Infomercial Smackdown: MagicJack Talks Trash About NetTalk

MagicJack inventor Dan Borislow is pissed. And who can blame him? After all, he’s made a fortune selling a plastic dongle that lets you make calls over the Internet for $20 a year, and now he has to deal with upstart competitors like NetTalk, which is offering unlimited lifetime calling for $99.

What does Borislow have to say about NetTalk? In a recent interview, he told Laptop magazine:

It’s a piece of shit. It has static. The call quality is pathetic. There’s no phone numbers available, and it’s run by a bunch of fly-by-nights with no assets. They’ll be bankrupt soon. We’re a real company with the best network and best software.

Not surprisingly, NetTalk founder Anastasios “Takis” Kyriakides, has responded. Unfortunately, he doesn’t rise to Borislow’s challenge, and basically says that his company is great, his executive team is experienced and his product is a “is a best-of-all-worlds communication device.”

Come on, Takis! We know you’re just itching to get back at Borislow. You can at least call him a poopy-head or something. Just speak the words into your Nexus One, and text it out to him, uncensored.
