    Sure would be nice to have one of these things to play around with. I keep hearing that they are the greatest things since the millions of things that have been developed and invented since sliced bread.

    Here is my "official" entry. Sorry for repeating what I'd posted at the show thread, where I THOUGHT I was supposed to leave this.

    BRAIN FART!!! PPPppfffffffftttt!


    Hey guys!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the podcast. I listen to it via audio on my Zune HD while on the road or busy around the house. Good stuff and lots of fun.

    I would love to win an iPad. Pick me! Allow me to twist your arm

    Now, I already have an iPad. Its my first Apple product. I love it and I use it CONSTANTLY. I think its the neatest thing since chocolate pudding (I swear!). This is coming from a Windows/PC guy who has messed with computers since the late 70s/early 80s. Complete geek here. The iPad is nothing short of revolutionary, to say the least.

    If I won an iPad from Tipb, I would give it to my mother, who lives 10 hours north. My birthday is this month and I think it would be cool for me to give something to HER instead to celebrate! Shes in her late 60s and she is very intimidated and frustrated (learning curve + patience) with PCs. She got a hold of my iPad when I visited in June and become comfortable with it inside of fifteen minutes. She really seemed to enjoy it for the couple of hours she had it.

    Whats more important is the fact that she lives in a rural hilly area where cable or DSL broadband will probably never exist (theyre still on 26kbps dial up there, so short, very simple emails between us happen only rarely). BUT there is a very strong 3G signal from an AT&T data tower on the ridge near her house! I can see her relaxing in her cozy chair by the fire, sipping her favourite tea and enjoying my poetry, Facebooking with friends and family, watching funny videos, reading a book, find recipes and crafts ideas, doing crosswords or looking at some pics from my nature/astronomy photography hobby. I think it would open up a world for her!

    So thats my goal: get her an iPad so she can keep in touch with me, have some fun for a change and do the things shes interested in doing. We would then get rid of the ol laptop by giving it to someone needy who doesnt have a computer at all.

    Keep up the good work, guys! YOU ROCK!

    I REALLY NEED AN iPAD so I CAN START MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS. I WANT TO USE MY iPAD AS THE SCREEN TO REMOTE CONTROL MY CAMERA. BUT ALL THESE EQUIPMENT IS JUST TOO EXPENSIVE. A FREE/SPONSORED iPAD WILL BE A BIG HELP PLUS I CAN ALSO STAY UPTO DATE WITH ALL THE SITES I FOLLOW.

    FACEBOOK, TWITTER, TiPb, SO ON.

    I have an iPad and this would be a great gift for my wife. You will save my Xmas with this as a gift under the tree (more than likely my 4 year old son will take it from her and play hours of plants vs zombies and cut the rope).

    Fortunately (or unfortunately in this case) I don't have any tear-jerker stories to share with you as to why I so VERY much would like to win this iPad, so I will have to share the only motivation I feel comfortable with - an HONEST one:

    My boss recently bought the 16Gig version of this most adorable plaything, and ever since then I have been consumed with an overpowering desire to own one of these magnificent little accessories! Being an Apple Macbook owner, I consider myself to be one of Apple's most devoted fans and have consequently made it my duty to act as an Apple Advocate & Advertisement to anyone and everyone willing to listen! As with my finely honed Apple Advertising skills, I firmly believe that - by winning this precious iPad - I will have no choice but to become an (intense & interesting) iPad Icon...

    Yours in Apple:
    Yodanya : )

    I would LOVE a new iPad! It would make the ideal christmas present for my newborn son who is in another country to me. Would make it a lot easier to stay in touch & be able to respond to any issues at a moment's notice......... With both of us then having an iPad the onyl thing I'd ever have to turn my laptop on for is the Skype video calls!

    There is one good reason: So my fiancee can play her Fruit Ninja on a big screen. I love her very much and that would be one hell of a christmas present!

    By the way, great giveaways guys!

    Pleas pick me! My husband is very tolerant of my obsession with my iPad, but I would LOVE to give him an iPad of his own! TiPb is my favorite iPad podcast, and I'd love for my husband to join your audience. Oh - and I love Waze on the iPad. I use it all the time.

    I've been busy setting up iPads for lots of other people (since they're so hard to setup - whatever) and I bought one for my wife for Christmas but there's been no iPad love for me. I've really love to have one for my own use. Thanks in advance!

    I have an iPad but I would love to give one to my 76 year old mother for Christmas. I don't have the cash so this is my only chance. When she plays with mine, I can hardly get her to give it up!!
