Time For Another Giveaway! (UPDATED with winners)

Update: And the winners are . . .

To celebrate the release of our new syndicated news package “iNews”, we’ve decided to do another giveaway. This one is a little different, though.

As you may know, in the past we’ve given away some guitars. Considering the cross-platform nature of this new package, we’ve decided to go a slightly different direction this time. How does this strike you: an iPhone, a notebook computer, and an LCD HDTV!

Simply leave a comment below to enter the drawing. We’ll draw three names; the first will win the iPhone, the second gets the laptop, and the third name will take home the TV.

Click here for contest rules. Some restrictions apply.

  1. Big fan of the texture and layering at about 0:26 into the clip — the lower register adds a nice depth to the overall piece. Nice job!

  2. Dan K says:

    Memorable signature line!
