The MyPadMedia Saga: Being Smart With Your Money
"It sounds great..."Unlimited books and comics for your iPad!" But what is MyPadMedia? Well, it is a site that promises the holy grail to readers: pay them $50 ONCE, and the floodgates open for unlimited books. What books? Well, you need to pay to play, my friends. There's a testimonial that claims to have read "the whole twilight series", but if you want more you need to pony up some serious dough, sight unseen. From all appearances, it is a huge scam."
Talk about a crazy story! Here's where it started (from which I've pulled the quote above). Then the guys behind MyPadMedia got a little upset, and here's the story about that. And the final (so far) evolution of this story can be found here. The moral of this story? If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Buy your content from legitimate sources, and you'll know that your dollars are going toward the creative person who created that content - you're supporting their work. Turning to shady Web sites who promise you the world for a small fee isn't the way to go...good job Judie and Gear Diary team for standing up to these guys!
