Romanian gas company Gazprom says it is giving away the Apple Watch in a promotion

More interesting to us, is that the promotion also will give away an Apple iPhone 6 and an Apple Watch weekly, even though the latter has not yet been launched. Apparently, there will be eight winners of each Apple device during the promotion. Each Watch is valued at about $930 USD and will be sent out to the eight winners within one month after the device is launched in the country.
The contest isn't all about tech and gas. Daily prizes include espresso coffee, fresh orange juice, sandwiches with turkey sausage, eclair, and cake slices. Hmm. Perhaps this contest IS more about gas than we thought. In all seriousness, the promotion runs through January 26th.
Thanks for the tip, Mitoita!

Yes, Gazprom is a Russian company, but this is a Romanian subsidiary (of Gazprom Neft, to be exact).

By helping you mean humiliating yes. An average Romanian salary is around 300erur or 370usd and its a nation of people runing the f**k away to other countries. Where I live we are full of Romanians cause being slave in here is a better choice than being homeless in Romania.

BULLs**t. Romania is a country full of corupted people, from the average worker to the highest politician. Most don´t even want to work. Many of them are making (illegal) bussines or getting to live in other countrys where they get money for nothing (Germany, Spain). The EU was and still is pumping lots of money in that country...money that dissapears on it´s way...Humiliating? What a BULLs**t u talk., Oh yes, most of the young romanians are very high tech users, just for showing up how great they are. And yes, there are also really intelligent romanians, hard working in that country. And for sure, there are not many homeless people in Romania. Just my two cents.

Right now Russia is afraid, that it won't be able to build the southstream (gas pipe) threw the Black Sea to southern Europe. Gazprom right now is Europe's main gas supplier, and whole Russian economy is dependent on that. By building as many pipes as possible, Russia want to ensure, that Europe won't work with different suppliers. So the game is about hundreds of bilions of dollars, so for Gazprom, they would gladly buy an iPhone for every Romanian citizen, just to get to Southern Europe.

I'm from Romania and the average salary is around 500$. Regarding technology we are among the best. Second spoken language at Microsoft is the romanian. BitDefender comes from Romania and is the best antivirus. And also we are in top ten regarding the internet speed. I'm curently on 200 Mbps FiberLink witch costs 10$/month and the top is 1000 Mbps Fiberlink witch costs 20$/month. Not to say about the hackers or about Hackerville :)) The young people breathe tecnology!
