They know their market

02/11/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
PocketGear just sent out an email advertising one of their regular promotions. It was (as one might expect for this week) Valentine's Day themed. The kicker was in the title of the email: Subject: Spending Valentine's Day Alone? Try Astraware… more »
