OK, Freebie Tuesday is becoming really popular so we must keep up with the expectations! This time FireHost is giving away Wacom’s New Bamboo Pen and Touch (launched just a few days ago) to help TWO Creative Professionals get in touch with Secure Hosting practices.
Who is Firehost?
FireHost is web hosting secured. They provide advanced hosting techniques like web application protection to help keep your sites (and your clients’ sites) running smoothly online, protected from hackers.
Application security is especially important for websites built on open source platforms like Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla. Without proper protection, these sites may be susceptible to SQL Injections, DoS attacks, Cross-site Request Forgery, Google Hacking, and a host of other attacks that can take you offline, or worse… out of business.
Design Oriented Services
On the quest to protect websites, FireHost has really honed into our unique needs as designers. They take the headache out of managing a technical hosting environment and provide:
- SSL VPN Administration so you can manage files for multiple clients from one protected, server login
- Open Source Expertise and Installation Support so you can explore new CMSs with confidence
- Global Content Delivery capable of delivering the websites you design to visitors the world
Don’t take their word for it, ask your peers about their experience with FireHost’s secure hosting. They protect:
- Chris Wallace @chriswallace
- Casey Barthels @barthesis
- Nathan Smith @nathansmith
- Damian Madray Designers’ Couch @depthskins
- Kyle Steed @kylesteed
- and Yours Truly @inspiredmag to name a few
Bamboo Pen & Touch from Wacom
Bamboo Pen & Touch combines the benefits of Multi-Touch with the comfort and precision of Wacom’s ergonomically-designed pen. The result: a powerful new way to work with your computer. With Multi-Touch, you use simple hand gestures and finger taps on the tablet’s surface. And because the active area is larger than traditional mobile devices and laptop trackpads, it’s comfortable and natural to use. Easily move around your desktop, scroll through documents, navigate the web, zoom in and out of photos, and rotate images.
Need precision? Pick up the pressure-sensitive pen to edit photos, create personal greetings, make sketches, and mark up documents in your own handwriting.
Using Bamboo is easy—even if you’re new to the touch experience. The included tutorial will teach you how to use simple hand gestures to move around your desktop, make selections, and complete other tasks on your computer. You can even customize your Bamboo experience by assigning your own shortcuts to the four ExpressKeys™.
Bamboo works with your existing computer: desktop or laptop, PC or Mac. And it’s an incredible value with the included software: AdobeÂ® PhotoshopÂ® Elements and NikÂ® Color Efex Pro™. Sleek and black, the tablet makes for a stylish addition to your workspace. Attach Bamboo to a standard USB port, set it comfortably by your keyboard, and let your intuition guide you.
Basically it makes an iTablet out of any computer :]

- Jason – why do we need one? hmm… to start, it’s for our intern, who obviously is pinching pennies and even $99 plus tax would pinch her bank account. why we want her to have one… if she were to win, she would probably jump up and down and spin around with so much excitement, that she would fall over, bump her head, and in the process of her accident, would see all sorts of amazing creative visions and inspiration for designing cool things, helping us to make more money so that we would be able to pay her in more than free lunches, which is only causing weight gain not creative gain
- Luke Jones – It’d be absolutely amazing and a great help if I won this, I’m a struggling freelance designer, and this piece of kit would allow me to spread my wings that little bit further and show the world what I can do. If I were to win this, it would be one of the best things that could happen to me.
Congrats guys, you’ll be contacted by the Firehost team. Thx everybody for your entries and stay tuned for more!
