Wow, how time flies! It’s almost Holy Week, and Easter Sunday is only 2 weekends away. That weekend also marks the public debut of Apple’s iPad. In the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to hold a giveaway here on my blog. So what are the prices at stake? DeskWhiz promo codes, WalletWhiz promo codes and.. the Starcraft Anthology.

For the younger readers who may not be familiar with Starcraft, it is generally regarded as one of the greatest games of all time. For those already familiar with the game, it definitely brings back memories of countless hours playing through the original Terran, Zerg & Protoss campaigns, then blasting through the Brood War expansion pack.

DeskWhiz & WalletWhiz are iPhone apps developed by my company, Numlock Solutions. DeskWhiz is an all-in-one digital photo frame application, while WalletWhiz is a budget application with a unique calendar interface and traditional categories interface. Both are available on the App Store, and are compatible with the iPhone & iPod touch.

The giveaway will have 3 winners chosen by random. The giveaway ends on Sunday, April 4, 2010, at 2359 GMT +800:

  1. First prize is a valid, unused digital key for the StarCraft Anthology available through the Blizzard Store, and 1 promo code each for DeskWhiz & WalletWhiz.
  2. Second prize is 1 promo code each for DeskWhiz & WalletWhiz.
  3. Third prize is 1 promo code for either DeskWhiz or WalletWhiz (choice depending on winner).

So, what do you have to do to win? First, leave a comment below, sharing your favorite memories of playing through StarCraft. Or, you could let me know why you’d want to win a copy of StarCraft, DeskWhiz or WalletWhiz. Then, after you leave a comment, tweet the following text (or something similar), as long as the link & hash-tag are retained:
