A Really Cool Blog Contest


Man, have I got a cool contest for you! The CoolIT USB Beverage Chiller is the world’s first USB powered drink cooler. That’s right! You can be the true cool kid at the next LAN party. While everyone is sucking down warmed over Coke, you’ll keep your cool because your drink is still cold. At least you can pretend it is.

My testing of the CoolIT Chiller shows it doesn’t really work but that doesn’t matter. Thirst is nothing. Imagine is everything! And the imagine the Chiller projects is you have all the cool toys. I have a Chiller sitting by my desk and now you can have one too!

To enter the Chiller thriller contest, just reply to this post. I’ll draw a random winner on Sunday and that person will become the new cool kid on the block. You only need to reply once. Making multiple comments won’t get you multiple entries. However, if you blog about it and send a trackback to this post, I’ll accept that as a second entry.

Good luck!

  9. DJ Weezu says:

  10. Jon Lee says:

  11. Oh I want one!!! Pick me..Pick me!!! 😯

  12. MLS says:

    It might work better for beer bottles, they’re bottoms are flat.. πŸ’‘

  13. Jacob says:

    Now that is actually something I have to say is funny as hell. Hey John, if I win, I’ll buy a beer and use it! πŸ˜›

  14. That’s awesome!

  15. blogcrowds says:

    Nice John, read your post yesterday, never really came to me that this prize would be actually “cool” – if you know what I mean.

    I’m not sure if I would want to bring this to a LAN maybe the USB humping dog would have been cooler. πŸ˜€

  16. cooliojones says:

    Might be better if it did hot beverages, but hey, free is free!!

  17. Stephen says:

    Oh man! Not thing thing! πŸ˜†

    I have one right here that keeps my papers from blowing away πŸ˜›

  32. Nick says:

    Why would I want to win something that doesn’t work? Oh well, guess I just got entered in the contest…maybe this will become the new Zune (what else are you going to do with a prize that doesn’t work) πŸ™‚

    At least he was upfront with us and admitted that it did not work as intended. Although, it must not be too bad if he has one sitting at his desk. It must at least kinda work.

    1. Think about it, when John becomes crazy famous (not that he isn’t already), it could be worth a lot of money in the future.

  33. John, call me an idiot if you will but I’m not sure on the term trackback i’m still getting my feet wet in the blogging world. However, I did write about your contest and other things you do to promote your blog on a post.

  139. WTJ says:

    let me try my luck

  140. AIQ says:

    Why would i want a gadget that wont work? The idea of a USB Drink Chiller is briliant though. How about them making the type that keeps my coffee or tea HOT!. A lot of times i forget my hot coffee while my brain is-a-glued to the screen!

  141. Eric D says:

    Here in the backwoods of Kentucky that would be equal to the Jetson’s coping to town. Enter me please…….

  144. Ryan says:

    Dr. Pepper? That stuff tastes like carbonated cough syrup. Coke is the best soda.

    1. Not a big fan of Dr Pepper either. You’re right on the money — carbonated cough syrup. πŸ˜†

  145. MC says:

    P.S. If I win, please give the prize to someone else. I don’t want it.

  156. John Cow says:

    Does it work with milk?

    1. John Chow says:

      Since it doesn’t keep a Coke cold, I doubt it’ll do much better with milk.

      1. Usman says:

        Hey please enter me into the contest John Chow!!!!

  157. Karl Staib says:

    I don’t even like Coke, but I want one.

    Count me in! Id love to win this regardless of reviews. πŸ˜†

  159. Lau says:

    I love the fact that it doesn’t really work… but I still want it :mrgreen: Count me in

  160. Im curious, what do you gain from giving away stuff for comments. I mean yea you get more comments, but does does it benifit you in any other way?

    1. John Chow says:

      Yes it does benefit me. It gets readers that never used to comment commenting. And when they comment, they tend to read other comments. This can create more comments. Next thing you know, they’re an active part of the community.

      1. Man o Man,
        So may suckers, and only one chiller
