Funny you should mention TeleBit. I got this really really bad, no,
horrible piece of snail mail from them offering me $50.00 if I trade in my
WorldBlazer for their new 33.6 modum. The horrible part is it was zeroxed
on a machine running out of toner, on colored paper, with little clip art
images like from some PC Paintbrush type of thing.

Boy, it's sad to see how far these guys have fallen.


p.s. I gave my WorldBlazer away since it wasn't worth selling.
