    Simon Gnieslaw: Whoa. Dude. I think it's safe to say you want this the most.

        Wouldn't you be better off selling it?
        I'm sure it's worth more than a Duo 11 so you buy yourself one afterwards and have extra cash left to spend on something else?
        That way you give someone else a chance. :-)

    I have submitted my entry yesterday, is there a delay before it shows up? or should I send again?

    @Andrea Gibbins, Im just a Giz reader here but I suggest you check the entry guidelines again and resubmit for a better chance. I nearly burnt a hole in my screen with an iron thinking you must have written something in lemon juice, but nothing appeared.

    Damn, my dad has an awesome piece of tech from way back but no way he would be willing to trade it.
    And you would need a truck and possibly a small crane to pick it up anyway.

    Already on page 2, I don't think that many people will see this. Nice car btw I don't think anyone need bother with week 4 it looks like the competition is already over unless someone has an old Ferrari they are willing to trade up for a laptop.

    Hi Danny, did my entry come through for third or fourth week entries?

    Hi Danny, I entered a photo yesterday morning, did it arrive safely please?

    I entered a photo over 24 hours ago; it doesnt seem like this weeks competition has been updated since about midday 19th? Could you please verify that my picture have been received and the the competition is still being updated?
    - Peter

    i sent through an entry too, but cant see it. Not sure if I've done something wrong. I have another cool pic to post - but want to know - do you actually need to swap it for the laptop? Its possibly / probably worth more than the prize?

    Hi, my entry for this week still hasn't been put on the site and I uploaded it over 24 hours ago.

    Hi guys, all entries are now live. They look great!

    I've emailed everyone who's entered this week individually to make sure I've matched each photo entry to the correct name.

    Sorry for the unusual delay. Was under the weather for last day or so, but I'm back making sure all your great entries go up asap each day.

      Hi there, I submitted an entry yesterday. Can you please upload so I can get a few friends voting for it and giving it the 5 stars it truly deserves!! Ta :)

        Hi Natalie and Rachel. Your entries came over the weekend and weres added Monday morning.
        I've also emailed you confirmation. Thx!

      Hi, I have submitted my entry today and would also like it to be uploaded so I can start rounding up votes asap! Thank you!

    Hi, sorry to bother you but I was wondering if my entry came through. I think my web-browser has issues loading the form as it types outside the boxes and also, the photo upload didn't update so it looked like a file wasn't attached but I refreshed and redid it and it stayed the same so I submitted it.

    Thanks in advance. :)

      Hi Sarah. Your entry came over the weekend and was added Monday morning.
      I've also emailed you confirmation. Thx!

    I have submitted my entry today, is there a delay before it shows up? or should I send again?

      Hi Sandra. Your entry came over the weekend and was added Monday morning.
      I've also emailed you confirmation. Thx!

    I too uploaded my image over 24 hours ago, and it still hasn't appeared. Should I send it again?

      Hi Luka. Your entry came over the weekend and was added Monday morning.
      I've also emailed you confirmation. Thx!

    Is it possible to send 2 different images for the same product ???

    Im liking your entry Rachel.... gutterminds of the world unite.

    Just making sure my entries were received, as you never get a confirmation email. Cheers!! At least the chance for some votes before 10 am!

      Yep, I liked the thinking behind that one too, 5 stars from me Sean (I hope for your sake its not your "good arm", snigger snigger)

    I had a go at deciphering the first and last line of morse code in John's entry.... nice one, although I was hoping there may have been a little easter egg in that one. Got my vote anyway.

    I'm wondering if anyone bothered to see where the QR Code led to in my "sea anchor" printer entry or if that was all a bit too wishful thinking on my part? Im hoping that at least Danny gave it a shot. :)

    Kristina, just letting you know that at least one person got your joke. :()
    (clue, look closely at the microphone area of the phone)

    Hey Danny, any chance my entry which i submitted yesterday evening will be included in week 4?

    And that's a wrap guys. All entries updated. Great work! They'll be judged over the next few days so I don't think it's too late to get some last minute voting in. Thanks again for such great entries.

    Forgot to put the note in the photo..bum..guess it's not valid now??
