And The Winner Of The Coosh Headphones With Bundled iPod TouchIs… (UPDATED)

By David Ponce

HAL_9000, with the comment: “even if i by some miracle i won it, i’m sure my wife would steal it.” Our hearts go out to you, dear HAL_9000. You’ll get the joy of winning with the sorrow of losing, all at the same time. Good stuff.

For those of you wondering where the requisite Random.org screenshots are: I’m on vacation. I’m using some strange PC, with none of the software I use. And sure, taking and cropping screenshots is fairly simple. But I’m on vacation. Trust me that the winning number was 14, and that this is our little HAL_9000 friend here.

Once again, my apologies to all who didn’t win, but I do thank you all for entering. If anything, we’ve set a new record for the number of comments left in a month! And proven that y’alls are a bunch of lurkers. Don’t be shy of leaving comments. In the future, we’ll start rewarding prolific commenters, and it won’t hurt you to get a head start.

Merry Christmas!

Update: Turns out our little friend here doesn’t leave his correct email address… HAL_9000, dude, we got no other way of reaching you! You have 24 hours to get in touch with us, or your winning will be forfeited and given to someone else. And to avoid some random person claiming to be you, you will have to give us the email address you used to make your original comment as well. Failure to remember it, you guessed it, will forfeit your winning. Sorry dude, but we have no choice.

    I made a typo creating my account. I used the email address [email protected]com !

  • HAL_9000

    I have corrected my email address on my profile so it should work now!

    I'm confused by your counting. Am I not the 14th comment?

    Hi Chilepepper. I see what happened here. The Disqus plugin we use tries to synchronize our WordPress comments with its own records every time someone posts a comment on the site. Every now and then (rarely), a comment from Disqus does not get reflected into our WP database immediately. In this case, Ars and Radiodork both didn't show up in our WP backend right away, so the timestamp for their comment places them below #14. We used our backend (not Disqus') to determine the winner.

    Okay. I'm glad to know there is at least a reason. I don't want to make a stink, I just was curious. My congratulations to HAL_9000, enjoy!

    Yeah, but seriously, I'm sorry man. I can see how this can be frustrating. But we'll have other giveaways, I guarantee.

    Happy Holidays!
