Can you see me now?

Another contest! Because it’s Monday and because you’re so pretty.

So here’s the deal: I have a HP HD-3100 TrueVision Webcam up for grabs. If your computer doesn’t have a webcam, you’re missing out! You can use it for video chatting, or—if you have kids, like me—you can use it to allow your children to entertain themselves for hours on end. Because nothing is more fun than a webcam, apparently. (No, I don’t really understand it, either.) This webcam even comes with the software that does all of the special effects the kids find so hilarious.

Want to win it for your very own? Of course you do! For a chance to win, simply go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, January 27th, 2011 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and winning smile.

Ready? Go!

  3. I want this for Skype!

  4. Thank you, Mir!

  5. Ooh, pretty.

  6. Wow, thanks Mir!

  7. Thank you for the chance! I’ve been complimented on my orthidontic work by every dentist I’ve been to – not sure if that translates to a winning smile but apparently parallel root structure is a thing to behold.

  8. Oh, count me in! I’m always looking for ways to keep the little ones entertained (that doesn’t include me!). Thanks for the contest.

  9. This would RULE!

  10. Thanks, Mir!

  21. I would like this–I would probably give it to my 13-year-old nephew for his new webbook, but I might direct (or have a cameo in) some of his videos.

  22. I could put this to use asap! 🙂

  23. this would be great to check in with long distance friends and fam! you rock, Mir!

  26. This would be a cool gift for my mom so we could chat and see each other!
    Thanks for the chance!

  27. I do have a webcam on this computer but since I bought a cheaper computer, the webcam is a little slow.

  28. We are the only ones in the family that don’t skype so we would love this to catch up!

  29. This would be pretty cool. Hope you son is much better too.

  30. This would be awesome!!

  31. We upgraded our family desktop last year, but it doesn’t have a webcam. NEED! NEED! NEED! (Really, just want. But still, NEED!)

  32. Oh what fun. My son’s laptop doesn’t have a web cam. He’s have loads of fun.

  33. My mother in law is leaving for Scotland tomorrow for 2 years of studying overseas. We’re having Grandbaby #4 in March and she is INSITANT that we skype, especially when the baby is here so she can see him! Our webcam is really cheap and not good, so this would be a HUGE blessing to win!

  34. I’d love this, thanks!

  35. With a grandchild in another town I wouldn’t miss anything!

  36. Great giveaway! My family would love it for talking to the Grandparents!

  62. I would love to win this! Thanks for the chance.

  63. The grandparent would love this. Thanks for offering.

  64. *smiles winningly* I’d love to have this for my husband. I’m trying to get him to talk more to his dad, but neither of them are phone people. They are doing a “book club” with just the two of them, but they are unsuccessfully trying to “discuss it” either via phone (as I mentioned above, not a good idea when neither wants to talk on the phone) or email (still not a good idea when neither of them has time to sit there and type out a bunch of his ideas). Neither are working, and this was my next idea. 😀

  65. Ohhh the fun we could have!

  66. We could really use this to keep in touch with my brother and sister in law. Thanks!

  67. Yep. Five kids. Could really use some entertainment! Thanks!

  84. Awesomest prize, ever. Right after the Zombies.

  85. I would love to win this! It would allow my 10 year old daughter to monopolize my computer even more than she already does! Apparently it’s more fun to play on mom’s desktop than her own laptop!

  93. I would love this! Thanks!!!

  94. This would be great! Thanks Mir!

  95. Maybe my kids would talk to their grandparents more if they could see them on Skype? I’m willing to try it even though it means I’ll have to tidy up the portion of my house in the webcam’s view!

  96. Would love to win this!!

  98. FUN!!!!

  99. If you have loved ones far away, a web cam is the only way to stay connected.

  100. OH!!! We need one SOO badly! The other day, I tried to Skype with our friends who live in Papua New Guinea. While we could see and hear them, we could only type out chat to them. Not near as fun for the kids as if they could see and talk with each other.

  101. pick me plz!!

  102. I’d love to win! I’d love to skype with family.

  103. With one grandbaby in Atlanta, GA and another one due in June…this would make all the miles seem not so distant!

  104. I need this for my soon to be deployed husband’s computer so we can see him! me, me, me!

  105. Our web cam is pathetic so an upgrade would be awesome!!!

  106. My kids’ Nana has been bugging us about a webcam…aren’t we supposed to be the hip, techno savvy ones?

  107. OK Hate this… Count me in. Last one on the bandwagon still rides! I am sooo not techno savvy, ask my kids.

  108. Very Cool!

  109. I would love to have this to monitor our house when I’m at work or we’re out on a mommy/daddy date and want to check on the kids.

  110. My son’s father’s webcam just broke and he’s 1500 miles away from us. This would be AMAZING. I’d win a ton of Good Mom points if I won this and gave it to him.

    Thank you!

  112. My family would love this!

  113. I’m feeling lucky 🙂

  134. This would be perfect for our family! We are moving away from friends & family this spring and I’m so sad that my boys are going to miss being with their grandparents & cousins! Thanks Mir!
