  11. Kel says:

    Hey John, I like the idea of winning an iPad.

    Question, wasn’t it this sort of stuff where you ask for link backs that got you in trouble and banned from Google a few years ago or was it the you link to me and I link to you posts that did it?

  12. chester says:

    Sure, I’ll write a blog post about that. I was ready to give a lot more than that to get my hands on one so this is a no brainer. I better win!

  13. The price is great. Surely many people want the ipad.

    1. Yes everyone is keeping an eye on iPad …

      This is amazing product by Apple no doubt about this.

  14. Marc says:

    I see no point to this iPad thingy. Unless your a chic with a purse. But I still wouldn’t mind having one.

    1. Yea, I haven’t really figured out if it’s worth getting yet, there doesn’t seem much of a point to it.

  15. S Ahsan says:

    A great contest to win the douchepad 🙂

    1. I haven’t heard it called the douchepad. Ha!

    are the comments moderated?

    1. Jerick Mac says:

      Hello, here is my entry: Thanks for the chance. I’ll blog about this on my other blogs too.

      http://www.rickspot.com/2010/01/free-apple-ipad.html

      1. You pick the right URL.

        And make the attractive title as well and do social bookmark it.

  19. WooHoo! I’m in.

    I’ll get to work immediately. One question: Do blog comments count for anything? Now, I’m not talking about spammy, off topic comments, but about ones that are on, say, contest blogs.
