Thank you all for entering and for your patience. A winner was selected by random.org. however, they did not respond within 72 hours per the contest rules. Thus, the second place entrant was contacted and they have claimed their prize: #11, Tara from CA! Congrats to Tara and I hope you enjoy your new Ipod Touch.
How seriously excited was I when the good people at Intuit contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out their new Mint.com Mobile application and would I like an Ipod Touch to try it out on? Oh, and, would I like another Ipod Touch to give away to one of my loyal fans? I think of an Ipod Touch as a cross between and Iphone and an Ipod. You can download music, tv shows, movies and applications (apps) and have them all available on the touch screen right in your hand.
