It’s with great pleasure I get to announce that we passed 5 thousand followers on Twitter yesterday. Over the last 12 to 18 months we have seen explosive growth on the platform and have built an active and engaged following which few other Irish Technology sites or blogs have managed before.

It was just 2 weeks ago we were celebrating winning “Best Science and Technology” website at the Web Awards and as a team, we couldn’t be happier to follow it up with this latest achievement.

To celebrate reaching this amazing milestone, we’ve organised a great giveaway with fantastic prizes for our Twitter followers.

Altogether we have 3 prizes to give away. We’ll give one prize away each week for the next three weeks with more details of how to enter below.

So what are these prizes I hear you say!

climote have given us a climote Hub to give away! This prize also includes full installation in your home as part of the package.

With climote, you can control your home heating from anywhere. Whatever the weather or wherever you are, you can arrive home to a warm house. Whatever way your day works out, you can reset, boost your heating or even turn on your hot water – from anywhere, all while saving up to 20% of your energy costs.

If you win this prize, the climote HUB will be installed in your home and you can download a free App to enable you to control it remotely from your Smartphone or iPad. The climote installer will then give you a full demonstration on how to programme your new climote HUB and how to use the App, Online & SMS services.

Samsung have given us a state of the art WB350F Smart Camera to giveaway!

This compact zoom camera comes with 21x optical zoom capabilities and a 23mm Wide Angle Lens, allowing users to create images with striking depth and detail. Whether zooming in on a subject from distance, or capturing wide landscapes, the device delivers sharp detail and bright images on every shot.

The WB350F is packed with a host of smart modes to help users get the best results every time and is the ideal companion for those who want an elegant and impressively equipped camera. Its compact, leather-feel shell comes in three colours and houses a suite of state-of-the-art settings and technology.

The WB350F has an impressive 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, eliminating the need to use a flash at inopportune moments or at events – as the superior sensor needs less light than its conventional counterparts, without sacrificing image quality.

Doro have given us their PhoneEasy 508 to give away!
