I did, it made me sad that I never got one of the CR-48s though. I hope I win a Chromebook.
Haha, I did the same. I haven't had time to keep up with what was being announced today. I am interested in a Chromebook, but not for $429 when I already have a netbook.I received the Chromebook email from Gilt. Found this place searching online to make sure it wasn't a scam. 'Sharing?'
Rob, the invitations/emails are still going out to some of those who participated in the 60,000-unit pilot program. Perhaps you'd like to clarify what you mean by sharing. The invitation? The Chromebook? Something else?If anyone here got the Chromebook/Gilt "invite" and was interested in sharing to help out the site, please let me know
The emails are from Google's Chrome Team and appear focused on Google's Cr-48 pilot program participants. That's not explicitly spelled out in my email other than to describe us as "our biggest enthusiasts."How do they go about choosing the people they want to send those to? Is it just random, or is there some type of application to fill out?
You indicated that you received your email from Gilt. Others have said they received their emails from Google's Chrome Team. I suspect that could be the difference.I sure wasn't a participant. A hopeful, but no participation.
Problem. In the email it explicitly states: *Remember, you must use this email **** to access the saleBy "sharing" I mean giving us the access code, or allowing us to by the Chromebook from Gilt using your invite.... we would then purchase the Chromebook, get early delivery, and be able to share news/information/reviews, etc.
Let me know if you can help .
I signed up to participate in the Cr-48 pilot program but wasn't included. I did however get the Gilt invitation.The emails are from Google's Chrome Team and appear focused on Google's Cr-48 pilot program participants.

Pardon my speculation. I was guessing. My email came from the Google Chrome Team. I have no information about where other emails might have come from nor what the recipients have in common that got them included.I signed up to participate in the Cr-48 pilot program but wasn't included. I did however get the Gilt invitation.
