Technology shouldn't strangle us

After many weeks of unpleasant experiences we finally decided to pull the plug on PayPal payment services. We will refund all PayPal processed orders received in the last 2 weeks, and ask customers to re-submit their payments using Google Checkout or

We are in good company, unfortunately. High volume and being a new player in the PC market apparently is something "state-of-the-art" technology can't deal with. This was very disenchanting for the victims of hurricane Katrina, and now very unpleasant for CherryPal and their customers. Isn't technology supposed to make life easier?

Speaking of technology, green technologies in particular, I got invited to Blogradio's Innovator Radio broadcast today. If you have a minute please listen in.

Last but no least, I attended a CEO gathering at Tesla in Mountain View yesterday. Many "green technologies" CEOs complained about the lost appetite of venture capitalists since the Wall Street meltdown started several weeks ago. Whether we are in a recession or not, we all need to invest in our future, create jobs in growth industries and, of course, safe our planet. If you are interested in our "Invest Green" program or would like to invest in another green technologies companies please check this our:

The C114 is coming Election Day, November 4th

Finally, CherryPals are going to be shipped November 4th, 2008.

We have made some last minute changes, slimmer casing, more local memory (Solid State Drive 8GB), and all for the same low price of US$ 249. The lower memory C100 (4GB SSD) won't be offered anymore.
The very recent economic global crisis painfully reminded us that US politics have global reach, they impact every corner of our world. We also know by now that reducing the pace we pollute our environment takes a gobal effort, why not start with it now?
On Election Day 11/4 CherryPals will get shipped for the first time, we will know who is going to move into the White House and last but not least we will learn very soon thereafter whether or not the United States government will finally take environmental issues more seriously.
Ironically, embracing the green movement and creating new jobs are directly related to each other. Industry analysts have predicted that we here in the United States could create as much as 5 Million new jobs over the next 10 years if our government would provide more aggressive incentives and support to jump-start green technologies companies. Needless to say the global impact in terms of job creation as well as benefits for the environments would be mindboggling!!!
Well, in that regards I do have a questions? Is Obama or McCain more serious about boosting green technologies? Let me know what your thoughts are?

CherryPal's new web site

Since our proxy company went out of business and the web design company demonstrated some strange business ethics we decided to maintain the web site ourselves - our new site might be less fancy but far less costly and easier to maintain and update. Form follows function.
