A few months ago, I was all fired up about Groupon, especially for restaurant deals. However, it’s been over a month now and I haven’t seen any restaurant deals worth pursuing. The good deals mysteriously have all but disappeared, but why?
I’ve read a few posts critical of Groupon’s business model, especially as it relates to merchants. In short, the bottom line for merchants is Groupon is not good for business. Is it possible that the restaurants around here who gave Groupon a shot, found out the new customers they were hoping to get never materialized? Instead, all Groupon did was give regular customers a 50% deal off their check — and that’s it.
If that’s the case, then it really is no surprise that restaurants aren’t running Groupons anymore, why should they?
I’m currently running an auction with 33 Watchers. eBay has always provided a Views count option but for some reason, not Watchers. There must be a reason why eBay won’t do this, but I can’t figure out what that is. Anybody know? Thanks.

I recently noticed that on my iPhone Twitter app, my membership number is posted (I joined August, 2006). Where is that info on the desktop Twitter?
After doing the latest rounds of system updates for my iMac, Toast 6 Titanium is now burning very distorted audio discs. To verify that it wasn’t the iMac’s burner, I did a test disc using iTunes, no problems. Guess it’s time to get a newer version of Toast.
Fresh Choice recently changed their wonderful Chipotle Hummus recipe due to “some seniors complained that it was too spicy.” Well… now it doesn’t taste anything like it used to. 😐
Everybody I know who had tried the “old” Chipotle Hummus thought it was great — NONE of us like the new version. Surely the voices of all those who did not complain far outnumber the seniors that did, right?
Fresh Choice, if you’re listening, please bring it back! Thank you.
That is the nature of the service, Mrs. Brock. It is called diplomacy. And in it’s practice, the English lead the world.
