The Early Buzz…

Enthused about Dave’s approach…

John C. Dvorak

Leading Industry Analyst, Columnist, Podcaster, No Agenda

What a cool idea! When I want to buy something, I don’t want to know what the manufacturer wants me to believe, or what some pedantic reviewer is harping on, or what some money-making “review” site is recommending. I want to know what my friends and experts have found is the best.

Alex Eckelberry

CEO, Technology Growth Engineering

CoolHotNot makes it fast and easy to understand what tech products make sense for me, since my friends and experts have already done the research for me.

Brandon Rowberry

CEO, Maverick Partners

I hope CoolHotNot takes off for two reasons:

  1. because I’d love to have buying recommendations from people I know, and
  2. because I’m Dave’s Mom.
Arlene Bascom
