It turns out that Steve Jobs wanted to play a bit of Willy Wonka with an Apple customer, but California bans that kind of fun:
Inspired, perhaps, by Willy Wonka, Apple’s CEO wanted to put a golden certificate inside the 1 millionth iMac box. Whoever bought it would have the price refunded and be flown to Cupertino for a tour.
Where Jobs would meet them in top hat and tails. …
Indeed, he was only thwarted in his quest to plumb the Depps of amusement by California law.
It states that entry to sweepstakes should not require the actual handing over of money.
What do you expect? It’s California where they don’t like fun or capitalism.
