WebSkulker remembers seeing ads about 15 years ago for a product called something like "Trackatron Pen" that was probably vaporware because the ads disappeared after a while and he never heard of this product from any source other than these ads. The Trackatron Pen was a radio transmitter that looked like a pen that you would clip into your shirt pocket while at work. Each room and hallway of the building would have a receiver that would sense the unique codes being transmitted by the pens, so the system would always know where you were. The ads showed several legitimate uses for this product, such as looking at a computer screen to find where someone was if you needed to talk to them, automatic unlocking of doors that this employee was authorized to pass through, and an interface with the telephone system so that if someone dialed a person's extension, the phone system would automatically forward the call to the office where they were visiting right now.
WebSkulker was reminded of this when he ran across the above page about a wearable badge system that does the same thing. This item isn't anything the average jr. skulker can use, but is mentioned to alert you to technology that might someday be available to all companies.
"Esnipe is an online automated bidding system for eBay auctions. Instead of placing your bids directly with eBay, you place them through esnipe. Our site stores the information you submit until a few seconds before the end of the auction you are interested in. At that point, esnipe places a bid with eBay on your behalf. This final bidding process works exactly the same way as if you placed the bid manually, so all eBay bidding rules apply - including proxy bidding.
The Weekly World News (WWN) has always been WebSkulker's favorite checkout stand tabloid because they make no pretense of the truth; their stories are obviously fiction and are always weird and funny. WebSkulker likes it so much that he even subscribed for a year. During that time, he was running a mail order business and Jr. Skulker John Cunningham worked for him. An issue of WWN arrived in the mail that had a big picture of some psychic, with a headline and story claiming that touching the picture of the psychic every morning would bring good luck. We tried it and sure enough, every day that we touched the picture, we sold a lot of products. The picture got dirty and grungy after a while and we threw it away. Strangely enough we still sold a lot of products every day.
