Nano nano winners!

... and so it is, just like we said it would be


After much deliberation we have chosen two winners for our iPod nano competition.


For a while it looked as though we would get zero entries. Then for a little while it looked like we would get 1 entry. Eventually though, the entries started flowing in via Facebook & Twitter and it was a pretty tricky decision in the end.


We had a lot of fun with this competition (even if in the early days we were worried about zero entries) and we will 100% be running more in the future so if you didn't win this time, hard luck and thanks for playing, better luck next time :) If you didn't enter this time, get the finger out next time!


So without further ado - here are our two winners, in no particular order :)


From @nfjkerr on Twitter we have a very very cool photo involving an iPhone and an iPad! This sparked a lot of debate in the pub on Christmas Eve as to exactly how the speech bubbles were incorporated but everyone agreed it was worthy of an iPod nano!

One of the questions/complaints people had about the competition was that you needed an iPhone or iPod touch to enter. @SirFistycuffs faced this problem himself and then kicked the shit out of it with an ingenious photo involving a fake iPhone. How could this not win a nano!?



So that's the two winners. However there really was some other fantastic entries received and it was a very very tough decision in the end. Click on through to have a look at the other entries.

The Cream. What I Listen To.

By: Conor 14. December 2010 12:51

Things are winding down for Christmas here at Redwind and for the first time in a long long time I found myself genuinely asking the question "What will I do today?". Sure there's been days when we haven't been overly busy or days when we've been on the beer till 6 or 7 in the morning and the only thing we are capable of doing is sleeping. But today is different, it's genuinely not busy and I think we all deserve a nice relaxed few weeks before kicking into what is going to be a big big year for us.

So back to the point, wondering what to do I considered the multitude of blog posts I've written in my head this last 2 years. But most of them are very programming and app centric and to be honest today I don't want to think about that. Instead I'll give a quickish insight into probably my biggest passion, music and listening to it. Straight from my iTunes "The Cream" playlist, below is my 20 most listened to songs with a five star rating. I'll include my playcount too because that's the sort of information I love seeing! It's a little bit indulgent but after all I am the person who insisted on creating two apps (#nowplaying & Now Playing!) just so I could easily post what I was listening to on Twitter and Facebook.
