Announcing partnership with with Rafael Rivera; new subscription pricing model

The day when I outgrow the “I” in has come. After much deliberation with my split personality, a hip young aspiring designer who subscribes to a lavish bi-annual design appreciation cult some refer to as the Apple Store, we have collectively concluded that world domination is twice as fast with two heads instead of one, and to a lesser degree improve our ad revenue as well.

It is therefore with great enthusiasm I announce the partnership with my new partner-in-crime and a Microsoft-enthusiast celebrity most should be familiar with, Rafael Rivera Jr of fame.

This partnership has no immediate effects to all you minions, the loyal readers of this blog, but a new world order identity and website will be developed in the coming months.

In related news, due to the current economic climate – cloudy with a perpetual forecast of thunder, hurricanes and other monstrous forces – this blog will be adopting a subscription model based off the wildly popular Windows Marketplace for Mobile pricing structure to support its operations.

Membership will start at $99 per year and includes free access to viewing 5 articles. If you wish to view more, additional articles may be accessed at $99 per article. Should an article be edited or updated after it is originally published, the updated article can be accessed for $99 per update free within 7 days of original publishing free. If you’re not entirely happy with the contents of an article, you may return it within 24 hours for a full self-service refund. More details on this will be available only if you ask for it. Should you find any of this discouraging, a much fairer subscription model (possibly free) is available if you ask for it.

  5. Nope I didnt change the date. That would be the work of my evil server adminstrator :p

    I’ve changed it back now.

  6. May I suggest a domain name for your new joint venture?

    (Yes, I posted this same comment to first, I feel i have a duty to post to my compatriot in the Windows Beta Program’s site first.)

  7. I’ll have one of the free* subscriptions please… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    *Free-of-charge service only applicable upon discretion by site publisher and Jackalope.

  8. @Oscar, hmm… not to me, but whatever floats your boat.

    In general I find the sheer volume of april fools “jokes” on the web quite tiring these days. It’s become a day when it’s not really worth bothering to do much surfing at all.

  9. As long as you don’t lose your sense of humor in this ‘fake’ merger, Long, then it’s allll goood ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love the layout of this website too, not so much Rafael’s ๐Ÿ˜›
