Owing to a total lack of vocal chords on my part, this week’s podcast is not going to happen. The good news is, this spares you the agony of trying to understand the husky remains of my voice (I hate Spring colds). The bad news is, this week’s podcast was when we were going to announce the winners of our iPone 3G competition. Instead, you get to read about them here.

The 15 entries we posted to our YouTube channel constitute the “shortlist” of best entries we received, although some of them didn’t quite meet the rules (you had to remove the battery, for example, and several of those phones clearly have batteries still in at the time of their destruction; plus, the opinion of our local police was that the PVC Cannon was indeed a prohibited weapon — entertaining nonetheless). The “short shortlist” of the five best entries were:

“Phonesmash” by Jacko (you’re forgiven for the 69 e-mails);

“Destroy Your Phone” by CyberGeorge;

“Nokia Execution” by MacGyver;

“iPhone Envy” by Lorenzo;

“Cooking A iPie” by MissionMan;

All of these were frankly brilliant, and I truly wish we had five iPhones to give away. Unfortunately, we don’t. We have two, plus a way cool speaker system from Altec Lansing. And the winners are:

Second prize of a 16GB 3G iPhone goes to “Cooking A iPie”. Interestingly there were several cooking-related entries, but this was the clear favourite — the pie at the end looks delicious, phone and all.

First prize of the 3G iPhone plus the Altec Lansing T612 speaker system goes to “Nokia Execution”.

Congratulations to our winners, and many thanks to all who entered.
