Friday, July 6th, 2007

Stephen Fung had decided to give 3 games to the BC Children’s Hospital; so that the kids staying there have something fun to do. He’s giving them Fifa 07, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 and NBA Live 07 (non-violent games ๐Ÿ˜› ).

But, wait, there’s more! He has decided to also give away a copy of NBA Live 07 to a random person who comments. You get 1 entry for a comment on the post, and you can get an extra entry for Blogging about the post. Also, for every unique comment, he is going to donate 1 dollar (Canadian, obviously ๐Ÿ˜› ) to a charity of a random commenter’s choice, up to $100. But, wait, it gets even better. BlueFur and Newport Business Media are going to match that donation, dollar for dollar! That’s a possible donation of $300!

So, for simply taking 30 seconds (or less) of your time to comment, you are getting a chance to win a computer games and you’ll be giving $3 to a good cause.

Ms. Danielle’s Giving Away a Microsoft Zune

Friday, June 8th, 2007

Ms. Danielle is giving away a 30 GigaByte Microsoft Zune! Her very pink blog site is fairly new (newer than my Blog) and she talks about a variety of topics.

If you remember (or, if you read this Blog back then ๐Ÿ˜› ), I entered a similar contest over at John Chow’s Blog. Well, it’s the same Zune! Ms. Danielle won John’s contest and decided it to “contest-it-off” on her Blog. In fact, John himself won the Zune. Quite a cycle that’s going on with this Zune!

The Zune in question is brown and is the 30GB model. If you’ve never heard of the Zune (have you been living under that rock again? ๐Ÿ˜› ), it’s a Music/Video player that has WI-Fi built-in which allows you to share songs with friends thatย also have a Zune (only for 3 days or 3 listens, whichever comes first). It’s a competitor to the iPod. It retails for about $250 USD.

It’d be pretty sweet to win, since you can’t buy Zune’s in Canada, yet…

Okay, I promise, the next post I Publish on this Blog will not be a Contest Entry. ๐Ÿ˜›

Win a USB TV Tuner at Beyond the Rhetoric

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Currently, you can win a USB TV Tuner over at Michael Kwan’s Blog, “Beyond the Rhetoric”.ย  He’s giving you a chance to get up to 5 entries into the contest (or is it 4… hmm…). All of which are fairly simple. You can read the specifics on the Post.

The USB TV Tuner is from ADSTech and is worth about $80 USD. It has time-shifting and PVR capabilities. It even allows you to record TV Shows to a CD or DVD. This thing will plug into an empty USB port and either using a TV antenna or connecting a TV cable to it you’ll be able to watch (and record!) TV on your computer! No special video card required! You can see the product page for it here. This is definitely a well worth entering into contest!

If you’ve never heard of Michael Kwan before, he’s a freelance writer. He also guest posts over at John Chow’s Blog and the BlueFur Blog. So, chances are, if you read any of those 2 Blogs, you’ve heard of him.

His Blog looks pretty interesting, but I’m not the biggest fan of the theme… Grey,ย  white and redish-purple just don’t go together all that well. It needs some more colour in it.

So, this is my second entry, favouriting his Blog on Technorati was my first, and the following screenshot, proving that I’m subscribed to his Blog, will by my third entry:

I'm Subscribed to Beyond the Rhetoric

Heck, maybe I’ll even go for a fourth entry by going for the Top Commentators spot for June! Maybe… ๐Ÿ˜€
