The Love You Wanted: $600 Gadget Giveaway Winner!


This past weekend I held a huge giveaway for anyone that didn’t quite feel the love over Valentine’s Day the previous weekend.  Be it gadget love, or some other form of lovelessness.  Some 5,803 of you are apparently lacking a small tidbit of love in your gadget life, but no worries, I can reduce that number down to 5,802.

As is usually the case, I cruised over to my lovely friend,, and stuck in the total number of entries:


Then it was back to the post to find #4707:


Congrats Jerome C., you’re the sole the winner of $600 bucks of gadget awesomeness!

As for everyone else?  Well, you can still go buy some love for yourself from Clever Training, and you’ll still save 10% on basically everything they sell, unless it’s already on some sort of big sale.  From GPS watches to trainers to power meters, and even gel packets. Socks too.

Thanks to them for the giveaway, and everyone for the support!

    You mean I lost out due to some silly atmospheric noise randomness, even after sending Ray my $20 bribe? All I get is a worthless bag of gold icon? Jerome better become a paying member with some of his new found wealth! Congrats Jerome, I’m not bitter. wink,wink

    I should have won, the gods of Rome are punishing you with lightnings and rain, Just kidding sorry for the weather. If you are near, and rain proof, go at fontana di Trevi dhe best way to enjoy it without the hundreds other people. And every body is going to say Giolitti, for icecreams but I will say Grom 40m from Giolitti best hazelnut ever and they make a pretty good hot chocolate too.

  12. Jerome C

    Damn! For a sec, I thought it was me, Jerome C ,,, but understood that it was an another one :) Congrats Jerome C as well as Ray for this regular giveaway generosity!

  13. Ping
