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).

    Conroy: On the scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your last Australia Network tender blunder?
    Rudd: Let's see, uh, ten times this big....?

    KR: I have a dream
    SC: That you were in a room filled with people with red ties, except for one guy?
    KR: What? No that the next stage of 3D screens will emulate 3D touch.

    Conroy: iPhone or HTC?
    Rudd: I did have an iPhone, then I took an arrow in the knee
    Conroy: Much blood?
    Rudd: About this much....

    "Oh, so that's how you hold an iPhone to get the best reception!"

    Conroy: *GASP* My new Samsung Galaxy Tab! How could you drop it like that?!

    Conroy: I already told you Kevin, I'm not adding to the blacklist.

    Kevin "So I open the Telstra bill and it was THIS BIG.
    Stephen ' NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. From Telstra?

    SC: Julia been teaching you new dance moves again?
    KR: Yeah, this one's called the polar bear.
    SC: Why's that?
    KR: Because we're all skating on very thin ice.

    Stephen Conroy looks on in terror as Kevin Rudd pushes down Prime Minister Julia Gillard after she suggests they consider canceling the NBN.

    FREEZE! The guy behind you is wearing the same tie.

    -Rudd whispers- Goddammit.

    "And I went up behind Abbot in his speedos, and then I...."

    "I have this many Internets"

    Conroy: 'So what advice did Siri give you about grabbing boobs?'
    Rudd: 'Grab them plainly... still got slapped by Julia'

    And when you want to count beyond ten, just ask a friend to help you out.

    Rudd: Just tell them that the NBN is powered by Hamster Wheels this big, and you'll have them eating out of your hands.
    Conroy: No way!, that is excellent help. thanks

    Kevin: Why don't we just take the tax payer's money.. And push it into the NBN?

    Conroy: You saw WHAT on the internet!?

    Rudd: So I walk outside the club and *flash*! They caught me!
    Conroy: Oh no way!

    Rudd: ...It's a series of big dance numbers. It's got the people from So You Think You Can Dance, so it's a lot of jazz hands, and all the singing is done by the past winners of Australian Idol.

    Conway: Even Anthony Callea? Whoa!

    Rudd: Yup, my kids downloaded a video of it last night. Took ages. Cannot wait for the NBN to get to my place.

    " I pushed Michael J. Fox into the Large Hadron Collider and he came back from the future with the HTC Sensation XE."
    "You didn't have to wait until next year!?!"

    KR: You need to grab the sauce bottle with both hands and give it a good shake.

    SC: That makes sense now that you've demoed it.

    Kevin Rudd: "Steve, If you block the internet by domain names, P2P traffic is going to grow THIS much."
    Senator Conroy: "So, It wont stop peoples freedoms?"

    Rudd describes length of arrow shot into his knee, Conroy stares in questionable shock over Rudd's use of an internet meme in relation to Australian politics.

    Konroy: what?
    KEVIN: It's sensationaaaaaal (said with spirit fingers and voice to match)

    And there it was, staring at me. The last one in white.
