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.

As the year progresses, we draw further away from Google's annual I/O conference, and closer to the time when the latest hardware from Mountain View is made available to the public. While I/O itself remains one of the most popular tech conferences, the hardware unveiling is a contrastively low-key post across social media, but nonetheless, remains an exciting and much awaited event. In the months leading up to the unveiling, a host of leaks take place, revealing various info about...

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
