What a Moron Manufacturer

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 03, 2013

Every so often, we run into a manufacturer so moronic, so completely clueless, that it stuns even us. Today, I'd like introduce you to Viaas / Third Iris.

Long term readers of the site may remember a test we did of Viaas in 2010 where we found it to be one of the more promising VSaaS startups. Unfortunately, the company did not make much progress and evidently now has new management with only modest fundamental improvements to the product offerings.

He's got enough free time to be posting self-serving comments on your 3VR article but apparently he's way too busy for the two clicks necessary to cancel his account so he needs to farm that work out to "his admin"?

Deuche.

Geez another winner of a company...soon to be forgotten.

Soo many people with such thin skin......

Buy my stuff!!! Buy my stuff!!! ;-)

Hope he does cancel his account

"It's sad that a once promising startup has reduced itself to pestering people online and trotting out booth babes."

Sounds like they took a page from the Firetide ops manual ;-)

A wise man once said, "Advertising is a tax for unremarkable products."

The more one offers something of true value that truly addresses customer pain points, the less advertising is necessary. The product is your marketing. I know Apple is not related, but marketing is marketing and they're considering #1 in marketing.

Tell me if this 2 minute video intro at Apple's 2013 WWDC doesn't touch you:
