UPDATE: Final weeks for this.. wing answers along to our email address: comps@shinymedia.com[09/03/10]

It has to be said that not everyone ‘gets’ computers. So it’s a good job those more ‘IT literate’ people are around to help their friends and family with home IT issues! You see, they have to put up with a lot – while they do it all with a happy heart, they all come across ‘those’ situations that are so odd, confusing or downright funny that they simply HAVE to tell the word about it! Which is where www.wherestheanykey.co.uk comes in.
It’s a place to share your IT fail stories.

And that’s why we at Shiny Shiny and our competition sponsors Microsoft(c) love them for it. So to salute these unsung heroes of IT, we’re offering one lucky Shiny Shiny reader the chance to win a brand new Dell laptop complete with Windows 7 Home Premium.

How to win that PC

To enter is tell us (Twitter style) in less than 140 characters (we won’t be too strict if it is a bit over) about your favourite IT fail. You know it could be anything from confusing a CD-ROM drive with a cup holder through to the time you spent an hour wondering why your PC wasn’t working when all that was wrong was that you hadn’t plugged it
into the electricity mains.

Check out http://www.wherestheanykey.co.uk to get an idea of what you need to be saying and then ping your story to comps@shinymedia.com with Microsoft Shiny Comp in the header.

We’ll be wrapping up the competition at the end of March and announcing the winner soon after.

  • believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

  • because of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and skin the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

  • They are good as new, and have no build time since they are already built. And there is no change in warranty, so no risk. The laptop I am typing on right now is refurbished and was purchased for over $400 less than the same laptop new.

  • The wide usability of them have given birth to different sections of laptop users. People like businessmen, students, bloggers, BPO workers need different specs of laptops.

  • well there was this day that i woke up feeling genius. so i took my old pentium 2 desktop and tried out some stuff that i’ve always wanted to try out, like what does the red switch button on the power unit do when you change it from 240v to 110v? and also What would happen if you put 2 cd’s in a cd-drive, would it display double? This were questions that needed an answer…so tried them out, only to blow up my lovely computer(i called it Grandfather’s comp) and braking and totally messing up cd-drive…..
