The Winner of The Google Christmas Gift

Congrats goes out the Tyson Williams for winning the Christmas gift from Google. Tyson’s name was drawn out of over 300 entries. That makes this contest one of the best ever. You guys must want a flash drive really bad!

For those who didn’t win, don’t feel too bad. There are still two more contests going on. The first is the TTZ Media affiliate contest for a 22″ LG LCD monitor. We’re giving away two of those. The deadline to enter that contest is the end of this year (that’s in two days). If you haven’t got your entry in, better get on it!

The second contest is for the Ruff PC laptop. I made it into the final round of voting. I came second in the last round. If I win this final round, I win the Ruff PC and that means one of you will win the Ruff PC! So head on over there and vote! Or just vote for me here using this widget. 🙂

Help me win by putting the above poll on your blog. Using the following codes:

    Who won the first round?

    1. John Chow says:

      The site that won the first round didn’t make it pass the second round.

      1. Shaun Carter says:

        Actually they withdrew from the competition… not that they were getting enough votes to make it to the next round anyway.

  2. That Ruff PC is a popularity contest now…looks like it’s as good as yours 😈

    Considering the voting widget appeared in the RSS feed, I think you stand a pretty good chance of winning. It’s *only* 14,347 RSS feeds that the widget just appeared in. :mrgreen:

    1. It doesn’t show up in the RSS feed. At least, it didn’t in mine (Google Reader).

      1. It showed up in mine but I use Bloglines. Have been meaning to switch just haven’t gotten around to it.

    2. Well good luck! I am sure you will be first in 5 more days. It wasn’t that big a difference between the first 2. The widget will most likely appear in TechTreak RSS feeds too. But he isn’t giving it away if he’d win it right? 😀

    Nice contests you have running there John, though personally, given the fact that my office currently “hosts” 3 computers/2 printers/podcasting gear/2 phones/1 fax machine, the last thing I need is more hardware…I think I am starting to develop some kind allergy 🙂

    Hey John,
    I voted for you too 😛
    To support you, I have also put the widget in my blog.
    You said that if you won the final round, you won the Ruff PC and that meant one of us would win the Ruff PC. If you really win, are you going to have a lucky draw from all the names of people who leave comments for this post?

  29. seo audit says:

  33. Patrick says:

    I really wanted to win but I forgot to enter! Congrats Tyson and Sweet Mummy who won my contest!

  34. Apparently TechTreak has so far twice the voters John has. 310 – 157. Plenty of time though for things to change.

  35. Will says:

    Congrats Tyson

  36. I voted for you again! 🙄
