Microsoft Wants To Make Me Sweat

With all the hoopla over tomorrow’s record setting Dot Com Pho, I’ve almost forgot that we have a date with Microsoft tonight. It seems that MS like our merry band of Dot Com Pho goers so much that they’ve invited us to the Canada launch party for the MS Zune.

Microsoft is one of the sponsors of Dot Com Pho so it was only natural that they would invite the Dot Com crew to what I’m sure will be an awesome party. Now that they don’t have to spend $47 billion to buy Yahoo, they have a lot of money to throw around for party gifts. I say free Zune for everyone!

The party starts at 9PM tonight at The Sweatshop. It’s an indoor skateboard park, which is a strange place to hold a party but I’m sure they’ll pull it off. Keep an eye out for me if you’re going. I’ll be the guy wearing the Apple T-shirt. 😈

          John you are so controversial. My question is are you going to jump on a skateboard and take a spin?

    First, Stephen told me it was downtown. And then the details revealed that it was EAST Hastings and not WEST Hastings. Totally different vibe. That said, if they’ve got free booze, you know the dot com pho crew will be there.

    1. Stephen says:

      Hey, anything past Burnaby is downtown for me!

    Hey you got nay extra tickets or should I just try and crash it at the gate? I live only 10 blocks away? email me if you have extra tickets or can get me in…

    1. John Chow says:

      There are no tickets. It’s invite only. You need to be on the guest list. However, don’t let that stop you from crashing it! 😈

      1. Greg Stratz says:

        Alright then I will head down and see if I can ” walk ” right in… Might drop your name 👿 .. if I get in I will look for you!

      2. Sava says:

        so … if somebody comes and he is not on the list … how is he supposed to get in ? 😯

  7. Thiago Prado says:

    If you receive some MS Zunes you should give it to yours readers to be drafted in the Dot Com Pho. 😀

  8. James says:

    This may be a stupid question, but are you just getting the Zune in Canada now?

    1. pileofblogs says:

      yes the zune is coming to canada!

      1. Terry Tay says:

        Yep, and the iphone will be in Canada this year too.

        The iPod has been in Canada for wuite some time so if microsoft is trying to get into the mp3 market they are a bit late 😉

  22. Reading this post after the post about the party being a flop gave me a good laugh.

  23. Sounds like from the tone of this post you were probably expecting a better party, too bad it was such a let down. Bummer…

  24. Is the party over yet? argh! 😡 Missed it by a minute. Well, as long as I’m here, better take my penguin for a walk. :mrgreen:
