Mikradle Evolution X tops the charts for first day sales!
I just noticed this post - that strip - I'm on the floor rolling! I'm printing it out and putting it on my office door. Can't wait to show it to my wife, truer words were never spoken! :biggrin:
Thanks for the morning perk! I think I'll also make it my screensaver for the month!
MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X Series
Meanwhile - guys, thanks loads for the orders! Last night was the highest "intro" sales numbers I've experienced to date! I'm swamped! How can so many of you have gotten this Droid X? Everyone around here has been sold out and still waiting for more! Geez, when the Incredible came out I was flabbergasted at the initial (and subsequent) flood of orders coming in, and I remember thinking the same thing - first the Droid I, then the Incredible and now the X. Doesn't anyone wait for their "new every two" like me? I'm ready to get the X myself (as soon as it gets back in stock), but now with news of the II coming out in two weeks, do I wait? Sigh..
But anyway - thanks so much for all the orders placed last night and through this morning. You've all put me onto double shifts for the next two weeks! Not complaining, and I did expect this kind of overwhelming numbers since so many have been PM'ing and e-mailing me the last few weeks. I've just finished shipping out a ton of standard EVOLUTION orders, and now it looks like the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X Series is going to crush those numbers. Wow!
I'd also like to thank my good friend Jack (a forum member here), who was kind enough to lend me a dummy for sizing purposes and photo sessions, as well as the use of his own personal Droid X for magnet location. The guy is tops in my book! He's already rooted his Droid X and is now waiting for one of our astute hackers to produce a ROM for this, which I understand will be quite a feat! But I'd like to let all know that Jack has earned himself the first comped MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X Series (in walnut), and as in the past I'll be sending out several more, as well as donating to several contests later this month. Jack is a sales rep for wireless phones, and he is a wiz! He also has no match for video games - he represented Direct TV on a team sent to California where they crushed the competition in a video game contest, winning $40,000.00 (team total) for their efforts. I've seen this guy's fingers move on his Droid X, and believe me - they are just a blur when in motion! For a "big finger" guy like myself - I'm amazed at how some people can text quicker than I can even speak the words! I'm envious!
Also - as I did last month, I will be donating $1.00 from the sale of every MIKRADLE sold this month to Breast Cancer Research. This cause has struck very close to home as my sister has been diagnosed and is undergoing treatment right now (many of you are already aware of this). If any would like to also match that dollar donation, just add it to your payment and I'll send it in along with my donation at the end of the month. I will also send each a receipt to that effect. For those with interest - here is the site representing my donations: BCRF :: providing critical funding for innovative clinical and genetic research I researched before donating and this particular foundation is tops in the world for research. Over 90% of all donations go straight to research grants and awareness programs - that's good in my book for sure! If you'd like - you can just visit the site and click on "donate now" to make a credit card donation. I would appreciate all to check out this website - we all have to do what we can to put an end to this terrible disease. Thanks again! mikey
$$$ sent !!! Thanks Mikey !! :icon_ lala:
do you have any plans on creating an adjustable cradle? i plan on using my phone as a clock and am unsure of the screen angle and visibility. looking forward to some real pics!!!
Hi and thanks for the interest! For stock cradles, I have no plans for an adjustable viewing angle, but the future may have that in store...
Meanwhile, I do fabricate custom cradles, usually 1-2 per day. Different colors, angles (fixed), inlay choices, sizes, wood species etc. I would happily quote you building a customized cradle with a variable viewing angle. E-mail me and I can give you some idea of what can be done. Send to: email@example.com
I can say that with now over 1,500 of these sold, I've only had a couple buyers inquire about a different angle, therefore I'd say this one seems to be the best compromise of a desk to a night table. I actually polled this question months ago, and the results came back 88% positive on the existing angle, and others with varying opinions - some more laid down while others wanted a more vertical position. For a desk the present angle is ideal. Night tables vary as bed heights vs night table height are all over the place. Best thing is to find what angle works for the location you will be using this, forward that to me and voila! I will supply that exact viewing angle to you! This I've done for at least three dozen or more buyers. That is much more economical than producing a variable angle, which my research to date puts a selling price too high for the average user.
Thanks again - mikey
Mike - wouldn't you much prefer Giants colors! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana:
Actually, I can and do custom colors and can produce an EVOLUTION X in your Jets green! Did you know I've done a ton of work for Mr. and Mrs. Leon Hess (he has passed on now, but owned the Jets for many years)? One of my favorite clients! I did a ton of custom built-in furniture for them both down here on their home on the Jersey Shore as well as their brownstone in Manhattan. Lovely couple! Perhaps I could deliver your customized Jets cradle on the back of one of my collectible Hess trucks?
Seriously, perhaps you want me to customize the one you purchased? E-mail me if you do, we can certainly come up with something! But are you sure you'd rather switch over to the Giants? Guess you know who my team is.. mikey
Do you have any pictures yet?
I believe when he says tomorrow, or a day, he means a week or two. :icon_eek:
Geez, is my rep getting that bad?
I've been so busy taking orders I've had no time to work on the photos. But I will get them up by Saturday, I promise! I have to say, photos don't seem to slow the orders coming in though! I ask again, how did you all get your hands on these Droid X's? I'm being told by my company stores here that there's a 4 week wait for another shipment! Wow! Did Motorola just come up that short with their estimate (think MIKRADLE with their intro supply of the EVOLUTION X Series)! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana:
Okay, gotta go. For all those who have placed orders and not yet received e-mail confirmation - you will have that before midnight tomorrow. FYI, I've received no less than 740 e-mails on this new model in the last 3 days.. I'm thinking it's time to hire a secretary? Yikes!
Seriously - you are a great bunch and I appreciate all your candor and humor! mikey
Mike, I got your e-mail. We will go as planned, shipping out your black to begin with. Meanwhile, as soon as I get this initial bunch of orders completed, I'll work up a Jet's Model with logo for you. Don't worry about price - I'll e-mail you on that.. I think the logo should not be placed on the back - there it is out of sight, no good there. Best is on the sides - always visible whether the phone is cradled or not! Whichever - we'll work this out - I've very enthusiastic about a "football" series. So, whatever we do for the Jets model (all one color - with logo placement) will follow suit for the rest of the teams. How about a Cowboys EVOLUTION X Series with a Cheerleader on each side? :icon_ banana::icon_ banana: Remember, the skies the limit (well, maybe the bucks).. mikey
haha, not at all! I'm just giving you a hard time.
I like the sound of this dock, but I want to see pictures... hopefully before the member pricing goes up.
