Win An HTC Sensation XE With Lifehacker

We're in a generous mood as Christmas approaches, so we'll be giving away some awesome prizes all week. First up: thanks to HTC, we've got an HTC Sensation XE Android phone, valued at $999, for one lucky reader. So how can you win this phone?

The Sensation XE is nicely kitted out, and it should be even more impressive come 2012 when it gets upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich. But you don't have to wait until then to win the handset we're giving away.

To enter, just write a caption (in 30 words or less) for this picture of Senator Stephen Conroy and Kevin Rudd:

The caption we judge the most amusing will be the winner. Extra points for suitable technology references, and we won't give a prize to "And the knife was this big", because that's far too obvious. Entries close Wednesday December 14 at 10am, so get cracking. Full terms and conditions here (and the handset as it ships is locked to Vodafone, if you were wondering).

    KR: This iswhat I think of your NBN idea *gestures small*
    SC: Oh no you didn't!

    Rudd: "Was watching the cricket classic catches on the NBN using live streaming technology. This is my version of the classic clanger!"
    Conroy: "What the?"

    Kevin: "I hear Gizmodo wrote an article about that freudian slip of yours at Press Club"
    Stephen: "You mean an article that doesn't include me AND the NBN? Fucking fantastic!"

    "Shut up kid, can't you see I'm trying to get Laurie Oakes' attention?"

    Kevin: There are .xxx domains available now, lot of potential mate.
    Conroy: Why do you think I am putting NBN in Australia

    Rudd: So anyway I got my nails done and they still aren't dry.
    Conroy: No Way!
    Rudd: Yes way, I nearly didn't have time to get a diagonal striped tie, boy would I have looked foolish.

    Rudd: Is it bigger than a bread bin?
    Conroy: Can I fit it in my mouth?

    Kevin: You’re selling internet censorship the wrong way, Stephen. In China, they call it ‘massaging the truth’. You see, like this…
    Stephen: 'Massaging the truth'... That f--king fantastic!

      Small typo correction:

      Kevin: You’re selling internet censorship the wrong way, Stephen. In China, they call it ‘massaging the truth’. You see, like this…
      Stephen: 'Massaging the truth'... That's f--king fantastic!"

    Kevin: Now, Imagine this... some magical way of shifting information around the entire globe...

    Conroy: IMPOSSIBLE!

    Kevin trys outs the hands free feature of the new iPhone.

    Another broken screen - it is siri-sly time to switch to Android

    K Rudd: Have you seen Therese's, their quite a handfull

    SC: How's the new iPhone?

    KR: Even with the new A5 chip, iOS 5, and cloud, Siri's huge brain still cant find a way of getting my old job back.

    (discounted the nametags as words)

    KR: When you're talking about booty down my way over a scone or two, we're talking this big.

    SC: That's fucking fantastic.

    "well when i was in new york the biggest set at the club was about this but i got the smallest one in the group"

    Re-entry to fit within the word count!
    Poor Conroy found out fishing involved more than sailing past the phish with a piece of string – you had to hit them with detailed programmatic specificity first!

      Oops, edit:
      Poor Conroy found out catching phish involved more than sailing right past while dangling a string – you had to hit them with detailed programmatic specificity first.

        One more edit because I suck like that:

        Poor Conroy found out catching phish involved more than sailing right past while dangling a string – you had to bait them with detailed programmatic specificity first.

    By personifying one himself, Kevin Rudd was able to demonstrate to Senator Conroy that an internet filter could also slow down WiFi access, even on his beloved iPhone.

    Rudd: "Hey Stephen, get this: One day, an elephant, a cockatoo, and an NBN technician walk into a bar..."

    Conroy: "What is this, a joke?"

    Kevin: You realise your filter could block 3D adult entertainment..?

    K: New funding for online 3D "education". Think about it the potential...

    K: ..You think surgeons will benefit from the NBN?
    Conroy: You mean th-
    K: Yup.

    Rudd: I went to check out the HTC Sensation and I swear it was like this big.
    Conroy: Ahhhh it must be awesome like an ice cream sandwich.

    Kevin Rudd: Remember when computers where about this size?
    Steven Conroy: Wait computers are smaller than that?
    Kevin Rudd: I’m guessing you have never heard of a smartphone then....

    When I do this with my robe on apprentice - the blue sparks erupt from my fingers and go everywhere....

    KR: No. I agree that "carbon fibre nano tubes" should be on the filter but you have to take off "latex allergy"
    SC: 'I dunno'
    KR: Seriously it's for gloves!
