It's happened to everyone at some point...you're putting the finishing touches on a 20 page paper about the migration patterns of seagulls, or you're about to beat the last boss in Ninja Gaiden on the NES. Then, without warning, the unthinkable happens: Power outage! Maybe it's windy out, maybe you "forgot" to pay your electric bill, or maybe there was just a freak power surge that made the lights flicker. Oh, and you didn't save. The hours of blood, sweat and tears are reduced to a blinking start screen in a nanosecond. That's why it's always good to rely on an uninterrupted power supply, like the Eaton Evolution. Eaton is offering to give away one UPS to the reader with the absolute worst technology failure story. It could be anything: Computers, video games, alarm clocks, or phone chargers to name a few...but the more details the better! This is your reminder to get your entries in by Nov 7th to be eligible. By clicking submit, you agree to share your responses with Gawker Media LLC and Eaton Corporation. All other standard contest rules apply (see rules).
