buys the last 1000 PIXELS on MillionDollarHomePage

I got this release today about the last thousand pixels on the milliondollarhomepage being purchased. Amazingly I wrote about the wild fluctuations on the downside as a part of this auction. Now the auction which I witnessed with my own eyes as high as $152,100.00 dropped to $38,100 to a weight loss site.

I think a weight loss like this site is a great candidate to purchase these last few pixels as weight loss is a big business.

Perhaps the only surprise is that Vonage didn’t buy the pixels or even AT&T. Think about the publicity value of being written about so frequently as the winner of this auction.

How about a tie-in like this: Save millions with VoIP, see our ad on milliondollarhomepage. Hey, wait a minute. Perhaps Internet Telephony Conference & Expo should have purchased these pixels. Well, I guess there is always trumpingalex. I wonder if the founder of this site will cut us a break as I was the first to break the story about him.
