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).

    R: They said that they were uploading it to a 'cloud'.
    C: How does it stay up there? Aren't they like all , you know, vapour-like
    R: I'm not sure, the name just makes me think of things that are soft.....

    "Where the only thing that stinks more than KRudd is Conroys breath"

    KR: You see Conroy, people all over the world want unrestricted internet access
    SC: WHAT?!?! So you're saying people don't want the internet filter? No one told me!

    Rudd: So these women, they were something...
    Conroy: *Thinks in head* - I better adjust my pants, this story is making me....

    Rudd: "Any-ways, I was got my new 'rig' last night, placed my 3 tera-byte hard-drive in it and boy was it beautiful"
    Conroy: "What!!!, You have a 3 tera-byte hard-drive? I only have a 120 megabyte floppy-disk!"

      Disregard first post, did not see 30 word limit. Remade caption below:

      Rudd: “So I got my new ‘rig’ last night, placed my 3 terabyte harddrive into it"
      Conroy: “What!!! A 3 terabyte harddrive? I only have a 120 megabyte floppy disk!”

    Conroy: Don't we look a like today?
    Rudd: Yeah, you are like an iPad and I am a Galaxy Tab! Merry Xmas Apple!

    Conroy: Really, Julia just gave you a present, why, what for? I don't believe it!
    Rudd: Yerp, just like that, vote best Deputy PM ever!, wonder what else she has in store? =)

    So I said to Dolly "If I turn them like this, I can get SBS".

    SC: May I do some NFC with you, sir?
    KR: You'll have to wait, I'm receiving a crypto of the new Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.

    Rudd: So, Conroy, how many fingers am I holding up?
    Conroy: Derp!

    Conroy: I don't care how much you watch Dragonball Z, you can't retake the Prime Ministership with a Kamehaha!

    SK:i've been watching your hand gestures for ages and you do seem slightly robotic occasionally.Do you even know you are a bloody Android?
    KR:You mean Terminator.....I'll be back.

    Rudd: the HTC Sensation XE lifehacker is giving away, is locked to vodafone!
    Conroy: No! Damn!

    KR: The new 'HTC Sensation XE' is this big
    SC: Get out of town.
    KR: and really fast too.
    SC: Imagine it running on the NBN, imagine it....
    KR: ohhhhhhh wow

    Rudd: I strategically shoved all ten fingers in the development of an ambitious long-term plan engagement, with accompanying benchmarks and measurable outcomes . . .

    Conroy: All ten fingers, no toes ?

    "hey KRudd, you going to be PM again?"
    "I was... Until I took an arrow in the knee"
    "You serious!?"
    "yeah, it was THIS long!"

    Rudd: "...just imagine you're tuning one of those old radios, and pretend her nipples are the dials, they all love it!"

    Conroy: "really, you're sure that works?

    KR: I like big butts and I can not lie
    SC: All the other brothers can't deny
    KR: That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
    SC: and a round thing in your face....

    "So, do you see this well researched report confirming that filtering the internet will be effective, popular, and not slow down traffic at all?"

    Rudd: "so I said to her 'those aren't spirit fingers....these are spirit fingers!' "

    Conroy: "wow Kev, and did she bring it on?"

    Rudd: "oh yeah!"

    KR: Remember when Egg Shen made lightning with his hands?
    SC: Yeah, man! That was cool!
    KR: The Chinese can actually do that now. For REAL.
    SC: WHOA!
