So I promised that Bag Week 2011 would be worth it. There were the naysayers, the no-no-never Nancies, the nattering nabobs of negativism, and the like but you stuck through Bag Week 2011 and now it’s nearly over. But before we go, we want to offer one final parting gift to you all – everyone except Adrian Scott, that is. Mr. Scott wrote, and I quote:

Poor dad. He’s always getting shafted when it comes to Father’s Day. Usually he gets a tie or a chess set or a fancy prize-winning goat (it was a weird year that year at the Biggs house, let me tell you). But does he ever get a full home gaming/3D video/Blu-Ray playing All-In-One gaming center? With speakers? And fancy lights?
Well now you can send Dad what he really wants. I’m going to run this… → Read More
The folks at Punchtab, eager as beavers to get their products into your hands, want to send you a new Nook. Why? They’re in love with you and you won’t accept their love, so they’re in the friend zone and you refuse to pay attention to their attempts to win your heart. It’s like 16 Candles only with start-ups.

A company called PunchTab wants to test their new contest entry system, appropriately-named the PunchTab widget. To that end, they’ve offered us the ability to give away a black 16GB Apple iPad Two (was there ever an iPad One?), some sort of new tablet computer for people who like that sort of thing. All the kids seem to want one, like the Teddy Ruxpin.

I was originally going to write something like “Weekend Giveaway: An iPod Classic Case Plus Something Else” and then make you guys read the whole post to find out that I was going to include a Blackberry Playbook in the prize and then you’d be angry and come to my house and stuff and nobody wanted that.

You may recall Shakespeare’s opinion of iPhone cases. I quote from his famous play, The Twelfth SIM Card:
If iPhones be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of them, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.

That breathes upon a bank of iPhones,
Stealing and giving odour! Enough; no more:
‘Tis not… → Read More
