Hiroaki Komatsu, the lucky Powerbook winner
Upon successful completion of the First Annual Hard Drive Toss Contest at the recent NAB Show in Las Vegas, Studio Network Solutions (SNS) announced the first, second and third prizewinners. Hiroaki Komatsu of Osaka, Japan received the grand prize 17-inch Powerbook while John Mills of Vancouver, Canada was awarded an iBook. Third prizewinner Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire received an iPod.
In the four hours that the Hard Drive Toss Contest occurred, approximately 500 people joined SNS in the festivities. Among those participants, an estimated 60 were successful in landing a hard drive into a garbage can placed 30 feet from the starting point. These skilled individuals were automatically entered into a drawing for a Powerbook or iBook.
Those who tossed a drive but didn’t land it in the garbage can were entered into a drawing for a Special Edition U2 iPod. Overall, everyone who showed up won by receiving a First Annual Hard Drive Toss Contest t-shirt.
The goal of the event was to campaign the latest workflow design software built by SNS, an industry leader in designing and manufacturing storage technology. It also served to demonstrate that without a proper Storage Area Network a person might as well “toss their hard drive in the garbage.”
