Test drive a Chrome notebook!

I opened up my Chrome browser today [v9.0.597.19 beta if you must know] and when i opened a new tab- saw a cute little dangling tab at the top of the viewing area:

So I thought to myself, “self, that’s really odd– unless some really clever internet marketer figured out how to hack or add-on a ‘one-time special offer’, this has got to be legit…so, I did what any enterprising gadget freak would do.. I CLICKED IT!
and got this:


Test drive a Chrome notebook.

We have a limited number of Chrome notebooks to distribute, and we need to ensure that they find good homes. That’s where you come in. Everything is still very much a work in progress, and it’s users, like you, that often give us our best ideas about what feels clunky or what’s missing. So if you live in the United States, are at least 18 years old, and would like to be considered for our small Pilot program, please fill this out. We’ll review the requests that come in and contact you if you’ve been selected.

So I filled out all the appropriate info and got a confirmation. I made sure to save the confirm page and analyze the html, because- well, I AM a web developer– and there’s all manner of hidden treasure in web forms…

So I eagerly await Google’s fateful decision as to whether I qualify or not…
again- my very life hangs in the balance based off of completely arbitrary decision making power that The Google holds over me…

i guess I know whose lapdog I truly am…
