WOW finds new way to get your money: Visa – priceless

Friday, May 4th, 2007

Picture 1.jpgSeriously, this should surprise no one. Blizzard has teamed up with First of Omaha bank (a decent company in my experience) to do WOW branded credit cards. You spend money, you earn gametime as you spend at a rate of 1% per dollar. They don’t say how many points you need to spend to get the game time. If my math is right, that means you would spend roughly $1500 to earn 1 month of game play. That’s a lot of Chinese take-out.

They offer 13 different styles of card. It’s drawn artwork, not screenshots.

I took a look at the fineprint and the card has some good features:
9.00% APR for the first 12 billing cyles (read 1 year). After that it’s between 9.99% and 13.99%
Balance transfers get 0.00$ APR for the first 12 months.
No annual Fee

It’s a pretty good package. I think Blizzard did some arm twisting.

I was going to write a story about this but I’m speechless.
5000 Gold for sex.

I wonder if this is a TOS violation.

‘I play a level 70 night elf druid and would prefer someone who was into roleplaying (I have a costume!) boy honestly anyone will do, as long long as you have the gold. I would also be ok with a woman too, as long as you have the gold!’
The craiglist ad is after the jump.

I’m guessing some form of mind control is going to be required for this transaction to be completed.

WWJD in BC????

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

253_if-they-played-jesus.jpgFile under FTW??! The freaks nice people at wow.qj.net have started a new series called ‘what would they do.’ In this case they cast Jesus as an uber Warlock in WOW. Yes you read that right. W A R L O C K.

It gets better: ‘Best of all, He calls back Mary Magdalene every so often… as a succubus.’

I don’t make this stuff up people. Read it yourself.

Look I just work here.

I’ve suspected trouble in BC for awhile now…

Now I have proof! Check out this little video.

I Phone … the future of wow?

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

iPhone By now the iPhone has derailed the train of thought for many a web surfer. Heck Cisco was suing Apple over trademark infringement hours after it was announced. Now that’s success. Or at least great free press.
The iPhone promises desktop quality Internet and iPod quality media in the palm of your hand. Not bad.
If you were paying attention, you might have noticed that this sexy beast runs OS X and it supports wifi and bluetooth.

Sooo, what if you could setup a fold-out bluetooth keyboard and mouse so you could play WOW on your phone. I think the 8 Gig model could handle it. The screen would be tiny but it’s 160 dpi so it would be sharp. I don’t know what the processor speed is, but based on the keynote demo video, I’m betting it’s pretty fast.
Just an idea for the ultimate WOW freak out there. What do you think?

Update: Steve Jobs has announced that no apps will be added to the iPhone without the Apple A-OK – so I’m guessing that my little pipe-dream is a crack-pipe-dream. sigh.

WOW + Mac + Wii = Wee!

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

What would you do for a Wii Mac? This crazy fella is playing WOW on his mac with a Nintendo Wiimote.

I just thought you guys would want to see this one.

It looks easy. All you need is a few hundred dollars for a Wii and tons of free time.

Don’t you love when they put completely irrelevant stuff on your favorite sites?

gratuitous Paris Hilton pictureLately I’ve been visited by the Ghost of Christmas SPAM. 🙂

It seems that a number of ‘not so clever’ internet marketers have been attempting to post flattering comments in an effort to boost links to their own sites. Clever. Not!

Naturally I left a few pointless comments for my own ego’s sake (since you guys hardly say anything) but I usually just ignore the darn things.

That is until I got this whimsical quote in my email:

A nicely crafted haiku without a parishilton and britney spears remark purposefulness transport additional probe since it does extend the tenants of standard haiku, but if it is OK adequate, it can be recognized. We all get off together….

I can’t remember a time where I have read such a poetic piece of horse manure. It’s really quite good for a Paris Hilton nude pics site.

I’m all for creative marketing and a free market economy, but seriously.

Dang!

Well my account has expired. Until I can raise the cash to get going again, I’m going to have to live vicariously through your exploits. I had hoped that adwords would help pay we we are not getting enough traffic right now.

So…
1. Please invite others to visit the site
2. Send money (just kidding)
3. Post comments so we can keep the site running

Don’t give up on me. I’ll keep posting.
