Yeah, just like Microsoft... hold a contest and don't invite anyone!

So far as an on-line service provider they are demonstrating that their abilities are really 'on par' with their operating software security abilities!

Edit: look here: ninemsn Secret Search - win free prizes powered by Live Search (http://search.ninemsn.com.au/)

despite this being a stupid business idea i think Asher is a bit over the top. Do apple not sell MS Office in their stores? Are they not building MS exchange into Iphone and Snow Leopard? etc

Anyone won anything on this? I've been clicking away in idle moments for a week or two, but nada.

I'm probably single handedly responsible for a 35% rise in the usage of their crap search engine.

I just really wanted to be able to say that Microsoft bought me an iPod.
