“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 41 – A Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch tablet

This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Mark.

On the Forty-First Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch tablet from Wacom!

Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen and Touch tablet

Bamboo Fun lets you get hands-on with your creative projects, combining the benefits of Multi-Touch with the comfort and precision of Wacom’s ergonomically-designed pen.

With Multi-Touch, you can navigate, scroll, and work with simple hand gestures. With the tablet’s large touch area, you have more room to navigate than you do with other touch devices like computer trackpads and mobile phones.

Need precision? Pick up the pressure-sensitive pen to draw, sketch, edit photos, and add handwritten elements to your creations. The generous size of Bamboo Fun gives you lots of space for creative freedom, making it simple and comfortable to use.

Bamboo Fun works with your existing computer: desktop or laptop, PC or Mac. Attach it to a standard USB port and set it comfortably by your keyboard. You can even customize your Bamboo Fun experience by assigning your own shortcuts to the four ExpressKeys™.

Available in a stylish silver color, Bamboo Fun will complement your current setup. And it includes valuable additions that make it ideal for your creative projects.

To enter: Boy, it seems these day people can’t get enough of Multi-touch tablets! And speaking of tablets, we’d like to know, What do you think of Apple’s new iPad? Will you buy one? Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to ALL READERS WORLD-WIDE. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!

  1. If one comes out with a camera, then yeah, but not in its current form.

  2. Carlo says:

    I like it but it doesn’t seem useful for me now. Will wait awhile

  3. Jeff says:

    I think in a year, the iPad will be a killer product and will alter how we consume media.

  4. VB says:

    probably wont buy first gen, but it’s looking good for the future

  5. It’s godly, but I think I’m gonna pass on this one. I need a new laptop more at the moment. Plus, I’m due for an iPhone update when the new one comes out. Too many things at once, Steve.

  6. Dennis says:

    I would propably buy two: One for my mom (she cant handle her Win7 notebook), one for me (love surfing on the couch).

  7. Nathan D says:

    If I had the money, I’d get one. i think it is a brilliant release, from a corporate point of view.

  8. Ryan says:

    Definitely would buy my parents one (or two?), it is absolutely the perfect computer for them. They couldn’t care less about the “missing features,” and an iPad does everything they want to do on a regular basis. And then I hope someone buys my then broke self one.

  9. Yes. For two reasons: 1) It’s an alternative to displaying my portfolio to clients. (Rather than carrying a cumbersome brief, reel, etc). 2) My ipod touch is dead.

  10. stormadvisor says:

    I will not be getting one. I expected more for all the secrecy.

  11. Men_in_Black says:

    I think i won’t buy one, I will get a Macbook. I think there are not all the possibilities I need/want, if I could install normal OS-X apps, i would buy it.

  12. Aldo Johnson says:

    Probably not, thought it could be extremely useful in my job as a High School teacher.

  13. Aldo Johnson says:

    Probably not, though it could be extremely useful in my job as a High School teacher.

  14. Gabriel says:

    it looks awesome… can’t wait to get one….

  15. Adam says:

    It would be a lot more attractive with a UI meant for the device it is running on instead the supersized iPhone. Hardware looks pretty slick and has a lot of potential too bad apple is utilizing none of it

  16. Brandon says:

    When I get rich – yes. Or 2nd generation, whichever comes first.

  17. Tim says:

    I’m usually a 2nd generation buyer, but the iPad meets a need for my father- he has been developing serious vision problems, and can’t read well. large print books aren’t cutting it for him, and neither are the e-ink deals… yet he can read quite comfortably from a back-lit screen. So, I’m thinking iPad for him, ASAP, providing I can load non- apple epub files onto it.

  18. Shaun says:

    I think the iPad is amazing! Better than anything else out there for it’s class. Yes, there are some shortcomings, but doesn’t everything have some kind of shortcoming? Can’t wait to get it!

  19. Trip Mitchell says:

    this would really help my 6 year old budding computer animator get his feet wet, and so much fun for Daddy, too.

  20. ronny says:

    nope. my ipod touch is a much more economical substitute.

  21. Lienster says:

    love the iPad, and definitely will buy one. it solves my dilemma of choosing between the ipod touch and the macbookpro.

  22. Mike says:

    Yeah, I’m gonna get one! Some for the office too!

  23. merry prankster says:

    I’ll be standing inline when the 3G version comes out.

  24. Andrew Kelley says:

    well considering i dont have the money for it, i will not get it. Unless someone buys it for me of course. I think its more of a want than a need. and i want 😉

  25. Wade Smith says:

    I suspect, like the iPhone before it, no-one will really have a clue about what it can do and what it will mean until it’s been here for a spell. I intend to get iteration #2 at the moment, but that’s mostly because I don’t know about things I want to know about, like bluetooth access, wifi updating, media support, etc.

  26. Victor says:

    It’s a giant Zune!, I don’t think i will buy it.

  27. shel says:

    Smitten with the iPad and I’m dying to own one when they come out. Saving my sheckles now

  28. Hugo says:

    I’ll be waiting for the next generation. Maybe when it has a full OS. I want to use on the bus, charging and syncing other iPods and iPhones and using a full iTunes with a 2TB portable hard disk.

  29. laura says:

    I’ll buy, but maybe not right away.

  30. Teegan says:

    Why would I buy an iPad when I already have an iPad Nano…

  31. Mike says:

    Yes, I will probably buy one, but not the 3G model.

  32. Matt says:

    I will buy one when there’s a front facing camera and multitasking.

  33. Marlon says:

    I’m gonna wait for the second generation that it will be so much better xD!!!

  34. Gabriel says:

    I thought it was pretty sweet… but i think i’m going to wait for the 2nd generation for the webcam

  35. Tom Ross says:

    It is okay, not as great as the hype. Not bad. Just like, ehhh, maybe. Hopefully Apple doesn’t treat it like a hobby (see AppleTV).

  36. Alex says:

    It doesn’t replace a laptop…

  37. Richard says:

    Not a revolution as the iPhone, maybe a USB internal port?

  38. keith j says:

    I think the ipad is very slick and can’t wait to see where it goes. I’d definitely buy one. Everybody and their grandmother is going to make stuff for it.

  39. Adam Fisher-Cox says:

    I think with third party apps it will be awesome, and yes I do hope to get one!

  40. Jeff says:

    G2 will be better; It’s up in the air.
