MacRumors Giveaway: Win a New iPad and Balance Folio Clear Case From Speck

by

For this week's Friday giveaway, we've teamed up with Speck for something special. We're giving away a brand new 32GB sixth-generation iPad paired with one of Speck's iPad cases, the Balance Folio Clear.

Priced at $44.95, Speck's Balance Folio Clear is made from a clear, durable polycarbonate that keeps your iPad protected but visible, leaving the design and look of the iPad unobscured. The case has been drop tested and will keep the iPad safe from scratches, bumps, and short falls.


The Balance Folio Clear includes a built-in adjustable stand that can be positioned in several angles for typing, watching videos, and more, and when closed, there's a secure clasp that keeps everything shut tight for travel. Sleep/wake magnets are included so your iPad turns on or off when the cover is opened or closed.


For a folio-style case, the Balance Clear adds little bulk to the iPad with the clear rear shell and thin protective front cover in black or blue.

Speck is pairing the Balance Folio Clear with a 9.7-inch 32GB WiFi only sixth-generation iPad, which was released back in March and is the newest iPad Apple has available for purchase. It offers an upgraded processor and Apple Pencil support.

[doublepost=1528495126][/doublepost]Why does every giveaway have to be that data mining collection site Facebook, it’s ludicrous.

Four out of the five entry options have nothing to do with Facebook. So if you don't use Facebook you can do the others ones, which is nice.

But surely this will sell poorly now that Federighi has informed us all that taking your hands off the keyboard and lift them up to poke a touch screen is fatiguing?

EVERY entry is for the purpose of data mining or pumping up ad rates. Why do you think they run these promotions? Did you think companies just take pleasure in giving you free stuff?

If you are that extremely concerned about privacy, you should NEVER enter a corporate promotional contest. You need to give something to get something. TANSTAAFL.
