At camelcamelcamel, we use Olivaw to download our affiliate reports every morning, which we then import into our database. This seemed useful to all affiliates, so I’ve open-sourced the code.
Thanks to a few 1k+ days, we managed to pull this off well before the self-imposed deadline on 2012-12-31. Congrats, team Camel!
10,000 miles in about a year, not bad.
(It was at 32k by the end of the trip.)
Not even two months since we hit 40k and already we’re up to 50k! This is the result of an average ~180 signups/day over the last 50 days, and bodes well for 2012.
Congratulations Ben, ****, and Nithya! Our efforts are paying off.
Here’s a list of stuff it seems like Siri, the voice interface on Apple’s iOS 5, should be able to do but can’t as of 2011-10-24.
- “Reboot my phone” — Fails to do anything; perhaps rebooting isn’t as common here as it is with Android.
- “Call X on Skype” — Tries to call using the phone app, not Skype.
I’m sure I’ll have some more things to add here eventually.
It’s interesting that, after Paul Graham rejected camelcamelcamel’s Y Combinator application based on our desire to keep our day jobs (which we later quit), YC funded shopobot (a site that provides the same functionality as C3.) Even more interesting is that, just over a year after we pitched to Google Ventures, shopobot received funding from them.
*Tries not to be a sore loser.*
Update: It turns out that YC didn’t fund shopobot, but actually chose not to invest after their in-person pitch. My mistake!
