The Old Technology Giveaway: Contest Results!

Final­ly, after care­ful­ly review­ing every entry (read: drool­ing for hours over old junk I wish I had), I have select­ed the two win­ners of this oh-so-close-to-tongue-in-cheek con­test, and they like­ly come as no sur­prise to those who have been keep­ing up with their respec­tive entries:

I will be con­tact­ing the win­ners to arrange deliv­ery of their prizes (remem­ber: Grant gets first pick…), and hope­ful­ly they will be nice enough to send in self-por­traits with prizes in hand.

Thanks to every­one who entered, com­ment­ed, linked, or oth­er­wise con­tributed to the OTG. More wacky con­tests will come as I think them up…

    Wow, that BeBox brings back some old mem­o­ries. Ofcourse they can’t be that old, see­ing as how I only broke out of my teens last year, but back in the day when I went to every Mac­world expo on the East coast, I remem­ber when they first intro­duced the BeOS — I still have the orig­i­nal Devel­op­er Release CD hid­den some­where in my house!

    Nev­er installed it though :(

    I don’t know if I’ve ever lust­ed for a com­put­er the way I lust­ed for the BeBox. What a bril­liant lit­tle piece of hard­ware it was. And, not a bad OS sit­ting on top of it, either. Too bad it nev­er took off. My only real beef about the BeOS was that it was single-user.

    I also remem­ber that EVERYONE was con­vinced Apple would buy Be and use the BeOS as the core of the mod­ern Mac OS. Of course, they opt­ed for NeXt, instead, and many peo­ple weren’t hap­py. I think we can all see now they made the right choice.
