Want to win a new iPad?
 
IF Apple announces the new iPad today... I'll give one away!

UPDATE! IT was announced! I'll order it today, they ship on March 16th so when I get it, I'll send it to the winner!

Here is how to enter:

1) You gotta have me in a Circle. Got that? Cool.
2) Publicly share this post!

That's it! So, if you want to be one of the first people to get your hands on an iPad3 here is your first chance!!! I'll announce the winner one week from today.

Oh, and this is only for US and Canada folks. Sorry! I love you guys across the pond but shipping is very, very difficult and expensive for these types of things.

PS - For those of you who are skeptical, YES - I really am giving away the new iPad. And +Cali Lewis and I give away stuff all the time. Most of the time we get things donated because of our show (GeekBeat.TV), but in this case I'm paying for the new iPad out of my own pocket and one of you lucky souls will win it. Enjoy!

PS Again! - I got the order in! Here's a sneak peak: https://plus.google.com/109938202835872364257/posts/P9RQ38Li5aB

Ok, I've got one extra Amazon Kindle FIRE left, and its too late to return it. So I'm giving it away!

How to win the brand new, unopened Amazon Kindle FIRE in only two steps:
Step 1) Do you have me in one of your circles? Great. Check that one off the list...
Step 2) Publicly SHARE this post.

That's it! You're entered to win, and I'll ship it to you ANYWHERE.

Wait, you want more chances to win? Ok, I'll tell you what:
- One extra entry if you leave a comment telling me WHY you want it.
- One extra entry if you Subscribe to our Livid Lobster newsletter!

You'll find the newsletter subscription form here: http://lividlobster.com/

I'll announce the winner on Geek Beat LIVE on Friday Jan 6 (basically in a week), and then here on Google+. Good luck to all!

PS - Damn, I love to give stuff away. Wait till you see what I'm planning in the new year... ;-)

Playing Violent Video Games Good For Your Eyes!
via: http://goo.gl/WRXDQ

Parents of young children might find it hard to believe, but playing video games could be good for your eyes. Just ten hours of gaming for four weeks dramatically improved the vision of young men and women who as babies were almost blind.

After 40 hours of playing a violent video game, they were able to read two extra lines on an eye chart. The men and women studied were born with cataracts in both eyes and as babies could see light but not detail. Although their cataracts were removed, their vision did not return to normal. When they were aged between 19 and 31, they took part in the study, which involved playing an action game in which they took on the role of a solider shooting the enemy or a gunman firing at aliens. Some saw improvements in vision after just 10 hours. After 40 hours, they able to see further down the eye chart, be better at distinguishing the direction of a movement and at telling faces apart.

The study shows violent games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 were best at helping former cataract sufferers' vision improve.

Story
Introduction
I'm a pretty simple guy. I love to code. My spare time finds me buried in a new tech manual trying to learn the next new thing. The only thing I love more than code would be my wonderful wife and son! They are my world. :)
