Win an iPod at Circuit City Island

March 01st, 2008 | Category: Contests, Gadgets, Music, Places to Visit

Circuit City has recently relaunched their Second Life presence, creating a four sim Island, they refer to it as Circuit City Island in the terms and conditions of their contest, a contest in which they are giving away 10 iPods to the lucky avatars who find them. The iPods are ten (10) Apple 4GB iPod Nano ARV: $149.99, Model No. APL MB245LLA.

According to the rules they will randomly hide one iPod on the island, the sims will not always have an iPod hidden there, and the avatar who finds it, must click on it to claim it. I was all over this place tonight, PRETTY sure it wasn’t there. It would be nice if they would post a winners list so we can see if there are still prizes available. The sim has all kind of great info on the island, including a walk through giant digital SLR camera that shows you its inner workings.
