Would it be possible to move all these competitions/advertising into their own special place on the forums. I'm not against these kinds of articles, I just feel they should be separated from the general rumours. As this is totally not a rumour. And then people would have an easier finding these topics in the future.

And good luck for everyone who enters the competition.

This seems to be a sponsored post. The more visibility it has, the more money they can get from sponsors. MacRumors has to generate revenue somehow. That's like asking MR to remove ads from the front page because they're not rumors :P.

We'd like to keep them integrated on the blogs so that people do engage with them. We post more than rumors here...we intend to cover a mixture news, rumors, tips, and other content, part of which is giveaways. We won't be flooding the site with these, don't worry.

Who won the last one?

There were fifty winners, several of whom have already thanked us on Twitter.

Others have yet to receive theirs, as it takes several rounds of winner selections while we wait the 48 hours for winners to respond, then randomly select new ones to fill slots left by those who didn't respond, etc.

It is only sponsored in the sense that Pad & Quill is providing the prize...they're not paying us anything to run the post. Our intention with these is to give back to our readers and encourage them to engage with us on Twitter, Facebook, newsletter, etc. And yes, the companies sponsoring the giveaways do get some exposure. It's intended to be beneficial for everyone.

I have this bag. It's really great and worth the money. But I ended up buying a 13inch Retina to go inside this bag because the 15inch did not fit. :(
