…It’s TGI Friday: Moola?

Moola Logo

What if you could make real money from your online gaming addiction?

What if you could make that money without ever risking any of your own?

Moola, a “massively multiplayer rewards game”, wants to do just that, and will be opening its site (currently in beta) to the masses by the end of today.

(If you’d like to get in, and the site is still not live, click HERE for an invite.)

So how does it work?

Moola WinningsWhen you first join the site, Moola gives you a penny. You then play a game against another player, and you both wager that penny. Before the game starts, you have to watch an ad, and then the winner of the game receives both player’s pennies. Betting continues at higher and higher dollar amounts until you decide to either cash out, or you go broke and have to start all over again. Any time you loose all of your money, Moola gives you another penny and you start all over again.

Since you double up each time you play, if you can win 30 times in a row, you’d walk away with $10.7 million, but considering the fact that both players would be risking $5.35 million (you can cash out at any time), the chances of that ever happening are slim to none.

Regardless, the highest cash out so far has been in the $5,500 range, so there is some serious cash to be made if you play the games right. Plus, when the site goes live, there will be a steam of new players, meaning the pace of play is going to pick up dramatically.

Sound like a deal?

Then head on over and try it out, because other player’s Moola isn’t going to wait around forever.

…Leopard is coming?

Apple Leopard

The date has finally been finalized; On Friday, October 26, 2007, Apple will release Leopard, its latest operating system, to hoards of screaming Apple fanboys.

Ok, so it might not be that dramatic, but considering how long it’s been since their last release, a new OS is kind of a big deal. Plus, as Vista continues to flounder, it’s time once again for Apple to one up the ‘Soft boys.

Looking to get in on the action? Amazon has a pre-order deal going on right now, and you can save $20 if you’re willing to wait a few days for shipping.

Check out Apple’s site for a list of the over 300 new features that Leopard is bringing, and prepare to be upgraded.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Jellyfish Smack Shopping?

Jellyfish Smack Of The Day

Jellyfish Smack iPod

Jellyfish offers a unique way to buy products called Smack Shopping. Each day, a variety of items (usually tech related, but sometimes it’s anything goes) are sold in a type of Dutch auction where the price starts out at retail and continues to drop until the limited number of items for sale sell out. The drawback is that you pay the full amount, and then after 60 days Jellyfish cuts you a check for the amount of savings you bought in at, so it takes a while to receive your savings. The upside is that you can usually get some pretty good deals on items that usually don’t go on sale, such as iPods, PS3s, XBOX 360s, MacBooks, etc. I’ve actually used the service myself, and saved 37.31% ($130.21) on a brand new 80GB iPod, so I can definitely attest to the fact that the service worked. A brand new iPod arrived at my door shortly after the purchase, and I received a check for the cash back amount after waiting through the required wait period. If you don’t want to purchase that day’s Smacks, you can also try to guess the final amount of savings and earn points towards a Smack Piggyback where you can buy one product at the top discount after the Smack has finished. If you’re looking to score some great deals, or if you’re a fan of sites like Woot! And macZOT!, then definitely give Jellyfish a shot, you never know what you’re going to find.
