and your iPhone contacts.
