Two Year Blog Anniversary Olympic Giveaway! Day 1


It’s that time again folks! Last year, we had a massive $2000 One Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway to celebrate this blog’s one year anniversary. I started this blog in the fall of 2007, so technically the two year anniversary should’ve taken place in the Fall of 2009!

Normally our blog anniversary giveaway takes place in mid to late January. I decided to push the date back to coincide with the 2010 Winter Olympics! Why not add some extra oomph to the fun here already?!

Either way, it’s going to be a big bonus for all you loyal readers out there–especially those who have been reading since this blog’s beginnings. I can’t thank you enough for supporting the site! I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way. Let’s take some time out and give away some awesome prizes!

A big thanks goes out to the following sponsors for these prizes:

Total prize value: Just under $2200! That’s right, we topped last year’s prize total!


Day 1 Giveaway: 8GB iPod Touch + 10 x WhatsApp Promo Codes

The creators of WhatsApp have generously sponsored an 8GB iPod Touch and 10 x WhatsApp promo codes! If you haven’t read our review of WhatsApp already, it’s one of my all time favourite iPhone apps. The comparisons of WhatsApp as the Blackberry Messenger equivalent are just wrong–this app absolutely destroys Blackberry Messenger.

WhatsApp enables iPhone and iPod Touch users to send messages, pictures, videos, audio notes, and GPS location to each other for FREE. Say good bye to those expensive SMS charges from Rogers/Telus/Bell. Thanks to Push Notifications you get every single message, plus the speed of sending messages is equivalent to chatting via IM. It’s that awesome!

You can now get your chance to win a this app for FREE (it’s $0.99 in the App Store) PLUS the following custom engraved 8GB iPod Touch:

How to Enter:

1. Follow us on

2. Send out the following tweet on twitter (make sure the #iicday1 hashtag is included!):

    Weird, the URL gives me a 404 error.

    I sent out the msg on Twitter but got the 404 when clicking on the link.

    Just FYI.
