The Buzzirk Hype
Just some of the claims that the company, the press and the distributors were making about the phones and the service.
This page includes official press releases, company information direct from a Buzzirk mobile website, some extremely “thought provoking” independent distributors, PC Mag and Laptop Mag, who subsequently went on to award them a Best In Show without actually using the service, and towards the bottom some you tube video interviews of Ben Piilani and one rather interesting endorsement from CNN’s Clark Howard.
It has to be added that there were many more claims of the phones and service but Global Verge reigned in the independent distributors and had the COO, Craig Perry inform everyone that they could not use any site that was not authorized by GV or Buzzirk to promote the product, additionally he made claims of trademark (that have still to be clarified) so distributors couldn’t use the Buzzirk name in domains, emails, and blogs etc. So much of the information that was originally in the public domain is gone but you will get a good idea of what was being hyped by what is here.
Now most of if not all of this is being used to endorse the companies and this service so the questions have to be asked about what responsibility Laptop Mag and CNN are going to take if this all goes south.?
