IN THE FIRST (and possibly last) of a special new feature, we brought you The INQUIRER caption competition this week.
We had 65 entries to our competition, including some on our Facebook page, and we've now picked our winners. Thanks to all the entrants for entertaining us throughout the week.
Readers' choice: "Where is my PowerPoint presentation?! I know it's one of these stupid icons. This interface makes no SENSE!" [Al Hunt]
Best of The INQUIRER team's efforts: "This is the gap between what our users expect and what we can deliver" [Lawrence Latif]
INQUIRER team's choice: "... also, the START button was supposed to be this big." [James]
So big kudos to Al, Lawrence and James for those very apt captions.
And just as a reminder of the competition, we were at Microsoft's TechEd in New Orleans this week, where we snapped this thrilling image of two Microsoft executives standing at either side of a giant screen displaying Windows 8.1.
Even though it's tempting, we didn't want captions to summarise Windows 8 and its future Windows 8.1 service pack, as our spam filter might not be able to cope with the language used. We wanted your thoughts on what the guy standing on the right in the picture below - Eron Kelly, general manager for SQL Server Marketing at Microsoft - was telling the audience.
*Disclaimer: We don't have an actual competition prize but we can offer you our praise and amazement at your fine wit and imagination. µ
