1. What is IGotIGotNewsForYou?
IGotNewsForYou is a web-based system that allows you to send personalized, online newspaper-styled pages to friends, family, coworkers, or anyone else on the face of the planet. Think e-cards, but better. The content is satirical in nature, funny, witty and on occasion, downright hysterical. The personalization puts the recipient and others (you, significant other, best friend) into the stories. The more you know about the recipient, the more personalized it will be. Pages are generated on-the-fly and then you can send the recipient an email through our website so they can access the URL of their page. You can also have pages printed by us, making them suitable for framing or lamination.
2. Why would I spend money here?
You don't have to! IGotNewsForYou is funny and free (except for a poster; paper and ink cost money). Oh, and it's ultra-easy to use too. You can create a page in a few minutes and send it off to anyone at no cost. Compare that to a traditional card at four or five bucks, and at IGotNewsForYou you don't have to sit and stare at aisles of paper cards for hours on end to find the perfect one. You'll always be able to find free options online for things like e-cards, but they're typically generic and boring. And at most, you can put the recipient's name into the e-card. With IGotNewsForYou you can personalize the content a lot more than that.
3. Is this site secure?
Absolutely. Security is always top-of-mind for us, and we've made sure things are extremely secure. We use one of the world's top providers of authentication and electronic payment processing (PayPal). When it's time to pay, you'll be directed to their site where security is paramount.
4. How much does it cost?
The basic cost for sending a page online is $0, nil, nothing. That lets the recipient view the page (and you can view it too). If you want a page printed it costs USD $9.95. The page size is 14"x17". It looks great for framing or lamination. Shipping is extra. All prices on the site, whether indicated as such or not, are in USD.
5. Is it really funny?
Damn straight it's funny. Of course, funny is in the eye of the beholder, but we've got a range of styles and a host of options that should cover almost every basis. If you like dry, witty humor, we've got that. If you like raunchy, knock-your-knickers off humor, we've got that too. And once you see the personalization within the content, it makes things even funnier.
7. Who started IGotNewsForYou?
IGotNewsForYou was dreamed up by its founder, Mike Yoskovitz. He had been thinking about it for years, and finally after being let go from his cushy day job he decided to take a real stab at it. Joining forces with Mr. Yoskovitz are Mr. Yoskovitz, Mr. Yoskovitz and Mr. Pallister. Seriously. Benjamin Yoskovitz (Mike's son) and Allen Yoskovitz (Mike's brother) got onboard to help Mike realize his dream. Neil Pallister nearly peed his pants when he saw an early beta of IGotNewsForYou and since then he's been working tirelessly to make things happen as well.
8. Do you accept submissions for content?
Absolutely! We're always looking for the funniest stories we can find. Writing funny stories in a newspaper-format isn't easy. We do our best to make that happen, but there's lots of talent out there. We encourage people to submit stories through our submission form where you'll also find instructions on what we're looking for.
