    Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

    Help! Rene was typing out an URGENT instant message using iPhone uber-IM client, BeeJiveIM ($15.99 - iTunes link):

    Stay connected to all your instant messaging buddies anywhere you go! BeejiveIM keeps you in touch with your friends on AIM/MobileMe, MSN/Windows Live, Yahoo!, GoogleTalk, Facebook, MySpace, ICQ and Jabber all at the same time, all on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
    But heres the thing Rene was too late. Something crazy happened, he lost his grip on his trusty iPhone 3G, and now hes scrambling to get it back. This is where the help comes in. Actually, the where is the help. This is our:

    • BeeJiveIM Green Screen Challenge!


    Weve provided the image (a PNG file) but we need YOU to provide the background. (Specifically, take the image and add a background to it in Photoshop or the image editor of your choice!). Show us where Rene is where he lost his grip on his iPhone while desperately trying to finish his IM. The more creative, the better. The funnier, the better. The more spectacular, the better. You get the idea and if we choose your entry, you get a one of five (5) free copies of BeeJiveIM.

    So reply to this post and attach the image with your background to show us just what in the world (or other worlds?) is happening to poor Rene!

    Using the Matrix Name Generator, Rene's Matrix Name is Retro. So here he is with Neo taking on Agent Smith. My sense is that using the iPhone Retro, takes out Agent Smith saving the day, though altering the ending a bit.

    Rene, being the multi-tasker he is, IMs with one hand while on his way to bowling a perfect game with the other. Unfortunately, in the tenth frame, he doesn't see someone else's ball left on the approach and trips on it.
