Life Scoop: Tweet your favorite post for a chance at an iPad! (No joke!)

My husband -- the one who can sleep till lunch (a late lunch!) on weekends -- has a date at 7am this Saturday. With the hallway outside the Portland Apple Store. To get his iPad.

You may not be as fanatical as Rael...but are you the least bit curious? I know I am. Looks to be an interesting tool for parents, and I can't wait to hear all the iPad-related parent hacks that start flowing in. Why am I telling you this? Because you have a chance to win one of these lovelies!

As many of you know, I have been writing posts for the Intel-sponsored site Life Scoop -- a site devoted to "tips for a connected lifestyle." Over the next four weeks, Life Scoop is giving away four iPads -- one each week . All you need to do to enter is to:

  • follow @LifeScoop on Twitter
  • Tweet a link to your favorite Life Scoop post with #mylifescoopfreeipad included in your tweet

Here are quick links to my Life Scoop posts, although there are many more that are worthy of sharing. Each post has a "retweet" button that makes entering a snap. You can enter once per day, and winners will be announced on the next four Wednesdays! See Life Scoop for details.

I'm certainly interested, but tell me, is the offer open only for North America or would you post it all the way across the big pond to Europe, if say, the winner lived there?

Oh, wait, that *was* your 1st April post....darn...

This seriously is not a joke! Ha! I don't see any residence restrictions in the official rules, but I will check to be sure.

mummyjaan: I'm afraid the giveaway is open to US residents only. Official word: "My LifeScoop iPad Contest is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least thirteen (13) years old at the time of entry." Sorry about that.
