A Teaser About our Evil Plans


We've been hard at work on several new ideas here at FASO.

 

While the fruit of our labors is not yet ripe, thought I'd share a little hint as to one of the upcoming releases:

This could be interesting. I don't have an iPhone and not even a smart phone....but I do have an iPod!
I'm waiting...

Ginger, it will work on an ipod - if it's an ipod touch - that's the same as an iphone without the phone (in fact that's what I use to test it).

Interested

What exactly would the app be used for?

It wouldn't be a teaser if I shared that would it?

I'll say this - it would be useful for current FASO customers - not so much for art buyers but more for the artists. The buyers can visit artist's websites directly (which are also mobile enabled).

Pat - I wouldn't buy an iphone or an ipod just to run our app - it's not going to do anything the regular web app doesn't do - it will just make managing certain aspects of the site possible from a mobile device.

On a personal note though - I bought an ipod touch 32G for testing the app and it was money well spent. It was not expensive and is essentially just like an iphone without the phone (you can even turn it into a phone with the right apps while on wifi) and best of all - no monthly bill to att. It's a good deal if you want a good mobile device.

Jan,

Due to the legal issues around accepting credit card payments, that's not a product we could directly offer.

However, there is a cool product to do it. It wouldn't directly link with your faso account, but would let you run the charges and then you could simply mark the pieces sold.

You can learn more about it here:

Clint, I'm glad I check back to this article. Thank you for the link to squared. It looks very good-actually it's what I've been looking for. I'll check into it a bit more.
Many Thanks Clint!

clint:great ideas and format but for an oldtimer ballplayer and self taught artist,could you make participation less onerous and computer dependent.i know we are in an age of rapid transfomation of information but facilitation of o f easier methodology would be well receieved.

I have just finished looking at this month's winners of the Art Contest. I did not enter, but feel compelled to comment on the fact that all your winners save one are male. This may be because all the past contests, 30 of them, only 4 women were judges. I know from long observation that men like one sort of art, and since art has been so heavily weighted to what men like, it will be difficult to see the art produced by women as worthwhile. I think it is time to look at this prejudice and include the work of women if they are still willing to submit to the blatant bias prevalent everywhere, not just here, and begin to actually include women in the art world. Some progress has been made, since the 1947 book "Great Artists of the World" with hundreds of artists, but not one woman. It is time to take another baby step toward equality by having unbrainwashed women judges.
