Geekapalooza #2- win an unlocked Samsung i320 Smartphone!

51 Comments

Samsung_i320Our first contest in our massive Geekapalooza contest was a smashing success but we’re not going to rest on our laurels, no siree.  It’s time to kick off the second contest in the series and some lucky winner is going to snap up a Samsung i320 Smartphone.  This is an evaluation phone that was hardly used so we’re offering it up as the prize for Geekapalooza #2.  The phone is unlocked so it can be used by any carrier and you’ll find the full specs after the jump.

Today’s contest consists of two parts since the first contest was too easy.  The contest will run from now until midnight Monday morning (EDT) and we’ll randomly choose the winner from all the entries that correctly answer the following two part question in the comments of this post:

A)  how many times has a jkOnTheRun article appeared on the front page of Slashdot? This is referred to as being Slashdotted (or /.ed for those in the know) and is a good indication for the popularity of a given web site.  Your answer must be exact.

B) provide the link(s) of each jkOnTheRun post that was Slashdotted.  We’ll give you a hint- we’ve been Slashdotted more than once.  :)

Good luck and we’ll announce the winner sometime on Monday but don’t forget the contest closes Sunday night.

UPDATE:  This contest is now closed.

As much as I’d like to be victorious for being the first to notice that question A is about being on the front page, not just being on /. , I think PJE nailed it by also recognizing that question B was about # of times slashdotted (not just being on the front page).

So I’ll further refine my previous two answers to this correct one:
A) # times on front page is 1
B) Links to all slashdotted articles

And then hope that my giving credit to PJE improves my odds of randomly being selected due to a Karma boost :)

Bah. Your contests require work! And I suspect you are using this free labor because searching this site sucks.

But I am cynical that way. Ha!

Although reading the post further it looks like you want the actual links to the posts themselves… Ah well. I’ll pass on that myself (my phone works for my purposes). Good idea to choose randomly from the correct answers though — otherwise it just becomes a race.
