Well, we spent the better part of this past weekend tidying up around the old HQ and found a TON of old gadgets buried under a pile of back issues of Omni. We've gotten a lot of stuff sent to us over the years, not all of which we have time to check out, so rather than just let it all continue to collect dust, we're going to give everything away (besides, we're not supposed to hold onto review units anyway).
We want all these gadgets to find good homes, so if you spot something you want, here's what you have to do to win: Make a note in the comments below clearly indicating which gadget you want by both name and number, along with a few lines about why we should give it to you. We'll give each gadget to the person who seems to want it most, so don't hold back!
You can only pick one gadget, so pick wisely, and keep in mind that if you go for one of the less popular gadgets you're more likely to walk away with it.
A few other things:
- Only one entry per person, please (cheaters will be automatically disqualified).
- The contest is limited to US entrants only, mainly because we can't ship any of this stuff overseas.
- You'll have until 11:59pm EST on Sunday, August 20th to enter.
- If we still have some unclaimed gadgets we'll do a second run and let everyone who didn't win something the first time around re-enter.
- Please allow three to four weeks for prize delivery.
UPDATE: Remember, you MUST put BOTH the name and the number of the gadget you're interested in in order to properly enter. Also, you CANNOT ask for more than one gadget. We're only going to consider entries from those who can follow instructions.
UPDATE 2: Ok, by now every gadget has been requested by literally dozens, if not hundreds, of readers, so if you're going to make a plea we suggest you go for one of the less popular gadgets and/or write something so convincing that it'll edge out your competition. Thanks, and good luck!
UPDATE 3: Contest closed! Nearly 4000 people entered, so it's going to take us a little while to judge this one. Be patient, we hope to have some winners within a week or so.
UPDATE 4: We have our winners! We just sent out emails contacting all the winners, thanks to everyone who entered!
