Warning.....if you select "Twitter" you have to give this company access to way too much info. MacRumors, I'm disappointed you would allow this, even when contestants see warning.

Thanks for bringing this up. I'm going to tweak the Twitter entry method to prevent MR readers from having to connect to Gleam like this.

Edit: Changed this entry option so there's no need to give Gleam your Twitter access. I do ask for your Twitter handle, and that's so I can go check to make sure you're following MR. Should be much more straightforward now.

I just wonder how they get away with the Icon Pillow, in terms of intellectual property? The other products omit the logos.


These things look like they were made in a high school crafts class.
Went to a fancy high school huh?
