I feel more proud to have voted in this poll than in our recent presidential election. That's worth an iPad mini, right?

ShadowReaperX33 says:

I know the chances of winning are slim, but every vote counts. Whether it be for your favorite blog site, or a presidential election, it still matters. What it important is that your voice is heard.

rchartier says:

Funny how no one reads. Commenting here doesn't enter you in the contest. hah

D.Anderson says:

The mini is better than I ever expected! That is my choice for my first iPad.

Book Writer says:

The best device (of tons) was announced at WWDC and that was the new macbook pro "retina". I have one, it's great!
The best news was on how reporters got hold of the Mountain Lion story all the way back in February. And it was great cause no one was suspecting it and the hit story was the iPad 3.
The best app announced was Angry Birds star wars!
And the best accessory for 2012 was the Big JAMBOX. oh yeah.
