ibarista-caricature.gifWell,  we ended up having some iPod Shuffles left over from the BIO2008 International Convention, in San Diego, Calif.  After running the Patent Baristas’ iBarista contest, it turned out to be harder than expected to just “bump into” someone in a crowd of 20,000.

So, I thought I’d give everyone a shot at picking up one of the iBarista iPods from Editor-in-Chief Barista, Stephen Jenei.  There are now two (2) all new chances to win and it can’t be easier.  I can’t wait to give these away.

Chance 1.

For everyone to have an equal chance, I will randomly select a winner of an Apple iPod shuffle 1 GB from everyone who submits a new  comment on the PatentBaristas.com website in the month of July ’08.  One entry per person — multiple comments will not increase your chances.  Comment spammers will be disqualified.

Chance 2.

For a chance to win another Apple iPod shuffle 1 GB, all you need to do is post a new link to the PatentBaristas.com website on your website.  I will randomly select a winner from everyone who posts a new link to the PatentBaristas.com website in the month of July ’08.  One entry per person — multiple links will not increase your chances.  Link spammers will be disqualified.

There are a few, uh, provisos. Ah, a couple of quid pro quo

We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that looks like it isn’t legitimate. The winner will be contacted at the email address entered or available on their website. Failure to respond within 5 days will result in the prize being given to someone else. If a winner lives somewhere that we can’t ship to directly using standard shipping, a cash (e.g., PayPal™) value prize may be substituted.

Otherwise, all of the previous iBarista iPod Giveaway Terms and Conditions still apply.

That’s it.

Good luck.
