To celebrate we are throwing a few prizes your way and will have a bunch more goodies to follow.  This week in anticipation of our full 1-year episode scheduled for July 27, we have some little goodies to help you get your gadget fix.

Avatar MouseNZXT has offered up their Avatar mouse as well as a set of premium cables, while Scosche is throwing in a flipSYNC mini/micro USB charging cable as well as a flipSYNC iPod/iPhone charging cable.

Sweet, I won the  Technocel PowerPak (http://store.technocel.com/PowerPak.aspx)

Sent my email info, and no Fujitsu, My summer home in Camperville is being rented out to Zeus lately.  :P

What are the chances of getting a tour of the BCCHardware South Studio and picking up the prize at the same time?

I might even be able to bake some cookies (fresh off the shelf from Walmart) for the trip.

Thanks Weekly Tech Update and happy birthday!

Post by: Zeus on August 09, 2010, 08:28:53 AM
lol.

We could probably arrange something like that BoneRak.  Once the prizes arrive, we'll make sure to invite you out/over/up and see what we can do.  As far as camperville - "it's strategically holding a limited area" - not camping.  Isn't that what you called it last week?

Haven't received anything yet but it shouldn't be much longer I guess.
Title: Re: [Frontpage News]Weekly Tech Update 1 Year Contest
Post by: Fujitsu on September 08, 2010, 09:17:44 PM
Unfortunately we weren't really given much of an eta from any of the companies supplying the prizes but they've all been notified and prizes should be on their way to the winners

Hopefully your prizes should be arriving shortly
Title: Re: [Frontpage News]Weekly Tech Update 1 Year Contest
Post by: Zeus on September 08, 2010, 09:37:48 PM
It can easily take over a month to get prizes unfortunately.  We let the PR company know once we receive confirmation and mailing addresses from all the winners.  Then the PR company lets the manufacturer know about it.  The manufacturer gives their marketing department the info and that is sent to the warehouse where stuff is shipped out.

Sometimes there are less steps, but this is generally the rule of the corporate ladder.  Patience people.  If these guys let us down like Thermaltake did a long time ago, I'll snap.  I'll come out of the cake.  I promise.

This is completely unrelated but I have to send your avatar to a die hard Oilers fan, Fujitsu.  He's still stuck in the Gretzky Dynasty days and needs a reality check.   ;D
Title: Re: [Frontpage News]Weekly Tech Update 1 Year Contest
Post by: Fujitsu on September 10, 2010, 11:28:01 AM
Haha, for sure, gotta give those Oilers fans a hard time (especially if you are a Flames fan, although our performance last year wasn't stellar, but at least we weren't dead last....)

Gosh, this is crap.  I'm getting a hold of them AGAIN today.

What's up with those companies? They're making BCCHardware look bad! :(

From reading everyone's replies it appears NZXT were the only ones who actually sent prizes.  
Pretty bad that these companies failed to deliver the goods :(

Kind of sad that there hasn't been another contest since this one ended.
Title: Re: [Frontpage News]Weekly Tech Update 1 Year Contest
Post by: Fujitsu on January 07, 2011, 12:01:16 AM
After the last contest we had we are trying to make sure that any future contests go a whole lot more smoothly. Unfortunately when a company fails to live up to their end of a contest it makes it a huge hassle for us and no one wins, we are working to make sure that doesn't happen again.

After we catch our breathe from CES 2011 we will be working on a couple giveaways in the next couple months, as always, stay tuned for more details.
