|Kinda lame I never got a CR-48||Benjamin Kerensa||8/10/11 7:47 PM|
The day Google started asking people to post videos on the Chrome OS Youtube channel saying why we deserved one I was one of the first people to do exactly that and my video on their channel had the top views for the first few weeks then a couple days later they put up the application and I filled it out the day it went up and no shiny CR-48 ever showed up at my doorstep.
I feel neglected considering a number of people report receiving as many as two CR-48's

It was like playing the Lottery.... there was never any guarantee, that we would get a CR-48 at all.

Perhaps for people who simply applied but the Chrome OS Youtube Channel thing plus application should have made it a done deal.

I'm sorry that you didn't get one. There are significantly more people that wanted them, than the amount that they had to give out. There was no done deal, or guarantee that you would get one. They did accidentally give some people more than one, but it was just that, an accident. All I can say is better luck next time.

I'm sorry to hear about that. I didn't expect to get a CR-48 and as Will said, there were absolutely NO guarantees.
And, the people that got 2 CHEATED. That's what's sad.

You don't know that Matias. There seem to have been some genuine mistakes made on the part of Google. It also should be relatively easy to realize that someone that applied five times put in the same address every time. It didn't say you couldn't sign up multiple times on many accounts. I would have done it if I thought it would increase my chances. I assumed that it would actually hurt them, so I only signed up once.

What's even more lame is the number of brand new, in the box, CR-48's
for sale on eBay.
