You get a copy of an autograph. ;)
The search for more stuff to sell to mobile phone owners, who have had their fill of Crazy Frogs and versions of Tetris, continues with celebrity autographs from Mobile Fun. The initial selection of autographs are of the long dead, who are unlikely to sue, but Mobile Fun reckons there's potential to hook up with living …
What's to stop me downloading the 'autographs' from the website you linked to? It's not as if the word "PREVIEW" has been done in a sensible way that distorts the handwriting. Out of the 26 or so autographs there there's only about 5 you couldn't edit the PREVIEW out of without a bit of effort and even then it's probably not that hard.
So they want to start a new craze eh? Well i've now got 26 autographs in my collection, so who want's to buy them off me?
> Please tell me that no-one is so terminally stupid that they'll actually
> hand money out for a virtual scribble of ink?
It's not quite as dumb as one I saw advertised on TV a couple of years back:
"Turn your mobile into a torch for just £1.50"
That's right, it was an entirely blank, white wallpaper.
It's amazing what you can sell to stupid people, isn't it...
Who the hell thought this scheme up?
Ooo yes I MUST have Aldous Huxley's autograph on my phone - it will make my life COMPLEAT!!!!!
Paris Icon coz she will definitely want Jean Paul Satre's autograph to help her deal with her existential angst...
(the sound of the barrel being well and truly scraped).
Is this it? Is this what we have become?
with the p-p-power of modern phones, there are so many potential applications to be had...
And we get offered...Autographs? ringtones?
re:ringtones, HTC audio manager has the right idea.
Put Mp3 on phone, hit "make ringtone", choose start and end points. That's how it should be done.
Ringtone charts, my arse. I've paid for the bleeding music already, goddammit!
Can we have a bit more authenticity with the description of sounds, please. Something along the lines of Mad magazine.
I'm sure the sound of a barrel being scraped is more like "Schqueeezzzkkthhh"
Paris Hilton because I'd like to do something that goes "squelshhh schlok schlok schlok schlok schlok schlok schlok schlokschlokschlokschlokschlokschlok Ahhhh"
I how many of the signatures will be from nobel prize winners and how many from the latest pop idol/sporting "role model"
While the initial selection appears to include a large percentage of people who actually did something, I think this will go downhill fast.
I'm sure that the people who want Winston Churchill's signature would have enough smarts to get it on their phone
Although if they can get Steve's signature for the iphone they have a ready market of fanbois who will be happy to party with their hard earned dosh
... (a moderate amount of) money for, is the complete autographed list of dummies who will actually purchase an autograph. For my personnal collection of terminally braindead dumbasses.
As I don't own an evil money-eating mobe [BTW, I really like the "mob" in "mobe"] myself, I'd like to get it as an OpenDocumenT file (OOXML is a no-go) -with the autographs as PNGs. Where can I find that? The very same place where I can find OGG ringtones maybe?
