Surfing The Web

7 Nov

We’re pleased to report that our e-mail box is overflowing with positive responses for our Friday Surfing The Web feature. However, it does concern us a bit that one of our most popular regular features is about other sites’ greatness. Oh well. As always, here’s a few links to help you be unproductive at work. Enjoy:

Attention Sports Illustrated fans (and phone users)

Let it be known that we here at The Max appreciate Sports Illustrated. SI.com is one of the most comprehensive sports sites around and often the inspiration for us to work harder to find new, creative material. 
With that said, this is something that we have to mention: the awesomeness (is that a word?) surrounding their free gift for subscription back when corded phones were all the rave, the Shoe Phone. 
As far as free things go, this ranks right up there with credit reports (those commercials are great), ringtones, samples and upgrades.
But we have to wonder how many goofballs that received this sweet gift wore the shoe around and then had someone call it so they could take it off for the big finish. Hilarity ensured, I’m sure.
Here is the original commercial for the foot-warming freebie. I’m not sure if it was gimmicked, but the reaction of these people are pretty entertaining. 

Just wait until we find a good photo and video of the football phone. The awesomeness of that freebie puts this one to shame.
