Ricochet Mobile

“I’ve got Peter Robinson in the palm of my hand”

“I’ve got Rob Long at my fingertips”


  1. I think you’re taking it a bit too literally.

    That may be so, Blue Yeti, but I must confess to feeling a little of what Nick Stuart is feeling when I see those ads, and kind of glad I don’t have a mobile device other than my laptop. Peter Robinson and Rob Long on my lap. Top. Ewww. (No disrespect to either worthy gentleman…)

    Don’t dig the hand-held action? That’s okay, because with Ricochet Classic you can have James Lileks on your laptop whenever you want.

    Paleologus, that is an even more disturbing idea…

    Just teasing Blue, I have Ricochet Mobile and it is a lifesaver at work. The RM icon has pride of place on my mobile home page.

  6. Full disclosure: I wrote both of those ads, and that angle never occurred to me. But if they got your attention enough to post and comment on, then I declare them a success! ;-)

    I hope you don’t mind too much EJHill — think of it as homage to a great master?
