“We’re just people, running this company. We’re trying to make great products for people. And so, we have at least the courage of our convictions to say, ‘we don’t think this is part of what makes a great product, so we’re gonna leave it out.’ That’s what a lot of customers pay us to do, is to try to make the best products we can. And if we succeed, they’ll buy them. And if we don’t, they won’t.”
I can’t think of a better way to describe what we’re doing here at Fanzter. Our number one goal is to make awesome things around contexts that people love.
All of us here at Fanzter are huge fans of movies, music, TV series, sports, video games, technology, and other things in pop culture. We want to make products around things we love. I had an iPod when it was a huge brick. I’ve owned every video game console in history, sometimes more than once. I spent a fortune on the iTunes store the day it came out. I’ve used every media center platform that exists. I maintain an Xbox Live subscription, not for playing games online, but for access to the media and online content they provide. And I rarely actually use any of it day to day. But I’ve spent HOURS playing with them all.
For me, its about the experience. I like to just play with these things. I like to study them. To see what is great, and what sucks. More times than not, things suck.
Here at Fanzter we like to think we know what is great, but more importantly, what sucks. Only in knowing what sucks, can you make something great.
There are a lot of contexts out there that people are passionate about. This is where we will be. We know all too well that fans of movies, tv, sports, etc, are not being served, because we ARE these people! So we’re extra motivated to make kick ass things for these fans.
Stick with us, because we have a lot of awesome things planned. We’ve been dabbling in the iPhone world for the last couple of months but will be shifting to some much bigger things soon.
