We mentioned on Friday that we've teamed up with StackSocial to provide all sorts of cool deals, and were going to be posting about them throughout the week. Well, to kick things off, how about a giveaway of an iPad Air 2? If you've got an old iPad, or no iPad at all, hit this link and enter the giveaway. Basically all you need to do is get signed up for our deals site so you can log in, then click to enter the contest.

It sort of goes without saying, but the iPad Air 2 is a hell of a device. It's the first iOS device Apple shipped with 2GB of RAM, and it's kind of crazy how big of a difference it makes. The amount of apps you can multitask to without having them quit and have to re-load from scratch is really crazy. I never used the four finger swipe gesture to switch apps on old iPads as you could really only switch between two or three things conveniently. Not so on the iPad Air 2. This really only makes me that much more stoked for the iPhone 6S, which is rumored to have just as much RAM.

Anyway, enough blathering from me, go sign up and claim your chance at a free iPad Air 2.

    Anyone know if you can just use an existing StackSocial account to sign up for TouchArcade Deals? Or is it a separate thing?

  • Solarclipse

    Nice. I can support TA and find some cool stuff. They got this Titan charging cable that looks like it will never break at the neck like two of my apple chargers have.

    Residents of Italy, France or Austria are not eligible to enter but Germany, Netherlands and Belgium are?? Randomness rules, I suppose... :/

      International contest rules suck, nothing we can do about it. πŸ™

      • vicsark

        Signed in anyway, even if I can't win.
        Good initiative, I hope I may help TA with some articles shipping to France.

    It's kind of jarring to see people excited about 2gb of RAM when 3GB has been on the market for more than a year honestly..

    • nini

      Yeah, they're not stat-checking like they're buying an Android tablet though. I just wouldn't enter as it's likely to be replaced in a few months, might even have 3Gb of memory or more.

    • Rip73

      I suppose the difference is that android needs 3gb to just function whereas an iPad Air 2 excels and sets a true benchmark with "just" 2gb.
      As can be seen in any benchmark test since it came out because it obliterates most (if not all) of the competition.
      Optimised properly software paired to an optimised device makes a big difference too, something all android, bar Nexus, lacks.

  • Milotorou

    Oh well might as well give it a shot, one who tries naught will get naught.

  • Bone16

    Canada eligible for this?

  • Echoen

    Anyone else having difficulty with verification? Tried multiple times with a different link each time in 3 different browsers and it still wants me to verify.

    I don't see anywhere to enter the contest.
