    Tweeting (@clooneygal) and following on Facebook Thanks!

  4. I would love to give my Father (he is 83 years young) this iPad because he is so intrigued and interested in technology and it would give him such freedom to explore what only he can dream about! Thank you!

  5. 1) Following on Facebook and I shared the giveaway on my wall (Michelle Hudak)
    2) Following on Twitter @auntiethesis and I tweeted:

    I’ve wanted an iPad since Apple first released it. I’m an avid book reader and I’d love to take my library with me wherever I go. No laptop needed; the iPad would be my on-the-go-slide-into-my-bag email and internet connection. I know I’d be taking the iPad with me wherever I go; it would be my constant companion.

  6. If I won the iPad2 I’d use it to FB, surf the web, read, and play apps.

    I “liked” you on FB and shared.
    I follow you on twitter and retweeted @618mom23boys

  7. I would use the ipad for so many great things. I would use it as a learning tool for my children. I would use it for facebook, twitter, and surfing the web. Games, Photos, Videos.

  8. I don’t own an iPad and would love to have one. I would use it primarily for reading ebooks and social networking for another. Thanks for the opportunity! Tweeted @Phoenixx138

  9. I would use it everyday in every way it could be used. I am a sales rep and would use it to show presentations, product updates, etc. What a dream….

  10. My mother lives 2300 miles away. She has never met her first born grandson, due to severe financial issues including bankruptcy. My son is now 16 months old and has yet to know his grandmother face-to-face. I plan to fly him over to her this coming summer, but I would really like her to have an iPad so that we can facetime eachother and she can see him live and in action. This gift would be an incredible surprise and a wonderful present for Christmas. Thank you so much for your giveaway.

  11. I would use this iPad for several reasons. I am currently attending BYU and am taking notes the old fashion way. I would use it to take notes and keep better track of them. I would also use it to give presentations and access email for work. I would download movies to allow my nieces and nephews to watch as we made the long drive from Salt Lake City to my families cabin in Wyoming. The iPad 2 would be a huge benefit to me and my family.

  12. I would use it for my family. We are always fighting over usage on our 1 computer, and it would help out. We’ve always wanted an ipad! I had an iPod touch once, but my 10 yr old son and I were in a store that ended up being robbed at gunpoint & we were individually robbed as well. We also have family halfway across the country & it would be a great device to help us keep in touch. It would really help my son in his school work as well. I also have to admit, I do miss Angry Birds!

  13. I would give the Ipad to my 16 year old daughter, she has always wanted one and is doing very well in school. Followed andTweeted on twitter @andreama13, liked and shared on facebook

  15. I would give this iPad to my youngest daughter who just started college with plans of being a Physician’s Assistant. This would come in handy for her to use in class taking notes (via an cool app that I found) or just for down time… when she needs a break and wants to play games or check her email. Thanks for the chance! Following on FB as Deb Jacobs and on twitter as @debralu.

    It might save my crazy life!~

  100. It’s not a matter of “deserving” an iPad, it’s more that not only is it a fun device but also can do many of the things you use a computer for. My home computer is dying, so it’d be nice to replace it with an iPad.

  101. I did both FB (Pam Gorall Angelo) and twitter (luckymomx4)! I would use it for sweeping, tweeting, Facebook, music, reading and all around fun stuff! Happy New Year!

    iPad Versus the iPhone: Why I Don’t Need Both–Yet
    While the iPad can do a lot of things the iPhone can’t, I don’t need to own both devices–but you might.

    By Ginny Mies, PCWorld Apr 3, 2010 9:25 pm
    iPad Release Day

    iPad as E-Reader: Glaring Problems, Promising Apps
    iPad Versus the iPhone: Why I Don’t Need Both–Yet »
    What’s Missing: 5 Things the iPad Lacks »

    One of the biggest misconceptions about the Apple iPad is that it is essentially a larger iPhone or iPod Touch (I’ve also heard the term “iPhone on steroids” thrown around). This is simply not true: The iPad and iPhone are completely different beasts when it comes to hardware, software, and what you can do on each device. That said, the two devices do can perform a lot of the same functions: Both allow you to play games, browse the Web, send e-mail, watch videos, and listen to music.

    So if you’re already an iPhone owner, do you need the iPad too? The answer depends on how you currently use your iPhone–and on what you want out of the iPad. Think of it this way: If you’ve ever found yourself wanting more from your iPhone, you might consider investing in an iPad. Do you watch a lot of videos on your iPhone? If so, you’ve probably wished that the display were larger. Are you a gamer? iPad games blow iPhone games out of the water.

    My conclusion: I’m an iPhone 3GS owner. And at the moment, I’m not rushing to the store to buy an iPad–though I’m open to changing my mind. But don’t let my indecisiveness sway you. Consider these factors.
    Price: Deep Pockets Required

    For obvious reasons, the iPad is a much bigger investment than the iPhone 3GS. Pricing depends on the amount of storage the iPad includes, and on whether it has support for 3G networks. An iPad equipped only with Wi-Fi connectivity costs $500 (16GB), $600 (32GB), or $700 (64GB). The Wi-Fi-plus-3G version, available later this month, will cost $130 more at each size–$630 (16GB), $730 (32GB), and $830 (64GB). Of course, if you get the 3G version, you’ll also have to pay for a data plan–either $15 a month for 250MB of data, or $30 a month for unlimited data.

    By comparison, the iPhone 3G is $100 while the newer and faster iPhone 3GS starts at $200 (with a two-year contract). Unlimited 3G data plans for the iPhone cost $30 as well on top of your voice and text rates. Call me cheap, but the thought of paying for two separate data plans makes me shudder.

    Be prepared to shell out a lot of money for content, too: My PCWorld colleagues who picked up iPads today have already put significant dents in their wallets by purchasing apps, which range in price from free to $20–a bit more expensive than the equivalent iPhone apps, typically. And if you plan on scooping up books through Apple’s iBooks Store, expect to pay around $12 to $15 (though there are a few cheaper titles, as well as free iBooks). As an avid reader and a fan of ridiculous iPhone games, I don’t think I’d be able to support my habit on the iPad.
    Hefty Hardware

    Another thing to consider is how you’re going to tote the 9.6-by-7.5-by-0.5-inch-thick iPad around. Unless you invest in a pair of iPants, you can’t exactly toss it in your pocket. And I’m not a fan of hauling a lot of stuff around on my person, so the iPhone is a better match for me. Though 1.5 pounds doesn’t seem like much weight, I think carrying the iPad around all day might take a toll on my shoulders. Also a protective case is a must: Do not throw this thing unprotected into your backpack among your other junk. The display can crack and the back scratches easily. Don’t believe me? Check out our iPad Stress Test video. I’m constantly dropping my iPhone, so I’m afraid of how I’d handle the iPad.

    On the upside, the iPad’s multimedia features trump the iPhone’s. Obviously, watching videos is superior on the iPad’s 9.7-inch display. And have you ever tried listening to music via your iPhone’s external speakers? Music sounds weak and slightly tinny–definitely not ideal for an audiophile like me. I was pleasantly surprised by the iPad’s speakers, however. My music sounded loud and the quality was pretty clean.

    Also, while I’m satisfied with Web browsing on the iPhone, it’s a pleasure to be able to comfortably view a full page on the iPad.
    Native Applications: Better on the iPad

    The iPhone and the iPad have many of the same core native apps (the iPhone runs iPhone OS 3.1, while the iPad runs iPhone OS 3.2), but a few of the iPad’s have been optimized to take advantage of the bigger screen. The e-mail application, for example, in landscape mode shows recent messages and a search bar at the left, and displays the selected message at the right–a useful layout that simply isn’t possible on the iPhone’s smaller screen. The Photo Viewer is equally cool: The app lets you preview many more images, more easily than on the iPhone. There are also more ways of viewing your images on the iPad, including some cool slideshow options. I also love the way the contacts application resembles a physical address book.
    Cooler Apps

    No question, apps optimized for the iPad look incredible.

  111. What I would do if I won the iPad2? Definitely give it to my daughter to use for school. Here next semester classes are REALLY heavy subjects so this would be a nice treat instead of a heavy laptop to carry around with those heavy tomes! Why she is taking such heavy classes before transferring in the Fall is beyond me (ok I know why) but she will be one BUSY Bee before she finishes the Spring Semester.

  112. Hi guys! Winning an iPad 2 would mean everything to me – I’d use it everyday for presentations at work, planning my self improvement regime (I’ve already quit smoking! :D) and keeping myself and my family entertained for when I travel to show family photos. I would love and cherish my iPad!

  117. I am always on the go, and I laptop is just a bit much for traveling, an ipad would be a great way to work while on the road maybe even watch movies or read a good book without carrying around a bulky computer!

  118. I would be able to do more school work on the go, I also would not have to use a shared computer with the family.. Thanks for the opportunity Facebook as Michael Wright, twitter @mwright199…

  120. It would be used for everything , school work, work, and it would allow me to be a little more independent and not have to use someone else’s computer.. Thanks for the great opportunity… Following on facebook and twitter…

  121. I would give it to my 16 year old daughter. She is an advanced student and has tons of homework. She always need to be online for research and we only have the one PC for all 5 of us to share. This would be a huge help!

    I would love to win this for my step-daughter, she needs an iPad for school.

  133. If I had an iPad2 I would take it on trips to me ~ so compact yet powerful for keeping in touch and researching new areas!

  134. If I won I would give this to my husband. He is stationed in Korea away from me and the kids I think this would cheer him up

  135. Oh, let me count the ways I’d use this iPad…I’d Facetime with relatives in far away states, my son would use Garage Band to make sound tracks for his mini-movies, my daughter would play Tiny Tower to her heart’s content, and I’d attempt to convince my husband that Apple does really and truly rock!

  136. Winning an IPAD2 would enable me to spread the word on the great work Dr2Marketing is doing by giving away an IPAD2!

  137. If I won an IPad2, I would give it to my husband because he would really benefit from it. He has a first gen. IPad and he uses it a lot, but with all the upgrades you get with the IPad2, it would help him so much when he’s out of his office.

  138. I would keep it, and then give my iPad to my mom. She doesn’t have a computer at all so this would come in handy for her :)

  139. if i won this i could do some much with it read books take picture of my grandson i could take it with me everywere and not miss any thing i could stay in touch with my family we are all in differnet states

  140. If I won I would keep this for myself. I love technology and I would love one of these to see what all I could do with it. I would be able to take it everywhere with me, check email, surf the web and keep update to with things going on.

  141. If I won I would donate my iPad 1 st gen to my sons ABA class at his school so the special Ed teachers would have a powerful tool to help my son and other students to battle autism.

    if i got an ipad 2 it would help me skype with my boyfriend who lives 6000 miles away in bulgaria because the skype on my hp doesnt work.. and i would use it in my classes and show other students how helpful one is for university.

  143. I would give it to my Dad! He really enjoyed using mine over Christmas! His 78th birthday is in March, the iPad would be a great gift!

  144. I teach 6-18 year olds how to achieve confidence and to express their creativity through theater. I volunteer with a non-profit every summer to give these kids the opportunity to do what they cannot normally do in our rual community. To be able to use an iPad to take my lesson plans with me instead of printing them out from my PC would be a greener, cleaner, smarter way for me to function. The blessing it would be then to these kids would be great!

  145. I would give the iPad2 to my Dad so he can FaceTime with his relatives. He can’t travel because he takes care of my Mom full time. Thanks for the giveaway! :) ~ @DinaJ on Twitter

  146. The reason I want an iPad is twofold. First, I am a teacher. I teach high school English at a Christian school that does not have funding for new technology. At my last job, I explored the use of iPads in the classroom an was amazed at how much I could use the technology to enhance my teaching.
    I also own my own business. I am an Arbonne consultant. The iPad would be very elfin at demonstrations because I could show Arbonne video demonstrations and place orders on a portable tablet. I just recently saved up enough money to purhase an iPhone, and I am excited about the opportunity to also have an iPad.

  147. Hey there! I did all the steps and will be sharing/tweeting daily! Thanks for the awesome chance!!! I would create Digital Art with the iPad & my youngest little guy would really benefit from the ASD apps! :D Toni M. on Facebook, @VectoringMomma on Twitter!

  148. I would give it to my 16 year old daughter to use for her massive amount of homework.

  149. If I won an iPad2 I’d use it every single day to keep in touch with loved ones & to simply enjoy all it has to offer!! Currently I’m just using a cell phone for the internet which does not allow me to experience the internet to it’s fullest. I would just LOVE to own an iPad2!!!

  150. I have always wanted to own an Ipad but couldn’t afford it. I would use the Ipad. I would look for good ways to better manage my chaotic lifestyle with the aid of useful apps. I would take it everywhere with me because it’s so compact! ..to college, to work and even to the gym. It would totally replace my current laptop.

  151. If I got an Ipad2 I would surf the internet for great contest like this one, because after all you can’t win if you don’t enter.

  155. If I had an Ipad 2 I would share it with my grandson and we would play angry birds on it.. I could use it for school to so that I do not have to fight for a computer or use of one.

  156. I would use the iPad2 to help my wife recover from a brain injury – the educational apps will help her re-learn some of the things she is having trouble with today.

  157. I would download as many apps as I could from health to cooking and also play some cool games that are out in the App world. I would use it for my social networking like twitter and facebook. I also think it’s great it has a camera unlike the other iPad and I would utilize that also.

  158. I would LOVE to have an IPad 2 to use in my classroom. We have a small private school, and we are trying to get more technology in the classroom! I teach middle school language arts and an 8th grade art class. Please, please, please consider me for this drawing!
    Thanks,
    Kathy Carter

    Ps…I did both steps:)

  159. I would give this ipad to my Dad who has lost almost all of his hearing to enable him to communicate with us without all the frustration and embarrassment it has caused this past year.

  160. We are taking a road trip to Grandma and Grandpa’s house in Florida (we’re in N.J.). This would keep my 7 yr old daughter entertained on the way there, and mommy entertained during my downtime after I’ve driven ALL day! I’ve been wanting one of these!!! Thank you for running this contest! : )

  161. What an awesome, generous giveaway! I’ve been tweeting and shared with my friends! Thanks for the chance to win!!! If I won, I would use it for college, and my kids could also use it for school, and for fun! We would enjoy it so much!

  162. Would love to win this great giveaway, my daughter would be thrilled to have access to the stories and apps she has grown to love, outside of school. Then I can download the speech app, they won’t purchase at her school!

    I liked your facebook page, shared; followed you on twitter @bellows22 and tweeted about your giveaway! Hope i win

  164. The real question for me is …what wouldn’t I do with it!!! It’s so portable & does so much that it would go with me everywhere! I take my sister in law for chemo/oncologist appoints for bone cancer so I’d definitely be able to use it while sitting around for long periods in the dr/hosp waiting rooms (& so could she!) I could see using it during commutes etc. It would be great for surfing the web, listening/watching music clips checking in w/social media sites & email., etc. Anything I could do with my pc only it’d be easy to take w/me! What a blessing an iPad2 would be for us both!

    Tweeting away! @OnlyMe3074

  165. I would use it to keep in touch with my family who is scattered from New York to Texas to Minnesota. We could keep in touch, share pics of our kids,etc. My computer is on it’s last leg and every day it boots up is a good one! I want to be mobile—what a concept!

  166. I would be seeing what all I could do with it going back to school and face timing family who are all over (like my brother in Japan). Thanks.

  167. What a wonderful way to start the new year. I would use it to keep in touch with my children and extended family. I am losing my hearing due to a car accident and can no longer keep in touch via phone. It would be great for using in the kitchen with downloaded recipes, too. Jamie Casolari I shared via twitter i and via FB

  168. I would give it to my daughter. (a junior in high school) She would use it for homework. She looks up math problems. She would listen to music and she would read books. We can’t afford a laptop right now so this would be perfect!

    • I forgot to mention what I would use the iPad for if I won. I had gotten laid off a while ago, and like so many others in American today, I found it extremely hard to find another job. After I had struggled for so long with no success, I decide to return to college to further my education. I decided to earn a degree in the hopes of making myself more attractive to employers. The university I attend has a computer lab, but it’s always hard to get a computer, because there are so many students who need them at the same time. If I won this iPad I would definitely use it for school,.

      Thank-you again for the chance!

  169. I’m trying to figure out various ways to make my artistic talent a career, or at least earn enough to keep my family afloat, so my primary use of ipad 2 would be for its drawing applications and then to branch out with a blog, deviantart account and all that good stuff.

  170. Would love to have one to keep in touch with family when I am on the road. Also to keep up with give aways and news. Thanks.

  171. Completed all the steps and I would use it to communicate with my children while away from home and to read books. Thank you!

  172. I would give the iPad to my son so he could use it when he is deployed. He is a Navy SEAL and needs something compact when he is traveling. Thank You!

  173. Shared on FB and Tweeted I could really use this to help keep the little ones entertained who love the touch screen interactive apps

  174. I would sell it and buy crack with it! No just kidding I would donate it to my son school for the special Ed department so they can use it to teach autistic children like my son

  175. I would love to have this! I would immediately replace my ultra-heavy laptop that I regularly take to work (I frequently have to leave my desk to find a quiet place to work). Plus, this is an lovely shiny apple computer with all of the great design magic that means

  176. I need two awesome graduation gifts by May, and this would be outstanding! My son graduates medical school and my daughter graduates high school with honors.

  177. Hello,

    I would love opportunity to win an ipad2! I have recently qualified as a Primary school teacher and I would love to use this new technology in my classroom for my children to reep the benefits.

  180. I will use my new ipad for everything! Work, play, networking, photo editing, keeping in touch with friends and family– can’t wait! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  181. I’d allow my children to take advantage of the many educational apps available for the iPad. My husband and I could also use it for quick access to our email and web surfing/shopping. Of course, it would be great for the entire family as far and gaming apps go.

  182. I would use the IPad 2 for using internet on the go. But also for the games i can download for my daughter. Shes loves the ones on my phone but they are limited. With the IPad she could play all kinds of games; which makes for a happy child when your driving alot.

  183. Shared and Liked on Facebook and followed and tweeted on twitter @tbonpc so I have a chance to win an ipad that I would use while traveling and as a protable office .

  184. I would use it to help my son with his schoolwork and play games!! I don’t have a smartphone and he is always asking me to play games…

  185. I want to talk to my family and firends in France via skype and use it for working too !! :) I would use the ipad in the plane and everywhere I can .

  186. If i won this I would be so happy – get my emails organized, able to travel with it – shop online – do research but most of all let everyone know how I was able to win it by a wonderful company dr2marketing sponsoring and if they needed any marketing help to go to you

  191. If I won this contest I would give this to my son in college. Being from a single family home his entire life he has not always had the newest things in technology and he would be very excited to have this and be able to access things for school quickly.

  194. If I won the iPad 2, I would give it to my daughter, who just graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design. She would be able to load her artwork on the iPad 2 and use it to show her portfolio when applying for graphic design jobs.

  195. The question isn’t what would I do with a new Apple iPad2, the question is “What couldn’t I do with one”… It would replace my large and cumbersome laptop!

  197. I followed & shared, like & shared on FB. If I would win, I would check out the iPad thoroughly, as this would be my first newest tech toy ever! To see what exactly it can or cannot do:)

LOL Secondly, I would love to own this IPad because I have such an outdated computer made up of bits and pieces of a lot of different parts it would be refreshing to have something so up to date and such a good product. My son has an Apple laptop and absolutely loves it. Apple is definitely the brand to own. Thank you for offering this awesome prize and congratulations to the winner, whoever you may be.

  199. Brenda S.

  203. Since I just re-enrolled in school, an iPad2 would be so handy to have. The apps would be great, and it would be so much easier and lighter to carry than a big laptop.

  204. I would use it as a teaching tool for my children. The possibility of how they will benefit from learning on it are endless. Thanks so much for the chance to enter. I am following you on both twitter and facebook and tweeting. My fingers are crossed!

    Not to mention playing games on it for countless hours.
