Would You Like A Private Carribean Island?
Google Omid Kordestani, Senior vice president, world sales and field operations at Google, and you might see the AdWords ad pictured on the right. I saw it, and if you hit refresh a few times, it should pop up. I clicked on the ad (what can I say? It's compelling!) and it brings you to halfmoonisland.com, a site about Half Moon Cay, a 9.2 acre island in the Carribean, two miles from Guanaja. It looks like a really cool island, complete with buildings, boat houses, a power station, and a beach party area. They even let you keep the ice cream making machine and the TV! If this is on the up-and-up, it has to cost a fortune, maybe around the price of a 3-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. Anyway, you might just see that ad on this page soon, which would be hilarious.
