Yes, here it is, folks, our first iPad-related giveaway: the Joule iPad stand from Element Case.
You can get the full rundown on the company's product page, but the key here is that this stand not only looks sleek, it's also sturdy. "Unlike most stands," the company says, "the Joule won't tip over when using the iPad's touch screen, which allows you to better utilize your iPad on your desktop or kitchen countertop."
It's made in the USA from solid aluminum and comes in a polished finish or a black anodized coating (winner can choose the color).
Normally, the Joule would cost about $129, but you have the chance to get it gratis.
