Win an HP TouchPad!
One Reg reader just bagged fine HP kit – now it's your turn
Promo This February, The Register ran an exclusive competition in which our readers had the opportunity to win an HP Slate.
From over one thousand entries, we randomly selected Donald Kaplan as the lucky winner. Kaplan, a New York City–based PR exec, has been a loyal Reg reader throughout the current millennium – since the year 2000, to be precise.

Having satisfied Kaplan's needs, The Register will now give you another shot at digital riches and your 15 minutes of fame. In our new contest, which will run through the end of August, you can snag the soon-to-launch HP TouchPad.
The lovely and talented HP TouchPad can be yours, all yours

Seems a fair trade for a chance to win an HP TouchPad – but we thought you might want to know before clicking that link and entering your info. ®
I have been a reader of El Reg since the last century, and beyond the mailinglists that I have specifically subscribed to, I have never received any form of unsolicited email.
As far as I know, El Reg operates in a correct way towards their readers.
And before you ask, no, I don't any relation, of any type (commercial, friendship with someone, anything) at The Register.
But it really bothers me to see that someone who clearly is new here trashes a well know and respectable technology news site.
....while El Reg may operate in a correct way, HP is another horse entirely. Likely to throw you off too.
I had filled out the form the last time and didn't submit due to the HP spam clause... the pay to play is too high. Now.... say if it was an Asus EEE Pad TF101 Transformer, I might be persuaded to add a trash email off one of my domains.
Btw: why is it only old fucks win these things? Lottery, raffles, anything.... Hmm, been a fan of El reg since late 90's... getting gray... hell, I might have a chance!
the touchpad comes with a full keyboard
Anyway, congratulations to the winner.
