I don’t know about this one, but the last contests we’ve had at least one overseas winner. (Belguim)

Try anyway, and if it is US only and you win.. give them my info ;)

I’ll be there. That TuneCenter dock is HOT. And that survival kit has a ton of cool stuff.

Is there an age limit?

Posted by TheDeepThought42 on April 14, 2006 at 1:47 PM (CDT)


5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET.

For those in the UK that’s 1:00 a.m. BST - another late night!

No age limit.

Although to give out your info online at any site, you should be 13+ or have your parents permission. But AFAIK, iLounge didn’t check any of that :)

can people who have already won something from ilounge win this contest to?

Posted by Jill on April 14, 2006 at 8:59 PM (CDT)


How do I know when is PT (pacific time) and ET (eastern time)?  I live in Thailand and it’s +7.0 GMT. So when is 5:00pm PT for me? Can anyone help?

Posted by hoho on April 15, 2006 at 2:46 AM (CDT)


Yes, if you were a previous winner you can still take part.

According to the Time Zone Converter 5.00PM PT is 7.00AM in Bangkok - so looks like an early rise for you!

Posted by Bob Levens in UK on April 15, 2006 at 8:46 AM (CDT)


I’ll probably skip this one people, good luck ;)
(though I do want the iFM, don’t really care about the rest <.<)

Posted by katherine on April 16, 2006 at 4:25 AM (CDT)


iPod trivia? How can I lose? lol

Posted by Jake on April 16, 2006 at 11:15 AM (CDT)


So with the EarThumps, do we get one black one and one white one?

And why the age limit?  I guess I’ll have to get my father to play for me…

Posted by dansgil on April 16, 2006 at 3:53 PM (CDT)


Have you double checked the age limit yet?

Would it be possible to play and if I win just have you ship the product to my father or something?

Posted by Josh Powell in VA on April 16, 2006 at 8:52 PM (CDT)


That is probably the way we will have to do it - for under 18’s if you win, get parent/guardian to email delivery details.

Posted by Bob Levens in UK on April 17, 2006 at 4:43 AM (CDT)


Alright, that works just as well. I’d have no problem getting my parents to do that.

Thanks Bob :)


Posted by Josh Powell in VA on April 17, 2006 at 1:29 PM (CDT)


Okay, I guess I’ll just get my parents to send the email…if I win…


Posted by dansgil on April 17, 2006 at 1:36 PM (CDT)



They’ve also said ETAs for the TuneCenter,
TuneCenter (regular) to launch in May
TuneCenter Pro to launch in mid-June

Their internet is messed up, so they are all sharing the same IRC nick, and also the replys are coming in really slow for some reason. Poor Jeremy :) Doing a good job though.
