Haha! This is way cute. =)

Prezzle (fo'shezzle) does virtual gift wrapping and associated gift interaction.

It's based on the premise that the down side to sending online gift certificates and virtual gifts is the recipient doesn't have something to hold, shake or otherwise bop about =D

Watch the demo. I think they've changed things a bit; everything's on the main page.

You can't slap the recipient for shaking it too hard, but that's coming in the next release.

Right, Dan? XD

Hmmm... I notice in the demo that it would appear to be some sort of flash / activex thing inside an email. I'm not wild about that, especially since it would seem to require the recipient remembering about the gift and going back to that old email. In the demo, the email was sent Feb 27, which is in fact a HUGE amount of gap between then and April 1... in my email life, and even with filters or folders I wouldn't remember the email.

Please tell me that this is some sort of April Fool joke...

Yeah, April 1 was not the best time to launch. =P

I had to crack open IE because I'm not installing Flash in Mozilla.

I didn't have flash in mozilla for the longest time because of ads, but I finally acquiesced once I started using google analytics extensively.

There is, of course, the 'clicktoplay' extension that will block most of the flash download and keep it from playing.

It's neat, but seems sort of ... gimmicky to me.

I saw the "Prezzle (fo'shizzle)," and, after spending much of the day laughing at www.gizoogle.com translations, thought that I was finally going insane...

Haha, what makes you think you're not going insane? How would you know, really? =D
