Since our Forums launched 3 weeks ago, we have given away over $1,500 in prizes, such as iSkin gear, a bundle of promo codes for some awesome Apps ‘n Games and more. So what do we have in store now for our next (grand) giveaway? An iPod Touch 8G and four iTunes Gift Cards (1x $50 and 3x $15) of course! Rather than simply selecting winners randomly from a pool of eligible participants, the iPod giveaway will be much more competitive in nature and involve a bit more work. Are you ready to win the big one? Full contest details after the break!
Over the past two weeks, we featured a wide range of iSkin products to giveaway, including cases for the iPhone (Solo, Solo FX, Solo FX SE) and iPod Touch (touch Vibes, Touch Duo). We even featured 2 items in iSkin’s premium line of electronic products – the CERULEAN X1 In-Ear Noise Isolation Earphones and the CERULEAN TX + RX Wireless Bluetooth Transmitter & Receiver. Not only will our winners be able enjoy the quality cases/accessories for their iDevice, but thanks to iSkin, they’ll also have the choice of selecting the color and design of their prize where applicable.
And before we get to announcing the winners, we’d like to send out a big thanks to the team at iSkin for their generosity and making the many giveaways possible for our forum members. Now on to the lucky 14!
We’ve featured plenty of apps and games during the past two weeks for our Forum App Giveaways. Now we move onto a different sort of application, a software that will allow you to back up your DVDs with several clicks.
WinX DVD Ripper Platinum can rip the content of DVDs to all popular video formats such as AVI, MOV, FLV, WMV, MPEG, MP4, 3GP, etc. This DVD ripper software supports multi-core CPU and is fully compatible with Windows 7.

With WinX DVD Ripper Platinum ($29.99), you can finally transfer all your favorite movies and tv shows from DVD to your iPhone/iPod Touch and other mobile entertainment devices. The software is even able to backup/convert DVDs with the latest copy protection technology, such as Star Trek 2009, The Dark Knight, UP, District 9 and more. So if you want a simple and powerful solution for ripping that (old) DVD collection to your iDevice, be sure to see how you can win 1 of 10 copies after the gap!
Yesterday, we featured the iSkin CERULEAN TX + RX Wireless Bluetooth Transmitter & Receiver. Today, we have the highly desirable CERULEAN X1 In–Ear Noise Isolating Earphones ($99.99) as part of our final iSkin Giveaway. While the stock iPhone/iPod earphones do the job for the most part, there’s no denying that owning a pair of quality earphones will make your iDevice THAT much more enjoyable – be it for music, movies or gaming. The CERULEAN X1, iSkin’s top of the line earphones, are designed to deliver audiophile sound quality as well as for optimal comfort (3 silicon ear-buds of different sizes are included). The X1 also boasts a “closed air design” that helps keep the music in and surrounding noise out, thus ensuring that your audio entertainment won’t be disrupted even when your mom-in-law is yakking away. For your chance to win this pair of awesome X1 earphones, simply participate in our forums to enter. Full contest details after the break!
While iSkin are best known for their cases and protective accessories, they also have some popular and well-received products in their premium CERULEAN line. Today’s giveaway features the CERULEAN TX + RX ($129.99), two tiny gizmos that will allow you to play music from your iPod, iPhone, MAC, PC and even other mobile phones wirelessly up to 30 feet (via Bluetooth) on essentially any iPod-specific speaker dock. If you’re using an iDevice with support for bluetooth (iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod Touches 2/3G), you simply pair it with the dockable CERULEAN RX to begin streaming music. For other devices without bluetooth support (iPod Classics, Nanos, 1st Gen iPhone/ iPod Touch etc), the TX Stereo Bluetooth Transmitter will add wireless audio functionality and allow it to pair up with the RX receiver. With the TX + RX combo, this iSkin wonder will give you wireless freedom and allow you to enjoy your music just about anywhere.

Our Forums Giveaway O’ the Day features 3 hit games from Artificial Life, a veteran in the mobile gaming who has collaborated with many big names in the sports and entertainment industries. Spartacus: Blood and Sand is based on the hit (and well received) Starz original TV series of the same name. You’ll face off with characters from the show in this 3D fighter that sports plenty of features and great visuals. Pandorum, also a tie-in with the Hollywood flick of the same name, is a solid FPS offering with a survival/horror twist. Last but not least, we have Red Bull Racing Challenge, a racer that puts you behind the wheel of the grand-prix winning RB5 and one that also features multiplayer racing via bluetooth (among many others). For your chance to win these action packed titles, all you have to do is participate in our forums. More details after the gap!
We’ve already featured plenty of iPhone and iPod cases from our iSkin Giveaways and today, we move from one mobile device accessory to another – the Macbook. The iSkin ProTouch is a Keyboard Protector that is made with pure high-grade silicone that is soft and flexible and specially engineered to cover every key on your Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air (released late 2008 and later). The ProTouches are also embedded with Microban® protection (no more worrying about bacteria build-up on your typing surface) and you can even wash them with warm water and detergent to keep the skins squeaky clean.
We have 1 each of the ProTouch FX and ProTouch Vibes up for grabs. If you want to give give your MBs an extra layer of protection and one that looks great to boot, don’t miss out on this iSkin giveaway! More contest details after the gap…
Our three featured titles in today’s Forums Giveaway are all based on a supernatural and out-of-this-world setting, yet each belong to their own distinct genre of gaming. 7th Sense Studio’s Fallen Ep-1 is one of the few survival horror games on the iDevice that lives up to its expectations. With great visuals and a good balance between action and adventure elements, fans of Resident Evil will certainly want to check this one out. From Big Blue Bubble, we have Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, the first in the series of interactive RPG books by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone that finally fills the void for anyone yearning for some (old school) role-playing gamebook action. Finally, Necromancer Rising (RyanMitchellGames.com) is an ambitious Action/RPG that brings Diablo-like gameplay to a first person hack n’ slash. Multiple copies for each game are just waiting to be won, so be sure to check out the contest details after the break…
With the immense popularity of the iPod Touch, it’s easy to forget about the “other” iPod, the one that started it all. Well, iSkin haven’t forgotten about the folks out there who are still proud owners of the iPod Classic (6G), which also happens to be the iPod for our featured iSkin Giveaway of the day – the evo4 Duo. Featuring a dual-layer design in which the outer frontal ViSOR is housed over an inner layer of silicone (to provide shock absorption), the evo4 is built with style and full-protection in mind. And for those constantly on the go, it also comes with a fully removable rotary belt clip system to keep your device just where you want it. So are you a proud owner of an iPod Classic 6G? If so, be sure to check out the contest details within to see how you can enter to win!
