TiPb Countdown to iPad Give-Away!


TiPb is giving away an iPad!

It's officially March now and Apple still hasn't announced the exact day we'll be able to get our hands on their magical new device, the iPad! So, to help us countdown to the big day, we're running a little give-away. Actually, an iPad sized give-away! Every week from now until the iPad is officially released, the iMore Store is going to give away awesome iPhone accessories, and every time you enter the give away of the week, you get another entry into our big iPad give away as well. And don't worry, we'll clearly tag every qualifying weekly give-away with "iPad Give-Away Qualifier" so you can be extra certain you're all nice and entered.

If that's too complicated, let us simplify -- enter as many TiPb give aways as you can and you'll have the best chance possible at the iPad. Clear?

The first qualifying give-away will be posted tomorrow, but you may just want to head on over and subscribe to our TiPb YouTube channel now, if you know what we mean...

Full iPad give-away details after the break!

TiPb Countdown to iPad Give-Away!


2busy: I'm pretty sure you can't enter yet. Not until their first give-a-way is posted tomorrow.

Oh god seriously! I want one soooo badly!!! I wish I could even afford one for when they do come out :(

Since it doesn't say it's US exclusive, I'll assume we, from across the pond, can also take a chance...

@Joe- I'm always ready to hook a brother ip, but when it comes to free iPad's, seriously blood you gotta get behind me. I don't even know what the blanking rules are yet, but I'm sayin' 'outta my way, mere fanboys(girls)'.

The winners of these things always have obscure names who we've never seen here before, and never see again. I'm a regular... so I don't stand a chance. :(

I hope you will all allow me to pop to the front of the queue, I have a rare condition (gimmegadgetitus) which can only be alleviated by a short couse of ipad therapy. Thank you friends you are all so kind

@pivale -- prize is a US Apple Store gift card. I guess it doesn't matter where you live, but you probably can only redeem the card at a US Apple Store.

While I have been generally lukewarm on the iPad, one iPhone app has warmed me up to the iPad a bit -- Civilization Revolutions. While I still cannot stand the iPhone for twitch games, the touch screen was made for turn-based strategy games. iPad-designed implementations of this genre are going to be ridiculously fun.
(in other words, count me in!)

I'm planning on two 3G 32GB models, $499 gift card sure could help!! Can't wait! How do I sign up?!

Having one would be great! With nice cloud services like on live coming up and if they come out with a (likely jailbreak) app for remote desktop on pc and mac this thing would be the ultimate divide for me! Now only if I could pair it with my iPhone so I have 3g for no extra cost...

"Qualifier" question: In most give aways, there usually is a qualifier such as a post to the forum, subsribing to YouTube channel, becoming a fan on Facebook, or follower in Twitter. Do my associated accounts all need the same user id? Or is there a settining in the TiPb to keep these all synced?

Hook me up PLEEEEEAAAAASSSEEEEE !!!!! I used to be crackberry addict but now I'm one of the good guys , hook me up with an ipad so I can rub into all my crapberry addicted friends !! Love TIPB !!

I would love to have an iPad, but I can't buy one ATM because I am currently waiting for a MacBook Pro refresh.

Who wouldn't want to win and iPad...! I never win anything! I'm gonna buy one anyways but fRee sounds like a better price to me...!!!

The iPad will really be a new unique device. Thank god for Apple for evolving our technology :)
Winning would be nice :P

I love TiPb!! 
I came here twice a day with my iPhone.
If I get this iPad I would come here 5 times a day!! 
I am looking forward to viewing this blog with BIGGER Glossy screen!!

i cant wait for the release. please tell apple to stop making us wait.
numbers app will be great for work.

This would be the perfect wedding present to my fiance! He's always working and need some new technology :) We are getting married next year and maybe this would be a helpful little gadget for him.

I would like to have an iPad also.I doubt I'll be able to afford one at launch, so this would help out a great deal.

I never had Apple devices. Maybe apple Ipad would be my first....?
I want to win it.................

I want INE iPad!! :'-(
Hey Friends,
Check out this new site I found called GiftMonkey.com. They give away free high end Laptops, Video Game Consoles, iPods, Plasma TVs, and they even have GPS Navigation Systems.
This site is different from all of those others. They don't give you a time limit, and they don't make you signup for 10 sponsors yourself. All you have to do is try one of their sponsored offers like eBay (which doesn't cost anything), refer your friends, and they ship your free gift to your door, also free!
Follow my link to get started: http://www.GiftMonkey.com/?s=176291
Please help for my college... Thank you.

I like the entry method, multiple chances to win something at least. Even though they all go towards the ipad there are other chances to win also. To cool!

Hi there! What a super terrific giveaway! Please count me in. I'm following you on twitter, joannaonthelake and I am tweeting for you! Thanks so much!

Im very glad it is a gift card, in case i actually get the iPad for free from Lockerz, i can just get lots of accecories from Apple with this!

Just thinking about getting an iPad for free leaves me with nothing to say.At least nothing clever or funny,besides - OH YEAAH!

When I win, I will tell everybody I know about how awesome this blog is! Wait... heck... I'll do it anyways!

At first I wasnt interested in the iPad, but everyday I am getting more and more interested. I sure wouldnt mind a free iPad

I'm not sure if I already made a comment on this post. I just have to say that tipb is the only ipad giveaway I trust. I commented everywhere tipb is. I hope that enters me as many times possible. Good luck everyone. I hope whoever wins really needs it like I do

Sweet! Wasn't planning on getting one, but I'd love one if it's free! and if I start developing again then having one could certainly come in handy :D

I need help understanding this ipad give-away thing. So is it every time you participate in one of the qualifiers it ups your chances of winning? Example: I leave two comments. Is that better than leaving 1 comment?

Let me win please or my parole agent is gonna violate me for not providing iPad upon demand!!!!!

I think I read in another post that it's gonna be today (Tues Mar 30). I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath. Heck, I'm just glad I was able to reserve one before they delayed the shipping date for preorders :) Good Luck to All!

TIPB rules always giving out a prize I love it Keep it up guys. I myself would love to have one of the many Ipad that will be given away by TIPB.
