Dot Com Pho – The Person Who Least Deserves It Always Wins It Edition

Last week, we had so few people showed up at Dot Com Pho that I didn’t brother to film an episode. Things looked much better this week with eight people making it out to the Pho fest. Ed Lau would have been last again but he slept in and by the time he woke up, Pho was over. If you wish to join us for Dot Com Pho, just reply to me on Twitter when I send out the time and location. Everyone is welcome to attend.

For this edition of the Dot Com Pho we have the person who least deserves to win an Apple iPad winning it, I harass a girl protesting sexual harassment in the workplace, hot and sour soup that is more hot than sour, the return of Stephen Fung Version 2 and the Apple iPad app of the week.

  1. Haha ad Ed. He’s got a serious timing issue πŸ˜› Has he ever been early – or even the first one there?

    Also, not sure if you’re interested, but check out the Karma program on our site. Free links for review blog posts and tweets! Help a faithful reader out!

    1. Ed Lau says:

      Only on days when I go to pho before going to sleep. You’ll see some instances of this happening in past episodes.

      1. Ed, that is the reason why you are in IM, you can sleep whenever your want and work whenever you feel like it πŸ˜‰ SY

        1. Ryan McLean says:

          One of the many benefits of IM. The only thing is you need to make sure you get some sleep and have some sort of a life! Hard to do when you are in the thick of IM and are having loads of fun working towards wealth

          1. Your dreams always keep you awake.

      2. lol…that’s the way to do it! Go hard or go home πŸ™‚

      3. I know you aren’t kidding because I saw you come on time about a month ago.

    2. d3so says:

      When will you choose which links to feature on the retweet contest?

      1. chexsystems says:

        I want to know it too.so which links will be in the retweet contest?

      2. John Chow says:

        What retweet contest? There was only two. One for the taking a pic with the book and one for reviewing the book.

        1. Thanks for clarifying it John because I never heard of any retweet contest either.

          1. d3so says:

            I was talking about Top Commenters retweet contest.

            John’s next giveaway is an ipad for downloading his ebook πŸ˜‰

          2. Lakhyajyoti says:

            Waiting for your next contest John.

          3. Yes but please do not expand time this time and if do than increase the number of prizes.

          4. d3so says:

            lol yeah, more prizes would be nice.

  2. Bah – didn’t get a plug for my review! It’s ok though. It looked like there were a lot there. Go Zac πŸ™‚

    1. d3so says:

      lol I didn’t think I was gonna get a plug but i was the last one.
      It’s deso or dΓ©so, John.
      3 for e.
      πŸ˜‰

      1. LOl….make sure he know’s which one is you…

      2. Sure it’s not a “C”? lol

        1. d3so says:

          I don’t get what both of you guys are saying.
          ????

          1. Yep … seems to me that you need to ask more for ebooks and ipad. Lollzzz

          2. d3so says:

            oh yea lol. He spelt out my name but I couldn’t really make out what he was saying πŸ˜›

  3. Hey John,

    Maybe Zac deserves to win but he didn’t need to. I’m sure he already has iPad.

    Will you do another draw if he says give it to the next person?

    1. John Chow says:

      Sure, if Zac says give it to the next person, I’ll draw another name. However, I think he’s keeping it since he actually doesn’t have an iPad! His text said, he was hoping to win one! LOL

      1. d3so says:

        Dang it! Well hats off to Zack.

        The next drawing is for the blog profit model ebook download, right?
        Which will take place next week…?
        (even less of a chance for me to win)
        I’ve made it a goal to win an ipad online. πŸ™‚

      2. Zac Johnson says:

        Thanks John, that’s really awesome. As much as everyone thinks I have iPads laying all over the place, I actually never ended up getting one!

        It was great to promote your book, but winning was the topping on the cake!

        Thanks!

        1. LOL…sorry yalls, no pass-ups here. Well done Zac!

        2. Lakhyajyoti says:

          Surely you’ll win.

        3. I’m shocked Zac,

          My hopes are frustrated but if you didn’t have iPad which we were all sure of than you do deserve it as much as anyone who did the review of John’s book.

          Vance

          1. Zac Johnson says:

            If I already had an iPad I definitely would have passed this one along in another contest, but this is my first. I’ve actually been talking with John on how much he enjoyed using his and almost bought one last month… good thing I didn’t!

          2. PPC Ian says:

            Zac,
            Congratulations on winning! You have an awesome blog and one of the coolest designs around. Hope you enjoy your new iPad!
            All the best,
            Ian

          3. Congrats! πŸ™‚

        4. d3so says:

          I guess this means you’re keeping it πŸ™
          Congrats!
          U deserve to win just as much as everyone who entered.

        5. Bidet says:

          Congrats on winning, have fun with your new iPad

        6. Surprised you hadn’t bought one yet.

          1. Zac do not have iPad … listen everybody, this is unexpected

  4. Bidet says:

    Great video, congrats on winning the iPad Zac

  5. Some guys have all the luck!

  6. Luck helps a lot but it’s fickle. The next time around it may land on somebody else.

    1. May be Jereky Shoemoney … lollzz

      1. Apologies for spelling mistakes –

        Its Jeremy Shoemoney

  7. Baker says:

    THat pho looks yummy. Congratulations to Zac for winning the awesome ipad!!! Enjoy it.

    1. Lakhyajyoti says:

      Congrats Zac.You are lucky man.

    2. PPC Ian says:

      That pho sure does look delicious!

  8. Boy John,

    When will you be doing another contest like this one, I really hate I missed out.

    TrafficColeman β€œSigning Off”

    1. Very soon …

      Once he got the sponsor.

  9. Med Student says:

    Man John I wish I had time like you. I’m in Med school and it requires so my time, energy, and attention. Hopefully I can create a medical blog and be successful like you.

    1. d3so says:

      I suggest you go for it. Start a blog and about things you’re passionate about.

    2. Just curious… what do you blog about in a medical blog? Isn’t there some problems with patient confidentiality.? Even if you didn’t mention names, I think that could get you in some trouble. Or would it be about something else? New and upcoming technology in the medical world perhaps?

      1. d3so says:

        As long as you don’t mention names and any information that could lead to the patient then it’s fine.
        It’d be appropriate to blog about new medical breakthroughs and medical household tips, or a simple article on a disease and prevention. You get the point.

        1. Yeah but if you don’t mention any information that could lead to the patient, then how interesting could it be? You say, I had this really rare case of “blank” today. Right there, you’re revealing information that could lead to the patient.
          I think you’d have to stick strictly to the second set of information.

  10. Dan Lew says:

    Nice giveaway, good luck to the winners!

  11. celest says:

    Congratulations for the winning! Missed this…hope to participate in the next contest πŸ™‚

  12. I am just confused by all this talk of reviews

    1. d3so says:

      What talk of reviews?

  13. Congratulations Zack!
    That app looks great John. I can see how kids would definitely like that as a way to learn their ABCs. I just don’t know how many parents will be willing to let their kid play with their not inexpensive iPad πŸ™‚

    1. John always share kids based Applications.

      Seems to me Sally is ruling iPad.

  14. So are Dot Dom Pho’s a tax write off???

    1. John Chow says:

      It can be if it’s used for business.

      1. d3so says:

        Do you pay for everyone?

        1. Saw in John post that he looks for the sponsored of food event.

  15. Benny says:

    I would have guessed he had one too. Lucky for him. I’m sure he wasn’t even thinking about really winning one. That’s a great giveaway though!

  16. PPC Ian says:

    John,
    Another awesome Dot Com Pho! Man, I was hoping to win that iPad but excited to see my name in the mix. Thanks for the plug. Big congrats to Zac Johnson on the win. Zac’s blog sports one of the most amazing designs I have seen.
    All the best,
    Ian

  17. Nice to see that old fellow … do not remember his name but now he is the owner of black heirs … earlier he had clean shaved head.

  18. Hahahaha! Nice Zac!!! That was awesome.

  19. Earl says:

    How often is dot com pho?

    1. d3so says:

      it seems you’re new here. it’s every saturday

    2. John Chow says:

      Normally, every Saturday. Unless I’m out of town. πŸ™‚

      1. So basically this depends on you.

        I think this kind of event should go on … and should not depend on the presence of any one.

        What do you say ?

  20. It seems the sexual harassment lady took it all in stride…….a good sport!

  21. haha…What an interesting title !
