Some folks are glowing, flattering and enticing behind their keyboards, yet when I receive the product they promised me it is not what they promised. And yet they expect a glowing review from me about their product. Others just want a post and will pay good money, considering the exchange rate; when I ask for a product rather than money I’m told of the distance, how far I am and how inconvenient it would be. This is why I continue to decline such requests because they imply that my blog is for sale. I learnt a very harsh lesson in the early days of this blog that it’s all about the money, nothing else. There was an instance where some PR company rep wanted me to install an advertising banner for a few days for one of his clients. I obliged and when I retorted that he should consider sending me a pair of shorts I never heard from him again. He had gotten his advertising at my expense at no cost at all.
So this is the last of it. Something inside me doesn’t want to ‘expose’ or put people on blast but the companies or representatives who have been contacting me trying to push their product for instant gratification with no thought of establishing a relationship shouldn’t even consider contacting me. Even those who have sent me sub-par products should think about their actions. Unless it’s because I’m African that you think you can pull a fast one on me, I don’t know. But I will no longer tolerate my work or my blog being taken for granted. I can understand that for some business is business devoid of any kind of altruism, but please don’t fault me when I am also merely looking out for my best interests.

Lest you think that the Jaybird works with only laptops, that’s not so. It is compatible with devices with Bluetooth capabilities, tablets, cell phones, smart phones. They also serve a dual function in that you can make and receive calls through your telephone device and speak through an integrated microphone with Clear Voice Capture technology. You can also use it for SKYPE.
