    So what's the deal with the offermatic?:)

    It can't be free - free account is nothing new in web services. I wonder how much can you really save on those deals and who's getting charged for the transactions made through offermatic - client or a store?:))

      Iit's pretty similar to deals and coupon sites. The difference is that it finds the relevant deals for you.

    why not use real screen shots of each website, rather than recycling the same ones time after time? I keep having deja vu seeing the beatles on itune picture nearly every day on coolwebsites..

    just whinging.. love these posts otherwise.

      we are not really recycling the same snapshot over and over again. The snapshots or thumbnails for these posts are taken automatically. Whatever is the front page of the respective domain, in this case the iTunes homepage, becomes the thumbnail for the respective item in the article.

      Unfortunately, the system always reverses to the domain and can not take a snapshot of the actual download URL. This is something we clearly could improve. However, right now this is not a priority, we are working on more exciting projects for our readers. :)

        That should be no longer an issue. We have upgraded our thumbnail generator few days ago and now able to grab screenshots even from internal pages :)
