  • Happy Turtle

    what do you guys loose making it international ?

    • Luka Mlinar

      But it is international. :/

    • Luka Mlinar

      My bad. Didn’t see the fine print there :/

  • Luka Mlinar

    Not to be rude or anything but i kind of feel sorry for who ever wins the HTC First. :D

    • MasterMuffin

      Don’t know if I’m lucky if I win or unlucky :D But seriously, it’s a good phone. I’d just take the FB Home away and be happy :)

      • Luka Mlinar

        Yea i only later remembered that you can turn Home off. Guess then it’s a sweet giveaway and probably the best one yet (if i am not mistaken).

        • MasterMuffin

          OUYA was cool also and I think that Corsair Voyager Air was the best giveaway price so far, this coming right after it

          • Luka Mlinar

            OUYA was the gift everyone wanted :D
            If i have gotten the Corsair I would have sent a msg back saying; give it to someone else. It would just sit here and collect dust :/

          • MasterMuffin

            Well :/


  • zuned mistry

    Plz give it to me zuned

    • Luka Mlinar
