(Space)Time for a Giveaway!

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Events" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.spacetime.us/

"SpaceTime 3.0 by SpaceTime Mathematics is a revolution in mathematics software with 2D, 3D, and time graphing with MobileCAS® for algebra and calculus. With features only available in Mathematica and MATLAB, SpaceTime is the most powerful cross-platform mathematics software ever developed for computers and mobile devices."

We're back with more copies of SpaceTime 3.0 to give away! Just like the contest that was held in May, we have one all-platforms license and two platform-specific licenses up for grabs. And, as always, the rules are simple. We've adopted a back-to-school theme for this contest, so to be in the running, simply make a post in this thread telling us how you'd use SpaceTime in an educational setting (or a commercial setting, if you're not a student or academic), and also the answer to "cos (0 degrees)", because we know you love number crunching. ;)

You have until 11:59am (GMT) on Monday, September 1, 2008 to get your entries in. Winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

Because of the server move we had to do last night and this morning, things are a bit back-logged on me getting the 31 Days of the Dragon contest up on Digital Home Thoughts. It will happen today for sure, but it won't kick off until tonight - sorry about that! Watch for it. In the meantime, here's an updated list on some of the contests that are still going on, and some that are ending very soon:

Win $1,000 In Innovative HanDBase Contest

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Pocket PC Events" @ 05:00 AM

http://www.ddhsoftware.com/handbase.html

"DDH Software is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its acclaimed HanDBase mobile database application. To mark the occasion, the company announces it is reviving its "HanDBase Applet of the Year" contest, seeking the most innovative uses for its popular HanDBase mobile database program for PDAs and smartphones.The goal for this year's contest is to demonstrate how easy it is for anyone to develop a mobile solution for either work or personal use. The company will reward the Best Commercial Applet and Best Personal Applet with "HanDBase Runtime" licenses (a US $1,000.00 value) which will enable the winners to turn their entries into commercially-available standalone mobile applications."

If you use HanDBase on your handheld and think you've come up with an innovative way to use it, now is the time to polish your database up and enter it in the HanDBase contest and take home $1,000. If you aren't using HanDBase, you can download a fully functional trial for 30 days and develop your winning entry with that. Submissions are due June 30, 2008 and the winner will be announced on July 31. I think this might be the first time they've had the contest since producing a version for the WM Standard platform.

http://www.astraware.com

Happy Friday everyone! Not only is the weekend quickly approaching, but we have another awesome contest to help the day pass more swiftly. The good folks over at Astraware have given us 4 copies of Astraware Casino to give away to our readers. Two of the copies will go to our wonderful Smartphone users and the remaining two copies will go out to two lucky, and equally wonderful, Pocket PC users.



As some of you might remember, I reviewed a copy of Astraware Casino a couple of weeks ago and I have to say, this is one of the more enjoyable games I have played on my Windows Mobile device. To enter our Super Friday Contest, all you have to do is reply to this message and let us know which version you would like - Smartphone or Pocket PC. It wouldn't hurt to tell us how much you missed us while we were gone as well. Remember, flattery will get you everywhere! (I'm totally kidding by the way! Just let us know which version you would like to win!)

The winners for this contest will be announced on Wednesday, April 16th, 2008. As always, we will only accept one entry per user and all entries most be entered by 11:59PM PST on April 15th, 2008! Good luck!

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Events" @ 09:05 PM

http://pocketpcthoughts.com/news/sh...easure-2-0.html



A day before the Better Measure 2.0 contest was supposed to end, we were left fighting a server hack, which didn't give a lot of you the chance to enter. A little unfair, of course. So, we're extending the deadline for contest entries to 11:59pm (GMT -6) on Sunday, April 13. Be sure to get them in!
