Bob,

It sounds like your doing the right thing. My point at the time was based on internet sales and how products are found. People tend to search in keywords such as “laptop accessoriesâ€

Yep . . . I had a couple of other possible names but they were all in use.

Hi Headjerk

Why not call it what it is:

PC Safe or Safety Connector - PCSC or PCS Connector 8) :lol:

Lap-Top Safe or Safety Connector - LTSC or LTS Connector 8) :lol:

LTPC Safety Connector 8) :lol:

My two cents worth & I have not seen that commercial again yet.

When I do I'll post the Information.

Not bad, but PC Safe has been taken/used/trademarked I believe.

I like Laptop Safety connector... Thanks!! I'll be trying some private labels using that and see what the response is.

PROGRESS REPORT ...

I know it's been a while and I've got plenty of excuses for not doing this sooner but I'm not 'going there'.

Let's see where to start ... On the retail front our product is in Micro Center and FRY's electronics stores and a number of online eCommerce sites but with the 'current economic realities' sales aren't anything to write home about.

On the industrial side however things are very different ...

Cummins Inc (http://tinyurl.com/2ahcpu6) (the Diesel Engine company) is our latest customer. And in just 30 days we have supplied them with thousands of JerkStopper LapTop Safety kits, not to mention individual components. Initially, because we are such a small (micro) company the folks at Cummins decided to have one of their IT suppliers take us on as a vendor. The need at Cummins for our product was so great that it took less than 48 hours for MoreDirect (http://tinyurl.com/22q2jd6) to sign us up and place initial pipeline fill orders. Good news for us in that it in addition to the huge orders it gives us even more exposure in the IT world.

And to top it off, Cummins Inc. got back with me last week and said they had decided that 'for their international business' (which accounts for 62% of their revenues) they would be buying directly from us as long as we (the company)could ship worldwide.

My answer of course was a resounding Hell Yes we can do that.

And of course now it opens the door to go to other Diesel engine manufactures and ask them what Cummins knows that they don't?

In addition, we've been building some 'specialty units' for the Photography industry (http://tinyurl.com/2bffjz2) that have been well received and even had time to redesign the Corporate (Damage Control Products) website (http://dcp.jerkstopper.com/)

So ... It's been a slow build up, what with the economy being in such 'great shape' and our 'retail' sales have been steady but not awe inspiring but it seems that we have (finally) found our way into 'big(er) business' via a niche that I've always know existed.

We (the company) did turn down some investors last year, mostly because 'loss of control and/or direction of the company' issues.

I wouldn't have minded having the 'funding' to grow the company quicker but not at the expense of not being able to control the future direction of the company.

Slowly but surely ....
