idea Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-





We promised something special on 11/11/11, so here we are! A uniqu[e] Old is Gold Gadget contest! (thanks to Vijay for the idea!) The rules are simple. The person with the oldest verifiable electronic gadget in possession matched with a awesome write-up describing 'Why you still own and love it?' will get:

1 x AMD Phenom II 1090T CPU + 1 x ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard

The contest is open to everyone, Indians and people from foreign countries alike

So to win:
  • Like Erodov's Facebook Fan Page and the Contest Page:

    Erodov Facebook Page (Erodov | Facebook)

    Contest Page
  • Share this contest page on your Facebook wall: Simply copy paste the following line and post on your wall:

    I am competing in the [E] Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! CPU and Motherboard worth ₹ 26,000/- http://www.erodov.com/forums/erodov-old-gold-contest-11-11-11-special-prizes-worth-26-000-a/47101.html

    Make sure you tag Erodov in your post! (use @Erodov)
  • Post in this thread (if you have not registered on Erodov yet, you can do so now): A photo of the oldest gadget you own (it is mandatory for you to take a photo of the gadget now with your Erodov username and 11/11/11 written clearly on a piece of paper. Erodov.com must also be clearly mentioned in the photo.)
  • Post along side the photo: Why you still own and love the gadget? The writeup can be as small or as large as you want. This will be the decider/tier breaker for the contest.
  • A video submission (uploaded to YouTube or Facebook) combining the above TWO is even more welcome. Instead of writing about the gadget, speak to your audience (as they might end up deciding who eventually wins.) Of course you need to mention Erodov.com in the video

I would say posting a video would increase your chances of winning by at least a factor of 3x Also, the gadget may be in a non working condition as well (as long as you can justify in your write up/video why you still own and love it )

Winners are governed by the following fine print, of course:
  • The contest is open for to all members from 11th Nov 2011 to 11th Dec 2011. If you are not already an registered member, you must first register as a member on Erodov.com. Registration is free and can be done here.
  • You can submit multiple entries in the contest.
  • You must follow all the steps outlined above (including liking the contest page and posting about this on your Facebook Wall page.) Inviting your friends to the contest gets your extra brownie points with the judges!
  • Decisions of the contest judges are final. The final winner may be picked using a open public vote! Democracy! Hallelujah!
  • The prizes are not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
  • The prizes will be shipped to people residing in India only. Winners from other countries will have to bear any additional shipping and tax costs.
  • The CPU and the motherboard have both been bench marked under extreme cooling for a overclocking event. However, both of them are still under warranty and are fully functional. The products will be shipped as is and no returns/refunds will be accepted.
  • Everyone (inside and outside India) is free to participate in this contest. Erodov Staff members (and their relatives) are not eligible to win in this contest.
  • Facebook is not associated with this contest in any way.

Re: Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-


Philips Radio Model BCA 456 U



Year Of Manufacture : Pre 1952

Belonged to my maternal grandfather. Passed on to my mother. I have it since 1998

Since I was little , I always wanted all things in my house to work. Since this radio was lying unused and neglected, i decided to try and make it work. I managed to clean it up and got it working somewhat however, the couldn't get the tuner to work properly. My dad seeing my enthusiasm took it to a renowned repair shop in Delhi where they asked for a whopping Rs.5k just to open it and service it let alone search for parts. We got it home and it had been lying unused for the last decade except for the few times I turned it on everytime we cleaned the house. The light still works as does the speaker and i'm told that the tuner is stuck to the AIR frequency in Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh where my grandfather used to live, so technically, it should work if i take it there

Entry No. 2



Pan American Airways Boeing 707 Electronic Model Airplane

Year Of Manufacture : 1958

Gifted to my father by his grandfather when he was very little (2 or 3)

This has very high sentimental value for me as my dad had kept it in pristine condition. Me being a overenthusiastic little boy(6 yrs) managed to sneak it out of his cupboard one day and while playing with it managed to break both its wheels which were made of metal. My dad was so angry that day and my a$$ still winces from the thought of the slaps I got that day from him. So, it was again locked away for another couple of years and one day when it was taken out for cleaning, my brother had a brainstorm and we got out his Mechanix set and added the rubber wheels which made it work perfectly again. My dad could not have been prouder and all was forgiven. Since that day, this plane has been kept proudly on display inside our living room for all to see and is turned on whenever we have small kids visit. It really is quite an exceptional toy for its time and i'll try to post a video of it working soon

I may not win this contest, but it was nice to share these with everyone. I still have lots of other gadgets which i would love to share...

you can buy/create a radio transmitter to get the radio to work. basically, if the radio tuner aint budging, we create the waves to it's taste

In fact today all my family members(including cousins) and friends consult me before buying any gadget.

wow!! great start!!!
