Does Microsoft have a time machine? Find out April 9th

Today, we all seem to have so little time to do the things we really want to do. Microsoft knows this as well, but according to a new teaser website the company just put up, the company seems to be offering at least some people some extra free time.

Exactly how this will happen is still mysterious at this point, but the website's title does say, "Windows Phone Free Time Machine Promotion". Perhaps Microsoft, in developing the Windows Phone operating system, also discovered a way to go back in time.

We actually doubt this, but it is definitely an unique promotion for Windows Phone and the website says all will be revealed on April 9th, the day after the launch of Nokia's Lumia 900 Windows Phone based device on AT&T's network. There will apparently be some events happening in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco as well that are tied into this "Free Time Machine" promotion.

Is this marketing event tied into the launch of the Lumia 900 or is it something else entirely?  We will find out the answers to those questions and more in only a few days.

If Microsoft had a time machine, they would be telling us YESTERDAY.

Yesterday is relative though. If it was the 10th April they would have told us yesterday

Microsoft will have been having destroyed* themselves due to Grandfather's Paradox, therefore their Time Machine will have never had been happened, and so Microsoft will not have had been destroyed... and you know the rest.

* according to Time Traveler's Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations is a grammar book by Dr. Dan Streetmentioner

Well...looking at the HTML source of that page,

1. This is promotion through eprize.com, "This site is hosted for Microsoft by ePrize LLC."
2. There is "http://www.freetimemachine.com...oneFreeTimeMachine.ics";, which reveals "http://windowsphone.promo.eprize.om/freetimemachine"; (still not working though)
3. There is "http://www.freetimemachine.com.../fulfillment/rules.pdf"; (still not working though) from eprize.com
4. More importantly "Open to residents of United States of America, excluding: New York, Florida, and Rhode Island, who are 14 years old or older. Sweepstakes ends 5/31/12."

If they have a time machine I'm gonna rush for it kill anyone in my way and go back in time and become rich and powerful with all my knowledge of the future.

If they had a time machine and that worked, you would already have it and you would already be rich and powerful....

Apple has time machine in OS X. Microsoft is clearly ripping Apple off here.

Clearly.


Funny joke, but you should clear that up for some others who might not get it.

it's just another english language fail.

it should be read "Free-time machine" and not "free Time-machine".

why am i the only one who sees this?

They could be referring to a time machine which is free or a machine that gives you more free time.

I think you're right. I'm guessing it's the latter as well.
