Help WebOSRoundup and Win a Pre3 0

Help WebOSRoundup and Win a Pre3

My good friends at WebOSRoundup, and Senior Editor Rich Dunbar is running a fund raiser at their site. But their fundraiser has an added perk. One person will, in the end, win a Pre3. The Pre3 was HP’s 3rd generation mobile phone using the WebOS software. It was expected to be released over a month ago, but HP discontinued the device along with the TouchPad. Therefore, the Pre3 only got released in the UK. How to win a Pre3 Simply go to the website (http://swag.webosroundup.com/) and buy a ticket. The more tickets you buy, the less the tickets cost and you will have more entries. The contest ends on October 22nd and winner drawn on the 23rd.

Geekazine Entries, Winner: Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt was a great 5 day contest, with one winner becoming victorious over all others. The contest was part of a 25 day contest through Lenovo. On April 29th, I opened up my contest. The tasks were simple – record a bumper that you are watching Geekazine, then tweet about it. Several people entered. Below are all the bumpers that were created. Check out the South Park version, the “I’m on a horse” version and some other great ones. Ultimately, I drew a winner using Random.org. From the list of winners, Brenda took home the prize of the Lenovo M90z. Thanks to everyone that entered. Here is your bumper!

I’ve been following GeekMommy on Plurk for a while. The site is a Blog chuck full of information. So when GeekMommy decided to run a contest, I thought it would be a good idea to help her along. Let her know of a good Vlog and you might just walk away with a Flip Ultra video camera. I know I will. It promotes so much by doing this – GeekMommy, the Vlog you watch and of course, you. So check out Geekmommy. Help her out and you might just have something that will let you start your own Vlog.

Is my website worth it? 2

Is my website worth it?

“103,288,431 websites with nothing on…” It’s the Bruce Springsteen song with a different twist. Of course when Bruce performed that song in 1992, the general populous wasn’t on the internet. I would make a guess that the majority didn’t even know what the internet was. Of course that all has changed. We use the internet everyday to buy, sell, inform, rant, rave, rate and surf. The number at the beginning of this article is the amount of websites that are active on the internet today. Over half a million were registered today while 338 million were deleted and about 350 thousand either expired or were transferred (stats from Domaintools.com). While the average person surfs about 5-20 websites in a sitting, where do they go? Better yet, will they ever see your site and for how long?

Small Crisis Averted – iPod / Zune Giveaway status

Today I was working on the site and the delete button jumped up and bit me! OW! We had a small issue, and I had to restore the backup database. There were a couple tables that were restored from the weekly backup. There should be no data loss, but if you signed up for the site this week, you may have to do it again. Speaking of signups – Some have been asking about the iPod – Zune Contest info. According to the rules I set up (found on the Giveaway Rules Page) I will be choosing a winner today. I will email that user and they will have 7 days to respond. Once a winner is acknowledged, I will post the results. NEWay, thanks for being a part of the site and participating in the contest. I have taken your information to heart and will be using...
