First of all, congrats to Michael Chinander of Chicago, IL for winning the Obsidian Series 800D Jelly Belly candy corn contest hosted by Tom's Hardware. His guess of 50,650 was the closest to our count of 50,712 pieces of candy corn. There were over 3,500 entries, so well done!
Runners up were Justin Langness of Long Beach, Erin Cleary of Portland and Timothy Finnegan of Tucson. All of our winners were within 300 pieces of the actual count.
While making kick-ass hardware is serious business for us, we do like to have fun from time to time. Whether it's making jokes about how bacon makes everything better (aside from dessert), or laughing at some poor soul who fried some hardware in the lab, we can ham it up pretty good around our office. So, when George and I came up with the idea of filling the Obsidian Series 800D with candy corn, we had to do it.
