A Very Busy Windows 8 Day

by Kevin October 16, 2012 20:10

Today was a very busy Windows 8 day for me.

First, I pre-ordered the 64GB Surface with Windows RT and the black touch cover.

Second, UCF News for Windows 8 finally passed certification and was published in the Windows Store.

Finally, I submitted UCF News for Windows 8 for a chance to win a Samsung Series 7 slate in the Generation App Great Slate Giveaway.

October 26th can't come quick enough.

Has anyone contacted you yet about the Great Slate Giveaway.  I got the same screenshot you posted but wondering if they are waiting to after the Oct 26th deadline to notify winners.

I am still waiting. I am pretty sure I made it in time, but it sure would be nice to know.

Was poking around to see if anyone had gotten one (or heard anything) yet and found your blog.  I am pretty sure I was one of the first to register - but I haven't heard a thing... You hear anything yet?

Have you been notified about the "The Great Slate Giveaway" yet.  I'm sure I got in but still waiting to here.

My  Slate Giveaway  submission was in on 10/04/2012 and I haven’t been contacted either. Your blog is the only place I’ve been able to find  any mention of winner notification.

I haven't received anything yet either, despite entering my app on the day the giveaway began (at least my first email about it was in late Sept) - and at that time there weren't even 2000 apps in the store, and mine was live, so I can't imagine how I didn't qualify Smile They were really nice and emailed back immediately to tell me that they are still processing the entries. They didn't reply about whether I'd get a notification in the event that I failed to qualify - so I guess if I don't hear back in another week I'll email again. I wonder if these have a keyboard or not? (probably not, as that's another 100 bucks I think...)

Ah sorry I meant to add that I emailed them just today about it, and that was the response.
