I'm Giving Away a PAIR of Transporters!
If you haven't already seen the Transporter (http://geekbeat.tv/transporter), it's a unique new drive technology that lets you replicate all of your files (or just the ones you want) to other physical locations.  So you put Transporter "A" at home, and Transporter "B" at work.  They stay synced up through the InterTubez automagically!

Well, our friends over at the Transporter project gave me a PAIR to give away to one of YOU! :-)  Here's how you win:

1) Do you have me in a Circle? Yeah! Step 1 complete.
2) Circle +FileTransporter!
3) Publicly share this post.

You're done!!!

What, you want more chances to win? :-)  Ok, leave a comment below telling me what you'll do with a couple of these for another chance.  I plan to share my movies and stuff with family.  How about you?

WHAT? You still want MORE chances to win? :-P  Ok, well, +John Pozadzides is giving away another pair right here:
https://plus.google.com/109938202835872364257/posts/977yAQBQnqb

Of course, the best thing you can do is head over to the Transporter Kickstarter page and back the project! http://geekbeat.tv/transporter  I've already done it, and so have 342 other people!  They're 2/3rds of the way done!!!

PS - The giveaway is limited to the US.  Hopefully they'll have a successful Kickstarter launch and go International after that! :-D

PSS - You'll get yours after the development is complete.  So it'll take a couple months, but you'll be among the first to get one!!!

I have another iPad Mini to give away!!!  Who loves ya baby? ;-)

Our friends over at +WeatherCaster gave us an iPad to celebrate our naming WeatherCaster the top weather app, so of course we're giving it away! (As we often do.)

Here's how to win!

1) Download the free app for your iPad (if you have one)! Trust me, it's awesome! ==> http://geekbeat.tv/weatherapp
2) Make sure you have +WeatherCaster in a circle, oh and Me too so I can notify you if you win!
3) Publicly re-share this post in order to enter to win!

That's it!

By the way, WeatherCaster is only for US weather, so this contest is limited to the US. Sorry to all my international friends!  I still love you, you know that, right? :)

Of course, the lawyers spent all that time drafting rules, so if you want to read em, have at it!  http://geekbeat.tv/minithanks

UPDATE 11/16: We have a winner! Congratulations to +Chris Jarrett!

I bought OSX Lion and burned it to DVD so I can do a fresh install. I probably won't install until next week, however. Nothing too exciting to make me install it right away, but the price was right.

Thanks for the notes. I'm hoping to finally have time to do a fresh install on Friday. I'll be sure to let everyone know how it goes. Hopefully without issue....

Wanna Win a Brand New iPad Mini?!?

Well, I've got one right here in my hands that we'll be shipping to one of you on Friday!

You remember when I did the Top Weather Apps shootout a couple weeks ago?  Well, we named +WeatherCaster  the top app, and it caught their attention (as these things often do). :)  They were pleased and surprised, and in celebration they gave us an iPad Mini to give to one of YOU!

Entering to win is simple!

1) Download the free app for your iPad! Trust us, it's awesome! ==> http://geekbeat.tv/weatherapp
2) Make sure you have +WeatherCaster in a Google+ circle.
3) Publicly re-share this post in order to enter to win!

See how easy we make it!

UPDATE: Ok gang! We hear ya! If you DON'T HAVE AN iPad, you can still enter even if you can't yet download the app! (Just do #2 &#3)

If you didn't see the episode yet, watch below!

By the way, WeatherCaster is only for US weather, so this contest is limited to the US. Sorry to all my international friends!  I still love you, you know that, right? :)

And one last, little, tiny detail.  The lawyers made us link to the official terms.  If you need some lite reading before bed, here you go:  http://geekbeat.tv/minithanks

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

Anyone else surprised at the lack of HDHomeRun Prime reviews with only a short time until the "late July" public release? I assumed someone would have a pre-release review up by now.

Introduction
I primarily use Google+ to lurk and follow others who post on my favorite hobbies which are HTPCs and Genealogy.  Some of you might better recognize me by my typical handles of kingpumpkin or richardstw.

Sorry if you don't have any idea who I am and I have you in my circle. I treat Google+ like Twitter and I tend to follow people who I've seen say something interesting somewhere.

I have a beautiful wife and 3 small children ages 6, 3, and 3 (yes, they're twins).  All girls!!

I've lived in Indiana my entire life and currently reside in Indianapolis.

I'm a huge music fan.  My all-time favorite bands are Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam.
