Discourse Talent Show
Submissions are open now, go to discourse.co.nz/comp to send your entry in. You’ve got a couple of weeks to get your entry in. Any creative, cool, or fun endeavor that you can document and present online will do. A photo (or photoshop), painting, recorded dance, song, poem, performing a joke, doing a backflip, or whatever it is you can come up with. The Discourse team will pick one winner, and the audience favourite will also win.
Both winners receive an HTC Trophy Windows Phone 7 phone, thanks to Microsoft. The worst entry gets some junky android handset from the grimy bottom of Ben’s gadget box.
Motorola Defy Giveaway
The final Telecom XT Motorola Defy has been won! Congratulations to Aaron Gillon, for destroying a perfectly good Samsung Galaxy S you get the also perfectly good but very slightly newer Motorola Defy.
Here’s the destruction, in glorious Internet-Vision-O-Scope.
Nicely done, Aaron.
