    It’s about time Macrumors stops being so closed with their competitions. Why can’t us folk outside of ‘murica be allowed to enter to try an win.

    Maybe time to offer all these giveaways to the rest of the world, given the fact that many of the MacRumors readers are not from the US or Canada?

    What type of residency should they be, permanent or temporary, or does it not matter what type?

    I agree, their excuse of "Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to enter." does not carry any weight now because there are companies, both large and small, all over the world doing international shipping of products with no problems.

    Personally i just feel Macrumours staff are just too lazy to want to get involved in shipping stuff internationally.

    Seems like it's well beyond shopping, as can be seen in the thread. Also, because some other companies might be doing something, it doesn't necessarily mean they are doing it completely legally as far as complying with all the necessary rules and everything else that comes with it.

    Based on the name calling and implied bigotry using the term 'murica, why would anyone consider your plea?
