Buyers’ Guide Countdown Contest: Win a new iPod! – Winners Announced


Buyers’ Guide Countdown Contest: Win a new iPod! – Winners Announced

Winners have been announced in the 2007 iPod Buyers’ Guide

The theme – iPod Colors – is simple. Apple has released the new iPod nano in six* colors – red, silver, pink, green, blue, and black. And of course, standard full-sized iPods come in white or black. Take a picture of any iPod – old or new – against an interesting background that emphasizes one of those colors. For example, you can have a white iPod on a pink background, a pink iPod on a silver background, or a black iPod on a black background – as long as the background is silver, red, pink, green, blue, black, or white, you’re set.

We will pick three total winners – two iLounge editor favorites, and one at random from all entries that have been voted upon by 5 or more users by October 31, 2006.
