Australia Day Comp Winners

After an incredible response, our Australia Day competition has now been drawn. We had a huge number of entries ranging from ridiculous to incredible, funny and elaborate as well as simple three word responses like "chuckin' a sickie".

However, there were only five prizes and as such there are five very lucky winners. Judging the competition was very difficult and we truly wish we had more prizes to hand out but these five eventually came out on top.

Congratulations are extended to:

First Prize: Sharp Aquos 32" LCD TV and DVD Player - N. Harvey - S.A.

"I'm flying to Nigeria to collect my $47 million dollars."

Second Prize: Navman Pin570 GPS unit - K. Hansen - N.S.W.

"I set half the clocks in my house ahead one hour and the rest back one hour and have spent 18 hours in a space-time continuum loop. I was able to exit the loop only by reversing the polarity of the flux capacitor. Accordingly I will be in late."

Third Prize: Cowon iAudio A2 - A. Austin - N.S.W.

"Dear David I come from a line of wizards of the dark-arts. According to prophecy a zombie horde will invade on 27/1/06. I will not be able to attend jeans and shirt day as I will be saving humanity. If I am successful I'll be back in Monday."

Forth Prize: GameBoy micro and two games - J. Elphick - N.S.W.

"My feng shui expert has advised that unless a water feature is placed in my hallway to activate my Chi I will be unable to find the energy to come to work this Friday."

Fifth Prize: Philips A330 PC Speakers - J. Kaye - N.S.W.

"Terrorists slashed my tyres."

Those that unfortunately didn't win this time around don't be disheartened. There will be plenty more competitions on the site in the near future. We appreciated your entries and thank everyone who entered for making this one of the most successful competitions we have ever run.

Very special thanks are also extended to the vendors, whose kind contributions made the competition possible.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
