Often, when you register on a website, they ask you this question, “How did you hear about us?” A problem with web-pages is, that tone doesn’t get conveyed properly. It might make more sense to ask, “How did you hear about us!?”
I have been trying out Ekiga recently, and decided to purchase an SIP PC-to-phone account. I chose SIP over Skype, simply because it doesn’t restrict me to one provider, offers better rates, and is non-proprietary. Ekiga recommends Diamondcard as its PC-to-phone provider, and they offer fairly competitive rates.
I registered on Saturday night, and I was informed that I will be contacted by a customer care representative to activate my account — of course, I had to wait till a weekday.
And when this guy called, he very casually asks me where I stayed, what’s my mobile number, and finally, “How did you hear about us!?”
