Forget Holiday Shopping! Win the GRAND PRIZE – HighTechDad’s Gift-a-Day Giveaway (Day 5)

In Apple, Cellular, Consumer Electronics, Gadgets, General, Giveaway, iPhone by Michael Sheehan

Boy, this giving away of free stuff is hard work (actually it is, writing posts and all)! But it sure feels rewarding. While I would have loved to have kept many of the items that I have been giving out, there are many people out there who deserve it for one reason or another. So that is why I’m doing this. Again, I’m not in this for anything really. You don’t have to follow me on Twitter (I want that process to be as organic as possible). Sure, I ask for some traffic to my blog, but that will be gone after I give all of the stuff away. However, it would be great if you read through some of my content and perhaps subscribe to my RSS feed and come back and visit.


This won’t be the last giveaway that I do, they are pretty cool actually so be sure to check back regularly. Anyway, enough we my soapboxing. You want to see what the GRAND PRIZE consists of…well here you go! Oh, and YES, you get EVERTHING that is listed below! So forget about all of the holiday shopping. If you win this, you are done!
