Last weekend they had a Facebook contest where you had to comment on their Facebook post and they would pick five winners to receive a prize. After the contest ended they said they'd just go ahead and give everyone who commented the prize.
And the Facebook contest was while they had two other community contests going on.
Great community support.

Ah, 8-bit assembly code...the last time Assembly was easy...
Sep 18th 2008 1:30PM A great little player and it's just nice to know that folks still try to get more on these devices than the manufacturer intends. Some of them could really turn into nice little PDAs.
Sep 7th 2008 3:20PM From the survey:
23: How would you rate yourself in terms of physical fitness?
1-- Big fat slob
2-- Not so big, but still a fat slob
3-- Pretty good looking and enormously strong!
24: How healthy are you?
1-- PLEASE CALL 911 I JUST COUGHED SOMETHING UP! IS THAT MY PANCREAS?
2-- I have alot of playing time because I'm always home sick! Win-Win!
3-- I have an amazing constitution and did I mention that I am good looking?
Honestly, aren't most surveys like this purposely skewed in their wording by manufacturers so that any information gleaned from it is not detrimental to sales and/or public relations?

Just because we KNOW it's a hit now doesn't mean it was a sure-thing to begin with.
Shortages are MUCH easier to explain to stockholders than explaining warehouses full of unsold stock.

Aug 26th 2008 3:28PM They seem spot-on. The sad truth is that Blizzard could wrap Pac-Man in a World of Warcraft box and likely sell millions.
I'm not saying the expansion will do much to extend the lifetime of the game but you can't deny it will probably sell more copies than the next 9 games combined on the top-ten list.
I'm sure Warhammer will have a decent unveiling but whether they can deliver something different enough to keep the servers filled will be another question entirely.
Aug 26th 2008 11:08AM I really liked Resident Evil. :( The first one, at least.
Aug 25th 2008 8:11AM Interesting but I think I'd prefer the extra inch of screen real-estate on iRiver and Archos' latest PMPs. But I use mine mainly for movie-watching.
