Re: Free upgrade ?
- Hi jcmcgowan01,
as I read your post first I was tempted to write an immediate and
rather ironic answer. I didn't, mostly for two reasons - 1) I was at
work at that time (and I have not to waste my boss's money by doing
private things - reading groups.yahoo seemed enough waste for then),
2) One should not write emails (or any letters) when in anger and/or
Now I'm at home. And I've seen Jody wrote a polite and complete answer.
By this I re-read your post. And I can't resist any longer to answer
it my way ;-) Sorry, Jody, sorry, Don, and sorry to any who will
simply find this filling up their inbox for no good.
I can't find when exactly I bought my first licence for using a copy
of NoteTab Pro but it must be in the midth of the 90's, last century.
So I'm probably an even more loyal customer than you, right?
Following your sort of logic, Fookes Software would very probably have
to PAY ME for using the latest version NoteTab, if not now, then more
or less soon in the future. Since whenever a new major version
arrives, they must substract any of what I have paid in sum from the
new version original price to keep what I paid them at all below or at
least equal to the new original price. What an idea.
In fact I paid Fookes for using a copy of NoteTab 3, then of NoteTab
4, and now I paid them for using a copy of NoteTab 5. I could also
have said "Good, 4 is fine for me, I don't need 5" (as I really did
not long before , but then changed my mind ;-)) -- and I could use my
right to run NoteTab 4, and nobody ever would deny me that just for
the reason of NT 5 is out now.
And that's all the same for you!, <ironic>even being not so much loyal
When you bought your license you bought it for NT 4.95. Now 5 is out,
you can buy a license for this too, and to a really special price,
since you ARE a "loyal customer". You do NOT have to pay more for
getting NT 5 than a new customer. You pay less! You HAVE a licencse to
NoteTab 4.95. The Newbie has not! If you by 5, you pay for 5! Not for
a bundle of 4 and 5.
Please just even TRY to understand this scheme.
As Jody already pointed out (I know... but he was polite, I'm being
not, so I say:) what you are whining about is that you have "missed"
the chance to get 5 for free while buying 4.95, by just a couple of
days. Spare a little bit of your mind from bewhining $5.50 for getting
the idea that a deadline MUST BE made - by definition of a date, not
of different dates for different persons of different loyality.
I missed this deadline too, BTW. OK, by some more than two weeks. But,
really, where is the difference?!
There can be a lot more sayed on this. But it was now more than enough
time wasted on this topic (IMHO) - you wrote a lot of words about it,
Jody wrote a lot polite and helpful, Don wrote right and tried to
stop, but I couldn't resist and added even more words and time to that
I'll stop doing so, right now.
But not before having finally added that I really know much more
frustrating places than the one you say you're putted in.
