I now own a Bonavita Thermal Brewer. I'm trying to decide if I should use it, or sell it. I haven't made coffee with a brewing machine at home for 3 years now. I've discovered that the process of manual brewing is as enjoyable to me as the end result...so a brewing machine seems almost like a betrayal.

Jack, I decided to use it. Mind sharing your brew dosage, water amount, and grind setting? I use a Virtuoso.

GIVEAWAY! 5 FREE POWERBAGS!

I love giveaways! And I love +Powerbag! So what could be better than giving away Powerbags?!? If you haven't seen it yet, +John Pozadzides just posted a contest to give away 5 FREE Powerbags! (https://plus.google.com/109938202835872364257/posts/J6kPiodsabE) But guess what?!? I've got 5 MORE FREE Powerbags to give away too! :)

So, we're going to do this just like John did. In order to enter you just need to do two things:
1) Have you got me in one of your Circles? Awesome!! Step 1 complete!
2) You've gotta Publicly SHARE this post.

And of course, if you also circle +Powerbag you'll have an additional chance to win! And if you do win, you get to pick out ANY Powerbag you want and they'll ship it to you anywhere (in the US or Canada at least)! That's right, you can peruse all of the options over on http://MyPowerBag.com.

And even if you don't win, they've got a special 15% discount set up just for Geek Beat fans (coupon code "geekbeat")!

If you don't know what a Powerbag is yet, watch this video that +John Pozadzides did. You'll see why we love them!

PS - Powerbag hasn't paid us a single cent! We love their products and we just think its great that they love US enough to let us give away some of their gear, and share a discount with our community.

IF Apple announces the iPad3 right now, here 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.

I'm giving away 5 FREE Powerbags!

Oh, have I got a fun little giveaway for you guys today! Our friends over at +Powerbag, who make some of the coolest backpacks on Earth, have given me 5 Powerbags (worth up to $179 each!) to just give away however I want! So, you KNOW I'm going to give them to you guys on Google+!

Here is all you need to do to win:
1) Have you got me in one of your Circles? SUPER! Step 1 complete!
2) You've gotta Publicly SHARE this post.

That's It! Simple, huh?

Ok, some of you know that I often give you a second chance to enter to win, so here it is - make sure and circle +Powerbag, and you've got an additional entry! :-) God, this contest is just too easy… And I'll announce the winners on Monday!

EDIT: Holy Jeepers Batman - a THIRD chance to win! +Cali Lewis has ANOTHER 5 FREE Powerbags to give away! See her post here: https://plus.google.com/103493459351957813291/posts/cWLDRDe4jnn

BTW, if you don't know what a Powerbag is yet, watch this video and you'll see exactly why you're gonna want one of these bad boys:

And if you DO win, you'll get to head over to http://MyPowerBag.com and choose your favorite bag and they'll send it to you anywhere in the Universe! Actually, I lied. You must have a shipping address in the US or Canada.

If you don't win, you can always use the super secret 15% off discount code "geekbeat" at checkout. It'll also get you free shipping!

PS - Powerbag hasn't paid us a single cent! We love their products and we just think its great that they love US enough to let us give away some of their gear, and share a discount with our community.
