We're giving away 40…that's right… 40 of these iSimple megaPhones that improve your iPhone or iPod's volume (www.geekbeat.tv/isimple). Here's what you do to win:

-- Do you have me in a circle?  Check step one off the list!
-- Publicly share THIS post in your G+ stream, and you're done with step 2!

That's it! You can get all the details at www.geekbeat.tv/contest. You do have to have an address in the United States. We'll pick a winner in a week… it's going to take us a while to count to 40. 1….2…3…uh, what's next??

Oh… and if you don't win, you can always pick one up here: http://bit.ly/isimple-megaphone
The megaPhone by iSimple is a cool little device designed with special acoustics to boost volume.

Hmm, can't hurt to enter twice.

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.

I DO NOT condone piracy. I DO feel this way every time I watch a movie. What's worse is when my movie has problems playing because of DRM, but when I strip the DRM from it it plays just fine!

I also am tired of all the extra non-skippable crap. I paid for it already, why are ads paying for it again? Either give me a paid-for-by-ads movie for FREE, or let me watch the movie I paid for already!

Thanks +Ronald Smith, I hadn't seen that before, and it's exactly how I feel.

Today's LivingSocial (like Groupon) deal is for 5 Big Macs and 5 large fries for $13. Not bad. Please use my link if you get it so I get credit, if 3 people use my link and buy it, I get mine for free.
https://share.livingsocial.com/deals/190802?ref=conf-jp&rpi=38492240 I'll update this if I notice I got 3 referrals, so if you want to post your referral link too then once my 3 are done everyone else can click your link, and so-on.

in for another contest I probably won't win :P I do appreciate the humor +John Pozadzides shares daily (usually).
 
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.

This looks awesome! Doubtful, but hopeful I win one :)

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:
http://youtu.be/Dz4keiRYois

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.

Wow, this was definitely worth watching! A very pleasant, inspirational short film. Apparently they're working on extending it to a feature film.
