So, what we want you to do is pull out your camera or iPhone or whatever you use to take photos and grab the cutest picture you can of your baby or child with a technology related item.

Win a trip to Computex Taipei 2012 winner announcement!

TweakTown image news/2/4/24265_1_win_a_trip_to_computex_taipei_2012_winner_announcement.png

 

We had a rather good response and will consider running the contest again next year. However, enough of the dribble... you are here to see if you are the winner of our contest.

 

Drum roll please! The lucky winner of our Computex trip is Roshan from India. We have already been planning the trip with Roshan and things are proceeding well. He is very excited about the opportunity we have given him to come to Computex and Taiwan for his first time. You can look forward to some guest blogger coverage from Roshan during Computex.

 

Sadly not everyone can win - if we had it our way, we would bring each and every one of you over who entered, but of course it's just not possible. Better luck next time if we decide to run it again and thanks again for participating!
