It's time for March Madness at Blind bargains and the BB Qast. Yahoo! has recently made their ioS Tourney Pick'em March Madness app accessible, so we thought it'd be a great time to run our own pool. Plus, one lucky person may win a $64 gift certificate to A T Guys. That is, if you can beat Joe and J.J. with your picks. Here's how it works. First, Go to Yahoo! to sign up for the game. You can do this now, even though the teams have not been announced yet. Then, on March 13, go back and make your picks. We recommend you use the accessible iOS app though the web-based interface or Android app may work as well. The iOS one is app we know is accessible. Be sure to enter your bracket into the Blind Bargains pool. Note you can also enter the sitewide contest for a chance at $50,000. If your bracket is the best in our pool and also scores higher than Joe and J.J.'s bracket, the gift certificate is yours. Even if you're not a big sports fan, you should enter the contest. Sometimes, trained monkeys have submitted better ballots than huge sports fans, so anyone can win. Good luck.

It is our goal at Blind Bargains to report news events accurately as they happen. Last week, we originally reported that several Serotek employees had been fired when in fact they had resigned or otherwise left the company. The story was corrected later that evening after we were informed of our error. We know many of you rely on Blind Bargains for credible news coverage in the assistive technology industry and beyond, and so we apologize for falling short in this instance. There's a lot still to tell in the Serotek narrative, and as the story unfolds, we'll do our best to present the most accurate information possible. As always, if you find an error in a story we publish, please don't hesitate to send us a message.
