    That's one of those retarded sites that you have to complete xyz to earn a product. Half of the time you have to go to great lengths to fully qualify, the other half of the time they invalidate some of your "entries" for petty things.

    You WILL get a ton of spam if you sign up.

    Seriously??? Nothing in this world worth having is free. So I doubt it. His iPad really looks legit. But I am sure there are quite a few people with them already. People that work for UPS, or other companies who have handled them. Also he could have taken a video and just dubbed his voice over the audio. This has to be fake don't believe it.

    I doubt he actually "has" an iPad. Only a few select people/companies got an iPad to preview it. No company or person has one that they can sell or give away until Sat at the earliest.

    This guy has made other fake videos like this already.

    He just takes videos and records his voice over them. He doesn't really have an ipad.

    There was one of his other videos posted here a few days ago. The video he used was from engadet or gizmodo from the preview session after the keynote. He just took their video and recorded his voice over it to get people to think he made the video.

    It's all lies.

    I love how its called "Apple iPad Hands On Overview - Pros and Cons", but he only describes how amazing the iPad is and to click that stupid link.

    It's a total scam. He just doctored one of the release day videos and added his own voiceover.

    You can notice the table background is the same one from all the release day vids and you can also see someone elses hand reach in and demo something on the screen while he is supposedly using it.

    I'm pretty sure that that's a video of the iPad's periodic table app with that guy's voice over it. Most likely "sort of a scam", though I do know one person who has had good luck with those kind of sites. Still, I wouldn't advise giving away all of your information so you recieve spam in the mail and calls even if you use a different email address for this. I wouldn't recommend trying.

    I was looking at one of these iPad scam sites the other day, some of the 'promotions' you have to sign up for are nuts.

    Sure, signing up for Netflix and Gamefly and such are no big deal, but for their 'premium' promotions (which you have to do 2 of by the way) require you spending $1500 at like HOM Furniture or buying $2000 worth of airplane tickets from Expedia or something.

    Yeah...drop $3000 to try to get a free iPad...or just cough up the $500.:rolleyes:

    Lol, thats the exact same thing I thought when I first saw his page. Supposedly is a review but no where does he mention anything about the ipad specifically. If he had it then why not show off some of the cool things it can do?

    Simple, because he doesnt have one! All he talks about is how you can get a "free" ipad, which is bull crap. I really hope no one is dense enough to fall for such a stupid trick.
