Congratulations to “Dan” from KS, winner of the iPod Touch from TipsFor.us. Dan was one of more than 100 entries, but he was one of only a few who took advantage of all three entry methods (Form, Facebook, and Blog post). Obviously, it paid off for him.
Many thanks to all of you who entered. Stay tuned for future giveaway announcements, as we plan to host several more giveaways on TipsFor.us. What might we give away next? Maybe some RAM, a Macbook, or maybe some California IOUs? 🙂
If you want to try your luck at winning an iPod Touch, act fast! The TipsFor.us iPod giveway ends tonight (Sunday, 12 July 2009). All submissions must be received by 11:59 PM (PST). Thanks to all of you who have submitted so far. We’ve had a lot of interesting and creative submissions so far. Just be sure to include the correct code word in the entry form – a number of you added an incorrect word, and those entries must unfortunately be deleted.
Keep in mind that you can triple your odds of winning by both becoming a fan of TipsFor.us on Facebook AND also by writing a blog entry linking to our original giveaway post.
We’ll contact a winner on Monday, and that person will have 48 hours to respond before we choose a new winner. Don’t miss this opportunity! Good luck!
If you haven’t heard by now, TipsFor.us is giving away a brand new iPod Touch 8 GB.
There are multiple ways to enter the drawing, so be sure to take advantage of all of them in order to increase your chances of winning.
The contest ends on Sunday, July 12.
Good luck! The unopened iPod package has been sitting on my desk for over a week now. I’d love nothing more than to tear open the box and claim it for my own! Instead, I must continue to show great restraint and give it away to one of you lucky readers.
Don’t miss this opportunity to win this lovely gadget – the giveaway ends in one week!
Important: this contest is valid for USA residents only. Our apologies to our readers outside the US.
TipsFor.us is giving away a brand new iPod Touch! It’s beautiful.
This lovely gadget has 8 GB of storage – enough for roughly 1,750 songs, 10,000 photos, or 10 hours of video. It has a glorious 3.5-inch widescreen multi-touch display with 480-by-320-pixel resolution.
The iPod Touch is far more than just a music player. You can view photos, watch movies and YouTube, surf the web, check e-mail, play games, browse the App Store, and even read Amazon Kindle books.
Feeling adventurous? You can also install Skype/Fring on your new iPod Touch to make calls and send text messages.
Did we mention that it’s beautiful? Just look at it. Read more
For those of you just getting started with Ubuntu Linux (and for you seasoned veterans as well), don’t miss this opportunity to get your hands on a FREE pocket guide (PDF).
Download – Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference
Written by Keir Thomas (author of the venerable Ubuntu Kung Fu), the 170-page Ubuntu Pocket Guide is aimed particularly at Windows users curious about the Ubuntu operating system. It covers everything from installation and configuration to security and command-line tricks.
Here’s the Table of Contents:
Don’t feel like reading 170 pages on a computer screen? I don’t blame you. A print edition is available (Amazon link).
This is definitely a handy resource to keep near your desk, whether you’re installing Ubuntu for the first time or just need a refresher on some CLI magic.
To continue in the spirit of free products, Apress.com is giving away digital downloads of The Definitive Guide to Linux Network Programming.
The book has a list price of $49.99, and is available for free download here.
Update: the download link appears to be down on Apress right now (due to massive traffic). Here is a temporary download link.
For those of you who don’t like staring at computer screens too long, you can purchase a hard copy on Amazon for $35 (Amazon link). It has pretty good reviews on Amazon so far, so this 400-page book is certainly worth adding to your arsenal.
