Bleeding Edge TV 265: A look at our HP HDX Dragon giveaway

You should all know by now that we are going to be giving away a sleek, slick, awesome HDX Dragon computer prize package as part of the contest. It amounts to just about $5,200 worth of prizes if you were to go out and buy everything on your own. Pretty sick, right?

Well, we wanted to give you a look at exactly what you would be walking away with if you won. In this episode, we show off everything. The Dragon computer, all the software, all the games, and all the Blu-ray movies. We run down the computer specs as well, and we clue you in on what we will be doing to pick a winner.

We will be posting more about the contest and our method for choosing a winner in a bit more detail tomorrow. It’s late, and I’ve been moving all day…but at the very least, we had to get this video up for you guys at midnight, because we know that some of you are hardcores. We couldn’t leave you hanging.

A big thank you goes out to HP for sponsoring this contest, and this episode.

Heads up, we are giving away an HP HDX Dragon notebook - 31 Days of the Dragon

HP HDX Dragon

Hey, remember that HDX Dragon PC that we unboxed a few months ago? Well, HP has gone and upgraded the specs on that puppy, and they want us to give one of them to you guys. Not just the computer, but a few movies, a few PC games, and a bunch of software too. All in all, if you were to purchase everything we are giving away on your own, you’d end up spending somewhere around $5,196.00. Yeah, I said it. Go ahead and read that again.

No, here is the real kicker. Now only are we here at Gear Live giving away one of these beasts, but thirty other sites are also going to be giving away the exact same package, including our friends over at ArsTechnica, Lockergnome, JKOnTheRun, and Jake Ludington’s MediaBlab. That means you have 31 chances to win. Seriously. That’s why we are calling it .

Now, each site is going to set their own criteria for how they are going to run things, and we will be announcing what we will be doing soon. Our giveaway date for the HDX Dragon is June 7, 2008. You’d better keep it locked here, peeps. Oh, and anyone in the world is eligible to win.

Hit the break for the full scoop on everything we are giving away, which other sites are also giving these away, and an unboxing video of the HDX Dragon.

Xbox Live 10K Club

Typically, you expect to receive gifts on an anniversary – especially a birthday. But such is not the way the Internet works. The Xbox Live 10K Club has now turned one-year-old, and to start the celebration, they’re giving away a copy of Civil War: A Nation Divided for the Xbox 360. Throughout August, they’ll also be giving away a new game each week, t-shirts, and the like. But the grand prize is the best part – a Halo 3 Edition Zune and a copy of Civil War. Not too shabby, eh?

Go and show your support for the 10K Club at www.xbl10kclub.com. They’re a great bunch of people and have a very nice community of gamers, and if you qualify (guess what the requirement is?), you’ll even be able to join the 10K Club. Congrats guys – thanks for all the hard work that’s just for the community, and here’s to another year and beyond.

Prize Sponsor: O’Reilly Radar

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Activities, Sponsors,

O'Reilly RadarBrady Forrest just informed me that we will be getting a handful of books to give away at Seattle Mind Camp 3.0. The books are Mind Performance Hacks and Building Scalable Websites. We will figure out an interesting way on how to determine the winners at the event.

The O’Reilly Radar team, pays attention to what’s new and interesting in the world of technology.  Our methodology is simple: we draw from the wisdom of the alpha geeks (like MindCampers) in our midst, paying attention to what’s interesting to them, amplifying these weak signals, and seeing where they fit into the innovation ecology. We share our thoughts via the Radar blog and our conferences such as ETech, Where 2.0, RailsConf, and the brand new Web 2.0 Expo.
