As I announced on March 26, RHA provided one pair of its MA450i Noise Isolating Aluminum Earphones, which I was giving away to one winner. The contest ended at midnight, so this morning I drew a random number from random.org, and selected a winner.
I’m pleased to be able to announce a giveaway I’m holding on 40Tech. RHA has provided one pair of its MA450i Noise Isolating Aluminium Earphones, which I’ll be giving to one winner. Read on for the details (entry details are at the end of this post).
RHA provided me with an identical pair to try out, and I really like them. I’m no audiophile by any stretch, but they’re defeinitely a step up from the earbuds that came with my iPhone 5.
Every once in a while, there is a shining light in the multitude of promotions and solicitations we receive at 40Tech — something that we feel is definitely worthy of being passed on to our readers. This is one of those times — at least we hope so. We want you to tell us.
So here’s what we’re going to do: We’re going to give you a link to some free stuff (that only works until Nov. 6th, so get on it now), and offer up some license codes to more free stuff. You can try them out — and keep them — and then let us know what you think. We’ll combine your feedback into a “multi-author” blog post, and let you tell the world if the WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe and WinX Blu-ray Decrypter software is worth their time.
WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, according to the promo email, is:
…your must-have for enjoying an unforgettable Halloween and the upcoming holiday season. If you have family videos shot by camcorders or interesting movies downloaded from the Internet, you can then, with the help of this software, burn those videos to DVDs or put them on your iPhone/4S, iPad, iPod, PSP, PS3, Xbox, Android, Blackberry for playback on the go!”
You can get this for free (normally $50), without any sort of weirdness or hoops to jump through, by heading to the WinX DVD Giveaway Page. Again, the giveaway ends on November 6th, 2011, so don’t wait on it. Do it now. The activation code is right there on the page. Just don’t forget to activate it before November 10th, 2011.
For the WinX Blu-ray Decrypter, we only have 10 license codes, so we have to default to the old “be the first 10 to comment and ask for it” model. First come, first served, no exceptions. If you like the idea of backing up your Blu-ray discs, then jump in and let us know. Oh, and the software needs to be activated before November 15th, 2011, for the code to be accepted.
Once you’ve tried the software out, please do send us an email or add a comment to this post, and tell us about your experience. You can also hit us up on Twitter or Facebook, or chat up Bobby and Evan on Google+.
Every once in a while, we get the opportunity to offer you guys something for free. We don’t always do it, mind you — we get a lot of solicitations, and only care to post about the products we think will be most useful to you. Well, a few weeks ago I was contacted by a representative of Digital Innovations. They make products for cleaning LCD screens, repairing discs, that sort of thing. I’ve seen their products before, or others like them, but honestly never considered buying them. I tend to roll on the cheap, as you know, and didn’t want to spend money on things that I wasn’t sure would even work.
Whether you travel once a week or once a decade, you need to have a Tripit account. There aren’t many programs that we feel that strongly about — we’re willing to concede that some people may prefer alternatives to Gmail and maybe even Evernote — but Tripit is one of the few applications that has no true competitor. Let’s take a more in-depth look at what it offers, why you need it, and talk about how you can win a free upgrade for a year of Tripit Pro. Read more
