Win a pair of Empire Strikes Back 3D Promo Cards

Posted in Contests by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2010

The Topps Company is publishing the upcoming Empire Strikes Back 3D Trading Cards to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary. I’m happy to announce that we have a total of 20 Promo cards to give away. These cards are very rare, since they are only sent to distributors/retailers.

Topps wants to show you how nice the 3D effect looks. And believe me, it looks nice. That image does not do them justice at all. The card series will be shipping to stores in May. We are giving away two to each winner.

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2010

An e-mail sent to members of Intel’s Retail Edge promotional program highlight an upcoming MacBook Pro from Apple with a new Core i5 processor. The promotion was included in an e-mail sent to members of the Intel Retail Edge Program. It reads: “January Prize Draw: Win a MacBook Pro. Pass this month’s trainings for 2 chances to win one of 2 MacBook Pro laptops with the accelerated response of an Intel Core i5 processor.”

Right now, the top MacBook Pro has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Last week at CES, Intel formally introduced the new line of processors, which included the new Core i3, i5 and i7 chips. The mobile Core i5 has been considered a likely candidate for a MacBook Pro refresh.

Verizon Motorola Droid promo goes after the iPhoneVerizon has launched a smack-talking offensive against the iPhone, with a new campaign called DroidDoes.com for their upcoming Motorola Droid Android smartphone. The handset, previously known by its codenames of Tao and Sholes, is being promoted as offering everything the iPhone can’t: an open development platform, the ability to run background processes, a flexible open App Store and replaceable batteries, etc. They really do some trash talking. Verizon has even set up a countdown timer showing that the Motorola Droid will arrive on October 30th 2009.

The teaser site starts off with some statements, all using the familiar i-prefix and in an Apple-style font. Stuff like “iDon’t run simultaneous apps”. Then a countdown page, with specs of the upcoming Motorola smartphone.

Beamz Infomercial: Stupidest promo ever

Beamz Infomercial: Stupidest promo ever
Last week we told you about the Beamz Laser Music System, but we had no idea how um…retarded this thing is. I’m still not sure if I watched a comedy sketch or not and I’m not entirely clear on what era I’m living in.

Unless you are a middle-aged metrosexual who loves lounge music, you really aren’t going to want this thing for $600. It makes you look like a cat pawing a ball of yarn. Your money is better spent on video games. The big bald guy seems so desperate to fill the void in his soul with his playing. Probably because he looks like fat bald Vader from Return of the Jedi. The video is below.
