Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Unified Messaging Systems - the evil fax imperium

Published: Wednesday 2009-11-18.

Dagens IT writes about the Norwegian company Unified Messaging Systems AS who are sending out large amount of fax spam to companies, not only in Norway, but also in Sweden and several other companies. The problem is larger than one might think, the fax at my previous job almost never had any paper left in it after spitting out advertisements all the time, and according to the article several companies have seen it necessary to disable their fax because of this company.

It is sad that companies like this are allowed to exist, and that there are advertisers who pay to use their services.

Jag fick e-postreklam (!) om någon fax som kan skilja på önskade och oönskade utskick och antingen kasta det som verkar vara skräp eller vidareförmedla som e-post om man hellre vill kolla igenom det själv. Tänk dit utvecklingen leder oss, faxmaskiner med inbyggt skräppostfilter.

En annan käck funktion som ett företag som sysslar med massutskick erbjuder sina kunder är SMS. Nej, inte reklam via SMS, det finns ju redan men tack och lov i väldigt begränsad skala. Vad detta företag erbjöd är att alla mottagare av e-posten får en SMS-PÅMINNELSE strax innan om att "snart kommer du få ett spännande erbjudande via e-posten, glöm inte att titta efter det". Av alla onda saker tror jag detta tar priset, ett meddelande i telefonen att du har spam att vänta i e-posten såvida inte ditt filter redan spärrat det.
