    I read your article on capsule hotel manufacturers and have tried contacting the company you gave but seem to have no reply. I was wondering, since that article is almost a year old maybe you could update or publish new info on capsule hotel manufacturers. Any help will be very much appreciated.

    Thank you

  11. Bobbie7 says:


    Thanks for asking about my capsule hotel manufacturers answer on Google Answers.

    Unfortunatley, Google Answers has been retired and is no longer accepting new questions or updates on the answers.

    The good news is that former Google Answers researchers have formed a new service called uclue.

  18. Neva says:

    I was wondering if you can point me in the right direction?
    I would like to get 1000 towels with our team name and all the players names on it ?
    I would like to purchase 1000 towels (50 per team) and have our team name maybe a logo (if it’s cost effective) on them.
    I’m trying to find a place I can purchase and have them printed at the same time, or if it is more cost effective purchase the towels one place & send them to another for the printing

    Any help on this will be greatly appreciated

    Hello Bobby7,

    Your research on the number of hospitals in Latin America was very helpful, thank you. In the coming months we will need some research on the health-care field in Latin America and possibly a few countries elsewhere. I would appreciate your getting back to me soon to talk about it.

    Hi Bobby,

    I am a direct response copywriter and found you on google answers. I often need proof to back up claims, etc.
    and it can be quite time consuming. Would love to work with you on an ongoing basis if you’re still doing this
    sort of thing.

  23. Philip Zelinger says:

    Hi Bobbie,

    I have a friend who has asked me how many auto dealers are presently operating in the United States — New and Used possibly broken down by franchise and private used car lots with as much contact information as would be reasonably available. Can you provide a current list given the recent consolidation in the market and with the assumption that you can — how “little” would you have to charge and when could it be completed?

  24. Cathy says:

    Dear Bobbie7,

    I have been attempting to compile data on trade publications within the holistic / natural health industry. Another common term used is integrative medicine. I would like to be able to simply download the info into Excel. Also, I am looking for a database of holistic / natural health practitioners in the United States (and would like to simply download the info into Excel). It looks as if there is no such thing as a trade publication, though there are several consumer publications available (but I have found none that strictly targets the holistic health care professional), and I suspect there is no such thing as a database of practitioners either. Then again, research is not my strong point. Can you help?
