Guess That Product Answers

In my last blog I posted the first paragraph from three vendor news releases that failed to tell me much about the product they were selling. Here are the answers:

  • The FTP tutorial in my first example was the introduction for a COM control (i.e. not for .NET, though you wouldn't discover that until the fifth paragraph) for uploading and downloading files.
  • The news release that began by telling me about the product's internals turned out to be doing something with extracting information from and then displaying PDF documents.
  • The product sold by the company that was advertising itself: A POP3 client control. I could actually use a good e-mail control, but the company was too busy selling itself to tell me that they had one.
