Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

HDX Contest Entries Closed

Well everyone, the videos are in. I've been watching them all day, but I'm going to need some time to review every one again. We had just shy of 30 entries, so it's going to take me a little while. Please bear with me as I give each one my full attention. I'll announce the winner shortly.

    Give him a bit of a break, he extended the entry deadline. So the least you can do is be patient. :)

    Nothing went wrong.He needed time to give special attention to each entries.There are many good entries.So, it's certainly tough for him to decide.Give him some time. :)

    sushrukh78, something definitely must have happened!  Robert said in his post that he would announce the winner at 12 PM Est. time Sunday.  I understand he extended the deadline, but after doing so he updated his blog post saying "I'll announce the winner shortly".  When he says this, we expect somewhere around an hour or so!  Not 24 hours or more.   If he was still judging the entries then he would have left at least a post letting us know what's going on within the 24 hour period.  He hasn't left any.  He didn't even log in to his YouTube.  This means something happened!  I hope all is well with Robert.

    I really hope nothing happened to Robert. I tried to contact him via youtube and facebook...

    You never know what might have happened to him. For all we know, this could be either a prank, or something VERY serious.

    I hope it's not serious. But if he's just having a hard time deciding, maybe he should choose a couple "finalists" to expand their video into something of a ten-minute video so they can show off more of Vista's good stuff.

    There are a lot of gems that haven't been covered.

  • Hey guys, sorry about that. It wasn't a prank by any means, my GF gave birth to a baby girl yesterday, so I had to stop in the middle of my reviews. This is a very serious givaway, with some very good entries. So I'm trying to give each one the review time it deserves. Sorry for the delay :(
