You may remember that just under two weeks ago, we held a fun contest asking users to share their funniest tech-related stories. Well, the contest has now been over for some time, and we would like to announce the 25 winners, as voted by our readers!
Congratulations to our winners, and many thanks to the Poweramp team and to everyone who entered! Winners with XDA-linked Disqus accounts will receive a PM from me in the coming minutes asking for your Google Play Email address that I will pass along to the Poweramp team.
* Please note: The four users listed above with asterisks did not have their Disqus account linked with their XDA account. If you are one of these four and you wish to redeem your prize, please leave a comment here in this article from the Disqus account you used to enter the content stating your XDA user name (must have been created at least one month before the contest). If these go unredeemed by Friday, I’ll proceed to move down the list for potential winners.
The kind folks behind the powerful media player Poweramp are no strangers to showing some serious kindness to the XDA community. For those who don’t remember, last Thanksgiving, they so generously donated two Nexus 7 tablets to a couple of lucky contest winners.
Now, the team wishes to spread some Holiday cheer by donating 25 free copies of their namesake media player. But rather than having a simple giveaway to the first responders, we figured that we’d have a little fun with a contest. After all, we have to make you work for it. To do this, we want you to tell us your most hilarious tech story. The winners will then be selected by your fellow community members.
Entering the contest is extremely simple. Simply leave a comment describing your funniest tech-related story between now and midnight Christmas morning (Eastern US time). In other words, entries will be accepted from now until 36 hours from now. Entries can be about anything tech-related, be it a funny ROM flashing story or how you went to class with nothing on other than your Google Glass to anything in between.
The 25 comments with the highest numbers of up-votes will win. Judging will take place 12 hours later, so it’s in your best interest to comment early and ask your friends to vote up your response!
Please note that to prevent abuse, this contest is only open XDA forum members with accounts at least one month old. And of course, only one entry per person.
