Doesn’t look like a dip was caused by the backlash of Rush supporters, but pulling their sponsorship was a dumb move that did not help their company.

Over priced if it is over a penny. Buy a walmart computer and back up your files to it, save a ton.

I got an e-mail from them telling me they are going to offer FREE external hard drive back-up. I told them where to go. That they got their last dime from me, even if they should apologize to RUSH.

Advertising on Rush’s program was the only thing that gave Carbonite any credibility anyway.

Actually, go to my.yahoo and look at the five day chart. They started going south in afternoon trading yesterday and are now down over 5% today. The timing is very interesting.

Looks like they weren’t doing to good anyway. Maybe their decision to jump on the anti-Rush bandwagon was the last desperate attempt of a dying company to stir up some buzz. They figure we can’t do worse than we are, anything that shakes things up could only help.

Here’s an article from when their IPO came out:

http://blogs.reuters.com/small-business/2011/08/18/a-look-into-carbonites-ipo/

The money quote:

“Carbonite spends as much as $55 to land customers, who spend just $59 annually to backup their PC’s documents, pictures, videos and other precious data. He justified the high acquisition cost by pointing to Carbonite’s own research that shows once converted, their customers stick with them – on average – for 5 years”

If people don’t stick with them, it will be a quick fall.

It is very perplexing that they stuck a finger in the eye of current customers, to satisfy allegedly prospective customers.

I predict that, a year from now, they will be either gone, or absorbed by another company.

I just switched from Allstate. I was a customer since 1981. My semiannual car insurance went from ~$1,250 to ~$450, and for slightly more coverage.

What data do you have to support "it doesn't "look like?"

The data I'm looking at shows a precipitous (10%) drop immediately after the controversy began. As it stands now, their stock is not only trading at its lowest point in 52 weeks, but at it's lowest point EVER.

Pretty convincing if you ask me.

Maybe RUSH just needs to qualify the sponsors.

NO LIBERAL DEMOCRAT BACKERS NEED APPLY.

If he were to do that, they would stampede him with the "RIGHT to ADVERTISE".

Carbonite CEO David Friend is "General Partner" of an investment group called "Orchid Partners" in Boston, Massachusetts, the venture capital firm behind… Carbonite.

Mr Friend is a major contributor to MoveOn.org, America Coming Together and Democracy for America, all three are George Soros funded groups, the latter set up by Howard Dean. He also supported Texans for Truth that was set up by MoveOn.org spin-off Drive Democracy.org in 2004. Their purpose was to challenge then-President Bush's service in the Texas National Guard, the stunt for which CBS fired Dan Rather after documents were discovered to have been forged.
