Geek Dictionary Contest: We Have a Winner!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 25 comments

Congratulations Brian Webb of Longwood, Florida!

Last month we announced that we are running a Geek Dictionary contest whereby entrants can win a $100 Newegg gift card just by submitting a definition.

Today we're proud to announce that Brian Webb of Longwood, Florida is the winner of one of our three gift cards. But there's still more up for grabs! All you have to do is submit useful definitions to the Geek Dictionary. The users with the most votes for their submissions will win. Easy peasy, right? Right.

(Pro tip: if you write definitions that stick to the tone of the dictionary you will probably get more reader votes.)

So what are you waiting for? Start cranking out helpful definitions for all the newbies that are frequenting Tom's Hardware but don't understand a single, solitary word of what we say here.

Be sure to check out the contest rules before you enter.

    I like how you ding FoxNews for its "half reporting", but you loose points and show your own hypocrisy by not pointing out the "half reporting" that goes just as much, or even more so, at CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC.

    Really, it's only a simile, he doesn't need to compare the article to all other news channels/papers/outlets that have dodgy reporting to make his comment fair.

    ^ yea but Fox news has to vomit their news out after adding their own crappy opinions in it, which is not journalism, journalism is actually plain reporting not adding your own opinions and biases to the mix, That my friend is called gossip

    Again, your hypocrisy is exposed when you refuse to believe that the other major networks are not doing the same thing..

    Well then you don't watch the news very often. No major "journalism" based networks exist by your definition.

    Back to the topic, the winning definition was............

    http://www.computing.net/userinfo/203496 is the URL to my profile. I am not exactly sure which word won the contest but you can see a listing of the definitions I submitted there. I was hoping the article would include more information about me since i own a computer business and am the head of testing for an open-source software development project but I understand why they did not and still appreciate the gift certificate.
