Caller ID – Wish They Could Do Something Like That For SPAM

I remember the days of Pops dodging the phone from bill collectors and not picking up when I would call home to tell him I was staying at a friends after school. I once got in trouble for ‘not calling’ when I did call he just did not answer because he did not want to deal with the tella-marketers and I almost got grounded until I flipped out to Mom and flipped it on him.

Then the wonderful invention of Call ID hit the Cain house hold and suddenly you could screen calls and only pick up the ones that were actually important to you. I guess a SPAM filter works kind of like that but it is not full proof. I still end up with SPAM in my inbox all the time.

I don’t know what would revolutionary for SPAM protection like Caller ID was for phones in the 90s but I am sure someone will figure out something. Theres got to be smarter people than I working on it right now.

Rick Rolled – SPAM at it’s best

I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

Weight Loss SPAM

I do not consider myself an over weight guy, and I don’t know how I got on the list for all this diet pill SPAM (maybe penis enlarger but that is a different story, ha). But seriously everyday I get e-mails promises great weight loss results I wouldn’t even need if they really did work. I could probably gain ten pounds rather than lose them, so why am I getting all these e-mails.

No I am not putting those weird weight loss chemicals in my drinks let alone my body. No I would not like a membership to a gym. And no I do not want a bunch of frozen low calorie TV dinners, deserts, and snacks. That crap can all go back to the people who sent it to me. They’re fat sacks that are just trying to make themselves feel better by conning others. I have had enough. Go sell your fat farm products to some other schmuck.

Slim chews? Pft, yeah right.

Video Game SPAM

My brother and I have never really seen eye to eye on common interests. While I round my bike around with my friends and played in bands he was was busying playing dungeons and dragons and building computers with his friends. It’s not that I don’t play my fair share of video games but I just don’t understand the World of Warcraft or Mario’s Galaxy. So I thought I’d put together a SPAM blog about what gets computer gamers riled up.

My brother says the worst SPAM are the fake games that when you lose (or even worst when you win, he says) you get pushed to an add or forced to sign up for some mailing list to get more. I guess nothing if worst than getting a taste of what you want (in this case a video game) and not being able to have it. I guess I feel him, I get tricked in the fake PAC Man adds every now and than.

Looking for a GPS Navigation App for iPhone

I recently switch from an Android powered My Touch 3G to Apple’s iPhone and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a switch I’ve wanted to make for some time now but couldn’t because I’m still under contract with T-moblie who doesn’t not support the iPhone. Everything about the ISO system running on the iPhone is pretty similar to the Android platform but seems to much much sleeker and user friendly.

There are some things about the my old Android phone that I miss however. Like the widgets on the home screens for one. Apple was the first to introduce widgets on their dashboard but never utilized the idea on ISO and I don’t understand why. I also miss the GPS on my Android. Although the iPhone’s mapping is powered but Google maps, it is no faster than the Android’s and it does not offer turn by turn navigation or automatic rerouting. I know there are navigation apps out there on the iTunes store but I can’t seem to find a free one that isn’t covered with SPAMy ads.

Anyone out there know of a good free GPS navigation app for iPhone?

You know, sometimes advertisements have a way of getting your attention. For instance, check this one out:

Follow this link to visit! Details apply.
 Pizza   Survey  Pizza Survey
 visit   this   link

How is this possible?
Complete our offer ond we’ll give you a large PIZZA HUT pizza! How?
It’s easy! Our sponsor pay to be apart of our program, wich allows us

But what about getting a free pizza? What’s wrong with that? Well, how about when Pizza Hut isn’t really the one handing out the pizza?

The statement that “the advertisers in this email are not affiliated with any of the above brands” is in fine print below the image. Leave it to me to find this out. But then again, who is the pizza coming from? Well, apparently it’s originalpromoclub.com, which is what the image link points to. Interesting enough.

Norton Partner

Well, I can tell you straight away that I sure never clicked anything that said I wanted to receive special promotions. The funnier side of things is that I do all of my computing on a MacBook Pro. I don’t need Norton anything. But the whole I’m-too-cool-for-a-virus idea side, I still wouldn’t get Norton.

Why wouldn’t I? Well, Avast and AVG have free antivirus software that is just as powerful and has regular updates. I don’t believe that you should have to pay to protect what you already own. It’d be like having to pay a monthly subscription for an in-house safe.

HELLO!

TOTAL CONFIDENCE
Barr. Jose Pedro.
Private Email: josepedroo55@mycin.net

ATTN: Sir/Madam

We do not know each other, but you are the only person I sent this email with hope to get a positive and sincere response, in order to go into a deal that would bring life fortune to both of us.

I am Barrister, Jose Pedro solicitor at law. I am the personal attorney to Engr. Morris Gad , who was a Contractor and has spent most of his life in my country (Spain ).
On the 20th of August 2008, my client, his wife and their only son were involved in a plane crash . All occupants of the plane unfortunately lost their lives see here for details ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/madrid ). Since then I have made several enquiries to his embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but all efforts was unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you and solicit for your assistance as a foreigner to execute the claim of this fund.

I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the assets and Capital valued at US$18.5million left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank in, madrid spain where these huge deposits were lodged. The said bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated within the next twenty-one Official working days.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the Next of kin to the deceased since no-one has come for the fund, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. The request of a foreigner as the next of kin in this transaction is occasioned by the fact that my client was a foreigner and the money cannot be paid into a local bank here, so it will be better for you to stand as the next of kin to my client. Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim.

All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please reply via e-mail at; josepedroo55@mycin.net

Best Regards,

Barr.Jose Pedro

The fun part about this is that if you go to mycin.net, the place that provides his supposedly legit email, you get nothing. Nice try. I also love how it’s like TOTAL CONFIDENCE! As if that would make be believe this BS story.
