Since our announcement yesterday there’s been a significant amount of discussion in the blogosphere. Some blogs, like ALT1040, the iPod Observer, iHeartApple and a burst of light think that we may have the “inside scoop” because we’re offering a free Apple Video iPod. Others including The Unofficial Apple Blog and Digital Tech Life, are questioning whether our contest is legitimate or just a big hoax. var/log/rux and Chris Perardi are just happy that an opportunity exists to get a free Video iPod.
The contest (with Video iPod prize) that we launched yesterday is real - the future of consumer driven video is in the making and is up to all of us. Clearly, it is up to Apple if they want to release a Video iPod - the only inside information we have is what it appears consumers and bloggers have been asking for.
We know that consumers should not be content with the choice of programming that cable companies provide and the so called "high speed" of cable modems and DSL. We also know that convergence is coming - the lines between the Internet and TV are disappearing. Bloggers imaginations about the future has a way of becoming reality.
Do you have a vision of the future? If you do, then please enter our contest and tell us what your vision is. The possibilities are endless. Just as it is possible for you to have interactive content on your television and virtually unlimited bandwidth in your home or office, it is also very possible for Apple to add a Video iPod to its product list by the end of the year. We definitely want it to be released and we know that the technology to make it happen is also very feasible.
Consumers of all types must be able to remove themselves from their contentious state in the “here and now” and realize that the possibilities truly are endless.
