Here’s one for your Friday: Email service Peek is offering a one-time fee for a lifetime of access.
Peek is a pocket-sized device that connects you instantly to email. It doesn’t have web service or phone capabilities. We don’t even think the thing has a tip calculator.
Sure, all of this sounds like fun for someone that does not like to multitask. However, the $20 a month to access it seems a bit steep, considering the lack of features.
Apparently, the folks at Peek might be realizing this, so they are offering a one-day sale of the unit for $299.95. While even that sounds a little high, that one-time charge will give you data for the life of the device. Still, if and when the company goes back to its old business model, we have to wonder how much “life” you will actually get.
The Peek device typically costs $99, with another $20 a month for access to unlimited text and email.
