Yay, we reached 1000 JoTs! [Smile]

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 the AWESOME prizes from super awesome folks like Woz, David Pogue, RadTech, SendStation, Freeverse, and Google!

(Update: It is looking less and less likely that Google will be able to donate anything for this contest. Despite assurances that they could, it seems the Swag Bureaucracy at Google is too mighty to overcome. I hope to be proved wrong, am keeping my geeky digits crossed, and hoping we get lucky.)
(Update #2 : our friends at Google were searching, searching, searching to find some goodies for us... but they have failed. [Frown] )

The contest page is here.

How do you enter?
Contest is now closed, but here is how you could have entered...
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 since 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, and fed to the Intergalactic Giant Chicken.

Note: In your Forum post, please name the prizes you'd like to win, if you are in fact chosen; i.e. First choice, second choice, third choice, etc. The first few winners selected will have their choice of prizes!

Good luck!

congrats firstly on your 1000th - so many great comics.

Drivemate Data Storage Module 2GB, BT500 Bluetooth Rechargeable 3-button mouse, google anything.

I guess any price would be a cool way to celebrate the occasion.

Wow, I can't wait to see what you're giving away for the 1024th comic. [Wink]

Let's see...

First choice is Sound Studio 3.
Second I think would be the Drivemate Data Storage Module 2GB.
Third would be the STM Large Loop Backpack in Gray / Black.
And fourth, the I-Sight.

Love the comics!! Love RSS so I can see them right away!
I like the back pack and the blue tooth mouse, and my geek husband would love the iPod kit. Of course I'd also be happy with a t-shirt.

Well, I'd really like the Drivemate thingy, but it looks like everybody wants that. I could also use that sweet ear-light-thingamabob, and backpacks are always handy! I love the little earBuddy, so put me in the running for that too. Some software from the awesome Freeverse'd be great, I just wish I had a 360 to get a copy of Marathon. I really should read more, so put me in for some iWoz and iPogue. Also, I'd love some Google-y prizes, you can't really go wrong there...

Thanks guys for a thousand of the best comics ever! [Big Grin]

Happy 1000th Anniversary, JoT! ;-)

Oh, and should you draw my humble name, I'd go for iWoz, the backpack, the iPhone manual, the drivemate, the iPod bundle or anything else you might have left. :-)

Cheers,
