An iPad a week. How lucky can you possibly be!

You asked for it. You got it! In celebration of…well…just being awesome! We’re throwing our dedicated followers another MRT contest to put all our other contests to shame! Introducing the Apple a Week iPad Giveaway!


That’s right. We’re giving away the 64 whopping GB’s

Exactly what are we giving away? Oh yeah that’s right! A 64 GB Apple iPad every week for the next twelve weeks! So that means every Thursday starting on June 24, 2010, one very lucky winner will win their very own gleaming 64 GB Wi-Fi iPad worth $700! Then, we will be announcing another winner every Thursday after that. Sound simple enough? We think so.


Fresh out of the box and ready to give them all away!

The next question would probably be: Are you dreaming? Well, only if you want to be. Otherwise, no, you’re not dreaming…and no, we can’t pinch you. That would just be weird and too close for comfort (not to mention you’re probably in the wrong contest if that’s what you want.) What we can tell you though is that this is one super easy contest. Like all our other contests, there are three simple things you can do. Ready?

1. Simply post a comment below on “WHY YOU WANT OR NEED THIS”…Be creative, original, honest, whatever you like. Just don’t copy someone else’s entry. We’ve seen this before and that’s a good way to disqualify you. Only ONE comment can be submitted per person, per week. After every Thursday, all comments from the previous week will be disregarded/deleted and everyone will have a fresh new start to post another comment.

2. If you’ve got Twitter, follow us at and RETWEET the contest post as many times a week as you like. We will have a very special drawing in September wherein one very lucky person from Twitter will win their very own 64 GB Apple iPad!

3. If you have a Facebook, Follow us at My-Reality-Tech and re-post & comment on the contest on your bulletin as many times a week as you like. We will also be having a very special drawing in September wherein one awesome person from Facebook will win their very own 64 GB Apple iPad!

A word about comments: Before you can even comment on the weekly iPad prize, you MUST enter your email on the right side of this page where it says “enter your e-mail. Remember, after you sign up, you MUST go back into your email account to confirm that you’re signed up (just so we know you’re not a spammer, cause we’re definitely not). Otherwise, you won’t be qualified. It’s a one-time-thing only so if you’re already signed up or have signed up in the past, then there’s no need to do it again forever.

What’s the sign-up for? Well we gotta contact you if you win, don’t we? lol. It’s basically our weekly newsletter where you get an email whenever we have a cool new review up or another giveaway contest, which we do a lot! So it pays to be informed. Other than that, no spam, no trying to sell you anything or getting you to sign up for anything. Just our harmless weekly notifications. Got it? Good.


We know it’s hard to read when looking at the gorgeous iPad stacks. But please, read the rules if you want to avoid being disqualified.

Ok now for the uber-important qualifying rules: The MRT Apple iPad contest is open to all North American (Yes Canada, you’re in there too) Residents 18 yrs and over. Twitter & Facebook entries are open to the whole world! If you’re not 18, have your parents sign up for you. No fake emails please. No multiple ones either. Winner(s) agree(s) to provide us their full name, valid shipping address and telephone number. All such personal information are for our security & validation purposes (we don’t want giving prizes to convicted serial killers, child molesters and/or general psychopaths), and as such, will not be shared in any way or form with anyone in order to protect your privacy. All winners are chosen at random using a randomizer in an effort to make everything fair, and as such, we do not determine the outcome of each contest. In addition, staff editors and their immediate families (defined as parents, children, siblings & spouses of staff editors) We reserve the right to disqualify any entry we feel violates any law or is being unfair/derogatory in any way we see it. Winner(s) agree(s) to the above simple rules. Best of luck!


Let’s take one last look at another beautiful stack of ipads shall we?

So you’ve read the contest terms and seen the photos. What are you waiting for? The Tooth Fairy to hand you a $700+ iPad in your sleep? Yeah, you’d really be dreaming then! REGISTER, COMMENT, RETWEET & REPOST!  Remember, ONLY ONE COMMENT PER WEEK. If you have any questions, use the “Contact Jenna” link on the very top of the page.

    I went to work from home a few month back and I live a bit away from the city. I need an iPad so when I am out doing my job, I don’t need to run look for a Satrbucks to get internet to get information I might need for my job. It is also smaller so I wouldn’t need to lug my laptop around. Thank you for the chance!

  • Jillyrh

    I would love to win this so my son could use it to take notes on in class at college. He has a hard time writing quickly enough to take the notes he needs but can type pretty fast. Thanks! Tweeting @jillyrh

    Need to join the 21rst Century. Laptops are so 20th Century. The Ipad is more portable, and not MS which is always,always, virus scanning and MS-updating. I feel like I own my laptop only part time. Need something that I run, not something which runs me.

    Well this would be such a great help in keeping track of the numbers and readings for diabetes, we need to have a backup in case the monitor blips and clears out, and that has happened, or we lose the papers so we can get it printed out and that has happened lol. This also would be the solution to all the gadgets for college my sons have to carry, The iPad could do them all and it is just one easy one to carry for them. There are so many reasons I want one and I haven’t even seen one in person yet and I terribly want it!! GLTA Keeping everything crossed!

    Why was this reposted to Twitter?

  • Gaurav Rajasekar
