For the last eternity, Bossy has been test driving a new mobile email device called Peek, and when Bossy says she has been test driving it, she really means her daughter:
Here’s the thing: Bossy’s daughter has been begging for a cell phone since 1863, and she’s all, “What if there’s an emergency and my two-hundred sixth-grade friends standing inches away holding cell phones aren’t able to lend me theirs?”
But Bossy is having none of it, because that’s why gah invented two-hundred sixth-grade friends with parents wealthier and nicer than Bossy.
Then along came Peek.
Bossy was intrigued with the idea of the Peek, since it allows you to send and receive emails wherever you happen to be, and this suits Bossy perfectly due to a little thing she likes to call Phone Phobia, where likes to call equals she most definitely does not like to call.
So Bossy used her Peek for a while, but she discovered one big issue with a mobile device: you sort of need to be mobile. And since Bossy mostly works at home, the thing was collecting some dust.
So Bossy handed the Peek off to her daughter one morning and told her to email if she found herself staying late after school. And Bossy’s daughter has been using it ever since.
Bossy likes this alternative to the cell phone, especially for kids, because it allows connectivity without the distraction of cell phone rings and cell phone cameras and cell phones. And depending on your cell phone plan, the Peek is usually less expensive and offers unlimited emailing and instant texting.
Peek even offers a website to help you calculate the savings compared to other email carriers.
Which is why Bossy was happy when her new friend Peek offered to give one Bossy reader a Peek device and a three-month paid trial. Just leave a comment below, one per person please.
Bossy will announce the winner tomorrow. And good luck!
