Watch the magic, circa 1993:
This contest has closed and winners have been contacted.
Please feel free to read all about the awesometastic features of the original iPad, aka Apple Newton, but the contest is over and the winners have been contacted. If you haven't heard from us, then it was not you. Our deepest randomly-selected apologies.
Released in 1993, Newton was Apple's original tablet-slate-whatchama-thingies. Not only that but it was also considered a device of magical importance. Really! Newton weighed less than a pound and was smaller than a VHS videocassette! The Newton had advanced handwriting recognition. It could even send a FAX!
GRAND WINNAR: An ORIGINAL 1993 H1000 Apple Newton MessagePad,
plus a $1,000 ThinkGeek Shopping Spree!
As if this piece of advanced, magical technology isn't enough, we've also decided to toss in a $1,000 ThinkGeek Shopping Spree. You might want to hand the shopping spree off to a friend though since you'll be so busy enjoying your new-found computing freedom!
Please Note: We can't promise the Newton will be all shiny new. We fired it up and it works. We might even leave you a special note.
RUNNER UP: 16GB iPad with Wi-Fi
and a $500 ThinkGeek Shopping Spree!
O ye of second place, you might not have a need for a fax machine in the middle of the desert. You might want to download books and music, watch movies, email, surf the web, play Doodle Jump. We suppose that's ok if you're into that sort of thing, so we bought you an 16GB wi-Fi iPad. Won't that be super?
Yeah, we're not feeling it either. No doubt missing out on the Newton will break your heart, so we've tossed in a $500 shopping spree to go along with the iPad. Hopefully, this will help soften the blow.
