What's new in version 2.1.1
• Just as I suspected, the release notes provided by the developers were indecipherable. I’ve spared you that boredom.

• TalkTo v2.1.1 now recognizes Crimea as Russian. Thanks to the preparedness of our crack development team, this was done in only a few weeks and with relatively little disruption. They tell me we are also now prepared should the US choose to cut ties with Key West.

• TalkTo v2.1.1 now recognizes Dr. Dre as wealthier than Jay Z and Diddy. It beats me how he did it, I guess graduate school really does pay off.

• In TalkTo v2.1.1 all messages sent to the L.A. / Seattle Clippers will go directly to Steve Ballmer’s Windows Phone. In related news, we finally have a user for our Windows Phone app. So exciting!

• TalkTo v2.1.1 has entirely new What’s New notes.

UPDATE: After the untimely demise of "TalkTo - The Musical", and slow sales of Fast Pass subscriptions, TalkTo is once more looking for a profitable business model. Again, this falls on me, since no one else here seems terribly concerned. I’ve come up with an innovative proposal I hope TalkTo can patent: Advertising INSIDE our What’s New notes. Yes, that just blew your mind. No, I don’t know why no one else thought of it before. Please take a moment to let it soak in.

UPDATE 2: I saw on my school’s career services website that TalkTo is abolishing the unpaid marketing intern position. Apparently I’ve set the bar too high to be replaced. Sorry I had to ruin it for everyone.

UPDATE 3: I know it’s hard to believe, but I’m still waiting on my Head Writer employment offer letter. I just emailed the CEO an ultimatum hinting that June may be my last month with the company. I hate to be so pushy, but my Mom is asking a lot of questions and implying I haven’t been a real TalkTo intern since last summer.

*** YOUR AD HERE ***
TalkTo’s What’s New notes are read by up to a dozen people in Boston, the majority of which are overpaid software developers and their families, and one that’s a CEO. His family doesn’t read these notes unfortunately, but only one of your ad readers will be an unpaid intern. All the rest have disposable income. This is a very attractive market for your message! Email us now for rates and details.

You can’t afford to miss this opportunity, and your competitors certainly won’t. Spots are going quickly! Hold on a moment, I have to answer this email inquiry from your competitor… OK. I’m back now. As I was saying, don’t delay, act now!
