If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, an what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of stuff, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.
They’re quite touchy about anything like that, especially my father. They’re nice and all–I’m not saying that–but they’re also touchy as heck. Besides, I’m not going to tell you my whole autobiography or anything. I’ll just tell you about this madman stuff that happened to me around last
Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come out here and take it easy. I was giving away a Droid X sponsored by a company called Rebtel and they wanted me to post it on CrunchGear and TechCrunch and ask people to comment to win.
Here’s a bunch of information about Rebtel, in case you wanted to know:
Rebtel is yet another reason you need to convince your friends abroad
to get an Android. Rebtel’s Android App says bye bye to international
calling fees. Simply download the app and call any other Android
device around the world for free, just paying the price, if any for
your local minutes plan.
For all other calls, Rebtel’s international calling app runs in the
background and will intercept users from making expensive long
distance calls by automatically converting the number to a cheap local
number. It’s seamless to the consumer and saves 95% of the call price.
No Wi-Fi needed: Rebtel works on the standard cellular network using
local phone numbers where the caller lives instead of requiring an
active Internet connection to make free or low-cost international
calls. Rebtel for Android works anytime, anywhere and works with the
standard dial pad and address book.
Also just so you know I’ll be picking a winner at noon Eastern on Monday. Only comment once and include your email in the comment form but not in the comment body itself. It’s a Verizon phone and all that, so if you’re not in Verizon’s coverage area it probably won’t do you any good. Otherwise, it’s a pretty good phone.
Also understand that I censored the first few paragraphs of one of the greatest American books of the 20th century because I knew there would be a bunch of folks who would get angry at me for saying swear words.
