Last week I had lunch with AppSumo founder Noah Kagan. His service provides combo deals for SAAS web services. The deal space is certainly currently hot – of course those of us deal hunters know it has been hot for a long time.
Today I learned about a similar offering from a variety of popular Swiss startups. Their package deal website is called eKnife and offers premium accounts from Doodle, Memonic and Wuala. They describe the service as the “Swiss Army Knife” of web startups.
From the announcement, “The eKnife stands for Swiss efficiency and shows the leading role of Switzerland as a rising tech hub in Europe. ‘The bundle increases productivity and saves time and stress’, says Dorian Selz, co-founder of Memonic. ‘eKnife was born within four weeks from just an idea to a commercial offer of three successful Swiss online services. Could Swiss efficiency be more evident?’.”
The eKnife bundle includes:
- Wuala 10GB premium account
- Doodle premium account
- Memonic premium account
The total price for the services is CHF94 and the bundle is offered for CHF 59 ($61).
Memonic is online information capturing and organizational service. It allows you to capture pieces of information like maps, routes, photos or text. The capturing process can be completed in a variety of ways including: a smart bookmarklet, an iPhone application, email your documents and/or using copy and paste. Once the content is in the Memonic system you can organize the data in collections and share the content with your friends. An example of a nice collection is Johnny’s iPad collection with shows offsome new technology. Memonic could be considered a competitor to the popular information capturing service Evernote.
The Swiss-based Memonic team is made up of five business and development team members. Memonic has quickly sky rocketed to become a new darling in the Swiss startup scene.
This week, Memonic has launched their business model. For a yearly price of 29 Euros (USD 39) you receive storage of unlimited items & collections and up to 10 GB of storage. For comparison, Evernote charges $45 a year. Neither Memonic nor Evernote charge for file uploads although Evernote has a monthly limit of 500 mb.
Have a look at the Memonic Tour to see if the application could help capture the information you are interested in across the Internet. And you can easily start using the service by creating an account or just anonymously organizing your bits of information.
