|Like everybody else, I've confirmed that the phone numbers (toll-free, regular toll, and fax) no longer work for Websurfer Pro. The only thing up seems to be their web page, but it's now registered to someone who has an anonymous free "yahoo.com" email address.|
That said, I'm wondering to what extent our rush on $50 units without TOS at CompUSA (their major retailer) impacted their business model. Said differently, how much of a negative impact did we have? Did they fail because very few legitimate customers signed up? Or did they fail because very few legit customers could acquire a unit after the hacker rush? Or perhaps the company went under because, without the standard 2-year Earthlink subscription kickback, they couldn't cover their costs by selling the units for $50 each...
Anybody have any thoughts, opinions, or -- even better -- actual facts they can share?
