Happy Birthday to Us: SCI FI Tech turns 1 — and we're giving away presents!

Yes, it was exactly one year ago today that SCI FI Tech made its first splash into the vast digital ocean that is the Internet. Since then we've aimed to bring you a nonstop cavalcade of juicy technology news, hands-on gadget reviews, and delicious high-tech eye candy. It's been quite a ride, and things are only going to get faster, cooler, and more fun. We've got big plans for 2007 to bring you more stories more often, with the same down-to-earth perspective and reality-check attitude that we're known for.

None of it would be worthwhile if it weren't for you faithful readers out there, and we know we're pretty blessed to have such a smart, talented, and — let's face it — good-looking audience. We really appreciate your points and clicks, and now it's time for them to pay off for one lucky reader…

Win DVDs! We're giving away a hot property here at SCI FI: the first two seasons of Battlestar Galactica on DVD. This is the whole package, people, including Season 1 (with the miniseries), Season 2.0, and Season 2.5. To win, all you have to do is come up with a haiku praising your favorite gadget — be it Treo, iPod, or email-reading plastic rabbit. Post your poetry in the comments section below, and we'll pick the winner of the contest next week.

Thanks, folks — it's been a great year, and here's to many more to come!

CONTEST CLOSED: Okay, that's all the entries we'll take. We'll announce the winner in a separate post. Thanks, all!
