Coming straight from the infamous Phoenix heat... Progger! Plus, Brett Favre signs to Minnesota, "Apple Store Kid" does Boom Boom Pow, the worst bid ever on The Price is Right, Microsoft Banned from selling Word in the US, and arguably one of the most epic Rick Astley mashups to date.
As we told you in last week's episode, we've made up 10 domain names that are related to some of the most popular things related to diggnation - or stuff that we just think is funny. We've registered these names with our good friends at GoDaddy.com and they're going to be giving them away - at random - to 10 customers. Some of the names include HIPPYGLENN.COM and DIGGNATIONU.COM plus 8 more. To qualify, you just need to register a .COM, .NET, .BIZ or .ORG using the promo code DIGGDOMAIN.
Now, that DIGGDOMAIN promo code also knocks the price down to just $7.49 per domain, so if you've had your eye on a domain for a while, you can save some money and get a chance at winning one of the domains we picked out.
See the official rules at Revision3.com/DiggDomain. Also, we'll check in on some of the domain names that were randomly given away if any of the winners do anything cool with their random domain names.
