Happy Thanksgiving from AppleWatch

Happy Thanksgiving from AppleWatch.

As a holiday gift from me to you there will be updated content here.

Free iPod Nano

Looking for an iPod Nano? Need to replace one that is broken and Apple won’t fix?

You can get an iPod Nano for FREE here. All you need to do is complete an offer (such as signing up for a credit card or a free $20 gift card from Lowes) and then get 5 friends to do the same under you. You can find reviews of the various offers at RateTheOffers.com.

I am no longer paying anyone to signup under me. I have gotten my needed referrals. You can still signup for the program and get your friends to signup under you. And there are other sites offering free iPods. Some of them work, I already have a free 20GB iPod from Freepay and my free iPod Nano should come soon.

KBCafe Blog Awards Winner: Best Apple Blog

Well it looks like AppleWatch has won the 2005 KBCafe Blog Award for Best Apple Blog with 29% of the vote. We beat out the Mac Observer and The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Here’s to another year of Apple news and speculation.

Google Video to Offer Paid Content

Jennifer Feikin, Director of Google Video, was at a We Media panel in which she said that “what has happened in the past 15 years is pretty phenomenal” and user-generated content “really is just the beginning.” The Internet enables new ways of building upon collaboration, and Google Video is part of that. Google Video has until now dealt with free content, but “there will be the ability for people to pay for content.” Google “will enable that payment mechanism” and it is “just another step in Google’s effort to try to enable access to more information.” “We’re really trying to facilitate that connection between users and the content owners.”

Rock the Vote, Vote or Die, Get out the vote

All those slogans can be used for this campaign. AppleWatch was nominated for Best Tech Blog a couple of weeks ago after some confusion in the nominating process. It was actually in the running for “Worst Everything Blog”, but they decided to keep it after realizing their mistake. I would greatly appreciate your vote. And if you do vote for me, you’re cool in my book, and that’s not just because you voted for me. Promise. If I ever meet you in person, I’ll give you a hardy hand shake.

If the stress of applying two clicks to the mouse is too much, please disregard the next message. My buddy over at BusinessBits is also up for an award under Best New Blog - and I’m pretty sure that’s the original category they planned for him. He certainly deserves it, so he’ll probably appreciate you vote too. I’m just not so sure he’ll offer the hand shake deal too.

Turn your regular iPod into an iPod shuffle in just 3 easy steps!

Give it away, give it away, give it away now

While this may seem like something a Google blog would do and not an Apple blog, I also have some unused Gmail invites that I don’t know what to do with. Right now I have 6 available and if you’re one of the few that still don’t have a gmail account, but really need 1GB of porn storage, contact me either by commenting here or emailing me at apple@blognewschannel.com
