I just read this over at Salon.com (Dated August 2, 2007), and I am officially pissed off:
“Though the Zonbu is on sale now, it is still officially in an unfinished “public beta” mode, and engineers are hard at work fixing many of the problems…”
Yes, and I’m hard at work finding more.
What the hell?
I don’t see anywhere on the main www.zonbu.com site where it says the product I’m buying is a “public beta”. I don’t recall agreeing that the product may not be full baked yet but that I didn’t mind.
I read all kinds of great marketing material that made me feel all warm and fuzzy. The term public beta did not come up once. Did I miss it all? Did you other buyers know the company considers the current release to be “public beta”?
During the purchase experience I didn’t notice any reference to a “public beta” either.
I feel lied too, although it does explain some of the issues I’m seeing.
This is no way to start a relationship. Zonbu needs to step up and explain themselves.
