I wish to be Australian…

By | June 17, 2009 | 2 Comments

Australia MapNeowin.net reports that Microsoft Australia will be giving away $10 000 to one lucky IE8 user. The idea is really simple and that’s how it works:

“1) Ditch the web browser you’re using. If you try to find the $10,000 with your current browser, you’ll get nowhere.
2) Download Microsoft’s best ever browser, Internet Explorer 8. It’s the only browser capable of cracking all the clues.
3) Follow @tengrand_IE8 on Twitter for the daily clues. Clues will be released at random times from Friday 19th June.
4) Use the clue and your brilliance to deduce where the $10,000 is hidden.”

Yes, it’s open to Australians only.
