Neverfail, the business continuity software specialist, is offering Reg readers in the UK the chance to enter a lucky dip which will see the winner take away a shiny new iPad 2. Oh yes. The taking part is easy, but read the large print below. You need to complete a short survey about business continuity, which includes a few …
Second prize: Two iPads
Double the eBay goodness :o)
@Mystic Megabyte: Damn!
You got there first. -:)
Always the same
Howabout offering something good, not another flippin' iPoood
They want opinions on Business Continuity from the sort of people who want an iPad... weird!
Maybe because you can just replace a broken/lost iPad with another one and very quickly restore it?
Don't see how laptops/netbooks/other tablets would be any better.
They want opinions on Business Continuity from the sort of people who want the value of an iPad once eBay have taken their cut...
Although given the biggest complaint seems to be "it's too expensive!", many people may be happy with a free one. Jailbreak it and complaint number 2 disappears (walled garden).
FWIW, my parents won an iPad and use it as an internet tablet and nothing else, mainly because they can't figure out how to buy any Apps for it...
If I wanted to look like a dickhead, I would just paint my face orange.
The head of your dick is orange?
Instead you look like a dumbass
1. Win iPad 2.
2. Sell it on eBay.
3. Buy whatever meta-hipster gadget you're not too cool for.
4. Pat yourself on the back for not being a dumbass.
...just use the pay my employer gives me to do the same and not have to face stoopid questions from marketing-types (who already think I'm the sort of moron that would want an iPad) and endless spam and calls from same.
You appear to be equating "entering a draw for" with "getting". You may suffer some disappointment in life.
...you could look like a dickhead by showing the world that you need to bolster your self esteem by denigrating others in a public forum. Since you have no interest in iPads and this story is specifically about a competition to win one it's probable you spent time reading it with the sole purpose of writing your little put down...
Why UK readers only?
What about the rest of the world (especially as we always have to read complaints US only offers)?
Not Large Print...
It's standard sized - although a welcome difference from the sub pixel fonts we're normally expected to read
You didn't say it was a Microsoft Product Business Continuity survey!
no thanks, i'll pass.
They want your employers details (no doubt to sell them something) for the *chance* of getting an iPad.
No thankee sir!
Want useless information?
Survey iPad toting dickheads
I am not about to give information about the resilience\lack thereof of my employer's infrastructure If I have to name them as well.
I could be sacked. This is security 101 for IS warriors.
Why is this "news" ?
I have no problem with companies drumming up sales through surveys and prizes are always a good incentive but I'm sure I opted out of this via email. Having something pushed in my face is a new tactic I'm not especially keen on
