Quotes

"We are building an Amazon for services. There is not a go-to solution or company for you, as a customer, to solve all of your local services needs, and that is what we are aspiring to build" he said. "That has never existed, and its a huge change."
...You’ll still see the same Mimi platform you’re used to, and we’ll continue to listen to your feedback and grow in new ways," he wrote. "GoDaddy appreciates the delightfulness of Mad Mimi, and we appreciate how many more small businesses we’ll be able to help through merging with GoDaddy. We’re absolutely committed to providing the same awesome experience, same great support, for years to come."
...to how the Wall Street Journal describes the new app, it will have the same "self-destruct" feature that has become synonymous with Snapchat: "The product would let users read daily editions of publications as well as watch video clips of TV shows or movies by holding down a finger on the screen, like they do with photos and other messages on the app before disappearing."
"Additionally, scaling the platform with more integrations like Square and Xero give Stitch Labs the ability to market to much larger companies within the $2 to $20 million profit margin. Finally, Stitch Labs has about 22 employees and they are always looking for more! They will be adding specifically to the engineering and marketing teams."
