Free USB Drive from Microsoft
« on: March 02, 2006, 04:27:39 PM »

Microsoft is giving away FREE USB Drives
Well free if you want to give up a little information and attempt 4 question True/False quiz.

This is the only question which needs the default answer changed to 2 as shown:


I'm waiting for mine right now. :) Hopefully its bigger than 32M.
It comes loaded with information about valuable Windows Licensing info.
Once that's erased, :o you'll have a FREE USB drive.
 


MS Passport account required to apply for one.

I hope I'll get it too!  ;D But it's really strange... I think the info in the drive will be not rewritable because the drive will be read only. Hope I'm wrong...  ;)

I do not know what you can give for a phone number though I doubt MS would mis-use your cell number. Perhaps you have a friend who would let you use a phone numebr. Maybe that person would also like a free USB drive. But, for the company name, you can use your security webpage title (or a variation of it) for the company name.

Ok, wtf ??? I click Finish and it asks me to enter MSN Passport password again.
Then it loops again back to the fill in information screen. Was it sent or not?
DId you get any confirmation that it was sent successful?
