Website Offers $100,000 Bounty for Proof of Apple Tablet PC

January 13, 2010

You read that right. Valleywag is offering up to 100 grand in cold hard cash for definitive proof of the existence of Apple's long rumored tablet PC. Here's how you can get in on the action...

The details are as follows:

• $10,000 for bona fide pictures.
• $20,000 for video of one in action.
• $50,000 for pictures or video of Steve Jobs holding one.
• $100,000 for a one hour hands-on with the device

You may be thinking, "Wow, that's a crazy amount of money to be offering just to get proof of a device" but when you consider how much revenue they'll make off traffic to their website, the bounty starts to make a lot more sense.

Is this the start a new Internet trend - gadget bounty hunting? We'd imagine people would be willing to do some pretty interesting things to get their hands on a prototype now, with the economy and all.
