Microsoft operating its Free-Time Machine in 3 cities today
With the Nokia Lumia 900 officially on store shelves, Microsoft is taking to 3 different cities today to promote the handset and help people add a little more time to their day. Microsoft launched FreeTimeMachine.com a few days ago but its exact meaning was a bit of a mystery.

Microsoft has installed Free-Time Machines in Chicago, San Francisco, and New York. They will in operation from 8 AM to 6 PM local time today. Microsoft’s blog describes the Free-Time Machines like an ATM, “Only instead of cash, these things spit out prizes that will save you time—stuff like free grocery deliveries, cleaning and dog-walking services, and access to personal concierges. Or the ultimate time-saving tool—a new Windows Phone.”

Each location will also feature a special guest. In San Francisco, Vernon Davis of the 49ers will be on hand to give one winner some extra help for the day, Chicago will be treated to Top Chef winner and James Beard Award-nominee Stephanie Izard who will dish out free time and food, and New York will feature reality TV celebrity star personality Kourtney Kardashian who will be providing one "lucky" winner with a day with Kourtney Kardashian that will include access to her hair stylist, makeup artist, car service, and a personal shopper from her clothing boutique, DASH.

If you’re in one of the participating cities, head on over to Bryant Park or Madison Square Park in NYC, John Hancock Plaza or Pioneer Court in Chicago, or Union Square in San Francisco sometime before 6 tonight to see what kind of prize you can collect and be sure to let us know in the comments below what you won.

Funny thing is, Microsoft's Windows Mobile itself belongs IN a time machine.

YOU need to take a time machine if you're not even awareof the fact that "Windows MOBILE" was put to sleep in 2009. This is "Windows PHONE", a completely new and different operating system.

Nice try, but you failed. Or you were right, since Windows MOBILE is indeed dead since three years back.

Windows PHONE, however, is not.

This is cool and all, but eventually Microsoft/Nokia are going to have to start selling some Windows Phones instead of giving them away...

I wish they'd have that in a few more cities... I already have my Lumia 900, but I wouldn't mind trying to win another, or other goodies, lol
