TI APP Development Contest Results
Posted by Eric on 29 September 2001, 22:10 GMT

Well, it's sure been quiet around here lately, but TI has finally announced the winners to their APP Development Contest, which ended on August 15. The winners receive a paid 3-month opportunity to develop application software for TI, a trip to a calculator conference, and lots of other goodies. Congratulations to the winners.

Update (Eric): TI has notified me that there was an error on the page that has since been fixed. Brandon Sterner's Symbolic Differentiation App was tied for first place, rather than coming in second.

For the ignorant morons who access this site, here's a post I added to the Phoenix v5.0 article a few days ago:

The next time who ever goes so close to MENTION a first comment on this board will get their comment, along with all replies, mercilessly deleted.

I'm sick and tired of this crap. I want to come home and not see YOUR comment board flooded with pointless BS that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the topic, other than a "congratulations" or a "wow i like this HEY FIRST COMMENT!!!111"

NO.

If you want to post BS that gives you the false sense of acceptance, go to Slashdot or another TI site. Don't do it here.

I refuse to tolerate this any further.

This conversation ends now.

Please stop your incredibly insolent behavior. Nobody likes it.
I just deleted four of the five comments on this board for a reason, and I could keep it up all night if I have to.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

Let me be the first one here (posting) to congratulate you.

I may have to change my mind about downloading and playing games. (which I currently haven't done.)

I was very curious during the judging period, so I inquired how many entered the U-16 contest. TI said it was 4. There you have it. I too must say "holy crap", my flight app won first in z80 U-16. Hooray! Congrats Barrett, and Micheal.

do you think TI will use the 'almost no competition' as an excuse not to give me my PS2?

Congrats contest winners! Hmm...looks like it's possible to win TI's contest with any program, you just have to enter it. :)

That was true in this case, because there were few entries (although there were many good ones for the 68k platform, including E.W.'s EQW and Mike Grass' and Scott Noveck's programs).

lol.... you would have got a couple hundred bucks worth of crap if you were under 16 and submitted something that says "Hello World!" and then waits until you press enter... there were still prizes left over for both U-16 categories, as well as the over 16 Z80.

You must be pretty frustrated with me Micheal. Sorry. However, I still know you're better at asm than me.

Actually, one of my first suspicions was that almost everyone at DS would be judges for it. But, since you and Jason entered, I guess not everyone was (or anyone).

I'm not frustrated...Ask anyone that knows me well and they will tell you I was/am obsessed with getting the calculator robot thing. Which I will be getting now :) (YAY!) Considering I entered a one-quarter finished and buggy application, you deserve to win.

does anyone know what the robot thingy does? is it expensive?

If one was to buy one, I think they're $89 or so. They let you use a 83+ do move this robot around and it has motors and stuff. From what I've heard it's a piece of junk and isn't very good, but I'd love to play with it and make it ram walls and stuff.

$89 without the calc. So, $89+$130=$219. $219+$300=$519. $519+(computer stuff price)=lots 'o' free stuff:)

My app wasn't even a quarter finished. All it had were definitions of a bunch of flight terms, and an extremely crappy/buggy flight simulator.

Well, I can't speak for the others, but I didn't judge. I am pretty sure Dan did, and I have no clue about Brandon.

Brandon Sterner was one of the prize winners, though, so how could he be judging?
