Win a Free Copy of Poweramp!

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.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
