Contest: Two Weeks of Holiday Tegra #3 – Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Updated: Winner Picked!)

Day 3 of DL and NVIDIA’s Two Weeks of Holiday Tegra is here! We knocked out two of our ten tablets on Monday and Tuesday, but this is only the beginning. Counting today, you have another 7 chances to walk away as a new Tegra 2 powered tablet owner. What do you say we give away a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to celebrate?

As one of our favorite Android tablets to date, there aren’t many this thin or with a display as beautiful. If there was one tablet to get your Tegra Zone gaming fix on, this would most definitely be it. And speaking of Tegra, you may want to consider Zen Pinball THD as your first Tegra-built game. Who doesn’t love pinball?

So who wants it?  

Update:  After spoiling every underage DL reader’s dreams with your 2,700+ Santa stories our contest has come to a close. A winner has been picked!

Mwalker267 found out that Santa wasn’t real because he caught him in bed with his mom…not even santa is that giving.

  • As our mother backed the car out to take my sister (5 yrs old) and me (6 yrs old) to see Santa, she says “Now you know of course, that Santa isn’t real don’t you?  It’s just a man in a suit pretending.”

    Sitting on a stranger’s lap trying not to let on that you know he’s playing dress up and embarass him is one of the more awkward things I’ve ever done.

    Hold on…. if there’s no Santa, who the hell is that fat, kid-loving, hairy, old guy in the mall?!?! Damn, PedoBear in disguise! 0_o

  • Awoke early to see the mom caring gifts to the tree and the father eating the cookies… ;(

  • Black Friday when my mom took me shopping. When we were in line she said, “Just so you know Santa Claus isn’t real. BROKE MY HEART!!

  • xaerosum

    Never bought into Santa, but I would be a bit less skeptical it a galaxy tab came my way!

  • I think I over heard my brothers talking about it when I was around 10 or 11. I cried about it as a matter of fact.

  • Just sitting using my computer getting ready to enter a great contest, and then reading the question and seeing it say that santa’s not real!!!!!

  • Krobin 350

    found out santa wasnt real when the horrible xmas nexus release started this morning! Evil Santa!

  • Shavers80

    the first time i found out that santa didn’t exist was when i found my presents stashed in my moms closet. Of course i looked through them, but then i realized that santa wouldn’t have stashed the stuff there.

    The way I found out there was no Santa was I found all the boxes that were supposed to be the “Santa” gifts out in the trash.  I then told my twin brother there was no Santa.  HAHA. 

  • I first found out that Santa wasn’t real when I caught my parents playing with the Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots before they wrapped it. Shame shame… 🙂

    When I realized that the fact that Santa and my mom used the same wrapping paper, what not a coincidence.

  • 5th grade. But I had my suspicions before then

  • it was 1987. i was 7 years old. came to the living room and there stood mom with santas cookies in her mouth filling my stocking……. it still hurts to this day

  • Draco Bunbury

    Santa (my wife)is real he send me the galaxy nexus tomorrow 🙂

  • I was probably around 7 or so I learned about St Nicholas growing up on the dutch island of St. Maarten.  It was at a christmas event for the kids similar to what they do now in malls where kids can gather around and take a picture with santa.  Later on I asked my dad about it and he told me all about it.  It was cool though, I think all I cared about at that time was gifts.

  • Pennywise

    … I was 28 years old and I overheard Randy Beeman’s mom talking on the phone… I was devastated. Can we not talk about this?

    (my dummyhead brother told me at like 10 yrs old)

  • Colin Blumenthal

    Came downstairs when my parents were wrapping presents one night.  Also was raised half Jewish so that didn’t help things.

  • My older brother was a turd and told me when I was like 4 years old.

  • Joe Fischer

    Figured it out on my own at about age 10. Got a little fishy when my dad left midnight mass early every year on Christmas eve.

    I found out at like 10 when I found all my stuff under a table with a big table cloth, but I kept my mouth shut so the gifts would keep coming!

  • I was 10 and i was getting ice cream when my phone showed Santa eating my cookies. 🙁

  • flniner

    I snuck out of bed when I was 6 dressed in all black. I used my carefully honed ninja skills to sneak into the living room & caught my mom red handed

    PS: can’t seem to log in on my phone so posting as a guest, hope that doesn’t affect my chances.

  • i was living in Vietnam and we have no santa in there  so, he isnt real for me

  • Brandon Sobotta

    I found out on a school bus on the way to the zoo, i had to pretend I didn’t think he was real so people wouldnt laugh at me. I was in 5th grade :O

  • When I realized that I didn’t have a chimney because i lived in an apartment complex. And when i left cookies out but they were still there the next morning

    I was 6. Saw momma wrapping brand new N64 😀

  • When I was about 7, I recognized the “Santa” at the community party as a neighbor of ours.

  • Jamie Thomas

    I believed in Santa until i was 17 years old when i seen a closet full of toys in my moms room that day will always be in my mind:(

  • I don’t remember when I found out, I do remember waiting until my folks (as Santa) put our presents in our stockings.  As soon as they went to bed, I’d go down and see what I got!
