More – Place eBay Bids In The Last Second

  • June 17, 2010

GoSnipe.comTo be honest, I feel sort of silly when I think about the things I used to do when I was utterly addicted to eBay. I have actually lost track of the times I stayed awake well past midnight in order to place a last-minute bid, and in many of those cases I ended up being the one and only bidder.

I think the straw that broke the camel’s back (IE, the one that drove my brother nuts because the computer was in his room and he had to stay awake as well) was the time I waited until 4:00 AM to bid for a copy of The Who’s “Live At Leeds” CD. I won the auction alright, but I fooled around too much (and too long). That was the end of my bidding sprees. And that is a good thing, because if I still were hooked on that I would put a service like GoSnipe to a frantic use.

You see, is an online tool that takes care of placing eBay bids automatically. It does so in the very last few seconds of an auction, and the bidding wars that I always feared (and that I seldom, saw, frankly) become simply non-existent. In theory, this should result in more wins at lower prices. And a very nice feature is that goSnipe can likewise be employed to group related bids together. This means that you can individualize several auctions, and if one of these is won then the other pending bids are automatically canceled.

TablePronto.comJust launched in LA, Table Pronto creates a market for the most coveted reservations in town, put up for sale by honest cancellers, or flinty-eyed reservers who made their bones scalping Aerosmith tickets. Using it is simple: choose a restaurant and immediately you’ll get available tables; search by options including party size, days/times your interested in, and amount you’re willing to pay (how bad do you really want that promotion/marriage to come through?).

Key your credit card, and you’ll get an email with the name of the table donor. This is a place where people come together to buy and sell restaurant reservations for the most coveted, high demand and exclusive restaurants in the nation.

More – Reach everyone right now

  • September 26, 2007, when used responsibly, is a great tool for group organizers and friends to receive last minute information and group wide announcements.

The idea is that when people get together last minute changes happen all the time (location, time, weather) and it is nearly impossible to reach everyone involved quickly. With, you can send Message Blasts and Event Blasts to reach people in real-time and receive responses immediately. Users can organize their own phonebook, input the IM (MSN,Yahoo, or AOL), mobile number and email of their contacts, and send messages to all three simultaneously. Contacts can be clumped into groups so that instead of messaging one person at a time, users can “blast” entire groups at a time. The time has come where simply sending and email, calling and even IMing does not insure that the recipient will receive the message, so Trumpia aims to beat the odds by blasting all three at once. is perfect for groups of friends, sports teams, social clubs, small businesses and more. Group communication has never been easier or more time efficient, if you can’t reach a contact with, you’ve got a problem.
