Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first dip into the blogging trench, started out of my curiosity to know what actually is a blog. I try to put here my readings from various sources; books, blogs, sites. I also grab stuff from here & there and try to showcase it in my own style here. If you'd like my scribblings, please subscribe to my full text RSS feeds.

Currently I am experimenting a few new features on my blog, like Peekaboo and Post Summary; the reason for the slight distortion you see. I am hoping to frame up these soon, please bear with me!

Most people would love an iPhone, especially for FREE. That’s why many companies are offering free iPhones as a promotional offer.

Contests and promotional offers range from only entering your email to participate, to create a video, picture, write, and attend conferences.

Of course, there’s nothing free about these offers. The catch is they want you to do an action, which can range from creating an account on ebay, buy DVDs, or subscribe to a magazine. The good news is many of these offers don’t require you to purchase anything (e.g: creating an account on ebay) but you’ll need to refer many friends. They get money from those sponsors, so they can afford to send you an iPhone.

Bottom line: It’s worth it if you have many friends to spread the fire!

Put together here is a list of sites and companies, such as Google and Threadless, currently offering free iPhones. Many of them are contests and giveaways.


GiftMonkey will give you a free iPhone if you live in the USA or some cash to buy it if you live outside of the USA. Residents of many countries are accepted, and many offers are free. Example of an offer that doesn’t require you to purchase anything is creating an account on eBay.
