How to vote for your Idol like a pre-pubescent girl

Carly SmithsonTired of your fingers bleeding and still only getting 219 calls in for your favorite contestant each Tuesday night? Do you go to bed with hand spasms, because let's face it your fingers aren't as young as they used to be? Well, now you can still vote for your favorites like a teenager with more free time than you have left in the rest of your life without all the hassle and stress (do I sound like an infomercial yet?).

Gizmo5 is a software package that can be installed on your computer (XP, Vista and Mac!) as well as your mobile phone. A new contact is created named "Idol Voting." Simply select this contact and select 1 to cast 25 consecutive votes for your favorite Idol contestant automagically (I know what I said; it's magical to me!). I know it works because I tested it last week voting for Brooke and Jason and ... oh! ... um ... sorry about that, Carly fans. Well, you can still save your favorites this week. And your fingers, too.

PS: If someone at Gizmo5 is reading this, Carly was cut last week so you can remove her from your site. Cool?

AI should just limit the number of votes from one phone line and/or computer just like Dancing with the Stars does!!!! We don't need to hear how many millions of votes came in, especially since we know people are voting hundreds of time so it's not really a true count anyway.

This is the one time I pray that software is loaded with all forms of malware, virii and backdoors.

Doesn't AI have that disclaimer at the end of their broadcast about discounting voting blocks that use technological means? Don't know how they would figure that out, but... if they do, all your votes would be discounted.

of course you have to pay the regular fee for each vote. Somehow you forgot to mention that.

Thats only standard text messaging fees or if you use your cell phone to connect. AI doesn't charge anything to vote.
