Here's a nice illustration of the capabilities of the Hazro wide-format display, the lead-off prize in our 12 Days of Christmas competition, courtesy of winner Geoff Oakshott. You can see not just how the monitor has more scope widthways, but also how its resolution can show enough detail to let you go "deep" with your images.
From both sides
I look after the news coverage on ZDNet UK, so my interests span the whole of business technology - though I do have a soft spot for Raspberry Pi, open-source hardware and emerging tech.
Karen Friar is news editor for ZDNet in the UK, based in London. She started out in film journalism in San Francisco, before making the switch to tech coverage at ZDNet.com. Next came a move to CNET News.com, where she looked after west coast coverage of business technology, and finally a return to her homeland with ZDNet UK.
Sometimes the only way to find out what someone is thinking is to ask them a direct question. So here it is: How are we doing?
A few months ago, we ran a competition for a matching black MacBook and USB modem, courtesy of mobile broadband provider Vodafone. Congratulations are due to the winner John Harris, who sent us this photo.
The first thing people told us about our recent Homebrew Challenge was that it was great to hear from other enthusiasts about their home tech projects. The second thing was that they really appreciated being able to pick up tips, especially money-saving ones, what with the cost of components and all.
Though the long, slow trek back to the desk no doubt looms, the festive season isn't over yet — at least while there is still time to enter our annual Christmas contest-fest. The first competition in our 12 Days of Christmas series closes tomorrow, so if you fancy winning a Hazro widescreen monitor, get over there now.
Sometimes the only way to get your point across, or to really describe what's going on, is to show a video. You might want to show off your latest tech project, do a video review of your latest gadget, take us onto a trade show floor with you or give us a tour of your company's server room.
We know that ZDNet members, especially those who've entered the Homebrew Challenge competition, want to share images in their postings. Good news — we've made changes to let you do this.
Friday is the deadline for our competition to win a spiffy black MacBook and a hard-to-find matching Vodafone USB modem. So if you haven't had a go yet, then get cracking and enter.
Here's a head-start on a massive competition — think £20,000 in prizes — for all those IT pros whose pursuit of tech doesn't end when the working day does.We know that many of you, when you get home and close the front door behind you, roll up your sleeves and get stuck into a project — not because you're paid to, but because you love to do it.
Congratulations to robnewby, the security-minded ZDNet blogger who has won a trip to San Francisco for RSA Conference 2008. He came first in our competition by making the most valuable contributions to Sentry Posts, our group blog dedicated to security management discussions.
