The Joy of Tech reaches 1000. As a result, you get some free stuff!
Wow, we've reached our 1000th Joy of Tech comic! And we couldn't have done it without the support and loyalty of our fans. So what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway! And what a giveaway it is... it's our biggest ever, with over 66 winners! Check out all of these AWESOME prizes from super awesome folks like Woz, David Pogue, RadTech, SendStation, Freeverse, and
Our pal Steve Wozniak has graciously donated a copy of his autobiography iWoz, ... and yes, it's signed by Woz himself!
Our fave tech reporter, author, and all round neat-o geek David Pogue is also in on this giveaway! He's offering your choice of a signed David Pogue book... either his newest: iPhone, the Missing Manual, or his rare, hard to find, and most excellent techno-thriller novel... Hard Drive!
||And it gets even better! SendStation, those makers of quality iPod products, have very generously donated an incredible combo... Fifty lucky people will win a bundle of an earBuddy (the ultimate carrying case for your iPod earbuds), and a PocketDock Combo (Firewire and USB adapter for your iPod.) Whoa!
There's more! The awesome geeks at Freeverse are adding to the goodie bag too! They are giving away two copies of Sound Studio 3, their fantastic sound-editing software! In addition, they're are also giving away several of their great games, including the insanely great AirBurst Extreme (two copies!), Big Bang Brain Games (two copies!), Heroes of Might and Magic (two copies!), ToySight Gold (yay!), and Wingnuts 2! Plus, for any Xbox 360 users, our fave Mac developer and SuperFan zwilnik from Strange Flavour will add a couple of Spyglass Board Games codes (and maybe Marathon codes too!) Sweet!
And... lastly, just an update, our friends at Google were searching, searching, searching to find some goodies for us... but they have failed. It seems the Swag Bureaucracy at Google is too mighty to overcome. That's really too bad, a lot of our fans were really looking forward to the Google goodies we were told we would get. :-(

Easy! All you have to do is post a reply to this Forum thread, and you're in on the giveaway. Now to reward our long-time Forum members we thought we do the giveaway as such... new Forum members will get a chance to win, but Forum members who joined before August 24th 2007 will have twice as much chance to win. And, if you are a SuperFan, you can enter again in the SuperFan Forum and you get four times the odds to win! We'll randomly draw names from the people who post, and they will be our lucky winners! Giveaway ends on Sunday September 2nd at 8 PM Pacific. One entry, per person, per thread only please, or you will be disqualified.
Note: In your Forum post, please name the prizes you'd like to win, if you are in fact chosen. First choice, second choice, third choice, etc. The first few winners selected will have their choice of prizes!
