Who wants to be a twenty-aire?

Who wants to be a twenty-aire? $20 for you, $10 for me. Or, $20 for you, $10 for Justin. Or whatever. Either way, I can't find the catch. Free money, and you don't even have to write a review of anything.

The way Bank of America has been dicking me around, I expect to transfer to an Internet bank by the end of the year. Although x.com is interesting and is giving away free money, I don't think this will be it. I'll probably wait until ETrade gets its act together with Telebank. If precedence is anything, I expect ETrade to give $100, United miles and a toaster to early adopters.

This is also the first one-letter domain that I'm aware of. (I lack the interest go try all 26 to find out.)

fyi, a-z and 1-9 are all taken in .com, .net, and .org form. it's just that nobody's actually done anything interesting or noteworthy with any of the other single character domain names. most of them don't even have operations web sites. tragic. sure seems like i.com, a.com, or e.com shoulda woulda coulda been something...

Funny, I'm in the same situtation - using BofA (doesn't everyone in CA?), about to change to an "Internet bank"... Haven't decided which though... Anyone have any thoughts on this? (http://www.compubank.com is giving a lot of www.clickrewards.com air miles for using them - that seems like a REALLY good thing...)
