4. This company's website's traffic jumped eight fold with close to 250,000 hits following a television event which received lots of media attention. The product in question costs $28,000 and 276 people received it for free during the television event. This product now also features on the reality series "Survivor". Name the product and the television event?

Answer: Pontiac's G6 Sedan / Oprah Winfrey Show 19th season

5. What would you be doing if you have "MillionaireIM" in your AOL Buddy list?
Answer: In the 2004-2005 season of the programme (Who Wants to be a Millionaire) , the format of the game will change. (Note that some of these changes only apply to certain versions) .Also, after reaching the 25,000 level, contestants are given a new lifeline, "Switch the Question". It allows them to dismiss the current question and to play a new one. However, they will not have any lifelines used on the discarded question returned to them. Finally, the "Ask the Audience" lifeline has been expanded. Instead of just the studio audience giving answers, users of the AOL Instant Messenger (sometimes referred to as IM) can participate too. If they have the name "MillionaireIM" in their buddy list, then they will receive an instant message if a contestant uses his or her "Ask the Audience" lifeline. The message will contain the question, and four possible answers, and they will send their answer back. This is the first time in history that the public has been able to interact with a game show while it is being taped. When the tape is shown, the results of the poll will first show the studio audience's response, then the IM users' response. This has been done as an effort to get everyone more involved with the program, and to interest the producers in the show once again.
I don't know whether KBC when it resumes would have these changes as well.
