Â Update: Winner is announced!
It came out less than 72 hours ago, and the world is going crazy about it. Yeah, we’re talking about the Apple iPhone (aptly dubbed the ‘jesusphone’). We suspect a portion of our readers already are working to get one soon [if they haven’t already], but we’ve got something for the other lot still in the ‘iWant’ stages.
Starting from today (July 3rd, 2007) through till the 5th of next month (August 5th, 2007), we’ll have our eyes peeled closely to the comments section of our blog posts (NOT ON THIS POST!). At the end of the month, we’ll decide on the best, most insightful, actively participating commenter and mail him or her a glorious, one and true, still in the box, Apple iPhone (or equivalent tech gadget in case of a non-U.S. participant). Simply put, you can enter just by leaving comments. Easy, right?
- Try out the web services/apps we write about and tell us what you think of them. Heck, even write your own review.
- If we’ve written about a news item (Microsoft acquires Google acquires Apple), we want your thoughts on what this will mean for the future.
- We occasionally post lists and roundups on a bunch of Web 2.0 services (example), and we’d love to hear your favorites/picks out of them.
- Lastly, to state the obvious: keep checking the site everday, keep your signature commenter-name/e-mail consistent, and remember — it’s quality over quantity!
Of course, we know very few of you will have the time to comment, comment, comment, so we’ll also give a random blogger $50 via PayPal for spreading the word about the contest (that is, linking to this post), which we hope will account for a good 1/12th of an iPhone.
The winner will be announced on the 15th August, 2007, and we’ll hopefully have an iPhone shipped to the winner by the 20th. So, comment away!
