    Ben Winwood's entry - Canon EOS 3000 N. Wikipedia says it was released on Feb 2002.

    Just... why? all those gameboys and old consoles will be worth more and last longer then some shitty overpriced laptop.

    Indra Arifin's entry - looks like a Sony Cybershot P9. Wikipedia says it was released in 2002.

      At least this info gives Ben and Indra another chance to enter before the week is out.

    Amazing to think that Geoff's IBM System 360 (model 65??) likely cost hundreds of thousands (millions?) when it was released and is now being offered as a trade on a tablet that likely has more power and memory than that beast ever had, what a crazy world of tech we live in. Game over man.

    I forgot to put the firstnamelastname convention in my latest entry, if need be, I will re-submit it.

    Michael Ortega's entry - Blackberry. The first Blackberry wasn't released until 2003 according to wikipedia.

      That's correct, I'm afraid. Please remove my BlackBerry. Missed it by THAT much.

    Franky Sudargo's entry - Magellan Meridian 2mb GPS seems to have been released sometime around 2002 ~ 2003.

    There is a mistake with my entry for some reason. Dime Domazetoski (Entry 6) should actually be the entry for Graham Jupp (fire sticks). Please fix the name thanks.

      Dear Fontgod,
      Do you know who won week 1, because nobody else does.

        Yes it was announced on the week 1 page. Can't recall the person's name but it was a Commodore 64 and disk drive hooked up to a Sony Bravia tv with some clever c64 looking wording on screen. Page loads too slow on my iPhone so can't easily check it as I'm away at the moment.

          Thanks for that! Can stop checking now. Don't know how I kept missing it.

      Sorry about that Graham. Fixed.

        No worries Danny, mistakes happen. I wonder what caused the glitch and if any of "Dime's" other entries belonged to someone else. There's always next week to try again.

    Noooo. All those lovely old cameras look like they work? You're mad if they do. I want to enter but I collect old stuff so I'd hate to win and have to give up whatever I entered with! Good luck.
