zamzar.com is a file conversion website that I use all the time. However, for some reason, as I attempted (again and again and again) to convert a .flv file to .mov, zamzar dropped the ball. again and again and again. Finally - feeling very frustrated - i tweeted:
JHenryGordon (3:45 pm): anyone know a good .flv file converter? zamzar has been failing me all day.
what happened 15 minutes later really surprised me.
Zamzar (4:00 pm): @JHenryGordon What's wrong? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I didn't even know zamzar was on Twitter! They must have twitter-alerted themselves, the sneaky guys... Talk about brand management.
In honour of zamzar's on-the-ball-ness, I have compiled a Top 10 list (from this article)
