Dotster Found its Dots

As beer companies know, sex sells. Domain registrar Dotster agrees, and recently held a contest to find female spokesmodels. These women are no slouches. One is a former Miss Arizona (yes, this century!), another appeared on a Dunkin' Donuts commercial and a third actually speaks Spanish.

I've gotten numerous press releases about this and they all tell me to check out the Dots at http://www.dotsterdots.com. But this Internet company doesn't operate on Internet time, as the site is still just a placeholder. Maybe the company should take a course in Publicity 101 and have the Web site ready before they blast out a million press releases!
