For those of you registered in my giveaway, thank you! I really appreciate it.
I’m writing this post because I have to push the deadline back to next Monday. I am on vacation without any wifi (except for this unfortunate person’s house I managed to pick up) and wont be able to do all the tallies just yet… Anyways, thank you for participating, and hang in there!
A Simple Way to Get an Invite
I’ve found a way to get google voice invites! And its really simple, too, if you’re funny enough. Thats right; the Google Voice Team is willing to give you a beta invite personally if you call their hotline (posted on their twitter account) and tell them something funny. Thats it! If they laugh, they’ll send you a beta key. Simple as that! No waiting, no pleading, and no angst. You can get all the fantastic features of Google Voice, like cheap long distance calls, group ringing, visual voicemail, messag recording, and voicemail transcribing. I’m writing up a Google Voice review now… and trust me, this is something you can’t pass up.
Well, Whats the Number?
(408) 72-VOICE. Thats it! Just call it, and leave something funny. Don’t believe me? Here is the original tweet, direct from twitter;
We’re checking our (408) 72-VOICE invite hotline for funny vmail msgs, and sending out more invites next week to a select few!
And there you have it! Start making some serious (-ly funny) phone calls. Good luck!
So that people stop asking me, this giveaway has officially been closed as of July 17th, 2009. I’m so sorry to disappoint anyone. If you want to see who the winners are, check here.
What is Battlefield Heroes?
To compete with the tons and tons of free online first person shooters that have been cranking out, like “FEAR Online,” “Combat Arms,” and “Guns,” EA threw out “Battlefield Heroes” to not only compete, but to appease the throngs of Battlefield fans who were still disgruntled from Battlefield: Bad Company not being released on PC. I, being one of these people, was happy to see that EA had provided some sort of compensation. The game is a cartoon shooter, and is totally free. Its (STILL) in closed beta *sigh* but I was lucky enough to get an invite key earlier on. Regardless, there’s been an update recently, and with it came a coupon for 200 BattleFunds. Nice. Seeing as I don’t really want it, I’m going to give it away, along with an additional one I managed to dig up. Thats right… I’mgettin Read on to find out how to get the coupon! Continue reading
With help from the internet, twitter, and google, I stumbled across 5 promotional codes for Puppy Jumper, a side-scrolling skateboarding game. I’m just going to release them all at once, seeing as some are on other sites as well…
To redeem, go to iTunes, click on the “iTunes Store,” and click “Redeem” on the right-hand side of the page, and enter a code. If you are lucky enough to receive a winning code, post a comment! I’d appreciate it.
Good luck, and get cracking. Also, if you’d like, you can buy the app from the appstore here.
For those who have been interested in trying out Webnotes Pro, which has all the functionality of its free counterpart, but with PDF editing, multicolored highlighting, and priority support, there has never been a better time! For those who don’t know what webnotes is, it is a website that allows users to take notes directly on other websites via a plugin or a bookmarklet. I’ve been in contact with some of the site’s developers via twitter and they gave me a link for 50 people to receive 50% off their premium service.
How can I get the discount?
Its really, really simple. Click here and follow the instructions. Or, sign up for a premium account and enter the promotional code ‘technoheads.’ Not hard, right? If you want to try it out first, sign up for a free account and download the bookmarklet here.
Pricing is normally $10 per month, or $100 per year (You receive 2 months free if you sign up per year). Of course, with a 50% discount, pricing becomes $5 a month, or $50 per year. Its very reasonable, and their free version is equally as useful.
If you missed out on your chance to receive one of my 50 discounts, and you’re currently a student, you can receive a 50% discount by clicking here, or by signing up for a premium account here and entering in “student101” as your promotional code.

To make an incredibly long story short, I’ve decided to promote my blog with a contest of sorts. I’ve been looking for prizes and have only been able to manage to scrape up some user accounts for demonoid.com, the exclusive torrent community, and a card worth 10 free song downloads from essentialplaylist.com, the “best of the best selections” music site.
If anyone can think of or has some prizes they’d be willing to donate to my giveaway, please contact me either by comment, via the contact link in the upper right hand corner of your screen, or through twitter (@techno_heads).
