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).

    Shown: Unfortunately, Australia’s confidence in Rudd isn’t quite as solid as Conroy’s confidence in his prowess as a fisherman.

    Yes Kevin, that's how many working families have had their computers infected by spams and scams that come through the portal.

    Rudd "And then I ate an entire waterlemon"
    Conroy "NO WAY"

    Conroy: So, these tubes that make up the internet. How big are they supposed to be?
    Rudd: The researchers suggest that they may be about this big.

    KR: So after the filter is put in place, only THIS much of the internet will be available to Australians, and we can tax people to access the rest!
    SC: Internet, eh? Is that the facetube thing?
