The BackPack is an iMac Clutter Killer (Giveaway)

This contest is now closed.

Please watch the video for a super cool product review (and a giveaway at the very end!). Twelve South is such an awesome company, and they’re so personable. I contacted them because I fell in love with, oh, just about every single one of the products that they offer. And they design exclusively for Macs, which I l-o-v-e. The days of Windows getting all the love are gone, my friend.

The BackPack is such a nifty little device — I can’t believe nobody came up with this sooner! As I explain in my review, the iMac is all about clean minimalism. Until you add your backup drive. And your iPhone. And your digital camera. What’s the point??

The solution: the BackPack, or as I have affectionately dubbed it: the Clutter Killer. It is a dream come true for obsessive-compulsive personalities like myself! It’s such a great price too. Even if you don’t own an iMac, I’m sure you know someone who does, who would like it very much!

One more thing–after filming, I discovered a really cool translucent rubbery pad in the box, which you can place on the BackPack if you have something slippery or smooth (like an iPhone) that you want to prevent from slipping or avoid any scratches while moving it back and forth. Since I just have my big, fat 1TB WD MyBook external hard drive sitting on it, I am just playing with the rubber pad–it’s so much fun.

Mandatory: To enter the BackPack giveaway just watch the video, then:

  • Leave a comment saying anything you like (maybe, which products you like from Twelve South, what you would do with the BackPack if you won, just say hi, whatever!)

Once you have done that, you can increase your chances of winning by 2 ways: some require a comment, some don’t, so pay attention… :)

Optional: Leave an extra comment for each:

Optional: No comment needed (automatically eligible!):

Good luck everyone! The contest will end Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 11:59 PM CDT. Winner will be chosen randomly from the eligible entries via Twelve South provided the review product for my use and honest opinion, as well as provided the giveaway item to the lucky winner (whoever you are!). Contest is open to the U.S. and Canada only.

If you like music as much as I do, groove to this song that I’ve had in my head the last few days:

    !!! I would use the Backpack for the exact same purpose you did! My backup HD is great, but definitely takes up extra space and clutters up my desk.

    Also became a follower on twitter ;) @anneomaly

    Subscribed to the twelve south blog. totally agreed that minimalism is the image and this is a must have item. i don’t think i would use it for my iphone as i reach for it all the time but external HD would be perfect back there. or if your monitor faces the entry way…something small like a tiny fake plant would add some color and be unique. haha…thanks!

    Chris just got an iMac and was planning on getting the Backpack when his computer ships-it’s really cool and perfect for unclutterers like him. I think the BookBook is really clever too!

    this is great! i would give it to my sister who has a mac: she gave me her old windows laptop and got a mac because she’s a photographer–so with her camera and hard drive, this would be perfect!
    also, i really like the Book book–so cool!

    I couldn’t agree more – once I saw this product, I was amazed no one had thought of it before. Ingenious! Thanks for the chance, and God bless you! :-)

    My daughter just bought a Mac Book Pro for school…she could definitely use this. Thanks so much for the offer.
