Tippecanoe and iPad 2

This is Hal from Team Swagbucks, and last week I was in Austin, Texas for South by Southwest Interactive, a five day event featured the latest in technology, social media and software development. Obviously no high tech event would be complete without Apple having a presence, so it was no surprise when they opened a pop-up Apple Store at 6th and Congress filled to the gills with the iPad 2.

I actually went into one of the stores late Friday night, and it was literally a dance party – Apple employees were cheering, dancing and using their iPhones as strobe lights. After getting a hands-on look at the iPad 2, I could understand the celebration – with two cameras (one front-facing for use with the FaceTime app) and a lighter, sleeker design, Apple had found a way to improve upon the groundbreaking original iPad, which I proudly own and use regularly.

Since I’m willing to wager that most of you were not at SXSWi, we’re giving you the chance to win your own iPad 2 through our Limited Time Swagstakes. It costs 30 Swag Bucks for a single entry – not cheap, but well worth taking a shot at winning this awesome tablet device. If you’ve got the reserves, I’d recommend snagging a bunch of entries all at once – as TSG often says, it increases your chances of winning and saves you some Swag Bucks in the process.

Who knows what cool items will be on sale next year at SXSWi. iPad 3, anyone?
