Thursday, July 12th, 2007

Zac Johnson went to Affiliate Summit and, well, he took advantage of the free stuff companies give out there. It almost seems like he stole it. 😛

He’s had to bring it all home in another bag. 😛

What’s even better, is he’s giving it away!

Mr. Gary Lee’s Giving Away an iPhone

Monday, July 9th, 2007

iPhoneMr. Gary Lee, who does something like internet marketing, is giving away a free 8GB iPhone!

He also has a golf equipment site and a free online coupon site.

You get 1 entry if you have a PageRank of 1-3, and 2 entries if you have a PageRank of 4 or more. Better yet (possibly worse yet, for some people), he’s going to take your PageRank after the update that should be coming sometime this month. I sure hope my PageRank won’t go down, I’m right at 2 entries right now. 😉

Of course, I live in Canada, so the iPhone isn’t going to do me much good, right? Wrong! Since the iPhone is coming to Canada through Rogers, I think I’d be able to use it at Rogers. Since Rogers and AT&T run the same technology and are almost the same company. In fact, if you go on a Blackberry here, and go to Options > Advanced > Host Routing Table it’ll say “Rogers/AT&T”. So, there’s a good chance that it would work on Rogers (that is the Network you would roam on, if you’re from the US and you’re using your AT&T phone here). And if not, the bragging rights of owning an iPhone are still valid. 😛

Anyways, this is my entry, and, well, ya…
