Amazon Prime is getting an amazingly awesome upgrade today!

Total WIN for Amazon Prime customers today (as if it wasn't already the best deal around). I love AP on my Logitech Revue and also in any browser and the free Kindle rentals and the music and the movies and TV and... and... and...

Wow... maybe they'll take over Netflix's library and we will all be AP users and member and not pay any 2 day shipping fees ever again! I'm so turning into an Amazon fanboy. Bottom line is, they are doing things right at Amazon and Mr. Bezos deserves the credit. Good job Amazon team, in all aspects... AP, Music, shipping, shopping, etc. 

Millions have already joined Amazon Prime...

Oink app shutting down make me a #SadPanda

Well, I sure didn't expect this. I have used Oink since day 1 that I heard about it. I have discovered so many awesome items and fun joints because of it. Then, in the blink of an eye, it's gone. Damn. This stinks. I was hoping this would replace Yelp's system, since their mobile app doesn't operate as smoothly as Oink does/did. The simplicity of it gave it the ease of use that similar apps lacked. Oh well, thanks for the fun times Oink app, I will miss your superior usability and functionality!




We started Milk Inc. (the company behind Oink) to rapidly build and test out new ideas. Oink was our first test and, in preparing to move onto the next project, we've decided to shut it down to help focus our efforts.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined and contributed to Oink. You have been the heart of Oink. We are extremely grateful for all of your effort finding and rating the best things in the places around you. We've discovered thousands of awesome pizzas, pastas, coffees, teas... and roller coasters, zoo exhibits, paintings, sculptures, vistas... and sodas, salads, sliders, soups... and so much more.

So long and thanks for all the Oinks! More news from us soon,

The Milk Team
