One Man’s Junk, Is Another Man’s Treasure

I get lots of gifts from companies during the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show. Most gifts are branded item so I get a reminder that I visited those companies while at the show. Some gifts are really nice and some are, well, junk. Normally I leave the junk behind in the hotel and let house keeping get rid of it. Then I remember the old saying, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. With that in mind, I’ve decided I would give away the gifts that I have no use for.

Our first piece of junk up for grab is a gift from ECS. The is the company that flew me to Taiwan and China all expenses paid, but when it came to giving me a CES gift, all they can managed was a fountain pen and a 128 Meg USB flash drive. I didn’t know they still make flash drives that small!


The contest is really simple – just add John Chow dot Com to your Technorati favorites and you are entered. If you already have this blog in your Technorati favorites, then you don’t have to do anything. Right now, the blog is favorited by 68 members, so your chances are winning are 1 in 68 (for now).

On Monday, I will draw a random name from all the Technorati members who have this blog in their favorites and that person will win a nice pen and flash drive. It comes in a nice black box too.

*Update – The winner will be announced in a new post, and if they have a blog, a link to their blog will also be posted.
