I guess it is not a scam.
Nice looking keyboard too...just a lot a of shortcut keys on the top and it is heavily sponsored by AOL.
just wondering, last time i checked their site, they said something about an obligation to fill out surveys if you accept the rocket board.....either that or installing something on your computer.....can someone clear this?
How long ago did you sign up for it? the first time around (like 6+months ago) or more recently?
05-16-2000, 09:19 PM
I signed up for it more recently. The date was 4/14/00.
As for the software thing I am not really sure...it came with a CD with an AOL trial and maybe some other software...I haven't tried to use it yet so I do not know.

you signed up a month ago? that came real quick.. here's hoping mine doesn't get lost in the mail! lol

Hmmm... I signed up a long time ago and never got mine. Mail man must have it. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

How much was the shipping?
05-17-2000, 01:23 AM
its totally free..(for the first 250,000 people i think) just go to www.rocketboard.com (http://www.rocketboard.com)

Just an FYI on my personal experience. I ordered about 4 weeks ago, and I looked up on my account that the SHIPPING date is 5/29. Man, I mean, I know it's free, but it'll be at least two months by the time I get this mofo. Anyone else have better luck??
05-17-2000, 12:52 PM
where can we find our shipping date? i was not aware...must go see.

Hey, just ordered mine. Figure it'll sit on my board or get reviewed or something. On the up side, their agrement assumes you want to use their service, whatever that is, and doesn't appear to apply to the hardware what so ever. The worst they can do is cancel a service you probably won't use...

i signed up eons ago but no rocketboard...
damn UPS thieves!!!
05-18-2000, 12:07 AM
i just got mine today. not too bad for a free one. you can totally tell its like an aol sponsored keyboard. heh. even got IM keys
05-18-2000, 12:14 AM
I got my rocketboard today too. I ordered it about a month ago, 4/14 to be precise. Works pretty good especially since its free. Can definitely notice the AOL sponsorship. Oh well gotta Rocket away.

Twice I tried to sign up for this damn thing, and twice I got emails telling me they had problems and might not have received my information. Screw 'em. I'll stay loyal to my beat up keyboard...it may not be flashy and cute, but it's here.
05-18-2000, 01:01 AM
i ordered mine on april 15th, and it should be shipped on the 29th of may. I'm sick of waiting for any free crap! I want it all now
05-18-2000, 01:09 AM
Damn they charge for shipping now http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif

its funny you mentioned that it should be coming on the 29th. i saw that today too when my coworker told me he got his yesterday. i ordered before he did but even though it said i was getting mine on the 29th of may i got it in the mail today.
05-18-2000, 02:04 AM
i just signed up a friend for one and it was still free.. it will automatically put in coupon code 'blast1' or something like that..
05-18-2000, 07:06 AM
so it should come anytime between now and june...great.
05-18-2000, 02:03 PM
