I"ve seen hundreds and hundreds of competitions giving away ipads since they were launched.

I"ve also seen that ipad sales are well below Apple"s initial expectations.

It makes me wonder if the only people who"ve bought any are the companies who"ve been giving them away   :D

Played 5 having signed up last night. Can"t find a way of checking on progress - I"m sure it"ll become obvious when I"ve clocked up my 10th?
